Bosch WAN28002GB Freestanding Washing Machine, 8kg Load, A+++ Energy Rating, 1400rpm Spin, White £349 at John Lewis

The WAN28002GB Freestanding Washing Machine from Bosch comes with 8 programmes and EcoSilence Drive for quiet operation and durability that you can rely on. The EcoSilence Drive is extremely energy-efficient too and is one of the main reasons this appliance has been awarded an A+++ energy rating.

It also features VarioPerfect where you can choose to take 65% less time or use 50% less energy. ActiveWater saves you water and power thanks to a 2-step automatic load adjustment system, ensuring that only the amount of electricity and water required for that load is used, and at just 55dB quiet washing and a 76dB spin cycle it’s a refreshingly quiet appliance.

There is easy operation with an LED display and convenient control dial, and it has Start Delay so you can start the washing program whenever you want to have it finished when you want.
