9 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

( IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONSI MPORTANT SAFETY I NSTRUCTI ONSREAD AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

This dishwasher is provided with Installation Instructions and this Use and Care Manual. Read and understand all instructions before using the dishwasher. This dishwasher is intended for use up to a maximum altitude of 13,000 ft (4,000 meters) above sea level.

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or serious injury, observe the following: Ri s k o f f i r e , e l ec t r i c a l s hoc k , or s er i ous i n j ur y

9 WARNING RISK OF INJURY OR DEATH! Misuse of the dishwasher can result in serious injury or death. Do not use the dishwasher in any way not covered in this manual or for any purpose other than those explained in the following pages.

9 WARNING RISK OF INJURY! Severe injury and/or product damage could result from the use of unauthorized service technicians or non-original replacement parts. All repairs must be performed by an authorized service technician using only original equipment factory replacement parts.

9 WARNING RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK OR FIRE! Electrical shock or fire could result if the electrical supply for the dishwasher covered in this manual is incorrectly installed or if the dishwasher has been improperly grounded. Do not use the dishwasher covered in this manual unless you are certain the electrical supply has been correctly installed and the dishwasher has been properly grounded.

9 WARNING RISK OF EXPLOSION! 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. Before using a dishwasher that is connected to a hot water system that has been unused for two weeks or longer, 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 explosive, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

When cleaning your dishwasher with any cleaning agent, remove all cookware, utensils or any foreign material from inside. Some cleaning agents are highly acidic and/or caustic alkaline, which can cause

hydrogen gas to form if aluminum material is also inside the dishwasher tub. Hydrogen gas is explosive. Refer to the Care and Maintenance section of the dishwasher Use and Care manual for instructions on how to properly clean your dishwasher.

9 WARNING HEALTH HAZARD! Never use harsh chemicals to clean your dishwasher. Some bleach-based products can damage your dishwasher and may present health hazards!

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS This appliance must be grounded to a metal, permanent wiring system or an equipment grounding conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipment grounding terminal or lead on the dishwasher. See the Installation Instructions included with this dishwasher for more information on electrical requirements.

9 WARNING RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK! This appliance must be grounded. In the event of a 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 having an equipment-grounding conductor. Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt whether the appliance is properly grounded.

Safe Operation Use this dishwasher only for its intended function, which is the washing of household dishware and kitchenware rated as dishwasher safe. Use only detergents or rinsing agents recommended for use in a dishwasher, and keep them out of the reach of children.

9 CAUTION When loading items to be washed: Locate sharp items so they

are not likely to damage the door seal.

Load knives and other sharp utensils with their HANDLES UP to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.

en-us Water softening system / special salt

+ Water softening system / special salt

Wat er s of t en i ng s y s t em / s pec i a l s a l tTo ensure good rinsing results, the dishwasher requires soft water, i.e. water which is low in lime, otherwise limescale will be deposited on the utensils and interior container. Tap water above 7 dH (1.2 mmol/l) must be softened. The water is softened with special salt (regeneration salt) in the water softening system of the dishwasher. The setting and therefore the required amount of salt depends on the degree of hardness of your tap water (see following water hardness table).

Using a Water Hardness Test Strip The strip will be included in the use and care kit. Sample test strip

Follow the instructions below for the included test strip. (If purchasing a different test strip, follow manufacturers instructions).

1. Run the water at the kitchen sink for 5 minutes.

2. Dip the end of the test strip with the colored squares into the tap water for 1 second and shake off excess water.

3. After one minute, compare the test strip to the chart on the test strip packaging and determine the Dishwasher Water Softener setting (see below).

4. Adjust the dishwasher Water Softener setting.

5. If required, add salt to the dishwasher salt chamber as shown. ~ "Using special dishwasher salt" on page 19

Water hardness table

Adjusting the water softening system The amount of salt dispensed can be set from 0 to 62E. Salt is not required at the set value 0-8.

Set the softening system as follows: 1. Ask your local water utility

company for the water hardness value of your tap water or use test strip.

2. Required setting can be found in the water hardness table.

3. Open the door. 4. Switch on On/Off switch (. 5. Press Info button 8 for

3 seconds until the following text is indicated on the display window at the top @: Scroll with < > Set with - + Leave with Setup 3 sec.

6. Keep pressing button > ` until the water hardness is indicated on the display window at the top @.

7. Make the selection with setting buttons + - X.

8. Press and hold the Info button 8 for 3 seconds.

The chosen setting has now been stored.

Using special dishwasher salt As soon as the low salt indicator lights up on the digital display @, salt should be topped off. Always refill with special salt immediately before switching on the appliance. This ensures that overrun special salt solution is immediately washed out and does not corrode the rinsing tub.

NOTICE

Detergent will destroy the water softening system! Never pour detergent into the salt dispenser.

Top off the salt as follows: 1. Undo the screw plug on the

dispenser 1b. 2. Fill the dispenser with water

(required only when switching on the appliance for the first time).

3. Add salt as illustrated (do not use table salt, salt tablets or salt for use with whole house water softeners). The water is displaced and runs out.

For more information about buying dishwasher salt, please contact Customer Service 1-800-944-2904.

Using detergents with salt component Det er gent wi t h a s a l t c omponentIf combined detergents with a salt component are used, special salt can usually be omitted up to a water hardness of 21 dH (37 fH, 26 Clarke, 3.7 mmol/l). If the water hardness is over 21 dH, salt must be used.

Switching off low salt indicator / water softening system Swi t c h i ng o f f wat er s of t en i ng s y s t emIf the use of combined detergents with a salt component impairs the low salt indicator P on the control panel or the text on the display window at the top @ (enough salt for x rinse cycles), the displays can be switched off. Proceed as described under Setting water softening system and set the value to 0-8. The water softening system and salt refill indicator are now switched off.

en-us Detergent

. Detergent Det er gentUse only detergent specifically designed for dishwashers. For best results, use fresh powdered dishwashing detergent or detergent tabs.

NOTICE

To avoid damage to dishwasher or dishware: Do not use hand dishwashing

products in your dishwasher. Do not use too much detergent if

your water is soft. Using too much detergent with soft water may cause etching in glassware and fine china.

To best protect glassware, use a wash cycle with low temperatures or a specific glass-care cycle (depending on the model) and use a detergent that includes etch protection.

This dishwasher uses less water than most, therefore, less detergent is required. With soft water, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of detergent will clean most loads. The detergent dispenser cup has lines that measure detergent to 1 tablespoon (15 ml) and 1.75 tablespoons (25 ml). 3 tablespoons (45 ml) of detergent will completely fill the detergent dispenser.

Note: If you do not know the hardness of your water supply, use 15 ml of detergent. Increase the amount if necessary to the least amount required to get your kitchenware clean.

Use the measuring lines in the detergent dispenser cup as a guide to measure the amount of detergent recommended in the following table.

SpeedPerfect SpeedPerfect is an option that allows saving time without sacrificing wash and dry performance. Selecting this option ensures the same final temperatures as the underlying cycle by starting the heat period at an earlier phase in the program. Selecting this option also increases energy consumption while reducing cycle time.

Half Load Can reduce water consumption when washing small, lightly soiled loads that fill approximately half or less of the dishwashers capacity.

Delicate This options reduced time and temperature are best for lightly soiled items with easy to remove food soils. The option also reduces the likelihood of cloudy glasses. Rinse aid is recommended for the high gloss drying function (even when using combination detergents).

Sanitize Increases the temperatures and retains them for an extra long time to obtain a defined disinfecting performance. Continuous use of this function increases the hygiene status. This additional option is ideal for cleaning items such as chopping boards and baby bottles. Sanitized will appear in the display window when sanitation requirements are met. Using the Sanitize option may also improve drying. There is a slight increase in energy consumption.

CrystalDry Patented CrystalDry technology thoroughly dries dishes and plastics such as baby bottles and food storage containers. Natural minerals transform moisture into heat up to 176F to get dishes, even plastics 60% drier.* * Based on aggregate average drying performance of Bosch Dishwashers with CrystalDry on combined household load including plastics, glass, steel, and porcelain as compared to Bosch Dishwashers with PureDry.

AquaSensor The AquaSensor is an optical measuring device which measures the cleanliness of the rinse water. The AquaSensor is used according to the wash cycle. If the AquaSensor is active, clean rinse water can be transferred to the next rinse and water consumption can be reduced by 0.81-5 gal (36 liters). If the rinse water is not yet clear, the water is drained and is replaced with fresh water. In the automatic wash cycles the temperature and running time can also be adjusted to the degree of soiling.

Time display The wash cycle time is determined during the wash cycle by the water temperature, the amount of dishes, as well as the degree of soiling and may vary (depending on the selected wash cycle). You can change the time display into time of day or hours/minutes so that the remaining cycle time of the wash cycle appears in the display window Finish at (for example 15:20 oclock) or Finish in (for example 3:25 hours).

Sensor setting The wash cycle sequence is optimized in Auto wash cycles with the aid of sensors. The sensors adjust the wash cycle strength of Auto wash cycles depending on the amount and type of soiling. You can adjust the sensitivity of the sensors in 3 stages. Standard: This setting is recommend for daily regular or typical use. This is the most energy efficient setting. Sensitive: This setting adjusts the wash cycle strength for the effective removal of food remnants, even if the amount of soiling is low. The energy

and water consumption is increased accordingly. Very sensitive: This setting adjusts the wash cycle strength for difficult conditions of use, for example firmly dried on food remnants. This setting is recommended if using biological or eco detergents which contain lower amounts of active agents. The energy and water consumption is increased accordingly.

Extra Dry The final rinse uses a higher temperature which improves the drying result. The cycle time may increase slightly. (Caution if utensils are delicate!) You can switch the Extra Dry function on or off. There is a slight increase in energy consumption.

Eco forecast When Eco forecast is activated, the average water and energy consumption of the selected wash cycle is briefly displayed in the digital display @.

Auto power off This setting determines the length of time the control panel stays illuminated after the cycle is complete. To save energy, the recommended setting is after one minute.

Possible settings are: off: The appliance does not

switch off automatically. After one minute: The appliance

switches off after 1 minute. This is the most energy efficient setting.

After two hours: The appliance switches off after 2 hours.

Filters The Bosch filter system 1j is designed to prevent the need to pre-rinse normally attached food soils from your dishes. Simply scrape leftover food soils off of dishware before loading. This process will conserve time, water and the energy require to heat your household water supply. Your dishwasher filter system is designed to filter 100% of the water entering the spray arms to provide a continuous supply of clean water to remove food soils from your dishware.

Filter components The filter system 1j consists of three parts.

Cleaning intervals The filter system 1j is designed to minimize maintenance while providing premium cleaning performance and minimum energy consumption. Depending on use habits and water hardness, the filter system will require some maintenance to sustain premium cleaning performance.

Your filter system may need to be cleaned when: You notice food soils remaining

on the filter system or objects trapped in the Large Object Trap.

A drop in cleaning performance or a gritty film forms on the dishware.

When washing normally attached food soils that have been scraped before loading, in a household that runs the dishwasher every other day, your filter should be cleaned:

Note: Clean the filter system after washing loads with large amounts of food soils or loads with a heavy starch content, like potatoes and pasta, to maintain optimal performance.

A Large Object Trap Prevents objects that should not be placed in your dishwasher from damaging the dishwasher pump system or clogging your household drain.

B Flat Fine Filter Prevents food particles from entering the wash chamber and directs particles toward the micro filter.

C Micro Filter Directs the smallest of particles to the household plumbing drain.

Cleaning interval Usage 3-6 times a year light to average use

8-12 times a year heavy use

46

Care and Maintenance en-us

To check or clean the filter system:

1. Unscrew the Large Object Trap as illustrated and remove the entire filter system.

2. Remove the microfilter from the fine filter for easier cleaning.

en-us Troubleshooting

Dishwasher runs a long time.

Incoming water is not warm enough.

Before starting a cycle, run hot water faucet at the sink closest to the dishwasher.

Cycle time depends on wash cycle chosen and amount of soil on dishes (dishwasher sensors increase cycle times to ensure dishes are clean when heavy soil is detected).

Scrape food off of dishes and use less inten- sive wash cycles.

Rinse aid dispenser 92 is empty, or rinse aid setting = 0. Without rinse aid, wash cycle defaults to lon- gest time with most number of washes and rinses.

Add rinse aid and change rinse aid setting depending on water hardness.

St at ement o f L i mi t ed Pr oduc t War r ant y hat this Warranty Covers & Who it Applies to: The limited warranty provided by BSH Home Appliances (Bosch) in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty applies only to the Bosch appliance sold to you (Product), 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.

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 (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, chip, 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.

Extended Limited Warranty

BSH also provides these additional limited warranties: 5 year limited warranty on

electronics: BSH will repair or replace any BSH microprocessor or printed circuit board if it proves to be defective in materials or workmanship (excludes labor charges).

5 year limited warranty on dish racks: BSH will replace the upper or lower dish rack (excluding rack components), if the rack proves defective in materials or workmanship (excludes labor charges).

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 Boschs 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 the 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 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 a non-authorized service provider; Bosch will have no responsibility or liability for repairs or work performed by a non-authorized service 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
