  • SelfCleaning Condenser
    SelfCleaning Condenser The maintenance-free, SelfCleaning Condenser is easy to use and spares you tedious cleaning. Thanks to this innovation, the condenser is cleaned automatically, up to four times during the drying process. Bosch’s heatpump dryers dry particularly economically for the life of the appliance, with the dryer operating at full capacity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Biggest waste of money ever madeTumble dryer bought in Dec still trail and error when in use. Can anyone advise on which program to use when you just need to finish drying cloth from cloths line. I feel that this is the biggest waste of money I have ever made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HOPELESS EVEN WITH CHANGED SETTINGSDoesn't dry properly even with settings changed to driest setting. Clothes are damp and creased. Absolutely hopeless and will be looking to return it. .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One way timble☹️I am trying to love this machine, but it is very difficult. I had a Hoover prior to this, condenser as well. Had it 8 years, fantastic. Never ironed ever, because we got on so well. Well, it eventually gave in - old age. Now, my new Bosch self Cleansing dryer never gets warmer, hot never has. But, only tumbles one way, scrunched clothes always. Back doing the ironing. All the buttons on the machine, well you cannot select specific ones you want it to do. Never recommend this. So sorry I got this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from best tumble dryer everThis is the best tumble dryer we have ever owned - once we had set it up correctly. it really is great and worth the money. BUT, the instructions are very poor, and I had to fiddle and read them 10 times before I finally worked out how to get my cloths completely dry. If you want to know how I did it, I couldn't tell you as it was complicated, but I could read what few instruction there are an do it again. I highly recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing - waste of moneyBought a year ago from John Lewis and its totally useless. We're forever having to hang semi damp clothes so they can dry properly. After use cloth's feel and smell. I've had two Bosch engineers round and both did there upmost to dodge any questions. Only advice given by Bosch -"it works best in warm dry condition's, preferably during the summer months." I would certainly not recommend this model!
