Summary: Be prepared to wash your dishes prior to placing them in this unit. We sent our 24year old Lady Kenmore to the dump and replaced it with a top of the line Bosch. I'm wishing we never decided to "upgrade" to this piece of fluff. Followed all the instructions, bought all the recommended cleaning products, and still had to hand wash most of the dishes/silverware after a full cycle.
Summary: Do not buy any bosch dishwasher. Six service calls in four years. Does that sound like a high end appliance. Customer Service does not stand behind their product. I will never buy Bosch again.

Summary: I purchased a Bosch dishwasher recommended from Best Buy. In my opinion, they suck . Best Buy told me if they have bad reviews, it's because people are not adding a rinse agent ,but that has not been my experience . The soap detergent despenser stopped working and the rinse agent door handle broke off . Also it is not so quiet during operation along with not cleaning glasses well . Good Luck !
Incredibly frustrating to load, holds half as much as our previous (Kenmore Elite)

Summary: Do not buy a Bosch Ascenta if you want to be able to load your dishes and glassware in a sensible manner. Bosch Ascenta has the WORST rack design imaginable. Impossible to load anything in real person home. Wine glasses don't fit, anything that needs to stand up straight doesn't fit. ALL of the tines are angled. The flatware basket is ridiculous and doesn't stay in place.
Summary: I will never buy another Bosch. I bought it less than three years ago and it has needed so many repairs that I'm buying a new dishwasher (not a Bosch!) rather than have one more repair call -- I've spent as much repairing this Bosch as it originally cost me. The last repair man said Bosch dishwashers were cheaply made and fragile. He recommended a Samsung or LG.

Summary: the 3 things I like about my dishwasher it does a good job of cleaning is very quiet and has a stainless interior what I don't like about it is I can't seem to get as many dishes in it and the bottom rack has wide spaces so can't put smaller things on the bottom
Summary: I have owned 2 Bosch dishwashers I am not going to own another, I went on rave reviews for the first one nothing but issues from the start, Within a couple of years had to replace the control panel not a cheap repair! within 6 months started having the same problems again, Barely worked half the time always needing to rewash the dishes, I was not going to buy another at that point but my daughter bought me another Bosch as a surprise gift, it is less then 2 years old and...
Summary: I own this Bosch Silence Plus dishwasher. Now I know why I was able to get it (used) so cheap. The woman who sold it to me was apparently eager to get rid of it. What is the point of having a dishwasher if you have to re-wash half your dishes by hand? I'm better off not even using it. Going to get another Kenmore.
Summary: This Bosch DW replaced a brand-new GE that was basically DOA with failure to close, three service calls with a fourth pending. It was cheaply made and rather than replacing it after the second service call we were pushed to accept a third and fourth call for the same exact issue. Terrible customer relations. I would never buy another GE dishwasher. Bosch SHE3ARF2UC pros: 1. Made solidly. You can tell the engineering was well thought out and implemented unlike the GE. 2.
