Bosch SMS65E32GB Freestanding Dishwasher, White

Product information

A generous 13 place settings capacity and a large range of programmes and settings make the Bosch SMS65E32GB dishwasher a great choice for a family, both in size and economy.

Thanks to the ActiveWater hydraulic water system, this dishwasher uses astonishingly little water - just 6 litres per cycle - and every single drop is used to its maximum potential. Precision engineering has resulted in a ServoLock door on this unit, which allows the door to close virtually by itself and with minimum effort on your part. Alternating spray arms make sure your dishes are well cleaned.

The SMS65E32GB offers a range of programmes and special options, including:

  • Intensive 70°C cycle to cut through and clean heavily soiled pots and pans
  • Delicate 40°C for your champagne flutes and delicate crockery
  • Intensive Zone special option vigorously washes pots and pans in one zone while your crockery is safely washed as usual in another
  • Speed Perfect option for when you need your dishes a little quicker
  • Half Load for those quieter days
  • Extra Dry option

The Bosch SMS65E32GB runs extremely quietly at just 44dB and features a 1-to-24-hour time delay so you can set it to run just when it suits you. And if you run this machine at night, the integration of anti flood water protection system gives you extra peace of mind, automatically cutting off the water supply if leakage or flooding occurs.

The upper basket features 6 foldable plate racks and is height-adjustable, even when fully loaded. The bottom basket has 4 foldable plate racks and a handy glass rack allowing you to load up all of your pots, pans and glasses with ease. This appliance also includes a large item spray head that can be utilised for cleaning your oven shelves or barbecue grill.

Bosch guarantees that if an appliance is discontinued, its major components will be available for at least 10 years afterwards in the event of a part needing replacement.

Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by very very quiet The dishwasher is so quiet that it is possible now to be able to hear each other in the kitchen or listen to he radio while the dishwasher works. I love the fact that you can move the cutlery tray around so that different size dishes can be placed. works very well. 23 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Would have been 5 stars, let down by manuals. The machine runs very quietly in my opinion. I've done one Eco wash which seemed to work well. I do wonder about whether all bugs are killed when using such low temperatures but I suppose if it's clean any bugs have been washed away (?). Some people say it is a bit noisy but it's quiet compared to my old Hotpoint. I like the controls and display. I would suggest that the text on buttons Intensive, Auto and Eco should be right justified to show they are linked to the adjacent LEDs. Similarly Delicate, Turbospeed and Prerinse should be left justified. The installation manual was poor. Written instructions are needed, the diagrams supplementing the text. The baking sheet spray head should be detailed at the start of the manual, not the end. It took me ages to find out what the part was. Most people will have given up before they reach the end of the manual. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lovely machine Delighted with this. It is an excellent, easy-to use, super-efficient machine. I had one previously and loved it This new one is even better. 26 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Machine but very complicated instructions manual I am a Bosch convert for Home Appliances and I value the recent dishwasher purchase. However, my biggest concern is that the instruction manual for various programs is not designed for a 65 year old housewife. I have found it too complicated and am not able to follow the instructions? 05 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product I purchased this dishwasher as a replacement for my 12 year old Bosch which died with a sudden bang. I researched online and watched the videos and bought this as it ticked all the boxes. I am very pleased with my choice. It's very quiet and should be more energy efficient than my old one. All my kitchen appliances are Bosch and have been very reliable. I particularly like the basket configuration and the fact that the cutlery basket slides to move position. Looking forward to many years of sparkling dishes. 28 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great alround Very flexible organisation of interior to accomodate even the most awkward items, including backing sheets. I also find the noise acceptable; one only hears the water jets and I would be worried if they wouldn't make any noise. As for the energy/water usage (another reason for buying this machine) it is still early to tell - however, for the timing I accept the manufacturer's claim. 22 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product A very good machine, it replaced a 12 year old Bosch. The convenience and easy operation of this machine is as expected from a Bosch product. Buy with confidence, John Lewis had the best price and delivery on time and efficient, as usual. 16 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Very very quiet machine. All the quality you would expect from bosch 31 March 2015
