The perfect dose every time.

Let your washing machine decide how much detergent to use.

Too much detergent or too little can lead to poor washing results. Sensors inside the washing machine detect the type of fabric, the load volume and the degree of soiling, and adjusts the detergent to the optimum dose accordingly. Never too little, never too much, the best results are always achieved whilst saving detergent and water.

What people are saying about the i-DOS washing machine WAWH8660GB

Damaconea month ago
Absolutely brilliant

Lets be honest, washing machines are hard to get excited about - but this machine is amazing. It is very quiet, cleans brilliantly - with the advantage of being very easy to use.

The i.DOS system is great - you fill it up with whole bottles of detergent and conditioner (if required) and it will automatically calculate and use the correct amount.

It's really, really good.

✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

All you need to do is fill the large washing machine drawer with 1.3 litres of liquid detergent. You can then wash multiple loads of laundry without needing to top it up. The sensors inside the washing machine detect the type of fabric, the load volume in the drum and the degree of soiling, and adjust the detergent, water and temperature and optimize the dose accordingly.


Washing in this way not only helps you to achieve perfect results but also enables you to protect the environment. By cutting down your additional wash cycles that result from using too much detergent, you are making your laundry cycle quicker and much more efficient, therefore saving energy, time and money. You can save up to 7,062* litres of water per year.

*Saving potential with an average of 220 washing loads/year, source: wfk, Institute for Applied Research, Study Report 5132/10. Individual results may vary.

Now you can use the exact amount of detergent, completely automatically, with i-DOS from Bosch.

Too much.

Using too much detergent – even by a little – leads to significantly higher water and energy consumption when washing. Visible detergent residues can be left on clothing, which can trigger skin irritation and allergies.

Too little.

Using too little detergent can lead to poorer washing results. Stains won’t be completely removed and could be left on clothes permanently. Insufficient detergent can also result in discolouration and unpleasant odours.
