Summary: Overall, an excellent machine but my biggest gripe is the piping that it came with. The cold water hose pipe was so stiff and non flexible that it was almost impossible to maneuver and attach to the pipes below the sink. After many failed attempts and lots of frustration, a new flexible hose had to be used.
Summary: This was to replace an old Hotpoint. We bought the Bosch name and wish we hadn't. There is a strange curved area on the top drawer that catches the cleaning tablets and therefore doesn't allow it to wash things properly. It doesn't have 4 wash programs. No.1 is a prewash cycle, no.2 is quick wash but unless you've hand washed things before they are still not properly clean when they come out, no.4 is the extremely long eco cycle leaving only no.3 the 2 1/4 hours normal...
Summary: This dishwasher is easy to load and very simple to use, with a small number of useful and easy-to-access programs and no unnecessarily complicated controls. The low-salt and low-rinse-aid indicators are very useful, as is the simple time-delay mechanism.
Summary: Very pleased with the machine, like previous Bosch appliances that I have purchased. However, can't understand the need for a 50C wash to take over 3 hours when a 45C only takes about half an hour. Surely an extra 5C should not require a 300% longer cycle time.
Summary: Very quiet and easy to use. Only downside is that the regular washing cycle at 50C takes over 3 hours. However, an EcoWash at 45C takes just over half an hour, and washes the dishes quite well.
