Good Capacity

This model has a large 8kg drum, which is great for growing families. You’ll be able to fit 8 full outfits inside in one go, with enough space to give everything a really thorough clean. You’ll whizz through uniforms and work wear, so you’ll do fewer wash loads per week.  

Good Capacity

The Perfect Wash

You’ll get brilliantly clean results every time with this Bosch washer. Using clever sensors, your clothes are weighed to allow the machine to use the perfect amount of water, time and energy for the cycle. Water is measured to the last drop so you’ll save money on your bills.

The Perfect Wash

Whisper Quiet Motor

This washing machine has a super-quiet motor that is really efficient and long lasting. The motor that runs this machine uses magnets and not brushes to power itself
so it’s great if you’ve got open plan living, or if you’d like to take advantage of cheaper night time energy costs.

Whisper Quiet Motor

Speed and Efficiency

Take your pick between a 60% quicker wash or a 30% more energy efficient wash. The quicker cycle uses more energy to speed up the wash, so it’s perfect when you’re in a rush. If you prefer efficiency over speed, the eco cycle takes longer but uses less energy.

Speed and Efficiency

Special Drum Design

The special wave pattern and shaped paddles inside the drum allows your clothes to move around freely. This gives your clothes a more thorough clean. It also means that your clothes move around the drum evenly so you’re guaranteed fresh, spotless clothing, every time.

    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"

    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."
