To avoid floor damage and possible mold growth, do not allow wet areas to remain around or under the dishwasher.

WARNING: CHILD SAFETY Keep detergents or rinsing agents out of the reach of children. To reduce risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher. Do not allow children to handle or play near knives and sharp utensils. When children become old enough to operate the appliance, it is the

responsibility of the parents/legal guardians to ensure the children are instructed in safe practices by qualified persons.

CAUTION When loading items to be washed:

Locate sharp items so they are not likely to damage the door seal. Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked dishwasher safe or

the equivalent. Otherwise, check the manufacturers recommendations. Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are in place.

Do not tamper with or override controls and interlocks. Dishes can be very hot immediately after cycle ends. Open the door slightly

and allow dishes to cool for a few minutes before unloading. This dishwasher is intended for use up to a maximum altitude of 13,000 ft

(4,000 meters) above sea level. Use only detergents or rinsing agents recommended for use in a dishwasher.

WARNING End of Life Disposal - Remove the dishwasher door to the washing compart-

ment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding.

NOTICE It is highly recommended for the end user to become familiar with the pro-

cedure to shut off the incoming water supply and the procedure to shut off the incoming power supply. See the Installation Instructions or contact your installer for more information.

CAUSES OF DAMAGE Detergent will destroy the water softening system! Never pour detergent

into the salt dispenser. To avoid oversudsing or clogging, do not overfill the rinse aid dispenser.

Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth. Do not allow water to remain in your dishwasher systems through extended

periods of freezing temperatures. Freezing temperatures can damage the water fill valve and potentially other components of your dishwasher.

Never use steam cleaning products to clean your dishwasher. The manufac- turer will not be responsible for the possible damages or consequences.

Do not use harsh chemicals, bleach-based wipes, abrasive cleaners, scour- ing pads (metal or plastic), or abrasive cloths/paper towels to clean your dishwashers exterior door panel. These could damage your dishwashers exterior door panel.

Do not load the dishwasher with paper products, plastic bags, packing materi- als or anything other than normal, dishwasher safe dishware and kitchenware.

This Quick Start and Safety Guide explains the basics of operating your dishwasher and those safety measures that must be followed. For complete product information refer to the Use and Care Manual available online at

Safety Definitions: WARNING: This indicates that death or serious injuries may occur as a result of non-observance of this warning.

CAUTION: This indicates that minor or moderate injuries may occur as a result of non-observance of this warning.

NOTICE: This indicates that damage to the appliance or property may occur as a result of non-compliance with this advisory.

WARNING: TIP OVER HAZARD! Dishwasher must be installed immediately and secured with mounting brackets to avoid tip over. A child can tip the dish- washer and be seriously injured if the door is opened before it is installed. (see Installation Guide for instructions)

WARNING: SAFE OPERATION Use this dishwasher only for its intended function, which is the washing of

household dishware and kitchenware rated as dishwasher safe. DISHWASHER MUST BE ELECTRONICALLY GROUNDED. See Installation

Guide for instructions. The sharp points and edges of knives and other sharp utensils can cause

serious injury. Load knives and other sharp utensils with edges down. To avoid risk of injury, always use caution when opening the door during or

following a wash cycle as hot water or steam may escape. Do not fully open the door until water noises have stopped and steam has subsided.

Misuse of the dishwasher can result in serious injury or death. Do not use the dishwasher in any way not covered in the Use and Care Manual or for any purpose other than those explained in the following pages.

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

Use caution when removing parts for cleaning as some debris may be sharp. Do not abuse, sit or stand on the door or dish racks of the dishwasher. 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.

RISK OF EXPLOSION - 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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q: Why is food left on dishes?

A: It is possible the dishes do not have adequate clearance between them. Also, be sure nothing is blocking spray arm and that the filter is clean. Select an intensive cleaning cycle.

Q: Why does the cycle run a long time?

A: 1. Sensors in the dishwasher automatically increase the cycle time to ensure a good wash when heavy soil is detected.

2. Incoming water may not be hot enough and dishwasher has to heat it.

Q: Why is E:XX (X can be any number) displayed?

A: This is an error code. For example, E:22 indicates there is water in the sump because the filter is blocked or needs cleaning. See the Use and Care Manual for a list of error codes.

What this Warranty Covers & Who it Applies to: The limited warranty provided by BSH Home Appliances Corporation(BSH) in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty applies only to the Bosch dishwasher (Product)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 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 BSH to notify you in the unlikely event of a safety notice or product recall.

How Long the Warranty Lasts BSH 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 purchase. The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of purchase, and shall not be stalled, tolled, extended, or sus- pended, 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.

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). 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. Boschs 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 an un-authorized servicer; Bosch will have no responsibility or liability for repairs or work performed by a non-authorized servicer. If you choose to have someone other than an authorized service provider work on your Product, THIS WARRANTY WILL AUTOMATICALLY BECOME NULL AND VOID. Authorized service providers are those persons or companies that have been specially trained on Bosch products, and who possess, in Boschs 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 responsibil- ity, for the Product if it is located in a remote area (more than 100 miles from an authorized service provider) or is 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.
