Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Super Quiet, Cleans Great, Does Not Dry

Submitted by Justin - 12/30/2018

The new dishwasher is super quiet and cleans well. My only complaint is the lack of drying. It leaves the silverware wet and about half the stuff on the top rack. Never had this problem with the old one.

Submitted by Mister J - 12/11/2018

I bought the dishwasher April 2016. So far, I've had no problems. I really like that the dishwasher is very quiet. The dishwasher has met my expectations.

Does not clean clear glass-leaves rinse stains

Submitted by Fewleft1993 - 12/7/2017

Impressed by its quiet operation and friend's recommendations, we shopped exclusively for a BOSCH Dishwasher when we did our kitchen remodel in 2016. Just a few months after installation, and continuing today, it leaves visible rinse stains on clear glass drinking glasses and bowls. We have followed numerous recommendations on rinse agents, exclusive use of factory recommended brand of wash and rinse products, run empty cycles to flush, changed hot water tank temperature higher, even turned off our water softener for several weeks, however the problem has not gone away. It stands to reason the same film/ contamination is on the other dishware in the unit, just masked due to their colors or glaze.We wipe every item before we put it away-makes the dish washing task more labor intensive than every...isn't the idea of installing a dishwasher to make things more convenient?

EXTRMELY quiet

Submitted by Radar - 5/20/2017

Works very well, very quiet, but I feel the normal wash cycle is a bit too long and (at times), dishes are not completely cleaned. Otherwise, I'd consider another Bosch appliance.

Submitted by Carma - 5/16/2017

First few washes it did not appear to dry- had a stinky smell. After about 10 washes I LOVE my dishwasher. Cleans very well and would highly recommend the Bosch. I like the variety of ways to load and the flexibility of the top rack. Just a great dishwasher. Still beautiful on inside and out!

So quiet

Submitted by Mary M - 3/31/2017

Bought this as a replacement (not Bosch) for a 15-year-old dishwasher. The new Bosch dishwasher is superior in every way, but especially very quiet. It does an excellent job in every way. Couldn't ask for more!!

Dependable, Cleans Well, and easy to install.

Submitted by Paul55 - 3/29/2017

I have several rental properties and always put in Bosch dishwashers because of their reliability, dependability and they are easy to install. I of course have one in my own home too. Very quite and dishes come out clean every time. Made in USA and worth every penny.

Shiny, Clean, Spotless!

Submitted by Bets - 3/27/2017

I am very pleased with this dishwasher. The dishes come out clean, shiny and spotless. It is practically silent and I have to check to see if it is even on. There are a number of different cycles and options to customize the wash, all work well. One improvement I would suggest is to cut down on the time it takes to run a normal cycle. Seems long. All in all, I am very happy with my new dishwasher.

Some Problems

Submitted by Disappointed41 - 3/19/2017

I have never had a dishwasher that was always wet on the inside; top, sides, bottom and door, after using Rinse and/or Wash. I cannot get used to the fact that the puddles in the bottom might sprout mold at some point. Have had several dishwashers, but never this problem. It is a point of stress for me. Dishes seem clean though; but they should be!

Great but disappointing

Submitted by MTJG - 3/18/2017

Bought this 3 months ago. Cleans great and very quiet, but the tines make placing dishes a challenge. Pots and pans are especially difficult. I wash more by hand now than I did before. Also the tub holds odors unless dishes are washed at least every other day.

Very impressed, and pleased

Submitted by Papa Pete - 3/8/2017

We purchased our Bosch and are very happy with the quality of cleanliness. The super quiet operation allows us to visit in our dining room without hearing the noise, as we did with the Blomberg. The service men note how easy it was to install, with all the correct lines and materials attached to the unit.

Amazing cleaning power and quiet

Submitted by Bouncedancer - 2/5/2017

The old Bosch died after 20 years, so mom-in-law and I wouldn't consider any other brand. I LOVE this one -- it has HUGE capacity. Shhhh, I triple-load it -- with pots and pans perched on top of the dishes and lids floating on top of that. Big metal bowls over a row of cereal bowls. You get the idea -- usually every square inch is used -- I just make sure nothing is squished or in danger of getting chipped. Of course I am careful that the spray arm has free play. This probably goes against every rule in the handbook, and for this to work, I keep the filter immaculately clean. I bought a spare cylindrical mesh filter from this website so I can wash a dirty filter in the dishwasher and always use a spanking clean filter for each load. It's really amazing -- EVERYTHING comes out clean: crusted-on dishes (I do let them soak in the sink till I load them in the dishwasher right before I run it), pots on the top shelf, bottles on the bottom, glasses in the far corners -- there seems to be no bad spot. Like other reviewers, it's so quiet that we've accidentally opened the door, not knowing it was running.

Dishes are not clean

Submitted by paulak58 - 2/1/2017

Our third Bosch, not long lasting but always cleaned super. This new one does not. Egg still stuck, sticky food on dishes that did not have that product on when they went in, very disappointing. Have switched from "cube" type soap packets to the pouches and seems a bit better. Quiet though...so it does not disturb while you Rewash the items that didn't get clean in prior cycle

Quiet Machine

Submitted by miker - 12/12/2016

Purchased this machine in April 2015. It by far the quietest dishwasher we have owned. It does a great job of washing, rinsing and drying. We have had no problems with it. Would certainly recommend it to any one that is in the market for a dishwasher.

We're so pleased with this purchase. It's our first Bosch appliance and are happy with the QUALITY! It's easy to use, and is so quiet. Dishes come out super clean and dry.

It's so quiet I can barely tell that it's running.

Submitted by warriorpriestess - 8/18/2016

It's so quiet I have to look at the control panel to make sure it's running. The baskets that hold the dishes are designed well and hold a LOT of dishes. As an added plus, there's enough space for tall items, such as pitchers. Even the top rack has enough height to place wine glasses. I love the controls, which are easy and simple to use, yet offer a wide variety of cleaning options.

SUPER QUIET WITH A GREAT WASH!!

Submitted by Ronie - 6/24/2016

I had a 10 year old Bosch dishwasher that I loved but after a remodel decided for a newer model thinking it would be the same wonderful machine. My new dishwasher is even BETTER!! Super quiet, and I can fit A LOT more!! Since my kitchen is next to my family room it is important not to have our conversations drowned out by a dishwasher; our guests are amazed when I tell them it is on. THANKS BOSCH for making such a quiet and reliable machine.

We had a Bosch Dishwasher in our previous house, and I was not disappointed when the dishwasher in our condo broke down because it gave me a good reason to buy a Bosch. This is the quietest machine. I always have to check to make sure I turned it on. The dishes come out clean AND sanitized. This machine also holds more dishes and I love it!

Submitted by BDuB - 4/5/2016

Installation was a little different than the old, but the directions seemed to cover everything in easy steps. Loading it was different as well but it holds so much more than my old dishwasher did and everything got so clean after sitting in the sink waiting for the new one to arrive overnight. I am in love with the design of the buttons and the easy to follow settings.

LOVE IT! I'LL NEVER GO TO ANOTHER BRAND

Submitted by kellymq - 3/20/2016

Our GE dishwasher broke down after a few years of operation. Our repairman mentioned the Bosch Dishwasher to us and I looked it up on Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports gave it a great rating, but I will go above and beyond their rating. It's quiet, it uses 1/2 the detergent that my GE used, and it gets everything spotlessly clean. It is an amazing dishwasher and I tell all my friends that ask to pay the money for this dishwasher because it's worth every cent. In fact, we are building a new house and I can guarantee it will be Bosch Appliances in there.

Submitted by Panor - 3/2/2016

Just passed our 1 month anniversary with using this dishwasher. Nothing negative to say about it. Sleek looking with the protected recessed control panel that has bright red LED lights you can see from across the room. No more squinting at pale green light dots to see if it's finished! Clean, clear glasses every time out. Loading simple, logical and everything is really clean and shiny when finished. Super quiet too. Appreciate the estimated time for the cycle showing on the front panel. Never have heard or seen that little bonus before.

mighty silent cleaner

Submitted by Lotsofexperience - 2/28/2016

This machine is typical of the new breed of dishwashers on the market in that it takes much longer to clean (2&1/2 hours in the AUTO/SANITIZE mode), but does a much better job than the "old type" machines. It's quiet & efficient & once you learn how to load it with your array of dishes it allows more of a load for each use.The Jet Dry reminder feature is probably good as I'm sure it adds to the overall cleaning. I never used it on my old machine, but the glassware in particular, never came out as shiny as now. I must say, it was a good purchase on my part.

Purchased product a week ago after previous 10 year old dishwasher became too annoying. We were referred to the brand by a friend who also has a dishwasher by Bosch. I installed product myself and was pleasantly surprised at the ease of installation. By having a new junction box and extra long cables and water supply hoses provided the install was a snap.My 13 year old daughter did most of the installation. I am in the automotive field and utilize many Bosch products.It is evident quality and thoughtful engineering are shared along company lines
