Bosch 8kg Front Loading Washing Machine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy I have been thrilled with my new machine - fast clean washes - silent operation - great spin speed - there is nothing I have to bag about. After just starting to have problems with my 15 plus year front loader it has been a joy to wash with my new machine and to able to have the Television on at the same time. Well done Bosch I did not think I would shift my loyalty to another brand but you have got me - this is my third Bosch product in the last three years and all have been great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bosch WAT24261AU Review of Bosch WAT24261AU (Model only available from Harvey Norman in NZ) Owned 4 months Good: Very Quiet. Cleans well. Spins well. Neutral: Needs good water pressure, but turns the water off with a thump when there is enough. No 50°C program. For full loads takes too long to add enough water, (laundry is tumbling without being wet) so you either have to pour in more water through the powder dispenser, or you have to keep restarting it on the easy-care program, which seems to be the only one that adds more water first then asks questions later. Bosch recommend 3-4 loads of varying sizes per week over the supposed 20 year lifetime. With at least 8 large loads per week I will be lucky to get 7-8 years out of this. Very poor: No program suitable for blankets/towels/sheets. Dreadful: We are on tank water, and this machine makes too much foam with towels/blankets/sheets when used with tank water, even if only 1 teaspoon of front loader powder used. Have tried both cheap and expensive powder, same results foam alarm activated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase Love my new washing machine! Works really well has heaps of settings but is really user friendly. Very delicate on clothes. Very happy with the delivery service too as they took my old washing machine away which I wasn't looking forward to dealing with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and quiet As stated the spin is much more quiet. I have gone up a kilo so much larger barrel and notice that the smaller load does thump round in the larger barrel - that's OK. This model has a drain/spin cycle :-). At the end of the cycle the beep is heard and the door can be immediately opened. All the programme used so far I have been able to programme to my way of washing e.g spin speed , water temperature. Have had it 4 weeks and very happy with the larger barrel & easy to operate. Only 2 in the house most times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine We have bought this just over a month ago and it washes much better than our F&P top loader. It has quite a lot of programs and features, very easy to operate.
