With a 42-decibel sound level, the Bosch 800 Plus Series SHX7PT55UC dishwasher is one of the quietest dishwashers we reviewed. In fact, Bosch added a floor beam that projects the status of the cycle and the remaining time onto the floor because the unit is so quiet you may not be able to tell it’s running. Along with its quiet operation, this integrated dishwasher is very energy efficient and includes a nice set of wash cycles and wash options.
Although the dishwasher features a wide selection of wash cycles and options, it lacks a child-lock or control-lock function. This is a standard feature on most dishwashers. Despite the absence of such a standard function, the dishwasher still has impressive functionality and efficiency all around.
You get six wash cycles and five wash options on this Bosch 800 Plus Series unit. The wash cycles are heavy auto, delicate, glass, normal, express and rinse. Additionally, you can put up to 15 place settings into one load on its three racks. The third rack can hold small and flat items such as spatulas and measuring cups. The other two racks feature Bosch’s RackMatic functionality, which allows you to adjust them to three height levels – a total of nine different positions.

It's among the most energy-efficient dishwashers in our comparison.
