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.

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

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).
Remove the transport bolts
9
CAUTION
DAMAGE TO THE APPLIANCE OR INJURY
POSSIBLE
▯ 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.
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.
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
instructions in this chapter.
▯ If in doubt, have the appliance installed by an
authorized technician.
Connect your washer to the wall faucets using the
included AquaShield® water supply hose.
Observe each of the following:
▯ Only use the new water supply hose shipped with your
washer. Never use old used hoses.
▯ The water supply hoses must not be kinked, bent, or
pinched causing hose damage or restricting 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.
▯
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.
NOTICE: Keep the assemblies together and store them
for later use such as when moving the washer.

WARNING
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.
NOTICE: APPLIANCE DAMAGE/DAMAGE TO TEXTILES
If the end of the drain hose touches the discharge water
(water drained from washer) it (the discharge water) can
be sucked back into the appliance and may damage the
appliance or textiles.
Importance of leveling the washer
Your new washer uses high spin 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.
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).

Grounding Instructions
WARNING

ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce
the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least
resistance for the electric current. This appliance is
equipped with a cord that has an equipment
grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that
is properly installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
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.

ZDUP
FROG
Check the care labels on each laundry item prior to
washing. Choose an appropriate wash cycle that does
not exceed the temperature recommended.
Determining degree of soiling
▯ Light soiling
No visible soiling or stains, but may have absorbed
some body odor. This could include light weight
summer clothing such as T-shirts, shirts, or blouses
worn for only one day. Also to freshen bed linen or
guest towels.
▯ Normal soiling
Visible soiling and/or a few light stains. This could
include clothing such as T-shirts, shirts, or blouses that
have been sweated in or worn several times. Also tea
towels, hand towels or bed linen used for up to one
week. Net curtains (without nicotine stains) that have
not been washed for up to a half year.
▯
Heavy soiling
Visible soiling and stains. This could include kitchen
towels, fabric napkins, baby bibs, children’s outer
clothing or football jerseys and shorts stained with
grass and/or earth. Also could include working clothes
such as overalls and jeans and other clothing worn for
outside work and activities such as gardening, home
and yard maintenance or worn during sports activities.
Identifying and treating stains
Oils and grease: normal body skin oil,
cooking oils/fats, sauces, mineral oil, or
wax (containing fat/oil). Treatment: scrape
residue from fabric. Pretreat. Wash using
hottest water safe for the fabric. For heavy
stains, apply non-flammable dry cleaning
fluid to back of stain, replacing towels
under stain frequently. Rinse thoroughly
and wash using hottest water safe for the
fabric.
Beverages and juices: tea, coffee, red
wine, fruit, vegetables. Treatment: Pretreat
stain. Wash using cold water.
Proteins and carbohydrates: blood, egg,
milk, starch. Treatment: Rinse immediately
in cold water. If stain remains, soak in cold
water with an enzyme prewash.
Soot, earth, sand (pigments), red clay
(such as soiling of tennis clothing). Brush
off residue if present. Pretreat or soak with
a laundry product containing enzymes.

Cleaning the detergent dispenser tray
WARNING
RISK OF EXPLOSION!
To avoid risk of explosion never clean the washer
with flammable solvents.
As required, you may clean the washer housing and
control panel.
- use hot soapy water or a mild (non-abrasive) cleansing
agent.
- Dry with a soft towel.
- Remove residue immediately.
- Do not use high pressure spray.
Cleaning the drum
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.
1. Open the detergent dispenser tray fully. Press down
on the drawer catch (1) and pull the tray (2) from the
washer housing.
2. Remove the insert (3) by grasping it and pulling it
upwards from the detergent dispenser tray.
3. Clean the insert and the detergent dispenser tray by
holding it under warm running water. Lightly wipe away
any remaining detergent residue.
4. Attach the insert and slide the detergent dispenser tray
back into place and close the tray securely.
Tip: Do not operate the washer without the detergent
dispenser tray in place. Always keep the tray completely
closed.
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. Touch 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.

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. If the washer has not been drained, try to drain it now.
Turn the program selector to the Drain and touch 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.
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.
29
3. Open and remove the service cover.
4. Loosen the screws and remove the protective film.
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 by screwing tightly into
position. Handle must be vertical.
7. Reinstall the protective film over the pump access
using both screws.
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.
8. Snap the service cover in place at the hinges and
close it.Wipe up any spilled water.
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 Drain and touch the Start/
Pause button.

("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

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

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.
