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 automatically senses exactly how much detergent to use. 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.

Let Karl explain the benefits of the i-DOS washing machine.

What people are saying about i-DOS washing machine.

Choose the right i-DOS washing machine for you.

Why choose i-DOS?

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.


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.
