GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Samsung customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
GetHuman-tqsj: Harder to get to than the Wizard of Oz
GetHuman: Can you tell the rest of us a bit more from what happened on 11/27/17?
GetHuman-tqsj: Service absolutely impossible.**I rented a home in San Diego, CA, planning to move our family from Guam, in Micronesia, to San Diego. Two parents, three daughters, two dogs, and two cats. **Based on ratings and research, I bought a Samsung washer and dryer online July *, **** from AJ Madison. They were delivered, and the landlady paid $*** for them to be installed* I subsequently paid her. **August *, ****, we moved into the house. The dryer didn’t work.**We bought a new Samsung dryer, and it has never dried a load of clothes. Not one.**I have documented every phone call and every service visit. In four weeks, hours of service visits, and ** phone calls I have spent *** minutes on the phone. That is nearly eight full hours on the phone. Times, dates, names, and conversations all documented.**Not a single load of laundry dried by my new dryer.**Samsung has finally and reluctantly agreed to refund the money for the dryer, but will not pay the installation and removal costs for the dryer that has never worked.
