Bosch has got better than 10 years ago
We previously had a Bosch Dishwasher that lasted just on 10 years and we decided not to repair it. We looked around extensively at all makes but still came up with purchasing a 6 series dishwasher. Got quick delivery from The Good Guys, and I hooked it up myself since its so easy to connect and disconnect when you have existing connections.
Something i learned which amazed me - a phone call I made to Bosch revealed that if you clean your plates before you put them inside the dishwasher, then the sensor can't see if they are dirty and attempts ...to apply a wash cycle accordingly, so leave them alone! Didn't think it was that sophisticated to tell. Anyhow, my wife wasn't happy with the previous series 6 not washing items properly which she thinks is due to too little water being used. With this unit for the last 3 months since purchasing, we always use the Super Wash + extra dry option with every load so its 2 hrs 25 mins, BUT everything comes out super clean. All our previous washes with heigene option added were 2hrs 15mins, so no change really to what we were used to. We have always loved the cutlery drawer which is a must when we look for a dishwasher as we are so used to it. With this design machine, I can tell its about 75-100mm at least lower as im reaching down to the cutlery drawer a bit more, but its no big bother at all, just something I noticed. We fit drinking glasses that are quite tall (14cm) in the drawer so we do not see any issues with glassware or cookware, infact this design seems to fit better than previous. We never have to adjust the height of the drawers, so everything runs like clockwork and we never have to chop and change positions of the drawers. The machine is even quieter than before, so yet another positive improvement. You can barely tell the machine is on if it wasn't for the lights on on the control panel.

I just ... LOVE IT!!!
So clean, so quite! No scraping, just rinsing a bit.
I really want to work out the 29mins cycle (it turns to 44) , but for the rest, i just switch the auto and thats it.
Comparing to my old, cheap and basic dishwasher, that was basically just storing the dishes that i had to wash again after taking out, the bosch one is incredible. Its actually does the freaking job!!! Love it! Hope it will last :)

Bought from binglee, fast shipping with small delivery fee. Only have small issue with water connection when it equipped with solenoid valve so you need drill a big hole for installation.

We bought a new Bosch SMS66MI02A dishwasher from The Good Guys in Cairns last Wednesday to replace the SMEG dishwasher that was in our current home when we bought it after it had once again failed.
We had a Bosch at our previous residence which replaced a failed Kleenmaid dishwasher after it flooded the house.
That Bosch was great but this one is so quiet, I have to listen to check if it is actually running and it does a great job in washing and drying everything.

Very quiet and efficient machine
We bought the machine from the Good Guys, who were very helpful. The machine is extremely quiet, sometimes you wouldn't know it was operating.
The washing cycle cleans efficiently and have always been satisfied with level of cleanliness.
It appears to need 2.5 hours to dry items though. anything less and dishes etc may not be dry.

The quietest dishwasher I've ever seen.
Owned it for more then a year now (waited some time before I review).
Cannot fault this dishwasher. Really.
Apart from the fact, that everybody seems to mention, that it's quite as a whisper, it's really is a great dishwasher.
It's just doing exactly what it suppose to do, nothing more, nothing less.
Dishes are coming out clean, the drawers organised in such a way you can fit almost anything you want, with folding dividers (I change them all the time) and the ability to change the higher of the middle drawer (you do it once and leave it, thoug...

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.

Great machine but small problem
I love this dish washer. My problem is a friend came over and was helping. She unpacked the dish washer and took out the knife rack. I can’t work out how to get it back in so it holds and stays in place. Can’t see that anything is broken. Help please.

Having bought the dishwater from Harvey Norman's at a very competitive price, we find it very efficient and quiet. The control panel is very easy to manage as well the stacking of the dishes. This is our second Bosch dish water and we would most certainly recommend the Series Six appliance for an average household.

This dishwasher is fantastic ,the 60 minute cycle is enough to clean our dishes, very quite and drys really well ,even the plastic came out dry. I highly recommend this product.

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.

Quiet, Fast, Super Cleaning Machine
Best Dishwasher ever, went for the German model, full stainless steel internals due to reports of a lingering odour that comes from the non German models due to them not being all stainless steel internals.
Cleaning in the 60 minute cycle cleans everything, passes a white cotton glove test, and surprisingly takes only 60 minutes - other dishwashers cycle times have generally exploded well beyond their displayed times. Its in a open plan kitchen and we can barely hear it. Uses very little water and has fast heating cycles
No problems with its...mechanisms and have had no faults to date. 14 settings, large baskets, separate cutlery drawer and a dispenser that cunningly releases tablets into a basket at the right time, gives this dishwasher results in the clean that me and my better half have not experienced before, very clean and dry. Great Work Bosch, your German factory is a tier above your competitors.

Clean results each time. Love it
Never thought that a dishwasher would create such clean results so consistently. Build quality is pretty good. Easy to clean and maintain, and it seems to use less water by re-using the rinse water from last cycle

Easy to use Fast program big space inside for a big family . Got lots of options to chose .
No need for hot water System .Dishes dry and clean under machine never have a bad Smell.

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.
