Q & As

Neff S51M53X1GB Integrated Dishwasher 4.1 5 46 46
Really disappointed Had previous model and pleased. This model is poorly designed. Cutlery basket takes out plates on both racks. Top shelf is so low on top setting that you can't place chopping boards, baking trays or larger plates on bottom section. So disappointed. 16 December 2014
Very pleased so far.... Our first Neff product which we bought from JL back in August, and so far we're very pleased with it. Pros - seems to wash, rinse and dry very well indeed - we've had no issues at all, albeit we do rinse heavily-soiled items before sticking them in the dishwasher. It's super-quiet too - almost difficult to know if it's on! Usually good service from JL which seems to have become our default retailer of choice for electrical goods in recent months. The £30 rebate for our old dishwasher was useful. Cons - yes, the installation instructions are difficult to understand if like me you decide to install the dishwasher yourself. Just a case of persevering with it and looking for the obvious. The only issue we've had using the dishwasher is with the interior trays; some of the 'teeth in the bottom tray are just too close together to hold some of our dinner plates, while the design of the upper tray seems unnecessarily complicated and 'contoured' (something that's been alluded to in a previous review) and doesn't make the best use of space in our experience. Overall though, we're very pleased with our purchase and the tray issues aside, wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. 10 December 2014
Silent versatile well made product As usual excellent service from JL delivery and fitting team. I must admit that some of the reviews were a little confusing particularly machine dimensions and cupboard door front. I confirm that if your kitchen units are a standard height 87.5mm then this machine will fit perfectly. The dishwasher is very quiet and the 29 minute cycle is sufficient for our needs. We do tend to rinse off food deposits prior to loading the machine. A LARGE improvement on our old machine. Adjustable racks a boon allowing large items to be loaded on lower tray. Water hardness adjustment useful too as we have a water softener. All in all One happy bunny. Thankyou JL. 30 November 2014
Really pleased with new dishwasher Really pleased cleans pots really well all different functions handy too 18 November 2014
Some issues with drying and the racking Delivery and installation by the John Lewis team took place as scheduled. However, a fair amount of water from the old machine spilled over the floor and carpet whilst they were removing it. Overall, the new machine is slightly disappointing and I probably got unduly lured by the £50 trade-in promotional offer. The display on the top of the door cannot be seen on my machine when closed, as it is covered by the kitchen worktop. So the timer countdown isn’t too helpful. The “auto” function does not tell you how long the wash will take, which is a bit annoying – it just gives a range of times in the manual. The large number of different washing programmes available makes it a bit “gimmicky”, without much material difference between them that I can see. The machine doesn’t dry particularly well; there is a function for having extra drying, but I have not tried it yet (my previous Bosch machine dried everything really well). The “spokes” on the lower tray are not really tall enough to put eg large mugs (they are only tall enough for holding in plates/pans). On the upper tray, the racks are too contoured, or too narrow to get larger mugs/wider glasses securely positioned. I was able to accommodate more dishes, etc in and stack them more efficiently in my old Bosch. The drawer for the washing tablet is very small; the compartment for the salt doesn’t have much of a screw turn. There is no filter included in the packaging to be able to pour in the salt – so keep you old one. On the plus side, the machine is indeed very quiet, with a discrete “beep” at the end when the wash is finished. 07 October 2014
Excellent product Wanted a quiet and quick wash dishwasher. This one is great. My husband installed it, he remarked that it seems more sturdy than our last one. Only use the short cycle which is 29 minutes. The other cycles are quite long (225, 245 and 315 minutes). Just ensure not to pack to tightly with the short cycle for best results. 04 October 2014
My new NEFF dishwasher Exceedingly quite, very good at washing with articles coming out gleaming and good price too. However programmes are long with the default programme being the ECO programme at 3h 15 mins and other programmes being over 2h's. Needs a bit of geting use to as my previous dishwasher's main programmes were 80-90 mins. But overall very happy and would be happy to buy again 30 September 2014
