Why Has it Scored 85?

owners report that it has great user reviews with an average user rating of 90%, based on 45 reviews.
This dishwasher is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer dishwashers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Bosch dishwasher has an efficiency rating of A++, and its running costs of £440 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 2,400+ dishwashers that we have calculated running costs for.
The Serie 4 SMV46IX00 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
13 place settings
Quieter than average noise level
The extradry function ideal for difficult-to-dry loads
Enjoy whisper quiet operation with silence plus
Gently clean delicate glasses with the protective program
The varioflex basket gives users added flexibility when loading
Smaller than average max temperature
Does not support half-load

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each dishwasher by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the dishwasher is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec dishwashers come to market, the older dishwashers will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
