This machine has some amazing features. With this machine, you can set your own preferred settings. It gives you different programs for different functions and different materials.

“‘Mixed-Load” element in this washing machine allows you to mix all sorts of clothing items in the machine. In this case, you are supposed to half-fill the machine and select “Mix-Load” settings which takes 1 hour and 3minutes to complete the task. 

If you want to be economical with water and electricity bills, you can increase the washing temperatures and spin speed using the “VarioPerfect” button. Also, using the same button, you can increase the duration of cycles and still be more economical on electricity and water. 

Some washing machines do not have enough capacity to load a duvet. Bosch WAN28201 helps you clean your duvet, and that is why it is equipped with a Duvet setting. The water jets into the machine and penetrate your thick load such as duvet, pillows, garden seat covers, and cushions: giving them a fresh look. 

The bars in the drum that moves the laundry from side to side are in a screwed design. Occasionally, they can come adrift and damage your clothes. They are also expensive to replace. Bosch WAN28201GB’s bars have no sharp edges, which make them hard to break.

Also, the features of this product are beneficial in all ways. The Bosch brand has tried to create a perfect washing machine for maximum use.

After purchasing the product, the next step is assembling the machine. This machine did not take us long to assemble. The product’s manual is simple to follow. It is written in simple English with illustrations at each stage. First, the machine is very easy to operate. There is a simple dial on the control panel where you can find all the machine’s programs. It also offers a great rinsing performance.

When using the cotton program, we realise that it uses less water compared to the Easy-Care program. Cotton shirts will not need ironing as they are not creased after the washing process is complete. If you are looking to protect your delicate items, this machine will cover all your laundry worries. All you need to do is to select the program that suits your delicate clothes.

The Bosch 28201GB washing machine boast having 11 programmes. The Night Wash program helps in reducing the levels of noise produced. 

The company is very confident with its products; it gives a longer warranty than some other washing machines. We were impressed with its 2-year standard guaranty on the whole machine and a separate 10-year warranty on the motor. We tested the machine and compared it with previous models, and there is no way they could compare to Bosch WAN28201GB.

Despite the Bosch washing machine having all these programs, it has other additional features for flexibility. With ActiveWater, we saved water and energy, which was facilitated by a two-step automatic load adjustment system. In just two steps, it identifies the load and makes sure it uses the correct resources to clean.
