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

Better than I expected
Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta White Built-In Dishwasher:
Unit is way quieter than I thought it would be, can hardly hear it's on when inn the same room. Styling is very nice, and unit feels substantial, not flimsy, when opening the door, etc. Only thing I don't like so far is the silverware tray isn't relocate-able, and you must pull bottom rack out all the way to put silverware in it.
Second time buyer!
We bought this bad boy for our last house and when the dishwasher broke in our new house I knew this was going to be the best option! Love it soMuch I bought it twice!
from Arlington Heights, IL
A quality Bosch product. Meets all my expectations.
Service and delivery comments:
The installers were wonderful. They encountered some glitches in the installation of our last Bosch and had to work twice as long and hard to fix the problems. But they persevered all the while remaining calm and professional. We were most impressed with them. Two very great assets for ABT.

The machine is exceptionally quiet and performs well in all cycles.
Prompt delivery. Excellent installation. No complaints
Pretty nice unit
from Rolling Meadows, IL
Check the pros/cons. My cons are really just nit picky. It's a good dishwasher. Nearly every dish has come out clean every time, and I am not in the habit of pre-rinsing before I load the dishwasher.
Very quiet and cleans well!

Delivery was great!

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series Black Built-In Dishwasher:
I purchased a Bosch for the first time and found that it held a lot more dishes than it appeared to hold. You may need to experiment with how you load it because the dish prongs are different from other machines. The shelves and prongs are adjustable so you have many ways to set them to fit tall or large items. I read the reviews about dishes not drying but found if I use the auto setting with sanitize they come out just fine. This is a longer cycle, 2.5 hours, but I set it at night and wake up to clean dry dishes. It is very quiet and does a good job at cleaning.
It's a Bosch, with a high rating
from Ormond Beach, FL
The lower plate rack is angled so as to clean the plates better but that makes it a bit more difficult to load. My last Bosch I had for 9 trouble free years which could have been fixed but figured I'd just get another new Bosh. I look at best bang for your buck on most purchases and this budget Bosh fits that category.
Timely delivery and no sales tax being in another state and better prices then Lowes but you lack the convenience of an easy return or exchange if not satisfied if not buying local
The quiet way to clean
from Mt Prospect, IL
The product exceeded my expectations, cleans well and remains quiet.
The installer was prompt and did a good job installing the dishwasher.
