Bosch Exxcel WTW863S1GB Freestanding Condenser Tumble Dryer - White

World renowned reliability. The WTW863S1GB gives you the benefits of Bosch’s German build quality. Its 7kg drum means that it is large enough to handle 21 adult T-shirts at once, plenty of space for a busy household. Sensor drying allows the machine to sense the moisture in a load and automatically adapt the programme to fit. All of your clothes are given the treatment they deserve, and as you’re only using the water and electricity you need it will save you money. The A++energy efficiency rating is head and shoulders over most dryers on the market, excellent if you want to save a few pennies and do your bit for the environment too!

"Great Dryer, but read the manual"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: the buzzer! (but you can swich it off)

"Really can't fault this Bosch Tumble Dryer, it does the job quietly and efficiently.

Must admit I was a little bit disappointed when we first used it as even on the driest setting the clothes were coming out damp. Then I read the manual and adjusted the dryness level settings and it works perfectly.

Controls are easy to use, love the fact it self-cleans the condenser and, best of all, the water reservoir is not at the bottom of the machine (like our previous dryer), it's where the detergent drawer would be if this was a washing machine.

The end of cycle warning buzzer has to be the most irritating thing I have ever heard. I think the nice people at Bosch know this as they have made it really easy to turn down the volume or switch it off completely. Mine is off.

Although it's a relatively expensive dryer the build quality and finish make it feel like it was worth the money. Would recommend."

"Annoying"

Pros: Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: Complicated, doesn't dry properly within the programme options, duration indicator changes constantly, operation manual not very informative.

"Read the (very minimal) instructions front to back. Adjusted the fine tune drying as advised. Still can't get the clothes dry in one single programme???????? Can't work out how to set a specific drying time either (sometimes I don't want to use a specialised programme I just want to set it going for an hour) either it can't do it.... or the instructions leave it to you to work out?? It does have a 40min quick dry option, but it's not enough to dry a decent sized load. I'm hoping i'll eventually work it out.

I consider myself to have a reasonable degree of practical skills & common sense.... in my opinion working a dryer should not be this complicated! It may have lots of clever features but it's job is to dry clothes, which it nearly does!

I spin everything at 1400rpm so the dryer hasn't got a massive amount to do, annoying when you get home from work and they are still damp.... so you have to set it off again. I currently wouldn't recommend this dryer.

The duration time changes constantly (e.g. says 33 mins to go, then 20 mins later says 34 mins to go) makes the whole purpose of knowing when it will finish pointless.

It is very quiet which is good, also the water collection is in a very convenient place, Just wish it dried the clothes before it finished.

Hope customer services can help! If it's something simple i'll update this review in the hope it will help others figure it out quicker than I have.

Seems others have had similar issues..."

"No dry clothes yet.."

Pros: Good build quality, looks good

Cons: Complicated, Expensive

"Very disappointed so far. Just can't get my clothes completely dry. I have fined tuned the drying setting but it still comes out damp. Will attempt to read the instructions again but surely it can't be that complicated.

The machine looks a quality well built item.

The condenser drawer at the top is a good idea."

"Cheap To Run!"

Pros: Good build quality, looks good

Cons: Expensive

"Average noise levels, end of cycle buzzer, internal light (goes off by itself), easy to clean, looks good. Slightly bemused by the 'cupboard dry' vs 'very dry' but that's because to me dry is dry is dry. *shrug*

But the best thing is the low energy consumption. We stuffed a meter on it to check and the heat pump in this machine means the energy use is about as low as you can get - for that reason, I love it!"

"You will struggle to find better"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, very efficient

Cons: none

"Why do people buy poor quality and inefficient Tumble dryers ?

The simple reasons are, they can't be bother to do the research to find the most cost effective efficient machine to suit there needs, they buy the machine the sales mans wants to sell and he will only sell you what they have, or simply don't have the time or the funds needed. But never mind I have done all the hard work for you. This is the most cost effective efficient machine available, you won't fine a better one, simples. Yes you can buy a slightly more energy efficient dryer but the extra cost makes it less cost effective. But you must read the instructions ! The drying sensor can be easily reset to suit you."

"Great Product"

Pros: Easy to use, looks good

Cons: Expensive

"All of my white goods are Bosch, so when it came to buying a dryer, I naturally looked for Bosch. Having never had a dryer before now, I cant compare to anything else, but believe this dryer to be a great product.

The first load we did came out a little damp, but after adjusting the dryness setting (look in the manual), all subsequent loads have been spot on. there have been quite a few complaints about damp clothes, but I guess they haven't adjusted the dryness setting before commenting.

lots of people have complained about drying time, but this is a little unfair really too. The dryer has been designed to be very energy efficient, which naturally means lower temperatures and therefore longer drying time. We don't find the drying time to be problematic.

If you must have clothes dried quickly a less efficient dryer is probably a better buy, but it will be at the expense of higher energy bills.

Yes it is expensive, but under typical use will payback itself over a less efficient dryer way before the guarantee ends"
