Summary: In January 2007 I bought a model similar to this one. It had a three-year warranty. At three years and six months, the control board died. I have now learned that owning a Bosch is like owning a Mercedes: only authorized repair centers can work on a Bosch, so one can't call just any repairperson--they cannot get the parts.
Summary: With this product Bosch is trashing its quality reputation. We had a model SHU5315UC for 10 years. It worked like a charm, quiet as a teakettle and only gave off a slight 'hiss' that you couldn't hear 10 feet away. Unfortunately two off the pushbuttons went -- after 10 years no issue -- so we decided to replace with the equivalent model. This is the one we got. Once it was installed and we ran it we couldn't beleive how loud it is -- yet it rates quiter than the old one!
Summary: This dishwasher came with the house. We've lived with it for about 18 months and are thoroughly unimpressed. Initially we were excited about having a name-brand Bosch dishwasher. It seems like everyone wants one and everyone says they are "the best". For whatever reason, ours just doesn't do a good job cleaning the dishes. It's nice and quiet, but at the end of the day, we need it to clean the dishes.
Summary: The best dishwasher we ever had. No Problems at all, very quiet. You can put anything into the dishwasher no matter how dirty it is. Everything is clean. Other Dishwashers like Kenmore, Whirlpool have no chance against Bosch. You will not regret it.
Summary: Worked very nicely in the initial period, but now the seal is broken and the dishwasher is loud and leaks underneath. Bosch wants upwards of 200 dollars to repair. I'd suggest a more reliable company that stands behind their quality.
Summary: This dishwasher is very quiet and does a good job of washing the dishes. It is supposed to be very energy efficient, however I can't seem to get as many dishes in a load as my old dishwasher. What good is energy efficient if you have to do more loads to do the same number of dishes? Part of the problem is the rack design. Try as I might, I can't get the best use of the space the dishwasher has. The plates just don't line up right. I hope that they redesign the racks.
Summary: I purchased a Bosch dishwasher after reading a good review in Consumer Reports. This is an awful machine, the no disposal feature that offers quieter running allows food to collect in the filter and even though I clean it every time it runs still food residue appears on the dishes. My old dishwasher worked like a champ, no special detergent or temperature problems just nice clean dishes. I wish when it died I had just had the motor replaced.
Summary: I did extensive reviews of dishwashers and narrowed it down to Kenmore or Bosch. I'm really glad I got the Bosch. It does a great job of cleaning the dishes (no pre-rinsing needed) and is VERY quiet. The two concerns noted elsewhere on the internet (small capacity and no drying element) are not an issue for me. I live in AZ (i.e. low humidity) and the dishes come out pretty dry.
Summary: Well as of now my review of this item is very low, as it is not working. It arrived late, then the hook up was done and it is not working. I called Bosch and they said (flippantly and with no apology whatsoever) that it was broken - this after they had me push a sequence of buttons to determine the problem. I now have to wait another week to get a Bosch technician here. We shall see, but I'm not too happy at this point.
