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.

Submitted by Kelly - 7/31/2019

I've only had this for two months, but it's an excellent performer. While it's small, it's mighty - and does the job very well. My only issue is the lack of a heated drying cycle, but that's fairly minor in contrast to the job it does cleaning.

Beautiful dishes every time

Submitted by Kelly - 7/29/2019

I've had this dishwasher for a couple of months now. At first I was skeptical that something so small could deliver, but it does, with no issues. I usually rinse my dishes first, mostly out of habit - but you really don't need to with this dishwasher. My only complaint is that sometimes things come out wet, but they are sparkling clean. It's extremely quiet as well - some of the cycle you hear nothing! Other parts you may hear slightly but it's much quieter than any other dishwasher I've had.

BOSCH Dishwashers SPE53U56UC Most Excellent

Submitted by Bernard - 2/27/2019

This dishwasher is the best we have ever owned. I have a degree in chemistry and tested this dishwasher with the toughest dried food particles I could find. I left yellow rice on a spoon in the appliance overnight and it came out clean. I have left a grits pot and it has come out clean and spotless. The best test was a pot I use for potpurri and had caused some damage to the stainless steel. The pot is almost back to new with this dishwasher. I can only say to the people that give this machine less than five stars that they may not be following the instructions correctly. You can load lots of items in the dishwasher and like all appliances you need to load carefully.

Quiet and Cleans Well

Submitted by Mike - 12/20/2018

After two days of looking and comparing dishwashers, I bought the Bosch dishwasher about three months ago to replace my old dishwasher. I have to say it does a great job of cleaning and drying the dishes. It is very quiet. The only problem I have with it is the racks for glasses and cups and the small silverware basket. The bottom of the rack for glasses and cups are too narrow and the backs, other than the top, are too short. In the picture, the blue plastic glass will be on it's side after washing so it has to be nested between two glasses on the higher rack. The six ounce glass in the middle of the picture will fall over when the rack is moved so that size works best nested between the two tea cups in the back. I had to take off one of the plastic shelves to make this arrangement work. Plenty of room for plates and bowls. I'm dealing with it but am truly dissatisfied with my choice of dishwashers. It's 5 stars up to the loading of it. That in itself is minus 2 stars.

I bought this in June 2018. Can't say enough bout it. It has a salt dispenser for hard water homes to me that's priceless. It's super quiet does an amazing job on cleaning and drying them. Always comes out spot free. I only use finish dishwashing products. Can't wait til I can own more Bosch products.

Build like a tank

Submitted by Terry56468 - 8/20/2018

My wife and I are very impressed with the quality of this dishwasher. Unfortunately we experienced an error code the first time we ran it. We had to call customer service who told us to call the local Bosch repairman. After looking at it, he decided to order a part before tearing into it. We had to wait a week for the part to come in and be replaced. This eliminated the the error condition. We were less than confident that the dishwasher won't leak after seeing what part and how it had to be replaced. We were also surprised that the unit purchased from Lowes still had water in it when we unpacked it. We wanted to buy the best product regardless of price but we were disappointed that spending this much money and have the dishwasher arrive needing parts replaced. Regardless of these issues, we still think it is an excellent product.

Great Little Dishwasher with Big Features

Submitted by MBurdette - 5/15/2016

Purchased this for our kitchen cottage remodel. Space was at a premium so this fit the bill. My recliner is 5 feet from this dishwasher and I can barely hear it. The wife loves the features; child lock, built-in water softener, etc. You pay a premium for smaller space appliances, but in our case it was well worth it.

Water entry Is a little noisy, but the actual running of the dishwasher is so quiet you can speak in a normal tone, and you won't have to turn up the volume on your TV or stereo! Also, my dishes come out squeaky-clean (no more secondary hand washing). Thanks for such a great product.
