Summary: We replaced our 15 year old Bosch with this unit. I both uninstalled the old one and installed this one. The weight of the new one is about half. Other than the stainless lining it's all plastic, plastic, plastic.
Summary: I purchased Bosch model SHX3AR75UC because of its ratings in Consumer Reports. I no longer have this model. After having problems with the bottom rack spray arm hitting the bottom rack when it's loaded with dishes, Bosch replaced the dishwasher.

Excerpt: My husband and I had to live with this Bosch Ascenta dishwasher for over a year. I am highly unsatisfied with its performance and wouldn't recommend it to anyone in the market for a new dishwasher.
Worst appliance I've ever owned; HATE this dishwasher
7 February 2015
Summary: This is the most disappointing appliance I've ever owned. We absolutely hate this dishwasher and are reminded of that fact every time we have to use it. Ours was shipped broken by the factory, but luckily our contractor was able to fix it.

Summary: Unit lacks a Rinse & Hold cycle, making it unacceptable for me, as that is the cycle I use 75% of the time. Buy the SHX4AT55UC instead. Or, if you want a fully stainless tub, go to a higher model.
Summary: BOSCH dishwashers do not have a heating element! If you want a dishwasher that actually has a mechanism to DRY your dishes, I would avoid BOSCH. I called BOSCH, and they are the ones who told me this.
