Summary: So far so good. We purchased this Bosch Ascenta (SHE3AR55UC) from Lowe's after making the mistake of accepting a "working" Bosch dishwasher from a neighbor. We thought that machine would be an upgrade from our old Maytag, but after spending $165 to install the thing, it turned out it was not working...
Not as good as the 12 yr old whirlpool it is replacing

Summary: I own several apartments and have purchased and installed at least 15 dishwashers. This dishwasher replaced a 12 yr old whirlpool. It has several problems. 1) It stinks up the entire house. 2) the door pops open about seven times during a cycle-shutting the unit down. 3) It doesn't dry dishes.
Summary: I purchased a Bosch Ascenta dishwasher in 2010, my first Bosch. It is very quiet, although as the years pass, it is not nearly as quiet as when new. I was quickly disappointed in how ineffective their "drying" process is.
Summary: Like many others here, we purchased the Bosch SHE3ARblahblahblah Ascenta on the strength of Consumer Reports (a company frequently wrong about computers and now dishwashers), and also the recommendation of our local shop. It is quiet.
Summary: I recently bought the white exterior version. So far, so good, but with a few caveats, which are enumerated below. It replaces a 14-year-old Kenmore [KitchenAid, I believe] unit that evidently rusted through the interior door panel, causing a short in the control circuit board.
Summary: I bought the new Bosch Ascenta because it was highly rated by Consumer Reports for performance and reliability, but the lay out of the machine makes me wish I'd bought another model. The control panel is needlessly complicated compared to my old model. One needs to reselect the setting each load.
Summary: We purchase our bosch because of the good reviews from several sites. Our machine is less than two years old and it is only my wife and I that use it... we are retired and travel so usage has been minimal... After exactly one year and a few days the pump went out...
Summary: We have the She3ar7uc We had a need for something quick in a very busy time. I bought what CR and consumerresearch recommended. We've only done one load so far and it did clean the dishes well, but my two complaints are: 1.
