Rated 2 out of 5 by from Whines, somewhat broken in only 3 monthsThe unit lets out a high, annoying, tonal noise when heating water. It's horrible. The panel operates nothing like the manual to set up the options like Intensive Drying and Auto Power Off (When I press and hold the "A" button and then press "Start", the display indicates H:00, not d:0x). The manual for the unit is NOT online, instead they have two installation . The design of the interior is bad. I would love the third rack if the unit was made to accommodate typical pint glasses. The only way I can fit them in the unit is to remove the fold-down rack and put them on the right-most aisle. I'd love to use that fold-down rack on the left side, but I can't because Bosch failed to put a single piece of wire that would have let me use the rack there. I've bought 3 Bosch in 12 years .... doesn't seem like the greatest track record, does it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quiet, Spotless and Dry Glassware!This is our 2nd Bosch dishwasher and was acquired as part of a major kitchen gut and re-do. We needed this "panel-ready" unit and the three year old Bosch unit it replaced was sold to a member of the remodeling team. Choosing Bosch was really a no brainer based on our experience with the first one. We love this dishwasher's LED-lighted interior, its unbelievable quietness and most of all how spot free and dry the dishes are when you open the door in the morning. You may hear complaints from owners who wish it had an integral food disposal but come on, that's probably one of the major reasons it is so incredible quiet! We use the disposal in our sink. That's what IT'S for. A dishwasher is to WASH you dishes and this Bosch certainly excels at doing that. Thank you Bosch for engineering a very satisfying experience and a great dishwasher!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet!I am very happy that we used all Bosch appliances for our new home. The dishwasher is whisper quiet. If it wasn't for the super cool light that projects on the floor, I wouldn't know it was running!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher!Our kitchen was just completed, and we have started using the dishwasher - it is so much better than any we have owned in the past. It actually gets things clean, with our super-hard water, and is sooo quiet. Super appliance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent Bosch dishwasherThis is my and my wife's third home and our third Bosch dishwasher. The dishwasher is very quiet as I've come to expect from Bosch and cleans exceptionally well. It is the first time we've used a panel ready model but it installed very well and blends in great with the cabinets. The third rack is a great space saver as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Efficient and effective!Living in California it's more important than ever to conserve water. Our new Bosch dishwasher is so much more weather efficient than or old one. This machine is so quiet, you don't hear it until the cycle is compile and it beeps. The icing on the cake is how great it washes!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Few IssuesBest thing is super quiet, you cannot tell if it is on except for the light at bottom. Cons - There are many. Cycles are long. The express cycle does not clean well enough even for a small load. I have to use the 'heavy" cycle which is 2 hours and 15 minutes. You MUST thoroughly rinse everything. Scraping is not enough. Food particles end up on the glasses & mugs on top rack. Also it will not work properly without rinse aid. This does not seem to be an option, you must use it. Overall very disappointed.
