    This dishwasher is incredible. It is so quite you almost have to check to see if it is really on. We bought this to replace on old Kenmore dishwasher that was over 20 years old and was starting to show its age. It was a big deal for us to get one with a delayed start feature because we used to delay the Kenmore to go on in the middle of the night because of the noise. Turns out, that is not necessary with this Bosch machine. Now we just turn it on and don't even bother with the delay. It holds so much more also. The third top rack is great for small items. Very happy with it.

    Awful drying

    Bought this dishwasher as we replaced everything in our kitchen. Read that this is condensation drying and figured the dishes would come out dry, just like our old 15 year old dishwasher. Wrong. Dishes come out soaking wet even with rinse aid and the sanitized drying cycle. There is an awful trash smell even when the dishwasher is empty. Bosch customer service is horrible and no help. Picture is 2 days after unloading the dishwasher.

    Lots of very nice features and works great! As opposed to the 800 series at my previous home, the newer models have the faster 60 minute wash, which is greta compared to the standard 2 hr 30 min standard wash cycle. Lots of programmable features for drying cycles, rinse aid usage, etc., and is very quiet! I believe it offers the best layout of inner racks and utensil holders. I personally find the third (top) utensil rack useless and always have removed, which does expand the height for the middle rack nicely. I highly recommend any of the Bosch series, however the options between the 300 (very quiet), 500 (almost silent), and 800 (silent) series do not result in relative price points. Save a few dollars and enjoy the 300 series!

    This is our second Bosch dishwasher. The first was good for 12 years. It is not only the quietest but the fastest with the 60 minute wash. Dishes will sometimes have water on top if they have a rim that catches water. Always are spotless and the third shelf is a real plus. The interior stays clean and the racks never rusted in our old machine. I specially like The advertised feature that catches water that could leak By a seal without dripping on floor. Our old machine had a circulation pump fail it was cost prohibitive to replace. We prefer models that have buttons and progress reports on the front versus on top of door.

    Quiet Upgrade

    Our old Bosch died after 14 years of service. I researched all the models/makes and this model stuck out as a consistent favorable choice. It is much quieter than my older dishwasher that wasn’t that loud. We have an open kitchen/living room and it can’t be heard other than the quick cycle when the water is draining. The third rack for knives and large flat utensils is helpful. It holds a lot and is flexible too. If you you haven’t had a Bosch, recognize that the washing cycles are long and items will not be always be completely dry ( no heating coil - more energy efficient and plastics are less likely to get warped).

    I've heard lots of great things about Bosch so I was excited to try this new baby out. There is a 3rd rack feature, first time I've had it. Sometimes I have to take it out to fill tall glasses on the 2nd rack. I've only had this for less than a month. I found it difficult to figure out the best way to fill compared to my old GE. I guess my old GE was more user friendly in that way where putting dishes in was a piece of cake. With all the feature of this Bosch it takes me a while to get in the same amount of dishes as before. My first try it seemed to be crystal clear dishes that came out. Second try I found some stains, so I will need to try it out longer than a month to see the big differences in cleaning. The major plus is I love the way it looks with my stainless steel appliances that are all different brands.

    My wife and I love this dishwasher. It is truly quiet. In fact, we often don't even know it's running. It does clean the dishes well, but we rinse and practically wash everything that we put in the dishwasher, so it's hard to say how it does the dishes are not rinsed well. The timer accurately reflects how much time is left which I appreciate. My only gripe is that the dishes can be a bit damp even after running with the extra dry option. I add the sanitzer to dry the dishes even more, which adds about 20 min (so just shy of 3 hours on normal wash). When I add the santize cycle, the dishes are dry to my satisfaction.

    very quiet and great to have 3 washing racks

    This dishwasher is very quiet and so far has been working great and cleans well. Having the 3rd cleaning rack at the top for silverware frees up a lot of space below for more dishes. For what it costs, some parts of it do seem a little cheap, like the door cover and the various seals around the unit. In addition, for the price of this dishwasher I did'nt appreciate having to purchase a power cord adapter. This dishwasher came with wires into a junction box that needs to be mounted inside your cabinet. In order to plug it into the wall to power it you have to buy a separate cord with a plug on one end and wire it to the junction box. It should have been included. Also should not have had to purchase separately the 90 degree water valve adapter to connect the water line to the dishwasher.

    Not what I expected

    This dishwasher works great in cleaning the dishes and not leaving spots. The quietest dishwasher I've had in years, you can barely hear it running. The only problem was that the salesman neglected to let us know that it didn't have a garbage disposal so it holds food smells. From the first washing, the food smells linger. I feel like I have to wash the dishes after each meal to not have the smells in the dishwasher. Also, you have to push the On button then start to start the dishwasher, then the Off button to turn it off. It doesn't turn off by itself so your display is lit until you turn it off. I don't know how much electricity this uses but if you run the dishwasher before you go to bed, you are using electricity ALL night.

    Quiet Dishwasher

    We’ve had this dishwasher for a short while now and it is very quiet. As others have noted, there can be water left on the dishes or glasses after the cycle especially if there are grooves. I don’t find this to be a problem. However, if you might, then you probably should go with a different dishwasher that has a true dry mechanism. I use the recommended sanitize and extra dry options and, again, don’t find the water, if any, remains to be an issue. I like how clean my dishes and glassware look as well as the quietness. I also like the 3rd shelf at the top which I use for silverware.

    Bosch is Best

    I bought this unit to replace an older Bosch with which I was very satisfied. I enjoy having the top rack though I often forget I put knives and other utensils up there and they end up going through multiple washes! The unit cleans extremely well which is why we buy dishwashers, right? It's quiet which is important for me since we have an open floor plan. I installed it which was pretty easy, but I was a bit miffed that I couldn't use the old drain old since the new one was already attached to the drain pump and was a bit shorter than the one already in place.

    As quiet as it gets!

    After extensive research, we chose Bosch and this particular model. The punch line is that we love it. First, the dishes get clean - and we're using the short (60 minute) cycle. We've had some minor issues, such as with a small ovenware item in the top (third) tray not getting fully clean, but that's been a rarity. Second, we're amazed at how quiet it is. My office is next door to the kitchen. Talking on the phone used to be a problem when the dishwasher was running. Now, I need to peek around the corner to see if the red timer is on. We knew in advance that there would be problems figuring out how to load bowls in particular, to get the most dishes per load. We still haven't got it quite right. When we do, this rating will move up to a 5 star.

    not quite as good as the older Bosch

    I bought this to replace an older Bosch Dishwasher that had the circulation pump impeller come apart. after almost 14 years of service. I run with soft water which I'm sure helped it last so long. I had to have something as quiet as the original and I say this one is. The only thing so far I'm a little skeptical about is it's drying , even set at the "max" settings I think the older one did a better job on drying . Installation went well but you'll need the newer hose kit if your a DIY'er. The kit comes with all the proper fittings and hose which further keeps the filling cycle quieter than copper tubing I had on the older machine. Having the 3rd rack allows more room for the bigger things in the lower racks which is a plus.

    A Great Choice

    I had originally purchased a different Bosch model in the 800 series. Had I been able to see this one in store prior to purchase of the 800 series model, I would definitely have ordered this one. The options panel part below the recessed handle is push button, which, to me, will be much more reliable in the long term than a sensor panel would have been. I have only been using it for 10 days, but I am really pleased with the results. I have even washed good china and crystal in this dishwasher, and the results were stunning. There was no dulling of the platinum parts of either china or crystal. The Extra Dry option ensures that a load will be completely dry upon removal. This model is also very quiet.

    This is the second Bosch dishwasher I have owned. My Bosch series 800 I had problems with. This one works great. Bosch apparently made some changes for the better. The racks go in and out with ease even with heavy plates in the rack. So far no error codes. The recessed handle is nice addition . I also like the push buttons on the front panel. Unlike the touch panel. Again I repeat the dishes come out sparkling clean. The wash cycle is quite long but I think they all are nowadays. I always use auto but you may want to try a different setting if you need the dishes quicker.

    Nice Dishwasher. Very quiet except when water drains. This may very well be my setup into the drain but keeping the drain plug down eliminates the noise by 90%. I installed myself which was very easy. The unit is meant to be hard wired into a box provided by Bosch. One note, there is no clearance to install the box behind the dishwasher so you either need to recess into the wall, or if you are lucky enough to have your power coming near the sink, you can place there. It is a good dishwasher. Cleans well. Wife is still figuring out the best way to align the dishes but she will figure it out.

    Smells of rotten eggs

    I have spoken to supervisors at customer service twice. If you want dry dishes you must open the door precisely one hour after the cycle is complete. If you want a dishwasher that does not smell like rotten eggs you need to run the rinse cycle or the regular cycle every day. I never imagined I would be beholden to an expensive dishwasher and have a hard time believing that most customers want to spend this much time maintaining their dishwashers. Apparently the supervisors get calls with the same complaints on a regular basis

    Free installation didn't happened

    The Bosch machine seems to be fine but the installation was faulty. Causing no water in the sink. "Installers" didn't take any responsibility to solve the problem and blamed the "plumbing" which was 100% working before they swapped out the old dishwasher and installed the new one. After not getting response for about a month we were forced to call a private plumber to solve the problem: he found out that during the installation, the installer (from Pacific Sales which are contracted by Best Buy), dropped some broken plastic which got stock in the faucet and blocked the water flow to the kitchen sink. We had to pay $125 to the plumber in what was suppose to be a "free installation".

    Easy to install, quiet, cleans great, but has one huge problem. We wash dishes often, so dishwashers get replaced every 4-5 years and have tried them all. As with anything new it takes a while to get familiar with it. Well my wife and I have tried to load this dishwasher every way possible and both have decided that the racks are not designed for a mix of dishes, glasses, pots, pans... What would be one load in all other dishwashers, turns in to two in this one. Whoever designed this never used it. If it wasn’t so much trouble to return, that is what we would be doing.

    After all the research, this was the choice. But, some reviews said otherwise - primarily the "doesn't dry" complaint. This was definitely the right choice! Great machine! Dries beautifully. So friggin quiet! Dishes SO clean (without rinsing/soaking)! Wow and whew! I suppose there are lemons but not ours! Great machine. Best Buy install team were perfect - quiet, professional, and effective. We are 60 days into it - using it nightly - no negatives! Oh, and have to say - having the controls facing out is OUTSTANDING - terrific feature not available generally. 1st Bosch machine - I like it.
