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

About Me Every day user, Heavy duty user/large household
We couldn't believe how quite this unit is. It has a good amount of room for silverware but does take some thought when loading dishes due to the configuration. We always use the "normal" cycle and have noticed that it does not dry plastics on the top rack as good as we'd hoped. Overall we are very happy with this item.
Quality at a good price

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
PROS: One word, Quiet! Quality sound dampening insulation, makes this dish cleaning unit a deal.Easy to follow installation instructions. Glass products shine with use of the manufacturer's suggested products.CONS: No place for long wooden spoons or knives to standup.
MORE THAN WE HAD HOPED!
from NEWPORT, OR
THIS IS OUR FIRST BOSCH APPLIANCE. WE GOT THIS PARTICULAR MODEL AS IT WAS RATED BEST BY CONSUMER REPORTS. OUR OLD DISHWASHER WAS SO LOUD IT SOUNDED LIKE A JET PLANE TAKING OFF. OUR NEW BOSCH IS SO QUIET THAT THE FIRST COUPLE OF TIMES WE RAN IT, WE KEPT OUR HEADS AGAINST THE FRONT TO LISTEN SO WE COULD TELL IT WAS ACTUALLY RUNNING! EXTREMELY QUIET!AFTER THE FIRST LOAD WAS WASHED, MY HUSBAND BROUGHT ME ONE OF THE PLATES HE TOOK OUT OF THE DISHWASHER, ALONG WITH ANOTHER DINNER PLATE IN THE CUPBOARD, OF THE SAME SET. THE NEWLY WASHED ONE LITERALLY SPARKLED! IT LOOKED BRAND NEW NEXT TO THE ONE IN THE CUPBOARD. THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS THAT IT'S HARDER TO LOAD BECAUSE OF THE SHAPE INSIDE, BUT WE'RE ADJUSTING. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DISHWASHER!

I LOVE my new dishwasher!
from Chicago, Il
This dishwasher is so quiet I often have to check that it's actually running when I turn it on. The loading space is perfectly designed to fit all kinds of dishes so you can use the space really efficiently. My ONLY complaint is that it fills fast; although it's a standard size for a dishwasher the loading space is a bit small.

Service and delivery comments:
Prompt, courteous delivery personnel. Machine arrived without a scratch. Customer service was amazing in returning a previously purchased product that we were not satisfied with.
from Glenview, IL
This is the best dishwasher I have ever owned. It is so quiet you literally have to put your ear next to the door panel to make sure it's on. It's quieter than my kitchenaid was and gets everything spotless. I have seen complaints here and on other forums about dishes coming out damp or wet. My installer suggested using the sanitize cycle to get them really dry, but even without it, there is just minor wetness on a few items. It is well within the tolerable range. Because there is no heating coil at the bottom like domestic dishwashers, plastic things don't melt. Delicate items can be put on the top or bottom racks.My only drawback is that the racks take some getting used to. The top shelf is adjustable so I put my large items on top.
Perfect. Installer was clean, courteous and professional. I was kept totally aware of the delivery schedule.
