Summary: I researched this washer and bought it in 2008. It has done many many washes.. Our children would bring home their laundry and it has performed great. Clean washes. My clothes always smell great and are very clean.. I am now dealing with the washer filling with water, ready to go into the cycle, and only hear it click from behind the machine, and then the drum does not move. Had a repair person out.
Summary: I searched all over the internet and read reviews. Finally I settled on the Bosch Nexxt 100. I am so pleased with it. It is such a quiet washer and yes it takes long to wash, about an hour but atleast my clothes are coming out a lot cleaner then my top loader. My clothes spend less time in the dryer now becuase the washing machine spins all the water out. You may have problems if you overload your washer and have things jumbled together, it says it in the manual.
Summary: I recently purchased this washer, and all I can say is I would never buy it again. The wash time takes anywhere up to 1 1/2 hours per wash. The clothes are not all that well cleaned. Pants come out in knots. The beeping at the end of the cycle is very annoying. If you wash clothes with a front loader be prepared to be literally washing clothes all day!
Summary: Don't like: water settings,lenght of time to wash a load,can't have dual temps ex.warm wash/cold rinse, buzzer isn't loud enough to hear upstairs. Most of all: DIDN'T SEEM TO SAVE ANY WATER! Can't stop the washer when a sock or something small gets trapped in the well in the window..stays wet and have to wring out myself. Never really know where I am in the cycle:will jump from spin back to wash to spin to what ever. Where am I? How much longer?!!
