IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
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:
1. Bosch dishwashers are provided with two manuals; one, Installation Instruction
Manual and one, Use and Care Manual. Read all instructions and understand
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 knives and other sharp utensils with handles up to reduce the risk of
cut-type injuries.
5. Do not wash plastic items unless marked “dishwasher safe” or the equivalent. For
plastic items not so marked, check the manufacturer’s recommendations.
6. Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use.
7. Do not operate your dishwasher unless all the enclosure panels are properly in
place.
8. Do not tamper with controls.
9. Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish rack of the dishwasher.
10.To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher.
11.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.
12.Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher
from service or discarding.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS !
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be connected to a grounded 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.
WARNING — This dishwasher must be grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code
and/or local codes. Make sure this dishwasher has been properly grounded and installed by a
qualified installer before using.

ADDING DETERGENT
Selecting the Right Detergent
Use only dishwashing detergent in your Bosch dishwasher. It is highly recommended to use powder
detergent that DOES NOT contain a drying agent
additive. Use of other types of detergents may result in excessive suds. Concentrated detergents
usually call for lower usage than standard detergents.
Please refer to Table 2 for recommended detergent
usage.
For the best washing results it is important to use
the correct type and
amount of detergent and
rinse agent.
Detergent Dispenser Cover
Filling the
Detergent Dispenser
1. Locate the detergent dispenser on the inside
door of the dishwasher (see Figure 1).
2. Open the detergent dispenser cover by pushing the release tab.
3. Fill dispenser. Refer to Table 2 to determine the
amount of detergent necessary for your water
and wash type. Use the measurement lines inside the detergent dispenser as a fill guide.
4. Close dispenser. With fingers on arrow, slide
cover over the detergent chamber and press
down on the arrow until it clicks shut.
The detergent will be dispensed automatically during
the wash portion of the cycle.

Dispenser Regulator
The rinse agent reservoir of the Bosch dishwasher is
provided with a regulator calibrated from 1 to 6. (See
Figure 21.) This regulator controls the amount of
rinse agent dispensed. The dishwasher leaves the
factory preset to 4. However,
• if you see streaks, you should turn the
regulator to a lower number.
Figure 22
Rinse agent is available in liquid or solid form. Only use the
liquid type of rinse agent in
the Bosch dishwasher.
• if you see water spots, you should turn
the regulator to a higher number.
Rinse Agent Indicator Light
Some models are equipped with an additional rinse
aid indicator light on the control panel. When the
rinse agent dispenser is empty, the indicator light will
glow and the level indicator will show a silver background with black lines.
After filling the rinse agent dispenser, close the door
and wait a few minutes for the indicator light to register.

Condensation Drying
The combination of a high final rinse temperature, the tub’s cool stainless steel interior and
the sheeting action of a Rinse Agent result in
effective and efficient drying. The closed condensation drying feature is hygienic, and saves
energy and money.

Unloading
When unloading the dishwasher always unload the
lower rack first and then unload the upper rack. This
will minimize the chance of water drops from the
upper rack falling on the dishes in the lower rack.
The silverware basket(s) of the Bosch dishwasher
can be removed for easy unloading.
The dishware tends to get hot immediately following
a completed cycle. If the door is opened slightly for
a few minutes before unloading, the dishes will cool
more quickly.

The Top Rack Only™ Cycle
Some BOSCH models have a Top Rack Only cycle
that saves energy and water when you have only a
small load of dishes. Also, you’ll use less detergent
for the Top Rack Only cycle. The washing time,
however, is not reduced.
The upper rack of the dishwasher has been designed
with flexibility in mind. You can load glasses, cups,
plates, bowls and small pots in many different positions to fit your needs. Figure 34 shows a typical
mixed load placed correctly in the upper rack for the
Top Rack Only cycle.

CARE AND CLEANING
General Maintenance
Certain areas of your Bosch Dishwasher require
periodic owner inspection. The following maintenance tasks can be performed to help assure top
Triple Filter System
performance:
• Check the Large Object Trap *
• Check the Wash Arms
• Clean Stainless Steel Inner Door
• Clean Door Panel
(Stainless Steel or Colored)
• Clean the Door Gasket
1. Large Object Trap
2. Micro Filter
3. Fine Filter
These tasks are described in subsequent sections.
Figure 38
Check Large Object Trap:
The filter system is self-cleaning. The purpose
of the Large Object Trap is to help prevent undesirable objects such as bones, glass, straws
and toothpicks from damaging the pump system. Items such as these should be removed
from the Large Object Trap.
To Remove the Large Object Trap:
1. Turn the ring handle (as shown in Figure 38)
1/4 turn counter-clockwise and lift out.
* Bosch dishwashers have a triple filter system
composed of a Microfilter, a Fine Filter and a
Large Object Trap.
Turn left to loosen (counter-clockwise)
and right to tighten (clock-wise).
2. Lift out the large object trap for inspection.
3. If large solids, such as bones, large seed(s), or
paper labels are present, remove them by hand.
The Large Object Trap can also be flushed out
by holding it under running water.
To Re-insert the Large Object
Trap in the Dishwasher:
1. Press the filters firmly into position.
Figure 39
2. Turn 1/4 turn clockwise until locked.
3. Pull gently to ensure that it is locked
in place.
24 - ENGLISH
www.boschappliances.com
CARE AND CLEANING
Check Wash Arms
The wash arms should be checked periodically to
ensure that the spray orifices are clear and unobstructed. If the wash arms require cleaning they
are easy to remove and replace:
1. The lower wash arm simply snaps into
place. Pull gently upwards to remove it.
2. The upper wash arm is held in position
by a locking nut. Turn the locking ring
approximately 1/8 turn clockwise to release the arm. See Figure 40
Figure 40
3. After cleaning, reinstall the wash arms.
For SHU 6800 Models
Only:
Clean Stainless Steel Tank
and Inner Door
Clean the outer edges of the inside door panel
regularly to remove food particles that can gather
there from normal loading. If spots begin to appear on the stainless steel tank or inner door, check
to make sure that the rinse agent reservoir is full.
Normally, the bottom door
seal should not be cleaned. If
necessary, wipe only with a
dry clean cloth.
Clean Outer Door
Colored Doors
Use only soft cloth that is lightly dampened with
soapy water. Do not use paper towels or an abrasive cloth.
Stainless Steel Doors:
Use a soft cloth with a non-abrasive stainless steel
cleaner. For best results, apply stainless steel
cleaner directly to the cloth, then wipe the surface. 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.
Figure 41
Clean Door Gasket
Clean the door gasket regularly to remove food
particles that can gather from normal loading. If
necessary clean the door gasket using a damp
cloth.

BOSCH DISHWASHER FEATURES DESCRIPTIONS
Bosch AVS II™ Silence Rating: A two-pump motor system, suspension motor,and triple
insulation make Bosch the quietest dishwashers in North America.
Bosch SoundSeal™: An added measure of insulation on the SHU 6800 series in the form of a
sound tight seal eliminating noise typically emitted from the toe-kick area.
Bosch Suspension Motor™: By suspending the motor in air, any vibration that may be
caused is eliminated.
Condensation Drying: The combination of a high final rinse temperature, the tub’s cool
stainless steel interior, and the sheeting action of a Rinse Agent result in effective and efficient
drying. The closed condensation drying feature is hygienic, and saves energy and money.
Cycle Completion Signal: An optional beeper which lets you know when the cycle is
complete.
Delicate/Economy or “Delicate Wash” Cycle: Saves water and energy, while removing
loosely attached food from delicate dishware.
Delay Start: Delay the dishwasher’s start for up to nine hours.
Digital Countdown Display: Lets you know exactly when the cycle will be complete.
Electronic Controls: Easy to use push button controls with programs
Bosch Flow-Through Heater™: Water passes through a heating chamber where it is
efficiently heated to temperatures up to 161°F.
Four-level Wash: Multiple spraying levels provide optimal disbursement of fresh water.
Height-Adjustable Upper Rack: Raise or lower the top rack to fit items up to 14” tall in the
bottom rack, or up to 10” tall in the top rack.
LED Sequence Indicator: Indicates the current point in the wash cycle, so you’ll know if it’s
OK to add a last-minute dish.
Exceptionally Low Water Usage: Bosch dishwashers use very little water — as low as 2.5
gallons in the Delicate/Economy cycle.
Flip Tines: Fold-down tines in the bottom rack accommodate even large cookware.
Nylon Racks: Eliminate cuts and nicks with nylon-coated racks featuring a five-year warranty.
Power Scrub Plus Cycle: For heavy loads with stuck-on food, this powerful cycle features an
extra 125° pre-wash to soak food loose.
Quick Wash Cycle: Cleans lightly soiled dishes in a short 29-minute cycle. Good for glassware, coffee cups, etc.
“Refill Rinse Agent” Light: Lets you know when you need to add more rinse agent.
Regular Wash Cycle: Good for everyday loads with loosely attached food.
Rinse & Hold Cycle: If you don’t want to wash right away, use this cycle to rinse the
dishware, then hold it until you have a full load.
Bosch Sensotronic™: Proven scanning technology checks the condition of the water, then
automatically decides whether a second fresh-water fill is necessary.
Scrub Wash Cycle: For stuck-on foods that don’t require soaking, this powerful cycle uses
less water than the Power Scrub Plus Cycle.
Stainless Steel Bosch Tall Tub™: Provides the assurance of a lifetime warranty against
rust-through with a hygienic interior surface.
Bosch Top Rack Only ™ Wash: When you don’t have a full load of dishes to wash, this
feature washes just those on the top rack, saving water.
Triple Filter System: Three built-in filters ensure the distribution of clean water throughout
the wash cycle, and an added safety feature preventing any foreign materials from clogging
the main pump or drain pump.
OptiMISER™ Cycle: This cycle is used in conjunction with another program cycle to cut down
the program wash time.
RackMatic™: To adjust the height of the top rack, simply push the rackmatik side tabs inward
to adjust the rack up or down.
