Crack in Dryer Drum!

JUMP TO SOLUTION

We’ve had our new DV42H5200EF-A3 and matching washer almost one year to the date when we first heard a loud thunking coming from the dryer.  At first we thought it was just some unbalanced load of clothing, but when I looked inside the dryer, the drum has a huge crack in it!  Really disappointed as I love these appliances and the dryer has worked flawlessly until now, but now we’re terrified to use the thing in the event it destroys our clothes or is a safety hazard.  Any suggestions on how to get this fixed?

I can understand how frustrating that is to deal with. Honestly, repairs would be recommended. I can make no guarantees but I would be happy to look into this to see if there is anything I can offer. Mind sending me a private message with the serial number here: http://bit.ly/2igAXKH

We have this issue with our dryer . Bought in September 2017 so out of warranty. These should last 10 years not less then 18 months. Very disappointed! Would like to know best way to get repaired by Samsung.

Our heating element went out under warranty and then we had a cracked drum after 2 1/2 years. Samsung refused to do anything so we trashed it and got a whirlpool. 

Our fridge had issues the first year. Someone came out and defrosted it. Then 3 months later it happened again and it was out of warranty so Samsung wouldn't do any thing. The filter stopped working after that. The temperature is off all the time. When I would call they would tell me to buy a new filter, I must have spent $300 on Samsung filters.

 

5 years after I got it my fridge doesn't make ice anymore, the filter is out, and food goes bad all the time because the temperature is off.

 

samsung doesn't care about their customers and wants me to spend money to repair it when there are 16,000 people with the same fridge issues

Good luck
