Bosch 8kg Series 6 Heat Pump Clothes Dryer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 111.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gentle on Clothes but never runs right Since day 1 it has been great on clothes (very gentle) and really good on power. It is also really quiet! But no matter what, clothes are hardly ever dry when it thinks they are dry (maybe 1 out of 20 loads are actually dry). The rest of the time, the dryer will think they are dry and stop the program, or by placing it on a timed cycle it will have a fit over the water container being full (when it is empty). The touch screen is super temperamental and hardly works. Yeah heat pump dryers take ages to dry clothes, but I would rather it run and dry them in 6 hours then needing to be checked and turned on every hour. Wish we never bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic. Just read the instructions [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We were a bit worried about selecting this item because there were mixed reviews out there. We had a great experience with another Bosch appliance so we decided to go ahead with the purchase. We are not disappointed. It uses heaps less energy, we don't get a room of the house all steamed up trying to dry clothes and it more than caters for our family of 3. I would totally suggest reading the instructions and the different settings before use and don't expect items to come out all hot as this dryer does not work in the same way as the old element style dryers. We are thrilled with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use well priced German engineering [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have a number of Bosch appliances. A 70 cm ceramic cooktop and a 60cm pyrolitic oven. Recently we bought a Bosch heat pump drier. With Bosch you get what you expect out of German engineering. Follow the instructions in the manual and you won't be disappointed. Our drier sits in the kitchen under a bench where a dishwasher would normally sit and it's quieter than most dishwashers. Clothes dry to perfection and all you have to do at the end of the cycle is to pull out the collected water container at the top and empty it. Then clear the lint filter - simple. I thoroughly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heat Pump Series 6 Review [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Coming up to winter so we took the plunge and purchased a new heat pump dryer. We made this decision partly based on our electricicity bill and partly due to our older dryer seeing better days. The wife had a big load of towels to try out first load and these didn't really dry as much as required on the standard settings but once I read the manual and figured out how easy it was to control the dryness level the dryer did a spectacular job and got a smile from the wife, Once I see the electricity bill at the end of the month I am hoping I will get a smile as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer. I purchased this in Nov 2020 as a replacement to my 30yr old ASKO condenser. Its great, works well drying towels, king sized sheets, clothes etc. People who think these are hard to use or complicated probably struggle with the settings on their toaster. Its simple to use, the settings easy to understand and hardly even scratches our power bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from extremely efficient, handy features We needed a condensing dryer due to no ducting to outside and were forewarned about the difference between these and conventional dryers. I wanted to use the reservoir so that I could recycle the water for outdoor plants and was worried that I'd forget to empty it, but haven't. Occasionally things can come out feeling a bit damp (pillow cases when doing bedding), but hang them on a chair for 2 hrs and they're dry. We have learned that using wool dryer balls to help mix are great, and no half-loads (unless just socks/underwear) means it happens less often, and we typically stick with the 'cupboard extra dry setting'. It does take longer to dry than conventional dryers, but you get over it quickly and we often use the timer function (put stuff in it in the morning and set timer to finish just after we get home to ensure minimal wrinkles). It also costs a fraction to run, doesn't shrink clothes, and so we actually use it more often than we would a conventional dryer! The wrinkle free setting is great, we put business clothes in with other cottons and take a few items out right away to hang, then put the setting back on to cupboard dry to dry the rest completely and it seems to do the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch heat pump dryer [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our old trusty vented dryer lasted 35plus years! So when it died, we wanted a good one to replace it. After reading specifications and reviews, we decided on this Bosch. Compared to our old one, this is so quiet! I was amazed at how easy it was to use. When I saw how much water was in the tank after its first use, I realised how much moisture the old dryer must have been putting into our home - not healthy! The clothes seemed softer when I took them out - a quick shake to cool down and then I folded them and put them away. Done! So pleased we made this choice!

Questions & Answers

For Load of this one, does it mean cloth on wet or dry? eg. if i fully load a 8 kg cloth for my washer, then when it finished, does those cloth can all go in to dryer?

Asked by: Jeff
Hi Jeff. All washing machine and dryer kg weight is measured in dry weight. For a 8kg wash, it is best to split the washing for the dryer to allow for efficient drying and not overloading the dryer. Hope this helps

Hi there, dose it require a clearance around it? if it is, what are they? thanks

Asked by: Jeff
Hi Jeff. Dryers typically need a 4-5mm clearance to the sides and back, both freestanding and integrated to help with adequate ventilation. Hope this helps.

If I buy a new Bosch dryer to replace my old one, can I get one of your service technicians to come and swap them over? (my existing one is stacked and I would prefer someone in the know to remove and replace). Also will you dispose of my old dryer?

Asked by: Anna
Hi Anna. Thanks for your question. Absolutely our friendly staff in store can arrange installation and removal of the old machine for you. They will need to quote you on the cost as it can vary slightly where you are situated. Hope this helps with your query

Does this have a drain for the water like a condenser dryer?

Asked by: siinnz
Hi there. Thanks for your question. A drain hose is recommended when using the appliance. If there is no drain hose connected to the appliance, the condensation water from the appliance will run into the condensation container. In this case, you will need to empty the condensation container each time the dryer finishes. Hope this helps with your query.

Are you able to explain to me the difference between the condenser model and this heat pump/ condenser model. Thanks so much

Asked by: Paula
Hi there Paula. Thanks for your question. A heat pump dryer is for all intents and purposes, a type of condenser clothes dryer. It uses a heat pump to heat the air and absorb moisture from your laundry. On the other hand, condenser dryers extract moisture from wet clothes and drain it away as condensed water. The dry air is heated and used to dry the clothes. Hope this helps with your query

Am I able to make a shelf for the dryer to go on?

Asked by: Natnat
Hi there. Thanks for your question. These dryers are really heavy (48.6kg), so you can't wall mount one, though you may be able to stack a heat pump dryer on top of a front loading washing machine to save space – ideally one from the same manufacturer, and secured with a stacking kit. It is not recommended to make a shelf due to the weight of the dryer.
