Bosch 9kg Front Loading Washing Machine is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super quiet & washes clothes very well! We bought this machine about a month ago. We researched & wanted a machine that was quiet as we have an outdoor laundry. We are really happy with our purchase. Lots of options for washing cycles. My favourite is the ‘mix’ wash done in 45 mins. We love that the unit is quiet. Clothes wash very well. The only drawback is how low to the ground the unit is as we have a dryer stacked on top. You do have to bend down very low to fill the machine & remove clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy i had been recommended by various friends (and my washing machine repair man) to buy a Bosch front loader when my old top loader could no longer be fixed. I was hesitant to make the switch but after reading all the reviews decided to buy this model. So glad I did - this machine is super quite, looks great and my clothes do come out cleaner and drher. It did take me 3 or 4 washes to get the hang of the functions. It was great to be able to call Bosch direct and ask a few questions & so glad I did as now making the most this machine has to offer. Would highly recommend Bosch for product and service. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results So glad we switched from a top loader to a front loader, clothes look and feel so much cleaner. We did a fair bit of research before we purchased this model and I’m happy to say that we definitely made the right choice. Highly recommend. Great range of settings and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine Bought this Bosch 9Kg Model over a year ago to replace or prior Bosch model which lasted 16 years and was still going well when we sold it (Trademe). This machine is excellent, It's very quiet and does a fantastic job of washing our cloths. It uses very little wate and very little detergent. No point in usinf fabric softener as everything comes out perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good Great machine. I went from an old school F & P Top Loader to this. Just don't put as much detergent in as you would a Top Loader. Otherwise it can get extra sudsy. Make sure it's balanced too! Use a level to do so. Have the time shortening button thingy on. I think it defaults to that anyway. Otherwise the loads are set to over 2 hours which is crazy. It shortens it down to 45 mins and just over an hour usually. Quite happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bosh front loader The machine is easy to use , similar to my old model but with a few changes. What you do need to remember is that it must be levelled correctly or it will be out of balance when it spins. I found this difficult to do as a female living on my own, because of its weight when trying to move it. Harvey Norman delivered the machine the following day after my order was made but could not set it up in the laundry because of the lock down. It had to be left at the door.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet machine Great quiet machine but small inside compared to 7kg top loader I use to have. But I do love that it makes the clothes smell so much better and so many features to choose from. U only need cold water attachment which is great as the machine heats water but we only use that when cleaning the machine.
