    2 cars with an interval of 3 years went to the trash. Top loading Bosh WOT 20352OE. The plastic reservoir, which can be punctured with a finger in both cases, was “sawn” with a 10-kopeck coin, water leaked onto the motor, shorted out, and electronics burned out. The master said that it’s cheaper to buy a new one! I repeat, TWO cars of the same brand with an interval of a couple of years! Sorry, but I believe that this quality is “below the plinth” and for 6 years now I have been using the Whirlpool AWE 7527/1 and a half times cheaper machine and I am VERY satisfied! And now I won’t get Bosch at gunpoint!

    • Gravatar Andrey Andrew:

      Before washing, check pockets for any debris and coins, including. It is unlikely that the reason for the breakdown was this, I'm afraid you are disingenuous ...
