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 16 reviewers.
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
Rated 4 out of 5 by great dishwasher: recommended replaced a previous Bosch model (which started leaking after 8 years) with this model. Quiet operation but has an annoying beep that repeats several times to let you know it has finished - would prefer an option to switch this off! Bought from John Lewis because of competitive price, free 2 year warranty and they took away the old one free of charge. Definitely seems to be more space in this model. Having a top rack for cutlery means some of our taller glasses no longer fit in the second rack - need to check if this rack is adjustable. Still getting used to not having a basket for cutlery: this model has a top rack and you have to space it all out properly in the individual slots or items such as spoons move whilst being washed and can be full of water/food remnants at the end of a cycle so need washing again. The basket option is preferred by (lazy) family - good job I kept it from the old model! Overall though, quite happy with this model :) 19 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Rolls Royce of dishwashers Having got over initial problems when we found a part missing, we are delighted with our recent purchase of this model. This is our 4th Bosch dishwasher and it is far superior to our previous models and worth every penny of the extra cost. It is extremely quiet in operation, easy to load and, best of all, everything is sparkling when it comes out. One great improvement on previous models is the strength of the plate racks at the bottom. They are much sturdier than previously and the plates stay in position instead of rolling over to the other side. Thoroughly recommended. 12 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best dishwasher yet We are so pleased with this dishwasher. The controls are very user friendly, it cleans perfectly and is very quiet also. I would recommend 11 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Even better than expected After much research, including the Which? report saying they could find nothing negative about this model of dishwasher, we found John Lewis selling it at a great price. The hardest part of the installation was changing the menu from German to English which needs to be done first! There are a wide variety of programmes all of which clearly show progress on the front panel as well as what you have selected. It is very quiet in operation which makes the 'finished' buzzer a useful alert. With care you can really stack a lot of dishes and cutlery and I have no complaints about the cleaning ability. Cannot be beaten at the price! 20 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Dishwasher in every way. Bought this wonderful dishwasher 2 months ago but have waited until now so as to form an honest opinion regarding all aspects of the machine. I personally can not fault it as it does everything I would like it to do with excellent results. Would I recommend it? Yes, without doubt. 14 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic, worth every penny! When we bought this I though it might be a bit expensive, as I thought all dishwashers were very alike. I was wrong! This dishwasher is worth every penny. It washes efficiently, has loads of space inside as the plate racks can all be folded flat when not required and the moveable top drawer allows you to maximise the space. It is so quiet I find myself checking I've turned it on. It is easy to use and has a good range of programs, I have found that the auto settings can wash a lot faster than the display states at the start of the wash as the sensors detect how dirty the dishes are and change the wash to suit, so if they are not too greasy it is a faster wash. The eco setting takes a while (over 3 hours), but since it is so quiet it isn't a problem. 03 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product I have only had this dishwasher a few days, but am very pleased with it so far. It is incredibly quiet, which is useful to me as I do not have a door between the kitchen and living room. Loading the cutlery tray is a skill I am still developing, and am finding that sorting as I load makes it very quick and easy to unload and put away. The extra space created by not having a cutlery basket makes it much easier to load awkward shaped bowls and pans. 06 May 2014
