    Does Not Dry Dishes

    The only reason I am giving 1 star is the fact the Bosch 800 is extremely quiet. That is the ONLY feature I found that was positive. On the Negative side, when I run the dishwasher on the Normal or Auto selection, the dishes as dripping wet. I always keep the reservoir filled to the top with the recommended Finish Jet Dry / Drying agent. So I started selecting "Extra Dry" too when I would run the dishwasher. The dishes are still dripping wet. I had a Kenmore Elite prior to buying this Bosch 800. It was noisy, but for a 15 year old dishwasher, it dried the dishes. I understand some dishes have pools of water due to their shape, but all my dishes are dripping wet and I have to dry each one of them. Another problem I found with this dishwasher is the stench of garbage. Unless you wash your dishes off thoroughly and leave not a spec of food, the dishwasher will smell like rotten garbage after 1 day. I really regret buying this dishwasher and I'm extremely unhappy. Sadly, I am stuck with it now. So I want to warn consumers, DO NOT BUY BOSCH 800 SERIES Dishwashers.

    Disappointing

    I originally steered away from the Bosch dishwashers as the remaining time readouts are all red LEDs. Personal opinion but I do not like the way it looks and the red readout definitely does not match the rest of my appliances. Based on photos I noticed that the NEW 2017 model readout changed to white. Unfortunately this is not the case. After installing the dishwasher i see that the digital readout is still the same. To give the washer the credit its due. It cleans the dishes really well and is extremely quiet... but there are other dishwasher manufactures that make the same quality machine that don't alter their final product from the photos and description on their website I feel a little comfort in knowing I purchased from Best Buy so I know I can return the product. Would I recommend this dishwasher. It depends on what you are looking for. As I said the machine works really well but it really irritates me when manufactures change the design and dont tell the consumer.

    So disappointed

    I am 50+ years old and have owned GE Profile, Whirlpool, Bosch and Miele DWs over my life, and this is the worst DW I have ever owned. It does not clean the dishes! I suspect a bad pump, but the Bosch service rep says it’s working fine. He recommended we preclean the dishes and run hot water in the sink to raise the water temp before starting the DW. He also said the DW we own only works well with “Finish” brand detergent and rinse agent. Say whaaaaatt? We don’t want to use Finish products. We expect much more from a $1000 DW (with installation). The poor performance and service from Bosch is sooooo disappointing. Maybe we have been lucky in the past, but this is our first DW that is virtually useless. Oh, and like others mention in reviews, it does not dry the dishes very well.

    After 2 weeks started leaking

    Did a ton of research before buying this Bosch. Paid almost a grand for it. Greek Squad did a great job with the installation. I was shocked. Unfortunately after two weeks it started to leak in the front door. At first I thought it was a fluke. Then today after 5 weeks since the install it's leaking again. Good thing I was home so I saw the soap coming out of the bottom of the door. I checked and the seals looks brand new nothing seems to be wrong with it. But if i close the door and start a cycle water would drip out from the bottom of the door. Very disappointed.

    having a terrible time with this dishwasher

    Posted

    It leaves grit and doesn't clean all the plates. The glasses are terribly cloudy. Pots and pans? Forget about it. I have to rinse items and wash items by hand, after they have gone through this dishwasher. I have to inspect items to see that they are clean. I have read the manual, done the troubleshooting, called the local Bosch representative for advice. I have cleaned the food trap, adjusted the settings per the manual. I have added special additive to detergent (at advice of local Bosch rep). Nothing works. Bosch has such a high rating and excellent reputation. I am very unhappy that my Bosch dishwasher is terrible. Can anyone offer help or guidance?

    Overpriced junk

    After only three weeks of use our Bosch 800 is completely broken and will not function. It has been over a week since it broke and we still cannot get it fixed because the local repair shops Bosch contracts with cannot get the parts. Wondering why I paid almost $1,000 for a dishwasher after hand-washing dishes for a week. Do NOT recommend this product to anyone.

    All fiters clean, drain wide open, still will not complete a cycle. Less than 1 year old. Piece of junk. I thought I was buying a quality product. And for nearly $1000 for a dishwasher, should not have issues less than a year old. This thing is about in the garbage. Buyer beware!

    Bought DW, charged to BB credit card, but they would not deliver and install. Have talked to Corporate BB, but they have no answer as to why. After 4 weeks without a DW, picked it up at store and had another company install. Will not buy appliances again from BB.

    I bought the product brand new. It didn't have all of the parts. The manufacturer told me that I would have to buy the parts that should have been included. Will be returning this and never by anything bosch again.

    It broke and we have a technician coming out to fix. Will not run. The error looks like some kind of leak. We have been without a dishwasher most of the summer.
