Any thoughts on Bosch Washing Machines? Here in Bangalore, Bosch is top rated seller on Front Load WMs. More than half of my offshore team use Bosch WMs. Siemens also have showrooms here.
Recently bought Siemens from Pai in Banerghatta road. The washing machine appears to be promising, very less sound. Still need to read the complete user manual. It's 7kg front loading n takes around 45 mins to wash complete load. Excellent washing for sure. Bosch provides the service n I'm pretty sure it must be good.

Will post complete review after a week or so.

Air Bubble Wash System
Millions of air bubbles get generated and released into the water. They penetrate deep into the cloth fibres, activate the detergent and help to release the most stubborn dirt molecules. The Air Bubble Wash System infuses freshness into clothes and ensures a perfect wash.

3D Wash System
It adds dynamic movement to the water and ensures that you get a cleaner and fresher wash for your clothes anytime. A special water system with nozzles, circulates the water 360° in the drum. The detergent dissolves 100% and penetrates the clothes deeper for a cleaner wash. During rinsing, fresh water penetrates deep into the clothes to wash off all traces of detergent. The clothes come out cleaner and fresher.

Aqua Energie
A special built-in aqua filter that treats hard water improving the life and performance of your machine. It breaks the bi-carbonates in the water and reduces them to crystals. These crystals are microscopically small and flow with the water instead of forming crusts. The filtered water is soft and facilitates wetting of clothes. The detergent enzymes dissolve in the water giving your clothes a better wash. It reduces scaling on machine components.

Crescent Moon Drum
The crescent moon shaped pattern on the inner drum protects clothes during the wash. Water curves up in a swoosh pattern and prevents the clothes from rubbing against the wall of the steel drum. Clothes get a gentle yet thorough cleaning.

User Friendly LCD Display
It helps to select and monitor wash programs easily.

Laundry Add
Missed out on your favourite shirt? This feature lets you add laundry even after wash cycle has started.

Auto Imbalance System
If the wash load is unevenly distributed, the washing machine will re-distribute the load to balance it inside the drum. In this process, the washing machine will start and stop during rotation cycles as it balances the load.

Foam Control System
It automatically senses the generation of foam and activates a dilution system to dissolve the excessive foam. It helps maintain the wash quality.

Protective Rat Mesh
An additional cover at the bottom of the machine protects against possible damage caused by rodents.

Tub Clean
Regular use of washing machine results in development of fungus and bacteria in the tub which leads to bad odour. Before selecting tub clean feature, empty the drum add some amount of detergent or descalant. This feature eliminates any impurities, scaling, bacteria and unpleasant smell from the washing machine.
