D N A
WARNING
When properly cared for, your new appliance has been
designed to be safe and reliable. Read all instructions
carefully before use. These precautions will reduce the
risk of burns, electric shock, fire, and injury to persons.
When using appliances, basic safety precautions must
be followed, including those in the following pages.
E V A S
▯
▯
▯
Examine the appliance after unpacking it. In the event of
transport damage, do not plug it in.
▯
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK,
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH WHEN USING YOUR
WASHING MACHINE, FOLLOW BASIC PRECAUTIONS
INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING
▯ Bosch washers are provided with an Operating, Care
and Installation Instruction manual. Read and
understand all instructions before using the washing
machine.
▯ Do not wash articles that have been previously
cleaned, washed, soaked, or spotted with gasoline, dry
cleaning solvents, other flammable or explosive
substances as they give off vapors that could ignite or
explode.
▯ Do not add gasoline, dry cleaning solvents, or other
flammable or explosive substances to the wash water.
These substances give off vapors that could ignite or
explode.
▯ Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be
produced in a hot water system that has not been used
for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
If the hot water system has not been used for this
length of time, turn on all hot water faucets and let the
water flow out of each faucet for several minutes before
using the washing machine. This will release any
accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable,
do not smoke or use an open flame while carrying out
this procedure.
▯ Before the appliance is removed from service or
discarded, remove the door to prevent children from
playing or hiding inside. Also remove the power cord/
plug.
▯ Do not allow anyone to climb, lean or hang on any part
of the washer including any protruding components
such as the appliance door or a pullout shelf.
▯ Use caution when draining hot water from the washer
drum such as during pump maintenance or when using
the emergency door open procedure.
▯ Do not reach into the appliance if the wash drum is
moving.
▯ Do not tamper with the controls.
▯ Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance or
attempt any service unless specifically recommended
in the user manual or in published user repair
instructions that you understand and have the skills to
carry out.

machine have shut-off valves that are readily
accessible during normal operation of the washer. Turn
off both valves during periods in which the washer is
not in use and before leaving for extended periods
such as vacations to reduce the risk of water damage
in the event of a leak. Turn the valves back on prior to
resuming use of the washer.
Do not operate the washing machine if parts are
missing or broken.
Do not operate the washing machine until you are sure
that:
- the washing machine has been installed according
to the Installation Instructions.

Importance of installing on a solid, level
floor
Your new Bosch washing machine utilizes high spin
speeds to achieve superior water removal from your
laundry resulting in reduced drying time. It is important to
install your washing machine on a floor that will provide
firm support. This prevents the washer from experiencing
excess vibration during spinning that could cause the
washer to move or be noisy.
The installation surface must be solid and level in both
directions. Avoid installing your washer on soft surfaces
such as floors with carpet or foam backed covering
material.
If installing the washer on a wooden floor, observe the
following:
▯ install the washer in a corner for better support if
possible.
▯ if necessary, reinforce the floor by screwing a water
resistant wooden board to the floor (minimum of
1.18 in./30 mm thick).
▯ secure the front feet of the washing machine with
holding brackets. A set of holding brackets can be
obtained from a specialist store or from Customer
Service (part number WMZ 2200).

Remove the transport bolts
CAUTION
9
DAMAGE TO THE APPLIANCE
▯ The machine is secured for transport with
transport bolts.
Transport bolts that are not removed can damage
the drum during operation of the machine, the
washer will vibrate, and it will be much noisier
during spin cycles if the transport bolts are not
removed before use.
Be sure to remove all 4 transport bolts
completely before first use. Keep the transport
bolts.
If a pedestal was purchased with the washer, it
must be installed first, prior to removing the
transport bolts. Please consult the pedestal
installation instructions.
▯ In order to prevent transport damage during later
transport, be sure to re-install the bolts before
transport.
1. Remove hoses from the brackets.
NOTICE: Keep the assemblies together and store them
for later use such as when moving the washer.
Water connections
Water supply hose connections
2. Loosen and remove all 4 transport bolts.
Remove the sleeves. Take the power cable out of the
brackets.
3. Place covers over the transport bolt holes
Four plastic covers are provided in the small parts bag
included with your washer. Separate these covers and
install one in each hole where the transport bolts were
removed.
Lock covers firmly by pressing on the snap hook.
Insert hose holder. Secure hoses in the hose holders.
12
NOTICES
▯ The washing machine must only be operated with cold
and hot (max. 140 °F/60 °C) tap water. Do not
connect the appliance to the mixer tap of a
pressurized hot-water boiler.
▯ To prevent water damage, the hot and cold water
valves should be accessible when the washing
machine is in place and should always be turned off
when the washing machine is not in use.
▯ If installing the washing machine in a new building or a
building in which the plumbing system was recently
installed or upgraded, flush the lines before installing
the washing machine to remove any sand, dirt or
residue.
▯ To prevent leakage or water damage, follow the
instruction in this chapter.
▯ If in doubt, have the appliance connected by a
technican.
Connect your washer to the wall faucets using the
included AquaSecure water supply hose.
Observe each of the following:
▯ Only use the new water supply hose shipped with your
washer. Never connect old used hoses.
▯ The water supply hoses must not be kinked, bent or
flattened in such a way as to potentially diminish water
flow.
▯ The water supply pressure must be between 14,5 to
145 psi (1 - 10 bar) with a minimum of 2.2 U.S. gallons
(8 liters) of flow per minute. A pressure regulator valve
must be installed if the maximum water pressure is
exceeded.
▯
▯
▯
▯
Make sure the water supply faucet is easily accessible
when the washer is in use. The faucet should be
turned off if the washer is going to be unused for
extended periods of time.
Make sure rubber washers are in place at both ends of
the water supply hose. Missing washers could cause
leaks.
The connection points are under full water pressure.
Turn on the water tap and check for leaks.
Periodically inspect the water supply hose and replace
with a new hose if cuts, kinks or leaks are observed.
About the AquaSecure Hose
The AquaSecure hose prevents potential flooding in the
event the hose develops an internal leak. If the hose
leaks, the indicator turns red and water flow is blocked.

SCALDING
When washing at high temperatures, there is a risk
of scalding if you touch hot suds, e.g. when
pumping out hot suds into a wash basin.
Do not reach into the hot suds.
CAUTION

APPLIANCE DAMAGE/DAMAGE TO TEXTILES
If the end of the drain hose is dipped into the
pumped-out water, water can be sucked back into
the appliance and can damage the appliance/
textiles.
Make sure that:
The sealing plugs do not seal the drain of the wash
basin.
The end of the drain hose does not dip into the
pumped-out water.
The water flows out fast enough.
4. Use a bubble level to check the top of the washer to
make sure it is level side to side and front to rear.
5. Press down on each corner of the washer top to make
sure the washer doesn’t “wobble“. There should be no
"give" or movement. All four washer feet should press
equally against the floor. This is just as important as
the washer being level to prevent vibration.
6. When the washer is level and does not wobble, lock
the washer feet in place by tightening the locknuts
against the washer bottom. Be sure to do this without
changing the height of the foot (hold the foot while
tightening the locknut).
Procedure for adjusting the washer feet:
1. After determining which washer feet need to be
extended, have someone lift up on the washer slightly
to take pressure off the foot to be adjusted.
2. Turn the grey plastic foot to extend it downward as far
as necessary to raise the corner of the washer the
correct amount to level the washer.
3. When the height of the foot is correct, use a 17 mm
open end wrench to tighten the locknut against the
washer bottom. The locknut should be tight against the
bottom of the washer to lock the foot in place.
Electrical connection

ELECTRICAL SHOCK
Improper connection of the ground may result in
electric shock. Have the appliance checked by a
qualified technician or licensed electrician if you are
in doubt as to whether the washer has been
properly grounded.
Attach the drain hose securely to the wash basin.
NOTICE: In any multi-story installation, the washer
should be installed on a drained floor to prevent water
damage to rooms below in the event of a leak.
Leveling the washer
Importance of leveling the washer
Your new washer uses high spins speeds to remove
water at the end of the wash cycle. It is important that
your washer is level and that all four washer feet press
with equal pressure against the floor. This will help
assure the quietest, most vibration-free use of your
washer.
Follow these steps:
1. Install the washer on a level and solid surface,
preferably in a corner of a room.
2. If the floor is uneven (or unlevel) adjust the washer feet
as required to level the washer. Do not place anything
under the washer feet to help level the washer.
3. Extend the washer feet no more than is necessary. The
more the feet are extended, the more vibration the
washer will experience. Start with the washer feet
turned all the way in and adjust each foot as
necessary.

Cleaning and maintenance
Your washer is designed to give you many years of
service. Observe the following instructions to maintain
and protect your washer and keep it in top operating
condition.

If there is a buildup of residual detergent or additives, or
if the softener compartment is not rinsed out well
enough, it may be helpful to clean the dispenser.
WARNING
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK!
To avoid risk of electric shock always disconnect
the washer from the power outlet prior to cleaning.
Never clean the washer with a pressure washer.

drawer catch (1) and pull the drawer (2) from the
washer housing.
2. Remove the liquid detergent insert (3) by grasping it
and pulling it upwards from the detergent dispenser
drawer.
3. Clean the insert by holding it under warm running
water. Lightly wipe away any remaining detergent
residue.
4. Reinsert the liquid detergent insert and slide the
detergent dispenser drawer back into place and close
the drawer securely.
Cleaning the drum
Tip: Do not operate the washer without the detergent
drawer in place and completely closed.
RISK OF EXPLOSION!
To avoid risk of explosion never clean the washer
with flammable solvents.
Metallic debris left in the drum can produce rust spots on
the drum. Never use steel wool to try to remove these.
Use a chlorine-free cleansing agent and follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
Descaling the washer
Provided that you use correct amounts of detergent with
your wash loads, descaling is not necessary. If descaling
the washer drum does become necessary, please follow
the descaling product manufacturer’s instructions.
Small amounts of descaling agent can be used to
remove white spots on the washer drum caused by lime
or mineral deposits or small amounts of rust caused by
metal objects left in the drum.
NOTICE: Descaling agents contain acids which may
attack parts of the washing machine and may discolor
the laundry.
Cleaning the water inlet strainers
If the washer water supply slows or stops completely, the
water inlet strainer may be blocked. Cleaning is
recommended every 6 months in any event to reduce
chances of valve blockage in areas using hard water.
Release the water under pressure in the supply hoses
Normal water pressure in your home will cause some
water to leak when you remove the water supply hose
from the back of the washer. You can minimize this by
first de-pressurizing the hoses.
1. Turn off the water tap.
2. Turn the cycle selector to any wash cycle (not to Drain
or Spin).
3. Press Start/Pause and allow 30 seconds to pass.
4. Turn the cycle selector to the Off position.
This should reduce the water pressure on the water
supply hose.
26
Clean the strainers at the water tap end of the hose
It may be necessary to clean the washer drain pump if
the washer fails to drain (sound of water being pumped
from the washer cannot be heard when the washer
should be draining and other nearby drains, such as a
sink, are draining properly).
The washer pump can become blocked by loose debris
(a good reason to check the drum and remove any
visible debris after each load.) Fabrics that give off large
amounts of fluff may also cause blockage.
To access the washer drain pump, the service cover
must first be removed (see steps below). With the service
cover removed, proceed as follows:
1. Remove the hose from the tap.
1. If the washer has not been drained, try to drain it now.
2. Rinse the strainer under running water. Look at the
strainer to see if any visible debris is still present.
Rinse again if necessary to remove the debris.
3. Reconnect the hose to the tap.
Clean the strainers at the washer end of the hose
1. Remove the hose from the inlet on the back of the
washer.
2. Using narrow pliers, grasp and pull the strainer from
the inlet port.
3. Rinse the strainer under running water.
4. Reconnect the hose to the back of the washer and
turn on the water tap. Check to see if water flows by
starting a warm water wash cycle.
Turn the cycle selector to the Spin/Drain cycle, select
No spin and press the Start/Pause button. Wait a few
moments to let the cycle drain the water from the
drum. If the pump is totally blocked, the water will be
unable to drain and the cycle will end.
2. Shut off the tap so that no more water flows in and has
to be drained.
Switch the appliance off. Unplug the power plug.
3. Open and remove the service cover.
NOTICE: Check for leaks to be sure the rubber washers
are seated at both ends of the water supply hose and the
connections are properly tightened.

4. Loosen the screws and remove the protective film.
WARNING
RISK OF SCALDING
Risk of hot water injury to skin!
Allow the water to cool down prior to actuating the

Caution, you are responsible for ensuring the safety
of doing so. The water in the drum may be very hot
and may pose a scald risk. Also, the drum may be
full of water.
ƒ)

5. Use the pull-out drain hose located in the pump
access opening to drain the remaining water into a
suitable container (up to 5.3 U.S. gallons/20 liters of
water may be drained). Pull the sealing cap from the
hose and lay the hose over the side of the container
and allow the water to finish draining from the drum.
When finished, replace the sealing cap into the end of
the hose and restore the hose to its storage location.
6. Turn the pump cover counterclockwise to remove it. A
small amount of residual water may flow out when the
cover is removed.
Clean the interior of the pump housing, removing any
debris or foreign objects. Check to be sure the
impeller wheel at the back of the pump housing can
now turn freely.
Remove any lint, debris or detergent residue from the
threads of the pump cover and the pump cover
housing.
Replace the pump cover and tighten the screws.
Handle must be vertical.
7. Screw the protective film on the pump on again.
8. Insert the service cover snap it in, and close it.
NOTICE: In order to prevent detergent from flowing
unused into the drain during the next wash cycles: pour
0.26 U.S. gallons/1 liter water into the chamber II.
Turn the cycle selector to the Spin/Drain cycle, select No
spin and press the Start/Pause button.

STATEMENT OF LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY
Bosch Clothes Washer
What this Warranty Covers & Who it Applies to: The
limited warranty provided by BSH Home Appliances
Corporation (Bosch) in this Statement of Limited Product
Warranty applies only to the Bosch Clothes Washer
("Product") sold to you, the first using purchaser, but
strictly conditioned on the Product having been
purchased: (1) for your normal, household (noncommercial) use, and has in fact at all times only been
used for normal household purposes (any commercial
use or setting of the Product automatically voids the
warranty); (2) new at retail (not a display, "as is", or
previously returned model) purchased directly by the
end-user consumer, 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.
Bosch reserves the right to request proof of purchase at
the time any warranty claim is submitted to confirm that
the Product falls within the scope of this limited product
warranty. The warranty is automatically void if the Product
was a display model, sold "as is", tampered with, a
damaged or "scratch and dent" model, or a previously
returned model, a free give-away, charitable donation or
contest prize.
Limitation for Third Party Accessories and Water
Supply Hoses: Third party accessories, including water
supply hoses other than those shipped with your Bosch
washer, and any consequential damages resulting
therefrom, are not covered by this warranty. This
limitation expressly includes the implied warranties of
merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose,
which are also expressly excluded with respect to third
party accessories, including water supply hoses other
than those shipped with your Bosch washer. Use of third
party accessories, including water supply hoses other
than those shipped with your Bosch washer, does not
void this warranty on any other part, and all other
provisions of this warranty remain in effect.
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.
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 manufacturerdefective 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.
LENGTH OF WARRANTY
2 year Limited Warranty on Drive Motor from Date of
Purchase
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 days
(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.

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

are solely responsible for any structure and setting for
the Product, including all electrical, plumbing or other
connecting facilities, for proper foundation/flooring, and
for any alterations including without limitation cabinetry,

WARRANTY SETS OUT YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES
WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCT, WHETHER THE CLAIM
ARISES IN CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING STRICT
LIABILITY, OR NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE. THIS
WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES,
WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. ANY WARRANTY

OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR
OTHERWISE, SHALL BE EFFECTIVE ONLY FOR THE
34
PERIOD THAT THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY IS
EFFECTIVE. IN NO EVENT WILL THE MANUFACTURER
BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, "BUSINESS LOSS", AND/OR
PUNITIVE DAMAGES, LOSSES, OR EXPENSES,
INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION TIME AWAY FROM
WORK, HOTELS AND/OR RESTAURANT MEALS,
REMODELLING EXPENSES IN EXCESS OF DIRECT
DAMAGES WHICH ARE DEFINITIVELY CAUSED
EXCLUSIVELY BY Bosch, OR OTHERWISE. SOME
STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, AND SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW
LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG IMPLIED WARRANTY
LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY
TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC
LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER
RIGHTS, WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE. No
attempt to alter, modify or amend this warranty shall be
effective unless authorized in writing by an officer of BSH.
