“Beautiful clean fabrics, use quality washing products.”

Written on: 26/01/2014

I have had my machine for about 6-12 months and all of the fabrics I wash come out perfect. Even woollen items are washed beautifully. You must use decent washing powders and products. And use the correct wash cycles for the fabrics washed. I use the hottest longest cycle most of the time. I have beautiful cloths and accessories. No complaints from me, and no I haven't received money to say this. I would be the first to complain, but I don't have to with this machine… Read Full Review

“The worst washine machine I have ever owned”

Written on: 27/04/2013

My main complaint about this washing machine is that it washes badly. It has damaged a lot of my clothes (has literally produced holes in them) and has given a bobbled and worn look to many softer items, even when washed on a delicates cycle. The filter is almost non-existent and very badly designed. When you open the filter to clean it there is nowhere for the water to drain into because the filter is too close to the ground level. My clothes do not come out of the machine looking clean… Read Full Review

I also found the exact same problem with this machine. Could I ask what detergent you use, wondering if we use the same and could be something to do with that? I hate looking at all my ruined clothes!

I have ahd to wash towels particularly again with no soap obviously to try and get the soap washed out of them
I also had a Zanussi for 10years and never had a problem

The Bosch is going back

“Not fit for purpse”

Written on: 06/03/2013 by Lingfield (1 review written)

The drum, motor etc. seem well engineered, but after about 2 years I have to really slam the door shut to make contact to start the washing cycle. Also the compartment for the softener does not empty, we live in a hard water area and cannot soften our wash. After contacting Bosch and being given dubious advice about doing 3 hot washes, adding Milton etc the problems remain. I got a call from Bosch customer services, other than an engineers visit for £80+ they were not interested in my… Read Full Review

“extremely loud, very dissapointed”

Written on: 03/06/2012

was very excited to get this home after wanting to change my washing machine for 5 years, didn't realise it was going to be the beginning of a series of nightmares. first wash, the noise the machine made was unbearable, i wouldn't say i live in a small house and i can clearly hear it from every single corner of my house the high pitch squeaking noise while spinning. ofcourse i understand they will make a noise when they spin dry, but this was just way too loud, and i was only using 800rpm out… Read Full Review

The dispense draw in baddly designed,gets easily mould in very deep holes, also does not let ALL rinseaid trough . Boch tradename has been bought by Chinese, not a German make any more.
The screw lid to clean the outlet difficult to open and perished in few years.

Written on: 23/08/2010

I think that most of the reviewers of this washing machine are idiots. READ THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL!!! You can turn of the beep at the end of the programme and you can turn off the button tones, or you can alter the volume of them both. There is also an estimated washing time for all the cycles and a very good guide on how to efficiently use this machine. YOU ARE ALL VERY STUPID :)… Read Full Review

Firstly I would like to say how intelligent this person is for telling me the instructions I need are in the manual. WRONG. {see we can all write in capital letters, doesn't make us appear anymore intelligent though does it} Do not write feedback on forums if you are not going to be helpful.

Why not be more helpful and explain how to turn the beep off?

We are all as you say are "stupid" until we learn how to do something.

Written on: 25/11/2009

Seems to wash well enough but this machine is sooo annoying. The beeping at the end of the cycle pierces the walls. Just when you think it has stopped, the beeping starts up again.

The features are scarce - i miss the delay function from my old indesit and the ability to do a half load… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/10/2009

Machine was great apart from annoying beeping when cycle is finished.

But the bearings have gone after just two years three months. It looks like being a very expensive repair.

I did buy the Bosch as previous hotpoint, indesit, etc., machines hadn't lasted very long so thought the Bosch was worth paying nearly twice as much for, but apparently not!

Very disappointing… Read Full Review

The washing machine stank as soon as it was used. Certain fabrics look old and bobbly after washing. There was no service and support from Bosch in fact they were very rude and unhelpful. The Classixx washing was a complete waste of money… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/04/2009 by andrewflint (1 review written)

Think that this Bosch Classixx 1200 is rubbish. Uses too little water, woolens go all bobbly. There is no indication of which point it has reached in the cycle or how long it s going to take. Water supply to the soap container seems to constantly get blocked. Colours seem to fade very quickly (although this could be down to the brand of washing liquid) Seems to break down a lot. Never buying Bosch again… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2007 by MGB (1 review written)

Bosch very unhelpful as is the retailer who sold me the machine. The shop won't do anything unless Bosch authorise them to collect the machine and give me a refund or exchange and Bosch won't do so. Dispute has been ongoing now for more than six months. What really annoys me is that if this were a smaller product like a hairdryer or a toaster, I could have returned it to the store and there would have been no problem with exchanging it or refunding the cost due to the goods being defective… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/03/2007 by pinkywinky (2 reviews written)

Firstly, be aware that Bosch and Siemens have a joint venture company to manufacture laundry products. The items have slight feature and cosmetic differences, but internally the machines are identical. My advice would be to weigh up the features which are useful to you and then choose a machine from either brand as they seem to frequently change marketing strategies making one brand appear to be "higher class" than the other from time to time and therefore more expensive. Having said that… Read Full Review

This is by far the worst washing machine I have had, BOSCH unwilling to give a replacement and customer service almost non-existant. I will not be buying BOSCH products anymore. I cannot and will not endorse them to any of my family, friends or work colleauges.T o sum up: bad experience, very, very poor washing machine, poor customer relations.

Dr X's Response to KEITHK's Review

Written on: 23/04/2007

Keith, I've sold tens of these, and not had to deal with a single irate customer complaint for this model since they've been out, even though we tell our customers to notify us of any problems before getting a company to come out under warranty. You have obviously had a bad experience, but if a manufacturers engineer does not deem the machine to be irreparable you will not get a replacement. As well as this their customer service is prompt and efficient, we delivered an Exxcel recently and when unpackaging found the kickplate to be split. one phone call later and within 48 hours a replacement was at the customers house waiting to be fitted by us. the other time we had a problem was with a Bosch fridge freezer that was missing a door tray, which again, within 48 hours was dispatched to the customer. This does not strike me as the behaviour of a company that has poor service, and i wonder if their refusal to supply a new machine has influenced your opinion of it. especially if the potential is due to it not actually being the machines fault.
<br/>
<br/>Appliance tripping electrics, i obviously do not know the contents of the engineers report for your machine, but modern boxes are ultra sensitive to tiny variations in current and voltage spikes. its quite feasible that anything on the same circuit could have caused the trip, unless it has repeatedly done this.
<br/>
<br/>Machine leaking, did you check your filter for blockages? only the higher spec Boschs have anti-flood controls, so again unless i had access to the engineers report i couldn't say for sure what caused it.
<br/>
<br/>As for rating them "3/10" for ease for use, if you cant find the controls easy to understand i would suggest trying handwashing because when you consider all the functions it has, its pretty well laid out.
<br/>
<br/>The ultimate problem with your review is lack of information. You haven't specified WHY the appliance has failed, just what its failures were. Which means people will not pay too much attention to it.
