▯
A distinctive feature of your dryer is low energy
consumption.
Bosch dryers feature advanced operation philosophy,
customized drying programs and a solid touch and
feel making them a user-friendly household assistant.
Bosch load sensing feature controls power
consumption for each cycle based on the amount and
type of laundry. This automatic feature optimizes
energy efficiency.
Environmentally friendly use of your dryer
Your new Bosch dryer is designed to use energy in a
highly efficient way to help reduce operating costs,
conserve resources and protect the environment.
To save energy, money and time, Bosch recommends
the following:
▯ Spin the laundry thoroughly
Before drying, spin the laundry thoroughly in the
washing machine. Use the highest possible spin
speed for the type of laundry. Higher spin speeds
reduce the drying time and the energy consumption.
▯ Use optimum load
Utilize the maximum amount of laundry for the
appropriate cycle. However, do not exceed
recommended loads.

Leveling the dryer
Check heating system
Importance of leveling the dryer
It is important that your dryer is level and that all four
dryer feet press with equal pressure against the floor.
This will help assure the quietest, most vibration-free use
of your dryer.
1. Check that the drum is empty.
To adjust the dryer feet:
1. Install the dryer on a level and solid surface, preferably
in a corner of a room.
2. If the floor is uneven (or not level) adjust the dryer feet
as required to level the dryer. Do not place anything
under the dryer feet to help level the dryer.
3. Extend the dryer feet no more than is necessary. The
more the feet are extended, the more vibration the
dryer will experience. Start with the dryer feet turned all
the way in and adjust each foot as necessary.
4. Use a bubble level to check the top of the dryer to
make sure it is level side to side and front to rear.
5. Press down on each corner of the dryer top to make
sure the dryer does not “wobble“. There should be no
"give" or movement. All four dryer feet should press
equally against the floor. This is just as important as
the dryer being level to prevent vibration.

Sorting the laundry
Check the care labels on each laundry item prior to
drying. They provide valuable information as well as
limitations about laundry process (temperature etc.) to
help you choose an appropriate cycle.
Do not dry the following textiles in the dryer:
▯ air-tight textiles (e.g. rubberized),
▯ delicate fabrics (silk, synthetic curtains).
28
▯
▯
To ensure a uniform drying result, sort the laundry
according to fabric type and drying program.
Always dry very small items (such as socks and
handkerchiefs) and underwired bras together with
large items of laundry or in a laundry bag.
Do not over-dry easy-care laundry - risk of wrinkling!
Allow laundry to finish drying in the air.
Do not iron laundry immediately after drying. Place the
laundry in a pile for a short while. Residual moisture
will then be distributed uniformly.
Knitted fabrics (e.g. T-shirts, jerseys) often shrink when
tumble-dried for the first time. Do not use the Extra
Dry program.
Only dry wool fabrics with the use of drying rack. To
refresh or fluff up wool articles use the Hand Wash/
Wool program and remove load from dryer and layout
on flat surface to finish drying.
For pre-dried, multi-layered fabrics or small, individual
items of laundry, use the Time program.
~ Program selection table; Page 29
Also suitable for subsequent drying.
Some detergents and textile care products, starch or
softeners may contain chemicals that may become
deposited on the moisture sensors negatively affecting
their function and the drying results.
▯ When washing laundry to be tumble-dried, use the
correct amount of detergent and textile care
products as specified in the manufacturer's
instructions.

(“Bosch”) in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty
applies only to the Bosch appliance sold to you, the first
using purchaser, provided that the Product was
purchased:
For your normal, household (non-commercial) use,
and has in fact at all times only been used for normal
household purposes.
▯ New at retail (not a display, “as is”, or previously
returned model), and not for resale, or commercial
use.
▯ 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.
▯
Limitation for Third Party Accessories:
Third party accessories, other than those shipped with
your Bosch appliance, 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, other than those shipped with your
Bosch appliance. Use of third party accessories, other
than those shipped with your Bosch appliance, does not
void this warranty on any other part, and all other
provisions of this warranty remain in effect.
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. This product is
also warranted to be free from cosmetic defects in
material and workmanship (such as scratches of
stainless steel, paint/porcelain blemishes, chips, 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.
38
SCOPE OF EXTENDED LIMITED WARRANTY
Bosch will repair or replace, free of charge, any printed
circuit boards, drive motor or component part of the drive
motor that proves defective under conditions of normal
home use during the first seven hundred thirty (730)
days from the date of purchase, labor charges excluded.
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 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 to
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 AVOID.
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 in a 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,
prorates, or Product replacement, once this warranty has
expired.

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
