    Simply the best!

    I did hours of research before finally deciding on Bosch. Cost was the main factor holding me back, but I'm glad I did it. I waited for a sale and luckily there was a rebate being offered by my local utility for energy star appliances. Also, It came with a power cord and I reused my old water supply line so I didn't need to purchase the install kit. I have a small open floor plan condo so I wanted something quiet--this thing is so quiet, I've literally had to put my ear up to the door to tell it's running. Yes, it has a red laser that shines on the floor, but I wanted reassurance. Features I didn't know I needed but now can't live without: The height-adjustable rack is brilliant! My 9" big-gulp, wine glasses actually stand straight up on the top rack! Constantly adding rinse-aid? The built-in water softener solves that problem as it cuts down on the amount of rinse-aid that's needed per wash. I couldn't be happier with it and highly recommend it.

    Had this Bosch a couple of months. Bought it to replace a very old, existing dishwasher in a home I purchased. Was hoping to get a larger model but had to get the smaller one to accommodate other appliances. I’ve been pretty happy with it so far. Being a smaller size, it is difficult to get a lot of dishes into it. Some of my dishes don’t fit very well into the existing tines. I like the built in water softener as the water here in San Antonio is very hard so it helps to clean the dishes well. The operating instructions could be a little better. There are some things that are a little confusing and I don’t feel like the instructions that came with it did a very good job explaining everything. I do like the look of it particularly the hidden buttons. It is very quiet, though the cycles are pretty long at about 2 1/2 hours, but that seems relatively typical these days.

    Excellent 18” dishwasher

    I had a Miele 18” dishwasher for almost 20 years. Worked great until it didn’t and the repair cost didn’t seem worth it. The cost for a new Miele was prohibitive. My sister has a standard size Bosch and loves it. I ordered through Best Buy and was told it would be delivered in 3 weeks. The next day I got a call from Jen/appliance dept @ Best Buy in San Rafael who told me they had an ‘out of box’ Bosch 18” that was ready for pickup at 1/2 the cost. Done and done. My contractor installed it two days later. I very much appreciated Jen going out of her way - great customer service! Have told all my friends about the very ++++ experience with Best Buy. By the way the dishwasher is just as quiet as my old Miele.

    Fits a pretty good amount of stuff. Cleans well. Very very quiet during almost the entire cycle. I literally have to put my ear right up to it when I start it to be sure it's even running. Make sure you buy Bosch's dishwasher salt if you want to use it when it arrives. Also be careful not to lose your water testing strips when you open the package. My plumber lost mine and I had to wait a week for new ones to arrive so I could test my water and use the machine.

    quiet and well laid out

    Dishwasher is great - super quiet and the interior space laid out very well for an 18" wide d/w. make sure you have dedicated 3 prong outlet unless you plan on installing yourself (installers won't do install if you don't). also drain hose was too short and needed to special order an extension. don't buy the kit - you don't need the electrical part and also don't need the water line if the d/w is close to sink.

    As I'd expect from Bosch, great finish and performance ... plus super quiet. The wash cycle is barely audible. Only when it empties wash water do you really hear it. I would note; however, Best Buy recommended the "Smart Choice - Dishwasher Water Line and Power Cord Kit," which I returned because the appliance comes with power and water connections.

    best dishwasher for this size

    Posted

    This is the best dishwasher I have ever had. It is quiet and small, but has the cleaning capability and capacity of a full-size dishwasher. The dishwasher is also simple to use. Quality is unmatched. The stainless steel and handles also easily matches other brands and blends in. Installation through Best Buy was outstanding. If you aren't sure if the quality and capabilities are worth the higher price, it is. You will not be disappointed.

    Arrived from the factory w/ water and a bad odor

    Posted

    I literally JUST had this delivered and was so excited about my little Bosch but it arrived with water (more than a few drops) and a really bad smell. ARE YOU KIDDING ME, Bosch? I understand it needs to be tested, but who wants to spend $900 for a dishwasher that stinks before you've even used it. Are they not able to dry the thing out before it goes on a ship or truck for a week? When I called Bosch, the response was essentially "That's just how it is. Run it through a wash cycle." Ugh.

    The Bosch Dishwasher SPX68U55UC is a quality product which provides our family with an efficient way to spend time together each evening instead of hand washing dishes. The price break and free installation & delivery is one of the reasons we purchased it @ Best Buy. Very happy to encourage others to buy this model.

    Gets dishes totally clean. Operates quietly as in you cannot hear it at all. It shines a small red light on the floor to show it is operating. Racks are adjustable to allow you to set it up the way it will work best for you. Love the silverware washing area. Great dishwasher.

    Nice Dishwasher but Doesn't Dry As Well As I Like

    This Bosch dishwasher is tall, thin and compact for smaller spaces. Fitted as expected. I think they need more ways to configured the inside esp the bottom rack. I don't feel like it drys the dishes very well though. Obviously the jet dry helps but they never get fully dry.

    Perfect dishwasher for my small space. So quiet I can only tell it is running by the red light on the floor. Dishes very clean and half load option is extremely useful. Installer was terrific also.

    Gets dishes amazingly clean. Love the flat silverware rack. Very easy to unload. If you only need a small dish washer, this is the one! And... soooo quiet.

    Perfect dishwasher. Very sleek design. Love the utensil rack on the top (that gives extra room for dishes on the bottom). Very quiet when running. Great efficiency.

    No room for a full size machine, gave up a cabinet and a drawer for this, and it was so worth it! Had 17 people for a salad bar potluck and cleaned up in just one load! So quiet, too!

    I am thrilled to have a dishwasher again after almost 20 years without!!! I have a small kitchen so this smaller size dishwasher works out great for me. It is so quiet and gets the dishes clean.

    Love this dishwasher. Dishes come out very clean, without water stains, because of the water soften feature. Installer did a good job installing it as well.
