Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

CaMJa 7/13/2019

this one is bigger than expected-holds lots of bedding & large loads of clothes. spin causes some rocking-probably needs to be leveled again-once it gets going the rocking stops.

Ridiculous

Ladyroe24 5/15/2019

I purchased this washer 7/6/16 and already I am having to purchase another washer. It started 4/2/19 when the washer would get stuck in the cycle with 9 minutes left in the cycle and would keep repeating. I found reviews from others that say they too have experienced this. I did purchase an extended warranty so my purchase price was refunded by Lowe's. I had 6 different repair visits and they replaced several parts but the washer still has the original problem. When I purchased this washer, I expected to not have to purchase another for at least 10 years, not this soon for sure. I have the matching dryer and have had it repaired too. These are not good choices in washers and dryers.

Terrible spin cycle! Sopping wet clothes!

mrachael 1/18/2019

I bought this washer 2 years ago, with my rebate from Samsung for the recalled top loaders that were exploding. They made the spin cycle spin less hard, to prevent the exploding issues. This washer is finicky. If the load is not perfectly balanced (ie one pair of jeans with all tshirts and socks), it will end with a puddle of water in the drum and sopping wet clothes. Then you have to put back in on spin only, and it will spin out the water. This happens every 3rd load or so.

Power Failure...Machine Fails

SCBrown 1/6/2019

Does the job its supposed to do. That said after reading and researching online there appears to be an issue with these things not working after power failures. Power failures are not the manufacturers fault. There just seems to be absolutely no reason for the machine to stop working. but it does exactly that. Owned this model a little over 4 years now. First power failure happened at our home after we owned it about 6 months. Supports answer was to unplug it from the wall and let it sit for about 30 minutes and plug it back in. This has worked over the years put with less and less success over time. Until today. Unit will not start at all. All lights and dials operate as they should. Can make any selection we want for whatever mode we want to wash clothes. When I press Start/Pause it just double beeps and fails to start. Online research seems to indicate an issue with either the rear lower main board or the front control board. Both of these look very simple to replace. Problem is there is no error code to tell me exactly what the problem is. I've bought Samsung products over the years from Phones, Televisions, Kitchen appliances and this is very frustrating to the point were I may be switching to another company as these things start to wear out.

Maria388 12/17/2018

Bought this from Lowes less than a year ago and not only does it take forever to wash items, the ball bearings are now bad and repairs are over $800 bucks. More than I paid for the washer in the first place. Now I have to buy a new one and have this hunk of junk hauled off.

Junk

Seabrock 12/2/2018

Nothing but issues since day one. One year warranty is up, and sounds like the bearings are gone in the tub. To replace, I would have to disassemble the whole machine(basically every part) to replace. Bearings are approx 200$. Not worth the hours or money I would have to put in. Also not worth hiring technicians to do it as it would cost more than a new washing machine. Turned me off of Samsung for sure. With all of the major issues I've read about concerning Samsung washing machines, I'd suggest going with a different brand.

A few months after I bought it, it started leaking and the front rubber piece had to be replaced. I waited about 2 weeks for someone to come and replace it. Now two weeks without being able to do laundry is hard with a newborn at home because they are always messy. I tried explaining to the guy but he didnt seem to care.

This washer works great! It uses much less water than a top loading washer, which is a major bonus. My clothes are always clean and smell great, no issues with water sitting in the drum and causing funky smells. Love how much I can fit in a load. Also love the various settings for different types of loads.

I've had this machine for 6 months and have had to have 2 maintence request. The filter is incredibly hard to clean and twice when reinstalling the filter it leaks.

Posessed washer

Zoran 8/3/2018

My old washer died so it was time to buy a new one. Went to Costco and bought this one not expecting at all that it would be a washer from helllll. Just after 5 min of working it started to be really loud, shaking, walking and spinning around. It was a bit off level so i leveled it perfectly on all sides. Same thing happened again. Even I couldnt hold it down it was taking me around for a spin in the laundry room. Never expected that something like this could happen.

Machine does't hold up to use

Bearing the Cost 7/20/2018

We used this washer for about 2 years washing a few dozen loads per week when this supposedly ultra quite machine started making increasingly loud grinding noise (we could hear the machine running from across the building). A local repair tech identified the issue as spider failure / bearing failure, repairs that cost more than a new machine. The machine is out of warranty and predictably Samsung customer service offered platitudes but little else. The rave reviews of this machine are mostly folks stoked about their new toy; they don't reflect actual use or long term experience with the machine. This washer doesn't hold up to use.
