Use the comparison tool on the website to show differences.

SHSM63W55N does not have Intensive Zone Extra Scrub. The button is also missing on the control panel.

I can speak to this. When I worked at Ryobi our model numbers were a mess but I could look at any one of them and tell you the years it was active, how many batteries it came with, the voltage, what type of packaging it came in (plastic blow mold, bag, or nothing) which charger series it was, which quality level it was, and in some cases which factory built it. This was before they split the lines into Ryobi/Ridgid/Milwaukee and Ryobi was consumer grade to ultra-pro grade.

Why are the model numbers so complicated
How could it be confusing?

Use Product Comparison: https://www.bosch-home.ca/en/products/p ... comparison

"Intensive Zone" on SHS863WD5N. Otherwise, looks the same.

Except there is no price listed for that model, which leads me to think it might not be available.

863 has a couple more features than M63:

- Extrascrub
- "Doubleflex" vs. standard silverware basket

Go to CAS's website: LINK

and click "view and compare Bosch dishwasher lineup" under the photo and a Bosch PDF opens up and the info above is listed in a chart. They're both the same price at CAS' website.

Tip: if you have a Perkopolis account (via work, Canadian Tire roadside assistance, etc.), you can access Bosch's store with a huge discount. Just log into Perkopolis and search for Bosch.
