Is it Time to Replace your Washing Machine?

How long should a washing machine last? On average, the lifespan of a washing machine is 11 years. If your washing machine is more than eight years old, it is time to consider getting a new appliance as components like the drum, pump or motherboard may soon be in need of spare parts replacement.

Here are 4 common washing machine problems that may be signs you need a new washing machine.

Your Clothes Are Not Properly Washed

The first sign that your washing machine needs to be replaced is a decline in cleaning performance. If your washing machine is more than 8 years old, it may be time to consider getting a new one.

You Start to Notice an Odour

This could be caused by a build-up of mildew or mold, as the self-cleaning function of the washing machine deteriorates and regular cleaning maintenance has not been upheld.

Your Washing Machine is Leaking

Be sure to check that the hoses are tightly screwed in, and that the washing machine has not been overloaded. If leaking continues, there could be a crack in the tub. In this case, it could be more cost effective to replace your old washing machine rather than repair it.

It Makes a Lot of Noise

A noisy washing machine may indicate that there are issues with the drum or motor. If the washing machine repair cost is too high, buying a new washing machine might be a cheaper solution.

Bosch: Uncompromising Quality

Before our washing machines leave our factory, we test every tiny detail and subject them to endless stress tests. We test them with 16,000kg of washing, which they must wash and dry – not just any old how, but perfectly. Because only when every one of the 1,000 or so components in our washing machines meets our high standards of function, quality and reliability 100%, is a Bosch appliance ready to face its most important challenge: being used by you at home.

This is a reason why Bosch was named Best Brand for washing machines by CHOICE® in 2017, as equal top performer in the category. What’s more, Bosch washing machines come with a 2-year warranty for defects in materials and workmanship and a 10-year motor warranty on washing machine models that feature the EcoSilence Drive®.

From cleaning performance and energy efficiency, to intelligent features and specialised wash programs — here are the reasons you should choose a Bosch front load washing machine.

Integrated sensors measure the load volume in the drum, fabric type, degree of soiling and water hardness before dosing the detergent automatically — precise to the nearest millilitre, saving you up to 7,062 litres^ of water each year.

Frequently Asked Questions

You asked, we answered — discover our FAQ section for washing machines here.

Front Load vs. Top Load — Which washing machine is better?

There are two types of washing machines generally available in the market today — the front load washing machine and the top load washing machine. The front load washing machine model is the gold standard for laundry care as it is a water efficient and energy efficient washing machine, and uses less detergent. Front load washing machines use a tumble wash action, which is similar to hand washing and helps to minimise wear and tear on your clothes, while ensuring a deep clean. Top load washing machine models are more suitable for households who seek convenient loading and unloading of laundry.

Which washing machine capacity do I need?

Household size and frequency of laundry cleaning are two important factors when it comes to choosing the drum size of your washing machine. If you are a small family, a 7 or 8 kg front load washing machine should be sufficient to meet your needs. If you have a household of more than four, choose a 9 or 10 kg washing machine.

How can I get rid of common laundry stains?
