Features of your new
samsung dishwasher
Your new Samsung Dishwasher will change the way you feel about doing
dishes. From its extra large capacity to its energy efficiency, your new Samsung
dishwasher has all the features to make your chores much less mundane.
1. Extra large capacity
The upper rack is slanted for larger dishes. The space has been maximized to accommodate
a variety of dish sizes.
2. Increased convenience
The smart auto cycle determines the level of soil on the dishes and initiates the optimal cycle
for cleaning. Use this feature to save water, energy, and time.
3. Extremely quiet operation
Efficient noise control technology gives you the quietest possible operation. Your new
Samsung dishwasher is quieter than ever.
4. Self-cleaning filter
This product keeps food waste internally while operating, then drains it automatically with the
water.
5. Smart digital leakage sensor
Samsung dishwasher is equipped with a unique digital leakage sensor designed to detect
even the smallest traces of water. Located below the dishwasher, the sensor immediately
shuts off the electrical connection after detecting a leak saving you from the expensive
aftermath of a water-related emergency.
This manual contains important information regarding the use and care of your new Samsung
dishwasher. Refer to it for descriptions of the control panel, instructions on how to use the
dishwasher, and tips for making the most of its state-of-the-art features and technologies. The
“Cycle chart” on page 22 offers an overview of the different cycles and the “Troubleshooting”

WARNING
CAUTION
CAUTION
Hazards or unsafe practices that may result in severe personal injury or
death.
Hazards or unsafe practices that may result in personal injury or property
damage.
To reduce the risk of fire, explosion, electric shock, or personal injury when
using your dishwasher, follow these basic safety precautions:
Do NOT attempt.
Do NOT disassemble.
Do NOT touch.
Follow directions explicitly.
Unplug the power plug from the wall socket.
Make sure the machine is grounded to prevent electric shock.

Safety information
Do not operate the dishwasher unless all ENCLOSURE panels are properly in place.
Do not tamper with the controls.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door, lid, or dish racks of the dishwasher.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher.
To reduce the risk of fire or explosion:
-
Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that
has not been used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot
water system has not been used for such a period, before using the dishwasher turn
on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will
release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use
an open flame during this time.
Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from
service or discarding it.
After unpacking the dishwasher, keep the packaging out of the reach of children.
The dishwasher is extremely heavy. Do not attempt to move or carry the dishwasher by
yourself. Two or more people are needed to move a dishwasher and avoid potential injuries.
Do not install the dishwasher near electrical components. Keep the dishwasher away from
open flames.
Install and level your dishwasher on an uncarpeted floor that can support its weight.
Your dishwasher must be properly grounded. Never connect it to an ungrounded outlet.
See page 8 for more information on grounding your dishwasher.
Connect the ground wire to the green ground connector in the terminal box.
After the dishwasher is installed, check that the drain hose is properly connected and
that there is no leakage from the hose connectors. If the drain hose is loose, it may cause
property damage.
The water supply line is susceptible to breakage. As time goes by, it becomes less flexible.
Check the line periodically. If it is swollen, torn, cut or there is a water leak, replace it
immediately.
To safely operate this appliance, familiarize yourself with its operations and exercise care
when using it.
Do not put gasoline, solvents, or other flammable materials inside the dishwasher. Do not
wash dishes exposed to these materials.
Keep your dishwasher detergent out of the reach of children. Detergent has an adverse
effect on human organs. It contains elements for polishing and is corrosive. Avoid letting the
detergent come into contact with your skin and eyes.
Do not push or place pressure on the door when it is open, as this may damage the
dishwasher or cause harm.

Most plumbing supply stores sell water supply lines of various lengths up to 10 feet (305
cm) long.
You can reduce the risk of leaks and water damage by:
•
•
•
WARNING
Making water faucets easily accessible.
Turning off faucets when the dishwasher is not in use.
Periodically checking for leaks at water supply line fittings.
Before using your dishwasher for the first time, check all connections at the water supply

Cleaning and maintaining your
dishwasher
Keeping your dishwasher clean improves its performance, reduces unnecessary
repairs, and lengthens its life.
CLEANING THE EXTERIOR
It’s best to clean spills on the outside of your dishwasher as they occur. Use a soft, damp cloth on the
control panel to gently wipe away spills and dust. Do not use benzene, wax, thinner, chlorine bleach, or
alcohol. These materials may discolor the inner walls and cause stains. Do not clean the dishwasher by
sprinkling water over it and avoid letting water come into contact with any of the electrical parts.
If your dishwasher has a stainless steel door panel, you can clean it with a stainless steel cleaner for
Home Appliances or similar product using a clean, soft cloth.
CLEANING THE INTERIOR
Clean the interior of your dishwasher periodically to remove any dirt or food particles. Wipe the inside of
the dishwasher and the inner part of the door with a wet dishcloth. We recommend filling the detergent
dispenser with dish detergent, and then running the dishwasher empty periodically using either the Normal
or Quick cycle with the sanitize option. This will keep your dishwasher clean.
If white spots and odor are still present in your dishwasher, run the Normal cycle with the dishwasher empty
and without detergent until it flushes. Then, interrupt the cycle and put an 8 ounce cup of white vinegar into
the lower basket. Close the dishwasher and let the cycle finish.
Do not remove the Seal tub front (the long rubber seal enclosing the opening of the dishwasher).
CAUTION
CLEANING THE NOZZLES
If your dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning adequately or the nozzles seem clogged, you can clean
each of the nozzles. When removing the nozzles, take care as they may break.
Lower nozzle
1. Check whether the nozzle holes are
clogged by food particles.
2. If cleaning is needed, remove the nozzle by
pulling it upwards.
3. Clean the nozzle, and then push it back
into place.
4. Check whether the nozzle is engaged
correctly by rotating it by hand.

STORING YOUR DISHWASHER
If you need to store your dishwasher for an extended period of time, first drain and disconnect it. If you leave
water in the hoses and internal components, you can damage the dishwasher.
After draining and disconnecting the dishwasher, be sure to turn off the water supply valve and circuit
breaker.
