Manufacturer Defect on Bosch SHE4AP Model
by: Jeff

Buyer beware on the Bosch SHE4AP model. This dishwasher has a defect that Bosch refuses to acknowledge and repair/replace. Keep this in mind when purchasing a dishwasher from Bosch. Support has been absolutely miserable in my opinion.

I absolutely HATE this dishwasher. I have hated it since I purchased it from Lowes. No results when I've complained to Lowes or Bosch.

Under warranty, I had a "Bosch chosen repair man" come to the house. His recommendation was to run my hot water while the dishwasher is running and thats "just the way they work" That did not help, even with the hot water running.

The dishwasher REEKS all the time. It was so bad that my closet of dishes smelled when you opened the door. The dishes are NEVER clean, and I end up hand washing them. I'm happy to tell anyone who will listen about how much I hate it and am so disgusted I paid so much and I trusted Bosch name. We are probably going to have to buy another one amd that just makes me sick. BUYER BEWARE!!!

The SHE4AP02UC 24" Ascenta Evolution dishwasher is a stainless steel talltub that boasts a lifetime warranty on rust-through. It offers four wash cycles and two options, and is manufactured by Bosch. With the SHE4AP02UC, you can be sure that your dishes will come out clean, and that just the right amount of water will be used. Aside from that, this dishwasher saves energy as well.

Key features

- This dishwasher is virtually silent at 53 dBA. You won't be bothered at all by its sound while it's cleaning your dishes, since it has two pumps to minimize vibration and noise.
- It's also Energy Star certified, because it uses up only 300kwh/yr. It also features EcoSense, which decreases its usage of energy by up to 20%.
- If you have to wash only a small load of dishes and cookware, you can choose the half load option. This way, you get to save water and energy even more.
- Unlike other conventional dishwashers, the heating element of the SHE4AP02UC is concealed, so you won't have to worry about plastic dishes melting because of the heat.
- Since this dishwasher is NSF certified for eliminating 99.9% of bacteria, you can be sure that your dishes are really clean.
- It also features a ChildLock, so you can prevent your children from messing with the controls and accidentally starting or stopping the wash cycle.
- If you would like to load the dishwasher but would rather have the wash cycle start later on, you can opt to set the 3 hr, 6 hr, or 9 hr delay timer.

Aside from that, its solid base and leak protection system ensures that no water seeps through your kitchen floor.

Disadvantages

Some users have complained about the standard racks. Since the racks are not adjustable unlike the other Bosch dishwashers, oversized platter and tall items don't fit into the racks.

Bosch SHE4AP06UC

Just bought and had it installed. Already dislike the way it loads. Must be a man designed it. Everybody told me 'buy a Bosch' so I did. Sure hope I like it despite the goofy rack layout. Maybe I'll get used to it. Tune in for more later ...
