      Product information
      The Bosch WAQ243D1G Washing Machine delivers powerful and reliable laundry care for busier homes with Reload, VarioPerfect and ActiveWater technology. Energy efficient with a rating of A+++, it is also water efficient, using just 43 litres per wash.

      Add items after your wash has started

      The clever Reload function lets you add or remove laundry mid-cycle – ideal if you've forgotten something or dropped a sock on the stairs. Pause the wash, release the door lock and add your item.

      Once Paused, the machine automatically checks the water level is low enough and adjusts if required, so you can safely add your clothing. Since the door can be opened fully, you're not limited to small items – so an extra pair of trousers or shirt can be cleaned if you really need them.

      Conveniently, the Reload function works with most cleaning programmes on your machine, and you can even activate it up to 89% into the wash cycle in certain cases.

      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%.

      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 1200 rpm spin speed removes a lot of water from your clothes so that they dry more quickly.

      15 wash programmes help you deal with all manner of laundry situations effectively. Use Super Quick 15 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).

      I had a Bosch Classix washer for 13 years and only had a minor repair on it in all that time. I have Bosch tumble drier, so when my old machine finally gave up on me I decided to have another Bosch washing machine. This was on offer at £100 off the rrp and I'm thrilled with it. I love the reduced time button, which shortens every programme, the quick wash is ideal and although I give another spin, (pressing the aqua plus button removes rinse from rinse and spin) the programme takes approximately 30 minutes. The eco button is great when using the programme delay, I time the machine to start during the early hours, this combined with Economy seven means that we hardly use any energy when washing. The clothes feel so clean and even without another spin they are not soaking wet. We're a very busy household, two adults and two teenagers and the drum size makes all the difference to how quickly we can get the washing done. The other thing that I do like is the fact that for a short period after pressing start you can add washing in, great for the stray sock that you spot on the way out of the utility! I'm impressed with just how quiet the machine is. We've had the machine for a month and so far, so good!
      If I have to find fault, the only thing I can think of is that the machine beeps when it finishes which is slightly annoying but it doesn't last long.

      Plenty of different settings for all eventualities. 15 min wash is invaluable, and it's very quiet. EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY
