    Door Mechanism broken
    by: Anonymous

    I bought this Bosch Washer new for my new home. On the first day, I ran it to do a test wash. At the end of the cycle, I got error code E:27, and the door won't open. Turns out this is a common problem with Bosch, and a repairman needs to come and replace the door lock (which will take a week). Not impressed.

    Door will not open
    by: Anonymous

    terrible customer service. Have had this model for a week and error 27 will not allow the door to open. Had someone come out to look at it and it will take a week or two to get this repaired. They were not helpful on the phone and did not take immediate action to get this problem resolved after only owning this machine a week.

    Delight turns to regret
    by: Okieyankeegirl

    This Bosch Nexxt 500 Plus replaced our Whirlpool Calypso, so we were delighted to have a washer that actually got clothes clean. Cons: require at least two items of similar weight for spin to work. Heavy items won't spin. Stop signal goes on forever until you turn it off manually. Requires to keep the door open to dry interior to prevent mold. Now, the fabric softener dispenser fills with water and won't drain, so after each load I have to remove the dispenser and drain the water. Maytag and Whirlpool make garbage products and I'm now adding Bosch to my list.
