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

They Could Have Done Better

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:
Very quiet. Does adequate wash.Bottom Rack is unsuited for common bowls or glassware. Bottom rack is only suitable for flat dishes.Typical normal wash is over two hours long.Customs operation of wash cycle is cumbersome/too many keys to press to initiate change.Software is slow to respond to pressed buttons/feels like you must repeatedly press or press hard to get response.Washer has problems with bowls that are not facing downwards (upside down). Does not wash lower section of bowls at diagonal/slant.Not worth the higher price we paid for Bosch product.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt and product arrived new in box.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Completely happy with it
It cleans dishes very well, it is extremely quiet, and holds lots of dishes. Worth the money!
incredibly quiet! still learning the best way to load the dishes, the tines are all slanted and my old one had the silverware in the door. I have to put the extra long tongs and such on top rack instead of silverware basket. The run time is 2 hours and 20 minutes and the panel lights don't go off until I push the on/off button so I don't run it unless I will be there later to turn it off and open the door.

Previous dishwasher started leaking, so after checking out Consumer Reports, decided to buy this one without ever seeing it in person. What you should know:1) No drying cycle. Apparently Bosch does not have drying cycles on their dishwashers. Not a deal breaker for us. Most of the items are pretty dry by the time we take them out anyway.2) The bottom rack comes off track easily when pulling it in and out. This can cause your dishes to shift around depending on how full the bottom rack is. I might have picked a different dishwasher if I had known this.3) Very quiet. 4) Cleans dishes really well. Impressed.Overall I'd buy it again since dishwashers with similar ratings on CR cost almost twice as much. I'll take a quieter and better dishwasher and just learn to be more careful pulling the lower rack out.

I can't believe that dishwasher makers still have not given us a good way to load bowls. Our family uses a lot of bowls, and once you put in about 4, you have no room for anything put plates. And if you load them up top, you have no room for glasses.Also, the pull out tray on the bottom does not have a good track, and comes off all the time when pulling it out.

I have had Bosch dishwashers for many years in both my home an summerhomes.
