Summary: I had reservations of spending this much on a dishwasher but i'm glad I did. Our old one was so loud we could not run it when we were up and about. now we hardly know its running. If it were not for the light on the bottom to indicate it is on we would not know. it is easy to use and the dishes fit great. There is enough adjustment to the top tray to make room for anything we have to through at it or in it. The dishes come out clean, a lot cleaner then our old one.
Summary: We recently had to replace our LG dishwasher (do not every buy a LG if you can help it!) and completed a lot of research to find the right model. We even bought a kitchen aid and returned it because it was too loud and we couldn't again deal with a dishwasher we didn't like. I've waited to do this review before I really got to know this machine and we love it! This dishwasher is quiet but is not so quiet that you cannot hear it.
Summary: I have had this dishwasher for 6 months and so far I love it. I did not have the money for the "silent" model, but I am very happy with the 50 dB model. My kitchen opens up to the family room and I can watch TV with the dishwasher running.
Summary: Due to the low water use of this machine it won't clean very well and will leave detergent residue on everything . We have had to rewash frequently or else everything smells pretty bad. We have used the recomended products but it still is a lousey washer. Saving water and energy is a good thing but we spend more recleaning everything so it's a waste of money and time.
Summary: We purchased this only 7 months ago, and it has been repaired three times already, replacing the circuit board, adding a stabilizer bar, etc., and just continues to malfunction, stopping mid cycle, or running continuously with one minute left.
Summary: I've been through GE, Maytag, Whirlpool ... none of the models worked well for our family (food residue and "crystalized deposits" left on upper shelf glasses, etc). We just purchased the Bosch SHE3AR72UC unit from Lowe's. We installed it ourselves. The first wash was with a completely full silverware tote, 3 day old caked on plates in every slot, and 3 day old dirty glasses, some of which were worse after being washed by the previous brand we had. Voila ...
Summary: Do not buy the hype. Bosch makes terrible dishwashers. This one is loud, does not clean well, and is not of good quality. This dishwasher started having electrical problems after 15 months. It stopped working completely after 18 months. Six visits from two Bosch "certified" technicians sent by the company later, no one could find or fix the problem despite replacing practically every part available.
Summary: Purchased this item because of the Bosch Name. Purchased 10-01-2010 and it was dead after only 14 months. Bosch states 2 year parts warrenty ( but becasue the Modle sticker in the door fell off there is not was for the service personal to put in the claim for parts) So I had the choice of paying for trip fee parts and labor on a 14 month old DIshwasher this is not good customer service nor is this a quality product.
Cons: Low quality, Not durable, product quality, custome service
