Customer Questions & Answers

Is it stackable with Kenmore dryer?

I have a kenmore Dryer stacked on a flat top washer from Kenmore. For Samsung reps, can you verify what you said in another question that I CAN NOT stack a different brand dryer on this washer, either with a Samsung stacking kit or the Kenmore or a Universal stacking kit?
Asked by: Bob
Thanks for the question. I can't speak for other brands' designs. What I can tell you is that Samsung Stacking Kits, which are necessary for securing the dryer to the washer safely, are designed to fit Samsung products. - Ms. Samsung

Drain hose extension

My current setup has the washer on the right and I'll be reversing this as all front loaders doors swing to the left. To do so, I'll need to extend the drain hose about 12-18" to reach the existing drainpipe. What is the diameter of the hose? Is there an extension available from Samsung?
Asked by: DCArea
Hi DCArea, The diameter of the drain hose on the WF42H5200AW is approximately 1". Samsung doesn't currently have an extension hose kit available, so I would suggest working with your Home Depot Appliance or Plumbing team for assistance selecting a compatible extension hose that can be attached to the original using a steel sleeve. Thanks for the question! Ms. Samsung

I am replacing a Samsung washer (WF330AN) that is stacked with a Samsung dryer (DV330AEW/XAA). Will this stack with this washer? Thanks in advance for your help.
Asked by: Keithb

Can you stack the washer on top of the dryer?

Because of where the water and drain hook-ups are, stacking the washer on top would allow for a nice fall to the drain-pipe inlet. The washer on the bottom would leave the drain line flat, which would cause difficult draining.
Asked by: BigAl
Thanks for the question. When stacking the HE Front Load Washers and Dryers, it's necessary for the Washer to be placed on the bottom for several reasons, including weight and stability. The SK-5A Stacking Kit accessory is necessary for stacking and can only be installed with the Washer on the bottom. The drain hose should be routed into a stand pipe that is at least 18" and no more than 96" high. For more information, please refer to the User Manual which can be downloaded as a pdf file from Home Depot's website. - Ms. Samsung

I just had this washer delivered today and was wondering if the door latch being loose is normal?

Asked by: Tammy
The door should close securely. The catch is not exceptionally strong. After the wash cycle starts, the door will lock.

This one replaces a recalled top loader, which we found we didnt like all that well (questionable cleaning and out of balance a lot). Have only had it a week, but so far am pleased with this one. Has fewer cycles than some others, which is good since only a few are used. Offers more variations (like extra rinse) compared to our earlier front loaders.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quiet at first, but as time passes, I can hear it upstairs ... Everything about this washer is exactly what I wanted!!!! When I first started using it, it was quiet and the music to inform me the cycle is finished is just soooooo cute! I got this washer in August. It's now October and the spin cycle is just crazy loud! I can hear it upstairs and sometimes I wonder if it's something else at times. I think this is an issue with this model since I did read other reviews with the same issue. Wondering if there's anything that can be done about that ... that's quite possibly my biggest issue. That and that sometimes the soap doesn't completely wash off the clothes but inbelieve that's from the type of detergent being used (HE vs non-HE) .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective on first start up This unit was delivered and hooked up. Leveled machine. Did the initial rinse and calibration. During spin, machine actually moved around room and shook violently. Definitely out of balance. Keep in mind the machine is empty at this point. Called Home Depot, and even though they just delivered it today, told us it's not their problem after they drop it off. Need to call Samsung. Asked them for the number and they said they don't have it....really?? First and last time buying from Home Depot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy Samsung Waher or Dryer!! I bought a Samsung washer this past year. It was performing just fine until one day a screw in the lid of the washer rusted out and the glass pulled away from the frame of the lid. I did not buy an extended warranty and the one year warranty had expired 2 days earlier! I called Samsung to try to get them to fix it for free and they would not. I believe a screw in the lid of a washer should be rust proof! The repairman I called says that the Samsung brand of washer/dryers break all the time and he would NOT recommend buying them. My Samsung matching dryer that I just purchased in January has started making a horrible noise while the clothes are tumbling and now I have to call a repairman for that as well. Stay away from Samsung!

The unit was great...for the 16 months it worked until the bearing wore out. Now it sounds like a jet taking off during spin and Samsung only offers a 12-month warranty, so I have to pay to have it fixed. This is not a minor repair - the whole thing basically needs to be taken apart to get to the bearing, and then it's recommended the outer drum, door seal, and possibly the spider be replaced along with the bearing, so it's looking like hundreds of dollars. I've read it's worth repairing if you do it yourself, but might as well buy a new unit otherwise. I'm pretty handy, but I'm not going to dismantle a hulking machine with mechanical and electrical components that spins at 1200 rpm's and hope it all works right when I get it back together. Despite the fact that I would not recommend this unit, I'm going to buy the same one, ONLY because I have the matching dryer in platinum, and have to have a stacked set. Just hope the first time around I got a lemon. Again, it worked beautifully - when it worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love everything about my Samsung Top Load Washer Our loyalty is to our Samsung product from purchasing, phones, TV's, Tablets, etc. My family loves our new Front Load Washer. It is very user friendly for anyone to use. it quite and energy efficient. I love the fact that my Samsung requires less water and less detergent still getting my clothes extremely clean. My Front Load has many different washing cycles, rinse cycle, and temperatures to select from. It has a steam cycle that is absolutely exceptional and let’s not forget the ability to sanitize cycle. I would definitely recommend Samsung Front Load washer machine if you are in the market for a new washer. This Front Load saves on water, electricity, and detergent costs. Samsung stand behind it products. I give the Samsung Front Load 5 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy!! I bought this because it was rated high and it was beyond horrible! It left all my clothes so so so wrinkled and yes I put the spin on low! I was having to iron EVERYTHING... even athletic wear! It was as if someone crumbled them in a ball. I tried everything to avoid this with no luck. I would stand there so that as soon as the cycle was over I would get everything out to avoid sitting. Nothing worked! It was so frustrating! If I could give O stars that would be more accurate because it doesn't even deserve one star. It was worse than a nightmare. Sent it back and got the LG which I love!!!
