Why Has it Scored 75?

Bosch is an excellent washing machine brand.
At over a year old this washing machine is slightly out of date, and newer washing machines with more up to date technology are available.
It has running costs of $560 over 10 years, which is pretty average compared to the other 2,100+ washing machines that we have calculated running costs for.
This washing machine has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Big drum capacity
Quieter than average noise level
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.
