Customers have said they get that bit extra from Bosch as the appliances are well made and built to last. The machine runs quietly at just 64db , again lower than its competitors. A minor drawback seems to be that the buzzer is disproportionally loud for such a quiet machine meaning overnight washes are not an option.
The Bosch WIS28440GB Logixx uses 261.8 kwh of energy a year and comes with a 2 year warranty. The machine has advanced ‘opti-wave’ technology which means because of the shape of the drum your clothes are buffered and won’t wear out. It also has ‘Aqua-stop’ which alerts you to a leak but also stops the leaks occurring. The machine control panel consists of a dial and an LED screen with which you can programme a delay s that the machine starts when you wish. It is also possible to change your options and alter the time of the cycle while the machine is in use.
A minor drawback seems to be that the machine has to be reset again after every programme, but then with the variety of washes life throws at the average family this shouldn’t be a problem. Some customers complained that the manual wasn’t very clear however this doesn’t seem to have been a problem for the majority. The machine is sleek and impressive and with predicted longevity the consumer is getting a good machine.
