Bosch 9kg Front Loading Washing Machine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from idos is not worth it Overall Great machine. I have been using it for 1 year and 4 months. However i-Dos is not working well. Detergent or fabric softner is often congealed and I often clean i-Dos dispenser and try to remove clogged detergent from the dispenser, that was really hard and time consuming job and the i-Dos is still not dispensing well. If detergent part is not despensing, I can just put the dergernt in manual part when it starts. but you know what? if the fabric softer part is not working, you have to run to the machine and put fabric softer manually at the exact time of last rinse cycle. How frustrated it is. I should have bought the other machine without idos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this machine. I purchased this machine after extensive research, there are just so many washers out there it can get rather confusing. I'm a first time front loader owner and don't think I'd ever go back to a top loader, having already decided this after only a week of using the new washer. This machine washes so much cleaner than my old machine, is easy to use, quiet and efficient. The i-DOS is a terrific, convenient function, and along with the energy efficiency and water rating, was also a contributing factor in choosing the new washer. Love this machine and highly recommend to anyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great specs for a washing machine Purchased this for 3 main factors: outstanding water efficiency, excellent energy efficiency, and made in Germany. Reasonable price point. Have only had it for 3 weeks but so far so good. Very easy to use. The wash settings were customisable for our household's use/liking. I would prefer the internal washing drum to be a single metal part (rather than having plastic inserts within the metal drum) like our previous Whirlpool machine. Time will tell if this type of drum makes it more prone to breakages as it ages. But otherwise - very happy with this purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Washing Machine I bought this machine after extensive research - I considered technical specifications as well as user reviews. It replaced an 8 year old model and I couldn't be happier. Very easy to use, love the i-Dos capability, massive capacity and so quiet. My clothes have come out clean and fresh. The one big difference I have noticed is that the fast spin (1400 rpm) means my clothes dry much more quickly (big difference for sheets and towels particularly). It's very sturdy and well built and I love doing my laundry. Really an excellent machine with some awesome features.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really disappointed We have had the machine for 17months and the pump has blocked. Replacement parts from Germany currently take 8++ weeks. Bosche do not provide a temporary replacement so very costly. When the filter blocks the overflow pipe doesn't drain and to empty the machine it floods the floor and water gets into the machine itself which requires a service call out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality washing maching My mother has had a similar Serie 8 model for years so I decided on this one. It's obvious when you first see the machine that it's a high quality product. I've been using it now for 2 months and couldn't be happier. I just love the auto dispenser for detergent, I only have to fill it up once in that time. Clothes come out super clean and dry with no fuss. The spin speed setting are great too, I can use a lower speed for my business shirts and theyre easy to iron. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs It's been a long time since I've had to buy a washing machine, and they've come a long way in the mean time. This machine is perfect for my needs, flexible yet simple to use, quiet, energy efficient, and does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine and very quiet We had a Bosch machine that lasted over 8 years but sadly died. This model is a huge step up in terms of quietness of wash, even during spinning. The fill and forget iDOS function makes it even quicker and easier, just pop the load in and start. The allergy function is also a big bonus given our children are still young and this is very useful to have. The energy efficiency and water rating was also a big factor in choosing the new washer. Love this machine and would recommend to anyone.
