Washing machine smells

What should I do when my washing machine smells?

If your washing machine smells, the reason could be frequent washing at low temperatures and using too little detergent. Therefore, wash regularly at 60° C or higher and use the correct amount of detergent, in accordance with the manufacturer and the amount of laundry.

In addition, we recommend you use the Bosch recommended washing machine cleaner. If it’s more of a charred smell, turn the machine of immediately and call customer service on 1300 369 744. This is your expert contact who will be able to quickly help you.
