    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.

                  Product Questions - 8kg Front Load Bosch Washing Machine WAS32742AU Product Questions Product Questions

    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.

    "Courteous, pleasant and helpful"

    I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic product and service I received from your team. The two delivery men were a joy to work with. They phoned at 7.45am to let me know they would be there between 8am and 10am. They arrived on time, were courteous, pleasant and helpful. I have dealt with delivery people in the past who you just want to leave your place! But these guys were really helpful and made the whole thing easy and breezy. I haven't tried out the washing machine yet, but I'm sure it's going to be a great purchasing decision.

    "Too easy!"

    It is so rare to receive exceptional service that I had to email and let you know. I recently purchased a new washer and a dryer from appliances online after trying to find a bargain on ebay and missing out every time. Not only was I able to buy a new Bosch from you, but the helpful customer service rep gave me a good deal on my dryer also. My old washer and dryer were picked up, and my new washer was installed by two very polite and helpful delivery men. Too easy! Will definitely recommend your company.

    "My appreciation to management for the professionalism and care"

    Thank you, washer arrived as promised this morning. Please pass on my appreciation to management for the professionalism and care that your delivery drivers took today. In the impersonal world of online, your drivers showed that you don't need a shop front to have good customer service! Thank you and well done.

    " I will be recommending your service to all my friends"

    Last weekend, the kettle blew up, the cars oil thingy lit up and my dearly loved front loader which has moved interstate three times in 5 years decided it had finally had enough. So had I – with no time and no desire to deal with any of the above so got on the internet last Tuesday night...here is my experience
    Step 1: Google on Tuesday 2nd, after work
    Step 2: Find appliancesonline.com.au, check out brands, features and prices (excellent!)
    Step 3: Order new washing machine, delivery on Thursday please with a phone call half hour prior, take away the old one and install the new one – for $20!!!!
    Step 4: Emailed receipts and acknowledgement of order (same night)
    Step 5: Thursday – as promised – phone call half hour prior, old one taken to heaven, new one installed, the delivery man was friendly, thorough and efficient. I was away from work for less than an hour.
    Step 6: Go home and play with new toy
    Step 7:Write thank you email
    What an absolute shock, pleasure and relief to deal with efficient, friendly people who deliver an excellent product, price and service on time and as advertised.
    Congratulations and thank you, I will be recommending your service to all my friends.
