Hmmm so that means it's probably made by Arcelik (don't snigger, they make Beko) or Vestel

Doubt it - but why worry - it'll be reasonable quality and probably designed in Germany so just take the advantage of lower price if they get cheaper labour to screw it together.

2 Year warranty and, if it's like my recent Bosch purchase, they'll offer you a genuine Bosch 5 year warranty for an extra £99 if you're concerned.

For comparison, Co-op's 5 year extension is £125.94, which I think is pricey, but they state "Our warranties cost you exactly what they cost us".
This machine also has the brushless Bosch EcoSilence drive motor (a bit like Beko's prosmart inverter motor) which comes with a 10 year warranty.

Arcelik is Beko (called Beko in the UK market for obvious reasons!) Vestel also Turkish but big rivals. I’d imagine Bosch will have or use a factory in Turkey, but Bosch do not use Turkish parts to build it, they only use their own BSH parts.
My similar Bosch washing machine purchase says it was made in Poland.

It's not an issue: VWs are made in South Africa, Mercs in USA, Suzukis in India, even Hondas in Swindon! It's the design, engineering and factory processes which matter, not the nationality of the person screwing them together. The statistics suggest Germans aren't exceptionally good at this: that Swindon Honda or Derbyshire Toyota is likely to be more reliable than a Bavarian BMW!.

Let's hope so, I suppose it doesn't matter but I like to know who makes what and these days it's very hard to keep track. Most electronics made in Turkey seem to be either Vestel or Arcelik in origin.

I have no problem with where something is made as long as it's made well with decent parts. So many products are not made by the name on the front... so many brands don't really exist these days unfortunately.

My Panasonic fridge is made in Turkey by Arcelik, so far it's been fine but I just know it won't be as well made as good old Japanese stuff used to be

Don't kid yourself, what you get now is HOTPOINT quality! they are all part of bsh-group.com/

I just bought Miele and am well and truly disappointed with that, but at least there is a trace of some remnant of reputation, but I was not suckered into thinking a new Siemens machine was going to be anything like the 12yo Siemens machine it replaced if it was made by Hotpoint in Turkey! :-(
good deal

Calling anything 'Hotpoint quality' is an enormous insult - and not true in this case. Bosch/Siemens/Neff are decent mid-market brands with a reasonable reputation for quality (see Which?). Nothing to do with the despicable Hotpoint (Whirlpool) US corporation which continues to offer appaling service to those affected by the tumble dryer fiasco.

BEKO also offers good value.

Miele does have an above average record of reliability (though not of washing performance), but at vastly inflated prices. Hard to justify when they are 2 or 3 times the price of decent brands like Bosch.

We all want great products but if they were to be as durable as those in 'the good old days' they'd be a multiple of today's prices. As long as people only look at the asking price and not the service life it will continue. My previous, cheap Bosch lasted 12 years - I hope my new one will but I have some doubts. My tumble dryer is 38 years old and has had one repair <£2!

At least with Hotpoint you know where they are made - To be honest when made in Turkey or made in Poland become a desirable thing, Bosch might be happy to label their goods clearly, whereas now you just about have to dismantle the things to find where they originate! :-(

It not like going to a shop and having a look at the model on display will help, two models notionally the same can come from different countries, I suppose you can wait until it is delivered and send it back if it comes from anywhere but Germany!

It says "Made in Poland" in clear english on a label, along with other information. You seem a bit confused, frankly. There is no commonality with Hotpoint whatsoever. Bet Hotpoint wouldn't offer you a five year warranty for £99 - they couldn't afford ity! Instead they operate a real scam by offering a 10 year parts warranty (the cheap bit) but conditional on you using their awful and expensive engineers to fit them.

And you are the one who is unhappy with a Miele.

What I said was "Bosch/Siemens/Neff are decent mid-market brands with a reasonable reputation for quality (see Which?)."


You clearly don't agree, so let the market decide!
So in summary then the upmarket brands i.e. Miele, Siemens, Bosch, Neff, LG and Samsung are made in Poland whilst everything else is Made in Turkey or China? Nothing made in Spain, Italy, Germany or the UK anymore?
i opened a tin of worms here..
Does anyone have any advice/view on this Bosch vs. the LG at the same price at Hughes & JL - hotukdeals.com/dea…817

For me there are more compelling reasons to go for the LG over the Bosch.

1. I am convinced LG are more technically advanced. I think having a separate on/off button and separate temperature controls allows for easier and a more flexible user experience.

2. All this talk about quiet about inverter motors and being very quiet etc. LG are way ahead of the game in this respect. When these machines arrived on our shores nearly 20 years ago they stood out immediately. Brushless DC Motors (shortly afterwards to be superseded by their patented Direct Drive), low noise, low vibration, high quality hinges, door latches and modern electronic displays with quality buttons at a time when rival manufacturers were years behind. They have always been extremely reliable. While the rivals have been playing catch-up LG continues to innovate to the next level e.g. Centum, NFC diagnosis, touch screen etc.

3. The 5 Year Warranty (with 10 on the motor) speaks volumes. With the Bosch you'll need to factor in a further £99.

4. Although the LG is no longer available for £374, at £399 it is stunning value for money. NB now sold out in John Lewis so grab it while you can in Hughes. Everyone else is charging between £529 and £599 for this model. You're getting a stylish double glazed door, which makes it even when quieter than before, an attractive and easy to use white LED interface, steam functionality and a wide choice of programs including spin only.

5. What's the Bosch got that the LG hasn't?
Got my lg from Currys for the 379 with a 5 year warrenty, beats anything else hands down really. Quiet too! I do at least 2 loads a day so it works out cheaper than buying a cheap brand that lasts a year or 2

I didn't enter a finishing date. I have just checked the email and it ended 26.1.18, so have expired.
