When choosing a washing machine we wanted to be sure that our new washing machine was energy and water efficient (being in a water metered house).
We bought this Bosch model as it was A rated and that Bosch has always been reliable. Although initially smaller than we thought being able to hold 4.5Kg (rather than the standard 6Kg models), we have found it to be produce excellent, clean washes. The depth of the unit is about half that of regular models and can save space.
A standard wash and spin will complete in about an hour and a half. The spin dry is quite good at 1200rpm and doesnt leave clothes too wet. In my opinion it could be a little quieter during the spin cycle, but this is probably the same as most washers.
The waterline is well below the level drum, as it is barely visible during washing, helping to save money per cycle.
The program dials are easy to use, although a delay timer would have been useful so that the washing can start during the off peak energy hours.
Due to the smaller size of the drum, I would reccomend this washing machine for small families or individuals only and where space is at a premium.
