About This Product

The new Samsung Chef Collection Dishwasher features breakthrough WaterWall Technology that is designed to clean every item in the dishwasher with exceptional power and range.

WaterWall™ Technology

Samsung's revolutionary WaterWall™ technology reinvents dishwashing. Unlike our conventional dishwashers, the WaterWall™ line uses a powerful sweeping wall of water to leave dishes remarkably clean.

Zone Booster

The Zone Booster wash setting offers controllable intensive washing at the touch of a button. Selecting the option to wash the right or left zone on the bottom rack enables you to target hard-to-clean pots and pans for higher water pressure and temperature wash.


With a top rack that adjusts to accommodate tall and oversized cookware, this dishwasher features ultimate flexibility to clean all your pots, pans and silverware.

Third Rack with FlexTray™

Our third rack featuring a bendable silverware tray provides added loading and unloading convenience. The removable FlexTray is perfect for oversized or hard to fit items - allowing you to lay silverware flat for better cleaning.

Quiet Sound

Enjoy powerful, efficient dishwashing in peace with a special insulation system that significantly reduces noise to 40dBA - the quietest in its class.
**Based on MSRP and Wash System

Gliding Rack

Simply slide items in and out with ease. The ball bearing middle rack is ideal for easy loading and unloading of the dishwasher.


ENERGY STAR® rated products meet strict energy efficiency specifications set by the government. This energy-efficient dishwasher only uses 258 kWh per year.*

Speed Booster

The Speed Booster setting helps reduce the total time needed to complete the cleaning process. Get clean dishes quicker when you select the speed booster option. Ideal for everyday family dishes.

Adjustable Racking System

Clean even your tallest and most oversized items with ease with a flexible and easy to use design that allows for more space on the top rack. With the simple push of a lever you can fit more dishes, with enough space for 15 place settings.

15 Place Settings

Easily fit more dishes in this dishwasher with enough space for up to 15 place settings.

Digital Leakage Sensor

Enjoy worry-free dishwashing and protect your floor from any water-related damage. After sensing just 1.5 ounces of excess water, your dishwasher will shut itself off to prevent any further leaking.
