Important Safety Instructions - Save This Information
NOTICE
Never use steam cleaning products to clean your dishwasher. The manufacturer will not be liable for possible damages or consequences.
Never use harsh chemicals to clean your dishwasher. Some chloride-containing cleaning products can damage your dishwasher
and may present health hazards!
It is highly recommended for the end use consumer 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 speak with your installer for more
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 on 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 if you are not certain the electrical
supply has been correctly installed or the dishwasher has been properly grounded.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or serious injury, observe
the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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.
Use this dishwasher only for its intended function, which is
the washing of household dishware and kitchenware.
This dishwasher is provided with Installation Instructions
and this Use and Care Manual. Read and understand all
instructions before using the dishwasher.
Use only detergents or rinsing agents recommended for use in
a dishwasher, and keep them out of the reach of children.
When loading items to be washed:
- Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage
the door seal.
- Load knives and other sharp utensilswith 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.
•
•
•

•
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish racks of the
dishwasher.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in

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.
Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding.
To avoid floor damage and possible mold growth, do not allow
wet areas to remain around or under the dishwasher.
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.
When you dispose your old appliance make sure you remove
the door or disable the latch.

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.
Contact the item’s manufacturer if you are unsure about the item’s dishwasher suitability.
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 by using a soap-filled steel
wool pad.
China, Crystal, Stoneware: Some hand-painted pieces may discolor, fade, or spot. Handwash these pieces. Position fragile glassware so that it will not topple over or contact other
pieces during the wash cycle.
Glass: Milk glass may yellow.
Non-Stick Coatings: Apply a light coating of vegetable oil to non-stick surfaces after
drying.
Plastics: Make sure the piece is dishwasher safe.
Stainless Steel, Sterling Silver, and Silver Plate: Place these pieces so that they do not
contact dissimilar metals.
Not Recommended
Acrylic: Crazing (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: Pewter will tarnish. Hand-wash and dry immediately.
Tin: Tin will rust. Hand-wash and dry immediately.
Wood: Wooden bowls, wooden utensils, and wood-handled utensils can crack, warp, and
lose their finish.
Preparing and Loading the Dishware
Figure 1
10 place setting top rack
Dishware Preparation
Do not pre-wash items having loosely-attached soiling. Remove large food particles, bones,
seeds, toothpicks, and excessive grease. Items having burned-on, baked-on or starchy soils
may require pre-treatment.
Loading the Dishwasher
Check the Materials section of this manual if you are unsure about an item’s dishwasher
suitability.
Load only dishwasher-safe items into the dishwasher. Load dishes in the dishwasher racks so
that the insides of bowls, pots, and pans are face downwards. Avoid nesting and contact points
between dishes. Separate items of dissimilar metals.
Loading the Top Rack
Figures 1 and 2 show typical 10 and 12 place load patterns for the top rack.
NOTE: Make sure items do not protrude through the bottom of the racks and block the spray
arms.
NOTICE
To avoid dishwasher damage, do not load the dishwasher with objects such as paper
products, plastic bags, packing materials, or anything other than normal dishware and
kitchenware.

Do not load the dishwasher with anything other than dishwasher-safe dishware and
kitchenware.
Top Rack Accessories
Top Rack Flip Tines
Flip Tines fold down to make loading the racks easier in some instances. Grasp the tines,
release from notch, and fold the tines downward. When the top rack is loaded, push it into
the dishwasher.
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 will connect to the water supply in the rear of the tub.
Do not push the top rack with the door.
Rack Height Adjustment (select models)
Figure 4
12 place setting bottom rack
Remove the empty rack by pulling it out of the dishwasher to the point that it can be lifted
upward, as shown in Figure 5. Pull the rack outward and up until the rollers are completely
free of the roller guides. Re-insert the rack with the other set of rollers on the roller guides,
as shown in Figure 6.
Loading the Bottom Rack
Place large items in the bottom rack. Load pots, pans and bowls upside-down. Figures 3 and
4 show typical mixed loads for the bottom rack. Do not block the vent at left side of tub (see
Figure 7)
Bottom Rack Flip Tines
Flip Tines fold down to make loading the racks easier in some instances. Grasp the tines and
fold them downward.
Figure 5
Figure 6
Figure 7
Do not block vent.

Loading the Silverware Basket
NOTE: The silverware basket tops can be folded up to accommodate large or oddly-shaped items.
With the silverware basket tops down, load the silverware basket following the patterns suggested in Figures 8 (for standard basket) and
9 (for flexible basket). Place knives with their handles up, and forks and spoons with their handles down.
If large or oddly-shaped items are to be loaded into the silverware basket with the tops up, load the items so that they do not nest together.
Load knives and sharp utensils with their handles up.
CAUTION
The sharp points and edges of knives and other sharp utensils can cause serious injuries. Load knives and other sharp utensils with
sharp points and edges down. Do not allow children to handle or play near knives and sharp utensils.
The Standard Silverware Basket
This basket fits in the front-middle of the lower rack.
The Flexible Silverware Basket
This basket is designed for maximum versatility. The 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.
To split the Flexible Silverware Basket:
1. Grasp the basket as shown in Figure 10A, and slide the two halves in opposite directions, as shown in Figure 10A.
2. Pull the two halves apart, as shown in Figure 10B.
Some suggestions for placing the two halves in the lower rack are shown in Figure 11.

Use only detergent specifically designed for dishwashers. For best results, use fresh powdered
dishwashing detergent.
NOTICE
To avoid dishwasher damage, do not use hand dishwashing products in your dishwasher.
This dishwasher uses less water so you need to use less detergent. 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 cup.

Clean the Exterior Door Panel
Colored Doors
Use only a soft cloth that is lightly dampened with soapy water.
Stainless Steel Doors
Use a soft cloth with a non-abrasive cleaner (preferably a liquid
spray) made for cleaning stainless steel. For the best results, apply
the stainless steel cleaner to the cloth, then wipe the surface.
Clean the Door Gasket and Door Seal
Regularly clean the door gasket with a damp cloth to remove food
particles and other debris. Also clean the door seal, located inside
the dishwasher at the bottom of the door.
Wash Cycle Information
NOTE: To save energy, this dishwasher has a “Smart Control” that
automatically adjusts the cycle based on soil loads and incoming
water temperature. The “Smart Control” makes decisions that can
cause the cycle time and water usage to adjust intermittently. The
cycle times listed in the Use and Care manual are based on normal
soil loads and 120°F incoming water and will vary based on your
actual conditions.
See the Cycles Chart to determine the cycles available for your specific
model.
NOTE: On select models, the Half Load feature will reduce the water
consumption by approximately 30 percent in the Power Scrub Plus,
Regular, and Auto Wash cycles. The ECO option may be selected for the
Power Scrub Plus, Auto, Regular and Delicate cycles on select models.
This reduces energy consumption approximately 10% due to lower
main wash and final rinse temperatures, but extends cycle length 5-10
minutes to maintain drying performance and the water usage will be
unmodified in comparison to the normal program cycles.
The NSF Symbol
A dishwasher or a dishwasher cycle that has the NSF symbol has been
certified by the NSF International to meet very strict requirements
of wash time and water temperature to ensure dishware and
kitchenware sanitization. These requirements are explained in the
document NSF/ANSI 184, Residential Dishwashers. More information
on NSF Certification is available at the NSF website, http://www.
nsfconsumer.org/home/appliances.asp.
Your dishwasher is NSF certified. The dishwasher cycles that are
NSF certified are shown in the following chart. When these cycles
are complete, the “Sanitized” indicator on your dishwasher control
panel will illuminate.
NOTE: If your household water supply is too hot, your dishwasher’s
heating time may be reduced and the “Sanitized” light or symbol may
not illuminate. Your Dishwasher Installation Manual has information on
the recommended temperature for your household hot water supply.

Statement of Limited Product Warranty
Bosch Dishwashers
What this Warranty Covers & Who it Applies to: The limited warranty
provided BSH Home Appliances (“Bosch”) 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.
•
Please make sure to return your registration card; while not necessary
to effectuate warranty coverage, it is the best way for Bosch to
notify you in the unlikely event of a safety notice or product recall.
How Long the Warranty Lasts: Bosch warrants that the Product is
free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of three
hundred sixty five (365) days (i.e., 1 year) 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: Bosch also provides these additional limited
warranties:
•
•
•
•
2 Year Limited Warranty: Bosch will repair or replace any
component that proves to be defective in materials or workmanship
(excludes labor charges).
5 Year Limited Warranty on Electronics: Bosch will repair or
replace any Bosch 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: Bosch 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: Bosch
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). Bosch
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,
Bosch 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 Bosch will replace your Product (upgraded
models may be available to you, in Bosch’s sole discretion, for an additional
charge). All removed parts and components shall become the property
of Bosch 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. Bosch’s sole
liability and responsibility hereunder is to repair manufacturer-defective
Product only, using a Bosch-authorized service provider during normal
business hours. For safety and property damage concerns, Bosch highly
recommends that you do not attempt to repair the Product yourself, or
use an un-authorized servicer; Bosch 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 Bosch products, and who possess, in Bosch’s opinion,
a superior reputation for customer service and technical ability (note that
they are independent entities and are not agents, partners, affiliates or
representatives of Bosch). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bosch 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, Bosch would still pay for labor 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: Bosch 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 Bosch, 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 Bosch 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
