    dish washer installed a month ago, its really easy to load with plenty of space, super quite for first few cycles we even doubt even its working. the only strange this is the door wont lock , so a 3 years old can open the door while dish washer is working need to buy a child luck as well

    No actual drying of the dishes occurs. Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars. Opening the door overnight does dry the dishes, so it is not a deal killer to me.

    This unit has been nothing but a disappointment. The front door is flimsy and flexible, the bottom roller basket falls out of the track often and after two years the until won't drain or reset with all hoses clear. Stay away from this unit!

    Door does not latch due to fatal structural issue

    This washer is very good at washing dishes and is VERY quiet, however there is a fatal flaw that required us to replace the unit. The door latch simply did not work. The door would pop open slightly during cycles, just enough to turn the unit off. Combined with the extremely quiet operation, you never knew if the unit is on or off. Eventually we had to prop the door closed with a chair. With the internal controls we could not tell if the unit was on or off or if a cycle was completed without opening the door. This design flaw may be due to an attempt by Bosch to reduce costs by using a plastic structural frame rather than metal. Bosch customer service was pretty good about resolving the issue. They sent a repairman to install a stiffener bar to address the door latch issue (apparently this was not a unique issue and Bosch had a fix, but it was unsuccessful on our case). After that failed repair attempt, Bosch agreed to replace the unit. We chose to upgrade to a different unit to avoid the same problem. We also chose a unit with controls that are not hidden so we can monitor cycle progress. If this was a car, it would have been recalled. As it is just a dish washer it is up to the consumer to resolve with them.

    Good value, wish controls were not on the top

    For the price this is a solid dishwasher. It does a good job, and is pretty quiet. The main negative is that the buttons and status indicator lights are on the top of the door, so are not visible when the door is closed. That means you do not visually know the status of the washer without opening the door and potentially interrupting a cycle.

    Bought because of the reviews, happy so far. I like the performance and how quiet it is. Not a big fan of not seing the controls without opening the door. Overall I'm happy I purchased it!

    It's fine, but the beeping is unbearable

    It runs fine. The door feels a little flimsy. It beeps incessantly when it completes the cycle, and there doesn't seem to be a way to off the beeping even after spending a fair amount of time Googling, which is beyond annoying if you run it at night before you go to sleep. I bought it because of the Consumer Reports reviews, but it's the second thing I've purchased because of Consumer Reports that has made me raise and eyebrow wondering how legitimate their reviews are.

    Quiet, but a little hard to load

    We've only had this dishwasher for about a week, but so far we're pleased with it. One problem was that the toe plate was too close to the door and came off when the door was opened. Bosch sent us a replacement toe plate with no hassle. It's hard to figure out how to load this dishwasher efficiently -- tines are a little small. Otherwise, it's quiet and gets the job done well.

    Received a “defective unit”

    We thought it was the install was bad as after the installers left after they started a load, when it finished, the door "popped" and wouldn't close. Took a week for them to return and was told "it wasn't the install, it was a defective unit". So we've had it for 3 weeks and not been able to do a load of dishes in it. Still not sure it wasn't the install. Disappointed both in Best Buy, and the company that they contract with to install. Waiting this long is ridiculous.

    We had a very bad experience with a Samsung dishwasher and ended up exchanging it for this one. This dishwasher does an excellent job cleaning, it dries well, and its very quiet. The only thing we hear is the water going in and out. This dishwasher is a miracle compared to what we had before. Consumer reports had it right! As for the features, you have to hold down one button, while pushing another button and balancing the door so it stays open to turn on the drying option and to turn off the sound. They could have made that a little less complicated. Once you set it, its done though.

    Failed in two weeks!

    I read a lot of reviews from online & a major consumer magazine that rated this Bosch dishwasher number 8 out of over 130 tested. Unfortunately, the washer door has failed to latch in just two weeks of use. Beware that Best Buy only has a 15 day return policy! We're now dealing with Bosch on warranty repair. Bosch sent out their recommend service rep. and he stated that the dishwasher is beyond repair. Now they want to send a second tech. rep. to get a second opinion. Ugh. The wife is not happy!

    Cleans well, but otherwise disappointing

    Posted

    Bought this based on Consumer Reports ratings. It cleans very well, and it's very quiet, but in most other respects it's disappointing. The racks are quite a bit smaller than the 12 year old Kitchen Aid it replaced. The silverware basket is MUCH smaller. That translates into fewer dishes that can be loaded, and the need to run it more frequently. To make matters worse, the arrangement of the angled (rather than straight up and down) tines makes loading large or odd shape items more difficult. In combination, the dishwasher holds considerably less than my old one. And the industrial designer who thought it would be cool to hide all the buttons and indicator lights should be sentenced to using this dishwasher daily for the rest of his life. There's no visible indication when the cycle is done, or where in the cycle it's. You can't stop a cycle without opening the door a bit, which increases the possibility of splashing water on the floor. The Kitchen Aid has a "clean" indicator light that stayed on until you reset it. The clean light on the Bosch goes out a few seconds after you open the door. Not a problem if you live alone, but if multiple people share the same dishes it's not always obvious whether the washer has been run or not. Just really poor design. If you want a Bosch, it's probably worth spending a little more to get one with an external display. Better yet, choose a brand that holds more dishes.
