... purchased this dishwasher from Lowes along with a very nice Samsung refrigerator

Summary: We purchased this dishwasher from Lowes along with a very nice Samsung refrigerator, which is excellent by the way. This Samsung dishwasher was one of the top models of dishwashers and was priced accordingly. We bought this because of the stainless steel tub, because the handle matched the ones on the Samsung refrigerator, and because it was touted as a top model.
we did not do our homework on this dishwasher and are quite disappointed.

Summary: Purchased in March, 2014 - Cleans well and drys well, however we have had a consistent leak (already replaced once) and cannot get the delay start to function. Unfortunately, we did not do our homework on this dishwasher and are quite disappointed.
Summary: We LOVE the construction of the dishwasher - it is very spacious and we were able to fit a LOT in it. However, we were terribly disappointed when we realized (after installing) that it does not have a drying option. Therefore, the dishes come out soaking wet. Apparently using a rinse aid helps as well as using the "sanitize" cycle. We will be trying that, but it looks like we'll be drying a lot of dishes by hand. Other than that, we like it.
Summary: Does not clean anything that is not directly over the spray arms. not heating element, plastics and light material do not dry. Since there is no complete drying, there is a bad smell after about 4 hours if you do not clear the dishwasher. We are having it removed and replaced with a GE from HHGREG, it isn't even worth the rebates.
Cons: Doesn't Clean Thoroughly, Doesn't Dry Well, Long Cycle, No heating element
Summary: This model does not have a heating element, and will not effectively dry your dishes. If this is an important feature to you, consider something different. We generally load our dishes at night, and do not open it to add or remove dishes in the middle of the cycle. In the morning, dishes were still dripping wet with droplets of water. The interior walls and door of the dishwasher also had water droplets all over it.
Summary: I was reluctant and didn't end up buying a Samsung refrigerator due to the lack of positive reviews (you could say the reviews were mostly negative in 100+ reviews) but decided to give their dishwashers a chance since they are priced slightly cheaper than their competition while offering the same, if not more, features. This one has a stainless interior, decent silverware baskets, several adjustments for dishes and racks, and a nice stainless exterior.
Summary: On installation, the basin of this machine is bigger than typical. The incoming pipe had to be bent to fit machine in. The tub had a bad odor on installation. Samsung suggested this was because of leftover food in our house garbage disposal. This has not previously been a problem for us and the disposal has been cleaned. Samsung suggested running a cycle with vinegar inside the machine. Problem continues. The machine has started twice when door was open.
