Bosch SMS69L32GB Freestanding Dishwasher, White

Product information

With an A+ energy rating and two A ratings for washing and drying, the Bosch SMS69L32GB dishwasher will be welcomed into any home.

This Bosch appliance runs almost silently at just 38dB and features a time delay so you can set if off after midnight to take advantage of lower energy costs. And when running at night, the integration of Aquastop technology gives you extra peace of mind, automatically cutting off the water supply if leakage or flooding occurs.

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. A child lock protects from scalding.

Thanks to the ActiveWater hydraulic water system, this dishwasher uses just 9.5 litres of water per wash, and every single drop is used to the maximum. The SMS69L32GB has 6 programmes including 3 automatic - auto 65-75°C, auto 45-65°C, auto 35-45°C and 4 special options including intensive zone, extra dry, hygiene plus and Variospeed plus.

The upper basket is height-adjustable, even when fully loaded, and the SMS69L32GB features a removable VarioflexPlus basket as a more flexible alternative to a cutlery basket, allowing you to effortlessly unload cutlery. With 3 different loading heights, and 12 foldable racks and shelves throughout the machine, a large variety of dishes can easily be accommodated. This appliance also features a glass protection system for perfectly clean glasses. A TFT text display and LED salt and rinse aid refil indicators keep you updated at all times.

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 4.8 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality comes at a price This is Which rated. Its is very spacious with a flat tray for cutlery instead of the usual baskets. The sound proofing rubber strips around the base are not the simplest to fit but overall its a very good product and best of all - the wife chose and likes it. 02 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dishwasher Bliss This particular machine is a tad on the pricey side, but absolutely worth every penny. It’s very difficult to argue with German engineering of this quality, and this is an example of one of their best. Talk about silent operation! Were it not for the front information screen, you’d be convinced that there was no life in the box. The eco-setting is very useful and attractive from a budgetary point of view. It may take nearly 3½ hours to complete the eco-setting, but switched on last thing at night (and it automatically switches off when complete)…what more can you ask for? There are a very wide range of wash cycles, including for those ‘busy types’ amongst us, and enough space within the machine to park a family car (the cutlery tray is a great space saving idea) The dish washing performance is excellent, and were it not illegal, I’d put kids, cats & dogs through a cycle, knowing that they’d all come out squeaky clean. I cannot recommend this dishwasher enough. 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silent but deadly on the grease This is a strong and sturdy dishwasher, easy to use with a top cutlery shelf which makes cleaning the cutlery very easy. The shelves can be adjusted, you can easily fix the push button settings to suit what you want. It is also very silent, tells you on the front dial where it is in the programme and switches itself off when finished. All it needs to do now is fill itself and it would be amazing. 07 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silence is golden At last clean dishes cutlery etc even does grubby pans where before with my old D.W I often had to redo them in the sink & with no discernible noise a 5 star machine. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super machine I've not had such an upmarket machine as this and am delighted with the extra flexibility. The drawer for cutlery seems to make everything cleaner. I can put 12 wine glasses in without any difficulty. The fold down racks give more options. The machine is very quiet and I like knowing how long the programme takes. I'm very happy. 24 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good upgrade. Useful adaptable racks into which the largest dinner plates fit. Useful diplay showing time to go and the process in progress. A quiet and efficient machine. 12 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleased with the dishwasher This machine has been a success. It is very quiet, has a good range of programmes including a Quick Wash and does a good job of cleaning. It does not have a drying fan so compared with our previous machine there are more drops of water remaining when unloading but on the plus side there is no stream of damp air venting into the kitchen. 22 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth the extra money Our initial wash left items much less dry than our twenty five year old dishwasher so we again read the instructions and noticed that with some detergent tablets a rinse aid is needed. We therefore topped up the machine with rinse aid and this completely solved the problem. We are now absolutely delighted with this model especially as it cleans and dries so well using the eco setting. The panel on the front of the machine which indicates each stage of the washing and drying process is very useful as this machine is so quiet that without it, it would be difficult to know when it has finished. We are completely satisfied. We found the John Lewis delivery and connection service excellent as usual 06 December 2014
