WOW.

I thought Bosch made decent machines, this is a suprise, hitting the budget market???

5 kilo capacity
1200 Spin

Only good thing, it is a smaller size, be aware of this, as it will look stupid in a standard space.

You would get a better wash with a stick and rock at the stream..

Machine is standard sized 60cm x 85cm, and Bosch have been making good reliable basic machines for years - we have a older version of this model which is about 12 years old and still going strong - never had any problems with it!!!

Washing results have always been fine!

Quidco is 8% and although the MDA10 code is supposed to apply to purchses over £289, it seems to work fine. Code expires 4th May.

Good find - heat added

Genuine question. How do you get your clothes dry in the winter with a machine that only spins at 1200rpm. They must still be semi-sodden. Tumbling would cost a fortune and sort of defeats any green credentials the washer may have.

Seems a good price but there's no way I could get anything less than a 1600rpm.

tumbling only costs £1 for a washer full of clothes near me?

thank you for that, it does make interesting reading. It would be interesting for a formal assessment to be carried out and to use current electricity prices. I think there would be a lot to be gained by ordinary joes like me if the government was to commission an accurate report.

Now all I need is someone to convince me that its greener to have a fleet of waggons trailing around town collecting small bags of cardboard and plastic and then shipping them to the back of beyond for recycling than it is to merely throw it away. I do recycle but something inside me keeps telling me its not as green as we're led to believe.

$hit!!! I ordered this machine last week....

I had one delivered at £216 and i think its good value, im in a smallflat with basic needs so 5kg was perfect.

At the full price.

So is this a normal sized machine, what is the width and height? I can see from one of the reviews it measures 56cm front to back.

I have a awkward space for mine to go in, I need one that looks a normal size but is not too deep. My hotpoint one juts out and stops me being able to use the corner cupboard next door.

My Bosch is most reliable brand I've ever had. Very quiet. Before you order, check whether your model is cold-water only, or whether it takes both hot and cold water.

Almost every modern washing machine has a cold-feed only, the only ones that tend to have hot feeds nowadays are the American style (large) top loaders.
#20
bosch usually have a 2 year guarantee, good price but bear in mind 5 kg is a very small drum size, if there is more tham 2 of you, you will be doing alot of washes. 1200 is more than enough spin, the only cycles to use top spin are cotton washes anyway.
#21
Cracking price even if it is 5KG drum, We had our kitchen done last year, and was given all Bosch stuff, all rock solid and worth every penny especially at this price.
#22
Fantastic timing. My crappy Hoover washer has just packed today, mouldy and horrible.

Can't wait for this beauty...Cheers and ordered....
#23
Bought this 4 weeks ago for £234.99 and very pleased with it.
After changing from a 9 year old indesit it's far more quiet in comparison, can hardly hear it running.
Quidco tracked at £15.67, waiting for payout.
If you want your old machine collected I guess you need to contact Best Buy in advance as they refused to take mine.
I paid with Nationwide credit card who extend the warranty to 3 years.
#24
Nice one - was after a new quiet basic machine.
#25
i strongly advise people to get atleast 1400rpm or higher washing machine... makes so much difference. Clothes come out drier and cleaner in my opinion
#26
just looked at the site... they have some deals for 8kg/9kg drums which are only bit more expensive then this such as: http://www.bestbuy.co.uk/product/1000149604/indesit-iwc8148-washing-machine.aspx

which is also in argos for £50 more: http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4786997.htm

as options you can have your old washing machine recycled for free and this fitted for £14.99 which isnt bad!

As a whitegoods engineer I would have to say that 1200 rpm or 1400 rpm makes a slight difference. Makes no difference to cleanliness.

Biggest factor for cleanliness and dryness is to avoid overloading.

Price is pretty good for a Bosch, as they are pretty reliable. Much better value than cheaper brands, which also have poor backup service.

Hey, I have the same 1 but Hotpoint gonna order 1 too!!
#30
The dimensions were standard but as larger capacity machines which stick out in front of the line of kitchen units have become more common most machines are much bigger so these are now described as slimline (but the width is standard).

It's A rated for wash performance - spin speed will make no difference at all to how clean the clothes are.

We have a 1400rpm washing machine but my wife never uses it on full speed, as a result our clothes seem to last a lot longer.

5kg load capacity is probably not a major issue to most people. The last piece of research I saw on this was in Which? a few years back and suggested that most people don't put enough laundry in to justify a full load - which is why machines now weigh the load instead of relying on the operator to press a 1/2 load button.

Seems a really good price for a reliable brand.

hmm. that's confused things a little. what are other people's views on bosch vs indesit? the indesit seems to be better specced, but bosch have a stellar reputation. what are indesit appliances like?

the indesit has a 1 year labour/5 year parts warranty. i suspect that makes it ineligible for the nationwide extended warranty. whereas the bosch has a 2 year parts/labour warranty which nationwide would extend to 3 years.

any suggestions? the site says the offers expire today, and i need to get one or the other (our current machine is making an ominous rattling noise... but then again it is a 12.5 year old bosch, so perhaps i've answered my own question!)

I agree. Bosch are great. I'm looking at getting a new washer for our new house.

Come on mate. You are surely not comparing a bottom end budget Brand like Indesit to a top prestige brand like Bosch are you????

Bosch like siemens, AEG and similar are far superior in every way and will last far longer than budget brands. My kitchen is complete with Bosch and Siemens and i will never look back.
#36
Can someone tell me about the water consumption of washing machines in general? Some forums say that the more water the washing machine consumes, the cleaner the clothes come out at the end... how true is this?
We are looking at getting a new washing machine and the only difference between this one and the other one we have on our list is that this consumes 41 litres and the other 69 litres which is quite a big difference.

Indesit = Hotpoint

Indesit will last probably 2 years max v a Bosch that will probably last 15+ years.

Indesit = False economy, Made in Poland.

Bosch = German engineering, Much better build quality, Most made in Germany some cheaper models made in Spain.

indi$hit weren't taken over - they bought out hotpoint after hotpoint took a massive hit when almost every new washer they produced had drum issues (1st 6kg machines iirc) and after that hotpoint and indisit machines were largely similar - hotpoint's quality dropped, indisits improved. Neither would I buy.

As a dealer back then I had the foresight to stock bosch, bsh had the forseight to move into hotpoints price points and we nor bosch have looked back since. I'm out the trade now thankfully but unless there have been major changes this bosch will likely have been built in the spanish factory to the same spec as the ones still built in germany (back then a few logixx machines and all siemens) - we were a little dubious originally as years before the spanish factory was a byword for trouble. However we never had any trouble - full stop.

5kg load is enough for a small family - it wasn't long ago most machines were 4.5kg anyway and everyone coped fine. 1200 spin is also fine, I wouldn't personally go lower but it's horses for courses here - higher spin will ring more water out but also wear your clothes more.

If your in the market for a new washer atm don't hesitate in buying this - it'll outlast anything else on the market at this price without fail. Unless your a naturist who lives alone don't expect 15 yrs from it though - yes there are loads of bosch around 15yrs old now but bear in mind the market is different and the cheapest bosch 15yrs ago equated nothing like £200 in todays money. Expect at least double the lifetime of a similar priced indisit / hotpoint / servis / beko etc.

Any questions drop me a pm - and no i dont work for bsh but they did make us a lot of money :)

I've had my Indesit now for about 7 years and still looks and works great. Maybe I was just one of the lucky ones! :) Also, had a Tricity Bendix for around 11 years.

The 5 year parts warranty on the Indesit is pretty much worthless - they just charge a high call-out charge to fit the part. I had a similar deal on a Candy - the brushes on the motor wore out and I was quoted £75 for a guy to fit a replacement motor. I asked to buy the brushes myself and was quoted £75 for a reconditioned motor (brushes not available separately). Eventually I sourced the brushes from a local shop for £12 and fitted them myself in 10 minutes. Bought a Seimens with 10 years part and labour warranty when it died.

I'd go for a basic spec machine from a respectable brand (like Bosch, Seimens or Miele if you're rich!) rather than a cheaper brand.
