We bought this dishwasher less than a year ago. It is super quiet. The layout inside is not great. I am not able to load as many dishes as I did with my previous GE dishwasher. Also, the cups do not fit in the slots as well. On the positive side, it does clean very well. I haven't had any problems with residue on my dishes. This dishwasher gets super hot. My biggest complaint is Bosch customer service. I called them after we had the dishwasher for only 8 months to submit a warranty claim. There is a crack near the on/off button. I didn't cause the crack and I can't imagine how it happened. They left me a message at home stating they would not cover the piece under warranty because we received "too good of a deal" at the store where we bought it. Wow. Had I known the deal we received would somehow void my warranty I would have bought a different brand. Noise Level Super quiet! Durability Less than 8 months and we already had a crack near the on/off button.
