"Worst Dishwasher Ever"
Less than 7 months old and continually comes up with an E:24 error. Have cleaned out the drain line multiple times. Performed every other online "solution" possible. How can a product that is supposed to be high end fail after such a short time? Look online, I am not alone. There seems to be a plague of E:24 errors out there. Poor engineering and poor manufacturing. Steer away from Bosch dishwashers.

"Don't Buy Bosch"
Whoever designed this obviously never loaded a dishwasher. The special silverware tray sits so close to the inner lid that silverware (regular, everyday flatware) gets knocked over when you close the tray and comes out water spotted and dirty. The rack for glassware is so shallow that we have to hand wash wine glasses, and the rack for dishes holds plates but is useless for most of our bowls.

"Broke again"
3rd time in five years I had to have a repair man come out. This time it was a bad solder joint on control board. I was told a common problem. It's fixed again. Will never buy Bosch again.

"Bosch doesn't warranty against rust!!!"
Bought dishwasher, fridge, microwave and stove in Jan 2011 and by Nov 2011 rust!!!! Bosch won't replace the parts, offering us a 50% discount on replacements. Said it was because our condo is by the sea in Florida. The salt air is to blame. We purchased our first set of appliances 4 years ago (we live in Ct) and our appliances aren't rusting, we live by the sea there too. Will never buy Bosch again!!!!!! Less than a year old and rust and trying to place blame on us, shame on them. Our Florida neighbors have stainless steel appliances from LG and no problems. Quality and customer service has declined, never again. I will let everyone know about the lousy treatment they gave us.

"Makes My Dishes Squeaky Clean"
I have owned my dishwasher for about three months now, since I had so recently got brand new appliances in my home. I am thus far very satisfied with my dishwasher, the Bosch Integra 500. Let me start off by saying that this is the best dishwasher I have owned. One thing I like about it is the design. It is super simple, silver, shiny, and gorgeous. The second thing I like about this beauty is definitely the extra quiet run. With my old dishwasher, you could hear it from a mile away! But with the Bosch Integra 500, you can barely hear it because it is so silent and quiet! Another thing I like about the Bosch Integra 500 is the cleaning ability. If you ever have a whoops and you spill something all over it, or you have a mishap with the blender and send smoothie mix everywhere ( I know I have ), the Bosch Integra is so easy to clean. One thing I dislike about this almost flawless dishwasher is the small interior. As an owner of this dishwasher, I would have expected it to be much bigger given the beautiful outside. But still, it works great. Also, there is no hard food dispenser which I am missing from my old dishwasher. I have not have to repair or replace this dishwasher thus far, and I hope I won't have to. I would most definitely buy the same brand again once this one has gone through the years. But I think I will definitely have this for a long, long time, because it is so reliable and great!

"Dishes Are Clean - Save on Money and Energy Too!"
In 2008, we purchased a replacement dishwasher. We were looking for a quieter model than the previous one that we owned. It was also important that the new dishwasher have energy savings modes and a cycle for lighter loads. Our children are grown, so most of the time we do not have as many dishes to wash as we had in the past. This new dishwasher has provided outstanding results even when we use the energy savings cycle and option to open the door to air dry instead of running the dry cycle. The amount of water and electricity we use is half of what we used to use in the old dishwasher. With the Bosch, we have been able to run the dishwasher which is in a kitchen that is adjacent to our living area, even while watching TV. It is extremely quiet. We love this model and having clean dishes as well as energy savings.

Review:
"Lower end Bosch Dishwasher from Lowes"
I purchased this dishwasher in October of 2010, to replace a 1970's dishwasher that didn't work. I had a higher end Bosch dishwasher in a previous home, and loved it. My budget was lower this time around, so when I found this Bosch at Lowe's, in my price range there wasn't any doubt in my mind. I should have done some research before purchasing this Bosch. I love how quite it is, there is nothing better than a near silent dishwasher. However, it doesn't have very many features, and every cycle ends with a drying cycle. I have also found that it doesn't clean my dishes as well as I had hoped. Part of the problem is that the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher gets clogged easily and needs to be cleaned often. If I keep track of cleaning the filter, the dishwasher is wonderful. But, I have 4 children and often times I forget about the filter, until I end up with dirty/clean dishes. If I had to go back and repurchase this dishwasher I would do more comparisons, and if it was still the best option in my price range I would buy it.

"Bosch Dishwasher"
We have owned this dishwasher for over 6 months and could not be more pleased. Very quiet and gets the job done. We like the stainless steel tub and the top rack as adjustable racks which offer great flexibility. Not really any complaints about it. We would definitely buy this model or brand again. We have had great clean dishes with it. It also has a feature to heat up the water hotter then the tap and this works great on tough baked in cookware and also sanitizes what ever you need to be super clean. Another nice feature is the fact the heat element is not exposed so no melted plastic if it gets too close to the element because there isn't one near the bottom like other models.

Review:
"a very sturdy machine. has lasted 11 years so far."
I have been somewhat satisfied with my dishwasher because it has lasted so long. But it does not always do the best job cleaning getting things clean, and we still rinse them first in the sink. So far it has not been repaired yet, but it perhaps could run a bit better. I like that it has lasted since we installed it. I feel it could get looked at and perform for a little longer. But perhaps it could be more energy efficient and we could use less water. I would buy the same brand again, but if it were not the most energy efficient I would buy a different brand. So far it has worked well but could run more effectively. I would recommend a brand to a friend as a potentially reliable option. It still feels sturdy has lasted so long, and that is a quality I am looking for in the next dishwasher I get.

"Dishwater problems"
I bought a Bosch dishwasher in May of 2009 and it has given me some problems. Firstly, the Lowes installer put it in without any mounting screws, and I didn't realize the problem until about a year later. I eventually ended up mounting it firmly myself by simply observing another dishwasher. I suppose you could consider this a repair job, but the contractor from Lowes obviously didn't know what he was doing and we payed $70 for him to 'repair' it. So it wasn't the dishwasher's fault after all. When it didn't have screw mounts, it would move about which damaged the water line. I ended up repairing that myself too. On the flip side, theBosch is actually a great-looking dishwasher, and I would recommend them. It actually works just fine, but certainly didn't seem like it at first. We thought it was normal for it to mildly shake like it was, but that wasn't the case. Just be sure to watch out for some of these contractors - you can easily get ripped off.
