  • ActiveWater technology This innovative rinsing technology maximises efficiency for excellent cleaning results. The water and energy is saved through targetted water distribution, optimised filter technology, faster heating and higher pump performance for increased water circulation.
  • AquaStop
    AquaStop The AquaStop 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
    LoadSensor The load weight is detected by a rotary speed sensor which recognizes the water level. For bigger loads, more water is needed to soak the dishes and the water level decreases. In that case more water is added. For smaller loads, less water is needed for rinsing. The load sensor provides for optimal water usage even for half loads or partial loads, saving water and electricity.
  • AquaSensor™ The AquaSensor™ helps you save even 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.

Top of page
  • Automatic programs Water usage, water temperature and rinse time are adjusted exactly to suit the level of soiling. This provides best results while making the most of saving water and energy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good unit, more flexible top trayWe replaced a kleenmaid unit with the bosch - the kleenmaid was a rebadged bosch about 10 years old, so good service from it. The new unit has a stainless finish with a slight gold/brass tint - wasn't expecting that...but not a big problem in white light, a little off-putting in yellow light. The unit itself goes well - we have a dog that feels the bottom rack is put there for her desert, so knives go into the cutlery box blade first and don't wash that well - more our problem than the bosch however. The top rack has more support for glasswear and we get better stacking as a result, the bottom rack is tight for large plates but we can get a dinner for 6 in with a little thought on top of the plates for the day, so no real complaints. It is a good machine for the price and based on the previous unit will give good reliability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent except for the promoted extrasThe dishwasher is excellent! We chose this model because it is rated number 1 by Choice. It has lived up to all expectations. However, we suffered trying to get the promoted $100 of "Finish" products. We have since received the promoted products, but it was time consuming and difficult to make our claim. I suspect many purchasers are not even aware of their entitlement. The process is "hidden" so it is not easy to claim. Problems finding the claim website etc. The numbers and codes required are not specific. For example Z-nur is serial number,,,,why not state Z-nur? Then the computer rejected our serial number stating it was used before. The promotion claim took hours. It was almost not worth the $100 reward. Finally it is all done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning wash!I've had this dishwasher for a little over 5 months now and it works a breeze each time. It looks great in our newly renovated kitchen and is so easy to use, that my kids love to help by stacking the dishes in the easy pullout & nicely spaced tray!
