On recommendation bought eco bubble Model WF90F5E3U4W EU. In 2016 Suddenly just few weeks ago the m/c started vibrating violently and coming out from the place. All usual causes were checked and rectified but still has its own mind. yes happened after 5 yr warranty expired. Same with my dryer kaput after 2 yr warranty expired.
this fault occurred to at least 2 people I know who were lucky to get repaired by Samsung even though out of warranty.
I recommended few in my family and friends and have warned them what to expect. The Labour cost to repair is £132 plus parts and only 3 months warranty. To buy another model could get for £300 including 5 yr extended warranty.
