IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING -- When using your dishwasher, basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury to persons, including the following:
I. Bosch dishwashers are provided with two manuals; one, Installation Instruction Manual and
one, Care and Use Manual. Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
2. Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.
3. Use only detergents or wetting agents recommended for use in a dishwasher and keep them out
of the reach of children.
4. When loading items to be washed:
a. Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal,
and

b. Load sharp knives with the handle up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.
Do not wash plastic items unless marked "dishwasher safe" or the equivalent. For plastic items
not so marked, check the manufacturer's recommendations.
Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use.
Do not operate your dishwasher unless all the enclosure panels are properly in place.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish rack of the dishwasher.
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 faucets 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.
Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service
or discarding.
WARNING -- This dishwasher must be grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code
and/or local codes. These must be carefully followed in all cases. See Installation Instructions provided with this dishwasher for complete installation information. Make sure this dishwasher has
been properly grounded and installed by a qualified installer before using.

PREPARATIONS FOR WASHING
Very little preparation is requiredbefore placing dishes,
pots, pans, etc. into the dishwasher, However, some
preparation is required:
•
Large solids, such as, bones, 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:
> toothpicks
> small bones and bone slivers
> paper products such as paper plates and paper
napkins
> plastic bags or plastic packaging material.
In general, try to remove food scraps and place the items
to be washed in the dishwasher before the food has had a
chance to dry-on. Dried-on food is more difficult to
remove and you may find that the DELICATE/ECONOMY
or lighter washing cycles will not provide a satisfactory
result when food has dried on.
If there will be an extended period of time before the
dishwasher will be run it is recommended
that the RINSE
& HOLD cycle be used.
Other than the above, no special preparation or pre-rinsing
is required for dishes, pots and pans or utensils with
normal amounts of food soil.

TOP RACK ONLY TM WASHING
(SHU & SHI 6800 Series Only)
The SHU and SH1 6800 series dishwashers have a special
energy saving feature that allows them to wash the Top
Rack OnlyTM. It is recommended, to save energy and
water, that anytime you only have a small number of
dishes to wash, you use this feature. Use a reduced
amount of detergent as compared to a full load when
using this feature.
NOTE:
The program time is not reduced
RACK ONLY TM is used.

LOADING THE TOP RACK
Top Rack Washing (Small Wash Load)
The upper rack of the dishwasher has been designed with
flexibility in mind. Glasses, cups, plates, bowls 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.
Silverware
silverware
should be mixed when placed in the
basket to avoid having them nest together.
IMPORTANT: Always, however, place pointed
items in the silverware basket pointing down.
and sharp
Regular Wash Load
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 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.
•
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.
•
China, crystal and other delicate items must be placed
so that they do not touch each other during dishwasher
operation. Chipping or other damage may occur.
•
The upper silverware basket may be removed for
additional space whcn not using TOP RACK ONLY IM
Icaturc.
Sec Figure 4.
Figure 4.
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 arm.

•
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.

Large and/or heavily
RACK
soiled items should be placed in
the lower rack of the dishwasher. Heavily soiled pots
and pans should be placed face down.
If more space is needed for pots and pans the rear two
sets of tines can be folded to the down position, on all
models, or the rear three sets of tines, on some models.
Figure 6 shows lower basket with rear three sets of
tines in the down position to accommodate
large pots.
Silverware should be mixed when placed in the
silverware basket. The purpose of mixing the
silverware is to avoid having them nest together, tor
example if spoons would be placed together they
could nest together so that water could not properly
circulate across them to clean the surt_tces.
Figure 7.
If you do inadvertently load the silverware basket with the
knife blades up it is recommended,
to avoid cutting
yourself when unloading, that you remove the silverware
basket from the dishwasher and tip the contents out onto
a cutting board.
•
The Bosch dishwashers also have a pair of flip down
shelves at the back of the lower rack. These shelves
may be flipped down to hold extra large utensils, such
as serving spoons, or long knives. They also may be
used as additional cup shelves. See Figures 5 and 7.
RACK HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
The upper rack height of the Bosch dishwashers, except
the SHU 5302 and SHU 5306 models, is adjustable. There
are two positions, see figure 8:
I. The upper position is used to provide more room for
items to be placed in the lower rack.
2. The lower position is used to provide more room for
items to be placed in the upper rack.
2.
Place the "Extra Tall Item Spdnlder" over the upper
rack spray outlet at the back of the dishwasher tub
(refer to figure 9) and turn clockwise to lock sprinkler
head in place.
Figure 9.
Figure 8.
Extra tall items may now be placed in lower rack for
washing, as shown in figure 10. To remove "Extra Tall
Item Sprinkler", to again allow use of upper rack, reverse
actions used to insert it.
To reposition rack:
a. First empty upper rack and pull rack partially out to
point where rack can be lifted upward as shown in
upper illustration of Figure 8.
b. Pull the rack forward and then up until rollers are
completely free of channels.
c. Reinsert the rack with the other set of rollers on the
channel.
Extra Tall Items
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 9.
To allow washing of extra tall items:
1. With upper rack empty, remove it from the dishwasher
by pulling the rack partially out to the point where
rack can be lifted upward and out to disengage the
wheels ti'om the side rails.
Figure 10.
USING THE DISPENSERS
For the best washing result it is important
amount of detergent and rinse agent•
DETERGENT
to use the correct
USE
With hard water, or with the POWER SCRUB PLUS
cycle, it is recommended that the detergent dispenser
be completely filled, roughly 9 teaspoons. If additional
detergent is required it can be placed on the inside of
the door, just below the dispenser.
Use only fresh dishwashing
detergent ( powder is recommended) manufactured
specifically for dishwasher
use. Use
of other types of detergents will result in excessive suds.
Be sure to check the phosphate content of the detergent m
be used. Phosphate helps prevent the minerals in hard
water from forming a film or spots on dishes. Hard water
requires your detergent to work harder• In hard water areas
you will find that detergents with high phosphate levels
will provide a better result• If the phosphate level is low,
below 8.7%, you may have to use extra detergent in hard
water areas.
Release
Figure 12.
With soft water the amount of detergent may be
reduced. Also, for the DELICATE/ECONOMY
or
QUICK WASH cycles the amount of detergent may
be reduced. For the DELICATE/ECONOMY
or
QUICK WASH cycles it is recommended
that only
the chamber marked "15" be filled with detergent;
roughly 3 teaspoons of detergent.
!
Figure
If you have water of medium or higher hardness and the
dishes do not come clean the cause, in the majority of
cases, is the use of too little detergent rather than too
much. If you have very soft water, or chemically treated
soft water special care should be taken to use the minimum
amount of detergent. For these situations a high quality,
low phosphate detergent is recommended.
Too much
detergent combined with soft water may cause etching of
glassware.
11.
Be sure to follow the dishwasher detergent manufacturer's
instructions when using the detergents. Concentrated
detergents usually call for lower usage than do standard
detergents.
Note:
Do not use detergent when the RINSE & HOLD
cycle has been selected.
After filling the detergent

RINSE AGENT DISPENSER
Rinse agent, or a rinse aid, is used to diminish water
spotting and to provide optimum drying results. It is
recommended that a rinse agent be used at all times with
the Bosch dishwasher. In a Bosch dishwasher the rinse
indicator
agent not only serves to rinse the dishware, but also serves
to rinse the tank and inner door of the dishwasher. The
tank and inner door will begin to take on a dull,
unpolished look, if rinse agent is not used.
The rinse agent dispenser
is located
next to the detergent
dispenser, See figure 13. Rinse agent is available in liquid
or solid form. Do not use the solid type of rinse agent in
the Bosch dishwasher.
To fill the rinse agent reservoir (refer to Figure 14):
•
Open the dishwasher door fully.
•
Open the cover of the rinse agent dispenser.
•
Add rinse agen! to the reservoir until the clear level
indicator turns completely dark. The reservoir is full

Figure 14.
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:
Figure 17.
> The lower wash arm simply snaps into place and
can be removed by pulling upwards.
> The upper wash arm is held in position by a locking
ring that can be released by turning it approximately
1/8 turn. See figure 17.
Figure 16.
After cleaning, reattach the wash arms by reversing
the action used to remove them.
Filters
The filters should be checked
on a regular
basis. To
remove the filters, turn the knurled ring handle of the
coarse/microfilter
¼ turn counter-clockwise,
see figure
16, and lift out the coarse/microfilter.
After removing
the coarse/microfilter
the fine filter can also be lifted
out for inspection.
such as bones, or
filters and dispose
a waste basket. If
Examine the filters. If large solids,
large seed(s) are present remove the
of the large solids by emptying into
any other items have been trapped
by the filters, paper labels for example, these should
also be removed while you have the filters out of the
dishwasher. These smaller items can usually be flushed
out under running water if you have trouble removing
them by hand.
After cleaning, reinsert the filters in the dishwasher
making sure to press the filters firmly into position,
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.
Other areas requiring periodic maintenance
are the wash
arms and the stainless steel tank and inner door and door
gasket:
Wash arms
The wash arms shcmld be checked on a regular basis
to assure that the spray orifices arc clear and
unobstructed.
If the wash arms require cleaning they
arc easily removable:
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 from being properly
washed and rinsed. Check the wash arms to make sure
they are moving freely. If not, clear the obstruction
away so that the arms may rotate freely and then
rewash the load of dishes in the dishwasher.
Spots that appear on the stainless steel door may be
removed by wiping gently with a sponge sprinkled
with a stainless steel cleaner. Do not use metal
scouring pads to clean the stainless steel surfaces
as these can scratch the surface and leave metal
fragments
that can rust.
Door Gasket
The door gasket should be cleaned on a regular basis
to remove food particles that can gather from normal
loading. If necessary clean the door gasket using a
damp cloth.
