Q & As

Bosch WTW84161GB Sensor Condenser Tumble Dryer, 7kg Load, A++ Energy Rating, White 3 5 11 11
Sadly dissapointed After owning this machine for three weeks, I can only say it is the most dissapointing product I have ever purchased, in spite of advice from Bosch customer service this machine, has failed to deliver dry washing consistently, sorting fiddling and generally pratting about do not guarantee a good result! The machine churns away endlessly for a couple of hours and I wonder what the dickens it has been doing, I am assured it uses less electricity than my former model, however old machine "dry washing" in fifty minutes,. No contest, this is not progress! 23 December 2014
Works well The product information on JL site said stainless steel Drum but this model has an enameled drum. A bit disappointing. It works well, and as in previous reviews can make some noise when working. 24 November 2014
Excellent Product Found this tumble dryer to be a big improvement on our previous one. Not only is it much quieter, but the condensing part is fantastic. It just collects the water it extracts in a small cabinet (which has to be emptied after each dry) and it also operates at room temperature - no fans or doors open required. Very happy with it. 18 November 2014
Drying Like A Dream I had read many reviews before deciding on purchasing the Bosch and I have not been disappointed. I have had it around a month or so now but have found it to be like a dream! It has a great variety of settings depending on your needs and the iron dry feature is just fantastic. I had read a few reviews that mentioned the clothing coming out slightly damp but not so, the extra dry feature if great if you want your clothes to be really warm and comfy - thanks Bosch and John Lewis for uniting me with such a great product. 30 September 2014
Dreadful We have a Bosch washing machine that works perfectly, so we went for a Bosch tumble dryer. The first load we tried was 4 hand towels and even after being in the dryer 3 times we had to hang them on the line to be properly dried! The next load we tried was one pair of denims and these were not dry either!! I am waiting for this dryer to be collected by JL for return and I have since bought a Hotpoint vented dryer from Curry's. I did try to buy a Miele vented dryer from JL, but an acceptable 3 day delivery turned into an unacceptable 10 day delivery! You have let yourself down big-time JL!!! 04 September 2014
really pleased with this I had had a tumble dryer before however as we were moving I decided on replacing it with this Bosch and I am very glad that I did. It is a little noisy however it is in the kitchen and I only have it on when we are in another room so it doesn't bother us at all. The only thing that is missing really is the timer! Which means that I just have to check if the clothes are dry after a certain amount of time. I have only used it for a couple of weeks so only time will tell if I remain happy about it's drying capabilities. 12 August 2014
Mmmm? Doesn't dry as well as my old one ...... and I don't get pressing the low heat button , turning the control button several clicks and count beeps to adjust the temp! Bought in haste! 03 June 2014
Very disappointing appliance When my old Bosch vented dryer finally gave up after almost 20 years of excellent service, I went to John Lewis to buy something similar. Unfortunately there does not seem to be a machine in existence which is very energy efficient, vented and reverse tumbles! Having looked at all the machines on display & listened to the sales assistant's explanations on the different types of drying processes, my husband & I decided to buy this machine. What a mistake! Although it extracts a great deal of water from the clothes (and is quite a pain to have to empty the extremely long condenser drawer after each load) they are still damp regardless of the fact that they are all sorted into the correct washing groups and the correct drying programme chosen. Large items such as duvet covers are always rolled into a ball even after the anti-creasing programme. The clunking noises it makes during the drying process are also very loud and extremely annoying. Regardless of the fact that the machine has a self-cleaning condenser surely Bosch could have created a draining kit for this model. My faith in Bosch machines has been sorely dented. 26 May 2014
