The white version of this (SN26M230GB) was on my shortlist in case I couldn't get a decent deal on the Miele G5500SC I bought from John Lewis late last year. This Siemens is almost as well specified as the Miele (which is pretty good but doesn't seem that special in performance and build quality (ask me again in 10 years) but comes at little more than half the price. And the Siemens offers a 5 year warranty against 2 on the Miele (+ a 3rd year courtesy of Nationwide credit card). Given the generally good ratings Siemens get for reliability and customer satisfaction, this is a real bargain.

Incidentally, we had the Miele with the same £50 off for trading in our old dishwasher, and in the event John Lewis's delivery men were not expecting to take our old one away (they said that was something to do with it being ordered online so the removal was not on their paperwork). They did take it away when we asked (as we had no use for it) but it was clear we could have had the £50 trade-in discount without actually giving them an old machine at all. (No guarantee of course that that will be every customer's experience - maybe the discount is processed differently for Miele - who knows?.)

Good deal. Unfortunately they charge much more for a semi-integrated (ie bits left off!) which is what we need. Anyone know of a deal on a semi-integrated from a good brand (Bosch, Siemens, etc.)?

Well, you don't need an integrated one, you just want one. Buy a stylish non-integrated and save a load of money. Oh.....my......god! The dishwasher.... it's.... visible!!!! Give yourself a pat on the back for not being a slave to the system.

Your point is valid and understood, thanks, but it's an existing kitchen with all integrated appliances (not my choice - the builder's!) so one dishwasher in the middle of a run of oak doors really would stand out.

Ordered the white one and waiting on delivery. The silver one would fit better in my kitchen with the other appliances, but I can't be bothered to email here and there and hope they price match. Just such a faff. This Siemens unit seems to deliver amazing performance e.g. 10 litres of water per wash etc.
#6
Dunno why the silver one is £450 odd. The white is £399. I'd never pay more than £399 for a dishwasher. Wish I had gone for the Smeg at £249 at Christmas. But hey ho.
#7
Think I'm the only person in the world who hates these things. Got rid of mine. Can't see the point in them, as you still need to load all the dishes into the thing, then unload it, then put them all away! Got fed up waiting for a full load and people moaning there was no bowls, decent mugs left as everything was in the flaming thing waiting for a full load. Cutlery kept going rusty, didn't like the smell inside them either.

Quicker and cheaper just to do it all in the sink!

Not sure why the dishwasher would cause the cutlery to go rusty, while hand washing wouldn't?

But anyway we find both ours (two different houses) excellent and when we didn't have one in a rented flat, we really did miss it. However, you do need to ensure you have enough crockery and cuttlery to be able to fill it and not run out. We're all used to putting dishes straight in the washer, with a quick rinse if needed.

WRT smell I find dishes in the sink a bigger problem. Unless you're whole house is studious enough to wash everything as they go, which would be an even bigger waste of water IMO.

Yeah I am pro-dishwasher. The sink and a sponge is fine in real time. But if you have guests or someone staying over, it's nice to spend time with them than the dishes. My dishwasher broke down 2 weeks ago. I miss it as I have to spend an extra 20 minutes washing up rather than playing with the kids before their bedtime. My OH said she was relieved not to unload the dishes in the morning, but I had to explain about the time I spent washing them all and putting them away. Something she doesn't do.

If you run out of dishes because they are all in the washer then you need to buy more. Essentially two days worth. One for the washer and one for use.

Have never had rusty cutlery with handwashing. I have loads of crockery but people have their favourite mugs, bowls and would rather use them. I don't leave them in the sink to smell, that's gross. You just wash each item as you use it (much more hygienic than leaving dishes lying in a dishwasher to grow bacteria. ........and there is no waste of water as the hot water is sitting there in the tank anyway so it's as well to use it. :)

Friend fixes dishwashers and says he always stands back as he opens them in folks houses as the smell from many of them is vile.....yuck!

But it is annoying paying more for less. Top-of-the-range Bosch Logixx SMS69L12GB (stand-alone, white) is £449. Top-of-the-range Bosch Logixx semi-integrated SMI69T05GB is £562. And you only get 1/3 of a door! The fully-integrated is a bit cheaper, only £100 more than stand-alone. For no door at all! Or display panel!!

£626 for JL's semi integrated Siemens! No 5 year warranty either.

Just found this for £399 - anyone have a view on whether NEFF are any good these days or just a 'designer' name slapped on Italian mass produced stuff like SMEG, etc?

Apparently its Siemens > Neff > Bosch.

Our Neff Dishwasher has just stopped working after 4 years - I wont get another one. It's fully integrated so a replacement will not be cheap so I am pondering my options - risk a repair or replace. We've actually gone back to good ole fashioned washing up and our kitchen is much cleaner for it and it's good training for the children who are required to wash up. :-)

I'd be very unhappy if any of them packed up after 4 years. Our current one is 19 years old and still working, but making louder noises than it used to so probably on its way out. They don't make 'em like they used to maybe? Branded White Westinghouse but it seems to be just another Italian made standard bit of kit.

Unfortunately the water doesn't just appear in your tank, has to be collected/cleaned/delivered/collected/cleaned..... :) Although admitedly I don't know at what point the efficiency of a dishwasher compensates for the cost of producing/delivering/running/disposing of it (this place needs a confused smiley.

Not sure why people have stinky dishwashers, can only assume they put/leave food in them. Similar reason some people have stinky sinks, food gets stuck in the trap and rots.

Each to there own I guess, but as I'm a little pedantic/OCD when manual washing I find the dishwasher saves me alot of time :) Plus keeps the GF happy :)

How the hell does it keep the water in without a door? :D

On a serious note the LCD panel and plastic facade don't contribute much to the cost And are more then likely offset by the reuirements of making the unit integrated.

Glad I got my fully integrted NEFF with control panel for £189 on clearance though :)
#23
err.. do people realise that bosch-siemans are part of the same company? Siemans is positioned as the premium brand in the portfolio.

Anyway i have the black version of this machine, set me back £500ish a couple of years ago and its fantastic - would recommend it to anyone. Stainless steel throughout with proper pumps and innards.

Miele and Siemans directly compete with each other for top spot of top level consumer white goods..Intrestingly Miele are only seen with a halo in the UK. In Germany they are not veiwed as a top brand. We have a few Miele machines at work (large hotel) and they are excellent, be warned however they cost MEGA bucks when they go wrong.

Good price, good product. Hot from me :)

The 5 year warranty will be from Siemens on certain models at certain times. Providing you buy it from a proper retailer you register it ionline to get teh extended labour and parts warranty

This is a great price and I paid more than this on another offer a couple of years ago. Siemens make good quality stuff.

For those wanting integrated then the reason you opay more is because the market is smaller with fewer suppliers of these and the fact is you are squeezing in same technology into a smaller box (they sit in a housing so the wash area is smaller) and therefore as usual reliability is not always as good

For thise who cannot see the value in buying good quality together with a strong parts AND labour warranty, you are contributing to cheap badly made appliances stuill being made. Manufacturers will make crap if peope keep buying it!!

I've ordered it and it's being delivered on Monday next week. Once it's delivered you ring JL and quote the reference number they gave you for the price match and credit you the difference (£45.90).

Housing is the wrong word I agree - the technology is however crammed into a smaller box which in turn does make them less reliable in general.
Simple economies of scale mean that these will be more expensive as the prioduction run is smaller for each manufacturer and so parts cannot be shared as easily between models - nothing to do with perception or manufacturers making more on these models

"Smaller box"? They're exactly the same! With a different (thinner) door front and stronger door springs a freestanding one would do the semi-integrated job perfectly. No doubt the production runs are smaller but the unit profits must be much greater.

No they aren't. As you said yourself the bottom is raised from the floor so that the door opens over the top of a plinth. They are not the same and they are not the same size.

Unit margins are not greater than bog standard freestanding units on at least 2 manufacturers I know of as the production costs are much higher. Argue away if you wish!

They are actually made using different techniques but are broadly the same. The difference in price is solely due to the much smaller market - and therefore the higher unit cost of production.

I find this hard to believe - you got rid of a quality german made dishwasher that was still under manufacturers guarantee and then replaced it with a turkish made Beko ??

You didn't ask them to call out for free, and carry out a free check of the appliance, and if required carry out a free repair?

thats comparable with selling an Audi to get a Dacia !

I went to do this offer

But received this fob-off from JL



Dear Mr XXXXXXX


Thank you for your enquiry.



I have contacted Comet regarding the offer of 10% off the Siemens SN26M830GB dishwasher. Unfortunately, they advised that this offer is no longer available and will be removed from the website shortly.



Therefore, on this occasion I cannot offer a price match. If you wish to view more information about Never Knowingly Undersold and our pricing policy you can do so on our website.



I am sorry that I have not been able to reduce the price on this occasion.



Yours sincerely,

Comet is still showing the 10% off header- but it is not taking it off in the basket as advertised- so it may well have ended.

I'm going to phone and see- I phoned they said it's ended and won't honour the 10% even though it's still showing on the web.

Darn!
