"Not the best…"
I've had a Bosch excel 8 for a couple of years now. It replaced a fantastic Zanussi which went on for years and actually washed well. This Bosch machine has loads of programmes most of which are unnecessary and yet doesn't have a proper spin programme. It is very attention seeking - always beeping! The buttons are fiddly. The door is big but as previous reviewer noted, gets in the way of the washing basket. The quality of the wash is variable. It does, unfortunately, seem to be built to last so I guess I am going to be stuck with it for a few years yet.Read moreLess
Been using this for the last few weeks. Loving the quick cycles, with eco and speed options at the touch of a button to optimise your time and elec bill!
Not yet dared to use the 15 min cycle with mucky kids clothes, but can see the possibility if its just generally worn grown-ups stuff.
Massive drum and door - means getting a washing basket underneath is difficult, but just need to remember to open the door first!
Some of the washing powder seems to be left in the drawer after washing, so might have to review the powder options (currently use a tablet). Suspect free flowing powder, liquids, or into the drum types would all be OK, and not noticed an issue with dirty clothes.
Overall, very happyRead moreLess
