Q Does this washing machine heat the water? I have only access to cold water in the laundry and I want something that heats water.
Asked by Polly (22/06/2010 12:32:52 PM)

Was this question helpful to you? Yes No

A This machine does heat the water with an internal element. It only has a cold water inlet hose, so you cannot use hot water even if you wanted to.

Q Can I use the spin cycle for spinning handwashing, without using the wash program? eg.....have just done handwashing and need to get the excess water off, so can I put it in the washing machine and turn the dial to spin to spin the handwashing?

"Your service has been exceptional"

I ordered a Bosch washing machine on Wednesday 29th January and it was delivered and installed by the time I arrived home from work the next day! The driver rang me on Thursday morning to say what time he would be there, he arrived within the appointed time and installed the new machine, removed the old one and took it away with all the packaging, all at no extra cost. Your service has been exceptional, I never give feedback on anything but you guys are so outstanding you deserve the recognition. Thanks again
