When we built our first home, we bought a new Samsung washer and dryer. That was in 2007 and we have not had one problem with them since. We have five people in our family with four of them being guys...need I say more. Several loads a day is what we wash. It's had its wear and tear for sure.
We donated it to a good family and decided to buy a new set.....yes we went with Samsung again!!! I Highly recommend it.
