STINKS - do not buy

published

How did I miss the endless reviews about the toxic stench coming from the dishwasher? I have had breathing trouble and an endless headache since installing it. We have tried all of the suggestions to address but it is still terrible. The dishwasher is basically unuseable. The stench permeates through the house. The layout inside and cleaning ability are great, but there is no way anyone should consider buying one due to the toxic smell.

Purchased in March 2020.

So far so good, but customer service could be better

published

I purchased my dishwasher earlier this month. Installation was a little tricky (the installation guide resembles an ikea assembly manual) and took longer than expected. The machine washes well and is very quiet. However, my machine came with the rinse aid door warped. I have contacted the Bosch support via email and telephone and am yet to hear from anyone. If anyone from Bosch is watching this page, please contact me.

Does a wonderful job - but it stinks. Literally.

published

I was so excited when I bought this dishwasher. I'd never had one before and I wanted the best. I'd always thought Bosch an excellent brand, and it is. BUT the nasty plasticy smell it emits when open simply won't go away.
I bought this Bosch Super Silence 46dB in December 2019. It's now March 2020, and the smell is just as bad as ever.
I wish I'd read [name removed] great review below before I bought it.

Good hard working dishwasher. Very quiet operation. Cleans dishes and glasses well. Started using the delay start option to run in off peak to save power costs and it is great.

Fantastic and easy to use dishwasher.

published

Bosch is well known for it's brand but I used this website to decide whether or not to buy one and i'm glad I did. It is easy to use, easy function settings and you can't tell that it's on because it's relatively quiet. No complaints from me here!

Perfect dishwasher

published

I Have had this dishwasher since the start of the year i had a lg which lasted me about 6 years it was good and big inside until one of the components broke and i ended up buying a bosch dishwasher which i am very happy with i like that the racks are high and you can put plates in the bottom rack and it wont hit the water spray. also the vario speed which is good it cuts the time of the cycle in half and has amazing results!!
Overall i am happy with this dishwasher and would recommend it to others

Smelly dishwasher

published

Purchased a bosch dishwasher today anrac when we arrived home the back of our car had water all through it and the packaging of dishwasher all wet and leaking. Immediately called the store and told all Bosch dishwashers are tested before being shipped and all the same. This is great if you then empty the water back out. Ended up with foul smelling water through house after we thought it had finished leaking. Install instructions not in English and ended up with leftover parts. Not a good experience.

Rubbish

published

Waste water pump broken only after 7 months upon purchase. Not happy with the quality of the product and feel I have been ripped off. There is no option to return the product, instead I have to wait for a repairer to come out and I have no idea when that will be, as the information provided was very ambiguous.

Can't handle dirty dishes

published

Had this for nearly 2 years. Sick of the error message if even the smallest bit of food gets past the filter.
I must get the error message at least once a month, then I have to reach into the filthy dishwasher water to look for any food stuck in there. There's never anything substantial. Our old dishwasher, different brand, could handle anything you threw at it. We had it for 7 years and never had anything like the number of error messages we get with the Bosch.

best dishwasher

published

The first time I used this it was so quiet I didn't think it was running. I have to see the red light is on to know that it is running. It cleans well not over the top but I have no complaints . The best thing is how quiet it is.

Best Dishwasher I’ve ever owned!

published

After spending over $1000 each time I needed to replace my dishwasher, I thought I would get on here and give you all a great tip.
This is just the greatest! Family of 6 and I can honestly say that I have only ever used the Quick cycle and EVERYTHING cleans perfectly!
I also only use the cheap Shine tablets from Woolworths, so I’m a bit excited about this purchase! Hope this review saves you all from wasting more big dollars on yet another appliance that fails to perform! Nothing worse!

This is How Dish Washer Should Function

published

Bought Bosch Serie 4 SMS46KI02A fromGood Guys and this machine is living up to the expectations and does everything to precision and does everything the website & features say it does.

Very simple to Set it up, Very simple to use all its functionalities. There is nothing to complain about this product but all we need is a little extra length on the chord.

CLeans the most greasy utensils with ease, we have tried various dishwashing tablets but then this works best with FINISH Qunatum Clean

Replacement and love it

published

This dishwasher replaced my old favourite and I love it the racks are easily folded down for bigger items, it’s not too noisy and it cleans to sparkle! I never have any food residue it’s easy to set with multiple settings the cycles are longer than my previous one but it has a quick wash and by always adding rinse aid it can lessen time on all cycles I have a family of 5 and I run it once a day but you can set and forget it also has a lock so no little fingers can disturb it, it’s also very nice too look at and easy to clean, I recommend this dishwasher I’m very happy with it.

Can dishwasher model number SMS46GW01A connect to hot water source?

Bosch Home Appliances
Bosch H.Bosch Home Appliances

Hi Barry,
Thanks for the question regarding the Bosch SMS46GW01A.
All of our dishwashers are designed to be connected to cold water but can handle up to 60 degrees Celsius. The hotter the water input the higher the recommendation for rinsing your dishes as the initial rinse is supposed to be a cold rinse.
If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744 or visit https://www.bosch-home.com.au/productlist/dishwashers/freestanding-dishwashers/dishwasher-60-cm-wide/SMS46GW01A#/Tabs=section-technicalspecs/Togglebox=2107576045/Togglebox=-1527197176/.
