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. (Yes, you can accomplish this repair using only a cross-point screwdriver ). However, a cost of well over $250, for the part, after less than two years, is ridiculous! Samsung has a design/engineering deficiency with these dryers.
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. I have spent 3 hours on the phone in endless loops with Samsung customer support trying to resolve this problem to no avail.
Summary: I have had this dryer for over 4 years and love it! The shoe rack feature is a great benefit and the wrinkle release feature has come in handy several times! The sensor dry helps to save $$ and the timer dry helps to finish drying certain items that the sensor picks up as dry (carpets mostly). The chime song it plays when finished is wonderful!
Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Durable, Features, Inexpensive, Realistic color
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...was told there is a drying rack available, and there is a drying rack listed in manual, however it doesn't fit dryer (door won't close). Just confirmed with Samsung. False advertising.
Summary: Had this dryer only a month before it broke down, It took about 2 weeks to get it fixed, after going thru 2 different maintenance company, but before it broke down it work very well and after the repairs so far so good.
Summary: Stacked with the matching washer so I gained floor space. Easy to clean filter (In front and easy to reach). Much faster than my old dryer and I love the steam refresh cycle (I don't iron anyway). Quiet and plays musical tones when it's done. Enough cycles and control for all fabrics. The dryer rack listed in the manual doesn't fit (New door design).
Summary: This dryer is amazing! My laundry is never over dry which will make them last longer. It has a steam option so I don't have to iron most of my clothes anymore; a sanitize option so I can clean things that can't necessarily be washed. I just wish that it came with the dryer rack which I now have to buy separately.
