A distinctive feature of your Bosch dryer is its SelfCleaning Condenser. This is unique only to Bosch
Heat Pump dryers and eliminates the additional
requirements of cleaning a secondary condensate
filter found on all other Heat Pump dryers.
The Bosch Self-Cleaning condenser keeps energy
usage low for life by regularly rinsing the condenser
with every drying cycle. This helps maintain the low
energy consumption as originally certified as an
ENERGY STAR MOST EFFICIENT dryer.
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 36
NOTICE: The energy rating of this dryer is based on the
Cotton program with the Dryness Level set to Dry (all
other option settings are off).
▯
▯
▯
Clean filters
Clean the lint filters before or after each drying
process.
~ Cleaning the lint filters; Page 39
Air inlet on the dryer
Do not cover or allow any articles/items to restrict the
air inlet on the front of the dryer.
Energy-saving mode
The display panel lighting goes out after a few minutes
and Start/Pause flashes. To activate the display, press
any button.
Energy-saving mode is not activated if a program is

▯
▯
▯
▯
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 program with
selected Extra Dry dryness level.
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.

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.
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).
Nothing in this warranty requires damaged or defective
parts to be replaced with parts of a different type or
design than the original part. 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.
