  • 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.
  • Time Delay
    Time Delay With the time delay function, you can pre-select the desired start time. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and quietThis one was bought for our daughter after we bought one in February this year. Unless we are washing pots,we use the 29 minute cycle which works perfectly. It is so quiet,we put our ear to it sometimes to make sure it is going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quieter than a mouseI recently upgraded to a Bosch dishwasher and it was a fantastic decision. It is amazingly quiet and works effectively every time. I don't even have to rinse anything - it comes out perfectly clean, so you can imagine how happy this has made me and the time it saves each night. The other feature I love about this machine is the express wash option which has been a lifesaver at some family luncheons with a lot of mess!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not LastI bought this dishwasher 3 years ago and it has just started to trip our safety switch. It has a problem with heating element and possible main board. Not worth the repair as parts and labour cost more than the dishwasher. It also does not wash well, we constantly took out plates and cups with food/grime still on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Capacity.Six months ago my Husband & I moved into our brand new home that we built. This did not come with a dishwasher. As disappointed as it was. I was on a mission to find one that fit the big empty space. As this was my first i read all the reviews i could find on all of the dishwashers i could find. I wanted something that i could fit the lot in. Then out popped the BOSCH. I new it as soon as i saw it, Large capacity, stainless steel finish, adjustable & easy slide racks, most of all really quiet and it drys the dishes excellent. Yes i can fit the lot in it, glasses, pots, everything! it's great. It gets used everyday and is still going strong. I have not had any issues at all. Best choice ever.
