Have you met our Washer and Dryer yet?

Over a month ago we purchased a new dishwasher just to come home and find we needed a new dryer as well.  I simply bought the largest washer and dryer that Samsung had available.  We have had these just over a month and they seem to be performing up to expectations.  I don't really do the laundry anymore, my mom has taken that task over in order to rationalize her hanging out here 99.9% of the time.

My only regret is that I didn't get one that was smarter

I hate the term Smart when used to describe anything. The Smart Phone has led to a certain expectation and even prejudice against anything that is described as smart.  A better term might just be enhanced. 

So there are two types of smart washer.  The one that supposedly scans your wash load and determines, based on weight and presumably material how long to wash it.  And the other one that lets you talk to it via a phone app.

In any event, we had an issue with the washer and I had to troubleshoot it the old fashioned way but googling error codes like a cave man instead of being able to connect a smart phone app to the machine and getting a detailed analysis of the problem.

Thank you for reading and I hope you will comment below.  Please also do any and all of the following:
