I will add thought that the inside of the dryer can feel a bit humid when you first open and so you think the clothes aren’t dry but just give it about a minute and then it airs out and the clothes do actually feel dry. I think the key thing is to get a very good washer that spins really fast and hard so the clothes already come out half dry before you even put them in the dryer. Bought my stack at Bray and Scarf, I think it was about $1700 and I paid a contractor $1500 to get the whole thing set up in a closet -water hook up etc, did not need a bucket. The dryer basically vents back into itself. MAybe thats a bosch specific feature. . It was worth every penny.I don’t know how people can stand to not have a w/d in the unit.
