    I have had this machine for about a month and I honestly regret buying it. The only reason I am giving it two stars is because it cleans the dishes very well. The specifications on this machine say is super quiet, but let me tell you, IT IS NOT. It is noisy, I can hear the the entire cycle from 20 feet away. You can hear a very LOUD Whooshing sound the entire time is washing. I understand a dishwasher has to make some noise, But I am starting to think mine is defective, is THAT loud.

    We just recently had this dishwasher installed but already it has proven to far exceed our expectations. Cleaning is, of course, a main feature of a dishwasher and this one excels. We loaded dishes without any prerinsing to see how it did and I am happy to report it did fantastically well. Noise being another top factor, this one gets the checkbox there as well; it's incredibly quiet. About the only noise comes from the water draining, which I expect is nigh impossible to prevent. And last, but not least, the arrangement of the racks is amazing. Maybe we are just used to a terrible layout on our older unit, but this one fits nearly all our dishes and then some. Thoroughly impressed and pleased with our purchase.

    This Bosch dishwasher is great! It cleans very well and is extremely quiet while running. Now I can even watch TV without interruption from dishwasher noise.

    We've only done one load in the new dishwasher but so far we love it. It's VERY quiet, only hearing the drain noise into the sink plumbing when it's on that cycle. Till now we'd always 'washed' the dishes before putting them into the washer. The install guys told us not to do that so we put dirty plates and all into it where some sat for 5 days till there was a large enough load to turn it on. We were sure it couldn't get all that dried food off BUT it did except for two dishes which we soaked for a few minutes and then put back in. We're very pleased with our purchase!

    I purchased this dishwasher 13 months ago and haven't looked back since! It is absolutely the best one I've ever owned. So super quiet you have no idea it's running. The loudest noises that come from it's when it's draining, and that cycle tends to scare me sometimes because I forgot I turned it on! Dishes always come out extremely clean, and I've never had a problem. Plastic items such as Tupperware tend to come out wet even after going through the extra dry cycle. But that's a small price to pay for the otherwise awesome performance this machine provides.

    My dishwasher was installed last week. I love it! The Best Buy salesperson was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. The installers were polite and efficient and they even brought a vacuum cleaner to ensure they left my kitchen spotless. The dishwasher does an excellent job and I am very pleased with this purchase. One warning: when the dishwashing cycle finishes, it makes three loud BEEPS. If, like me, you tend to turn the dishwasher on just before going to bed, you may want to disable this feature. It caught me by surprise the first time!

    We've gone through two (! @@@@@@@ dishwashers in the past seven years. No we don't have a large family, and no we don't misuse appliances. The first, a GE profile which never cleaned well, was noisy and had multiple repairs and quit working at year 3 so we thought a Samsung would be a more reliable option. Although it worked fine for four years when it failed it failed big time. The seal and motor went at once. So we decided to go for broke and get the model we had wanted all along: the Bosch. We've only had it for a month so there's no telling how long it will last but so far we are extremely happy. It is so quiet that if it weren't for the red light (a small circle) shining on the floor we wouldn't know it was working. We love (did I say love? @@@@@@@ the three racks! No more bending down to find the long handled spoon at the bottom of the dishwasher. Even plates fit on the second rack making emptying a pleasure. We like being able to use the half load feature and the 60 minute speed cycle. We may have spent more on this one, but we are super happy with our choice.

    Super Quiet , Convenient & Effective

    We've wanted to replace our very noisy dishwasher with something a lot quieter for some time now. Our house is open-plan; you can't run the dishwasher and watch a movie at the same time. Our old dishwasher finally died and we started looking. Another family member has a Bosch 800 series and we've read lots of good things about Bosch so we started our search there and decided that it really was the best choice. How quiet is it? The 800 has an info light that shines a solid red circle on the floor when it's running so that you'll know it's running. It's THAT quiet. There are some points in the cycle that you are more likely to hear some minor sound (like when it's draining) but the sound is never intrusive; turn it on and it fades away into the background. This is a great option for open plan homes. Convenience - The 800 comes with the a flatware rack (top), rack-o-matic and cup shelves for the middle rack and no exposed heating element. Both middle and bottom racks (I think) have adjustable tines that in addition to the fixed tines (the bottom rack for sure) The top rack is a shallow rack for flatware - an alternative to the traditional flatware basket (which is also included), I find the top rack far more convenient to use than the basket (which sits in a cupboard somewhere). There are small tines to support laying each piece of silverware on edge and separate from it's neighbors which helps ensure that they all get clean. Using the top rack for flatware instead of the basket also frees up space for more dishes in the bottom rack. The cup racks in the middle rack let you stack short items like tea cups, ramekins or similar; put some on the rack, fold down the shelf and place another row above the first. The shelves fold up if you need room for tall items instead. The rack-o-matic feature for the middle rack allows you to raise and lower the middle rack. The bottom and middle racks have different features and you'll likely find a particular height setting that works best for your dishes (I did) although it's really easy to adjust the rack as needed. The 800's heating element is tucked away in the guts of the machine somewhere not sitting exposed at the bottom of the tub waiting to melt anything that falls into it's maw. I put dishes where it's most convenient and don't worry about top rack vs bottom rack. We've been very pleased with the 800's cleaning results - it consistently does a great job of getting the dishes clean. Per the instructions, we don't rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher; we just scrape off any big pieces of food and put them right in the dishwasher. NOTE: The quietest dishwashers (across all brands) don't include a food grinder because these are noisy. They have a filter to catch big pieces of food instead. We were a little concerned about having a filter- another thing to maintain. But our family member who owns an 800 said they rarely if ever need to empty/rinse out the filter. After a month or so, that's been our experience as well; scrape the big pieces off before you put the dishes in the dishwasher and there won't be anything for the filter to do (FYI: the filter is permanent - not a consumable item). One observation - There has been a small (but very acceptable) learning curve for loading this dishwasher. The racks aren't like racks in other dishwashers I've used; there are lots of different ways to load dishes - especially with the adjustable tines, cup rack and rack-o-matic. After you've run a few loads, you'll learn to take advantage of the 800's flexibility. We are really pleased with the Bosch 800.
