I know its Bosch, but is this any good. Buying our first dish washer and not really sure what to look for apart from A++ or better rating and 10 seating or more.

The quality of German products has really gone down hill of late, and I've been through two Bosch dishwashers and an AEG in the past 15 years. Having said that the most unreliable are Samsung followed by LG, Bosch are still one of the better ones, but don't expect them to last much more than 5 years and you won't be disappointed. Repairs are just uneconomic unless you can do them yourself.

Most Bosch are good but there are one or two exceptions. Worth checking specific model on Which? website if you can. This is a very basic one (no problem with that) but one issue to be wary of is a very long standard cycle (90mins?) on some of them. Also some users complain of a plastic smell (the cheaper ones have a part plastic interior rather than all stainless).

I'll be looking at Bosch when my current 23 year old machine finally gives up but unfortunately they charge lots more to delete the casing for an integrated/semi-integrated machine!

BEKO are also well worth a look at the budget end as they have a good reliability reputation.

I got a Beko DWD5414 last week from Very. It's £199 and £6.95 delivery, but I used the £30 off code listed on here and there was just over 10% cashback on TCB too, so it worked out at £158.55 and I can pay interest free over 9 months. I'm impressed so far with the machine, glad I didn't buy an expensive one.

I bought this very same dishwasher from Currys two weeks ago for £239 with no cash back. I find it doesn't fit as much in as I would like and the door is very stiff. Cleans OK and is quiet though.

I've been checking them out and this is the business at a reasonable price 10% off with very. But I'm waiting for a sale. Very had £60 off this at Xmas but I missed it.

The same dishwasher is available at John Lewis, they will probably price match + offer a 2 year guarantee.

We've got a Miele. It came with a 5 year warranty, not that I ever expect to call them out.

Can't deny this is a good price, but I'd just get the mrs more rags from the pound shop

Just because it's Bosch doesn't mean it's good. Samsung produces the ecobubble washing machines now and some are the top 5 of 2014.

I spent shedloads on a Miele dishwasher and washing machine and I would never, ever, ever go back to Miele again. Only had them 4 years both and both have had new parts fitted and have basically been awful.

I see so many Miele users complimenting the brand, which is fine, but I have had nothing but problems.

So looking for something cheaper and hopefully reliable, in this Bosch. If it lasts 5 years I will be happy, that will be one year more and £500 less than the Miele!

Heat added ;o)

I am a complete noob when it comes to dishwashers but I am getting to the point that I need one - how easy would this be to plumb in?

Are you sure its the same? the model number is slightly different

In my opinion, the majority of problems with domestic appliances are caused by the user.

In the case of washing machines, it's overloading the drum, coins etc. in pockets and failing to clean out filters. We had a drain pump go in our Zanussi washer/dryer purely as my wife (by her own admittance) never cleans the filter out. She also never uses the Calgon that I keep telling her to.

The same applies with dishwashers. People don't use salt - which you always should regardless of the claims from these BS detergent manufacturers - and rarely clean out the filters.

Buying a reliable machine like a Miele does not exempt you from doing the necessary basic housekeeping tasks.

Bought from currys £239 couple weeks back. Works really well and it's quiet. I've had no problems with it . Good first time dishwasher .

In our house we share those kind of mundane everyday chores and if I am honest we treated our Miele's to the best treatment. De-fluff washing machine, plus check out all traps on a frequent basis and the dishwasher was always topped up with salt making sure all food was scraped off plates before putting in.

I think there are more bad customer experiences with Miele that actually make it out there, probably down to the fact that they are so expensive. No-one wants to say hey I spent a stupid amount on this and I made the wrong choice, our washing machine cost a whopping £1400 from John Lewis for the record ;o)

There's no need to scrape food off plates before putting in a Miele dishwasher, it explicitly says in the instruction manual.

Clearly you had a bad experience, it's the first I have heard. My family switched to Miele (4 different households) and we all love them.

Ok for single men, but a waste of time and money if you are married!:{

2-year warranty is standard on all electrical items thanks to legislation from Brussels.

It's a couple of years ago now, so pricing not really relevant, but it's certainly a premium product.

To give the full story, we actually called a repair man out to fix our broken dishwasher but it turned out the parts weren't available. He highly recommended the Miele washers and, as a certified Miele engineer, he had "test kit" which they used for training. e.g. to learn how to repair the latest models, you have to buy the latest model, take it to bits and put it back together again. He'd got one on the van that had gone through that process but was still regarded as new - "ex demo".

I took the serial number off the machine and called Miele direct to confirm it was a "new" device and eligible for a new extended warranty. It was, so I bought it for a considerably discounted price. It came up about the same price as a new Bosch would have.

If memory serves me correctly, a new Bosch was about £300, a new Miele about £500 and I paid about £350 for the ex. demo model. This all included installation and taking away my old one.

We used to close the door to the kitchen when the dishwasher was on but don't bother any more as the Miele is near silent in use.

Interesting, you bought a Miele washer/dryer and a Miele dishwasher for £500?

Umm, wow that's a bit stalkerish! And no, they were about £500 each. Never again!

Because they were written by somebody who has a budget of £500 for two appliances and that wouldn't even buy a washing machine?

Perhaps because they moan about their Miele being so expensive in the 7 years they have owned it, yet Miele supply a TEN year warranty that would cover these costs for free?

No cuddling, I just like stuff that works and am prepared to pay the price for it.

Not all Miele products have a 10 year warranty, all of the time - often the 10 years comes and goes as a promotion, so it does depends on when you buy as to whether you're eligible. Saying that, I think the minimum on their products is 5 years.

I think Bosch usually have a2 year warranty anyway? I have had a similar model for a few years now which did.

I am always prepared to pay more for my goods and I have always thought it equates to quality. But sadly buying two Miele products at close to £2K and their failure rate has sworn me off them for good. Mine actually came with 5 year guarantees, i had 5 years to the day out of the dishwasher and Miele wanted close to £400 to fix it!

My Bosch's eco cycle is about 130 minutes long, standard is about 120 (varies depending on how much water it reuses from previous cycle, which depends on how dirty it got etc). The quick wash is then only 20 minutes and a bit too lightweight for regular dirty dishes - need for something in between is my only gripe.

I live in a very soft water area and my dishwasher manual states I should use no salt.

I'm always very amused when people talk about an "eco cycle" on a dishwasher. There is nothing eco friendly about a dishwasher, full stop.
