    It cleans and it is quiet.

    2 weeks in, it cleans and is quiet. I'm not amazed by the Zeolith drying, plastic often has moisture still on it, it is a bit better then the 15 year old Siemens device it replaced though. I'm not quite sure of the point of the red light, while it is quiet it is not so quiet that I can't hear it in operation, and if I want to find how long left I still need to open it up to look at the display. Installation did take the 2+ hours it suggested, however 1.5 hours of this was trying to understand the installation diagram! Bosch, why do you supply 10 user manuals in different languages but only one poorly laid out and insufficiently commented diagram for installation? For the help of others: The only difference between the two sides of the diagram is that one side is for one piece cupboard doors, and the other is where you want a fake door at the top. The rest is the same as far as I could work out. There is a metal sheet supplied that needs to be attached to the underside of the worktop. This is only needed for wood/chipboard as a moisture protector, granite and other non-porous worktops don't need it. Most of the fittings are inside in the middle basket but not all. Before you push the dishwasher into the cavity make sure you remove the rubber sheet that is on top that is used to go behind the kickboard. Doh! The maximum foot rise is 6cm so you will need to stack something underneath them if the gap underneath the units is large. I found the two wooden supports from the packing ideal for this. The front legs are stiff to adjust, particularly to start with. Have the right size spanner and room to wield it. Fitting the power, water and drain was easy. It is just a replacement of the existing connections. Fitting the cabinet door is not too difficult. Essentially use the template to measure/mark the gap between the top of the doors and the worktop on the surrounding units and then shift this on the door you want to fit. My tip would be to only drill 30-40% of the required fixings, leave the template in place and do a test fit. If it is OK, then drill the rest otherwise adjust template and redrill. Remember though it may be easier to adjust the surrounding doors rather than drill a lot of new holes in slightly different positions.

    Excellent dishwasher which actually does dry the pots

    Excellent dishwasher. I really like the cutlery rack being the flat tray rather than the traditional basket. The cutlery washes nicely and there is no loss of space on the bottom draw. The dishwasher is quiet with a neat light on the floor so everyone knows when it is doing its thing. The drying is superb! Even plastic items, which traditionally would be a bit drippy, are bone dry.

    Good quality

    Easy to use, low energy on the eco setting. Fairly expensive. I had my last one for 15 years so hopefully will work out to cheaper in the long run. The eco program runs for 4 1/2 hours, but the door automatically opens after about 2 hours for drying. Affectively, the washing cycle has finished though. The cutlery is a good idea but does remove height from the next tray which needs to be at its highest to fit my plates in. Just took some getting used to and adjusting where things go.

    Good Bosch Dishwasher

    This is a good dishwasher, which is quiet and effective. The short wash, one hour, gets the dishes very clean and dries well. The longer eco-wash is also effective but only for use overnight. It definitely saves electricity. Overall a good product if rather expensive.

    Very good eco mode

    Fitting was all pretty easy as integrated goes, strong leg jacks, nice worktop protector and great template for door holes. Only difficulty installing was there only being one foot in the middle at the back, making installation a bit longer. Once fitted very sturdy strong door action and useful app to set up most energy efficient programs for you. We bought to save energy and we’re concerned that the eco mode on all new dishwashers would be no good and just to get there rating, with this model so far however we have only used in eco with great results. We are a family of 4 and manage to fit the whole days washing up in most days and by the morning everything is absolutely clean and dry including plastics. The cutlery tray is amazing and the adjustable middle shelf height is also a great idea. There is a load of programs for intensive / extra dry / quiet etc but so far we’ve only needed eco. Overall although the most expensive dishwasher we’ve ever bought it’s is by far the best on performance, noise, energy, internal size, layout and ease of use: 5star

    mixed opinion.overall good

    love the quiet, the A rating and the organising space. Find the self-opening door and push fit door a bit annoying.

    Highly recommend

    Highly recommend this dishwasher. Although the connection to WiFi is not necessary in my opinion, it is a handy feature.

    Bosch smart dishwasher

    Very feature rich, lots of program options and consistently great results.
