Summary: I bought both the washer/dryer so I could stack them. Prior to this washer, I owned a brand that never needed service and lasted about 15 years. I never had a problem until the 15th year. I purchased this combo at an appliance store and my two requirements were "No service calls" and "Basic buttons." I hoped to have them stackable but if that did not work, it was not a problem. I was quickly taken to the Bosch machines and assured that they are high quality.
Summary: I was told by the Bosch maintenance representative that all the energy savings comes from the spin cycle on the washer. The consequence is wrinkled clothes-very wrinkled. If you have anything with a string it will be so twisted up in all the clothes you will spend a frustratingly long time trying to de-tangle. There are no different settings for different size loads, large that's it (not very energy saving).
Summary: I had never heard of this brand, but after family recommendations, and thorough review of the features including a very large capacity, I decided to make a purchase. I am very pleased with my purchase. Clothes always come out clean.
Summary: Unit came with no visible damage, packed excellently. On starting unit, water leaked on the floor. On inspection, water extractor pump - motor joint was damaged. Suspect unit was dropped before packaging as there was slight deformaton in side panel. Required almost two weeks to get part and repair, works fine now. Though this was disappointing, interaction with, AJ, Bosch and repair service was excellent.
Summary: We replaced an old top loading washer with this model. We are very happy with it. It saves water and energy and does a very good job cleaning clothes. I like the large number of options available to tailor a wash to clothes, as well as the eco option if you have the time. You can even set a time for your laundry to be done, while you go to work!
Summary: My Old washer was a good one. It lived a long life but in the end, it was more work than it washed. This is my first front load but my Dad has had 3 now so I have some experiance with his. This one is easy to use, washes great and is super quiet. This machine is quieter than any of the ones that my Dad has had and he paid WAY more for his. This machine is also larger than his current one...that he paid WAY more for. I love it!
