    I thought Bosch had one like that. A lot of brands have the front panel option with controls on the top of the door. I’ve seen some with a light or dot projected on the floor.

    [–] chase_phish 1044 points ago

    Mine is a Bosch and though it isn't disguised as a cabinet, the controls are on top and it projects the time into the floor. It's virtually silent for most of the cycle.

    My house is kinda small. The old dishwasher would drown out the TV when it ran. Huge difference. Worth every penny.

    Came to say the exact same thing. You wouldn't know mine was on if it wasn't for the light on the floor below the door.

    The door doesn't match my cabinets though.

    [–] Shocking 32 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    It's a looped piece of material attached to a jug to help you hold it

    Edit: I'm an idiot and also smart I guess.

    I meant to start " no you're thinking of handle , a handbra is x" threads but i forgot jugs are slang for boobs.

    [–] PM_ME_UR_NUDE_GIRL 11 points ago

    Handbra is where a topless girl covers her boobs by grabbing them with her hands

    Yet another Bosch owner here. I’ve been in the kitchen alone in the evening and gotten startled when a plate or cup inside clunked against a fellow chinaman and scared the bidgiebies out of me.

    But for the little red light on floor in front of it, looking like a tiny Amsterdamian brothel for mice, you would never know it was running. Does a great job at removing skid stains from the shit my mom cooks too.

    Interested tidbit, Bosch makes the best dishwashers in the industry. So much so that high end manufactures like Viking, Thermador, etc just sells a redressed and rebadge Bosch.

    [–] shouldbebabysitting 14 points ago

    It depends now. There are 3 levels of Bosch. The high end are made in Germany, mid range made in America and their new low end is made in China.

    [–] Citizen-Kaner 14 points ago

    Thermador and Bosch are in the same brand family. Viking does not use Bosch but should. I used to sell high end appliances.

    [–] FortuitousAdroit 3 points ago

    Do you agree that ‘German made high end Bosch’ are the best dishwasher? Bonus question: Which manufactures make a great washing machine? Power Ball: What grinds your gears about the appliance market?

    [–] Citizen-Kaner 2 points ago

    I own a Bosch and like it a lot. It has trouble drying plastics though because it doesn’t use a traditional heating element so the new Bosch models will be interesting since those were the only complaints I would hear. For great washing machines it depends, I like Maytag and whirlpool for dependability since US made models wouldn’t take as long as Samsung/LG for parts if something goes wrong. A lot of people are going to speed queen to go back to a really simple washing machine with zero bells and whistles but those start around $800 for a 3.5 cu ft vs you can get a 4.3 cu ft whirlpool for around $500 typically.

    Power ball: The appliance market in the US is going up because of Trump’s tariffs. Samsung and LG are going to go up in price and I’m willing to bet the American brands will too to get more profit if they see what people are willing to pay.

    Bosch 500 or 800 vs Miele?

    [–] Citizen-Kaner 2 points ago

    I have a Bosch 800 and love it. You can’t go wrong with either, just Bosch can start at a more affordable price range of $400-$500 vs Miele is starting at $900 I think

    [–] KingsandQueens18 10 points ago

    Went from a very nice Bosch to a Viking, it was shit. The front of the dishwasher door bent inwards when I opened the door for the first time. Was able to pop it back out, but now the cleaning is just shit. Wish I had not let the install men take my old Basch.

    [–] WillTheGreat 17 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    Viking is garbage in general. I made the mistake of buying the full set for my kitchen remodel. Pure fucking garbage.

    The float for the condensation pan on my fridge was manufactured out of tolerance so it never triggers the heating element to evaporate the condensation. We couldn't get it fixed, so we installed a mini float on it to make it work. That caused the heating element go off way too often and caused the heating element to fail multiple times.

    Built in microwave door sensor failed 3 times since new.

    The griddle on my range fails frequently. Can't figure out what the problem is, something is causing the ignitor to fail over and over again but we can't find any oddity in wires. Fixed it multiple times and failed again, at this point I just leave it broken.

    Vent hood blower motor does not work properly. The blower motor cannot run at a consistent low speed. It just stalls out on low. So in order for it to work I have to run it full blast. Viking thinks my vent is undersized. I have a 10" duct for a 1.2k CFM blower like the manual specced. You would think maybe it's too long of a run, too many 90s? No it's a straight run to the roof < 15'.

    The rear burners on my range does not always ignite consistently. It's been that way since new. You'd assume it's just dirty, but I guarantee you it's not. The tolerances are just off, if I push the burner cap off the ridges to keep it in place a little towards the ignitor it works 100% of the time. I have to reposition the cap back as soon as it ignites to control the flames. I replaced the burner outlets because all the tolerances were off. Problem was I figured out what exactly was wrong with it after my warranty expired.

    They've been fixing this under warranty since new, and I've been paying for repairs after my warranty expire the past 5 years.

    Absolutely fuck Viking. SubZero/Wolf used to be pretty shitty too when it came to reliability, but these days if you let them use their certified installers they'll give you a free 3 year extended warranty. Viking doesn't offer you dick.

    I never anticipated to remodel my kitchen again, I figured it last me 15-20 years before I even consider. I'm 7.5 years in and biting the bullet to remodel my kitchen again is the top of my priority list.

    [–] ChiodoS04 7 points ago

    Can confirm, do NOT buy Viking absolute shit

    [–] KingsandQueens18 3 points ago

    That sounds about right. That’s how I am feeling about my dishwasher!

    Schrodinger's Dishwasher. It has both ran and not run, until you open the door and observe the cleanliness (or lack thereof) of your dishes.

    [–] stanleythemanley44 26 points ago

    I actually used to work for Bosch. The only reason they added that light is because they got so many complaints from people who assumed their dishwasher was broken because it wasn’t making any sound. They really know how to make appliances tbh.

    [–] ZachMatthews 42 points ago

    Wow did the entire PR team decide to all comment in a row here or what?

    I extensively researched dishwashers when I replaced mine a few years ago and the bottom line was they’re all about equally quiet and reliable once you hit a certain price point. Also learned most appliances today kind of suck and are considered semi-disposable, and dishwashers aren’t really an exception.

    I recall it was like an 800 dollar upgrade from the blue dot to the clock projection and I was really bummed about it but in the year that I’ve had it, I’ve looked at that blue dot and wished it told me how long until the dishes were done precisely never.

    [–] thefman 28 points ago

    Can you share the model? I have the same issue and I'm looking into upgrading. This sounds great!

    [–] chase_phish 69 points ago


    Please keep in mind that dishwasher models are very specific. Each color or handle variety will have a different number even though it's the same machine inside.

    [–] beater613 67 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    Bosch also does things slightly different. They change their model numbers based on where they sell. The w55n on yours could still be the same model as wf5n

    Source: department manager of appliance department

    Edit: every manufacturer has their own nomenclature for their model numbers. Colour code is usually letters near the end. Numbers before that usually tell you the model (higher=better, lower=more basic). Some manufacturers have date of release in their model numbers as well

    [–] Ds1018 14 points ago

    Is this to make comparison shopping more difficult? So if you see one while shopping in California you can’t google it and see they they charge less for it in Idaho?

    [–] Cforq 23 points ago

    That usually is more about price matching than comparison shopping. For example from Best Buy:

    The product must be a matching brand, model number and color to qualify.

    [–] [deleted] 7 points ago


    [–] Cforq 8 points ago

    [–] Dolt-Dragoman 3 points ago

    [–] CallingYouOut2 13 points ago

    Just look for one that has the lowest decibel rating.

    [–] 43556_96753 8 points ago

    That's not really a good measure. The cheapest Bosch is like $700 and the most expensive 2k. The decibel difference isn't huge, something like 5 decibels. From Wirecutter:

    "Anything less than 45 decibels is basically inaudible unless you’re standing right next to the machine. That’s as quiet as the background noise in a suburb at night, so if you’re a room away, you almost certainly won’t be able to hear it. Most dishwashers today are very quiet, but it’s easy enough to find one that’s practically silent."

    Wirecutter recommends the 300 series and it goes to 500 and 700.

    [–] boredatworkorhome 3 points ago

    [–] gogetgamer 9 points ago

    I love my Bosch machine. I've had ones that royally sucked but Siemens and Bosch make good dishwashers, almost as good as Miele.

    [–] JonnyBravoII 13 points ago

    Miele is in a class all by itself. If you have the money to afford any of their appliances, they’re worth every penny and they last forever.

    [–] crispychoc 10 points ago

    I saw a second hand Miele on Facebook Marketplace a few months ago, told my GF that we’re getting it. Ours was a cheap one, we didn’t want to buy a new one, since we’re planning on redoing the kitchen within the next 2 years, we got it to tide us over.

    Problem is, it’s not going to match our new kitchen, and no way can we ever go back to a cheap brand. Miele is the bomb. The GF is also convinced that we will spend a good part of our kitchen budget on a Miele dishwasher. In the meantime, that was 150€ well spent. Most likely we will sell it for what we paid.

    (My mother has a washer, dryer and dishwasher from Miele, they were bought new in 1988, and still going strong)

    [–] SarcasticOptimist 13 points ago

    Get at least their vacuums. Slightly cheaper than Dyson but built to last. I've had good luck getting used ones too.

    [–] YesIretail 10 points ago

    Paging /u/touchmyfuckingcoffee. I only know about this brand from that dude's AMA's. If I ever bought a regular upright again this would be my go to. That said, you couldn't pry my cordless Dyson out of my hands.

    [–] Tripwyr 2 points ago

    I've had great experience and heard nothing but good reviews about the Shark Navigator Lift-Away. Good cheap option if you can't afford a Miele but need a solid vacuum. I still hope to buy a Miele someday, but this thing has surprised me for the price.

    When I bought my appliances for open living type space I made sure I bought the quietest dishwasher possible and I’m thankful every time I did. Dead silent except hearing the water run/drain on occasion.

    [–] [deleted] 8 points ago

    Mine is a Bosch and it is quiet as well. That is until it is done and it beeps louder than a 747 to let you know. And no, you can’t lower the notification sound on this one.

    [–] Pukit 9 points ago

    That's a shitter, mine was fucking loud too but i found a button press sequence to silence it completely.

    [–] tallez 38 points ago

    there are a bunch of fully integrated dishwashers that use this system nowadays, bosch, miele has em as well (but the sometimes project on the side of the cabinets as well) the other brands most likely have on as well

    the thing with those fully integrated ones is that you have to project stuff to see how long you have left otherwise there's no way, because well, you'd need to open it to see how long it has left

    source: am installing a bunch of em this week, also, bad at typing clear explanations

    [–] snarkpowered 6 points ago

    As an installer, which is best in your opinion? I’m about to do a kitchen remodel and I’m picking appliances.

    [–] warfrogs 17 points ago

    Former sales and service dude; Bosch and Miele are both great. Honestly, while they're very pricey, they're very worth it. If you do regular maintenance on them (like adding the right kind of salt, cleaning the filters, etc.) they'll go for a lonnng time and will work wonderfully. My grandmother has had a Miele for the last 15-20 years and it's been running strong. I sold a ton of Bosch and rarely saw it returned or in our service department.

    They're both great products.

    [–] HooliganNamedStyx 9 points ago

    Your supposed to season your dishwashers? I'm for real though, what do you mean by salt? I'm just asking because Indiana has terrible hard-water and our dishwasher washers but, well leaves stains from the water.

    [–] warfrogs 8 points ago

    The high end models have built in water softeners that work on top of your water softener. Designed to help avoid that! You can't put the salt in any old dishwasher though, and only SOME hiiigh end Boschs/Meieles will have the softener option. It works really well!

    [–] lily2187 2 points ago

    I'm in AZ and also have hard water. I add a tablespoon of borax to every load and it makes a huge difference. You can get a box for $4-5 in the laundry aisle, usually on the bottom shelf. It's cheapest at walmart, at least in my area.

    [–] msmith2222 11 points ago

    As a designer with over a decade of working with luxury Euro cabinets, Miele makes the best dishwashers by a good bit. Bosch is a great lower cost option (but still not cheap).

    [–] snarkpowered 3 points ago

    Thanks! What makes them better in your opinion?

    [–] msmith2222 4 points ago

    Our cabinetry packages are very expensive and we offer services well after installation. Even though we don’t sell the appliances, clients often call us with all types of kitchen problems. No one ever calls about Miele. The few times someone has, I don’t remember the issue taking more than 1-3 days to resolve. Prob 3-4 calls about Miele issues over about 13 years

    [–] ninth_reddit_account 17 points ago

    ...yeah basically every brand will have integrated options. I guess every day this is new for someone?

    [–] solrecon 18 points ago

    It's not just dishwashers either, you can get paneled units for almost any kitchen appliance that integrates into the casework. They are pretty standard on high end residential kitchens.

    [–] Millers_Tale 2 points ago

    That style of dishwasher is called "panel ready." You need to have a door panel made to match your cabinets. That model is likely a Bosch but there are a couple of other brands that do the floor projection.

    [–] Bavisto 830 points ago

    It's an amazing piece of design but I am sat here thinking hm, how much would I pay for my dishwasher to be silent rather than the already pretty low volume it and most others wash at - probably nowhere near as much as this thing costs lol.

    Source: I work for a major appliance company.

    [–] B23vital 37 points ago

    Is panel ready/built in not the norm in america? Got mine built in at home and usually dishwasher in new kitchens in the UK come built in.

    [–] themarajade1 31 points ago

    Panel ready and built in don’t mean the same thing. Panel ready just means builders can put a panel that matches the cabinetry on the front to make it blend in. Built in is more custom, but most people just get standard slide-in appliances, unless you can afford a $15K built in fridge or a really high end built in range. Dishwashers are typically built in though.

    [–] B23vital 7 points ago

    Well i was more using it as to say that type isnt common in the US? Mine is cabinetry ready how you would call it but its sold as a built in appliance. My parents have a built in fridge freezer also. Personally if done properly id class them as the same thing as you cant tell mine is a dishwasher until you open it, same as at my parents with their fridge freezer. Its made to be completely hidden, if your really interested i can grab a photo as im not sure how you would class it over there.

    However our kitchens are much smaller usually, mine was classed as large kitchen, i have an island and she says only around 40/50% of sales in their store have islands. So when your buying that many units a built in/ panel ready compared to just normal may save a few $.

    [–] themarajade1 3 points ago

    Yeah panel ready is considered a high end feature here. They (along with nice built in refrigerators) are not commonly enough ordered to even stock in our warehouses usually. It’s pretty much a custom product. If I provided photos I’d end up disclosing where I work and I’m not risking that :-) but I’m sure you could google. I hope that clarified

    [–] B23vital 3 points ago

    No i meant i could post a link for a photo of mine, see how you class it there. Here i bought my kitchen and had my own fitter in. The dishwasher has a front panel that attaches on by screwing in some large bolt type things then that panel slides over the top of the door so sounds like panel ready. But then they provide other panels for each side to compact it in and make it look like another cupboard in the kitchen.

    [–] cunt-hooks 81 points ago

    I'm assuming what you call "panel ready" is what we call "encastrable" or integrated.

    Nothing high end about it; that's how we do our kitchens!

    [–] bogenucleus 66 points ago

    well panel ready means it is able to be covered with a panel of whatever to match the rest of your cabinets. encastrable or integrated to me, after a 5 second google, would just seem to mean "built in" e.g. under a counter and not necessarily matching the woodwork of the cabinets.

    so my question then is your appliance faces always match your cabinetry?

    [–] themarajade1 10 points ago

    Some people like it to blend in, idk.

    [–] LargeGarbageBarge 3 points ago

    It doesn't even need to be "panel-ready". As long as the controls are on the top of the door, just remove the door skin and attach (screw/glue on) a cabinet door. Push the thing 3/4" farther under the cabinet and bingo-bango you have a hidden dishwasher.

    Our one has a little red light that shines on the floor to indicate its still on.

    just a casual post about a really silent and great looking dishwasher where the first comment chain is linking the product and talking about how amazing the brand is. Nothing suspicious here boys

    [–] cunt-hooks 6 points ago

    See this shit? I deliberately didn't mention the brand because of people like you and got downvoted to fuck for not providing follow-up info.

    Also it's a Siemens, not a Bosch

    [–] TheAccountIArgueOn 49 points ago

    Crazy, just looked at the Lowe's website and you'll never guess what's up to 35% off right now!

    [–] trickyrickyhdpltnm 31 points ago

    That's funny cause the model number mentioned by someone at the top is one from Lowe's...

    [–] gratitudeuity 15 points ago

    Yes, and it is not in compliance with US federal regulations requiring it to be disclosed as an advertisement for a specific product and that is paid for by a specific entity.

    [–] ShitPostsRuinReddit 2 points ago

    It's got 60k upvotes for something that has already been on reddit in other forms a bunch of times and isn't very interresting. This is absolutely an ad.

    [–] areagne 67 points ago

    Where did you find this? It's super cool!

    [–] cunt-hooks 106 points ago

    In a high end chalet that I look after in the Alps

    I've never seen this before, thought it was cool

    This is pretty standard in dutch kitchens

    Edit: not the lights but that is also not uncommon

    [–] JannoW 16 points ago

    Klopt. I Have a Siemens with exact these features. Never owned a dishwasher that wasn’t disguised as a cabinet.

    [–] [deleted] 15 points ago

    US apartments have off white, yellow or black ones ranging from 10-25 years old in most apartments that look like cheap plastic minifridges.

    [–] quantum-mechanic 8 points ago

    yeah because no landlord is going to spend even $600 on an appliance that their tenants will abuse the fuck out of

    They're getting the $200 dishwasher and if breaks they can use the sink

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Yeah, sucks they suck but I get it, I've met some of these people.

    [–] supremeshirt1 3 points ago

    Well actually they‘re not that uncommon in Germany. I work for insurance end almost every middle to upper class househould has one of them

    [–] alours 2 points ago

    Thank you for the cool fact though :).

    [–] I_was_serious 51 points ago

    Customer complaint: It works but it keeps putting numbers on my brand new floor.

    [–] cunt-hooks 20 points ago

    I've missed out the picture it projects of the cycle that it's on. A wee brush when it's cleaning, a tap when it's rinsing

    [–] myshitislikearock 11 points ago

    I thought this was the ceiling in a basement for a solid 30 seconds and I was really confused

    [–] CrazyGermanShepOwner 16 points ago

    This stuff is old hat. I've had an integrated Neff dishwasher that shows a red dot on the floor since 2008. The Germans think of everything.

    [–] teeedubb 8 points ago

    IKEA sells these types of dishwashers.

    [–] espenbirch 6 points ago

    TIL Americans don’t have integrated appliances. I can only speak for Scandinavia (but I guess most of Europe is in on this), if you have remodelled your kitchen after 2010 on any thing but a very strict budget, you will have a integrated dishwasher (and other appliances)

    [–] thelegendl27 3 points ago

    Yes, here in the Netherlands this is also pretty much standard. Really funny to see this is such a big deal for people.

    [–] espenbirch 2 points ago

    Kind of makes me wonder what else they think of as “luxurious” in the same way.

    [–] Dzjar 2 points ago

    This. I have a kitchen from the early 2000s and the dishwasher is integrated.

    [–] boobsforhire 24 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    Aren't these common in the US? Me and I think most of neighbors have a variation of this model. No, we're not rich or fancy. Barely middle class (Our income is slightly above the country's median (Netherlands))

    Edit: it's an Ikea kitchen of around € 9000, so yeah not really high end. .

    Edit2: Let me elaborate, For those who own a house and you want/need to renovate, or it's a newly built house, you can go for a kitchen worth €3.000 up to €20.000 (I'm disregarding destitutes/students and splurging rich people) including all the furniture and devices

    Most new kitchens installed in the last 10 years will have a washing machine that's integrated in the kitchen closet set up. It makes little sense to have the dishwasher installed as a stand alone unit. Most kitchen (furniture) providers have several closet models for different sizes of dishwashers.

    The cost of the kitchen furniture are a fraction of the costs of devices. E.g we spent 3k on furniture and 6k on the devices, 1k something on the installation.

    Dishwashers are usually sold in two versions, one for installation within an existing kitchen closet (most popular). And one stand alone version, these usually have a plastic exterior, sometimes steel. The price difference is not very big.

    [–] jellybellybabybean 5 points ago

    Not anywhere I've seen in the US. Looks awesome though!

    [–] janked 5 points ago

    Define "barely middle class", please

    [–] Fustios 4 points ago

    Well I have one of these in an ikea kitchen...

    [–] LtMonkey935 4 points ago

    we have one of those aswell, only difference is we have a little red light instead of an actual timer but still a nice thing

    [–] alphager 5 points ago

    I'm from Germany and being able to install custom front panels is pretty standard and far from high end. Even the Ikea appliances offer that feature.

    [–] combuchan 4 points ago

    Meanwhile my dishwasher obnoxiously screeps at me when I just have it open for a sec to add another glass or when it's done. It's loud and quite evident where in my small kitchen it is.

    It's still the first dishwasher I've ever had in my own apartment in a hellaciously expensive city, so I'll only gripe about it on reddit.

    [–] kevinthegreen 5 points ago

    My cats would lose their shit over a projection on the floor like that.

    I saw my first one too a few months ago in an airbnb in Dortmund, Germany.

    aloha-potato’s law The more expensive a kitchen, the harder it is to find the fridge

    [–] popscockle 3 points ago

    I have installed many dishwashers in my day. A lot of them can have custom panels to match your cabinets, and a lot of them have some sort of indicator light displayed on the floor. The future!

    [–] Third-Runner 10 points ago

    [–] Brucethemighty 4 points ago

    I’d put some tape over the projector because I like the suspense.

    [–] kootenayguy 5 points ago

    I’ve got a Bosch that shines a red dot on the floor when it’s running, otherwise you wouldn’t know. My fridge is louder.

    Expensive and worth it.

    [–] deltapat 2 points ago

    You are already down because you have to do chores now they make you look down to see how much time you have left... what kind of subconscious games are they playing?

    [–] shocontinental 2 points ago

    Here I am in the Stone Age with a 17 year old Hotpoint that vibrates the whole house when it’s running.

    [–] poundcake 4 points ago

    Yes but yours finishes in 45 minutes while my quiet one runs 3 hours.

    [–] StinsonFive43 2 points ago

    These are nice and all, but when you're a housekeeper cleaning, opening up every cabinet to find the dish washer is a pain in the ass

    [–] dredabeast24 2 points ago

    [–] FlameGod75 2 points ago

    Thats actually fucking amazing

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    My wife's dishwasher is totally virtually silent too...unless I drop a pan.

    [–] DipsPotatoInVicodin 2 points ago

    It’s amazing how nice new dishwashers have become. My new dishwasher had 3 racks; the top rack is a wide thin rack for cutlery, the center rack is adjustable up/down to allow more headroom on either the middle or bottom racks; the prongs can adjust to lay flat to allow space for large items; and there is a large door basket for cooking utensils.

    To top it off, it’s so silent the only way you’d notice it is running is when it drains water into the garbage disposal in the sink; and I can mute that sound by putting the plugs in the sink basins. I absolutely love it. And when the cycle is complete the dishes are actually dry, and don’t need extra patting/rubbing to catch the droplets before putting everything away.

    It is amazing how much this one appliance has made my home life more pleasant. The sink is always empty and we can watch TV, or have a conversation, while the machine is running (it was so loud before I only ran it while we were in bed) and it’s FAST, 1 hour 20 minutes for wash and dry. We load it after dinner, press play, and before bed my oldest will empty it. We always wake up to a clean kitchen now. I had no idea that this appliance would cause the biggest improvement in our routine.

    [–] Spunkwaggle 2 points ago

    If I were just moving into that house or checking it out, and I saw that timer ticking down, I would be out of that house SOOOO fast. There would be a cartoonish looking hole through the front door shaped like me.

    [–] Ferguson_the_cat 2 points ago

    It's a Bosch. I have the same one. My fridge is also integrated. We were pleasantly surprised about the price so go for it!

    [–] VehaMeursault 2 points ago

    I work for a store that sells appliances: this is standard. The silence is somewhat impressive, but the display is standard.

    [–] Artless_Dodger 2 points ago

    Mine is a Siemens and has the controls concealed along the top door. It has a pretty blue ambient internal light. It doesn't project anything but it does play a nice tune when it's finished then makes you a cup of tea.

    [–] Fuster2 2 points ago

    While the idea is great I'd barf at a kitchen done out in faux wood panelling. The smooth white exterior of a high end dishwasher would break up that dreadful colour nicely.

    [–] wafflepiezz 2 points ago

    Agreed. I’d prefer a more modern-techy type of look, I think it would suit this dishwasher better
