Product Details

Samsung 7.5 Cu. Ft. Merlot Front Load Electric Steam Dryer, Model DV42H5400EMER

Features:

  • 7.5 cu ft. Capacity
    Our 7.5 cu. ft. capacity dryer has 13 cycles and lets you dry 2.8 laundry baskets in a single load.*
  • Steam Dry
    Eliminate odors and freshen clothes with Samsung’s powerful Steam Dry cycle. Unlike other steam dryers which require users to manually refill a water reservoir, Samsung’s Steam Dry cycle requires no refills. Skip the dry cleaners and leave your iron in storage – getting smooth, wrinkle-free clothes is as easy as pressing a button.
  • Dryer Rack
    Protect your special-care items like sneakers, sweaters, and stuffed animals from high impact tumbling. Place them on the dryer rack for a safe and even dry cycle -- without the tumble.
  • Sensor Dry-Moisture Sensors
    Sensor Dry combines the latest Samsung innovations to provide a drying cycle that’s timed to perfection. Plus, moisture sensors protect your laundry from heat damage by automatically shutting off the dryer when your clothes are dry.
  • Smart Care
    Skip customer service and troubleshoot issues straight from your smartphone. Smart Care interacts with your washer and dryer to perform an immediate diagnosis and offer quick solutions.*
    *Available for iPhone 4/4S/5/5S and Galaxy S1/S2/S3/S4/NOTE/NOTE2.

MY OLD DRYER WAS TEARING UP MY CLOTHES SO BAD THAT I HAD TO GET RID OF THE WASHER/DRYER SET I HAD AND OPTED FOR THIS SAMSUNG STAINLESS STEEL LOOKING SET. MY OLD SET WAS A PAIN TO GET TO THE LINT BOX AND DID NOT TRAP LINT WELL AND GOT ALL OVER THE PLACE... THIS DYER IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY....IT IS SMART!! IT CAN TELL WHEN YOUR CLOTHES STILL NEED TO BE DRY A LITTLE LONGER....AND HAS GREAT FEATURES TO CLEAN YOUR DRESS CLOTHES AND EVEN STEAM THEM IF NEED BE.... THE OVERALL DESIGN AND FEATURES OF THIS MACHINE ARE AMAZING!! I WAS SKEPTICAL AT FIRST BECAUSE THE DRYER WOULD RUN FOR A FEW MINUTES AND THEN STOP AND START BACK UP AGAIN. I BELIEVE IT WAS JUST SENSING WHAT TYPE OF CLOTHES AND HOW HEAVY IT WAS BECAUSE IT HAS NOT MADE THAT SAME ISSUE SENSE THE FIRST NIGHT USING THIS MACHINE..... THE BEST THING TO IS THE AMAZING LINT TRAP.....YOU CAN COMPLETELY REMOVE THE LINT BOX AND PULL APART THE BOX TO REMOVE EVER PIECE OF LINT. I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO DO THIS ON ANY DRYER THAT I HAVE OWNED....HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MODEL!!

Dryer broke a few days before warranty ran out. No power - a common and known fault - so stated the technician and information found on several web sites. The technician was very difficult to work with & showed up hours after supposed scheduled time - totally unprofessional. His car leaked oil on my driveway. The dryer works but one pixel on screen is weakly lit, but it's working! Now the washer machine is acting up, of course it's out of warranty period.

      Comments about Samsung 7.5 Cu. Ft. Merlot Front Load Electric Steam Dryer:

      I really love the color of my new washer and dryer! Problem is the washer arrived with a deep scratch and the dryer when placed on top of washer much too tall for me! I have to use a step stool and even then hard to read the panel :( wish there was a different design option for stackables. So i have a mixed review about the purchase and functionality of this product...but its pretty :)

          The dryer works well except for a metallic noise we hear sometimes. Seems to be an improvement over our old dryer from 2002.

              Comments about Samsung 7.5 Cu. Ft. Merlot Front Load Electric Steam Dryer:

              Great size, beautiful color. Nice options, more than we or most would use. Still can't wait to try steam cycle. Getting ready to install not as fun. Stacking assembly stinks for someone with limited space as it requires a deeper depth by staggering the dryer on the washer (check out the stacking kit first). Door on both washer and dryer stick a little. Had to switch the door around for our use but not hard to do. New so we will see how well it works.

                      There is no heating inside the dryer after only 16 months of purchase. It doesn't matter whether in sensor mode or manual mode, it's like air fluff. Very disappointed that Samsung's poor quality control and short warranty.

                          Excellent value. Very quiet, very efficient. My wife does most of the laundry and she loves this machine. Lots of features, including steam mode, non-wrinkle mode, rack dry and the ability to program it with a custom run. It's a very fine looking machine too. Very happy with our purchase.

                          I bought this unit brand new for 5 months with about average use, and then it started making a high pitch squealing/rubbing noise, followed by a light burning smell. It seemed really good at first.
