Rated 2 out of 5 by from 3 year design fault?Great for 3 years, almost to the day. Really liked this machine until it started tripping the RCD on the main fusebox. Seems to be a heat pump fault (heat pumps are >£100 to replace + labour). As others have very recently stated in their reviews... expect it to last about 3 years before you waste money fixing it. Something tells me this isn't coincidence... more like an intentional design fault. Think I'll have to get a Miele.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short lived machine with basic fault.Bought 3 years ago, now having problems. Cutting out and causing home electrics to fuse. Am told by expert technician that this machine has history of problems due to salt container cover allowing leakage onto operating module.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product does what it says on the tin!Although many of these types of appliances have too many user options that no-one uses, the Bosch Dishwasher gives timing options which seem to be the biggest requirement of users today. Better than that - the dishes come out clean! The cutlery basket can be a bit finicky and you have to be careful that dishes don't touch each other but on the whole, for the price and finish of the machine, I'm extremely pleased. It was also very easy to install and this was done without the help of plumbers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb results and design.After a lot of research I'm very glad I chose and bought this Bosch dishwasher. I've now used all of the four programmes, from half-load to eco and they all perform perfectly. The default eco setting is probably the one we'll use the majority of the time. It's very quiet in operation. Using the delayed start to begin the wash after we'd retired for the night, we couldn't hear a thing from upstairs in our small house. The quality of the construction is excellent.
