The Bosch Nexxt front-loading washer is a solidly engineered, dependable washing machine. This stainless steel unit offers many user-friendly features, such as customised washing programs, a positive touch-and-feel control panel, a high 16-inch, 180-degree-opening loading door, a self-closing magnetic door lock and a drum capacity of 7.98kg. Although these washers are designed for ease of operation, getting to know the machine takes time. Consequently, new owners sometimes encounter a number of frustrating mechanical and electronic faults during the first few washing cycles.
