The WAK24264IN model washing machine is more or less a replacement to Bosch’s older model WAK24168IN which had highly positive reviews from users. The good news is that the features and functions remain more or less the same.
With7 kg capacity and max. RPM of 1200, WAK24264IN has advanced features specifically designed keeping Indian customers in mind.
The major positive is that it has a variety of wash programs, flexibility in controlling temperature setting of each wash program and features like re-load function, anti-vibration design and monsoon program.
 

The areas where WAK24264IN lacks is mainly that the temperature can be set from cold to up to 60 degree Celsius, which is fairly good. But in LG and IFB, temperature can be cranked up to 95 degree Celsius for cotton and baby care segment.
Also, the inlet pipe that comes with the machine is just 1 metre long. So, if at your home, the tap is not really close to the washing machine, you may have to spend extra for a longer inlet pipe. There are few complaints about delays in installation as well as rude behaviour of technicians as well. So, be prepared!
Now, let us get on to the features of the washing machine that really makes it a Wow! Machine.

Bosch WAK2624 has a number of wash programs making it suitable for every need. In addition to regular programs like Wool, Silk, Daily Wash and Synthetics, it has kids wear and super clean programs for cleaning heavily soiled clothes without damaging the fabrics and Super 15/30 for quick wash within 15 and 30 minutes respectively. The Allergy Plus setting helps to keep the fabrics completely free off detergent residues. Thanks to these features, Bosch Washing Machines are certified by European Centre For Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF)
If you live in an area with heavy monsoon, you will find the Monsoon program especially useful. With this setting, you can remove the odour of damp clothes and reduce drying period by up to 10%.
Using the reload function, you can add or remove clothing even after a wash cycle has begun. This feature overcomes one of the major drawbacks of front-load washing machines.
 

Please do note that, though Bosch claims its front load washing machine works with low water pressure of 0.3 bar, many reviews say that a minimum water flow rate of 7-9 litre per minute is required for proper functioning of the washing machine.
Other features include-
Active Water, which optimizes water consumption and cleans the wash drum with hot water to remove detergent residue and bacteria;
Anti-vibration Design that reduces vibration and noise;
Speed Perfect, which reduces wash time by up to 65%;
Time delay, that helps you delay wash cycle from 1 to 24 hours—a feature especially useful for home with working husband and wife;
VoltCheck, which resumes wash cycle from where it has left in case of power failure;
WaterPlus, which increases water flow to completely rinse off detergents from clothes—useful for homes that have soft water.
The washing machine comes with 2-year complete warranty and 10 year warranty on drum.
A question frequently asked is about the difference between models WAK24264IN and WAK24168IN. Function wise, the two models are more or less the same. The only difference is that in WAK24264IN is the newer model, and you can adjust the temperature and RPM of each wash program, while in WAK24168, you can’t. WAK24264 also has a larger LED display. If these features are not quite important for you, you can save about Rs. 1-3k by buying Bosch’s WAK24168 model.

It has many advanced features like 3D washing system that creates a 360-degree current in the drum, thus completely dissolving detergents while washing and drawing out all residues while rinsing.

Other features include
Time delay,which can be set from 30 minutes up to 24 hours;
Express 15,for quick wash within 15 minutes;
Now, talking about the downsides of IFB Senorita Aqua, the main complaint observed is the delay in installation.
Next, IFB has belt drive technology and not direct drive technology like LG. Direct Drive technology is supposed to be superior as it means lesser parts and hence, lesser noise, vibration, wear and tear. Though experts still have not made a conclusive statement on it.
The Aqua Senorita VX model has the same functionality as that of Aqua Senorita SX model. The only difference is in its appearance. SX, which comes in silver looks a lot more polished and refined compared to VX, which comes in white colour. If you value features and don’t really mind about appearance, then, by all means opt for Aqua Senorita VX model which will help you save about Rs. 2500.
Overall Rating: 4/5 based on 316 customer reviews.
Though Bosch WAK24268In and IFB Senorita Aqua have comparable features, the reason why we recommend Bosch is because it has a few useful features that IFB doesn’t have, namely, wash programs like saree, monsoon and allergy plus. Bosch also has settings like Active Water to reduce water consumption and Speed Perfect to reduce wash time. However, if you get hard water supply at your home, then opt for IFB itself.

With 6 kg capacity, it has a maximum RPM of 1000 cycles and temperature range from cold up to 95 degree Celsius. The body is made from high quality plastic which is supposed to be rust resistant. This newer version also comes with a touch panel display that gives it a modern look and makes it easier to change settings.
The wash settings include baby care, skin care(which completely removes detergent residues), duvet, easy care, mix, cotton eco, cotton, sports wear, delicate, wool, intensive 60 and quick 30. It also has medic rinse, Intensive and Crease care options. The baby care setting is found to be especially useful for cleaning heavily soiled baby clothes and even remove poop and pee stains.
 

However, if you are someone who is always in a hurry, then you may not be quite happy with LG as their fastest wash cycle lasts 30 minutes while Bosch and IFB has quicker wash cycle of just 15 minutes.
