  • ActiveWater Plus ActiveWater Technology consists of three components: the sensor-controlled, continuous automatic load adjustment, the optimised water induction and the drum system. To avoid water wastage, the sensor adjusts the exact water consumption to the wash, according to the fabric type and quantity. The laundry is soaked faster and more evenly through the optimised water inflow which is particularly mild and gentle. Thanks to the VarioSoft or Vario drum and its droplet-shaped structure and paddles, the water gets distributed more evenly and faster. ActiveWater washing machines make a significant contribution to efficient water management in your home.
  • Quick 15'/30' & PowerWash 60'
    Quick 15'/30' & PowerWash 60' Quick 15‘ enables you to wash 2 kg of lightly soiled laundry in a record time of 15 minutes – including main wash, rinse and spin.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machineI've had this machine for two years and it still seems new. I'd read a couple of bad reviews somewhere about it being noisy - nonsense! It was probably not set up properly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So easy to use!My washer was delivered and plumbed in today so I haven't used all the programmes but have used the ones we will probably use the most.My first load was a kingsize cotton bed set and I was disappointed that even after a 1400 spin it felt wetter than my old AEG washer which had a 1200 spin however I have come to the conclusion that I would have achieved better results if I had put another couple of items in to increase the load. I cheered up considerably after using the delicate wash cycle and then later the 15 minute wash because (thanks to the YouTube video) spin the washing after the washing cycles were complete. I chose this washer because of the speed perfect option which reduces the wash time significantly -I can now do a full load of washing in 48minutes and I didn't want a complicated digital display. I'm really pleased with my choice but the spin only option should be in the instructions, without the option to do this I would have been disappointed. Please keep making this model!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DisappointedI had a Bosch Classic xx 1200 for 13 years and was very satisfied with it, and always used it with Easy Iron. This new VarioPerfect does not let me use Easy Iron at any spin speed above 800 r.p.m. and therefore clothes are not very well spun, and take ages to dry. Used it at 1400 r.p.m. And everything is extremely creased, and you cannot get creases out, especially on men's cotton underpants. I would like to choose how to wash myself, instead of the machine doing the choosing for me. Am very disappointed with it, and if I could afford it I would dispose of it and purchase another more basic machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice & quiet once it arrived2 deliveries. First time upon removal of packing, before Expert Logistics carried it onto property, the top came off and it was apparent that the plastic fixtures were broke. Delivery guys said it was a manufacturing fault. Second time no such problem and we are very happy with the Washing Machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Let down by poor spinFirst the pros - silent, good range functions Now the cons - not made clear how to do spin only (select AquaPlus then will spin without the rinse). This machine was a replacement for a similar previous Bosch with which we were really pleased and did us fautless service for 11 years. After just 2 months we are considering replacing this one. The spin is simply not adequate. The old machine on a 1200 spin was far superior to this even on a 1400 spin. Washing comes out far too wet, yes, wet not damp This alone means I cannot recommend this model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No thoughtWhy on Earth does Bosch not put the all the registration details in the information pack, saving having to drag the machine out again ,disconnect it and turn 180 degrees in order to peer under the top to get all the complicated info. to register your guarantee.I wasted a good 45 mins disconnecting and then having to reconnect everything back up again and carefully replace it into it's confined space under the work surface.If you can't be bothered to give a duplicate with the instruction booklet then I suggest that you at least warn buyers not to connect before hunting for the machine number details etc.. as you will have to go through the same procedure as I did. It's called common sense..
