Excerpt: After having compared many dishwashers, I made my decision based on its specification on Sears website. After I received Bosch dishwasher, I found that the bottom of tub is not stainless steel. Very disappointed. By the way, it works well.
Excerpt: Cleans everything, I can not believe how good this dishwasher is. There are some complainers out there about this dishwasher saying 3 things.
1) The bottom rack comes off the rails easily. True. This has happened to me once and then I realized how it works and stopped being a knob about it and it hasn't happened since. Next.
2) There is no element and no drying cycle. Seriously, who uses a drying cycle. The dishes are dry from the hot water in minutes. Next.
Summary: It is a great unit and washes well, and is very very quiet. However, I've noticed several flaws with the unit, compare to my Samsung and Whirlpool dishwashers in my rentals. I hate the rack design, and find it useless for mixing pots, plates, bowls etc. It seems, it is only good for plates! Now for the issue. My unit is experiencing that the "Float Fail Save" issue, where a design flaw seems to trigger the safety.
Pros: Washes Very well, Very Quiet
Cons: Poor Rack Design, Hard to Pit Pots and Plates Together
Summary: I absolutely love my new Bosch dishwasher. It is so quiet you have to be standing right beside it to hear it running. It looks really good and dishes are always clean. I would recommend this Bosch dishwasher as you will not be disappointed.

Summary: Installation was quite straightforward with no surprises. When I ran the first cycle with the dishwasher empty, I was somewhat displeased since it seemed to make almost as much noise as my old 2006 Inglis junk dishwasher. But when we ran a full load of dishes, it was much quieter; I suppose all the spraying action in an empty dishwasher exacerbated any noise...once we installed the additional sound installation and kick plate, it was even quieter.
Summary: We just purchased and installed this dishwasher and it has been phenomenal. It's very quiet, easy to use and the look is clean and sleek. I love having the hidden controls so my little kids aren't touching them all and accidentally running the dishwasher. My dishes (glass, metal, plastic) have been coming out clean and very dry! We can stack a ton of dishes in there and they always come out clean and dry.
Summary: I purchased this dishwasher to replace my three year old Lg after the drain pump stopped working. It's bottom of the line Bosch but it's still a Bosch. Cons: Can't adjust the one rear foot from the front (which I could do with my Lg). No front display so you don't know how long is left on the cycle. Bottom of the tub is not stainless steel. Found it to be louder than my Lg. Bottom rack is not on a track so it falls out. The racks are kinda flimsy.
Summary: Super quiet. It does a good job cleaning the dishes. Reasonable value for the price. I would have rated it higher except for the ease if adjusting the top rack is not as convenient as other models on the market. Issue 2- the Lower rack cost 2 points off a 5 out of 5. It constantly keeps jumping out of the tracks and when loading you must distribute the load evenly or it will pop out of the track.
Summary: Bought this dishwasher Aug 29/13. When you pull out the bottom rack it comes off the track. Called Bosch after about a month. They sent a new bottom rack and it was installed by their representative. This did not fix the problem. They indicated it was not the rack but a design flaw.I was told by the rep that Bosch said they would have a remedy for this problem by the end of Jan/14. As far as cleaning dishes it does an excellent job.
