My wife and I purchased the Samsung 24 DMT400 Stainless Steel Built in Dishwasher (DMT400RHS) about 3 months ago and are extremely satisfied so far. From the quiet water pump to the twister nozzle system, we’ve had no problems with the Samsung DMT400.
We replaced our old dishwasher due to leakage from inside the where the dishwasher was built in. The Samsung 24 actually has a Digital Leakage Sensor which shuts of the electricity to the dishwasher. This would have been great feature to have on our previous dishwasher, which cost us hundreds of dollars in repairs to our kitchen.
Our previous dishwasher had one rotating jet on the bottom of the dishwasher, however the Samsung actually has three; one on the bottom, one on the top and one in the middle, and we’ve noticed that this gets our dishes a lot cleaner than we’re used to.
We’ve never had a filtration system within our dishwasher before and it makes all the difference when it comes to water stains on our glassware. Combine that with the stainless steel tub and our glasses really come out clean.
There are separate cycles for our pots & pans, our delicate china and wine glasses, and a normal cycle for our usual washing. This was our main purpose to purchasing the Samsung DMT400. We needed something that could handle heavy cooking as well as dinner events with our family. The added food disposer of the Samsung works very well when it comes to the caked on food that comes off of our dishes.
The Twister Nozzle has really been a pleasant surprise from the DMT400 dishwasher. Rather than usual jets, it looks like the nozzles actually twist the water out in a ‘tornado’ like motion which does appear to make a huge difference when cleaning our dishes. It does a much better job of cleaning our dishes with ease, rather than having to pre-soak our pots and pans every time we run a load in the dishwasher.
The Samsung has got a lopsided-shaped upper rack for our glasses, with room for shorter glasses and mugs on the left and taller wine glasses on the right. Additionally, the top rack is adjustable, so if we have all taller glasses that need to be washed it’s not a problem. This also makes it easier to fit in some taller items on the bottom rack as well. It’s a simple feature to the dishwasher, but it’s made washing some of our larger skillets and baking pans much easier than it was in the past.
This dishwasher is super quiet. Quieter than any dishwasher we’ve previously owned. During our research, we discovered that Samsung dishwashers had very low noise ratings, but we’re overly impressed at just how quiet this dishwasher is.
For the money, you can’t beat the Samsung DMT400. At a lower price than most Bosch or Whirlpool dishwashers, it’s got a lot of the same great features and it’s definitely a valuable buy. Installation was simple and stainless steel exterior looks great in our kitchen.
