This is the worst dishwasher I have ever used. I have never had so much trouble with any appliance ever in my entire life. It required repair within the first year and twice since then. They say to clean the filter weekly, but if not done daily it becomes completely clogged, and that is even when the dishes have been pre-washed before being loaded! When they're not pre-washed, the result is even worse. The filter not only clogs, but the dishes are left with greasy or powdery residue wherever food was left on the plates before loading. It has a long "dry" cycle, but it doesn't DO anything during that time. It doesn't circulate air or use heat or anything, just sits there for 30 minutes before finally going to the "clean" setting. They might just as well have skipped the supposed "dry" cycle so you can open the dishwasher sooner to allow them to air dry instead of sitting in there cooling off with tons of water on them which then takes longer to dry when you open it. I have paid more in repairs than I did for the original dishwasher. Customer service is worthless. I will never buy anything made by Bosch again.
