After realizing how much I love my Bosch Dishwasher, I talked my husband into taking the financial plunge with the Bosch Front Loading Washer when our old washer died. I must say that it cleans wonderfully, in fact much better than any other washer I have ever owned.
Being that it is a front loader I had to learn all over again how to wash clothes. I cannot use the regular detergents, but must use the brands especially designed as high efficiency ones. And using too much detergent results in a load of clothes taking hours to complete it's cycle as this machine has a suds sensor and keeps going until it senses that all of the detergent has rinsed out. It senses the correct water temperature and will heat to that temperature when required. It even senses the correct time to dispense the detergent, bleach and fabric softner. Makes me feel rather feeble, actually.
The one thing that bothers me is that it doesn't seem to 'sense' the correct spin time as usually there is more water left in my clean clothes than I like. It takes a bit more time to dry, but I must say that they are cleaner than they have ever been using any other washer I have ever owned.
