i-DOS washing reviews.

The perfect dose every time.

See below for reviews on the clever Bosch i‑DOS washing machines.

Not only do our customers find it easy to use, they love the fact that the i-DOS washing machine knows exactly how much detergent to use based on how dirty the load and how hard the water is. Fill up with detergent once, and i-DOS will select exactly the right amount of detergent for around 20 washes - never too little, never too much. As a result, such precise dosing guarantees perfectly clean laundry every single load.

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.

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 will be left on the clothes permanently. Insufficient detergent can also result in discolorations and unpleasant odours.

How convenient.

For perfect washing results every time, just add in your laundry, start the automatic programme – and relax. Once you’ve added 1.3 litres of detergent you don’t need to think about it again for 20 washes*. There’s also a second tray for fabric conditioner so you can add detergent manually if you ever need to.

*20 washes based on 65ml liquid detergent per wash. Calculation may vary depending on soiling and programme. Energy labeling based on 220 washes per annum, therefore 20 (18.33) washes per month. Total amount of washes with 1.3L liquid detergent may vary.


i-DOS doses each load with millilitre precision which helps you make a host of savings. Up to 7,000 of litres of water can be saved each year by cutting overdosing and extra rinsing. It also slashes the average cycle time by 14 minutes. And, of course, it delivers outstanding results with every wash.
