This is the quietest dishwasher we've had in 40 years. It cleans very well and would merit 5 stars plus if only the bottom rack did not mis-track so easily.

To load bottom rack, the door has to be completely open (reasonable) but if the bottom rack is more than 2/3 pulled out, the wheels will slide off their roll path. You have to manually lift the basket with two hands, and not rattle the plates, to reposition it. (not reasonable)

I bought this myself, on-line, based on Consumer Report's strong recommendation. We are learning to cope with the lower basket, but if one is a bit tired, it is easy to forget about its shifting when loading.

We needed a dishwasher that was reasonably priced, fairly quiet and reliable. I don't need all the "bells and whistles" of special features in pricier models. This is a two person household, and I no longer host dinner parties for 10.

The washer itself cleans very well, but this may be because one can not cram as many plates into it as in my older, non-Bosch d/w. Perhaps this is because we often use heavier, terra cotta plates and/or pasta bowls. It would probably work well with thin, straight plates, especially bone china ones.

The upper rack is very good, with foldable tines in one row. There seems to be more head clearance for 22 ounce glasses and taller stemware. The silverware basket has slots that one can fold out of the way, or use to keep similar items from blocking the wash water. One can also secure small items inside the basket. I usually do not wash pots and pans in the dishwasher, so I can't comment on that.

I am still pleased with the dishwasher, but my husband (who is V.P. in charge of dishes) becomes frustrated with the lower rack.

I used this dishwasher only twice and had it replaced with the SHEAR72, which as two more cycles. This description is STILL incorrect, as it notes that this machine has 6 cycles. It does not, it has only 4, which is why it was replaced with the AR7, which actually does have 6 cycles.

Beyond that, the process to select amount of drying aid to use is WAY TOO COMPLICATED. Drying was very unsatisfactory. Cycles are long and the racks offer little flexibility for different types of dishes. Suitable mostly for plates, cups, and silverware.

I'm using the SHEAR72 for the first time today and will see if it performs any better. I expected more from Bosch, as I was very happy with my oldie but goodie. Unfortunately, it was so oldie that parts are no longer available and it had to be replaced.

        My new Ascenta dishwasher lives up to the rave reviews given in Consumer Reports. Washes great without pre-rinsing and is so quiet I have to put my ear to it to be sure it is on.
        Highly recommend Abt for price, customer service and excellant care in shipping.

        Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series Black Built-In Dishwasher:

        I didn't understand the awkward loading comments until I started using the appliance. The rack is not well designed and doesn't accommodate pots, pans, or irregular shaped items well. The control buttons could be made more user friendly by having internal lighting so they would be easier to see (our unit is black). The unit is very quiet and does a great job cleaning. Installer from ABT was prompt, courteous, and helpful.

        The new internal configuration is better than the old, but still not optimal.

        And why did our old Bosch only last 10 years?

            It's certainly quiet, and it does get my dishes clean, but the awkward configuration of the baskets means that it holds far fewer dishes than the 20 year old Kenmore it replaced. I usually end up washing a few things by hand since they wouldn't fit with a regular load. Definitely disappointing.

              This model cleans dishes very well and is exceptionally quiet. But...the bottom rack goes off the track repeatedly. I was hoping for better. We have adjusted to cleaning the filter once a week, adding Jet Dry every 2 weeks when the indicator lights up, and not being able to fit as many dishes as we used to in our old dishwasher. We don't even mind using a balled up dish towel to hold the door open in order to prevent bad odors. But when that rack goes off the track, I quietly curse you Bosch.
