- 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.
- 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)
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.

Customer Testimonials"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.
