This is a good price. Has anyone got one? Whats it like?

Bosch washing machines are meant to be good. Unfortunately we need a 8Kg, nonetheless still a good deal if 5Kg is enough. Heat + rep added.

Good price for a bosch, i'm on the look out for a bosch but really want a digital if any one knows of any deals..

hot .................. :thumbsup:

cant go wrong with a bosch, bought one 2 years ago hasnt failed me yet

I bought this for £228 from Comet just over a month ago and picked it up the same day (my wife was giving me grief as our 5-year old Zanussi had busted!). I agree with the three reviewers on the Comet site, it's a very good machine for the money, especially now with free delivery and disposal of your old machine.

Looks like a good price for a quality washing machine.

Paid just under £100 more a few weeks back for the WAE28363GB from Dixons (inc delivery & collection of old machine). Similar design but with 1400rpm spin, 6kg load capacity and a digital display to tell you the time to end of programme. So far very pleased with it :thumbsup:

Been using a Bosch machine for years, top quality.

Scorching deal. Paying Hotpoint/Candy/Indesit money for a top quality Bosch washer.

We've had our Bosch for 10 years now (including 1 year in storage). It's never missed a beat, and is as beautifully quiet today as it was the day we bought it.

Bosch always score well in the Which survey, and the manufacturer is rated by Which as producing some of the most reliable machines.

Probably the biggest drawback is it's only a 5kg machine, but perfect if there's on a couple of you, or a small family.

I've had this for about a year. The best washing machine I've ever had. Bargain.

This is unbelievably cheap. I have a Bosch washing machine and they are awesome.

nothing wrong with that heat.:thumbsup:

my mum has a new bosch and its really noisy

that is a great deal - we have had a Bosch washer and Bosch tumble dryer for 6 years with no problems (touches wooden desk):roll: heat added

5kg is a very small wash load....you will need to use it twice as much as most machines. Just go and look at them instore. Unless you are a single person this is too small but a great price for a Bosch.

I have a Bosch 1400 spin washer had it 4 years now and they have been out to it three times ! It's noisy,doesnt take softener and sometimes the display goes and it doesn't spin right!!!
Because it is a cold fill only the dispenser tray gets really black and slimy, no hot water to keep it clean.
Been very dissappointed with it. I did have the extened warranty for 3 years and had to use it. They rang up and I got it for £79 worth every penny and I don't agree with it but in this case I did. I used to work at Currys and Bosch used to be top dog but after this purchase and the dishwasher (thats another story) I wouldn't advise anyone to buy one!
I am just waiting for it to die on me now so I can go and get something else


So in my personnel opinion I would not buy another!!

Why don't you just use the wash tablets that go in the machine itself? And most draws just pull out to clean anyway...dead simple.

The '5kg is a small load' comments made me smile! We bought our bosch 9 years ago - it's 4.5kg and at that time it was the only size you could get, 6kg machines came along about 6 months later.
Admitedly if I was looking for a machine now I would get something with a larger capacity as ours is on a lot but with the weather how it usually is that's only of any use if the tumble drier you have has an equally large capacity!
I did think yesterday I might need to find a new machine as ours stopped pumping out properly but my other half fixed it so it looks good for a bit longer yet!!

So the 5kg made you smile but you admit if you were to buy a new machine you would get a larger capacity machine. :whistling:

Just go into any electrical retailer, a 5kg machine is unusual these days...most are 6 with 7 and 8's available now. 5kg drums look tiny in comparison and it's quite obvious you would have to use it more often - hardly energy efficient or green.

The Hoover washer/dryer we have is 10 years old and is a 6kg machine so they have been around for at least that long.

The price is good, seen them in Comet yesterday but have to admit they do look very small in comparison but ideal if you live on your own in a flat or something.
I have a friend of the family who works for Bosch and this price is around 10% above what he gets them for, so approx 10% above trade price.
From a high street retailer with free removal etc it's gotta be hot for the right person.

The comments made earlier regarding Bosch equipment I can only put down to your bad luck, we have a Bosch Classix washer , an Excel Dishwasher , an Excel Condenser tumble and a Bosch Kettle / Toaster and all have been superb over last 3 years.
They all came with a 2 year warranty but it was not needed, my parents who bought hotpoint stuff are always having people out to look at it, leaks, door seized, programs cutting out mid cycle.
I still think Bosch are a cut above, there are better out there, but there are still alot worse to.

Nice price for this model, voted hot.

Although "white goods folklore" dictates that Bosch WAE models are built to a higher standard/spec than their WAA equivalents, so the story goes anyway. I'm on my second Bosch machine, first one died after 15 years long service because the bearings had gone, only other issue it had was needing new brushes for the motor. Think one of the issues about noisy machines is to ensure they're set up correctly in the first place, flat & level surface & that you adjust the feet accordingly. Have yet to meet anyone apart from me who uses a spirit level to set a machine up ... but that's just cos I'm sad & have no life.

My new machine is a Bosch, funnily enough, although a WAE model. Rock solid, does the job.

Simple rule of thumb apparently for Bosch machines is built in Germany = good, built in Spain = not good.

I have used automatic washing machines for a lot longer than 20 years, and have never bought ANY with a capacity with less than 6kg, including the one I have now. Admittedly 5kg ones are common at the low end price range.

Thankfully now 8kg is getting more common, but as tumble drier capacity seems to be maxing out at 7kg, then I suppose a 7kg load is going to be as much as I can hope for in the next machine I buy.

I'm not stupid!!! Above the drawer where the water comes to fill the drawer gets all slimy and black I have had this changed twice now. The 'engineer' told me to get a toothbrush and scrub it and also spray limescale remover! I even use the calgon tablets still wouldn't buy bosch again!
I don't use the stuff you put in the drawer but do use the softener in the drawer them plastic softener pouches don't disolve and lease residue in the washer and on the clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!

All modern cold fill washers do this. (an almost ALL washers now ARE cold-fill) especially when you use modern colour-type washing powders & liquids. The type for whites has some bleaching agents in it which seems to minimise it, but I suppose only every 7th or 8th wash is a whites wash, even even then it is only usually a 40deg C one

Try the occasional light spray into the drawer void with antibacterial kitchen cleaner, it seems to reduce the growth a bit in mine between actual cleaning. I have thought of trying a bathroom mould remover, but keep putting it off as that might be a bit too bleaching. I have THOUGHT of using the clear shower spray, it keeps the mould down in shower stalls, so it might well help in there too - everytime I think about it, I forget to put a bottle near the washer!

Occasional 90deg washes kill it in the whole machine for a while, but it returns - one of the drawbacks of modern washers.

Ah! But you said the drawer!! Not the opening it slides into!

We use softener in those plastic balls that you put in the machine, seems to work just fine and no pouch to dissolve.

Cracking deal. Had my Bosch for years. No problems at all. Buy with confidence.

It's only a 5Kg load and a low spin speed - worth a few quid more for something larger

Thanks but they're made in Holland - if you want German quality then buy AEG

Tomtom ??? that must be correct then.

FYI
Nauen is a town in the Havelland district, in Brandenburg, Germany. It is situated 38 km west of Berlin (centre), and 26 km northwest of Potsdam.

I have also been there, and it is definately not in Holland - check any atlas.
