What is the model for this new Bosch washer?
Is it WAE24460?
Bosch Washer is a Germany designed but Thailand made (if i'm not wrong)
Most washers brand are not made in the country that designed it.
So far, against most brand, bosch seem to use the least water in washing. However i have a question: "There are alot of ppl who are willing to pay over a thousand dollars for a washer with over washing capacity of 7kg and at least 1000rpm spin speed?"
Reason is that alot of my friends are actually against buying such a washer .......
hi im using bosch 5kg 800rpm washer...so far i dun hv much issues
hee wat kind of complaint u expecting?
ok on a personal note...only thing is when we bought it we juz didnt consider 7kg or bigger....come to tik of it...it would be better to buy 7kg so tat u can wash more in one load...now our laundry still not tat much...but after i move in i guess i may need 2 washes per wk...
hi there, i saw the WAE16060SG at Best Denki today at retail $899 but i saw this WAE18060SG at Harvey Norman at retail $949 + 5 years Warranty. WAE18060SG comes with 900rpm spin speed while WAE16060SG only 800rpm and difference only S$50 and comes with extra 4 yrs warranty. Thinking to get the WAE18060SG at Harvey Norman coz comes with 5 yrs warranty which quite value for money...i found the spec at www.boschappliances.com.au ~ anyone here got any comment ?
I bought a bosch washer too, after comparing the few brands and our specific needs, we choose bosch washer WAE24460.the spin speed variable up to 1200RPM, with a LCD display, selection and control becomes ease to use and undestand,my thick towel dry overnight by airing it .the mix load takes 50mins to complete, clothing come out very clean, and not crumble.
I had compared WAE24460 and WAE20260 and i found tat WAE20260 got 70 n 80 degrees for temperature settings and prefer the normal button..dun really like the sensor touch button,may i know where u get the washer ?how much ?
I seldom require above 60 degree wash , try 40 degree on my kitchen soiled tower with persil and the result great!!
so not an issue for me,more over 90degree is available for very stubborn stain.but i will think twice before washing with 90 degree due to electrical cost...
Been using the soft touch button,like it very much,very easy to use and the BIG screen give one glance information on RPM,wash Temperature, duration, duration , which i can modify to suit my need.
you can try to call Hong liang, sweetson,dav electronic to get a quote and compare.
I bought it from HL at bukit merah, we bought a few items from there, including LCD TV,Fridge,washer plus dryer, so we got some discount,i dun have a break down price, but i can recall it should be around thousand over.
Juz bought WAE18060SG washer & WTA4108GB dryer + fridge & microwave. Got a discount for everything & totalled up to $3679. Got 5 yrs warranty for all items. Initally wanted to buy electrolux EW880F washer but my fiance happened to see the WAE18060SG. We were told that the diff between the 2 is the S/S protruding parts in the drum of Bosch compared to the PVC material found in the drum..was also told that Bosch is the only brand that got the NEA rating
Harvey Norman and Best Denki price are higher, the washer wae24460 is $1299, and the washer WTA4108GB is $799, usually they can offer you 5% off, if you really want to buy from them, ask for the extended 5 year warrenty for free,I have try to bargain with them but seems that there are not willing to give further discount. recently i bought a vacuum cleaner from HN, and get a 10% discount , but i decided to change it to a 5 year extended warrenty instead.
hihi, u guys using front loading? how do u find it so far? good? heard fr the older gerenation tt front loading no good... limited washing power n the power no good for towel... will turn clothing to very rough...
Front loading washer actually gives u a better care for ur laundry. Even u spend on laundry shops, they are using front loading washer.
1. they dun get tangle laundry
2. they uses about 50 - 60 liters water while compare japanese top load about 150 - 180 liters.
3. build in heater allows for warm wash which remove sweats and smells effectively.
4. more gentle for delicate stuffs and dun really need laundry bag.
5. handwash programme available in front loading.
So, it's worth to try if u r still young or not having any backache problem.
Saw bosch washer was-28441me with 8kg.1400rpm and made in germany in harvey norman millenia walk. selling at $1599 nw, quite a gud deal..still can get cheaper if keen to buy...anyone got comments ?
Emmm... for my opinion for Bosch quite a good washing machine is juz that Bosch using oni Two rinses for washing which most of the front loading brand using three rinses for washing which is more cleaner. Somemore i ever encouunted my auntie which is using bosch, she told me that one day she closed the door too hard and the door catch broke coz the door catch was PLASTIC!!! That's y i bought other brand.
Vinz........ Harvey Norman might not neccessary be the cheapest.... Looking at Yesterday's paper, Departmental Stores other then Harvey are offering Bosch product at 20% of the retail prices!!!!!!!!!! Incredible price whereby even small retail shops cant afford that.
Not forgetting what happened last week when Best (20% off for all front loaders) and Courts(15% for all front loaders)offered the crazy prices. Buyers who got their machines must have wished that it happened every wk.
Hi all, recently saw a new model from bosch, it's a 8kg and 1200rpm,price at 1499 and giving foc pots nw...salesman at harvey offer me 1280.quite a gud deal and made in germany.machine very silent too..thinking to get this for new house...found tat tis model is metal catch and different from thailand model. Should be a gud deal~
For the german-made bosch at $1280 is quite cheap.
But i would rather go for a basic miele w562($1788) than a high end bosch, spare the few hundreds difference.
Or alternatively, I go for the thai-made bosch, last I heard $999. 1000rpm.
The reason, a basic model of the same brand has the same material in-built in them as the most exp model of the same brand.its just features,load capacity difference. And there is a world of difference between the built-tenacity of a basic miele and a high end bosch
But unfortunately the miele promotion price i think is ended last i heard.
However a bosch is still not a bad buy, just that I will choose miele without hesitation if I'm paying more than 1k for a washer.
I saw the WAS28444ME in action finally at my parents place.
Its really good. built construction - almost like miele. Except the quality of material is different.
Clean washes even with the SuperQuick 15.
Though the agitation for the cotton, i would have preferred it to be more energetic. In fact the agitation for the superquick is more energetic than the cotton. Something that is puzzling me as i would have expected that cotton to have the same agitation.
But cos of the drum construction if it rotates clockwise the agitation is on the rough side whereas if it turns anti clockwise its on a softer wash approach. Hence during cotton it turns more clockwise than anti clockwise so as to give a more tougher washing action.
Easy care agitation is okay not too bad. Though over Easy Care agitation - i would opt for mix load.
Mix Load - is similar to automatic programme on Miele machine and i like this feature.
One thing that is really cool is the effort on being able to customise the wash that is available. Typically automatic wash can only be done at 40 with lower spin speed available as max. But the Mix load you are able tio spin at max spin speed.
And even the express washes u are unable to customise the temp and spin speed to higher, the superquick15 you can select lower temp. And if you select slightly higher max-40 the timing will be at 20 mins. So its okay.
Seems okay for most of the washes. Though with speedperfect they definitely cut down by 1 rinse to make it 2. Unfortunately their rinse plus is + 1 rinse instead of more water for the rinse cycle.
The washing standard times is really long. Opt for the speed perfect option and it cuts down drastically. by omitting one rinse. But then again you can still add a 3rd rinse by selecting rinse plus. Something i like a lot.
Balancing very good as compared to other front load. But still miele has slightly better balancing during spinning due to cast iron support. but it does try to spin at lower rpm if its still unbalanced several times before giving up.
Its ultra silent. Comparable to miele with the professional motor. quieter than miele standard motor. Even at 1400 its still very quiet. The only part of the washer that betrays the sound is the one coming from the detergent dispenser drawer. And cos its as heavy as miele washer. it doesnt really flinch or dance while spinning at max load at max spin speed.
Overall I am satisfied with the washer, jst that if it allows for slightly more customisation of wash and a slightly energetic agitation, and better materials, it would be as good as miele.
i would not recommend bosch washing machine because mine broke down after 1 year plus. Getting it repaired was a major pain and I couldnt wash my clothes for about 2 weeks...It's still not repaired yet. Their after-sale service was lousy and slow... Basically call centre pushed to repair dept and keep blaming repair dept and says repair dept didnt update status - ding dong here and there... Called them 3 times also no status report....very frustrating.
Hi Noscon, I am facing the same problem like u too. Bosch after sales service is lousy plus horrible. My washing machine broke down in dec 2011 (1 year plus) and it take 3 weeks to get repaired and now it broke down again last wednesday. This time I have to wait for another 10 days. Don't buy Bosch, not recommended.
