Review 1 for Bosch® 5 Cycle Dishwasher - Stainless Steel
I love our new dishwasher!
onDecember 3, 2012
We've had this Bosch dishwasher for about a month now and I can't express how much I love it. It's so quiet that I turned it on the other day, started doing dishes standing right next to it, and had to check for the red light to be sure that the cycle had started. We often turn it on right before we go to bed and we can't hear a thing.
It also cleans better than any other dishwasher that I've ever owned. I love the third rack for cutlery. It allows us to fill the bottom rack with more dishes so that we don't have to run the dishwasher as often.
This is not an inexpensive dishwasher, but it's worth every cent. We also paid for Sears to do the installation and remove the old unit. The guy who installed it was a licensed plumber. He showed up on time and did a great installation job. We're very pleased so far.
Pros: Quiet, cleans well, third rack for cutlery
Cons: none so far.

Review 2 for Bosch® 5 Cycle Dishwasher - Stainless Steel
Excellent cleaning - very quiet
onJuly 31, 2012
When I looked at this Bosch dishwasher, it was advertised as being quiet and I figured like my old one it would be somewhat noisy. I was wrong. This dishwasher is so quiet that I can barely hear the water swishing when I'm standing next to it. When I leave the kitchen I cannot hear it at all.
There were 2 things that concerned me about this dishwasher - it has no dry element and no hard food disposal system. I'm happy to say that the lack of these items are NOT problems. The dishwasher comes with a filter that's very easy to remove that will catch anything like bones. I don't rinse my dishes but I also don't put them in the machine with bones on them. I've left baked on cheese, dried gravy and very small pieces of potato on my plates, and after the wash the dishes are sparkling clean. No cheese - no potato - just squeaky clean. I was removing the filter, but I've yet to find anything in the filter. It must be big chunks of hard stuff that the filter catches. Most food particles are flushed away during the draining process. So this food grinder disposal contraption really only adds noise to your dishwasher and wastes power in my opinion. I'm happy not to have it.
As for the element, it's not needed. The Bosch dishwasher heats the rinse water up to such a hot temperature that the water rapidly evaporates from the dishes. I haven't found any water on my plates, pots/pans, or flatware. The only item that had some water on it was my plastic strainer. That used to retain water even with the old element drying dishwasher I had previously. I must caution you as to how hot the dishes are immediately after the cycle is over. They are too hot to handle immediately after the wash. That's easily resolved by waiting 10 minutes to put them away.
Some of the tines are close together and I was afraid my dishes may not fit as these are thick ceramic plates that are microwave safe. Not a single issue. All plates go in nicely. Bowls are placed in the larger tine section of the machine.
Installation was a bit tricky for me as I had to do some wiring to get the electric box (which comes with the dishwasher) hooked up. I think most people hire an electrician so it shouldn't be a show stopper. It's not complicated, but you need to do it correctly.
I was impressed with the water intake valve. It's located at the sink. This dishwasher comes with a hose that has a wire in it too. The wire provides electricity to the electro-magnetic valve that shuts the water on and off right at the water pipe! This means if the hose ever sprung a leak, water would not be running all day until you get home from work. A friend of mine had a mouse in his house. The rascal bit through the plastic water supply tube completely ruining the kitchen floor and basement with water damage. Bosch figured out a great way to alleviate this situation.
I cannot express enough just how pleased I am with this SHX7ER55UC dishwasher. I love the 3rd utensil rack too. Everything comes out spotlessly clean. It's quiet. It looks great in my kitchen. The controls are all hidden at the top of the door which gives the unit a very sleek look. It feels solid when I open it and close it. It's obvious that it was built with quality in mind. This is my first Bosch appliance. I think I'll stick with Bosch from now on.
Pros: Durable, Simple setting, Easy to use, High quality, Stylish

Review 3 for Bosch® 5 Cycle Dishwasher - Stainless Steel
onDecember 4, 2011
My old dishwasher just died-3 weeks to Christmas! Just got this machine and installed it same night- easy install due to good directions/engineering. Very easy to level up, rear leveling done from the front. You really cant hear this machine running!! Cleans great on normal -the 30min cycle is perfect for glasses and light soiling. Make sure you use the liquid jet-dry.
Note, the water supply fitting is a 3/4 FIP female- it comes with an adapter to 3/4 MIP-3/8 compression male (to fit the braided dishwasher hoses) but I swapped out the supply ball valve to 1/2 pipe in/out and then adapter up to 3/4MIP.
