Product information

A generous 13 place settings capacity and a large range of programmes and settings make the Bosch SMS65E38GB 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.

The SMS65E38GB has a 70°C intensive cycle to cut through and clean heavily soiled pots and pans, and if you are still looking for more speed, a TurboSpeed quick wash will clean lightly soiled items in just 20 minutes.

The Bosch SMS65E38GB runs extremely quietly at just 44dB and features a timer 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 is height-adjustable, even when fully loaded, and the SMS65E38GB features a removable VarioFlexPlus basket as a more flexible alternative to a cutlery basket, allowing you to effortlessly unload cutlery.

With three different loading heights, and 10 foldable racks throughout the machine, a large variety of dishes can easily be accommodated. This appliance also includes a large item spray head that can be utilised for getting your oven shelves or barbecue grill clean.

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.

  • Excellent A++ energy rating
  • Aquamix - Glass protection and water softening system for optimal results
  • VarioFlexPlus basket system makes unloading cutlery easy
  • Highly efficient water usage with the ActiveWater system

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by GOOD BUY Purchased to replace same model which was approximately 15 years old. Disappointed in door finish as not same "silver" look as bottom panel and operating panel. Previous model was "same silver" all over. Not sure it holds as many dishes/utensils as previous model. However, it is very quiet and easy to operate and cleans dishes very well. Various washing and drying options are very useful. Will be interesting to see if this model lasts as long as previous. As on other occasions, we plumbed in machine ourselves and found the instructions a little confusing. 05 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by fabulous quiet dishwasher A dishwasher that actually washes and dries and at the end of running it turns itself off. Plastic gets washed and dried and no water marks left behind, cutlery comes out cleans - does everything a dishwasher should and its just so quiet i can have it running whilst I'm in the same room!! love it!! Brilliant Bosch!! Thanks John Lewis... 14 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect We bought this approximately 12 months ago after taking advantage of moving home to have a reason to get rid of our previous dishwasher, which I am pretty sure was designed by the devil himself. After over a year I am happy to say this has been as consistently fantastic as first impressions. It has a variety of programmes but all practical and used by us on a regular basis. Rather than have the option of dozens of programmes that you'll never use via a control panel that may require some NASA training, this is designed with an average person, average household in mind. The control panel is extremely straightforward which was one of the many reasons we chose it. We barely needed to open the instruction manual. My personal favourite is the intensive mode. As a frequent baker I often have tins and dishes that have baked in food. None of them have been too much for the machine. The eco mode certainly reduces the amount of water being used and cleans your averagely dirty load brilliantly. Regardless of which programme you choose the dishes come out spotless and dry! From time to time we got some plastic items with a bit of moisture still on them but that was mostly rectified by a specific rinse aid. It is very easy to keep clean. Not something we thought would be relevant but after comparing it to our previous dishwasher which I thought was the norm with it's plethora of nooks and crannies, this is very streamline with nothing but a quick wipedown of the door edges needed very rarely. For me one of the biggest surprises was how quiet it is. It wasn't something we looked for but having what we do now, it turns out its more important than we thought. Its so quiet you forget it's on. I've accidentally opened the door a few times thinking it was turned off such is its quietness. A year on and if the unthinkable was to happen and we had to replace it for any reason, I'd get the exact same one again in a heartbeat. 14 December 2013
