PREPARATIONS FOR WASHING
Very little preparation is requiredbefore placing dishes,
pots, pans, etc. into the dishwasher, However, some
preparation is required:
Large solids, such as, bones, large seeds, shells, skins,
leafy vegetables, meat trimmings etc., should be
removed either by scraping into a wastebasket, or into
your food disposer.
Large amounts of any type of leftover food should
also be scraped into a wastebasket or into your food
Pots and pans that have burned-on food, the food is
blackened, should be pre-soaked and scoured. The
dishwasher cannot remove burned-on food.
Do not place the following items in the dishwasher:
> small bones and bone slivers
> paper products such as paper plates and paper
> plastic bags or plastic packaging material.
In general, try to remove food scraps and place the items
to be washed in the dishwasher before the food has had a
chance to dry-on. Dried-on food is more difficult to
remove and you may find that the DELICATE/ECONOMY
or lighter washing cycles will not provide a satisfactory
result when food has dried on.
If there will be an extended
period of time before the
dishwasher will be run it is recommended
that the RINSE
& HOLD cycle be used.
Other than the above, no special preparation or pre-rinsing
is required for dishes, pots and pans or utensils with
normal amounts of food soil.

Regular Wash Load
The dishwasher should be loaded so that water can
circulate freely and reach every part of every item that is
to be cleaned:
Cups, glasses and containers should be placed in upper
rack upside down so that water does not collect in
them. Tall narrow vessels, such as a vase or tall glass,
should be placed in the lower rack, near the middle,
for the best cleaning result.
The Bosch dishwashers have a special feature
incorporated into the flip down cup shelves on the
side of the upper rack. The ends of these shelves are
specially formed to help maintain spacing between
stemmed glasses. When in the flipped down position
long stemmed glasses may be placed in the second
row from the edge and placed so their stems rest in
the "V" formed ends of the shelves. When the cup
shelves are in the up position long stemmed glasses
may be placed in the first row with their stems placed
to rest between the tooth like projections of the
China, crystal and other delicate items must be placed
so that they do not touch each other during dishwasher
operation. Chipping or other damage may occur.
