Terrible it is so loud
We bought our dishwasher two months ago and ever since we turned it on it is made a terrible sound. We have tried many different cycles and for some reason it sounds like a helicopter every 3 to 5 minutes. We’ve had someone come look at it and it still makes the same sound very disappointed would never buy one again. It’s a real pity because we only bought it because on the front it says super silence 44DB definitely not.

This dishwasher is easy to use and cleans well. We scrape the food off items before putting them in but don't need to rinse or scrub them. We follow the maintenance instructions of cleaning the dishwasher and filter regularly, and we haven't had any issues with clogging. Also, it's a very quiet dishwasher, and we can barely tell when it's running.
The cultery drawer at the top saved a fair bit of space at the bottom for larger items, but it also sometimes gets in the way of tall items in the middle rack. This can be worked around by adjusting ...the height of the middle rack, though. The main problems with this dishwasher are metal items come out with rust spots on them, and several items come out a bit wet and need to be dried by hand. Good dishwasher overall!

Worked alright for first few months but now 12 months in its terrible
My previous Bosch dishwasher lasted 6.5 years, which wasn't terrible but wasn't awesome, but worked fairly reliably until the end when water got into the motor and killed it. I bought another Bosch based on favourable internet reviews. It is the second worst appliance I have ever bought. We rinse all our really dirty dishes before putting them in the machine so as not to clog the filters, but having said that if you dont pull the filter out every 1-2 weeks and clean it the machine starts acting up. The problem we have now is the tablet isn't di...ssolving and ending up in the front of the top rack undissolved. Dishes are coming out as dirty or worse than they went in. Glasses come out absolutely filthy on the outside where we need to scrub them with a brush (even with glass mode on). Drying performance is mediocre (we use Finish rinse aid at all times). The tablet not dissolving and the machine not cleaning almost at all now is the final straw. This machine is 1 year old and typically used once a day. I'll never buy another Bosch dishwasher again. It's a pity because the Bosch Cordless drill I have (10+years old) and the Bosch washing machine (13 years old) work flawlessly. Avoid.

Love this! Works great!
Love this dishwasher. Bought from Bing Lee for the version with the cutlery draw. Amazing sparkling clean glasses and cutlery. Fits so much in it due to plate holders you can lay down and adjustable draw height. I also put a large frying pan and wooden cutting board in. Haven’t needed to use the large item spray fitting with the draw removed.Very quiet on auto. 60 min a little noisier as it is spraying harder.

Best dishwasher we've ever had.
A few years ago I rented a house that had and LG dishwasher with a seperate tray for cutlery. I thought this was such a good feature as it frees up a lot of room. Fast forward a couple of years, and I renovated my own kitchen using only Bosch appliances. But before I review the Bosch version, some dishwasher history..
My first dishwasher was a Vulcan from the '70's. It sounded like a jet engine but could clean the chrome of a towball. It died and was replaced by a Fisher and Paykel two drawer. Whilst the idea of having two drawers was great, it...
Bosch has to be one of my fav dish washers. Very quiet and cleans the dishes perfectly. Lots of features depends on how fast and how deep clean you want to set it. 3 levels with lots of space for all the dishes and cutleries

Bosch has now fixed my problem with the dishwasher so am I now a happy customer. Thank you Bosch! Machine now performs perfectly. I will now purchase a Bosch washing machine!

Great example of a dishwasher as they should be - well designed and quiet
We sold our Miele with our previous house and had the misfortune of having a Fisher & Paykel in the house we purchased. Thank goodness I had the oppurtunity to dispose of that and get a replacement. This time we opted for Bosch which was very similar design to the previous Miele but a better price point. Certainly living up to expectation....love the cutlery rack (note a cutlery basket also provided but that lives unused in the cupboard) and ability to adjust rack height and layout. Exceptional easy access to filters and also features 'machine ...clean' mode. Wine glass basket provided as standard (again lives in the cupboard as our glasses are not machine was suitable). Overall fantastic machine - easy to use, great layout/design, exceptionally quiet while in use and also VERY WATER EFFICIENT. Important when you are on tank water....added bonus of ability to assess wash requirement during wash cycle. Recommended.

Bought his as we had a Bosch unit that lasted 15 years previously. Very quiet and cleans the dishes perfectly. Love all the features, especially the adjustable middle drawer position and the movable cutlery holder. Great build quality. The most amazing thing was it cleaned a pyrex glass baking pan that looked new when the cycle had finished! Years of hand washing couldn't get it that clan.
Questions & Answers
Hi. We installed our new dishwasher yesterday. I have a query about 'rinse aid'. The 'One Hour' wash lasts one hour but the '29 Minute' wash lasts 44 minutes. It is always 29 minutes plus 15 minutes for rinse aid. I have turned off the 'refill the rinse aid light' and that does not help. Are all these dishwashers like this or is there something wrong with mine? Thanks.
Hi Mary B.
Thank you for your question. Rinse aid is required for the quick wash to operate within 29 minutes. If it is not used the dishwasher will recognise that a tablet is being used without rinse aid and the program duration will change to 44 minutes. This is because a tablet will not fully dissolve within 29 minutes, and so it would result in sub-optimal wash results. The rinse aid component requires more time to dissolve, hence if rinse aid liquid is used the dishwasher will use this instead and pump out the water containing the undissolved rinse aid tablet particles. If would like to speak with someone about this, please feel free to call our team on 1300 369 744 (select option 2), and we'll be happy to discuss the matter further with you. Kind regards Bosch Home Australia.
Thank you very much. Mary
I did as you suggested but the Rinse Aid just seems to pour out the other side of the compartment. What am I not doing correctly?
Hi. Have a new Dishwasher. All good with the install and operation. I have an installation with the legs at the maximum. The stainless kick board plate is too short/ small to be flush with the floor. I have contacted bosch and they don't have varied sizes to purchase!!! A tad annoyed that they state they do.
