After one week of use I can not imagine washing with another brand of dishwasher. The GE that this replaced sounded like a Jet Engine in comparison, The first cycle I had to open it to make sure it was running. My glasses come out sparkling and so clean. I can see why Consumer Reports rates BOSCH as the best for cleaning!

I was really excited to to get a new dishwasher, but this one is a complete disappointment. I've had this alleged "dishwasher" for 2 months and I am ready for a new one. Right off the bat with the FIRST wash there was black crud left on silverware and some bowls & plates that looked and smelled like mold. Even using the recommended detergent & rinse aid, the strongest wash option & sanitize option, and a service visit from a Bosch tech did not help. It can't even clean a cup that had tea in it, tea stains remain in the mug. Food is left stuck on silverware. Loading is awkward at best. Taller cups fall over onto their side when you pull the rack in or out because the tines aren't tall enough. My plates have a 1/4+ inch lip around them so they don't fit well into the very narrowly spaced tines meant for plates. You must have completely flat and thin plates in order for them to fit properly. It is beyond my comprehension how this could have been a top pick by the leading consumer magazine. I WISH I had my old Kenmore back. I cannot caution you enough, please don't waste your money on this.

Not sure I would buy this model again
from Chicago, IL
Comments about Bosch 24" Ascenta White Built-In Dishwasher:
Pros: The dishwasher is very quiet and gets the dishes clean. It looks nice. Cons: The racks are rickety. The bottom rack slides all the way out too easily and is tricky to get back in. The dishwasher is definitely on the small side, and it is challenging to load with anything of unusual shape or size. It beeps for a variety of reasons. I was able to figure all this out by going online and turning off the annoying alerts, but it takes some figuring out.
Service and delivery comments:
Abt delivery and installation was great as usual.

About Me Heavy duty user/large household
I am an avid cook and use this dishwasher for dishes, pot and pans 2 - 3 times a day. This machine works very well. Everything comes out completely clean. I only wish the cycle time was a bit shorter.
Excellent service and delivery.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
good Dishwasher so far
from Chicagoland, IL
About Me Every day user
Good dishwasher so far. All controls are inside, so it is impossible to see where the wash cycle is and when/if the wash cycle is finished without opening up the door. Pretty quiet, but after a few washes, we can hear when the dishwasher is running, which helps determine when the cycle is finished. Nice to have an adjustable upper rack to accommodate tall items.
Good machine. Cleans well and quietly. Some quirks.

About Me Once-twice a week user
This dishwasher does a fine job cleaning dishes. It is very quiet and has a sleek look (to a fault). It has a few quirks and deficits worth considering. First, presumably in the interest of a minimalist aesthetic, there are no externally visible indicators of the cycle status of the machine. If you miss the faint "beep" , you will not know that the cycle has completed (at least without peeking or pressing your ear to the washer door). As others have mentioned, the track for the bottom dish rack has a gap between the body of the machine and the door into which the rack falls, when lightly loaded, while sliding forward, at least until you learn to anticipate this quirk and guide it over the gap. The loaded top rack creaks while sliding. Relatively minor annoyances, but surprising and unnecessary engineering design oversights inconsistent with the attention to detail ascribed to German products. I agree with reviewers who mention unpleasant interior odors when the unit is not operating. This may be because a pool of effluent water remains in the drain after the wash cycle is completed. The instruction manual has not been updated as I learned when attempting to adjust the amount of rinsing agent dispensed by the unit. There is no spray of hot water mentioned by some reviewers when the washer door is opened mid-cycle if common sense is used, and the washer door is opened slightly (immediately stopping operation) before fully opening. Buyers should also note that the unit is some 2 inches less deep than other units, which may suit certain cabinet limitations, but does decrease capacity somewhat.
It is a good unit for the price.
from Roundup, Montana
The new dishwasher appears to be doing a good job of cleaning the dishes and it is very quiet. The design and materials of construction do not appear to be as good as the last Bosch dishwasher we had, but hopefully this one won't have the mother board go out as soon.
Delivery was prompt and easy to track. The local shipper was suppose to call before making the delivery which did not happen. We caught the truck leaving our place which saved him having to make a second 130 mile round trip.
Excellent. It is very quiet. Washes great.
It cleans up
from upstate NY
During a bit of a kitchen reno my (not that old) dishwasher died and needed replacing. We struck it up to coincidence and I immediately knew that I would only purchase an appliance form ABT, and that Bosch was my go to brand. My new dishwasher was just installed and so far I am very happy and thrilled to not have to wash every dish by hand.
Delivery was easy and on time, i was well informed of arrival time and the driver deftly negotiated my super long rural driveway.
Quiet and cleans well.
Good customer service.

About Me Casual Cook
This product is great. It was rated the consumer reports bestbuy and so far I completely agree. There is a lot of space to load dishes and it is quiet when running. When the water drains through sink it's a little loud. The cycle is long but I run it right before bed so in the morning the dishes are ready to go. Great value for the money.
The delivery and installation was well worth it. The tech was very professional and took our old one away and installed the new one with ease and in no time. I highly recommend this portion of the service.
We are very happy.

We always wanted a Bosch DW, and it has lived up to our expectations. Very quiet and cleans well.
Delivery was exactly as promised.
