Worst washer ever!

WA 400 model<br />This washer machine has to be the worst product ever! I wish that there was a way to give this sub-par product a 0 star rating. It was not but one month after the 1 year warranty was up when it decided to break and spill the entire drum of water on the floor (plastic drain pump housing broke). Emailed and called the manufacturer and still to this day have not recieved a response. Replaced the defective part for about $40 and it worked for another 3 months. Just yesterday the machine broke again, this time it would not complete a spin cycle. Wish I would have read the many reviews on how poorly the product was built and how horrible the customer service dept. treats it paying customers.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Plastic drum (tub?) fell apart after 3 months of light use in a two-person household. The drum seems too lightweight and cheap for the job. It fell apart with an average load of sheets and pillowcases, leaving plastic shards and crumbles mixed into the wet laundry. The whole drum become disconnected and would not turn or spin.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Purchased this washer after CR recommended. Collects condensation on top panel when running - notified Samsung. Less than one month after warranty expired the plastic case holding the drain pump split in half and left the pump dangling and water flooding our floor. Samsung parts were out of stock and required a lengthy time to provide it. Would NEVER purchase a Samsung washer again!
