Our washer died unexpectantly so we had to go out and buy one with out lots of research. I was told Bosch is a good product. I does clean the clothing well. We have had some problems with our washer and have had to have it fixed and we only had it for 2 years. Now I don't know if that is a coincident or not. The warranty has covered everything so far but it still doesn't make you very happy or satisfied with a product.
