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 Once-twice a week user
Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher:
Very quiet. Looks great. We had to get use to the loading arrangement of the dishes. It was just different from the old washer. Not a very big place for rinse ad.
Super quiet and lots of room.
About Me Every day user
The dishwasher was recommended by one of the ABT staff and so far so good. It it so quiet you do not realize it is on but it cleans well. Simple to use. I have not had it very long so I cannot say more but I hope it lasts up to 20 years like the staff claimed and the red display is appealing. Has a lot of room for dishes but the grates are so close together that is a little harder to put larger items in but they will still fit.
I would give it a 90
Cleans well. Leaves a few streaks on glasses, after I have tried different cycles, amounts of spot prevention liquid, etc.Even asfter reviewing owner's manual, still not sure of differences btwn some cycles.
Very happy with the product!

So Quiet We Couldn't Tell it Was On!

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta White Built-In Dishwasher:
I have to admit I did a bit of research before I went into Abt to make my purchase, but my efforts didn't disappoint. This machine is sleek looking, cleans dishes like nobody's business and is so quiet, we're glad it has an LED readout to tell us it's still on. Bosch is a fantastic dish washer!
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was as promised, with nothing in particular to mention.
About Me Avid Cook
Our new Bosch dishwasher is performing every well. The two hour cycle is long, but dishes are clean and free of spots. The installation was on time and efficient.

They Could Have Done Better
By Mr. Househusband
from Chicago, Illinois
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.
Delivery was prompt and product arrived new in box.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
