Washing machine smells

Does vinegar help when my washing machine smells?

If your washing machine smells, please don’t use vinegar. It’s too aggressive and can attack the rubber parts. Instead, make sure that the drum is continuously aired and use the washing machine cleaner recommended by Bosch. That should be enough to cause the smell to disappear quickly.
