Special offer

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 intelligent sensor-drying feature on the WTW863S1GB ensures the programme switches off when your clothes are dry, and will then go through its anti-crease phase for up to 120 minutes.

Featuring special programmes for any load, this Bosch appliance has every laundry need covered: settings include special programmes for woollens, mixed loads and sportswear. 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

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet & efficient, a happy buy! Generally very good & much quieter than my old drier which pumped out hot air. Like other reviewers, I needed to adjust the heat to the highest setting. Also need to keep it on the top setting for most loads. That said it often goes onto complete loads quicker as a result I guess, of the censor. Heavy items like a cotton quilted undersheet, bunched up a lot in a large load & along with other items, needed to go back in for quite a while as they were very wet in places at the end of a cycle. But overall, the regular washes are great. A happy buy! 06 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good product I have been using this now for a month and it is a great product. I read other reviews about the clothes coming out damp sometimes so was expecting to have to make the adjustment to the drying sensor but honestly when it says cupboard dry, I would say that is correct and if you do not expect to wear the things that come out straight away they are fine to put away in a draw, yes not as toasty hot as out of the old non condensing dryer but that's not what this is. Overall, very pleased. 15 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by German engineering at it's best. Searched for tumble dryers for a couple of weeks, reading reviews and making comparisons. Finally settling on this machine I was a little apprehensive as dryness of the washing seemed to be a problem. I need not have been worried, just read the instructions, adjust machine to your needs and away you go. Brilliant, would recommend this dryer to anybody that wants a cheap to run, quiet and easy to use machine. 12 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolute Luxury This machine looks really good, works well and everything leaves it reasonably dry. 'Cottons cupboard dry plus' is the programme for me as I only dry towels and bedding. My duvet cover didn't go into a ball and was almost dry, just needed to spend a little time in the airing cupboard. The machine always adjusts the drying time. The delivery was very smooth and arrived with the advised time slot. 09 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy I was looking for a first tumble dryer and was looking for a good energy rating and reputable make and that's what I got. A bit expensive but it does the job well and could recommend to anyone. Settings have to be adjusted a little bit so I reccomend you read the instructions first and learn how to use it. All good, very happy with the product! 07 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Good tumble dryer After much research , plumped for this tumble dryer - well built, very economic. Not disappointed at all -agree with other reviewers comments though that you may need to change the heat setting if you think the washing is not dry enough. Instructions easy to follow though. Service from John Lewis excellent - everything from call handling to delivery 07 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dryer Great product, feels robust and well made Do have to put it on extra dry for items to dry fully Quiet when in use Useful buzzer to let you know it's finished, continues to rotate items until it's turned off to stop creasing Condenser draw easy to remove and empty Went for the heat pump for economical purposes- only downside was the weight of the product, didn't think how heavy it would be to take up 2 flights of stairs 22 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Dryer I was dubious about this dryer as the reviews were mixed but i can honestly say that this machine works brilliantly. I could not be happier with this purchase. I have followed the advice and changed the settings to the highest and it works an absolute treat. I would absolutely recommend this product. 14 December 2015
