  • So Quiet
    Reviewed by Kitchen Kay - August 19, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We love our Bosch dishwasher. We can actually run it during the day since it is amazingly quiet. When it is done, it opens by itself and that so our reminder that it was running. It's not just about how quiet the machine is though. The middle rack is adjustable so we can fit wine glasses. There is a 3rd flat rack that holds larger utensils . Our dishes have never been cleaner.

  • Quiet and efficient
    Reviewed by Linda Ray - May 17, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is the quietest dishwasher I have ever had. And it works, even when I go against the recommendation and rinse the dirty dishes (it holds so much I usually only run it every other day; I can't bring myself to let yesterday's food dry on the dishes). I also have not yet gotten the hang of filling the rinse agent dispenser without most of the agent leaking out (is this my fault or a faulty dispenser? Time will tell, I guess). I also do not understand why all three cycles are the same length of time, but the auto setting is mostly all I use. Nice product, and I've had it less than a month, so maybe I'll like it better after I use it more.

    I usually don't leave reviews... but in this case I have to. Did a lot of looking, reading and researching about dishwashers; even spoke to Geek Squad. Ended deciding to go with this brand. Didn't want to spend arm and a leg for something I would use a handful of times a month [we eat a lot of take out] but this was reasonable. Never saw it in person but wishing I did. Maybe I would've realized it REQUIRES a rinse aid to work properly and that's still not the best. Didn't have to buy rinse aid before on a cheap dishwasher. Maybe my fault for not reading eveything after I picked this one, but it's hard to return after being installed by Best Buy

  • Great Dishwasher!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Boschfan - March 18, 2022

    We have had this dishwasher for about a month and so far it has been great. We have only used the quick wash cycle and it gets the dishes very clean, nothing needs to be rewashed. I installed it myself replacing our old Bosch and the installation was straightforward. The only issue was the cord was a few inches shorter so I had to get an extension cord. My old one had the controls on the upper edge of the door, this one is on the face and it tells you how much longer until the wash is finished. I like this feature much better. I am hoping it is as reliable as the Bosch it replaced but for a moderately priced dishwasher it exceeds my expectations.
