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

It's the Best, Bosch
About Me Every day user
Comments about Bosch 24 " Ascenta Series Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:
It is so quiet that I hardly know it's working. My dishes and table ware are so clean with no water marks or stains. It also has a sanitize option that I almost always use. The only minus is I find it difficult to load. Considering this one minus I would still give this washer five stars. It's the best that I have ever owned.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Totally happy with product.

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
This machine is great. Cost about the same as the GE I replaced with it. The GE was a dog, had 3 service calls during the warranty period, and never really got things clean. We had to prewash the dishes or they came out dirty. The Bosch gets the dishes really clean and does it almost noiselessly. It's only been installed for a couple of weeks, so I can't talk about reliability, but my daughter has a 13 year old Bosch that shows no sign of wanting to die.
Service and delivery comments:
I have no problems with the actual delivery, but I'm not too happy that it happened two days after the promised date. Abt needs to work with their delivery company (Pilot) to deliver on their promises. No doubt they have an excuse, but I don't want to hear it, do you?

from Houston, TX
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.
Love my dishwasher!!

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

About Me Every day user, Heavy duty user/large household
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.
Delivery was as promised.

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.
