I bought this from a various shop but thought I should warn others about this dishwasher. This is a decent looking dishwasher but that is the only amazing point. In short we returned this so-called dishwasher because it 1) does not clean; 2) leaves the dishes soaked; 3) does not load well despite having a rather nice third rack; and 4) the inside stinks of plastic despite having been run at least 8 times on maximum wash and rinse to clear out the odor. There are also some problems with how quiet it is that I will describe later. They may or may not be a issue for you, but you pay quite a bit more to obtain the additional quiet of this model over a related one that is only a bit e instructions say you should place the dirty side of the dishes facing the wash arms but the spacing and angle of the rack pegs means that if you place the dishes in that method you can't obtain very a lot of dishes in. If you do it that method with lots of zone between the plates etc. the dishwasher will mostly clean them. If you load it as shown in the pictures so you can obtain all of the 12 put settings in, forget it, nothing will obtain e dishwasher has no heating element and is supposed to dry the dishes by condensation of the hot rinse water onto the walls of the dishwasher where it then drains away. I live at high altitude and normally things dry very, very quickly but this dishwasher has no vents and the condensation drying does not work so even 10 hours or more after the cycle has finished on the "extra dry" setting, things are still wet. It is so dry here I have always turned off the drying cycle on my previous dishwashers and everything was dry a few hours after the cycle, but my other dishwashers have vents. This is a really stupid ere are several websites on the internet devoted to stink issues with Bosch dishwashers. Some people have issues with the drain installation where they obtain sewer gasses into the dishwasher. Proper installation should fix this. Some people have a poor smell from the bitumen in the outside insulation. We had a nasty plastic order from inside of the dishwasher. It might be a defect in ours. We did search some nasty oily red items in the filter so a seal on the motor might have failed but this is a brand fresh dishwasher. Whatever the cause, it does not go away and can impart a poor smell to stuff that the dishwasher is supposed to ly, the dishwasher is supposed to be very quiet at 39 dBA. Well that is sort of real at quite a cost. To hold the sound down while it is running, they have eliminated the grinder that minces up and disposes of any meal particles that come off the dishes, so you have to clean out the filter by hand every month or so. That might be OK, but when the dishwasher drains, it is very loud so you have the additional inconvenience of cleaning the filter and the dishwasher isn't all that ere may be better Bosch dishwashers but I think the stupid condensation drying is now their standard as is the annoying manual-clean filter. There seem to be several stink issues and I don't know if some models are better or worse on that. I certainly will never have another Bosch dishwasher.
Not good design. Error Code E15 and it won't work. Huge plates push water through the side and water gets in the bottom and a float shuts it down. You have to actually PULL the machine out and sop up the water to obtain this horrible machine to work. Poor design on that part. The architect talked me into this thing and it is BAD. Not only that, you cannot place in long stem wine glasses without them knocking versus each other. Overall I would give it a ZERO rating if I could. I am making the appliance people take it out and place in a Miele like the ones I have used for years in different homes I have owned. UGH.
I decided to buy the Bosch after hearing how amazing the dishwasher was from two friends. Based on online reviews, I was between the Kitchen Aid and Bosch. I regret my decision to buy this product as this dishwasher stopped working 6 weeks out of warranty. The dishwasher stopped working in mid cycle, and now does not turn this point, I have to incur the expenses for a technician visit and repair for a product that is touted as being "top of the line." When spending approximately $1000 for a dishwasher, you wouldn't expect the product to stop functioning just weeks out of the 1 year warranty. I was hoping that either Bosch or Sears would take ownership on their product. Instead, they are stuck on the 1 year warranty. It's sad that Bosch doesn't stand by their product, despite the fact that product stopped working 6 weeks out of warranty. At this point I feel that buying a standard middle of the street branded dishwasher is a better expenditure than buying a higher end product. I'm really disappointed with Bosch's customer service. For all person considering buying a Bosch dishwasher, I would reconsider buying an alternative brand with better customer service.
Bought this thing and had it professionally installed. It smelled fine until I used it for the first time. Now it smells like tar. All my dishes come out smelling like this. If i drink water out of a cup that was in this dishwasher the water even taste like tar a little. It’s bad.
Absolute overpriced garbage. This dishwasher beeps and beeps when the cycles are done and no one at their customer service center knows how to turn it off. Why would you create a dishwasher that’s marketed as “quiet” that literally won’t stop beeping at you when the cycle finishes? Ok that’s my first issue. Second issue is the dishwasher stopped working. I call in to obtain support. It’s someone reading from a script who sounds like they’ve never even seen a dishwasher before in their life. They have no clue about how to troubleshoot it and within mins tell me I’m out of my 1 year warranty and it will be a $139 service visit plus $30 per 15 mins for labor...plus parts! Forget this company. They don’t take care of their customers. Stay away!!!
Very amazing dishwasher... I was sceptical initially regarding the absence of a heating element however all of our dishes have come dry with the usual exception of Tupperware occasionally having some water on it. All dishes are crystal clean! I just realized that most dishwashers require a hot water line which our previous houses did not have to the dishwasher. This changed combined with the BOSH has been amazing. Amazing product as observed for the latest month.
Love it! The only improvement would be to adjust the height of the upper rack so you can fit taller glassware. The level can adjust but not enough.
I'M UPDATING THIS REVIEW TO SIMPLY SAY THAT EVERYTHING IN THIS REVIEW STILL HOLDS TRUE AFTER 4 ere. I said it. I actually love my dishwasher.A year ago, we "upgraded"; from a top-of-the-line KitchenAid to the equally top-of-the-line 800 series from Bosch. I have a few frustrations with Bosch usability -- small, simple, things that give the Bosch more of a "learning curve"; than should be important -- but after living with it for a while, I honestly marvel at how we place up with the KitchenAid for so long.WHY WE CHOSE BOSCH OVER KITCHENAIDBosch middle and third racks are functionally much deeper than KitchenAid's. With the Bosch, I can lower the middle rack to its lowest position and still fit dinner plates below with plenty of room for the water to circulate. This is because of Bosch's slanted racks, and the lack of an exposed heating element. So the Bosch middle rack can handle all types of taller items, and the third rack is outstanding -- it can fit spatulas, tongs, ramekins, wisks, even 10" chefs knives on their sides... all with plenty of room left for silverware.With all that room up top, you don't even need silverware baskets most of the time, but the Bosch Duo-Flex silverware baskets are another reason we chose Bosch, because they are built like a tank. By contrast, our KitchenAid baskets had to be replaced every 3 years or so, as the plastic broke and developed holes that silverware would fall e Bosch is much less likely to melt your plastic items, even on the lower rack (because there's no exposed heating element).All the objections we heard about the Bosch -- even from appliance salesmen -- proved to be misinformed. If you understand how to use it, then dishes DON'T come out wet, and the dishwasher DOESN'T smell, and rinsing the filter is not an every day -- or even every month -- necessity.And finally, several mates with Bosch dishwashers report years of quiet performance, while my $1,100 KitchenAid dishwasher turned out to be a piece of junk. It stopped cleaning effectively after only 7 years, and the racks lasted even fewer years, because the plastic parts holding them together couldn't stand the heat.WHY WE CHOSE THE 800 SERIES OVER THE 500 OR THE BENCHMARK SERIESThe 500 series is probably the best buy. It is highly rated, and is functionally the same dishwasher as the 800 series. I was just personally nervous about the raised buttons on the 500 series, which didn't seem as likely to handle years of moisture as the flat touch buttons on the 800 series. Also, most of 500 series models do not have those built-like-a-tank Duo-Flex silverware e Benchmark series has all this and more, such as a flexible top tray and a TimeLight that projects the remaining cycle time on the floor, but the price difference just didn't seem worth it.WHY WE CHOSE THE HIDDEN CONTROLS (Bar or Pocket Handle) OVER THE RECESSED HANDLE VERSIONThe visible controls on the recessed handle model are unobtrusive enough to blend into any kitchen, and you might like having a display showing how much time is left in the cycle (by all accounts, it's also more accurate than the KitchenAid version). However, some reviewers here on Amazon said that the label markings on the exterior of those models begin to wear off with repeated use, making your perfectly well-functioning fresh dishwasher look like something old and beat up in your kitchen. People experiencing this are not happy. So we went with the bar handle with the hidden controls, which looks great. If I wish to know how much time is left in the cycle, I just have to begin the door and interrupt it.WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALL THESE MODEL NUMBERS?I know, right?First 3 letters: SHX=bar handle, SHP=Pocket handle, SHE=Recessed handle, SHS=Scoop handleNext 3 letters: 63T=300 series, 65T=500 series, 68T=800 series, 7PT/8PT/9PT=Benchmark series, N8U=Exclusive model sold through distributorsThe next 3 letters are a lot more confusing, but the largest differences are around which cycles are offered. Bosch has a confusing array of cycles and options, ranging from 4 cycles/4 options on the 300 series, up to 6 cycles/6 options on the some 800 series models, but more remarkably the names and types of cycles vary, representing a dozens of various combinations from 10 various possible cycles and 8 various possible options! In other words, my six cycles aren't the same as your six cusing on the 800 series, the differences are mostly whether the model has a built in water softener, or whether it has the Eco Cycle, or the Additional Shine or SpeedPerfect options. I chose the SHX68TL5UC because it does NOT have a water softener (which I don't need), and because it had both the Additional Shine and SpeedPerfect options. Explanations:ECO CYCLE saves energy by running at a lower temperature. Works fine for lightly soiled loads. Doesn't dry as well.EXTRA SHINE OPTION makes the final rinse hotter and extends the drying cycle. This helps create up for the lack of an American-style exposed heating element, but it extends load time and uses more energy.SPEEDPERFECT speeds things up by heating the water more and using more water. It also uses more eping the SpeedPerfect, ExtraShine, and Sanitize options on basically turbocharges your Bosch, but kills the energy efficiency.If all this seems confusing, one thing I like about the Bosch is that it remembers your latest settings and makes that the default for your next load. So you just hit START and it'll do the same options as latest TE: If you like your dishes to come out piping hot and bone dry, like American models, you can obtain this easily with the Bosch. Just obtain this model or any of the others that have the Additional Shine and Sanitize options. When you set up your dishwasher, follow the user manual to turn on "Intensive Drying" (see #6 below) then to give it an additional boost you can run the dishwasher with the Additional Shine and Sanitize options. Your dishes will be bone dry and piping hot, and if you add the SpeedPerfect option as well, your normal cycle will still be well under 2 hours. I used the Additional Shine option a lot initially, but have realized that my dishes obtain perfectly dry without using it.WHAT DON'T WE LIKE ABOUT THE BOSCH?1) It's not intuitive at first. You shouldn't have to read a manual to use a dishwasher, but you definitely need a guide if you wish your Bosch to do a amazing job. It's certainly needed to understand what all the cycle options are; but it's also things like the middle rack -- when loading, if you don't [email protected]#$%! all the method in until it clicks, then the hose won't attach and the middle spray arm won't effectively distribute the water during the cycle. So you definitely can't use the door to push the racks in, and you have to explain that to anybody who's going to use your dishwasher.2) No CANCEL button. If you begin a cycle and wish to cancel it, my old KitchenAid had a CANCEL button. On the Bosch, there is none. Lacking such a button, the intuitive thing to do is to hit the ON/OFF button to turn the whole dishwasher off, then begin over; but doing that DOESN'T cancel the cycle. You have to keep the START button down for 3 seconds, then close the door, then wait about a minute. NOT intuitive.3) Rinse Aid dispenser. It's small, and it's hard to see when it's full, which leads to spilling (KitchenAid has a clear fill level indicator).4) Touch buttons. I figured it out finally, and they are slick, but you have to explain to others that you press right in the center of the button, and don't use pressure.5) Those massive duty Duo-Flex silverware baskets that I loved? They are narrower than the KitchenAid silverware baskets, so long stuff like tongs or slotted spoons or ladles stand up straight and are therefore too tall -- they HAVE TO go in the top rack. [UPDATE: As solid as those baskets are, we stopped using them because EVERYTHING fits in the top 3rd rack, and taking them out cleared even more zone for pots and pans in the bottom rack.]6) Cryptic configuration menus. You can customize a lot of things about your Bosch dishwasher, but don't lose that owner's manual, because it's hopeless otherwise. Here, for example, are the instructions for turning on "Intensive Drying"; (boosts the heat for better drying results): 1) Press the [On/Off] button. 2) Keep down the “A” button (which is the “Normal” button on this model). Press [Start] until the display indicates “d:00”. 3) Release both buttons. 4) Press the “A” button until the display shows “d:00”. 5) Press the “C” button (which is the RINSE button on this model) to turn intensive drying on or off: “d:01” = ON and “d:00” = OFF. 6) Press [Start] to save setting. To be fair, you should only have to customize these things once.With any dishwasher, one of the wild cards is whether your dishes fit. If you have thick American stoneware, or really wide glasses and mugs, then they might fit better in an American dishwasher. If you're concerned, grab a few placesettings and head to the local appliance shop to create sure they fit.
Worked through the manual trying to figure out why the dishes and tub are still wet after (any) cycle is complete. Tried all the forum tricks to, nothing worked. Had a Miele dishwasher in the past and used Miele or Somat rinse agent with no problem. Switch from Finish rinse agent and that seems to be doing the trick, so far. Fingers crossed.
What a piece of junk! We bought 2 Bosch dishwashers for our fresh house build, this 800 series and a 300 series. The 300 is an awesome machine which we absolutely love, but this machine at almost twice the price is apathetic pile of useless scrap S: NoneCONS: Non-tactile feedback controls work only occasionally - requires hard banging on the begin button to obtain it to answer at all Cycles sometimes stop for no apparent reason halfway through Dishes are soaking wet after any selected cycle If you begin machine after starting, it will not begin until a significant recycle period transpires Completely non-adjustable slideout racks and worst of all........ Dishes come out dirty after even the most aggressive cycleAll calls to Bosch service were completely ignored. They did everything to avoid acknowledging we even purchased the machine!!!!!!! I have never felt so ripped off after the purchase of a major item. Worst purchase I have ever ame on you Bosch!!!
The BRAND NEW Bosch dishwasher I bought would not dissolve the detergent pod. Technician said it required a fresh motor! He recommended getting a fresh one, so I did through Best Buy. I have been trying to obtain CyberSales to pick up the lemon for over a week. They hold putting me off - and hold trying to obtain me to fix something that shouldn't have to be fixed in the first place. I am extremely frustrated.
We purchased a Bosch Dishwasher with a built-in Salt Generator, to replace our 10 year old Miele Dishwasher which also had a Salt Generator. The Miele Dishwasher was getting blocked by our very hard water, that is the only reason for the change. Both dishwashers are quiet and do a super job of cleaning dishes. The fresh Bosch Dishwasher has the same 3rd tray for silverware, an item we liked in the Miele Dishwasher.
The dishwasher cleans dishes, kitchenware and utensils to a brilliant shine. It is so quiet when it washes, the best of knowing it is on is by the red light it shines on the floor! The touch sensitive controls are simple to use. The significant negatives in the online reviews I read were about the lack of proper drying. I have not had this problem, but I have used the "Extra Dry" button when I use the dishwasher and the cups, dishes and utensils have all come out dry.
This is a premium product that has worked without fault so far. It's expensive, but you need to decide what point in the price/quality continuum you wish to operate.
We bought this dishwasher because of the high ratings for Bosch and I liked that the filter was easily accessible and could be cleaned by hand. There was nothing on this model that was better than the 300 series in our opinion but we paid more because it was supposed to obtain to use quicker than our options in the 300 series. I thought we might obtain a couple of perks for the additional hundreds of dollars. We got less than I expected from the 300 e much advertised quiet running of the dishwasher is greatly exaggerated. You will have no need for the red light that shines on the floor when it is running. If you are close enough to see the red light, you will definitely hear it running. This advertised quietness is the only advertised advantage over the 300 series. Either you can hear a dishwasher or you can't and you can definitely hear this dishwasher. It isn't the loudest I've had, but it sounds slightly louder than the KitchenAid it replaces.I read the manual before purchasing and it is poorly written but seemed to indicate that you would be able to see how much time was remaining on a load as it progressed. The curt customer service rep from Bosch I spoke to after the dishwasher was installed informed me quickly that was not the case. There is beautiful much no point to have the time read out on the controls. It tells you what it estimates the time of the wash will be when you are selecting cycles, but they are just estimates. The default cycle, Auto, and others vary the amount of time washing based upon how dirty the dishes are. So when it tells me it will be 3 hours for the cycle to [email protected]#$%!& might be more. I'll just have to wait and see how dirty it thinks my dishes are that e advantages of Bosch brings have to be measured versus the disadvantages like needing to use Rinse Aid with every wash and dealing with the lack of a heating coil to obtain dishes as dry as beautiful much all other dishwasher brands.Will it obtain dishes clean? Sure. Will another stainless dishwasher that costs less than half as much obtain dishes clean as well? Yes. For the cash this costs I would expect minor upgrades which Bosch easily could have created but chose not to. I'll look elsewhere next time we need a dishwasher.
Purchased at Home Depot: I grew up with and have used Kitchen Aids for decades so I had no idea a dishwasher could perform so poorly. We have to scrub with hot water and soap and create sure there's absolutely nothing left on anything before loading the dishwasher and then we wash a bunch of dishes, and particularly silverware afterwards. It's more like a dish storage device than a something that washes. It is extremely unforgiving (unlike my now fondly remembered Kitchen Aid) of any neglect of the rinse aid. Besides not washing, it also doesn't dry leaving prodigious amounts of water everywhere...we should be growing some amazing mold soon. It is not whisper quiet....during some parts of the cycle I'm up checking the door, certain that the UPS truck just drove up or an airplane went by at low altitude. The electronic settings are absurd and easily mistakenly set, just by wiping off the top edge of the door. The red light on the floor is fun but not worth the cost of this thing. Trying to search out how much time is left on a cycle is futile and we're afraid of opening it mid-cycle because we often just have to begin it over. Finally, regular size tumblers do not fit so we have to place them on the very bottom shelf so that they're not knocked over. Here I thought I was getting an upgrade--a Bosch!--when a much more modestly priced Kitchen Aid actually washes and dries and doesn't require pre-washed dishes. Irritating and disappointing.
Just got one installed and replaced an older Bosch.- It is so silent you have to look for the red light on the floor to know it is on.- Huge glasses fit on the top basket, you just need to adjust the silverware rack on top higher. Lots of room. The size is standard for all dishwashers these days.- The Bosch fits in a small tighter hole. I have wood floors and a piece of plywood kept the floor level to the slab under the counter.- The air dry does great.- Create sure the drain line under the sink has a high loop above the garbage disposal drain line. This will prevent the drain water from siphoning back. Also 90 percent of dishwashers not draining is because the dishwasher drain line to the garbage disposal gets clogged by dirty sludge over the years. I even had a sliced almond block the vent on the sink once.- the manual is beautiful amazing on the instructions. To stop the washer early just keep down the begin button until 01 is displayed, close the door, allow it drain for a minute. Press the off button. Then begin over.
I have had this dishwasher for 1 month now. I agree with some of the comments above. The tines are not spaced well so the plates and bowls sit too closely to one another therefore they don't clean well. One of it's selling features that caught my eye is that you don't have to rinse your dishes. Well that's all amazing and well but the dishwasher smells horrible when you begin the door if you haven't rinsed the dishes. Also this dishwasher doesn't keep near as a lot of dishes as my previous Whirlpool that was less expensive. My largest frustration with this dishwasher is that it takes hours of reading the manual to learn how to properly use it and to change settings that you may not want. . I have spent nearly an hour on the phone with the technician who was not even able to support me turn the buzzer sound off. After trying myself for almost another hour it finally worked. It's just method too complicated to use. Also the manual and the technician had various methods of using the settings. They need to modernize their user manual. Also if you don't rinse the dishes they will clean amazing but only if on the bottom shelf. It doesn't work for the two upper shelves. My tip is to go with a cheaper Whirlpool dishwasher. They work amazing and method easier to use.
Very Very QuietOur fresh Bosch dishwasher is AMAZINGLY quiet. Another awesome thing about Bosch is that, should you have a question or problem, and call them, you only go through 1 electronic menu and then you speak to a Human being!! Imagine that! A company you can call where you actually obtain to talk to someone!! Most companies these days (i.e. LG or ATT) force you to go through layer after layer of electronic messages. Their notice is clear - WE DON'T WANT TO TALK TO OUR CUSTOMERS! In the current electronic globe Bosch is like an island in the sun. For that alone, I will forever be a dedicated Bosch enthusiast. So why didn't I read this unit 5 stars? Well it seems to have a issue drying - most loads need to be touched up by hand - not a huge deal but it could be a nuisance to some. Otherwise the unit is 5 stars all the way! (footnote: sadly Bosch refused to publish this review on their website which indicates that they are not entirely honest with the reviews they post! hmmmmm. )
We upgraded to this unit from an ancient and cheap Roper dishwasher only because our local Sears was going out of business and we got this on a discount. Even with the discount I'm disappointed.Right off the bat I was worried the 3rd rack would be a waste and I was totally right. It's too shallow to place anything worthwhile inside it and I've yet to pull something out of there and have it be clean. My solution? I took it out. This allowed me to move the center rack to its highest position and still fit tall glasses, leaving more room for bigger things on the bottom rack. Major improvement.I also don't like that the silverware holder can't be place in the front of the bottom rack. I used to be able to quickly pop begin the door to add a fork, but not with this washer. You have to drop the door all the method down and pull the bottom rack out to access it. Boo.I thought the folding tines would be helpful--it doesn't create any difference. Marketing gimmick at best.Putting a glass in the far corners of the bottom rack will disappoint you. It will come out dirty on the inside like it was never in there in the first place. This wasn't a issue with my 's quiet--which is great--but combine that with finicky controls and it'll frustrate you. Several times I've thought I've started a wash cycle only to come back and begin it only to search it cold, empty, not running, and that insipid display blinking at me. Oh, and that display? You can't see it with the door closed. So why bother with a timer display? Totally useless unless you wish to begin the door during the cycle to see the time and obtain water sprayed all general the user interface is a pain. The "buttons" need to be pressed hard to create a selection. And I don't trust it will do what it says it .. comparing my 20 year old Roper to this thing SHOULD be like comparing a 1998 Ford Escort to a 2019 BMW.... and the Escort holds its own quite nicely. I'd hold the Bosch for the quietness and lack of rusted tines, nothing more. Not worth the price, even with 35% off. Not satisfied with this purchase at all.
This is the model I am using right now. I fume every time I test to load it! They have SHRUNK INSIDE OF MACHINE to where you can’t even fit a glass in one row on top rack, so they NEVER STAND ON END, instead they constantly FALL OVER. The lower rack is SO TIGHT, AND THE TINES SO CLOSE TOGETHER the dishes do not rinse entirely well anymore, and you cannot FIT the dishes in without them overlapping each other now!!! What a BAD DECISION they created to SHRINK THE MACHINES TO CUT COSTS! Just charge me an additional $100 and create it a NORMAL SIZE AGAIN!!!!Also, like others, the soap does not breakdown properly, I have to rinse my glasses, post dishwashing, to obtain the sticky residual off them!!!Did I mention that if you place a spatula (or any long handle utensil) in bottoms silverware basket, if it’s too long you cannot close the top rack, or it barely fits in the silverware basket because there’s only room enough for only 2-3 pieces per segment, as they have SHRUNK THAT TOO!!! SAVE YOURSELF THE MONEY AND AGGREVATION, AND FIX YOUR OLD ONE IF YOU CAN.
OK, we got this installed today. So far, so amazing - it is indeed very quiet. But there are two things we want we knew before we purchased - 1) the correct power cable for the US is not included in the pack and the installer charged us an additional $45 for the correct one and 2) the custom panel from our old dishwasher does not fit and will need to be chop to fit this Bosch. Again - don't assume this will be a easy install and that your old cabinetry will fit.
Bought this from Best Buy 4-6 months ago. Got it because our previous dishwasher was as loud as a chain saw. Maybe we neglected to tell the Gainesville Best Buy sales manager that we also wanted clean dishes! It's quiet for sure, in fact so quiet you hardly know it's running. Coincidentally, when you go to pull out the "clean" dishes, you also have to wonder if it was ever running since they have small pieces of crud on them. Including the glasses we use for drinking. We've had a technician come out, he couldn't search anything obviously wrong. Now after using specific soap/rinse aid as recommended by servicer, dishes remain dirty after wash cycle. We are expecting Bosch to arrange for another service, maybe they'll agree to exchange but we sure hope they will let us to keep our cash back. If so I will amend my review to reflect them working with us on this. Oct 13 update: a Bosch certified technician cane out and re-examined the machine. He found clogged jets in the upper sprayer. This was due to the need to properly close the top tray into a receptacle or meal particles will backwash into mechanism. There do not appear to be specific directions for this procedure in owners manual amd the door can be closed w/o fully seating the upper tray. Also, he set the hot water to a higher setting in machine to support break up meal particles better. Now the machine works well.
Perfect product, very very quiet. Cleans very well. We have two of these and each of our kids have Bosch Dishwashers. We all have the same opinion. This is a 5 star product.
I had this professionally installed a few weeks ago and it works like a charm. It is relatively quiet and cleans dishes really well. I have nothing negative to say about it. I hope it lasts well!
Bought this from the huge box shop after reading dishwasher reviews ad nauseam. I like the look, performance reviews, scooped handle/hidden controls, third shelf and most importantly - the quietness. Got a amazing deal that included free delivery and installation. Date arrived and when the delivery guys showed up, never took it off the truck, immediately took a look at our old dishwasher, the zone it would be going and proceeded to tell us that we were hooked up for dishwashers that have the pipes and water supply coming from underneath the unit; Bosch hooks up on the backside. That was enough that they told us we would have to call the shop again to solve the issue and they promptly left. I would have assumed that the unit could be adapted to fit, was even willing to support them out as I like to take care of issues around the house myself. But they simply said it wouldn't work, all Bosch's have a closed bottom (which results in the quietness) and that I would have to obtain a model that hooks up on the bottom.I went to the shop and spoke with the salesman in the huge appliance dept. Despite his (supposed) 20+ years selling dishwashers, he had no idea what I was talking about with regards to a closed bottom dishwasher versus a begin bottom dishwasher. Also said for huge appliances, I should never buy online because "you don't know what you're getting."Well long story short, after doing some fast research online, I found out Kitchenaid makes the type of dishwasher I required and fortunately when I went back to the shop to create an exchange, I found a better salesperson who knew what they were talking about and helped fix the problem. Was even able to search a Kitchenaid model with just as amazing reviews, same price and even free delivery/installation.
The challenge with reviews on websites like this... if you read a lot of you will search that people tend to review a product when it's fresh and when their experience is new with the product. it's not surprising they love the product as they probably did some research and chose a product that appealed to them. I love to search reviews where people share their experience later in the product life and that's what I'm doing here. I've had this Bosh for about 5 years. It is quiet, cleans, still runs. It does not exceed my expectations here nor does it fail them. I give it only two stars because it has started to leak. It does this inconsistently but with greater frequency than before. It's starting to ruin my wood floors too so time for a fresh one. I don't know about you but I think a product like a dishwasher, any brand, should latest longer than five years; especially one that sells itself as above contractor grade . It's frustrating because in my younger days I've owned less expensive brands and they all lasted a lot of years longer before any problems. I have to ask myself, would a less expensive Sears, LG or other brand of dishwasher have done any worse? Maybe, maybe not, but if you believe Bosh marketing their product is better. That's difficult to believe.
This is my second BOSCH dishwasher. I bought this same one for my old house 12 years ago and loved it. The old one was also very quiet but you heard enough to know that it was running. Apparently Bosch has taken it to a totally various level with this model. It's got even more room inside, cleans exceptionally well, is more energy effecient and like I said, I can't hear it AT ALL!!! ALL THUMBS UP!!! The only method to tell if its working is by a small red light under the bottom of the door on the right side. If you swipe your foot under it you will see a red beam on your foot or on the floor if your kitchen isn't too bright.
So I hate assigning this rating to this dishwasher. Once its actually working, I am sure I will change my mind. However in my case shipping of this product was problematic. I actually got three shipping dates, depending on where I was in the process - there were no reasons given for this so I ended up getting the product almost 3 weeks after i purchased it. I actually did contact the shipping company on the third time and got a BS response as to why the date got delayed again. Secondly, once I installed it, it appears to be a dud aka it does not work, won't do dishes and all it does is cycle the water pump. So I called the company for warrantee service and have not been able to use the device. To create things more challenging, since I live in a rural environment, I have to work with a 3rd party and schedule an appointment for them to come out and fix the system. While I understand not having people around who can fix this in all locations of the US, its a bit surprising that I need to create those calls to the third party and set up an appointment to obtain this looked at. You may wonder what I had before? Well, 9 months ago I purchase the previous model to this dishwasher and it was awesome, no problems - however then we had the 1000 year flood and it was the only appliance that got damaged. Since the warrantee does not cover flood hurt - quite understandable - I took it to obtain repaired on my dime and come to search out you can't obtain parts for it any longer. In fact, my 8-month old dishwasher has been end-of-liffed and can't be repaired. I am getting less and less excited about this amazing dishwasher due to logistical missteps by Bosch - a bit sad. So now i am working to set up an appointment in two weeks to obtain someone to look at the dishwasher and test to figure out why i have a dud and hopefully fix it.
This dishwasher is amazing. We are a family of 7, and it holds all of our dishes for an entire day. I used to have to run my latest dishwasher twice a day. The increased load-ability of this dishwasher allows me to fit enough dishes to run it only once a day. I don't pre-rinse the dishes, I just scrape the meal off and place them in. They come out spotless every time. Even dried egg residue and peanut butter disappears. I've never seen anything like it. It is truly a time saver! And it is whisper quiet. My refrigerator makes more noise than this dishwasher.
We have the earlier ver of this machine. In the 3 years we've owned it, it has broken EVERY YEAR. Each failure requires someone to take a day off of work to meet the repairman, then another day off work when they come back with the part. The machine is flimsy; the wheels consistently fall off the dish rack, and the bottom rack comes of track beautiful much every time you use it. It does not clean well on "Normal" or "Auto," you have to run it on "Heavy". The "Heavy" cycle takes 2 hours. On the up side, it is very quiet and uses less water than out old dishwasher.
Item was delivered quick and friendly. Installation was simple for my husband, only took a couple hours. We want the seller would have better explained what adapters would be required so we could have on hand, but all in an simple installation. My dishes have never sparkled like this before. Seems like there is so much additional room for dishes that my old dishwasher didn't have. I am very happy with this product and would recommend to anyone!
We have it for 7 months and the blue spray handle inside broke and melted on the heating coil. doesn’t dry; therefore creates a smell after couple of days. They are sending a tech to check it out
Cheap product. Control panel went a small more then a year after purchase; would have cost as much as I paid for the unit to repair it. So kicked it to the curb and just bought a fresh unit from a more highly rated manufacturer. FRIGIDAIRE did nothing to remedy the situation. They dont stand behind their products. I'm done with them!
Mine broke true quick I would never buy this brand again it’s nothing but junk stupid me bought 2 of them and after 3 years got to obtain a fresh oneSave your cash and time obtain something better
I have only used this a handful of times so far. It's just 2 of us most of the time so a dishwasher doesn't obtain used daily in my house, I hand wash most of the time. But when I wish to sanitize or just being lazy I will use this. This is an extremely quite dushwasher, I sometimes forget it is running. It seems to clean very well but I have not been impressed with the drying capability, even after a full day has passed I still have to towel dry a lot of it. That is why I only gave it 4 stars, if it dried better it would have received a 5 star review. I do not like the silverware caddy in the rack because it takes up zone that can be used for larger stuff but, I can't search a dishwasher anymore that has in door utensil caddy. I do love the 3rd rack for larger utensils such as serving spoons, spatulas, etc.
What a waste of money!!! This dishwasher along with all the other matching appliances suck. Particularly this one does not wish to turn on half the time, the soap dispenser has not wanted to open, half washes stuff at time even though I clean them all the method prior to even putting them in dishwasher, and now the touch panel does not wish to sense anything... all within a month of purchasing! Ridiculous!
We have an Icon Electrolux dishwasher and since day one it has been a disaster. The machine will stop in the midde of the cycle and stay there. We had this machine services 12 or 13 times and the effect is ZERO. The company does not wish to replace the machine. I had talked to multiple supervisors without success. Moreover, there is absolutely no method you can leave a negative feedback on the Electrolux web page, I tried and the feedback was not accepted. In summary, I will never buy this brand again!
This washer is prone to electrical problems and the control boards shorts out. It also has issues during the cycle sometimes. It has just completely quit on us and I'm on amazon looking for replacements. On the plus side it's even more quiet than it was since it doesn't work at all.
We absolutely love this dishwasher. It's amazingly quiet, and does a terrific job cleaning. One review had said that it was not quiet. When it is being installed, there is a foam/fabric blanket that fits around it. Do not allow your installer remove that. It is the sound dampening material that makes it quiet. We love the fresh 3rd rack, and the tines that create the dishes stand up are perfect. We have both thin and very thick porcelain dishes. All fit perfectly. I took a small time setting my preferences, e.g., you can choose to hear a loud/med/quiet/no ring when the wash cycle is complete; you can choose to have a light/no light shine on the floor when the wash cycle is going; you can choose to have the dishwasher power off/stay on/power off after 1 minute after the wash cycle; you can choose/not choose the intensive drying feature; you tell it how much rinse aid to use (7 settings from a lot to none). There are settings to adjust depending on how hard/soft your water is, to give you excellent results. The cycle options are: heavy; auto; eco; normal; speed60; and rinse only. In addition, you can choose: delay; half load; delicate; sanitize; additional dry; and additional scrub.We love it, and we couldn't be happier. The dishes come out perfectly clean, and my jr. high children who load the dishwasher aren't rinsing the dishes like I would. They scrape meal into the trash, but aren't scrubbing. You have to place your ear to the outside front of the dishwasher to hear any sound at all. We like having the little red light that shines on the floor. It tells us when the dishwasher is on. Otherwise, we would not be able to tell. Love it.
I did lots of research on dishwashers, and most sources said Bosch was the best, including the 800 series. It looks amazing with the panel, but I would never buy a Bosch again. As I'm writing this the sound is registering at 70-72 db from 10 feet away, so it's not quiet. It also doesn't rinse well, and is very finicky about detergents. We have hard water, but that shouldn't be an excuse. Huge bummer.
So, I did not buy this on Amazon. Decided that I wanted a local shop so any issues would be simple to handle or return. Consumer Reports had this listed as highly rate. My brother also owns an older Bosch but very similiar and has had amazing results and no problems. I am very satisfied with my purchase!I agree that the tines are a bit close together but my dishes do fit. Besides, each row can fold down if needed. In fact beautiful much all racks and rows of tines are adjustable every which way. I love the 3rd shelf for silverware; the silverware baskets that that came with the it are in my pantry (don’t need them). I was concerned about washing ability due to some of the reviews. But like I said my brother’s Bosch works great. VERY IMPORTANT - read the instructions!! You need to use amazing dish detergent (I use Costco’s packets) with a liquid rinse aid. Create sure your hot water is hot enough and run the kitchen facet before starting a load. The salesman said all the seating I need is “Auto” + “Sanitize”. He was not, I repeat, do not rinse your dishes. Doing this will give really not good results. The dishwasher has a dirt sensor and rinsed dishes will create it think the dishes are not dirty and not clean long. Also, the detergent has enzymes that require meal to activate. Just scrape off the food. That is all you really need to do. The water jets in the bottom are beautiful strong and can easily flip anything little and light like a plastic 1 cup container. Use the middle rack for astic do not come out totally dry but everything else does. Just the nature of the beast as plastic does not retain heat well and this effects drying. I run a load and allow the door begin for a while. Oh, and it take about 2.5 hours to do a load. Not satisfied about that as my old one took about 70 minutes. Also, you have to manually clean the meal filter. Not a huge deal as this is required in my case bout once a is model can keep a lot of dishes. My service for 10 is in and the dishwasher is only half full. Six months of constant use and no issues. All told I am satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this model.
We bought this dishwasher to replace a 20-year-old Bosch. We were so sad when our old dishwasher died, and were dreading the replacement process. I was shocked when I read the negative reviews on Amazon for the Bosch dishwashers available. Thankfully I wasn’t deterred, and I sought out comments and reviews on the Bosch website. Not only were there hundreds of reviews but they were overwhelmingly positive. As expected with Bosch, this dishwasher runs super quiet and does an perfect job of cleaning dishes. It’s dish-area size is comparable to the old 20-year-old dishwasher, and actually the third row provides a nice put for little storage containers, lids, or utensils. It does an perfect job of drying dishes without streaks or spots. We ultimately purchased this specific model because of its low water usage and energy star rating. This is the biggest (sizewise) item I’ve purchased through Amazon, and the delivery was a fun learning process. Amazon provided amazing instructions for delivery, and we got it much faster than I expected (about 7-10 days).
DO NOT buy a Bosch, my Bosch series 500 dishwasher developed an E:009 error shortly after warranty was up. This is a dishwasher that is in a condo that is lived in about ½ a year and is used only by a single man. Total usage about 1 year, twice a week. I looked up the code and it was either a heat pump or the computer. I called Bosch and told them exactly that. They said they had to send a tech for further diagnosis. The tech came to my house, looked at the Error code and said it was the heat pump or the computer. It took him 2 min, he did exactly what I did and then he tried to charge me $130.00 for the diagnosis. This is the Bosch standard; they will extort the $130.00 from their customers before they will even help. I refused to pay it and they are now holding my dishwasher hostage until I pay (meaning they won't fix it). Oh yes... and labor is $40 every 15 min. But they will not tell you how long it will take to repair, they told me "Depends on the tech". I WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER BOSCH, nor will my friends, or their friends, or anyone else that will listen.
The machine is very efficient, cleans very well and is very quiet. I particularly like the top pullout drawer for stuff like tongs, spatulas and other flat tools. My previous machine was a Bosch and I would buy another or recommend the same to anyone.
The unit was delivered 2 weeks late and was defective. We had it professionally installed, and then had to incur more cost when it would not drain after 2 wash cycles. We have owned two previous Bosch dishwashers, and never had a issue before. Navigating the return was also a nightmare. Three words of advice... do not purchase!
Bought this 7 months ago and I have never had a better dishwasher! Super quiet - the only method we know it's running is the red light that shines out the bottom while it's on. I've place in baking pans, pots (with some beautiful seriously baked on food), after rinsing them enough to obtain the huge chunks off, and they almost always come out spotless. I can literally count on one hand the number of times I've had to re-wash something, and it's usually been something I've had to take a scrubber to.I've learned to avoid putting light cups / bowls on the bottom rack because the water pressure is high enough that it turns them over and fills them with water..I"ve read some users complain about this not drying dishes well. We usually run ours overnight and they're beautiful much dry enough by the next morning to place right in the cabinet. One other thought - I bought this to WASH the dishes. I would much rather take a few additional mins drying some clean dishes than have to rewash several dishes after each ns - I want this had a visible time-remaining display, and the stainless-steel could be a bit more fingerprint resistant. Not enough to ding a star though.
Had it for 2 weeks. The other reviews are people who did not read the directions. It requires jet dry or a rinse aid. Its dead quite and my dishes haven't been this clean in years
Picked ours up at Lowe's for $804 (sale). Simple to install but needed a water connection elbow. Back to Lowes. Aside from that the electrical connector hub is simple to work with and a very amazing idea. This replaced a GE dishwasher that was 11 years old and extremely inefficient. Even using the 30 min setting this unit cleans some of the toughest caked on food. We use Finish tabs and Jet Dry but always have. We love this dishwasher, it's very quite and does a amazing job.
Bought this dishwasher 8 months ago. We have to clean the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, various than what the directions say. If there is any speck of meal left on the dishes it doesn't clean it just dries the specks of meal on plates or glasses. Super disappointing considering this is the more expensive option for a dishwasher. The only positive is, it is very quiet.
Latest Bosch had printed panel - numbers wore off - replacement panel @#$%!180.00 plus labor. (Bad design by all dishwasher Mfgs who use hidden panels with printed start, cycles etc. After 2 or 3 years the numbers ware off and you cannot see where you should press for what). Bought this one as it has exposed or elevated manual buttons to “press in” - issue solvedDoor springs broke on this same previously owned Bosch model as well (must be cheap Chinese spring steel) the door is massive - became safety risk for little dog and shins. Please Bosch - no Chinese parts like GE, Whirlpool is unit is silent -our kitchen and living room are attached and have to listen to see that it is running. Pound for pound, I think Bosch is the best.
This is the very best dishwasher I have ever owned! Number one is that I don't have to bend method down to the floor to load it. Since it is only the two of us, we mainly use the upper drawer, and only if we have guests do we use both. The dishwasher cleans the dishes beautifully and we only use the economy setting. Yes the top mugs may be a small wet, but I have never had a dishwasher dry the small dimples in the bottom outside of the mug. I moved and of course the fresh dishwasher is a standard dishwasher and yes I can load a lot more in it, but this just means I have to save up a lot of dirty dishes before I can run it. Don't tell my wife, but I can't wait for it to break, as I wish to obtain a fresh one soon. She hates the regular dishwasher too, but says we have to wait until it my former home where I had the Fisher & Paykel, we had it over18 years and it was still going without a repair! The fresh owners love it, as a matter of fact, the true estate agent thought we didn't have a dishwasher. She thought they were warming drawers, LOL. The Fisher & Paykel were amazing dishwashers and I can't wait to obtain a fresh one, when this "inconvenient" dishwasher expires.
I did not purchase this through Amazon, but where I did purchase it there is no put to review. I bought it for the double drawer because it is easier on my back and I had spine surgery. That part is fine, although it is hard to load due to the configuration. You can't really place much in the top drawer and that is all I ter fighting with it, trying to search just the right cycle, it turns out there are limited choices. You can sanitize, but not dry longer. The reason it does not really dry is there is NO heating element. To "dry" it has a little fan that goes and goes and goes…and still doesn't dry. It tries to heat the water when it sanitizes, but it doesn't really obtain any hotter than the water that comes out of the water is is an expensive machine with limited choices on washing. Created in Fresh Zealand which is probably why it is so expensive. Definitely NOT worth the money. The drawer would be amazing if you could actually load it properly. Amazing for my back. To obtain the dishes dry I have to begin the drawer before I go to bed and pray the dishes air dry before I obtain up…otherwise, back to the old fashion method of drying with a dish towel. I did not spend this kind of cash on a machine where I have to be the one to dry the dishes.I would turn this machine in for my old one in a skinny minute.I tried to search another rating I thought I submitted, but could not.
I love this thing. I was skeptical as hell, to be honest. But because my kitchen could not take a normal dishwasher with an extended door, I got the Fisher Paykel. I have been more than pleasantly surprised. It's quiet. It does a amazing job cleaning dishes. It's strangely fun to use. I fully recommend caveat, however. This dishwasher had TWO drawers. My house has only two people living in it. My girlfriend and I haven't used the second drawer since we first got the dishwasher. If we had three people or more living in my home, I would say that we'd use the second drawer more (as in at all). There is a single drawer model, so if your home isn't crawling with dish-users, consider going the single-drawer route.
We owned this product and is SUCKED. Always breaking down. Only Fisher Paykel can service it and the are outrageously expensive. Most recently we had a tech spend almost a month trying to fix our dishwasher. He was finally successful and we paid almost $400 in parts and labor. 3 weeks later it stopped working again. Fisher and Paykel help squad including Matthew Bridgeman the service manager (who took a week to obtain back to me) said they cannot refund because the parts were already installed. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM FISHER AND PAYKEL!
The machine is a huge improvement over previous models but the controls are not intuitive and the machine seems to obtain into modes that are not recoverable. The spot remover fluid chamber is still in a put that is difficult to fill without wasting a lot of the expensive fluid. The timer mechanism must be enabled whenever the drawer is opened and fresh items is added. They didn’t have to do it that way.
Amazing dishwasher, very quiet and gets things clean. No water spots like my old dishwasher with the built in softener. Love it so far
Fisher & Paykel dishwasher received was defective, not able to begin drawer. Returned to 3rd party supplier, who facilitated scheduled pick up and all worked out well. Total refund received in a timely matter. 5 star rating for Dynamic deals well done.
I love the modern look! It is so quiet, you don’t message it is running. I feel like I am saving water only running a little batch since it’s just me and my husband. If I need more, the second drawer is available. I waited to write my review until I used it, and it cleaned a casserole dish without scrubbing it first. So unless something goes wrong down the line, this was worth the money!
Amazing for a little office but not suitable for a family. It gets clogged all the time. Worst dishwasher I ever used.
After researching dishwashers, I finally decided on Bosch. Looks good. Sleak. Only today was I able to use it. Soooooo quiet that I had to put my ear nearby to see if it was actually working. Results? Well, I'll offload tomorrow morning.

Waist of money, do not even think of purchasing this machine. Dishes will not be clean if you don't use the high temp wash cycle. The heating system sucks. All dishes are still dripping wet. Never have I ever been so disappointed.
this machine is fine. it is quiet and runs quickly. One thing that bothers me is the racks for the dishes. They are not grooved at the bottom to keep larger dishes straight up and so they quite often "flop" over and I have to re-wash some of them
ok guys,it may not have all the bells and whistles but it sure does a darn amazing job cleaning the dishes. it runs a small loud but who cares! look people it looks amazing does a nice job cleaning. SAVE MONEY AND GO WITH ITI DID HAPPY AS CAN BEgood luck!
Bought this for the wife as a surprise to replace our 20-year-old Maytag. The surprise was on me. Installed it and I can't say enough poor things about this machine. I and my wife would rather have the old one back. This thing is so poorly designed you can't imagine. Doesn't clean the dishes at all. The rack for the silverware has no put to hang it, just flops around in there. Doesn't have amazing dish placement. It is Awful!
I could be wrong, but I think this thing is only for show. The flippers who sold us our house place it in. It certainly acts like it's washing dishes -- fills with water, sloshes it around, drains it out. And the facade is oh-so-stainless, just like people seem to wish these days. It would be nice if it actually washed dishes though.If you're reading this, it's not because you're thinking of buying one. It's because you're curious as to what other people thought of this useless thing that came with your home. There's no method they sell these to actual customers. It's in that unique part of the shop labeled "crap that you can place in that house you're selling so that people will be excited they're getting fresh appliances, even though they'd be better off with nothing at all."As for being efficient, yes, it uses no energy and water at all, because you've given up on trying to use it at all. Unfortunately, washing dishes by hand uses a shedload of water.If you're looking to sell a house and wish to place something slightly shiny in it, and you are a horrible person, then I recommend this product for you.
This product is awful. It is called a dishwasher, but it does not wash dishes. It came with my house, and after 2 months, DISHWASHER was my job title, not this useless box's job title. I use it as an auto-draining dish rack to air dry my dishes after *I* wash them. Or after my girlfriend washes them - also washing dishes makes her angry.
