    Too small

    Posted
    Karmagirl

    It bothers me to have to give this machine only 2 stars as it did clean my dishes quite well, but after only having it for 2 weeks, I've decided to return it. The inside is much smaller than the GE that I had previously and there's a lot of wasted space on either side of the utensil basket that shocks me considering it's German engineering; the best in the world. Speaking of the utensil basket, I swear it fits only about 1/2 of the amount that I was used to with my GE Profile. It has all of these weird waves inside of it; not sure why, but it cramps the already small amount of space given. To add to that, it had a funny odor in the beginning that went away, but if you have any amount of water accumulating in there, it will smell unless you leave the door cracked open to air it out. No thanks..... I have a nose like a pooch, am EXTREMELY clean, and my dishes go in almost clean as when they come out so there should be NO smell. That and I tried to be all environmentally friendly with the no dryer thing and "no bueno". The inside of the machine stays soaking wet and thereby contributes more to the "stinky dishwasher" syndrome. Living in S.W. Florida, I don't need any other swamp smells around me, particularly in my home! All in all, I'd say it's probably built well, but it just wasn't right for me. Much like my ex-husband.....

    It's quiet. It's pretty. It cleans adequately. But then it started beeping when I tried to start a load. After finding the solution on youtube, of all places, the filter needed to be cleaned. Later I found that my filter was clean. I did pull the filter but the accumulated water and debris automatically found it's way into the pump as soon as I pulled the filter. Design flaw.... Yikes. Now I'm a filter and pump cleaning expert but now it just errors and beeps when there is no obstruction in the pump and the filter is pristine. So now I'm looking online for a top rated dishwasher that doesn't clog on a grain of rice or almond shard. My last dishwasher lasted 25 years and never clogged. Bosch wanted to send a tech out to "fix" what was broken on my dime. I suspect the fix will be a band-aid so we're doing better research for the next one. Fingers crossed.

    Stainless looking front panel issues

    Okay, my other half wanted me to get Bosch because he said he had one at his previous home and said it is quiet. I will give it that. He did not tell me that the soap dispenser quits within a year and needs to replaced! I am grateful that it malfunctions within the one year warranty period so it was covered by Bosch. That was cool. At the time that we were redoing our kitchen I ordered all of our appliances new, in the stainless look. All of our appliances ordered were GE, their stainless held up and stays clean and nice, we occasionally treat it with CeramaBrite Stainless cleaner and polish. The Bosch on the other hand looks terrible. If I would have known this I would have bought a black dishwasher or perhaps a GE dishwasher. It performs well, it's just the unsightly looks, rusting and ugly!!!!!

    Weird configuration

    We purchased this during the LD sales but did not have it installed until November due to a house renovation. Bad choice- now we are stuck with it. I chose this model as I did not want the 3rd rack and wanted the maximum of space. There is plenty of space but I had not noticed that Bosch did not leave any bottom rack space to put larger serving pans as I had in my previous Bosch dishwasher. That poor engineering decision along with the fact that I cannot choose to not use the heated dry are annoying. It cleans well - bit noisy on the start. More so than prior model that was in my previous home - purchased about 5+ years ago. Would not recommend this new model.

    Hidden Controls is a Bad Idea

    Posted

    Do not get the model with hidden controls! Operation of the dishwasher is negatively impacted because there is no way to tell if the cycle is complete without opening the door. Once you open the door and discover the cycle is not complete you have no way to know if you started the cycle where it left off or restarted from the beginning - or maybe didn't start at all. It’s like trying to guess if the refrigerator light is on or off when you close the door. We are unhappy with this dishwasher and unhappy with Best Buy and Bosch for not dealing with this issue, giving a warning or offering a replacement.

    Smaller than previous dishwasher

    This dishwasher is smaller than our previous one, which I do not like. Can't fit plates plus pots and pans on the bottom. For the price and brand I thought it would clean better. More often than not we have one or two dirty dishes after running it. I also don't like the fact it does not have a heated dry function, which our old dishwasher had.

    Not worth the money.

    It didn't work after the installation. We had to wait a week before anyone would come to look at it. The motor wasn't strong enough to push out the water. We returned it and went with the reliable Whirlpool.

    Cleans great but loud and the racks pop off tracks super easy. Would never buy it again and had considered strongly in replacing it with a better model.

    After a couple of years it has a few glitches that are very annoying. But, I had Best Buy install it and the glitches are 100% in fault to poor installation.

    Good washer, but busted 6 months in

    I am really disappointed this dishwasher has failed in the first 6 months! Bought the extended Geek warranty, so I'm covered, but three weeks to order part, schedule service, ugh!
