I love how efficient this dryer is! I am so glad we made this purchase! I love all the features it has to offer and I have only used 4 of the features on the dryer! I can't wait to use the other features soon! next week we will do family pictures so I will try out the steam settings! The only thing I would change is making the chime louder and some instructions on how to connect my phone to the machines would be great!

I was expecting a super quiet dryer, but it makes this awful thumping noise. My laundry area is in my garage, but it is so pervasive that I can hear it anywhere in the house. If this can't be fixed, this dryer is going to be replaced with something else. The 'normal' noise that the dryer makes is about the same as the 15 year old dryer that it replaced, although it does have a lot more low frequency 'rumbling' noise, you can feel it when you put your hand on it. I think if you had this in a house, especially on a raised floor, it would be too noisy. Also there was a razor sharp burr on the drum seam, it tore up a towel that I used to test it. I sanded it down, and that took care of that, but I shouldn't have to be fixing a new dryer. Quality control anyone? It smelled really bad when I first used it - like bad plastic. My clothes smelled awful, and I had to re-wash them. I had to wipe the drum out with alchohol, and run it on high for about 4 hours before I could use it. Even now the exhaust still smells faintly of plastic. For me, there are too many settings. I mean, you're just drying clothes. But if you like automation and high tech, you will like this. There are enough choices to cover most situations, so you can just pick a setting and hit start. You probably will have to read the instructions, as many of the settings are not intuitive. For example, the default Normal setting only works at Medium temperature. You would think you could just make it Low, but you can't, you have to find another setting that will allow you to set a Low temperature. It has a few manual settings, which is great because I can just set a time and temperature. You can't change any settings while it's running like most dryers. If you want to add a few minutes, you actually have to stop the dryer, change the time, and then restart it. There is a drum light, I wish it stayed on indefinitely, but it shuts off after 5 minutes. I don't know why, it's LED, and probably uses almost zero energy. The control panel is printed white letters on light gray, and it is impossible to read in certain lighting conditions, like those in a garage. Most of the buttons are touch sensitive (they don't click or move), except the Power and Start. Those are the membrane type, which I don't like because they eventually crack. Some items are not available in certain settings, but the button still chimes when you push it. For example, in the default Normal setting, you can't adjust the temperature - it is fixed at Medium, but you can push the Temp button and it chimes at you like it is supposed to change the temperature, but it doesn't. The drum is huge, and you can effectively dry a ton of clothes. As far as the actual drying, it does a good job. It has plenty of heat on the high setting, and the low is low. The Steam function works well, and it takes the wrinkles out of clothes really well. The door works well, although it only opens to about 160 degrees; I was expecting it to open 180, and it almost broke when I swung it open the first time. It does not have a 'hard' stop, so you have to be careful. The glass is clear and makes viewing easy. Connections are standard, and hookup is easy. The dryer connects directly to the cold water supply to enable the steam function. It comes with a Y connector and hose extension so you don't have to buy anything extra. The vent outlet is inset, which helps with wall clearance.

Dissappointed

By 

from Ohio

Comments about Samsung White Electric Steam Dryer:

For about nine years we used a similar Samsung dryer at our previous home and thought it was great. We sold that dryer along with the house this year. We immediately purchased this new Samsung dryer for our new home and assumed that it would operate at the same great level that we had become accustom to. It has not. The dryer does not dry the clothes properly and on several settings it leaves them damp or wet. A local serviceman is coming out tomorrow and we hope that it is a fix that is simple and under warranty, otherwise we will be very disappointed.

      Cycle choices designed poorly.

      By 

      from Philadelphia, PA, USA

      Comments about Samsung White Electric Steam Dryer:

      For a dryer with a multitude of cycles the engineers did not do the most basic thing; Give the buyer the ability to choose. You cannot choose which dry level and temperature that you want. For a dryer with 15 preset options they left off the most important one. Even most basic dryers give you a choice to make your own cycle. It took me 2 calls to the call center for them to figure it out that you can't choose certain cycles. The first person kept arguing with me that I wasn't following their directions.

          Comments about Samsung White Electric Steam Dryer:

          We found it the hard way. If you do not have enough laundry in the dryer, it may not even work properly. It will probably work like 10-15 minutes, and the cloths are not dry yet, but the dryer refuse to continue to work until you put more dry or wet laundry in there. It just refuses to continue. This is annoying because sometimes, we only have a few dirty laundry, but we could dry it after washing them.

          DO NOT ROTATE THE INSIDE - WILL BREAK!

          from Nebraska, USA

          Pros

            Comments about Samsung White Electric Steam Dryer:

            This dryer is MY FIRST NEW dryer! It seems to get all loads dry, even in a mix load. We have 4 kids and use this daily! Once a month I might have 1 load that gets twisted up and not fully dry, but an easy fix with the time dry feature. HOWEVER I am hesitant about owning THIS dryer because within a couple months we got an error message and it started making some loud noises. The warranty covered repairs and the technician was VERY knowledgeable. I learned quickly that this specific part breaks A LOT on these machines. The service company has seen MANY of these repairs on Samsung dryers (all covered under warranty), but doesn't get a whole lot of calls for Samsung washers. Just dryers typically. WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT EVER ROTATE THE INSIDE TUB! DO NOT GO AFTER THAT MISSING SOCK! DO NOT LET YOUR KIDS GET CLOTHES OUT OF THE DRYER! If the tub gets turned the slightest bit, this part (can't remember off hand the name?) BREAKS and your dryer becomes REALLY NOISY.
