Clothes smell bad

Is the odour coming from your dried laundry a mystery to you? There is no need to panic. There is normally a simple explanation for the bad smell. It’s usually caused by not using enough detergent, with the unpleasant smell arising during washing rather than drying. If you follow the dosage instructions provided by your detergent manufacturer, the problem should soon be resolved.

Do you still have any unanswered questions about bad smells coming from dried laundry? You can call our Bosch customer service team for large appliances on 0344 892 8979. They are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
