About - Samsung DV50F9A8EVP

The Samsung DV50F9A8EVP is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the DV50F9A8EVP are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Drying performance:
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.

Capacity:
Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.

Convenience:
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.

Comment:
This dryer is fantastic !! Very happy with it. Samsung seems to know what they are doing. Machine is quick to respond when it senses that the clothes are dry. Shuts off with in a couple of minutes. Had a Maytag unit that would run for 10-15 minutes with dry clothes before it would shut off. Samsung doesn't cheap out like Whirlpool does. When you purchase the Whirlpool dryer, you need to buy the steam hoses/connection. The drying rack is a seperate purchase also. Plan on spending almost another $100.00 for those items. They are included with this dryer. No issues with sheets balling up like models from the past.<br />Machine is very quiet. Like the style.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
