My Samsung 5.0CF Front Loading Washer just turned 4years old and it makes a loud "Whirring Noise" during the Spin Cycle. I had one repair technician come to check it out and he said that it would be $1000 to repair it because it might be a problem with the ball bearings and or the metal turning arm. The washer only cost me $849 brand new so $1000 repair cost is beyond ridiculous. He also told me that if I ever buy another washer, to be sure NOT TO BUY Samsung because they make a poor quality product. I Agree!!! The other problem is that I couldnt buy a different brand of washer because it would not be compatible with the Samsung Stacking Kit that I currently have my matching Samsund Dryer attached. I am furious that I can't even reach anyone at Samsung to get help from. STAY AWAY FROM POORLY CHEAPLY MADE SAMSUNG APPLIANCES.
