Q:Do you have spots all over your plastic ware after wash.
by|Jan 31, 2018

Answer This Question

A:  No

by|Mar 19, 2019

    A:  YES! We thought it was our water softner going bad, but after changing out this dishwasher for another one the spots went away. It had plenty of rinse aid, and plenty of softner salt, there's something odd with this dishwasher.

          Answer This Question

          A:  Yes, there is a way. They don't recommend you do it, but page 15 of the manual says that you can disable it in two ways: "Using Setting Mode, press the Delay Start + Sanitize buttons for 3 seconds while the dishwasher is on. Then Press the Sanitize button until A1 or A0 is displayed. A1 disables Auto Release Dry. A0 enables Auto Release Dry. Then press the Delay Start button to implement your choice. Another way is to press the Lower +Hi-Temp Wash button for 3 seconds to enable or disable Auto Release Dry. A0 disables it, A1 enables it.

            Q:Do your dishes get dry?

            Answer This Question

            A:  Yes. Better then other dishwashers... The door opening really helps with the kids plastic plates. The only positive I can say for this device... For reference all of my dishes are dry now because its 90 days old and won't run. On hold for the 3rd technician service.

              A:  My experience is that they will dry, despite there being no drying mode. When the lid pops open, there is still some time left in the cycle. Give it about 5 minutes and the dishes will air dry. Now, if you have bowls or cups with lips or indentations in them, there will still be water there, but that's the same as with any dishwasher unless you put in in "BLAZING HOT" mode so that the water is boiled away. But that's not a good plan, is it?

                      A:  It does a fairly good job but the Bosch 800 series I installed at my last house a year ago did better with our dishes. Unlike this one it also lasted more then 90 days.

                      by|May 5, 2023

                        A:  When you have enough rinse aid in it, it does.

                          A:  This is an energy efficiency move, but if you don't want the dishwasher to do this, there is a way (on page 15 of the manual) to disable this action. The dishes probably won't dry as well, but that's the choice you make.

                            A:  Nkb. First the door only cracks slightly and this is done at the end of the cycle. The reason its done is that there is lots of humidity in the dishwasher after a cycle and releasing that allows the dishes to dry faster making it more sanitary. If the dishes in your house get dirty from the air then they will experience that same air once they are in your cupboards. That being said... Due to reliability I cannot recommend this Dishwasher and wish I had purchased a Bosch.

                              A:  According to Samsung, the door opens at the end of the cycle to speed evaporation and help the dishes dry faster. I don't see why this would cause an unsanitary condition - you probably do not store your dishes in an airtight cabinet.

                                A:  While I'm not certain of "turning it off", we just never set it up. I can for the life of me figure out exactly why I'd need my dishwasher set up for Wifi, but it's there! We never paid attention to it, so it's not gotten in any way or been an issue. If you don't set it up, there really is nothing to 'turn off' since you didn't 'activate' it to begin with.

                                A:  Right now I am not using the wifi connectivity. The dishwasher is not set up to connect to my network at home - so yes.

                                  A:  Yes, it will require opening a cover and pulling the (usually blue) plug from the wifi connector (usually identified on the board). There are several good you tube videos out there. BE SURE TO DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE REMOVING ANY PANELS. Only try this if you have experience working on appliances and electrical equipment. Also REPLACE ALL SCREWS AND SOME ARE REQUIRED FOR EQUIPMENT GROUNDING

                                    A:  There is a rubber flap, but it is designed to be screwed down behind the kick plate. It sounds like your prior dishwasher was not installed correctly. It does appear to be for noise isolation.
