Summary: We've purchased Bosch appliances for the quality reputation; however, I echo the reviews commenting on the poor customer service and add to that a website that is difficult to navigate. It makes me wonder if a company is actually of high quality when the rep is rude.
Summary: "This is a pricey machine but blissfully quiet, sort of sounds like it might be raining outside. No more assault on the senses if we can not be outside the house when the dishwasher needs to run. Cleans superbly in half the time of other dishwashers.
Summary: "This Bosch 800 Series Dishwasher has received mixed reviews from customers online. The machine received high marks on style and efficiency but was criticized for needing a specific detergent/drying aid combo to clean effectively. Most everyone noted that the unit ran quietly.
Summary: My main consideration in buying this Bosch is that I wanted a quiet dishwasher. I just went down the list of Consumer Reports ratings and stopped when I got to excellent for noise. In 2006, I remodeled a kitchen and purchased a Kenmore Elite that CR said was Very Good for noise. It wasn't. In the last 10 years I have lived in three separate small houses and owned four dishwashers.
Summary: "Product looks great; easy to use; lots of great features; nice programming features on display panel; has 2 panels so controls are hidden, but still can see current status of dishwasher; very quiet; "
Summary: can't explain what happened the first couple cycles. timer was acting right and the washer wasn't completing cycles. may have been something i was doing. then everything went perfectly, and haven't had a hiccup since. it has flexibility to handle just about anything you want to put in it, and gets it all clean with ease. it is really quiet, just maybe not as much as advertised, they do have another tier quieter than this.
Summary: I just bought one of these last week & tried to install it last night. The machine fit in the hole but it did not fit my drain. I have a Johnson-T drain. This means my dishwasher drains through a pipe that sits behind the dishwasher instead of draining through the disposal. It is much quieter with a Johnson-T drain. Ended up taking the machine back to Lowes. Bummer.
Summary: The interior is smaller than my previous dishwahser and I have to think sometimes how to add larger pots because of the racks. HOWEVER, my prior dishwasher was prone to burst into flames upon use so this is much improved. It was a little complicated to install because the water line connection is on the front of the washer instead of the back but this should make it easier to repair. We had to go back to lowes to get some additional hook up parts.
