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 appliance.
