    The quietness is the best feature

    This dishwasher is incredibly quiet. You can barely hear it even when you're standing right next to it. Our living room and TV room are adjacent to the kitchen and dishwasher noise is a hassle when you're trying to watch a movie or have a conversation with friends. This dishwasher completely solves that issue. We also like the hidden controls, which give it a very clean look. In terms of negatives, I don't think the rack design is that great. The bottom rack is designed to be filled completely with plates, so there aren't really good spots for pans or serving bowls, or other bulky items. Other dishwashers accommodate this by leaving some space at the edge of the rack, rather than running the tines all the way to the edge. Also the way the tines are angled back, the plates all lay back and are very close together, so sometimes they don't get completely clean. The other negative is that it cleans better with the detergent tablets, which of course are more expensive, than with regular powdered dishwasher detergent. With the tablets everything gets clean on "auto" cycle, which uses less water, but you're spending more money on the tablets. With powdered detergent we have to run it on "heavy" cycle to get everything clean. Overall, I took off one star for the negatives but the quietness is such a huge plus that I'm willing to live with the negatives. Pros: Quietness, clean design Cons: Rack design, doesn't clean as well with powdered detergent

    Our first Bosch, I like it so far. I spent hours researching dishwashers and then at least 2 hours comparing them in the store. It came down to the Bosch and Kitchen Aid. The third rack and the setup of the lower racks are what sold me. Bosch was the only one that had racks that lay down to give more room for larger items. I purchased the 800 series first, I did not like the touch sensor control's as they would not respond with the first easy touch at times. On the second day the controls would not work, Bosch did the troubleshooting over the phone and found it to be defective.I returned it and exchanged it for the 500 series. As it has the control buttons that you actually push and has same system as the 800 series. The only 2 things I did not and do not like was the third rack design and the drying system. The third rack only allowed silverware on the 500 series as the 800 series was deep enough for bowls. I checked it at the store before I made the order, the 800 series rack was compatible so I found one and purchased it one online. As for the the drying system, most dishes come out with water standing on them every time. That is why I gave it 4 stars. But they come out crystal clear every time.

    Quiet and Spacious but MUST use Drying Agent!

    We've had our Bosch dishwasher for about a month now. We weren't crazy about it at first because we didn't know that it doesn't perform at its peak without adding a drying agent. Our dishes would come out still soaking wet but once we realized we needed to add the drying agent, it has been a completely different story. Dishes are almost 100% dry even without the Extra Dry Cycle, but adding that cycle gets the job done. It is so incredibly quiet that you will not know it is running if you are in an adjacent room. We have enjoyed this product very much so far

    Dead after two weeks, no help from Bosch

    Posted

    The control display stopped turning on within 2 weeks of installing this unit. Nothing happens when I press the on button and yes, I've checked the fuse box, read the manual, and spent a couple days troubleshooting. I could not reach Bosch service for help for a brand new unit. The help line just puts me on hold for 25 minutes, then hangs up on me. In my area, it cost me $300 to install the new dishwasher, and $200 to uninstall and haul it for return. I learned the hard way that Bosch dishwashers are not reliable and Bosch does not stand behind their product. This lesson cost me $500 and a month with no dishwasher.

    We bought this after our Samsung dishwasher kept breaking down on us. After dealing with Samsung’s terrible customer service for months, we finally got a refund since they realized the unit was defective. We then came across this dishwasher, which was highly recommended by a sales person. It has a utensil rack on top, which makes it convenient for knives and other small items. This dishwasher cleans and steams very well. We’re very happy.

    High volume dIshwasher has three racks. The top shallow rack gives an option for flatware but I prefer the basket on the bottom rack for flatware. My dishwasher does not remove peanut butter from the middle or top racks for some reason. So knives have to go on bottom. The shallow top rack works well for spatulas and the like. The start and pause operations have taken a bit of time to understand. Otherwise it is a good dishwasher.

    Quiet Operation; Perfectly Clean Dishes

    I upgraded from a 13 year-old dishwasher that I thought was relatively quiet. After running this dishwasher for a few weeks, I can safely say that this is the quietest dishwasher I've ever used. I love the layout of both racks - it's super easy to load dishes. The 3rd rack on the top easily fits large pans and serving plates. There is a small red light that shines down on the floor so you know when your dishes are clean and dry. Highly recommended!

    Cleans dishes well and it is, from my perspective, very quiet. The baskets are good and provides flexibility in loading. The cycle is a bit long but not worse than most alternatives. The only improvements I would like is an interior light as the stainless steel interior is a bit dark and it would be appreciated with an indicator light telling the washing cycle is completed.
