This gives you plenty of choice to find the right one for you, with the more expensive machines typically have more advanced features.

Choosing the right Bosch washing machine for you

Bosch washing machines have a range of load capacities, including 7kg, 8kg, 9kg and 10kg. Most Bosch washing machines are white, but you can buy some models in silver or graphite and a few in black.

Each Bosch washing machine falls into one of these ranges:

  • The value-added Serie 2 range
  • The lower-mid-level Serie 4 range
  • The upper-mid-level Serie 6 range

The pricier the washing machine, the more features you will get, with the most expensive having both wifi-connectivity and automatic detergent dosing.

For smart models, you can use the Bosch Home Connect to control and monitor the washing machine remotely. You can also enter the type of laundry you are washing and how dirty it is to get to the right program.
