Absolute Rubbish - Look for Another Brand - Extremely Disappointed
Does not dry dishes at all
Cannot adjust shelves adequately to fit a beer glass
The wine glass rack does not hold the stem of the glass
The bottom rack does not have the ability to fold over plate holders
And so much more is wrong that this dishwasher does not do the job it was built for. And it was worth $1499. Its crap!
Spoke to the Good Guys at Traralgon VIC and they basically told me "Tuff" you've used it! Well how do you know if it does the job if you don't use it? Don't buy from the Good Guys, this is the second time they have ripped ...

Technical Support & Manual Instructions
Brand new dishwasher delivered yesterday. After running an initial cycle first used the dishwasher last night with actual dishes. Woke this morning to dishes covered in lots of water? I'm pretty sure the machine ran for 2+ hours on cold water!
I spent hours pouring over the manual yesterday I've have come to the conclusion it's a bad translation from German, e.g., what is a 'Multitab', is there a difference between drinking water and tap water, what instructions in the manual refer to my model of dishwasher?
I tried to call the 1300 number h...

Not suitable for household that has loads of bowls
I just replaced by Miele dishwasher with this German made dishwasher. It is very quiet and user friendly. It's good if a household have most cutlery using plates. Unfortunately, 70-80% of our cutlery are bowls of 20-30cm in diameters. The spikes not designed to hold the bowls upright (90 degree), like the Miele dishwasher. Bosch spikes are holding at an 60 degree angle with the bowls overlapping each other. As such, you may have 10 spikes but can only hold 3 bowls if not overlapping. Due to this, water can't wash in between bowls properly. I've...arranged them differently and washed them in the last couple of washes. Disappointed I've to waste time washing many of the bowls and drying them manually. Also, a lot of the remnants are deposited on in the washer. Very disappointed to have a German made premium dishwasher and manually washing my bowls.

Broke right away
It broke after 4 months. This is a quite expensive dishwasher and we bought it to replace our old one that broke down every 2 months, so it's quite unforgivable that it broke so fast. What makes it worse is that trying to get through to get it repaired is near impossible - they're either too busy or blame their computer system for being broken. Will avoid Bosch like the plague from here on.

Bought Bosch after Blanko
I bought this dishwasher approx 2 months ago and I've been disappointed....Whilst I agree with others here that yes its very quiet, has many functions etc, It doesn't perform well overall. The dishes ALWAYS come out wet! this is despite selecting the extra dry function.
My previous Blanko dishwasher dried the dishes much better.
I expected better than this from Bosch.

Disappointing - poor quality in some respects
This is my third Bosch dishwasher and it is disappointing to find the quality has slipped.
The cutlery tray at the top is shoddy and gets stuck/falls apart every time it is pulled out.
Very annoying for the cost.
It is very quiet, but putting it back together after every wash cycle is going to be very annoying.

Talk about Buyers Remorse. Don't Buy IT !!!!!
Talk about Buyers Remorse ! What a piece of Rubbish....purchased it after our intial Bosch died after 12 years. We have had the Serie 6 for 2 months and are more than disappointed. Despite rinsing our plates prior to washing... does not do a thorough job and takes forever to dry our glasses/dishes despite leaving it on "Extra Dry" setting. Do yourself a favour and look elsewhere... wish we had :(

quick cycle defaults to 59 minutes
Q: Why is the quick 29 minute cycle defaulting to 54 minutes I'm unable to change back to 29 minutes .. ...
A: Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch dishwasher.
If no rinse aid is present, the dishwasher will presume that a 3-in-1 tablet is being used (which contains a rinse aid component or ‘Powerball’). These tablets generally take slightly longer to dissolve completely. The dishwasher adds some extra time to ensure the tablet is fully dissolved to maintain optimum wash quality results.

Questions & Answers
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?

Can this dishwasher be connected to a hot water supply?
And does it have the A:00 program? Could not find it.
I've just been on the phone to Bosch and they couldn't tell me, but the Applicances Online website does state this is Cold Water intake only.
