The dishwasher keeps getting the OE error code. I'm reasonably handy and went through all the easy checks on the dishwasher and didn't find anything obvious. I called Samsung when this first happened months ago (~6 months after we got it) and they sent a repair technician OVER 3 WEEKS LATER. The wife was extremely unhappy about doing dishes by hand with how much we paid for this dishwasher. The technical replaced almost everything (PCB, sensors, etc.). Now about the same period later, we have the same issue. <br /><br />Last time I complained about the 3 weeks of waiting for the technical, they extended the warranty on the unit. Looks like we'll be going through this again.<br /><br />I would not buy another Samsung dishwasher at this point due to the issues with the unit and after sales support.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Bought this dish washer as it was an attractive design, the Samsung experience; we had with their electronic products, has been positive, it was in the price range we were looking for and finally it had a respectable rating by CR. (I hadn't read the user reviews).<br />The unit we received FIRST left tiny black pepper-like residue on the dishes and did not clean dishes well (not as good as the washer we had replaced), we attempted to rinse before washing and tried all the appropriate cycle options. We finally gave up and asked for a replacement; figuring it was simply a lemon and not the norm to be expected from a new Samsung dishwasher. We replaced unit number 1 about 3 weeks after receiving. This unit worked great!! no residue, it cleaned the dishes very well, and we were very happy. It ran for 2 full cycles and showed an ``OE`` error on the display and would not cycle properly after that. The Samsung service desk (located in India) offered a service call 2 weeks out. So, we asked for another replacement. Thank goodness we are dealing with ``THE BRICK`` a reputable appliance-furniture retailer. Unit number 3 performed in the same fashion as unit number 1. <br />We have now given up on Samsung dishwashers and are replacing it with a different manufacturer`s brand.<br />Yes, you could say that we are a little thick, but we were giving the manufacturer the benefit of the doubt.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
After our old appliances started to die, we decided to take the plunge and invest in an entire new suite of appliances. I was undecided between the LG and Samsung. I was leaning towards the LG, but a great sale on Samsung persuaded us to go that route.<br /><br />After about 10 months of normal use, some chinks in the Samsung appliances started to show. The control panels seem weak and flimsy (on the stove & microwave as well). The Samsung refrigerator turned out to be louder than our 25 year old Maytag we had replaced. So I was wary before the dishwasher started to act up. <br /><br />It started with a series of errors about incorrect float levels and water supply. After the tech came out, he informed us that the float mechanism was gummed up with soap and that we shouldn't use powder and only use liquid detergent in half the recommended quantity (hint #1: this dishwasher can't handle modern soap). He replaced the float. The errors continued and accelerated immediately. Now a new error is in the mix, saying there was a drain error. The tech came out 4 times and was not able to fix anything. (hint #2: service is terrible) I removed and reinstalled the dishwasher and cleaned it extensively. It worked well for about a week before throwing errors and stopping mid-cycle. After starting each load 2-3x, eventually it would run. Finally, the unit stopped working entirely - no power whatsoever.<br /><br />We are awaiting out 6th visit for an 11 month old dishwasher. I'm frankly more disappointed in Samsung's handling of the service and warranty....just a terrible experience.<br /><br />Take a hard pass on Samsung appliances and look at LG or Bosch.
