Cons: Constant break-downs, bad odors if not run every day
In 25 years of purchasing kitchen appliances for multiple homes, this Bosch dishwasher has been our biggest mistake. In the 7 years we've had this dishwasher, it has broken down 4 times. We've had other dishwashers (all KitchenAids) that were 15-20 years old and never had a problem. In researching the problems we have had, I can see that we weren't alone. Others have had the same problems major design flaw with the control board inside the door panel. Weve had it replaced by a Bosch authorized service center three times, which has been a huge expense. I called Bosch regarding this fourth breakdown and their response was nothing we can do its out of warranty. So, if you have the time to deal with the inconvenience of washing dishes by hand and waiting around for service repair guys go ahead and get a Bosch. Otherwise, I would certainly recommend anything else.
