Rated 5 out of 5Â by DakMan1954 Love this Dishwasher
The machine does what it is supposed to do, and quietly. Had a little trouble early on, turned out to be an installer problem.
The dishwasher is attractive. no knobs on the front. Easy to use. What can I say, it's a Samsung.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CDNY Good dish washer
Nice machine. Very Quiet, dishes come out clean though I pre-rinse my dishes. The dishes come out dry except for some plastic items but not bad. I would have given it 5 stars but loading the dish washer can be a bit of a challenge especially tupperware. The top rack tines are short and the tupperware tends to lay flat and take up more room. My old machine I was able to prop them up side ways. I am happy with the machine and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jeff SUPER QUIET!
Very Happy with the purchase. Extremely QUIET!. The three little lights on the front of the unit tell you when the unit is on and what cycle it had reached but I continually feel the need to put my ear next to the unit to even hear if it's running! It's that quiet! Cleans Very Well! This is my third dishwasher purchase in 16 years, first time with the Samsung and I wish I didn't wait this long. The handles even matches the Samsung Refrigerator that I already have. Customer service did a great job, especially since the first one arrived on the truck slightly damaged. The delivery/installers apologized and had a new one delivered and installed within two days! I would highly recommend this dishwasher and any other Samsung Products. I love Mine!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by HeatherTee2002 Not working as advertised
Caveat: I have used dishwashers for over fifty years. This is the first one to give me difficulty. I have had it nearly two months and am still trying to find out if there's anything I can do differently to make it work as advertised.
First, the small stuff. There is no pre-wash cycle. There is no way to tell the progress of the cycle but to wait for it to finish. No directions are given for adding a dish during a cycle, either, although I figured that out. These are not things we could have found out before actually using it.
The main problems, however, are with streaks on the glassware, dirty silverware, food stains and smears on the plates, and usually bits of food on the silverware or the glasses. After every cycle, there are heavy white streaks on the inside of the once shiny stainless steel door.
The first thing we did was to change the detergent. We first tried the gel capsules which I prefer, and found out the hard way that they don't fully dissolve. Then I read in the manual that only powder or liquid gel are recommended, so this is a problem Samsung is aware of. We then tried gel, which dissolved all right but didn't clean anything. Then we tried a high-end powder, and that worked a little better. But still the dishes weren't really clean.
We tried running the water hot before turning it on, tried adding rinse aid which is used regularly now, and tried loading it more lightly, loading half as many plates with gaps between each one. Even so, to get anything like a good outcome, I have to rinse everything and then run a Heavy Cycle. Nothing else works.
We have had everything checked and I am forced to conclude that there's something wrong with the design. The repairman just left, having found nothing wrong with the way it works. (Maybe that's because he didn't try to use it to wash dirty dishes!) His only recommendations were to use Lemon Shine as a hard water aid, and to rinse ALL food off every dish, in spite of the fact that this model claims to have a "Hard Food Disposal System". He also told us to run the hot water in the sink for a few minutes before starting the dishwasher. Since the washer is turned on after cleaning up the kitchen, this advice is superfluous, since the water certainly is very hot at that point.
I am about at the end of my rope on this appliance. The one good thing I can say is that it looks good and is very, very quiet.
