Room and flexibility are the least you can expect with the SMS40C02GB, thanks to its 12 place setting capacity and innovative Vario basket system offering more capacity and greater flexibility. There are 4 foldable racks throughout the machine, and the top basket is height-adjustable when empty.

Along with a choice of 3 temperatures, programmes and special options in this machine include: Pre-rinse, Normal 65°C, Economy 50°C, Quick wash 45°C; and Half load.

ActiveWater hydraulics system
This A+ energy rated Bosch unit ensures that every single drop of water is used to maximum effect. The DosageAssist function dispenses detergent evenly over all your dishes, while multiple water protection prevents flooding and guarantees extra peace of mind.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 171 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bosch Dishwasher Does exactly what it says on the tin. The water inlet pipe is stiffer than the one on my old machine but other than that all is fine. Cleans dishes and saves me the effort! 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Dishwasher Bought this to replace previous slimline Bosch which had lasted 13 years. Happy so far and obviously holds a lot more than the previous one. Surprised at how long the middle programme takes to run. 24 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple to use product Really pleased with this washer. Simple to plumb in and easy to use. Get lots of crockery & utensils in it. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Very quiet Amazing cleaning process everything comes out sparkling even on a quick wash Does need salt and rinse aid as our water is hard even when using all in one tablets Eco program is quite long but very Eco friendly 11 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dishwasher Really like the different programs, easy to navigate and an excellent product. 26 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Heating Element Fault 6 weeks after the 2 year warranty expired, the dishwasher was part way into a cycle when the kitchen fuse tripped. After resetting the fuse and restarting the dishwasher it stopped showing error code 9 - the dreaded heating element fault! It appears that this is a common fault with this dishwasher and quite costly to repair (more than half the original purchase price). Very disappointed with Bosch - expected better reliability and will think twice before buying Bosch again. Full marks to John Lewis customer service who were extremely helpful and have made a contribution to a new dishwasher. 23 May 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Express delivery not available as advertised I ordered this dishwasher because of the advertised express delivery option only to find out that express delivery is not available in my area. Do I live in the outer islands of Scotland? - no I live in a reasonable sized town, 30 minutes from Wolverhampton and Stafford and only 10 minutes from Telford. Now I have to wait 10 days for delivery. Not impressed. A negative view about John Lewis service filed away for future consideration. I am now looking to probably cancel and purchase elsewhere. 19 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value This is one of the cheaper range of Bosch dishwashers , however it is proving to be well worth the money. The intererior racks etc are well positioned for stacking most crockery and pans. The standard programme cleanes and dries very well, even hard baked on food. My only gripe is that the door requires a bit of pulling and pushing to open and close, I am hoping that this loosens up with use. 28 April 2015
