Summary: We purchased this Bosch dishwasher after our previous Bosch dishwasher finally died after working for 15 years...and that was typically a load everyday with a family of 3 growing boys. The installation of the new dishwasher was easier than the connections on the old one - the electrical, water supply and drain are all in the back of the new dishwasher. The electrical and water supply were in the front of the old Bosch.
Summary: (1) Dead Silent. Only 39 db ! So amazingly quiet that you have to listen very carefully to know that it is on. Great for parties or when quiet is needed (i.e. reading). (2) Bosch fixed a major problem. Older model used to have poor drying due to lack of heating element for drying. Bosch added a new cycle called Sterilization. This selectable cycle super heats the water during final rinse which greatly aids in drying of dishes.
Pros: Attractive Design, Cleans Well, Energy Efficient, Quiet, Simple Controls
Summary: This is the second Bosch dishwasher I have owned. My first is in the house we just sold. Had that one for 8+ years and hope to get the same service out of this one. I really like the top silverware tray. I use it for spatulas, scissors, big spoons and whatever else will fit flat. I had trepidations about 3 trays, but all my dishes come out clean, even those glass baking dishes that never seem to be clean. My water is soft enough that I do not use the built in softener.
Summary: "I just received this dishwasher this past week! It is absolutley fabulous! Worth every dollar!! If you have to wash your dishes this is the dishwasher I would tell you to buy! Believe me you get what you pay for! I wouldn't buy anything else now!
Pros: Love how quiet it is but the cleaning is the best of the best!
Summary: Got the Bosch SHE9ER55UC 800+ model late May. It has performed wonderfully thus far!!! I followed the directions, tested my water hardness(Bosch supplies a strip), used dishwasher salt and a rinse agent(researched and bought these prior to delivery). You literally cannot hear it running!! I had to put my ear to the door to hear it!! The level of clean is astounding!! No residue left on dishes and pots. I had no idea the old washer was just rinsing dishes with hot water!
