I am very happy with this product. I like how quiet it is. The only thing I would change is how the arrangement is on the bottom shelf. Put it is a great product

A little disappointed

Gary Alan 8/20/2019

I replaced a 10 year old Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher which stoped working. I figured it wasn't worth repairing and decided to "upgrade" to Bosch, everyone talks about Bosch being the best for dishwashers. My initial impressino was that it seemed less sturdy than the Frigidaire but I attributed that to newer, lighter materials. It does wash dishes just fine, and is extremely quiet, but there is a lot more residual water on top of cups and some bowls than I would like, even in "Sanitize" mode.

Great dishwasher

Miriam 6/21/2018

This dishwasher cleans everything well. I don't need to rinse first. It is extremely quiet. I have to see the light at the bottom to tell it is running.It holds a lot of dishes! I did not think I would ever have another dishwasher that would hold as many as my previous Whirlpool, but this 1 holds it all. It does take a long time to complete a cycle.

Broke after 1 year

Alex 5/22/2018

Total piece of junk. Broke and wouldn't drain after a little over a year. Going to cost $400 to have it repaired. Never buy this brand again. This is the only "high end" brand I've ever had fail on me in such period of time in my life.

Outstanding product !!

jimmy 2/1/2018

I have had the dishwasher for a month.I am very pleased with how great a job it does of washing dishes. The first time I used it I literally had to stand next to it to be sure water was going into the machine, that is how quiet it is ! The dishes come out exceptionally clean and dry.What a difference this unit is compared to my 18 year old washer it replaced. Have no problems referring Bosch to any one I hear of wanting to buy a new unit.

WASHES GREAT LOADS AND UNLOADS DANGEROUSLY

ASBURY 6/29/2017

THIS MACHINE RUNS QUIETLY, WASHES GLASSES AND DISHES BEAUTIFULLY but... the bottom pull out drawer has no track so it and the dishes in it fall sideways, dishes bark and chip and is dangerous... especially if you are not used to the problem...would have done some research on this model but there are so many to choose from its OVERWHELMING ... AM PLANNING TO HAVE IT REMOVED AND REPLACED UNLESS THERE IS A FACTORY FIX...

Cleans great but racks are terribly designed

jcase16 6/13/2017

So the dish washer cleans great. I love how quiet it is. However, it only dries our dishes if we buy rinse aid and use the highest amount and do extra dry every time. Otherwise all of the dishes come out soaked. The racks are simply awful. I still have no idea why they put those little prongs on the top rack. Nothing I try to put there works well and this makes it so you cannot easily put cups there which are usually what ends up on top. The lower rack was designed to have three different areas where plates could go. I like that they are spaced differently so different plates of flat objects could be placed in different areas. However the place that makes the most sense for our plates based on thickness of the plate is the area that butts up against the silverware bin. So unless our plate is a super small one then it doesnt properly fit there. So we either have to use the part than can lay down when needed or the part that holds half as many plates because the gaps are bigger. Seriously? Shrink the utensil bin. That bin is way too big and gets in the way of the plate area mentioned above. I would make it half the size. Also the bottom rack just falls off. It's designed terribly. It's a rack on some "guided" wheels. If my toddler grabs it then she pulls it right off the guide and sometimes pulls the dishes with it. There is nothing keeping it in place and sometimes it is difficult to slide it out without the rack coming out of the grooves. So this dishwasher seems to be doing it's job in cleaning our dishes but if I could do it all over again then I may pay more attention tot he layout of the racks as this has been a pain in the rear.

Very Quiet

Froggie 5/25/2017

Purchased a little over a month ago. When installed it was so quiet I thought it was not working. The loading is different than my old one so that was a learning curve, and I don't think it holds as much. Using the 60 minute cycle has not proved to be so great unless you are just wanting a quick rinse to remove dust, etc. The dishes are way too wet when the 60 min. cycle is finished. Other that that it is great. Don't know if the rack pull handles (blue that say Bosch) or small item clips were supposed to be in the box, but they were not. Looking at the photos I see the pull handles would be an asset. Did not find them on the accessory/part list either. Guess I need to call. If you do not pull or push the bottom rack dead center it quickly is off track and you have to re-position it. I presume if the pull handles were there it would prompt one to use them eliminating the off track problem over all this is a 4.5 so far, but no 4.5 rating so I gave them a full 5.

Very Satisfied With Dishwasher

maverick87f14 5/17/2017

I've owned this dishwasher for approximately 10 months and so far I'm quite impressed. Here's what I like: it's very quiet, so quiet that guests that come over the house don't event realize I have a dishwasher running, until I point it out to them. The sound of the water draining out of the dishwasher is the only audible noise. The other thing I like is the selection of wash and dry modes. The unit, itself, also seems quite sturdy. There's two things I think could be better: every few loads there's a few dishes that don't come out as clean as I think they should. I have to run them through again. Especially anything I place on the utensil rack sitting above the top rack. The second item that could be better is the drying capability. If you don't use rinse aid, your dishes will not come out dry. Overall I'm very happy with the dishwasher. For it's price point, I don't think you can get much better. You want more features, or better performance, you're just going to have to pay more money for a higher end model.

Zebulon 1/22/2017

We've only had the dishwasher a week but I can tell you it cleans the dishes very well and there are no water spots! It still leaves water on top of coffee cups and baby nipple/bottle parts, even when using the extra dry feature. It also seems to have less room than our previous dishwasher as far as how much I can load but that may be just me getting used to where to put my dishes. I wish this model had a third drawer. It's louder than some dishwashers but I prefer it that way so I don't accidentally open it mid-cycle.

Love the Design and Features

reviewerinus 12/30/2016

I just had this dishwasher installed today and am currently running my first load. I love the look of the dishwasher and how the interior is laid out for loading. This one replaces one of the same model that was installed last week which was defective. My plumbers said it had previously been installed which means it was a returned item, so I blame the retailer for this rather than Bosch, since a previously used item should never be sold as new. I look forward to using this dishwasher and will post updates after using it for some time.

I LOVE my new BOSCH dishwasher!!

DiMac 11/21/2016

I have had my BOSCH dishwasher about a month and I LOVE it! One feature I did not think I would use much is the utensil rack on top...It is an amazing feature! I use it all the time to put my bigger utensils on that rack and save the utensil basket for smaller items. This is one of the quietest dishwashers I have ever owned and I love the red light that lets me know the dishwasher is running. Another feature that is essential to where I live is the delay start. I can delay the start of my dishwasher for up to 24 hours. Our water pressure is low, so we can't run many things that require water all at the same time. I can set the delay for a time when we are not using much water and forget about it!. Plus, this dishwasher is HE and uses less water and detergent, which saves me money! Another feature that is awesome is the Halfload button. If I only have a partial load, but I don't want to leave it over night, I go ahead and run the dishwasher without worrying about wasting water. A feature that I am looking forward to using, with the holidays coming up, is Speed 60. I always have a ton of pots and pans while I am cooking and now I can wash them quickly without waiting for the regular longer cycle. I could go on and on about the features of this dishwasher!! I would definitely recommend this dishwasher to anyone looking for excellent quality, with lots of features at a reasonable price!!

I owned a Bosch dishwasher prior to this purchase and unfortunately had to leave it behind when my family moved. When the dishwasher we inherited from our move recently broke down, we did not hesitate to purchase a new Bosch based on the past performance and features of the older Bosch we had to leave behind.

Not yet completely sure, but OK so far

gal6 8/15/2016

Just put in yesterday and only have run empty to test. Without dishes in side the water sloshing makes a fair bit of noise but the motor is totally silent. The only issue I had was really user error but the directions given for operation were not very clear on how to cancel a cycle so initially could not get it to work. Had to call customer service to find out you have to open the door then press the start for 3 seconds and close it again and then it will drain. ( Btw, customer service was easy to get a hold of and was quick to help) Maybe obvious to everyone else but if you have not had a dw that the buttons disable when the door is closed its a new idea and the directions should say to open the door first. Anxious to see how well it cleans and how quiet it is with a full load. Really happy with purchase so far though as its a nice looking dw with great features at a really good price.

Jim32 6/29/2016

We wanted a quiet dishwasher due to location in kitchen adjacent to the great room. What a surprise! The only indication that it's operating is the red light that shines on the floor. You cannot hear it fill and when changing from wash to rinse there are no loud noises to interfere with conversations. Couldn't have made a better choice.

I purchased this dishwasher a month ago, originally 5 months ago i purchased a Samsung dishwasher, it was horrible and broke down within a month, luckily best buy agreed to exchange and I chose the Bosch, I couldnt be happier with a dishwasher, very low noise level, the water gets hot enough to clean the dishes, where as the previous one did not, drys the dishes perfectly, not one complaint can I find.
