Comment:
After a week we noticed damage to the cabinet beside the dishwasher. When the cabinet side panel was removed we saw that Bosch has a small vent to the left of the dishwasher. Two tech guys came out and said that was just the design. One suggested the panel was too close to the dishwasher, but the cabinet was built to Bosch specs. This seems to be a design flaw and I wonder how many others are having water damage to their cabinets that they may not be aware of. The Bosch rep suggested buying anothe brand. Not too many companies suggest you go with someone else.

Comment:
I bought this because of the look, the price was within my budget and the name and reviews were good. Maybe I have a lemon, but what a piece of junk! Its flimsy, the bottom rack pulls right out and off the track and the guides have come off numerous times. I've had error codes that tell me the drain is clogged but its not. I've had the repair man here twice already to find the clog that's not there! Another error code that indicates a heat sensor, now I'm having the faulty pump replaced! All this in ONE month!! I fear a possibility of fire with the heat sensor code. I know cannot leave my house at any time while it is running, for my own peace of mind! I also found out the Bosch does not have a food grinder built in, which I did not know. Repairmen should be the sales person!! My Maytag lasted almost 20 years! Very disappointed in this new dishwasher! I thought I did enough research, but I see there is always more to know!
