Found 26th Mar 2014
John Lewis have just dropped the price of this dishwasher from £277 to £245. If you select the trade in offer they will give you a further £40 off, apply code boschdishmar at checkout. Also collection of your old appliance is free saving you another £9. This appears to be exactly the same dishwasher as the next model up but without the digital display and delay timer, which makes no difference to how I use my dishwasher.

Offer ends at the end of month.

This is the next model up and has got good reviews, the machines seem identical in features apart from the digital countdown display.

I wonder if there will be a surge of people visiting their local dump to pick up faulty dishwashers to trade in for this offer!

Thanks, that's better than the cash back offer.

good idea!

Can't go wrong for that money, really don't see why more people don't have dishwashers, makes it so much easier, we use economy, electric shower and dishwasher, don't bother with hot water tank.

Thanks

I have to agree, I wonder what percentage of British households have a dishwasher now. I wouldn't be without mine. I'm on a low income and my "new" dishwasher cost me £75 from Gumtree, it had been used twice My previous ones had cost £120 and £150 new. They make life so much easier, no more spending an hour getting your sleeves soaked washing a Sunday dinner up. I probably run mine three times a week and my electricity bills didnt appear to rise. The one thing I would say to anyone thinking of getting a dishwasher, is that full width ones are much better than slimline ones. They hold SO much more but Im sure don't use much more energy to run, and they wash the dishes better too. LOVE my dishwasher!

I bought the model up from this after having Hotpoint's for many years as I thought Bosch would be an upgrade.

Have to say I've been disappointed with the overall cleaning of the pots by the Bosch machine and I've already had to replaced the door catch twice in three years as this breaks easily.

Back to Hotpoint for me next time I think.....

The next model up has a childproof door so maybe it is a different mechanism to this model and hopefully won't break. I purchased the extended warranty too.

Anyone else having problems getting onto Johnlewis web site? Comes up with error

I have a BOSCH dishwasher which is about 10 years old and is so good when I had a new kitchen installed I kept it and had an extra door ordered to replace with a fully built in model.Unfortunately the damn dishwasher just keeps on going !
Don't buy bosch if you want to change appliances every 2 years

My experience is the reverse. Wouldn't go back to Hotpoint. Although with the Bosch the spinners can get clogged up with muck. Put under the sink tap to make sure water is coming out of all the orifices. Note to self: remind wife dishwasher is not the same as garbage disposal.

No appliance today is built as well as those from 10-20 years ago. I always buy the extended warranty.

Apart from this deal, john Lewis is running other deals with Bosch and can get up to £100 cashback.

That's a real bargain! I wish I had gone for a full size. It's a damn nightmare getting all the frying pans and lids iin. Somehow, some items don't come out dry. As this is my first dishwasher from Bosch, could someone enlighten me? Do some of the items come out wet? Whenever I have to dry some items, I felt conned! Nice to have a dishwasher though!

Frying pans in a dishwasher really ?

Which model have you bought as it sounds like you have a slim one, this one is full size?

Some reviews do say things can come out wet, this model uses residual heat to dry the dishes, that's what probably makes it energy efficient. I think you have to pay a lot more for all the bells and whistles.

Probably because a dash of washing up liquid and a running hot tap with a gentle circular scrubbing motion on dishes does the same thing, saving you the hundreds of pounds on a machine to do it for you, ya lazy bum

Maybe not enough rinse aid, it helps drying.

Don't have hot water, no point heating a tank for washing hands, just use electric shower and turn on tank for rare occasions I want a bath, over 2 or 3 years it probably pays for the dishwasher in savings. I wanted paper plates but other half said no ;-)

What if you have 3 kids,work 12 hour days 6 days a week.I want time with my kids and other things are a priority. The last thing I want is to do all those dishes by hand.

Ordered one, just because they take away the old dishwasher free, it's got to be kinder than divorce, God knows what they will do with her though!oO

Thanks for the informative link. I am ashamed to admit that I use distilled vinegar as rinse aid. will it throw the Bosch slimline off its mojo? I heard the name rinse aid and thought straight away of chemicals ... er, I want to save money as well...

very good , but how much is your water bill now .

you could have just boiled a kettle

also a tub of fairy is a lot cheaper than tablet every go / bag of salt every so often . plus inevitable servicing repairs to machine.,,

Sinks were invented for a reason.


i can see how a family of ten would benefit , still spend 15 minutes washing off the crud ,loading / unloadijg it mind

Everybody and I mean everybody who uses a dishwasher would never go back to hand washing again.You cant get plates and glass etc as clean as a dishwasher with hand washing.When I do wash items by hand I usually put them in the dishwasher afterwards as they do not look clean.

i use dishwasher twice a month for same reason

otherwise don't bother .Uneconomic

Dishwashers were invented for a reason, too. And water bills? Lower with a dishwasher - modern ones use far less water than washing up by hand. All in one (no salt required) tablets are 10p each for a machine load of washing up. Loading/unloading - a minute or two per load.

Unless you've actually used a dishwasher (and I've been using one for 30+ years) you'll have no idea how much time they save, and how little they cost to run.

Your time may not be valuable to you - mine is to me.

Each wash, 10p a tablet, 7p electric(1kwh econ7), 3p water, salt= 20p a wash.
Use it 3 times a week = £31 a year.
shower 8kw x 7p= 56p per hour, so 5 min shower is 5p. 2 people shower every other day £18.
£49 a year total.
I think heating a tank of hot water a day will be at least double that, you still have to do all the dishes and buy fairy liquid...

3x a week ,

what so you leave dishes sitting around for several days ??

By several days, you mean, of course, an average of 2.3 days. Is that such a problem, given that a dishwasher will clean those dishes far better than you'll ever achieve by hand?

i bet you cant resist giving them a quick wipe down in between (_;)

taking up water and soap.


( may as well just use the sink )

That's utter drivel, as you well know. But if you want to live in your strange little world, that's your prerogative. I'll leave you to it - shan't be wasting any more time on you.

It's all a con to drum up more business - we tried to buy this dish washer and they removed the offer even though it was valid till 31st of March! I've spent hours on the phone trying to get this deal as advertised but John
Lewis not playing ball. I'm very disappointed in JL

The trade in offer is valid till the 31st but the price has now gone back up to £277 which is what it was before it dropped to £245.

Well each to their own, you can put them back on the dresser if you like but i tend to put the dirty ones in the dishwasher rather than sitting around....
