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.

So Quiet!

Submitted by Joe P - 11/25/2019

Such an improvement over my old machine! The floor light indicactor is no gimmick - it's really so quiet that you wouldn't know it was operating with out it. The untensil tray and adjustable rack are nice features as well. I installed the machine myself and it was fairly straightforward.

Great, quiet dishwasher

Submitted by Denise in SoCal - 11/10/2019

This is my 2nd Bosch 18" dishwasher. Love it. My only complaint is that this newest model doesn't look finished at the bottom. The previous one had a small stainless steel panel under the door which made it look more finished with the cabinets. The dishwasher itself works great. I ended up removing the 3rd (top) rack as it was impossible to load even medium tall glasses. It wasn't needed.

The Best

Submitted by Judy - 10/31/2019

This is the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned. If it wasn't for the red light that shines on the floor when it is on, I would never know it was on. I also love the 3rd drawer for silverware...I seldom use the basket anymore. I totally recommend Bosch.

Life Changing

Submitted by Pippi - 10/26/2019

My new 18 inch Bosch Diahwasher has been called cute, adorable and perfect...it is all that and more. It is a workhorse. The dishes stack millimeters from one another and are spotless every time. I am very impressed. Love the third rack. It is a challenge to see what I can squeeze onto it. I am 50 and this is my first dishwasher...ever. I am in love. Thank you, Bosch.

Love it BUT the dishes come out wet

Submitted by Vicki - 10/26/2019

I did a lot of research prior to selecting this model. It looks great; capacity is good; i love the third rack; it cleans well; and is super quiet. BUT energy efficiency standards mean the cleaning cycle is long, and the dishes come out wet. I'm all for minimizing climate change, and accept this as a condition. However, it is an incovenience that I did not anticipate since my previous dishwasher dried (but was old and needed replacement).

Good product, difficult instructions

Submitted by Lyle - 10/19/2019

Does a great job cleaning and fits lots of dishes into a very small space. Sleek look and easy to clean. Instruction manual and usability is a small issue. Big learning curve and difficult to tell when it's operating. Overally, a good product and after some time you get used to it. Would recommend.

Glad we chose the 800 Series

Submitted by JR9607 - 10/5/2019

We were looking for a quiet dishwasher than would fit into our small NYC apartment, and we're sure glad we went with the Bosch 800 Sereis. It's incredibly quiet. We can hardly hear it - even when we're next to it. It's spectacular, performance-wise, as well. Everything fits nicely, the fold-down tines really make this dishwasher that much more flexible, and the cutlery rack is a god-send when coming from a dishwasher that didn't have one. Lids and small items finally have a place where they won't go flying around or end up in the bottom of the dishwasher. We're so glad we chose the 800 Series.

Fabulous Little Machine

Submitted by Kathe - 9/24/2019

This dishwasher can handle nearly the same as my larger dishwasher, and cleans with less water. The features (i.e. adjustable racks) creates a way to wash everything of every size. The top silverware rack is perfect...the silverware does not use space for other dishes or pots and pans. It is brilliantly designed and functions as expected of a Bosch machine. Best dishwasher I've ever owned - by far.

Needs a Base Cover Plate

Submitted by Mike - 9/15/2019

The dishwasher is a very modern style and operaion is quiet. Happy with the look and operation, however, there is no base cover plate. As a result, the white plastic adjustable legs are clearly visible. This is not a good look. either Bosch needs to provide a black base cover plate or the installer will need to come up with something.

good looking, wish it was easier to use

Submitted by Jason - 8/14/2019

Our dishwasher has taken some getting used to. It's not as easy to load as previous dishwashers I've used, but it's pretty quiet, and seemingly energy efficient. It also does not do a good job of drying. There is always a lot of liquid remaining on the door, and usually our dishes are still relatively wet.

Small dishwasher

Submitted by Rick - 8/8/2019

Outstanding dishwasher. The first time I used it I had to place my ear against the front panel to see if it was turned on. It's that quiet. Easy to program on the digital panel. Although this is Bosch's smaller dishwasher, it has all the features of the larger unit. I really appreciate the utensil drawer at the top of the washer. It allows you to remove your utensils without placing your fingers of the parts of the utensil you want absolutely clean. Never had cleaner dishes.

So much quieter and more beautiful than my previous model. Does everythign well. The only negative are the bottom rack tines are so narrow and steeply pitched that it's hard to a lot of items.

18" is plenty of dishwasher

Submitted by michellec1811 - 6/29/2019

The smaller size took a little getting used to but the space savings was so worth it. The various settings and the adjustable rack heights have made it one of our best purchases ever. It is definitely my favorite appliance.

Unsure how to load properly

Submitted by clueless buyer - 5/12/2019

To start off with: I'm a technical person. I work with computers and cameras, can take them apart, put them back together. However, I can not figure out how to load coffee mugs and glasses securely. Usually, the whole rack is filled, everything is separated, upright, secure. But there are very few upper tines, and many of the ledges don't have enough angle to load them so they lean with a sense of security. With every dishwasher I've owned or used, this has been a no brainer. There are no photographs on how to do this, the manual only has a 2nd picture of the cutlery rack as an illustration of the upper rack. When I load them, the glasses fall over, the cups clank together. I just got off the phone with customer care. Unfortunately, they were unable to answer my question, and I could sense their impatiance. They told me that they sent me everything they had, the fold down cup ledge, which is too short, should be enough, I can load ramikins and plates, all sorts of stuff. But my question is: How do I load glasses? The photos on the web site have a photograph of a layout that my machine doesn't have. Am I asking too much? I have no idea on how to do this, and I've been loading dishwashers for 40 plus years. Any advice, perhaps with photos, would be greatly appreciated. I haven't washed any dishes yet, but am feeling very foolish.

Excellent dishwasher, quiet and efficient

Submitted by jered - 3/12/2019

Purchased this as an open box at Lowes saving over 1/2 price. Glad we finally got one as it's our favorite part of our complete kitchen remodel (that didnt have a dishwasher). Close to silent operation - able to have a normal conversation without raising voices even standing right by it. Dishes come out sparkling clean. 3rd rack for flatware is a godsend. allows you to really pack in the dishes in this 18" model. Looks amazing - matches our stainless Kenmore Gallery kitchen suite perfectly as well as our Stainless farm sink. Perfect addition for our now amazing kitchen! Thanks for such a great product!

Dishes are very clean, but...

Submitted by Rcline - 3/9/2019

I've had this dishwasher for about a month, after nearly 20 years with a GE dishwasher. I assumed that, for triple the price, I'd have no misgivings. The thing is that this dishwasher does not actually have a "dry" function and at the end of the cycle there is still a lot of moisture inside. Even if I wiped it down. I read the guidance, and it explains that the machine uses heat only rather than air and heat to dry the dishes. Anyway, between washes (I care about water use and try to only run when the machine is full--about once a week) it gets very smelly and weird in there. No mold that I have seen (it's sterile, at first), but once I put in soiled plates, things happen. Then I run it and it's all clean again, so net: it's fine. But it is taking some getting used to!

Dishwasher is great, cannot hear a thing when it is running. The 3 piece toe kick does not seem to install properly, the instruction booklet does not make sense, when done as told, front plate does not touch the ground. Anyone else have this problem

Great Bar Dishwasher

Submitted by Matthias - 2/13/2019

I bought this dishwasher specifically for my upstairs bar. I was mainly looking for any 18" dishwasher but this one turns out to be pretty great. The bar is in the middle of our living area and it's so silent that you have to check the red spot to see if it's running at all. Cleaning and drying results (for glasses only so far) are very good and the flexible trays make loading as easy as it gets. We always have a bunch of different glasses (tumblers, long wine glasses, champagne flutes) and the height adjustable tray makes it easy to fit them all in.

This dishwasher is so quiet and efficient

Submitted by Rosie - 12/22/2018

I purchased this dishwasher as a replacement for one that was still working . The previous one was so loud we had to increase the volume on our tv when it was running. This Bosch is quieter, has a greater capacity and has more versatility in loading dishes. I read previous reviews and was concerned about the odor issue. Mine does have an odor but I am hoping it dissipates with continued use. I will be purchasing more Bosch products for my kitchen.

Fantastic

I love how quietly it runs and how clean everything is when unloading. I also think it is a design marvel that so much fits into it.

Quiet, space saving, cleans perfectly

Submitted by Mobidoc - 12/14/2018

This machine made extra drawer space in my small valley kitchen. It's super quiet so I run it while we chat and don't know it's there. The separate tray for flatware is wonderful. The machine holds 8 place settings easily. My only negative is that I leave the door closed when wet it can develop a moldy smell. If I leave the door propped open when wet stuff is newly loaded that doesn't happen.

Poor layout means dirty dishes that don't fit

Submitted by CrossCanadian - 12/13/2018

We bought this Bosch 18" dishwasher because, well, Bosch! But it's been VERY disappointing. In the promotion image Bosch uses here they must have put mini wine glasses and mini crockery in it. We have standard Ikea crockery and wine glasses, and they don't fit - both are too tall, so I can wash one, or the other, but not both. China put around the edges of the racks doesn't get clean, either. And unless we spread out the dishes into every other tine then they don't even get cleaned properly - a waste of space which means hardly any dishes fit. The cutlery tray is good, but not good enough to justify the high price and useless cleaning. A standard wash takes 2.5 hours. Life is too short. It's also "bossy" which makes it tricky to change a program. I will not be replacing it with another Bosch dishwasher unless they change the rack design substantially.

Amazing Dishwasher

Submitted by jsidelin - 12/12/2018

We needed a new dishwasher and decided to purchase a built in to replace our portable unit. The issue was space as we didn't have much in our 70's kitchen. This 18" unit was perfect to install in our tight space. The unit is very quiet and clean incredibly well and holds an amazing amount of dishes with the added silverware top drawer/tray.

Fits a surprising amount of dishes

Submitted by Wendy - 12/12/2018

I'm really pleased. It almost never leaves an item unclean. It fits a lot for a small dishwasher. It needs salt to run unless you have flawless water. I never hear it unless it's draining. Very quiet.

So clean!

Submitted by matdow - 12/11/2018

This unit runs circles around the other 18" unit that I replaced. I thought putting up with knives that were still dirty and plates with grease residue was the price of having a narrow dishwasher. Not so! In addition, the top rack for silverware is space-efficient, allowing the unit to maximize capacity. Finally, the unit is oh sooooo quiet! I should have bought this dishwasher years earlier rather than put up with the subpar unit from 2007 that came with my house.

Awesome Dishwasher!

Submitted by Happy Mama - 12/11/2018

I bought this dishwasher (my first Bosch appliance) to replace a GE model. I am so happy with this Bosch machine. It is quiet, reliable, my dishes have never looked better! The loading system is a real upgrade for me with 3 racks! It saves me a lot of time loading and unloading my dishes!

Bosch is a workhorse

Submitted by Jolynn - 12/11/2018

I bought a Bosch 18" dishwasher because I have heard that Bosch is the way to go for quality in a dishwasher. We had to get a mini one because of our small kitchen... but Bosch really knows how to optimize space inside that little fella. With a third top rack on top, it frees up space on the lower rack for the bigger stuff. So far we've been pleased with our Bosch.

Great features

Submitted by Beach lady - 12/11/2018

We bought this dishwasher 6 months ago. We have a 10' galley kitchen. This size allowed us to have absolutely everything in our dream kitchen that we wanted. The dishwasher has every feature we just had to have. Starting with wine glass rack, sharp knife/ spatula pull out drawer. Room for pots and pans, plate and bowl space. If we have a big party we do 2 loads. It's not a big deal because it runs so quite. Dishes come out dry. Love the little red dot on the floor that lets me know it is running. Quite beep to let me know it's done. We would get this dishwasher again in a heart beat, that is if we ever move.

I have had absolutely no problems with it. Design is great and it is the most quiet appliance I have ever had. Whisper quiet!

Perfect Small Space Dishwasher

Submitted by KentB - 12/11/2018

Bought this to go with a complete kitchen redo. Going with the 18" model allowed us a small baking pan cabinet, and the smaller dishwasher has plenty of capacity anyway. Very quiet and efficient.

The Operating Instructions provided (in paper & online) do not have a useable photo (on page 10) that shows me how best to load the Upper Rack of my brand new 18" dishwasher. This is my first dishwasher and I need some guidance!

Best Dishwasher!

Submitted by Spartacus - 10/31/2018

I purchased this as a backup dishwasher to fit inside of an 18 inch opening formerly occupied by an old ice maker. This is my second Bosch dishwasher purchase and the third that we have owned. The quietness is outstanding as are the powerful cleaning abilities and the beautiful looks. This will NOT be my last Bosch purchase!

We used to wash our dishes by hand because the old dishwasher wasn't good and sounded like a 747. Now we have this little guy and it's a dream! Dishes sparkling clean, it's quiet, it doesn't take up much space--seriously, this dishwasher is the bees knees.

Perfect Small-Unit Dishwasher

Submitted by Alex - 7/30/2018

I bought this dishwasher recently and I'm quite impressed by the combination of small size, super-quiet operation and features. The interior racks and unit size allow for many more dishes and cups than comparable 18" models, and the third rack for utensils (a very rare feature for 18" models!) allows for even more dishes on the bottom rack. This is a great appliance for anyone looking to make the most out of a small area!

Best cottage size dishwasher EVER

Submitted by LakeLady - 6/23/2018

This dishwasher is perfect for a small kitchen/home. I gave up 3 drawers and it was the best decision. Three racks in the dishwasher! More space than I thought possible. Quiet. Cleans dishes spotless. Great investment. More time on the lake and less in the kitchen.

Perfect for our home.

Submitted by Twirlgirl6 - 6/22/2018

I did a lot of research and spent more than I would have liked, but it was well worth it. Our new dishwasher cleans our dishes better than we could with our hands and we are ecstatic about it. It really has changed our lives and taken my stress level down by several notches. I'm so happy with this product and I highly recommend it.
