How it works

The SMS46GW01A from Bosch is a high performing freestanding dishwasher with brilliant cleaning and drying results. Turn the dishwasher on in the evening without disturbance as it features a very low operating noise at only 46 dB(A). The impressive 4.0 star energy & 4.0 star water rating means high energy efficiency and low water consumption, while MachineCare maintains the wash quality and reliability of your dishwasher throughout its lifetime.

ActiveWater technology: less water, less energy, more performance

This innovative rinsing technology maximises efficiency and ensures environmentally friendly rinsing for excellent cleaning results. The water and energy is saved through targeted water distribution, optimised filter technology, faster heating and higher pump performance for increased water circulation.

AquaSensor: soil detection for brilliantly clean dishes

The AquaSensor regulates the water usage depending on the type and degree of soiling, using light beams to manage the rinse. Depending on remaining food particles, grease or detergent residues in the rinse, the rinsing process is assessed to evaluate whether it needs to be continued.

Automatic programmes ensure the best cleaning performance, automatically

Water usage, water temperature and rinse time are adjusted exactly to suit the level of soiling. This provides best results while saving water and energy.

AquaStop for added security and safety against water damage

The AquaStop system cuts off the water supply directly at the tap outlet in the case of leaks. AquaStop operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, provided the dishwasher is switched on at the mains.

LoadSensor automatically saves water and energy for fewer dishes

The load weight is detected by a rotary speed sensor which adjusts the water level. The load sensor provides optimal water usage even for half loads or partial loads, saving water and electricity.

EcoSilence Drive™: powerful, durable, quiet and efficient

The brushless, frictionless construction of this advanced motor offers maximum efficiency, economy, durability and performance. Plus, with up to three levels of sound insulation and targeted spray jets, the result is a dishwasher that's even quieter.

Bosch 14 Place Setting Dishwasher is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans perfectly and silent operation Bought this as a replacement for an old Electrolux which died. I reviewed several models and brands, this model had consistently positive reviews. I'm happy to say it definitely lived up to my expectations. Has a large capacity and enough internal height to do any large dishes. Always cleans perfectly. Very quiet operation. Easy to use. The water safety valve on the intake connector is a bonus (prevents your kitchen flooding in the event of a water leak) Would definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overly complicated basket arrangement We are pretty happy with how this performs and it is nice and quiet. I think the top rack design is very complicated and not always very useful. Previous dishwasher was a 15 year old F&P and the top rack in that was much simpler and was easier to stack. On the Bosch there are flip up parts that don't get clear out of the way and are too low to get some cups under. There are more apparent places to put cups and glasses, but not all of them are big enough to fit the cups. The plastic cup holder hooks are OK, but the simple hinged upper tray on the F&P worked better and could cope with many more than 3 plastic items. The sliding cutlery basket in the bottom is a good idea, but the basket itself is overly fussy. A few more permanent dividers in it and ditch the flip over utensil grid things would be my suggestion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my Bosch Bought this machine because we have one in work and love it. It cleans beautifully without rinsing before stacking. The rinse aid indicator is excellent too as well as the different cycles you can use. Only slight downside is the odd basket. The cutlery section is too shallow and I’m still trying to figure it all out. Otherwise highly recommend this dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dishwasher drama sorted thanks Bosch & Harvey Norm Had been talking about replacing our dishwasher as it wasn't performing as it used to, checked fillers and performed a cleaning cycle as well as looking to order a new sump filter. Before ordering the filter the dishwasher decided to stop altogether so I jumped on Harvey Norman web site and ordered a new one. Best part they had them in stock in Dunedin. 4 hours later dishes are being washed just like new. Old Bosch out new Bosch in, Thr only problem I had was the new water hose has a larger fitting as the valve and fitting are all in one to prevent flooding if the soft hose splits. Nice and quiet, easy to use and install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! We were originally purchasing the cheaper model and decided to upgrade to this German made model with the steel liner and are so glad we did. Cleans beautifully and is so so quiet. I really like the cutlery tray and having option to remove it. There is also a basket for cutlery too. Love the adjustable shelves. Excellent product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent workhorse at a good price when on special Installation was fairly easy; everything needed to replace our 15 year old underbench Asko was there and instructions were clear enough. Compared to the old machine, this Bosch washes as well or better and is just as quiet. Although it has a few more stacking/holding features, I really don't like the overall stiffness of the racks and (especially) the door - those elements on the Asko used to glide and swing beautifully but this one needs tugging. I liked being able to disable the "rinse aid low" light, as we use all-in-one tablets - the process was fiddly but adequately described online, along with a few other detailed configuration features that some people might find handy. Overall, this washer seems to be good value for the money.
