Hardly used in my second home and keeps breaking.
I had a feeling this was going to be a problem since some power unit and the gasket around the door broke after 2 years of hardly being used. Now one of the cards is bad and needs to be replaced. Too expensive to have it serviced so will try to buy the part and fix it myself. Customer Service from HD and Samsung was helpful but still angry that unit is failing after 4.5 years of light usage.

Constantly errors and has difficulty washing
I hate this washer so much. I will never buy a front load washer again. If I knew how many issues I would have with a washer I would not have purchased it. We've had it two years and it is the biggest pain. It's consistently getting an error, especially when I wash blankets and towels. I don't even have to the fill the drum very much to get an error. It takes a long time to clear the error and makes so much noise. If I could throw it out a window, I would. It also must be washed out constantly to prevent smelling and if you leave a load of wet clothes in for even a couple hours you have to rewash them.

Never Samsung Again!
I bought this washer 10 yrs ago. I’ve had it repaired twice, but what’s worse is all the rust that began just a few years into owning it. I’ve never seen anything like this on a new washer!! I finally just replaced this and the dryer because the dryer broke last week. Bought LG since they are rated #1 by customers. I promised myself I would take the time to warn others, so I am adding this review and pictures.

Cycle Selector Indicators Rubbing Off
The Cycle Selector Indicators (the words Normal, Delicate, Perm Press, etc) are coming off after less than one year of use. As the cycle names continue to rub off, I won't know what mode I'm selecting to properly choose the necessary wash type. I have been very gentle and the only thing that has touched these words are my fingertips and possibly an occasional drip of detergent. So unless you want to guess at what cycle you're selecting for your fabric needs, I wouldn't recommend this machine. I suppose I'll have to get out my label stickers and Sharpie marker. I expected this machine to be user-friendly for many years to come, which includes being able to see what cycles I need to select without having a tacky handwritten look. I think that this machine does a good job of washing but Samsung needs to use a paint/ink that doesn't come off with typical use. This is a common problem among owners in online forums yet Samsung claims no responsibility for this issue.

Easy to set up. Easy to use. Clothes are clean. Based on other reviews with moisture related problems, I plan on keeping the door open between washes to let it dry out. No small children here to worry about getting in it.
