  • Bosch - ok...

    Oct 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Still cleans clothes very well after 7 years.
    Cons: - vibration when on the 1200 RPM spin cycle
    - can no longer read LCD panel

    Summary: Well, we've had this washer, the Bosch Nexxt Premium WFMC6400UC, for just over a month and both my wife and I are extremely satisfied with our purchase and its performance. The one negative is when on the 1200 RPM cycle there is some ... read more

  • DO NOT BUY THIS WASHER

    Dec 14, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice styling.  Looks great.  Wonderful menu choices.
    Cons: Flawed pump design.  Inconsistent operation.  Overly sensitive to sudsing, even with HE soap.  Poor support

    Summary: This is a premium priced machine which is probably built to the highest design standards but it performs terribly.  90% of the time it works flawlessly.  But in 1 out of 10 cycles it will say "drainage blocked".  It is exceedingly ... read more

  • Impressive, intuitive washer, easy to use and fun to watch!

    Aug 2, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans well, uses very little water, quiet, handy tilted tub design
    Cons: none

    Summary: When our new Bosch 6400 washer arrived last week, I made sure that the installers used a level and the "wiggle test" to make sure it was absolutely level on our slab floor. (I have read that errors in leveling account for most vibration problems in ... read more

  • Hypnotic and Breath Taking - Eats Socks

    Jun 16, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well built, super efficient and quiet, made in the USA.
    Cons: Really didn't need the fancy display. Traps baby socks outside of drum.

    Summary: Can you stare at a campfire for hours? Watch the wave crash upon a rocky beach until dark falls? Stay away from the Bosch WFMC 6400 or you will be stuck in your basement transfixed for hours at a time. I don't know what it is, but I could watch three ... read more

  • Great idea...Not very efficient

    Mar 13, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: When working properly, is very efficient. Spins clothes nearly dry- cutting back on drying time.
    Cons: No "rinse" cycle for when you want to just rinse the clothes.

    Summary: We have had our Bosch washer for nearly a year, and for the last 5 months have been battling with Bosch over the intermittent "Drainage Blocked" (when it really isn't) message that pops up just as the machine is nearly done with it's final spin, after ... read more

  • is it an earthquake..no it's the washer...

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: uses less water, spins fast, extra heat cycle. easy to use buttons.
    Cons: shakes the house, dr only opens on rightside, long buzzer.

    Summary: I have had the washer for 3 months now. i think i does a good job washing. it appears to use very little water. i dont use as much soap. i purchased it for the brand and the size. i had a neptune which washed good but kept breaking down within the 4 yrs ... read more

  • High efficiency, high quality, high price

    Jan 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unmatched efficiency and quietness. Gentle on loads. High spin speed dries clothes well.
    Cons: Long cycle times. High price.

    Summary: We just replaced a 4 year-old Calypso (but that's a different review) with the Bosch 6400, so I'm comparing a bit. The bosch uses about half the water of the the other high efficiency washer. Pretty incredible, but I'd recommend you don't watch the ... read more

  • Nexxt Premium washer is truly premium

    Dec 22, 2004 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Quietness, auto-water level, cycles, special options, ease of operation, performance, styling, LCD information window
    Cons: Softener and bleach receptacles are small and close together. Extra care required when adding bleach.

    Summary: I recently purchased the Bosch Nexxt Premium washer and matching dryer after being a loyal Kenmore customer for over 20 years. I also looked at the Whirlpool Duet and the Fisher Paykel. I chose Bosch because of quietness,features and styling, but I was ... read more

  • Very bad functionality

    May 12, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice, fairly quiet.
    Cons: Very poor functional design, very long wash times, service does not exist

    Summary: DO NOT BUY this washer. I always thought Bosch made a good product and stood behind it. Now I believe they hide behind this washer so the customer can not find them. You don't get to talk with a real Bosch person but are routed to a service company. It ... read more

  • Stick With A Top Loader!

    Pros: Would make a good boat anchor
    Cons: Salesman

    Summary: Over two hour wash cycle so 4 loads will take you about 10 hours. Musty smell which is left in cloths. I just love getting out of the shower and drying my face and having it smell like someone's feet. Purchased this Bosch after fighting with Matag ... read more

  • Steer clear of this washer

    Pros: Cleans well, looks nice
    Cons: Poor quality, poor service, poor me

    Summary: The first machine that was delivered did not work. The appliance store (not Bosch) replaced it. The second one was no better and had to be repaired due to bad shock absorbers surrounding the drum. This one also developed a leak underneath when it ... read more

    Pros: The machine does a good job of washing the clothes.
    Cons: The washing machine smells and must be dried after each use.

    Summary: I would not recommend this machine.The washing machine works as recommended. However, the water drainage holes in the front gasket are on the side, instead of the bottom, not allowing the water to completely drain after a cycle. Because of this ... read more

    Pros: Good Cleaning, Temp Boost feature, Timed Start, 1200RPM spin, Lots of options
    Cons: Long cycle times, Could be a little bigger

    Summary: This has been a really good washer for us. We too have run into the "Drainage Blocked" problem that people commonly speak of. We talked to our appliance store about it, they called Bosch, and the cause of it is too much soap. This washer uses so ... read more

  • Go with top loader if wash time is important

    Jan 13, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Well made machine
    Cons: Long wash cycles (but typical for front loaders)

    Summary: There is no control over washing time; similar, I believe to other front loaders. The "quick wash" cycle start -to- finish washing time is 40 minutes (the shortest cycle available). Where most top loaders you can control wash time (4-15 minute ... read more

  • Give me back my Maytag.

    Pros: It's quiet and uses very little water.
    Cons: Vibrates and gets off balance easily. Drainage Block feature goes on for no reason.

    Summary: We retired our 25 year old Maytag washer and went with Bosch because we were so impressed with our Bosch dishwasher. I HATE this machine! It vibrates so bad it actually creeps across the floor on loads of laundry that my Maytag never had trouble with. ... read more

    Pros: Excellent performance, quiet, cool factor, very efficient.
    Cons: Expensive.

    Summary: We have had the Nexxt Premium for about 3 months now. Yes it was a little expensive, but it does an excellent job of cleaning your clothes. Basically all that you have read in the prior posts about its' performance is accurate, it is a great washer. ... read more

    Pros: Clean clothes, quiet, low water useage, sadly entertaining.
    Cons: "drainage blocked" issue, musty smell.

    Summary: Bought the machine for efficiency and quietness, it has delivered on those counts. Does have long cycles, but we've adjusted. 5 person household. 2 girls. LOTS of towels. We have run into the intermittent "drainage blocked" problem. Always ... read more

    Pros: Gentle on clothes. Quiet operation. Conserves water.
    Cons: Vibrates like a jumbo jet during 1200 spin cycle.

    Summary: Yes, my Bosch Premium Washer is gentle on clothes, uses half the water of my Kenmore but...cycles are very long so it takes me forever to wash the laundry for my family of 4. The machine is very quiet during the wash cycle but gets very loud and ... read more

  • Bosch Front Load Nexxt Washing Machine Vibration

    Pros: When it seemed to work a nice operating machine. But not the case now.
    Cons: The machine does not balance the load consistently. It shakes the whole house.

    Summary: Warning to all... Bosch does not stand behind these machines. It looks like you have about a 50% chance of getting a good one. We received a shaking, vibrating and squeaking machine. After numerous service calls they keep telling me that my one ... read more

    Pros: Simplicity in design, excellent functionality, very very quiet
    Cons: Pricey, but well worth it.

    Summary: Without a doubt the nicest, quietest washer I've ever owned. Well built, easy to operate, clothes finish cycles without the detergent residue you find in short cycle machines. If noise is a factor, Bosch makes the quietest machine on the market. If ... read more
