  • 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 Don't get this dryer!!My God, how difficult can it be? Got this dryer thinking that pretty much top of the range would be a solid performer which would last for years .... How wrong could I be....? Despite there being dozens of settings (far too complicated) there doesn't actually seem to be one which dries clothes properly. I end up running the programme multiple times and each washing load now takes hours to dry to any useful level. I will be selling this useless piece of garbage on eBay and buying (probably) a cheaper model which just drys and without the irrelevant complexity. Utter rubbish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced Bosch with BoschI bought this appliance to replace an old Bosch tumble drier which had served its time very effectively over the years without any bother. The replacement model has some improved features like the self cleaning condensor and improved economy. It is quite quiet when in operation and dries the clothes well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great featuresThis is my first dryer & complements my Bosch washing machine which has been faultless over the last 7 1/2 years. It is reasonably quiet, energy efficient & has lots of modes. Yes it might not be as fast as the old style dryers but I care more about being economical.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet and CleanThis dryer is excellent at keeping quiet, but it does take a while to find the right setting to leave clothes completely dry and not a little damp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to useI bought this appliance to replace an existing one and am not disappointed. I was slightly by some of the reviews stating it took a long time to dry but haven't found this an issue. Quite the contrary, it's much quieter and quicker than my previous Bosch dryer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst dryer in the worldThis dryer never drys anything. It takes over 4 hours to dry a set of bedding. It's rediculous. Everything is always still damp when it comes out. The engineer said it works best when you put items which are the same fabric in But that's not realistic when you've got a week of washing to get through.
