Appliance-related water damage can be EXPENSIVE. In 2021, the average water-related insurance claim totaled more than $11,000. And where water damage is afoot, dishwashers are a prime suspect. But as Entrusted, a water restoration company explains, “a dishwasher is designed to work for only 10 years. “ Ignore the “only” – 10 years is what matters. New dishwashers simply shouldn’t leak. And, in fact, most don’t. But owners of Samsung Dishwashers report that not only do Samsung Dishwashers leak – Samsung Dishwashers also display an LC error code that supposedly signals a leak only to discover they can’t find one, or that the tub still is full of water because their Samsung Dishwasher has shut-off mid-cycle and won’t drain, only to start leaking thereafter.

Let’s start with the biggest risk: a leaking dishwasher. Samsung Dishwasher owners have taken to retailer websites en masse to report that Samsung Dishwashers begin to leak shortly after the warranty has expired. A Samsung Dishwasher owner posting under the ever-appropriate handle “Disappointed” reports that his Samsung Dishwasher.

Doesn’t clean, Doesn’t dry, Doesn’t drain – always water puddled inside and now it started leaking on the outside on my kitchen floor. Only had this dishwasher for 18 months!!!

Although less expensive than premium brands like Viking, Frigidaire sells appliances like its dishwashers at a considerable premium over competitive offerings. Unfortunately, Frigidaire dishwashers simply do not live up to the hype as consumers report a slew of errors, defects and broken parts that lead Frigidaire dishwashers to break, if not become completely inoperable.

According to consumers, the Frigidaire dishwasher’s latch is defective and often breaks, or does not latch completely; and if the door doesn’t latch, the dishwasher won’t turn on. Worse yet, if a Frigidaire dishwasher’s defective latch is broken, water also may leak and damage the surrounding flooring, forcing consumers to incur even greater costs. As one consumer reports:


In fact, Frigidaire dishwasher latches seem to break or fail so often that a replacement Frigidaire dishwasher latch—which some claim Frigidaire redesigned due to a Defect—has hundreds of reviews on Amazon. As one consumer exclaimed,

“This unit is absolute garbage. Do not buy it!! I never leave reviews unless its bad. I have had this machine for 1 month. Latch on door broke after 3 weeks. Mfctr came out and replace latch, it happened again after 7 days!! Does fridgidaire have any quality control? I want my money back.” Continue reading
