Q & As

MRS PILLAI This product I select is because of WHICH review They are specialist and number one in UK which we can trust . Highly recommence to buy this. 04 March 2014
Good washer I purchased this machine based on it's low water and electricity consumption and am happy with it's washing performance. I especially like it's speed perfect option to reduce the cycle time and the 15 minute program. I am disappointed by the dampness of the washing once the cycle is complete. As I don't have a tumble dryer this is a problem for me and feel the 1400 spin would be a better option for others in my situation. 01 February 2014
Quality at its best I purchased this make and model due to the excellent service I had from my previous Bosh washing machine of 16 years. This model is easy to use and straight forward to reconnect to your services. The programme are useful and the drum size more than adequate for a family. My teenage son, especially likes the quick wash for small items. Its quiet, stable and attractive in appearance. But most of all it washes my cloths clean. I have had my model for 9 months, and I trust I will get at least 10 years service. 01 August 2013
Worked well until it broke We bought this machine mainly for the reputation of the Bosch brand and the glowing reviews. To be fair, the quality of washing was good and the controls and display were clear and intuitive. But it has broken down after only 3 weeks, and it will be a week until an engineer can come out to take a look at it. Our previous machine was a cheap and nasty one, but that managed to last for 3 years before starting to give problems. I am not impressed. 09 January 2013

Brilliant !! Love it , great washer super spin love the time speed and the quick wash function , simple easy to use all you would expect from a bosch washer hope it last,s as long as my last one +++ 20 November 2012
Bosch washing machine Everything that I wanted wonderfully quiet superb washing and spinning thank you John Lewis once again 19 November 2012
Quality machine I bought this washing machine after my old machine (a different make)developed a fault. Bosch were recommended to me. One month in and so far I am really pleased with it. It has so many great features. At first it seems quite complicated but it really isn't and the programmes can all be tailored to meet your needs. Spin speeds and temperatures can be reduced and the feature I use the most is the delayed timer where I can take advantage of my economy 7 electricity. The machine has a good eco rating, has a large capacity drum, and it even lets you know if you've used a touch too much washing powder. The only down sides I have noticed so far is the buttons need only the lightest touch and is easy for a child to change your programme, however there is a child lock on the machine which I haven't used yet. Also it isn't the quietest of machines on full spin so for open plan living it might be a little noisy. On the whole I fully recommend this washing machine. 14 November 2012
