9 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
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.
9 WARNING
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK!
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 if you are in doubt
whether the appliance is
properly grounded.
Safe Operation
Use this dishwasher only for its
intended function, which is the
washing of household dishware and
kitchenware rated as dishwasher
safe.
Use only detergents or rinsing agents
recommended for use in a
dishwasher, and keep them out of
the reach of children.
9 CAUTION
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.
Do not abuse, sit or stand on the
door or dish racks of the dishwasher.
9 WARNING
RISK OF INJURY!
To avoid risk of injury, always
use caution when opening the
door during or following a wash
cycle as hot water or steam
may escape. Do not fully open
the door until water noises have
stopped and steam has
subsided.
NSF/ANSI 184 Certified residential
dishwashers are not intended for
licensed food establishments.

9 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Child Safety
To reduce risk of injury, do not allow
children to play in or on the
dishwasher.
When children become old enough
to operate the appliance, it is the
responsibility of the parents/legal
guardians to ensure the children are
instructed in safe practices by

Proper Care and Maintenance
9 WARNING
RISK OF EXPLOSION!
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 dishwasher door to the
washing compartment when
removing an old dishwasher for
service or discarding.
To avoid floor damage and possible
mold growth, do not allow wet areas
to remain around or under the
dishwasher.
To avoid dishwasher damage, do not
allow water to remain in your
dishwasher systems through
extended periods of freezing
8
temperatures. Freezing temperatures
can damage the water fill valve and
potentially other components of your
dishwasher.
NOTICE
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.

NOTICE
To avoid dishwasher damage:
■
Do not use hand dishwashing
products in your dishwasher.
■
Do not use too much detergent if
your water is soft. Using too much
detergent with soft water may
cause etching in glassware and
fine china.
This dishwasher uses less water than
most, therefore, less detergent is
required. With soft water,
1 tablespoon (15 ml) of detergent
will clean most loads. The detergent
dispenser cup has lines that measure
detergent to 1 tablespoon (15 ml)
and 1.75 tablespoons (25 ml).
3 tablespoons (45 ml) of detergent
will completely fill the detergent
dispenser.
Note: If you do not know the
hardness of your water supply, use
15 ml 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 the following table.

sno i t pO e l cyC rehsawhs iD
Allows you to delay the start time of
your dishwasher up to 24 hours.
Half Load
Can reduce water consumption when
washing small, lightly soiled loads
that fill approximately half of the
dishwasher’s capacity.
Delicate
This option’s reduced time and
temperature are best for lightly soiled
items with easy to remove food soils.
The option also reduces the
likelihood of cloudy glasses. Rinse
aid is recommended for the high
gloss drying function (even when
using combination detergents).
Heavy
Auto
Sanitize
Increases the temperatures and
retains them for an extra long time to
obtain a defined disinfecting
performance. Continuous use of this
function increases the hygiene status.
This additional option is ideal for
cleaning items such as chopping
boards and baby bottles.
Using the Sanitize option may also
improve drying. The cycle time and
energy usage may be increased.
Extra Dry
Used in combination with a wash
cycle (except Rinse), the Extra Dry
option raises the temperature and
extends the drying time to further
enhance drying results and provide a
brilliant shine. The energy usage may
be increased.
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 (49° C) water
supply. If your household water
supply is different than 120°F
(49° C), your dishwasher’s cycle
times may be impacted.

AquaSensor
The AquaSensor is an optical
measuring device which measures
the cleanliness of the rinse water.
The AquaSensor is used according
to the wash cycle. If the AquaSensor
is active, “clean” rinse water can be
transferred to the next rinse and
water consumption can be reduced
by 0.8–1-5 gal (3–6 liters). If the
rinse water is not yet clear, the water
is drained and is replaced with fresh
water. In the automatic wash cycles
the temperature and running time
can also be adjusted to the degree of
soiling.

Filters
The Bosch® filter system 1b is
designed to prevent the need to
pre-rinse normally attached food soils
from your dishes. Simply scrape
leftover food soils off of dishware
before loading. This process will
conserve time, water and the energy
require to heat your household water
supply.
Your dishwasher filter system is
designed to filter 100% of the water
entering the spray arms to provide a
continuous supply of clean water to
remove food soils from your
dishware.

directs particles toward the micro
filter.
Micro Filter
Directs the smallest of particles
to the household plumbing drain.
Cleaning intervals
The filter system 1b is designed to
minimize maintenance while
providing premium cleaning
performance and minimum energy
consumption.
Depending on use habits and water
hardness, the filter system will require
some maintenance to sustain
premium cleaning performance.
Your filter system may need to be
cleaned when:
■
You notice food soils remaining
on the filter system or objects
trapped in the Large Object Trap.
■
A drop in cleaning performance
or a gritty film forms on the
dishware.
When washing normally attached
food soils that have been scraped
before loading, in a household that
runs the dishwasher every other day,
your filter should be cleaned:
Cleaning interval
Use this setting,
3-6 times a year
if you rinse before
loading
4-12 times a year
if you only scrape
before loading
12 times a year
if you have hard water
Note: Clean the filter after washing
loads with large amounts of food
soils or loads with a heavy starch
content, like potatoes and pasta, to
maintain optimal performance.

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 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 shall not be stalled,
tolled, extended, or suspended, for
any reason whatsoever.
38
This Product is also warranted to be
free from cosmetic defects in
material and workmanship (such as
scratches of stainless steel,
paint/porcelain blemishes, chip,
dents, or other damage to the finish
of the Product), for a period of thirty
(30) days from the date of purchase
or closing date for new construction.
This cosmetic warranty excludes
slight color variations due to inherent
differences in painted and porcelain
parts, as well as differences caused
by kitchen lighting, product location,
or other similar factors. This
cosmetic warranty specifically
excludes any display, floor, “As Is”,
or “B” stock appliances.

Statement of Limited Product Warranty en-us
Repair/Replace as Your
Exclusive Remedy
During this warranty period, BSH 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 BSH will replace your
Product (upgraded models may be
available to you, in the sole discretion
of BSH, for an additional charge). All
removed parts and components shall
become the property of BSH 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. BSH’s sole
liability and responsibility hereunder
is to repair manufacturer-defective
Product only, using a BSH-authorized
service provider during normal
business hours. For safety and
property damage concerns, BSH
highly recommends that you do not
attempt to repair the Product
yourself, or use an unauthorized
servicer; BSH 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 BSH products, and who
possess, in the opinion of BSH, a
superior reputation for customer
service and technical ability (note
that they are independent entities
and are not agents, partners,
affiliates or representatives of BSH).
Notwithstanding the foregoing, BSH
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, BSH 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
BSH 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 BSH, including without limitation,
one or more of the following:
■
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

and other structures or objects
