ActiveWater Plus: Save money and protecting the environment thanks to the efficient water management.

ActiveWater Technology consists of three components: the sensor-controlled, continuous automatic load adjustment, the optimised water induction and the drum system. To avoid water wastage, the sensor adjusts the exact water consumption to the wash, according to the fabric type and quantity. 

The laundry is soaked faster and more evenly through the optimised water inflow which is particularly mild and gentle. Thanks to the VarioSoft or Vario drum and its droplet-shaped structure and paddles, the water gets distributed more evenly and faster. ActiveWater washing machines make a significant contribution to efficient water management in your home.

VarioPerfect: Washing more quickly or efficiently.

Through its perfect program range, VarioPerfect ensures top wash results for all types of fabrics and every load. With VarioPerfect, you can set most programs to be quicker or more efficient with the SpeedPerfect and EcoPerfect functions. This reduces time by up to 65% or energy by up to 50%.

Quick 15’/30’: Quick wash cycle, can be shortened from 30 to 15 minutes by pushing the Speed button.

Bosch 8kg Washing Machine | WAP28378GB is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought 2 weeks ago. After washing programme items more wet than my replaced 1200 spin Bosch. The machine only spins for about the last minute of cycle. I then have to give the items a spin only cycle, taking 13 mins. Weighed 1 item after wash programme, 920 grams. After further spin of complete load 610 grams ! Thank goodness for the speed perfect button, reducing 30 degree wash to 1 hour (plus 13 mins for extra spin ) I should have taken more notice of several other reviews of this product on other web sites stating washing too wet, before I purchased. I do not understand how a certain organisation could make this machine a "best buy" product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Quality Submitted as part of a selected review panel. We received the Bosch WAQ283S1GB Washing Machine on the date specified and within the alloted time period. It was relatively simple to set up when compared to our previous appliance. The machine looks great with it's chrome buttons and sleek white finish. The easy to understand manual makes the excellent range of programmes simple to use. I particularly like the mixed wash programme, found the spin speeds to perform excellently and the quality of wash is a marked improvement on my previous appliance. I would highly recommend this product to everyone as cannot rate it highly enough wish I could give it more than 5 stars. No negatives at moment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No thought Why on Earth does Bosch not put the all the registration details in the information pack, saving having to drag the machine out again ,disconnect it and turn 180 degrees in order to peer under the top to get all the complicated info. to register your guarantee.I wasted a good 45 mins disconnecting and then having to reconnect everything back up again and carefully replace it into it's confined space under the work surface.If you can't be bothered to give a duplicate with the instruction booklet then I suggest that you at least warn buyers not to connect before hunting for the machine number details etc.. as you will have to go through the same procedure as I did. It's called common sense..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dreadful Spin Brought this machine recently, found some decent programs on it and I love the 15 minute wash, very handy to freshen clothes up. speed perfect is great for cutting the wash time down other wise it can take hours, and that's simply no good for a busy household. My only disappointment with this machine is the dreadful spin leaving clothes very wet and heavy when its finished, not a patch on my old 1400 zanussi for spinning the clothes nearly dry. I do like the machine and some of the features, just disappointed with the spinning. I did expect better from Bosch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I had a Bosch Classic xx 1200 for 13 years and was very satisfied with it, and always used it with Easy Iron. This new VarioPerfect does not let me use Easy Iron at any spin speed above 800 r.p.m. and therefore clothes are not very well spun, and take ages to dry. Used it at 1400 r.p.m. And everything is extremely creased, and you cannot get creases out, especially on men's cotton underpants. I would like to choose how to wash myself, instead of the machine doing the choosing for me. Am very disappointed with it, and if I could afford it I would dispose of it and purchase another more basic machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WAQ283S1 GB101 Have just replaced our old machine after 10 years !! this machine is has an excellent range of wash cycles and is so much quieter than the old machine we had .Would recommend to anyone

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reserving my judgement! Works o.k. but the heater element has just failed after 2 years. Spin without rinse is possible if you read the manual (set to rinse & spin, then touch the AQUA PLUS button, which cancels the rinse). A dedicated function would have been better with the button turning on the rinse instead of off. We don't all read the manual at every use!
