Product Reviews
Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for our family We've had this washer for ~5 years. I can wash up to 2 sets of queen sheets. Great for a small home or apartment. The high-speed drum/motor sounds way different than other machines - like its about to takeoff. I don't notice it anymore - in fact I often start a load before bed - and, the washer sits about 15 feet from our bedroom. Plus points for gentleness: It does amazing with my delicates. I've washed really fragile bras on the delicate cycle for years and they hold up. My old washer tore up everything, even in bags. Delicates hold up well in bags for other cycles too. I was worried about no bleach. I haven't missed it. Switched to Oxo-brite - I'll never go back to bleach. Minus one star for wash quality for large items like sheets with small (pillowcases, hand towels) - small stuff gets wrapped up in middle and doesn't clean well. 11/22/14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it - Here's Why! We are a family of three and have had our Axxis compact washer for almost 10 years. The spins cycle is loud but it's spinning at 1000 rpm. You can turn the RPM down but why would you not want your clothes as dry as possible? The fast spin is one of the great features of this unit. If you level this unit properly it will not rock and shake. Last year we did notice a spot of black mold inside the gasket. I cleaned it as best I could and we are making a more concerted effort to leave the door open or wipe out the bottom of the gasket. I can live with it. The washer is gentle on clothes and it's great for everything from wool delicates to denim. We were doing washable diapers for a while. Energy efficient, low water use. This washer is the workhorse washer in Germany. I will not hesitate to buy again. 12/13/14
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for 2 people We received this washer and matching dryer when buying our house. Our space is limited so stacking these is efficient. The washer and dryer are used several times weekly. Washes well and is very quiet. Have proactively kept the door open to let it dry out. No evidence of mold and mustiness. 11/8/14
Rated 1 out of 5 by MOLD The washer itself is average. It has limited capacity, but that's to be expected for a compact washer. The big problem here is MOLD, and it overrides *anything* positive about this machine. The door seal accumulates black, smelly MOLD. It doesn't matter if you leave the door open. I've left the door open since day one because it's common sense in order to dry out your machine. I *still* have black MOLD. I've tried washing it out with bleach and spraying it with anti-mold enzymes, etc., but it doesn't help. I wish I could replace the door seal but according to some other reviews, it's not replaceable. This is an *egregious* oversight in the design of the washer and I would never buy it again. I'd think twice about buying *any* Bosch washer due to this. 1/19/15
