    Whisper quiet operation, an incredibly fast express cycle, and an easy-to-use interface are just some of the reasons why this dishwasher is popular with our customers. Bosch is a brand synonymous with quality, and you can rely on this dishwasher to deliver fantastic results.

    A dishwasher is an excellent investment because it gives you more free time. And if you have a growing family it's almost a necessity. This Bosch dishwasher can hold a lot, and the VarioFlex® baskets can be adjusted to accommodate large pots and pans. Plus there are 6 wash programs to choose from, which means you can wash anything from fine crystal glasses through to greasy frypans. Every time you use it, you can expect your dishes to come out looking good as new.

    This is also a very energy and water efficient machine, which makes it an environmentally-friendly choice. Another water-saving feature is the HalfLoad Plus function, which is great if you've only got a small load. Well built and well designed, this dishwasher will provide many years of enjoyment.

    Key Features

    6 Wash programs
    Includes: Includes: Auto 45-65°C, Pots and Pans 70°C, Intensive 65°C, Normal 45°C, Quick 45°C, and Pre-rinse.
    Advanced filter system
    The filter in this Bosch dishwasher offers 50% more surface area, allowing for 15% more water to be circulated through the system. This creates even greater cleaning power, and also makes the filter easier to remove and clean.
    DosageAssist detergent system
    The DosageAssist function is designed to maximise the effectiveness of detergent tablets. At the beginning of the wash cycle the detergent tablet drops into the specially designed tray, where it dissolves evenly instead of lodging between crockery or not dissolving completely.
    AutoBrilliance automatic detergent sensor
    The AutoBrilliance function will automatically adapt program temperatures and water levels to ensure the detergent tablet is used as effectively as possible. The result is sparkling clean dishes every time.
    AquaSensor™ technology
    This function helps you save even more water during the wash. A sensor measures the amount of soiling at the end of the pre-rinse cycle, and if soiling is only slight, the water is reused for the main wash. This can save up to 20% of water for the entire wash.
    HalfLoad Plus
    Unlike other systems that only wash in either the top of bottom baskets, Bosch HalfLoad Plus delivers superior wash performance regardless of where your dishes are stacked.
    IntensiveZone wash option
    This function saves you the chore of scrubbing dirty pots and pans. The entire bottom basket is transformed into a power cleaning zone with increased spray pressure and a higher cleaning temperature, while in the top basket, delicate glasses and dishes are protected.
    HygienePlus option
    This option provides a hotter final rinse, which makes it perfect for cleaning cooking utensils, glass jars, and chopping boards.
    Heat Exchanger
    The Heat Exchanger function utilises the existing heat from the main wash cycle to preheat the incoming rinse water, which saves energy and reduces temperature shocks to your dishes. It also facilitates faster and more hygienic drying.
    5 Spray levels
    The unique curved spray arms feature ultra-precise spray jets, located on 5 levels for optimum water distribution.

    A cutlery basket should have been supplied at this top end model. I bought it because of champagne & wine glasses were to fit easily into the dishwasher but the top cutlery draw is in the way. A cutlery basket is more convieniant than hand feeding into slots. How much to get one please. The machine has provision for the over head sprayer if the top draw is taken out therefore a cutlery basket should be provided. Thanks.

    We are very satisfied with this dishwasher. It replaces another brand that we had for nearly 10 years. No problems with the old dishwasher but can now see a huge difference in the way our dishes look after a wash. They are so shiny. The Bosch is SO SO quiet. If it was in my bedroom and cleaning a load I still could sleep like a baby. VERY SATISFIED

    Great machine. Unbelievably quiet! Love cutlery drawer and large capacity. Has many options for washing cycles which are easy to use. Love that you can adjust the rack heights to suit load, you can also remove top rack if washing large baking trays - brilliant! Quick cycle and half load options are great!! We love our Bosch dishwasher!!

    Great dishwasher. Very quiet. I love the cutlery drawer. The only complaint is that the soap often gets caked in the dispenser instead of being released during the wash cycle. Apparently this can be avoided by making sure the dispenser is completely dry before use but it is annoying to have to check this every time.

    Dish washer is fantastic. I was and still am very surprised at how quiet the dishwasher is, the electric kettle make more noise boiling water than the dishwasher makes washing the dishes. The dishes pots and pans are washed sparkling clean first time and are thoroughly dried. It is a great machine no doubt about it.

    First time I have dealt with appliances on line and I have to say the were fantastic. Everything they said would happen did happen no surprises. What impressed me was the delivery. I did go to two appliance stores only 4 klm from where I live and apart from being $410:00 and $375:00 dearer they could not tell me when the applaince would be delivered other than sometime during the day I picked for delivery and the cost for delivery was $50:00 and they would not take the old dishwaher away. Appliances on line said they would call around 7:00am with a delivery window of two hours, the driver called at 7:05 am and said delivery would be between 2:00p.m. and 4:00 p.m. they delivered at 5 minutes to two. put the dishwasher where I wanted it and took the old one away. The delivery guys were very friendly happy guys and very willing to help and this delivery service was free, you really cant get better than that they were great. I have recommended them to friends and will continue to do so they will also be the first place I look to when I have to replace any other appliance.

    I have recently purchased a Bosch dishwasher from your online store. This is now the second purchase my family (myself and my Mother) have made from your company. Firstly we were very happy with the prices realising we had both saved quite a few dollars on each purchase. Secondly I cannot believe the service you provide. On both occasions we received informative emails explaining what will happen immediately after we placed the online order. We were rung each time before 10 am on the delivery day that I had requested letting us know what time the delivery would be that day. GUESS what, the delivery was made within minutes of the time provided for each purchase. The delivery people were friendly and very helpful making sure my appliances were safely delivered. I cannot fault my experiences with Appliances Online. In fact I have told many of my friends about my experiences and my work mates also. Keep up the great work and I know I will be checking you out for my next appliance purchase. Your site is saved on my computer already.

    Great and friendly service from your on-line troops. Your website is absolutely fabulous and easy to use. I rave about it to anyone I can. Your system for delivery and scheduling was great. I have bought 2 major appliances from you and will continue to jump onto your site whenever I need another. I have only one issue to raise which I have already reported to your customer service staff. The first appliance went totally smoothly from advice to ordering to delivery and installation. The second however did not go so smoothly as the deliverers were quite slapdash and they made a mess in my kitchen slopping mud all over the place, and leaving a bad impression. My wife and I had to clean up after them, which left a negative impression on us. The only other comment I would like to make is that I would have dearly liked to have seen some MIELE appliances in the dishwasher range as we have a preference for that brand.

    Good pricing and huge range available. Good website for easy online purchases. Solid testimonials. I was promised two day delivery for my new Bosch Dishwasher and Washing machine but when the stock arrived and was unpacked the dishwasher was damaged and the washing machine was not on board. The installer advised not to proceed with the dented dishwasher. I called Appliances Online and to their credit their manager Peter went beyond my expectations in having two replacement items shipped to arrive to me within 3 hours of my call that afternoon before the start of the long weekend! The way they met and responded to my complaint was amazing. Two sparkling new items were re-delivered and the installer returned and had both appliances working that afternoon. Although my first impression was negative their professional recovery within the promised eta means I would definitely use them again.

    I couldn't be happier. I have purchased a Fisher & Paykel washing machine from Appliances Online previously & was so impressed with their service & quick (next day delivery) that I came back. This time I ordered a Panasonic microwave & a new Bosch dishwasher. The wonderful salesman I spoke to was so much help explaining & advising me on every aspect of the products I required. Just for the exercise I went to **** **** to see the same items to compare, the sales person had no idea about the products or why price was different, from one model to another.... NO IDEA at all. So I will never go again to that other place. It is a complete difference just try... give Appliances Online a call & see the difference. You will also save $$$$$.

    "Service was excellent"

    Bought a dishwasher from you. Service was excellent, product delivered pronto and guys took the old one away having helped to transport the new one as close to where tit was to be installed. Everything worked out perfectly, even downloaded the manual prior to receipt of the product - which also included a hard copy manual. Well done guys

    Thank you so much for the excellent service. I ordered a dishwasher on line at 7.30pm and it was delivered at 7.30am the next day. The drivers were so polite and professional. The call centre staff were so helpful and went out of their way to get my product delivered the next day.
