Bosch offers a one-year dishwasher warranty that covers the costs of replacements and repairs. There’s also a Bosch appliance service plan you can use after the original warranty expires. While the warranties are handy, the manufacturer has limitations and exclusions you need to be aware of.


Key insights

  • Bosch offers a one-year warranty on the entire appliance for parts and labor.
  • The appliance service plan can add extra coverage and extend the warranty.
  • The warranty does have varying limitations and exclusions.

Bosch dishwasher warranty coverage and plans

The warranty on your Bosch dishwasher lasts up to 12 months for parts and labor. After the first year, you can still receive coverage for up to five years on specific dishwasher components. This includes the printed circuit board, microprocessor and racks. The company also provides a lifetime warranty on rust-through on the inner tub liner.

Bosch offers an extended warranty, simply called the Appliance Service Plan. You can purchase it before or after the warranty expires and choose a plan for one, two or four years after your original warranty has expired.

Limits and exclusions

Bosch includes many limitations for its dishwasher warranties. The warranty excludes:

  • Non-motor parts, including baskets, handles, drawers and shelves
  • Breakdowns due to rust or corrosion
  • Breakdowns from accidents and misuse
  • Repairs done by anyone other than a Bosch service technician
  • Residents 100 miles or more from an authorized service provider

How to register a Bosch dishwasher

To register a Bosch dishwasher, you'll need to create a MyBosch account. Go to the registration page and click the “Log In or Register" button. Once you’re logged in, click on “Register Here” and fill in the form. You’ll need your model number (E-Nr), FD number and delivery date to complete the form.

How to file a claim for your Bosch dishwasher

Bosch dishwasher warranty cost

The original warranty cost is included in the sale price when you buy your dishwasher. You’ll need to pay for the extended warranty, though. The price for this coverage varies, but the company offers a plan for paying over time. There may also be a deductible for each claim you file.

Bosch dishwasher warranty vs. home warranty alternatives

Some people choose a home warranty for their dishwasher rather than an extended warranty. Like with the Bosch extended warranty, a home warranty’s coverage starts the day your manufacturer’s warranty runs out. Coverage with both also begins 30 days after the plan purchase.

The difference is a home warranty covers more than just your dishwasher. It covers most major appliances and systems in your home, like refrigerators, washers, dryers, AC units and stoves. Generally, you can expect to pay more for a home warranty since it covers more things around your home.
