Why Has it Scored 71?

Bosch is an excellent washing machine brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better washing machines are available.
This washing machine has running costs of $470 over 10 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 2,100+ washing machines that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Faster than average cycle time
Quieter than average noise level
Smaller than average drum capacity
Spin-drying class rating of only B

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each washing machine by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the washing machine is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec washing machines come to market, the older washing machines will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
