I would not recommend this model to any one unless I wanted to drive them crazy!!

Summary: I bought this the middle of April and have had a lot of problems with it. At first I blamed my self, bought new dishwashing pods. Added boosters to it and so forth. The door would pop open at odd times of the wash. Completely stopping and since it is supposed to be quiet, I wouldnt always catch it.
Summary: I bought this dishwasher on the recommendation of Consumer Reports. It cleans dishes fine. However, should you be so much of a cook that you actually use a pot or pan, this dishwasher will not help you. It is nearly impossible to fit pans in this machine.
Summary: This is the worst dishwasher I have ever owned. It does not turn off after cleaning a load. And unless you have perfectly flat plates, your dishes will not fit. I can NOT do 1 day's worth of dishes in 1 load. It takes 3 loads of the dishwasher to clean 2 days of dishes for 2 adults and 2 children.
Excerpt: After many months of research, I selected Bosch as a manufacturer, and then a couple of weeks on actual model selection. I confess, I had always bought GE, while there products are great, this was just better.The look, noise level (what noise), easy use, easy loading and unloading, perfectly clean...
Summary: I bought this Bosch because of its high rating in Consumer Reports. I was replacing a Kenmore that I had never liked and wanted something of high quality. One of the problems I had with the Kenmore was that the dishes sometimes didn't get clean.
Summary: We're remodeling our Kitchen, and the existing dishwasher was very old with a few cracks in the door, so we replaced it. Although this is a straightforward DIY project, we had a few complications from tile work (floor and countertop) by a previous owner.
Summary: My 15-year old Bosch SMU 4000 died, and the research on a popular consumer site said that the top 8 dishwashers were Bosch (including this model). I also trust the reviews on Amazon, and was surprised to see the low ratings of the Bosch dishwashers.
