Q & As


Smeg DC122B Dishwasher, Black 4.1 5 12 12
Smeg Dreadful piece of kit. Doesn't dry properly - noisy - poor quality construction - flimsy shelves that don't accomodate cups properly. 11 May 2014
Don't be mislead by looks! I brought this dishwasher having already purchased a Smeg fridge and wanted to colour match in the kitchen. Although aesthetically pleasing I have had no end of problems with this machine. The problems started just after the warranty expired (coincidence??) Firstly the door mechanism broke which was an inexpensive repair. then the machine flooded the kitchen floor and now the heater and motor have broken. After speaking to the appliance repair man he stated that Smeg dishwashers are poorly made and very flimsy inside (he showed me the inside stripped down and I agree with his comment) For the price paid I am extremely disappointed with this product and with repair costs rising I am seeking to buy an alternative product with more internal space (I had difficulty loading dinner plates into the bottom tray) Consider alternative prior to purchasing this product. 24 September 2013
Don't be misled by this beautiful exterior! I was really looking forward to receiving our new dishwasher. It arrived in perfect condition, was placed exactly where I wanted it by the delivery men and looks absolutely beautiful in my kitchen...HOWEVER When it comes to the inside, it's absolutely tiny! I struggle to load up a few dinner plates because the bottom tray seems to be very low and the blade keeps knocking the plates unless you almost lie them vertically. Didn't have that problem with a previous dishwasher (which wasn't as expensive as this one!) I do think there is a design error with this dishwasher and that let's the whole rating down. I don't usually leave review, but felt I had to "warn" potential buyers. Like I said, it's stunning and washes well, but the rack arrangements aren't good at all, neither are they adjustable like you get with other dishwashers. 18 June 2013
Great value for money Good quality material, easy to operate, looks smart in the kitchen. 13 January 2013
Excellent buy Ordering and delivery were fast and efficient. The product itself is easy to use. The short wash is effective and the programmes are clear. It is much quieter than our previous dishwasher. I'm getting used to the colour, first black electrical item purchased apart from the oven. I just find John Lewis reliable and consistent to order from. 29 December 2012
