Josephine Djampim says:

Where can I get one to buy in Ghana?

Brian Spraggon says:

The laundry might have come out clean, but did you not notice the remaining soap suds? I also have this machine and I find even with the aqua plus my washing comes out soapy. This machine does not take in nearly enough water. I actually resort to pouring in extra water with a watering can!

Gordon Ferguson says:

Very informative video which explains the operation of the machine far better than the operation manual. I recently purchased this model as a replacement and had difficulty in following the operating instructions. Your video demonstration explains in simple terms the various features of the machine and how to apply them. Thank you very much for taking the time to produce an excellent informative video.

lulu26k says:

Dear ibaisaic – do you have water on door inside when its finished wash ?
Please reply
Thank you

John Nygate says:

I cannot believe your full duvet set weighs more than 2 Kg. Can you really put 8 Kg in this machine.

Lozzy R says:

Chesca says:

tiredrummertube says:

much improved model from your moms older Bosch. This is so quiet and cleans well with such little soap! THX for your video reviews.eyebayseeack.yea.

Jerry Simon says:

thank you bosch man! I am going to buy one right now.

Serafina Cusack says:

My new Bosch was installed today by 2 pm, and I spent over 2 hours studying the guide, and one hour worrying about all its warnings: danger of death, risk of scalding, electric shocks, risks to children and pets, but virtually nothing like your excellent demonstration of what the different programmes are and how to set what one needs – for example, I had five piles of washing waiting for the new arrival, with a deadline for washing and ironing them of 10 am tomorrow, and worked out that this will take 5 x 4 hours, so I would be up and down from bed all night. Thanks to you (but not to Bosch’s instructions), I know how to reduce the time but still get good results. Thanks for your very clear and professional U-exposition, Lanna

SuperWasherKid2002 says:

The washing machine tumble slow at the beginning is because its senses the load and how much water is then it needs to add

Kevin Geaney says:

wonderful explanation of the various buttons etc, thank you. what I find confusing is which type of clothing goes with each setting? For example is easycare suited for my good shirts or is that just for tracksuits, tee shirts etc? what would you use a SuperQuick wash for? what is the difference between Cottons 40deg and Mixed Load?

lukiejames says:

Hi Ibaisaic, I was just wondering if you found the Bosch superior to the AEG or the AEG superior to the Bosch? Thanks 😀

random dude says:

Probably it goes slow to sense the Wight.

taximark74 says:

Sudha Jetly says:

Alan Jobburn says:

Very useful, much better than trying to understand the manual, especially on the time features.

Great review best I have seen so far…….. thank you.

Nicki Hankova says:

We’ve recently purchased this washing machine, now we have it for 6 months and a technician came to visit us 4x in those months. It started to make wierd sounds and the wash button kept (blinking) even though we have put a little amout of detergent. Suddenly it started to change the programs buy it self, the filter couldn’t catch up when it went to rinse/spin. We called many times to complain to Bosch and tried to get a refund fron Currys where we purchased it. But they didn’t want to even help us or to get our refund back. Any idea what can we do, and why the programs keep changing but it self?
Thank you

Priya Sharma says:

Is it okay if there are suds after the spin cycle?
