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 should 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.
Disposing of your old machine
Electrical and electronic machines
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 machine.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your general waste.
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.

Energy saving tips
Energy and water consumption
– Water consumption and energy
usage are determined by the size of
the load.
To make the most out of your
machine load the maximum dry load
for the programme you are using.
Detergent
– Do not exceed the amounts of
detergent recommended by the
manufacturer on the packaging.
– Reduce the amount of detergent for
smaller loads.
When drying with a tumble dryer
Selecting the highest possible spin
speed for the wash programme will
save energy when drying in a tumble
dryer afterwards.

check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install or use a damaged
machine.
~ The electrical safety of this machine
can only be guaranteed when it
correctly earthed. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
observed and regularly tested, and
where there is any doubt the on-site
wiring system should be inspected by a
qualified electrician. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for the
consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
~ 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. If
this is not done any resultant damage
will not be covered by the guarantee.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
machine until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug is withdrawn, or
– it is switched off at the mains, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
~ This machine must only be
connected to the on-site water supply
using a hose that is in good condition.
Old hoses must not be re-used. Check
the hose regularly for signs of wear.
Change in good time to avoid the risk of
leaks and subsequent damage.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. Only when these parts are
fitted can the safety standards of the
machine be guaranteed.
~ Do not use force to open the drum
door. The door handle is fitted with a
safety device to ensure that the door
lock functions correctly.
~ Do not make any alterations to the
machine, unless authorised to do so by
Miele.

Warning and Safety instructions
~ If this machine is being used in a
commercial environment please ensure
that all relevant health and safety
regulations are obeyed.
~ Turn off the stopcock if the machine
~ This machine 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.
~ Flooding danger.
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other
vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the machine 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.
Correct use
~ Do not install your machine in rooms
where temperatures below freezing
may occur. Frozen hoses may burst or
split. The reliability of the electronic
control unit may be impaired at
temperatures below freezing point.
~ Before using the machine for the
first time, check that the transit bars at
the rear of the machine have been
removed (see section on "Installation").
During spinning, a transit bar which is
still in place may result in damage to
both the machine and adjacent
furniture or appliances.

is to be left for any length of time (e.g.
holiday), especially if there is no floor
drain (gully) in the immediate vicinity.
If hooking the drain hose into a wash
basin, check that the water can drain
off quickly enough to prevent the sink
from overflowing. Make sure the drain
hose is secure, so that the force of the
water flowing out of the hose does not
dislodge it.
~ Take care to ensure that foreign
objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins, paper
clips) do not find their way into the
machine with the laundry. Shake out
wash cloths before placing them in the
machine to ensure that any coarse or
harmful residues are removed. These
may damage components of the
machine (e.g. suds container, drum),
which in turn can result in damage to
the laundry.
~ If the correct amount of detergent is
dispensed, the machine should not
need to be descaled. If, however, you
do wish to descale the machine only
use proprietary non-corrosive descaling
agents and strictly observe the
instructions on the packaging. A
special descaling agent is available to
order from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or your Miele dealer.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Textiles which have been
pre-treated in solvent based cleaning
agents must be thoroughly rinsed in
clean water before being washed in this
machine.
~ Never use solvent based cleaning
agents in this machine, as this may
result in damage to component parts
and create toxic fumes. Such agents
also pose a fire and explosion hazard.
~ Do not use a pressure washer or
hose to clean the machine.
~ It is particularly important to observe
manafucturer's instructions when using
a combination of cleaning agents and
special application products. Products
must only be used for applications
approved by the manufacturer to avoid
any material damage or the occurrence
of strong chemical reactions.
~ Benzine, petrol, paraffin or any
easily flammable liquid must not be
stored or used near this machine. Fire
and explosion risk!
Chlorine and component
damage
~ Only use dyes specified by the
Notes on using chlorine bleach and
perchlorethylene
manufacturer as being suitable for use
in a washing machine. Always observe
the manufacturer's instructions
carefully.
~ Colour run and dye removers
contain sulphur compounds which can
cause damage such as corrosion. Do
not use these products in this machine.
~ Avoid contact of stainless steel
surfaces (front, lid, casing) with liquid
cleaning and disinfecting agents which
contain chlorine or sodium
hypochlorite. These agents can have a
corrosive effect on stainless steel.
Aggressive vapours containing chlorine
bleach can also be corrosive. Do not
store open containers of these agents
near the machine.
~ Frequent use of chlorine increases
the risk of component damage.
The use of agents containing chlorine,
such as sodium hypochlorite and
chlorine bleach in powder form, can
damage the protective upper surface of
stainless steel and cause corrosion to
components. Factors affecting this are
chlorine concentration levels, contact
time and temperature. It is therefore
advisable to avoid the use of such
agents. Oxygen based bleaching
agents should be used instead.
If, however, chlorine based bleaching
agents have to be used for particular
types of soiling, then anti-chlorine
measures must also be carried out. If
this is not done irreparable damage
can occur to components in the
machine and to laundry.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Anti-chlorine treatment
Accessories
Anti-chlorine treatment has to be
carried out immediately after chlorine
bleach has been used. The use of
hydrogen peroxide or an oxygen based
cleaning or bleaching agent is
recommended and the laundry should
not be drained in between.
~ Accessory parts may only be fitted
With thiosulfate, especially when used
with hard water, gypsum can form,
which can lead to incrustations on
laundry or deposits in the machine. The
use of hydrogen peroxide is preferable
as it aids the chorline neutralising
process.
~ Before disposing of an old machine
The exact quantity of additives and the
treatment temperatures required must
be set and tested on site in accordance
with the dosage recommendations of
the detergent and additive
manufacturers. The laundry must also
be tested to check whether it contains
any active chlorine residues.
10
when expressly approved by Miele. If
other parts are used, guarantee,
performance and product liability
claims will be invalidated.
Disposing of your old machine
it is important to disable the door lock.
This way you will prevent the risk of
children accidentally locking
themselves in and endangering their
lives.
Miele cannot be held liable for
damage caused by non-compliance
with these Warning and Safety
instructions.

Tips
1. Sort the laundry
Sorting laundry
^ Sort the laundry by colour and by
care label. Most garments have a
textile care label in the collar or side
seam.
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately
several times before being included in
a mixed load. Always wash whites and
coloureds separately.
– Curtains: Remove lead weights first
or place in a laundry bag.
^ Empty all pockets.
,Foreign objects (e.g. nails,
coins, paper clips, etc.) can cause
damage to textiles and to
components in the machine.
Removing marks
^ Badly soiled areas, stains etc. should
be cleaned as soon as possible,
preferably whilst still fresh. Spillages
should be carefully dabbed off using
a soft, colourfast cloth. Do not rub!
Badly soiled areas can be pre-treated
with liquid detergent, stain removers
etc. first, following the manufacturer's
instructions. With particularly stubborn
stains ask your dry cleaner for advice.
,Do not use solvent-based
cleaning agents in this machine.
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners:
Any loose wiring in bras, shirt collar
stiffeners, etc. should be removed or
sewn in.
– Knitted garments, trousers and
jeans, T-shirts and sweat shirts: Turn
inside out, if recommended by the
manufacturer.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc before washing.
– Fasten duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being rolled up
inside them.
– See the separate booklet supplied
with the machine for further tips.
Do not wash any items in this machine
which are specified by the
manufacturer as not washable on the
care label. (h symbol)
Items suitable for professional wet
cleaning (w garment care label
symbol) may be washed in this
machine.
15
Tips
2. Load the drum
3. Select a programme
^ Switch the machine off with the K
On/Off button.
^ Select the most appropriate
programme for the load being
washed.
^ To open the drum door pull on the
handle.
Do not use force as it is fitted with a
safety device to prevent it being
opened by mistake. Forcing the door
handle can cause damage to the
locking mechanism (see "Problem
solving guide, The door will not
open").
^ Unfold the laundry and load loosely
into the drum. Mixing both large and
small items gives better wash results
and also helps distribute the load
evenly during spinning.
The most efficient use of energy and
water is achieved when a full load is
washed. However, do not overload as
this causes creases and reduces
cleaning efficiency.
^ Close the drum door. Press the door
firmly to shut it and then lock the
handle in position. Do not slam the
drum door.
,Make sure that no items are
caught between the door and the
drum.

Short instructions
D Add detergent
Take the level of soiling and water
hardness into account.
Too little detergent results in:
– Laundry not getting properly clean,
and with time may become grey and
hard to the touch.
– Greasy particles clinging to laundry.
– Limescale deposits on the heater
elements.
Too much detergent results in:
– Excessive foam which causes a low
level of agitation and poor wash,
rinse and spin results.
^ Pull out the detergent drawer and
add detergent to the compartments
as follows:
i = Detergent for the pre-wash
– A burden to the environment.
j = Detergent for the main wash
See "Detergent" for further information.
§
This machine is set up for
connection to an external
dispensing system for dispensing
liquid agents (see "Detergent External dispensing system").
= Fabric conditioner, liquid starch
or proofing agent
^ Close the detergent drawer.
The detergent drawer must not be
opened during a programme. It
must remain closed whilst the
machine is in use.
The § compartment is not used
during Disinfection programmes.
Do not put anything in the §
compartment.

you know which section of the
programme has been reached.
^ Open the drum door.
^ Remove the laundry.
Check that all items have been
removed from the drum. Items left in
the drum could discolour other items
in the next wash or become
discoloured themselves.
^ Close the drum door. Otherwise there
is the danger of objects being placed
inadvertently in the drum. If these
remained unnoticed and were
washed in the next load, they could
damage the laundry.
^ Switch the machine off using the
On/Off button.
Once washing is in progress, you can
press the following short cut buttons:
– Button D Extras can be used to
select or de-select extras.
– Button E Timer can be used to call
up the current time of day and to see
the estimated end time of the

Installation
Installation surface
Removing the transit bars
,Do not install the machine near
or directly above an open gully or
floor drain. Moisture from these can
penetrate the machine and damage
the electric components.
,Ensure that the machine feet and
the floor are dry to prevent the
machine from slipping during the
spin cycle.
A concrete floor is the most suitable
installation surface for a washing
machine, being far less prone to
vibration during the spin cycle than
wooden floorboards or a carpeted
surface.
^ Release the catch and turn the left
hand transit bar clockwise by 90°.
^ The machine must be level and
securely positioned.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
If installing on a wooden joist floor:
^ We recommend a plywood base (at
least 69 x 87 x 3 cm). The base
should span several joists and be
bolted to the joists and not only to the
floorboards. Check for the presence
of pipes and cables first.
^ Then withdraw the transit bar.
If possible, install the machine in a
corner, as this is usually the most stable
part of the floor.
51
Installation
,To avoid the risk of injury the
holes for the transit bars must be
covered after the transit bars have
been removed.
^ Release the catch and turn the right
hand transit bar anti-clockwise by
90°.
^ Plug the holes with the plastic caps
supplied.
,The machine must not be moved
without the transit bars in place.
Store them as shown or keep them
in a safe place for future use. They
must be re-fitted if the machine is to
be moved again (e.g. when moving
house).
^ Then withdraw the transit bar.
,When moving the machine make
sure it is stable.
Re-fitting the transit bars
Re-fitting is carried out by reversing the
procedure.
52
Installation
Levelling the machine
Ensure that the machine feet and the
floor are dry to prevent the machine
from slipping during the spin cycle.
,The machine must stand
perfectly level on all four feet to
ensure safe and proper operation.
Incorrect installation may increase
electricity and water consumption and
may cause the machine to move about.
Screwing out and adjusting the feet
The four adjustable screw feet are used
to level the machine. All four feet are
screwed in when the machine is
delivered.
^ Use a spirit level to check the
machine is standing level.
^ Hold foot 1 securely with a pipe
wrench. Turn counter nut 2 again
using the spanner supplied until it
sits firmly up against the housing.
,All four counter nuts must sit
firmly up against the housing. Please
also check this for the feet which did
not need adjustment. Otherwise
there is the danger of the machine
moving about.
^ Using the spanner supplied, turn
counter nut 2 in a clockwise
direction. Then turn counter nut 2
together with foot 1 to unscrew.

Installation
Plumbing
This machine is approved for all UK
applications as suitable for category 5.
The product is listed in the WRAS
regulations advisory scheme directory
and is suitable for direct connection to
mains drinking water. No special
plumbing arrangements e.g. break
tanks are required.
Three Water Council approved double
check valves are supplied in the
accessories pack provided with this
machine. They should be fitted in
between the stopcocks and the water
inlet hoses.
The machine is built in accordance with
current DIN standards and must be
connected to a mains water supply in
accordance with local and national
safety regulations. It can be connected
with out a non-return valve if national
regulations permit
The machine is designed to operate
with a flow pressure of between 1 and
10 bar (100 kPa and 1,000 kPa). At
higher water pressures it is essential to
fit a reducer valve.
Connection to the water supply should
be carried out by a qualified plumber
and should incorporate a stopcock with
a 3/4" thread. The stopcock should be
fitted by a qualified plumber.
The machine is supplied as standard
with two hoses, for connection to a hot
and cold water supply.
54
Connection to the cold water supply
The cold water inlet hose (blue
stripes) must be connected to the
on-site cold water supply via a 3/4"
threaded union. It is not suitable for
connection to a hot water supply.
,The connection point is subject
to mains water pressure. Turn on the
stopcock slowly and check for leaks.
Correct the position of the washer
and union if appropriate.
Maintenance and care
Only use a genuine Miele hose should
you ever need a replacement. Miele
hoses are tested to withstand pressure
of at least 70 bar (7,000 kPa).
In order to protect the water inlet
valve, the two dirt filters - one in the
open end of the inlet hose, one at
the inlet point in the machine - must
not be removed.
Extension hose
Longer hoses 2.5 or 4.0 m in length are
available from your Miele dealer or the
Miele Spare Parts Department as
optional extras.
Installation
Connection to the hot water supply
To keep electricity consumption costs
down this machine can be connected
to a (ring) piped hot water supply, max.
temperature 70°C. It is not economical
to run it from an individual hot water
supply if it is not in continuous use, as
the water in the supply pipes cools
down and more energy would be
required to reheat the water. For hot
water connection the same conditions
apply as for cold water connection.
The inlet hose with the red stripes (hot
water hose) is connected to the
stopcock.
For operational reasons the machine
must not be connected to hot water
only.
If the machine is not connected to a hot
water supply, the hot water inlet hose
must be disconnected and the water
settings for the main wash, pre-wash
and rinses must be reprogrammed.
^ Select the cold option in the Settings
menu/Supervisor level/menu.
The programme durations may be
longer.
^ Disconnect the hot water hose (hot
water - red stripes)
^ Plug the inlet hole with the blanking
cap supplied.
Recycled water connection
This machine can be connected to a
recycled water supply.
^ Unscrew the blanking cap from the
recycled water valve.
^ Connect the additional inlet hose to
this valve.
The main wash and rinses water
settings must then be set as
appropriate.
^ Go to Settings menu/Supervisor level
menu and select the Recycled water
option.
Connection to a very hot water
supply
It is possible to connect the machine to
a very hot water supply, 70°C to a
maximum of 85°C. A special inlet hose
is required. The machine must also be
reprogrammed by a Miele service
technician or Miele authorised service
dealer.
55
Installation
Water drainage
Dump valve version
A motorised dump valve is used to
drain the machine. A DN 70 angle
connector can be used for draining the
machine via an on-site gully (with odour
trap). N.B. If not supplied with the
machine, an angle connector is
available to order from Miele.
Machines with a drain pump
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre*. The
drain hose must not be kinked as this
restricts drainage. The swivel elbow at
the end of the hose can be turned in
either direction, or can be detached if
required, with a sharp twist and pull.
Drain hose connection:
1. Connected securely to a plastic
drain pipe with a rubber nipple.
There is no need to use a non-return
valve.
2. Connected securely to a standpipe.
3. Connected securely to a floor gully.
If required, the drain hose can be
extended to a length of 5 m. The
necessary parts can purchased from
the Miele Spare Parts Department or
your Miele dealer.
* For a delivery head of more than 1 m
(up to a max. of 1.6 m) a second
duo-drain pump is available with the
corresponding kit from the Miele Spare
Parts Department or your Miele Dealer.
