Semi Integrated Dishwasher

Infolight technology

Due to it’s very quiet operation, the manufacturer came up with Infolight technology, which is basically a red light that shines on the floor to indicate that a wash cycle is not yet complete. This way, you avoid opening the dishwasher before it completes a cycle.

Self-latching door

The self-latching door gives room for convenient operation of the appliance because it stays at the same open position until you complete loading and offloading

the dishwasher. At an angle of less than 20° it will shut automatically.


The Eco-Cycle is best when handling delicate dishes because it lowers the temperature and length of each cycle in order to conserve energy.

If you are looking for a similar performing Bosh dishwasher but a little bit cheaper try the Bosh 500 series – see amazon current offer here.

What did users say?


  • I had to replace my 10-years old dishwasher with this one and I totally love it. It’s smart, quiet and efficient. I consider myself a satisfied customer. Thank you Bosh! Oh, and make sure to check the amazon offer first, as I found it in many other shops way more expensive. This is where I got it from


  • We are a large family and after a Sunday meal there are a lot of dishes to clean… The thing I like most about this dishwasher, compared to the previous models I owned, is the third rack that works well and offers enough space to hold all of my utensils. However, a heated drying option would have been nice to have.


  • It’s a high quality appliance no doubt about that – but, to be frank here I still can’t seem to fit in the larger pots and pans I have, and so I end up doing those by hand…

The verdict

Cartoon character in blue color

Of course, there are still some complains as there are with any other appliance or device. People’s needs are very diverse and no single dishwasher can satisfy everybody. Though, I can openly state here that this Bosh dishwasher will serve to most people needs. It’s a well-balanced appliance that offers incredible clean dishes and in the same time consumes little 

resources. At the time of writing this review, I found the lowest price on Amazon – here is the link to it.

Here is my rating and how it performed in my testing. As you can see it did great. There are only a few that scored so high.

  1. 1. June 2016 – purchased Bosch dishwasher with 1 year warranty, professionally installed by Best Buy Geek Squad
    2. Week of 12 December 2016 dish washer failed to function, made multiple calls to Bosch Customer Service for phone support
    3. 18 December 2016 – dishwasher hard down
    4. 19 December 2016 – called Bosch Customer Service to schedule a repair. Told that no repair could be done until 28 December 2016 (9 days later). Escalated to supervisor who scheduled repairman visit in 2 hours. Repairman “Ron” visited, fiddled with controls, made dishwasher work. Had NO SPARE PARTS to effect a lasting repair.
    5. 29 December 2016 – Repairman “Ron” made repair visit with some spare parts. Told me he replaced the “controller”, got machine to work.
    6. 06 January 2017 – repeat of earlier defect; dishwasher fails to function. Called Bosch Customer Service, escalated to Sean Sandberg who REFUSED to get a repair visit scheduled earlier than 11 January 2017, almost 1 week later.

    Bosch sold me a lemon dishwasher. I demand a NEW dishwasher as existing dishwasher does not work after 2 repair visits in less than 3 weeks. Sean Sandberg at Bosch Customer Service refused to provide:
    a) a working dishwasher per the ONE YEAR WARRANTY or to
    b) schedule a repair within a reasonable amount of time

  2. Thank you very much for your video. I found it very informative and appreciate your honest comments. I am going to purchase the 800 based on what you shared. Thank you!

  3. We got a lemon. it quit draining. Two pumps, two control boards, and one wiring harness later it was deemed unrepairable.
