Got the red version of these in 2014 (no wifi) for $710 ea. 2 loads twice a week and have no problems. Wash a load of whites with bleach once a week and no problems with odors like some complain of. Friendly hint: VRT works best with full load of clothes. Less than 5 lbs or so of clothes and it will dance across the floor during spin cycle. But spins like a Cadillac with a good heavy load.
If you ever get that smell, it's an easy fix. Take of the drain hose it should be connected to the pump. And either soak and wash it well or replace...this is common on all front loaders. The ribbed hose allows bacteria and maybe mold to build up.

If Samsung designed its cell phones like it designs its appliances, you'd have never switched in the first place.

I built my home, loaded with Samsung appliances from Lowe's. It was a sale plus the military discount. Saved $1500 total for fridge, microwave, W/D, dishwasher...the whole 9 yards.

The problem with Samsung is, the quality of their main electronic parts. BUT, the REAL problem is... they discontinue their main electronic boards, the replacement part for that specific board was also replaced by another part number, so your only option for repair is the tertiary part number... WHICH WONT FIT YOUR MACHINE!!! Sounds crazy, but when the repairmen, yes multiple companies, all say stay away from their appliances.

I've had nothing but trouble with Samsung. I'm pretty handy in the electronic section of life so I've been able to get by for 6 years now but the amount of trouble shooting and down time of a W/D just isn't worth the $2-300 savings against a Kenmore or GE, LG and so forth.

If you value your sanity, buy anything but Samsung. Great TV and AR glasses, super crappy appliances. Just based on the facts of my life. I disarm bombs for a living, I wish I could just detonate these appliances.

Specifically as to the Samsung washing machines, there has been an issue with the "spider arm" contraption that spins the drum. Apparently in some of their older editions, the connections would deteriorate and the drum would basically fall off of the spindle.

There were huge threats of class action lawsuits . . . Samsung denied it was an issue . . . all kinds of stuff like that.

I would certainly hope that that has been corrected by now, but I have not seen any literature that says it does.

With that having been said, I have had a Samsung front loader for over 9 years and it has been working fine. This is in a family with four children where we do probably 15 to 20 loads a week. (We have slowed down some with kids going off to col\ege and life etc) But, if it would have broken, it should have by now!

I'm just wondering if I get a new set, if they will still fit on the same bases that I have. I certainly don't want to buy new bases.
I'm currently dealing with this issue. Bought the washer in 2013 and started to have a LOUD thumping sound during the spin cycle. Took it apart and the spider arm looked like it came off the titanic. Broken into 3 pieces with massive corrosion. New part $130 plus 1-2 hours of labor and the inconvenience of being without a washer for a week.

So far I've had to work on my Samsung dishwasher, Samsung dryer, my Samsung refrigerator is falling apart and now the spider arm on the washer. All purchased in 2013. It's shocking how low quality these products are.

Samsung products have greatly gone down hill. They load them with features at a "reasonable", but most will make it just past the warranty period and they Will breakdown on you.

I know this holds true for refrigerators, was not aware these were also to be avoided.

I thought this was common knowledge. Look up their refrigerators I believe there's a class action lawsuit going on. Their appliances are deplorable and that's putting it nicely.
Yes, yes and yes! My Samsung washer was a lemon. Kept giving error codes around 90 days after purchase and they tried to fix it three times and could not. I got a full refund under my state's lemon law. I also got a Samsung refrigerator that had a design defect and had to get rid of it after like three years because food kept spoiling from ventilation fan freezing. Never again for Samsung appliances.

I have had terrible luck with Samsung refrigerators. The ice makers always see to break and had it replaced 3 times in one of mine. The next one I purchased and will be my last, it just stopped working and they had to replace the entire door to fix it. My home warranty paid to fix it and cost over $900.00 to replace the door. After that fix, my home warranty company would not renew my policy due to this claim as it cost them too much. Now they never told me that but I am sure that was the reason as they lost money on my contract.

Bought a Samsung washer and dryer pair 5 years ago. First the washer developed a leak that would have cost $500 to repair. Decided to get rid of it. 2 month later the dryer stopped working. Say no to Samsung appliances.

Bought 5300 pair of Samsung washer and dryer 3 months ago for $321 each from Samsung.com which got upgraded to 6500 series due to 5300 being out of stock, this was from Slickdeals. Hearing bad reviews on Samsung but at that price I pulled the trigger. Deals that cheap did come twice in the past 6 months approx just FYI.

A Samsung washer and dryer are the worst appliances I've ever owned. I regret buying them on a "deal." It's not just the quality and failure rate, but ease and cost of repairs is very poor for the Smasung I've owned. Search for "Samsung Spider Arm" and you will see many people who exprience this problem. Should have stuck with Whirpool or Maytag. I read Speed Queen quality is very good and I may check that out next time. My next set of appliances will be made in America, not Korea.

My Sears repairman told us to avoid Samsung appliances and to get an LG washer/dryer. They look nice and shiny but they appear to break down easily. A relative of mine bought a $2k Samsung fridge and died around 2 years.. she's buying another one.. she felt that 2 years is a good lifespan for a fridge. That's insane that people have lowered their expectations like that.
