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.
Summary: Don't buy this dishwasher. Check it out in the store. To open, you have to pull on the outer plastic door that's shaped as a handle. You can tell it was not engineered very well. I did not realize it until I got it home and can tell the handle is a high stress part.
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.
Summary: First a drain failure, then it started progressively getting louder, and now the door latch is broken. I don't like that you just pull the door to unlatch, there should be a handle of some sort. I researched and spent a lot of money for this dishwasher hoping for the best - I am not satisified!
Summary: This dishwasher is great for what we wanted. Replaced a cheap GE dw that the builder installed that had rusted racks (PVC coated wire) and bad control panel. So we wanted a better brand / higher end model. This Bosch dw has excellent flexibility in loading since it has fold down racks.
Summary: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dishwasher. After thoroughly reviewing the reviews of dishwashers online we purchased this dishwasher and are very happy that we did! We love everything about it. Don't let the fact that it doesn't have a heating element in it stop you from buying it.
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this product and I definitely made a good decision with this dishwasher. It cleans incredibly well and I it's running because its so quiet. I'm glad that I paid a little extra for this model because the adjustable tines make loading dishes much more efficient...
