Very happy

published

Very easy to use, efficient, cleans very well first time & quiet. Instruction booklet exactly as required. Bottom rack has 2 fold down arms for clear space with larger items, central rack has similar 2 fold down arms plus small item folding protective cover arms along with whole rack being easily height adjustable & top rack is for ample cutlery. Also known as Bosch ActiveWater Slim 54. Only issue is having to be careful around faceplate name decals as they will remove with cleaning.

Purchased in June 2018 at Appliances Online for $1,300.00.

What does it take to get somebody at Bosch to address this virtually brand new abomination of a machine?

Fantastic dishwasher

published

We purchased the Bosch SMP66MX02A after our Dishlex dishwasher ceased working after nearly 18 years of service. We ordered through ‘The Good Guys’ and had a nearly 6 week wait for delivery due to Covid19. ‘The Good Guys‘ gave us a $100 gift voucher for our troubles and it was worth the wait!
This dishwasher is fantastic. We love the cutlery draw, the adjustable 2nd rack allowing large items to be washed. We had an initial problem with dishes not being dry, but that was largely fixed by the use of rinse aid. It has a good layout and holds many dishes. We use the 60 minute wash for everything and all dishes come out clean and sparkling. Couldn’t be happier with this dishwasher. Thankyou Bosch!

Great when it works, but appalling service when it goes wrong

published

A great dishwasher when it works, but very disappointed to have it break down inside 2 years. Unfortunately, getting service to repair under warranty on NSW South Coast is tiresome. It took 2 weeks to get it repaired at the first attempt - repairer did not have required part. Waited a further 2 weeks for an ordered part and service booking, but now informed the part is 'damaged'. Will now have to wait a further period of at least 2 weeks to get the dishwasher repaired. Bosch need more local service agents who don't need to be booked 2 weeks ahead!

Excellent under bench dishwasher

published

This is a high quality Bosch product. The dishwasher is quiet, it is efficient in removing both light and heavily grimed build up on items, it also cleans glasses without streaking or leaving them anything other than transparent. Easy to pack and you can fit plenty of dishes/cutlery etc in. Highly recommend.

Works great!

After 2 years running without no issue, like the easy way to programm and the many options to wash, also the items can be arranged in different waysto be washed. Very quiet machine compared to others we had. Love how it looks installed as part of the kitchen making a higher end product.

Love this! Works great!

published

Love this dishwasher. Bought from Bing Lee for the version with the cutlery draw. Amazing sparkling clean glasses and cutlery. Fits so much in it due to plate holders you can lay down and adjustable draw height. I also put a large frying pan and wooden cutting board in. Haven’t needed to use the large item spray fitting with the draw removed.Very quiet on auto. 60 min a little noisier as it is spraying harder.

Purchased in April 2019 at Bing Lee for $1,160.00.

Great dishwasher!

published

Awesome dishwasher! Very easy to use controls and the unit looks great with no visible buttons on the front of it. We have ours under a bench so it looks built in. Our dishwasher is still very new but we haven't had any issues with it so far. Most of the time you can't even tell it's on it is so quiet. The best features are the pull out cutlery tray and that you can adjust the height of the top rack so you can fit bigger dishes in. Highly recommend this model!

Great dishwasher

Bosch has to be one of my fav dish washers. Very quiet and cleans the dishes perfectly. Lots of features depends on how fast and how deep clean you want to set it. 3 levels with lots of space for all the dishes and cutleries

So far so good

published

Bought this unit to replace another Bosch dishwasher that was 10 years old.
This unit has a similar interior layout as our last one and it seems much quieter.
There is a few extra washing programmes and a self cleaning programme which the old one didn't have. This one is made in Germany and has the stainless steel base inside, the ones made in turkey have a plastic base. Time will tell if it's as good as our last Bosch.

Serie 6 SMP66MX03A

Is it possible to have the time remaining display when the machine is running, and not just when the door is open?

Annoying to have to open the door and interrupt the wash cycle to see when it’s going to finish.

This model doesn’t have TimeLight, only that red dot to show it’s on...

Serie 6 SMP66MX01A (Stainless Steel)

I am very happy with the dishwasher except that it did not come with a kickplate. The item was a display unit at David Jones, and I thought it was complete. Is this something I need to purchase separately?

Serie 6 SMP66MX02A

Looking at SMU66MS02A and SMP66MX01A.
Although Bosch Spec Sheets state both have same Wash Programs and Options some supplier websites state SMP66MX01A has a Rinse Mode which the other doesn't. Is that correct?
Also, is either or both delivered with a Kick Panel? And if so what is height of the standard Kick Panel?

Hi David. I’m not to sure about the cycles on the dishwashers as neither of these are the one I own.
I know that they come with the kick panel when they are built in which both these units are.
The unit washes and dries amazingly but their rack system could do with tweaking as far as cup rack levels are to narrow
And unless you have really flat plates you can only use every second plate space on the lower rack at the back. Hasn’t really been that much of an issue for us,
