The new infrared broilers on the LG ovens are the same way. Had to replace one once and it was a royal PITA to say the least.What should have been a 15 minute job to swap a broil element turned into an hour job. So Samsung is not alone in this one. Maybe it's a Korean thing?

Nah. The GE dishwashers are made in the USA now...

Yeah but I keep finding GE washers that are LG made on the inside, so I can't even say for 100% that GE isn't being Korean made now either

Ran into the same situation with a Viking wall oven.  Replace the infared broiler, no problem, in and out.  Groan.
