Rated 2 out of 5 by from My problem with this dishwasherI have been using dishwashers for over 50 years and this is the first one that I have to rinse the dishes before loading them. There is no garbage dispsoal and the filter does not trap the food. With rinsing the dishes first they come out fine, but am unhappy with the extra work. It is quiet and so far very dependable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my dishwasher!My dishes are so clean! Even cooked on cheese and oatmeal wash away without prior soaking, scrubbing or rinsing. And it is so quiet while running, that we usually cannot hear it running AT ALL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great DishwasherWe love our Bosch Dishwasher. We had a old dishwasher that came with our house, so it was load and not the best cleaner. I looked up reviews on multiple websites and found that a lot of different organizations recommended this dishwasher in Stainless steel. My kitchen appliances are white so I went with the white one and I am well pleased. I can actually hold a conversation with my wife in the kitchen while the dishwasher is running now and the dishes don't have to be scrubbed before going in the dishwasher. For those who are curious about how loud it is. I would compare the sound to a heavy rain (for California or a moderate rain for the east) with a tile roof. It's love this product and actually look forward to doing dishes, just so I can see what it can do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleaning and Whisper Quiet As WellI've had this dishwasher for a few months now and I have to say I am completely satisfied. It cleans all our dishes very well and it's so quiet that sometimes I'm not sure if it's done running (which is a good thing)! I'd highly recommend this dishwasher to anyone who appreciates quality and quiet.

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 3 out of 5 by from Missing wheelsWe have this dishwasher but bottom rack does not stay on track, further inspecting of why, I noticed 3 wheels missing.

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.
