Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Issue With Silverware Baskets

Submitted by NJJim - 1/12/2022

Just installed the Bosch SHEM3AY55N and it's doing a great job washing and drying my dishes. The only flaw so far involves the silverware baskets. My unit came with two separate baskets that are very difficult to keep in place, as it does not seem like the bottom rack was designed to accommodate two baskets. Additionally, the tabs that fit over the rack rail to secure the basket catch on the rubber seal every time you pull the bottom rack out, slightly dislodging the basket. Perhaps Bosch has a different style basket that would resolve this issue. A somewhat longer single basket would be so much better. Will contact customer service.

Mostly great

Submitted by Ariel798 - 1/9/2022

Because of issues with our on demand water heater we stumbled on to Bosch because their website says they have a different heating system and can be hooked to cold water. Instructions said hook to hot but we did cold anyway. It does a great job of cleaning and that's all I wanted. No other bells and whistles needed. The only thing I'm finding hard is the tine pattern on the racks. Eventually I will find a good loading pattern.

Quietest dishwasher ever!

Submitted by Mac Eboy - 1/6/2022

This is one of the best purchases I've ever made. At first cycle, I thought the washing machine wasn't working after waiting 5 to 10 minutes and carefully listening I finally heard the system was actually running. Wow. The dishwasher is super efficient. Very easy to clean the surfaces. The inside plate and cup holder support structures of strategically located to optimize washing.

Cleans and dry dishes well

Submitted by SamW - 1/1/2022

Have been using this 100 series Bosch for 4 months. Happy with the purchase. Cleans and dry the dishse well, even with the 60 min cycle. Not as quiet as I was expecting, about the same as the old Whirlpool. Tine arrangement a bit strange, feels like less dishes each load then the old dishwasher. Hope it will last as long as the old 16 year old Whirlpool. Most importantly, hope the leak protection does what it advertises. That's what prompted to replace the Whirlpool that made a huge mess in the kitchen.

Not easy to use

Submitted by Ugg! - 12/26/2021

This dishwasher does not get used often with only 2 in the household but when we have company it's necessary. One can't just hit the cycle button and start. It requires a series of buttons to push which I have not figured but with the help of YouTube we will triumph.

I love my Bosch 100 series dishwasher!

Submitted by Michele - 12/22/2021

Our last dishwasher did not get our dishes clean and it smelled terrible. After repeated service calls, we decided to get a new dishwasher. I had heard great things about Bosch. There are only two of us so I thought the base 100 series would be just fine and it is. The dishes are sparking clean, the dishwasher doesn't smell and it is so quiet we aren't sure it's running!

Only one suggestion

Submitted by DonJo - 12/21/2021

The Bosch dishwasher is very quiet an really good a cleaning dishes with no rinsing required. The drying heat element seems set according to cycle. I hate using more electricity to dry. It seems unnecessary. So when I want a particular cycle, I would like to chose a drying cycle only when desired. I guess that would be an extra button.

Badly Designed Racks

Submitted by MMV686 - 12/19/2021

This is the third dishwasher I have owned. I really wanted to buy Bosch because of the reputation of the company. We wanted a stainless steel tub - this is only partially stainless. The bottom is plastic. The racks are horrible. Not user friendly at all. The pieces to hold the wine glasses don't work and very awkward for loading other items. The cutlery rack has already broken after using for a month. Apart from that it seems to clean fine.

Quite quiet

Submitted by DrDavy - 12/18/2021

I bought this one because it was highly rated in a consumer magazine, and because it was in stock. I love it. Once we figured out how to load it, we found that it holds more dishes than our old one, but still gets them clean. We like that it has a count-down timer, so you know when the dishes will get done. The sanitize cycle does a good job of drying the dishes. It looks nice and runs quiet. HD did a nice job of delivering and installing it.

Works but not drying the dishes

Submitted by Alice - 12/17/2021

I upgraded to Bosch thinking that it's a good brand. Very disappointed that the dishes are still super wet everytime the cycle is done. I had to dry each piece with a towel or sometimes air dry them for 3-4 hours. Maybe I got a defective one.

Exceeds Expectations

Submitted by SeeJay - 12/16/2021

I had a Kenmore Elite dishwasher before I got this Bosch dishwasher. The Kemore always had problems, didn't get the dishes clean, and the cycles took forever! In comparison the Bosch is amazing. It is very well designed and gets the dishes clean and dry within a reasonable time period. I love it! Thanks Bosch!

Bosch 100 Series dishwasher

Submitted by Peter J - 12/13/2021

I purchased this model becaue ir was highly rated in Consumer Reports, and I have been very happy with it. I have only had it for about a month, so it is too soon to talk about long-term reliability, but it cleans very well, the cleaning cycle is shorter than that of some other dishwasahers, and it is really quiet. I was told it was quiet, but I was surprised at just how quiet it was. I recommend it highly.

What an upgrade

Submitted by Bosch plant neighbor - 11/8/2021

Let me say this first. This was not my first choice - I wanted one of the Bosch dishwashers with the third rack but due to the pandemic they were on backorder for months so I settled for this model. Now comes the wow. This dishwasher is amazing! I never have to rinse my dishes even on the short 60 minute cycle. They come out dry and spotless. After a few weeks of use, I have to say I love it. I does seem to use a lot of rinse aid but even my plastic is 95% dry. I am so glad I bought it. Frankly I can't imagine what the more expensive models could do better.

Great Dishwasher For the Price.

Submitted by Rob R - 10/26/2021

You cant beat this dishwasher for the price. Its very quiet, cleans well and looks nice, I dont like the red LED display as it looks dated and I dont care for the way the racks are arranged, seems like I cant get as much in this dishwasher compared to my old Maytag. an indicator showing the cycle is complete / clean dishes would be helpful. other than these nit picks, its a great unit no regrets on this purchase.

Dishwasher is great

Submitted by MikeInMA - 10/25/2021

It has more capacity than my old Frigidaire and cleans well. My only complaints are that the water connection was not the same 3/8" copper crimp pipe and the drain hose was a different diameter. This forced me to have to go to the store to buy a water input adapter and to have to cut off the old drain hose end to adapt the connection to the disposal input. Some american sized adapters would have been helpful.

Great with Caveat

Submitted by Critic - 10/25/2021

This dishwasher performs well but was very difficult to install. It took my master plumber hours, and his bill reflected that. Yikes. I did not have Home Depot install it because the last dishwasher was incorrectly installed by a chain store and leaked and ruined my kitchen floor, which had to be replaced. Very expensive, needless to say. That said, glasses come out crystal clear. Is it the Bosch or the new Finish rinse? Don't know but I'm happy with its performance so far (about a month).

I have owned many dishwashers of all different brands in my 70 plus years. This Bosch is an amazing machine. It does everything and is so quiet you have to bend over and listen to see if it is working. The customer service people are also great. I called several times before I purchased this dishwasher. I purchased and installed it and it was super easy. To top it off this dishwasher is made in U.S.A. and customer service is also in U.S.A. and you can understand them. I am now a Bosch customer for life. And my family members are also Bosch customers too. Thanks Bosch.

Submitted by Lucas - 10/20/2021

The dishwasher is a great entry level Bosch product. Very quiet and cleans well. Use with Finish products as recommended and you won't go wrong. My only gripe is that the rack tangs are close together and small, not very much cubic feet inside for larger items. My kenmore dishwasher had a better rack layout.
