I have had this product for over 2 months and so far, I have no complaints. The product was acquired to replace a contractor installed failing dish washer. It was delivered and installed by the delivery guys. Super easy to use, beautiful to look at and enough room for the dishes and other kitchen utensils. Extremely quiet compared to the last one. You only know it is working when the water drains and you are next to it. The mobile application on the other hand is not ready for primetime. It only alerts you when the dish washer is done washing. I love the look and my wife has no complaint as well. I love this machine and would recommend it without any reservation.

Very Quiet but doesn't clean well
We purchased this for our newly built home 3 months ago based on the features it offered and its relatively good reviews. But so far its performance doesn't come close to what we'd expect from a machine at this price point. I've included pictures of some of its "basic" cleaning fails - fails that most of our previous dishwashers (models that were well below the price of this one) would not have had. I don't expect any dishwasher to get baked on cheese or burnt on foods off, but I do expect all machines to have no problem getting light greasy residue off ANY surface - afterall, hot water alone does a decent job on its own doing that. So add in a Finish Powerball Tab and Jet Dry, like I have been using for the past several years in all of my machines, and I easily expected this machine to have no problem with greasy residue and lightly soiled dishes. I've used the "heavy" cycle option, and have added the hi-temperature boost option in an attempt to get it to clean better but to no avail. I'm really surprised this dishwasher has such consistently good reviews for its washing capabilities and am just glad we haven't experienced any of the mechanical failures that seem to be its real shortcoming with most of the consumers that are unhappy with it. I'm beginning to wonder if our machine was somehow not installed correctly or has a defect? It runs just fine and is super quiet - it just doesn't clean that well?

As a family with young kids this dishwasher is a lifesaver. The third rack is the best feature we have ever seen on a dishwasher, and is completely filled on every load. This is the perfect place for bottle nipples, rings, sippy cup lids, medicine cups, syringes, knives, utensils, beaters, and almost everything we ever need to wash. The middle rack is adjustable up or down to give more room to either the lower or middle rack, but we almost always have it adjusted down to allow for tall (pint) cups and bottles to fit. The lowest rack is still able to fit our dinner plates and small frying pans.
The wifi feature is easily the second best feature after the third rack, although my wife prefers to use the controls on the dishwasher and has never used the app for control or notifications. However the app makes it simple to set the options exactly how you want them and save combinations as a favorite. It also gives you the exact time remaining and finish time, and also gives status messages about the dishwasher such as rinse agent running out or dishwasher basin needing to be cleaned.
Overall the dishwasher looks great, is easy to load and use, and runs even more quietly than our old Bosch model that was one of the quietest available 9 years ago.
The quietest dishwasher I’ve ever heard! Sure, you can hear the gently swish-swish of the water ...
The quietest dishwasher I’ve ever heard! Sure, you can hear the gently swish-swish of the water during each cycle and then you’ll hear the soft music to let you know that it’s almost done. I tried to make a video to show you just how quiet it is but I had difficulty with other noises from around the house getting in! The only time I could really get a good recording would be at night when every two and four legged beast was asleep, but even then it was too soft to record.
At first I wasn’t sure why anyone would get wi-fi on an appliance, but I’m glad that we did. We can monitor and control the dishwasher remotely from a cellphone. We installed the dishwasher ourselves with no problem except that later in the day it beeped at us and we didn’t know why. I had installed the app and it showed that we had a water leak. Yes, indeed we did! Thank goodness we were alerted to this because it could have been a watery mess the next day. We easily reconnected our hose and we were off to clean dishes! The app isn’t the easiest to install but it comes in handy to monitor the dishwasher’s performance, especially when I forget to turn the machine on at night or if I didn’t close the door properly, but I can check on the status anywhere.
About five minutes from the end of the cleaning the music goes off and the door soon opens up about four inches on its own to release the moisture and steam to make the dishes dry faster. Our biggest problem is getting used to the new racks and trying to figure out the best placement for our different size cups and bowls. When we have water bottles we can lower the adjustable upper rack or even remove the top flexible “Flextray” that is used to house knives, utensils or small items.
We have several washing options to choose from. The Zone Booster targets pots and pans or you can select the water to intensify washing on the left or right side of the washer. We use the Express 60 option most of the time to conserve water. It’s ideal for light loads and cleans the dishes faster. You can always choose the Normal, Heavy or Delicate options, too.
This Samsung Top Control Dishwasher has many features that will come in handy in our large household. So far it has proven to be a winner!

This energy and water wise friendly dishwasher is 24 inches wide and depending on how you take the measurement 34 1/4 to 34 3/4 inches in height (it has an adjustable prong on the bottom for balancing). It comes with two traditional loading racks and third smaller flat rack at the top of the machine for awkward items like big utensils, carving knives, etc. All the controls are on the door jam (pull out). This is great if you kids who like to press buttons when the door is closed!
Best of all, it is very quiet. It is so quiet I have caught myself a few times going through the kitchen to make sure the blue light was on and it was actually working! And, the way it uses the water, it will not impact taking a shower while doing this dishes. There is no loss in water pressure or heat.
The only caveat to set-up, which was incredibly easy -- hook up hose, water and electrical cord -- was the electrical cord. It is short. Like seriously short, short. It is only 2 feet or so and for our kitchen set up and where the dishwasher goes in accordance to our sink and electrical hook up, it was short by about 8 inches. They should move to a 4 foot cord!
It comes with some preset loads like china/crystal and pots & pans. i like these when I cook Italian and have sauced pots. It cleaned it with minimal effort on my end. it also has the rinse, wash and sanitize cycles too.
I primarily got this for the stainless steel look on the exterior. It cleans easy with a wipe.
As for the cleaning, it works like every other dishwasher, but does have a "zone booster." This is supposed to hit certain sections of the washer during the cleaning process more than the other areas. The interior also needs to be cleaned from time to time. I think this is more for water/calcium buildup that may take place over time. The guidebook tells you how to do this. Certain parts need to be removed and washed out.
The washer likes pods and does require a rinse/drying aide.
The two upper racks are adjustable for height. This comes in handy because the utensil rack (top most rack) is largely unneeded most of the time and kind of takes up space. Thankfully, you can adjust the middle rack to accommodate for it.
What makes this dishwasher different is that it does not use a swirling water projectile to clean the dishes. Instead it uses a bar that goes back and forth in the machine to create a wall of sprayed water. This is supposed to clean your dishes better. So far, I can't tell if it is any better or not. But it does get them clean!
It also comes with an door that automatically opens itself to help dry your dishes faster and cool them off quick too. This can be tricky. It lets you know the cycle is done.
It is also smartphone friendly and you can control it or check in on it with wi-fi. I have not used this though...and unlikely if I ever will. This in my opinion is an unneeded perk.
You can set it with all sorts of load times and water usage pre-sets. The buttons though are super sensitive. They act more like a smartphone where just a bare minimum of touch to the button will sound a beep (every button makes some sort of noise). But it is not too bad, since you always have to press "start" too, to begin a cycle.
Lastly, you will want to register your product. When you do it online, you will be taken to a page that shows you all the bells and whistles of the machine and how it operates. You might think you know everything your washer does, but until you go over this page, you probably don't.
It has a 1 year warranty.

I got this dishwasher to replace a fairly new, but horribly functioning dishwasher. The old dishwasher did an awful job getting anything clean so I was hoping that this dishwasher would do a much better job and I was not disappointed. This dishwasher is stainless steel inside and out which gives it a nice appearance. The controls are on the top of the door and includes a timer that shows how much time is left in the cycle. The only problem with the appearance is that it tends to show a lot of fingerprints.
This dishwasher has three racks on the inside. The bottom and middle racks are for normal sized items and the top rack is for small, lightweight items so they don’t fly around during the wash cycle. The left side of the bottom rack is for heavily soiled items if you select the “zone booster” button when you start the wash. You can select from the following cycles when you run a wash: Auto, normal, heavy, delicate, express 60, rinse only, and self-clean. The self-clean cycle is used if you want to clean the tub of the dishwasher. The following options are available when you run a cycle: speed booster, hi-temp wash, and sanitize. I think hi-temp wash and sanitize are self-explanatory but speed booster is a setting that allows the dishwasher to run a faster cycle.
I have found that this dishwasher does an exceptional job of cleaning. I have put pans with baked on grease and other food items without any soaking or scrubbing and it cleans nearly everything off the pans. Although the pans were not perfectly clean, they were much cleaner than they would have been in any of my previous dishwasher. I’ve included photos of the pans I’m referring to.
My only complaint of this dishwasher is regarding a feature I think is mostly useless. It has a feature called “smart control” which is supposed to allow you to control the dishwasher with your mobile device if you have the Samsung app. I downloaded the app and followed the instructions to the letter and I have never been able to get the feature to work. The app has recognized the dishwasher but it’s never worked when I’ve tried to control it with my phone. I’m not especially bothered by this feature not working because I don’t really have situations where I need to start the dishwasher remotely but if Samsung is going to offer it, it should work properly.
This is an excellent dishwasher and I definitely recommend it but Samsung should work on the “smart control” feature.
Absolutely Fantastic! The first time I ran this dishwasher I had to open the door a few times to ...
The first time I ran this dishwasher I had to open the door a few times to be certain it was actually running - it is that quite! My old machine could be heard all over the house, but this machine is nearly silent and I only know it is running when I hear the occasional water draining into the disposal.
There is a variety of cycle options with optional features such as Sanitize, Speed Booster and High-temp wash. I frequent the Sanitize and High-temp wash nearly every time, I mean why not? According to the manual the last rinse temperature reaches 163 degrees F vs the 131 to 154 degree range on other cycles. Count me in! Having the internal walls be stainless steel is a huge plus in keeping the internal machine clean (vs plastic).
The third rack located at the very top of the dishwasher is something I haven’t seen before and wasn’t sure how I would like it. Short story... I love it! All those little gadgets that use to fall through the racks and end up on the bottom of my old dishwasher now have a dedicated place that even has it’s own spray nozzles from above to get everything clean. Check!
The racks - everything is adjustable. The teeth slide up and down. Big pots are no longer being fandangled around, they sit perfectly in the racks. The options are endless but I don’t usually need to mess with them and they stay right where I leave them. The silverware holders are cleverly designed where you slide the handle into the holder so all the silverware isn’t laying on top of each other and not getting clean.
For the first three weeks of using the machine I couldn’t figure out why there wasn’t an option to enable/disable drying (like on my old dishwasher). After closer examination of the base of the machine I realized Samsung did away with the nuclear fuel rod used to heat/dry old school dishwashers. I have lost countless plastics to it over the years. Well, no more. While I am still convinced there is some sorcery involved here, I can confirm that all my dishes - every single load - have come out dry. I have it set to the factory default and the door pops opens about 5 inches in the last 5 minutes to vent the steam off the hot dishes. It’s really cool. Sometimes the stars align and I will be there the exact moment the door pops open and I sit in awe as it did it all on it’s own. So proud!
All in all this dishwasher is Fantastic! Buy it. You will not be disappointed. Sometimes, I load it with the filthiest dishes and they come back so clean and dry. There is only one detergent cup, but the manual gives you the green light to throw some extra detergent on the stainless steel door for those very dirty, heavy loads. So squirt away! I cannot attest to the use of detergent pods as I have never used them, nor do I plan to.
Top Reasons I Love this Dishwasher:
1. Quiet (nearly silent)
2. Sanitize option
3. Cutlery 3rd rack
4. All racks are adjustable
5. The “Water wall”
6. No heating rod
Thank you Samsung!!!
With all the talk of this new "WaterWall" wash system being THE greatest change in dishwasher technology, I was interested in knowing and seeing if it made a difference. My conclusion, it works incredibly well on even the dirtiest and muckiest dishes. The machine itself is BEAUTIFUL. Sleek lines, pretty lights, and quiet like I've never experienced before - the machine is literally unheard even in it's loudest cycle.
Without a doubt my favorite perk is that it opens the door automatically when it is finished washing to enhance the drying time and use less energy. It's a really great way to let you know "hey the cycle is finished, time to put away your dishes".
While I love so many things about the machine there are a couple of negative caveats. Most of them have to do with the top rack and the upper utility rack. The top rack itself is hard to pull out smoothly. For whatever reason, it doesn't want to slide out easily, and tends to get hung up. The top rack is also supposed to be adjustable. There are two levers for setting the rack up higher or lower on either the left or the right sides. Unfortunately no matter how many times we tried to adjust one side higher than the other, we could not get the spray arm attachment to align correctly with the back connection, when only one side was up. When this happened we could not shut the front door of the dishwasher. The rack finally had to either be up or down on BOTH sides no matter what we tried to do to get it to accept the angled adjustment. Unfortunately, this made it difficult for taller (30oz) YETI mugs to be washed at the same time when we also needed to wash our bigger Pottery Barn (12") dinner dishes. If the angled setting of the top rack would work, it looks like the items would fit, but my machine just could not adjust on an angle. If we wanted to wash both items at the same time, we had to put the YETI mugs on the bottom rack with the top rack at it's highest setting. If we left the top rack in it's low setting, our very 12" large plates, absolutely would not fit. If the rack was left unadjusted, the spinning water arm on the bottom of the rack would not spin because it hit the plate.
While I initially liked the upper 'utility rack', the more I use the machine the more I feel that it just takes up a lot of room, and I can't help but wonder if the Dishwasher would be better suited without the top utility rack altogether. I more often have much more to wash on the regular top rack, than I ever do with the utility rack. Having an option to simply take this rack out, might be a good idea. My honest opinion is perhaps the folks at Samsung should totally rethink this top utility rack. It really isn't doing that much good to be taking up that much space away from the much need room for the items in the regular top rack.
Other than the top rack issues, the only other things I can point out are the fingerprint issues on the stainless steel front. Perhaps the Black Stainless steel shows up less fingerprints? I don't know.
The power buttons are a bit complex. You must hit the power button to start any cycle - our old GE Profile machine had raised buttons, that we simply had to press "start" when we were ready to start the wash cycle. With this machine, the buttons are completely flat with very light colored writing - it's virtually impossible to start the machine without having an overhead light on. It would be VERY nice if the entire panel would light up when you press the Power button, so that you could easily SEE what button you want or need to press. Instead the power button lights up, and I need to get my glasses to see what/where the start button is. I can imagine that this will become old hat at some point and muscle memory will train me properly to just hit the buttons that I need to. Unfortunately until then, I will continue to need both a light and my glasses.
It's a beautiful machine. It washes and cleans dishes like no other machine I've used before - the WaterWall technology really is the way of the future for dishwashers!
