  • 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.

  • TFT display The multicoloured TFT display provides information quickly. With pictures and easily legible type, it shows what cycles and options were selected, the dishwashing progress, time remaining, and much more. Handy instructions guide users through cycles and offer useful information on the best use of the dishwasher, and on saving water and energy. In addition, the display shows the salt and rinse aid levels.
  • 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.

  • Child lock on door A child-proof door lock prevents the door from being opened and the programme being altered during the cycle. This prevents injuries caused by hot steam and accidental adjustments to the programme 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.

  • SuperSilence 40-45 dB
    SuperSilence 40-45 dB The electronically operated engine and many noise reduction measures, secure the exceptionally quiet operation of our SuperSilence dishwashers. Advantageous for eat-in kitchen or open areas.
    SuperSilence 40-45 dB
  • HygienePlus option
    HygienePlus option HygienePlus is a new option that can be activated in many programmes, and guarantees maximum hygiene thanks to antibacterial cleaning. This effect is achieved by a higher temperature level of up to 70°C during rinsing, sustained for approximately 10 minutes. HygienePlus is therefore ideal for people with high hygiene standards, for instance in households with small children or allergy sufferers.

  • ActiveWater technology
    ActiveWater technology This innovative rinsing technology maximises efficiency and ensures environmentally friendly rinsing for excellent cleaning results. The water and energy is saved through targeted water distribution, optimised filter technology, faster heating and higher pump performance for increased water circulation.

  • Zeolith® technology Thanks to the multi-award-winning Zeolith® technology, the opportunity to save energy saving is now even better, with brilliant drying results. The drying process uses very little energy and the power usage is reduced considerably: lowest energy consumption in the best energy efficiency class A+++ or even 10% less. The secret for this energy saving is the natural mineral Zeolith. It is regenerated after every wash cycle, lasts for the life of the dishwasher and never needs to be replaced.
  • HalfLoad option
    HalfLoad option Sometimes you can’t wait for the dishwasher to be full before you need to clean your dishes. With the HalfLoad option this is not a problem because it is an ideal cycle for washing fewer dishes. That’s how you do not only save water but also save time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Same as last Bosch, but more refined.This new Bosch SMS88TW02G dishwasher is replacing our previous SMS69L22GB purchased in 2011 (failed when 6 years old; stopped heating the water. Was looking at £140ish on the motor/element unit + labour (DIY replacement videos on YouTube put me off and I am usually a fix it myselfer), so decided to replace the dishwasher). Installation was exactly the same as the old unit (running on cold water supply). Instructions for this new unit says it can take a hot feed, but research on the internet swayed me from doing this due to potential issues with very hot water when pre-rinsing and also a possible risk of damage to internal components. Internally it is near identical, but the racks have some nice new features whereby you can fold alternate sets of 'prongs' on the bottom and top trays to accommodate different sized items. This is a definite plus for some school lunch boxes we have. There is also the 'emotion light' that comes on when you open the door (turns off after 1hr). This constantly amuses me as I'd call it a 'mood light' and it doesn't adapt to my emotions :-) To be honest we never found the inside of the old dishwasher a dark and foreboding place, but LEDs on things are always good, right? Overall it is pretty much the same to use. The external front information panel is a different design, but does the same job. Having the estimated time when it will finish is 'nice' (previously it told you how long to go), but I guess this is another clock to adjust for BST! There are more cleaning programs & options, most of which we will not use. The 'Auto 45-65 degrees' program + the 'Vario speed' option is our go-to program, with addition of 'Intensive zone' for burnt-on oven dishes. Having the little bar displays of relative water & energy consumption is useful as it makes you think twice about what options you use when. One daft new feature that caught me out is the control panel buttons: The 'on/off' and 'start' buttons have to be pressed for slightly longer than all the other buttons. This was not the same on our old unit and for a while I thought the 'start' button was broken! The unit appears to clean slightly better than the old one (using same Finish Quantum tablets). The only negative is that it is slightly louder in operation, but not significantly so. We turn it on, is washes dishes, glasses etc., they all come out clean and streak free, life goes on. This is an expensive dishwasher, but it is quiet, cleans well, has good energy rating and fancy bells & whistles. I just hope this one lasts at least the 6 years of the previous one. James

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The silent one.Purchased this dishwasher to replace another make. The dishwasher is solidly built and well designed. The cutlery shelf is well thought out and adjustable to fit in various sizes of utensils and ensures everything is cleaned to perfection. The middle shelf has three height positions and can be raised or lowered accordingly to suit the size of items being loaded. The plate racks in the bottom shelf can all be laid flat if needed to accommodate large items. The wheels on the bottom shelf are wide and flanged and the bottom shelf has not come off when moved in or out onto the door as experienced on our previous one. The tablet is dropped into its own compartment from the door and not between the plates in the bottom. It is really easy to set the wash programs and options with a display between the touch panels on top of the door. It has a display on the front of the door that alternates between the progress of the wash and the time it will finish. The reason for the display is so you know it is working because it is so quiet in operation. The zeolith drying is the best drying we have had on a dishwasher. This dishwasher is the best we have used and although higher priced than others we have had we feel the price is justified in build, design, ease of use and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ExcellentI bought this dw a week ago to replace an old Bosch (16 yrs). It does so much more. Glass & dirty pans come out gleaming. All my dishes, tableware & cutlery fit (including 28cm dinner plates) - have not experienced the problems of previous reviewer. It is very "techie", but easy to operate. Touch panel that responds to light touch - so silent, that difficult to know whether it is working; no prob, the front panel identifies the progress of the programme! Hope this dw lasts as long as the last one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic dishwasherThis is the best dishwasher I have had. Lots of loading options and programs to suit everyone. Sleek looking inside and out. Thoroughly recommend

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't waste your moneyI bought this nearly 3 weeks ago and it's all style over substance. It cleans well enough with lots of flashing lights and noises but in reality you can't get much in it. I haven't found a rack yet that can take a standard sized dinner plate. It's got more options of layout and drop down racks and trays than you can think of but they get in the way of actually loading your dishwasher with dirty crockery. Take a tip from me, save yourself £500 and but the £256 model as you will wash more dishes in it.
