    I am keen on buying the Bosch dishwasher SMS 66Gi01i.
    Would like to know:
    If there is a power failure before completing the wash cycle, does it have to be started again from the beginning or does it start again where it stopped?

    1. Josh

      It will start where it stopped. Depends on duration of power failure and dishwasher memory
