(More customer reviews)Though I've been running it for slightly under two months, I am extremely pleased with all aspects of operation. Sure, compared to the run of the mill American machines, it is costlier, slower, and has a smaller load capacity, but it fits my space perfectly, and has really been a wonderful machine. I've owned similar Bosch products for years (for the same reason of limited space,) and the improvement in the current model is truly amazing. For my personal needs, this was the best machine on the market. I recommend it wholeheartedly. (If you plan on stacking a dryer upon it, you'll more or less be limited to purchasing the matching Bosch dryer because AC power supply most ideally comes from the dryer, and the matching dryer unit stacks perfectly upon this washer.) The manufacturer does not STRESS STRONGLY ENOUGH the importance of removing the four (4) packing bolts/screws from the back of the washer. Those steps are easily overlooked. MAKE CERTAIN you have removed four (4) very long bolts/screws from the back of the washer BEFORE you ever turn it on. Search until you find them!!! You can easily install the machine yourself (with your wife or husband, your friend, your teen-ager, etc.,) if you take your time, level judiciously, have a small step ladder handy, in case you're stacking the dryer atop the washer, etc.) However, if your deal includes installation, that's probably worth $50-$100. I ordered through Amazon, and the delivery was extremely speedy; but then, I order almost everything I buy through Amazon... so I was not surprised by the good service.
