I've been using LG front load laundry machines for the past 11 years (3 different models, 1 year currently and 5 years for the previous 2 models) and always keeping the washer door either wide open overnight after a wash or slightly ajar during the day when there are traffic around. No issues whatsoever with any of the machines. No problems with mold but it used to smell during washing cycles even with regular rubber seal and filter cleaning. I found that by adding a little bit of Borax powder to the clothes it has eliminated most of the smell and kept the rubber seal quite clean. No light in any of the washers so you can keep the door open without wasting electricity.

A box of 20-mule Borax 2kg at CT costs about $6 and lasts for about half a year. I use the minimum amount of Costco Ecos HE liquid detergent. The smell usually comes from undissolved soap and the borax helps to dissolve the soap more efficiently. The Borax has been the best help in controlling the smell and keeping the rubber seal clean.

I wouldn't recommend Samsung appliances either.

I own the white model from Costco and while they work ok there were several issues.

First of all the dryer was making a strange noise and I called Samsung and they had a tech come out and fix it.

Then the next thing was the washing machine was recalled for exploding (not joking) and some people actually got hurt.

I had another technician come in and repair the appliance and support it. I asked will this prevent it from exploding. He said no but if it explodes it will explode sideways instead of upward into the ceiling.

I've also had Samsung TVs die on me but that's another story for another day.

Have a Samsung gas stove and a fridge. Not even 5 years old. All the knobs in the stove is either broken or partially broken, not durable at all. The seal on the oven where the door closes came out. I had to buy one and install it myself.

The fridge: couple of shelves cracked and broke, the ice maker frosts big time now that ice doesn't get made cos the system thinks ice is full.

I agree but it took many replies from many posters to paint the grim picture
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburders eat people

Unless you buy online, you never ever pay what the ticket says. you can always get it cheaper. Be it best buy, sears, trail, home depot, etc. Just like buying a car.

My Samsung washer also died in 2 yrs. Fortunately I bought extended warranty, but it's still a pain.

Not that I have lots of experiences, but my old Whirlpool lasted 8+ years...

Probably in the minority here but I've had a Samsung front loader washer and dryersfor 7 years now and the only problem with either was the heating element ($300 total including labor) went on the dryer about a year ago, very happy otherwise.

Previous house we had a Maytag front loader and no issues in 8 years. We now have a Whirlpool top loader that's about 10 years old and no issues. Wife wants to go front loader for convenience, better cleaning, and being more gentle. I'm OK with that since it'll use less water. Considering LG from costco.

Had a Samsung top loader that got recalled, had to buy another Samsung to get their rebate so got a front loader.

After less then a week it started making a dreadful mechanical grind noise so they came out and just replaced it... the new one would shake like crazy even though it was on level ground and the machine itself was level and calibrated when installed. They sent a tech out and he verified the machine was installed correctly so they took the machine away and I bought an LG top loader, it cost a little more but has never missed a beat.

Never buying a Samsung appliance again.

In my experience, front-load usually cleans clothes better. Also my last two top-loads caused damages to my clothing, whereas front is not a problem. Could've just been two isolated incidents, but enough to make me stay away from top.

Strange you say that. I have washer/dryer/stove Samsung brand for years with 0 problems. I also had Kenmore (samsung made) washer/dryer previous with 0 issues.

I think what it comes down to is specific models with each brand.
