One of the best decisions we’ve ever made!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 13, 2018

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!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 06, 2018

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!

Works well

4 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 01, 2018

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

5 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 13, 2018

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.

Super quiet!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 03, 2018

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.

Bosch SMS88TI01A

4 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 01, 2018

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!

3 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 18, 2018

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.

Pleasantly Surprised - Highly Recommended!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 07, 2018

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

5 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 26, 2018

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.

4 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 23, 2018

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.

Great dishwasher

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

4 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 16, 2018

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.

Very happy with the dishwasher, easy to keep clean, the dishes are truly dry and clean, has a few options of cleaning cycles from fast to long, has delay options (to run when the solar systems are going) LOADS of space to put dishes, you get a cutlery tray OR a drawer (prefer the drawer) and bonus is that it is super quiet!

Cleans well but sometimes smells

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 28, 2018

We bought this 3 years ago and at first had no issues cleaned very dirty dishes very well and never had many that came out still dirty. However over the past few months each wash has smelt worse and worse. We've ran cleaners through the dish washer but it didn't change much and think it's the water in our area maybe

This thing is awesome

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 22, 2018

This Bosch came to replace a series 6 we had that died. I am rapt with the dishwasher: quiet, great at cleaning dishes and glasses, easy to clean the bottom area where residue can collect & the cutlery drawer up the top is so much better than a cutlery tray. The only thing I have found that's slightly annoying is that my wine glasses don't quite fit in the top rack (they are a bit too tall) so I am back to handwashing them. It's not a deal breaker for me. Should probably drink less wine anyway. All in all, an awesome dishwasher!

Updated dishwasher

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 09, 2018

Performs well, runs very quietly. This machine replaces a well loved 17 year old Bosch dishwasher. The new machine has several new features and hopefully will be more economical because it uses less water per cycle. Very pleased with my new purchase. The dIshes are clean and dry after each wash.
