Answers

Hi JP. Thank you for your question. Please contact your local Home Depot store for questions regarding returns on product. The dishwasher includes a power cord that will directly plug into an outlet, however if your previous dishwasher was hardwired you will need the junction box in order to hardwire the Bosch dishwasher. Since January 2020 all Bosch dishwashers include a 110v power cord for plug-in. For hardwire installations an accessory junction box, SMZPCJB1UC, is available for purchase.

Bosch 800 Series SHEM78ZH5N
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had several other Bosch Dishwashers prior to this model. (The others had mechanical issues.) I am hoping this higher end model lasts longer. So far everything is working fine and this model is the quietest of all the models I previously owned. The hidden controls are very easy to navigate and the front display is very intuitive and virtually unnoticeable. Looking forward to many years of uninterrupted use!

CLEAN & QUIET AT LAST!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this Bosch 800 series in December and could not be happier. It gets my dishes squeaky clean with no spotty dishes! In addition, this machine is by far the quietest running appliance I have ever owned. The racks inside are adjustable to many positions which allows for many different sizes of dishes, trays, glasses and pots. I would definitely recommend and would buy again! Five Stars to BOSCH!

Quiet and efficient
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sold on Bosch. Does everything as advertised. Very satisfied with cleaning ability.

Very Quiet - Quality Appliance
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It is very well built. No problems with it whatsoever. It is amazingly quiet.
by Rich
Best Dishwasher we've ever owned.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the many wash options. Love the top 3rd shelf for sharp knives and small items. Cleans very well. Quiet. Easy to load.
by Patti
Great dishwasher
Bought a new Bosch with the third rack. Love the third rack Washer does a great job washing and drying!
by Abby
Great - as long as you use the Heavy Wash setting
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very quiet dishwasher which is a nice change from my old one. I've found that the regular wash setting doesn't clean well enough. If you use the Heavy Wash setting (which is actually 15 minutes shorter), it's great!

Bosch SHEM78ZH5N
Excellent cleaning performance. Drying with crystal dry option is good, even for plasticware. Front display is really useful in monitoring the wash cycle info, given it's super quiet operation.
by Cap15
It is quiet and cleans well. Impossible to use.
I do not recommend this dishwasher. I bought it becuase I liked a prior Bosch dishwasher for being very quiet. This is a very quiet dishwasher. However, it is horribly cumbersome and difficult to use this appliance. Examples: It has remote, but you cannot use it becuase it only lasts until the door is open. There are numerous other interface/usability problems that I experience each day. It only dries the dishes if you select the exact right combinatipon of AUTO, DRY, and SANITIZE. The control buttons are nearly impossible to press accurately. They require perfect timing to select and reslease without either boouncing or not selecting. A horrid design. The list of inconveniences are endless. Inside, the dishwasher is well designed and it cleans well and dries poorly unless you use the special settings. I would not again ever make this trade-off of usability versus expensive and quiet.
