Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Hate This DishwasherI’ve owned and used dishwashers since the mid 1970’s. Over the past 40+ years I have learned which detergents work best and how to load and get a dishwasher to clean properly. I have also been a subscriber to Consumer Reports for many years, so when I was updating my appliances in March of 2016, I went to Consumer Reports for a recommendation. I was familiar with the name Bosch so when they recommended the Model SHX3AR7 as a Best Buy, and I found one on sale at my local HH Gregg store, I bought it. That was a huge mistake. The first thing I learned was that the racks are set up for European style dishes, which are smaller than American dishes, making the dishwasher harder to load and able to hold fewer dishes. The upper rack is adjustable, however, if you move it down to accommodate taller mugs and glasses, it is so close to the lower rack that putting mixing spoons and other longer items in the silverware compartments is impossible, and they will need to lay flat in the upper rack. The interior is a dark gray which makes it hard to see things and care must be taken around sharp knives. Over the past year I have tried everything to make the dishwasher fit my needs. I have used various detergents, run it on all of its wash cycles and am resigned to the smaller loads; but the one thing I cannot fix is the fact that this unit does not clean properly. In almost every load I need to wash something by hand. According to the appliance service person that Bosch sent to check the machine, my dishwasher is a high efficiency model, which means it uses much less water than the older models and greater care must be used to get clean dishes. Besides rinsing most of the food off of the dishes, pots, and pans before they are placed in the dishwasher, I need to wash them fairly soon (like the same day), or I can expect to have dishes that do not get cleaned. Since I live alone and fill the dishwasher gradually over several days, this is a problem. I was told that I need to use a rinse aid and powdered soap because that is how the dishwasher was designed. I was also told to remove and clean the filter often, like every couple of days, to ensure the dishwasher works properly. The store where it was purchased can offer no help and Bosch says the unit is working as it was designed. All-in-all, I hate this dishwasher and feel I have wasted hundreds of dollars purchasing something that does not work. This is the last Bosch appliance I will ever buy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing featuresI bought this model a few weeks ago, and assumed it would have a "Rinse Only" feature, so I didn't even bother to check. Sadly, it does not. It also does not have an option to select a non-heating dry cycle. I assumed these basic features would be on all dishwashers in this price range. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Clean DishesI was amazed when I saw how clean all the dish and glassware was. There were no spots, no haze and not a speck of a crumb left on a plate. Also, it looks really nice in my kitchen. With the controls on top of the door the dishwasher is totally white and again makes that area look "cleaner".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and Really CleansWe've been using our new dishwasher for several weeks and are very pleased with how quiet it is and how well it cleans. We find the 'delicate' cycle is sufficiently powerful for our every day cleaning which was a pleasant surprise. Nothing not to like!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cannot RecommendThe worst: the bottom tray constantly jumps out of its track when loading or unloading. This is a design flaw and I am concerned that it will break. The good: it is quiet and cleans fine. We've had it a few weeks and fully-load and run it everyday. Other concerns are in comparison to the unit we replaced. This machine is all about finesse; it does not seem robust (concerned about how it will hold up). The plastic trays and tines are generally thin. Loading is difficult, even with a single row of fold-down tines in each tray. It does not easily fit stoneware dishes and mugs, or large items. The top tray has 3 heights but is difficult to change and does not feel solid. It does not have the rinse and hold option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Don't Think It Could Be Better!I've had this dishwasher for the 3 1/2 years that I've lived in my home. I installed it myself and the process was straightforward. I love this dishwasher. It is beautifully designed and is easy to load with my plates, bowls, cups, glasses, flatware and so on. Operation is dead simple, and when running, it is so quiet that you have to almost put your ear on the door to hear that is washing. The interior is stainless steel and looks brand new. Unlike previous dishwashers I've owned, the racks show NO signs of deterioration, the coating on the racks is in perfect condition. Cleaning of kitchenware is excellent. It uses very little "He" detergent, and a minimal amount of rinse aid. The styling is beautiful. All the controls are on the upper edge of the door and out of sight when the door is closed. It has a clean, modern look in my kitchen.
