Bosh Dishwaher Self Test
« on: December 27, 2009, 07:58:56 PM »

I have found several places on the web that describe how to start the Bosch DW self test but I cannot seem to get it to run on my SHV 4803.

To start test program, I press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button.

Then I can test all the indicator lights by pressing the buttons - OK so far.

To start testing, I pressed both POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH buttons a second time - and I assume at this point I have to close the door and latch it, correct?

How long does it take for the self test to complete? I wait and nothing seems to happen but maybe I'm not waiting long enough?

"HINT: Dishwasher test programs heat water to 150F,
so test programs will generally run > 20 minutes
for incoming water temperatures ~ 120F."
