Instructions for Bosch Dishwashers

Updated February 21, 2017

Bosch is a German technology company based in Gerlingen, near Stuttgart. The company makes a vast range of consumer electronics, auto parts and power tools, along with other home products. Bosch dishwashers are similar in appearance to most other models of home dishwasher on the market today. You will need to know how to load, program and switch on your Bosch dishwasher before you can start cleaning your dishes. Allow roughly five minutes for this task.

Open your Bosch dishwasher and pull out the lower drawer. Scrape off excess food remains from large items like dishes and bowls and place them in the rack. Dishes should face the centre of the rack, while bowls or other items likely to collect water should be facedown. Load cutlery into the basket so the soiled ends stick out the top.

Load mugs, cups and glasses into the top drawer, facedown. Lay any suitable cooking utensils flat on the top drawer. Make sure no items in the top or bottom drawer interfere with the spin arms beneath the top and bottom drawers.

Open the detergent dispenser located on the inside of the dishwasher door by pressing the small plastic tab on the right of the cover. Add between 1 and 3 tbsp of detergent or a pre-measured dishwasher tablet. Although 1 tbsp will clean most loads, use more for heavier, dirtier loads.

Press the "ON/OFF" switch on the control panel. The previous cycle will flash on the screen along with the estimated time the cycle will take. Change the cycle, if necessary, by pressing one of the cycle buttons next to the digital display. If you do not select a cycle, the previous wash instructions will be repeated.

Close the dishwasher door. The cycle will begin automatically. If you forget an item, open the door slightly to interrupt the cycle and allow steam to clear. Press the "ON/OFF" button and load your missing items. Close the door and press "ON/OFF" again. The cycle will resume from where it was interrupted.
