Product information

Finished with a glass door and a contemporary white steel look, the 7kg capacity Bosch WTW863S1GB condenser tumble dryer makes an appealing addition to any household.

The electronic dial, LED indicators and LCD display on this unit clearly show the programme sequence and time remaining, giving you complete control over your drying. Touch control buttons make customising the settings simple.

The Super Quick programme dries your clothes in just 40 minutes, which comes in very handy when you need those jeans dried before you leave the house!

An interior light in the drum allows you to see your clothes and a buzzer lets you know when drying is complete.

Q & As

Bosch WTW863S1GB Sensor Condenser Tumble Dryer, 7kg Load, A++ Energy Rating, White 3.8 5 9 9
Excellent, but you need to read the instructions I have to confess to being very nervous about buying this particular model because of the mixed reviews. I was keen on getting a 'self cleaning condenser' model as I'd found with my previous dryer that it was very awkward to clean the condenser by hand and as a result would often get blocked. I'm delighted to say it was was a very good decision. This dryer is just excellent. Clothes come out dry, it handles a full load very well and has some nice touches to it such as drum illumination, time to finish indicator, anti-crease mode at the end of the drying etc. The build quality is good, it all seems a fair bit 'chunkier' than the dryer it replaced. To pick up on some of the negatives other reviews have mentioned. Drying results are dependent on a three way setting that is easy to change. For some reason this is not set to the driest when shipped, a quick read of the instruction card will sort this. Yes it does make some odds noises, although these are alluded to in the instructions I did think that there may have been a fault at first but it is simply the dryer 'doing its thing' keeping the condenser clean and pumping water to the tank that you empty. It does take longer than you might expect, it can be alarming to put a load in and then when you set it off it says it needs more than three hours ( I tend to use the low heat option) but this seems only to be an initial 'estimate' and loads often finish quicker than this first indicated time. I guess it is quietly looking at the dampness of the clothes and reevaluating the finish time. Do remember though that this dryer uses a fair bit less electricity so you are trading time for energy. Like all condenser dryers you have to empty the water tank and clean the fluff filter but this is made easy by the good design, much easier than my old one. I can't vouch for how clean the condenser is being kept as it is inaccessible behind a panel. Overall, an excellent dryer, more than pleased. 30 September 2014
Great Dryer Another great product from Bosch. Thats all i need to say. 09 May 2014
Bewildering array of noises! Bought this tumble drier for my parents before Christmas because of the heat pump technology. I have a Panasonic heat pump tumble drier, which is brilliant - 38 minutes to dry anything. They have always bought Bosch and as it was a lot cheaper I thought that I would stay safe with this model. I thought that all tumble driers the same - how wrong I was! Same problem as other reviews here in that it doesn't dry the clothes properly forcing them to leave it on for long programmes. The worse thing about it is the noise it makes when it is pumping the water up into the removable tank - noisy, mechanical and bewildering to those in earshot. There is a large section about the noises in the user guide, otherwise you would think it was broken and send it back. I should have known that cheaper meant cheap. Don't buy this model as you will be disappointed. Next time I will pay more and treat them to a Panasonic, which is fantastic. 28 February 2014
dries cold and takes forever I actually sent the first one back as I thought there was something wrong with it. Second unit still dries cold and slightly damp even on the 3hr setting. I know it has some kind of heat pump but its nice to have something warm from the drier. Very disappointing. 08 February 2014
Love it! Such a welcome addition to my utility space. Would reccommend for any home, no more hanging stuff on the radiator or fluff build up during the winter months. Lovely product and so far so good, can't complain! 04 February 2014
Takes forever to dry Delivery, collection of old one and setting up worked fine, but this tumble dryer takes forever to have clothes properly dried. I have adjusted the level of dryness for the hardness of the water as specified in the manual, emptied container and cleaned the fluff filter as required but unless I dry them for 2-3h the clothes are not properly dried. My old tumble dryer, also a Bosch, used to take 58mn on Easy care programme. So far for the low energy consumption level, if I have to put them twice on the cycle. Unpleasant surprise for a Bosch product. 26 January 2014
Overall really pleased! This is the first time I've owned a dryer and I am well pleased. The energy rating was very important to me when researching which one to buy, and after 'a lot' of research, this one stood out. It also has a heat pump although not clearly advertised (not sure why as this is a positive surely). The price was attractive compared to similar products and nearly all my kitchen appliances are Bosch, as they are an excellent company. My towels come out fluffy and warm ( even though this is on the longest setting), and clothes come out dry ready for folding. The anti-crease is also useful (as I discovered after taking a load out straight after it had dried and before it went onto anti-crease). Clothes did come out a little damp on the 'iron dry' but I am happy using the longer setting. Overall really happy as I don't need to put clothes on the radiators any more or have the airers out for days, waiting for the clothes to dry! Got my £75 cashback from Bosch without too much fuss and who better to buy from than John Lewis! 25 January 2014
Great Dryer Very impressed - I had the previous model to this one and this dryer is even quicker with less noise. Very good product from Bosch as always 19 January 2014
