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

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta White Built-In Dishwasher:
The first Bosch dishwasher lasted 12 years withoutever calling a serviceman until the motor died.The old model loaded more dishes & pots & pans.The old model after cycle everything was dried outwithout any moisture left.The best cycle is the express cycle.
for what it cost its the perfect choice

after installing which was not difficult, it cleans well. the spot drying liquid is the only thing that seems to run out quickly in this unit compared to other machines I've had.

Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta Series Black Built-In Dishwasher:
I bought this dishwasher online sight unseen in a hurry when my old Maytag broke two days before Thanksgiving. We picked it up and installed it ourselves. It is such an improvement over our old dishwasher. It is so quiet! While it does have long cycle times and loading takes some getting used to I am very happy with this machine. It cleans very well and I'm pleased with the water saving features.

About Me Once-twice a week user
This dishwasher is very quiet and we are quite pleased with it. All of my dishes come out of the wash cycle squeaky clean, even if they had leftover grime or crusty food on them ahead of time. We really like this product!The only negative is the lower dish rack is challenging to fill efficiently due to the varied sizes of the rack's prongs. We have big bowls that take up a lot of the spaces, so we are still trying to figure out how to pack those in to save on space while also getting them clean.Overall, I would highly recommend this dishwasher! Great, quiet investment at a reasonable price.
Prompt delivery and quick installation with a wonderful technician. Very professional and friendly.

About Me Selective user
Variety of load sizes and times are perfect for me since I live alone but do entertain friends and family.So far (I've had it for four weeks) everything washed came out clean as a whistle. So much quieter than the previous washer!Can't think of anything I'd change other than, maybe, a shorter time for the larger loads.Delivery guys on time and polite.

About Me Heavy duty user/large household
The washer is quiet and does a good job cleaning the dishes. We have a lot of big and off size dishes and sometime it is difficult to fit everything in the washer. Overall, we love the washer and feel that for the price of the washer, it is a good buy.
