Is the Eco wash the only difference between the 500 and 800? Anybody use that?

i was comparing the two and that looks to be the only difference.  that and $99

I echo everyone's Bosch love. I got one of the 500 models(44db, 3rd rack) and I can fit so many more dishes in this model and it cleans so much better than my old GE.  Everything comes out spotless no matter how much caked on crap I leave on the dishes.  The only downside is the funky smell that wafts thru the kitchen when you open it.

Didn't read the entire thread, but Consumer Reports says Kitchen Aide is the best dishwasher.

I buy a huge box (~100) of the Finish tablets (the ones with the red dot) from Costco, been very happy with them. Haven't been as specific with the liquid.

oh- 1 week old shouldn't present that kind of problem.

maybe the drain was attached below the trap or there's no air gap, so you're getting waste pipe smell/gases coming back up?

Is Bosch the way to go here? Most Bosch reviews are very high, despite that they have a filter that needs cleaned. And no dry cycle. Other brands seem to be all over the board.

Love ours, very quiet.

I was told to check that the drain hose looks like this

hopefully that's the problem

My Bosch is on the way out.  Only had it a few years, but it is in need of a repair again.  I didn't get the top of the line, only paid ~$400 for it so I'm guessing some of the parts weren't top quality.  Some sort of switch needed to be replaced, cost $150 for the part and repair.  Did it because assuming it lasted it would make sense.  It lasted about a year and it obviously doesn't make sense to do again.

Will be getting something other than Bosch this time around. What have people gotten recently they are happy with?

All dishwashers have problems and Bosch is the most reliable.  Wasn't the new switch covered under warranty?

My "on/off" switch just went out. Ordered it on Amazon for $17 and did it myself.

Bosch is the best. But all appliances need repairs at some point. They don't last forever.

When we replace our current dishwasher, it will be with a Miele. We had a Bosch years ago and didn't really like it but it sounds like they've improved.

Got a Miele a few months ago and love it.  Got the one with LEDs inside.  My wife thought they'd be a gimmick but now loves the lights inside.

The repair was done approximately a year ago, by Best Buy.  I didn't even bother looking for documentation, but I know they wouldn't warranty the repair.  The part itself? :shrug:

Sucks that they don't make them like they used to.  Bought our house, had to replace the what seemed to be 30 year old dishwasher, and the new one didn't even get to five years.

definitely the best around. quietest, best wash.

deja vu... but I think I mentioned that the internal parts of Miele and Bosch used to be made in the same factory- so I always recommended people to get the much lower priced bosch. but I think that's changed. miele is the defacto w/d for our clients, unless it's the beach house and need to do lots of towels.

Crazy this was bumped today - I didn't get a dishwasher a new dishwasher a few months back, but think I will with all the Black Friday sales coming up.  Folks still enjoying their Bosch units?  Being that all the other appliances in our kitchen are Kenmore, I'm looking at those as well.

Im getting a new one tomorrow. Our dishwasher went out and 1 day of doing dishes by hand is one to many. 

Leaning towards this one right now. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Frigidaire-Gallery-Top-Control-Dishwasher-in-Smudge-Proof-Stainless-Steel-with-Stainless-Steel-Tub-and-OrbitClean-FGID2474QF/205072877

May not be top end but god reviews and only $400 if I need a new one 3 years not that big of deal at that price.

Went with Bosch 500 based on reviews here and online. Meh. It's quiet but dishes don't come out as dry as our last dishwasher.

That's too bad- hadn't heard that before. What was your last DW brand?

I have a Bosch and run it overnight and the dishes are bone dry in the morning.  Sucks you are having a different experience.

Still loving my Bosch 3+ years after my POS GE committed suicide.  So quiet compared to the freight train I used to have.

Yep.. my Bosch is still kicking ### and taking names. If you're wanting to open it to bone dry dishes 3.5 seconds after the cycle ends, you'll probably be disappointed, though.

I figured it would be my fault somehow. 

We'll run overnight and dishes are still not dry in the morning. Not bitter, just saying it's not all roses 100%of the time

My response was part shtick, but If they're not dry in the morning then something is definitely wrong. Ours are usually dry when we open it and it's usually not even overnight.

I repaired by 8 year old Bosch that wasn't heating properly.  One of the pins on the relay on the PCB was burned out, so I reflowed some solder to the pin and wha-la, it's working perfectly again.

If only there would have been some mention anywhere on the internet that this would be the case

 

is this a common thing for Boschs? 

I won't be so quick to recommend to friends and clients if that's the case.

Glad to see I wasn't the first one thinking along these lines.

My only complaint about my Bosch would be those crappy plastic wheel glides popping off and 2 of them went AWOL on my wife, so I have to but some online and pop them back on. Now that she knows what they look like, maybeshe won't throw the next one that pops off away.

Update ended up going with the Bosch 500 as well. It's been great. Also added a Bosch cooktop and hood. I still need to install the hood this weekend but it's all been great. I'm sold on this Bosch stuff.

If you expect everything to be completely dry you'll be disappointed. We usually have a little leftover moisture on top of mason jars, Tupperware, etc. I haven't found it to be annoying at all. And I adore the 3rd rack and how well it cleans. 

Yeah that 3rd rack is allot more handy then I was anticipating.

For us at least, it mainly happens with plastic containers.  Or things with a lip or concave bottom (e.g. coffee mug with a ridge around the bottom), where water can pool.

so apparently the new Bosch's have now added a heated coil option.

You can decide to either do the condensation method (2 hours but energy efficient) or you can go to the 60 minute dry time.

we'd likely do the condensation method 90% of the time but on a day like yesterday (30 people over for Easter), we'll use the heated coils

Bump. likely buying a new DW this weekend. Consumer Reports (and FBG) likes the Bosch a lot, but Amazon reviews aren't pretty.
