bedding burritos
hi, anyone know how to prevent what we call "bedding burritos" in the dryer? when we put in sheets or quilts or blankets, they end up rolling up into a burrito, and only the outer layers get dry. unroll it and the inside is still wet. every time.
Response from Samsung CareAug 31, 2021
Thank you for your review. Next time you dry your bedding. Try adding dryer balls to the load. It should help the bedding from rolling up. ^Pat

    Defective Dryer, Poor Samsung Customer Service
    We made the mistake of purchasing all samsung appliances. The dryer is only 6 months old and the gas valve is already leaking inside the dryer. Requested service from samsung and they sent their authorized repair tech, whom after 2 services in my house, broke the dryer completely. they closed my ticket, saying it's working and non-defective. I argued with samsung with video proof of the broken dryer. Four weeks in and 6 calls to samsung, I was promised exchange or refund, but as of today, they're retracting their offer. Samsung, get yourself together and stop making empty promises. Future customers, save yourself the head and avoid samsung appliances altogether! See photo and video of after services by samsung's authorized center. Do yourself a favor and google reviews for uncensored reviews.

      Samsung Electric Dryer, DV405ETPAWR/AA model with steam and wool mark apparel
      In all fairness my model is the 2nd best one sold 6 years ago. I wanted the stainless drum and the steam. It came with a special setting for wool that is certified by the wool industry. That's a plus. When it works, it works great. Here is what I mean: **It's fast at drying towels, and heavy items on the correct setting. **It has lots of different settings for any type of fabric **It has a sensor for sensing when the load is dry. That's a great feature. It works to keep you from using more electricity than necessary. **The auto wrinkle prevention tumbles the load after it is dry to help keep things free from wrinkles **The Steam works great to freshen a garment or freshen a load. Lots of setting to choose from that work effectively with all types of textiles that you might clean and now need to dry without damaging them Bedding, Heavy Duty, Normal, Perm Press, Delicate, Wool, and Timed, or Air are all working to help you take care of your household items. Draw back: ** My only drawback to this Samsung Dryer is the heating coil. ** After the one year warranty the heating element burned out. I had it replaced. Ok, maybe just one of those things that happens. Bygones. ** After I vacuumed the hot air exhaust piping from dryer to outside (10 feet) we had the heater coil replaced and we checked that everything was clean as new, with no lint anywhere to be seen or vac'ed. ** The second heater coil burned out. the service tech stated it was a know issue that they were sensitive and subject to burning out. It was about this time my old 23 year old Kenmore, that never burned out, was looking pretty good. We re-vac'ed everything to the outside and replaced the heater a second time. ** Last month it burned out again and I had it fixed yet again. In my opinion, replacing the heater coil 3 times is 6 yeas of service is 3 times too many. Something is engineered wrong. With this service record and history, I can't in good conscience recommend this Samsung dryer. The year I bought this Samsung dryer, it was the 2nd one in their top of the line.

        Cracked Dryer Drum
        the dryer drum has cracked on the weld. a dryer drum should never crack; this part should last the life of the dryer (10+ years). i could never recommend a product with a quality issue like this no matter how many features it has.
        Response from Samsung CareSep 11, 2020
        It is difficult to tell if this is physical damage. To assist, we would need a service technician to verify this for us. You can reach one using the link below. ^Pat https://www.samsung.com/us/support/service/locations/
          Buyer Beware - DRUM CRACKED after 3 years
          I cannot recommend this product based on my experience with the quality of the materials and Samsung's customer service. The dryer drum cracked after three years and Samsung won't standby their product. The drum is not a wear item - it should last the life of the machine (that should be 10+ years for a dryer). Now I'm going to be stuck with a huge repair bill on a dryer that was expensive in the first place.

              After two years the drum cracked on one edge where is supoorted by the bearing wheels. Have never seen this before in such a short time. A new drum costs 120$. This is so comon that samsung has Recall for it. Extemely poor quakity. Stay away from it. I ve got the gas version but this seem to be happening to all. Check picture. You will start hearing a noise every time it turnes like if you were havin a belt with a metal buckle inside the dryer.

                Has some good features.
                I bought the the dryer over a year and a half ago. I really like the steam function but some of the other dry cycles don't dry all the way. Towels in particular will only dry all the way on the timed dry cycle. Overall a good machine. Another thing to note is the machine is really short and to avoid hurting your back get your close out I would recommend getting a pedestal.

                  Bought in July of 2016. This dryer has been problematic from the start and I should have returned it when I had the chance. The auto sensor never works. You choose a cycle type and the clothing is never dry when the cycle finishes. As others have mentioned, sheets and bedding just get turned into a big soggy knot. On June 23, 2018, the dryer started making a very loud squeaking noise which continued for several minutes before finally making a loud thump and stopping. There was a slight odor of burning rubber when it stopped. Its hard to believe the quality of these 700$ dryers are so bad they don't even run 2 years before failing.

                    Works great, replaced an old dryer and clothes come out warm, dry and wrinkle free!
