Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Just what we needed

justvey 11/24/2019

We live in a coop and kitchen space is tight. Compact enough to fit where our garbage bin cabinet used to be. Although compact, it fits a lot of dishes, pots and pans. It is also quiet where we dont hear it in our bedroom which is separated by a wall from the kitchen.

Satisfied with purchase. Very quiet! It does a great job cleaning, and while the condensation drying takes a little to get used to, it's been nice not having plastic items falling and burning on the drying coil like our last dish washer!

Super Machine

dlgpapa 10/31/2019

I live in a home that was built in 1970. The cabinets are the orginal cabinets and they are not the standard size built today. A 24 inch dishwasher wasn't going to work without an expensive remodel so I went with the 18 inch Bosch. Cannot complain at all. It is a super machine to say the least. Cleans better than any full sized dishwasher I've had in any of my other homes. The dishes just sparkle when the wash cycle is odne. It is sooooo quiet. There's only two in my household so the 18 inch machine is really just perfect. This is really not a complaint, just a suggestion. On the silverware basket it woul be nice if the slotted cover was made so that you could open just one side for larger items. Overall, excellent machine.

IKSIDKP 10/28/2019

This is my second Bosch dishwasher, first one was in 2001. I had to use this size due to space restriction. It's quiet, cleans great, I like the fact you can regulate Jet Dry amount and water hardness settings. Very happy with my choice.

18" Dishwasher

mark 10/17/2019

We purchased this 18" dishwasher for our condo to save space. It cleans dishes better than any dishwasher i have ever owned. It runs so quiet, that it's hard to tell that it is even running unless you are standing next to it. It doesn't hold as many dishes as a 24" model, but with just the two of us, we have found that with the larger one that we used to have, i would start to smell before it was full enough to run. When this one gets full, we turn it on and shortly thereafter the dishes are clean and we are ready to go again.

A Thing of Beauty with Functionality Too!

vphb66 9/23/2019

We love our new dishwasher for our condo! It is SO quiet and, whereas we used to put off doing dishes, now we can do them anytime without concern for the noise. The dishes come out perfect every time (and we credit pushing that EXTRA SHINE button)! One small glitch: our former dishwasher had a larger tray for holding the silverware that we had grown accustomed to using so we traded out the smaller one this dishwasher had for our old one (just a matter of personal preference in terms of liking a larger holder). This did not affect our 5-star rating, though, as some people may prefer a smaller holder.

18" Stainless Steel

Jackie 7/21/2019

With limited space in my kitchen I chose the Bosch 18". For the first time in 20 years my dishes and silverware are clean! My old 24" Maytage was a piece of junk. I fill and use the 18" at almost the same rate. The racking system is very efficient . And it is so quiet, I wasn't sure it was on at first. I understand that there is no heating element, which causes slow evaporation of moisture, and so condensation on the tub walls. But this also saves any plastics from melting. So I can live with the issue. I run the dishwasher in the early evening and leave the door open through the night. Everything is dry in the morning. I am very happy with my choice and feel it is worth the extra $

No Drying Cycle - Always wet on the inside.

dougjohn52 7/14/2019

This dishwasher comes without a heated drying cycle. Bosch and my seller failed to make this known un-front. The contention is that during a steam cycle which follows rinse with a recommended rinse aid, that the water will be removed from the dishes. Dishes are always wet. Water is always running down the interior sides. There is always a wet smell to this dishwasher. Quiet, but definately not worth it - don't waste your money! Fortunately, it's only used occasionally in my work office or I would junk it.

Quiet, great for dishes, funky top rack and basket

Keith 4/25/2019

We have a small kitchen, so the 18" dishwasher was the perfect appliance for our needs. It is super quiet. You hardly know it is running through the cycles. I am breaking the habit of "pre-cleaning" dishes, because it does such a great job. The silverware basket is a bit odd. I always put forks and knives in with the tines down so that you are not poked accidentally when loading or unloading. However, if the tines go in perpendicular to the basket, they slide right through the holes of the basket and stick out below, which can cause them to catch on the dishwasher when you slide the bottom tray in or out. Consequently, I spend time making sure that the forks go in at an angle so this does not happen, which is annoying. The holes should be smaller or configured in a pattern to prevent that most of the time. Mostly the top rack is fine. However, we have glass tumblers that are slightly oval in shape and they tend to not want to fit in the top rack without flopping over. (My wife says this is just me and it works fine for her.) Mugs and shorter glasses seem to work fine, but the taller glasses, not so much. One final thought is about the dishwasher detergent. We use the Finish Powerball tablets, which work great, but because this is a smaller than standard dishwasher, we were instructed to break them in half to use the appropriate amount of detergent. It has been working fine this way, but is there a better way to do this? Does anyone make small dishwasher tablets? Overall, we love this dishwasher and would recommend it to anyone with a small space for a dishwasher. You need to adjust to the quirks, but it is worth it.

I am very pleased with our new Bosch Dish Washer. It is well designed and does a great job of cleaning the dishes. It is amazingly quiet as it is running. We don't even know that it is running. I couldn't be more pleased with our purchase.

My Special Dishwasher

I took a chance on BOSCH. I was hoping I wasn't just paying for the name and that what they said about this dishwasher was true. Well, was I in for a pleasant surprise!! This dishwasher is quieter than I could have imagined and cleans dishes better than I could have expected. I could not have made better use of my money than I did paying for this great appliance. Thank You BOSCH!!

Recent purchase 18" Dishwasher

Unclegary 12/27/2018

Bought this about a month ago. Great improvement in noise, very quiet. Fairly easy to install. Downsides are the width between tines in the rack make it difficult to load, too small, can barely fit plates, bowls don't rack well. Also, inside stinks awful if you don't run the rinse cycle daily. Dishes come out clean and shiny Would recommend with reservations

Powerful despite the size!

JaelG 12/12/2018

I had to buy an 18" dishwasher due to the size of my kitchen. In addition we're a small family so I was certain that this smaller version would be more fitting for us. Dispite being smaller, by following the manual recomendations for loading, I am able to maximize the space. My mom always comments on how much I'm able to fit in there. I love it! It Leaves my dishes sparkling clean and it's super quite. The only surprise was that it takes a special type of salt to protect the machine from hard water. But I should be purchasing a house a filter to solve that issue. Very satisfied.

Incredibly silent

Marci33 12/11/2018

My new dishwasher is outstanding. So quiet I really have to listen to make sure it's running. Gets the dishes, cutlery, and glassware extremely clean and leaves no spots. I'm not thrilled with the cutlery tray which is flimsy in comparison with the workmanship of the rest of the dishwasher. May this addition to my kitchen have a long and productive work life!

Love my new 18' Bosch Dishwasher

Datooch 12/11/2018

I've owned this dishwasher for a few weeks and I love everything about it. It's extremely quiet, and my dishes are very clean. It's been so nice using this as opposed to hand washing dishes.

My Life is Complete!

Mina 10/31/2018

This is the finest dishwasher money can buy. The first day I ran it I had to place my ear against the consol because I was convinced it wasn't functioning - it's THAT quiet! I have a small space but you can really pack quite a lot into this 18". A breeze to use and the kitcheware come out sparkling!...and dry! Seriously! Who Knew?

Very quiet and cleans dishes extremely well

Ché12 10/22/2018

I bought this for a remodel of our kitchen. We have an open floor plan so having a quiet dishwasher was a must-have. We also got the smaller 18in as space was limited in the kitchen. couldn't be happier with the appliance. Extremely quiet and holds a lot for its size!

So Quiet!

lockel 10/9/2018

I love how quiet this dishwasher is! It's still pretty, new, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to load it to fill it to maximum capacity, but so far, it is doing a great job.

Great machine, but one problem

Cburger 9/28/2018

I bought this machine about 4 months ago. Very happy with the overall functionality of the machine. It cleans the dishes very well and super quiet. It looks great and is the perfect size I needed. The problem is that when there are dirty dishes in the dishwasher and you open it up, it smells terrible! Even if the dishes are rinsed, the smell is very bad. I emailed the company and they suggested cleaning filter, which I did, switching to finish pods, which I did and it still smells. They said it could also be the installation, but it was installed properly. So frustrated with the smells, but overall a great machine.

What A Difference!

Ricky 9/19/2018

We needed a replacement for an 18" dishwasher since we were not happy with the only 1 yr. old one we had. We decided to get the Bosch and hoped it would produce more satisfactory results. Oh, what a difference! Quiet, efficient, and beautiful. We made an excellent choice this time.

Brand New- Does not work

sara 8/27/2018

Unfortunately very disappointed with this dishwasher. I have a brand new one and it does not work. All connections are made properly but the computer must be messed up since it will start a cycle then 3 minutes in, it will reset and be done. Not worth the price. After reading many similar issues online, yet still no way around the computer glitching, lot's of people seem to have this issue.

Never had a worse smelling dishwasher.

Jami 8/21/2018

I cannot believe they can sell this dishwasher. I have had it for a little over a year and every single time I run a load of dishes, the smell afterwards is HORRIFIC. I have called multiple times and after the third they finally tell me that since it does not contain a heater, mold grows when you do not unload the dishwasher AFTER A FEW MINUTES. DO NOT BUY THIS DISHWASHER!

Amazing Compact Dishwasher

Mnov 10/18/2017

We purchased our 300 series dishwasher about 1 month ago. Coming from a full-sized dishwasher, I did not have great expectations that this would compare well. However, this dishwasher actually holds a ton of dishes and for a family of 3, I don't even need to run it everyday. It is most efficient with thin plates as bowls and larger dishes don't stack as well. Regardless, it is a great and quiet dishwasher that I'm happy we purchased. When we renovate our kitchen, we will probably go back to a full size because we can (and we do a lot of entertaining) but this has been an awesome stop-gap in the interim.

Very Quiet

Clark 7/16/2017

Our previous dishwasher was so loud and clunk that we could hear it over the television while we were in the other room. This Bosch unit is so quiet that sometimes we put our ear next to it see if it is in fact running. Super quiet. Love it

Excellent Cleaning

Gail 5/19/2017

Bought compact dishwasher for a 1970s house. The house didn't have a dishwasher. I had one lower kitchen cabinet removed and supplied area with electric and water hookups. Dishwasher slipped in perfectly, and plumber had no problem connecting it for me. I absolutely LOVE it! Agree, it doesn't hold as much as larger dishwasher, but that's why it's compact. I do large pots, pans in sink unless dishwasher is empty and can hold them. Does dishes for two of us washing every other day. No spots on glasses. I don't have to scrape food stuck on plates off as it cleans thoroughly. Very quiet! Had to put my hand on the door to be sure it was running. I absolutely love it!

Great dishwasher

Lakeliving 5/17/2017

Couldn't fit a regular size unit in, so went with the 18". This unit may be small but it's mighty. Watched a video on how best to load, so have that down pat. It is by far the best dishwasher I've owned. I have put the messiest, most stuck on baking dish in it and they have come out clean. Love it and it's quiet too.

Grandmaof4 3/16/2017

We had this dishwasher installed when our kitchen was redone. Its a small kitchen and i needed something small that was energy efficient. This dishwasher is easy to load, fits everything for 2 people and you can't even hear it run! It still takes 2-3 days to fill it, however, I am so happy I have never had an item come out dirty even after the dishes have been sitting unrinsed for 2 days. I highly recommed this unit - it is worth every penny and if you have a husband like mine, who cannot handle noise, this is the unit for you!

Everything Included for DW Hook-up - Quiet, too !

Mancave Dishwasher 2/14/2016

Pleasantly surprised that all plumbing and electrical hook-up parts were included as part of our Bosch Dishwasher. Other brands require separate hook-up material purchases. Installation was a breeze and the dishwasher works perfectly, getting the glasses for our Mancave Bar squeaky clean. A hairline crack in the plastic on top of the door is visible, but only when the door is opened; would also prefer something other more pleasing than the red LED indicators....blue or green would have been better.

Quiet and easy to install

ButlerCtyWsh 2/7/2016

I bought this dishwasher last month to fit into a smaller kitchen cabinet. The electrical was plug and play (given you have an existing GFCI outlet under you cabinet). The water supply was an easy installation of 3/8" compression tee. If you have a garbage disposal, the drain line is an easy knock out of a drain plug and clamping the dishwasher drain on (all materials except for the water supply tee provided). I have installed other dishwasher brands and will say that this has been by far the simplest. The water and drain lines can reach nearly further than just beside the wash basin. I don't know the exact length, but I had plenty of water and drain line length left to utilize. The operation is nice and quiet. 46 decibels is below talking level. The delays, automatic shutoff and rinse aid settings are a must for any dishwasher. The adjustable top rack height makes this 18" dishwasher even roomier for larger pots/pans/woks/etc. If you are looking at a new 18" dishwasher, this is a must!

Super Quiet, Super Small

Jennifer 2/3/2016

We got this for our very small ski condo. A quiet appliance was of utmost importance to my husband - since the kitchen/dining and livingroom are basically all in one space. So, we shelled out the extra bucks for a Bosch. We've been using it for three weekends now. The Bosch is amazingly quiet. You pretty much can't even tell that it is on. Auto mode does seem to create a little noise, but when set to Normal, it goes into Stealth mode . It does an excellent job of cleaning. And, I was very happy to read the manual's explanation of its built-in "leak protection system". So, I needn't worry about it causing flooding for us or our downstairs neighbor. I also like that it has a power On/Off button - which my GE at home does not have. I would, without hesitation, buy a Bosch again. My only qualm with this model is that it *is* quite small and I'm still learning how to load it to maximize space. For two adults and two kids, using it on weekends, with mostly pre-prepared meals that we bring up from home - it is the right size. However, I did just go out and buy a set of extra-short drinking glasses (3" high) so they would fit and allow that extra shelf to flip down for another row on top of them. Teacups work nicely, but mugs are too high for that side with the flip-down shelf. I have thought, as I stand there figuring out how best to configure the plates and bowls... 'You know, I could have just hand-washed these by now...' I'm hoping that with a little more use I'll get it sorted out and it will be a quick load-up and wash scenario. If you can make the space for it, I'd recommend getting a standard-sized model. If you can't, and you need a quiet machine - this model is a good choice.
