This review is from: SAMSUNG DV456EWHDWR White 7.3 cu. ft. Electric King-size Capacity Top Load Dryer
Pros: First major appliance purchased off the internet but I had a lot of faith in Newegg. As usual the haven't let me down! I like the LED lighting, but am not fond of having to hit the power button for it to light up. At first I thought I was going to have to hit the two buttons for a few seconds each time I wanted it to light up, but soon realized it was to turn it on and off as a function, not each time. Once you turn it on, shutting the door turns it off. Opening the door turns it on. Providing you have pushed the power button. It will take some time to get in the habit of pressing the power button before opening the door and loading it up. Since I personally use the same settings all the time, I like the "My Cycle" feature. And the lady of the house uses all the other settings for towels and such.
I like the sleek look and the goofy chimes/tunes. It sure beats that EEEEHHHHEHEHHHHEHHEHHHHHH buzzer noise from the old days!
While I'm not to fond of the multiple snapping required to open and close the lint cover at the bottom part of the lint catcher I am pleased that the large size does wonderful for the dryer! Every other dryer I used would have a half inch thick blanket of lint after drying towels. That seems to make it difficult to dry toward the end of the load, however this over sized lint screen doesn't fill all the way and thus allows the air to flow through the whole drying cycle.
You tend to keep the tops of your units clear so you can access the controls. This helps keep them looking great!
Cons: The top looks off a bit but it still functions like it should.
Didn't come with a 3/4" tension relief. I was aware of needing a power cord as well as new hoses for the washer, but during installation of the power cord, I was reading the instructions to just triple check that the white was neutral and goes in the middle as basic electronics wiring can make you second guess which is what and with this much power, you want to be sure! During my reading, I was reminded of the tension relief needing to be installed to prevent strain on the power cord. Lucky for me, I remember seeing a few of them in the shed and getting one hooked in wasn't any problem. (After I had to unscrew the wires and run them through it, and then unscrew them again to run through the locking nut that was suppose to go behind it)
We opted for the more expensive ridged duct with the swivel 90 degree angles for close proximity and I am very pleased with how strong and sturdy the whole setup is! Moving the unit to clean the duct once a year will be very simple and remain strong and sturdy for years down the road! Much better choice than the cheap flimsy ones that crush easy!
Other Thoughts: I got the matching washer (Top Load) and I seen in the description that the dryer was "Top Load" as well. It's not in case you were wondering. It's a normal dryer where you open the door to load up. No magic top lid where you can drop your laundry in.
