The dishwasher does a good job of cleaning the dishes. When I open it, the dishes are wet but they dry off as they cool. It is nice looking, inside and out. A bit narrower than my old GE was, so there's a slight gap on one side. It is not as quiet as my old GE Profile, but it is quiet enough. I like the utensil shelf. Things I don't like: it is hard to open. You really have to tug hard to open it and it wants to keep shutting. You have to push against resistance all the way down to open the door flat. Secondly, the buttons do not give any feedback, like beeps, when you press them, so it takes a little getting used to to know if you pressed hard enough to register. The silverware basket could be a little bigger. There are a couple sections on the racks where the prongs are close together so it's hard to fit my dishes between them, but there's always a learning curve with a new dishwasher and I'm getting used to how to arrange things. My city water is soft so I had to turn off the rinse aid or it was leaving a bubbly residue on my dishes, the manual tells how to adjust that and how to turn on or off added heat in the final rinse. Overall, it's a good dishwasher for the price and I hope it will last a long time!

Why Did I wait 19 yrs to get a washer
Customer review from logo
First, this thing is super quiet! Secondly, just enough cycles without over kill. Lastly, only negative is it fills top heavy and that just might be user learning error. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

It's a little smaller than my Kenmore that broke after 15 yrs, therefore I need to run it more frequently. If the bottom rack isn't weighed down in the rear the wheels in the front get caught between the door & the bottom of the dishwasher. If the wheels were spread further apart I believe this problem would be solved. It does clean well. It dries nice especially with the sanitize option. I wish I was able to get another Kenmore. However, I'm sure I'll get use to this one. It looks nice. The surface is a finger print proof stainless steel. I was concerned about that because my dogs would leave marks from noses & what not all over it. So far I haven't seen any, that would drive me nuts. I am very happy with that. My husband hooked it up & it was a real pain. It comes with a power cord, which is strange for a diswasher. He had to put in an electrical outlet. We would have had to purchase the direct electric wire pkg, which is how all our other dishwashers were wired. After 7 hrs & 2 different trips to home depot he said it would have been worth the extra $. The delivery guys were quick & professional. The girl that helped with getting it ordered was fantastic, she went above & beyond. I expected more from this Bosch 100 series since several friends recommended it, but like I said I'm sure I'll get use to it eventually. It's been 2 weeks now since I got it.

Excellent Appliance - Best By Far
Customer review from logo
We purchased this unit for our condominium in Wesr Palm Beach FL. We installed it ourselves (trouble free BTW). The dishwasher ultra quiet and does an excellent job cleaning our dish es, pots, pans and utensils. Competitive pricing, big bang for the buck. We highly recommend this and all Bosch appliances.

Works great .Was expecting a 3rd shelf but there isn't one only 2 little top trays to put small items on like tiny lids or tiny bowls etc. Inside is designed a little different than my old one . Little hard to get used to. Quietier than my old one. Like the color black too with red display.

Dishwasher is very quiet and very efficient. We have tested it with a few very heavy loads and it appears to clean much better than our old one. We love the stainless steel tub and the easy to use controls. My wife read the instruction book and was able to set it to work just the way we desired.

Great bang for the buck
Customer review from logo
It seems to do a great job washing and not leaving residue. Without a doubt, it's the quietest I've ever owned. The only draw back I've found is it has a strange smell on the inside, I'm hoping it's going to go away! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Very Happy!
Customer review from logo
Our old dishwasher died very unexpectedly and we had not been budgeting for a new one. I was very pleased with the price and high quality of our Bosch. Our dishes have never looked so good! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The dishwasher operates as expected however the controls are a bit difficult to get used to. In the initial setup, there are default options one must make, and later on change if one wants to to get the proper wash. This setting of controls requires multiple steps, including holding one button pressed while then pressing other buttons . This all has to be done in a certain very short time frame, otherwise the unit needs to be reset. The instructions are not really clear on this and I would recommend that the manufacturer revise and simplify instructions or provide a video link to see how it is done. I think the manufacturer tried to save money on extra buttons /controls but it made the unit more complicated. My unit hung up in the effort to set it up, and the online tech support could not get it unstuck, so tgey sent a technician I eventually reset the unit by throwing the circuit breaker off for an hour. Now the unit operates as expected. Other than this issue, the dishwasher works well and I have no complaints I am an engineer so my degree of understanding is most likely higher than the normal person.
