This washing machine holds 7 kg of laundry. It is rated at using a total of 47 liters of water in completing a wash cycle when washing regular loads. This fully automatic washer is said by one buyer to use only .6w of electricity to wash an entire load although the manufacturer has rated the washer at 2300 watts of power consumption, and uses .99kWh of energy consumption.
The washing machine is a front loading unit that is only available in white. It measures 85cm x 60cm x 60cm and weighs 71 kg. It operates by way of a tumble wash mechanism. And, the washer spins the clothes in the final cycle at 1,000 RPM.
The noise level is fairly quiet at 55db, rising to a still fairly quiet 67db during the spin cycle. This was also remarked upon by some of the satisfied buyers of the unit, that the washing machine was surprisingly much quieter than they had imagined it to be.
Bosch offers timed washes that consist of a super 15 minute wash, and a 30 minute wash. And it also offers wash types that include: delicates and silks, children’s wear, synthetics, wool, hygiene, sari and monsoon. They also have a drum cleaning mode.
When it is delivered to you, the packaging comes complete with a water inlet pipe, a drain hose and a user manual.
Some of the extra features that Bosch has added to the WAK20160IN include an anti-vibration system that promises a quiet, stable and smooth operation. This is addition to an unbalanced-load detection system, which alerts you to a problem that you can alleviate before it damages the washer.
Also featured are multiple water protection, active water, foam detection system and water plus, which are all designed to monitor the water levels and composition during wash cycles.
In addition, there is a voltcheck system to monitor the electrical supply.
This washing machine is very highly thought of by most of the people who offered reviews of it. As mentioned earlier, several people commented how this washing machine was noticeably quieter than the other machines that had replaced it.
Also, some of the reviewers had mentioned that the washing machine seemed to consume less water and power than their other washing machine had, and this may be due to the extra water monitoring features, and the voltcheck system that is featured on this washer.
The only negative was concerning the level of Bosch customer service when one customer noticed that Bosch had guaranteed installation within two days, but in reality they waited for four days before showing up to install it.
Flipkart gained a lot of praise for their prompt and polite delivery service.
All in all there is nothing but good news surrounding the Bosch WAK20160IN washing machine. It has worked flawlessly for everyone who has tried it. It also features on our list of the best front loading washing machines in India.
