        Buy a Bosch

        This is the worst dishwasher I've ever owned and I really don't understand all the good reviews. I purchased a Samsung stainless steel suite of appliances to replace perfectly functioning white appliances. The dishwasher we replaced was a Bosch. We've owned Bosch dishwashers in the past but didn't want to spend the extra money this time so went with the Samsung (and wanted to get the suite discount Samsung at the time was offering). I regret my purchase every time I use the Samsung (which is multiple times per week). 1. It's louder than the Bosch, even though they are supposed to be the same dBAs. 2. I'm actually surprised if all the dishes come out clean. Just about every single load I pull out at least one dish that's still dirty and has to be washed again. 3. It has a really ugly black flap at the bottom that makes no sense to us. It's ugly (looks almost commercial) and doesn't really seem to be useful. 4. I have a hard time fitting my dishes inside. The top rows don't seem big enough for most of our cups/glasses and the bottom seems like everything is angled the wrong way (the back row is fine, but the other rows don't allow you to put plates in the same direction). So if you have more than one row of plates/bowls, you have to just put them in however they'll fit because they won't fit in a nice row like the back does. 5. I run every load on Heavy + Storm Wash. Most of the loads are normal loads that shouldn't require anything special but because the dishwasher is junk that's what I have to do...and still don't come out with a fully-washed load...and no, I don't overfill it. I also use Finish Powerball detergent which I've never had an issue with before. 6. I like the idea of the auto open feature that helps dry the dishes, but because it has that feature, you can't just rest the door on the latch if you don't want to close it all the way. You have to close it every single time or it stays open. In summary, I will never buy another Samsung dishwasher and regret my purchase. In seeing all these reviews (which I did read before making the purchase) most of you are enjoying the dishwasher which is great. But it frustrates me so much that I wanted to make sure that others understand its limitations because if you're on the fence, I highly recommend you get a Bosch.

        Awful dishwasher, and even worse customer service

        Posted

        Where to start? We got this installed in October 2016 and even the installation process for cumbersome. BUT, after using it for a while and trying out different cycles, we realized that all of our glasses come out dirtier than they go in. We don't know what causes this, it's mainly a phenomenon on our glasses. It's almost like dried tobacco stuck everywhere (with nothing even similar going into the dishwasher) and they need to soak in hot soapy water for a good while for the dirt to come off. Called Best Buy, they don't care and referred us to Samsung. Called Samsung, and after making me do tests and almost techy stuff, and after over an hour on the phone with them, they said it's a user error and we should try Cascade tabs - ARE YOU GUYS SERIOUS? They wouldn't send out a technician, although I told them all our other appliances are Samsung; although I kept verifying that we are prewashing (much more than we ever have in the past), that we put stuff into the washer the correct way; although I got really upset. Nothing. Even spoke to a manager and he basically said the same thing. At this time, not even worth it anymore. Samsung is dead to us. We are washing our glasses in the sink now and probably invest in another dishwasher later this year. Great. Would not buy this or any Samsung product again. Awful on all levels.

        I'm very happy with my purchase and the Storm Wash feature is a great addition. The standard wash time is a little long (just shy of 3 hours without the Storm Wash), but there is the express that you can add storm wash to that and it's just about 1 hr 10 minutes. It's a lot quieter than the decibels listed indicate...I really only hear the actual dishes as they're sprayed and of course the draining in my sink. Some dishes don't get cleaned, but I don't think this is the machine's error. It usually happen when you over stack your dishes, so they're not exposed to the spray, especially in express mode, so that's more user error. The door popping open at the end is kind of a nice feature as well, just make sure if your dishwasher is set under a cabinet or you have wood countertops to stick the steam shield on the bottom. You can measure the size and cut it out and stick it under your cabinet so you don't see it, but can preserve your wood. The song at the end is a little long and excessive, but there is a way to disable it; I haven't because it doesn't bother me, just my wife. :) The adjustable top rack is a very nice feature too particularly if you have taller wine glasses on top or taller pots/wider pans on the bottom. Like all dishwashers I have purchased in the past, you gotta love the stainless steel interior and the removable rack is nice as well. You can fit a day's worth of dishes inside, the caveat is that we're a family of two, so keep that in mind. I highly recommend this product for anyone. For the price, you get a lot of the 'bells and whistles' of some of the more expensive machines.

        Excellent modern dishwasher

        Have been using this new dishwasher for the past 2 months. Pros: - Very quiet. Seriously, it's so quiet that we sometimes doubt it's working even standing right next to it - does not use electricity to dry dishes at the end of the cycle. Instead it has an ingenious feature to use very hot water to quickly rinse dishes at the very end and then opens the door slightly and turns on low volume fan to force all heated air out of the dishwasher. As the result, all dishes and glasses come out exceptionally dry and clean and we save on electricity cost - has many cycles for different type of dishes and level of dirtiness. But best of all, has quick wash cycle that finishes cleaning in 60 minutes - has adjustable rack that allows to fit really big pans in the lower rack Cons: - does not come with free installation and BestBuy charges a lot to install it. If you are a bit handy consider free delivery by BestBuy and do install yourself - I don't like the top touch controls on the door. When door is closed, it's impossible to see time remaining or chosen cycle. And I don't trust touch controls. In all our appliances we had problem with them after some time. - the bottom panel is made out of rubber and repeatedly comes undone. It's a manufacturer defect that Samsung just can't be bothered to fix. Defect is mostly cosmetic, as you see this hanging rubber panel and it ruins the sleek design a bit. Overall the Pros definitely outweigh the cons and we are pretty happy with the purchase.

        Samsung is really Just OK

        We have not used the storm wash feature of this unit. We just use the 60 minute "quick" cycle as we don't like to put a lot of gunk into the machine. (And are not into programming this beast!) Sometimes the dog even does the prewash! I don't know how easy it is to get the chunks of gunk out the bottom like I had to do every other year with the old cheap Kenmore. That cheapie still works, but the timer would hang up. 10 years was long enough. The new Samsung is quieter as it is not the bottom of the line unit. There is a bunch of insulation on it compared to the old unit. It is also surrounded in stainless steel. I got it to match the Samsung 3 door refrigerator that we got last year (even though the handles on the $300 base unit would have matched better.) The unit pops open at the end of the cycle and because it gets the water so hot it does not have a heating element in it. It just opens and an air fan on the top blows the vapor out into the room. I don't think it gets the dishes as dry as the old unit, but the wife says it's fine, so it is! Others have complained of this. I don't like the door popping open about 8 inches ( which it has to do to vent the vapor), but again, the wife likes that feature! We haven't used the full wash cycles because they run over 2 hours! That's nuts as the unit does make some noise and we assume that it would use more water and electricity as well. But when we have a big party, I know it will get the job done. It seems to have more space inside- the upper rack is easily adjustable and holds tall glasses, etc. This was an open box and the sales manager gave us a great price on it- like the base model. Still waiting for the kick plate, though.

        Great Looking, But Leaves Residue on Glass

        We bought around 3 months ago, and just had it installed around 2 weeks ago. We use it almost daily so we tested it to the prime. Make sure you use heavy wash or storm wash when you wash dishes, because normal wash will not do a great job. We notice also the type of pods you buy for a cleaner also makes a difference on the results of clean on your dishes. Play around with it and you will find the one you like. When my wife and I were purchasing this we didn't know it didn't have heated coil dry like we were used too. So samsung doesn't use that technology anymore, but use hot air to blow it dry. So when the rinse is done the unit opens by itself which is neat, and does an air dry to dry the dishes. They get pretty dry, but there is some residue on clear glass cups we have which I do not like when its on the bottom rack.

        Very disappointed

        Posted

        I purchased what I believed were high quality Samsung appliances - 4 of them - and I am very disappointed. I paid to have three appliances installed including this dishwasher. Two days later the dishwasher smelled like a sewer. I called and had to wait a week for service. While waiting, the bottom rubber flap fell down which is supposed to help quiet the noise. Tech came and had to re-work the hoses going from dishwasher to the drain/garbage disposal because the installer did it wrong. Fixed flap. Looked at double oven radiant range while there. Showed him pictures. A week later the flap fell down and the dishwasher still smells. Never had this before .. living here 16 years. With flap hanging, dishwasher is LOUD. Tech coming again Friday. Service tech on phone told my husband to “cut the flap off.” Poorly designed but it is sleek looking. Rather have a quality product the seller backs. I will keep calling if the flap falls down. Very disappointed with product and Best Buy salesman whi never responded to my emails or calls.

        Not as good as I would have hoped

        I wish I would have read more reviews before purchasing. The top rack doesn't seem to have as much space as my old appliance, possible because the electronics are on the top of the door instead of the front. There is a flap that holds your wine glasses but if you use it, you lose the entire row behind the glasses. This seems incredibly stupid. I took the removable stem holders from old dishwasher and put them in this one. The bottom rack catches and does not slide back in easily. I read the instructions for cleaning the filter out but haven't figured out how do to it successfully yet. It just does not seem the get all the dishes clean. I eat oatmeal for breakfast and the bowl that has the oatmeal never gets clean on the normal setting. I am going to try a different detergent to see if that helps. The first dishwasher I had could get casserole dishes clean with no problem, the next two just were not as good. We were getting a stove, fridge and dishwasher. I wanted the black stainless but this dishwasher only came in black not black stainless. Very disappointed that I had to go with regular stainless instead of the black stainless because one appliance wouldn't match.
