Review Summary:

At this price, you are going to find few machines that offer as much as the Bosch SMS69M12GB. It can handle up to 14 place settings per load, and the user gets a lot of options with its versatile interior racking. The wash performance on this machine is really impressive, and it has nice features like sensor washing, half load and intensive zone. While there are cheaper machines out there, this machine offers a good value when you consider its reliability, features and performance.

With the Bosch Serie 6 SMS69M12GB, you have a dishwasher that performs well in almost every regard. It delivers a nice selection of washing programs, and it comes with some great features that help to improve the performance and make the machine more convenient. When you consider that it is also fairly efficient, using only 299 kilowatt hours per year, it makes this model a particularly attractive purchase.

This Bosch dishwasher has an interior that is very well designed. With the racks in this machine, you get much more than the standard adjustable features. It has a three-stage adjustable top basket, a number of different folding racks and specialized compartments for different items. In addition to that, you get the third level cutlery tray. It is great for washing the cutlery, and it frees up more room in the racks.

The SMS69M12GB also comes with a great selection of programs and some nice features. It has the auto program for most of your standard washing. With this setting, the machine uses sensors to manage the operation, and it provides great results and efficiency. Beyond that, you have an intensive wash, economy, a 30-minute quick wash, a delicate cycle and a pre-rinse.

For its washing performance, this Serie 6 machine is sure to satisfy. Every setting works well, and it has nice additional features like half load, VarioSpeed, intensive zone and extra dry. The only point about the performance that might be a bit unsatisfying is the drying. Users will find that there is some moisture left on the dishes when the cycles finish. To compensate for this, most people are going to find that it helps to use the extra dry feature.

Another point that makes this machine a real standout is that is so easy to use. Usually, when you have a machine that has all of these features and settings, the operation can be a bit complicated, but the controls on this Bosch are very well designed. It has a button for each of the cycles and then you can equip the different features or set the start timer with the push of a button.

The machine also has a helpful display that provides information about the machines operation. The LED display has a countdown timer and indicator lights that show the progress of the cycle. Additionally, you have indicators for low salt, low rinse aid and check water.

This machine also provides a good value in regard to the build quality. It has a stainless steel interior and it is engineered to last. The Bosch SMS69M12GB also has a self-cleaning filter and it comes with a lifetime warranty against water damage. It is an all around great machine that should provide years of reliable washing.
