My samsung stove has never been satisfactory. When I can burn food on a burner set at '2', and boil water at '4', there is definitely a quality issue. never again.

I agree with Samsung washers, especially the top loaders. I also never liked LG washers either. They don't clean nearly as good as older washers (early 2000s and older). Samsung even recalled top load washers because of impact injuries back in 2016.

The latest issue involves a black stainless over the range micro that is not even a year old. Already a sensor is failing and requires replacement that involves removal of the micro.

The ONLY things made by Samsung that have held up are their TVS, which we are very pleased with.

Anyone have any similar issues with Samsung?

Lesson learned, next time we're going to buy Maytag or Whirlpool, but I'll give it to Samsung, they are sleek and stylish.
Haven’t had any issues yet but based upon many complaints I know trouble is coming sooner than later. When we bought our house three years ago it had pretty new Samsung appliances. Since then we’ve heard many stories of their poor quality, hence our apprehension over them.

Change your vent to a smooth metal pipes vs flexible as the corrugated surface gets clogged easy.

In addition- if you are using dryer sheets- try to soak the filter in hot water and scrub it with toothbrush- the dryer sheets are not recommended- they cause a hard invisible film on the filter- may lead to a house fire, but first sign- the laundry is not getting dry...

I have several Samsung appliances and love them all. 11+ years and going. I recently replaced a dishwasher (it was Frigidaire Pro that was original to the house built 12 years ago). I was looking at Samsung, but more than one sales person said they made great appliances, except for dishwashers. I went for a silent Kitchenaid and love it.

I have an LG washer that cleans well. I've had it for about 2 years I think. It replaced a Maytag that only lasted about 6 years. The Maytag was a first gen HE machine and I never liked it. We replaced our dryer at the same time we bought a new washer, and it replaced an older Maytag dryer. Bot the laundry LGs are doing fine. I don't know how long they will last, but so far so good.

I understand that dryers can live very long lives, because they are simple machines. In my experience this has been true. I've had to buy two washers for every single dryer I've owned since 1970. But things change.

We replaced most of our kitchen appliances with LG. We bought a Bosch dishwasher, and I already owned a Bosch induction cook top. I hope everything works for a long time. But you never know. I like the LG microwave and the LG oven very well. The fridge is OK. I do dislike the bottom freezer, as it does not allow good access.

Dryer sheets also leave a chemical film on your clothes. The only thing they are good for is removing odors from stinky shoes.

If you have static problems, make a few balls from aluminum foil and put them in the dryer when you dry your clothes.

Love my Samsung TV and Galaxy phone. No problems so far. Just want to add, I purchased all new Whirlpool kitchen appliances a year ago.
The clock on the range is now going out but the warranty won't cover it. WHY??? Because the warranty started the day I ordered it, instead of the day it was delivered, (2+ months later). It wasn't even BUILT when the 1-year warranty started. Range cost just over $1,000. A new clock, installed? 500 dollars!
Thanks for reading...just wanted to vent my dissatisfaction with Whirlpool.

Me too. Plus every time I turned on the oven, it set off the smoke alarms, despite opening all the windows and running the exhaust fan. It did this from Day One. After a few attempts to use it, I returned it to the store and ordered another Samsung as a replacement, thinking it was just that unit. The second one never arrived at my house as it was defective at the store so the store returned it to Samsung. I then ordered a GE and it has worked like a champ.

Microwaves are an anomaly. They are made under contract mostly in China. That is why the interiors of different brands may be the same. It is because they are the same. The brands ship the actual manufacturers doors, handles and control panels which are put onto common chassis.
