"Good machine but has a loud buzz when the pump is on."3.0 starson by virgo22sep
Pros: Larger tub, water efficient, energy efficient, lots of good cycles, not too noisy for the first year and a half.
Cons: Off waranty at the one year point and now, six months later, developed a loud buzz when emptying the water.
Summary: Was a really great washer for the first year and a half. Nice features and no problems. The model I own has the same features as this listing but I believe has the bigger tub as I paid a couple of hundred dollars more than the price they are showing for this one. Mine is a WF218. It now has a very loud, obnoxious buzz whenever the pump is running. The call in line person ran a checklist of answers to my questions and was obviously not understanding anything about motors/relays/solenoids. So they want me to have a technician take a look at it. I'm guessing $200-$300 to have the problem fixed. In the last 30 years (yes I'm a senior), I've owned a Maytag, a GE, a Kenmore, and a Whirlpool. All were the better models with extra rinse and multiple cycles. Never had a problem with any of them and used in a four person household. Now the Samsung in a one person household needs fixing after a year and a half. It'll be fixed and then go on Craig's List. Very disappointed in Samsung and from now on will limit my purchase of their brand to electronics.
