Questions & Answers for samsung 24" Dishwasher

Question

How long are the cycles?

Can anyone tell me how long the cycles are? For Normal, delicate and sanitize? They seem like they are extremely long but I am not sure. Do these questions go to anyone in Samsung to be answered?

Attached is a copy of the Cycle Chart for the DMT300 dishwasher, with estimated times provided in the right hand column. These cycle times, which include drying, are fairly standard for the industry, and vary greatly from Quick Wash (81 minutes) to Heavy (193 minutes) depending on how heavily soiled the dishes are. Keep in mind that Samsung's dishwashers use the fan driven condensation drying method which helps to conserve energy by relying on residual heat from the dishes rather than the heating element to dry.

Thank you for the question!

Question

Do I need to add rinse aid to every wash for the dishwasher to dry the dishes?

I recently purchased this dishwasher and when I ran a Normal cycle with a full load of dishes, the dishes were dripping wet and spotted when the cycle ended. How do I get the dishwasher to dry the dishes?

The earlier contributor is right, Samsung does recommend using a rinse aid which helps to facilitate drying while preventing spotting. For best performance, the temperature of the hot water supply should be set at 120°F. In addition, selecting the Sanitize cycle, which heats the water up even more, can help the drying process.

Do you have the dishwasher hooked up to a hot water source? Was it on a normal cycle. Quick wash cycle does not dry the dishes. Just fill the rinse aid compartment and the rinse aid is added automatically. I use Jet Dry Turbo. It works the best.

The DMT300 dishwasher heats the water as needed to achieve the preset temperatures, though for optimal performance the supplied water should be set at between 120-140°F.

Question

Dishwasher DMT300 the wash cycle (quick and Normal) take 3 1/2 hours for the wash cycle, not including drying time in the normal cycle.

I had a service man come to look at the dishwasher and he said that the water going in is too cold, which doesn't make sense to me? Doesn't the dishwasher heat the water to a specified temp? If it doesn't heat to a specified temp, why would the wash cycle be longer due too cold water being used. I did an experiment and ran the hot water in the sink for the entire wash cycle and once again the wash cycle took 3 1/2 hours.

I cannot refute nor endorse the diagnosis by your repairman. Assuming that he is right, you could try to raise the temperature on the knob found on your hot water heater to increase the temperature. Also, running the hot water at your sink during the cycle is only going to sap the heat from the water going into your dishwasher.

hope this helps

answer 2
Thanks for the question. The wash time may vary depending on several factors, including the water pressure, drain conditions, and temperature of the supplied water. It takes time for water to heat up, so a cycle run using supplied water that is below the recommended temperature will take longer than a load run when the supplied water is at the recommended temperature. Adding options onto the cycle will also increase the cycle time, especially if the Sanitize option is selected since the water temperature requirements are higher. Following are the recommended settings for the supplied water:
- The water pressure should be between 20 and 120 psi.
- The temperature of the supplied water should be between 120°F - 140°F. Please make sure your dishwasher is connected to the hot water line.

If your home's supplied water meets these specifications and your cycle times continue to be excessively long, I would suggest you call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you further.

Question

How do I get rid of Bad odor?

I went to you dishwasher Q & A several weeks ago and found a Samsung suggestion to use a detergent that contains a bleach to eliminate the odor. We have run the diswasher 3-4 times since using the bleach additive and we still have the terrible smell after a day or two. Seems like the dishwasher is not completely draining on its last cycle, leaving water to stand and become pungent. I need help quickly, my wife cannot stand the unpleasant odor.

I'm sorry to hear you're having an issue with your DMT300. If the dishwasher is not draining properly, please check the drain hose for bend or kinks that could obstruct flow. If there is no air gap in the connection, it's important to hang the middle of the drain hose in a high location to prevent backflow, as instructed on page 16 of the installation guide (see the figure below). Besides the steps you've already taken, it may also help to wipe the sides and bottom of the door down with the cleaning solution to remove spills that could promote mildew, and run a Normal or Quick cycle with the Sanitize option selected with detergent but without dishes. If the odor still persists, 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.

I hope these steps help to remove the odor and prevent if from recurring.

The DMT300RFS/XAA should have come with a kickplate to cover the feet, but the kickplate itself does have two screws in the front. The screws match the color of the kickplate.

I'm sorry to hear you're having an issue with the detergent dispenser on your DMT300RFS. Please click on the link below then select "Troubleshooting ► Cleaning Performance ► Detergent Is Not Dispensing Properly": http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber...

I would also suggest checking your water pressure and temperature to ensure they are set correctly to effectively dissolve the detergent and clean the dishes. The supplied water pressure should be between 20 and 120 psi, and the temperature should be at least 120˚F.

If these suggestions do not help to resolve the issue, please use the service request link provided in the troubleshooting article for further assistance.

Samsung's DMT300RFS uses a fan-driven condensation drying method, rather than relying on the heating element to dry the dishes. The heating element is used to heat the water as necessary; condensation drying then uses the residual heat on the dishes to evaporate the water, which condensates on the cooler stainless steel tub walls and drains from the tub. Vents in the door allow heat and moisture to escape, and the fan helps to draw moisture from the dishes, as well, all of which aids the drying process while helping to save energy.

The DMT300 does not come with a power cord, and would need to be connected to a 120 Volt, 60 Hz, 15-amp dedicated circuit. I would suggest consulting with your appliance retailer and qualified installer regarding the type of connection (3-prong, 4-prong or hard-wiring) that is appropriate for your building and meets local codes.

The wash and rinse temperatures in the DMT300 vary depending on which cycles and options are selected. As stated in the User Manual, for best performance, Samsung recommends the temperature of the supplied water be 120˚F. However, some customers may choose to set their household's water heater to a lower temperature, such as between 110˚F and 120˚F. If this is the case, then the water temperature during the Main Wash portion of the Normal Cycle might be at the lower end of the range. If your hot water supply inlet is reading 135˚F, then it would not need to be heated as much in order to achieve the desired 149˚F Heavy Cycle Main Wash temperature, compared to homes set at lower temperatures.

When the Sanitize cycle is selected, the maximum temperature is 162˚F during the last rinse. Please refer to the Cycle Chart below for temperature information during each portion of the different cycles. This chart can also be found on page 22 of the User Manual.

Question

How to eliminate pre-wash2 in Normal Cycle

The manual indicates that in Normal Cycle it is possible to eliminate the 2nd pre-wash cycle and 2nd rinse cycle but the manual does not explain how to do it.

Please send detailed instructions on how to:

1. Eliminate pre-wash2 in Normal Cycle.

2. Eliminate rinse2 in Normal Cycle.

3. Can the "Child Lock" be activated while the dishwasher is operating to prevent children from interrupting the washing cycles? If so, how is that done?

4. Can the "Child Lock" be activated when the dishwasher is OFF without having the control panel lights remaining on? If so, how is this done?

These questions really should be addressed in the Owner's Manual.

Thank you for the questions! The DMT300 automatically detects the amount of soil in the water using the turbidity sensor, and allows/disallows the extra pre-wash and rinse cycles as needed. The child lock can be engaged while the machine is operating by pressing and holding the “Sanitize” button for 3 seconds. If the child lock was engaged on the last load, and not turned off, it will remain on the next time the unit is powered on. The child lock button does not disable the power button; if the machine is on, the lights will be on, and if the machine is off, the lights will be off.

I hope this clarifies your questions/concerns :)
