"Titanium" means "white" ?
Folks, don't believe what you read on the Bosch website that they have the "titanium" color dishwasher. It is actually WHITE with a stainless handle. When I called to find out WTH was going on, they claimed ... read full review14 Replies - Latest reply on 05/05/2008

Do NOT buy a Bosch Dishwasher!

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA -- I have a Bosch silence plus unit that I purchased about 4 months ago and it is quiet but other than that it is the worst dishwasher I have ever owned. Its capacity is substandard unless you may be using children’s plates and the silverware container is a joke!

It is designed so that as the plastic expands from the hot water and the knives and forks become entrapped when it cools and jam in place. I have literally been able to pick up the entire basket of silverware while trying to extract one fork from the basket after washing.
It also leaves soap scum on the glassware and is not close to what I expected for the price and doesn’t compare to the 12 year old Frigidaire that it replaced.
Never again will I purchase a Bosch appliance, stick to the headphones and sound systems, they are great, leave the dish washing to people who build appliances.

I have owned the washer and dryer for less than 4 years and in the last week I have had to replace the washer and the dryer quit working. I have been lied to on the phone while they were trying to gouge me for a service call.

I paid way too much for Bosch, thinking I was getting a reliable washer and dryer.
Bosch is a waste of money and they don't quit with the overpriced appliance. They will try to gouge you again when (not if) it breaks down.
DO NOT BUY BOSCH!!
Dishwasher, Way too small
We bought a Bosch dishwasher at the end of November. We paid $650.00 for it. That would have been fine, it does clean the dishes well. However, it is such a poor design. The only thing we can fit in there ... read full review2 Replies - Latest reply on 05/08/2011

Never ever buy a Bosch front loading washer. Faulty metal hinges that break. Weak plastic control panel that cracks and will allow rust to develop. A disgrace to the German reputation of quality engineering. Would not be so bad if Bosch had a competent service department. Unfortunately they cannot even manage to keep records of complaints and contacts, let alone help. Also, good luck trying to find a means to escalate a complaint. Premium pricing for an inferior product that will make you write reviews like this one. In over 50 years this is the first time I have been upset enough to write a product review. Their warranty is the same as washers that are half the price. Maybe Bosch should stick to making brake pads, something they are good at, and stay out of the home appliance business. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 11/18/2010Add reply
Bosch Washer is a loser
My Bosch Front Load Washer is awful! It gets smelly from gunk building up around the rubber gasket. It definitely uses substantially less water and electricity. It would be nice if it also cleaned ... read full review3 Replies - Latest reply on 06/12/2012

Customers should not have to pay for a faulty hinge from normal usage! Over $400 to be able to fix this little problem!

CLEVELAND, OHIO -- The inner glass on the lower oven shattered while baking. The warranty repairmen have been out 3 times to repair. It has taken over 6 weeks to receive the correct part, which was taken off of a floor model. Bosch Customer Service never returned my phone call for assistance after initial contact was made. This oven had been installed for 2 months when the glass shattered.
After the 2nd trip the repair people called to tell us the new glass would not be shipped from Germany until mid-June 2008. The glass shattered in the beginning of April 2008.
