How to Replace the Filter on a Dishwasher - Bosch

A working filter ensures that your dishwasher can continue to run and wash your plates effectively, as it prevents large food particles from getting to the wash pump. If you find your dishwasher is not draining the water away, it could be due to a damaged filter allowing food waste to collect and clog the drainage channel.   

Changing the filter on your dishwasher is fairly simple, but if you’re unsure our article below is sure to answer your questions and guide you through the process.

This video shows an example on how to remove or replace the part on a typical machine, some models may be different but the procedure should be similar.

What You Will Need:

Step 1 - Safety Advice

Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.

Step 2 - Find The Correct Filter For Your Model

Like most dishwashers, Bosch filters come in three parts. We have an inner coarse filter, a mesh filter and finally a very fine mesh filter. All of these parts are supplied as one replacement and you can find the correct filter for your model on our website.

Step 3 - Remove The Faulty Filter

We’re going to start by removing the lower dishwasher basket and spray arm. The first two parts of the filter should simply twist and pull out. You need to remove the metal mesh plate, which you can replace if required from the eSpares site. You can finish by removing the fine mesh filter with is usually accompanied by a small amount of water.
