Miele Double WaterProof System vs Bosch AquaStop Dishwashers - Leak Protection Comparison

Miele Double WaterProof System vs Bosch AquaStop Dishwashers - Leak Protection Comparison

When purchasing a dishwasher, getting one with leak protection would be useful. Very few brands offer this feature except Miele and Bosch. Bosch is the only U.S. manufacturer to offer a leak protection system with AquaStop®. German company Miele has a leak protection system of their own in their Double WaterProof System.

Both the Miele Double WaterProof System and Bosch AquaStop detect leaks in their bases, and then shut down automatically. The only difference is that Bosch AquaStop automatically drains the water in base for you while Miele’s Double WaterProof System does not. The base of Miele’s leak protection dishwashers would have to be manually drained, which you would have to contact them for further instruction.

Since there’s very few dishwasher brands that offer the luxury of leak protection, we’ll show you the best options for leak protection dishwashers, from both Miele and Bosch.
