    Its likely that where the washing machine is plumbed in, there is a stop valve or similar - any chance that its not open fully so that the machine doesn't get enough water?  (that said, washing machines should give an alert if there isn't enough water flow / pressure).  Also - is it flat/level (newer iphones have a built in level sensor)

    I dont have experience of Bosch washing machines, but for what its worth I hate my Bosch dishwasher due to it being a "jet dry" model (no drying cycle heating element) and everything comes out wet :(

    Can't say I have heard Mrs O complaining about that, her rock down at the river seems to be 100% reliable even after several million years.
    😂🤣

    @IvanOpinion I’m starting to wonder if a rock at the river might do a better job!

    There’s nothing wrong with the water pressure/inlet etc. The pressure is excellent. The machine isn’t faulty either. It’s been the same since brand new and the same with the last two washers. My friends complain of the same issues and my granny has actually gone back to hand-washing a lot of things because she says she can do a better, quicker job herself. 

    I think a lot of people have either got used to these rubbish modern machines or they never knew anything different so they don’t see a problem.

    No washing machine has a drying cycle heating element. They just spin dry and then you hand the washing out to line dry.
    You need a tumble dryer or a washer-dryer with a tumble drying function if you don't want to line dry clothes.

    Yet you seem to be the only one on this thread who has an issue?

    I found the more modern machine I had which washed in around an hour wasn't as good as the one that takes three hours.

    I also add extra water to my washing machine (using a large watering can) on the wash cycle. 

    If I don't, there seems to be very little water in it after the water finishes going in.

    I like to see my water and suds.

    They said their dishwasher doesn't have a dryer element...  I've never found that to be an issue, mostly because I don't ever need to get stuff out again straightaway so I can just open the door a few inches and put away later/next morning.

    As for the OP.   We have a Bosch washing machine (maybe 7 years old now?) and have had none of the described problems.

    Oops, as the whole discussion is on washing machines I didn’t notice that post was about a dishwasher! 
    Our dishwasher opens the door at the end of the cycle to let the steam out which is very helpful.

    What brand and model is it? You don't seem to have specified...
