Q:Why does Bosch make basic functions of a dishwasher only available via a phone App? Delay start is not available and I think it is poor product description here that does not indicate you cannot use the feature without a 3rd party device, like an iPhone.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for your question. As custom panel units are intended to be able to match any unique kitchen cabinet setup, we do not specify a size. Requirements are that the panel be no thicker than 3/4", and weigh between 7 and 24lbs. Thank you!

          Q:I have the stainless steel version. The "Preventing material damage" section only recommends what NOT to use to clean the outside of the unit since it's anti-fingerprint. So what can I use to clean the outside? Thanks.

          Answer This Question

          A:  Hi Bartha, thank you for your question. To clean the exterior of your dishwasher, we recommend using a damp cloth to wipe the door seals. For stainless steel surfaces, use lukewarm water and mild soap with a soft cloth, wiping in the direction of the steel grain. If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to our customer care team at 1-800-944-2904. Thank you for choosing Bosch.

              Q:Is there a light that comes on and stays on when the cycle is complete and the dishes are clean? I've read reviews of some Bosch dishwashers that say their new appliance has a light that comes on and then goes off.

                Q:I currently am looking to replace an old GE front control dish washer. Will the 800 series, top control, replace it without any major fit problems? Also, are top control dishwashers subject to damage from counter top spills?

                Answer This Question

                A:  Hi Beef55, thanks for your question and interest in Bosch dishwashers. When replacing any appliance, we recommend referring to the model's Product Specification Sheet and Installation Manual to determine the required cutout sizes. The cutout dimensions needed for model # SHP78CM5N are available here: rebrand.ly/7pt1pl0. On top-control models, it would be difficult for spills to reach the control panel because it is hidden beneath the countertop once the door is closed. Installation should be performed by a qualified installer to ensure safety and proper operation. Feel free to contact Bosch Customer Support at 1-800-944-2904 for real-time assistance if you have additional product inquiries. Thank you!
