Big Mistake! So rough on clothes...


This machine is so rough on clothes. No matter how gentle a cycle I do, clothes come out battered, twisted and soooo creased. I didn't need to iron with my last machine - my clothes look so worn and creased after using this machine for 6 weeks. Huge mistake in choosing this product. Should've gone with Miele!

I emailed Bosch to find out if this is abnormal for this machine - despite using a low spin cycle. They replied by asking me to call the customer care line for tips on how to use the machine - really?

Purchased in September 2019.

E23 error. Can't open the door with wet clothes stuck within it. Called Bosch service. Earliest service available 5 days later! Doesn't know if it can be opened manually even though model number given. Poor backup service.

About a month ago we purchased this machine, it works wonderfully! The loads are generally washed on either mix at 40 C or cottons at 50 C.

After the last wash the drum clean light flashed. How many wash cycles should there normally be between running the drum clean cycle, as it hasn't been heavily used? Drum clean was run before first use.

Does the detergent used affect this?

Hi MickyB A.,
Thank you for your question. The Drum Clean indicator light will flash if you have not
used a programme at 60 °C or higher for some time. We recommend you run the programme (without laundry).
Use standard washing powder or a detergent containing bleach. To prevent foaming, only use half the amount of
detergent recommended by the detergent manufacturer. Do not use detergents intended for woollens or delicates.
If you have any issues please do not hesitate to contact our team on 1300 369 744. Kind regards Bosch Home Australia
