Bosch Dishwasher Poor Long Term Quality
SHX46 Dishwasher - Complaint
Purchased the SHX46 dishwasher as part of a kitchen remodel in 2007. Control board failed at 2 years, labor $100 not covered. At 5 years, recirculating pump failed, repair almost $400 including diagnosis.
This is not the level of quality I expect in a higher end appliance. Bosch service offered only $30 discount for part if I ordered it from them direct. I asked for a 50% prorata credit toward a new machine, they declined.
Bottom line: Bosch may rate tops in all the consumer rags, but the long term quality just isn't there. $500 in repairs within 5 years for a machine that cost $950 just isn't reasonable.
I got a new KitchenAid rather than give Bosch any follow on business.
