Unhappy with Bosch Dishwasher
by: Marlene

I've had my Bosch Dishwasher for 13 mos.; that's one month past warranty (which I've heard doesn't hold water).

I've run the dishwasher through 3x, same dishes & they still came out dirty. I tried loading it differently, the prongs that hold dishes are very narrow. It is not user friendly.

I had a repairman; he told me water was hot enough & soft enough. Bosch is very uncooperative with repairmen when they call for information. He also has a Bosch, which he is also sorry he bought. In fact, our appliance store does not stock them anymore.

I bought Bosch because it was suppose to be the best. I've previously had three Kitchen Aid dishwashers, in the past 35 years & had very little repair, if any, to them. I think Kitchen Aid Dishwashers are far superior to Bosch.
