Before using for the first time
Before using for the first time
Before using for the first time please
note the following points:
Setting the water softener.
The water softener must be set to correspond to the water hardness in your
area. This can be obtained from your
local water company, or by using a test
kit that can be purchased from the Miele
Parts Department (part no. 0014619).
The salt reservoir must only be filled
with water and salt. Never fill it with
detergent.
Adding rinse aid.
Inadvertently filling the rinse aid
reservoir with liquid or powder detergent will damage the reservoir.
Only use detergents and rinse aids formulated for domestic dishwashers.
Add the correct amount of detergent.
Follow the recommendations on page
26 to determine how much detergent to
use. Not enough or too much detergent
can lead to poor wash results.
Overdosing, in combination with soft
water and high water temperatures,
can lead to cloudy glassware.
Cleaning results vary from brand to
brand. If you are not satisfied with the
results from one brand, try another
quality brand before contacting the
Miele Service Department for advice.
It is important to choose the correct
programme.
Different wash programmes should be
selected for different loads and different degrees of soiling. See the programme chart for further programme
descriptions.
When the dishwasher is run for the
first time, the selected programme
will not start for approximately 7
minutes.
During these 7 minutes, the Water
softener reactivation programme is
run, and the 8 k indicator lamp
will be on.
Load the dishes correctly.
Load the dishes so that water can contact all surfaces. Ensure that the spray
arms are not blocked by items which
are too tall for the basket or which extend through the bottom of the basket.
If necessary, manually rotate the spray
arms to test for clearance.
The combination filter in the base of
the wash cabinet and the spray arms
must be kept clean.
The spray arms and the filters should
be periodically checked and cleaned if
necessary.
See the corresponding chapters for detailed information on the above points.

Water Softener
Water Softener
If the water hardness in your area
is under 150 ppm (mg/l) you
should not activate the built-in
water softener with salt. This
could lead to problems including
cloudy glassware.
The water hardness in your area can
be obtained from your local water
company or by using a test kit that
can be purchased from the Miele
Parts Department (part no. 0014619).
If your water hardness is above
150 ppm (mg/l), the water should
be softened to avoid the build up of
calcium deposits on dishes, cutlery
and in the dishwasher.
The dishwasher is factory set for a hardness level of 20 - 70 ppm (mg/l). If your
water is harder or softer, the setting will
need to be adjusted.
To ensure a steady supply of softened water, the built in water softener must be:

Water Softener
Programming the water hardness
The Programme touch pads are used
to set the water hardness. Each pad
can be used alone (level 1) or in combination with the “Top Solo”pad (level 2)
to programme the hardness to the
valve determined using the Programming Table on the previous page.
For example, to set a level 1 value
(from 20 - 220 ppm (mg/l)), only a numbered Touch pad will have to be
pressed.
To programme a level 2 value (from 230
- 1260 ppm (mg/l)), both the “Top Solo”
pad and a numbered Touch pad will
have to pressed.
12
The “8 k” indicator lamp will flash
as long as you are in the programming
mode.
Water Softener
To programme the water hardness,
proceed as follows:
Open the door.
Turn off the dishwasher.
Press and hold buttons b and d
while simultaneously turning on the
dishwasher. The “ON” indicator lamp
will light and the “8 k”and c
lamps will flash.
The “8 k” indicator lamp will
flash as long as you are in the programming mode.
If any other indicator lamps flash, turn
off the dishwasher and start again.
Depending upon what “Additional Features” are currently programmed into
your machine, other indicator lamps
may also illuminate. These should be ignored for the time being.
Press Touch pad c to enter the data
entry mode. The c indicator lamp will
stop flashing and go out. (Exception: if
a hardness level of 90 -110 ppm
(mg/l) has been set previously , the c
indicator lamp will stop flashing and remain lit).
A)If your Water hardness is 220 ppm
(mg/l) or less, press the touch pad
that corresponds to the level you
want to set (see the Programming
Table on the previous page). As long
as the selected pad is depressed, its
indicator lamp will remain lit. When
the touch pad is released, the c
lamp will once again flash.
OR
B) If your Water hardness is greater than
220 ppm (mg/l), press 2 to access
programme level 2 first (its indicator
will light), then press the required
numeric touch pad. Once the numeric
pad is released, the c will once again
flash.
Example:
If the water hardness is 450 ppm (mg/l),
press 2 first, then press the e touch
pad. When e is released, the c indicator will flash.
Press 2 once to enter the setting; its
indicator will light up.
Press 2 once more to store the setting in memory. The 2 indicator will

Filling the salt reservoir.
The salt reservoir should be filled before the first use and whenever the
“8 k” indicator lamp lights up. Use
water softener reactivation salt
(1 - 4mm grain size), as other salts may
contain insoluble additives which can
impair the functioning of the softener
and settle on glassware.
We recommend “Somat” salt (2kg) available from Miele (article no. 21997603).
The salt reservoir holds approx. 2 kg
(4 lbs) of salt.
Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir
with dishwashing detergent will
damage the water softener. Make
sure that only water softener reactivation salt of the proper grain size is
used
Before filling the salt reservoir for
the first time:
Fill the salt reservoir with approximately 2 litres (2 qts) of water.
Place the funnel (provided) over the
salt reservoir.
Remove the lower basket.
Carefully fill with salt. As it is filled,
water will run out .
Unscrew and remove the salt reservoir cap.
Clean any excess salt from the
threads of the reservoir opening.
Screw the cap on firmly.
Run the UNIVERSAL programme immediately to remove any traces of
salt from the cabinet.
16
Water Softener
Salt indicator.
Bypassing the Salt indicator lamp.
In order to bypass the salt indicator
lamp, you will need a screwdriver and
needle nose pliers.
Remove ONLY the salt reservoir cap.
Looking into the salt reservoir, you will
see the top of the float chamber on the
right hand side b.
When the salt reservoir is empty, the
“8 k” indicator lamp will light, notifying you that the reservoir should be refilled with reactivation salt.
Once filled, the dishwasher will automatically reactivate the softener when
necessary. The “8 k” indicator lamp
will light up whenever the reactivation
process is being performed.
Note:
If the water used is very soft (below 150
ppm (mg/l)), further softening is not required and the “8 k” indicator
lamp will remain lit. It can be disregarded or bypassed using the following procedure.
The “8 k” button has also been designed for future programme updates
(PC). See the “After Sales Service” section for further details.
Using a screwdriver, carefully pivot
the float chamber towards the center
of the reservoir.
Using the needle nose pliers, first
pull the cap c off of the float chamber, then remove the float d.
Replace the float chamber cap,
push the chamber back into its upright position, and replace the salt
reservoir cap. The indicator lamp will
now remain off.

Adding rinse aid
Adding rinse aid
The use of Rinse Aid (for example,
Jet-Dry®) is recommended to prevent
spotting on dishes and glassware that
normally occurs during the drying
phase of automatic dishwashing, as
well as to aid the drying result.
Adding rinse aid.
Inadvertently filling the rinse aid
reservoir with detergent always
leads to damage to the reservoir.
Only pour rinse aid formulated for
residential dishwashers into the
reservoir.
Add Rinse Aid before the first use
and anytime the H indicator lamp
comes on.
Press the button in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
18
Adding rinse aid
Setting the dosage.
Pour liquid rinse aid into the storage
container until it is visible on the surface of the screen. Do not add any
more rinse aid until the H indicator
lamp comes on.
Only use rinse aid specifically
labeled for residential dishwashers.
Inadvertently using powder or liquid
detergents will damage the rinse
aid dispenser.
Close the flap firmly. The flap must
audibly engage, otherwise water
could get into the rinse aid storage
container during the programme.
The dosage selector comes factory set
to 3. The setting dispenses approximately 3 ml rinse aid per programme. It
can be adjusted from 1 to 6, depending on your requirements. It is best to
use the lowest setting that will still give
good results for your water supply.
If spots appear on dry glassware,
use a higher setting.
If streaking appears on dishes or
glasses, use a lower setting.
Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occuring
during the next programme.
The flap should remain closed during
normal operation.
19
Loading the dishwasher
Loading the dishwasher
Scrape food and other solid waste
such as bones and pits from dishes,
but do not rinse.
Load the dishes so that water can
reach all surfaces.
Do not place dishes and cutlery inside other pieces where they may be
concealed.
Hollow items such as cups and
glasses should be inverted and
placed in the upper basket.
Concave based items should be
placed at an angle so that water can
run off them freely, or placed on top
of the coffee bar (see page 23).
Tall, narrow, hollow pieces should be
placed in the center of the basket,
rather than in the corners, to ensure
water coverage.
Small cups and glasses should be
placed on the cup racks. Taller mugs
and glasses can be placed underneath the rack.
The spray arms must not be blocked
by items which are too tall or hang
through the baskets. If in doubt, test
for free movement by manually rotating the spray arms.
Some food items may contain natural
dyes that can discolor plastic items
in the dishwasher ( e.g. carrots, tomatoes, ketchup, etc.). The stability
of plastic items is not affected by this
discoloration. It will gradually disappear over time.
20
Some loading examples are shown on
the following pages.
Note
If the additional feature “Top Solo” has
been selected with a wash programme,
all items must be loaded into the upper
basket and cutlery tray. See the “Additional features” section for further information.
Do not touch the heating element
during or directly after the end of a
programme as it may still be hot.
In areas where the water has high
mineral content, it may be necessary to polish silverware after washing to achive a high shine.
Loading the dishwasher
Loading examples.
Upper basket.
The plate inserts on the left and right
rear of the lower basket are removable.
To remove, push the handles of both inserts toward the inside of the basket.
Once removed, the open area can accommodate large pots, casserole
dishes, or accessory inserts (see “Accessories”).
Height limit
For small, lightweight, or delicate items
such as cups, saucers, glasses, dessert bowls, etc. and also heat sensitive
plastic ware.
Bottom basket.
The height guard at the base of the
upper basket is there to protect the
middle spray arm. No object placed in
the lower basket should stand higher
than this guard.
For larger and heavier items such as
plates, serving platters and saucepans.
Glasses should only be placed in the
bottom basket if the special glassware
insert is used.
21
Loading the dishwasher
Cutlery tray.
To make unloading easier, cutlery can
be grouped in zones, one for knives,
one for forks, etc.
Ensure that spoon heads are in contact
with at least one of the grips in the cutlery tray. This way they cannot collect
water.
Larger items like sauce ladles, cake
slices, long knives and mixing spoons
can be placed lengthwise in the trough
in the centre of the tray.
Make sure the upper spray arm can
rotate freely after sliding in the cutlery tray. Rearrange any items that
are in its way.
The cutlery tray insert is removable (depending on model).
Cutlery with round or oval handles
should be placed with the heads in the
grips as this prevents item slipping.
If putting the spoons this way round,
make sure the spoon heads touch at
least one of the strips on the floor of the
tray, so that the water still runs off.
22
Loading the dishwasher
Coffee bar.
Adjustable cup racks.
Place coffee mugs on top of the bar so
that they sit at a slant. This allows all
water to run off the base of the mug.
The bar can also be used as a seperator between two rows of glasses keeping them from leaning against each
other. This protects the glasses and ensures good wash results. For wide
items, flip the bar over to the right.
To make room for tall glasses, raise the
rack upwards. Lower it to double stack
smaller items.
Insert for glasses
The glassware insert can be installed in
the left or right side of the bottom basket in place of the removable plate insert.
Very tall glasses can then be loaded
vertically so that they are washed more
effectively.
23
Loading the dishwasher
Adjusting the upper basket.
(depending on model)
The upper basket height is adjustable.
If tall items of dishware are being
washed, more room can be obtained
by raising or lowering the upper basket.
Depending on the setting of the upper
basket, the following dishware dimensions can be accommodated:
Upper
basket
position
Top
Middle
Bottom
Pull out the upper basket and loosen
the two locknuts on either side of the
basket.
Adjust the basket up or down to the
desired height.
Tighten the locknuts.
The upper basket can also be set on
an angle, with one side high, and the
other side low. Ensure however that the
basket can be inserted smoothly into
the cabinet.

Items not suitable for dishwashers
Items not suitable for dishwashers
– Cutlery with wooden handles.
– Wooden cutting boards.
– Glued items such as old knives with
handles that are glued together
around the shank of the blade.
– Hand made craft items.
– Copper or tin items.
– Plastic items which are not heat resistant.
Please note:
– Silver or aluminum items may suffer
some discoloration.
– Aluminum parts (eg. oven hood
grease filters) should not be cleaned
using commercial or industrial detergents. These high alkaline detergents may damage the machine,
and in extreme instances, cause explosive chemical reactions.
– Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may be damp or
spotted at the end of a programme
where water has adhered to the polish. This can be rubbed off with a
soft, dry cloth. Silver that has previously been cleaned in an immersion dip is usually dry at the end of a
programme, but may discolor (tarnish).
– Carefully follow washing and dishwasher detergent dosing instructions
in soft water areas. Water temperatures above 50° C in combination
with soft water and detergent are extremely aggressive and will lead to
glassware etching.
Miele recommends:
Scraping, but not pre-rinsing your
dishes.
Using the minimum amount of detergent possible to get the dishes clean.
Washing delicate glassware using
the ECONOMY programme or the
CHINA & CRYSTAL programme (if so
equipped). This will reduce the risk
of clouding.
Since there are no standard guidelines for washing all types of glassware, when in doubt, wash by hand.
When purchasing new dishes and
cutlery, make sure they are dishwasher safe.
– Colors on dishware that have been
painted over the glaze may fade
over time.
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing.
25
Adding detergent
Adding detergent
Use only powder detergents formulated for residential dishwashers
(for example, Electrasol®). Do not
use gels or liquid detergents.
Generally, filling the dispenser with
20 - 25 ml (3/4 - 1 ounce) of detergent
will be sufficient to ensure cleaning.
Do not exceed a maximum of 30 ml.
If you choose a programme utilizing the
pre-wash you will also need to put
detergent into the small compartment
labeled (I) in the center of the dispenser.
Dishwasher detergents contain irritant and corrosive ingredients. They
can cause burns in the mouth and
throat if swallowed, or inhibit breathing. Keep children away from
detergent and from the dishwasher
when the door is open.
Press the latch on the detergent dispenser. The cover will spring open.
Fill the dispenser using approximately 20 - 25 ml (3/4 - 1 ounce) of a
quality powder detergent.
Close the cover. The cover will always be open at the end of a wash
programme.
26
To avoid the danger of children coming into contact with dishwasher
detergent, only fill the detergent dispenser immediately before starting
the programme.
Capacities:
Compartment I (pre-wash) takes a
maximum of 25 ml (1 oz). Compartment II (main wash) has horizontal
marks to assist you in filling. The marks
indicate a level of approximately 20, 25
and 30 ml (3/4, 1 and 1 1/4 oz) respectively.
Choosing a programme
Choosing a programme
The wash programme chosen should
depend on the type of dishes and the
degree of soiling.
In most cases the NORMAL programme
or one of the UNIVERSAL programmes
will give excellent results.
The available programmes and some

Note:
When required, the water softener
reactivation process is performed
before the wash programme. It may
last several minutes. During this
process the “8 k” indicator
lamp will be on.
30
The hardness of the water supply will
dictate how often (after how many
washes) the water softener needs to be
reactivated. For example with a water
hardness of 380 ppm (mg/l), reactivation will take place after every 3 programmes. With a water hardness of
140 ppm (mg/l), reactivation will only
occur after 8 programmes.
Do not cancel the programme prematurely, as important programme
steps such as preparing the water
softener may be left out.
End of Programme.
A buzzer will sound at the end of the
wash programme.
This buzzer is then repeated for one
hour at ten minute intervals.
You can turn this buzzer off, if so
desired (see “Additional features”).
Operating the dishwasher
Interrupting a programme.
Turning the dishwasher off.
A programme can be interrupted by
opening the door.
If the door is once again closed, the
programme will continue from the point
of interruption.
At the end of a programme:
Warning!
The water in the dishwasher may
be hot, and steam may be present!
Only open the door if absolutely
necessary and exercise extreme
caution when doing so. The danger
of burns and scalding exists.
Once opened, close the door
nearly fully and allow 20-30 seconds for the internal temperature
to equalize before shutting it completely.
Changing a programme.
A programme can only be changed before the door is closed. If a programme
has already started, turn off the dishwasher, and re-select a programme.
Open the door slightly. The indicator
lamp in the programme touch pad
will go out.
If the programme indicator lamp is

Turn off the water valve.
31
Unloading the dishwasher
Unloading the dishwasher
Dishes tend to break and chip easier
when they are hot. Allow the dishes to
cool until they are comfortable to
handle before unloading them.
If the door is opened slightly at the
completion of the drying cycle, the
dishes will cool much faster.
Unload the lower basket first, then
the upper basket and cutlery tray (if
so equipped). This will prevent water
drops from the upper basket or cutlery tray from falling onto the dishes
in the lower basket.
32
Additional features
Additional features
Top Solo (18)
When this feature is selected, the majority of the water is directed to the top
and middle spray arms of the dishwasher. Its use is recommended when
all the dishes and cutlery needing
cleaning can be loaded into the upper
basket and cutlery tray.
Note:
Lightly soiled plates or serving platters
can still be placed in the bottom basket
if large spaces are left between them.
Do not place dishes, bowls or other hollow containers in the bottom basket.
Adjusting the upper basket to its lowest
position will allow it to accommodate
larger plates.
Because smaller amounts of dishware
are being washed, the amount of detergent used can be reduced accordingly.
Using “Top Solo” will also save water
and energy.
For example, using “Top Solo” with the
UNIVERSAL 55 °C/130 °F programme
uses 12 litres (2.6 Imp. gallons) of water
instead of the usual 19 litres (4.2 Imp. gallons).
“Top Solo” can be selected with all
wash programmes.
Choose a programme.
Press the 2 (18) touch pad. The indicator lamp next to the touch pad will
illuminate.

Cleaning and care
Cleaning the water inlet filter.
Cleaning the filter.
The water valve housing on the inlet
hose contains electrical components and should not be immersed,
or run through water.
A filter is incorporated in the inlet hose
that is attached to the dishwasher’s
main shutoff valve. If your water supply
is hard, or the pipes contain sediment,
this filter may clog and prevent sufficient water from entering the wash
cabinet. It can be cleaned as follows:
Disconnect the dishwasher from the
electrical supply (unplug it or shut off
the circuit breaker).
Turn off the main shutoff valve and
unscrew the inlet hose.
Carefully remove the rubber seal.
Remove the filter using flat pliers and
clean it with a toothbrush under running water.
Replace the filter and seal. Make
sure they are seated correctly.
Screw the inlet hose back onto the
water valve, making certain it is not
cross-threaded.
Slowly turn on the valve and test for
leaks.
40
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the wash cabinet
In general the wash cabinet is selfcleaning, provided that the correct
amount of dishwasher detergent is
used.
If however there are lime scale or
grease deposits these can be removed
with a proprietary dishwasher cleaner.
Cleaning the door and the
door seal
Wipe the door seal regularly with a
damp cloth and remove any particles of food.
Wipe away any residue of food and
drink spillage from the sides of the
dishwasher door. These are not part
of the wash cabinet and are not
reached by water from the spray
arms.
Cleaning the control panel.
The control panel can be cleaned
using a damp cloth and mild detergent.
Do not use abrasive, all purpose or
glass cleaners or ammonia, as their
use may damage plastic surfaces.
Cleaning the door panel.
Plastic laminate panels should be
cleaned using a suitable, non-abrasive cleaning agent, or mild soapy
water.
Panels made from wood should be
cleaned using a soft damp cloth and
an appropriate wood cleaner.

Dishwasher installation
These fully integrated dishwashers are
specially designed for installation
under a continuous countertop.
A cabinet matching panel must be custom made for installation on the front of
the dishwasher.
1. Levelling the countertop.
Check that the countertop is sufficiently
level in both directions. If not, it should
be levelled.
a
To ensure stability, these dishwashers should only be installed
under a continuous countertop
which is securely fastened to the
cabinet base units.
Dimensions:
2. For countertops with
overhang.
Countertop should be the same thickness at the front and back to provide
proper contact with the top surface of
the dishwasher. For countertops with
overhang at the front, two pieces of
wood or a plate should be attached
from the underside as shown below. If
two pieces of wood are used, the
space between them may be filled with
rubber sponge, glued to the countertop, for better sound insulation.
a
1) For dishwasher height of 890 mm.
2) For dishwasher height of 840 mm.
Total height 840-890 mm; height adjustable by approx. 50 mm.
51
Dishwasher installation
3. Installing the dishwasher
under the countertop.
Installing the steam deflector
(if applicable).
It is preferable to install the main water
and electric supplies so that they can
be accessed through an adjacent
cabinet, rather than situating them behind the machine. See the “Plumbing”
and “Electrical” sections for proper connection procedures before continuing.
A stainless steel plate is supplied to
protect the underside of the countertop
against steam rising from the dishwasher when the door is opened. If the
countertop is made of Corian®, granite, marble or other solid, waterproof
material, the steam deflector should not
be used.
Certain steps in the installation
procedures require that the dishwasher be pulled out of its opening.
For this reason, perform the plumbing and electrical connections after
the machine has been levelled and
the front panel has been mounted.
Squeeze a bead of sealant from the
supplied tube into the angle formed
by the curved edge b of the coverplate.
Align the plate c with the lower front
edge of the countertop (see illustration) and use the supplied tacks to
nail it into place.
On countertops with wood or laminate edging, the tacks should be
nailed through the rear holes of the
plate.
52
Dishwasher installation
Installing the slides.
Pushing in the machine.
Two slides are included and should be
installed on the feet of the dishwasher
before the machine is pushed under
the countertop. They will allow the machine to slide easier, protect the floor,
and allow adjustment of the rear leveling legs from the front of the machine.
Push the machine into the opening,
making sure the electrical cable and
hoses can reach their connection
points without being kinked. Excess
hose should not be pushed behind
the dishwasher, but laid to the side.
Adjust the height manually before installing the dishwasher. Leave a
space of approx. 5 mm (3/16") below
the countertop to allow the dishwasher to be pushed back easily
into the recess. Make sure the dishwasher stands level.
VERY IMPORTANT!
Kinked hoses will cause the machine to malfunction.
Place the slides, with the ratchet at
the rear, onto the dishwasher legs.
If the legs of the machine extend
more than 2.5 cm (1") attach a piece
of wood under each slide skid for stability.
53
Dishwasher installation
Adjusting legs.
Adjust the rear legs until the top corner of dishwasher (above the adjusted leg) presses against the
countertop. Do not overstress the
countertop; slide skid provides 10:1
gear ratio!
To raise the machine - turn clockwise.
To lower - turn counter clockwise.
10 turns of slide skid screw produce
1 mm lift. A battery-powered screwdriver could be used on the lowest
torgue setting.
Adjust the front leveling legs by
pushing on the foot using flat screwdriver.
It is easier to adjust the screw feet if the
weight of the dishwasher is not bearing
down on them.
If possible tip the machine slightly.
For fine adjustments it may be
necessary to press against the cogs
of the feet with a screwdriver.
Screw the feet out until the dishwasher
is right up against the underside of the
countertop, to which it will be screwed
later. Ensure that the dishwasher
stands level and that the front of the
wash chamber is square to the door.
Make sure the machine presses the
countertop in all 4 corners.
54
Dishwasher installation
4. Installing the custom door
panel.
A custom door panel must be installed
on the dishwasher before it can be
safely operated. A single large panel or
a two piece panel separated at the
drawer line can be used.
The door handle must be installed on
the panel before it is attached to the
machine. It should be located in the
center of the panel at a height that will
match the surrounding drawer handles.
Any screws used to attach the door
handle must be countersunk.
To open the dishwasher door before
the front panel is installed, gently
pull on the upper portion of the
mounting bracket until the door latch
releases.
Panel Dimensions:
Weight:
max. 9.5 kg
Thickness: 19 mm (3/4")
Width:
592 mm (23 3/8")
Height:
To be calculated in accordance with diagramm:
min. 700 mm (27 1/2")
max. 765 mm (30 1/8")
Note
If a split panel is used, the measurements indicate the total combined
height of both panels plus the gap between them.
Front panel : Height F
F = C - 5 mm (1/4")
The maximum height from the underside of the countertop to the bottom of
the door panel is 770 mm (30 5/16").
To ensure safe operation of the dishwasher once the panel is installed,
it is extremely important that the tension of the door springs be adjusted
to compensate for its weight. See
Step 7 for details.
55
Dishwasher installation
The door panel is attached to the dishwasher using the mounting bracket that
comes secured to the front of the machine.
To remove the bracket:
Loosen the bracket retaining screw
(black arrow) located on each side
of the machine door.
Pull the bracket up until the upper
section of the bracket disengages
from the locator pins, then remove
the bracket.
56
Opening the door after the bracket
has been removed:
Insert your finger into the T-shaped
hole in the front of the door and pull
until the latch releases.
Dishwasher installation
Installing the bracket on the rear of
the custom door panel.
Push the dishwasher into its opening
and adjust the height.
Measure the distance “X” between
the round hole in the machine outer
door panel (shown in inset) and the
lower edge of the adjoining cabinet
door.
For two-piece panels:
If your two-piece panel is joined
together using hardware that is not
flush with the rear of the panel, this
hardware must be removed before proceeding. The mounting bracket supplied with the machine can be used to
secure both pieces to the dishwasher.
When mounting the two pieces,
make sure that the desired finished
panel height is maintained.
Place the door panel on a flat surface, good side face down, being
careful not to scratch the surface.
Make certain that the bottom of the
panel is towards you.
Using a pencil, lightly draw a vertical
centerline on the panel (See the illustration on the next page).
Draw a horizontal line “X” inches up
from the bottom edge of the panel.
57
Dishwasher installation
There are two notches, marked as A in
the illustration, located on the mounting
bracket.
Place the bracket on the door panel
so that:
a - the notches cross the previously
drawn centerline, and
b - the bottom aligns with the horizontal “X” line.
58
Mark and drill pilot holes for the
screws using a 3/32" (2.5mm) drill bit.
Attach the bracket to the back of the
panel, using the 16 screws provided.
Double check the location of the
bracket before mounting the panel to
the dishwasher.
Dishwasher installation
Attaching the front panel to the
dishwasher.
The front panel has been correctly installed when:
– the lower clips of the mounting
bracket are seated in their respective slots on the dishwasher outer
door, and
– The U shaped slots in the upper corners of the mounting bracket are
seated on their locator pins.
To attach the front panel:
Pull the dishwasher out of its opening so that the upper edge of the
dishwasher door clears the countertop and the recessed screws on the
edge of the door are accessible.
Place the lower mounting clips into
the slots of the dishwasher door as
shown in the illustration.
Raise the panel slightly and seat the
U shaped slots of the upper bracket
onto their respective locator pins.
Lower the panel so that it is supported by the dishwasher door.
59

5. Adjusting the panel
6. Securing the front panel.
Once installed, the panel can be raised
or lowered up to 1/16" (2 mm) to maintain the cabinet lines.
Secure the front panel by tightening
the upper recessed screws on the
edges of the dishwasher door.
The panel height is adjusted by turning the lower recessed screws on
the edges of the dishwasher door.
To raise the door – turn clockwise.
To lower the door – turn counterclockwise.
60
Once secure plug the screw holes
using the plastic caps provided in the
installation kit.

7. Adjusting the door springs.
The door panel must be installed before this adjustment is made.
To check whether the door springs are
adjusted correctly:
The adjusting screw is located in the
upper front strip, on the left side of the
dishwasher.
Open the dishwasher door.
Open the dishwasher door to the
horizontal position.
– If the door springs up to a 15 ° angle
from the horizontal position, the tension is correct.
– If the door remains in the horizontal
position, the tension needs to be increased.
– If the door tries to close, the tension
should be decreased.
Adjust the door springs to the correct balance by using a T20 torx
screwdriver:
– turn clockwise to increase the
tension
– turn counterclockwise to decrease
the tension.
61
Dishwasher installation
8. Securing the dishwasher
to the countertop.
Push the dishwasher back into the recess.
Close the door and align the top of
door (control panel) with the cabinetry.
Open the door and check the vertical gap, left and right side of top corners of wash cabinet. If distance to
side walls of cabinetry is not even,
push the dishwasher sideways to
align.
Close the door, check the alignment
of control panel again, correct if
necessary and repeat the inspection
of vertical gaps.
When correctly aligned, turn 2
1.3 cm (1/2") stainless steel screws
(supplied) into the prepared holes in
top edge as shown below.
The weight of the machine must be
supported by the legs, not the
countertop fastening screws. If securing the top takes weight off of
the legs, extend the legs further
until they are tight against the floor.
Ensure that the seal on the top
edge of the dishwasher fits directly
against the worktop. If this is not the
case, adjust the height screws
more, (see Step 3).
Do not drill any additional holes
through any portion of the wash
cabinet. If in doubt about how to secure the dishwasher, please call the
Miele Service Department.
62
Dishwasher installation
Special situations
Open the dishwasher door.
If the edge of the countertop is too narrow, or the machine is being installed
under a cut out area, use the securing
brackets provided.
Pull the dishwasher out of the recess.
Screw the countersunk screws
(3.9 x 22) upwards through the
securing pieces on the left and right
hand sides into the work surface to
secure the dishwasher.
Fit the securing pieces into the slots
on both the left and right hand side.
Push the dishwasher into the recess.
63
Dishwasher installation
For Corian® or granite countertops,
fasten the dishwasher to the adjacent
cabinets using the optional side mounting brackets as shown below.
For openings greater than 23 5/8"
(60 cm) wide:
For openings 600 mm (23 5/8") wide:
Open the dishwasher door and
remove the caps covering the mounting holes on the outer edge of the
wash chamber.
Pull the dishwasher out from under
the countertop about 4" (10 cm).
Insert the tab of each side mounting
bracket (optional) into the guide hole
on top of the dishwasher, then swing
it to the right or left as required.
Push the dishwasher back into its
opening. Align and fasten it to the adjacent cabinets using 2 screws for
each bracket.
64
Fasten the dishwasher to the adjacent cabinets using the supplied
screws and bushings. Make sure a
bushing is placed over the screw before inserting it into its mounting hole.
Tighten the screws and replace the
caps.
The side mounting holes should
only be used for securing the
dishwasher if the opening is
600 mm (23 5/8") wide. Use of this
method on larger openings will
damage the machine and cause
leaks.
Dishwasher installation
9. Final adjustments
Close the door of the dishwasher.
Look at the top left and right corners,
alignment of the control panel and
white wash cabinet behind it.
If not symmetrical, push the legs
sideways on the floor, as shown
below, to move the bottom of the
dishwasher. Keep the door closed.
Make final adjustments of all 4 legs.
The dishwasher must be jammed between the floor and the countertop and
is held by friction.
DO NOT OVERSTRESS THE
COUNTERTOP!
The 2 scews on the top edge serve
only to secure the position.
By no means should the dishwasher
hang on those 2 screws with the
front legs in the air. The top will
bend and the door latch will not
align properly.
Correct installation.
No adjustment required.
Incorrect installation.
Push the legs to the left.
Incorrect installation.
Push the legs to the right.
65
Dishwasher installation
10. Installing the toekick.
To prevent damaging the front
panel, and before installing the continuous and removable toekick,
measurements must be taken to ensure that the toekick will not interfere with the complete opening of
the dishwasher door.
The toekick area of the dishwasher is normally covered with a toekick run matching the kitchen furniture.
The panel overhang (P), and toekick
depth of recess (R), determine the maximum dishwasher toekick height (H).
If the panel contacts the toekick
while the dishwasher door is being
opened, the dishwasher toekick
must be cut shorter or recessed
deeper.
66
If (H) is equal to or less than the toekick
height of the adjoining cabinetry, no interference will exist, provided that (R) is
at least 19 mm (3/4").
Note:
If a decorative or flush mount toekick is
desired, and (R) is less than 19 mm
(3/4"), other modifications, such as
beveling the top rear edge of the toekick, may be adequate.
If your kitchen does not have a toekick
run matching the kitchen furniture, the
toekick area can be covered with a seperate toekick kit, available at extra cost.
