    About one year now, still going strong

    we love this dishwasher. it always gets all the dishes clean, even when we stuff it over full. we have the 3rd top mini rack and its great for spatulas and big utensils and always gets the caked on crusty stuff off. the storm wash feature seemed like a bit of a sales pitch to me but we do use it quite a bit for big pots or pans with heavy starch build up on them and they always come out clean. all of the features work as advertised and we installed it ourselves. best buy delivered it to the kitchen and all the needed hoses etc and install was really easy. (cough, you tube, cough). if you have a slight bit of handy skill or a quick learner you can do it yourself. the top button panels can be hidden under the counter-top and you can just press the buttons you want with the door open, then shut and it will work, or, like we did, you can install it a bit out from under the counter-top so the buttons and screen are visible with the door closed. Ok, so the "bad" stuff now: i can't think of a lot of complaints after a year of use, but if I'm getting picky, the blue light that shows its running its VERY bright. at night, it lights up our whole kitchen. if its mounted under the counter-top, it probably wouldn't be as bad, but for us, its bright. not enough to complain but some people may not like that. you could put some electrical tape over it though or something and its fine. (MAYBE it can be turned off in the settings too..? i don't know. but speaking of settings, the door opening at the end of the cycle for air dry is actually kind of nice. i didn't think it would work great but it seems to help the drying process. samsung knows not everyone wants this though so there is an easy button press combo that will turn that off. there is also an...interesting song that plays when the wash is finished. we don't mind it and everyone gets a kick out of our dishwasher humming a tune so we leave it on, but it is also available to shut off. over all, we are really happy with this unit. it holds a lot of dishes, its customization is nice for both the racks and the system settings. its pretty darn quite and we don't even notice its on most of the time. stainless steel inside helps dry dishes and the door prop open at the end helps too so no need for annoying heat coils. you won't be disappointed with this dishwasher.

    Great dishwasher. Everything that was a little questionable for me can be turned on or off. For example, it pops the door open in the last few minutes of drying. This was Samsungs answer to people complaining there's no drying coil (which is a good thing to get rid of) but if you don't like the door open, there's a code to turn that off. Same with the sounds. The dishes dry just fine in both settings. We use extra hot water and jet dry and that helps too most likely. The buttons work good and respond nice to touch. Only thing we've been worried about is when water from the counter or sink splashes on the button display. We wipe it off when we see it but I'm not sure how good the seal is there. You'd think they thought of that but that's why we bought a new one. Our old dishwasher (not samsung) got water in the control panel. The under counter mount works good. But beware, we had to use the side mount option because if you use the top (into the counter) the brackets will block the control panel when it's shut. You also won't be able to see the controls when shut. I realize this is the design and may not matter to some. But we decided to use the side mount option so we could pull the unit out more and see the panel while it's running. This is particularly useful to see the time remaining screen. Otherwise, overall we really like it. It's quite, install was easy (we did not pay best buy extra for install.) if you know even a little what you're doing, you're fine. Water in, water out, power. That's it. Oh also, the power wash option actually is nice. We've put baked on dishes and cheese coated pans and it comes out clean. Really nice. There's also a jet dry indicator on the control panel. That's a nice touch to know when you need more jet dry added. If you like the Samsung appliance brand, you'll like this dishwasher. It's a good mid to top level washer but at a lower price then say Bosch equivalent

    I love this dishwasher! Opted for the one with a food disposal and the storm cycle. It cleans off almost anything and rinsing is no longer required. The 3rd top rack is perfect for my spatulas, knives and other small dishes and cleans them well too. The door automatically opens at the end during the steam dry cycle and dries the dishes better than the conventional drying system. A chime will sound when the cycle is done. The disposal means that I no longer have food residue on the tops of my glasses. The hardest part is training myself that I don't have to clean my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Miracle! Scrape dishes, load and go. If it's a burnt pan or something that takes a good scrub regardless of soaking then you will need to take care of that first but otherwise works exactly as promised with a lot of great features. Geek Squad was awesome at installing it and knowledgeable. They cared and did the best job and continued to answer questions I had about the dishwasher. Finally, a great dishwasher and a great experience to go with it and now I have clean dishes!

    Samsung has made it to the level of elite in the dishwasher world . The Storm Wash model , I must say is in the same class as Bosch 500 series dishwasher's. Super quite , third rack , many washing options . One thing that's different from Bosch is the door automatically opens to help air dry the dishes when wash is finished ..( those with kids do not worry it has a child lock if you do not want to use this feature ) . I also love the Storm Wash feature for those pots that need extra attention . Over all great product .Samsung will be rated high in Consumer Reports with this new dishwasher this coming year . Moving forward , I believe it has fixed the problems with its previous dishwasher's starting with this new model .

    I highly recommend this dishwasher. We had purchased the next step down (DW80F600UT) back in November and were massively disappointed. Due to a kitchen remodel we replaced that with this and have been amazed. Ultra quiet, cleans extremely well, and has the upper rack to boot. It also has the improved drain/filter system than the next step down, something that I've always hated. My only con is that fact that some of the lower rack dish tines can fall down easily and we had to use a tie wrap to fasten them in place which is trivial in my mind. Spend the extra money, you're going to live with a dishwasher for 10-15-20 years, you will not regret this purchase.

    Great Washer For The Price

    I purchased the floor model, so I received a pretty good discount. Surprisingly, this is the first dishwasher I've had to purchase after being a homeowner of three houses. Spending a large chunk of change on an appliance is never easy, so you expect good value in return. So far, this dishwasher performs as expected and is extremely quite when operating. My only complaint is that my previous (super cheap, came with the house, contractor grade) dishwasher did a better job of cleaning the silverware. My solution so far has been to remove the top (third) rack to allow for more unrestricted spray from the water jets. It seems to be better, but isn't as consistent as I would like. All-in-all, I think the performance of the product vs. the price I paid is more the satisfactory. I would recommend this dishwasher for anyone not looking to break the bank, but is looking for pretty solid performance.

    3rd drawer is the bomb

    4th dishwasher I’ve had, and I hope it lasts forever. It’s been a year since we bought it and we could not be more happy. We bought it specifically for the silverware tray and are pleased it works out the way we hoped. We group our implements, and they are really easy to grab an put in the drawer. Stacking the untensiles vertically prevents spoons from nesting and coming out dirty. About the only thing I’ve noticed is if you have a full tray of silverware it’s best to run a heavy load cycle. It is also almost silent, except for water changes. Best Buy was also great to work with, and we always look there for a few months before we look elsewhere. The people seem to know the product and don’t hustle you.

    Upgraded all Frigidaire appliances to Samsung's Black Stainless & at 1st I was thinking... what hefty prices, however I was able to complete the 4 piece set 1st the fridge, then the microwave, stove & last dishwasher) w/pretty good deals/sales & I feel like a winner. They are all beautiful! This dishwasher is super quiet. Although I usually run it at nite I did a quick rinse one day & was amazed at how quiet it was. Learned that most dishwashers these days no longer have the heated dry feature, this one does a great job w/the setting on which allows the door to open for faster drying. Works just fine. Haven't had to dry w/a towel nor are there spots. 3rd row comes in handy for utensils, cooking spoons & some lids. We luv it. Shame that a plug doesn't come w/. My guy is a super handy man so it was no biggie for him to connect the previous cord to the outlet we put in for the last dishwasher.

    Went to Best Buy location to see a different dishwasher and cheaper than this one. Was recommended by a Pacific Kitchen rep inside the Best Buy location and told to pay the extra money for the style and the features with this Samsung dishwasher compared to lower end Samsung models. By far, this dishwasher is SO quiet that I have to put my ear next the dishwasher to hear it. It looks fabulous in the kitchen along with the other stainless steel Samsung appliances also recently purchased at Best Buy. The dishwasher does pop open after the load cycle has finished to air-dry the dishes. Not an issue. This dishwasher does not have a heating element and relies on this air-dry. Could not be happier with this purchase. Use the dishwasher fully loaded maybe three times a week and have not noticed an uptick in energy bill either.

    The dishwasher was the final purchase of all our kitchen appliances. We replaced everything this Fall. The others were LG, but the dishwasher we went Samsung and so glad we did. I felt that the racks were better quality. The LOVE factors for me is the third rack for utensils, is VERY quiet, ( so quiet that at times I have to stand close to it to hear it running.), and the 1 hour Express wash. It does pop open at the end of the cycle for drying purposes. At first I didn't think I would like that ...but I actually do! The dishes dry very well that way. I didn't use our other dishwasher for the past few years and was hesitant to purchase such a nice one as a replacement if I wasn't going to use like the old one. BUT I am so happy we did because I love using this dishwasher. It wasn't the user it was the appliance. IT makes all the difference in the world.

    This is our third dishwasher in a house that is 4 years old. The builder installed an entry level GE unit that broke 3 months after install, 3 months later a GE tech had to come out and repair the dishwasher a second time. We got the GE to limp along for a total 14 months and then decided to buy a near top of the line Kitchen Aid which only lasted 12-13 months. Did a LOT of research and found that this was a good value and highly rated d/w. Have had the Samsung for about 3 months and am really happy with it, we use the 60 min cycle quite often for smaller loads and not once have we had anything but clean, dry dishes. Also noteworthy, since we needed a replacement quickly, Best Buy once again saved the day by allowing me to purchase it and pick it up at their local distribution center same day. LOVE Best Buy!!!!

    This dishwasher does everything! A small flat upper level tray holds silverware and large cooking utensils. The middle rack for glasses and bowls can be raised or lowered, depending on oversized items...which is very convenient. The lower rack has a special "storm wash" corner for the baked on foods in pans or baking dishes. I have trusted this new dishwasher to get everything CLEAN without my having to pre-wash dishes, and BELIEVE ME, everything comes out sparkling clean! Leave food residue on the plates and silverware (scrape away bits and chunks), use powder detergent, and everything comes out CLEAN with no residue. There is a screen filter in the front bottom of the dishwasher that is easy to remove to rinse off the "scum" that collects...BEST dishwasher I have ever used.

    Wanted something quiet as the kitchen is pretty much in my living room area. I bought into the whole Samsung black stainless eco-system starting with my microwave so I needed something to match that. The only time you hear this thing running is when it drains the water. It came with its own drain hose attached which was a little bit shorter than the previous dishwasher setup. Just had to really stretch out the hose to make it fit. Installation was pretty simple. Watch videos on YouTube about dishwasher installations its a really simple process. Took more time getting it leveled than actually hooking it up (that process involves placing and removing it from under the counter a few times to get it right). The important thing is to make sure you get it leveled correctly.

    I was skeptical about getting a Samsung dishwasher after reading many negative reviews about several other Samsung dishwasher models. But I was getting a refrigerator, microwave and range, too, and wanted them all to be the same brand. When I purchased this, it was a brand new model so I took a chance and so far, after having it for several months, I've had no issues and the dishwasher works great. It's super quiet, which is a huge plus for me. My old one was so loud I had to turn the TV volume up or go into another room.With this one, I don't even know it's on and often forget until it chimes when the cycle is over. I like that the door opens a few inches toward the end of the cycle. My dishes cool off and the dishwasher can be emptied much sooner than any previous dishwasher I've owned. I also love the third rack.

    We purchased this dishwasher because our old one that came with our house stopped draining and started leaking all over the kitchen. The Samsung dishwasher is a dream come true. It’s incredibly quiet, you practically have to put your ear to it to hear it, whereas our old one was so loud we couldn’t have a conversation anywhere in the house (I’m not kidding). I love that I can stop it if I find a stray mug or something that I forgot to put in there. I’m also pretty impressed that it’s got the flat rack up top for small flat items. Overall, a great dishwasher!

    I did some research before finally landing on the Samsung. To be honest it was the extra 10%pricing that sold me on getting all Samsung appliances. That being said the washer has three sections and tons of space to load. It’s fully adjustable so you can place large casserole dishes, or a dozen plates. Nice thing is you have several wash options. There is an hour quick wash, just the bottom rack, auto wash, and it pops open the door to assist in drying quicker. The storm wash can be used to blast off those sticky casserole dishes. Lots of perks to choose from when washing for sure!

    Replaced my old 1999 LOUD dishwasher with the Samsung Stormwash- already have a SS fridge. Went with 44dec after much research, probably would have been happy with 46-50dec but didnt want to chance it since my old one was SO loud. love the 3rd rack, didnt think i would use it, but i do, seems like it has more room, the top rack tilts glassware so it cleans/rises better, love the back corner for stormwash-door pops open on drying cycle, glad i read that or i would have thought something was amiss. the "flap" i read about online was NO big deal, my husband installed the washer himself and i screwed the flap behind the kickplate-not sure why people fussed about it-its been about 1wk since installation-tried different cycles, so far , love it

    I read a lot of the reviews and was told how quiet it was. I was really surprised can't even tell it's running.. the black stainless steel is absolutely gorgeous the best looking out there.. I was worried about the height but it fit perfectly.. also I have granite countertops was worried about how to mount but you can make a adjustment with the brackets and mount to the sides. The door automatically opens the last five minutes the fan turns on to let all the steam out. Very quiet.. and lots of room. With the 3rd rack.. I can almost get twice the dishes in this than my last one.

    Seems to me that the time to ask for a review is after the product is a couple of years old. My NEW Dish Washer is only TEN DAYS OLD SO how much can I say about it?? It is MUCH EASIER TO LOAD than my previous machine... It is making my wife VERY VERY HAPPY!! The installers (GEEK SQUAD) Were among the most professional I have ever encountered. We have a Samsung Washing Machine that is several years old and performs perfectly, so I am anticipating equal performance from my new Dish Washer. Like a new car or A new baby, they are beautiful and perfect when only ten days old. Come back in TWO YEARS and I will give you my honest opinion! So far I stand by Samsung Appliances !! (Phones? NOT SO MUCH ) Tim

    I was so tired of my so-called top of the line "Jennair" and its leaking and not cleaning I did away with it and bought the Samsung. I am so pleased that I did this. What a great DW. You do not have to pre-wash a thing, it so darn quiet, I thought at first it was not working! I tried something. I took the bottom pan out of my smoker -you can imagine what it looked like --it brought a new meaning to "baked on" grease--and decided what the heck, I will put the machine on "storm wash and long cycle." Unbelievable result. The darn grease catching pan was as clean as if you just bought it! Truly, a really great DW at a good price. Highly recommend!!
