Summary: I bought the Bosch SHE3AR72UC/12. We use the recommended Finish Powerballs and liquid rinse agent. Our water is 130F, I use the long (2 hour 10 minute) wash setting, check for spray arm catching and I clean the filter every time. In spite of all those precautions, I still get redeposit of small food particles on my glasses. Very frustrating!
Summary: So I got this dishwasher from a chain hardware store since they had a special Rebate going on. Having owned it for a few months now, some quick and easy insight; PROS: - Fairly simple install. A few parts (clearly described in instructions) are needed to be purchased separately, but shouldn't cost more than $20. - Runs SUPER quiet. Really, I can't state how quiet this thing is. - Dishes come out very clean.
Summary: The racks for this dishwasher are setup for small plates, small cups and small glasses - tupperware, pint glasses, large coffee mugs, soup bowls don't fit comfortably. This makes for awkwardly loaded racks and suboptimal cleaning. I can't figure out what the designers were thinking in terms of the rack setup. In addition to the weird tines to hold the dishes, the racks are markedly smaller than other washers.
Summary: This and all Bosch dishwasher do not have a drying unit and they don't dry dishes. Worse, water backs up in the arm of the top rack and splatters dishes with yet more water. The arm does not dry out even after weeks without using the dishwasher. Please don't make the horrible mistake I made. Never ever buy any Bosch dishwasher.
Summary: It is smaller inside than your average dishwasher. Probably because the more sound insulation the smaller the capacity. I disagree with others about the "bad" design. It Is designed differently but once you figure out the system, it holds nearly as much as a standard dishwasher. I have two daughters who will load dishes covered with dried caked on food. I told them " if this thing cleans those dishes you put in there, I'll write the company".
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.
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.
