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.

Comment:
We have owned the dishwasher for about a year. Recently we started getting an error code on control panel almost every time we wash dishes. We had it serviced, but the technician advised that the dishwasher wasn't heating the water enough, so we should run the hot water in the sink before starting the washer cycle - which still doesn't work. On top of that, Samsung's website is very difficult to navigate and repeatedly crashes when trying to get help. I won't buy another.

Comment:
This dishwasher is not durable and has unreliable performance. The plastic upper rack pieces broke twice just from rolling out the rack! Now we have an OE error and are waiting for the repairman to show up. Nasty crud builds up under the door gasket and needs to be cleaned by hand periodically. This dishwasher does NOT have a heated dry cycle and plastic pieces need to be hand dried. That said, I am very careful about running it through a clean cycle about once a month with an appropriate product. I would never buy another Samsung kitchen appliance. Their other electronics are great, they need to stay out of the kitchen.
