8kg Front Load Bosch Washing Machine WAY32540AU is rated 4.8889 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great range of wash cycles and flexibility. This is an excellent washing machine that has reduced the number of loads we wash by half, moving up from a 6.5 kg Bosch machine. It uses very little water and the timing of cycles, spin speed and temperature are completely flexible. It shows how much the dry clothes weigh before running the cycle and 8kg allows a surprisingly large amount to be washed in a single load. It is quiet and extremely stable. We shopped around and couldn't be happier. We are very glad we got this washing machine from Appliances Online as the price including delivery was unbeatable and it has been great value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is far and away the best washing machine I've had or used. The 4 and 5 star rating for electricity and water is completely true. I can see how it introduces only a little water at the start so the detergent is initially more concentrated on the clothes then delivers more water later. When you first put the clothes in it must weigh them, because it then recommends using a lesser amount of detergent for small loads. It is even clever with the drum's speed, making it faster and slower so that each item gets it own chance to fall from the top to the bottom. The top spin speed is really fast but usually it goes slower so clothes are not creased. It is pretty quiet too. Perfect in other words.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still early days as I've only used it a couple of times. I have always owned a front loader machine but never one this intelligent.....I have always just thrown the clothes in added a full scoop of powder and picked the programme.....with this machine the programme gets chosen first, the display informs you as to the maximum weight of laundry to be inserted and then weighs the laundry as it's inserted into the drum and displays how much washing powder is required. Fabulous money saving features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with the washer. Instruction book I am still working out but getting there. Would have liked a 5kg wash - has an 8kg, 3.5kg and 2kg but no 5kg. Do like the 15 minute wash. Clothes come out OK so no need for the longer time - our clothes are not really that dirty. Towels I do longer around 50 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Machine is good overall, however we had to get the Bosch tech out to fix a rattle in the machine. Turned out to be a lose shock absorber, a bit disappointing for a new machine.

The RRP is the manufacturer's recommended retail price. We barely ever sell at RRP as we always aim to give our customers everyday low prices.

    "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.

    A special thank you for your prompt and friendly service. It was only twenty hours from the time I placed my order for a new washing machine to when I was doing my first wash in the new machine. The Team done a great and friendly service from ordering to delivery and setting up. This is the best by far of any company that I have ever dealt with. Thank you again and keep up the good work, also it was good that we were able to pay COD. This saves any worrying about security of using Credit cards over the internet.
