(More customer reviews)We purchased the matching dryer to go with this washer and they are fantastic! They are quiet, fast, and energy efficient. We purchased the drawer bases which give you more storage and raise the machines up waist level so you don't have to bend down when loading and unloading.
The only issue we had was with the brass "Y" included with the steam dryer for the cold water faucet. It leaked, but Samsung sent a replacement the next day!
We gave away an 8 year old set of Maytags that worked, but were both noisy...good ridence! These are so quiet and do a better job cleaning and drying our clothes than any set we have owned before. We have had GE, Kenmore, and Maytag. All good products, but these Samsung products are so far superior, it isn't even funny!
And don't let the "NASA" designed controls fool you, they are very easy to use with preprogrammed settings (e.g. whites, towels, perm press, etc.). And the steam in both the washer and dryer allow you to remove wrinkles and sanitize your clothes. This washer also has the ability to remove 99% of bacteria in cold water using silver ions.
Don't let our 5 star rating and the other person's 1 star rating make up your mind. We researched Consumer Reports and other web sites and read lots of consumer opinions before making our decision. Plus you get an energy credit on your taxes for purchasing these Samsung products!
One recommendation, purchase the extended warranty as these are high tech with digital controls. Ours are protected for 5 years along with a "lemon" warranty. If the other consumer who gave 1 star had purchased this, they could have already replaced the defective unit or got their money back. Although we are suspicious seeing that Samsung give a 1 year warranty and they claim they can't get Samsung to do anything about their washer...so do your research before writing off this product. We highly recommend this washer although it was the most expensive one we researched...worth every dollar!
