Cleans poorly
by: Highly Frustrated with Bosch

I replaced my old ASKO dishwasher with the Bosch SHV65P03UC and I am extremely unhappy with this new dishwasher. I don't care too much that it doesn't dry dishes well but I do care immensely that it doesn't clean properly. I have to presoak my dishes and scrub off any small particle of food before starting a cycle if I want to have clean dishes. Bosch sent a "technician", that guy was arrogant and useless. He told me that the problem came from the fact that I don't use Finnish their "recommended" detergent and he declared that the Trader Joe dishwashing detergent is the problem. It certainly was never a problem with my ASKO. He then claimed that it was because I needed to run hot water at the sink before starting the wash. I never heard of wasting hot water to make sure a dishwasher does its job.
Bosch customer care people are very polite but my complaints are falling upon deaf ears.

We included this model in our totally new kitchen. It is the worst diswasher we have ever owned. Although it is quite, it does not clean.
