- Serie 8 SMV88TX02A
Love this dishwasher - big, efficient and remarkably quiet regardless of the setting.
Very happy with our purchase and would highly recommend.
Love the cutlery dish.
The only thing I don't like (and our friends who also bought a Bosch don't like) is the the bottom rack when pulled out near fully, easily slips off the run - their is no track to keep it place - so strange that they wouldn't have something to stop this on an otherwise fantastic product. Can be hooked direct to hot water as well which can save energy provided the hot water doesn't have to travel too far.
Purchased in July 2020 for $1,423.00.

Quality built with plenty of features
Purchased the fully integrated Bosch SMV88TX02A Series 8 dishwasher to replace our faulty IAG IDW14B dishwasher from Winnings. Installation instructions for built-ins was a bit unclear and confusing but I was able to find third party videos online showing how to install the integrated dishwasher.
I love the simplity and abundance of features such as the time light projected on the floor showing the washing in progress, set timer to finish, internal LED and the quiteness of the appliance. The 3 storage racks feels more spacious with an adjustab...le middle rack allowing greater flexibility in stacking the dirty dishes. The washing and drying result is definitely a huge improvement from my previous dishwasher. So far I am delighted with my purchase and I hope to enjoy the use of the dishwasher for many years to come.

works like a charm
1) very useful top tray for cutlery, allows you to collect cleaned items sorted by type straight into your drawer
2) washes well with aldi dishwasher tables, all comes out clean without need to use rinse aid
3) very spacious racks with flexible layout that can be flattened out to cater for large pots
4) being able to set dishwasher to 'finish washing by 6am' no matter the program selected makes delayed start configuration a breeze (no need to do mental math)

Nice made dishwasher, but can't glasses won't fit
The dishwasher is a well made German product looks good. But is let down greatly when we tried to stack wine glasses or standard glasses in the middle glass rack we noticed they won't fit. The reason for this is there are 3 racks, the very top one is for knives and forks ect but the top rack takes up room from the middle rack which is for glasses so glasses won't fit unless they are small totally forget about wine glasses fitting. So glasses have to go on the bottom rack, but they move around there. Racks aren't adjustable so you will have to remove the top knife and fork rack to fit glasses properly. Basically knife rack is a waste a utensil basket would be better.
It does a good job in cleaning all items
Questions & Answers
Hi I bought this dishwasher to replace my old Bosch SHV55M43AU
The only problem is the door off the old fits perfectly but once attached I can not open the dishwasher all the way as the bottom of the door hits the base of the dishwasher.
If I chop the door down it will be shorter than all the other cabinets in the house? Any ideas of what to do?
Hi, I can't get as straight answer from any technical manuals online or out of sales persons in store regarding the SMV88TX02A.
We are having this dishwasher integrated but the rest of our kitchen will have no handles, there is a 20mm shadowline at the top of the base cupboards. How does this dishwasher open between cycles after it has been closed? Is it push to open or will I need the cabinet maker design some sort of finger grip to be able to pull on it?
Yes - we have a handle like a draw handle. It doesn't open itself as that slight opening would release a lot of steam onto the cabinetry being as its a built in. It will dry with the door closed or you can open the door fully and let the steam out i guess.
Also you will need to have a gap in the kick board at the bottom so that you can see the light display which shines onto the floor and tells you how long to go , where it is in the cycle etc. They should have made this display adjustable and it would have been a bit better. Here;s a link to the exact version I bought - the manual covers off on a few different versions - essentially mine has a faceboard attached to the front of the dishwasher with handle as described to match our cabinetry
Not sure You may get away with the 20mm shadow line if a grip or rebate is made so you can use your fingers to grip the face board and pull the door open. cheers
Hi, I bought this unit and try to install my self, found it comes with installation drawing but has no installation instructions, can Bosch provide one?
