have a Samsung electric dryer. It’s 10 years old. Back when it was still under warranty. I had a heater element go and needed to be replaced. Guy came to do the work and I clearly remember him saying to me, “ this is going to break again. It will be out of warranty. Don’t call me, look up on YouTube how to fix it and do it yourself. This is not hard.” Sure enough. Something broke. I think it was the element went again. So I did as told. yT in hand and took it apart and replaced the element. Over the years...drum belt..drums support wheel...two drum seals separately. (Samsung didn’t sell a seal replacement. Bought a bigger one and cut and glued the new one on. They wanted to to replace the whole drum for like 250 bills F that. )...and tonight another drum support wheel. New dryers run 800-1000 bucks now. Old Phil would have replaced it a long time ago. But flying Phil with kids is nickel and diming it away. While each fix so far has been 25-50 bucks..I probably have almost half purchase price in parts fixing it... when do you look at it and cut the losses and just replace the bad boy. I don’t need the videos anymore to walk me through taking it apart. I could take it apart in my sleep at this point. In fact I fix friends/family when it comes up.
