So far impressed!

published

This is our 3rd front loader so we are used to minimum water usage, long cycles and quality washing outcomes. Our last Whirlpool was still going after 16 years of daily grind so this one has big shoes to fill. The German made model is hopefully better built than the MIL's 10 year old Taiwanese built Maxx Classic which had early and ongoing balance problems due to pathetic, expensive and difficult to replace shock absorbers.
Pros:
Large opening door.
Super quiet operation.
Minimal vibration or balance issues so far.
1400 rpm spin option means clothes need less drying time.
Can interrupt and add.
Cons:
Large door limits height of basket when emptying unless on a raised plinth.
No spin or drain only option- only 18 minute rinse and spin.

Purchased in March 2020 at The Good Guys for A$1,044.00.

Great efficient washing machine

published

Has a big selection of cycles to choose from such as gentle to mix loads. Quick wash completes in 15 mins and does the job. Great build quality and a big bonus being made in Germany.

Great machine

The only problem l have with my new machine is that at the end of a cycle there is a small puddle of water on the rubber so when I take out the washed clothes they get wet again because you have to lift them over the puddle.

Great machine so far

published

This machine is super quiet, large capacity makes it a breeze washing quilts. Two points why I won’t give it 5 stars;
Firstly the instruction manual is fairly poorly written, very limited info and had to find out some of the features online by other users.
The second point more importantly it leaves a large puddle of water at the rubber seals edge, when you open the door water spills out onto our floor boards. Purchased 10-May-2020.

Excellent machine

Did a lot of research before deciding on this machine and couldn't be happier with the result. Very good washing machine with many features. It also operates very quietly. Good buy.

Serie 8 WAW28440AU

Just bought this model and it shakes uncontrollably during spin. Was on 1200. Me and my husband had to both hold it down. Any tips? The machine is level too.

Can you open the door once the wash has started to add a sock that you dropped along the way?

Hi Chrissie,
Thanks for your question regarding the Bosch WAW28440AU.
As per page 40 of your user manual it is possible as long as the water level or temperature is not too high. The appliance door won't be able to open if it is unsafe.
If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744.
Regards,
Bosch Home Australia

Hi Raelene,
Thanks for your question regarding the Bosch WAW28440AU.
Page 31 of you user manual has the instructions. You want the Rinse / Spin function. The Rinse Plus button is set by default for this program. If you require a spin cycle only, press the button to deactivate the function.
If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744.
