Bosch WAQ283S1GB Freestanding Washing Machine - White

German build quality, fantastic efficiency. With an A+++ energy efficiency rating, the Bosch WAQ283S1GB is one of the most eco-friendly machines on the market. It can save you plenty of pennies on your monthly electricity bills and help you do your bit to protect the planet. An 8kg drum gives you room enough for a busy household, and with a top speed of 1400rpm it’s got all the power you need to squeeze moisture out of a load, making drying easier. It also comes with Bosch’s Varioperfect system, which allows you to use more energy to get a load finished faster, or less if you’ve got time to let it run, giving you total control.

"Quiet Bosch"

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

"We purchased this Bosch machine to replace an AEG that had lasted 19.5 years and we were looking to spend a little more than average in order to get the best chance of that sort of quality and reliability, without breaking the bank. It is obviously too early to assess reliability but the quality appears to be fine. Nice solid casing and door hinge. The main reason why we chose this model was the EcoSilence motor. It really is very quiet indeed and, as the only maintenance I did to the old AEG was change the motor brushes, I will not have that task again as the EcoSilence motor is brushless! Washing seems to be pretty good and there is a great choice of programmes. Very pleased."

"Beautifully quiet"

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

Cons: none

"Have used it for a month and am really happy. It was easy to install, it is easy to use, and boy is it quiet compared to my last Hotpoint washer. The machine has really good capacity and so far everything has come out completely clean. Loving the delayed start feature so I can programme it to start whenever I want so the washing doesn't get too scrunched up. Speed setting works well.

So after a month - no gripes from me"

"Machine is excellent quality. What you would expect from a German brand. The manual is next to useless. That really does need reviewing/ updating and reissueing to all owners!"

"Its a Bosh!"

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

Cons: none

"German precision engineering. What else is there to say. This one replaced my old 12 year old Bosh which has only had a new door seal up until now when the motor bearing started squealing and the pump was intermittent. This looks as well made if not better than the old one with a few new features. Its a lot quieter and more stable because it takes care in balancing the load before spinning.

Wash times can be longer if all the energy / water saving options are used but at least there is a choice. If you are not in a hurry then help save the planet and still get a good wash. If you are in a hurry then use the quick wash options."
