Bosch 500 series vs. LG3360 for upstairs laundry room?

clubcrackerOctober 26, 2011

Hi all,

I had pretty much decided on the Bosch 500 Vision series w/d (electric dryer) for our new house. But now I am doubting myself and looking at the LG 3360's and 2550's.

Can anyone offer any insight or real life experiences?

I'm particularly concerned about cleaning/dryin quality (of course) but also about noise and vibration since this set will be located where we sleep.

Thanks!

Mary

We have a Bosch 500 Nexxt and I will probably never buy another front loader again. Had a Maytag before. My main issue is that the manufacturers are so eat up with saving water that I don't feel that the clothes are getting clean. I dump a couple of extra gallons of water in each load & the clothes are now cleaner (sweat smells). Mechanically the Bosch is a fine unit - we have had no issues in the last 4 years.

I have tried all recommendations about detergent, amount thereof and so forth. The only thing that helped was adding extra water.

I have a Bosch nexxt 500 and I don't know how different it is from the vision you are considering. The vibration on my machine is pretty bad.
My laundry room is on the first floor of a crawl space house and I can feel the vibration upstairs in our game room when it spins.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Any LG owners here? 3360 or 3550? Happy?

I'm open to other brands too...but can't afford Miele.

Need an electric dryer, good wash and dry quality, like to have steam (hate to iron), and little noise/vibration for 2nd floor location.

After some research I'll probably try the stall mat under whichever set we choose...
