3 years ago, we purchase all Samsung appliances. Fridge, stove, washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave. Now, the dishwasher doesn't work properly, the dryer broke (cheap plastic piece melted to the steel part of another) and the guts of the dryer look like they're built by Matel. And all of the appliances are showing rust spots (we have stainless steel) because it's the cheapest stainless ever.in short. DO NOT PURCHASE SAMSUNG APPLIANCES.
I don't care if they're having the sale of the century. Do not buy them. The person who fixed our dryer told us to expect the washer to go next since they use ALUMINIUM within the drum which is up against STEEL. Any moron or engineer would tell you that having these two types of metal together is a recipe for disaster. It WILL rust out within 3-4 years, guaranteed. (The piece is the tri-spoke support that holds the drum in place). Basically, once it weakens one enough, it will snap and the drum will wobble until it collapses.
We're beyond frustrated by Samsung, by their response to this issue, and wish we would have seen so many of the reviews we now see out there. If we had the money to start a class action against them, we would. This company deserves to go bankrupt.
