Comment:
This dishwasher was a disappointment from the very beginning however, I tried to work with it. The quality of washing ranged from fair to terrible. Dishes were wet, not clean and food particles deposited around the door gasket which was disgusting and likely contributed to the terrible smell. Sometimes the dirty water failed to drain entirely. Service technician replaced the main board which stopped the lights from flashing and allowed the washer to run a full cycle. Despite this, the quality of cleaning never met my expectations. It is totally malfunctioning again as it fills with water and then drains over and over again. Service technician came again today and wants to replace 3 parts including the main board (see above....we've done that once already). I am done with this unit and will never consider this brand again.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I've owned this dishwasher for two years. One month after the 1 year warranty expired, it stopped working. The two lights would blink after it tried to to fill will water. The Samsung guy was not only ineffective but installed a broken part in trying to fix the machine which cause some water leakage. I had a local appliance repair company come out. It cost $400 and 6 visits for them to finally repair the machine which they mentioned was a poor brand. 10 months following this, the lights were flashing again and the dishwasher is once again broken. I would not wish this dishwasher on anyone.

Comment:
I am always astonished at how different consumers can have such dramatically different experiences with the same product. However, in this case, the preponderance of scathing comments is downright puzzling. We have had this unit for about four months, and while it may explode in the next few days, triggering months of unsatisfactory negotiation with Samsung service, somehow I doubt it. What I can say with certainty is that 1) this is the quietest washer we have ever owned, and one of the quietest I've ever heard (or, more precisely, not heard; 2) it does not give off petrochemical smells, or any other suspect odors; 3) it does an excellent job of cleaning dishes, even when not pre-rinsed; 4) for the money, I think it would be hard to beat this machine for overall performance and quality. Sorry others have been unhappy with their washers, but we couldn't be more pleased.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
