Bosch Exxcel WAQ283S0GB Freestanding Washing Machine - White

Great value. The WAQ283S0GB washes 5 or 6 shirts in just 15 minutes, though if you prefer running full loads, you’ll get the equivalent of 40 T-shirts in the large 8kg drum. The A+++ efficiency rating means this washer uses 30% less energy than normal A rated models – that’s a saving of around £10 a year. Great value for such a large load. The 3D Aqua Spa feature uses water jets to soak your clothes faster than normal washers too, so your detergent kicks in quicker and you get a more thorough wash.

Product Reviews

"An excellent machine"

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

Cons: none

"I have had this washer for 3 months now and am delighted with it. The thing I like the best about it is the ability to reduce the wash time on almost all the programmes and maintain an excellent cleaning result. Secondly, I like to be able to open the door after the programme has started - called amusingly a 'reload facility'! I also like the 15 minute quick wash and being able to alter the spin speed on many of the programmes. It is also extremely easy to use. The only drawback I've found, and it is very minor, is that it doesn't have a device in the detergent compartment to stop liquid detergent running down into the machine. Only a problem if using the delay start and easily overcome by using a dosing ball. The detergent draw itself is supposed to be self-cleanig and so far it has stayed perfectly clean. It was a real bind having to clean the drawer on my old machine and one of the features that I liked about this machine."

"Washing Machine purchase"

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

Cons: Noisy

"On arrival it was easy to install and we just followed the instructions for the initial load before clothing was put in and then have mainly used the 40 degree and 60 degree washes since. We bought this as it has the 15 minute wash, but for me it doesn't clean the sportswear as much as I would have liked!! I mainly use this on timer to go on the Economy 7 and it seems to have been working fine. Altogether a good washing machine."

"Buy Bosch every time!"

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

Cons: none

"Bought this washing machine to replace my old Bosch after 14 years . This is better, quicker, quieter and more efficient.

I was a little worried by some reviews about the fill noise. Not a problem.

It doesn't have a seperate spin cycle but again, not a problem. It has a rinse/spin cycle and spins at 1200rpm which isn't bad.

I use several programmes and also press the Spin Perfect button so it cuts the wash time down further.

I love the count down feature which was not on my old machine. Big bonus so you know whether to hang on a few minutes or go out.

Cons

The 15 minute quick cycle only spins at 800rpm though.

Buy this! My last Bosch lasted 14 years so it's well the worth the initial extra outlay as the build quality is superior to others so you do not have to replace so often."

"Disappointing"

Pros: looks good

Cons: paucity of attachments

"The electrical cable , inlet hose and waste hose are all of insufficient length. The plumber had to use the inlet hose from my old machine and buy additional waste hose, connectors and clips resulting in two visits increasing my costs. Bosch customer service have not had the courtesy to reply to my email of complaint."

"Good Bosch machine"

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

"Our last Bosch machine lasted 12 years, and we hope this one will last well too.

Best feature that's new is the count-down timer so you know how long the wash has to go."

"Great machine..."

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

Cons: peeping function

"Its great! Without a doubt, the best feature is the large drum! Apart from that, I love the ease of use and the programmes on Bosch machines, you simply cannot fault them on this and performance is fantastictt. It has some new washes that my old one didn't, for example the 'jeans' wash, which are very useful. The only negative comment I have is the peeping at the end of cycles which I have tried to turn off according to instructions but never seem to quite manage to turn them all off...this is terribly annoying for us humans but exceptionally irritating for our doggie who lives in the utility room."

Bosch WAQ283S0GB

With an 8kg drum this Bosch will wash 40 adult T-shirts, a handful of large bath towels or even the sheets on your double bed in one go. It’s really remarkable that the WAQ283S0GB is so energy efficient. You’ll spend just £21.48 per year in running costs which is amazing compared to standard models. It works out to a saving of around £100 across the life of the machine.

When you’re running a full load you’ve got VarioPerfect options at your fingertips. A push of a button tells the machine to run either a fast wash – very handy for doing a load before you nip out – or an extra efficient wash. It’ll take longer than a standard wash, but you’ll only use a fraction of the electricity and water to do it.

Really useful if you need a few things clean before heading out to work, you’ll love the Super Quick 15’. It’s designed to clean around three outfits at once and you’ll have them washed and spun in just 15 minutes. For extra speed the 3D Aqua Spa jets spray and soak your clothes faster than a normal washer would. It means you’re detergent gets to work a little faster and your clothes get a more thorough clean.

The unique patterns on the side of the machine are part of the Anti Vibration Design. Extra insulation absorbs sound and small movements so your wash cycles are quiet and smooth. You’ll find your washes are barely louder than your fridge freezer. It’s particularly useful if you’ve got open plan living as it’s not going to drown out the TV while you’re running a load.
