Washing Machines Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of washing machine would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Loving To Have
I wash a lot of blankets. I love washing in machines that clean good with simple controls and cycles. Bosch seems to be the one also the time and loudness means a lot to me.
Who needs a cleaner with this machine
We run a bed and breakfast so have a lot of linens and towels to wash in limited time. The Bosch meets our needs in every way. The available cycles allow a very useful range of options from quick but thorough washes to deep cleaning and almost sterilizing washes.
And no trips to the dry cleaning shop because the washer’s delicate cycles take perfect care of the clothes requiring special attention.
The spin speed options are excellent and depending on the speed the laundry can come out almost dry.
Water safety features such as automatic shutdown gives you peace of mind.
The Bosch is versatile to meet all of your laundry needs. No need for a cleaner;)
Great washing machine.
I have never been more satisfied and happy with other machines. This Bosch certainly does everything it says it does. The laundry comes out clean every time. Money worth spent. Thank you Bosch.

Fabulous Washing Machine
I have been converted from a top loader to a front loader and this Bosch washing machine is amazing. I love the quick wash at 15 minutes and the long ne’er wash cycles do a great job too. The adjustable spin cycle is great and so much better for our clothes. Highly recommended
Is the best machine, I can live without it. Best washing. And I bough.
I love my Bosch washing machine. Perfect washing every time. Very happy with this product very satisfied with all the cycles and very quiet.I high recommend if you can get a Bosch.
Purchased in February 2018 for $1,200.00.
Best Machine I've ever owned
I love this washing machine, I put on a mixed load which takes 1hr 10mins, or a quick load which is an impressive 18 minutes when I'm rushed and the results are always outstanding. It runs through the cycle so quietly and beeps at the finish to let you know your clothes are ready to hang out or place in your dryer.
I don't even use laundry bags any more for my delicates, as the Bosch is so gentle it's no longer necessary.
I wash everything from casual, to work clothes and even some 'hand wash only' items in my machine and they all come out clean and stain free every time. My old top loading machine of a different brand, used to fade some of my clothes or get caught and pull the clothes out of shape, I have never had an issue with this since purchasing my Bosch front loader. I will never buy another brand again.
This machines does everything cottons silks polyesters woollen and cleans them amazingly. The different features you can choose from have all appropriate settings . The time it takes for a load is also pretty good your not waiting for hours to get your washing complete .

Great value for money
Working on a farm for us usualy means relly dirty clothes, not any more what a great machine. Never have we had such an easy to use machine that washes away the stains and dirt so effortlesly. Highly recomend this machine to anyone who needs a heavy duty washer at a fraction of the cost. Wash cycles are fast and the spin cycle works great.
Purchased in January 2018 for $650.00.
Simply the best ever washing machine.
Used many of the wash cycles and all with excellent results and cycle times including cotton, mixed, delicate and quilts with very good cycle times. It is quiet during operation and has programmable start time so I can set it to wash during off peak times. It has features such as auto dosing of washing liquid and fabric softener called IDOS which saves handling time. Only have to add detergent and softener about every 2 months! Other features that are handy are being able to manually adjust dosages for more soiled items and the fact it can be paused if anything needs to be added. It has washed doonas and quilted bed spreads in a large load very competently.
Great Machine Very Happy
Purchased this front loader a couple of months ago after 25 years with a top loader. I was a bit nervous at first with all the different settings but have since found my way thanks to this site and YouTube.
Machine is so quite, detergent and water saving amazing. Selection of settings takes the guess work out of washing.
Cycle times can be too long but ‘Speed Perfect’ button solves this problem.
Only down side of a front loader in general is bending over to load and unload the machine and making sure I wipe the machine and leave the door ajar to prevent mold build up.
Cleanest clothes ever
Purchased 14 months ago, this is my first front loading washing machine. I love using less detergent, knowing it uses less water and electricity, and have noticed an improvement in removing stains. Very happy with my purchase.
Purchased in April 2018.
Perfect for the Job.
Brilliant Bosch! Washes extremely well!! We have found using Omo liquid detergent in the machine works brilliantly. Always open the door and leave to air when machine is not in use to avoid mould building up. Open the dispenser draw regularly to air for the same reason, avoiding mould. Wipe bottom of rubber seal after each wash. Also run a drum clean every couple of months, to maintain. Best quality & efficient washing machine I could find for the money. Excellent! Would highly recommend to anyone.
bought this for our family of 4. Big enough to take almost any load. very easy to use and its overall pretty quiet. has various different settings for different item of clothing that needs to be cleaned.
Quiet and efficient
I have had this washer for a week now and I am very happy with its performance. It is well built and designed with practical functions in mind. The iDos automatic washing detergent system is great - just fill the detergent draw with washing liquid and softener, select the level of washing required (light, medium or heavy soiling) and the washer does all of the dosing itself - it’s a great function that measures washing liquid as needed. The machine has a number of programs which can be selected dependent upon fabric type and it has so far performed to a very high standard. The machine is quiet and easy to operate with straight forward controls. The machine does not have an internal LED light which would be a welcome addition. The exterior design of the machine is understated which suits the average laundry context without looking like its out of place. The LED control panel display is simple and effective without being over-stated. The matching heat pump dryer is very effective and looks the part but is overly noisy with a ‘turbine’ noise that comes from the condenser unit after the first 3 minutes of run time - this is loud enough to be heard through a closed laundry door and is a disappointing aspect of an otherwise excellent dryer - see YouTube reviews of the dryer running for an idea of the noise level or ask salesperson at place of purchase to run the dryer for 5 minutes without interruption (the condenser switches on only after 3 minutes of run time). If the machine and dryer are located away from living areas then this should not be a drastic problem - if however the machines are going to be installed in an open plan area (eg apartment style open laundry/kitchen) then the dryer would not be suitable due to condenser noise - the washing machine is, on the other hand, very quiet in operation.
Quiet, cleans and quick!
The i-dos system is great and says goodbye to manual loading of detergents. I do three loads of laundry a week and all the clothes come out very clean. Be sure to use stain removers if washing stained garments. Love the cycle time when 'Speed Perfect' is activated, reducing the wash cycle to just one hour. There's also the eco mode that saves power and water - the cycle can take up to almost 4 hours for the eco mode. Sturdy build quality as you would expect from a made in Germany product.
Perfect Washing Machine
Our first time trying front load washing machine and we love it. This model Bosch washing machine is Made in Germany. The 9kg drum is big enough to serve 4 people in the household. it is easy to use and it comes with different features to cater for different type of washing. It is water efficiency as well.
Great so far
Easy to use , extremely quiet, wash cycles are very fast even on prewash and extra rinse. Automatic i’dos system takes a bit of getting used to but love it now
Well I cannot believe how bad this makes my old LG top loader look, some of my older cloths that stains I thought would never come out have since vanished.
Really good with larger items like Doona's ect, very quiet and I cannot believe how little liquid detergent it uses with the iDOS system.
Also even better value with the cash back offer, extremely impressed so far.
My only criticism would be the packing tape used on the front door its has extreme on it adhesive and removed some of the silver paint and subsequently marked the front door.
Bosch if you can find it in your heart to give me a new door that would be an awesome customer service experience.
This Washing Machine is amazing! Was extremely surprised how quiet the machine operates.
Five Washing loads in the first day everything worked well no errors.
Clothes smell great, the cycle doesn’t leave the clothes soaked, dryer doesn’t need long cycles to dry the clothes.
I would highly recommend this product!..aren’t like my Samsung experience.....
