POOR VALUE FOR MONEY
It seemed like a good idea- slow but quiet, no belts to fail, lots of capacity, a steam programme for serious cleaning. Two years on the machine takes for ever but worst of all it makes clothes smell. We've tried hot, cold, bio, non bio, flakes, powder, liquid, running it empty, running it full, cleaning the seals with soap detergent, very mild disinfectant etc.
Would I buy another one- absolutely. So long as it was designed and made by Bosch

Small breakdown is 'final'
Reasonably happy with this machine. But it now has a broken paddle. Cost of new paddle £10
But since the paddle can only be fitted when the machine is built, spare - and £700 machine - now useless.

Drum paddle design very poor
Good machine, however drum paddle came loose and cannot be replaced without total strip down. Incredibly stupid design as paddles do occasionally come loose.
