Overpriced and poor quality

Lint filter barely lasted a year. Plastic latch on the door snapped - Designed fault as the whole door has to be replaced due to the built in plastic latch. Show details

Not a premium product - don’t recommend!!

Bought Bosch series 8 Tumble Dryer brand new. It worked ok until about a year ago (about 2 and a half years) when it started making a bearing noise. Now it is leaving the clothes damp and not drying properly. We have fastidiously maintained the lint filters kept them always clean and free of lint. The machine looks brand new. It is unfortunate that what should be a premium brand and costs a premium price should be so flawed. I read online now that this appears to be a common fault - without any user cleanable or repairable parts looks to be flawed in parts and design. Very disappointing. I would recommend to buy another brand as the this all occurred relatively shortly after the warranty expired!!

Designed to fail

The “self cleaning” condenser is designed so that it gets clogged with fluff and stops drying efficiently or at all after some time. Even though the lint filter was cleaned religiously after each load, it no longer heats up and dries anything. It seems that this is because the condenser is clogged and it’s too expensive to pay anyone to pull the entire thing apart to flush the condenser. So a $2.5k washer does not last more than 5 years. Not recommended. Show details

Not like other dryers the room stays dry

On the right top corner , there is a box you need to pull it out empty the water. Or simply connect the provided hose from the machine to sink. Sportswear. Option will dry the cloths completely in 1 hour and 10 minutes . I don’t like the other options since are runs for longer time . Show details

Super annoying especially because it’s expensive and a “top brand”

We splurged to match the dryer after hearing all the amazing technology. It's soooo annoying! I like to get my washing done load after load but after each load I need to feel it and usually put the warm program on an extra 20-60 mins. The normal settings leave the clothes slightly wet and if you don’t act immediately they start to smell. My washer (also Bosch) and drier take the same run time so ideally it’s one in one out until it’s all done but in reality it’s a lot of checking, resetting, leaving wet clothes in the dryer washer waiting on the previous load. Super annoying to keep on top of especially when running a busy household and I can’t stand that wet too long smell. I would not purchase again. Show details

Can’t live without my dryer

Have had our Bosch for years now is used daily sometimes for multiple loads and never missed a beat. Easy to clean the lint holder and tells you when it’s full which is handy. Love that it has a six star energy rating which means I do t feel guilty for using it and I also don’t have to iron my clothes. Would definitely buy again and recommend. Show details

Doesnt dry, Bosch technician said it was fine

Doesnt dry properly. After taking out a load of 5 pieces of clothes that are still damp after 2.5hrs of drying, i thought I should write something to warn others.

This is a terrible dryer. It takes all day to dry a full load. We got a technician out after a few months and they declared there was nothing wrong with it. This was our first dryer, and naively we believed them.

Don't know why we've persisted with it for so long, but next weekend I'm getting a hisense.

Looking at all the other problems people have had with Bosch heat pump dryers, I'd warn anyone from buying one. I certainly never am again. Show details

HI how can I stop washing from balling up in the dryer? THe drum only tumbles in 1direction so I constantly have to shake out items, especially sheets. Is there any way I can program the dryher to tumble both ways? thanks, Janet

Hi Janet - I find it helpful to avoid putting the sheets in on their own. If you add other items to the load, it tends to stop the sheets from bunching up. Good luck!

Hi, Can you stack the Bosch Serie 8 WTX88M20AU on Bosch Serie 6 WGA244U0AU. If this is possible, which stacking kit is required?

My new WTW87564au is extremely hot to touch on the sides and top, when operating. You could literally fry an egg on it and a child or older person could burn their skin. As a result it is heating my laundry quite shockingly. Apart from this, it functions as expected. I have previously used the Bosch WTX88mm(?) heat pump dryer which was always cool to touch, even if running for hours. So I feel this is faulty and have asked for a technician visit to check. Does anyone else have this issue with their dryers? Appreciate any responses.

Ours gets warm too, but not to that extreme.
