Summary: We bought this Bosch (she55m15uc/61) to replace a Bosch we had for 10 years. Since the review from Consumer Reports was good and the last Bosch was so good I gladly paid $1000. Worst purchase ever. The pump went out, then leaked and damaged the floor. We replaced the pump ($380) and it broke again 3 months later. I won't buy a Bosch again- this one was a very nice looking, quiet, piece of crap. i just replaced this with a different brand and I hope it is more reliable.
Summary: We purchased this dishwasher new, having owned a Bosch for 6 years prior to selling our home and having to leave it with the new owners. It was such a great machine I went ahead and purchased another Bosch. BIG MISTAKE. The machine didn't clean right from the beginning- things stunk like rotten eggs. I would clean the filter basket and still have residue on the dishes and glasses. Then it would just sit on 1 minute and keep running and running.
Summary: The door handle is not really a handle, but just curved area where you pull to open door. It is the plastic part across the top front where the buttons are located. The major flaw is that over time, four years for us, it cracks in both directions. You likely won't see the cracks until they get long because they are under the bottom edge, in both directions from handle area. Costs $130 for the cheap plastic part, called facia panel.
Summary: We purchased a unit in the same series four years ago (SHE55M05UC) . The control system looks the same. The entire control came off in peices this morning. I called Bosch and talked to Gabby. She stated that I could purchase a replacement control unit or have a repairman come and replace it. This is an expensive unit to only last for four years.
