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 wife and I have only used this machine for two months, and used many of the features for different clothes and material that I've never used before. The results were better feeling bed sheets, shirts, blankets, towels, etc. I didn't think settings would matter as long as the dryer is set to hot. The drying efficiency is also great in comparison to how long it takes. a normal dry time for my usual casual clothes takes 35 minutes, for 5 days worth of different outfits or a light-medium load. Also the steam feature something everyone probably wants to have but doesn't need, and i feel like it should be a standard. Also it didn't increase my electric bill much after using it 5-6 times a month. Also an added bonus is the cool LED light inside the drum. The only thing I can think of that it can improve on is the touch buttons have a slight delay.

My wife and I had a our dryer for approximately 8 years without any issue and we decided it was time to start searching for a new model. We shopped around and researched based on customer reviews. We also asked some of our friends their opinion. The final decision was SAMSUNG. The dryer had all the bells and whistles and it seemed to work great...at first. In less than 3 months the tumbler had stopped working. I am aware some items may have a faulty component...no sweat! We called customer support to have a tech come out. The tech was at our facility within 72hrs. He came and fixed the tumbler within an hour or so. Sounds like a happy ending, right? Unfortunately, 24hrs later the dryer stopped heating up and now we are back to square one. I am extremely disappointed in the quality of the product. I own several Samsung items and the quality has never been an issue. This will be the last time I purchase a Samsung appliance.

            Wonderful and easy to use. I like the steam option. Maybe my dry cleaning bill will go down with this?... The installer was very knowledgeable of the product and guided me through the easy get started process.

              Efficient and Effective

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

                This clothes dryer is loaded with features, and can incorporate steam to make a good dryer incredible. The lint filter is very efficient and easy to access and clean. Rarely but sometimes thicker parts of garments (elastic waste bands) and more robust clothing can still be damp after a normal cycle but that is mostly due to mixing various clothing styles along with terrycloth items. There is one peculiarity that I cannot seem to alleviate: Sheets, particularly fitted sheets will bundle into a ball even trapping other clothing in the bundle. Not only is this inefficient, it is rather frustrating. In all this is a very effective machine with several useful functions, a great design and is fairly quiet when in operation.

                            The dryer is noisy most of the time. Seems to only be quiet if running on high temperature. It has two different types of noises. A chirpy and a rubbing like noise. Both noises were apparent in the beginning. Now, one of the noises seems to have disappeared while the other one seems to come if I don't have the dryer on high.

                                I love my new dryer...not only is it gorgeous and high-tech, but it works great without shrinking my clothes. It has multiple temperature controls and various fabric settings as well as multiple time settings. It also plays music at the end of the cycle, instead of the loud buzzer that most dryers use. I love it! I thought I had a nice dryer before...now I have an incredible dryer. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a dryer that not only looks great, but works great too. I admit that it is a little on the pricey side, but this is one of those times that you are truly getting the quality that you are paying for.
