From the manufacturer
A clever feature that adjusts the level of water by sensing the amount of load. In fact, it reduces the water usage that helps reduce the usage of electricity. Not just that, it uses hot water to remove the detergent residue and bacteria formed inside the wash drum, increasing the life of the machine and giving you a perfect washing experience.

World’s 1st washing machine with ECARF (European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation) certified programme to reassure you of a perfectly hygienic programme. Washes away the detergent residue left on your clothes. Just one push of a button, and no more allergies.
Now sleep peacefully at night while your washing machine works without much noise. The AntiVibration Design of Bosch washing machines reduce vibrations during the spin cycle and are designed to ensure the machine does not shake when in action.
Forgot a sock or shirt after starting the wash cycle or mixed a coloured item in with the load of white laundry? The reload option allows you to open the door early in the cycle to add or remove the items easily.
Perfect for those in a hurry - reduce wash time by up to 65% without compromising on wash results with this option and enjoy more time to do the things you love.

It's built to be tough on the stains and gentle on your clothes. Its asymmetric paddles powers heavy-duty washing and raindrops drum surface design is gentle on the clothes. Its advanced water flow system ensures efficient distribution of water and detergent throughout the wash, so that you don’t waste time soaking your laundry.
10 years warranty on motor ensures our products are of the highest standard and quality.
Save energy consumption with EcoPerfect. Its load and flow sensor detects the laundry load volume along with the kind of fabric. This information is then passed on to the temperature sensor, which takes into account the additional time available and prolongs the heating process. This allows the detergents to get activated by increasing the agitation level, saving electricity while giving perfect wash results.

It is a good idea to use a trolley for this machine. Using a trolley will allow you to move this machine whenever you need to clean the floor area of the machine or to make adjustments to the machine when issues come up. Besides it protects the machine from external water leakages. But it is important to use a quality stand for this purpose or else you risk damaging the machine through excessive vibrations! If you have voltage problems, it's a must to install a stabilizer or spike guard. Installing a water filter is important as some particles may enter the machine making it difficult to maintain it. Always use a tap connection that has a water pressure up to 8 liters per minute. The rubber seal on the entrance needs to be wiped clean to prevent mold formations. If necessary, use white vinegar to clean the seal as it is helpful in removing odor and mold formations. Keep the door open for a few hours once the washing is done. This allows the moisture to dry within the drum. Finally, follow your manufacturer's instructions on the machine's usage and maintenance. This will lengthen the life of your machine.
After a lot of research, I've found that in general, the technology used in all front loaders including Bosch isn't perfect. In fact, several cases are pending against front load machine manufacturers in the U.S. for continuing to use this imperfect technology as this has not made consumer's life easier. Now you might wonder what this is all about! It's all about maintenance! There are many issues that are caused by manufacturing defects. These front loaders get mold formation easily plus some people have even reported drum issues like rusting! Improper maintenance on the part of the owners will also lead to these issues. Beware that the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) can be damaged by rough or improper handling of the machine's controls (Buttons & Dial). Power spikes and low voltages in India are the biggest reasons why majority of the owners are affected by burnt PCBs. Replacing the PCB is very expensive (Costs Rs. 10,000 in India!). This is seriously high maintenance! The deal breaker is that it is cheaper to buy a new machine instead of repairing the existing machine (in case of a drum issue)! What I am trying to say is that you must be very careful on the maintenance aspect. Check for any defects in your machine in order to avoid any maintenance headaches in the future. I am aware of the issues plaguing the front loaders and so should you. Remember irrespective of all these issues, front loaders clean the best and are easy to use.
If you are looking for an excellent front loader, Bosch is the one for you!
The 6 kg Bosch models are imports (at the time of this writing this review). As a result they incur high maintenance costs (especially PCBs). The good news is that the 7 kg Bosch models are made in India! I'm surmising that the PCB cost and other costs of these machines may be low due to localization!
DESCALING THE MACHINE
Descaling is a simple process. However make sure to use only a FRONT LOAD MACHINE descale powder! Empty a 100 g descale powder in the detergent drawer and run the longest wash MODE with the temperature set between 40 C - 50 C. The drum should be empty during the whole process. Once the cycle is completed, run the RINSE MODE and upon completion, the descaling is done!
23 MONTHS UPDATE AS OF 23/05/2018
As per Bosch Official Site, the tub is plastic. The tub and drum are separate parts. The plastic tub houses the metal drum. So don't be confused thinking that the tub and drum are one and the same. I have uploaded a generic picture for your reference.
I made a blunder by using a semi-automatic descale powder instead of a front load descale powder! To makes the matter worse I ran the DRUM CLEAN MODE which is a hot wash! As a result, the unauthorised descale covered the drum thereby masking the shine and new look! It is very stubborn and hard to remove and so I left it as it is. The good thing is only the look was affected but not the wash quality! So if you avoid making this blunder, you will not have a single issue with this machine! To put it simply, this is a brilliant machine!

product cost on big billion day was 29990 and got the exchange offer with no cash emi (12 months), so in the exchange offer I have selected my old semi automatic washing machine (not working condition) for 3200 and the total was 26790 rs and while payment it was detected only 24500 from my card.
this product got deliver in 24 hours and service engineer from Bosch also visited on next day of delivery.
in some of the post they mention about the service issue. I think in bangalore there is no problem.
because I didn't call to Bosch but they only call me and fix the appointment for demo.
but you need to pay 300 rs for the connector which connect to water input pipe.
please do not buy stand for this washing machine has it will not consider for warranty.
there will be sound while washing and little bit high while drying the cloths (littel bit vibration) but not lauder.
this is a German company so believed on this.
there is a several option with big led display screen.
the service engineer will give some powder box while giving demo and that powder you need to use one time in month to clean the drum and it will cost 150 rs.
you can purchase one device which connect the water input pipe in washing machine (it is optional) and this device is help to prevent dust or any thing going inside the machine via water and protect drum(image attached) it cost around 1.8 k and 4 years warranty.
overall you can go for this washing machine. good deal...
Its been more than a week that the machine is not installed. Called Bosch several times but with no progress. We cant connect ourselves as there are some parts missing which only Bosch technician can provide. Dont know how more days have to wait for installation. Disappointed with Bosch service.
Recently changed over to Bosch and from day one the impression has been good. It's silent in operation compar d to the IFB and the wash quality is definitely better than IFB.
So far so good. The installation technician was very prompt in responding to installation.
An update after 3 months of usage......very good product. Wash quality is good, water consumption is slightly higher than my previous IFB front loader. Overall a good buy
