The Samsung DV422EWHD[WR] is part of the clothes dryer
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer
models like the DV422EWHD[WR] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.
Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.
For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.
About This Brand
Over the past three years Samsung has introduced a full line of laundry products, with prices ranging from $750 to $1,350. The company has been broadening its dryer line.
Stainless-steel drum A stainless-steel drum is likely to resist damage better than plastic and painted metal drums.
Porcelain top A porcelain top resists scratching better than a painted one but generally adds to a dryer's cost. Painted tops, far more common, are often quite durable with normal use.
Drying rack The rack attaches inside the drum to keep items such as sneakers or sweaters from tumbling.
Custom programs This feature allows you to save your favorite settings.
Steam option Generally, a water hook-up is required with this feature. In this cycle, a small amount of water is sprayed into the drum while tumbling with heat. It helps to reduce wrinkles and odors, but is intended only for a few garments at a time.

The Samsung Bad review was really alarming. We had already ordered ours when I read it. It filled me with dread! <br /><br />In actuality, our dryer of the same model DEFINITELY DOES NOT wad up the clothes into a burrito. Both the sensor and timer modes work very well; clothes come out loose and wrinkle free. The poor guy who wrote the Samsung Bad review must have got a terrible lemon. I watched his horrifying video and must admit that its high production values (captions, making the dryer run with the door open so viewers can see) made me wonder if it was posted by a competitor or someone with a grudge against Samsung. <br /><br />The dryer is very simple. It lacks the bells and whistles of higher priced Samsungs(like an interior light and some of their many cycles). The cycles it does have--both sensor and timed--work very well and seem adequate to our laundry needs.

Turns loads into a tightly-packed clump
Leaves Clothes Damp
There's something incredibly bad about this dryer's design because almost every laundry load turns into a tightly-packed clump that's dry on the outside and damp on the inside. <br /><br />To see what I mean, check my YouTube video: http://youtu.be/JYmbcdKABV8
