We recently bought this dishwasher and have been extremely disappointed. We bought a basic Bosch dishwasher 13 years ago and were extremely happy with it's performance, so decided to buy this later version higher spec unit. This dishwasher does not clean the dishes as well as the old one did. Also doesn't dry as well, even though we have been using the 'extra dry' function. Also the baskets are not designed as practical as the old model.

Good - but instructions are difficult to decipher
I bought this for the name mainly. It has a good reputation. It washes everything well. No complaints. But the instruction manual is difficult to read and basic functions are not even covered in the manual. The manual needs to be totally re-written. I also played around with the buttons on the machine and its very difficult for a first time "Bosch" user. I had to google some tutorials and call Bosch directly to get instructions on how to use it.
Update: After a month or so still quite happy with it. Only very slight issue with the draining no...ise. Alot of effort has been used to quieten the machine which is excellent. However when it drains the water there is a very raucous sound which is not the most polite sounding noise especially if you have guests in the same room. I think this should be the next thing to look at for Bosch to quieten the draining if they can.

I have not had this dishwasher long but, so far, so good. Love the cutlery drawer and the long stem glass holder. The control panel is clear and easy to understand. Have tried the “perfect speed” button to halve the wash time of “auto” cycle and i still get a perfect wash. I’m never in a hurry to complete a wash so I will probably use “eco” only for the most economical wash at about 2 1/2 hours. It woulda great and dries everything nicely. The installation was a bit bothersome for us but with the help of a family member, we did manage the process without professional help.

Know better, choose better.
the dishwasher that I got with a brand new build house in SA was bosch. Didn't use it yet and has a computer module failure that needs to be replaced. If the product is unused then it should be a replacement but called bosch and they said that they warranty rule to fix first and thats ridiculous if the dishwasher is unused. My mum was really upset since we have to wash dishes by hand for 8 weeks after handover for the brand new house. The house was bought by oakford homes and paid extra to get the bosch dishwasher since eveyone says its good bu...t if we have stocked to the standard blanco dishwasher this wouldn't have happened. If anyone thinks this dishwasher is good look at the warranty policy before buying. So you don't go through the same as me. Most decent cheap new dishwashers like blanco or anything is better then this dishwasher. My family and I threw this dishwahser outside and bought blanco dishwasher and its amazing. Even tho we paid extra from our own pocket for the crap bosch dishwasher. And paid more to get a descent dishwasher to make my mum happy not washing dishes by hand. Don't go through oakford homes in SA due to making everything really cheap around your house and make mistakes everywhere and providing a faulty dishwahser.

- Serie 4 SMU46GS01A
Bosch Dishwasher Series 4 built-under dishwasher 60 cm Stainless steel SMU46GS01A/12
I bought and received this dishwasher 1 week ago to replace a wonderful 20 year old Simpson unit that had come to the end of its life, I have since sent 3 complaints to Bosch regarding the misleading and incorrect documentation (see attached) , also deficient items that have been provided with the delivery, no reply to date ( 1 week after ) . It appears that installation of this unit requires items not provided with the consignement and some items supplied are not relevant to this model.

The perfect integrated dishwasher
The Bosch SMV46GX01A Dishwasher is an entry level integrated dishwasher that outperforms top end models. So quiet you dont even realise that it’s on and it’s ridiculously easy to use.

No problems, seems reliable
Have had for less than a year, but so far so good. I particularly like the Bosch styling.
Sometimes it's a bit hard to know what stage of the wash cycle it is up to, maybe a bigger screen model solves this? I also prefer switches and dials to buttons, but personal preference I suppose!

Questions & Answers
Had dishwasher installed yesterday and can’t change the setting so will only wash on the eco setting. How can I fix this?
I think I only use the one setting only as instructions are not very useful. Could try youtube or I called Bosch directly they showed me just how to use the one setting.
We'd like to help, if you contact us on 1300 369 744. Be sure to provide your model number & we’ll investigate for you. Regards, Bosch Home Australia.
Hi, I bought a SMU46GS01A and according to the manual it can be connected to a hot water pipe. However when I tried to go to the settings to change settings, I encountered some difficulties. The instructions doesn't work. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you. Pam
