How it works

Get brilliant wash results every time with the Bosch 8kg Front Load Washing Machine. With an 8kg capacity and 10 washing functions, this front load washing machine is perfect for tackling the varying challenges of larger households.

ActiveWater Plus

ActiveWater Technology consists of three components: the sensor-controlled, continuous automatic load adjustment, the optimised water induction and the drum system. To avoid water wastage, the sensor adjusts the exact water consumption to the wash, according to the fabric type and quantity. The laundry is soaked faster and more evenly through the optimised water inflow which is particularly mild and gentle. Thanks to the VarioSoft or Vario drum and its droplet-shaped structure and paddles, the water gets distributed more evenly and faster. ActiveWater washing machines make a significant contribution to efficient water management in your home.

VarioPerfect: Washing more quickly or efficiently

Through its perfect program range, VarioPerfect ensures top wash results for all types of fabrics and every load. With VarioPerfect, you can set most programs to be quicker or more efficient with the SpeedPerfect and EcoPerfect functions. This reduces time by up to 65% or energy by up to 50%.

AntiVibration sidewall: more stability and less vibration

The new design of the side walls is not only eye catching: the system also provides more stability and reduces vibration. The enhanced insulation also regulates noise levels, making it extemely quiet even during the spin cycle.

  • ActiveWater™ Plus: saves water and costs thanks to a stepless automatic load adjustment system.
  • EcoSilence Drive™ friction-free motor minimises heat and wear for long-lasting performance, quiet operation and perfect wash results.
  • VarioPerfect™: high performance programmes which allow you to clean your laundry with 20% less energy or reduce cleaning time by 65%
  • 4 Energy Star rating and 5 Water Stars reduces environmental impact, and cuts down on running costs.
  • VarioDrum's breakthrough wave-droplet design provides a thorough yet gentle clean for fine textiles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TRUE GREAT FEATURES. OPEN DOOR LIGHT COMES ON WOW Just been delivered, easy, my last Bosch front loader, 20 years, just gave up, so sad, but this one is great, sound proof, no crashing and banging, (the old days). The quick wash 15 mins is great. The guys who delivered Good Guys were so helpful, and guess what I have waited 20 years for this, I actually forgot some floor cloths and the machine had started, I remember I use to get so annoyed, BUT NO MORE, I JUST PRESS A BUTTON, yes u can OPEN THE DOOR, HALLELUJAH. It is so jazzy, like a brand new car, got all the whistles and bells. Thank you Bosch and the Good Guys in the Tweed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from WAW28441AU Germany I've had my machine for 3 weeks and just discovered there is no spin cycle. Spin only exists within a cycle. Therefore when i handwash for e.g. gym gear, i cannot spin dry. This is a basic feature and for this reason i have overlooked it. I've never had a machine without a separate spin cycle. This machine only has rinse and spin and fills up with water and takes 19 minutes. Very disappointed. Otherwise, it is very quiet and so far doesn't move when it spins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This review ONLY applies to the German model We were fortunate to get one of the last German-constructed models. The remainder were apparently constructed in Thailand where there have been quality control issues with end-users sending machines back for repair prematurely. Our model is working well, no problems. So this review ONLY applies to the German-constructed model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Lint! I love my new front loader washing machine. The last two top loading washing machines only smothered lint all over my dark clothes.....I had enough! This machine is quiet, quick and my clothes are lint free and smell beautiful and clean! I love it to bits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is my third Bosch washing machine and I love it! Lots of different wash program and I love the beep signal to advise when a load is finished. Can easily change settings for a lower spin cycle. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yet another new Washing Machine I bought a Bosch Washing Machine as a couple of friends recommended it. So far, after one day of continual washing I am very impressed with it - quiet, quick and the clothes come out clean.
