Bosch 500 Series Compact Front-Load Washer & Dryer Set

  • Based on customer reviews published by Bosch, this product has a 4.6-star rating from 220 reviews.
  • Three positive comments are:
    • carol (5-star): "This is my second Bosch washer, and there is a reason for that. I appreciate the quality, environmental sensibilities, and effectiveness of their machines. It's quiet (once I figured out how to turn of the reminder signal), does a great job, and provides many options for whatever I want to wash."
    • Axschumer (5-star): "great washer — I love the number of options and its so very quiet."
    • Hector (5-star): "After 16 years our Bosch axis washer broke, so we replaced it with the 500 series and we love it, easy to use water and energy efficient."
  • Three negative comments are:
    • Beth (1-star): "If I could give no stars I would, I have had 2 sets of these for two different homes. Both had dryer issues with the pump. One was kind of fixed and the other not at all. Bosch does not stand behind their products. I will never ever buy another Bosch product!!"
    • JoannaG (1-star): "Our brand new washer doesn't work. Apparently needs to have the drum spin motor replaced. Same with the dryer — needs a heating unit replacement. Bosch is taking care of the repairs, but between scheduling and parts it's been a few months now without a working washer or dryer. Very disappointed at this price point — these are major issues — the products are simply defective."
    • Hugh (1-star): "My wife &I are not happy with the washer. Read & reread the manuals. Washer is a problem!!"

  • This product has an average customer review rating of 4.7-star from 203 reviews on Wayfair.
  • Three positive comments are:
    • R Patrick (5-star): "This washer is used in my RV. It works GREAT! Clothes are thoroughly cleaned and do not come out wrinkled."
    • Wesley (5-star): "We first purchased a Bosch front load washer in 2012 when we moved to Paris. When we moved back to Washington, DC and our old front load washer gave up the ghost, Bosch was the obvious choice. The excellent reliability, durability, variety of wash options, quiet operation and effectiveness place it at the forefront of the best machines on the market. For example, I had previously always washed my cashmere sweaters by hand, or taken them to the dry cleaners. However, with the Bosch's dedicated wool hand wash cycle, I am able to machine wash them with complete confidence. Yes, Bosch may be a bit more expensive than some competitors, but the value for cost far exceeds the competition!"
    • Blair (5-star): "Overall pleased with my purchase. I've owned the Bosch washer for a little over a month so far, and no real complaints so far. It can be a bit loud for the couple minutes where the high spin is running, but generally it's relatively quiet. Capacity is perfectly suitable for my one person household. The touch pad can be a bit finnicky and sometimes requires multiple pushes to turn on."
  • Three negative comments are:
    • Maui (1-star): "The power cord is located at the bottom of the machine, unlike the older Bosch models where the power cord exited at the top of the machine. I am unable to plug the power cord into my condensation dryer, which sits on a shelf that is 7 inches above the washing machine because the 69-inch cord will not reach the receptacle. Why can't the manufacturer/assembler, that is located in North Carolina, offer two options for the length of a power cord, a 69-inch for normal stacking and a 79-inch to accommodate buyers that need the extra length. When I receive an answer to resolve my problem and the machine works, I know my review will be better."
    • JoannaG (1-star): "Our brand new washer doesn't work. Apparently needs to have the drum spin motor replaced. Same with the dryer — needs a heating unit replacement. Bosch is taking care of the repairs, but between scheduling and parts it's been a few months now without a working washer or dryer. Very disappointed at this price point — these are major issues — the products are simply defective."
    • Dmcraig (2-star): "I usually don't write reviews of products I buy, but I decided to write this one because I was so disappointed that this washing machine needed major repairs less than two years after I bought it. It's a pity, because I like the machine. Now I don't think I could buy another Bosch product."

  • This product has an average customer review rating of 4.8-star from 169 reviews on Appliances Connection.
  • Three positive comments are:
    • Frederick E from Fairfield, NJ (5-star): "does its job well, nothing fancy".
    • Olga from Tucson, AZ (5-star): "This washer has all the qualities that I was looking for. I was really confused to order online but then I gathered courage and ordered it, and I am really glad that shipping process was perfect and also the washer is exactly same as described. Highly Recommend!!!!!"
    • John Franklin from Richfield, Minnesota (5-star): "I wanted to buy Bosch washer for a long time. Now I have it. Very happy. The size is just perfect. It has 15 wash cycles. Awesome!"

Maytag Maxima Front-Load Washer and Dryer

  • On Maytag's website, this product has an average customer review rating of 4.7-star from 534 reviews.
  • Three positive comments are:
    • Cfre760 from California (5-star): "Just like the review I wrote for the matching dryer, this washer is the perfect model for a large family. The steam features is a welcomed delight, it gets the stains out so you don't have to throw those stained clothes into the rag bin. Love my Maytag set."
    • ScottyB38 from Watertown NY (5-star): "Only problem with this product is they should tell you the door opening ins not interchangeable. The unit has to be order left or right door opening. The best thing is it keeps your cloths fresh with the spin cycle."
    • Hesfam from Colorado Springs, CO (5-star): "Great customer service and delivery and set up! So easy to buy on the website!"

  • Three negative comments are:
    • Ambassador Mount from Tacona, WA (1-star): "Our washer breaks allot and even with the extended warranty . No repair man for weeks on end".
    • Susan L. from Laguna, CA (1-star): "Bought new, was delivered and installed. Worked great for 3 weeks then gave an error code F05 E02. A Maytag authorized service guy came over, said it was a door sensor and ordered the part. Two weeks later the part arrived to the service guy and he came back out and installed it. The machine still did not work. So the service guy said to return the machine to where I bought it. Service basically gave up. Maytag is garbage and I have a one-month-old machine that no one will fix."
    • Mrs. Collins from Schellsburg, PA (1-star): "Bought brand new in November 2016. After 2 months would not spin clothes out. In May received new replacement. After 2 months it did the same thing. They have replaced the tub, magnetic ring, control panel, and now after almost a year are telling me it is because I don't have it on a dedicated circuit. I would have to rewire my house to have it on a dedicated circuit. We did try it on the one dedicated circuit we have in the house. And it STILL will not wring out the clothing. My clothes are so wet when you put them in the dryer (which we bough at the same time) the drying has condensation inside when they are done and they clothe have water condensation on them... VERY disappointed. I have taken more days off work for the Maytag repairman to come work on my washer than I have taken for anything else this year. There is obviously a problem but Maytag will not admit it."

  • This product has an average customer review rating of 4.7-stars from 527 reviews on Lowe's.

    • CEM 2 (5-star): "I am so happy that I bought this large capacity washer. Saves me a lot of time during wash days."
  • Three negative comments are:
    • Anonymous (1-star): "I bought this machine about 5 months ago. I am not exactly happy with it so far. First of all, when you turn on the power, it has a loud signal. This cannot be turned off, and when doing laundry late at night, it wakes the whole family up. Second, it is now not spinning all the water out of my clothes, so it has to be serviced. This should not be happening with a practically brand new machine. This is my first Maytag machine- I am not sure I will purchase again. Also, is aware that these machines are much deeper than other models, so they barely fit in my laundry closet, and the laundry door barely shuts."
    • Anonymous (1-star): "We have order 3 washers & dryer sets and everyone one of the dryers' drum scratched the inside of the unit. Each one had additional varying issues, but overall it seems like there is a consistent problem with production on the dryers. The washers hold additional water in the dispenser tray and manually has to be scooped out, so that it won't overflow. Any washing has to be done while you are present to avoid water damage. I have reached out for help from Maytag with little success thus far to why three of these models have had back-to-back issues."
    • Anonymous (1-star): "I washed a semi heavy bathroom rug in my brand new washer. Would not rinse the run. Used second rinse cycle and still would rinse. Called repair. They said both drum in washed was damaged and must be replaced. I have washed this rug several times in my older front Maytag.washer without any issues. Very disappointed satisfied with this new Maytag. Only used washing machine for about three weeks. The repair person told me I should not wash anything heavy. This is a problem because 8 have king size E bedding comforters."

    • Big packy, British Columbia (3-star): "Purchased in 2017, does a great job when its working, but, the drum flew apart 1 month in and had to be replaced, 3 months later the control module was replaced on warranty. Now the control has to be replaced again at $500. The machine cut our water bill in half, the clothes come out very clean, little drying time, etc."
