Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Lots of options, but ...

beelady 11/21/2019

I purchased this dryer because it does not require an external vent. I guess my expectation was that clothes would still get nice and dry without that venting. My experience so far is that clothes on the featured settings generally come out a bit damp for my taste, and so I am always trying to tweak this by using a setting other than what I am actually drying, or repeat the drying process. Eventually I plan to stack the 500 Series Washer and Dryer, but if that is not someone's intent, you definitely need the base platform because these units sit very low to the ground for accessing the door.

Condensation Dryer

Bea C 10/23/2019

This is my first condensation dryer. It took a few weeks of use to get use to it. The clothes don't come out as crisp and dry as they do in a vented dryer, but they are dry. The more I use it, the more I like it.

great dryer, uninformed seller

midwest customer 9/28/2019

We bought the Bosch washer and dryer combo (to be stacked in laundry closet). We appreciate Bosch products but had a rough start due to wrong information and installation issues. Sellers in our area do not know much about Bosch. The dryer: (1) This condensate dryer has a drain line--not a pull-out drawer where the water is collected and that you can empty. The drain line needs to go into the washer's drain pipe--or you will need a sink close by, or a bucket... I would have preferred a condensate drawer. (2) Getting used to the dryer's options and cycles takes some time. Dryer seems to shut off a lot--sensor senses the load to be dry when it is not (yet). Restart, using a different option, will continue the drying process. Overall, I would recommend the appliance. Condensate dryers eliminate the need for a dryer line through a wall or crawlspace. Clothes are being dried gently.

Condensation Dryer

babs 9/18/2019

I really love the results of this dryer. Was extremely skeptical about it because I didn't understand how it was supposed to dry. After a service call to replace a part and modify the hoses it works like a dream. Still getting used to the length of time it takes but that is due to being ventless. Great appliance.

My 500 has improved my laundry and my life

BenLA 9/13/2019

My favorite drying cycles on my 500 series are Perm P Damp (0:39), Perm P Dry (0:50), and Perm Press Extra Dry (0:55). The moisture sensor works so well that each cycle ends up finishing significantly sooner and closet-ready -- every load. I've been a Bosch owner since 2011, the days of the US-model Axxis compact vented electric dryer. After 8 happy years with that model, l learned about the benefits and practicality of condensation dryer technology. That made my 2019 purchase of the 500 Series easy. Bosch's reputation over the other Euro brands in the US was an added bonus. No venting, quicker drying times, and few wrinkles. I made the correct choice. And taking monthly care of my 500 will continue to take care of my needs, and for that I say thank you Bosch!

Doesn't Dry Completely

James Han 9/9/2019

Not sure entirely why but our dryer doesn't dry completely. We have to run it at least a couple times and choose modes that override the sensors because the machine thinks it's already dry and automatically stops/reduces the time to dry. Otherwise, it's quiet and looks good but we paid a lot of money for this dryer but it fails to do what it's intended to do.

Great Dryer for Couple

SueK 8/28/2019

This Energy Star dryer is perfect for a couple, drying 4 cu ft of laundry. It is a condensor style dryer which means it needs air flow around the machine and takes slightly more time to fullly dry items. This works well for me since I typically dry clothing for 20 - 30 minutes before hanging up to dry completely. It is very quiet and compact. The condensor system doesn't require a vent to the outside and reduces worry about lint fires. This is not a great dryer if you have a large family, but it's perfect for us.

Bosch compact ventless Tumble dryer

LilTex 6/9/2019

This little ventless dryer is a pleasant surprise from the past several other brands of vented clothes dryers we have owned. It does a wonderful job of drying. Some thicker cotton items like socks and thicker tees take a little longer drying but they also took a little longer with the vented dryers. We still can't believe they operate so quiet. The lint filter inside the door does an amazing job of actually collecting lint. I am still in awe of how soft the tee shirts are and especially how soft the towels are. We were used to having towels so rough they felt like sand paper. In the beginning I was very skeptical of both appliances running on 220 volts. Until I kept checking our meter. I am amazed at how little electricity the set has actually been using. I have to wash almost every day. I definitely recommend Bosch washers and dryers. They have been totally well thought out.

Good, with some adjustments

SVinDC 5/11/2019

I switched from a vented to this ventless dryer to fit a small laundry closet. I was worried about perpetually damp clothes, but you CAN get clothes to dry nicely. My advice: (1) there is a page in the instruction manual explaining the settings and load sizes, follow those guidelines; (2) Use "high" washer spin speed if possible; and (3) Select dry level +1 or +2. At first I just guessed without reading the manual and ended up with wet clothes like other reviewers complained of. It's taken some trial and error, and yes the drying time will be somewhat longer, but now my clothes are dry but not static-y, without dryer sheets.

Dreamy dryer

Henry 4/25/2019

The Bosch is compact, quiet, smart, robust and good looking and works for peanuts. In brief, just the kind of well-engineered and designed laundry robot you're glad to have in your home.

Erhard 4/17/2019

Many programming options to tailor the drying program to your needs, low noise operation. As we have stacked the dryer on top of a washer, we found it particularly useful that we could change the door hinges from right to left to align with the washer.

Beautiful machine

Oneida 4/15/2019

Very attractive, good choice if you don't have the set up for a dryer vent, four stars as it takes a long time to dry and the sensor needed repair

Extremely Poor Performance

Steve 4/15/2019

I purchased this dryer from Lowes in December. It takes forever to dry clothes. However, the biggest problem with this dryer is that it will raise the temperature in our laundry room about 10 degrees. Did not notice this so much until the weather got nicer. It will not be possible to use this dryer in the summer or anytime the temperature outside is over 70 degrees. I paid over two thousand dollars for the washer and dryer and now I am going to try and sell them for about half of what I paid three months ago. If I cannot sell them, I am toying with the idea of cutting a hole in the back of the dryer so I can vent it to the outside. This is the most expensive and worst performing dryer I have ever purchased.

I do not recommend this dryer

Dan L in NYC 4/10/2019

I own this dryer. Unless you are forced to have a condensation dryer, I would never recommend one. Drying cycles are much longer. Clothes come out damp. Lots of extra maintenance beyond the simple cleaning of the lint filter: frequent removal and cleaning of the slide-out heat exchanger; more frequent cleaning of the moisture sensors; cleaning out the drain hose, and in our case, because our dryer's placement didn't allow draining the condensation into our plumbing system, we collect the condensation in a bucket and then have to pour it out every few loads. A real pain in the neck. Literally, because in order to clean out the drain hose you have to get down near the floor and then blow real hard into the hose, then reach way deep into the dryer in order to pick up all the muck that had been in the hose and is now back in the dryer. My wife and I are sad that we own this dryer after many years of owning other Bosch appliances.

Was excited to get a new machine. However it takes way to long to get things dry.it seems to take hours and they still come out damp. I did not intend to hang dry everything.....

Nice dryer

retired13 3/6/2019

We had been looking at condensing dryers for quite some time, as friends of ours in Germany use them and enjoy the convenience of being able to install them just about anywhere since there is no venting requirement, and that they are energy efficient. We knew one of the drawbacks was increased drying times, but that is usually not an issue; we just allow for the extra time when doing our clothes washing/drying. We have used our set for just about a year now and couldn't be more satisfied. As reported by others, heavier items like jeans or towels can come out on the damp side, but we usually either just hang them for an hour or so after the normal cycle, or re-run them using the 40 minute cycle. I have had to clean the exchanger a few times, and it was easily removed, cleaned, and reinstalled. This is a fairly quiet machine, and most of the noise we observe comes from buttons or zippers hitting the drum as it spins, or from the three wool dryer balls we usually include with each load. Although this may not be the best dryer for a family with a significant amount of laundry (relatively small capacity), it is perfect for the two of us.

Sometimes Good, Sometimes Not

Npskid 12/23/2018

The drying is inconsistent. Sometimes my clothes are dry when the cycle is done, sometimes they are not. Also, the dryer sheet always gets sucked into the lint collector, so it doesn't soften my clothes as much as I would like.

New Experience

Suzie 12/13/2018

I needed a new washer/dryer and realized I had to change from a vented dryer to a condensation dryer. I was hesitant but am happy to report this dryer hasn't disappointed me. Yes it's an adjustment as drying takes longer but my clothes come out softer. If you have to change to a condensation dryer I'd recommend the Bosch. I did alot of research before making my purchase and I know I made the right choice!

One of the best compact Dryers we have ever bought

GQSir 12/12/2018

We bought this Dryer and washer as a combo over 2 years ago. we love the fact it does not need to be vented to the outside. We have had no problems with it. The only minor thing wrong with it in 2 years is a small crack in the window of the door

Leave clothes damp

Faeghe 12/11/2018

I bought this about a year ago and since was not drying our clothes called for service. A nice technician came and test the machine and said that nothing is wrong with it and suggested to put it in number 3 for dryness. Still clothes come out damp and I have to hang them.when I try to put them to dry for second time the dryer stops. It is very frustrating

Good option for small spaces and electric only

Snaz99 12/11/2018

Stackable dryer fits in small space and looks nice, lots of options for drying. Regular cotton dry will get about 90-95% dry, often need to hang dry for remainder. Issue with door since I bought it that I need to hold door closed a certain way or it won't activate drying. Door is shut, plus need to apply extra pressure with my hand, otherwise will just beep at me.

There is SO MUCH to love about this dryer!

Hischild 12/11/2018

I bought this dryer about 2 years ago. I LOVE it!! It has many drying levels which are nice when you want to dry some things less which are more delicate, and some things you want more dry. I love the sanitize cycle ln both my washer and dryer because it kills germs and, it seems, fungus from socks! It is very quiet and is very easy to clean the lint trap! It is so easy to choose from the many different levels and lengths of drying. It dries the clothes according to how I choose, accurately! There is just SO MUCH to love about this dryer!

CONDENSATION - Doesn't get the clothes dry!

Bill3 12/2/2018

We are not at all happy with the condensation concept. It is supposed to be a Dryer, not a damp dryer. We wish we had fully realized that and found one that has a conventional vent.

Super quiet

dwoot 9/10/2018

I bought this two months ago. We bought these machines for the smaller footprint, which fulfilled our needs in our space, and it is truly whisper quiet. The ventless dryer takes longer than I had hoped/expected, and I often have to use the timed or wool settings to finish drying items. I am slowly learning what works best for our needs, and feel the unit does a good job, especially with a variety of clothing materials.

I bought this dryer a couple weeks ago and stacked it with the matching washer. Its a great set up and the dryer is amazingly quiet. It takes a little longer then the vented dryer we had before, but the results are the same and its super efficient.

Replacement dryer

littlemissbutte 9/4/2018

Purchased the replacement washer and dryer. Had a 40 year old Bosch set that were awesome which I had bought second-hand and used for 8 years. Really like the dryer with the bigger door and it does not have to have a vent. Very nice feature. Top quality appliances, well engineered.

Very disappointed

Carol 8/30/2018

I bought a Bosch condensation dryer 3 years ago. It gets light use since there are only two of us using the dryer and we do 1-2 drying loads a week. The "check drain" light came on and troubleshooting didn't make it go away so I had to call a repair person and pay $100 for his visit. He checked the accessible parts and declared it needed a new drain pump. I am hard pressed to understand how an expensive dryer from a company that claims to offer "quality, perfection and reliability" needs a new drain pump in such a short time of light use. This will be an expensive repair for an already expensive machine. Bosch customer service was useless, not the "outstanding customer service – before and after the purchase" they advertise. I had a different "European" brand dryer that was extremely unreliable before purchasing the Bosch so I was reluctant to purchase another "European" brand dryer but the salesperson assured me the Bosch was an outstanding machine and would give me years of good service. It did give me years of good service - 3 of them to be exact. On the contrary, the Sears undercounter front-load dryer we have at our vacation home has been working happily and repair-free for 15 years. There's a lesson there.

Could be better

Lyu92 8/23/2018

Apparently my last review didn't meet guidelines. I write because I have this machine in my apartment, and I have not great luck with it. Very often, at least 65% of the time, when I am trying to use the dryer, and click start, the machine does not automatically start. Instead, it beeps twice, and I have to click start a few more times until it turns on, but that is concerning. What is more frustrating is when I try to re-dry clothes because they didn't fully dry the first time (which again, also happens). That is when the machine really refuses to turn on. I guess it uses some sort of sensor that detects the dryness of clothes - I'm not sure, and don't quote me on that, but if it is, it's a terrible sensor. Overall, I do not see anything positive about this dryer just from my two points. Now, I hope this review goes through. It's highly disappointing to see such great reviews when I haven't experienced the same.
