    Product Overview

    This Bosch washing machine is the perfect little helper for busy laundry days. With an 8kg drum capacity, it’s ideal for use in medium-sized households. It also comes with a handy quick wash, so if you need an outfit that’s ready to go as soon as possible, just flick it on and it’ll be spotless in just 15 minutes. Plus, if you’ve dribbled red wine down a white blouse, the intensive cycle uses higher temperatures, longer rinses and more rigorous drum movements to drive out tough stains. And, if you’re a big fan of cosy jumpers during the colder seasons, there’s even a special wool programme to keep everything in tip-top shape and feeling wonderfully soft.

    Features we love

    Gentle on your clothes and skin

    If anyone in your household suffers with allergies like hayfever or sensitive skin, this programme will wash away 99.9% of allergens, including dust mites, pollen and fur. It does this by using higher temperatures, more water and a longer rinse, so it’s perfect for hardwearing fabrics like cotton, linen and denim. This not only gently cleanses your clothes, but will help to look after your family’s delicate skin.

    Speed up the cycle to save time

    If you want to use a specific programme for your laundry but don’t have time to wait, Bosch’s innovative SpeedPerfect feature will make the cycle up to 65% faster. Once you’ve chosen a programme, use the SpeedPerfect option to increase the temperature and intensity of the water. Now, you can still get the same great results in much less time.

    Freshen up tired clothes fast

    This handy programme is ideal for light cotton loads that aren’t heavily stained. It uses a short wash cycle to leave them spotless, followed by a spin cycle to remove excess water. This makes it perfect for washing new clothes before wearing them for the first time, leaving them nicely refreshed.

    Add forgotten items during the wash

    If you’ve forgotten to pop a sock in the wash or need to remove something you accidentally dropped in the laundry basket, the Reload function will save the day. Simply press the Start Reload button and the machine will check it’s safe to open before draining the water and unlocking the door – all in a few seconds.

    Open plan living without the background rumble

    With this machine's whisper-quiet EcoSilence Drive® you can put down the ear plugs and get ready for movie night. It has fewer moving parts and no noisy internal friction, meaning your machine is seen and not heard - open plan living and late-night washing just got a lot easier.

    Measuring up tips

    This is a freestanding washing machine, so it won’t fit behind an integrated kitchen cupboard door. Just make sure you measure the space where you want the washing machine to live and add 7cm onto the depth to make sure there’s enough space for the pipes needed to connect the appliance.

    5/5
    Lovely washing machine and very easy to use, quiet had to check it was still working.
    Sandra

    pleased

    5/5
    This machine is just great, quiet, quick and doesn't try to walk across the utility room. The 1400 spin is really noticeable when you remove the wash. No dripping clothes.
    Simon Edwards

    Bosch a Go Go!

    5/5
    Great washing machine, with some awesome features. For instance: when pressing the child lock it counts down till it's on. Each program has a weight allocation, the machine won't start the cycle if it's over weight. When loading the machine, the display will flash between the time and weight allocation. Speed perfect is a great feature. It's not just a "15min" or a "short cycle" it does reduce the time, but stuff actually comes out clean. The door when it shuts is not a loud clunk, it's quiet and secure. The soap dispenser draw when pushed in has a little resistance at the end. So our two little ones can't open the dispenser draw easily. We do reusable nappies for our youngest, and this machine is definitely being tested, with the shear amount of washing and the constant program switches. We are always using the hot cycle at least twice a week. We seem to be using less powder than ever ( stuff is still clean, we then run a clean cycle every other week, with descaler), which makes a change as we live in a very hard water area. Bosch has been a go to brand for us, for quality and durability. Never had a Bosch washing machine yet though. We had another leading brand, which was good. Lasted us 6 years with constant use, but the last 18 months, was proving difficult for the old machine. This one from the get go is another level, and taking everything in its stride.

    Total satisfaction

    5/5
    Fantastic machine which runs almost silently. Clothes amazingly clean and almost dry. Couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend to anyone in the market for a mid priced machine. This is the 3rd Bosch product I have purchased and would not consider any other make.

    • Connection

      We want you to get up and running straight away with your new appliance, which is why our expert team will connect your new item to your water pipes and make sure everything is working properly. Connecting it yourself? Make sure you remove the transit bolts. These will make a loud rattling sound if they’re left in place when you run a cycle. 

    • Remove & Recycle

      £0

      If you’ve bought a new appliance but you don’t want us to connect it for you, all you’ll need to do is disconnect your old one and empty it, ready for us to pick up.

      If you haven’t bought a new appliance, we can still collect your old one and take it away for recycling. Our experts will recycle it safely and responsibly in our state-of-the-art facility.

      The cost of our Remove & Recycle service goes towards safely transporting the product to our recycling plant. Under the WEEE regulations, recycling costs are primarily covered by the product manufacturer.

      Also, while we’re picking up your appliance, if you’ve got any smaller kitchen electricals that need recycling – such as kettles, toasters or blenders – we’ll happily take those away too at no extra charge. Just pass them to your driver when we’re picking up your larger appliance.

    • Disconnection
      Price
      £10

      We’ll disconnect your old freestanding appliance when we deliver your new one

      • This includes the tricky job of disconnecting it from your water pipes

      Make delivery even easier by selecting all three connection and disconnection services in the basket. In one trip we can:

      • Disconnect and recycle your old appliance
      • Safely install your new one

      Just a quick note: if you’re buying a freestanding appliance to replace an old integrated one, we won’t be able to disconnect it
