This is entry level Bosch washing machine and as so there are cheaper alternatives. In this case you are paying £30 extra just for a name.

We have the equivalent machine from 6 years ago. Hasn`t missed a beat in that time.

Great price for a Bosch! Drum is too small for families would probabily have gone for this if i didn't get my similar spec indesit for £189.

Our 5kg Bosch lasted 12 years and stopped working last week. Replaced it with a Bosch 12000rpm 7kg A++ for £350 @ John Lewis

My bottom of the range Bosch has been 100% reliable for 9 years so far, requiring no attention whatsoever. Gets used about 5 or 6 times a week. It's well worth paying for this.

On the other hand, I was very disappointed with battery life on my 18v Bosch cordless drill.

Just for the name lol? and the unquestionable reliability. Just thought you should mention that.

Laundry and hard work, ladies must love you.

sold by currys so no more

Great, reliable machine had mine over 7 years now. Only niggle is there is no half-load option.

5.5kgs being quite a small load also contributes to reliability, as there is less strain on it. You also know that bosch isnt going bust so spares will be available in future. Its so easy to get ripped off with a cheap brand that breaks in a year and has no spares available. I would want to make sure though that it has a metal outer drum, as many cheaper machines have plastic ones that can break if you end up with coins in them. This killed my last washer twice.

Be aware that the bottom of the range Bosch machines like this one are made in Spanish, Polish and Chinese factories these days. To get a German built one you are talking £600+.

Yes, you get the name. Yes, you get the after sales support. But don't expect German quality.

Still reasonable value for money though.

What are you talking about??? So what if they are made not in Germany? Bosch is Bosch ,wherever it has been made. They value their name and keeps high standards in all manufacturing countries.
By the way,most well known manufacturers are using cheap labour in third world countries. I don't see a problem here.

Nope.

The quality of Bosch machines has fallen over recent years. Bosch used to be a mid range brand but now they are competing with the likes of Beko and Hotpoint on price.

Bosch now own Siemens; this is their mid-top range brand; Bosch is pitched somewhere below this.

Don't take my word for it. Check out the comments from professionals on the web, especially on places like the washerhelp .co .uk forum.

Don't wanna argue with you,but you are wrong.
All comments and reviews can be done for money and as so are not reliable. Using my Bosch washer for 14 years and still going strong. Didn't heard anything bad about them from dozens of people owning them.
If I have money-will buy Bosch(wherever it has been assembled) . If I don't have money- will buy Beko. No chance to compare those two brands,as it would sound as comparing Mercedes with Vauxhall-different class ,mate.

Excellent machine. Price is best on Internet, unless you know better.

Do your research!

Low end Bosch machines are made by a company called Balay in Spain; they also have a factory in Lotz (Poland) and another in China all making cheap machines for the European market.

Reviews by professionals (ie people who fix these machines and know what they are talking about) say that the quality has declined over the past few years.)

Perhaps someone who buys one of these machines could take a look at the sticker on the back and tell us where it was made?

It will NOT have "Made in Germany" on the back!

Edit: For anyone interested, this is where Spanish "Bosch" machines are made:

en.wikipedia.org/wik…%29

Bosch obviously don't announce this from the rooftops, but it's well known within the industry. Google if you think I'm wrong!

I'm not wrong. Google if you don't believe me.

Things have changed in the 14 years since your machine was made.

Low end Bosch machines are made by a Spanish company called 'Balay'; I don't want people thinking these cheap Bosch machines are something that they aren't. They are not 'German' quality and they are not 'built to last', unlike 14 years ago.

Tread with caution!

I would expect a lot to change in 14 years indeed, so not a valid argument to mention something as old.
Nowadays, there are just a handful of goods manufactured in Germany and Japan.

And no, the quality is not the same no matter where is made.

Again with the warranty, Bosch is sold in other countries with 5 years warranty, why not here, do not know.
With 5 years, at least you know why pay more.

I don't think China will be happy about being referred to as a 'Third World Country!'

Just to be nerdy for a second the terms first, third world were failed propaganda terms from the cold world.

First world countries were The US, Western European Democracies, Australia etc

Second world referred to communist, or Stalinist states such Cuba, Russia and China#

And Third world countries were everything that didn't quite fit in the above 2 categories

Second world, never really caught on though which is why now we never hear of it.

Pointless post. Do you know better price for Bosch WAB 28060GB ?
And tell me: how many of your household appliances are made in Japan or Germany? Are they crap if not made in Japan or Germany?
All our Samsung Galaxy S3 , iPhone 5 are made in Korea or China and still we love them. Samsung TVs are made in Korea and stil are among best selling in the market.

You're very touchy. Best selling doesn't mean good quality.
How many are made in Japan or Germany? Already answered that, you didn't even read my post and yet you comment on it So I quote again for you: "Nowadays, there are just a handful of goods manufactured in Germany and Japan."

But I stick to my point, that your argument about what happened 14 years ago is no longer relevant.

Love Bosch washing machines, but I would search for one with decent warranty and made where I want it to be, if I have the choice.

PS: I do have a few made in Japan electronics... Canon cameras, Technics audio. Can I see the difference? Oh yeah, and so can the manufacturers from Turkey, Korea, China. Remember those components for mainboards called capacitors, that all quality mainboards praise about having them MADE IN JAPAN ? And the shortage the explosions and floodings/earthquake in Japan created on the market? So everybody knows there is a big difference between made in Japan and made in China.

^^^^^ clueless!

This is turning into an apple/android style thread! Dont be so polarised, neither extreme is correct. Yes cheap bosch is not as good as expensive bosch, but its not like its actually candys branded as bosch. They will obviously have cheaper components. Even the mighty dewalt has brought out a range of rubbish drills to trade on their name. Even so, this is a better purchase than a candy/beko POS. I 'splashed out' and spent 400 on a siemens. Its a blinder.
