JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Samsung is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: 3 years Samsung Dishwasher mpdel DW80F600UTS

The new boards are programmed differently, they do not require input from the sensor. You cannot modify the board programming in an older model.

Using an additive with the detergent, such as Lemi Shine, will help keep it clean and trouble free, though!
