Afternoon all,

My washing machine has unfortunately died. The washing machine man recommended that i get a bosch.

I am looking to spend about £350 -£400 on a bosch washing machine, ideally i would like the new one plumbed in and the old one removed!! I dont ask for much

Has anyone got any ideas of any good deals or voucher codes?

Thanks

and your old one could be saved land-fill if you put it on freecycle?

Can I put it on freecycle if it is broken?

I got a new Bosch washing machine last month for £269 from Laskeys. Almost all now will take away your old machine (for a small fee). I
I am well pleased with mine and I can only think if you pay £100 more than me you will get a super duper one!

We bought AEG - similar to Bosch 2 years ago from B & Q in the lead up to Xmas when the prices were reduced to unbelievable deals. Suggest you try there - speak to staff - they'll tell you when the sales start but in current climate could be already! If old one plumbed in change over is easy - anyone could do it - flexi-hoses. Perhaps they do a take away service - need to ask - sometimes delivery drivers will do a "casher"?

My old one is plumbed in, do you think my husband will be able to plumb the new one in? He is pretty handy with most diy, but he has not done it before?

yes we have people take them and repair. One guy in my area takes a broken for a repaired free exchange. He likes messing with them!

its two taps usually-start with freecycle and get it lifted-then look and you will see two taps(or one if its just cold fill) and an outlet slotted into your drain.

Turn tap off-have towels and a bowl for water in pipe and remove. Pull out drain. Replace with new! 10mins tops as long as taps are not faulty and access is easy:thumbsup:

Yes it's a no brainer - bet you could do it yourself

I used to buy Bosch and AEG but I prefer Siemens now http://www.siemensappliances.co.uk/?29=9&25=896 as they are better made for all their home appliance....I think in Germany the brands rank like Bosch is in the bottom (but it is still very good relative to the British brands, if we still make any white goods ) and the Siemens , plus a few other brands and then Miele.... try to compare yourself for a washing machine. When I bought a Bosch fridge freezer last year I could not even get the fridge door to shut , every time I closed the fridge door the freezer door popped out and vice versa and the engineer who came out could not find anything wrong,.. this is a brand new fridge freeze with nothing in it yet and it leant slightly back...so I returned that right away and happy now with a Siemens.

bosch.......broke down 6 times in 4 months with the same problem(leaking water ) never got fixed by there incompetent engineers after months of its fixed its not fixed i noticed that the grout in my tiles was coming out and about 5 tiles popped off the floor so then had to wait 2 onths for bosch to come asses the damage get quotes and get it fixed...on the upside my new tiled floor is awesome.

before that it was a great washing machine and its working perfect now

Miele scores very well on Which? Best of the Best Buys below with prices:

Miele - W 1614 £588

The Miele W 1614 achieves top marks for cleaning and benefits from short programs, good brand reliability and a whole host of features, making it a worthy Best Buy.

We couldn’t fault the washing programs - both the 40 degree cotton wash and the easy care program get clothes spotless, and unlike many machines, the wash cycles are followed up by a decent level of rinsing. You won’t have to wait too long either, because you can wash 6kg of dirty cottons in 123 minutes, or an easy care load in just 78.

Miele - W3740 £800

When it comes to cleaning, the Best Buy Miele W3740 achieves excellent results across the board, so your clothes come out spotless whether you're washing cottons or synthetics. And unlike many machines, the W3740 rinses well.

Our testers also liked the wide door angle, which makes loading and unloading the drum a doddle.

Miele - W562 Prestige Plus 6 £649

The Best Buy Miele W562 Prestige Plus has an excellent cotton program that gets clothes spotless. Its easy-care wash also passes muster when it comes to cleaning clothes.

This model benefits from an LED display that tells you the time remaining until your wash is done, and there’s an excess detergent indicator, which is useful if you tend to over-dose your machine.

Whirlpool - SCW1012 £583

This silver Whirlpool washer has the biggest drum capacity we’ve tested – a massive 10kg. Cleaning results are impressive for the easy-care and 30 degree programs, and annual running costs are very low. But like many other machines on test, this model has a weak rinse cycle.

The large drum means the Whirlpool SCW1012 will take up more space than a normal washing machine. If you have enough room, you can buy a matching pedestal drawer to provide extra storage space underneath.

Zanussi-Electrolux - ZWF16581 £399

This Best Buy machine gets clothes really clean and has plenty of extra features, but its cotton rinse could be better.

Water and energy efficiency are excellent for cottons and good for easy care, so the ZWF16581 could be good for those who have a water meter.

AEG-Electrolux - L 62642 VI £599

You can’t go far wrong with this Best Buy AEG machine. Cleaning is exceptional – especially on the 40ºC cotton wash – and it’s good at rinsing, too.

Program times are reasonable for a 6kg machine, especially given the good cleaning results it produces. The 40ºC cotton wash is just under two hours and the 40ºC easy-care wash is 30 minutes shorter.
