That is soooo cool to know!! (and good for a future pro arguement!)BuddyandBailey said:YES I bought the whirlpool duet (both the washer and dryer) which many people on this forum own and love them. I noticed a decrease in my water bill right away-- gas and hydro I'm on equal billing so I won't really notice until year end but they are both running on a credit already ). I love them so easy to use. I highly recommend them.
How funny.... this is the one I am currently thinking I want. Before I came back and read your replies.... I found all kinds of great personal ratings on the Bosch. I also found a LAUNDRY forum... of all things. They say great things about the Bosch too.blacklab said:I got one recently - a Bosch. It was rated as one of the best (underneat the Miele or the Asko and who can afford them??)
I love it because:
*it heats its own water
*it uses much less water even for a full load
*it has water level sensor so uses appropriate amounts of water for a small load
*I got a rebate from the local council for buying it
*it has a 15 minute cycle for when I need a uniform in a big hurry
*my dogs can watch it go around
*it has delay timer so I can set it to start washing before I get up in the morning or just before I get home from work (up to 24 hours)
*it has a digital readout of how much longer the cycle has before it finishes.
*it's really quiet!!!
Hows that? Nine reasons I love my Bosch front loader
Dammit I just thought of another one!
*it gets the clothes REALLY clean.
MLM they are like top loaders. The bigger the kg size the more you can fit in!
just some of my opnions and observations as a current BSH employee. We have been making these washers since 2004 and we have made several rounds of improvement... all of which have seriously reduced our service rate. The heater in the washer and higher water temps provide washing results that can be proven in a lab and in normal use and is not simply an attempt to reap more profit. There are plenty of posts on these boards testifying to the amazing wash results tht higher temps bring in any brand. In addition, to the best of my knowledge all Kenmores that compete with Bosch washers (in price, capacity, etc.) are made by Whirlpool, except for the 3.1 cu. ft. $599 piece with no heater which is now on clearance.
Me too!! We just bought a Maytag something or other-top load but without the thing in the middle (is that called the agitator-can you tell I'm not mechanically inclined). It gets delivered Friday.Melissa said:I don't know that we'll fork over the money for a front loader, but I have this irrational fear of the seal leaking and it flooding my laundry room.
