One of the best dishwashers I've used
Had a variety of dishwashers over the years, from Dishlex to Maytag to Miele. This one surpasses them all. Most recently had 2 Mieles which were very good, but the quietness and ability to clean and dry of the Siemens model is outstanding. Had it for close to 2 years now and mostly use the regular wash on delay start. Don't rinse dishes as a general rule beforehand. Easy to clean the filter, and the tablet dispenser hasn't caused any issues.
The use of the variable height and tines on the drawers is very helpful, and the cutlery tray is great. It can be configured to fit in just about anything. The pushbuttons do take a bit of getting used to, as they lack feedback apart from a beep. The price was very good also.
Purchased in February 2018 at Winnings.
I have had this dishwasher for a few years now and love it. Its been trouble free to date, awesome washing and drying results.
Only negative I can think of is that the kick plate on the under bench model keeps moving and tilting, it was professionally installed so Im not sure why it keeps doing it and its pretty annoying.
Purchased in December 2016.
Ticks all the boxes
Purchased this dishwasher from Winnings and I am thrilled with the way it cleans. It's very silent and the 60 minute cycle is energy efficient and does a first rate job. We have this appliance in our holiday home however I will be purchasing it for our home in Sydney when we need to replace the dishwasher there.
Purchased in January 2019 at Winning.
Excellent dishwasher - great functions
This dishwasher washes and drys really well. It has many functions and features and the zeolith drying is fantastic.
Buttons can be quite difficult to operate requiring multiple presses but you do get use to that.
Looks fantastic and operates quietly. And the five year warranty is a great bonus.
Overall a great product from an excellent company.
Very impressed with this dishwasher.
This dishwasher is the best. After having a very noisy dishwasher for many years I don't even know this one is on.I really like the large utensil drawer at the top of the dishwasher and how the controls are at the top of the door, we would always lean against the door of the other one and accidentally start it. It is quite a bit more expensive than other brands but I am hoping it will last a long time.
cleans quite good
I have been using this dishwasher for last over 2 years now. Perfect. Not much noise and cleans dishes quite well. I use normal circle most of the times. But even when i use short circle of 39 minutes, diishes comes out to be quite clean. I use my dishwasher every day. Quite happy with the product.
we have one we use ut every day have many stafe to use fast or slow and you can program it what you like and very quite my wife lobe it when she use it and have 5 star energy what say thanx for the application to tall us about it
Not everyone's cup of tea
We were after a dishwasher which is:
- as quiet as possible (we have an open kitchen area);
- children safe (no buttons on front so little ones do not mess around with them);
- to be built under;
There are 3 quietest models on the market: Bosch, Miele, Siemens. All Mieles had buttons on front so got out of consideration even though they had childlock function.
Bosch was considerably cheaper but GG took too long to get it delivered for us (over a week, in fact!) and were actually quite dismissive when we started to make inquiries so we got refund and bought Siemens from E&S instead.
I would not call the dishwasher value for money but overall we are happy with product. ...Advantages: - 5 year local warranty which is quite handy for a product that is used daily; - Really quiet, absolutely not intrusive and you can hardly hear it when doing other things; - Display is quite indicative; - No buttons on the front at all. Our little one was fascinated by display but there was nothing to push so dishwasher was left alone:) - Cleaning is not bad but nothing outstanding. I would say, on par with cheaper competitors; - Start delay good for solar energy users; Disadvantages: - Requires expensive tablets. Surely, you can use cheaper powder but then results are actually worse then in cheaper dishwashers; - Blue lighting (inside) seems cool at first but then gets irritating so we had to switch it off. I would prefer conventional white light; - Paint from buttons started to come off after one year of use; - Expensive; Good product but not everyone's cup of tea. If you are not in the market after features that I mentioned, there are cheaper alternatives.
Runs quietly and cleans well
It cleans pretty well depends on how you stack items. The Shine and dry feature is perfect with zeolith cycle. It runs quietly too, very low key humming until the end when you hear the finish cycle alarm 3 times that's spaced out every 5 seconds. It also has some practical functions, such as height-adjustable side parts and foldable flip tines. It's got a stainless steel finish and interior tub.
Pricey but worth every cent
iQ700 stainless steel finish built-under 60 cm dishwasher SN478S03TA
We purchased this appliance 6 months ago and can not be more happy with the performance.
Dishes, pots, pans, glasses, cutlery all come out sparking- even on heavy loads.
The odd time we have had a spot or residue this has been due to my poor packing - never the machine.
Eco (low water / power) modes do take longer but the machine is totally silent so we typically operate while we are asleep and put away in the morning. And when I say "silent" I actually mean "silent" - not a whisper!
Shine and dry function actually works - only sometimes some water on the top of a mug etc but nothing to cry about. ...The model has top mounted blue LEDs which light the cavity when open - at first I thought this was a gimmick but it's really handy, especially when popping a mug or bowl in and not having to turn on the kitchen lights. The racks are fully changeable meaning you can place the prongs down when needed. This could be fully flat, or half prongs which is handy for bowls. You can also fully adjust the middle rack, up, down, or on an angle (good when fitting over a pot). The appliance was purchased from the winning appliances / appliances online outlet. We were at the right place at the right time as the appliance had never been used but returned as it did not fit in a families kitchen. The team were super helpful and delivery was made next day at no cost. Any questions let me know - happy to help shoppers :)

We were told by our Bio-septic installer NOT to use dishwasher tablets. Is it possible to use powder with this model?
Thanks for the question regarding your Siemens SN478S03TA dishwasher,
You can use tablets as well as powder or liquid detergents for dishwashers, but never use washing up liquid. The dosage can be individually adjusted with powder or a liquid detergent according to the degree of soiling.

Annette27 says " It runs quietly too, very low key humming until the end when you hear the finish cycle alarm 3 times that's spaced out every 5 seconds." Isn't this annoying - you turn it on when you go to bed (it is very quiet) then two hours latter is goes Beep Beep Beep, to wake you up so you can unpack the dishwasher at 1 am ?
In the manual there should be instructions on how to switch beeping off. I seem to remember having seen them.
Hi Tim0777, all of our dishwasher have a time delay function that allows you to delay the start of the cycle for anywhere up to 24 hours, you can find the full instructions for this in the user manual and this should ensure no beeping in early hours of the morning. If you have any future queries, please feel free to call us on 1300 167 425 to discuss further. Regards, Siemens Home Australia.
