Work great - very quiet
Had the dishwasher a few weeks, it's used daily. Cleans the dishes well and is very quiet. The option to do half loads has been very handy. We did get the extended warranty to be safe but that is more of a pre-caution should there be any issues in the future. I would highly recommend this dishwasher - SMS88TI01A
This was a beautiful dishwasher but highly unreliable. Its heating element failed a month before warranty end and they had to order the part in, leaving us without a dishwasher for over 2 weeks. Then 2 months after its warranty ended its computer failed which was apparently a $500+ repair. I called Bosch but they basically said too bad so we binned it. I wouldn’t touch a Bosch appliance again.
Quiet and very effective
I have had this dishwasher since March of 2016 - it does an excellent job and is very easy to operate. The dishwasher is very quiet in operation compared to previous washers I have owned and there is no issues with running it in an open plan designed house or apartment. The materials used feel like they are of very high quality and the machine is solidly built. The internal wash drawers are great -they can be arranged in a number of formats to accomodate all sorts of dish sizes. There is a top drawer that is great for utensils and cutlery, as well as the ability to raise and lower the middle drawer so that big items can fit in. You can also remove the middle drawer and use the special attachment to wash extra large items that would not fit otherwise - the attachment ensures that the water is directed to clean the central area of the machine so the extra large items are washed properly. The external design is sleek and understated so it suits the kitchen context well. The control panel is located inside the door on the top edge and is easy to operate although the start button does not always respond when pressed. The led display on the front door is clear and easy to read. I am happy with this dishwasher and would definitely recommend it as a quiet and effective machine.
Good quality dish washer
Our first dishwasher was quite easy to install. We have had it for 3 months and no problems so far. No leaks, drains well and no problems so far and we don't rinse our dishes before putting them in. Cleans well and I love the 44 min cycle as it cleans well but saves on water and power.
Upper arm hitting upper rack - Noise problem
I have bought 2 of these dishwashers based on the reviews on productreview and also recommended to my family and friends.
However, after using this dishwasher for 3 months I see two issues common in my dishwasher.
Upper arm hitting upper basket during cleaning cycle and make lot of noise. This happen with both of the dishwashers.
I understand that these dishwashers don't use heating element but drying is not satisfactory. sometimes when I pull out cutlery tray after ECO cycle it is full of water. i have raised the concern with Bosch Support and hope they will help me out.
One of the best decisions we’ve ever made!
It looks classy from the front, there’s no buttons for the kids to poke at (they’re all on the inside edge) and I absolutely LOVE the tray for cutlery. It’s insanely quiet, the only time I hear it running is when the water hits against something like the inside the frying pan.
I’m sure they recommend something really expensive for cleaning products, but I use Aldi brand tablets for the eco wash and the Aldi powder for the quick half hour washes, also use the Aldi brand rinse aid and found they work just the same.
It cleans really well, probably a 98% hit rate, it’s usually things I should’ve soaked that need a quick once over in the sink (or second round in the dishwasher if I’m feeling lazy!) plenty of room inside for us as a family of 4.
I have nothing but praise for this machine and highly recommend it.
Spotless cleaning and extremely quiet!
The most luxurious looking dishwasher I have ever seen! I love all the different settings and additional features it offers. I always use the extra dry option as it even dries all plastics and I never had an issue with glass cups either. I always scrape my dishes with a brush to avoid any scrapes clogging the dishwasher. I have been using this dishwasher for a couple of months now and I never had any issues with it. I usually put it on at night before we go to sleep and the noise never annoyed us. Installation was easy as we did it on our own. Definitely worth the money!
We bought this to replace our 10 year old Bosch that broke. It had been a pretty good dishwasher so we just went the same brand again.
We installed ourselves and the installation manual was terrible. Luckily YouTube videos helped somewhat.
We have been using it for about a month now and are happy with it.
Doesn’t disappoint. Clean perfectly every time
Very satisfied. This dishwasher cleans everything very well, runs the water to a very high temperature which dissolves all foodscraps and leaves dishes drier than most dishwashers. Runs very quietly, can hardly hear it.
Has a great feature where it shows the estimated cycle finish time which comes in handy. Only slight bugbear is the middle drawer doesn’t quite have the clearance to stack the majority of our glass tumblers on it as they bump against the cutlery drawer. Other than that very happy with my purchase.
This is a gem compared to my last dishwasher. The option to lower or raise the upper basket is fantastic. It’s so quiet & I mean QUIET! The only 2 things that I have to say against it is wine glasses have trouble standing & the cutlery wash tray up top is useless if you have the machine on an economical setting,but putting those two silly things aside it is outstanding!! Cleaning on the outside is a breeze.
When I apply different settings, I am satisfied with the features/controls and their performance of this product
I will filter the cutlery before I put it in the dishwasher, lest the residue clog up
rarely clog, because I will filter with water beforehand, even if there is a blockage can be removed to clean
Reasonable-ish Cleaning and Drying Performance, Lots of Features and Quiet!
Dishwasher itself like most dishwashers doesn't clean amazingly, even using Finish Quantum on the 45-65 degree auto cycle doesn't get stains out of our dishes sometimes and the stains are fresh and not burnt on however this is an occasional occurrence and dishwasher generally cleans okay, drying performance of dishwasher is sub par with dishes sometimes coming out wet after a cycle, despite having a rinse aid dispenser level of 6. The machine has a slew of desirable features including a Half Load option, Vario speed to complete a cycle quicker and extra dry as well as sanitisation options, machine is also very quiet which makes it ideal to operate at night. I can recommend this machine to people who need day to day general cleaning needs and to people who cook but not extensively. I would have to possibly recommend going for a more higher end appliance of likes of something Like Miele as the build quality and performance will be slightly better, overall the machine is reasonable enough for me and probably for anyone other person.
I am very happy with my new Bosch dishwasher. Great product, no complaints. works very quietly and does a great job. i would highly recommend this product. Energy efficient and takes very less water. No extra burden on those bills. Interior of the dishwasher is spacious and fits large bowls and plates.
So quiet and reliable
You cant hear the bosch dishwasher running. We purchased bc of brand. White colour. Child lock and price. Purchased online from appliances online with free delivery. Never had any problems. Tells you how many minutes till it finished on a countdown. . 1 button start. Helped sell our house too.
Pleasantly Surprised - Highly Recommended!
I have read and compared a dozen or so dishwashers. In the end, this unit had THE best reviews. So many positive reviews, I thought it was either: (a) a really good unit; or (b) Bosch hired a lot of fake customers. : D
I went into Good Guys and had a look in person. My immediate impression of the unit was little disappointing. The silver strip front facia that runs along behind the black display screen is made of plastic and looks cheap. The rest of the front facia is stainless steel. The deal the Good Guys had was attractive enough to bought it. I paid, $1,263 inclusive of GST, plus delivery and installation.
I started off using the 'Quick' cycle that takes 45min. I figured when the plates and bowls come out not fully cleaned, I will switch to a longer cycle. After more than 1 month of usage, I am still using the 'Quick' cycle.
As others have stated, this unit is very quiet. The tap turning on and off made more noise than the unit operating normally.
If you are installing the unit yourself please read - this unit came with anti-flooding water hose. It is not just a flexi hose, but it comes with a hard plastic device attached to the end of the hose that cannot be bent. So, if your tap under the sink is too close to the dishwasher cabinet, your tap may need to be relocated. The anti-flooding device needs about 200mm of space coming straight out of the tap.
I am very impressed and I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking to purchase a new dishwasher.
A very good purchase indeed
It you are going to buy a dishwasher, this would be our recommendation. It is fast, efficient, quiet and the dishes come out very clean. Love the level of flexibility with the drawers. Took a while to get used to the top cutlery drawer but now would not have it any other way as it leaves so much more room in the bottom to fit those big pots and pans. Great purchase and highly recommend this product.
We’re in love.
It’s safe to say that we love this dishwasher! The dishes always come out clean and we can hardly even hear it running, we put it on over night and sleep right through it. We got this at a really good price and couldn’t be happier. Would recommend this dishwasher to others.
Happy with my purchase.
Overall I’m happy with the performance of the dishwasher. It washes and drys the dishers well.
I am however really disappointed that it doesn’t have a remaining time countdown. There is a red light indicator that is visible on the floor on the bottom right of the machine, but seems a little useless, as you can still hear the machine going.
We have had this for a couple of months after our Miele died (after 6 years) and are very happy with it.Its quiet,everything comes out clean,it has quick cycles and was a great price.Its not as big inside as the Miele and I’m not a massive fan of the cutlery drawer as with a big family I struggle to fit all the cutlery in but it does come with a basket too.overall very happy with this dishwasher.
Well Priced and does its job
Well priced hence good value. Looks good with the stainless front. Washes OK but often leaves food stuck on plates. Is reasonably quiet. Seems to use a lot of rinse-aid. Only really use the short wash as the long wash is way to long. Easy to keep clean has scratched a few glasses.
