Much improved over earlier models
By Joe Paloka
Though I’ve been running it for slightly under two months, I am extremely pleased with all aspects of operation. Sure, compared to the run of the mill American machines, it is costlier, slower, and has a smaller load capacity, but it fits my space perfectly, and has really been a wonderful machine. I’ve owned similar Bosch products for years (for the same reason of limited space,) and the improvement in the current model is truly amazing. For my personal needs, this was the best machine on the market. I recommend it wholeheartedly. (If you plan on stacking a dryer upon it, you’ll more or less be limited to purchasing the matching Bosch dryer because AC power supply most ideally comes from the dryer, and the matching dryer unit stacks perfectly upon this washer.) The manufacturer does not STRESS STRONGLY ENOUGH the importance of removing the four (4) packing bolts/screws from the back of the washer. Those steps are easily overlooked. MAKE CERTAIN you have removed four (4) very long bolts/screws from the back of the washer BEFORE you ever turn it on. Search until you find them!!! You can easily install the machine yourself (with your wife or husband, your friend, your teen-ager, etc.,) if you take your time, level judiciously, have a small step ladder handy, in case you’re stacking the dryer atop the washer, etc.) However, if your deal includes installation, that’s probably worth $50-$100. I ordered through Amazon, and the delivery was extremely speedy; but then, I order almost everything I buy through Amazon… so I was not surprised by the good service.

Very happy with this machine. It replaced an old ultra compact (CREDA) which was 15 years old. This machine is extremely quiet, washes great and is easy to operate. I am not a heavy commercial-like household and laundry needs are simple. I use Meyers detergents only and a little dry non chlorine “bleach” in the wash on whites and everything is done well. I also make sure to leave the door open after doing loads since mold would be unavoidable given the tight door seal without drying the unit out. All in all I’m very pleased with this unit.

Don’t Buy This Mold Factory
I’ve done everything recommended, and still the mold smell persists in the washer. Bleach, vinegar, ‘cleaners’ dry it out for days on end – nothing works. Now my clothes come out smelling moldy, too. Don’t buy this mold factory. Bosch should be ashamed to put their name on this piece-o-junk.
Matching dryer has it’s own set of problems – requiring annual (expensive) visit from the repairman to clean out unreachable lint traps inside the machine.
