Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Please do not therefore dispose of your
appliance with your household waste.
Energy saving tips
To avoid unnecessarily long drying
times and high consumption of energy:
– Make sure that your laundry is
thoroughly spun before drying.
The higher the spin, the greater the
savings that can be made in energy
and time during drying.
– Load according to the optimum
amount of laundry recommended for
the programme being used (see
"Programme chart").
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives a poorer quality of
drying and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
– Make sure the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
– Make sure the fluff filter is clean
before using the dryer.
– Check all parts of the ventilation
system on a regular basis and
remove any build up of fluff etc.
– The vent ducting should be as short,
straight and smooth as possible to
minimise any resistance to the air
throughflow.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.

Keep these instructions in a safe
place and ensure that new users are
familiar with the content. Pass them
on to any future owner.
use only and can only be used to dry
items which have been washed in a
water solution and which are marked on
the manufacturer's care label as being
suitable for tumble drying. "Dry
cleaning kits" for freshening up
garments in a tumble dryer are
increasingly available on the market. If
using, do so at your own risk, and
follow the instructions provided on the
packaging.
Any other applications may be
dangerous. Miele cannot be held liable
for damage resulting from incorrect or
improper use or operation.
~ This appliance is not intended for
use by persons (including children)
with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of
experience or knowledge, unless they
are supervised whilst using it or have
been shown how to use it by a person
responsible for their safety.
Safety with children
~ Keep children away from the tumble
dryer at all times. It is not a toy! To
avoid the risk of injury do not allow
them to play on or near it or to play with

5
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the tumble dryer,
check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install or use a damaged tumble
dryer.
~ Before connecting the tumble dryer,
ensure that the connection data on the
data plate (voltage and connected
load) match the mains electricity
supply. If in any doubt, consult a
qualified electrician.
~ The electrical safety of this tumble
dryer can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between it and
an effective earthing system which
complies with current local and national
safety regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and regularly tested, and
where there is any doubt the household
wiring system should be inspected by a
qualified electrician. Miele cannot be
held liable for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g.
electric shock).
~ Do not connect the tumble dryer to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
tumble dryer (e.g. danger of
overheating).
~ Unauthorised repairs could result in
unforeseen dangers for the user, for
which Miele cannot accept liability.
Repairs should only be undertaken by a
Miele approved service technician.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
tumble dryer until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
6
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. Only when these parts are
fitted can the safety standards of the
tumble dryer be guaranteed.
~ If the connection cable is faulty it
must only be replaced by a Miele
approved service technician to protect
the user from danger.
~ In the event of a fault or for cleaning
purposes, the tumble dryer is only
completely isolated from the electricity
supply when:
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug is withdrawn, or
– it is switched off at the mains, or
– the mains fuse is disconnected, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
~ This tumble dryer may only be used
in mobile installations such as ships if a
risk assessment of the installation has
been carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
~ In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation by
cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
tumble dryer and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
~ Do not make any alterations to the
tumble dryer, unless authorised to do
so by Miele.
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
following textiles must not be dried in
this tumble dryer:
– items which have not been washed.
– items, such as workwear, which have
not been thoroughly cleaned and
which are still soiled with grease, oil
or other deposits (such as
cosmetics, lotions etc).
If items have not been thoroughly
cleaned there is a danger that these
might ignite when heated, even after
they have been removed from the
dryer at the end of the programme.
– items (e.g. mops and floorheads)
which have been treated with
inflammable cleaning agents or
contain residues of acetone, alcohol,
benzine, petrol, stain remover,
turpentine, wax, wax remover or
other chemicals.
– items which have been splashed with
hair lacquer, hair spray, nail varnish
remover or similar substances.
When washing such heavily soiled
items ensure that you use sufficient
detergent and select a high
temperature. If in doubt, wash the
items several times.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
following must not be dried in this
tumble dryer:
– items which have been cleaned
using chemicals (e.g. professional
dry-cleaning agents).
– fabrics which contain a large
proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber-like materials. For example,
products made from latex foam
rubber, shower caps, waterproof
textiles, rubberised articles and items
of clothing and pillows with foam
rubber filling.
– damaged items which contain
padding or fillings (e.g. pillows,
jackets). When damaged, the filling
can get out with the risk of igniting in
the dryer.
~ In many programmes, the heating
phase is followed by a cooling down
phase to ensure that the items are not
too hot to handle when you remove
them (this also avoids the danger of the
laundry self-igniting). The programme is
not finished until the cooling down
phase has been completed.
Ensure that you always wait until the
end of the programme before removing
the laundry.
~ Warning: Do not switch the tumble
dryer off before the end of the drying
programme. If this was done and the
laundry was then removed immediately
it could give off a great amount of heat.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar
products must be used according to
the instructions on the manufacturer's
packaging.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The dryer must not be used without
the fluff filter in place or if the fluff filter
is damaged in any way.
~ The fluff filter must be cleaned
regularly.
~ The tumble dryer must not be used
without vent ducting in place.
~ The tumble dryer must not be
connected to a chimney or vent flue
which is in use.
~ Do not install the tumble dryer in a
room where there is a risk of frost
occurring. At temperatures around
freezing point the tumble dryer may not
be able to operate properly.
The ambient room temperature should
be between +2°C and +35°C
~ Check all parts of the extraction
system on a regular basis (e.g. wall
vent, external grille, bends in the
ducting etc.) and make sure they are all
free of any hindrance. A build-up of fluff
will prevent a free flow of air through the
system. If the dryer is to be connected
to an existing ducting system, this must
be checked for suitability beforehand.
~ The exhaust air must not be vented
into a chimney or vent flue which is in
use, nor should it be connected to
ducting which ventilates rooms with
fireplaces. It would be dangerous if
smoke or exhaust fumes were drawn
back into the room.
8
~ Adequate ventilation is essential to
avoid the danger of asphyxia and
toxic fumes where another appliance
which also uses the room air (e.g. gas,
oil or coal fired heater, continuous flow
or other water heater) is installed in the
same or an adjacent room.
To ensure safe operation, and to
prevent gases given off by these
appliances being drawn back into the
room, an underpressure of 0.04 mbar is
the maximum permissible.
Ventilation can be maintained by:
– air inlets in the external wall which
cannot be closed or blocked, or
– by fitting a window contact switch
which ensures that the tumble dryer
can only be operated when the
window is opened wide enough.
If in doubt, the advice of a competent
builder must be sought.
~ Always keep the area around the
tumble dryer free of dust and fluff.
Particles of dirt entering the dryer can
lead to blockages occurring.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not let anyone sit or lean on the
door, as this can cause the tumble
dryer to tip up.
~ Always close the door after use. This
way you will avoid the danger of:
– children climbing onto or into the
dryer or hiding things in it.
– pets or other small animals climbing
into it.
~ The tumble dryer must not be hosed
down.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts
and accessories with this appliance.
If non-Miele parts are used, guarantee,
performance and product liability
claims may be invalidated.
Miele cannot be held liable for
damage caused by non-compliance
with these Warning and Safety
instructions.

Notes on laundry care
Care symbols
Before drying check the drying symbol
on the care label. If there are no
symbols, dry at your own risk!
q . . . . . . . . . Dry at normal temperature
r . . . . . . . . . . Dry at a low temperature
s . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Do not tumble dry
– For delicates and fabrics with the
following care label r select Low
temperature.
Tips on drying
– Always observe the maximum
recommended loads given in the
"Programme chart". Never overload
the drum.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry, give a
disappointing drying result and
cause more creasing.
– Do not put soaking wet items into the
tumble dryer. Spin them thoroughly
after washing using the appropriate
spin speed.
– Use the Automatic programme for
drying mixed loads of cottons and
minimum iron fabrics.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can, however,
be partially dried using the Woollens
handcare programme.
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label, as
the surface of the fabric may
otherwise become rough. It can be
partially dried using the Smoothing
programme.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not over-dry
these textiles. When purchasing
these garments it is advisable to take
their shrinkage properties into
account.
– Minimum iron fabrics tend to crease
more, the greater the load. This is
also the case for garments made
from very fine weave fabrics, such as
shirts or blouses.
If in doubt, reduce the load or use
the Minimum iron - Hand iron
programme.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– New dark coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately
from light coloured garments to avoid
the danger of colours running and
discolouring other garments or even
plastic components in the appliance.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.

How to dry correctly
Brief instructions
C Load the tumble dryer
The headings numbered (A, B, C ...)
show the operating sequence and can
be used as a brief guide to using your
dryer.
^ Press the Door button to open the
door.
^ Load the laundry loosely into the
drum.
A Sort the laundry
To ensure an even drying result
separate the washed laundry and sort it
according to:
. . . the drying level required
. . . the type of fibre or weave
. . . size
. . . the moisture content after spinning.
,Make sure that objects e.g.
detergent dispensing balls have
been removed from the laundry.
They could melt, and cause damage
to the dryer or the laundry.
Do not overload the drum. See the
"Programme chart" for
recommended loads for each
programme.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry and
give a disappointing drying result.
^ Before closing the door make sure
the fluff filter is correctly positioned.
– Check seams and stitching to ensure
that padding and linings are intact.
– Fasten duvet covers and pillow
cases to prevent small items from
being trapped inside them.
– Fasten hooks and eyes etc.
– Tie fabric belts and apron strings.
– Sew in or remove underwiring from
bras.
B Turn on the tumble dryer
^ Switch the dryer on by pressing the
On/Off button in.

shut.
How to dry correctly
D Select a programme
E Start the programme
^ Press the Start button.
The indicator lamp for the Start button
will then change from flashing to being
on constantly.
The drying cycle begins.
Depending on the programme
selected, the drying stage reached is
shown by the sequence indicator lamps
on the right hand side of the control
panel.
Before the end of a programme
^ Turn the programme selector to the
required programme.
Low temperature
^ For drying particularly sensitive
fabrics (care symbol r) e.g. acrylics
turn the programme selector to the
Low temperature position.
Because the heater rating is reduced
for the Low temperature setting, clothes
dry more slowly thus lengthening drying
times.
The cooling down phase takes place
before the end of a programme so that
the garments are not too hot to handle
(the Cool air indicator lamp will come
on). The programme is not finished until
the cooling down phase is complete.
The Woollens handcare and Smoothing
programmes do not include a cooling
down phase.
At the end of a programme
The Finish/Anti-crease indicator lamp
comes on.
The drum will continue to rotate at
intervals to prevent laundry creasing, if
you do not wish to remove it immediately. The anti-crease phase lasts for an
hour. There is no anti-crease phase on
the Woollens handcare programme.
During the anti-crease phase . . .
. . . (depending on the programme
selected) the indicator lamp for the
drying stage reached will also light up.
. . . the buzzer will sound at intervals.

WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE
MUST BE EARTHED
Installation - venting
General
Important
Before operating the tumble dryer, a
suitable ducting system must be
installed to carry the moist air from
the dryer to the outside. This can be:
. . . flexible ducting hose, or plastic
piping connected to the dryer, or
. . . the dryer may be connected
directly to the wall vent.
– Before installing the ducting system,
ensure that the appliance is not
connected to the power supply.
– The ducting outlet (e.g. wall pipe)
should be installed in such a way
that the moist expelled air . . .
. . . cannot be drawn back into the
room in which the dryer is installed;
. . . cannot cause any damage to the
building or other nuisance.
– The dryer uses the room air. It is
therefore essential to ensure
adequate ventilation to avoid the
danger of asphyxia caused by
gases given off by other appliances
being drawn back into the room.
Insufficient ventilation will also cause
drying times to be considerably
longer.
Ventilation can be maintained by:
- an open window;
- an air inlet which cannot be
blocked in windows, doors and
outside wall vents;
- a window switch which prevents
the dryer being used when the
window is closed.
Avoid:
– very long ducting systems
– too many bends or corners, tight
corners
Otherwise the drying result will be less
effective and it will take longer and use
more energy.
Suitable materials
– for the ventilation ducting:
flexible ducting* or plastic piping
with a diameter of at least 100 mm.
– for venting to the outside:
a wall pipe kit* or a window vent kit*.
* Available as an optional accessory
from your Miele dealer or the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
Procedure
^ First measure the duct length
required. Calculate the effective duct
length and establish the internal duct
diameter required (use the tables on
the next page).
^ The longer the ducting, the larger the
internal diameter of the ducting
required.
^ Then decide which type of ducting
you want to use (see "Venting
systems" in this section).
29
Installation - venting
Calculating the effective duct
length :
Friction against the inner walls of the
ducting will slow down the expelled air
as it passes through. An elbow, bend,
non-return flap or wall vent creates
more friction than a straight duct. The
friction created by each of these is
expressed as an additional duct
length factor. The additional length
factors are calculated by comparing
the friction created by, for example, an
elbow to that created by 1 metre of
straight plastic piping (Table I).
The additional duct length factor for
each item needs to be added together
to ascertain the effective duct length
required.
A larger internal duct diameter also
helps reduce friction. If the effective
duct length is more than 20 m the duct
diameter should be increased (Table
II).
1. To calculate the effective duct
length required:
^ First measure the distance which will
require straight ducting. Multiply this
amount by the corresponding
additional duct length factor in Table I.
^ Establish the number of angles,
bends etc. necessary and add their
additional duct length factors
together with the help of Table I.
^ Add all the additional duct length
factors together to get the effective
duct length.

b Plastic piping
Example
Plastic piping is a good option where
the vented air has to be ducted for
some distance. The smooth walls of
the pipe create less friction for the
vented air than the walls of a flexible
vent hose, for example. Time and
energy consumption are better with
plastic piping.
The following items are required:
– An adapter* (C 100 mm).
– A wall vent kit* or window vent kit*.
– Suitable piping (C 100 mm) is
available from your dealer or builders
merchants. Where the pipe diameter
is more than 100 mm, an adapter is
necessary (e.g. from C 100 to 125
mm) to connect the pipe to the dryer.
* Available as an optional accessory
from your Miele dealer or the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
^ The plastic pipe (2) is connected to
