Product Overview

With a 7kg drum, this heat pump tumble dryer from Bosch is great for medium-sized households. Heat pump technology is the most efficient way of drying clothes. Hot air is constantly recycled within the drum so the dryer doesn’t lose heat or waste energy. This gives your clothes more protection from heat and helps to saves energy. There are 12 programmes to choose from, including an anti-crease cycle which gentle tumbles your laundry to prevent clothes from forming deep creases, so you’ll spend less time ironing. And, the selfCleaning condenser stays lint-free, making this model low maintenance.

    A Good buy, with some shortfalls

    "Firstly, this unit DOES dry clothes. I read all the reviews where it was declared that it fails to dry anything and it's not true. However, I didn't even run the machine without changing the default "dryness" setting from the minimum it is set to on delivery, to one short of the maximum as recommended by some other users. I have noted that my wife thought the washing was damp when it had finished, but this is in reality more a relative situation as our old dryer was left on for a given period until the clothes were DRY. That meant they came out baked to a crisp, literally. This machine stops just short of the "dry" point, leaving a bit of moisture in the fabric which is better for the fabric and ironing! It means for towels the edging cord sometimes feels very slightly damp, whilst the towel is dry, but fractionally cool to touch. (Cupboard Dry Cottons setting, default dryness could be increased by one more setting.) The machine runs reasonably quietly, some strange noises as it cleans itself but generally fantastic in our utility room. The feet adjust, so an uneven floor is not a problem. The drawer holds the condensed water and is easy to access, it's also cleverly shaped to allow a bit of angle on it when you put it in for the first few inches, it's quite long. The door, is a shame. The glazed door shape is not symmetrical, so you can't reverse the door. That would have been nice. The door is also double glazed and the outer window protrudes slightly from the front, it has a slight bulge. This isn't a problem but I can foresee it picking up scratches, as it's the first thing to get hit. The program selection is very simple, the beeper quite good and volume adjustable. There is no "pause"... I do struggle with the programmes, you don't just set it going as it needs to sense the dryness. Maybe it's a male thing. I have a choice of various settings, which makes me think towels should have their own category, but I have cottons, easy care, sports, wool, delicates, mixed, quick and timed. I am left pondering... cottons, yeah? A dummies guide lookup on the front of the machine especially for the male of the species would be nice for the likes of me. What about synthetics, the old "cool" setting? Delicates? easy care? The old cool and warm as shown on the garment could be more easily translated on the dial. It looks well make, very happy. When you start the machine it does indicate 3hrs to complete. this is before the machine has taken a reading with it's sensor to see how wet the clothes are. As soon as it gets some heat going and takes a reading of the moisture content in the warm air the number drops often by over 50-60%."

    You will struggle to find better

    "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."

    Top Quality Economical Dryer

    "I bought this dryer to replace a Hover condenser that packed up after 5 years. I was very concerned if it was worth the extra money but I neednt have worried. It dryes clothes excellently, I did have to alter a setting to get my level of dryness but its easy to do and in the instructions. I have an energy meter in the house and can confirm it is VERY economical to run, my wife also says it is faster to dry clothes than our old dryer. Another plus point is the self cleaning condenser, I was always having to remove and clean the condenser on our last machine but this job is no more! Be warned that the machine does make funny noises when this cleaning is happening. The water container is at waist level and easy to remove and empty. Overall a very good machine soild, well built and does an excellent job. I have read other reviews but it not drying enough but it seems that some people cant read the instructions properly, the settings are easy to change to your prefference."

    Had to replace my Bosch dryer after 15 years

    "After reading the reviews and opinions of users and the media, I decided to purchase this heat pump dryer. It is quiet easy to use, but you need to adjust the fine heat setting to gain excellent drying results. It does take about 3 hours to dry a large load but it only uses about a third of the energy of my previous dryer."

    A Tumble dampener

    "I had an old cheap vented tumble dryer which broke, so thought I'd replace it with an A++ rated Which best buy by Bosch. Can't go wrong....? UNfortunately it takes much longer to dry than the vented, and after a couple of weeks of trying, I still haven't managed to get anything actually "dry". I've read the manual. I've played with heat settings. I've left it on for hours. And like other people say, it has this weird display that says 3 hours drying time, then pauses and goes to zero, and after a few minutes starts up again. I don't know, maybe I'll work it out and be happy with it, but for now, I wish I'd not gone for an A++ and just continued to belch out heat with a cheap old vented tumble dryer - 35 minutes - done."
