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

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. 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.

Quiet, Works Well, Tight Fit

My New Bosch 6/28/2022

My Bosch works well, drying the dishes properly. My dishes are pretty normal... small bowls, dishes, larger bowls, glasses but I struggle a bit to find the right spot for them. Bosch does provide ideas on how to stack which is good.

It took 3 months to get the dishwasher we wanted, but it was well worth the wait! It holds more dishes than our old dishwasher, it's amazingly quiet and, best of all, everything comes out dry and sparkling clean.

Boschoff 4/29/2022

Excellent for an "entry level" dishwasher. Quieter than my old machine. Does excellent job of cleaning dishes. Only complaint is setup of racks - tines are so close in some areas that unless it is a flat plate, the dish won't fit.

Problem with door latch

Janne 4/28/2022

Bought new dishwasher at local appliance store. The door latch was wonky and after 2 weeks it stopped latching and dishwasher stopped working. New latch was ordered and 3 months later am still waiting on repairman to come make repair next week. Hoping it works and dishwasher cycles properly. Frustrating.

Great dishwasher

Shem 4/20/2022

I'm not writing this for a chance to win anything. I truely love this dishwasher. I seldom write reviews because products rarely exceed my expectations. This Bosch dishwasher cleans my dishes spotless. Even the plastic wear that had the red spaghetti sauce haze has cleaned. The door is a bit hard to pull down, but the machine itself has a solid feel to it.

100 Series Dishwasher

TamK 3/28/2022

This machine replaced a Maytag that I had for over 30 years and was quite happy with. Since there are only 2 of us, I felt no need to go for the whistles and bells on the fancier machines. I load it nightly after rinsing the dishes and run it once a week. The drawer and silverware cups feel cheap but they do their job. I find that even on the one hour cycle, my collected dished come out very clean, even the ones that have been sitting for a week. The dishes need to air-dry overnight but I am careful to drain them when I open the machine and I find that they dry well if I leave the door ajar overnight. I am quite happy with the machine. My only problem is that the bottom drawer does not slide in and out well until it is pretty full. For the first new nights. it gets caught as I try to push it back in after loading. No great problem and I do recommend this machine.

QKirk 3/20/2022

Both the upper & lower racks are too narrow to fit Most glasses and very narrow lower level racks to fit dishes properly. They also won't allow normal square dinner plates. It also does not get rid of rinse water via drying cycle. The total overall design observably was not designed by a woman.

Another great dishwasher

Grand Old Gal 3/5/2022

This is the second Bosch dishwasher I had bought for my home. My first dishwasher lasted eleven years, and when it's brains quit, I decided to replace rather than repair. I love my new/second Bosch dishwasher. It is so quiet, does a perfect job every time and I depend upon it daily. I strongly recommend Bosch dishwashers. I decided to go immediately with a black one rather than wait 4 months for a white one. I am very happy with that decision.

Happy with this unit so far!

Johnathan 2/13/2022

This replaced a 15 year old GE dishwasher which was cleaning inconsistently. Overall install was pretty straightforward and so far we're very happy with how the dishes come out, noise of the cycles, and ease of operation. My only negative remark for this model is that the inside is a tad smaller (maybe 20% or so) which means we're running it more frequently than the old GE.

Quiet dishwasher that cleans dishes well

Tom N 2/11/2022

We purchased our Bosch dishwasher in late October 2021. It does a good job of cleaning our dishes with no spots when we use a rinse. The quiet operation is a great feature. It did breakdown after 2 months but that was due to a installation problem. Bosch service department did help us set up the repair that was completely covered by the warranty. However, it took a month to get our dishwasher repaired. Otherwise, I would have given it a 5 star rating.

Not satisfied

Yuck 1/25/2022

I bought the Bosch on the recommendation of the sales person. My original choice was a Beco. Due to availability because of Covid(or so I was told) after waiting over a month, I was directed to the Bosch as a comparable. WRONG The dcb's are somewhat comparable but that's where it ends. The unit does not shut off on its own, and does not dry completely ever no matter how stacked the dishes are (contrary to instructions). My old dishwasher did a better job and it was the cheapest model Kenmore of its day. I am totally disappointed and I will never recommend a Bosch dishwasher to anyone.

SHEM3AY56N Review

Barb 1/19/2022

Please know that I understand and fully respect the good reviews of this dishwasher. I have listed below a few review comments and experiences of my own. Use and Care Instruction Booklet: This booklet, in my viewpoint, is poorly organized and written. I have found it necessary to create a spreadsheet just to follow, streamline, understand and remember the basics. Granted, my old dishwasher which was replaced was outdated, but the old dishwasher was reliable and did not require such detailed, circular instructions for washing dishes. Moreover, the Appliance Overview in this booklet is incomplete. Silverware basket: The handle design of my Oneida flatware is too wide to fit into the dishwasher basket lid grid and so I must fold the lid down. In my opinion, the compartments below which I must use are about twice as large as they should be. The flatware just piles upon itself leaving me to question whether or not it gets an adequate cleaning. Top shelf: In order for my dinner plates to clear the upper spray arm, I must raise the top shelf more than is really needed. This limits the height of items that I can place on the utility rack or the cup shelves. In addition, the top shelf will not close when the utility rack is in the raised position. This means that tall glassware cannot be placed on the left side of the top shelf regardless of whether the utility shelf is being used or not. Cup shelves: In my opinion, these shelves should be removable. I personally do not find them useful. Also, the stemware supports only work for stemware with narrow stems. And when these shelves are folded down, they affect glassware placement, such that the glasses must sit upright and not slanted at an angle. This allows more water to remain on the bottoms of the glassware rather than drain and allow the glassware to dry. Final Comment: My over-all experience with getting and installing this dishwasher has been difficult. I needed a dishwasher when hardly any were available. I first purchased a Bosch 300; it was installed without a kickplate. After three months and still no kickplate, I exchanged the 300 for an available Bosch 100. Neither dishwasher was ever installed correctly. Presently, the dishwasher sits too far out from the kitchen cabinet, the edge of each décor strip protrudes beyond the front of the kitchen cabinet, and my kitchen floor is torn and scratched. I appreciate that the dealer has provided compensation to me for the damages. There is no compensation, however, for the disappointment, inconvenience, and loss of the kitchen floor which I love. This final comment, of course, has nothing to do with the quality of the Bosch dishwasher. It is unfortunate that you have no influence or control on the qualifications/capability of the installers.

Great at cleaning. The top rack needs to be redesigned. The wine glass holders are inflexible so you can't get ask the glasses in. When you flip the holders up to use for spatula or long spoons then you can only get very small(short glasses) in.

Not In Love

Big Red 12/19/2021

I loved my old Bosch dishwasher...but unfortunately I don't feel the same about my new one. The top rack is the main disappointment. It has to be completely pulled out to assess certain functions. The tub is plastic compared to the steel used previously. The dishwasher cleans well, but loading the top rack is a nuisance.
