The perfect dose every time.

See below for reviews on the clever Bosch i-DOS washing machines.

Not only do our customers find it easy to use, they love the fact that i-DOS washing machines automatically sense exactly how much detergent to use. Sensors inside the washing machine detect the type of fabric, the load volume and the degree of soiling, and adjusts the detergent to the optimum dose accordingly. Never too little, never too much, the best results are always achieved whilst saving detergent and water.

Now you can use the exact amount of detergent, completely automatically, with i-DOS from Bosch.

Too much.

Using too much detergent – even by a little – leads to significantly higher water and energy consumption when washing. Visible detergent residues can be left on clothing, which can trigger skin irritation and allergies.

Too little.

Using too little detergent can lead to poorer washing results. Stains won’t be completely removed and will be left on the clothes permanently. Insufficient detergent can also result in discolorations and unpleasant odours.

How convenient.

For perfect washing results every time, just add in your laundry, start the automatic programme – and relax. The clever i-DOS washing machines from Bosch determine how much detergent to use based on how dirty your load is and how hard the water is. There’s also a second tray for fabric conditioner so you can add detergent manually if you ever need to.


i-DOS doses each load with millilitre precision which helps you make a host of savings. Up to 7,000 of litres of water can be saved each year by cutting overdosing and extra rinsing. It also slashes the average cycle time by 14 minutes. And, of course, it delivers outstanding results with every wash.
