  The Samsung DV5451AEW/XAA is an extra-large-capacity gas dryer that should provide both sufficient capacity and cycle choices to handle the laundry needs of most large households. It comes with steam features to refresh clothes or remove wrinkles and moisture sensors to turn off the machine when the load is dry. It also offers a choice of four drying levels (more dry, normal dry, less dry or damp dry) to customize the drying cycles.

What People Are Saying:

The Samsung DV5451AEW/XAA gas dryer is on the 2012 Recommended list at Consumer Reports, which rated it excellent for drying performance and capacity, and very good for convenience and noise. User reviews are mixed, with only about half or fewer recommending this machine. Those who like it note its large capacity, quiet operation and easy-to-use controls, and praise the steam options. Negative user reviews complain that the sensors stop the machine before the load is dry or report ongoing problems with error codes that shut the machine down overnight or until a service technician fixes it.
