Very expensive and doesn’t dry the clothes
Very disappointing. I’m constantly putting damp clothes back in again for another long cycle… it just won’t dry the clothes… T-shirt material in particular but other materials too. Tonight I’ve put a very moderate load back in for the third time.. and that’s on the most hopeful setting :(
No-one tells you upon purchasing that it takes ages and often clothes will still not be dry. Read a lot of reviews before buying a drier.
Don’t waste your money
My brother recommended this dryer to me and I can’t stress how disappointed I am. Everything comes out damp, no matter how long I run it or what program. I want my drying to come out hot & steamy, not a damp mess that has to be hung on racks. Feel really ripped off. I will NEVER buy a self condenser again. My Bosch washing machine is fine, never had a problem but this dryer is an expensive joke.
My two year old dryer stopped heating after just two years of use. I will NEVER purchase another Bosch Product for as long as I live. I either want Bosch to repair this for free or replace for new !
Doesn't work effectively, same issue as others have previously posted about deteriorating drying performance
Purchased new in 2017 and used infrequently. During the first 12 months the dryer worked well and I was happy with the features. Unfortunately ever since it has gradually got worse to a current situation where the dryer cycle time is incredibly long and the contents remain very damp, even though I have maintained the dryer in accordance with the instructions. Very frustrated as it was expensive and Bosch's premium dryer, not sure if it is a design fault?
Purchased at Appliances Online.
Paid $1440 in 2017 and used very sparingly up until last year where we used it almost once a day. Recently have been having issues with condenser container full (but it’s empty).
Have tried to pull machine apart looking for a filter or something else that needs to be cleaned but cannot find anything of the sort.
The manual says nothing about how to address in this event. I’ve cleaned the sensor inside the barrel and am sure there’s a blockage somewhere else.
When I tilt the machine upwards, all this water leaks out of the machine which makes me think:
1. This machine is not totally sealed
2. There’s obviously a tank somewhere else that is not user accessible....

Absolute waste of money.. fit for the dump not the laundry! Good if you like 8 hr cycles and damp clothes!
Family of 5 with 3 young boys so we have heaps of washing.. This machine has never dried clotes very well and even when it does the cycles take between 4-8 hrs.. I usually have to add a manual timed program after initial cycle to get them fully dry.. I honestly can't believe they get away with selling machines like this..
To say i'm disappointed is understatement.. we got robbed...
Will be replacing this with a different brand.. I won't be buying Bosch again.

Were to buy LG but bought Bosch and regret now.
Doesnt dry things in a timely manner and have to run multiple cycles . Waste of electricity and time. Extended warranty team came and said no issues though the issue still exists . When paying around 2000$ including extended warranty to buy this , I thought would save electricity , durable and as its BOSCH would be a great product. Now wonder why I bought. This is the first time I am buy an appliance other than LG .

Does not live up to the quality you expect when buying Bosch appliances
My 3 kids swim daily = heaps of towels. The load tonight has been in for 6 hours! Meticulously maintained and cleaned. My 18yearold simpsondryer was far better. Quitedisappointed fora Boschappliance.

Electricity Guzzler that doesn’t dry clothes
I too am bitterly disappointed in this dryer
I only have success with towels (towels only loads) on the towel setting - anything else can run for example on the cotton cycle for over 3 hours and still be damp. I have tried many different cycles or timed periods with very little success. It does not appear to get “hot” enough to dry the clothes. Honestly would never recommend this product - feel duped - Has been a very expensive lemon
Clothes are constantly damp
You put the clothes on a timer, and min dryer stops well before the set timer. I’ve tried every setting, but it leaves my clothes damp and wet. Worst purchase

After looking for a solution as to why the alarm keeps going off on my Bosch dryer when the container has just been emptied I have noted that loads of others are having the same issue with this dryer not drying clothes properly - they dont dry and then smell!

USELESS - headed for the tip!
USELESS! Doesn't dry clothes, regardless of the setting. I clean the lint filter after each load and empty the water tray but to no avail. I feel so cheated. My old Kleenmaid (too big for the cupboard that passes as a laundry in our new house) was a workhorse - dried huge loads quickly. This Bosch dryer is a waste of space. In all conscience I couldn't pass it on to anyone else ... it's going to the tip!

Purchased in June 2020 at The Good Guys.
Every 2 min stops and can not be programmed. Red on Bosh forum that is common problem and can not be fixed .
No matter what program I try ( cotton, towels , ) and select time 30min, 45min... only works for 2 min and stops - so annoying . I have spent 3 days since I got

Terrible..does not dry the clothes
I've always bought Bosch..thought this would be a good dryer..WRONG...its awful. Maybe afterhours on end it ends up drying...complete waste of money.
This product is not providing what we bought it for..:(

I have a seri 8 condensed dryer and I can’t work out what setting is good for drying sheets. They always just end up in a ball wet in the middle????
This is what I use for everything .. (I got a tip from someone). Initially I thought drier was faulty but alas nope! Nothing can be dried in any hurry even if you want to choose it to be.
Timed Program warm. Turn off “easy iron”!
Needs 1’20” or more depending size of sheets. But you’ve got to be on attention and keep unballing the sheets as the drier only spins one way. Seems unpredictable when - and if - it’s going to get hot, usually near the very end.
Good luck, JJJ
The door latch on my machine has snapped off it is 4yrs old and still under extended warranty but both Bosh and extended warranty refusing to fix as the broken latch has caused physical damage to the front of the door (directly in front of the latch). I heard this is a problem with this machine when I brought it and thought it would be fixed as a manufacturing fault if it were to occur. Has anyone else had this problem?
mine is 4 Years old as well and the latch has broken, Can it be fixed by buying a new door?
