Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 176 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value replacement Bought this to replace an AEG dishwasher. Always had Bosch in the past for all other appliances so hope this will be an improvement on the AEG. Easy to order from John Lewis and the delivery men were excellent in every way. However the machine came with a spray attachment which the booklet said could NOT be used with the model we had ordered! It also came with a strip of plastic with no information as to what this should be used for - we're still wondering! It did not come with a funnel for filling the salt dispenser as the instruction manual said it would. It works well on quickwash (29 minutes), everything comes out clean and shining and it dries fairly well on this. I use it in the day as we now have solar panels so it's free when it's bright which is a big plus. I would recommend this machine - it only has three programmes but I have only every used two in the past so this is no problem. It seems to hold more than the AEG although place setting numbers are the same. 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by VFM Excellent machine better than my last Bosch, overall no need to pay more money for more expensive machines 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great addition to our kitchen! I viewed this dishwasher on the John Lewis website, did the comparison's and bought it. I paid a little extra to have the old one taken away and this one installed. The John Lewis delivery guys were fantastic and the dishwasher is the same...Fantastic. 04 August 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dishwasher I would say this is the best dishwasher I have had. Its simple to use, very quiet and the dishes are sparkling clean even on the short setting. I am very pleased with this product. 14 July 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by New Bosch dish washer Installation did not go straight forward as new regulations seems more complicated than I had expected. In the end I asked a workman to install this dish washer. Machine itself takes longer than the previous Zanussi dish washer and a little noisier. 08 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased with it We have only had the machine for a couple of months but are very satisfied with it so far. We do most of our dishwashing on the quick 45degree program, which takes 44 minutes and everything comes out sparkling. It is very quiet compared to our old dishwasher, an added bonus 07 July 2015
