It’s easy for us to give this washing machine our Best Buy recommendation. It’s brilliant at cleaning clothes, plus it’s really easy to use. Its only real flaw is its inefficiency with water use on the cottons cycle.

This is a brilliant washing machine Best Buy from Bosch – it blasts stains out of clothes and does a first-class job of spinning away excess water. It isn’t bad at rinsing and it’s a doddle to use – we like how clearly marked the control panel is.

This brilliant Best Buy delivers outstanding cleaning whether you’re washing cottons or synthetics, and its 1,400rpm spin is superb. It’s really easy to use – we like the wide door opening, and the popular 40°C cottons program is quick.

If you do choose to buy a Bosch washing machine, you're in good company. In our 2016 washing machine survey, 34% of respondents owned a Bosch. 

You should expect to pay between around £300 and £600 for a Bosch. Machines from the premium series 8/Logixx range can cost a bit more.

Independent washing machine tests

We don't think anyone should end up shelling out their hard-earned cash for a washing machine that breaks down prematurely or is anything less than fantastic at washing clothes.

That’s why we test how well each washing machine we test copes with tough stains, such as blood, chocolate, coffee, grass and red wine. And we also carry out 50 separate ease-of-use assessments so that when you get your washing machine home, you can be confident it will be really easy to use.

All washing machines we test – including Bosch – get tested for a month at the Which? Test Lab

Bosch washing machine reviews you can rely on

Every Bosch washing machine we test spends at least a month being assessed in the Which? test lab – that's the Which? difference. Only then do we have enough information to bring you our independent washing machine reviews

But we don’t stop there. For a washing machine to be awarded Best Buy status, it has to be one of the highest scoring in our tests and come from a reliable washing machine brand. We survey thousands of washing machine owners each year to find out about the niggles and problems their machines have caused them. 

Brands with a poor reliability record can only be awarded Best Buys when their machines do well enough in our tests and they provide a free five-year parts and labour guarantee.
