IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS: Please
READ and SAVE this information
WARNING
Misuse of the dishwasher can result in serious injury or death. Do not use
the dishwasher in any way not covered in this manual or for any purpose
other than those explained in the following pages.
Severe product damage and/or injury could result from the use of
unqualified service technicians or non-original replacement parts. All
repairs must be performed by a qualified service technician using only
original equipment factory replacement parts.
Electrical shock or fire could result if the electrical supply for the
dishwasher covered in this manual is incorrectly installed or if the

supply has been correctly installed or the dishwasher has been properly grounded.
Never use harsh chemicals to clean your dishwasher. Some chloridecontaining products can damage your dishwasher and may present
health hazards!
Only sanitizing cycles have been designed to meet the requirements
of 6 for soil removal and sanitation efficacy. There is no intention,
either directly or indirectly, to imply that all cycles on a certified
machine have passed the sanitization performance test.
NOTICE
Never use steam cleaning products to clean your dishwasher. The
manufacturer will not be liable for the possible damages or consequences.
It is highly recommended for the end user to become familiar with the
procedure to shut off the incoming water supply and the procedure to
shut off the incoming power supply. See the Installation Instructions or
contact your installer for more information.
NSF/ANSI 184 Certified residential dishwashers are not intended for
licensed food establishments.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical
shock, or serious injury, observe the following:
1
This dishwasher is provided with Installation Instructions and this
Use and Care Manual. Read and understand all instructions before
using the dishwasher.
2
This appliance must be grounded to a metal, permanent wiring system, or an equipment grounding conductor must be run with the
circuit conductors and connected to the equipment grounding terminal or lead on the dishwasher. See the Installation Instructions
included with this dishwasher for more information on electrical
requirements.
3
Use this dishwasher only for its intended function, which is the
washing of household dishware and kitchenware.
4
Use only detergents or rinsing agents recommended for use in a
dishwasher, and keep them out of the reach of children.
5
When loading items to be washed:
• Locate sharp items so they are not likely to damage the door seal.
• Load knives and other sharp utensils with their HANDLES UP
to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.
• Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked “dishwasher
safe” or the equivalent. For plastic items not so marked, check
the manufacturer’s recommendations.
• Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels
are in place.
• Do not tamper with or override controls and interlocks.
6
Do not abuse, sit or stand on the door or dish racks of the dishwasher.
7
To reduce risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the
dishwasher.
8
When children become old enough to operate the appliance, it is
the legal responsibility of the parents/legal guardians to ensure
the children are instructed in safe practices by qualified persons.
9
Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot
water system that has not been used for two weeks or more.
Hydrogen gas is explosive. Before using a dishwasher that is connected to a hot water system that has been unused for two weeks
or longer, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from
each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is explosive, do not smoke or use an open
flame during this time.
10
Remove the dishwasher door to the washing compartment when
removing an old dishwasher for service or discarding.
11
To avoid floor damage and possible mold growth, do not allow
wet areas to remain around or under the dishwasher.
12
Protect your dishwasher from the elements. Protect against freezing to avoid possible damage to the fill valve. Damage caused by
freezing is not covered by the warranty.
4
13
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by
providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor.
• Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor
can result in risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service representative if you are in doubt whether
the appliance is properly grounded.

Dishware Materials
Note: Before using your dishwasher for the first time, check the information in
this section. Some items are not dishwasher safe and should be hand washed;
others require special loading.
Recommended
Aluminum: Colored anodized aluminum may fade over time. Minerals in
your water may cause the aluminum to darken or spot. This can usually be
removed with a soap-filled steel wool pad.
China, Crystal, Stoneware: Some hand-painted utensils may discolor,
fade or spot. Hand wash these utensils. Position fragile glassware so that
it will not topple over or come in contact with other utensils during the
wash cycle.
Glass: Milk glass may discolor or become yellow.
Non-stick Coatings: Apply a light coating of vegetable oil to non-stick surfaces after drying.
Plastics: Make sure the plasticware is dishwasher safe.
Stainless Steel, Sterling Silver and Silver Plates: Load these so they do
not come in contact with other metals.
Not Recommended
Acrylic: Crazing or small cracks throughout the acrylic may occur.
Adhesive-Joined Pieces: Adhesives that join materials such as plastic,
wood, bone, steel copper, tin, etc. may loosen.
Bone-Handled Utensils: Handles may separate.
Iron: Iron will rust. Hand wash and dry immediately.
Non-Dishware Items: Your dishwasher is intended for use in cleaning ONLY
standard household dishware and kitchenware.
Pewter, Brass, Bronze: These items will tarnish. Hand wash and dry
immediately.
Tin: Tin will stain. Hand wash and dry immediately.
Wood: Wooden bowls, wooden utensils and utensils with wooden handles
can crack, warp and lose their finish.
Loading the Dishwasher
Do not pre-wash items with loosely attached soiling. Remove all food particles, bones, toothpicks and excessive grease. Items having burned-on, bakedon or starchy soils may require some pretreatment. Refer to the Dishware
Materials section for more information about dishware suitability.
Load only dishwasher safe items. Load dishes in the dishwasher racks so the
insides of bowls, pots and pans are facing the spray arms. Avoid nesting and
contact points between dishes. Separate items of dissimilar metals.
7
Loading the Top Rack
Ensure items do not protrude through the bottom of the racks and block
the spray arms.
Note: When pushing the top rack into the dishwasher, push it until it stops
against the back of the tub so the top rack spray arm connects to the water supply at the back of the tub. Do not push racks in using the door.
Loading the Bottom Rack
Place large items in the bottom rack. Load pots, pans and bowls upside
down. Do not block vent with tall baking sheets or cutting boards, etc.
Load these items on the left side of the dishwasher.

serious injury. Load knives and other sharp utensils with edges down. Do
not allow children to handle or play near knives and sharp utensils.
The Long Silverware Basket
The long silverware basket fits along the side of the lower
rack.
The Duo-Flex Silverware Basket
This basket splits along its length, resulting in two halves
that may be placed in a variety of positions in the lower
rack, greatly increasing the lower rack’s loading versatility. The basket snaps together either back to back or end
to end as shown.
To split the Duo-Flex Silverware Basket
Grasp the basket and slide the two halves in opposite
directions as shown at right and then pull the two halves
apart.

Adding Detergent and Rinse Agent
Detergent
Use only detergent specifically designed for dishwashers. For best
results, use detergent tabs or fresh powdered dish washing detergent.
NOTICE
To avoid dishwasher damage, do not use hand dish washing products in
your dishwasher.
To avoid dishwasher damage, do not use too much detergent if your
water is soft. Using too much detergent with soft water may cause etching in glassware.
This dishwasher uses less water than most, therefore, less detergent is
required. With soft water, 1 tablespoon (15ml) of detergent will clean
most loads. The detergent dispenser cup has lines that measure detergent to 1 tablespoon (15ml) and 1.75 tablespoons (25ml). 3 tablespoons
(45ml) of detergent will completely fill the detergent dispenser.
Note: If you do not know the hardness of your water supply, use 1 tablespoon
Figure 6
(15ml) of detergent. Increase the amount if necessary to the least amount required to get your kitch7EVS0D[
enware clean.
Use the measuring lines in the detergent dispenser cup as a guide to measure the amount of
detergent recommended in Table 1.
Adding Detergent
•
1 tablespoon (15ml) will clean most loads
(see Figure 6).
•
Do not use more than 3 tablespoons
(45ml).
•
Do not over fill the detergent dispenser.
•
When using detergent tabs, lay them such that
they do not come in contact with the cover.
To Close
•
Place finger as shown in Figure 7.
•
Slide door closed and press down firmly
until it clicks.
To Open
•
To open the cover, push the button as
shown in Figure 8. Cover will slide open.

Rinse Aid
Your dishwasher was designed to use rinse aid for best drying results. To
achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or drying additive.
Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the “Add Rinse
Aid” indicator light. If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser
by following the directions below. If the light is not on, your dishwasher still
has enough Rinse Aid and there is no need to refill it.
Adding Rinse Aid
Add liquid rinse aid to the dispenser until it is
full (see Figure 9). Wipe up any excess rinse aid
that may puddle when the dispenser reservoir is
full. Lid must be snapped fully closed in order
to seal. The indicator light will go out a few
moments after the dishwasher door is shut.
See below for instructions on how to adjust the
amount of rinse aid dispensed.
Note: Setting the rinse aid to “r:00” may increase
cycle times.

Dishwasher Cycles and Options
Wash Cycles
Heavy: Best for cleaning items with baked-on food or grease. These
dishes would normally require soaking.
Auto: With our most complex soil sensing capability, this cycle is perfect
for use with mixed loads of dishware and varying amounts of food soil.
This is the most flexible cycle and is a good choice for everyday use.
Normal: Thoroughly cleans a full load of normally soiled dishes.
Note: The Energy Guide Label was based on this soil sensing cycle with all
available options turned off. As prescribed in the energy test procedure, the
unit was tested without any Rinse Aid in the Rinse Aid dispenser. A single
dose of detergent was used in the Detergent Dispenser, with no detergent
used in the prewash. The test was conducted with the upper rack in the
upper position (for Manual Adjustable Racks) or the middle position (for
RackMatic Racks). See Appendix A for Energy Test load pattern.
Speed60™*: Cleans freshly soiled dishes with easy to remove soils. This
cycle reduces cycle time while still including drying.
Rinse*: Allows you to rinse food soil off of a partial load and hold the
dishes in the dishwasher until you are ready to run a full load. Do not
use detergent in this cycle.
Wash Cycle Options
Delay Start: Allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up to 24
hours.
SpeedPerfect™*: Reduces cycle time by up to 25% while maintaining
cleaning performance.
Delicate: The Delicate option is available only in the Heavy, Auto and
Normal cycles. This cycle is best used for lightly soiled items with easy
to remove food soils.
Sanitize: The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto and Normal cycles. The Sanitize LED will light when sanitation requirements are
met. The technical sanitation measures may also improve the drying results.
Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto when turned off and
back on. If you used the sanitize option in your last cycle, the dishwasher will
default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.
Extra Shine™: Used in combination with a wash cycle (except Rinse), the
Extra Shine option raises the temperature and extends the drying time to
further enhance drying results and provide a brilliant shine.
* model dependent

Wash Cycle Information
Note: To save energy, this dishwasher has EcoSense® where the sensors in the dishwasher automatically adjust the cycle length, temperature and water changes based on
the amount of food soil and the incoming water temperature. The “Smart Control” makes
decisions that can cause the cycle time and water usage to adjust intermittently. Wash
cycle times are based on 120°F water supply. If your household water supply is different than 120°F, your dishwasher’s cycle times may be impacted.

Care and Maintenance
A regular inspection and maintenance of your machine will help to prevent faults. This saves time and prevents future problems.
Overall condition of the machine
Never use a steam cleaner to clean your dishwasher. The manufacturer is
not liable for any resulting damage.
Regularly wipe the front of the appliance with a damp cloth - water and a
small amount of liquid soap is adequate. Do not use sponges as they
could scratch the surfaces.
Stainless steel appliances: To prevent corrosion, do not use sponges.
Clean the outer edges of the inside door panel regularly to remove debris
that may collect from normal loading. If spots begin to appear on the stainless steel, make sure the rinse agent is full and functioning properly.
WARNING
Figure 10
Use caution when removing parts for cleaning as
some debris may be sharp.
Filters
The filter system consists of a coarse filter, a flat
fine filter and a micro filter. The filters keep large
foreign objects in the rinsing water away from
the pump. Foreign objects may occasionally
block the filters.
Check the filters for residue by:
• Unscrew the filter cylinder as illustrated in Figure 10-11 and take out the filter system.
• Remove any residue and clean filters under
running water.
• Reinstall filter system in reverse sequence and
ensure that the arrow marks are facing each
other after locking it into place.
Figure 11
Figure 12
Spray Arms
Check spray arms for grease and limescale
deposits.
If you find such deposits:
• Fill detergent dispenser with detergent and
start the appliance without utensils in the
cycle with the highest rinsing temperature
(see wash cycle information table).
• Clean the appliance with detergents/ appliance cleaners which are particularly suitable
for use with dishwashers.
• Unscrew the spray arms and inspect as shown in Figure 12.
18
Waste water pump
Large food remnants in the rinsing water not retained by the filters
may block the waste water pump.
Notice: Use caution when removing any blockage as items causing
blockage may be sharp.
Figure 13
In this case:
• Disconnect the appliance from the power supply.
• Remove the filters (Figure 10-11).
• Scoop out standing water - use a sponge if

Statement of Limited Product Warranty
What this Warranty Covers & Who it Applies to: The limited warranty provided by BSH
Home Appliances Corporation (BSH) in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty
applies only to the Bosch® dishwasher (“Product”) sold to you, the first using purchaser,
provided that the Product was purchased: (1) for your normal, household (non-commercial) use, and has in fact at all times only been used for normal household purposes; (2)
new at retail (not a display, “as is”, or previously returned model), and not for resale, or
commercial use; and (3) within the United States or Canada, and has at all times remained
within the country of original purchase. The warranties stated herein apply only to the first
purchaser of the Product and are not transferable.
• Please make sure to return your registration card; while not necessary to effectuate warranty coverage, it is the best way for BSH to notify you in the unlikely event of a safety
notice or product recall.
How Long the Warranty Lasts: BSH warrants that the Product is free from defects in
materials and workmanship for a period of three hundred sixty five (365) days from the
date of purchase. The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of purchase, and
shall not be stalled, tolled, extended, or suspended, for any reason whatsoever. Labor and
shipping costs are included in this basic coverage.
Extended Limited Warranty: BSH also provides these additional limited warranties:
• 5 Year Limited Warranty on Electronics: BSH will repair or replace any BSH microprocessor or printed circuit board if it proves to be defective in materials or workmanship
(excludes labor charges).
• 5 Year Limited Warranty on Dish Racks: BSH will replace the upper or lower dish rack
(excluding rack components), if the rack proves defective in materials or workmanship
(excludes labor charges).
• Lifetime Warranty against Stainless Steel Rust Through: BSH will replace your dishwasher with the same model or a current model that is substantially equivalent or better in
functionality, if the inner liner should rust through (excludes labor charges).
• BSH will replace the stainless steel door if the door should rust through (excludes labor charges).
The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of purchase, and shall not be stalled,
tolled, extended, or suspended, for any reason whatsoever.
Repair/Replace as Your Exclusive Remedy: During this warranty period, BSH or one of its
authorized service providers will repair your Product without charge to you (subject to certain limitations stated herein) if your Product proves to have been manufactured with a
defect in materials or workmanship. If reasonable attempts to repair the Product have been
made without success, then BSH will replace your Product (upgraded models may be available to you, in the sole discretion of BSH, for an additional charge). All removed parts and
components shall become the property of BSH at its sole option. All replaced and/or
repaired parts shall assume the identity of the original part for purposes of this warranty
and this warranty shall not be extended with respect to such parts. BSH’s sole liability and
responsibility hereunder is to repair manufacturer-defective Product only, using a BSHauthorized service provider during normal business hours. For safety and property damage
concerns, BSH highly recommends that you do not attempt to repair the Product yourself,
or use an unauthorized servicer; BSH will have no responsibility or liability for repairs or
work performed by a non-authorized servicer. If you choose to have someone other than an
authorized service provider work on your Product, THIS WARRANTY WILL AUTOMATICALLY
BECOME NULL AND VOID. Authorized service providers are those persons or companies
that have been specially trained on BSH products, and who possess, in the opinion of BSH,
a superior reputation for customer service and technical ability (note that they are independent entities and are not agents, partners, affiliates or representatives of BSH). Notwithstanding the foregoing, BSH will not incur any liability, or have responsibility, for the
Product if it is located in a remote area (more than 100 miles from an authorized service
provider) or is reasonably inaccessible, hazardous, threatening, or treacherous locale, surroundings, or environment; in any such event, if you request, BSH would still pay for labor
24
and parts and ship the parts to the nearest authorized service provider, but you would still
be fully liable and responsible for any travel time or other special charges by the service
company, assuming they agree to make the service call.
Out of Warranty Product: BSH is under no obligation, at law or otherwise, to provide
you with any concessions, including repairs, pro-rates, or Product replacement, once
this warranty has expired.
Warranty Exclusions: The warranty coverage described herein excludes all defects or damage that are not the direct fault of BSH, including without limitation, one or more of the following: (1) use of the Product in anything other than its normal, customary and intended
manner (including without limitation, any form of commercial use, use or storage of an
indoor product outdoors, use of the Product in conjunction with air or water-going vessels);
(2) any party’s willful misconduct, negligence, misuse, abuse, accidents, neglect, improper
operation, failure to maintain, improper or negligent installation, tampering, failure to follow
operating instructions, mishandling, unauthorized service (including self-performed “fixing”
or exploration of the appliance’s internal workings); (3) adjustment, alteration or modification of any kind; (4) a failure to comply with any applicable state, local, city, or county electrical, plumbing and/or building codes, regulations, or laws, including failure to install the
product in strict conformity with local fire and building codes and regulations; (5) ordinary
wear and tear, spills of food, liquid, grease accumulations, or other substances that accumulate on, in, or around the Product; and (6) any external, elemental and/or environmental
forces and factors, including without limitation, rain, wind, sand, floods, fires, mud slides,
freezing temperatures, excessive moisture or extended exposure to humidity, lightning,
power surges, structural failures surrounding the appliance, and acts of God. In no event
shall BSH have any liability or responsibility whatsoever for damage to surrounding property,
including cabinetry, floors, ceilings, and other structures or objects around the Product. Also
excluded from this warranty are scratches, nicks, minor dents, and cosmetic damages on
external surfaces and exposed parts; Products on which the serial numbers have been
altered, defaced, or removed; service visits to teach you how to use the Product, or visits
where there is nothing wrong with the Product; correction of installation problems (you are
solely responsible for any structure and setting for the Product, including all electrical,

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, THIS WARRANTY SETS OUT YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCT, WHETHER THE CLAIM ARISES IN CONTRACT OR TORT
(INCLUDING STRICT LIABILITY, OR NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE. THIS WARRANTY IS IN
LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. ANY WARRANTY
IMPLIED BY LAW, WHETHER FOR MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE EFFECTIVE ONLY FOR THE PERIOD THAT THIS EXPRESS
LIMITED WARRANTY IS EFFECTIVE. IN NO EVENT WILL THE MANUFACTURER BE LIABLE FOR
CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, “BUSINESS LOSS”, AND/OR PUNITIVE
DAMAGES, LOSSES, OR EXPENSES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION TIME AWAY FROM
WORK, HOTELS AND/OR RESTAURANT MEALS, REMODELLING EXPENSES IN EXCESS OF
DIRECT DAMAGES WHICH ARE DEFINITIVELY CAUSED EXCLUSIVELY BY BSH, OR OTHERWISE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, AND SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW
LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO
YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE
OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE. No attempt to alter, modify or amend
this warranty shall be effective unless authorized in writing by an officer of BSH Home Appliances Corporation.
