Bosch WKD28540 Waschtrockner / B / kWh/Jahr / 1400 UpM / Waschen: 6 kg / washing-machine Review
Consumer Reviews Bosch WKD28540 Waschtrockner / B / kWh/Jahr / 1400 UpM / Waschen

3 Reasons For

Has a Load Balancing System

The WKD28540 has a load balancing system, which is unusual. Most of the other small washing capacity washer dryers that have been on the market for around the same time as the WKD28540 do not have a load balancing system.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Cable Length

The cable lengths of small washing capacity washer dryers that came out more than two years ago range from 1.5m to 2.3m, and the average cable length is 1.8m. With a cable length of 2.2 meters, the WKD28540 has a quite long cable length compared to most of the other small washing capacity washer dryers that are a similar age to the WKD28540.

Chart Edit

Very Low Annual Water Consumption When Washing

Across all the washer dryers of this spec and age the annual water consumptions when washing range from 9,000L to 36,000L, and the average annual water consumption when washing is 13,000L. At only 9,000 liters, the Bosch WKD28540 has a fairly low annual water consumption when washing compared to most of the other washer dryers of a comparable type and age to the WKD28540.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Reversible Door

The WKD28540 does not have a reversible door. Most of the other small washing capacity washer dryers that have been around for a comparable time to the WKD28540 also do not have a reversible door.

We compared all the other washer dryers which also have a reversible door to this washer dryer and we think the Fagor 3FS-3611[plb_1667189_price], or the Neff V6540X0[plb_187461_price] is also worth considering.

When compared to other washer dryers of a similar spec and age to the WKD28540, the washing & drying cycle time of the WKD28540 of 338 minutes is one of the longest.
