About - Samsung DV5451AG[W]

The Samsung DV5451AG[W] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas dryer models like the DV5451AG[W] 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:
We have owned this dry for 2 yrs and still have issues with it able to complete a drying cycle. Cannot dry more than 4 pairs of jeans; otherwise the HE error signal comes on and it stops working. Same thing with towels and bedding - takes all day of cycling off and on the machine to get a load dry. I would love to ship this back to manufacturer...
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
