Cleaning the washing machine detergent drawer

Bosch washing machines come with self-cleaning detergent drawers as standard, which have smooth walls and jets sprays in each corner which automatically flush the detergent chambers clean of any remaining detergent residue, saving you the time and effort of manually cleaning the detergent drawer on a regular basis. If you do however need to remove any stubborn residues from the detergent drawer, we recommend following the steps below for a thorough clean.

Step by step guide

  • Remove the detergent drawer from the washing machine by operating the middle lock and sliding it out.
  • Allow the detergent drawer to soak in a wash basin and remove any stubborn residues with a cleaning cloth or small brush such as a toothbrush.
  • Dry the detergent drawer thoroughly and slide the detergent drawer back into the housing.
