Re: Can I take the bottom part of the dishwaher apart
Mkae sure you are running kitchen hot water faucet before starting dish washer. If not you are getting mostly a cold water wash thru out the cycle. Also make sure the jet dry dispenser is full. Always use the liquid jet dry as the small cubes you can get do not work nearly as well.

Check to make sure there is no food left at the bottom of the rack, then check to make sure you are adding the correct dishwasher soap that Samsung recommends to use with the dishwasher. If this is not working you could try using heavy duty dish washing cycle or try rinsing off your dishes before placing them into the dishwasher this reduces food buildup at the bottom of the dishwasher and helps clean your dishes better
if its hard ? then its minerals in your houses water , install a demineralize filter on the washer line , if it flakes off with your finger nail then its left over soap , your using too much or your water pump needs cleaned out or replaced
too much soap. if you have a water softener you only need about a tablespoon of soap. if there is a buildup in the dishwasher it make take several loads before it goes away. also check the wash arm to make sure all the holes are open.
Make sure that the rinse-aid(jet dry) container is full. If it is full have you noticed if it's level has not dropped. It is possible that the rinse-aid dispenser is plugged. This will cause the dishes to be cloudy. You can also try running the dishwaher empty and add a cup of vinegar to the bottom before your start. There is also this stuff called "dishwasher magic" that you can try running in the dishwasher to clean it. Try using a soap with the rinse-aid in it or install a basket with a rinse-aid tablet and see if that helps clear up those cloudy dishes.
Make sure you do not have a cookie sheet or something tall on the bottom rack that is stopping the soap dispenser from opening. This happened to me and I returned 2 brand new dishwahers back to the store thinking they were faulty until I made this discovery.
If the problem is that the dishwasher isn't filling with enough water, you should replace the water valve.
If it's getting enough water, but dishes have a white film on them or are still not getting clean, you may have hard water build up in your machine. Try to run a dishwasher cleaner thru it, or depending on how much buildup you have, you may need to take the dishwasher apart and clean it. I know JetDry puts a cleaner out, but I haven't personally tried it yet.
You can usually see white buildup inside the dishwasher if this is your problem.
The dispenser's unit should be replaced.
You can try as well to operate the dishwasher while putting the powder detergent or the tablet on the dishwasher's bottom and if you will get good results, to opereate the machine this way.
