Product information

The Bosch WTA74200GB tumble dryer is a great value vented machine that will dry your family’s laundry perfectly.

It has a 7kg load capacity and a range of drying programmes to help with all of your laundry requirements, including, woollen finish, mixed load, towels, timed programme warm, timed programme cold, sports wear, delicates, super quick 40 and shirts/blouses. Plus, there is a sensor drying feature, which ensures the programme switches off when the load is dry. A fully electronic control dial allows you to select sensor programmes and timed programmes.This dryer features an anti-crease phase for up to 60 minutes, tumbling the load to eliminate excess creasing, while a large door opening creates ease of use and further reduces creasing. The WTA74200GB includes a reduced ironing option and allows you to tailor the drying length and times to suit you. A LED display shows you the remaining time of the cycle and a 24 hour time delay is on hand for the ultimate convenience. A buzzer indicates the end of the cycle.

Thanks to an AntiVibration design greater stability and quietness is guaranteed with this machine, as well as a large galvanised drum ensuring that all of your clothes are protected whilst drying.

The casing on Bosch machines is made up of five layers to ensure a robust long lasting finish, especially if the machine has to be sited in a garage or other outbuilding. Bosch guarantees that if an appliance is discontinued, its major components will be available for at least 10 years afterwards in the event of a part needing replacement.

Q & As

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great drier, why the bad reviews? Big cotton load in less than an hour! What is the problem? Selecting a program just guesses how long it will take but the sensor then adjusts that time estimate based on how dry the items actually are, not how long it has taken. Our washing machine has a 1400rpm spin which helps the drying time, but in most case the drying is done in under an hour for a cotton load at 'cupboard dry', less for a mixed load. There is an 'extra dry' option if you want them 'well done'. We've been using it for a couple of months now and very happy with the results including sheets and a small duvet. 14 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have no idea why this has bad reviews Despite reading the bad reviews from JL customers, I somehow ended up buying this machine instead of a slightly cheaper Hotpoint model. I've used it several times with full loads of cotton clothing and have had no problem with it. The time remaining indicator is misleading. A full load took well under an hour to dry and this I find to be acceptable if it means I'm using less electricity. The Cupboard Dry Extra programme seems to dry clothes well enough to put away. Clothes end up fresh and dry rather than smelling cooked. Worth noting that although this is a vented dryer, it's not recommended to be used in places that get frosty - so probably not wise to use it in an unheated outbuilding when temperatures are freezing. 23 August 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Would not recommend - no stars Bought as a replacement for a Bosch dryer that had 2 simple controls - high/low heat, and time. Dried a wash in 40-60 minutes. This new one just does not perform. Tried all settings, different types of loads, etc. Takes literally hours to dry, and yet to have one that I would say is dry. Sometimes the dryer is on for a full morning with still barely acceptable results. Cannot recommend anyone buy this product. 19 February 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Faulty Design? I have now had two of these tumble dryers. The first one did not work at all because of a fault with the filter. John Lewis replaced this for me but now the replacement machine has developed a different problem. It does not dry clothes to the level required. Cupboard dry is almost wet. Extra dry is damp. Drying towels is very difficult because, even on a timed dry, the sensors stop the machine working before the contents are dry. Separately my duvets are a nightmare to unravel as they come out the machine in a tight knot which my husband has to untangle and then I have to iron out the creases. Not good. 17 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleased - but patience needed! Overall we are pleased with this product, and I did alot of research before we bought it, so i thought i knew what i was getting. However, the exhaust only comes out of th left hand side or the back - which is a little problematic for us as ideally it would need to be on the right. The other main issue, which is written about quite alot, is the washing not being fully dry when the sensor goes off. It is good - the majority is dry, but not enough for me to put away the towels/sheets etc. so i always do a sensor programme, and once that finishes another timed setting of 20min to ensure fully dried. A little frustrating, but it does the job. 20 December 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed No reverse action means sheets and duvet covers tie up in a tight knot within seconds of starting the cycle resulting in laborious stopping, untangling and restarting many times - extremely tedious, prolongs the drying time and is highly inefficient. I thought I had upgraded by purchasing a Bosch but sadly my cheaper, older machine was far more efficient. I am so fed up I am getting rid of this machine and purchasing one with reverse action again. 11 November 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Only washing line dry, ie. still a damp. We were disappointed with this product as despite having done our research and following the instructions properly, in the end it just did not dry things properly. Maybe it was a fault with the sensor, which would help explain why so many other people like this product. 09 October 2013
