My Bosch dishwasher died on Sunday after just five years . I am gutted as I was really happy with it. Unfortunately looks like it cannot be fixed so I need to get a new one. Not sure whether to go for another Bosch? They can be expensive and I really didn't expect mine to stop working so soon!
Any recommendations which one to get? It needs to be a slimline as well.
Can't give a recommendation, rather a don't buy. We bought a Bosch SMS40C32GB, but really regret it. The 50 C cycle takes 3.5h and the dishes are still dirty; bits of cereal left on plates, pans still dirty (I have tried running it almost empty, various makes of tablet and detergent). It has good reviews online but my experience of it is really poor.
Hi Wowfudge. Yes, it does give a little beep at the end of the cycle, but it doesn't repeat and it's easily missed if you're not in the kitchen at the time (unlike our new washing machine that plays about 10 bars of a Schubert tune!). The dishwasher is also so quiet that you have to put your ear against it to hear if it's still on. I like it, it doesn't bother me that I don't know when it's finished since I don't go back to it for a couple of hours.
