setting up your dishwasher
Be sure to have your installer follow these instructions closely so that your new dishwasher works properly and that you’re not at risk of injury when washing dishes.
UNPACKING YOUR DISHWASHER

MEETING INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
Electrical supply and grounding
To prevent the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury, all wiring and grounding must be done in accordance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/FNPA, No. 70 Latest Revision and local codes and ordinances. It is the personal responsibility of the appliance owner to provide adequate electrical service for this appliance.
Never use an extension cord.
When preparing for installation, ensure that your power supply provides:
- An individual 120 Volt, 60Hz branch circuit serving only your dishwasher with a 15 AMP fuse or circuit breaker
Your dishwasher must be grounded. If your dishwasher malfunctions or breaks down, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for the electric current.
Never connect the ground wire to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines, or hot water pipes.
For a permanently connected appliance:
This appliance must be connected to a grounded metal, permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and then connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the appliance.
The hot water supply line pressure must be between 20 ~ 120 psi (140 ~ 830 kPa). Adjust the water heater to deliver water between 120 ˚F (49 ˚C) ~ 149 ˚F (65 ˚C).
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:
- 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 valve and faucets for leaks.
For safety, your dishwasher must be installed on a solidly constructed floor.
Never install your dishwasher on a platform or poorly supported structure.
Your dishwasher must be properly installed in accordance with the Installation Guide before you use it. If you did not receive an Installation Guide with your dishwasher, you can obtain one by visiting our website at www.samsung.com.

Do not wash the following items
- Acrylic or Aluminum items: Acrylic and aluminum items can discolor dishes with printed gold rim decoration and mar other items.
- Dishes treated with adhesive: Treated plastics can come apart. Wood, ivory, copper, and tin glued to dishes can come loose.
- Plastics with a temperature tolerance less than 194 ˚F (90 ˚C): Thin plastics wash and dry poorly, and may be damaged by elevated wash temperatures.
- Tin: Tin should be washed by hand and dried immediately as it can rust.
- Wooden utensils: Wooden items can crack.
ADJUSTING THE ANGLE OF THE PLATE SUPPORTS
You can adjust the angle of the tines in the upper rack to three different positions to match the size and shape of your dishes. To adjust the tines, grasp the handle at the back of the rack, and then push it left or right. See the illustration below.
In the lower rack, you can easily fold down the fold-down tines to make room for large items such as pots and pans. Remove the rack from the dishwasher, and then fold down the tines one at a time. See the illustration below.
ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE UPPER RACK
You can adjust the height of the upper rack in your Samsung dishwasher so that the lower rack can accommodate larger sized dishes. Depending on where you set the upper rack height, the lower rack can accommodate plates up to 12 in. (30 cm) in diameter and the upper rack can accommodated plates up to 8 in. (20 cm) in diameter.
- To lower the upper rack by 2 in. (5 cm), pull the adjust handles located at the left and right sides of the upper rack, and then push the upper rack downwards slightly at the same time.
- To raise the upper rack, just pull the upper rack upwards. The adjuster handle will latch and the upper rack will move to the high position.
We recommend adjusting the height of the upper rack before loading dishes into the rack. If you adjust the the rack after loading the dishes, you may damage the dishes. If you do not adjust with left and right handle together, the dishwasher door may not close properly.
Pull out the upper rack from the tub until it is fully revealed before adjusting the upper rack.
LOADING THE LOWER RACK
Load cookware (pots, pans, etc.), up to 12 in. (30 cm) in diameter into the lower rack. The lower rack has been especially designed for dinner dishes, soup bowls, plates, pots, lids, and casserole dishes.
Load your plates into the center column of the rack so that their top sides face each other. Load large items such as pans and pots into the dishwasher so their inner cavities face downwards. We recommend loading cups, stemware, and small plates into the upper rack.
See the recommended loading patterns below.
Loading large items into the Zone Booster Areas
You can load large items such as pots and pans into the left and/or right sides of the lower rack - the Zone Booster areas - for more effective cleaning. When you select the Zone Booster option, an additional, powerful jet is activated and directed at items in the Zone Booster areas. Make sure pot handles and other items do not interfere with the rotation of the nozzles and the water reflector.
LOADING THE UPPER RACK
The upper rack has been designed for small plates, mugs, glasses, and plastic items marked "dishwasher safe". Load your plates into the dishwasher so that their top sides face each other.
Make sure the loaded dishes do not interfere with the rotation of the nozzle which is located at the bottom of the upper rack. (Check this by rotating the nozzle by hand.)
When loading dishes, pull the upper rack out sufficiently so you can load it without striking the counter above.
Using the glass support
You can load cups or glasses onto the glass support. This is also very convenient for washing wine glasses. Hang your wine glasses onto the pegs of the glass support.
You can fold the glass support back when it is not being used.
USING THE 3RD (CUTLERY) RACK (FOR SOME MODELS)
Loading the cutlery rack
In addition to the standard cutlery basket in the lower rack, some models come with a cutlery rack. The cutlery rack is best suited for flatware and cooking or serving utensils. You can place cutlery and utensils randomly or regularly on the cutlery rack.
Heavily soiled utensils or items with baked on foods should be placed in the lower cutlery basket for the most effective cleaning.
Removing the Cutlery Rack
The entire cutlery rack can be removed if more space is needed on the upper rack for larger items.
