Bosch 'traced 183,647 of 632,000 appliances'

Since the start of the voluntary repair action in July 2011, we have traced and repaired 183,647 of the affected dishwashers.

Although 632,000 were distributed in the UK, as the machines are now 8-14 years old it is not possible to accurately estimate of the number of appliances that are still in use as many will have been replaced or reached the end of their natural life.

To do so would be pure speculation. The affected models were manufactured between 1999 - 2005.
