it's not the Bosch I had installed 14 yrs ago, but it's the closest...

Summary: when our old Bosch suffered a fatal heart attack last week (ie., the washing cycle circuit board burned out), I was off to land us another super-quiet (80% of decision), fabulously-reliable (15%), and good looking (5%) replacement unit. That being said, I was to soon discover the landscape of the house appliance world had changed DRAMATICALLY. Since I'm known for my to the point reviews, here it is: 1. it's the quietest you'll buy, at any price 2.
Works great if you live in an imaginary kingdom with tiny dishes

Summary: This dishwasher does a fantastic job- dishes come out amazingly clean even without prerinsing and the operation is nearly silent. The condensation drying method is really nice. However, it turns out that this near silence comes at a price, because if a helpful toddler starts the dishwasher for you (which is remarkably easy for them to do), and you open the door without realizing it, the spray of soapy water will not only spray you in the face, but will cover your entire...
Summary: I decided on this dishwasher for my new home after reading reviews. The jenn Air which was in my last home was a more expensive dishwasher but this Bosch is far superior in every way. The silence while it runs is amazing! The cleaning is far better than any other dishwasher I have owned and/or used. I've owned 15 dishwashers over the years due to moving a lot!
Summary: This dishwasher has been a complete and total disappointment. Poorly designed, bottom rack falls out of dishwasher because of "gravity" weighted rollers and no secure track to guide them. Frequently clogs and will not operate. I have owned many dishwashers in my life and this is the WORST I have ever owned. I will never ever buy a Bosch product again.
Summary: Just replaced an older Frigidaire that ended up having the racks rust out. At more than 100 a rack, it would have cost about half the value of a new comp machine. Our kitchen is open to the den and the racket from the old machine was too loud. Bosch makes a great, quiet machine. So far it's tackled everything we have thrown into it. My only complaint is that it does not get the dishes dry without a drying aid.
Summary: Buy a bosch after researching reviews. Not all its cracked up to be. My old Kenmore did just as good a job and the racks were actually way more efficient. The Bosch looks sleek and is black to match my other appliances but I have to dry to tops of glasses and mugs because it doesn't. But my biggest compliant is the racks, they are laid out ineffectively and one section on the bottom doesn't hold anything but the baby's thin saucers. Pots and pans don't fit well either.
