This machine beeps so loudly for minutes after each cycle I want to burn it
The machine washes ok, but leaks inccessantly. It is only 2 years old
What is most annoying is that the it beeps very loudly, waking me up, for minutes after the cycle finishes. It is the most ridiculous annoying feature I have come across in an appliance.
Purchased in July 2018 for A$1,000.00.
Great washing machine
Love that the washing machine gives me all the settings for my different washing loads. Washing comes out feeling fresh and clean. Has an excellent spin cycle. I haven’t lost any socks.

Its a bit expensive and bit complicated to use
Bosch is a good brand but its a bit expensive.Had use fisher and paykel before so thought would go for a change.It's a bit complicated to use and had to read the leaflet every now and then.Size is good.Fits in small spaces but drum look a bit small.
excellent washing machine
This is the first front loader I have owned and previously for 20+ years I have used top loader washing machines. Very happy with the way it cleans clothes, it is quiet and seems efficient. Overall very happy.
If i had to give a negative it would be it is low and need to bend or kneel to put washing in or remove. I know you can buy a stand but it is just an extra expense. I would by again as it is very economical and is german made and seem to be very high quality. The only other negative is if on a normal wash without time saver function on the wash time can be 3 hours. With the was time saver on it is around an hour.
So far so good
This machine cops an absolute flogging and does it with ease. Replaced a Panasonic 10 kg which was a piece of junk and only just outlasted the warranty. The Bosch is only just over a year old but has not missed a beat and is as near to perfect as you can get. It is worth a few extra bucks to get the real German made Bosch units.
So far so good, three months in and it's been great
My previous front loader - the Fisher and Paykel WH8560 didn't last four years - twice during this time it put black, greasy marks on clothes and sheets and also shredded some clothes. The service people were terrific and fortunately I had taken out the extra warranty with Product Care at Harvey Norman, but bottom line was it didn't do what it was supposed to do. It also had a very annoying habit of thinking for itself and a wash which had any quilting, padding etc (like pillow protectors, mattress protectors etc) could take half a day for one ...load - to the point where I'd pull it out sopping wet and take it to my dad's washing machine to spin dry. So I didn't want to get another Fisher and Paykel, but I couldn't afford a Miele. After much research we settled on the BoschWAW284420AU because it was made in Germany - a lot of the other Bosch models are made in China, because it had the option to add a garment, because it was on sale at Harvey Norman (we purchased it for around $1,400), because you can programme ahead to wash and because it had a good name. After nearly three months I can say I am happy with it. Bizarrely the drum isn't as big as the F&P even though it's supposed to be 9kg and the other was 8.5kg. This is annoying for when I wash the towels, but I've worked out a way around it. I put as many towels in as I can and then start the load. After it's been going a few minutes and wet everything I press to add a garment, and add the extra towel(s). What I don't like about it is that the F&P had a delayed start of five or fifteen minutes, then in hourly increments, but the Bosch starts at an hour. I used to like to delay for fifteen minutes, so I could have a shower and then it would start without me having to come out and do it. Or when I had added a stain removal spray. But I do like that it heats its own hot water so that it doesn't interrupt the water when you are showering. Also it is extremely sturdy. Reviews I have read say that it is quiet, however I actually thought the F&P was quieter. Not that it's overly noisy, but you can hear it when it's on. It seems to spin dry well and the towels come out softer than the F&P. It has two short washes - 15 minutes and 30 minutes.

Our first FL and so far its not been good. This thing jumps around so bad on the spin cycle that I have to lay on top of it like riding a bucking bronco. Its levelled correctly and the feet are tight.
Will be calling Bosch Help first thing Monday :( But has anyone else had this problem
