If you are not familiar with all the repair providers in your area, it could be hit or miss as to who comes to your home to fix your washer. At the price you paid for the original product, you want people who are certified in Samsung washers to perform the repairs on yours.

Samsung washing machines are considered to be in the top three best brands to own. This means that, on average, they break down less than the competition. There are still going to be occasions when they break down. Samsung prefers that you go straight to the source when you are requesting a washing machine repair and to let them schedule it for you.
