Avoid this dishwasher!! I've had a Samsung repair tech at my house over 5 times for this dishwasher. First was for the soap dispenser not opening during cleaning cycle. Repair tech had to replace soap tray. Next received error code. Computer board had to be replaced. Good thing its been under my extended warranty. Current issue is that it loses power every time you run a cycle. I have to reset the breaker in order to get it to turn on even though the breaker is not tripped.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Not sure who engineered the parts for this dishwasher but they did not do a very good job. The wheels literally fall off of the racks. So, you have to lift the bottom rack to put it in the dishwasher. As mentioned before the plastic tabs on the top adjustable rack broke off after 6 months. I used zip ties to fasten the top rack to the rolling mechanism. But, now they're starting to slip.<br /><br />I had an older Maytag that this replaced. Maytage cleaned better, much better. It also dried better. It was just noisy, but never failed in the 12 years I had it.<br /><br />The Samsung just doesn't seem to be designed and built well. Plus, it's not like it was a cheap dishwasher to purchase.

Comment:
I use the product for every day normal cleaning. <br />The only things I am pleased with are that the dishwasher is very quiet. Our kitchen is very close to our family room and TV. So the quietness was important. I like the silverware basket with the individual slots. <br />On the down side, we required 3 service calls within the 1st year. I wanted a top rack that could be raised and lowered to accommodate large items on the bottom. The rack does raise and lower until the plastic tabs that hold it up all break. I have replaced one rack already and now the 2nd one is breaking. I've owned the dishwasher for 3 years. I'm not bothering to replace the rack again, I'm just going to replace this disappointing dishwasher and steer clear of all Samsung products.
