  • My contribution to the environment! Bosch!

    May 25, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Less water and soap usage, less friction on clothes, clothes are more clean!!!
    Cons: Slightly small front load, cannot comfortably wash king-sized comforters!

    Summary: Bosch makes a fantastic product. I cannot say it enough! I have already reviewed the Bosch dryer, and thought about how I would work on the washer. This has been a bit tougher to write about, because it has TOO many options! As I ... read more

    Pros: Haven't found one yet
    Cons: Costly mistake

    Summary: My Bosch Model 2401 is about 4 1/2 years old. I purchased it new and only purchased it because I was looking for a high end washing machine that was reliable, energy efficient and long life. This was the package that was "sold" to me. Especially the ... read more

  • Very disappointed with Bosch Washer

    Jul 29, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None that override the cons
    Cons: Completely unreliable and not worth the money

    Summary: We purchased our washer and dryer five years ago with the representation from the retailer that we "would never have to buy another washer and dryer again." Boy, was this statement wrong!! We used the machines for two years without problems. Then we ... read more

  • hate this machine

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: nothing
    Cons: parts, reliability

    Summary: If you asked me 3 years ago when we moved into a new house with brand new Bosch washing machine and dryer how I like them I'm sure my review would have been fine just like some of the raving reviews I've read here. They were not my pick; the builder of ... read more

  • Great when it works

    May 11, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great job cleaning, uses little electricity, water and detergent.
    Cons: small capacity, not as reliable as it could be.

    Summary: When I got this machine over five years ago, I was very pleased. Whites came out whiter, and clothes came out cleaner. Despite its small capacity, it can be loaded until full, and still do a good job, since there is no agitator. This machine senses ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None. The best thing it does so far is washes our delicates carefully.
    Cons: Dingy whites, stains, streaks, poor company support,expensive

    Summary: WE TOTALLY HATE THIS MACHINE! We purchased this machine 4 years ago after listening to the hype: uses less water, soap, electricity, diluted fabric softener, no problems, gentler on clothes, etc. Well this washer is a nightmare that never ends. Our ... read more

  • Avoid

    Jan 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Energy and water efficient, does a great job cleaning clothes, takes up little space
    Cons: Poor quality, unreliable, expensive to repair, small capacity

    Summary: We have owned the Bosch washer/dryer system for 3+ years. We bought because we were sold on the benefits of front-load washing over top load. We believed we could get 20+ years of use out of the machines. We also appreciated the efficiency. They ... read more

  • Buyer Beware on Bosch Washer and Dryer

    Apr 3, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fits in small space
    Cons: Small load capacity, severely wrinkles clothes, horrible customer service.

    Summary: I have been using washers and dryers for over 35 years and this is absolutely the worst combination I have ever used. They have very small capacities, you have to use a lot of Fabric Softner, and you get wrinkled clothes no matter what you do. To make ... read more

  • Perfect for the urban lifestyle

    Apr 2, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, low operating cost, easy to maintain.
    Cons: Washer settings are strange, long wash/dry times, delicate parts.

    Summary: I've had my Bosch for two and a half years now and I can say that it's functioned like a champ. Aside from some flimsiness of the dryer's vent access panel, and having problems deciphering the washer's settings, I have yet to register any complaints. ... read more

    Pros: Cleans really well Easy to use
    Cons: Expensive service Small size Must bend down Swallows pocket change Loud

    Summary: I have had the washer and dryer pair for about one year and I am reasonably satisfied with it. Some positive notes I have about the washer: 1) I immediately noticed that it cleans better than the older top-loader we used to use. Stains came out of ... read more

  • Never loved a major appliance before

    Sep 5, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: VERY quiet, no load imbalance problems, very energy efficient, gets clothes cleaner than my top-loader.
    Cons: Takes a little getting used to. Small dimensions. Operating instructions a little vague.

    Summary: I recently built a brand-new home, and wanted everything to be perfect, so when it came time to pick appliances I was willing to do quite a bit of research. I had been hearing about front-loading washers for a while, and decided that was the way to go in ... read more

  • Love my Bosch

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: compact, uses less detergent, very quiet -- works great!
    Cons: small washer, long wash/dry times, VERY low door for putting in clothes

    Summary: When we bought a new house, I was determined to have laundry facilities on the second floor. It makes no sense to me to create all the dirty clothes on the top floor, shlep them into the basement to wash them and then shlep them back up two flights of ... read more

    Pros: You will save money on your energy bill
    Cons: initial cost is still a little high

    Summary: I was tempted to buy a cheaper US made front loader, I checked the main US models but it really is the first years of the new designs. They will improve and work out the kinks but given the choice I chose a brand that in Europe is very highly thought of. ... read more

    Pros: the clothes come out clean
    Cons: This washer breaks down often. It has many plastic parts that break easily.

    Summary: This washing machine breaks down often. The service is not good because it takes too long to get a service person to fix it, so I spend too much time in the laundromat! i do not recommend this product because there are too many plastic parts and they ... read more

  • Bosch WFK24 washer is Awesome

    Oct 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Energy efficient, uses less H20, quick wash, convenient front loader
    Cons: Small opening, buzzer at end of cycle can be annoying.

    Summary: Our laundry set up is located in a converted shower so size constraints narrowed down our choices to European models. We considered the Miele (to expensive), the Asko (Madonna's choice) and the Bosch. We selected the Bosch because it was the lowest ... read more

    Cons: PRICE, may be small for some, no color range

    Summary: If you are not willing to pay $900 for a washing machine please hit your browser's "back" button. For those of you who are still with me, the Bosch product(s) (I have the dryer also) are quite simply the best you will get. I have had both ... read more
