Bosch Axxis

by Laura
(Farmingdale, ME)

My husband and I chose our Bosch washer and dryer very carefully. We had a 3 year old and a newborn at the time and planned to use cloth diapers. We needed something that was very energy and water efficient to handle the large volume of laundry we would be doing.

Additionally we needed something that cleaned very thoroughly considering the fact that we would be washing dirty diapers. We looked high and low before settling on the Bosch Axxis washer and dryer.

This washer has a very high Energy Star rating. It also uses very minimal water in its wash cycles. Another great feature is that it heats its own water, a God send for a family with an oil hot water heater!

Another attractive feature of this washer and the corresponding clothes dryer is the size and ability to be stored in a very compact way. This washer came with a stacking kit so that you could stack the washer and dryer if you were short on space. Even side by side these machines are tiny in comparison with much of what is on the market.
Now let's talk cleaning power. This is one awesome machine!

There are many options for extra rinses, spinning speed, and even temperature adjustment. It is very hard to wash something in this machine and have a stain not come out. It is truly amazing. I was always very happy with the results on those aforementioned cloth diapers and a still happy now that my kids are out of diapers and on to grass and ketchup stains.

This is a really great washing machine, I cannot recommend it enough!

Best one i've ever had

The best clothes dryer I have owned is my current Bosch Axxis dryer.

We purchased it because it is extremely energy efficient. It has a much better Energy Star rating than most mainstream brands.
This model features a "butterfly" drying pattern, meaning that it spins first in one direction, then in the other. This action is supposed to be easier on fabrics and help clothing to last longer.

This dryer features several different options for drying clothing. I most frequently use the sensor dry so that I can set it and forget it. There are seven different levels of dryness available for selection. The user simply selects the level that most closely matches the wetness level of the current load. The dryer will keep drying until the clothes are dry. Also available are air fluff, timed dry, and delicate dry options.

Another nice feature of this dryer (and Bosch's compatible washing machines, which I will review in another post) is that they are very compact, sleek, and attractive. In fact, the washer and dryer come with a stacking kit, so if you are really pressed for space you can set them up one on top of the other. Even side y side they are much more slim than most brands on the market and are ideal for a small home.

This being said, do not worry about the amount of clothes this dryer can handle. While it is small on the outside, the inner drum can take a rather large load and dry in efficiently.

All in all I have been very happy with this brand and this dryer in particular. It is slightly more expensive than others, but, you do get what you pay for.
