Had a Bosch previously that lasted flawlessly through 16 years of hard use, so when it died we bought this model. Really very good machine, excellent cleaning and spinning. Spin cycle is noticeably noisy but not a din by any means and not noticeable outside the kitchen. Please note you will need a 13mm spanner / socket to remove the four transport bolts - Bosch used to supply a 13mm spanner with each new machine, but no longer - only black mark if you're not expecting it. Recommended.
Fine, but useless instructions
We bought this machine this week from the Coop who had an excellent delivery service, and took the old machine with no problems.The machine seems fine, though I haven't checked how good the water/energy rating really is. The instruction manual is almost completely useless... what are Bosch thinking? If you have to produce a flimsy 1 page leaflet, at least laminate it soi it has a chance of lasting as long as the machine. Nil points here.Which? - I would really like some hard data - how many kWh? How many litres of water? These are the hard facts I want to know when buying an energy efficient machine.
