Product information

Finished with a large white solid door and a contemporary look, the 7kg capacity Bosch WTW84161GB condenser tumble dryer makes an appealing addition to any household.

The fully electronic control dial for sensor drying includes timed and special programmes, giving you complete control over your drying.

Q & As

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product After 43 years of marriage this is our first Tumble Dryer, so we had no way of knowing what to expect, but we needn't have worried, because after trying different settings we discovered the best setting for us. We have found by turning the selector, one position to the right, that puts it on Extra Dry and it is perfect. Also it is very economical to use. No more washing hanging around the house. We can definitely recommend this product. 29 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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
