Washing machine smells

Can domestic cleaners help when my washing machine smells?

If your washing machine smells, we advise against the use of domestic cleaners. The accumulation of smells in the laundry and washing machine can have various causes. For example, frequent washing at low temperatures or incorrect dosage of the detergent. You should, therefore, wash regularly at 60° C or higher and use the correct dosage of detergent. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on dosage and the quantity of laundry.

In addition, we recommend using the Bosch tested washing machine cleaner. If you want to be really sure, please check that the drain hose is clear and that water can’t run back into the machine. This can also be the reason that your washing machine smells. Domestic cleaners won’t help here.
