The Samsung DW80R5061US dishwasher is a great option if you’re looking for a great performing dishwasher for under $600. Many luxury features come standard on this dishwasher such as a fast cycle, 3rd cutlery rack, and open-air drying. This model also includes the StormWash™ feature, designed to target heavily soiled dishes, pots, and pans.

Although the Samsung DW80R5061US dishwasher shares many features with the higher-price Samsung models, the Samsung DW80R5061US) dishwasher is different because it has a hard food disposer. The hard food disposer at the bottom of the dishwasher is designed to grind up leftover food particles during the cleaning cycle. The advantage to getting a dishwasher with a food disposer is it’s self-cleaning and therefore lower maintenance.

The downside is the hard food disposer adds more noise to the dishwasher cycle than dishwashers with a filter catch system. Keep in mind that in the last few years, dishwashers are designed to be extremely quiet. It’s likely that this model at (48 dB) could be quieter than your current dishwasher, even if it has a hard food disposer.

The Samsung DW80R7060Uis a top selling dishwasher because it’s packed with great features, quiet operation, and better-quality racks for under $1000.

Instead of having a hard food disposer, the Samsung (DW80R7060U) dishwasher has a filter that catches loose food particles. Most of the food that reaches the filter will eventually pass through on its own, but it’s a good idea to check on the filter every few weeks.

The Smsung DW80R7060U dishwasher has premium ball-bearing racks which make it easier to get items in and out of the dishwasher. The ball-bearing racks feel more sturdy and will make it easier to load and unload your dishwasher.

The Samsung DW80R9950US dishwasher is Samsung’s premium dishwasher model. This model is smart (Wifi enabled), extremely quiet at 39 dB, and has a linear wash system, a new wash arm technology designed for more even coverage.

Why should you consider a smart dishwasher?
Smart (Wifi enabled) dishwashers could make your life easier in a number of ways. With the Samsung DW80R9950US dishwasher you run, stop, or select a cycle from your smartphone, tablet, or smart speaker. By connecting your dishwasher to Wifi, you can also monitor the cycle status, performance, or health of your appliance. The Samsung DW80R9950US dishwasher is also compatible with Amazon Dash replenishment to make sure you never run out of detergent.

What is the Samsung Linear Wash System?
Traditional dishwashers have a spray arm that spins around to disperse water in the dishwasher. The Samsung Linear Wash System is a spray arm that runs across the dishwasher floor, and is designed to target all areas of the lower dishwasher rack for a consistent even clean.

If you’re tired of loading your dishwasher a specific way to get clean dishes, you might want to consider the Samsung DW80R9950XX dishwasher with a linear wash system because the linear wash system is designed to evenly clean all the items on the lower rack.

In all, Samsung dishwashers give you a lot of features for your dollar. The entry, middle, and top of the line models share many features like open-air drying, full stainless interior, and an express cycle. The Samsung DW80R5061US dishwasher is a great entry-level option. However, it could be worth spending more for the better racks and quiet performance of the Samsung DW80R7060U dishwasher. If you’re looking for a premium dishwasher with very even cleaning on the lower rack, consider the Samsung DW80R9950US. You’ll love its ultra quiet operation, new innovative wash system, and smart (Wi-fi enabled) benefits.
