Bosch dishwashers automatically wash and sanitize your dishes, allowing you to keep your kitchen clean with less effort. The under-the-counter design allows the dishwashers to blend seamlessly into your kitchen, often beside the sink. The appliances offer several options, such as a delayed start, delicate wash and quick wash. The dishwasher controls are located either on the front of the door, or inside of the top of the door, depending on model, however all models operate in the same manner.
Load your dishes in the dishwasher, being sure to not over crowd the racks so that water can not flow through. Pre-rinse any stuck-on food or tough stains.
Dispense the dish-washing detergent into the detergent cup on the door, then close and secure the lid. Close the dishwasher door, ensuring that you hear a click when you are ready to begin the wash cycle. If your dishwasher controls are located on the top of the door, close the door after you have entered all of your settings.
Press the "Power" button, located on the left side of the control panel to turn on the dishwasher.
Select the wash cycle that you would like to use. Many models include wash cycles such as "Power Scrub," "Quick Wash," "Glass Care" and "Regular Wash." In most cases, "Regular Wash" is the appropriate setting.
Select any additional settings that you would like to use, such as "Sanitize."
Press the "Start" button to begin the wash cycle. Alternatively, press the "Delay Start" buttons to set your dishwasher to start at a later time, such as in the middle of the night. After the cycle has completed, the dishwasher will automatically turn off.
