Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Barely adequate!

Submitted by Here’s Johnie - 1/9/2022

Portions of load come out wet even on extra dry setting. Racks are poorly designed and too tight forcing double spacing for plates and useless for bowls. Took hours to connect to the app including over one hour on the phone with support PS, don't ever buy with installation from Home Depot. Their current delivery/installation company has catch-alls built into their contract allowing the to refuse any installation that they think they're being underpaid for, so unless you're prepared, you'd better have several extra hundred on hand to pay for a private plumber. Worst purchase experience in my life, from a company anyway.

18-inch Bosch dishwasher is a five-star machine

Submitted by Suburban Burqueño - 12/19/2021

This dishwasher replaced another Bosch. We're so pleased with this brand that it has becomes the dishwasher of choice when a replacement becomes necessary. It's very quiet, easy to load and program. It does an excellent job on the dishes. Unlike our previous Bosch, this one doesn't require salts. On some brands we've owned, the detergent compartment stops closing properly. This has never happened with a Bosch. Highly recommended for anyone who neees a smaller (18-inch) mcahine.

Amazing Dishwasher for Small Spaces

Submitted by Ian C - 10/13/2021

This is a great dishwasher. Not only is it very compact and sleek, but it also holds a TON of dishes. The racks are very customizeable and the 3rd top rack is the best for flatware. The app it comes with is somewhat helpful but not a huge benefit. Cleans dishes very well and is extremely quiet, which was a must as it is kept in an open-concept kitchen.

Almost perfect.

Submitted by Dutchy - 10/11/2021

This dishwasher is exactly what I wanted. I gave it 4 stars because there were no English "user" instructions in the booklet included. I found them on-line and printed them out. If a use booklet is included with the purchase of this dishwasher, please make certain that instructions in the English language are in the booklet.

Quiet hard working dishwasher

Submitted by Rocco - 9/30/2021

I believe Bosch makes the best dishwashers. Don't let the fact that this is an 18" fool you on how much you can fit in this dishwasher. This is perfect for our small place, and it is so so quiet! I love the adjustable middle shelf and the top utensil tray. We only use half the soap needed and the dishes come out sparkling clean. It also alerts me via the app when the cycle is done. I highly recommend this unit.

Works great--in the only cycle it will let me use

Submitted by Fleur - 9/26/2021

This seems to be a really great dishwasher. Unfortunately, it only works on the 2-hour cycle, so I have to wait till I fill it with dishes. It does a great job, though. Efforts to get it replaced have been fruitless so far. Home Depot says Bosch won't respond to their request for delivery of a replacement machine.

Awesome 18" Dishwasher

Submitted by Sammy - 9/22/2021

We are loving this dishwasher. Our dishes come out looking very clean. The third rack is such a great feature for all our small items we worry about falling through the other two racks. The capacity is less than a 24" of course, but this 18" is versatile, with tines that fold down if needed.

Very pleased

Submitted by Happy Washer - 9/20/2021

This is our first dishwasher for our apartment and we are very pleased. It is a long cycle, 2 hours, but it saves water compared to long periods of washing by hand and is energy-efficient. I love the top tray for utensils, but I do rinse the food from them first, as I've noticed they don't get as clean otherwise. In all, we are very satisfied.

Great dishwasher

Submitted by Jayzo - 9/19/2021

I love this Bosch dishwasher. It's a tiny 18' but perfect for my small apartment. It's sooooo quiet I barely know it's on. When I first tried it I did not put in rinse aid and I could tell dishes were not dry and spotted. After using rinse aid and even sometimes extra dry feature it was great. Worth the money.

Quiet, but already has issues.

Submitted by Anna - 9/17/2021

The dishwasher is very quiet, and the shelves are usually easy to maneuver, although the bottom shelf tends to get off track. But I've only had it a few months and already the lid to the detergent compartment has stopped working and will not close. It's a very strange closure and I was afraid it might not last. It also doesn't get the dishes completely clean; lipstick stains remain on plastic tumblers, etc. I do really like the top shelf for tableware.

Very nice… very happy with it.

Submitted by Randal J - 9/13/2021

While the size is smaller than the normal dishwasher, Bosch has done a great job of using the space. It hold a deceptively large amount of dishes. We have been very pleased with the purchase.

Quiet, configurable, and versatile

Submitted by TheyCallMeMcGyver - 9/12/2021

The sound coming from this dishwasher is super low, almost non existent. At first we wondered if it wasn't working it's that quiet. The internal rack system is configurable in so many ways. We opted to go with the silverware tray up above instead of the basket down below. As for quality and workmanship this unit is excellent. Fit and finish is top notch. The internal hot water heater does a great job getting up to temp. Dishes come out clean always. We started using the rinse aid, which makes the rinse water more "slippery" which helps with the final drying.

Nice machine

Submitted by Pishica - 8/18/2021

Problem: my Fiesta dishes: plates too big for center rack to be lowered, bowls are too big to go in slots for bowls, glasses won't stand in center rack because it has to be raised to center position for plates. However, it does a bang up job!

We ran our dishwasher for the first time last night and were blown away by the results! It was so quiet it did not distract us from the next room over. When it was done, everything was clean and streak-free!
