Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

I'm in love with this machine!

SKeen 5/30/2022

I love this machine, so quiet, so many choices, perfect size for my home/space .... it does what it's supposed to do! I appreciate the reminders like when to do a drum clean, and the Wi-fi connection is great if I don't hear the "finished" chime --- it let's me know on my phone and watch. Very satisfied with this washer.

Defective, won't replace

Craig 5/13/2022

We got this washer in December, and it hasn't drained properly since day one. It leaves soap and water in the cloths at the end of the cycle. It took 2 months for Bosch to send a repair person. They did not have the parts they needed to fix it. They sent the parts to us a few weeks later, where they sat in our apartement for another 4 months (one of the boxes was bigger than the washer itself). They cancelled numerous appointments in that time frame. Yesterday, 6 months later, they finally sent someone else. They spent 3 hours doing repairs and then left without trying a laundry cycle. Of course, the same problem is happening. I called again this morning and they scheduled another service call for 6 weeks out. I don't know if we just got a deffective machine and they are refusing to replace it or if they are all terrible. Either way I would never suggest buying this machine. Bosch's customer service was aweful. Each time I called, we had to start from scratch, sending them all of the purchase information, explain the problem, and try to convince them that this was not the first time calling. We sent photos and videos, but they were not willing to accept that there was a problem without sending a technician. The technicians were unwilling to wait for a laundry cycle to complete to see the problem.

Still the Best

brooklyncurmudgeon 5/12/2022

Although our previous Bosch compact washer lasted 11 years, we (foolishly) decided to replace it with a cheaper LG washer. After several issues, we sent it back a month later and went back to Bosch. It's still the best compact washer on the market. (Btw - the Bosch dryer next to it is 11 years old, and still going strong)

Series 5 Washing Machine May, 2022

Sunnybrook from Honolulu 5/12/2022

Keep in mind this washing machine has been in use for about one month, so, my opinion a few years from now might be different, I don't bother with the wi-fi function since I am retired and am not pressed for time, There are a lot of options to wash your clothes, which can initially be confusing. I like that it is quiet, even during the high spin cycle. I had an older Bosch washing machine that bit the dust after 9 years. Time will tell how this one holds out. So far, so good.

In Love

donna 2/20/2022

Absolutely love our new washer. Quiet, smooth and very little vibration. Much better than our older one that broke. I especially love that it tells me via the app that the wash is done! Such a small footprint compared to regular washers and dryers. We have a tiny utility room and the stacked combo fits just fine!

More Honest Feedback

A Loyal Bosch Customer 2/19/2022

I appreciate this opportunity to share my "honest thoughts" about our newly purchased Bosch washer and dryer. Though each unit is quite lovely in appearance-both models are far too electronically sophisticated with superfluous features we will never use. There's something to be said for the elegance, simplicity and reliability of the older Bosch washer and dryer we owned with their manual buttons and simple choices. Temperature: cold, warm, hot. Spin Speed: low, medium, high. Dryer: damp, dry, very dry. I understand the motivation to remain a step ahead of the competition, but some of these new electronic features are downright silly. Why not save money and manufacture a reliable appliance with fewer bells and whistles? Most of these new features are not important to consumers. I apologize for sending you such negative feedback, but feel strongly about these issues and thank you for providing this forum to share our thoughts.

Over Rated

Traveler 2/14/2022

This is my second Bosch appliance. Unfortunately it was all we could get in a timely manner because it was a scratch & dent washer. I can't say I'm impressed. Setting the spin cycle on high still creates wetter clothes than it should. That makes the dryer work longer to dry them. No more Bosch!

Leaks water all over my floor

Musee 1/20/2022

There's water leaking out of the bottom of the washer. The supply hoses aren't leaking. The drain hose isn't leaking. And yet there's water on the floor under the washer. It's less than a month old. Customer service works really hard to makecsure you can't contact them.

Bosch 500 Compact Washer

Jeff 1/11/2022

I have had this washer with the companion dryer for 5 months and am very satisfied with its performance. Prior to purchasing the Bosch Series 500, I had purchased a similar Whirlpool compact washer and dryer. Within 3 months the washer showed a fault code which was unable to be corrected for over 2 months. I did a bit more research and found this to be common with Whirlpool and that the Bosch units were much better. That has proven to be true for me.

Perfect size for one

Washer review 9/21/2021

While I'm very happy with the size of the washer, something to consider if you have a king size bed is the sheets will need to be separated into two loads (unless you have very thin sheets). There are soap suds on the door bushing which needs to be wiped down before removing cloths else could be picked up by the clean clothes.

worth the long wait

spang8 9/9/2021

Due to the pandemic and the inefficiency of the first big box I ordered the machine from, I waited 7 months. But I didn't want any other brand. This machine cleans well, the options are clearly displayed, quiet, and I hope long-lasting like my previous machine. I only wish it spun clothes dry more than it does.

Bosch 500 Series Washer

Tom R 8/27/2021

We like to compact size of the washer. That said, we do wish there was a way for the drum to be slightly larger. The washer does do a great job of getting clothes clean. It does benefit from a stable floor surface. We have a drain pan in the washer location - no longer required - that does not provide a great surface for the compact machine. We will be removing the drain pan to address this. We do like the various wash options. While somewaht unnecessary they do help us decide which cycle we choose for each type of wash.

Washer/dryer awful

Beth 2/18/2021

If I could give no stars I would, I have had 2 sets of these for two different homes. Both had dryer issues with the pump. One was kind of fixed and the other not at all. Bosch does not stand behind their products. I wil never ever buy another Bosch product!!
