Comment:
I use the product for every day normal cleaning. <br />The only things I am pleased with are that the dishwasher is very quiet. Our kitchen is very close to our family room and TV. So the quietness was important. I like the silverware basket with the individual slots. <br />On the down side, we required 3 service calls within the 1st year. I wanted a top rack that could be raised and lowered to accommodate large items on the bottom. The rack does raise and lower until the plastic tabs that hold it up all break. I have replaced one rack already and now the 2nd one is breaking. I've owned the dishwasher for 3 years. I'm not bothering to replace the rack again, I'm just going to replace this disappointing dishwasher and steer clear of all Samsung products.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I bought this dishwasher in January, it has been broken since May. It is now almost October. The store I bought it from, Samsung, and their repair company just keep passing the buck and no one will help me. I just want my money back but that is looking like it isn't going to happen. So I am taking a big hit for this terrible purchase.
