Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Works well, but.

BobG 5/20/2021

The door requires quite firm pressure to close, making a loud click. I'm not sure this is normal or if this is a problem with the top latch.

Great dishwasher

Amber Russell 5/16/2021

PROs-Cleans really well. Easy to install. Love the adjustable top rack, removable shelves and option to lay down some of the wire guides. CONs-Wish would completely shut off (lights on front) after drying. Wish it had a lever to grip to open. The push to close and pull to open seems clumsy. Wish there was a stop point on door for bottom rack to hit so doesn't come all the way out. Otherwise, we are very pleased with our purchase.

A Little More Flexibility...and I'd Rate It a 5!

Luxy 4/13/2021

I love my new Bosch dishwasher but if I could make just a small tweak I would make the racks on the lower drawer more flexible. The placement makes it difficult to properly load large pots and pans. But, when I do...they turn out shiny and spotless! Even my precious AllClad pots and pans which I never trusted to any dishwasher ever before! Handsome and hardworking...and almost perfect.

Dishwasher

Me To 4/6/2021

I bought this diswaher with a recommetion from others and I am disappointed. The spaces in the racks are very close together so it is hard to place bowls without taking up a lot of room. The top rack has the inserts for your stem wear which I laid my 4 wine glasses in the slat and all 4 glasses were broken when I opened the dishwasher after the cycle. I am not sure why it takes 2 hours for the dishes to wash/dry and I can't locate anywhere that I can turn down this timing. Not sure if this is the standard time now since it has been a very long time since I bought a new dishwasher. I love that It is very quiet and you can't hear it running.

Solid Dishwasher

Igor Maric 3/14/2021

This was the only brand that had the dimensions that we were looking for. Easy enough front panel functions. It does take 2+ hours to complete a load, which is longer than our previous Bosch model, however it does a great job on the dishes. Btw, our previous model lasted 11 years, so we were already partial to this brand based on our prior experience.

Trusted brand

Matroskin 2/10/2021

I had old Bosch dishwasher (33 years old!) that needed replacement. I have no coplains with regards to washing, drying, or nose. The reason for 4 stars is the placement of the utensil tray: it positions on the side of the bottom tray and unless you open the entire bottom, you cannot put your fork or snoon in there. In addition the little tray on the top for larger utensils is blocking the way for things to put under. Therefore, you have to put you cups first, then put the spatula on top. If I would have to choose my new dishwasher now, I would look for the different configuration.

Best Dishwasher - especially for the price

Adam 1/28/2021

We usually go middle-of-the-road on most everything we buy. We can't afford top-of-the-line, but we don't want to waste money on chincey products. When it came to buying a dishwasher, we took the same approach. Imagine our surprise when we got top-of-the-line quality for a middle-of-the-road price! This dishwasher is incredible. It cleans off stuck on food. We even intentionally let food get dried on just to test the dishwasher and out dishes came out sparkling. As an added bonus, this dishwasher is incredibly quiet. It is well worth every penny!

Very disappointed

Frustrated!! 1/28/2021

This dishwasher is not functioning adequately; it cleans dishes very well, but the interior design does not make it easy or sometimes even possible to add a cooking pot or two. The dinner plates and lunch size plates fit well, but do not allow space for pots to fit easily. The silverware basket will not even allow our silverware to fit in the basket; the basket openings are too small. The design of the racks is not very functional...both in upper and lower racks. The user manual is very poor, also. I guess I am stuck with this dishwasher for several years, but each time I use it, I am more frustrated with this purchase. The sales person showed us a more functional appearing unit, and ordered THIS unit instead and we did not realize this was not the dishwasher we thought we were getting. I am very disappointed with this purchase, to say the least!

Exceeding expectations

Mark 1/27/2021

Our 100 series has been in use for 3 months now. We generally follow and buy appliances using the CR ratings (for which Bosch scores with Recommended ratings on most models). Our expectations are therefore high. Graduating from an older Sears Kenmore dishwasher, we found the Bosch to be well built and super easy to install without help. Especially appreciate the 3-point leveling system; why didn't anyone think of this before? All we had to change was our approach to loading, and we were pleased that the Bosch racks were generously appointed with uprights and flexible arrangements,, and actually held more dished on the bottom rack than we were accustomed. The door snaps securely shut with the springs, and snaps open with a minimal pull. The real surpise was the 1-hour "Speed60" cycle.. it is now the only cycle we ever need or use.. although we haven't challenged the dishwasher wiith an overbaked lasagna tray. No matter, its fast, quiet, doesnt use much water and we are happy with the purchase.

Quietest Dishwasher

Aschenck 1/26/2021

This dishwasher purchase was well researched. I was a little skeptical of the reviews on how quiet it was. Our first full load was extremely quiet. We used to have to turn out TV volume up to hear over our old dishwasher, not with this one. One sugguestion is be sure to look at the "how to load" as I do notice if I haphazardly load it is a little louder than normal. Overall an AMAZING dishwasher!!!

Rack Issues

Gary 1/23/2021

The racks, especially the lower one, seem to be designed to hold only flat plates. We use a lot of bowls and it's a real hassle trying to get them wedged in weherver we can. There are just two of us so we don't wash every day and after three days we wind up with a packed full upper rack and a pretty empty lower one. Also, the upper rack jumps off track very easily. One more thing- the dispenser sliding door is a real pain as it's very hard to get it to stay shut. Dishwashers have been around all my life- these are issues that were solved years ago!

Very handy, easy to use, addition to our kitchen that matches our other appliances with black gloss finish. Easy instructions to install. Well insulated. Very quiet. Suggest you buy Finish Rise Aid Jet-Dry to your new dish washer. Glasses and dishes come out super dry and sparkling clean. Initial sequence to start seems complex until you do it once and then its so simple. Keeps kids from accidentally starting machine. Program code available to restart machine if you make a mistake.

We purchased the Bosch dishwaster Model SHEM3AY56N in October and like it except for the configuration of tines. They seem backward and seem too close to each other. Also what exactly does the detergent tray on the front of the top rack do? The diagram in the quick start guide shows it with a big "X" over it.

Tracey 12/20/2020

I like the top tray/rack for large serving utensils. I am not thrilled with the amount of space between the top dish rack and the bottom. I do like that the top dish rack is adjustable, but if you have it lifted, wine glasses are too tall for the top rack. If you have it lowered, the upper spray arm hits the tops of plates.
