Awesome!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 22, 2018

Exceptional cleaning. It's quiet, easy to use and has a really cool top pull out shelf drawer to put utensils in. Lots of features, programmable and the timer works great. Bought from David Jones at a bargain price of $1,119. Delivered a week later and easy to put in. Very happy!

Very Happy

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 21, 2018

We inherited a dishwasher with our house which broke recently. I spent a couple days researching and reading reviews and finally settled on this dishwasher because of the good reviews. It has only been a week but I wanted to jump on and write a review as a kind of 'thanks for the reviews!'

This dishwasher is whisper quiet. We used to have to put the dishwasher on when we went to bed because we couldn't hear the TV over the noise, now we put it on you cant even hear it.
We always rinse our plates so I've only been using the 60min cycle and everything comes out perfectly clean. I don't use rinse aid and 95% of the time everything is dry. The only times are a couple of plastic items and a saucepan that had something else stacked on top of it.

We're currently using the top draw for cutlery (it also came with a basket). Our wine glasses don't fit on the glasses shelf but there is a rack they can lean against down the bottom which I've been using and it works well. Our dinner plates are quite big so dropping the glasses tray is not really an option. We can always remove the cutlery tray if we decide its not working out long term. For now Im enjoying the tray as all knives and forks are dry whereas my last machine I always had to dry them. I haven't tried the basket yet.

I like push buttons and how simple and obvious it is to use. Complicated electronics are not my cup of tea. It still has the countdown which is super useful. Both these things I was looking for with a dishwasher. The door is solid and stiff my 2yr old cant open it, the old one she used to open all the time.

Glad to have read the reviews and got a machine I'm happy with. Thanks everybody contributing!

Quality Style And Function

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 15, 2018

Easy to use, loads of useful functions, economical, whisper quiet, and it's made in Germany! Having had several others over the years, this machine is an amazing replacement. Loads of internal room, compartments are thoughtfully laid out and are highly functional. For example, the (large) top tray which takes cutlery is completely and easily removable so you can access/ move the whole lot in one go. And it looks great in stainless.
Perfection.

This is our 2nd bosch dishwasher we have installed when renovating, both worked flawlessly, easy to use and fits a huge amount of dishes! Would definitely buy again, researched and compared with other brands but kept coming back to Bosch as we have had the same model before and is very good value.

Excellent Dishwasher

5 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 22, 2018

This is my second Bosch dishwasher. My wife and I were so impressed with our previous Bosch dishwasher that it was a no brainer to get this dishwasher. Again no regrets, washes the dishes well, quiet operation, good on water and electricity. Love the cutlery tray, even though it does come with a cutlery basket if you are that way inclined.
However, just remember that all Bosch dishwashers aren't the same. You do get what you pay for i.e. friends of ours purchased the cheapest Bosch dishwasher and weren't 100% happy.
But I reiterate that this particular model is great, and give it 5 stars.

Terrific dishwasher - Bosch are dependable

5 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 12, 2018

This dishwasher does a great job. We roughly rinse plates and they come out squeaky clean. There is an option for heavily soiled pans which does a reasonable job but not if really baked on. Only had dishwasher for three weeks but no problems.
It was a replacement for a different model made in Turkey which turned out to be a lemon. (Both our sons have Turkish made models with no issues). It was difficult to ascertain the problem with it - except that it left plates with streaks or marks. Bosch were highly professional, prompt and listened to what I had to say and finally decided to refund the original cost. Thank you Bosch, I will use Bosch appliances when I can! It was purchased from Appliances Online who also provide brilliant service.

Great dishwasher - super quiet

5 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 08, 2018

Very happy so far with this dishwasher.
It looks great - I have the stainless steel version.
We chose it for its versatility. It has a large lower basket for large plates. it has racks that can fold up and down to make the most of space. it also comes with a cutlery basket that can fit anywhere along the front rack.
The upper basket can move up and down and has clips etc to hang smaller items and knives.
Finally it has a cutlery tray at the top but this can be removed completely if needed.

I also love that you can wash big trays etc from the oven by removing the top rack and fitting a spray attachment!

I scrape the plates but don't rinse. Machine cleans really well.
Only 1 wooden spoon had some rice stuck to it so far.

Plastics pool with water but that is very common.

It isn't as big as my last dishwasher but I love the options.
There are quite a few cycles to choose from including a 29 minute option.

It worked well even with my cheap aldi tablets.
oh and it is SO quiet!

Very happy with this machine

It's a great product and easy as to use. Just have to push a setting and start and away it goes. Love using the easy timer settings. Had it for a few and use it every day. Cleaned out filter but it was still pretty clean. Very energy efficient too.

Quiet, big inside, door stays open, solid drawers, did I mention quiet! Option of 29 or 60 min runs. I don’t rinse my dishes beforehand and I stack as much as I can in there and it comes out clean and dry! Best dishwasher I have ever owned and I’ve used a fair few!

A good buy

4 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 31, 2018

I purchased this after the old Bosch gave up after 8 years. At first I said I wouldn't buy Bosch again as the old one 'only' lasted 8 years. But then Bosch told me they technically are built to last 5 and after that ur lucky if they keep going! I think you can only award excellent after that period of time! Having said that, the Bosch machines are very quiet. This one does a great job even on the eco and quick settings (which is all i use). The cutlery basket was better on the old one so I swapped it over. Judging by the many reviews on this site I think you can get unlucky or lucky with any brand but overall I would say Bosch are pretty reliable.

Does the job

5 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 12, 2018

Only got it two months ago after the previous Bosch gave in after about 12 years of heavy use. This one is way quieter than the older one and has a range of settings to save water and electricity.
It does the job, no complaints so far. Bosch's service with the previous machine was always great, so assuming it will continue. All our big appliances are Bosch and always happy with the quality and after sales service.

Bosch, ‘like a Boss’. Very happy with our buy.

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 20, 2018

We bought the Bosch SMS66M102A in mid May 2018 to replace our 15 year old Omega dishwasher and couldn’t be happier. After reviewing other brands, we chose Bosch based on features, price, brand quality and great reviews. Purchased from the Good Guys at a great price. Delivered next day with minimal protective packaging – enviro bonus. Plus we claimed the $100 free Finish promotion. Triple bonus!

This dishwasher is super easy to use. We have a 5 person family and we load it heavily every second day using the delay-start feature to coincide with clean energy from our pv solar panels, or off-peak at night. It runs so quietly, you barely hear it operating. All the dishes come out hygienically clean, almost completely dry, ready for the kids to put away. Perfect! The cutlery VarioDrawer and adjustable height second dish rack are clever features, plus the foldable dish prongs make this a fantastic and versatile machine. The eco cycle is particularly energy efficient. We haven’t had it long enough to track water and energy savings yet, but the specs are impressive! We bought a Bosch ‘pyro’ oven a few years back and it’s also amazing. Highly recommend Bosch appliances, easy to use, clever design, reliable, efficient and great value for money. We’re super pleased with the purchase of our Bosch SMS66M102A. Thanks Bosch, like a boss!

Super Quiet & Efficient

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 25, 2018

I have had the Bosch washing machine for just over 2 weeks now. After reading the reviews, I must say definitely does not disappoint. It is SUPER quiet with so many settings for different wash types. It leaves dishes sparkling clean and dry. It is also great with energy and water saving. I would highly recommend this washing machine to anyone who is looking for an update. It is well worth the money you pay for it. I have a lot of confidence with the Bosh dish washers and will always use it.

Quiet & Efficient

5 out of 5, reviewed on Apr 26, 2018

It took me days of researching nearly every brand of dishwasher on the market before deciding on a German made Bosch. It was at the high end of the price range, but I figured I was going to be used once or even twice a day, and I wanted a good quality dishwasher that would last.
Whilst I haven’t had mine for a very long time yet, I am extremely happy with my decision!- It is whisper quiet- it literally makes no noise at all! It cleans and dries dishes so well, I use the 1hr function & it cleans even my dirtiest pots & pans.
I love the adjustable top shelf and the cutlery tray up the top (I took the one out from the bottom as it frees up more space for other things).
Definitely happy to recommend this particular Bosch dishwasher to family & friends!

Very Quiet

We've had this for 2 weeks, very quiet, cleans very well and dries the best I've seen from any dishwasher, even plastics.
Very quiet, we thought the one it replaced was quiet, this is even more so.
Quick wash function, it can do a complete, fairly heavily marked load, in an hour.
Very impressive.

Bosch is my favorite washing machine as it is very durable, never broke down in last two years, very dependable and very friendly with electricity and water saving. It is very silent and very user friendly. The programs are ready to fit any user and can accommodate most of a house hold requirements.

Reliable Bosch Quality

4 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 02, 2018

I have had this dish washer for a few years now and although it may be smaller than the one I had previously the shelving is well designed and tall enough so I can fit a decent amount of dishes inside. It cleans the dishes well if they've been rinsed and has never left soap stains on the dishes! Seems to be water and electrically efficient as far as I can tell.

Reliable and washes great, love the cutlery drawer

5 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 07, 2018

Best Dishwasher I've ever had, tons of setting to change the length of the wash time, I use 45c and Vario which can wash in at 1 hour 15 minutes, the trays can be height adjusted to deal with large dinner plates and pots. The cutlery drawer can handle more than you ever need to wash and they always comes out clean. The machines is very quiet and the delayed start is useful.

Questions & Answers

SMS66MW01A (White)

Hi, do you HAVE TO use finish or similar products? I have rarely used them in my Dishlex dishwasher and have read that some dishwashers actually state that a rinse aid MUST be used. Looking to buy this model Bosch in the next day or so. Mike

PRS OIL asked on Nov 12, 2018

Answer this

Best ask Bosch, they are very helpful. Still very happy with our dishwasher.

Hi PRS OIL, thanks for your question. We recommend Finish but you can use any brand you wish. Regards, Bosch Home Australia.

SMS66MW01A (White)

How do I operate the pre-rinse cycle on the SMS66MW01A? All the literature makes it sound like there is a stand alone pre-rinse program but I can't find it! Thanks.

Eva asked on Sep 30, 2018

Answer this

Hi Eva, thanks for your question. Our dishwashers do not have a stand alone pre-rinse cycle, the pre-rinse is already included in the program cycles. Regards, Bosch Home Australia.

SMS66MI02A (Stainless Steel)

Hi there! Three questions: - does this dishwasher take tall wine glasses? - does the door stay open when loading? (comparing to Miele where reviewers complained that the door wouldn't stay open which would be very annoying!) - how well does it dry plastics? Thanks!

Ali asked on May 21, 2018

Answer this

Yes, tall wine glasses fit, the drawers are adjustable, ours didn't fit as delivered but no problem after moving the drawers.
Yes, the door opens fully and stays open in the fully open position.
Dries plastic ok, has an extra dry function that helps, not wonderful but ok. The tablets we use impact this, some are much better than others. It takes a bit of trial and error.

Hi there
To fit tall glasses/wine glasses you do need to drop the higher shelf to its lower setting, which reduces the space in the lower shelf (however I don’t find this an issue as you can still fit dinner sized plates on the bottom). Sometimes if I need to put big items in the bottom and have bigger glasses too I just put them in the bottom shelf as well.
The door most definitely stays open in any postition.
50% of nearly every wash I put on contains Tupperware (kids!) and I use finish quantum tablets with finish rinse aid & ive never had an issue with wet plastics, unless of course I open the dishwasher immediately after the cycle has finished.
Also we only ever use the Quick 60 minute or Quick 29 minute setting and we very roughly rinse our dishes but put everything in fairly dirty and they always are cleaned perfectly.
I hope this helps

Thanks so much Greg and Lauren. That’s really helpful!
