The most often noted positive feature is the ease of use, which is a plus.

Also as is typical for people owning a front load washer, the quietness is commented on as well.
After reading through over 100 reviews for this Bosch front load washer, I didn't come across any real trends in negative comments. As is typical for all front load washers there were a few mentions of issues with vibrations during spin cycles. There was only 1 review mentioning a major failure which is below the usual relative percentage of people who mention a major failure. This seems to follow from the fact that many people listed quality as one of the major positives of this particular front load washer.
Overall this Bosch front load washer stacks up very well against the other models that I have reviewed. It may not have the top overall rating, but the reviews themselves specifically called out less specific complaints.
