Samsung DV5471AEP 7.4 Cu. Ft. Electric Stainless Steel Dryer Review

Dryer $1,299.00

If you need a big dryer, the 7.4 cubic foot Samsung DV5471AEP fits the bill.

Introduction

Samsung's DV5471AEP has nearly everything you'd want in a high-end dryer: a large drum that can fit substantial loads, plenty of cycles that performed equally well in our testing, plus a fit and finish that would make a designer refrigerator jealous. Even though its $1299 MSRP is pretty high, we found it on sale for as low as $950 -- not bad for a high-capacity dryer with all the options.

Unfortunately for the DV5471AEP, however, it tended to choke in all of our performance tests, getting clothes extremely close to dry before suddenly giving up. Despite its flaws, it's still not a bad choice if you need a big dryer and don't mind throwing a few damp garments back in for a couple minutes of supplemental tumbling.
