Bosch WAT28460GB review
|Review: June 2015|
In a nutshell: The Bosch WAT28460GB washing machine is truly impressive. You won't find a machine that's quieter or more efficient unless you spend a lot more, and even Miele's flagship models can't match it. It's 30% more efficient than the top-rated A+++ energy rating, and Bosch's super-quiet EcoSilence drive comes with a 10-year warranty. The machine has a decent 8kg capacity and 1400rpm spin speed. Whilst it's quite expensive, it's well worth the price. Highly recommended!
Today's best buy: Bosch WAT28460GB from Buywise Domestics (£517.83)

Does beeping continue?
Asked by Tracey

Hi, I've previously owned a Bosch machine and when the cycle ended, the beeping would continue until I opened the door. Is the Bosch WAT28460GB the same? Thanks.
Does the WAT28460GB have a separate spin programme?

Overall I am very happy with the performance of this machine, which is the most expensive one I have owned. It is, as stated very quiet, and does a good job at cleaning and rinsing the laundry. One or two little niggles though, which are, if using detergent pods and/or stain catcher sheets they often end up at the front in the rubber door seal, before they dissolve in the case of the pods, and the machine has to be paused to put them back. I have started to use powder instead to get round the problem, but someone who used them, and did the washing when they were not around to watch it, or at night could find this a problem. Also the countdown timer has a mind of its own. It can say 2 hours 55 remaining, and then within a few minutes the display reads 1 hour 30 remaining. To sum up though, the machine is well made (in Germany), with a metal door hinge, and I am pleased with the cleanliness of my washing.
