Bosch WAW28660GB review
|Review: June 2015|
Last updated March 2016
In a nutshell: The WAW28660GB is probably the best Bosch washing machine you can buy! The new design of this machine increases the washing capacity to 9kg and makes it the quietest machine on the market. It's also as efficient as any other machine - a full 30% better than the gold standard A+++ rating. Bosch's EcoSilence drive comes with a 10 year warranty for peace of mind, and Bosch generally enjoys a solid reputation for reliability, making this model a good investment despite its high purchase price. Only the modest 1400rpm spin speed stops this getting a 5 star rating from us. We almost never give 5 stars to a washing machine, and this is really an outstanding product.
Today's best buy: Bosch WAWH8660GB from Buywise Domestics (£794.99)
The Bosch WAW28560GB washing machine is the same as this model, except that it doesn't include the i-Dos intelligent detergent dispensing system. You'll save yourself up to £100, so it's definitely worth a look.

I use powder detergent. If I buy this machine, would I need to change to liquid detergent because of the auto dosing feature?

You can use regular detergent if you prefer.

The only drawback from this machine is that it does not do spin only ,it does rinse and spin.so if you have something heavy that comes out a bit dripping wet you have to wait for it to rinse again then spin.
