Bosch

First, Bosch is the most popular dishwasher sold at Yale. They also operate the largest dishwasher manufacturing facility in the world, located in North Carolina. 

Bosch was late to the US, arriving in the mid-1990's. However, the dishwashers became wildly popular due to their stainless tubs, relative affordability, and especially their quietness. In terms of reliability, they are the second most reliable just slightly behind Miele.

Differences 

The difference between all the Bosch is quietness from 49-37 DBs (read The Quietest Dishwasher by Decibel Rating for an explanation), racks and cycles. Every Bosch dishwasher can heat the water to 161 degrees and uses no-heat condensation drying.
