Fragile door seal caused leaks in under 10days

published

I recently purchased this washer dryer to replace my older Electrolux. Initially I was impressed with how quickly and quietly it washed clothes. I stayed to the weight limits, turned clothes inside out, and only after a few washes a year appeared in the lower part of the door seal. As I now have found, other people have suffered the same issue. The replacement seal is about $160 plus additional labour costs. For a machine that costs nearly $2000 I am incredibly disappointed.

Purchased in for $1,900.

Never using Bosch again

published

Absolutely ridiculously loud beeping at the end. I had to wonder if it was a joke someone at the store was playing but turns out others have also commented on this. Can't possibly use it at night because it will wake everyone up with the constant beeping at the end of the cycle. Has also put me off buying from the brand again with other products as well.

Great BUT

published

I only had this machine for a week it's super quiet washes great. It doesn't seem like a 10kg seems smaller to me.it has multiple settings they vary from 15min to 3n half hours I also love the fact that the machine dosen't need hot water it heats to certain temperature itself.I had one problem when I opened the box and put it in my laundry. The cord is to short never seen a cord so short now I have to use extension cord. Its a bit annoying! Other then that can't fault it. I will update if something goes wrong

With 3 teenage boys in high school my Bosch front loader is in constant use and not once has it let me down. I love my Bosch and can't imagine life without it!

Mould creating washing machine

published

This washing machine even with door open when not in use, appropriate laundry liquid and hot washes to remove bleach. The mould is a constant issue, disgusting and would never buy another. And to be expected to have to replace seal at our cost when it went mouldy not long after use. Keep well away from this machine.

Disappointed

published

My old top loader (other brand) broke and I bought this 13 months ago. I was happy with it but it stopped working properly. It didn't spin. I thought it might be a drain problem but technician said it's a defect in a control system and he needed to order parts from Germany because it's not stocked in Australia. I was told that it might take 6 or 8 weeks or longer. I have a big family and needed to use washing machine everyday so I ended up buying another small one for temporaly use until I get it fixed. My first Bosch purchase was a big disappointment and am not sure if I buy this brand again or not.

Purchased in at Appliances Online for $1,073.

published

Bought a lemon! Very 1st machine cycle omitted massive toxic rubber fumes throughout house. (? belt/door flange burning) Full refund offered by retailer. (RRP $1150) Bosch offered zero customer service support UK based) & suggested technician visit!!! Machine was only delivered half an hour earlier. Series 6 sub standard. My previous BOSCH was German quality. Series 6 manufactured in Turkey. Will never purchase BOSCH again. DO NOT recommend. Have now ordered Miele.

There is a way of producing a spin only cycle. Choose Rinse/Spin from the rotary dial then turn off the water/rinse button (second from the right). Should reduce the total time to around 12 mins.
