Fresh laundry makes you feel better in your own skin and in your own home. The right washing programme guarantees deep-cleaned, cared-for textiles. Washing machines with the Home Connect function take on responsibility for selecting the ideal programme and save on water and electricity.
How a smart washing machine with Home Connect works
Sensors in your smart washing machine detect the textile type and degree of dirtiness and set the washing programme accordingly.
With a Home Connect washing machine from Bosch or another home appliance brand, as well as getting a grip on cleanliness, you'll be able to wash your laundry flexibly whenever you want. Do you need your washing to be ready at a specific time? No problem! Simply start your intelligent washing machine using the Home Connect app at the time that suits you best.
You can also trigger special stain programmes with your smartphone or tablet. Additional control tips in the app ensure an environmentally friendly washing cycle with a consistently fresh result.

Analysis and service via remote diagnostics
Do you need an engineer because your smart washing machine isn't working as well as usual? Just call the Home Connect hotline and you will be connected directly to customer service.
With your permission, the customer service representative can access your washing machine online and start remote diagnostics. Normally, the error message can be retrieved and the problem solved in this way. If an engineer does need to come in person, he or she can use the remote diagnostics analysis data to prepare for maintenance tasks or repairs on your appliance. This saves you both time and money.
Frequently asked questions
All smart washing machines are designed to save energy and protect your washing. Your EasyStart assistant automatically selects the most efficient programme for your needs and the ActiveWater Plus feature reduces the consumption of electricity and water. Intelligent sensors in the washing machine ensure that only the water that is actually needed is used – based on the textile type and fill level of the machine. Appliances with the intelligent dosing system i-Dos also save on washing detergent. You fill the detergent compartment and when the washing cycle starts, the machine doses just the right amount for the fill level, textile type, and degree of dirtiness.
Once your smart washing machine is connected to the Home Connect app, you can start it and monitor the washing cycle even when out and about.
Retrofitting is possible but not recommended. A solution installed later on is relatively expensive and often does not include the same features as a solution that is integrated from the start. Home appliances with Home Connect are tailored to each other and connected via the app. You must therefore check carefully before exchanging or adding electronics.
Home Connect only works with a smart washing machine that is designed for this functionality. In the Smart Home Appliances area, you can find out which home appliance types work with Home Connect. The Home Connect app can be used on smartphones and tablets and requires a WiFi connection. You can control your home appliances using multiple smart devices.
