Should I buy a Siemens or Bosch washing machine?

Both are decent makes and from a quick check they appear to be around the same price. The Bosch is rated very highly in the latest Which? reviews although as with almost all washing machines these days Which? say it's "poor" at rinsing. (Details of Which? 1 month online trial and copy of Which? magazine offer for just £1)

Siemens are normally a more expensive brand so the reason the prices are similar is because the Siemens only has a 6Kg drum although it has a 1400 spin but the Bosch has 1200. The Bosch is a 7kg drum (a Siemens with a 7kg drum is likely to be more expensive).

With these two washing machines I would say the winner should be the one with the most important feature to you - a 7kg drum or a 1400 spin. If it's the big drum go for the Bosch but if spin speed is more important maybe you'll favour the Siemens.

Although the Siemens has a 1400 spin and the Bosch only 1200 they are both rated as spin efficiency B. This shows that either many spin speeds are a con and there's little difference between 1400 and 1200 or the eco labels are flawed because they don't highlight any difference wand give each speed the exact same rating. I have verbose comments on both these subjects here - Washing machine spin speeds | ECO labels and washing machines
