I've checked the drain (it drains) and the hose (not kinked), but my model (DMT400 Series) states the filter is self-cleaning and "cleaning the filter is a thing of the past." So what's next? The tub eventually drained, but the lights are still blinking.
Why is it that I spent all this money on a high dollar Samsung dishwasher that advertises "there is no filter that requires cleaning" and that "cleaning the filter is a thing of the past" only to be told that the over-fill problem that I and others are having is due to food debris clogging the sensors? Wouldn't a filter prevent that? My cheap Sears Kenmore bare bones dishwasher at the office runs like a champ without all the bells and whistles, but WORKS! Guess I know what to do next time. Here's a bit of advise Samsung, PUT THE FILTER BACK IN THE DISHWASHER!
I face this problem fairly often. In the past I dismantled my Samsung Dishwasher and mainually cleaned the overfill proble and contianer. The best I can determine this problem is caused by oil and grease getting into the sensor unit. I found a solution that works for me that does not require dismantling the dishwasher. Pour hot water from the sink into the bottom of the dishwasher then add about about a pint or so of Liquid Plumber. I stir up the mixture then start the diswasher cycle. The first thing the dishwasher does is to drain the bottom of the dishwasher containing the Liquid Plumber hot Water Mixture. I have followed this procedure 3 times now and each time the problem is fixed until the next time.
We had parts replaced and the complete mother board replaced for the same issue of the over-level water error. Is there a recall or what is Samsung doing to get this issue fixed? Luckily, we have a home warranty but 3 times of service fees and the dishwasher being out of use for a month each time to wait for the part is a huge inconvenience. We also have all Samsung applicances and this is very disappointing.
i have the exact same problem over and over again on mine and i can,t afford to keep paying more in repairs than the dishwasher even cost. please let me know if anyone can tell you what,s
the problem with these dishwashers. less than a year old and it,s about to fine it,s way to the dump!
