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
  • TurboSpeed 20 minute wash
  • 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 3.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet dishwasher with an excellent wash and great flexibility for stacking dishes and pots and pans. This dishwasher ticked all the boxes for us.We have tried quite a few of the dishwashing options on it in the last month. The auto option is our main one, but we also like the vario speed as it only takes one hour twenty four minutes, and does a good job.The machine is 44db, very quiet, and washes and dries efficiently. Only some of the plastic spatulas remain with a few water drops on them, and there is an extra drying programme to cope with this. We bought this machine as a successor to our 13 year old Bosch Logixx, and I am very pleased with the folding racks and the cutlery backet which slides along, to make the most of the space at the bottom of the machine. Ther is an intensive option, but we haven't used it as it washes our oven pans well on the auto programme. I would recommend this machine. . Tall plates fit easily into it, and the top rack can be moved easily if you need more room. The only programme which seems a little strange is the Turbo Speed one, where you heat up the empty machine for 25 mts, then load it and it has several quick rinse cycles. You can't use dishwasher tablets with this programme, only powder detergents. As I always put the dishes in after a meal, I haven't used this option.Additional options are a half load, extra drying , hygiene and the express wash/speed. Finally, it only uses 6ltres of water which is much less than other machines. 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet and efficient Very pleased with this dishwasher in every aspect. Economical with water, easy to select programmes, and we can hardly hear it when it is operating. 11 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product. I have had this dishwasher for about a month. I've used it many times. It's very quiet. On Eco setting it takes a long time but the cleaning results are brilliant. I was cautious about the drying of the products on Eco cycle but I am very pleased with the results. I tend to leave the items inside and door closed for a few hours after the cycle has finished. Cups will never dry at the bottom due to the dimple. 24 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet efficiency. Very pleased with this purchase. It replaced a 27 year old AEG which had done sterling service but used a lot of water and was now failing to remove tea stains from our mugs. The Bosch is brilliant - super quiet and all dishes come out really clean and dry. So far have only used the auto programme but this does all we could wish for. Baskets are very easily adaptable to take any size of dish, saucepans etc. would thoroughly recommend this product. 02 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what is says on the box! Bought this to replace an 18 year old BOSCH dishwasher that recently died. Had originally settled on a different BOSCH model but was advised that the stainless steel interior of this model would be better for my hard water area. It is virtually silent in operation; with options that will save time and water, I have used a variety of programme options and I'm yet to be disappointed by the results. An excellent purchase and worthy successor to my previous machine. 29 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by An excellent dishwasher.... It cleans most things really well but is not brilliant on the stains in my cast iron pans (Not supposed to put them in dishwashers anyway!!) The eco wash is excellent you can stack up a days worth and wash overnight as the machine is incredibly quiet. and the high speed wash plus turbo dry is really good if you have a lot of people to feed and are afraid of running out of plates I cannot tell you much about long term use as I have only had it a short while but it looks good and works well so far 22 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed. We bought this because it used less water and electricity. What it didn't say is how long the programmes runs for, Eco 50degrees runs for 3hrs 5mins. Yes you can reduce this by using vario speed the time is reduced to 1hr 15min. The crockery and cutlery are still damp when the programme finishes, yes, you can push a button for extra heat. All this adds up to using more water and more electricity so buying an eco friendly product costing more than a conventional Bosch dishwasher means we have wasted our money. The layout is poor the top basket, for cups and mugs the space isn't wide enough. the bottom basket there isn't enough support, the spaces between the basket are too wide so you have to be careful pan handles don't hang down and restrict the spray arm. John Lewis were excellent ordering and delivery went without a hitch. Our only complaint is no mention of the running times on their website. Plus they did offer to take it back but as we were going away this wasn't an option so we are stuck with it! 06 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Handy and efficient Bought as replacement for our old dishwasher, dishes are sparkling, clean and reasonably dry. We are happy with this purchase. 08 April 2014
