Serie | 6 Semi integrated, Zeolith - Energy efficient and perfect drying results

SMI68TS06E


Rely on PerfectDry for excellent drying results on challenging dishes, glassware and even plastic.

Highlights

ActiveWater technology: less water, less energy, more performance.

This innovative rinsing technology maximises efficiency and ensures environmentally friendly rinsing for excellent cleaning results. The water and energy is saved through targeted water distribution, optimised filter technology, faster heating and higher pump performance for increased water circulation.

AquaSensor: stain detection for brilliantly clean dishes.

The AquaSensor regulates the water usage depending on the type and degree of soiling, using light beams to manage the rinse. Depending on remaining food particles, grease or detergent residues in the rinse, the rinsing process is assessed to evaluate whether it needs to be continued.

Automatic programmes ensure automatically the best cleaning performance.

Water usage, water temperature and rinse time are adjusted exactly to suit the level of soiling. This provides best results while saving water and energy.

AquaStop with 100% lifetime guarantee against water damage.

The AquaStop system consists of a double-walled supply hose, a safety valve, as well as a floor sump with float switch, offering 100% protection against water damage. Guaranteed by Bosch for lifetime.

LoadSensor automatically saves water and energy for fewer dishes.

The load weight is detected by a rotary speed sensor which recognizes the water level. For bigger loads, more water is needed to soak the dishes and the water level decreases. In that case more water is added. For smaller loads, less water is needed for rinsing. The load sensor provides for optimal water usage even for half loads or partial loads, saving water and electricity.

EcoSilence DriveTM: powerful, durable, quiet and efficient.

To increase our cleaning efficiency we have developed the economical EcoSilence DriveTM. It is exceptionally quiet, efficient and guarantees low electricity consumption. The EcoSilence DriveTM works without brushes is ultra silent and top results are automatically guaranteed.

More protection for your glasses with the Glass Rack.

The Glass Rack allows you to safely store extra high glasses, bottles or vases in the lower basket.

Glass protection technology for extra gentle handling for your delicate glasses.

Because soft water causes glass corrosion, Bosch dishwashers with glass protection technology constantly regulate the degree of hardness. This is how we ensure that valuable glasses and delicate china are always washed with special care.

Glass 40° programme: the extra gentle rinse programme for best cleaning, optimum drying and brilliant shine.

The new glass 40° programme gently cleans glasses such as high-quality crystal glasses, while providing optimum drying and achieving a brilliant shine. This is made possible through lower temperatures, an adjustment in the rinsing agent temperature and an extension of the drying period. Shiny glasses and residue-free drying are clear proof of a brilliant and gentle cleaning result.

HygienePlus option: Rinsing with higher temperatures for highest hygienic performance.

HygienePlus is a new option that can be activated in many programmes, and guarantees maximum hygiene thanks to antibacterial cleaning. This effect is achieved by a higher temperature level of up to 70°C during rinsing, sustained for approximately 10 minutes. HygienePlus is therefore ideal for people with high hygiene standards, for instance in households with small children or allergy sufferers.

Easy pre-select programme start for the desired start time.

With the time delay function you can pre-select the programme for the desired start time. This allows you to handle your appliance conveniently, at any time during the day, during work hours or at night. After the start of the programme a display indicates the precise remaining time.

SuperSilence: exceptionally quiet operation at only 40-45 dB.

The electronically operated engine and many noise reduction measures, secure the exceptionally quiet operation of our SuperSilence dishwashers. Advantageous for eat-in kitchen or open areas.

TFT display gives you quick information on dishwashing progress, time remaining and saving water and energy.

The multicoloured TFT display provides information quickly. With pictures and easily legible type, it shows what cycles and options were selected, the dishwashing progress, time remaining, and much more. Handy instructions guide users through cycles and offer useful information on the best use of the dishwasher, and on saving water and energy. In addition, the display shows the salt and rinse aid levels.

Optimal drying and brilliant shine at the lowest energy consumption thanks to Zeolith® technology.

Thanks to the multi-award-winning Zeolith® technology, the opportunity to save energy saving is now even better, with brilliant drying results. The drying process uses very little energy and the power usage is reduced considerably: lowest energy consumption in the best energy efficiency class A+++ or even 10% less. The secret for this energy saving is the natural mineral Zeolith. It is regenerated after every wash cycle, lasts for the life of the dishwasher and never needs to be replaced.

GlassSecure Tray: stable, reliable support with brilliant cleaning results for precious glasses.

This unique tray for long-stemmed glasses has been specially designed for Bosch dishwashers equipped with the VarioFlex, VarioFlex Plus or VarioFlex Pro basket systems. It enables cleaning of long-stemmed wine and champagne glasses brilliantly while holding them securely in place. The glass tray, which accommodates four long-stemmed glasses, can easily be slotted into the lower basket. Simple swivel-catches quickly lock the glasses in place, while the new improved Glass 40° programme ensures superb cleaning results. The new Bosch GlassSecure Tray – recommended by SCHOTT ZWIESEL.

Heat Exchanger: always the right temperature for optimal dish care.

Dishwashers with heat exchangers treat precious glasses and porcelain with particular care and no risks. Water is pre-heated in the rinsing tank to avoid any temperature shocks.
