Summary: This is the worst dryer we've ever had. It is less than 2 years old and this is what has broken: belt has been replaced twice, heating element has been replaced 3 times, now, heat sensor is not working and the drum is cracked. The washer has had many problems too.
Summary: The drum cracks in these units. This is the second time mine has cracked and I have to pay for the service out of pocket because Samsung will NOT assist. They don't care about faulty products. I have spent $200+ in repairs and my unit is less than 3 years old.
Summary: Samsung dryers have nice features BUT, after LESS THAN TWO YEARS, the drum's factory weld cracked from rear, approx 1", before migrating even further...very common problem...google it. The drums are easy enough to replace yourself.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY A SAMSUNG DRYER!!!!

Summary: DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY A SAMSUNG DRYER!!!! THERE IS A MANUFACTURING DEFECT WITH A WELD IN HE DRUM It will fail in 2 years AFTER the warranty and will cost you several hundred dollars to repair.
Summary: Works ok, capacity is not great...if you fill it up & dry on high clothes can still be damp after 1.5hrs. Mattress pad/sheets dried better in old front loader. Nice range of cycles though. Not impressed by steam cycle...clothes seem wet and take forever to truly dry. Biggest problem..
Summary: Problems with this dryer: There are 4 levels of dryness with the humidity sensor. For the 3 higher levels the clothes come out way too dry. For the "damp dry" level the clothes are, well, damp. Plus you are stuck with the Hi or medium temperature settings when using the sensor.
Summary: I've only had this for a few months, but all is ok so far. If you look at the $500-level dryer construction, esp. around the door, etc., there's a major quality difference it seems. So stepping up to this level when on sale is worth it IMO.
