  • AntiVibration™ side walls The design of the side walls is not only eye catching: the system also provides greater stability and reduces vibration. The enhanced insulation also regulates noise levels, making Bosch washing machines very quiet even during the spin cycle.

  • VarioPerfect™ Through its perfect program range, VarioPerfect ensures top wash results for all types of fabrics and every load. With VarioPerfect, you can set most programs to be quicker or more efficient with the SpeedPerfect and EcoPerfect functions. This reduces time by up to 65% or energy by up to 50%.
  • i-DOS detergent saver system Save water by saving detergent: the unique intelligent i-DOS detergent saving system determines the precise amount of liquid detergent. Special sensors detect the load weight and fabric type and even the degree of soiling in the automatic programmes. Your laundry will be washed with the optimal amount of detergent. By avoiding overusage you will also prevent additional rinse cycles to remove the soap scum from washing detergents. With i-DOS you save liquid detergent and up to 7,062 litres of water (potential annual saving when using i-DOS instead of household washing with manual dosage using a conventional sensitive programme at an average of 220 washing loads per year.* (*Source: wfk (The Cleaning Technology Institute), Institute of Applied Research, research report WL 5132/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quietest Washing Machine EverI bought the WAW32640AU washing machine in August this year. Before I bough this I used to have a Samsung one which I had paid at a premium proice. However the performance of that machine was well below my expectation and the worst is the annoying loud noise. After replacing the old machine with this one, I am really amazed on how silent a washing machine can be. It is unbelievable. Just the extreme low level of noise is already worth half the price tag. I have no hesitation to recommend to any one, particularly those with a family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet even on high spinMy AEG suddenly died so I was in need of something rather quickly. I asked the Washing machine fixer man what he would buy to replace it and he suggested Bosch. That says a lot for the brand. It has been brilliant so far. Highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Washing MachineBought this to replace an excellent top loader. Was sceptical re front loaders and their claims, especially dryness after spinning. This is the best machine I have ever owned. Cleans clothes better than the old one, spins drier, is economical on water and power, is gentler than the old machine - fantastic! Smooth and quiet also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machineI bought this to replace my trusty old LG machine. It has a great array of programs, and can be customised by altering the spin speed, temperature, etc. variables to suit your individual requirements. I particularly like the option to choose between "speed perfect" or "eco perfect" for each wash. I only deducted one star from "ease of use" because of the annoying child lock - the machine is otherwise fantastic. Pros: Lots of programs and variables, yet easy to use Clothes come out squeaky clean High spin speed is really effective at de-watering i-DOS system is really convenient and easy to use Quiet. Cons: Machine can still be switched off when child lock is on (it just prevents them from changing the program) Child lock is annoying/fiddly - can take several attempts to switch it off Clothes come out quite creased at highest spin speed (I tend to run at 1400 instead of 1600 to prevent this). The appliances online guys were fabulous. I ordered on a Friday and had the machine by Monday. They removed my old machine and installed the new one in no time... and they don't mind steps (unlike some of their competitors!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it!I am the proud new owner of the i-Dos 8.5kg front loader washing machine. It is a dream to use, quiet, efficient.... such a great upgrade from my cranky top loader which took most of the day to wash and rattled the house. So happy I chose my new Bosch product!
