“ Brand: Bosch „
This is the washer I use at work which happens to be a 64ft luxury motor boat. First off all I would like to congratulate Bosch on making a washer/ dryer that still works after 3years of being bounced about,sometimes seriously, even though the handbook says mount on a level stable surface!
Although this is a washer /dryer I tend to use it on the wash only mode and then use the dryer. It is a front loading machine with a 5kg capacity which is not large enough for all the washing in full season with 6 people on board but good enough for the rest of the year.The extra functions available are pre-wash,reduced ironing,rinse plus and wash plus. Normal programmes are cottons ,mixed load, easy care ,delicates and woollens ,so there is a good range to choose from and the temperature can go up to 90 and that´s hot. There is also a Rinse and freshen up programme which can also be useful in the hot weather.
A great feature of this machine is the digital screen which shows the progress of the wash by a line moving along under the appropriate symbol. It also gives you the overall length of the programme and how long until the end . When it does end the machine beeps so you can get the wash out as fast as you can and on to the next lot.
I do have one complaint though in that the dryer seems to take ages ,you can adjust the spin cycle to the max of1200rpm which can help reduce the amount of time needed to dry the load but I still end up with laundry draped all over the boat. I think a separate dryer would serve better and be more efficent but we have no room. Overall I find it easy to use and also very quiet which is a big bonus as people on board do not even know it is on . Well done Bosch.
