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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you. Please consult a sales associate about delivery options.

Love this quiet Dishwasher

Submitted by RayB - 1/3/2022

First the complaints 1. When the installer came he took out our previous Kenmore dishwasher and then promptly told us we needed to get a plumber because we needed a different adapter to our sink.....So he just left the new machine in the garage. 2. Luckily, our plumber was able to come THAT DAY and was able to correct the water adaptor and install the dishwasher BUT he told us we needed to get an electrician because the Bosch dishwasher could not be "hard wired" like the Kenmore was. It has a plug and we had NO outlet under the sink. Several days passed before the Electrician could come and easily install an outlet. Now, as for the dishwasher itself, we LOVE it. We're still getting used to the best way to load it and to the various wash cycles etc but it has worked well. I'd like a little better drying cycle since water usually pools on top of glasses. The Biggest problem is that this diswasher is SO quiet, we often can't tell if the cycle is running or not. I guess our dishwasher does NOT have a light projected on the floor but that would be very helpful. Nonetheless, we are very pleased with the quality of this diswasher and especially with how quiet it is to operate

Some problems

Submitted by Beverly - 12/26/2021

I like a lot of things about my new Bosch Dishwasher BUT I am haveing great difficulity to input settings and getting it to start with that setting. If it changes then I can't get it to stay on that change it always go back to auto. Several times I thought I had it set and it does not start it just sits there. It is getting the dishes very clean and I especially like how quiet it is.

No indication when cycle is finished

Submitted by knitter - 12/15/2021

This is my second Bosch dishwasher and I purchased this one beause it wa the only white one in the ABT store. I am disappointed that there is no indication as to when the cycle is finished except for a slight beep. Also, the installer did not tell me I had only three seconds to close the door once I pushed start. I do not like the extended outside handle.

Not up to Bosch standards

Submitted by Need function over form - 12/13/2021

Having moved many times over, I've experienced quite a few brands of dishwashers. Bosch has been my top choice - until this one. As I senior on my own, when I began renovations to my current kitchen, I looked for a reliable, basic dishwasher at a good price. This model seemed to meet my needs and indeed, I'm satisfied with the cycle choices and ability to clean the dishes. It also very quiet so thumbs up on that. Loading the dishwasher is another matter and my primary complaint. Both upper & lower racks simply do not permit me to load it to capacity resulting in my having to run the machine way more often than I would like. I do not recommend this dishwasher.

Aggravating Lower Shelf Problem

Submitted by Unhappy - 11/3/2021

We did a lot of research prior to purchashing a dishwasher. We wanted it to be quiet and to produce clean, dry dishes. This dishwasher does that. However. when the lowest shelf is even half full, it will not stay on the tracks to get it in or our of the dishwasher. You have to manually lift and push or pull to move it. This is extremely annoying. We purchased an extended warrantee, but no one will respond to my feedback about this problem. Both the engineering of this product and the customer service from the company are very disappointing. Definitively would not purchase from them again.

Best Dishwasher

Best dishwasher for performance, appearance, and price. Have been using it for a month or so and are very happy with the cleanliness, low noise, and ease of use. Looks great and fit in my 1950's original cabinetry. And all for a reasonable price. Couldn't reccomend more.

Submitted by Ellen - 10/17/2021

Love how it cleans, how quiet it is and the length of the cycle(s). But, the tines are too close together. W ehave hand made dishes, which are thicker than normal, so it is often difficult to fit all the dishes in the machine. I often have to leave a space between tines so the dishes don't touch each other.

Ascenta® Dishwasher SHX3AR72UC Review

Submitted by Phil - 10/4/2021

I like this equipment. It is very quiet and does a good job of cleaning the dishes. It seems that the inside space is a bit smaller that the other dishware we had and the arrangment of the brackets that hold the dishes are spaced a bit too close. These however are minor issues.

Always Bosch!

Submitted by MASFlorida - 10/2/2021

After retiring and moving to Florida, I finally added a dishwasher to my kitchen here. I had a Bosch in our former home that still ran like new when we moved. I never had a problem with it, and my new Bosch runs just the same. Absolutely no problems since the day it was installed - and QUIET! I can have guests in and about the kitchen and they don't even know thrr we dishwasher is running! I love it!

Does the Job

Submitted by Gerrie - 10/1/2021

I recently purchased the Bosch dishwasher as a replacement for an older, different brand dishwasher that came with my condo. This was the first time I was purchasing a new dishwasher so I reseached the top brands. I am familiar with the Bosch name and its excellent products and their reputation. Not surprisingly, Bosch kept coming up on top. I purchased the Ascenta dishwasher and I am very pleased with how my dishes, glasses, and silverware are cleaned and dryed. Having 2 removable silverware baskets is a plus; if I have a large baking dish, it's easy to take out one basket for more room. Plus, it is amazingly quiet. Worth the price.

Love My New Bosch

Submitted by Babe - 9/23/2021

I replaced my 30+ dishwasher and was never expected such a fantastic performance. I had large jars with tea stains. I hand washed and scrub them, but the stains lightened, but never looked clean. They were stainless, bright and shiny as were everything in the dishwasher when it finished. So happy. Feel like everything washed looks brand new. No water in bottoms of curved cups and glasses. My only complaint is the lack of a complete operating manual. I had to download it from the computer. The thrill of opening the washer and seeing sparkling dry kitchenware is still awesome.

Broke within 6 months

Submitted by Scot - 9/22/2021

The rinse agent dispenser started leaking within a couple of months, and the control panel stops responding regularly so you have to reset it by holding the start button down for 3 seconds. Amazing that it has two problems in less thn 6 months. I would not buy it again.

Acenta Diswasher - dependable quality!

Submitted by Freddy - 9/9/2021

We've had several dishwashers during the 35 years we've lived in our home, but the most long-lasting and dependable have been Bosch models. When we needed to replace our formel Bosch after nearly 20 years of dependable service, the Bosch Acenta was the obvious choice. After a few months, happy to report that all works well, no issues and the Bosch dependability remains. Very happy with the purchase; highly recommend!

Submitted by Dishwife - 9/9/2021

This dishwasher is wonderful! When I first got it, I tested it with some dishes that needed heavy duty cleaning and it worked perfectly! I love the clean look, it's easy to use and it does the job well. I've even tried more natural pods instead of Finish and it did a great job even then. Highly highly recommend!!

So quiet i thought it was broken

Submitted by Larry J - 9/6/2021

Gets dishes clean and does so in an incredibly quiet way. My former Bosch had a light that was visible on the floor and let you know it was on. This model does not have one, even though the welcoming email I received said it did. And I wish it did. I am also not so sure why there is both an on/off button and a start button. But that is just a matter of getting used to pushing two buttons instead of one. The lack of a visible on light is why I did not give it five stars.

Ascenta® Dishwasher SHX3AR72UC

Submitted by novadave - 8/28/2021

Well, I liked my first model of Asenta so much that I got the newer one when my pump went out. I have to say that the new one is not quite as quiet as the older one but it seems to clean better - a good tradeoff. I don't know why it is beeping after a time washing. I'm guesing it is telling me the wash is finished but I don't need to know that instantly. I will figure that out myself. All things considered, this is a great dishwasher guys. Just get one, use it ten years, and get another one when it breaks down. Use the repair money to help pay for the new one. The installers do a nice job and they haul away the old one. So far, I've had a good experience and I believe everyone taking the plunge with Boxch Ascenta will too.

Submitted by Kk86 - 8/21/2021

I like this dishwasher so far, except the layout makes it difficult to fit a lot in it, and I don't feel like it cleans as well as the old one I had to replace. The old dishwasher was a different brand but dishes were cleaner and more dry when it was finished washing. For the price of this dishwasher I feel it should do a better job.

A couple of concerns

Submitted by Catt - 8/17/2021

Bosch Ascenta dishwasher is very quiet and cleans excellently. The only downside is the multiple rack configurations which limit flexibility in loading dishes of multiple sizes in multiple location. The silverware baskets only allow single items loaded in pre-configured slots or in a wide open basket. More basket divisions when the screen is removed would be more helpful.

Good dishwasher

Submitted by Gary - 8/11/2021

It washes dishes very well and is organized well so that you can add alot of dishes and glasses. Under the finisher add door, the finisher has to go into s small area and makes it almost inpossible to add without spilling. The spillige runs down the inside of the door. Also it has no external indication that it is running so you dont know when it is finished unless you hear it running or open the door.

Purchase and review of dish washer

Submitted by FARA - 7/26/2021

I bought it from Home Depot. It had been recommended by an acquaintance. I had to pay delivery, installation and the parts for installation. That was a nightmare in many ways, too much to reiterate the detains. T was not installed for 2 months and 2 days and there was so many mistakes and comparable diagnoses, none of which were even close but bottom line it was not even hooked up correctly. It finally was corrected and it is the best dishwasher I have ever uses. I would agree it is a very good appliance. I have learned a lot of lessons along the way and could give plenty of suggestions and experiences I could pass on.
