Summary: I'm sure the remarkably bad experience I had with my former dishwasher, a Whirlpool Gold® GU2800XTV, has a direct bearing on my enthusiasm for this Bosch dishwasher. That Whirlpool dishwasher was without a doubt the most troublesome appliance I have ever owned over a span of 60+ years. Fortunately I purchased the extended warranty but even the Whirlpool warranty company eventually wrote the GU2800XTV off as a lemon.
Summary: #1 Dishes are always wet ( I guess no drying cycle ?) #2 Bowls and cookware are hard to fit in #3 Overall hard to fit in as much as in other dishwashers #4 Doesn't lock itself during washing - could be opened easily #5 Buttons look flimsy, I wonder how long it will last #6 Changing cycles is not intuitive
Bad rack & basket designs and NOT a true, full size dishwasher

Summary: We didn't buy our Bosch here at Amazon, but have been so grateful for reviews we've used here that we thought we'd pass along what we've experienced with this product. We did post reviews at other sites, but aren't sure it's okay to post a link here.
Summary: I bought it in July, and it was great for a few months, but then it stopped completing cycles. The time display would freeze, sometimes it would stop completely, other times it would just keep going and going with the frozen time display. I'd turn it on at night, and it would still be running, with the time display stuck on one minute remaining when I woke up the next morning. So, why a two- star review rather than a one- star?
Summary: I'm the one that unloads the dishwasher in our house. Cleaning: When I unloaded our old Maytag, I would have to rewash 30% of the dishes because they didn't come clean. This dishwasher is 100% clean over 3 loads so far! All the dishes are cleaner than anything that came out of the Maytag. The dishes are very HOT when it's done. Noise: We couldn't watch TV with the Maytag running. Not a problem with this one.
Summary: I have had this dishwasher about 2 weeks. It is very quiet, not dead silent, but the quietest dishwasher I have heard. Cleaning of dishes is excellent. My old dishwasher had left a white film on all the dishes which the Bosch removed in one or two cleanings (using the same Finish detergent). The regular cycles are long, like most newer dishwashers (about 2 hours) but the Express Wash cycle does a very good cleaning job in about 30 minutes.
Summary: Have been using this dish washer for two months now and really like it. When the dishwasher is in normal wash mode you can barely hear it while in the same room. If you are in your living room talking to someone or watching TV you can't hear this baby at all. Much quieter than our last dishwasher which was 15 years old and had seen better days. Front controls are easy to use. Plenty of space for small,medium and large dishes on the inside of this unit.
Summary: It took me two or three days to research washing machines. I decided on this one and got it locally at about the same price with free set up and delivery. The reviews on Amazon are so very helpful. I have had this machine a couple weeks. My old machine died electronically and the start button failed. The nite before this one was delivered, it came back to life!! But it was 25 years old and my dishes did not sparkle. Now they do.
Almost Perfect Dishwasher, with a few minor annoyances

Summary: Overall, the Bosch SHE3AR72UC is a great dishwasher and I'm very happy with it. First, you have to understand the model numbers - the SHX models have hidden controls and the SHE models have front panel controls (both are very easy to use). The AR7 has an LED display a few more cycle options than the AR5.
