We just got our dishwasher. We love it already, but the instruction manual does not give us what the symbols mean for the different cycles. We don't know what they mean. Can you tell us or can we get something that will tell us. Thanks.

Just installed a CDW60W16 at my daughters house. worked ok empty but as soon as it was loaded the glass icon lit up and beebs. when I turned it over to take a look at the float switch I noticed that the levelling legs were all screwed in so the base of the machine was sitting on the floor. so when the machine was loaded the pressure switch operated as it was being pushed up by the floor. I unscrewed the legs a few turns to allow an air gap between the floor and base of the machine and all working fine now. on checking the installation instructions it only mentions loosening the legs to level it if required which is wasn't. maybe the manual should give instructions to unscrew the legs a few turns to prevent this
That symbol means that the dishwasher is heating the water, bringing it up to the required temperature to properly sanitize your dishes.
This symbol can appear during the wash and rinse cycles. It is nothing to worry about. Most dishwasher will heat up the wash and rinse water, it's just that Bosch decided to add an indicator, so users would know that any delay in the wash/rinse cycle, is a result of getting the water up to the proper temperature (typically around 140 degrees F)
Even if you've got your hot water heater or hot water supply set to a very low temperature, the dishwasher will use the built-in heating element (the drying element in the bottom of the dishwasher) to heat the water.
If you have already emptied the drawer and it continues to happen then it means you need to have a tech out to replace the "flap". The flap prevents water from re-entering the drawer unit, when water isn't able to empty it means the flap needs to be replaced which is a common problem with these models. It occurs when you are considered a "heavy" user as well as someone who rarely uses their unit (someone in a vacation rental).
