Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I am in the market for a reliable washing machine. I looked at the Samsung and it appears that the company does not back up its product and it is expensive to repair. Is this true? Are there any repair guys out there that can recommend a front loader washing machine that is reliable and not too costly to repair and is energy efficient. What about whirlpool? What about the noise? I used consumer reports once on buying a refrigerator and it was the worst recommendation, I don't trust them anymore. Can you help me.

It is my opinion after seeing 1000's of problems posted that Whirpool is the best choice, but stay away from front loaders, they have way to many problems no matter who makes them.

Is there a way to replace the **** components in my Samsung 50' 6400 series LED smart TV so it will be a reliable monitor? seems like the only thing that will last on this lemon is the screen!!!!!

Hi Tom

Sorry to hear about your Lemon. I learned about Samdung products awhile back.
I refuse to buy any of their products because of their bad attitude.

The Non Innovators who reverse engineer to get ahead in the market & program devices to work super fast on benchmark tests.

A bit like FolksWagon did with falsifying dynamometer results for EPA readings.
I know all businesses can make mistakes and make poor choices. But, we really shouldn't support companies that blatantly falsify to get better market share.

All electronic devices (inc HD TV's) have problems with Electrolytic Capacitors fizzing out. It's a huge problem.
But I'm sure "some" companies buy underrated parts to insure they don't last too many years.
Go with respected companies like Sony, Panasonic, Hitachi etc.
and check the following before buying.
Warranty period
-(Nice if you can get 5yr like my Mitsubishi Electric Fridge)
User interface - The on screen controls. Ease of Use.
Input Ports - USB, HDMI etc
The video codec's that are supported. eg .avi, .MP4 etc
the more the better. (Look how many codec types VLC support)
Plug a HD drive into the USB. What movies can it support?

Will hiring an SEO marketing agency ensure that my website will appear on popular search engines such as Yahoo! and Google?

Unfortunately, there is no assurance that an search engine marketing agency can put your website on top of Yahoo! and Google's lists. However, agencies that aren't able to do this for their customer usually return the money paid to them. If you are willing to take the risk, I suggest you really look for a credible and reliable agency.

What Maytag models were manufactured by Samsung?

In many cases it is only justified that some designs are bought up to be marketed in popular brands. It has happened ever since consumer electronics went to higher levels of marketing with popularity of the designs.
Also the companies favour this policy ONLY mainly due to COST and Acceptance of the design which works out better for the country.

Just brought a samsung bd3600 blu ray and tried 2 blue ray films in and both have frozen the only way to move them on is to turn off and restart sometimes it freezes at same place but other times it...

Unfortunately complaints about blue ray players are ridiculously high.

I always recommend that people look at sites such as consumer reports, Cnet or even read the reviews on to see what people are saying about that model.

Samsung makes really good products but the reality is that noone makes a "great" blue ray player. Every one has issues such as those you describe but the most common complaint is that they take forever to read discs. (personally, I felt the HD dvd format was better and more stable but marketing wise Toshiba dropped the ball)

The ONLY company that makes a reliable blue ray and technically its not meant to be a blue ray player is Sony with their playstation 3.

Read some reviews on it most people would agree that its a nice stable platform that has some shortcomings but none of the stability issues that other brands have shared.

At this point I would recommend exchanging your unit if possible. Another possible solution is to check to see if Samsung has an updated firmware for your unit as this often fixes issues that should have been resolved before the unit hit stores.

Unfortunately lately I have noticed that in the rush to get products to store shelves companies force new models to market figuring that they can resolve the issues as they go (remember only a low percentage of consumers will complain)

By the way the first company to really do this was Microsoft back when they released the original Xbox they knew that there were going to be problems but the financial need to get it on shelves before the crucial Christmas sales period pretty much forced them to ship a poorly engineered product.

Hope that helps
