SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING -- When using your dishwasher, basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury to persons, including the following:
1. Bosch dishwashers are provided with two manuals: an Installation Instruction Manual and a
Use and Care Manual. Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
2. Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.
3. Use only detergents or wetting agents recommended for use in a dishwasher and keep them out
of the reach of children.

When loading items to be washed:
a. Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal; and
b. Load sharp knives with the handle up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.
Do not wash plastic items unless marked "dishwasher safe" or the equivalent. For plastic items
not so marked, check the manufacturer's recommendations.
Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use.
Do not operate your dishwasher unless all the enclosure panels are properly in place.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish rack of the dishwasher.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher.
Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not
been used for two weeks or more. Hydrogen gas is explosive. If the hot water system has not
been used for such a period, before using the dishwasher turn on all hot water faucets and let
the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas.
As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service
or discarding.
WARNING -- This dishwasher must be grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code
and/or local codes. These must be carefully followed in all cases. See Installation Instructions
provided with this dishwasher for complete installation information. Make sure this dishwasher has
been properly grounded and installed by a qualified installer before using.

GETTING STARTED
The operation of your Bosch dishwasher is summarized
below:
1. Load the dishwasher.
Refer to Table l for items suitable for washing in the
dishwasher. The dishwasher should be loaded with
pots, pans, dishes and silverware according to the
instructions provided under the following section
titled LOADING.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Add detergent and check rinse agent.
Detergent must be placed in the detergent dispenser
compartment as described in the following section
titled DETERGENT USE. The use of a rinse agent is
required to ensure good cleaning and drying result.
See section titled RINSE AGENT DISPENSER.
Check motion of wash arms.
The wash arms must be free to move and should not
be blocked by any item extending so far above lower
rack as to block upper arm or by any items hanging
below either the upper or lower rack to obstruct the
motion of the wash arms. See following section titled
OPERATION.
Close the door of the dishwasher.
Make sure that the door is completely closed and latched.
Select a wash cycle, see Table 2.
Start the dishwasher.
Turn the "Start and Run Knob" to the cycle you desire
(Power Scrub or Regular Wash). Then choose the
temperature option you want for the cycle you chose
by depressing the "High Temp. Wash" or the "Regular
Temp. Wash" buttons. If you choose the "Rinse and
Hold" Cycle on the "Start and Run Knob", then you
also need to choose the Rinse & Hold" button. After
you are finished selecting your cycle and temperature,
then depress the On/Off button. The indicator light
above the On/Off button will become illuminated and
the dishwasher will start. The "Start and Run Knob"
7,
will rotate clockwise as the dishwasher cycle progresses.
It is possible to discern at what stage the cycle is in,
by noting the position of the knob indicator.
To stop dishwasher.
Depress the On/Off button. The indicator light above
the On/Off button will turn off. See the following
section titled TO INTERRUPT OR RESET CYCLE.
PREPARATIONS FOR WASHING
Very little preparation is required before placing dishes,
pots, pans, etc. into the dishwasher. However, some
preparation is required:
•
Large solids, such as, bones, large seeds, shells, skins,
leafy vegetables, meat trimmings, etc. should be
removed either by scraping into a wastebasket, or into
your food disposer.
•
Large amounts of any type of leftover food should also
be scraped into a wastebasket or into your food disposer.
•
Pots and pans that have burned-on food, the food is
blackened, should be pre-soaked and scoured. The
dishwasher cannot remove burned-on food.
•
Do not place the following items in the dishwasher:
> toothpicks
> small bones and bone slivers
> paper products such as paper plates and paper
napkins
> plastic bags or plastic packaging material.
In general, try to remove food scraps and place the items
to be washed in the dishwasher
before the food has had a
chance to dry-on. Dried-on food is more difficult to
remove. If there will be an extended period of time before
the dishwasher
will be run it is recommended
that the
"Rinse
& Hold" cycle be used.
Other than the above, no special preparation or pre-rinsing
is required for dishes, pots and pans or utensils with
normal amounts of food soil.

LOADING
LOADING
THE TOP RACK
The top rack is designed for glasses, cups, plates, bowls
and saucers. Glasses, cups, plates, bowls, saucers and
small pots may be loaded in many different positions to
fit your needs. Figure 3, shows a typical mixed load for
an upper rack washing load.
The dishwasher
At completion of loading of the upper rack check to
make sure that nothing is protruding through or
hanging beneath the bottom of the rack, which could
block the rotation of the spray arm.
should be loaded so that water can
circulate freely and reach every part of every item that is
to be cleaned:
•
Cups, glasses and containers
should be placed in upper
rack upside down so that water drains off of them and
does not collect in them. Tall narrow vessels, such as a
vase or tall glass, should be placed in the lower rack,
near the middle, for the best cleaning result.
Figure 4.
LOADING THE LOWER RACK
•
Large and/or heavily soiled items should be placed in
the lower rack of the dishwasher. Heavily soiled pots
and pans should be placed face down. See figure 4.
Figure 3.
China, crystal and other delicate items must be placed
so that they do not touch each other during dishwasher
operation. Chipping or other damage may occur if
items can touch each other while the dishwasher is
running.
Large serving spoons and forks, spatulas, tongs and
large knives can be placed in the top rack. Be sure to
space these large utensils so that water may flow
freely over them and so that water does not collect in
them; - - - serving spoons and ladles should be placed
facing downward so as not to collect water.
Silverware should be mixed when placed in the
silverware basket. The purpose of mixing the
silverware is to avoid having them nest together. For
example, if spoons were placed side by side in the basket, they might 'nest together'. If this happened, then
the water would not properly circulate across the
spoons to clean the surfaces.
Silverware should be placed in the silverware basket
with the handles down, with the exception of the
knives, which in order to avoid accidentally cutting
oneself, should be placed with the handles up.
If you do inadvertently load the silverware basket with
the knife blades up it is recommended, to avoid cutting
yourself when unloading, that you remove the silverware
basket from the dishwasher and tip the contents out onto
a cutting board.
USING THE DISPENSERS
For the best washing result it is important to use the correct
amount of detergent and rinse agent.
DETERGENT
USE
Use only fresh dishwashing detergent (powder is
recommended) manufactured specifically for dishwasher
use. Use of other types of detergents will result in
excessive suds. Be sure to check the phosphate content of
the detergent to be used. Phosphate helps prevent the
minerals in hard water from forming a film or spots on
dishes. Hard water requires your detergent to work harder.
In hard water areas you will find that detergents with high
phosphate levels will provide a better result. If the
phosphate level is low, below 8.7%, you may have to use
extra detergent in hard water areas.
Be sure to follow the dishwasher detergent manufacturer's
instructions when using the detergents. Concentrated
detergents usually call for lower usage than do standard
detergents.
Note:
Do not use detergent when the Rinse & Hold cycle
has been selected.
........
Release
Figure 6.
The amount of detergent to be used depends on the cycle
selected and the water hardness:
•
•
•
For water of medium hardness and "Regular Wash"
cycle it is recommended that the detergent dispenser
be filled to the 25 milliliters, (5 tsp.) level.
With hard water, or with the "Power Scrub" cycle,
it is recommended that the detergent dispenser be
completely filled, roughly 9 teaspoons.
With soft water the amount of detergent may be
reduced.
If you have water of medium or higher hardness and the
dishes do not come out clean, the cause (in the majority of
cases) is the use of too little detergent rather than too
much. If you have very soft water, or chemically treated
soft water, special care should be taken to use the minimum amount of detergent. For these situations a high quality, low phosphate detergent is recommended. Too much
detergent combined with soft water may cause etching of
glassware.
After filling the detergent compartment close the cover
by sliding it over the detergent chamber and pressing
down on the button until it clicks shut. The detergent will
be dispensed automatically during the wash portion of the
cycle.
Figure 5.
DETERGENT
DISPENSER
The detergent dispenser on the Bosch dishwasher is
located on the inside of the door, see figure 1 as well as
figure 9 and 10. The detergent dispenser cover may be
opened by pulling the release tab (figure 10) toward you.

dispenser is completely filled it can hold
or roughly 9 teaspoons.
If
If the cover of the detergent dispenser is closing fully but
it won't latch, this is most likely due to the dishwasher
having been stopped in mid cycle. Check the position of
the "Start and Run Knob", see Figure 2, to see if cycle has
been completed. If the cycle is not completed please refer
to section of this manual titled TO INTERRUPT OR
RESET CYCLE to reset cycle.
RINSE AGENT
INDICATOR
There is level indicator on the dispenser, see Figure I 1
and 13. This indicator shows the level of rinse agent that is
in the rinse agent reservoir. As received, and when empty,
the level indicator on the dispenser will appear blank.
When the rinse agent reservoir is full the level indicator on
the dispenser will appear dark.

RINSE AGENT DISPENSER REGULATOR
The rinse agent reservoir of the Bosch dishwasher is
provided with a regulator calibrated from 1 to 6. See
Figure 13. This regulator controls the amount of rinse
agent dispensed. The dishwasher leaves the factory
preset to 3_. This has been chosen as the average setting,
however:
•
if you see streaks, it is recommended
be turned to a lower number.
that the regulator
•
if water spots appear, it is recommended that the
regulator be turned to a higher number.

OPERATION
Once detergent has been added and before closing the door
of the dishwasher check the wash arms to ensure that they
are free to move. With the detergent in the dishwasher and
arms free to move:
•
Close the door of the dishwasher making sure that
door latch is closed.
•
Depress
the button for the temperature
you desire.
Turn the "Start and Run Knob" to "Power Scrub",
"Regular Wash", or "Rinse & Hold" (depending
upon the cycle you choose) and depress the On/Off
button. See Figure 2. The indicator light above the
On/Off button will become illuminated to indicate that
the dishwasher is on and the cycle will begin.
Note: DO NOT USE DETERGENT IF YOU CHOOSE
"RINSE & HOLD."
TO INTERRUPT
OR RESET CYCLE
To interrupt cycle simply depress the On/Off button to stop
operation. If you are interrupting the cycle during a wash
or rinse cycle please wait until the water noises stop before
opening the door. After opening the door leave it ajar for a
few minutes. The cycle then may be resumed by closing
the door and depressing the on/off button.
As a safety feature the dishwasher will automatically turn
itself off whenever the door is unlatched. However, if the
door is opened quickly while in a wash or rinse cycle some
water may splash out of the dishwasher. For this reason it
is recommended that the machine always be switched to
off before opening the door.
If you wish to reset the cycle to its beginning after
stopping the dishwasher:
1. Close the door of the dishwasher. Make sure that the
door is completely closed and latched.
2.
3.
Turn the "Start and Run Knob" to your cycle
selection.
The dishwasher is now reset and ready to mn your
selected wash cycle.

and
items;
the
the following
Filters
The filters should be checked on a regular basis. To
remove the filters, turn the knurled ring handle of the
coarse/microfilter ¼turn counter-clockwise, see Figure
10, and lift out the coarse/microfilter. After removing
the coarse/microfilter the fine filter should also be
inspected from time to time. Examine the filters. If
large solids, such as bones, or large seed(s) are present,
remove the filters and dispose of the large solids by
emptying into a waste basket. If any other items have
been trapped by the filters, paper labels for example,
these should also be removed while you have the filters out of the dishwasher. These smaller items can
usually be flushed out under running water if you have
trouble removing them by hand.
After cleaning, reinsert the filters in the dishwasher
making sure to press the filters firmly into position,
and then turning the knurled ring ¼ turn clockwise
until locked. Pull gently on the knurled ring to make
sure the filters are again locked in place.
Other areas requiring periodic maintenance
are the wash
arms, stainless steel tank, inner door, and door gasket:
•
Wash Arms
The wash arms should be checked on a regular basis
to assure that the spray orifices are clear and
unobstructed.
If the wash arms require cleaning they
are easily removable:
Figure 11.
> The lower wash arm simply snaps into place and
can be removed by pulling upwards.
> The upper wash arm is held in position by a locking
ring that can be released by turning it approximately
1/8 turn. See figure 15.
After cleaning, reattach the wash arms by reversing
the action used to remove them.
Stainless Steel Tank and Door
The outer edges of the inside door panel should be
cleaned on a regular basis to remove food particles
that can gather there from normal loading. If spots
begin to appear on the stainless steel door or tank,
check to make sure that the RINSE AGENT
RESERVOIR has rinse agent in it. It is also possible
that the wash arms are blocked, which prevented the
door as well as your dishware from being properly
washed and rinsed. Check the wash arms to make sure
they are moving freely. If not, clear the obstruction
away so that the arms may rotate freely and then
rewash the load of dishes in the dishwasher.
Spots that appear on the stainless steel door may be
removed by wiping gently with a sponge sprinkled
with a stainless steel cleaner. Do not use metal
scouring pads to clean the stainless steel surfaces
as these can scratch the surface and leave metal
fragments that can rust.
Door Gasket
The door gasket should be cleaned on a regular basis
to remove food particles that can gather from normal
loading. If necessary, clean the door gasket using a
damp cloth.
