We gutted and rebuilt our kitchen and totally upgraded our first floor
in 2000. As part of the kitchen rebuild we bought a $1,300 Bosch gas
cooktop and an $1,100 Bosch dishwasher. The is what has happened in 5
The gas cooktop had to be completely replaced by Bosch within months
of the installation due to faulty electronics in the igniting system.
The new one was really no better. Last year I paid $256 to have a new
electronic control unit put in. Here we are a year later using a Bic
butane lighter to light one of the five burners.
The dishwasher is no doubt the quietest dishwasher I've heard. And it
cleans great. But after 5 short years I just spend $292 for a new
computer module after it refused to go to the next cycle. I'm finding
out this is a common problem with Bosch dishwashers.
Bottom line ..... I would not spend another penny on Bosch appliances
again. Live and learn. Even the repairman who was here working on the
dishwasher this weekend said Bosch dishwashers are very quiet but a
total pain to work on and very very expensive to fix.
I wish I had the name and address of the one person at Bosch who
actually may care what their customers think. I'd love to write that
individual a letter.
Just my two cents worth for those considering buying a Bosch
