Do you love it, too, when your towels come out of the dryer all soft and fluffy? A washing machine and a dryer are ideal partners – one ensures cleanliness and freshness, the other guarantees the right finish: Sleek, cared-for fabrics.
How a smart dryer with Home Connect works
Smart dryers with the Home Connect function help you to select the right programme for your washing and ensure a perfect result. You simply send the dryer information on the properties of your textiles and your drying requirements using the Home Connect app. Sensors constantly measure the temperature and moisture of the textiles during the drying process. The dryer then dries your washing really gently and precisely to the required degree of dryness. This means that the appliance uses less energy and your washing comes out of the dryer without creases.
In addition, you can use the app on your smartphone or tablet to flexibly define when your Home Connect dryer from Bosch or another home appliance brand starts its work. The smart dryer adapts to your daily schedule, not the other way round.

Analysis and service via remote diagnostics
If your dryer is not running as smoothly as it normally does, simply call the Home Connect hotline and you will be connected directly to customer service.
With your permission, the engineers can access your dryer online and start remote diagnostics. Normally, the error message can be retrieved and the problem solved in this way. If you do need on-site support, the engineer can use the remote diagnostics analysis data to prepare for maintenance tasks or repairs on your appliance. This saves you both time and money.
