The built-in Bosch WIS24140GB washing machine offers a range of functions including an easy-care program and an extra rinse setting. We found out if this was enough to make this Bosch washing machine a great buy when we put it to the test in our labs.

As a replacement for an old Whirlpool model, this was easy to to install. Due to the inlet valve being located at the end of the feed hose, a larger hole was needed in the adjoining cabinet to feed the hose through. First impressions: very well built, low noise, and excellent wash results. After sustained heavy use for the past year: very pleased with my choice, greatly helped by Which?

Washes well but rather slow. I use it overnight but not having a display for time remaining was a BIG surprise at this price of machine. Disappointed that it has no quick wash although one of the Easycare programs is only 40 minutes. There is a BIG problem with spinning if you wash one or two largish items as it refuses to spin if the load is uneven. This has happened to me on several occasions for loads that have worked perfectly well on other machines. Only option is to take out the very wet washing and split it up to spin with some smaller items. If you always have a mix of small and large items it is OK.

Started off ok but became faulty after less than two months' use. Reported problem and was told an engineer would visit in 12 days!!! How's that for lousy customer service? Won't be buying bosch group again.

We had a Bosch machine for 10 years and have just bought this as a replacement. Neat machine great drum size fit a really large load and washes well. Nice and quiet. Program times are a little long, probably should have bought the next machine up as it had a 15 min program but was more money. Integrated machines are always so much more expensive.
