24" Recessed Handle Dishwasher with Stainless Steel Tub
Old DW was a noisy old thing so decided to look for those with good quiet noise ratings and read Bosch were very quiet in general. We had a KA in a previous house and found it did a great job of cleaning and drying but was not quiet enough for the new house due to proximity of kitchen to the family room and bedrooms. Our son has a Kenmore Elite at the house they recently bought and it is very quiet - so we looked at Kenmores, KAs and the Bosch. After a good deal of research, we decided on this model for several reasons - the sloped silverware tray aids in washing and drying, the height adjustable middle tray is helpful for different height items, the adjustable supports in the trays help to add flexibility in supporting different types of dishes, bowls, etc, stainless liner for long life and durability, no exposed handle to stick out from face of cabinet, front facing control panel allows for seeing progress at a glance, large removable utensil bin and it was within our price limit and best buy offered free delivery within 3 days. Honestly, Kenmore and KA both have very comparable machines. Lowes has the same basic model at same price but theirs is a specially modified version that takes swaps out the 60 min cycle with a 30 min cycle. Frankly, we did not feel a 30 min cycle would be useful where this one with 60 min cycle seems much more realistically useful for small loads. Only thing I needed for installation was the water inlet fitting and a section of flexible supply line. The old drain and power cord were re-usable. The height and level adjustments were easy, all done from the front. It fit perfectly into the old space and the under counter tabs fit pretty close to the previous. So far it has performed well. I agree with others who complained of the odor - definitely a musty odor from water used for testing before shipping and/or certain plastic parts. After several uses now, the odor seems to have dissipated. I'd say the extra dry cycle is pretty regularly used - it seems energy conservation may limt the heating power of newer machines - our old KA seemed to heat up much more. But then its not a big deal and probably safer in the long run for plastic utensils. Our old machine did ruin a plastic burger press that said it was dishwasher safe but apparently not safe from those that put out more heat. We have not tried all cycles - the 60 min and auto seem to be working fine for our needs. In general with only the two of us, we run it once a week. Since dishes tend to sit for a while, I tend to rinse them well in the sink first to avoid having stuff dry on and be difficult to wash off. Of course there are times we crank out more dishes and are less fussy about rinsing when we know we will be running it that night. In all occasions so far, it has performed well.
Even quieter than our last Bosch which I replaced after 7.5 years but kept for use in an upstairs apartment if I can fix a water supply issue. Called a repair place, they said it would likely be $500 to fix so I got a new machine.
My only complaint is that Bosch completely changed the back end shape, and the water and power connections. I spent most of a day doing carpentry on the inside back of the cabinet so it would fit, making new holes to route the hoses, and wiring an outlet for the three-prong plug instead of the direct electrical and water connections on the front underside of the old dishwasher.
Wow, dishwashers have changed in 19 years :)
This Bosch is great, more storage and much quieter than our old POC !
A normal cycle takes 2 hrs and 15 minutes.... that's 75 more minutes than our old machine, but they claim it saves water and electricity - we'll take it (if true). We like the control panel on the outside with digital red lights... no guessing if the machine is running because it's soooo darn quite.
We've been running just over a month (25+ washes ?) and do not have any complaints.
Shoutout to BestBuy and their install contractor. We purchased with free delivery and free install and both companies did not disappoint. Free was free, timely delivery/install and haul away of old unit with no mess behind was a pleasure to see !!!
Thanks, we'll definitely do business again w/Best Buy !!!
I got my first Bosch 300 series dishwasher a day before Thanksgiving 2018. It was installed by Best Buy’s Geek Squad. Previously I had a Kenmore dishwasher which lasted without any problems for 18 years. With Sears in bankruptcy I decided to try Bosch, because of its record of reliability and reputation. Since day one however I had a problem with this top rated dishwasher, - a bad chemical odor emitted during the wash cycle. I assumed that after few uses the headache causing odor will disappear, but it did not. It’s a shame that Bosch refuses to admit to this problem. There is no instruction how to get rid of this smell. I had to Google it and follow instructions from other Bosch owners, by placing a cup of white vinegar on upper rack and run on heavy with sanitize cycle every day. It did help as the vinegar neutralized the smell. Then I ran out of the vinegar and the smell was back. I promptly returned the smelly product to the store and bought a good rated Maytag MDB4949SHZ. The delivery guy told me that almost all dishwashers use the same sound insulating material, which is Bitumen (asphalt). Yes, my new Maytag smells too, supposedly it is not toxic.
I am very upset that there was no warning label about this headache causing product.
How is it possible that Consumer Reports gave those products top ratings ? How could there be so many positive reviews and only a small percentage of owners report this smell?
Purchased this dishwasher to replace our loud dishwasher that came with our home (62db GE). I requested only delivery and did my own installation. I did purchase the installation kit but really didn't need anything other than a new water line which I could've bought from a hardware store. Once installed I ran a test rinse run and at first I didn't think it was powered on, that is until I heard the water draining through the air gap to the sink.
The 3rd rack utensil tray is perfect for our larger utensils and have plenty of capacity for our dishes. One thing of note, I did not receive the free junction box that was supposed to be included with the washer but ultimately didn't need it because didn't have a hardwired connection and the supplied power cable was all we needed.
We had to replace a Frigidaire Gallery Dishwasher whose inlet solenoid quit working and hence would not fill. It was the third issue with it so we decided to replace it. Unfortunately it was the week before Christmas and with guests coming we could not afford to be without a dishwasher. The Bosch 300 had the best consumer reviews, met the counter height (23 3/4"), external buttons and delivery/installation date. Unfortunately the installers were useless and we landed up having to install it ourselves. Glad we got the dishwasher kit with the purchase from BB as it was necessary to complete the installation for this model. It is much quieter than the previous dishwasher and clearly displays the time left in the cycle. We like the recessed handle as well. It has three trays, the middle being adjustable so you can fit larger items in the bottom or middle as needed. The top most tray is limited to flat utensils. Anything taller will hit the top sprayer. The strainer is easy to remove and clean when necessary. Installation since had to do it ourselves was not to bad. It does come with a standard NEMA 5-15 plug to Bosch's special socket cord. So if you have an outlet/receptacle under your sink you will not need the Bosch hard wire cord option that is also available from BB. The cycles seem shorter than the Frigidaire. We got it in black which is gloss black which matches the rest of the appliances in the kitchen.

Loved this dishwasher by looks and work stand point
A:AnswerWe have this and don't have any issues with starting it. It's usually 3 buttons: On, Normal, and Start. When it's done, the whole thing turns off for us. So we turn it on at night when we go to bed, and by the morning, it's done and the whole thing is off.
Check your manual because there's a setting to automatically turn it off when done. It's called "Auto Power Off". Hope that helps!
A:AnswerHi there, thank you for your question. Bosch dishwasher’s do not offer a fine china cycle. Several Bosch dishwasher’s do offer a delicate cycle, but this model does not. Please note that using higher temperatures and longer cycle times can damage your fine china and/or glassware.
A:AnswerHi there. Thank you for your question. There are several suggestions. Make certain to use Rinse Aid, always use the Sanitize Option for your Rinse. If you are washing a large amount of plastic items, alternate them with glass to help them dry. Make certain to not block the Condensation Port on the left side of the dishwasher, placing cookie sheets and cutting boards on the other side. Also, don't open the dishwasher door during the drying cycle as this will stop the drying process. You can also refer to the Use and Care Manual to make certain the dishwasher is using the appropriate amount of Rinse Aid during each cycle. If you are still experiencing an issue, please reach out to our Customer Support Team at 1-800-944-2904.
A:AnswerHi Mike. Thank you for your question. Water testing is done in the factory on 100% of our dishwashers. Occasionally water may still appear in dishwasher at purchase which may create an odor. If odor still persists, run the Normal/ Regular cycle until it flushes and interrupt the cycle and place an 8 oz. cup of distilled white vinegar solution on the upper rack and lower rack and then finish the cycle.
