18 months and same failure twiceSonicare DiamondClean
My partner purchased this model for both of us in late 2021 and both our 1st toothbrushes failed after about 9-10 months with the device totally shutting down. I noticed before mine went that it went into a state of continuously turning itself on. They both got replaced and now 9 months later, same thing again for my replacement. If I was a betting man, I would say my partner’s replacement will also fail as well shortly. No explanation as to why it would happen, but I do recall my partner was asked if we had dropped our device. In other words t... Read morehey were trying to find a way they could deny the warranty claim. I can say we have always been careful and treated our toothbrush as well as anything you pay good and lots of money for. Always been especially careful since the 1st one to keep it clean and dry but same result. Hopefully when we contact Phillips again, they offer to replace both devices with a model that has no issues as it is obvious to us there is a reoccurring issue with this model. The model has been by chance now discontinued. I wonder why??

My sonicare broke after 2 years and 2 monthsSonicare DiamondClean HX9362/67 (Pink)
My sonicare broke down after 2 years and 2 months just outside of warranty. I have contacted consumer care and they won't provide a replacement. I have told them I have financial problems and have been in hospital with covid and can't afford a new one. They offered 10 percent off but I cannot afford one after spending 300 dollars on this toothbrush. Please Philips can you send me a new handle.Show details
I think I am finally done after the 6th of the Diamondclean toothbrushes!Sonicare DiamondClean HX9312/04 (Rose Gold)
I literally love this toothbrush so much. Not just because it really cleaned my teeth also its just very pretty. I have to say I am literally long time fan because I've been using it for over 10 years now. However, Just after my 6th one gave away around 2years mark, I finally realised it is just too much for what it is. It is just very disappointing as one of the top brand toothbrushes. It won't charge and it would randomly turn on in the middle of night. And this time after I contacted the customer support they just simply cant do anything for... Read more me and offer me some discount for the next purchase. I think I'd like to keep my toothbrush if its still working rather than keep on having to spend $400 every second or 3rd year to replace it. Safe to say, I don't think I will ever buy another one of these and I will not recommend it to anyone else anymore.
Great for a year then it breaksSonicare DiamondClean HX9362/67 (Pink)
I’ve had two of these now and both after a year have broken. They are super hard to keep clean under the brush attachment so you need to ensure you do this otherwise it gets all gross. Both after a year have had malfunctions in the on off button meaning they don’t turn off and will randomly turn on. Really annoying when you’ve bought 3 of these and all 3 have been thrown out, at $299 a pop I won’t be using Phillips again. (2 were mine, one was another family member)Show details
Stopped working after 8 monthsSonicare DiamondClean HX9352/04 (Black)
While I did love this toothbrush, it is way expensive for a product that just doesn't last. I would never purchase again based on the fact that they don't last and the battery life just progressively gets worse. Don't recommend.Show details
Exemplary CleaningSonicare DiamondClean HX9372/04 (Amethyst)
I have used an Oral B smart toothbrush for some years and found buying the matching smart brush heads almost impossible last year as they were no longer available anymore anywhere online or retail.
To replace it I bought a top of the line Philip’s Sonicare toothbrush and Air Flosser and have been really impressed by the improvements in oral cleanliness and ease of use. I brush my teeth just prior to showering while in the shower and the brush is fully water resistant for that purpose. The toothbrush gives clear audible and vibration feedback i
DO NOT BUY if you plan on using it more than 2 yearsSonicare DiamondClean HX9372/04 (Amethyst)
Purchased a Sonicare HX9370 due to over brushing as I believed it was the top of the range electronic brush...only for it to not work after just over a year. Contacted Phillips support and was able to get a replacement which died again just after their 2 year warranty - this time support refused to take ownership and replace. For $269, you would expect this device to have some quality control. Do not recommend at all, all the reviews here confirm this device is NOT designed to last. Disappointing to say the least.Show details
The only brand I would use.Sonicare DiamondClean HX9362/67 (Pink)
I have used the Philips Sonicare toothbrush for many years now. Got the latest one end of August 2020, after my older more basic model finally gave way after many years. The battery must have finally died, as unfortunately the internal battery can't be replaced without replacing the whole set. That is my only gripe. Considering how expensive this toothbrush is, it would be great if the battery could be changed or serviced.
Despite this, the battery does last for many years. I share my toothbrush (with different heads of course) with my... Read morefamily, so, it does get it's use out of it. Using a manual toothbrush is really a thing of the past, and it isn't until you use one of these, and realise how clean your teeth feels. I wish I also could splurge out on the AirFloss. But at least I can have the best of toothbrushes.
Love it! But I’m onto my 4th one. All dead a few weeks after 2 yr mark, except for the first one.Sonicare DiamondClean HX9352/49 (Black)
I love this toothbrush. My partner and I are long time users. But, the toothbrush never last past the two year mark. They all die around then. It’s really pricey to be replacing such a toothbrush every two years!!
The earlier version of this toothbrush seems to be of a better quality. My first ever toothbrush of this model lasted way longer than subsequent ones.Show details
Works well for as long as it worksSonicare DiamondClean HX9372/04 (Amethyst)

All 3 toothbrushes broken just after 2 yearsSonicare DiamondClean HX9352/04 (Black)
When I first tried it, I loved it and bought all my family members 1 each. Just after 2 years, all 3 had stop working. Very expensive toothbrush to be replaced after 2 years. It is a common issue with these toothbrushes as reviews have shown. Read the negative reviews before buying.Show details
Stopped working after less than 2 yearsSonicare DiamondClean HX9352/04 (Black)
Compared with my.previous Braun OralB I thought the Philips Sonicare was about 80% as effective in terms of cleaning. Good battery life though, until it died after 20 months, started turning itself on and off in the middle of the night then died completelyShow details
Good but breaks down too quickSonicare DiamondClean HX9352/04 (Black)
I bought one of these about 3 years ago. I'm on my 4th replacement. Honestly they just don't last. Philips does replace it no questions asked each time, but I would expect a produvct iyf this price to last for several years.Show details
Broken just over two yearsSonicare DiamondClean HX9362/67 (Pink)
Considering the price and the life of the toothbrush, I would suggest anyone who is considering buying this product buy an extended warranty. It is highly likely the brush would be broken just over two years life.
Having spoken to their livechat, I was told their toothbrush has been designed to last more than 5 years in a range of conditions. The battery included in this product has been tested to perform for at least 10 years.
That's really inconsistent with the real lifespan of their product.Show details
Questions & Answers
What is the most effective way of cleaning the toothpaste that builds up and dries inside of the buttons? I try hot water while pressing the buttons, is there any kind of solution i can use to thorougly clean them?
Thank you for your review.
We recommend carrying out a detailed weekly cleaning session. Just follow the easy steps below: Remove the brush head. Rinse the bottom of the brush head with warm water. Rinse the metal shaft area with warm water. Clean the bottom of the toothbrush handle with a damp cotton swab to remove any residue. Wipe the entire surface of the handle with a wet cloth. Never use the dishwasher to clean your toothbrush or any of its accessories. Do not puncture the rubber seal around the metal shaft, as this may cause water damage.

Doesn’t matter what you do. Even if you follow the advice from Phillips like we did, chances are the tooth brush will fail. I have gone through 2 toothbrushes so far in a little over 12 months and still waiting on my 2nd replacement. The funny thing is that although Phillips already have the details on record from the last warranty claim, and we have already answered all their questions, they still are in denial. You will find the device is now discontinued. I wonder why?? Good thing we took out a 3 year warranty on ours originally. Will be a long road.
I'm not certain what Sonicare has done in manufacturing its toothbrushes over the years, but they have seriously deteriorated in quality. I'm probably on our 7th toothbrush in less than 5 years with 5 of them a result of them not working properly. I continue to have a problem - the same problem - with the on/off button not working. I understand part of the problem is probably the toothpaste gunk that gets into and around the on-off button. Why in the world after 3 years of this problem doesn't Sonicare fix the problem by manufacturing them with a silicone sheath over the handle that covers the on/off button. I love the clean I get with a Sonicare but I'm now ready to give up. We have had these toothbrushes less than 2 years and after spending over $300 for 2 of them, they do not turn on. So I'm done - moving on to something else that does not come with such unnecessary frustration. Shame on Sonicare for not responding to this issue which obviously many, many people encounter every morning and night.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this elaborate review. Your feedback means a lot to us, and we will definitely forward it to our product team for future improvements.
Toothpaste residue might indeed cause the power button to get stuck and not function properly. We recommend removing the brush head after each use and rinsing the brush head and the handle under water to remove residue.
Seven toothbrushes in less than five years certainly don't reflect the quality we aim to provide. We totally understand your frustration, and we'll be happy to assist you before you give up on our brand.
We'd like to refer you to our colleagues for more information. You can reach them directly on 1300 363 391 (Australia), or 0800 658 224 (New Zealand) from Mondays to Saturdays: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm EST. They're always happy to help!

I have had my toothbrush fail due to the top seal disintegrating and water getting inside the toothbrush. Philips did provide me with a replacement but i noticed the top seal had fallen apart on this one after a year. I think the seal on the top is a weak point in the design
Thanks for reaching out to us. We are sorry to hear that the seal on your replacement Sonicare has broken, how disappointing. It would be great if we could take a closer look at your toothbrush so that we can see how we can help you further.

My sonic care won't turn on - when placed on the charger it is lighting up and blinking.
what does this mean, it is about 1 year old.
Mine refused to even light up also after about 1 year. Someone from philips suggested I do a factory reset which is:
After charging for 24 hrs, and while still on charge, press and hold down the start button for a full 7 seconds.
This worked on mine although it seemed to have its own mind for 24 hrs after, turning on, cycling thru modes on its own. It’s ok now.
These Phillips toothbrushes are known the die after 1-2 years. It looks like your battery is not retaining charge. I had to replace some of the toothbrushes with new batteries. It requires soldering, so unless you are quite handy, I would suggest to call phillips and they will replace your toothbrush. There’s 2 years warranty on them. When the warranty runs out, save the money and buy the oral-b new design toothbrushes instead.
Hi there, Kelly.
Thanks for reaching out to us! We're sorry to hear this. Have you perhaps tried a factory reset? This can be done by charging it for 24 hours, and then press and hold the power button for 7 seconds, while keeping the toothbrush on the charger.
If this doesn't work out then our colleagues from our support team would happily look into this for you. Feel free to reach out to us on Facebook and/or Twitter (@PhilipsCare) for further assistance. Alternatively, you can contact our support team by phone on: 1300 363 391.
