About - Samsung DV56H9000EP

The Samsung DV56H9000EP is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the DV56H9000EP 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.

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

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.

We went through three dryers in six weeks. Two had a vent sensor light that came on for no reason 75% of the time and the third one had a grinding noise when turned on. Samsung people ranged from very helpful to uninterested. Home Depot arranged for new LG appliances to replace these.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
