I have recently purchased bosch 6 kg washing machine, not exactly the same model number, but the closest model. however the internals of same capacity machines are more or less the same. pros- machine cleans clothes very well, even at 30 degrees it cleans very well. machine offers upto 90 degrees hot wash. - water consumption is surprisingly low. for the first two weeks i didn't have enough length of outlet pipe to connect the water to my drain. so i was using a 20 l bucket for collecting the waste water. what really surprised me was that for modes like quick wash, the flushed water was less than 20l. for daily wash modes, it was little more than a bucket of water. that doesn't mean, this machine is for water scarce areas. will provide a detailed update after few more bills- super silent - machine is really silent if you are washing normal clothes that spread uniformly. - debris collection - i don't know how it works, or if it's a feature, but the machine throws out non washable things to a cavity in the washer ring close to the door. machine will control and stop the water as needed. cons- pressure issue - yes, the bosch technician itself has agreed that there are pressure issues with bosch/siemens machines, but not with any other brands. my water tank is a floor high. , and i have a fair pressure of water in taps. but the technician told me that my pressure is relatively low after observing the water flowing into machine. i haven't faced any issues or errors, but the water flows very slowly into the machine. but if you live in a flat or house with low water pressure, i would recommend you to go for the lg machines rather than taking the risk and ending up buying pressure pump etc. - no option to use more water for rinsing. apart from pre wash mode, which is an additional wash cycle, there is no option to rinse the clothes with more water. i have abundant water for use. - drying- the machine dries clothes well but not outstandingly. i have seen top load machines that dry clothes to near dry conditions. - lack of door lock indicator - i am not sure about the models with display, but bosch could have added a door lock indicator separately rather than using the blinking leds to indicate wash completion. if you leave clothes for washing and you never know, whether to wait or not, you need a display. you can just load the washing machine set the timer for 4 am and just go to sleep. when you wake you your clothes will be ready. we are a family of 3 and sometimes i find the capacity of 6 kg just ok. however if you are going to use the machine once in a week, less amount of clothes 6 kg is good enough. 6 kg can wash just a little over clothes that fill a 20 l bucket. another thing to be noted is that the capacity varies with modes. modes like super clean etc are supposed to be used for 3

Power consumption rises up with more hotter modes. - power consumption - i couldn't feel a marginal increase in my power consumption after the machine was installed. yesterday i saw a safety pin and a cotton swab in the bin. if power goes off it will take some time for door to be unlocked, but i have no clues if its locked or not. also it's good to go with a model with timer as this will be really helpful if you have voltage issues in your area

I simulated the possible causes and finally discovered that the safety mechanism to lock the door perennially if water is present inside the tub, is not available in bosch and siemens. imagine there is a power failure, the users can automatically open the door after 10 minutes. i was deeply disappointed with this feature, which is not suitable for a country like india, having chronic power shortage. there is no heat development and unwanted power consumption. less power consumption. safety door lock mechanism not adequate

But if you live in a flat or house with low water pressure, i would recommend you to go for the lg machines rather than taking the risk and ending up buying pressure pump etc. because if you buy a machine and you can't use it daily, it's a waste of money and energy. buying tip. if you can afford buying a model with a display, go for it

I got an awesome deal from flipkart than retailers outside, hassle free delivery and service. the only other consideration in mind before buying was ifb, both are good in their own ways, advantage over ifb is that bosch is lot quieter when it comes to washing n drying which i checked n verified with my cousin who went with ifb recently, hopefully that helps the people who are confused which one to go for. all-in-all it's a one time buy with no second thoughts, no compromise, bosch is bosch, went with the best, got the best wash experience .

Pros- machine cleans clothes very well, even at 30 degrees it cleans very well. machine offers upto 90 degrees hot wash. that doesn't mean, this machine is for water scarce areas. - power consumption - i couldn't feel a marginal increase in my power consumption after the machine was installed. i use the machine daily. will provide a detailed update after few more bills- super silent - machine is really silent if you are washing normal clothes that spread uniformly. for everything else machine works smoothly and doesn't vibrate or shake. - debris collection - i don't know how it works, or if it's a feature, but the machine throws out non washable things to a cavity in the washer ring close to the door. machine will control and stop the water as needed. but the technician told me that my pressure is relatively low after observing the water flowing into machine. i haven't faced any issues or errors, but the water flows very slowly into the machine. but considering that the consumption is low, it doesn't affect the time. because if you buy a machine and you can't use it daily, it's a waste of money and energy. however the quality of rinsing offered is good normally. machine has some sensing mechanisms to add more rinse cycles if needed. - drying- the machine dries clothes well but not outstandingly. - lack of door lock indicator - i am not sure about the models with display, but bosch could have added a door lock indicator separately rather than using the blinking leds to indicate wash completion. if power goes off it will take some time for door to be unlocked, but i have no clues if its locked or not. because if you are a working person, you won't always get enough time in morning and night. also it's good to go with a model with timer as this will be really helpful if you have voltage issues in your area. you can just load the washing machine set the timer for 4 am and just go to sleep. a 7 kg machine has more rpm and should dry a little better. however if you are going to use the machine once in a week, less amount of clothes 6 kg is good enough. check the serial no behind the door in the bosch website and see the model year. go for the latest models or the ones that looks good to you
