great value although I was told that Bosch machines have become very difficult to repair and that Beko, despite their hiccup are very good machines which are simple to fix after a few years.

I'd take a bosch over beko any day, much better quality.

Good price I'd pay more for a 1600rpm though if funds allow?

Voted hot for price, though bare in mind higher service cost for bosch, just two years warranty (as five that you can get with Samsung). Also 1200rpm could be a bit less. But for those who dont mind this it seems great price from reputated retailer

Where can you buy a Samsung with a 5 year guarantee for £249?

No where, but I will prefer spending Extra £ with additional guarantee and get a better machine. Still voted hot as it's not for me but great price for what looks like good machine

Yup - 1600 rpm makes a huge difference if funds allow.

1400 rpm and 9kg for same price - Hotpoint

Hotpoint vs Bosch, 1 year warranty vs 2 years... I would rather choose Bosch for better quality and longer warranty

My Bosch washing machine was running rough - narrowed problem down to the drum bearings. Had a look and a replacement set for Bosch was about £10-£15 on ebay. Except new Bosch drums are sealed units so its £200 for a replacement - with brand new quality branded machines around for about £50 more I decided it'd be better to buy a new machine and scrapped it. Wasn't long out of warranty either. Guy I spoke to at the repair centre said these days Bosch is simply living on its reputation.

So I'd recommend that extended warranty ;-)

does anyone know when Bosch started doing sealed units/bearings thanks

Voted hot at this price - pity it is from JL as their home delivery/ online ordering service is a shambles - they twice cancelled my delivery and never sought to arrange another delivery. I will never use them again

Had my last Hotpoint for the past 13 years without any problems. Warranty not really an issue for me. If i wanted warranty I would have gone for Samsung.

Excellent washing machine. Purchased one not too long ago. Well worth getting!

The Samsung warranty is only an insurance policy from D&G nothing more. They employ zero engineers and parts can be a nightmare to obtain on machines older than a couple of years.

Bosch make machines for all budgets and this is their cheapest machine. If you want or need better then there are models available, all the way to over £600

Which models are Bosch washers are still made in Germany? I seem to recall those are the ones which are actually made "properly"

You may have had an unusually bad time for whatever reason, but that really world be cutting your nose of to spite your face. JL aftercare I have always found to be second to none, and they give you the extra warranty period. No brainer to me.

HOT!

Now that Bosch are part of the Bosch Siemens group I think the Bosch brand is catering more and more toward the lower end of the market whilst Siemens machines seem to be positioned as the higher quality offering. This £249 machine will be a Spanish made Balay machine and if you are buying to replace your trusty old Bosch you may find yourself disappointed a few years down the line.

I've heard this also...

7kg load is fine ...but 1200 spin? Useless.
All machines in shop so-called 'deals' invariably tend to be 1200 spin.

Wouldn't touch anything unless it was 1600 spin.

Very useful comment from person who never bothered to post a deal...

It's not all about the spin. Plus, a higher spin puts more pressure on the machine.

Don't get too caught up in that. If you google you can find a few test of spin speeds online and the diference between a 1200 and 1600 can be as little as 3-5% more moisture extracted by the faster spin. When you factor in the extra cost, noise and the wear on the machine I'm not sure it is really worth solely basing a purcahse on it.

Our Bosch (purchased at approx £500 )is just over 2 years old (and out of warranty) and bearings are gone.
Leaking oil has trashed several clothes already.
Advised repair v costly and economically not worth it.

I don't think Bosch are a high end manufacturer like they used to be, and are trading on their past reputation.

Back to Miele as wife swears these wash better anyway.

Just ordered this for £ 599

coopelectricalshop.co.uk/Mie…0-W

Via Quidco £50 off and 2% cash back

5 year manufacturers parts and labour warranty included.

Given my Bosch's 2.5 yr lifespan this works out just about as cost effective, and if I,m lucky the Miele will go on and on.

A+++ they really need to to adjust the energy rating bands

Does anyone have one of these?

Our Bosch machine has been a disappointment in that it does not spin properly, clothing comes out still quite wet.

Had an engineer out when it was new who said it was normal and so did customer services.

Not really an issue in summer but on winter it takes forever to dry in the spin dryer.

Samsung, so what if the guarantee is an insurance cover, why is this an issue?

A PS The 7KG apparently can only be used in the cotton setting which takes 3,5 hours, does anyone know what the weight limit is on the other settings.

low and behold my bosch has given up and even after repairs that only lasted two weeks it is time to get a new one after 13 years of service.
