HEED MY BOSCH WARNING!
Bosch Integra Dishwasher - Complaint
I have had this Bosch dishwasher for several years now and it’s truly a piece of crap! All stainless steel. The Integra 800 model SHX68M09UC. A $1,300.00+ dollar impressive looking piece of junk. If I don’t pre wash everything I put into the machine is comes out dirty. I email the Bosch Company when I first got the machine and they just blew me off as someone who has no idea how to load a dish washer. And I was told of how many satisfied customers they have. What bologna!
I am 62 years old and have been loading dish washers all my life. And never had the results I have had with this machine. I have used every type of automatic dishwashing detergent on the market, makes no difference. I have loaded items spaced way apart to get maximum cleaning, makes no difference. The mechanics of the machine is fine. Arms working, nothing in them plugging up the spray holes. The screen filter is clean as a whistle! If you have any type of egg, starch, potato, grease, spaghetti sauce, residue forget it. Lipstick on glasses, food particles on silverware or utensils forget it! You literally have to clean everything with hot water and soap with a sink brush before putting any items into this dishwasher. I guess you could say I use this Bosch as a final wash and sterilizer, that’s all!
I can tell you what I think. The Bosch Company is breaking its neck to put out the quietest dishwasher on the market. To do this they use two small separate pumps, one for the bottom arm, and one for the top arm. And they do not have the proper pressure to do the job. Who in the hell cares if you hear some whooshing going on, as long as everything comes out clean! I spent Christmas at my Sons. They have a two year old Kitchen Aid dishwasher. I was amazed as I watched my Son and Daughter In-law load their washer. They didn’t clean off anything! And all the glass, dishes, pots, silverware, came out squeaky clean. I could not believe my eyes. They didn’t ever care if the spoons nested together! Seeing that, even made me more pissed off! I don’t even feel right trying to sell this unit to someone else. I wouldn’t do that to them. So, stay the hell away from the Bosch line of dishwashers.
