Bosch Complaint - Bosch Quality
I too remodeled my kitchen in recent years and purchased Bosch appliances. I am already planning my replacement appliances. My dishwasher didn't work from day one. They came out three times. The water never heated and it took five hours to go through one washing cycle. I said to the first technician, seems like it must be a thermostat. After basically replacing every part, the third guy ordered the thermostat. I also bought Bosch double ovens with the top being a convection oven. Hinges on both have already been replaced and cost hundreds of dollars. The hinges have again gone on the bottom oven. I am lucky to have it right next to a wall/doorway so I can wedge in a plastic container to keep the door closed when I cook. I contacted Bosch directly and never got a response. They looked great but we would have been better off with your standard less expensive brands. At least they might last more than a year. Thumbs down, Bosch. I tell anyone I know remodeling to stay away from the brand. (I haven't had any trouble with my cooktop, but I figure I'm now jinxing myself on that, too.) And most service people stay away from working on Bosch like the plague. They say it's hard for them to get parts, too!
