General Purpose
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.

Awkward Loading
Long Cycle
Petro-chemical Smell
Best Uses
Cover Up Counter Hole
The dish racks emit a strong petro-chemical odor. This smell is amplified by the heated water of the wash cycles, and during the DRY cycle, this horrible petro chemical odor is further amplified by the SANITIZE option and is vented into the kitchen. Cannot remain in the kitchen during this DRY cycle.<br /><br />None of the operating in the user manual are correct (the QUICK+ cycle published @ 59 minutes, takes up to 110 minutes +/-.......all cycles need to have 50 +/- minutes added to them)<br /><br />Customer Service is of no use. One service technician stated that the Sanitize option was only used to clean the dishwasher with no dishes in the unit. He also stated that the extra detergent required in the HEAVY cycle was supposed to be put into the rinse aid dispenser. And I was going to allow him to take the machine apart?<br /><br />The one, and only one, tier 2 tech that I wasa allowed to talk to, and that was even only by mistake, agreed that the user manual is extremely poorly written, and provides minimal help to the user!<br /><br />And every time you call into customer service, it is a new experience. No one talks to anybody else within Samsung, and you can never talk to the same person again, even thopugh the give you a name, location, and even an extension!<br /><br />This is not a good product! It literally stinks, and there is no customer support!
How long have you owned it:
