    Quiet, efficient. Poor control design.

    We have had the dishwasher for three months now. It operates quietly as everyone says. We like the adjustable shelf although when all the way down you cannot have larger pots and pans on bottom. The control buttons are poorly designed. The text rubs off when wet, which they are bound to become in a kitchen. After three months we can no longer read on/off and start button. Others are starting to wear off too. The buttons also are very sensitive so delay option often gets turned on 'by itself'. I suggest looking for a different model without the handle and hidden touch buttons.

    Quiet Dishwasher

    After reading many reviews, we decided on the Bosch 800 series dishwasher. It is incredibly quiet, and the red light reflected on the floor is a good reminder that it's on. The 3rd rack is nice for spatulas and other flat-ish tools, but not much else. We had read some users didn't like the height of the center rack, but that was super-easy to adjust. Cons: Since it doesn't use a heating element to dry, even when using the "sanitize" feature, glasses (around the rim) and food storage containers aren't completely dry, even if they sit overnight. The utensil basket cross-tines are curved, so some random slots are deeper than others, which could have been done better. Overall happy with the dishwasher.

    My old KitchenAid dishwasher died few months ago and I replaced with a new KitchenAid not knowing about new energy efficiency regulation. Issues started almost immediately, No matter what we did the machine was stinking before, during and after wash, Geek Squad came over multiple times and could not figure out what happened. Finally told me to get a different brand and see how it goes. I purchased this one. This machine was twice the price and looks nicer and stinks less. The issue with stinking machines is not 100% gone, but it is not constant as before. To all that are replacing an old machine I recommend fixing it first and if not make sure you get extended warranty. New machines suck.

    This is a replacement for a bosch500 series unit. The previous unit had failed just aftet a year so best buy exchanged it for us. Kudos to best buy. So far, this unit seems to be better than the previous one; good fit and finish, the touch sense buttons work well, and it cleans well on just normal..so far. I'll keep an eye on all the different settings for evaluation. Overall we are happy with the new unit. It is very quiet and seems to dry the diahes a little better than the 500 unit. We'll see how this goes in time, as that was a problem with the older one. Service from best buy and the techs was great. The unit is expensive but will be worth it in the long run.

    I have owned the new dishwasher for about one month and am satisfied with its ability to clean. It is very quiet and wouldn’t know it was running if not for the red light at the bottom. I like the flexibility when loading and also the third drawer for special items. The delay is also very handy. My only complaint (which I have read in some other reviews) is the smell...sometimes when I open the door an awful smell escapes. I have run the washer a couple of times this week due to more dirty dishes than usual, and didn’t notice the smell today. Maybe that is the key —- more frequent usage. Fingers crossed the smell is gone.

    Our Kenmore Elite died, so we needed a replacement. After doing some research, decided to fork $1000 for a Bosch. We opted for the stainless steel model with the towel handle bar. We have done a few loads so far, and even after rinsing the dishes before loading the dishes still noticing some stains on the dishes. We will try a few other settings to see, otherwise we will have to live with it. There is less space compared to our Kenmore, but I guess thats not a bad thing because you use your dishwasher more often.

    The Bosch dishwasher is extraordinarily quiet, a real change from the last two months of squealing ball bearings when I used my old dishwasher. However, I find this dishwasher is more compact. I have had to learn different ways to load the dishes to get the maximum number in. They come out clean, but I often have to wash the coffee pot and a couple other small items for breakfast the next morning. No problem, really. I am just mildly disappointed. But the dishes are clean and I appreciate the variation in settings that I can use.

    Clean and Spot Free

    Dishes and glasses come out squeaky clean and spot free. The dishwasher is absolutely quiet. The only (2) drawback is that the inside of the dishwasher seems small and it is tricky getting everything in without having to do 2 loads. Also there is moisture on the inside door after the dishwasher's run. Those are the reasons for 4 stars. With that considered, I would still buy it again. The sales person and the geek squad installer were an absolute pleasure to deal with.

    Extremely quiet dishwasher

    This dishwasher is very quiet, which is exactly what I wanted! My only reason for giving it a 4-star rating instead of 5 is because it isn't as easy to load as my old noisy dishwasher. It doesn't accommodate large odd-shaped items. Of course, since I've only had the dishwasher for a few weeks, it could be that I'm still learning how to position those types of items in it. It cleans very well, and most importantly, I can barely hear it running.

    The 800 Bosch cleans well. It is very quiet.as other reviewers have stated, it is great to have the red light indicator that allows you to know the unit is on, There is water left on top of glasses and other items because of the drying method it uses. I do think the silverware holder takes up a lot of space, I’m glad I saved my shorter one from my previous unit

    I bought this to replace a different brand dishwasher that had multiple issues. This dishwasher is quiet, holds a ton of dishes, and gets them clean. The third rack is amazing! Perfect for long utensils, liquid medicine cups, etc. The only thing I don’t care for is the fold down part on the top rack - it seems to get in the way of cups going in.

    First machine delivered failed to go through full cycle. Was replaced by Best Buy immediately without any hassle. Now working perfectly. The proof will of course be in the longevity, which makes initial reviews of limited value. But so far A+.

    Dishwasher washes dishes very well and is extremely quiet. Learning curve on loading it. Wish Bosch had included a DVD to give loading tips. Bosch was delivered with incorrect front bottom panel which we are still waiting for. It took several calls and visit to store to get help with this issue

    The good - very quiet, seems to do a good job getting things clean, 3rd rack is a nice feature for knives and large utensils. The not so good - dishes don't dry. After a cycle is complete, I generally open the door for a while. I'm lazy and don't want to dry!

    Machine is quiet. Removed the silverware basket and use the upper drawer for them. Silverware is easier to put away and you don't have to grab portion that touches your food with your hands. Doesn't dry the dishes well but don't think any without a heater do.

    I have ran less than 10 washes on this new appliance. Very sleek, quiet. Normal cycles seem longer than my older Bosch and the door feels lighter/cheaper, jury's still out on whether this one is more efficient

    Adjustable heights on middle rack very helpful. Also enjoy third upper rack for knives and utensils. Extremely quiet and cleans very well. I miss having a heat option for drying; dishes have more water residue than previous dishwasher.

    One of our main goals was to find a quiet dishwasher. This one is very quiet however, if very full it does not always clean everything fully. Also, the extra dry mode still leaves some water and dampness here and there.

    We've only had this dishwasher a few weeks. It cleans better than the LG we replaced. Racks are sturdy. It runs very quietly. Only complaint is that it takes over 2 hours to run a regular cycle. The salesman told us it would take 45 minutes to an hour.

    The written identifiers on the top of the door that identifies what each button does are wearing off. It should be noted that the dishwasher does a good job of cleaning and is very quiet.
