equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor. Check with a qualified electrician or authorized service representative if you are in doubt whether the appliance is properly grounded.

1.6Safe use Follow these safety instructions when using the appliance.

WARNING To reduce the risk of serious injury, observe the following. Read all instructions before using this dishwasher. Use this dishwasher only for its intended function, which is the wash-

ing of household dishware and kitchenware rated as dishwasher safe. Only use detergents or rinsing agents recommended for use in a dish-

washer, and keep them out of the reach of children. Do not abuse, sit or stand on the door or dish racks of the dishwasher.

WARNING 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.

WARNING To avoid risk of electric shock, observe the following. Only use the appliance in enclosed residential space according to the

installation manual. Never expose the appliance to intense heat or humidity. Do not use any steam cleaners or high-pressure cleaners to clean this

appliance. If not followed, excess moisture can accumulate.

WARNING To avoid risk of injury, when loading items to be washed, observe the fol- lowing. 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. Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked "dishwasher safe"

or the equivalent. For plastic items not so marked, check the manufac- turer's recommendations. Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are in

place. Do not tamper with or override controls and interlocks.

WARNING For safe care and operation of your appliance, observe the following. Follow the safety instructions and directions for use on the detergent

and rinse aid product labels. Do not use harsh chemicals such as bleach-based products to clean

your dishwasher. Some bleach-based products can damage your dish- washer and may present health hazards! 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. To avoid floor damage and possible mold growth, do not allow wet ar-

eas to remain around or under the dishwasher.

NOTICE: Water and power shut off It is highly recommended for the end user to become familiar with the

procedure 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.

3Environmental protection and energy-saving

Environmental protection and energy-saving

3.1Saving energy If you follow these instructions, your appliance will use less power and water.

Use the Normal program. a The Normal program is energy-

efficient and environmentally friendly.  "Dishwasher Cycles", Page 13

3.2AquaSensor The AquaSensor is an optical measuring device (light barrier) which measures the turbidity of the washing water. You can save water with the AquaSensor. The operation of the AquaSensor depends on the selected cycle. If the soiling level is high, the wash- ing water is drained off and re- placed with fresh water. If the soil- ing level is lower, the washing wa- ter is used in the next rinse, so re- ducing water consumption by 3-6 liters. In the Auto cycles the tem- perature and run time are addi- tionally adjusted to the level of soiling.

5.1Energy Guide The Energy Guide label was based on the Normal soil sensing cycle. The unit was tested without any rinse aid (liquid) in the rinse aid dispenser. A single dose of deter- gent was inserted into the deter- gent dispenser, with no detergent being used in the prewash. The unit was not subjected to trun- cated testing per the definitions in the test procedure. We recom- mend that dish loads such as the one in the energy certification test have the rack position set in the highest position. Recommended for daily, regular or typical use to completely wash a full load of nor- mally soiled dishes.

5.2Favorite With this function, you can save a combination of a Cycle and an Option. You can save the selected Cycle and Option combination via the Home Connect app or on the ap- pliance.

Modern, powerful detergents mainly use a low-alkaline formula- tion with enzymes. Enzymes break down starch and remove protein. Oxygen-based bleaching

agents are generally used to re- move colored stains, e.g. tea or ketchup. Note: Follow the manufacturer's instructions for each detergent. Detergent Description Tabs Tabs are perfect for

all cleaning functions and do not need to be measured out. However, with shorter Cycles  Page 13 some- times tabs do not dissolve entirely and leave residues of de- tergent. This may re- duce its effective- ness.

Powder detergent

Powder detergent is recommended for shorter cycles. The dosage can be ad- justed to the level of soiling.

Liquid de- tergent

Liquid detergent works faster and is recommended for shorter cycles with- out a pre-rinse. Sometimes liquid detergent may leak out despite the de- tergent dispenser being closed. This is not a problem, just remember the fol- lowing: Only choose a cy-

cle without Pre- Rinse.

Do not use the Delay Start op- tion.

The dosage can be adjusted to the level of soiling.

11.2Incompatible detergents

Do not use a detergent which is not designated for dishwasher use or contains chlorine. Detergent Description Liquid hand soap

Liquid hand soap can cause increased froth- ing and dam- age the appli- ance.

Detergent con- taining chlorine

This may leave chlorine residue on dishware.

11.3Information on Detergent

Follow the instructions on deter- gents in everyday use. Detergents marked as "ecologi-

cal" (environmentally friendly) generally contain lower levels of active agents or none at all. The cleaning effect may be re- duced.

Adjust the rinse aid and the wa- ter softening system settings in accordance with the detergent or combination detergent in use.

According to manufacturers, combination detergents with salt replacement substances can only be used up to a cer- tain water hardness, usually 26 E, without adding special salt. For the best washing and dry- ing results we recommend us- ing special salt from a water hardness of 17 E.

Any rinse aid component of a combination detergent has lim- ited effectiveness. You will have better results using a sep- arate rinse aid.

To prevent sticking, only touch detergents in a water-soluble pouch with dry hands and only ever place them in a dry deter- gent dispenser.

Even if the rinse aid and spe- cial salt refill indicators light up, the wash cycles will run prop- erly with combination deter- gents.

Use tablets with enhanced dry- ing results.

11.4Adding Detergent 1. To open the detergent dis-

penser, press the locking latch. 2. Add the detergent to the dry

detergent dispenser. 3 tbsp (45 ml)

1.75 tbsp (25 ml)

1 tbsp (15 ml)

If you are using tablets, one is enough. Insert the tablets in a horizontal position. If you are using powder or liq- uid detergent, follow the manu- facturer's instructions and quantities for dosage in the de- tergent dispenser. 1.5 to 1.75 Tbsp (20 ml 25 ml) detergent is sufficient for normal soiling. If dishware is only lightly soiled, slightly less than the amount of detergent specified is usually sufficient.

3. Close the lid of the detergent dispenser.

a The lid clicks into position. a The detergent dispenser will

open automatically at the opti- mum time during the cycle. Powder or liquid detergent will spread around the washing tank and dissolve there. Tablets will fall into the tablet collecting tray and dissolve in the right dosage. In order to en- sure that tablets can dissolve evenly, do not place any other objects in the tablet collecting tray.

12Dishware Dishware

Only wash dishware that is suit- able for dishwashers. Note: Decorated glassware and parts made of aluminum or silver may fade or discolor with dish- washing. Delicate types of glass may turn cloudy after a few wash cycles.

12.1Damage to glass and dishware

Only put glasses and china in the dishwasher if they are labeled dishwasher-safe. Avoid damage to glass and dishware. Cause Recommenda-

tion The following types of dishes are not dish- washer-safe: Wooden

utensils and dishes

Decorative glassware, antique dishes and artistic hand- made pottery

Plastic parts that are not heat-resis- tant

Dishes made from copper or tin

Dishes soiled with ash, wax, grease or paint

Very small items of dishware

Only put dishes in the dish- washer if they are labeled dishwasher- safe.

The chemical composition of the detergent causes dam- age.

Use a deter- gent labeled as gentle to dishes.

Dishwareen-us

25

Cause Recommenda- tion

Highly caustic alkaline or highly acidic cleaning solu- tions, in partic- ular commer- cial or industrial cleaners, are not safe to use in the dish- washer with aluminum.

If you use highly caustic alkaline or highly acidic cleaning solu- tions, in partic- ular commer- cial or industrial cleaners, do not put any- thing aluminum in the dish- washer.

The water tem- perature of the cycle is too high.

Select a cycle with lower tem- peratures. After the cycle has ended, take glassware and silverware out of the appli- ance without delay.

The water tem- perature of the cycle is too high and the water is too soft.

Select a cycle with lower tem- peratures. Use detergent with glass pro- tection. Adjust the wa- ter hardness setting on your dishwasher.  "Setting the water softening system", Page 19

12.2Loading dishware Arrange dishware correctly to opti- mize the dishwashing result and prevent damage to both dishware

and the appliance. The noise level may also vary depending on the items placed in your dishwasher.

NOTICE: Avoid dishwasher damage Do not load the dishwasher

with paper products, plastic bags, packing materials or any- thing other than normal, dish- washer safe dishware and kitchenware.

Tips Using the appliance allows you

to save energy and water com- pared to doing dishes by hand.

See our website for examples of how to load your appliance efficiently.

To save energy and water, load the machine with the number of place settings specified (stan- dard load with dishes and sil- verware).

For better washing and drying results, position items with curves or recesses at an angle so water can run off.

1. Remove large remnants of food from dishware. To save resources, do not pre- rinse dishware under running water.

2. Observe the following when ar- ranging dishware:

en-usDishware

26

Put heavily soiled dishware in the lower rack, e.g. pans. The more powerful spray jet ensures that the dishwashing result will be better.

To avoid damage to dish- ware, arrange it so it is sta- ble and cannot tip over.

To avoid injury, arrange sil- verware with the points and sharp edges facing down.

Position containers with the openings facing down so no water can collect in them.

Do not block the spray arms - make sure that they can turn freely.

Do not place small parts in the collecting tray and do not block it with dishware so as not to obstruct the lid of the detergent dispenser.

12.3Removing dishware

CAUTION Dishes can be very hot immedi- ately after the cycle ends. Open the door slightly and al-

low dishes to cool for a few minutes before unloading.

1. To prevent water dripping onto dishware, unload it starting at the bottom and working up.

2. Check the washing tank and accessories for soiling and clean if necessary.  "Cleaning and maintenance", Page 34

Issue Cause and troubleshooting Wipeable or water- soluble coatings in- side the appliance or on the door.

Special salt dispenser is not screwed tight. Screw the special salt dispenser tight.

There are stubborn white coatings on the dishware, inside the appliance or on the door.

There is detergent residue. These coatings can- not generally be removed with chemicals. Change your Detergent. Scrub the appliance by hand. Hardness range is set incorrectly or the water hardness is too high. Set the Water softening system to the water

hardness or add special salt. 3in1/organic/eco detergent is not effective enough. Set the Water softening system to the water

hardness and use separate detergents (name brand, special salt, rinse aid).

Too little detergent is being used. Increase the amount of detergent used or

change Detergent . Selected wash cycle is too light. Select a more intensive wash program.

Tea residue or lip- stick marks on dish- ware.

Dishwashing temperature is too low. Select a program with a higher dishwashing

temperature. Too little detergent is being used or is unsuitable. Use a suitable Detergent and follow the manu-

facturer's instructions for the amount to be used.

Dishware has been precleaned too intensively. Then the sensors choose a lighter cycle. Stub- born remnants cannot be entirely removed. Only remove large remnants of food and do not

pre-rinse dishware. There are colored coatings (blue, yel- low, brown) inside the appliance or on stainless steel dish- ware that are diffi- cult or impossible to remove.

The formation of films is due to substances con- tained in vegetables (cabbage, celery, potatoes, noodles, etc.) or tap water (manganese). Clean the appliance.

You can remove coatings with Mechanical cleaning  Page 34 or a machine cleaning product. It may not always be possible to com- pletely remove coatings but they are harmless to health.

Glasses are not dishwasher-proof, only suitable for dishwashers. Use dishwasher-proof glasses.

Glasses are usually only suitable for cleaning in a dishwasher, i.e. long-term wear or long- term changes must be expected.

Avoid a lengthy steam phase (standing time af- ter wash cycle ends).

Use a program with a lower temperature. Set the softening system to the water hard-

ness.  "Setting the water softening system", Page 19

Use detergent with a glass protection compo- nent.

Detergent residue is present in the deter- gent dispenser or the tab collecting tray.

Spray arms were blocked by dishware so deter- gent was not rinsed out. Check that the spray arms are not blocked and

can rotate freely. Detergent dispenser was damp when detergent was added. Only add detergent to the detergent dispenser

when dry. Excessive formation of foam occurs.

Hand soap got in the rinse aid dispenser. Immediately add rinse aid to the dispenser.

STATEMENT OF LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY

21.1What this warranty covers & Who it applies to

The limited warranty provided by BSH Home Appliances (Bosch) in this Statement of Limited Prod- uct Warranty applies only to the

1 Depending on the appliance specifications

en-usSTATEMENT OF LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY

54

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 pur- poses.

New at retail from a BSH au- thorized dealer or directly from BSH (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 ap- ply 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 register your Product; 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.

21.2How long the warranty lasts

Bosch warrants that the Product is free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of three hundred and sixty-five (365) days from the date of the original deliv- ery. The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of the original delivery, 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 ma- terial 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 delivery or closing date for new construc- tion. This cosmetic warranty ex- cludes slight color variations due to inherent differences in painted and porcelain parts, as well as dif- ferences caused by kitchen light- ing, product location, or other sim- ilar factors. This cosmetic war- ranty specifically excludes any display, floor, As Is, or B stock appliances.

21.3Extended Warranty BSH also provides these addi- tional limited warranties: 5 year limited warranty on elec-

tronics: BSH will repair or re- place any BSH microprocessor or printed circuit board if it proves to be defective in mate- rials or workmanship (excludes labor charges).

STATEMENT OF LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTYen-us

21.4Repair/replace as your exclusive remedy

During this warranty period, Bosch or one of its authorized ser- vice providers will repair your Product without charge to you (subject to certain limitations stated herein) if your Product proves to have been manufac- tured with a defect in materials or workmanship. If reasonable at- tempts to repair the Product have been made without success, then Bosch will replace your Product (upgraded models may be avail- able to you, in Boschs sole dis- cretion, 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 com- ponents shall become the prop- erty 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 au- thorized 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-au- thorized service provider; Bosch will have no responsibility or liabil- ity for damage resulting from re- pairs or work performed by a non- authorized service provider. Au- thorized service providers are those persons or companies that have been specially trained on Bosch products, and who pos-

sess, in Bosch's opinion, a supe- rior reputation for customer ser- vice and technical ability (note that they are independent entities and are not agents, partners, affili- ates or representatives of Bosch). Nevertheless, taking your product to be serviced by a repair shop that is not affiliated with or an au- thorized dealer of Bosch will not void this warranty. Also, using third-party parts will not void this warranty. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bosch will not incur any liability, or have responsibility, for the Product if it is located in a re- mote area (more than 100 miles from an authorized service provider) or is reasonably inac- cessible, hazardous, threatening, or treacherous locale, surround- ings, or environment; in any such event, if you request, Bosch would still pay for labor and parts and ship the parts to the nearest au- thorized service provider, but you would still be fully liable and re- sponsible for any travel time or other special charges by the ser- vice company, assuming they agree to make the service call. Further, to the extent you have in- stalled the Product in a difficult-to- access location or have otherwise installed temporary or permanent fixtures that create barriers to ac- cessing or removing the Product, Bosch will not incur any liability for, or have responsibility, for work or costs associated with moving the Product or otherwise creating access to the Product in order to repair or replace it. All such costs shall be your sole responsibility.

21.5Out of warranty product

Bosch is under no obligation, at law or otherwise, to provide you with any concessions, including

Also excluded from this war- ranty are Products, on which the serial numbers have been altered, defaced, or removed; service vis- its to teach you how to use the Product, or visits where there is nothing wrong with the Product; correction of installation problems (you are solely responsible for any structure and setting for the Prod- uct, including all electrical, plumb- ing or other connecting facilities, for proper foundation/flooring, and for any alterations including with- out limitation cabinetry, walls, floors, shelving, etc.); and reset- ting of breakers or fuses TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, THIS WARRANTY SETS OUT YOUR EXCLUSIVE REME- DIES WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCT, WHETHER THE CLAIM ARISES IN CONTRACT

ANY WARRANTY IM- PLIED BY LAW, WHETHER FOR MERCHANTABILITY OR FIT- NESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE EFFECTIVE ONLY FOR THE PERIOD THAT THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EFFECTIVE. IN NO EVENT WILL THE MANUFACTURER BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDI- RECT, "BUSINESS LOSS", AND/ OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, LOSSES, OR EXPENSES, IN- CLUDING WITHOUT LIMITA- TION TIME AWAY FROM WORK, HOTELS AND/OR RESTAURANT MEALS, REMODELLING EX- PENSES IN EXCESS OF DI- RECT DAMAGES WHICH ARE DEFINITIVELY CAUSED EXCLU- SIVELY BY BOSCH, OR OTHER- WISE.
