Top-of-the-line intelligent washing machine which automatically dispenses the right amount of detergent for perfect results


i-DOS detergent saver system: fine-tune the detergent amount with millilitre precision for optimal water use.

Save water by saving detergent: the unique intelligent i-DOS detergent saving system determines the precise amount of liquid detergent. Special sensors detect the load weight and fabric type and even the degree of soiling in the automatic programmes. Your laundry will be washed with the optimal amount of detergent. By avoiding overusage you will also prevent additional rinse cycles to remove the soap scum from washing detergents. With i-DOS you save liquid detergent and up to 7,062 litres of water (potential annual saving when using i-DOS instead of household washing with manual dosage using a conventional sensitive programme at an average of 220 washing loads per year.* (*Source: wfk (The Cleaning Technology Institute), Institute of Applied Research, research report WL 5132/10. Individual results may vary.)

ActiveWater™ Plus: Technology that saves money and the environment, thanks to the efficient water management system.

ActiveWater™ Plus technology takes this to the next level of intelligence boasting up to 256 load levels, which can detect the precise amount of water flowing into the machine. This means that 1kg of laundry can be washed just as efficiently as a full 8kg load.

VarioPerfect™: Wash faster or more energy efficiently.

Through its perfect program range, VarioPerfect ensures top wash results for all types of fabrics and every load. With VarioPerfect, you can set most programs to be quicker or more efficient with the SpeedPerfect and EcoPerfect functions. This reduces time by up to 65% or energy by up to 50%.

AntiVibration™ side walls: more stability and less vibration.

The design of the side walls is not only eye catching: the system also provides greater stability and reduces vibration. The enhanced insulation also regulates noise levels, making Bosch washing machines very quiet even during the spin cycle.

Fast wash programs for fast wash performance.

SuperQuick 15 enables you to wash 2 kg in 15 minutes while SuperQuick 30 washes up to 3.5kg of lightly soiled laundry in 30 minutes, including main wash, rinse and spin. For a larger load of up to 5kg, PowerWash 60 delivers clean clothes in record time.

*This feature can be model specific. Please refer programs listed under 'Technical Specs' for details’ to appear in the feature attached.

Start Delay for more flexibility.

With the 24h Start Delay, you can enjoy even more flexibility. You can preset the required start time for the washing machine program to begin. That way, your washing will be finished exactly when you want.
