Bosch Serie 6 Freestanding Dishwashers

This morning we took delivery of the Series 6 dishwasher SMP66MX01A.
Why is the 'Quick 29min' cycle taking 44mins and why is the 'Quick 60min' cycle taking 1:15 please?
The rinse aid drawer is full/overflowing with Finish Rinse Aid.

Does SMS66MI02A have the ability to sanitise the dishes? My old Bosch dishwasher has a ‘hygiene’ button but this one doesn’t seem to.

I have a SMS66MI03A and HygienePlus is listed as an additional function on some Bosch dishwashers but it isn’t an option on this one.

Bosch Serie 6 Freestanding Dishwashers

I had a look at a Bosch Series 6 in the store today. When I was sliding the bottom rack in and out, it seemed like there were no 'grooves' to keep the bottom rack in and it seemed to easily just slide straight off the front of the dishwasher with nothing to stop it. I looked at this dishwasher twice as I walked around the shop and both times it seems like the bottom rack would easily unmount itself.

Can anyone confirm what the bottom rack sliding is like?

We've not had an issue with the bottom rack sliding out. Each rack feels like it's secure in place. I think with dishes, it weighs it down more.

Our brand new machine on auto wash cycle takes 2 hours 55 but the manual says it should be a max of 2 hr 40. Rinse aid has been added. Is something wrong?

I don’t know. The manual says 2.40- when selected, mine says 2.45. I generally also select “speed perfect”, and the cycle time drops to 1.30.

Hi Russ,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch Dishwasher.
It is normal for the dishwasher to amend times during a cycle however if you feel that the Dishwasher is taking longer then normal feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744 to discuss further.
Regards, Bosch Home Australia

Russ

It's not amending, just stating longer than the manual says is max for that cycle, from initialisation. The eco wash is shorter than auto wash!

When I switch my dishwasher on it is flashing 1hr 30min. It will work on that cycle, but I cannot get any other buttons to work, so I cannot change cycles or do anything. I have held the start button for 10 sec, switched off & unplugged the machine but still cannot change anything. Can you help me please?

Hi there, we were wondering if the top was able to be removed on the model SMS66MW01A. If so, does this reduce the depth of the dishwasher? By how much? Thanks

Hi. Yes the top panel can be removed to help it go under a bench. That is what I had to do to make mine fit.
If you read my review on the machine from two weeks ago, you can see the photo and my dishwasher has the top removed.
Unsure in exact reduction of height

Grandma M

Hi Lucy- we found it fit without removing the top- our plumber did it and we decided to leave it. The legs seem to be screwed down to shorten. This wouldn’t work it you wanted to put in a bit of kick board, though, because it is too low. We only bought this model because the under each was t available and we needed one now. We are happy with the decision.
I’d add a photo if this allowed it.

Serie 6 SMS66MI03A (Stainless Steel)

Last night I set an eco wash to take place with a delayed start for 12 hours. About 6 hours before the program was due to start, the front panel went blank. No matter what I did, the panel didn’t light up and show me any lights or remaining time.
Tried holding start for 3sec, unplugging machine. Nothing worked.
However when the time passed, the cycle started.
Hasn’t happened again since, but concerned.
Has this happened to anyone else. Not sure if I should return as faulty as only got it in December.

Can I install an Free Standing Model No SMS66M102A as an Under Bench installation

4 answers

We installed it as underbench installation. We had to remove the top casing (which is easy as it has quick release tabs and detailed in booklet).
We then raised the stands underneath the washer to make it sit nicely under our bench

Bosch Serie 6 Freestanding Dishwashers

Can Bosch dishwasher models SMS66MI02A and SMS66MI03A be connected to standard 'hot water' supply? (I only hot water supply outlet in the kitchen cabinet, to which the our (now faulty) dishwasher is connected.)
I rang Bosch to get an answer to my question. Their reply was it that it depended on whether or not these models have a setting for hot water intake, which I have to find myself (!!!). They could no answer this as the person answering the question "did not have the machine in front of him, so he couldn't check" (to quote his words).
So if Bosch service people do not know the answer in regard to a question on their own product, how can we be sure before we buy their product?
Can anyone working in Bosch, or anyone else reading this answer my opening question please.

best look it up on BOSCH website and then compare them, that way you can compare the differences - it may just be location where the dishwasher was made - the 103A is made in germany
