Comment:
own the dishwasher for 1 year plus 2 months spend 990 on it - LE error occured last Month - followed by IE error code. Turn off product wait a day turn back on ..tried different washing cycles - half way through to the rinse or dry - 1E. Pump works, Motor work, no drainage issue. Logic indicates brain failure - need to replace the touch panel as well as the control board. But the cost is more than half the price of the unit. Not worth it. Spoke to Samsung - foreign desk, explained to me it was the control board and heating coil unit, I asked about cost - they reffered me to a certified tech. Tech told me to replace unit and dont by Samsung. End of Story bad product bad electronics - unreliable and Samsung is aware of it.

Comment:
We attempt to use the DW every day for normal use of a household of 2 people. Almost immediately the plastic fitting that adjusts the upper rack position broke so we can only use the lower position. Now the pump to empty the tank does not work. It is less than 2 years old. The inconvenience of having a repair person come out usually means 2 trips as they diagnose the problem one visit and schedule a second visit which means one of us has to take time off work to get this done. I am so tired of poor quality appliances. I would not recommend Samsung to anyone.

Comment:
I bought this piece of garbage in Dec. 2013. Within the first year it started flashing a IE code and wouldn't do anything. A factory authorized service tech came out under the manufacturers 1 year warranty and said a sensor needed to be replaced. We waited several weeks for the part. Once the part came in he replaced it and we were back up and running...for about 6 months. At this point we were on our extended warranty. The tech came out and said it was a bad board. After about 3-4 weeks waiting on the part, he replaced it but then the button selections didn't work. A tech came out again to look at it and said it had 2 bad boards. After another 3 weeks the parts came in and they came and replaced them. The very first time we tried to wash a load of dishes, for the first time in about 2-3 months, about 5 min into the cycle the IE code comes back on and the machine shuts down again. Service tech comes back out and sais it's got a bad board again. I called the place where I bought it from and complained. I told them I had a lemmon but after reading all the bad reviews I guess it's just poor design. They agreed to give me credit to buy a another dishwasher. This was the worst excuse for a dishwasher I've ever seen. During the short time that this thing actually worked, it never really washed the dishes very well. We would always see particles of food stuck to the dishes even when we tried pre rinsing the dishes. They always came out soaking wet too. Im thinking about playing it safe and buying a Whirlpool next.
