[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really took my time and put this dishwasher through its paces. I have taken the time to use several cycles especially sanitize to test the cleaning ability of this dishwasher. Well I was impressed with how quiet this machine was I definitely had a few problems with error codes. I placed and placed a call too Samsung and they were great, explained how to reset since the error showing water level issue and we were not able to locate any issues. We have not anymore error codes. cleaning and drying my dishes so much better than my previous dishwasher. The third rack is great for larger utensils. The stormwater cycle is great for stuck on food on dishes and I was impressed. Oh my glasses and my dishes dry without spots and I love the option of the door popping open when done as part of the cycle. I am impressed with this dishwasher and it does a good job of doing what it was built for, but quietly. I have used the normal, auto, sanitize and heavy cycles. My cycles typical run about 2.5 hours. My other dishwasher did not have sanitize, was louder and did not have an auto release like this one. I run my dishwasher several times a week depending on load, I love the express load with sanitize for all my dog bowls, which the adjustable rack really comes in handy.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First impressions - Sleek looking addition to our kitchen, with space galore inside.
Likes - * Dishwasher holds more than our previous model!
* Love the 3rd rack for utensils and silverware
* Very quiet, but not so quiet that you do not know it's running when up close
* Easy to use controls, never have to guess what cycle you want
* Just love the AutoRelease Door at the end of the cycle, (door automatically
opens to circulate air and improve drying performance). With our prior
dishwasher we had to watch for the end and be there to open the door, now the
dishwasher does it automatically!
Dislikes - * The only negative so far is actually a positive! The larger capacity, called a tall
tub I believe, has the lowest rack closer to the floor than our old dishwasher,
requiring bending further down to load and unload. It's really a positive as it
allows more to be loaded in each wash, but something I am sure in no time
we'll get used to!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This dishwasher is so unbelievably quiet that you will forget that you even had it running! While this is the first dishwasher we have had in our own home, I���ve heard plenty of others run. While the noise has never bothered me that much, it���s really great to not have to hear it all either. The third rack is great for silverware since I have never been a fan of the utensil basket. Rinsing my dishes before hand is a thing of the past since dried food residue doesn���t seem to be a problem at all. The sleek and modern look helps pull the kitchen together. Thank you Samsung for another great appliance to help around the kitchen!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a good quality dishwasher that holds a good number of dishes. I particularly loved the features of the moving upper rack, the additional top utensils racks, and the stormwash function. It really helped make me fill the washer full and clean my dishes exceptionally well. The ability to drop the tongs on the bottom rack was super helpful too for when I needed to put the large pots or pans in the washer, and the holder for the wine glasses section was a big bonus. The washer ran well and pretty quietly, and I loved that it made a noise when it was done washing to alert me to look out for the drying cycle. That also allowed me to shut it off when I wanted to simply air dry.
I like the possibility of the settings for harder cleans, just one rack, and the ability for the washer to pick based on how soiled stuff is. At this point I've only used the normal settings as I haven't needed anything extra. However, I do plan to use the storm setting soon cause I made a mess. Can't wait!
Compared to my previous dishwasher (an old almost clunker that had functionally no adjustments), this is a huge step up. This new one runs quieter, adjusts more, and frankly just looks sleeker (the fingerprint resistance is a huge plus. It really does keep the marks off at this point). It's in all ways an improvement. And I can get wine glasses in this one!
It was a little frustrating that I wasn't able to have both wine glasses and cookie sheets in at the same time (I had to lower the upper rack to make the wine glasses fit), and it's also frustrating that there wasn't an option to simply air dry. I was also disappointed that the washer didn't get a higher energy efficiency rating. All ways that the washer could be better.
Overall, I enjoy the washer and would recommend it, but in order for it to get 5 stars, those frustrations being addressed would be amazing!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have now had my StormWash��� 48 dBA Dishwasher in Black Stainless Steel for a few weeks now and love it. It���s quiet technology is perfect when our family room is right next to the kitchen. I have tried all the setting features and am very impressed how well it cleans the dishes. The Storm Wash setting is for a specific area within the tub, which is great if you have some dishes that need it and others that don���t. The third drawer for utensils cleans well, and is a great place for those large BBQ pieces that usually are awkwardly placed with glasses and bowls. The best part is the ability to adjust the drawers depending on the size of dishes being washed. I highly recommend the StormWash��� 48 dBA Dishwasher.
