Samsung 520 series on sale - Any good?

Posted by foodonastump (My Page) on

Veteran's Day Sale - Sears has WF520ABP and DV520AEP on sale for $800 each. Aside from 3 reviews on Amazon (one good, two bad) I've not been able to find much in the way of reviews either here or on the web in general.

Any opinions on whether these are a reasonable pair?

TIA!

RE: Samsung 520 series on sale - Any good?

I have no personal experience with Samsung but I found the following links for you to read:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Samsung+-+4.3+Cu.+Ft.+13-Cycle+Steam+Washer+-+Stainless+Platinum/9873296.p?id=1218187077637&skuId=9873296#tabbed-customerreviews

http://www.samsung.com/us/appliances/washers-dryers/WF520ABP/XAA-reviews (of course this is the manufacturers website but there are some 2 star reviews - reviews are listed highest to lowest - you can change the viewing if you like)

Good luck!

FWIW, this model is a consumer reports recommended one. Although, CR does point out that the powerfoam doesn't do much so you may be able to save some $$ going with a lower model?

RE: one more ...

Here is the Sears link. It was acting weird but I managed to get it up.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sears - Samsung 520

Thanks livebetter. Certainly mixed reviews, but that seems to be par for the course with front-loaders. At $1850 pretax, I just bought the total package (W/D, pedestals, install, removal) locally for about $300 less than what Sears quoted me. Wish me luck; I'll report back.
