I needed a washing machine with a larger capacity than my previous front-loader and the Bosch is incredible. I am amazed at how little water it uses to wash a big load - and washes it incredibly well. I like that I can change the settings (temperature, spin RPM) to reduce the washing time and I especially like that it tells me how long the load will take. The delayed start timer is a huge bonus - the first time I used it, I had to get out of bed to make sure it was working - it was so quiet compared to my last machine. I think if you're used to front loaders, you won't be bothered by the sound of the spin cycle. The machine only uses a cold water tap and heats its own water, which I really like. The 15 minute wash cycle is handy as well. Overall, it's been a great machine so far - I've had it nearly a month and can't find a single thing to fault it on.

This machine is easy to use, the water and energy consumption is minimal and it has many settings to choose from but also allows the user some flexibility. We tend to run it on the "Cottons" setting, adjust the water temperature to "COLD" and have it on "800" revs per minute (at 1000 rpm, sometimes the clothes feel bone dry!). By changing the settings, this lessens the energy usage and cuts our washing time by about 20 minutes per load. Yes, it does have a high-pitched jet-like noise during the spin cycle but that can be easily eliminated by closing the laundry door so it really is not a problem. Overall, we are very happy with this machine!

it uses very little water which is great, and washes very well.
wish it takes shorter time to wash (we never uses eco mode again it takes forever!!!) in some cycles, but, with a quick wash option, we can do short wash.
Overall we are very happy with the product, we switched from top loader and very happy with this front loader - it's an improvement!

I've never had a front loader and I am totally converted!! I don't find the time taken to wash a load overly long (except for the soiled cottons option) and I've found the 1000rpm gets things dry but not so dry that they end up feeling scratchy. There is definitely some lint left on the clothes but with two cats I'm not surprised by that (it has reduced the lint by about two thirds though).

Have had this machine before (older version). Was extremely happy with it until it died shortly after the 5 year warranty was up. However as the service man who attempted to repair it said it was usually quite long lasting, and it was so good until then, decided to go with the same machine.

The service was exceptional! They rang prior to delivery, arrived on time, installed our washing machine and even took our old one away for free. And best of all, the delivery men even explained how to use the machine! The price for the machine was also the best one I'd seen - it even beat **** by $100! And I thought the links to the water rebate was such a great idea. Believe what you read in the "Feedback" section. I will definitely buy from Appliances Online in the future and will recommend it to my friends.

They saved my bacon - my old front loader died and I had a small baby who was using cloth nappies. Not only was it significantly cheaper to buy from Appliances Online compared with, say, ****, but I bought online, and it arrived on my doorstep less than 24 hours later, from Sydney (we are in Canberra). It saved me a lot of money, hassle and time. I recall they held the delivery truck back for a few minutes so I could finalise my purchase and could have the washing machine the next day.

I read plenty of feedback about App Online's service before going with the online option of buying my machine. This did not prepare me for just how slick their operation is! I got the phone contact about the delivery window as promised and they arrived withing that time period. What I was unprepared for was how smoothly and swiftly the guys got the machine into my unit, hooked it up, instructed me about what to do when I next move units and left .... with the packaging (now I really hadn't expected that!!!!). A very impressive operation :-)

From my very first enquiry to the end point of delivery, the staff were excellent in their willingness to listen and offer unbiased advice in terms of item options, (I was debatiing between two makes of washing machine and trying to work within a finite budget). How refreshing to have people at the end of the line, able to answer questions and offer terrific advice! I've already recommended appliances online to several friends without hesitation.

I found the website easy to navigate, the prices super competitive, delivery happened when I requested it, the delivery man was friendly, helpful and after installing my washing machine, explained how it worked. It was great to have free delivery and removal of my old washing machine. I've already recommended Appliances Online to others, who tell me they were equally impressed. I'll definitely use Appliances Online again.

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?
Asked by Marcia (31/07/2010 2:36:52 PM)

Was this question helpful to you? Yes No

A The WAE20261AU does have a spin only option in which you can put hand washed clothes in the machine and spin them to extract some of the water.

"Very helpful and friendly"

The Bosch Front loader has arrived and been installed, a little over 24 hours from ordering. The phone calls to advise when delivery would be, were well received and the actual delivery personnel were so very helpful and friendly. You have my complete confidence and trust if and when I need other appliances.

"The whole process was exceptional"

I have recently purchased a fridge and a washing machine through Appliances Online.  I have found the service to be exceptional.  From the low price of the units and free delivery and removal, to the delivery guys who were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They removed the old units, were careful not to damage my walls, took away all the rubbish, swept the floor, installed the new units (even placing my dryer back on top of the new washing machine), and even waited for 15mins while I waited for my house key to turn up (long story that you don’t want to hear about). The whole process was exceptional.  Unfortunately I can’t remember the names of the delivery guys, but I’m sure you will be able to look them up through my delivery address, to commend them personally.  I will definitely use you again in the future and I go out of my way to recommend you to my friends.

"Couldn't be happier"

Dear Matt & Shae
A very belated thank you for all the effort you put into helping us sort out the washing machine.
We are now the proud owners of a Bosch (doing at least one load every day, and sometimes up to four!), and couldn't be happier with it. With a small baby in the house, we have a lot of extra washing, and the clothes are coming out clean & fresh, and the machine is fairly quiet and doesn't walk across the laundry.
Thanks again - the customer service from Appliances Online really has been outstanding.
All the best

Lara , Foresthill, VIC


"Very impressed with the delivery and installation staff"

I was very impressed with the service and delivery from appliances on line when I ordered a small item first.  Due to this, I again ordered from Appliances on-line and bought the washing machine.  Unfortunately the machine was found to be faulty upon installation on the Friday.  The unit was removed and replaced with a good working one on the Monday.  It was disappointing but I must add that the gentleman delivering and handling the installation on the Friday was superb in his customer service and arranging a new delivery.  The delivery on Monday took place timeously and the unit was installed successfully.  Again another delivery and installation person and I was again impressed with his customer service, installation and detailed instruction on the use of the machine.  Very impressed with the delivery and installation staff employed by Appliances on-line.  Thank you for making a challenging situation less so.
