Excerpt: This is awful - who knew it was so small inside? The little top shelf is only for cooking spoons (who cares?) and you can't put even a small bowl up there. If you put in pots, there is no room for large plates. The top shelf doesn't hold that many cups and the bottom only holds a few dinner plates. Don't buy this. It's expensive and frustrating! I didn't think the depth was shorter than my previous dishwasher -- thought they all are the same. Too late for me!
Pros: Cleans Well, Quiet, Quiet - But Who Cares, Simple Controls
Cons: Awkward Loading, Doesn't Dry Well, Doesn't Hold Enough, Like A Jigsaw Puzzle, Petit Top Tray Is Useless, Requires 2 Loads Per Meal, So Sorry I Bought This, Too Short Interior
Summary: Our last dishwasher was a KitchenAid and was amazing! We loved everything about it until it started falling apart. When it finally died, we went through 6 months of researching dishwashers to get the best one for us for our budget. Time and time again, we were recommended Bosch by friends and strangers alike as a really good brand. All of the reviews we read were great, so we went ahead. I've never been so disappointed! Mostly because of the layout of the racks.
Summary: I've owned this dishwasher over three months now and have only good things to say about it. I'm going to attempt to cover all aspects on this dishwasher and address issues some people have had. This dishwasher replaced a 10 year old Whirlpool. I had many of the same cycles on my Whirlpool as this does, except the half load cycle. My silverware basket attached to the door, so I had plenty of room in the bottom rack for dishes and plates.
Bosch has no customer service if appliance has a problem

Summary: I have had this dishwasher installed for 3 weeks and it had an E:20 error code and stopped working. Bosch has only 2 warranty service companies in Austin TX so wait for service all is days or a week. Then Texas distribution center in Dallas is not stocked with parts so parts shipment is a week to Dallas then to Austin so 2 weeks to attempt repair.
Summary: "This dishwasher has saved me a lot of money. Aside from all the energy star related stuff, there's also the detergent tray. I tend to have some detergent left over each time I use the dishwasher which I leave for the next time.
Summary: "This dishwasher is a vast improvement compared to my previous one. The timer is extremely helpful since I no longer have to remember the time it started. The delay start timer is great as well. I can set it the night before and set it so that it ends right when I get home.
