How reliable are Bosch Washing Machines?

At the higher end of their range Bosch build excellent, reliable washing machines.
There is nothing terribly exciting about them - although they do have some hi-tech features.

Bosch make compact washers, suitable for smaller spaces, and several larger than average machines - ideal for families
with tons of washing - but check the dimensions before buying - to make sure it will fit into your space.

Mid-range Bosch machines offer probably the best value on the market.

At the lower end, Bosch use some cheaper components - to get the price down - and the jury is still out on just
how reliable these machines will be. We highly recommend the mid and high end of the Bosch range.
We are still conducting long-term research on the newer, cheaper models.

Our Washing Machine Repair Man says...
The mid and high end of the Bosch range is first-class. I would definitely have one in my own home.
The lower priced models are fitted with some "generic" non-Bosch components,
which gives me some cause for concern. However, I seriously doubt that Bosch would risk their hard won reputation
by building anything that was unreliable.

We also recommend
Currys for their prices and their delivery times. However, customer service could be a lot better. We have
phoned them several times and have been on hold for around an hour each time. is also a company that keeps it promises regarding delivery times, and their customer service is excellent.

Appliances Direct also have a good selection of quality products at reasonable prices. Delivery is usually reliable, but we have
had experience of them altering delivery dates by several days after we have placed an order.
