Bosch Appliances Earn Highest Ranking in J.D. Power and Associates Major Home Appliance Customer Satisfaction Study.
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- A leader in high quality and energy-efficient appliances, Bosch is proud to announce that it has been ranked highest in customer satisfaction in the dishwasher and clothes dryer segments by J.D. Power and Associates in their 2006 Major Home Appliance Study. Bosch earned the highest ranking among dishwasher and clothes dryer manufacturers due to its overall customer satisfaction in functionality and performance, especially in the area of energy efficiency.
While this is the second annual J.D. Power and Associates home appliance study, this is the first time they have examined customer satisfaction with laundry appliances.
"Ranking the highest in two of the J.D. Power and Associates major appliance study segments confirms that our products' value, quality and performance resonate with our consumers," said Franz J. Bosshard, president and CEO. "Nothing matters more to us than the long term satisfaction of our customers with our products and we look forward to continuing to offer the best in performance, convenience and energy efficiency."
While operational performance was a key factor in Bosch ranking the highest, its dishwasher owners also noted satisfaction with the quietness of the product during use, another of its major hallmarks in the industry, and they reported fewer problems than other competitive brands. In addition, Bosch dryer owners noted its ability to leave clothes dry and wrinkle-free, excellent energy efficiency and low noise level during operation. The dryers also received high marks for aesthetic design, color and finishes, and the length and scope of the warranty.
Leading the way in energy efficiency, every Bosch dishwasher has earned the ENERGY STAR[R] label and already exceeds the stringent 2007 federal energy standards. The entire collection features SENSOTRONIC[R] technology, which checks soil levels and adjusts water and temperature levels accordingly - saving water and energy. This system ensures that Bosch dishwashers use as little as 3.1 gallons of water per cycle. In addition, the energy-saving condensation drying system uses the final rinse's latent heat that is stored in the stainless steel walls to hygienically dry dishes. The entire lineup also offers the Bosch exclusive AQUASTOP[R] system, a superior leak protection solution. At only 44 decibels, the top-of-the-line 800 Series model is the quietest dishwasher currently manufactured in the United States.
Bosch Nexxt[R] and Axxis[TM] Laundry
Bosch offers a winning combination of efficiency, quietness, capacity and advanced cycles with its Nexxt Laundry Care System. This collection uses less water and energy even as it provides the best cleaning experience for clothes. Like the renowned Bosch dishwashers, Nexxt laundry is engineered to be exceptionally quiet in operation.
All Nexxt washers are ENERGY STAR[R] rated and already exceed the 2007 federal regulatory standards, while featuring the convenience of a front loading design. Bosch offers the most efficient washer at EVERY price point, including the Nexxt 100 Series, which is the most efficient washer on the market.
As a result of the advanced sensor package, Nexxt dryers take less time and energy than conventional dryers. To gently dry clothes, they employ the DUOTRONIC[TM] system, which adjusts the temperature based on moisture level to prevent damage from over-drying.
Also, ENERGY STAR rated, the Bosch Axxis laundry line provides a front loading design and high-efficiency operation, while featuring the exclusive Logixx[TM] computer system to give users an easy way to get clothes incredibly clean while saving water, energy and time. The high spin speeds on the Axxis models provide maximum water extraction for reduced drying time.
The Axxis line offers two high efficiency dryers - a vented and a condensation version. The condensation dryer requires no exterior venting - instead water is condensed and pumped into the same drain that the washer uses, making it ideal for interior rooms, closets and apartments. Highly versatile as well, these compact washers and dryers can be installed side-by-side or stacked to fit into a closet or other small space.
