This Best Buy washing machine does an outstanding job of cleaning clothes, whether on the cottons or synthetics cycles. The spin cycle is effective at removing water from laundry, and you’ll find this washing machine simple to use. It’s worth bearing in mind that the cottons cycle is quite slow and inefficient with energy use, though – which might be key considerations for you.

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.
