Summary: This is the worst dishwasher I have ever had in 40 years of buying them. Dishes are not clean even after it's very extensive wash cycles. It is not the water or the detergent or any of those things. The only thing you can say is it is pretty quiet.
Excerpt: Love my Bosch dishwasher. Quiet. I run it at night when everyone is sleeping, hasn't disturbed anyone like the last no name one I had.Noise LevelQuiet Quiet QuietCleaning TimeNever had a dirty dish come out!
Summary: I bought my Bosch model SHE55M16UC about three years ago at the recommendation of a high rating from Consumer Reports. Nine days after the one year labor warranty expired the cheap plastic control panel broke off when opening the door one morning spilling the buttons all over the kitchen floor.
Excerpt: Compared to our last, unrated and cheap dishwasher, the Bosch is better, but I still only rate it satisfactory. It has a lot of flaws. I think the overall design is poor -- as if it was made with no forethought and so it wouldn't last as long as you'd expect something so expensive would.
Excerpt: This is the quietest dishwasher that I have ever been around. The fact that the heating element is not exposed allows me to load anything anywhere it it. I can put items that are usually only top rack safe anywhere in it. I can put plastic storage in both top and bottom.
Excerpt: This was the dishwasher that was in our house when we bought it. It works ok for us. I do notice sometimes there is a sort of film left behind on the dishes. It fits quite a bit in it. We are a family of four and I run it every night, so I think a full days worth of dishes is pretty good.
Excerpt: I LOVE this dishwasher. It is the first dishwasher that I can honestly say that about. It was and is worth every penny. It even heats it's own water!! It works perfect every time and is whisper quiet. I can actually stand next to it while it is running and have a phone conversation!
Summary: Have had this less than a week. Out of the box, the end of cycle alert didn't work. Will have a repair person take a look/see. I have to say, this is the best dishwasher I've ever had. It is extremely quiet. The glasses come out sparkling and it does a fantastic job on dishes.
Summary: I am very happy with this dishwasher. We were going to get a step down from this one because I didn't want to spend to much, but we got a good deal on this one at Lowe's. I am in heaven with this dishwasher as I run a busy household of 6. So, several loads a day are in my schedule.
Pros: High quality, Durable, cleans, thorough, everything!
Summary: Have been using for about a week. The previous reviews pretty much sum it up--incredibly quiet; gets dishes very clean; getting dishes dry even without rinse aid (except plastic, which is pretty typical). And yes, tines are very close together on racks and loading drives me nuts.
