                    I have limited space in my kitchen, so I needed a compact dishwasher. It holds quit a bit, does a great job cleaning, and is quiet. I also like the silver ware basket - it separates everything so they always come out clean.

                          Quiet and cleans nicely

                          This 18" dishwasher is very quiet. It cleans thoroughly and in the month I've owned it, there have been no problems. Would have given 5 stars, but the upper rack has a fold down "shelf" for flat items, but when folded down it doesn't completely clear the top of the cups stacked below it. Not a big deal, and with some minor adjustments when loading the "shelf" can be used.

                                We recently upgraded our kitchen with stainless steel appliances and bought this to replace an older 18 inch frigidaire dishwasher. The new one looks great and very modern. We find that it does a better job washing as well and is quieter. Our only beef is that the lower dish tray is award to fill with dishes. Also, if you load bigger plates the tray becomes top heavy and tends to come off its runners. We split the utensil basket and rearranged it which has helped with space utilization. Overall, it is a good investment, but the designers should improve the lower tray to make plates stand straight and add more stability to the tray.

                                      Bought this for our tiny apartment. It looks no e and gets things clean. But it is not very quiet. All of our friends with Boschs say it is super loud. I wonder if something is wrong with our unit.
