About this manual

These operating and installation instructions apply to more than one model of dryer. Illustrations used may show details that differ from your particular model.

Read your user manual. It contains valuable information about the safety, installation and operation of your new appliance.

This can save you time, make it easier to correctly install and use your dryer, and improve your overall satisfaction with your new appliance.

Special features

A distinctive feature of your dryer is low energy consumption as it is ENERGY STAR certified.

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.

Optimize load and selected drying program

Use the maximum amount of laundry for the appropriate drying program.

Use automatic drying programs for the most energy efficient use of your dryer. They perform according to internal moisture and temperature sensors delivering optimized efficiency and fabric care.

Use the Time Dry program for touching up damp loads or for small loads. This program will use more energy than the automatic programs.

~

Program selection table; Page 28

NOTICE:

The energy rating of this dryer is based on the

Cotton Dry program with the Dryness Level set to +2 (all other option settings are off).

Clean filter

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

9

WARNING

ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD

This appliance must be electrically grounded. In the event of 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 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.

If a ground fault circuit breaker is used, ensure it has this symbol: z

.

Only this symbol can assure compliance with all current regulations.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!

9

WARNING

ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD

To reduce the risk of electrical shock:

Only pull out the power cord by the plug end and never by the cord, as this could damage it.

Never touch or hold the plug end or power cord with wet hands.

Never unplug the plug end during operation.

Leveling the dryer

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.

To adjust the dryer feet:

1.

Install the dryer on a level and solid surface, preferably in a corner of a room.

2.

3.

4.

5.

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.

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.

Use a bubble level to check the top of the dryer to make sure it is level side to side and front to rear.

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.

Check heating system

1.

Check that the drum is empty.

2.

Close the dryer door.

3.

4.

Switch the dryer to

Timed Dry Variable

program and then touch the

Start/Pause

button.

After 5-6 minutes touch the

Start/Pause

button and open the door.

If the interior of the dryer feels warm, the dryer has been connected properly. Switch the dryer to

Off

.

If the dryer does not work, switch the dryer to

Off

.

Laundry

Preparing the laundry

NOTICE:

Damage to the appliance/fabrics.

Foreign objects (e.g. coins, paper-clips, needles, nails) may damage the laundry or components in the dryer.

Therefore, note the following tips when preparing your laundry:

Empty all pockets to ensure no loose debris (coins, keys, other hard objects and cigarette lighters) are placed in the dryer drum.

Close any fasteners (such as zippers, hooks and eyelets) that could cause laundry to catch or become entangled. Button up covers. Tie cloth belts, apron strings, etc. together or use a laundry bag.

Remove any foreign objects or non-washable parts.

The drum must be empty prior to loading textiles.

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).

Drying tips

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 accessory. 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. Also suitable for adding additional drying time if necessary.

~

Program selection; Page 23

~

Program selection table; Page 28

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.

Clean the moisture sensor regularly.

The limited warranty provided by BSH Home Appliances

(“Bosch”) in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty applies only to the Bosch appliance ("Product") sold to you 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 to the original purchaser of the product warranted herein and to each succeeding owner of the product purchased for ordinary home use during the term of the warranty.

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 the original purchase. The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of the original 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.

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 the orginal purchase, labor charges excluded.

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 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 a non--authorized servicer provider; Bosch will have no responsibility or liability for repairs or work performed by a non-authorized servicer provider. 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.
