Bosch Exxcel WAQ283S0GB Washing Machine, 8kg Load, A+++ Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, White

Product information

With water saving technology to make a splash about, Bosch’s The Winning Line washing machine boasts intelligent ActiveWater technology that uses the right amount of water for every load and never wasting a drop more.

The Bosch WAQ283S0GB washing machine combines anti-vibration design with an excellent A+++ energy rating to give you an appliance that is both energy efficient and discreet.

With a variety of programmes, this Bosch machine is a VarioPerfect model, and achieves outstanding cleaning results for all types of textiles, and for all load sizes. Practically all programmes can be combined with the VarioPerfect ‘EcoPerfect’ option for more energy savings or with ‘SpeedPerfect’ for faster results.

There are gentle options for woollens and silks, and the Reload function lets you add something to the wash if the water level in the drum is not too high - handy if you’ve dropped a sock on the stairs on the way to the machine!

The Bosch WAQ283S0GB also features the 3D AquaSpa wash system where a higher water level ensures more efficient wash results. Water enters from three sides for quick and effective water distribution. During the wash, laundry is showered from above through specially designed paddles, ensuring gentle washing and optimum usage of the water in the drum. The innovative ‘wave’ drum design provides delicate care for your laundry.

Bosch guarantees that if an appliance is discontinued, its major components will be available for at least 10 years afterwards in the event of a part needing replacement.

Bosch Exxcel WAQ283S0GB Washing Machine This machine must be good, my wife really loves it. The amount it washes, when clothes are spun they are nearly dry & useing the " Reduced Ironing" is really useful. 22 July 2014
Another great BOSCH product A great machine from BOSCH which re placed our old machine which gave excellent service. We are a household of four adults and a fifteen year old so generate a large amount of washing. We have bought BOSCH white goods for many years due to their quality and reliability this machine appears to continue this trend. We have found it easy to use and clothing etc comes out clean and well spun and the ability to alter water temperature and spin speed was one of the reasons we selected this machine. The only slight difference to our old BOSCH is that the wash programmes take longer than on the old machine but we have got used to this. Due to health problems we decided to have the machine fitted and with the ease with which this was carried out it was money well spent. The delivery men were very polite and took utmost care when moving the machine through a difficult opening to the utility room. 16 July 2014
2nd Faulty Machine within 3 months! I am about to return our replacement Bosch WAQ283s0GB washing machine. Both machines have stopped working totally within 5 weeks of being installed by John Lewis. There is a problem with the mother board and the machine stops mid cycle regardless of which cycle is selected. JOhn Lewis have on both occasions replaced the macine but unfortunately it takes a week for each replacement. If you are considering this machine I would seriously reconsider or wait and see if it is a faulty batch issue. We will post another review in a few months time. 16 July 2014
A washing machine worth having! It was only when I bought this washing machine that I realised how badly my previous one was working. The Bosch seems to love doing its job, and is quietly efficient at it. I've used most, but not all of the programmes and found that they are effective. No damaged laundry, lost socks or unbalanced loads. The laundry isn't as tangled with this machine and the spin cycle leaves the clothing nearly dry enough for ironing. Love it--hope it turns out to be as reliable in the long term as people say. 15 July 2014
I love it This washing machine is easy to use, has sensible settings you actually need and cleans the clothes beautifully. It is much quieter than my last machine and looks nice in the kitchen. I would definitely recommend it. 15 July 2014
best buy Easy to understand and does what it says on the box and more.Better than my 20 year old Bosch.Very smart and quiet, and partitularly like the 15min. programme for smaller loads 14 July 2014
oh dear Seemed to be very quiet with lots of choice. However after selecting the 40 degrees mixed load I was left with unrecognisable clothes. I used this a few times and ruined lots of clothes. Terrible design fault the 40 degree wash is next to the 90 degree wash, unless you are 2 feet tall its diff to detect. I even asked my partner to select the mixed load and he put it to the same position. I am sure the machine will be great but just wanted to save anyone else from making the same costly mistake as me. 14 July 2014
Bosch Washing Machine Review We bought this machine when we moved house, having had a Bosch machine at a flat we rented. It was also a Which recommended machine. We've been using it a month and are very happy with it so far. It has a good range of programmes which you can modify to meet your specific needs and most importantly for us it has a child-lock! It's very quiet during the wash cycle. There's also a 15min cycle for emergencies. We'd definitely recommend this machine. 12 July 2014
