Question about Samsung 24 in. DB5710DT Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Samsung DMR57 We bought a Samsung in June and have been trying to get it to work properly ever since. It is very quite which is great, but like the other person wrote the thing keeps coming on even when the child lock is on. We have had a repair man out twice but it they haven't fixed it yet. The dishwasher is right under the counter we use to prepare food so we often rub up against the controls. The power comes and and it starts the machine on whatever cycle it used last, or rinses the dishes. Sometimes the child lock works but most of the times it doesn't We have to keep the door propped open so it doesn't accidently come on. Even then when you are working in the kitchen up against the counter it is hard to keep it open. We are very frustrated with it. Some times we are washing dishes all day long. I've talked to Samsung, and they said they would send out another repair man, but the repair man said they wouldn't come again. I am still waiting to her from Samsung. I was wondering if others have had this problem too?

    have the same problem of always bumping it and turning it on. Bought it in August finally got to install it a week ago after a long wait for a repair before we even installed it and now we are having water valve problems.....



    WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK!!!!! I WOULD LOVE TO GET MY MONEY BACK!!!!

    The Samsung dishwasher we purchased is definitely not living up to expectations. Like you bumping or brushing against the controls starts the dishwasher. As annoying as that is that is not the real problem. ever since we bought it the system starts cycles on it own even on child lock. Today I started a load at 9am and its 2PM and the same load is washing over. But the now the display is flashing on from the timed cycle (showing 2 hours to go) to what I have noticed as an incremental number. Now up to 110. I suspect it is counting every time is screws up. We have called the service number and they first instructed to unplug and plug in back in to reset what ever system makes this machine work. Tomorrow we will call Samsung again.

SOURCE: freezer stopped working

Solomonau, it's hard to tell without being there exactly what is going on. I do know however,that in April of 2005 Samsung came out with a bullitin regarding the cap tube. It states that it has been inserted into the dryer incorrectly and can cause no cool situations. This is part of the sealed system which should be covered for 5 years. What you are describing sounds like a partial restriction, which could be taking place in that dryer and cap tube. If you were to post your model number, I would be able to tell if yours was included in this bullitin. You can then contact Samsung and inquire about this service bullitin, Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: LE Code Help - DMR57 Series

I had the same problem. On the bottom of the unit is a tray the catches any water that leaks from the tub. In the tray is a sensor that shuts off the unit and water if it get wet. Take the tray off and see if water is in it. If so, you have a leak somewhere. You might be able to dry off the sensor and get it to work but if you have a leak, you want to know. Best way to check is put the dishwasher up on two milk crates, leave the tray off and turn it on the rinse cycle and see if any water drips.
On my first unit, the rubber seal was installed wrong at the factory. They replaced the seal, but the error came up again. When checked out, the tub was leaking too. The dishwasher was replaced with another one. After one wash, the same problem occurred. LE error. I took it back and got a different Samsung model. It just stopped working after only two weeks. Evidently the touch pad sensors are bad because it will not turn on. Needless to say I'm getting tired of installing dishwashers. I think I will go for a different brand.

SOURCE: Samsung DVD HR735 doesn't recognise DVDs

It sounds like the laser in the DVD player is getting weak or has alignment problems. If the DVD that did not play in the samsung but played in others. I would tend to think its not alignment since you mentioned that it's been repaired before. Chances are the laser is weak but still within spec in order to prevent replacement. When My dvd players start to go they will generally stop recognizing burned media and thats your clue to replace it. They are very inexpensive to replace nowadays and have almost become disposable items. Probably not what you wanted to hear but it sounds like's like this player wasnt made very well.

SOURCE: Samsung LCD tv - Turns on and off by itself.

Not sure if this is the same problem, but I just moved and set up my Samsung 40" LCD and it has been going off and on by itself with the worst yesterday every 2-3 minutes. After speaking with a friend of mine who is not in the Tv business but just has good common sense, I determined it was likely a bad power strip. The bottom line is I replaced the crappy power strip (which was fully loaded with all 6 outlets in use) with the higher quality one I had in the other room. The problem is gone. I suspect the power strip was failing or real bad quality........try plugging the tv directly into the wall outlet first. hope this helped.

SOURCE: Samsung DMR77LHS Dishwasher has power to

This does sound like a problem with the "anti-flood" device that does detect water (leak / spill) at the base of the washer. This device is a protection device that consists of a polystirene float and a micro swithch. Once a water leak od spill is detected it automatically puts the washer in pump out mode. You need to determine if a leak exists that has caused the float to trigger the micro switch and clear the water / leak. This should put the washer back to normal.

Error F1 on sansung dishwasher


F1 fault code is an indication that you have a water leak. Before calling in a professional, try to troubleshoot the problem on your own. Many times it can be something as simple as a leaky hose, a broken seal or a blocked drain hose causing the F1 error.

If your dishes have a cloudy white film or residue, then you probably have hard water deposits. Recently many state governments passed laws that changed the ingredients in dishwasher detergents, and now the detergents are less effective. There's a new product that was created to solve this problem. It's all natural, contains no phosphate, and it works great. It's a powder you add to each wash cycle. You use 1-2 tablespoons and a lot less of your normal detergent. So your cost per wash does not increase. Search for "CitriClean of Florida"
