Washing machine smells

What can I do when my washing machine smells bad?

Do you have the feeling that your washing machine smells bad? It is possible if you often wash at low temperatures and with small amounts of detergent. In this case, unpleasant smells can develop in the machine or your laundry. You should therefore wash regularly at 60º C or higher and also use the correct amount of detergent, in accordance with the manufacturer and amount of laundry.

In addition, it’s advisable to use the washing machine cleaner tested by Bosch to clean your machine. This helps removes unpleasant smells and avoids them building up in future.
