I am very pleased with the super quiet Bosch 24" Ascenta Dishwasher (SHE3AR76BK). I replaced a loud 14-year old budget level washer that didn't perform well, so it's a dream in comparison. However I did give it a good workout and it passed with flying colors. I had friends for dinner; a beef roast braised in red wine, au gratin potatoes, roasted veggies and before cleanup, had an emergency that left the dirty dishes, glasses, pots and pans sitting on the counter for over four days. When I got back (yes, it was pretty gross) I threw them in the dishwasher without any pre-washing and to my extreme surprise, everything—even the dutch oven with baked on red wine stains & the cheesy potato pan—came out spotless! I do use the recommended Finish all-in-one tabs & rinse agent and have never had a dish come out less than spotless. I can see why it was Consumer Report's Best Buy in 2012. I like the adjustable top rack. On the lower setting, I can get stemware on top and still have room for a 12" fry pan on the lower rack. I purchased the Dishwasher Accessory Kit with it and am pleased with the vase/bottle holder and plastic item clips. I tend to run it before bed and leave the unloading 'til I'm home from work, so I haven't had an issue with the long cycle time or drying like some others have. I have zero complaints about the washer. It was a bit awkward to load in the beginning, but that was more about me getting used to the different rack layout than a design issue. Great dishwasher for the price.

I wanted to buy the model my the model my mother purchased 3 months ago, but it had been discontinued. This was, according to the Abt website, the model that replaced it. All I can say is never buy a dishwasher without reviews..they sure saw me coming.I replaced my 25 year old maytag that no longer cleaned or dried well. I was too tired to re-do all the research my mom had done so I bought this model.Cleans some stuff, but not everything...it works best if you rinse your dishes first. It is suggested that you scrape your dishes, but not rinse (what a load of nonsense)I noticed the inside started to stink after the first 3 loads. I checked the filter and rinsed it..nothing really to clean. The next time I ran the "sanitize" cycle and the odor went away. Then I ran a "normal" wash and the stink was back. AND, I am still drying the dishes

I cook alot and thus have a lot of dirty dishes. This dishwasher cleans well and is extremely quiet. I am still figuring out the most efficient way to load it. Tines in bottom basket are in strange positions.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Selective user
This dishwasher works great. I have not even been rinsing my dishes, just scraping the food off and sticking them in. So far they have been coming out clean and ready to use. It is also very quiet. We hear the water running in and out, but that's about it! If you are looking for a great dishwasher at a great price, take a look at Bosch Ascenta.
Great washer for the money

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
Very quiet machine. All you hear is the water swishing around inside no motor sound what so ever. I thought we had a quite Kenmore until we purchase this machine! It does a fine job cleaning the dishes. The controls are not hidden but who cares for the price you can't go wrong with this machine.

About Me Medium User
We have used this dishwasher for about a month and it is a gem! It is used about once every 2 days, so some dishes and cutlery can have dried food adhering to surfaces. We have only used the AUTO feature and everything comes out clean and dry to the touch. The major complaint one hears about this dishwasher is the amount of time that it takes (up to 2 h). However, this is a plus since it thoroughly cleans everything in this length of time. We usually run it at night and since it is so quiet, we don't even know if it is chugging away. The 50 dB rating is no joke.
Awesome , really quiet dishwasher

I have used it every day ~ no problems ~ love how quiet it is!
My wife loves it!!!
from Riverside, RI
It is a very nice dishwasher. Cleans well and efficient. The only thing that could use improvement is the design of the shelves. It is a little hard to load and hard to get used to.

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series Black Built-In Dishwasher:
This is quietest dishwasher we have owned so far, and was the most for the money. Not sure how anyone can get a 14 place setting in there, it seems to be much smaller inside then our old Kitchen Aid. The lower rack seems to come off track all the time. Would recommend to all.
delivery was free, right on time and in perfect condition. It was also faster than getting it from the local Sears store.
Happy to be back to ABT

About Me Heavy duty user/large household
This is a fabulous dishwasher! It is so quiet and efficient. It is such a joy to have it here. The dishes come out sparkling and so clean. No streaks or spots!I've been putting up with a breaking, marginal dishwasher that this one is so exceptional! It has been such a blessings. Even the fast cycle that takes 30 min. does a bang up job. I'm a believer!!!!!!!!!!!
ABT is wonderful. The guys ware efficient and very neat and quick. They exude an air of confidence and have a good knowledge of their products and what they need to do to install them. They were a pleasure1
