Bosch WAB24260GB Freestanding Washing Machine - White

Great features, great build quality Thanks to the SuperQuick wash, the Bosch WAB24260GB cleans a small load of around 5 or 6 T-shirts in just 15 minutes. Very handy for saving time. The 5.5kg drum means a full load will hold up to 27 T-shirts, plus the 1200 spin makes your drying much quicker too. It spins away excess wash water to leave your clothes much drier. With a dedicated allergy wash the cycle adds extra rinses to make sure detergent and allergens are flushed away – great for those with sensitive skin or even hay fever.

"Automatic, Hydromatic, why it's a Bosch washing ma"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good

"I received my Bosch washing machine and promptly realised that I had no where to plumb it in, thus I can confirm that this washing machine is extremely easy to plumb in. A quick trip to get a fitting and a pipe cutter and bish, bash, Bosch....fully working washing machine!

At first the instructions booklet appeared too little lightweight to provide all the information that I would require, but in fact the information is helpful and has provided all of the information that I needed.

The front is not too cluttered with dials and buttons, which I find pleasing. Simple and smart, almost retro looking but with a nice clear LED display. It is easy to select the desired programme using the one dial, although it is slightly difficult to see which programme you have selected on the bottom third of the dial, as you are normally above the washing machine when doing this. There are buttons for altering the temperature and the such within the programme which is good as it doesn't seem to have a pre-set 30C wash. Which is perhaps an oversight in my mind - this is why i've given it a 3* for features.

The detergent drawer seems to be sturdy and easy to use.

It has currently done one load of lightly soiled washing, laundry came out clean and smelling sweet. I'm yet to try the 15 minute wash, and am intrigued to see how well this works."

"No frills washer"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, optional child lock, 15 /30 min. washes

"The Bosch WAB 24260 GB is a basic but well designed quiet washer,The only reason we didn't give full five stars to every catagory is that the spin speed should auto set to 1200 on switch on,so manual alteration only needed if slower spin required.Especially like the 15 and 30 minute quick washes.Most washers have too many complicated lengthy programmes not used by the average family.Also like the child time lock on or off feature.In a no kids house (all grown up) it can often be frustrating waiting to open the door"

"Neat washing machine"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

"This washing machine is easy to use, doesn't have lots of sophisticated programmes and settings but is a good all-rounder. It washes well and is very straightforward. The washer drum is slightly smaller than what we had before but that's not a problem. The timing display is a helpful feature so that you can see how long the programme has left to run."

"Bosch...There it is!"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

"This washing machine is extremely easy to use doesn't have lots of sophisticated programmes and settings and is ideal for a single guy like me. It washes items as you would expect. The washer drum is more than adequate size wise. The timing display is a helpful feature and the two speed settings for quick washes is fabulous. This is a machine I would definitely recommend. Great delivery and communications by the company - enabled me to get on with things without wasting a whole day expecting a delivery."

"GREAT PURCHASE!..DELIGHTED!"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, 15min & 30 min cycles

Cons: a little small for the average family

"The Bosch WAB24260GB is everything I could wish for in a washing machine!...Solid & well built. Simple to operate with a change in temperature and spin speed available on each cycle at the flick of a switch.....AMAZINGLY quiet, I can never actually tell when it is spinning ;even on 1200rpm!...It has a warning "beep" for when the selected cycle has finished...Particularly good features are an Allergy cycle which gives additional rinses for those who suffer washing detergent intolerances and quick 15min and 30 min cycles which are very useful for items which are only lightly soiled and just need a quick rinse!...It also has a display clock to inform you of each cycle length. For me, the very best feature of this machine lies in its SIMPLICITY...It's very straightforward to use, no complicated "bells & whistles" yet it washes brilliantly...The only down side would be, perhaps, its drum size/ capacity...I doubt if it would be large enough for the average family but for a couple, it's just PERFECT... In conclusion, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Bosch washing machine...It is, without doubt, the best I've ever purchased!"

Bosch WAB24260GB

The Bosch WAB24260GB comes with a 5.5kg drum, making it ideal for small families or couples. It’ll hold around 27 T-shirts per load, though if you’re running a smaller load of 5 or 6 T-shirts, the SuperQuick wash will get it done in just 15 minutes.

There’s a slightly longer 30 minute quick wash which will clean the equivalent of 10 T-shirts, and thanks to the easy iron options, it’ll stop heavy creases setting in. By using gentle drum movements and spinning your clothes in both direction, it stops tangles. It really makes it light work for your iron.

You’re getting a great range of dedicated cycles to suit your different fabrics too. Delicates, and darks; the presets change everything from the temperature of the water to the speed of the spin in order to protect your various fabrics. Very handy for your favourite jumper, you won’t have to worry about it getting stretched out of shape.

There’s even a special allergy cycles, which is ideal for those who suffer from sensitive skin or hay fever. It adds an extra set of rinses to you cycle, flushing away things like pollen, pet hair and leftover detergent.
