  • AllergyPlus: specially developed for the needs of allergy sufferers and sensitive skin.

    Tough on germs, gentle on sensitive skin

    Clothes that are not washed properly often carry allergy particles that can cause skin irritations. That’s why we developed AllergyPlus. When selected, a higher washing temperature is maintained for longer as well as an additional rinse, to effectively reduce as much allergen residue as possible. That means fewer pollen particles, animal hairs, and dust mites in your clothes. This program is ideal for allergy sufferers and sensitive skin.

    SpeedPerfect is a special fuction developed for situations when time matters. With SpeedPerfect you can reduce your washing time by up to 65%* without compromising on results. It can be used in combination with most of the programmes, all loads and textiles. For example, by selecting the mix programme in combination with SpeedPerfect, you can thoroughly wash up to 4 kilograms of mixed load in just 41 minutes. (*Difference between the duration of Easy Care Programme 40°C and the duration of Easy Care Programme 40°C in combination with the SpeedPerfect option).

      1. My series4 Bosch washing machine has finished its cycle but the door will not unlock . What do I do to make it open

        1. There is an emergency door open option.
          Remove the round door covering the filter, look for a strip of plastic that hangs down, it has a hole in the end.
          Put a small screwdriver in the hole and pull the plastic strip down.

          1. I have the same issue and am not technical at all – the round door covering the filter, can you advise where would I find that ? Thank you

  1. Delivered yesterday:

    1)Getting persistent error message E18
    2) Spin doesn’t empty the water out
    3) Having intermittent difficulty opening door

    Please advise as a matter of urgency as unable o wash clothes or linen.

    1. Hallo, Error code E18 means:
      1) Drainage hose blocked or kinked
      2) Pump is blocked
      Solution: Clean pump of filters in the water supply hose.

  2. After 20 minutes wash ended the washing machine door is locked. It says in the screen End but doesn’t let me unlock the door. Can any one help me to unlock please!

    1. In most cases, the door can be opened with an emergency lock. Open the door where the waste filter is. There is usually a small button that is pushed or pulled. This will open the door.
