Highlights

Convenience

Height-adjustable up to 5 cm at 3 levels even with a fully loaded top basket

Thanks to the triple Rackmatic system, the height of the top basket can easily be adjusted by up to 5 cm. And you can do this when it's fully loaded. That means even more adjustment options and thus maximum flexibility.

Automatic programmes

Ensure the optimum cleaning performance automatically. Water usage, the water temperature and the rinsing time are adjusted exactly to the level of soiling, providing the best results while saving water and energy.

Sustainablity

Rinses three times faster with optimum cleaning and drying results with VarioSpeed Plus.

Use the VarioSpeed Plus option to wash and dry a full load of dishes perfectly clean in the shortest of time. Rinse time is reduced at the push of a button by up to 66% with the usual high cleaning efficiency. Simply activate the VarioSpeed Plus option when you need dishes fast, e.g. at family celebrations or birthday parties.

Heat Exchanger: always the right temperature for optimal dish care.

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.

Perfect cleaning results without wasting a drop of water.

AquaSensor: Stain detection for brilliantly clean dishes.

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 determine whether it needs to be continued.

Resource-saving water management: optimal cleaning at low water consumption.

Resource-saving water management with intelligent water usage achieves minimal consumption per wash cycle: for example the ActiveWater Eco dishwasher uses only 6.5 litres of water in the standard programme with optimised hygienic cleaning.

Health

HygienePlus option: Rinsing with higher temperatures for highest hygienic performance.

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.

Child lock on door prevents unintended door opening during rinsing.

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

Glass protection for gentle care of your glasses and delicate crockery. Because soft water causes glass corrosion, Bosch dishwashers with glass protection regulate the water hardness. This is how we optimise the protection of valuable glasses and delicate china with special care requirements.

Performance

Easy pre-select programme start for the desired start time.

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.

Load sensor:

Load sensor:

Thanks to the load sensor, you can save energy when washing fewer dishes. Automatically saves water and energy when washing fewer dishes. The load weight is measured by a rotary speed sensor, which detects 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.

EcoSilence DriveTM: powerful, durable, quiet and efficient.

To increase our cleaning efficiency we have developed the economical EcoSilence DriveTM. It is exceptionally quiet, efficient and guarantees low electricity consumption. The EcoSilence DriveTM works without brushes, is ultra silent and top results are automatically guaranteed.

ActiveWater technology: less water, less energy, more performance.

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.

Glass 40 °C programme

The Glass 40 °C programme gently cleans glasses like high-quality crystal while providing optimal drying and achieving a brilliant shine. This is made possible by lowering the temperature, adjusting the rinse agent’s temperature and extending the drying time. Shiny glasses and residue-free drying are clear proof of a brilliant and gentle cleaning result.
