Highlights

ActiveWater: less water & energy, better performance & quality.

ActiveWater™ is a revolutionary dishwashing system that uses every single drop of water to the maximum. Our ActiveWater™ dishwashers are amongst the most resource-efficient in the world, generating the cleaning power of over 4,000 litres from as little as 12.3 litres per wash. No single appliance leaves our factory until it has been proven to meet our high standards of quality, performance and sustainability. All Bosch ActiveWater™ dishwashers undergo 200 individual quality control checks before being released from the factory.

AquaSensor™: stain detection for brilliantly clean dishes.

The AquaSensor™ helps you save more water as it measures the amount of soiling at the end of the pre-rinse cycle, reusing water when it can, saving up to 20% for the entire wash.

Automatic programs ensure the best cleaning performance every time.

By choosing the automatic program, your dishwasher will assess how soiled the items are and adjust the program time and temperature accordingly. This provides best results while making the most of saving water and energy.

AquaStop with 100% lifetime guarantee against water damage.

The AquaStop™ Plus system consists of a double-walled supply hose, a safety valve, as well as a floor sump with float switch, offering 100% protection against water damage. Guaranteed by Bosch.

LoadSensor adjusts the water level for optimum wash results.

The LoadSensor intelligently detects the amount of dishes that are loaded into the dishwasher and adjusts the amount of water used for optimum wash results. Bigger loads need more water, while smaller loads require less. The load sensor provides optimal water usage even for half loads or partial loads, saving water and electricity.

EcoSilence Drive™: powerful, durable, quiet and efficient.

Our advanced motor has been built to provide you with maximum efficiency, economy, and durability while operating. EcoSilence Drive® wash and drain pumps work without brushes, resulting in energy efficiency, optimim wash results, and ultra-silent performance. Additionally, the drain pump cuts out as soon as the water is drained, avoiding any air intake and the loud ‘gurgle’ sound that comes with it.

Glass protection technology for extra gentle handling for your delicate glasses.

Because soft water causes glass corrosion, Bosch dishwashers with glass protection technology constantly regulate the degree of hardness. This is how we ensure that valuable glasses and delicate china are always washed with special care.

IntensiveZone™: effectively cleans pots and pans at the press of a button.

The IntensiveZone™ function transforms the entire bottom basket into a power cleaning zone, by increasing the water pressure in the bottom basket, saving you the chore of scrubbing heavily soiled pots and pans.

Delay wash programs to start when you are ready.

With the time delay function, you can delay the start time of the selected wash program. This provides you greater convenience to operate the appliance when it suits you - be it day or night. After the program starts, the remaining time is displayed.

Need perfect wash results fast? SpeedPerfect is the answer.

The SpeedPerfect® wash option reduces the wash program time by up to 50% for the fastest wash possible – perfect for when time is of the essence.

(on select models this option is available as VarioSpeed)

Heat Exchanger: energy efficient and hygienic drying system.

The Bosch HeatExchanger uses residual heat from the main wash cycle to rinse and dry dishes. This reduces temperature shock to delicate items and saves energy while providing optimum drying results. The HeatExchanger utilises a fully enclosed drying system which provides the most hygienically clean result possible by not drawing in air from outside the dishwasher.
