    Worked fine for 5 months. Heavy indicator light suddenly turned on in the middle of the day when the machine wasn’t even running. Error code indicates a leak so we got a plumber to check and he couldn’t find a leak. Since it’s under warranty, Samsung sent a technician who said that the leak is due to a misalignment in the gasket and he fixed it. HOWEVER, it broke down AGAIN in 1 WEEK with the same issue. This time round, the technician said it’s because of the Cascade pods that we used. They are creating too much suds. Well, that’s new to us and we still can’t verify if that’s the source of the problem because during the second service, the drainage hose was damaged, causing a puddle at the under the sink cabinet. Still waiting for technician to fix it!

    Disappointed in Samsung

    Doesn’t work

    I bought this product from a big retailer Android from the get-go there were issues. The initial one that was sent to me was damaged and I had to wait a while to get the new one in. My new one was shipped from Samsung. This Samsung never worked well. I used it maybe 5 to 10 times and it already is broken. When it was working, it never really dry the dishes and left plenty of streaks. Hence the reason I barely used it.

    Rusting already????

    I bought this dishwasher and had it installed in July 2018. I am noticing that there are rust etchings along the front of it. I thought it was food at first, however a closer look during cleaning determined that it was rust… on stainless? or is this NOT stainless on the front. Very disappointed because the dishwasher is actually great.

    Samsung dishwasher

    The first unit they brought did not work, they had to order another “took 2 more weeks”.
    We hated it from day one!
    Does not clean, Does not dry.
    Had to replace after less than a year.

    Stone dead after only 1 year and 2 months. Samsung will not cover (warranty is only 12 months). Last Samsung appliance I ever buy.

    Good but not long

    After 4 years it died and not fixable, something to do with the electronic. Not the first Samsung device I had issues with but definitely the last..

    Nosiest dishwasher ever

    I am astrounded by how noisy this dishwasher is. And on this page it daily’s quietest in its class… like a stream?! That is simply false. So disappointed with this product and I am a huge fan of Samsung normally but this has let me down.

    Terrible, terrible, terrible

    Shipped to us broken and missing a drawer wheel. Missing wheel caused the drawer to shift which caused damage to the gasket. TWICE repairmen could not fix and the second “expert” made the situation worse. Used a machine screw to fix the problem…
    Decided to change out the hose because of the constant terrible odor. Samsung will tell you to use Tang after each wash to solve smell issues. When we pulled the unit out, we see the entire bottom is cracked. Of course now it is past warranty.
    We paid for unit to be delivered and installed. HOW WOULD I KNOW THAT THE BASE OF THE UNIT WAS CRACKED?
    Samsung has denied any claim.

    Complete trash – Unit died in 18 months

    This was purchased with our brand new home. A full set of samsung products (Washer, Drier, Fridge, Stove, Microwave range, Dishwasher). We got it all 18 months ago and no complaints about the other items but the dishwasher completely died in that time.

    Sure enough warranty is only for 12 months so no help from Samsung when I called in. Authorized repair person said the main gasket was done and the major replacement would be 350 for the parts plus labour, more than the cost of the unit itself.

    I dont know about anyone else but 18 months for an appliance is appalling . Especially when I had my whole house outfitted with the companies products. My only call in to Samsung resulted in them checking my serial number to tell me theres no warranty (thanks but i can already read that myself from the owners manual) and then giving me a number for a service provider.

    When the unit was working it didnt even do a great job of cleaning the dishes. Every load we did had to use the heavy duty setting just to get them clean, and I pre-rinse ALL dishes in my house before loading them.

    I had an awful experience being surprised with a nice replacement bill for another unit in the first year and a half. I will never buy another Samsung appliance again nor recommend them to anyone I know. Steer clear of these garbage units.
