Save detergent.

Use too little detergent and your laundry won’t come clean, use too much detergent and your washing machine has to work overtime. Bosch i-DOS auto-dosing technology takes away the guesswork, can reduce detergent use by up to 38%, and because you only need to refill the detergent every few weeks, i-DOS can also reduce packaging.

Absolutely amazing

The menu is super easy to use, the i dos system is so economical, and the mashine is so so so so quite. I feel spoiled with this mashine. Made my life so easy. Also cloths come out very clean and not very creased even on 1400spin. Love it!

The perfect washing machine

This machine is perfect, it is so quiet and easy to use. The IDOS system is fanatastic. Well done Bosch. My last bosch lasted over 12yrs. Great product

Brilliant machine

I alway buy Bosch appliances, sometime they may cost a fraction more, however when I don't buy Bosch I regret it and end up going and buying Bosch to replace a poor performing appliance. This machine was a little more than I wanted to spend but the cash back promotion attracted me to the model. I am so pleased that I did. I knew the features read well and sounded as if it would be a good machine, however the control panel and selectable options are so brilliant that you are in full control of your washing, but in a very easy intuitive manner. The icing on the cake is then then noise of this machine, or should I say lack of noise! It is just so quiet, even on full spin I had to check it was actually working. The only time I hear a noise is if water is flowing into the machine and I think thats the house pipe work rather than the machine! Overall early days but so far so good, my last Bosch washing machine was 16 years old and could of been repaired easily I'm sure but it was time for a new one. If it lasts as long and performs as well then its money very well spent! Well done Bosch another great product.

Beep goes on forever!

Apart from being unable to limit the number of beeps upon end of program which is really anoying,the machine is great. I want a loud singular beep, only one. Not something that keeps nagging me, escpicially when I try to put the kids to sleep. No, I dont want to postpone the program to plan for the beep to come at a more convenient time. I want a simple setting for this, easily done with a few rows of code in the MCU when programming, shame on you product magager!
