Product information
The Bosch WAQ243D1G Washing Machine delivers powerful and reliable laundry care for busier homes and comes with VarioPerfect and ActiveWater technology for incredible efficiency. This Bosch washing machine is one of the most energy efficient machines with a rating of A+++, it is also water efficient, using just 43 litres per wash.

VarioPerfect

VarioPerfect technology makes the WAQ243D1GB Washing Machine all about you and your laundry allowing your washing to be sped up by up to 65%.

You can also halve the energy consumption of the machine, giving you a far more economical wash without sacrificing performance.

On top of this, ActiveWater is an ingenious technology which makes sure you're only using the precise amount of water needed for each wash, reducing unnecessary waste.

EcoSilence drive

Keep the noise down with the WAQ243D1GB's EcoSilence Drive motor which is guaranteed for 10 years and drastically reduces the audible output of the machine. This powerful engine is brushless, making it both faster and quieter whilst saving energy consumption and maintaining excellent durability.

The WAQ243D1GB also includes an AntiVibration design that features an intelligent spiral design which means noise is absorbed by the machine's frame which also stabilises the chassis as it spins to reduce operating noise to barely more than a whisper.

Practical laundry days

The Bosch WAQ243D1GB features a self-cleaning detergent drawer which cleans itself automatically, sparing you an annoying chore and remaining spotless for each wash.

The clear LED display shows you how far into the programme the washing machine is and also keeps you informed on time remaining until the cycle finishes. The display can also be used to programme the useful 24 hour timer to let you select exactly when you want your wash to start.

Schedule washes to finish as soon as you get home from work and reduce the time that your washing sits in the machine.

Handy programmes

The WAQ243D1GB includes a WaveDrum interior that allows for gentle washing thanks to its unique structure which minimises wear and impact on your garments as they tumble around.

Its high spin speed of 1200 rpm removes a lot of water from your clothes so that they dry more quickly. All of this high performance washing is presented in a cost-saving appliance that's rated A+++ for energy efficiency.

The Bosch WAQ243D1GB Washing Machine offers 15 wash programmes to help you deal with all manner of laundry situations effectively.

Use the Super Quick 15 setting and have your clothes ready to hang out in only 15 minutes – it's ideal for 2 kg of lightly soiled laundry (equal to 10 shirts), and is yet another time and cost-saving feature of this great washing machine.

Use the Bosch WAQ243D1GB Washing Machine for more efficient washing.

Brilliant wash, removes stains much better than my old whirlpool. It's very quiet. The delay timer includes the time of the wash so ideal to get it finished when you want. I am really pleased I purchased this washer.
The wash cycles tend to be long but I've used the speed perfect option and the results were great so not really an issue

Build quality superb, motor stupidly quiet - never seen anything like it. Loads of programmes. Love the ability to stop and open the door if you forgot something at the last second.
When using the ECO setting cycle times are circa 3-4 hours for one wash - with a family thats way too long to catch up at the week end. That said the normal options are circa 1.5 hours which is fine.
