Bosch 15 Place Setting Series 6 Freestanding Dishwasher is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 217.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Got it for a decent price after comparing and researching Series 2, 4, 6 and 8 models. I replaced a Series 2 model we've had for 3 years since we moved into our place. I love the touch screen on this model and its connectivity to a home network so you know when its done. If you have a big family that does two loads a day to keep on top of things it sends your phone a message. German made too. Beware that there are many Series 6 models and some are discontinued, this is the newest one on the market with minor feature differences, look for the touch panel. 44DB so it is relatively quiet and it has features that if you were in a very small space it could make it quieter still. Easy to self install too if you are replacing an existing dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch Series 6 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After many years my old Bosch dishwasher needed replacing. I did look around but kept coming back to the Bosch dishwasher range. I researched the different varieties and eventually chose this one. I don't need the Home Connect but I am sure it would be useful to those more technicologically minded than I. I have now been using the dishwasher for a week. I have tried all the different programs and have chosen the one most useful to me. Cleans beautifully, dries well and looks good in my kitchen. My daughter is in the market for a new dishwasher and I have highly recommended this one to her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch Series 6 Dishwasher [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased the Bosch series 6 Dishwasher just before Christmas to complete my Kitchen update. My wife and I were very impresed with the flexibility of the three trays. The cutlery tray was a stand out. We were very impressed by the silent operation of the washer. We also liked with the Quick wash and Express wash(30 minute) programs as they come in handy very often. From my research before purchasing the washer I garthered this was a very reliable machine. I hope to use it for many years to come. I am happy to recommend this dish washer to any one looking to upgrade or replace their dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is great [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have only had the dishwasher for 6 weeks but I love it. It cleans extremely well. I am yet to find anything with food residue on it. It is very quite, to the point you don't know it is on. It has a large capacity and takes all my large plates. The one thing I recommend is to use the speed perfect setting. It ensure the dishwasher doesn't go for hours. We used it over and over again on Christmas Day. Having 12 adults in the house made this perfect. I can not recommend this machine more highly. You will be impressed. It is free standing but we have put it under the bench and it fitted perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and washes well [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We chose this dishwasher after lots of reasearch and looking for a freestanding dishwasher with the closest to the sleak look of an under bench dishwasher. I like the bosch name as we have a hard working vaccum that has lasted forever and my parents have had their bosch dishwasher for 15 years without an issue. This model has the cutlery draw which we really like as it leaves space down the bottom shelf for large items. Ease of use is up there as one of the best features as the touch panel buttons are very self explanatory, and i like that you can see how long each cycle will take. So far we are very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch Series 6 Dishwasher with cutlery draw [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wow we brought this dishwasher on all the recommendations and great reviews it receives and it doesn't disappoint. My old dishwasher which was not cheap was noisy and never washed the dishes properly. This is amazing so many wonderful well made features, the glasses come out crystal clear. we love the adjustment feature of the drawers, we love the cutlery draw, the silence function is just that so quiet you wouldn't even know it was on. Buying a Bosch and German made I will never look back. All future appliances will be Bosch from now on. I see what everyone raves about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a beauty!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased this new dishwasher on 16th Oct after our previous dishwashers computer died. Very good looking appliance with heaps of space and adjustable rack height. I love the stoppers that prevent the kids pulling the whole dish draw out. The drawers are very smooth and the programs are very quiet. My husband and I both installed the Home Connect App which lets us do a remote start when we are ready from whereever, see when the wash programme has finished (to remind the kids to empty it), when it needs a deep clean and when to replace the rinse aid. It couldn't be easier! Dishes come out beautifully clean each time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freestanding dishwasher [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I did a lot of research on various product and this dishwasher stood out from the rest. At a comparable price. I love the water rating, energy rating and the wash cycles. I also love that you can take out or adjust the middle rack. It has they cutlery tray as well as a basket for those larger dinner events. I haven't used all the wash cycles yet but happy with the what I have tried. The quality of the product is also great with metal trays and a solid frame. It was also easy to install as I was replacing an old dishwasher. I hope it last as long as my last dishwasher of 20 years. Thank you really happy with my choice.

Questions & Answers

Please can you tell me if this has delay start options and childlock on the controls? Thanks

Asked by: Nicky
Hi Nicky. Thanks for your question. You can delay the start of the programme by up to 24 hours. This has a child look feature. The door lock is a mechanical safety system and makes it more difficult to open the appliance door. You can activate or deactivate the door lock. Hope this helps

Can this dishwasher go under the bench? Or do you need a specific under bench dishwasher? Thanks. 

Asked by: Jenn
Hi Jenn. Thanks for your question. Yes this can be built under your bench. You can position this built-under or integrable appliance in a fitted kitchen between wooden and plastic walls. If you subsequently install your dishwasher as a free-standing appliance, you must stop it from tipping over, e.g. by screwing it to the wall or installing it under a continuous work-top that is securely connected to adjacent cabinets. Hope this helps
