Well I get to join this club now too, all our appliances are almost 7 years old now and have been good up until now. Our Kenmore (rebranded Samsung) dryer had the belt tensioner pile up, replaced that 2 weeks ago. Now the motor is going out, making a loud humming at all times, even if the dryer is empty.

Thankfully Amazon carries the parts, tensioner was $20, and ordered the same NewmoTech Motor (as long as the description and picture are correct) it came with from Amazon for $150. Samsung wanted $320 for the same part.

Sure wonder how many people just throw these things out every 5 years though.

In my head
3 year old top end Samsung tv crapped out. Needs a new panel. Over $1,000. Samsung told me to pound sand every call I made, and I made alot. Found some forums where many people having the same issue...3 years. Completely unaccpetable!

Picked up a new whirlpool top load washer. Plugged it in and all that happened was the pump kept cycling. The shops delivery guys had to run back to get another one.
