About - Samsung DV56H9100EG

The Samsung DV56H9100EG is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the DV56H9100EG 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.

Crack in the drum after 16 months of use
Best Uses
We contacted Samsung and Lowes (where we purchased the dryer) to verbalize our concerns. We we put on hold several times and the problem was not resolved. We then researched other comments on the internet about this particular model and discovered several other buyers had the same problem.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Worst dryer + poor customer service
Large Capacity
Leaves Clothes Damp
Best Uses
We bought the Samsung washer and dryer combo four months ago. We have had continuous error messages on our washer, that customer service will not address. The dryer went out over a month ago. Samsung sent a tech out who has misdiagnosed the problem three times. When you call Samsung they give you the run around. I have even been hung up on.
