I bought it because Bosch has a name in the dishwasher and washer business but I would be very careful if I ever bought another Bosch. It has had pump problems for years. We replaced the pump once but still some-days it just decides not to work right. It has grey plastic wheels that roll the trays out for the dishes and the bottom ones are constantly falling off. I run the dishes through a rinse first then I washout the strainer before I start it on a wash otherwise the dishes come out dirty. Also, it is arranged poorly to wash dishes . The place were the bowls should go is not sufficient. It is clumsy and awkward to load. Don't overload this machine. It can hardly handle a regular load. Noise Level Noisy pump. Washing motion is quiet but draining is loud. Cleaning Time 2 hours for standard wash. Loading Flexibility Poor Performance If you rinse dishes first they should get clean but sometimes there is soap and scum on the floor of the dishwasher and yet it says they are clean. Plastic parts fall off. Design Design could be much improved. No where for bowls and serving spoons or any tall utensils. Durability The pump is a problem.
