To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher.
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. If the hot water system has not
been used for such a period, before using the dishwasher turn on all hot water faucet s and let
the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated
hydrogen gas.
As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

PREPARATIONS FOR WASHING
Very little preparation is required before placing dishes,
pots, pans, etc. into the dishwasher. However, some
preparation is required:
•
Large solids, such as, hones, large seeds, shells, skins,
leafy vegetables, meat trimmings, etc. should be
removed either by scraping into a wastebasket, or into
your food disposer.
•
Large amounts of any type of leftover food should
also be scraped into a wastebasket or into your food
disposer.
•
Pots and pans that have burned-on food, the food is
blackened, should be pre-soaked and scoured. The
dishwasher cannot remove burned-on food.
•
Do not place the following items in the dishwasher:

of your set or test by washing one piece with each load for a month and
comparing this piece with the rest of the set to determine if there has been
any fading or discoloration.
CRYSTAL
USUALLY SAFE
Decorated crystal, those handpalnted, "on-glaze", or metal trimmed, may
discolor, fade, or spot. It is recommended that these be hand washed. Also,
fragile glassware is highly breakable, be sure to set the pieces so that they
do not topple during washing and so that they do not knock against other
)ieces.

LOADING THE TOP RACK
The top rack is designed for glasses, cups, plates, bowls
and saucers. Glasses, cups, plates, bowls, saucers and
small pots may be loaded in many different positions to
fit your needs. Figure 3, shows a typical mixed load for
an upper rack washing load.
running.
Large serving spoons and forks, spatulas, tongs and
large knives can be placed in top rack. Be sure to
space these large utensils so that water may flow
freely over them and so that water does not collect in
them; - - - serving spoons and ladles should be placed
facing downward so as not to collect water.
The dishwasher should be loaded so that water can
circulate freely and reach every part of every item that is
to be cleaned:
•
Cups, glasses and containers should be placed in upper
rack upside down so that water drains off of them and
does not collect in them. Tall narrow vessels, such as a
vase or tall glass, should be placed in the lower rack,
near the middle, for the best cleaning result.
At completion of loading of the upper rack check to
make sure that nothing is protruding through or
hanging beneath the bottom of the rack, which could
block the rotation of the spray ann.
Figure 3.
The Bosch dishwashers have a special feature
incorporated into the flip down cup shelves on the side
of the upper rack. The ends of these shelves are
specially formed to help maintain spacing between
stemmed glasses. When in the flipped down position
long stemmed glasses may be placed in the second
row from the edge and placed so their stems rest in the
"V" formed ends of the shelves. When the cup shelves
are in the up position long stemmed glasses may be
placed in the first row with their stems placed to rest
between the tooth like projections of the shelves.

LOADING THE LOWER RACK
•
Large and/or heavily soiled items should be placed in
the lower rack of the dishwasher. Heavily soiled pots
and pans should be placed face down. See figure 4.

Figure 6.
Extra Tall Items
Figure 5.
Silverware should be mixed when placed in the
silverware basket. The purpose of mixing the
silverware is to avoid having them nest together, for
example if spoons would be placed together they
could nest together so that water could not properly
circulate across them to clean the surfaces.
If you have extra tall items that cannot fit in the lower rack
without interfering with the upper spray arm or without
hitting the upper rack, the upper rack may be removed. A
special "Extra Tall Item Sprinkler" is provided with the
dishwasher to allow use of the dishwasher
with upper rack
removed. See figure 7.
Silverware should be placed in the silverware basket
with the handles down. with the exception of the
knives, which in order to avoid accidentally cutting
oneself, should be placed
with the handles
up.

minerals in hard water from forming a film or spots on
dishes. Hard water requires your detergent to work harder.

CARE and CLEANING
The Bosch dishwashers have a triple filter system
comprised of: a microfilter, a fine filter and a coarse filter.
The microfilter is self-cleaning, but the coarse filter and
fine filter will sometimes be found to have collected items,
from bones to toothpicks or straws that been left on the
plates or in the glasses. For this reason the following
maintenance should be observed:
Filters
The filters should be checked on a regular basis. To
remove the filters, turn the knuded ring handle of the
coarse/microfilter
'/4turn counter-clockwise,
see figure
14, and lift out the coarse/microfilter.
After removing
the coarse/microfilter
the fine filter should also be
inspected from time to time. Examine the filters. If
large solids, such as bones, or large seed(s) are present
remove the filters and dispose of the large solids by
emptying into a waste basket. If any other items have
been trapped by the filters, paper labels for examp]e.
these should also be removed while you have the filters out of the dishwasher. These smaller items can
usually be flushed out under running
trouble removing them by hand.
After cleaning, reinsert the filters in the dishwasher
making sure to press the filters firmly into positkm,
and then turning the knurled ring ¼ turn clockwise
until locked. Pull gently on the knurled ring to make
sure the filters are again locked in place.

I/8 turn. See figure 15.
After cleaning, reattach the wash arms by reversing
the action used to remove them.
Stainless
Steel Tank and Door
The outer edges of the inside door panel should be
cleaned on a regular basis to remove food particles
that can gather there from normal loading. If spots
begin to appear on the stainless steel door or tank
check to make sure that the RINSE AGENT
RESERVOIR has rinse agent in it. Also it is possible
that the wash arms are blocked, which prevented the
door as well as your dishware fl'om being properly
washed and rinsed. Check the wash arms to make sure
they are nlllving hotly. I1 not.clear the obstruction
away so Ihal the arms may rotate freely and then
rewash Ihc load of dishes in the dishwasher.
Spots thai appear on the stainless steel door may be
removed hy wiping gently with a sponge sprinkled
with a stainless steel cleaner, l)o not use metal
scouring pads to clean the stainless steel surlktccs
