What reviewers liked

We bought Bosch 500 series washer and dryer a little less then 2 years ago and have not had any issues. It takes good care of the clothes and is very quiet. It does tend to take longer than many other washers and is probably too small for more than 2 people, so it may not be very suitable for a family with kids. But that is the case with compact washers anyway.
This product is the best of the best with performance, convenience, design, and efficiency.
This compact washer handles a large load very efficiently. Works well as part of a stacked washer dryer combination.
This also features 15 wash cycles and 9 options for delivering a great performance for all types of cloths. Provided with child lock, senor driven washing programs, LED display, it also has anti-vibration circular sidewalls for reducing vibration.
With 15 preset wash cycles and 9 customizable wash options, it’s easy to achieve a personalized clean that suits not only the type of fabric you’re cleaning but also your own personalized laundry preference with this highly versatile front load washer.
It’s also worth mentioning that this machine offers nine different options including Speed Perfect, Extra Rinse, Temperature, Spin Speed, an impressive Child Lock option which prevents children from toying with the machine among others.
You can secure the washer for your child against inadvertent change of the set functions. To do this active the child lock after cycle start, it’s a great option for users. Hence prevent any cycle interruption set the cycle selector back to initial cycle.
The size is small, but it requires a lot of your work. They allow you to reduce the daily expenses of your clothes and help to solve the tedious process of washing in a wash basin.

What reviewers didn't like

I've had this dryer for all of one week. I am currently negotiating with the appliance store to come and get it out of here. The dryer simply put does not dry the clothes. Period, full stop. The sales associate says he tried to tell me that it did not dry adequately. He claims that it is the European way of doing laundry. This dryer, while sporting a well respected name, does not perform. If you want to dry your clothes by setting the timer again and again, over multiple days, and still have them damp laundry, then this is the dryer for you. Lastly, I was in Europe for three weeks this summer and did laundry in Pilsen, CZ, Salzburg, AU, and Vienna, AU and on each occasion my laundry came out dry...American style.
A few complaints about the long term durability of the machine.
May not enough for large family
