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.

Bosch Dishwasher

Submitted by Dano - 6/30/2022

We love our dishwasher! We bought the 18" version since we had limited options with our cabinets, but the dishwasher really maximizes the space. We love the adjustable racks and the quiet operation, too.

Quiet and good for small spaces

Submitted by Deee - 6/26/2022

Since it's quiet it's really good for small spaces. I would like to see the length of the cycle be shorter. 2 hours and 36 minutes seems lengthy. But overall I'm very happy with my purchase

Best dishwasher I've had

Submitted by Mario - 6/11/2022

I had been waiting to buy a Bosch DW, so I was almost happy when our old DW died. I love how clean dishes come out, how quiet it is and the thoughtful design. My only regret is not having bought it sooner.

Very Happy With our Dishwasher

Submitted by nordic norm - 5/13/2022

We are very pleased with our dishwasher. It's 18" width works well in our space challenged kitchen and is big enough for us to fit a day's worth of dishes and pans. We really like the top 3rd rack for silverware and spatulas. Although we do not use a spot rinse preventer and we have hard water, the glasses still come out sparking.

Out of this world amazing!!

Submitted by Bronte - 4/5/2022

To be fair, I will say that my husband and I did not have ANY dishwasher for the first 3.5 years of our marriage, 1.5 of those years being during COVID. So just HAVING a dishwasher is amazing to us, saving us so much dishwashing time! I don't have many dishwashers to compare it to, but it's way better than those dishwashers that I grew up with in the early 2000's. We've actually been testing our dishwasher, putting in dishes dirtier and dirtier each time to see how it does. And it reigns supreme! This morning I put my big stainless steel pan in, leaving the brow and black residue at the bottom from stuck on food. It took it almost all off!!!! Loving it! The small size is great also! Only downside is that if you leave the pull-out silverware tray in (which I think is super convenient), then you have to put your tall glasses on the bottom rack instead of the top. This hasn't been an issue for us though. They get cleaned great on the bottom too, just fit a little funny. If you use the basket for silverware and take out the silverware pull-out tray, then you'll have no problem with tall glasses up top.

Great Machine

Submitted by ms13sp - 3/29/2022

Most dishwashers that I have had or used have been big and bulky. This one is slick and quiet. Even on its heaviest wash it doesn't make a sound. I love the fact that I am able to connect over the Internet to check settings and schedule many operations. Being able to also recieve alerts about low rinse and tablets is a time saver.

I LOVE my Bosch dishwasher!

Submitted by Joan - 2/2/2022

For many years I suffered with other brands of dishwashers that were horribly noisy, and required that I pre-wash by hand to get dishes clean. NOT ANY MORE, thanks to my Bosch 300. Having a small kitchen that requires a smaller dishwasher I was afraid that I would again have to suffer with noise and cleaning issues, until I read up on the attributes of Bosch. They were absolutely true and saved me suffering through issues with another washer. Thank you.

Bosch 300 series 18 inch

Very smelly after a cycle!

Submitted by Decosetter - 1/30/2022

It's so quiet and honestly pretty cute because it's only 18 inches. I haven't quite figured out the optimal loading but my complaint is it smells SO terrible after I wash a load is done. Even thE dishes themselves have a residual order. I read a lot of complaints online about this I don't understand why it hasn't been fixed. You shouldn't be selling it if it's offgassing like this. Very disappointing!

First time washer

Submitted by Sim Washer - 1/24/2022

Barely adequate!

Submitted by Here’s Johnie - 1/9/2022

Portions of load come out wet even on extra dry setting. Racks are poorly designed and too tight forcing double spacing for plates and useless for bowls. Took hours to connect to the app including over one hour on the phone with support PS, don't ever buy with installation from Home Depot. Their current delivery/installation company has catch-alls built into their contract allowing the to refuse any installation that they think they're being underpaid for, so unless you're prepared, you'd better have several extra hundred on hand to pay for a private plumber. Worst purchase experience in my life, from a company anyway.

18-inch Bosch dishwasher is a five-star machine

Submitted by Suburban Burqueño - 12/19/2021

This dishwasher replaced another Bosch. We're so pleased with this brand that it has becomes the dishwasher of choice when a replacement becomes necessary. It's very quiet, easy to load and program. It does an excellent job on the dishes. Unlike our previous Bosch, this one doesn't require salts. On some brands we've owned, the detergent compartment stops closing properly. This has never happened with a Bosch. Highly recommended for anyone who neees a smaller (18-inch) mcahine.

Amazing Dishwasher for Small Spaces

Submitted by Ian C - 10/13/2021

This is a great dishwasher. Not only is it very compact and sleek, but it also holds a TON of dishes. The racks are very customizeable and the 3rd top rack is the best for flatware. The app it comes with is somewhat helpful but not a huge benefit. Cleans dishes very well and is extremely quiet, which was a must as it is kept in an open-concept kitchen.

Quiet hard working dishwasher

Submitted by Rocco - 9/30/2021

I believe Bosch makes the best dishwashers. Don't let the fact that this is an 18" fool you on how much you can fit in this dishwasher. This is perfect for our small place, and it is so so quiet! I love the adjustable middle shelf and the top utensil tray. We only use half the soap needed and the dishes come out sparkling clean. It also alerts me via the app when the cycle is done. I highly recommend this unit.

This seems to be a really great dishwasher. Unfortunately, it only works on the 2-hour cycle, so I have to wait till I fill it with dishes. It does a great job, though. Efforts to get it replaced have been fruitless so far. Home Depot says Bosch won't respond to their request for delivery of a replacement machine.

Awesome 18" Dishwasher

Submitted by Sammy - 9/22/2021

We are loving this dishwasher. Our dishes come out looking very clean. The third rack is such a great feature for all our small items we worry about falling through the other two racks. The capacity is less than a 24" of course, but this 18" is versatile, with tines that fold down if needed.

This is our first dishwasher for our apartment and we are very pleased. It is a long cycle, 2 hours, but it saves water compared to long periods of washing by hand and is energy-efficient. I love the top tray for utensils, but I do rinse the food from them first, as I've noticed they don't get as clean otherwise. In all, we are very satisfied.

I love this Bosch dishwasher. It's a tiny 18' but perfect for my small apartment. It's sooooo quiet I barely know it's on. When I first tried it I did not put in rinse aid and I could tell dishes were not dry and spotted. After using rinse aid and even sometimes extra dry feature it was great. Worth the money.

Quiet, but already has issues.

Submitted by Anna - 9/17/2021

The dishwasher is very quiet, and the shelves are usually easy to maneuver, although the bottom shelf tends to get off track. But I've only had it a few months and already the lid to the detergent compartment has stopped working and will not close. It's a very strange closure and I was afraid it might not last. It also doesn't get the dishes completely clean; lipstick stains remain on plastic tumblers, etc. I do really like the top shelf for tableware.
