The Bosch Company is probably known best for its high-end dishwashers, but the company also produces other home appliances including refrigerators, stoves, washers and dryers. Bosch dryers carry the Energy Star rating. A Bosch dryer has a structured drum that provides more thorough drying and condensation drying for faster cycle completion. If mechanical problems occur with the dryer and troubleshooting efforts fail, performing a reset may return the dryer to normal functioning.
