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.
Excerpt: You have to literally put your ear down by the door of this dishwasher to hear it when it's running through cycles! Since this has no drying element, it is great to be able to load plastics on top and bottom rack. The one tiny complaint is some of the tines on the bottom rack are in an awkward direction, making it hard to fit certain dishes in that area. However, this is not a BIG deal and is worth overlooking with the quietness and cleanliness of dishes after washing!
Pros: Attractive Design, Cleans Well, Easy To Load, Energy Efficient, Quiet, Simple Controls
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.
Summary: "I have a lot of dishes daily so I needed a dishwasher with more space compared to my old one. This one works great. Lots of space, the additional flexibility of the third rack is a great plus.
