I have purchased two Samsung appliances(fridge and dishwasher), because of the great feature sets and great value. When it came time to purchase the matching range and microwave I didn't. I will never purchase a Samsung appliance again. Now, as with most appliances, depending on the type, it is usually made by someone else, or they make other people's certain type of appliance. It's a trade off of manufacturing between the brands. So not sure who makes samsungs dishwashers, refrigerators, and etc... But I will not fall for the possible failures again, as I am two for two.
So you've never had an issue with their dryer?
