A Bosch dishwasher user manual includes a list of the dishwasher's components, a setup guide, cycle information, operating instructions, and care and maintenance procedures. A warranty card and contact information for Bosch is also included.
There can be as many as three different kinds of Bosch dishwasher manuals for a given unit: a user manual, an installation guide and a supplementary guide for error codes. The installation guide gives instructions for correctly installing and hooking up the dishwasher. Installation should only be performed by a trained professional, as it requires direct connections to the house's plumbing and electrical systems.
The user manual should be read by everyone who operates the dishwasher to familiarize everyone with the correct operating procedures. Most Bosch dishwashers have different cycles for different types of loads, and it is also important for the user to know the correct amount of detergent to use. The user guide also illustrates the correct way to load the dishwasher to ensure all objects are thoroughly cleaned every time.
Certain models may have an internal clock that can be programmed to automatically start the dishwasher at specific times.
The supplementary guide serves as a troubleshooting guide in the event that something goes wrong. If the dishwasher detects a problem, it displays an error code, which can be quickly referenced in the supplementary guide.
