I bought this washing machine just over a year ago and am very happy with it. It copes well with the workload created by my active toddler! I've bought Bosch products before and have always been very happy with the quality, ease of operation and longevity. So far, this one is no different!
What do I like? It`s got lots of different programmes including a 15 minute wash cycle and a "handwashing" setting. This model can handle a family friendly 7kg load weight too. Other family friendly features include a child lock (which my son did work out within a few days but he`s since forgotten how to switch it off so it's still useful) and timer function which allows you to load the machine but delay the wash cycle start time for a period of time - very useful for taking advantage of cheap electricity at night. It also enjoys an A+++ energy performance rating so is very energy efficient.
What's not to like? Very little. My main complaints are that the child lock doesn't prevent the machine being switched off - if the dial is turned to the off position then the machine is switched off - my toddler thinks this is lots of fun!!! Also, the timer function can only delay the wash cycle by a whole number of hours - delaying by 30 minute time slots would be useful sometimes.
All in all, a good quality machine with a good range of wash programmes at a good price.
