    Key Features

    15 Wash programs
    Includes: Mixed Load, Delicate/Silk, Wool, Super Quick 15 min, Sensitive, Sports, Fitness, Shirt/Blouse, Jeans/Dark Wash, 2 special memory programs, Start and reload, and Cold Wash.
    EcoSilence Drive®
    Developed by Bosch, the EcoSilence Drive® is quieter, faster, more energy efficient, more durable, and more powerful than regular motors. It takes less time to reach peak performance which results in a faster wash.
    AntiVibration™ Design
    On the sides of this washing machine you'll see a spiral pattern - this increases stability and reduces vibrations. It also helps to dampen the sound of the motor.
    VarioSoft® drum system
    Unique to Bosch, the VarioSoft® system changes the drum shape depending on the level of stain-removal needed. This optimises the wash cycles - providing gentle care for delicate garments, and intensive action for stubborn stains.
    Automatic load detection
    This washing machine will automatically detect the size of your load and the level of soiling, and then tell you how much detergent is needed.
    VarioSoft®
    The VarioSoft® drum uses a raindrop structure to provide extra care for delicate cycles, and the asymmetrical glass porthole gently returns articles to the centre of the drum, ensuring all items are integrated into the wash. The VarioPerfect™ drum also helps to reduce creasing.

    Q What is the main difference between this model and the other 8kg one? Does it have a full cold water wash?
    Asked by Pat (6/08/2010 2:09:55 PM)

    Was this question helpful to you? Yes No

    A The main differences are that the WAS32742AU spins at a higher speed of 1600RPM instead of the WAS28440AU at 1400RPM, amounting to dryer clothes. It also has a higher water rating at 5 stars instead of 4. The WAS32742AU also seems to offer an anti-vibration system for increased stability along with a load weight indicator that suggests required detergent amounts according to the size of the load. Both will offer you a cold only setting.

    "Fabulous"

    Best thing I ever did was to buy my front loader washing machine through Appliances Online.  As long as you know the exact item you want to buy you can’t go wrong.  It was delivered within a couple of days by two nice fellows who arrived on time, installed the product and took away my old one  all in about 8 minutes flat! Fabulous!.

    "A company who serves people"

    I would like to express my thanks for your performance as a company who serves people. After 21 hours since my old washing mashine collapsed I was able to start my washing with a new 7.5kg Front Load Samsung Washing Machine WF8750LSW1. The staff was so proffesional Steve was a very helping to unswer my all questions. I said he is a great ambassador for his company. He was patient and no in a hurry. I am also very happy to choose this model of Samsung as it covers all my expectations to get great results on wash with many different cycles. Definitely I will share your address with my friends.

    "I was thrilled with the process, service and price."

    I think Appliances Online is fabulous. My washing machine collapsed on a Monday morning, half way through a ton of washing. I went straight to appliancesonline.com.au, was happy with the price and the way the site handled the transaction. I received a phone call about delivery as promised. On Tuesday morning at the agreed time, two very nice men appeared, took the old machine, installed the new one and I was happily washing less than 24 hours after the old one stopped working. I was thrilled with the process, service and price.
