Silent dishwasher
Ceceyesum, 02/14/2013
Experience of using: Less than a month

Pros: Cleans well, Easy to install, Design, Doesn't make noise

Cons: Capacity

My husband who doesn't have experience in installation, could install this device within one hour without any problems. I was more than happy to hear how it works because you can hardly hear the sound of water. It's not same spacious as other dishwashers but is sufficient for us. Love sanitize cycle that makes all plates very dry.

Bosch Bosch Bosch
Tigerangeld, 01/30/2013
Experience of using: 1 year or more

Pros: Very quiet, Attractive design, Convenient features

Two years of smooth operation and no claims so far. Brilliant washing with little use of detergent. I don't remember my old washer to have cleaned so well even on the day of purchase. Fell in love with Bosch.

Strange problem
Egreen, 01/06/2013
Experience of using: About 6 months

Pros: Nice exterior design

Cons: Poorly built, Poor customer service

After I purchased this dishwasher, one day controls stopped working and around two weeks I had to wait for Bosch specialists to come. They said the problem was from the door which wasn't closed properly. It works fine now, but I don't understand why they couldn't say that on the phone, so that we could use it instead of waiting so long. Moreover you have to use Finish detergent at all times. No other detergent will clean.

Good quality and price
Eveysout, 12/25/2012
Experience of using: Few months

Pros: Cleans well, Sound level, Reasonable price

Cons: Design flaw, Inefficient racks, Long cycle

I'm satisfied with this washer, though I can point out good and bad sides. If you need a quiet washer, this machine is number one to choose. It has reliable construction and price is not high for Bosch. Racks are inefficient and don't allow full loading. Cycle takes around two hours and there is no way to watch its status.

For every advantage there is a disadvantage
Wagner, 10/27/2012
Experience of using: About 6 months

Pros: Quiet, Good modern design, Good quality of materials inside and outside, Efficient in regards of water, power consumption and detergent

Cons: Bad interior layout, Hard installation, Lack of features

I'm ready for a thorough analysis of "Goods" and "Bads" of this dishwasher. Most people buy dishwashers for replacement so first of all design will be an advantage. Also, it's an extremely quiet unit. Good stainless steel tub and plastic coating for racks. Personally I don't like layout of racks, that is inconvenient and you need time to get used to arrange things inside. There is economy-cycle missing, which I liked so much with my old washer. On the other hand sanitizing feature seems useless and inefficient, just spends extra water for nothing. So I never use it. The more I'm using this washer, the more I'm finding out how to make it more efficient. It's very good value for money.

No Finish, no use
Chris_aly, 10/22/2012
Experience of using: About 6 months

Pros: Quiet, Attractive design

Cons: Doesn't clean, Poor design of upper rack

It says that you have to use Finish for this dishwasher. You must do that because if you don't, it will not clean anything at all. Its only advantage is sound level. Upper rack for cups and glasses is awful as if you put one raw, you can't put another one. I'll be searching for a new and not Bosch dishwasher soon.
