How does Call Bill work?
Step 1: Register
Register once with Call Bill on the website or via the Call Bill app.
Step 2: Start washing machine or dryer
Put your laundry in the washing machine or dryer, select the washing machine programme, select the machine number (5 digit number stated on the machine) using the Call Bill app or after login on the Call Bill website and start the transaction.
Step 3: Stop washing machine or dryer
The washing machine stops automatically at the end of the program. If so desired, you will receive an SMS and/or an email from Call Bill. A dryer usually stays in an anti-crease position. The program does not stop automatically. Do not leave the laundry in the dryer unnecessarily long, so that the machine is available again for the next user. You will receive a message from Call Bill when the dryer is opened.
All wash and dry transactions will be paid out of your prepaid balance. You can top up your prepaid balance in the app or this Call Bill website. Topping up is possible with all major credit cards, PayPal and even bitcoin.
And if you move and no longer wish to use Call Bill, we keep it simple: in the app you can simply request for a refund of the remaining outstanding prepaid balance.
What to do in case of a technical fault?
It may happen that after switching on the washing machine or dryer it does not work or does not work properly. This can have several causes. You can perhaps solve some of them yourself. It is important to find out whether the fault concerns the washing machines or dryers or whether there is a problem with the Call Bill payment system.
Technical faults to machines
In the event of a breakdown at one of the washing machines or dryers, please contact the caretaker. To assist with minor problems, please find below the instructions for use of types of dryers and washing machines that are often placed in launderettes where Call Bill is in operation:
