    did we buy a lemon ?
    by: hans shilgalis

    We just bought a house with 2yr old bosch 2090 front load model -- the unit looks pristine but there is LOTS of mold on the front rubber gasket. we spent $200+ in parts and labor to replace -- AND then noticed more mold and then call bosch -- they said front loaders might get mold in them
    i can believe this was bosch's response -- live with it.

    do we have a lemon, or have you had the same exp?

    good in small doses
    by: Michael

    This washing machine came with my condominium, and was brand new when I first began using it. Like any major appliance, it has its positives and negatives.

    This is a space efficient front-loading machine, so it can't handle very large loads. It usually takes around and hour to an hour and fifteen minutes for it to finish a load of laundry. However, as I mentioned before it doesn't take up a lot of room, and can handle being the bottom of a washer-dryer stack.

    On the positive side it generally does a satisfactory job of cleaning my clothes. I have put some very dirty clothes in it and they have always come out clean. It does have many different settings for wash temperature and time. Furthermore, it gives you the ability to run individual cycles (such as spin or rinse) if you would like to.

    I have had some negative experiences with this washer. Occasionally, the water will not drain properly, and the clothes will be very heavy with water when the washer is finished. I end up having to manually open a valve on the front to drain the water, and then run the spin cycle to finish the load. This generally happens only with heavy loads such as towels.

    I also have a suspicion that the washer is tough on my clothes. It seems like I lose a shirt every couple of months with a tear in some part of it. While I can't directly pinpoint the problem to the washer, I do believe that it has something to do with it.

    The final point I have about this washer is that it can be loud. I have to shut the door to keep the spin cycle from being an annoyance to everyone in my place.

    In summary, I will likely not purchase a similar model for my next washing machine. I would recommend it for someone who doesn't have a lot of laundry. It is space efficient, so if you have a condominium and not a lot of people contributing laundry then it makes a satisfactory choice. However, I cannot recommend buying one.

    Bosch Axxis / WFL2060UC/27
    by: Anonymous

    My Bosch washing machine has not been good at all.
    Motor (spin) had to be replaced 3 years after purchase. Maybe I put too much in machine, so machine worked harder, maybe. Now appliance tech told me the control panel has exploded, literally inside the panel. Get new control panel in and it does not proceed through all cycles. It stops before final rinse and spin. New one is on order because it is defective. He was not able to stay through entire wash cycle to make sure it works. Who could?

    Talked to appliance tech and he said he just serviced another one where the control panel had exploded inside. Do not get this model! Try Miele. I have had pretty good success with their washing machines.

    Bosch compact washer
    by: Anonymous

    Hi Michael,

    Read with interest your comment about your machine being rough on your clothes for some unknown reason. I am comparing the current compact Bosch Axxis - WAS2016UC with comparable models by Miele and AEG/Electrolux.

    When running my fingers against the drum in a "reverse" direction, I noticed that there is a rough "cheese grater" effect which is not the case with the other machines. I haven't checked the full-size Bosch models to see if the drum is engineered in the same way, as it's only the compact version that I want. If it weren't for this concern, I would have bought the Bosch without hesitation, even though in Canada it's about the same price as the Miele compact (W1612). The salesperson I spoke to was aware of the "cheese grater" effect but did not mention it until I brought the subject up.

    Does anyone have any comments about the above, as I have found nothing online so far and want to make my purchasing decision. I could increase the use of mesh washing bags to avoid any snags but shouldn't have to in this calibre of machine.
