Companion Washer - WA48J7770AP Review




Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Generates steam to quickly refresh lightly soiled clothes without washing. The refresh cycle can reduce wrinkles, remove odors, and/or sanitize clothes. Nearly eliminates the need to iron.
Cycles Number of cycles and options is 19% higher than average and ranks in the top 35% of new dryers for BETTER program selection and flexibility. More cycles helps you tailor drying to your family's needs.
Drum Drum material is comprised of adequate but less desirable materials such as steel, plastic, or porcelain. Stainless steel is more durable and less resistant to damage, odors, discoloring, or static build-up.  
Capacity The DV48J7770EP capacity is 3% higher than average and ranks in the top 45% of new larger size dryers. Holds about 0.2 cu ft more laundry than the average new dryer. Laundry can be done less often.
Sensor Uses a moisture sensor to measure the water content of clothing as it tumbles, and automatically shuts-off the cycle when dry. Prevents clothing from being damaged by overheating and saves on energy costs.
Price Price per cubic foot is 10% lower than average and ranks in the top 35% of new clothes dryers for BETTER affordability. Based on the MSRP, each cubic foot costs about $15 less than the average new dryer.

Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
4 Settings - Less than average number of temperature settings. Most new dryers have five settings, and some even have six. The more settings available, the better the choice and care for your fabrics.  
Steam
Cycle
Steam Drying - If you're in a hurry and just need to get the wrinkles out of your clothes, or freshen-up lightly soiled garments, the steam generation cycle on this model will prove to be very handy.
Sanitize
Cycle
Sanitize Cycle - Sanitizes items with a high temperature cycle that kills many forms of household bacteria or allergens. Especially useful for freshing up stuffed animals, pillows, and other non-washable items.
MSRP $999 - Manufacturer's Price (MSRP) is 10% lower than average and ranks in the top 35% of new clothes dryers for BETTER overall price. You should also consider the Samsung DV48J7770EP cost per cubic foot.
Warranty Samsung 1-Year Parts, 1-Year Labor - Industry standard warranty for clothes dryers. A few manufacturers sometimes offer a longer warranty on parts if you register the dryer with them.


Convenience Ratings
Stackable Not Stackable - Cannot be stacked vertically with a companion washing machine to save space in your laundry room. Only an issue if you have a smaller laundry room without space for side-by-side models.  
Reverse
Door
Reversible Door - The Samsung DV48J7770EP dryer door is flexible and can be switched to open from right-to-left (with a washer sitting on the right side), or left-to-right (with a washer sitting on the left side).
Drum
Light
Drum Light - Includes an internal light that automatically switches on when the dryer door opens. Almost all new dryers come equipped with this nearly essential feature so you can see to unload your clothes.
Filter
Indicator
Filter Indicator - Provides a visual cue that the DV48J7770EP lint filter needs to be cleaned. Helps you keep the dryer clean and ensure that the proper airflow is maintained. Most of us need to be reminded.
Dryer
Rack
No Dryer Rack - Does not include a dryer rack that allows tumble-free drying for items such as tennis shoes, ball caps, sweaters, or stuffed animals. Dryer racks can usually be purchased separately.  
Venting Must Be Vented - Over 95% of new dryer models must be vented to the outside of your home with a duct running from your dryer. A few ventless models are available if an outside duct is not practical.  


Control Ratings
Display LED Display - Just look at the dryer while you're working to see how much time is left before the clothes are finished. Includes a remaining cycle time display that provides time and sometimes program status.
Controls Rotary-Electronic - Designed with a modern digital control system that makes cycle or option selection easy and convenient. About 85% of new dryers are now fitted with highly-functional electronic controls.
Delay
Start
No Delay Start - Can't be programmed to start at a later time. About 25% of new dryers have the convenience of drying the laundry at a time that best fits your schedule. More important for washers than dryers.  
Custom
Cycle
No Custom Cycle - Like most new dryers, you cannot program a custom cycle with temperature settings and options that you use the most. Convenient capability that's only available on about 30% of new dryers.  
Phone
Diagnosis
Phone Troubleshooting - Dryer problems or maintenance needs can be diagnosed via a phone connection with one of the manufacture's repair centers. Reduces the need to call-out a repairman to see what's wrong.
Smart
Grid
Not Smart-Grid Capable - Cannot be hooked into the present or future local utility smart-grid and programmed to operate when utility rates are lower. Most new dryers are still not smart-grid capable.
