About - Samsung DV422EWHD[WR]

The Samsung DV422EWHD[WR] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the DV422EWHD[WR] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Drying performance:
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.

Capacity:
Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.

Convenience:
For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.

Comment:
Owned dryer 18 months and the heating element needs replacement. Sears price to fix is 328. About half the cost of a new dryer. Samsung was selected due to Consumer Reports rating. Seems the reliability factor is not good. Is mine a one off or is this typical. Never had a heating element go out on other dryers over the years.
How long have you owned it:
