Appliance protection plan or scam?

I bought a brand new Samsung washer and dryer 4 years ago. I paid way too much for the 5 year protection plan on both. Two months ago my dryer got stuck in the wrinkle prevent cycle so I called to have it serviced. Unfortunately Geek Squad does not have a service provider in my area so it goes to a third party. The third-party Appliance repairman has been to my house three times and replaced three major components on my dryer and now the dryer won't even come on, so it is in worse shape than when we started. I have spent almost $200 and way too much time at the laundromat over the last two months. Every time I call the service center the rep (different every time) says they will get to the bottom of my case but no luck.The repair man keeps saying he has tried everything and has no idea how to fix it but after talking to the service center they order yet another part, which so far hasn't worked. When does this insane cycle end???????? What is my next step? Do I have any options?
