Approx. a year ago, My wife & I bought a Bosch Dishwasher. What a
mistake! I came to find out that there was only one Bosch service
repair company in this town. The service repair company has been to my
house on four (4) occassions to repair this machine, & it's still not
repaired. In the meantime the water sits in the bottom of the machine.
We have made at least 6-8 calls to Bosch. We have talked to Stephanie,
Steve, Valerie, & who knows who trying to remedy the problem. No one
from Bosch has ever called us to apologize for the inconveinence or to
offer a solution. In fairness to Bosch, they have agreed to pay for the
repairs. Next week sometime when they feel like it, the service repair
company will return to see if the new wiring harness is the right one
this time. It seems the wires had gotten to hot & melted some of the
insulation. I guess I have an $800 Lemon on my hands. Oh! Did I tell
you that I bought it from Lowe's? My advice to anyone, is to buy your
appliances from a local dealer who does their own repairs. It's worth
the extra money.
You should have bought the $89 4 year service agreement at Lowes. If they
can't fix it after a few tries they replace it. By the way, in case your
repair man is a moron, did you check the wire nuts where the house ac
connects to the dishwasher. My parents have a Bosch and it suddenly stopped
and one of the wire nuts were burnt thereby breaking the connection. I
replaced it and it has been fine ever since. Turns out it is a common
problem. The Bosch wiring at that point is a bit too light. In any case,
my Asko broke 4 times in 6 years (each time something different) and my 3
rack Maytag was a complete piece of junk that we dumped after just 2 years
of ownership. The Bosch is a good reliable dishwasher you are just being
screwed up by an incompetent repairman. The small stores would have
probably used him too if he is the only authorized one in town.
I have a bosch. its very quiet but low on the features. It will clogg
up too because my wife does not know how to rinse the food off the plate
before she puts it in the washer sometimes.
I make a point to run the garbage grinder before each wash. If its
clogged the dishwasher can have trouble draining.
otherwise I have to sometimes take a spoon and clean the water out of
the dishwasher and the drail hole with food and all. ShopVac works like
"Then said I, Wisdom [is] better than strength: nevertheless the poor
Bosch has a filter you have to clean once in a while. All garbage disposals
need to be cleared before using dishwasher if dishwasher drains into it.
Also make sure water is running hot before starting dishwasher.
I have a bosch too, nice and quiet, but its required service from the
beginning and I believe it was the least reliable brand in consumer
reports survey. Sears has the ONLY service around and theres no local
parts source, other than sears who is expensive. I probably wouldnt buy
another one, it does a good job cleaning dishes though:) oddly enough
mine got 2 new control boards, a new motor, and a new valve sensor
Advantages cleans well and unreal quiet!!! amazingly quiet! premium
machine stainless interior
I NEVER rinse anything before loading machine, mine has a seperate
drain line to the sewer, dishwasher isnt by sink
