“Bosch in my experience is the worst brand eve”

Written on: 26/09/2014 by Heidy274 (1 review written)

Owned a Bosch classixx 6 Express washer for less than 4 years alongside its partner tumble dryer . Have had intermittent problems with poor spinning performance on the machine and horrible build up of dirt in the huge rubber seals behind the door which despite constant cleaning wouldn't come off and dirtys clean laundry on removal . Yesterday the washing machine packed in completely (just outside 3 year warranty )and I understand the control board has gone completely making it uneconomic to… Read Full Review

“Excellent work horse over 10 years old ”

Written on: 23/06/2014

This machine has work night and day. From kids to work wear loads and more. Never a problem in all those years in the first 4 years its been over 12 loads a week. In the past 5 years with more kids and grown ups I can see it doing 3-5 loads in a day. There isn't a day goes by that it doesn't do less than 2 loads unless we are on holiday of course. But now I have to replace the brushes. Not bad. Not expensive either. So if I had to replace the machine it would still be bosch again and again… Read Full Review

“Highly reliable”

Written on: 09/01/2014 by Batesrich (22 reviews written)

We have had ours for over 10 years now and it continues to perform although now getting a little noisy. Despite regular use (3 - 4 times per week), not once has it needed any maintenance. Guess we will have to buy fresh before much longer and hopefully we will be able to buy another of these machines with similar reliability… Read Full Review

“In the Minority - but Love it”

Written on: 19/08/2013 by Berger15 (1 review written)

We were given this machine about 7 years ago by relatives who moved overseas. They had only had the machine 2 years. So in all about 9 years of use before todays first little issue - the drum won't spin. I had a similar problem with our Tumble Dryer (also Bosch and the same age) -and to repair that I replaced the brushes (about 40 mins work), at a cost of £12, and all was working. Checked the brushes on the washing machine and this seems to be the issue again. Brushes are very cheap (don't… Read Full Review

“BOSCH CLASSIC 1200 EXPRESS DISAPPOINTING”

Written on: 26/04/2013

Had Bosch previously and replaced with this model around 3 years ago. Had problems with the spin programme (clothes still heavy with water)towards end of first year but was only now and again and seemed to clear when put on to manual spin. Machine gave up the ghost yesterday out of the blue- would not switch on at all although all of the spin speed indicator lights were showing red. Checked on internet and seems a number of people having similar problems. Chap who repairs washing machine had a… Read Full Review

“In a minority but I love mine”

Written on: 18/11/2012 by V8Rover (1 review written)

Inherited this machine 4 years ago when my great aunt died. She had acquired it two or three years previously. I have to say I cannot fault it. Nothing has ever gone wrong with it - and it leads a pretty hard life. It is fairly quiet and washes and rinses very well. The one bugbear I have with it is that nothing I can do will prevent it beeping loudly at the end of the cycle. There was an instruction leaflet explainimg a combination of button brushes (the buttons are non-moving touch sensitive)… Read Full Review

“Bosch classixx 1200”

Written on: 09/11/2012 by Nickjt (1 review written)

I've had my machine for four years. It has been repaired numerous times. The final repair under warranty required a new control panel & I was told by the repair man that it was almost beyond economic repair. I have just had it repaired out of warranty, the bushes needed replacing, more expense. Having read reviews on this site I think I should have scrapped it because it sometimes takes an age to complete a cycle so I now suspect a timer problem & it sounds like the bearings have gone too… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/12/2010

We got this machine along with our new build house almost exactly 3 yrs ago, installed by the builders. Im not a washing machine enthusiast (who is really? Apart from repairmen...) and all I want to know about a machinre is does it work ok and will it last a long time, by which I mean at least 5 yrs. This unit is fairly easy to use, is unobtrusive and functional and has given us no problems until yesterday when it stopped spinning - have now tried everything to get it to spin or to isolate the… Read Full Review

Hi Had this washer for four years and not gone wrong yet. I have had bosch before and always done well. We do around 7 loads a week and the wife does over load it as well.
It's not odd for some to go wrong as with all things, you must have had a bad one. I can say there are worse makes out there.
Just dont buy a cheapo you can be sure it will go wrong… Read Full Review

Had our Bosch for 2 1/2 years and it has just stopped. Seems to be the same problem other are having. Very dissappointed in what we though was a reliable brand. Will NOT be buying Bosch again.

“My previous 3 washing machines lasted a combined total...”

Written on: 04/10/2009

My previous 3 washing machines lasted a combined total of 27 years, none were Bosch. My Bosch Classixx 1200 Express lasted all of 22 months. While it worked it was very good but not for long enough. The part alone would cost £190 and Bosch quoted at least 6 weeks to deliver the part! So I will scrap the thing and never again consider any Bosch appliance after this… Read Full Review
