            Horrible washer
            I bought this flex washer in 2019. The upper flex washer door clip broke. I had to replace the whole unit on top which was extremely difficult to find. Once the technichians came out to fix it, they saw that door clip on the replacement unit was also broken. They had to resend this product 3 times due to the same issue. Once here, they replaced and ran a quick wash which then flooded my ceiling. It was found out that the seal on the 3rd washer replacement was defective. Horrible experience. We've been without a washer for 3 weeks now.

                Flexwasher not working due to 18:8J code
                Both controls display flashing error code 18:8j & washers wouldn't start. Filed a Samsung service request & repair company came out. They said the display control boards were malfunctioning & needed replacement. After replaced the flexwasher operated correctly. They had the part onhand so Samsung knew how to fix problem before they arrived! The repair cost was over 1/4 of the purchase price. I found a website discussing this error code hundred of times. This seems to be a common issue for this flex washer that was bought in 2017. This complaint should be a recall issue that Samsung should address.

                  2nd Washer Down
                  this is the second samsung washer i have owned in 5 years and it's dying. the first one was under warranty and samsung repair mjan broke it even more. samsung didn't have the parts so they told me to buy a new one. i fought them on it and they bought me a new unit. this new one is now 2 years old and it has started to throw error "3c" codes (drain issues). of course it's outside of warranty so i get to pay stupid repair prices to get a new pump. samsung says the "dd motor" is covered for 10 years, but they don't cover any of the other parts associated with it. i should have just put the extra $300 into a better brand. this is the last samsung product i ever put money into.

                    Very poorly designed. Piece of Junk!!!!
                    we were so excited when we purchased this washer but our excitement lasted only 6 months. the first issue was with upper washer door latch broke when trying to open it normally. it was under warranty so i got that fixed but now the same issue happened again after 8 months of use, the latch just came off. very poor quality and design for such an expensive washer. just to fix the broken latch the entire door must be replaced and it took 8 hrs to fix it . the tech admits that he received lot of complaints and the latch is prone to break easily due to poor design and quality.apart from this we just started receiving error codes 188j and now i cannot use the lower washer i regret upgrading to samsung washer/dryer . very expensive to fix these issues outside the warranty.

                        It lasted two years only... Dead with 18:8J error which points to board issues.... >$700 to fix it... I've paid for it $1,300 and expected at least good quality.... Issues from month one: Cannot wash top and bottom at the same time - as softener is going overflow and your bottom washer is stuck with water... Then you will need to drain bottom washer, curse samsung for a few days for stup%d design while waiting two days until softener dries out .... and now the last drop - the board is dead... no top or bottom washer works...

                            Don't buy this washer! I've owned this washer for 1.5 years. I loved it until the control board went out two months ago. I had factory service from Samsung to replace the control board (I didn't have an extended warranty). It was only slightly more expensive than the warranty. Ever since the control board was replaced, I cannot use the top washer without it leaking. The place where you put fabric softener overflows every time now. It is not clogged. I've run warm water through the fabric softener compartment several times. Still overflows even with water, not softener. It drains fine. The conclusion is that I can't even put a small amount of anything liquid in there without it overflowing during the cycle. This is a poorly designed machine. The upper washer fabric softner intake allows water/softner to overflow into the inside of the machine between the lower washer tub and the outside of the unit, causing the sensor to stop the machine. See attached picture. The sensor works great but it takes 30 minutes of moving the washer back and forth to get rid of the water sitting on the inside of the machine and soak it up with a towel underneath. I also have to take a hairdryer to the inside of the tub at the top and underneath the unit to get the water to dissipate enough that the error code goes away and I can use either washer again. The sensor stops both washers from functioning during this problem.
