  • DosageAssist The DosageAssist ensures optimal cleaning results and a quieter wash. The detergent drops out the detergent dispenser and into a special tray on the top basket where it gets completely dissolved.
  • 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 for lifetime.
  • Automatic programmes Water usage, water temperature and rinse time are adjusted exactly to suit the level of soiling. This provides best results while saving water and energy.
    Automatic programmes
  • AquaSensor
    AquaSensor The AquaSensor regulates the water usage depending on the type and degree of soiling, using light beams to manage the rinse. Depending on remaining food particles, grease or detergent residues in the rinse, the rinsing process is assessed to evaluate whether it needs to be continued.
  • Heat Exchanger
    Heat Exchanger Dishwashers with heat exchangers treat precious glasses and porcelain with particular care and no risks. Water is pre-heated in the rinsing tank to avoid any temperature shocks.

  • 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.
  • IntensiveZone option
    IntensiveZone option The IntensiveZone option, which can be added to many programmes, ensures a higher spraying pressure and increases the temperature in the lower basket. Heavily soiled pots and pans are cleaned optimally whilst more delicate dishes can be placed in the upper basket.

  • Electronic delay timer
    Electronic delay timer With the time delay function you can pre-select the programme for the desired start time. This allows you to handle your appliance conveniently, at any time during the day, during work hours or at night. After the start of the programme a display indicates the precise remaining time.

  • VarioDrawer Plus
    VarioDrawer Plus The best ActiveWater dishwashers offer even more space inside: the drawer has practical recesses for large utensils like hand whisks or ladles. The drop-down sides make room for small items – and even espresso cups. Foldaway pins ensure that cutlery with particularly broad handles can also be accommodated. This third level dispenses with the need for a cutlery basket in the lower basket and makes the ActiveWater dishwashers amazingly spacious, holding up to 14 place settings.

  • Glass protection technology 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.

  • HalfLoad option

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooooo quiet!We replaced our previous Bosch dishwasher with this model as it was so quiet but with all the features of other models. The little more £'s we felt was very worth spending and found that Bosch were giving £70 cash back. Bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from extremely quiet and efficientOnly had a few days, but was bought to replace a far more expensive less than 10y/o Miele that developed a fault that was uneconomical to repair.... the DW is supplied with everything you need, outlet / inlet fixed and a loose mains cable (usual 3pin one end, and a specific plug the other), first time I have seen this on large white goods... it also comes supplied with various plastic strips which help with aesthetics if raised from the floor, small gaps at side etc between cabinets, or if freestanding in open plan.. also supplied is a protector that goes under your worktop to prevent steam damage.... they even supply a small pack of finish tabs to get you going one of the things I insisted on was a cutlery drawer, which this Bosch has, in fact the plus version supplied is great, the two edges drop to allow smaller items to be washed... (like spouts from Tassimo etc), apparently they will take espresso cups... won't say this drawer is better or worst than my previous washer, but certainly different... the main shelf has plenty of folding tines and other features, that will allow you to place a multitude of different things in there, from pots & pans, plates and even tall stemmed glasses due to the special holder Centre shelf again is very versatile with folding tines, shelves etc... if I was to make a criticism it would be the fold-able shelves on the right do not allow mugs to be placed tight against the edge, causing them to hang onto the next row, plenty room for them elsewhere though... the shelf has 3 positions to allow larger items to be placed either below or above, on the centre setting I can fit a tall Costa Latte glass to the left without it fouling the top drawer, this also allows a dinner plate to be washed in the lower shelf (mine are just over 26cm, and just fit)... although if only using normal mugs, the centre shelf could be raised to allow larger platters etc...... the centre shelf can be removed, and a separate, supplied spray head easily fitted instead, this allows you to wash extra large items as worktop savers, glass chopping boards etc control panel is pretty straight forward and easy, nice, bright red LEDs illuminate buttons pushed and it has a countdown timer... 1 button push for the main programmes, with additional extras available via other buttons for lower wash times (obviously this compromises energy saving), intensive washing on lower basket only, half load if only washing a few items... etc etc, more info on Bosch site rated at 38 decibals, this machine is extremely quiet, the only really noticable noise is due to my set up, the gurgling when water pumped out, but this is even reduced from previous machine as it uses less water I have read other reviews for this and similar machines with a few complaints, 1 being the amount of time it takes to do an eco wash, this is simply due to environmental issues, older DWs used to throw buckets of water in, soak everything and then rinse, modern, Eco machines use far less, thus requiring more time to soak and agitate the dirt away from your crockery.. but with modern motors using less electricity, time is a trade off for money saving.... the other complaint is the lack of drying, again, modern machines strive to save money, this machine has an extra dry button if you find things are still overly wet, usually plastics / non stick items are the culprits.... however, if you read the manual ( it is worth it), it tells you how to switch off eco drying and activate intense within the programming menu... so far I have been happy with normal results, with the only thing wet being th top of a couple of crafters mugs that have a dishing effect on the base, thus causing water to pool... and the very odd spot of water on a knife or spoon... but it is definitely no worst at drying than my previous model... in fact, if used in Eco mode, on the Eco 50 programme at the end of the cycle the door pops open, this allows steam to escape and enhances drying without adding extra heat... this is why they supply the worktop protector Overall I am pleased with the machine, got it at a good price with a high street seller having a £30 off promo, as well as Boschs own £70 cashback promo, making the machine only slightly dearer than lesser makes... so far I would highly recommend, and that is after replacing a premium model that cost me a lot more
