Flipkart delivery is good. Package came in good condition with out any scratches or dents. This is a new model and still not showing up in Bosch India web site. Spoke with Bosch customer care and they confirmed that this is a new model and need to be added in their website. Warranty is 2 years on washing machine and 12 years on motor (As per Bosch India website). Installation: Installation is free of cost but buy and keep with you Faucet Tap Adapter Connector (For Bosch Front Load Washing Machine Water Inlet Pipe Hose Tube). Otherwise the installation guy will charge you 300 rs. I bought it for 150 from a near by shop. Extended warranty can be bought from the installation team at the time of installation or can request Bosch customer care to send a representative for this at later time. You can buy Extended Warranty within 150 days from the purchase date. Price for 1 year extended warranty is 2999 INR. For 2 years this is 4999 INR. Price of Bosch washing machine cover is 800 INR (This is available from the installation team). Price of Bosch descaler is 600 INR (This is available from the installation team). Descaler is to remove limescale in the machine. Please note that the power cable is very short. For me it is okay since the power plug is very near from where my washing machine is placed. Noise is less. Machine makes more noise while drying the clothes (Spin/Drain). Rest of the time noise is less. Used very less, like 3 to 4 times. So, cannot tell more about the product. Detailed information will be posted after using for 3 to 4 months.
PROS : 1. The washing machine is really value for money. Cleans sometimes even better than hands. Even collar stains goes easily without rubbing. 2. Its really cleans the cloths gently, without any shrink or crease. 3. Drier, almost dries 75% . You need just 20 minutes to hang and Dry. 4. Childlock function is good. 5. In Eco mode along with cold water, the power consumption is just 250 watts. 6. Very low noise. No one can even know that a washing machine is running. 7. During the dry, it gives a warm air through the cloths. Its a nice feeling when cloths gets out warm from the machine. 8. Handles low water pressure flawlessly. CONS : 1. There should be a real time weighting system that let me know how much cloth I am putting. There is more space than 8kg cloths. Almost 10 kg fits easily. 2. Buzzer can be a bit more loud. Its a bit hard to listen if you are two rooms away. 3. Weight limit changes according to the wash programes. I can't put 8 kg of jeans. 3.5 kg is limited for jeans. 4. During the wash, if child lock isn't enabled and by mistake you spin the programme selector dial , the running wash programe will be changed to the selected one from begining. No matter, if there is already cloths inside half washed or not. 5. There is no indication LED on the mode dial. Every time I have to bend down to see which programme I am selecting.
pros - anti vibration - silent - prewash option - volt check - 12 years warranty cons - it has only spin/drain option. no inbuilt dryer - bit expensive
Pros: 1.Operation is super silent. 2.Build quality is excellent. 3.Its Express wash program is too good. 4.its Water plus option works well. 5.it dries the cloth 75 percent. 6.Any type of Cloth is washed super clean. 7.Pre programs are sufficient for any wash. 8.Looks nice. 9.service call is on time. cons: Its specification is misleading like: 1. it says it consumes 990 watt,but actually it is 2300W. 2. it says its drum is stainless steel, but when you bring magnet to its washing drum (vario drum) then the magnet sticks to it sharply, means its not stainless steel but iron with chromium coating, and hence prone to wear out if kept in moisture. 3. its spare parts are too expensive.
Product is really good. The installation and support was very prompt. Sound is minimal and wash quality is very good. Highly recommended
