Dont waste your money

Biggest waste of money, this machine is useless! Small drum in comparison to my old Hotpoint 8kg, very little programmes, spin is useless, clothes barely rung out! Absolutely detest this machine! Deserves ZERO stars!

Too many gadgets

Bought a bigger load capacity To find it has a sensor on it to not overload it . I am now doing smaller loads snd more of them with a bigger washing machine . Also it won’t start unless you have closed and reclosed the door and fabric drawer several times . Not happy at all .

Long wash cycles

I'm a Bosch fan and my previous machine had served me very well for 20 years, but I was a little bit disappointed with this one. It has a flashy bulky door, that for me opens the wrong side (opens against the room door and away from the sink). The Easy Care cycle takes 2 and a half hours and the Eco-cycle 3 and a half. The programme selector knob doesn't click firmly into position (so I found I'd selected a long Rinse programme instead of a short Spin). My grumbles may be a matter of getting used to a new machine (e.g. I may stick to the Mixed Load programme - 1 hour).

Washing machine

Only 2programmes I use regularly, both only take 4kg wash. For an 8kg wash, the programme takes over 3hrs 30mins to complete, which is time consuming for a busy household.

Disappointing spin performance

I love how quiet this machine is. It has a good selection of programmes and thankfully you can shorten the time of the wash cycle on most of them. However, I am really disappointed with the spin performance as 99% of the time I need to spin the load twice prior to putting in the tumble drier, hense the 3 star rating. Also the soap drawer is very flimsy, not the quality I would expect from a Bosch!

Good machine

Super quiet compared to our old machine and easily takes a full load for a family of four. The door opening seems big too so the finished load can just be dragged out.

Ok Bosch

This was a replacement of a previous BOSCH model which we'd had 7 years and been happy with. It is an OK machine but not as good as the previous model. It is 8kg drum, the same as the old one but many of the modes on the machine have a reduced capacity of only 4kg!! Poor! The door is very sensitive too so if clothes touch the seal at all it will not start. On the positive it has a better dial/display system for changing wash settings and the door has a flat glass panel preventing the dust build up on the door which I like. Over all I was disappointed it wasn't as good as the old one but it is a reasonable machine.

Quiet machine

Super quiet washing machine. My only complaint is there is no 8kg quick cycle and that an 8kg load takes 3+ hours
