So I picked this up for $338 on clearance at Loweís today as a special order return. Still in packaging and never opened. Normal price at Loweís is $1,049 and the cheapest I could find it online was $899. Iím wondering if I should swap out my Kitchenaid KDFE104DSS2 which has never been a great performer and often leaves residue and wet dishes. Just looking for any insight on these Samsung DWís as Iíve never owned one before. I assume I can only do better than the Kitchenaid I currently have.

Why do I have the feeling you're going to HATE this dishwasher?

Not sure?

Is there something terrible about the dishwasher that I should know about? I understand that Iím probably not going to get the performance that I would get out of one of my old power clean machines as the new machines are designed for energy efficiency which unfortunately generally decreases cleaning results a bit or at least increases wash times by quite a bit (which I can live with..) But if there is a reason that I will hate it I would love to know. Thanks for your help.

The testing organization we love to hate tested this model.

Washing: Excellent
Drying: Good (which in CR-speak means so-so)
Noise: Very Good
Reliability: Fair

Let us know what you think after youíve done a few loads in it. Samsung appliances tend to be well-styled and loaded with nice features, but are prone to needing more repairs than brands like LG.

You certainly got it for a good price!

OK reviews online. I would keep a backup dishwasher if it cannot be fixed.

Well for the price you canít go wrong. I always enjoy trying something new, If you donít like to you can flip it and get something else. Hopefully youíll do pics and a full write it when you get it.

Not joking. Our DW7933 was enough of an issue that it was not worth running dishes through the machine other than for sanitization purposes. The machine you purchased will NOT last long. Keep the KA and run high temp wash and sanitize rinse.

Another thing to consider is to see if there is a water fill restrictor in the machine somewhere. It will fill quicker and the overflow switch will stop it from overflowing. This could improve rinsing.

From the description it does look like itís a wash arm model and not one of the silly water wall models. I probably would have passed on that.

Can be used for work apartments

At the end of the day this can be used at my job for an apartment if we think it wonít be good for my own personal use so itís not a loss for me either way.
