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
dishwasher has been improperly grounded. Do not use the dishwasher covered in this manual unless you are certain the electrical
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.
6
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,
baked-on or starchy soils may require some pretreatment. Refer to the
Dishware Materials section for more information about dishware suitability.
Load only dishwasher safe items into the dishwasher. 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.
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. Load these items on the
left side of the dishwasher.
Unloading the Dishwasher
When unloading the dishwasher it is best to unload the bottom rack first.
Next, unload the silverware basket followed by the top rack.
NOTICE
To avoid dishwasher damage, do not load the dishwasher with paper
products, plastic bags, packing materials or anything other than normal,
dishwasher safe dishware and kitchenware.

Loading the Silverware Basket
Place knives and sharp utensils with their HANDLES UP and forks and
spoons with their handles down. If large or oddly-shaped items are loaded
in the silverware basket, be sure they do not nest together.
WARNING
The sharp points and edges of knives and other sharp utensils can cause
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.

into the dishwasher. Insert the Extra Tall Item Sprinkler
into the top rack spray outlet and turn the sprinkler
clockwise to lock into position. See Figure 6.
Note: Keep the vent on the tub’s right side clear by placing tall items such as plastic cutting boards and tall baking sheets on the bottom rack’s left side or center.
NOTICE
To avoid dishwasher damage, do not reinstall the top
rack without removing the Extra Tall Item Sprinkler.
Adding Detergent and Rinse Aid
Detergent
Use only detergent specifically designed for dishwashers. For best
results, use fresh powdered dishwashing detergent or detergent tabs.
NOTICE
To avoid dishwasher damage, do not use hand dishwashing 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 15ml of
detergent. Increase the amount if necessary to the least amount required to
get your kitchenware clean.
Use the measuring lines in the detergent dispenser cup as a guide to measure the amount of detergent recommended in Table 1.
11
Adding Detergent
•
1 tablespoon (15ml) will clean most loads.
•
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 8.
•
Slide door closed and press down firmly
until it clicks.

Rinse Aid
Figure 9
Figure 10
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.
Adding Rinse Aid
1
Add liquid rinse aid to the dispenser until it
is full (see Figure 10).
2
Close the lid. Lid must be fully closed until it clicks in order to seal.
3
Wipe up any excess rinse aid that may have puddled when the dispenser reservoir is full.
The indicator light will go out a few moments after the dishwasher door is shut.
See next page for instruction on how to adjust the amount of rinse aid dispensed.
12
Setting the amount of rinse aid used
The amount of rinse aid dispensed can be set from “r:00” to “r:06”.
1
Press the [On/Off] button.
2
Hold down the “A” button (see page 16) and press [Start] until the
display indicates “d:00”. Release both buttons.
3
Press the “A” button until the display shows “r:05”.
4
Press the “C” button to select the desired setting.
“r:04” = medium/high setting
“r:00” = dispenser is OFF
“r:05” = high setting
“r:01” = lowest setting
“r:02” = low setting
“r:06” = highest setting
“r:03” = medium setting
5
Press [Start] to save the setting.
Note: Using rinse aid and setting the dispenser to “r:00” may result in longer
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.
Eco*: Best for delicate dishes and glasses, the Eco cycle lowers temperature
and cycle length to decrease energy usage.
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. For models with a 3rd rack, the test was conducted
with the upper rack in the middle position.
Express: Cleans lightly soiled dishes and reduces overall wash time. Use
this cycle to clean glasses and dessert dishware that may need to be
reused at the same event.
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.
*model dependent
13
Wash Cycle Options
Delay: 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.
Half Load*: Can reduce water consumption when washing small, lightly
soiled loads that fill approximately half of the dishwasher’s capacity.
Delicate: 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: 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 Wash 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.
ExtraShine™: 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
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.
Note: Only sanitizing cycles have been designed to meet the requirements
of 6 for soil removal and sanitization efficacy. There is no intention, either
directly or indirectly, to imply that all cycles have passed sanitization performance tests.

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 11
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 Fig.
11-12 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 12
Figure 13
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 13.
19
Waste water pump
Large food remnants in the rinsing water not
retained by the filters may block the waste
water pump.
In this case:
• Disconnect the appliance from the power supply.
• Remove the filters (see Figures 11-12).
• Scoop out standing water - use a sponge if
necessary.
• Using a spoon, pry off the pump cover (see Figure 14-15) until it clicks, then grip the cover
and pull upward until it resists and then pull
forward.
• Check inner compartment and remove any
foreign objects.
• Place cover in the original position, press
down and engage.
• Reinstall filters.

Home Appliances Corporation (BSH) in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty
applies only to Bosch® dishwashers (“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.

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

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
