Warning and Safety instructions
The best materials are used in the
manufacture of this machine, and every
care is taken to check all parts. However,
with time, deterioration of parts can occur,
especially with such components as hoses,
giving rise to leaks. Check the inlet hoses
regularly for signs of wear and tear. Change
in good time to avoid the risk of leaks and
subsequent damage.
Gas-heated washer-extractors
Safety precautions to take if you smell
gas
– Turn off the gas emergency control valve
immediately. (Usually located near the gas
meter).
– Eliminate all sources of ignition in a safe
manner. Do not smoke, light cigarette
lighters or matches.
– Do not operate electrical lights or
switches, either "On" or "Off".
– Open all doors and windows to ventilate
the area.
– If the smell of gas persists, evacuate the
building.
You must now:
– In the U.K. call TRANSCO (0 800 111 999)
– Arrange for an appointment of a Corgi
registered gas installer to visit the site
(Talking pages 0 800 600 900)
In other countries please follow relevant
country specific procedures.
Warning: After installation, maintenance,
conversion, repairs and before using for the
first time it is essential that a test for possible
leakages is carried out. All components
which carry gas must be checked, including
the gas valve and burner jets.
In the U.K. this must be carried out by a
Corgi registered technician.
Particular attention must be paid to the test
nipple on the gas valve.
Testing must be carried out with the burner
switched on and switched off.
M.-Nr. 06 533 412
Using the washer-extractor
This washer extractor is not intended for
use by persons (including children) with
reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience or
knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning its use
by a person responsible for their safety.
This machine is not a toy! To avoid the
risk of injury never allow children to play
on or near the machine, or to operate it
themselves.
Remember that the porthole glass will be
hot when washing at very high
temperatures. Do not let children touch it.
Always make sure that the drum is
stationary before reaching into the
machine to remove laundry. Reaching into a
moving drum is extremely dangerous.
The water used for washing is a suds
solution and is not drinking water.
The suds solution must be drained away via
an appropriate drainage system.
The washer-extractor may only be
operated without supervision if there is a
floor drain (gully) in the immediate vacinity.
It is the operator's responsiblity to ensure
that the standard of disinfection in
thermal as well as chemo thermal
procedures is maintained (in accordance
with § 18 IFSG) by carrying out suitable
validation tests. These procedures should
be checked on a regular basis, either
thermo-electrically using loggers, or
bacteriologically with bio indicators. The
operator must pay particular attention to
maintaining the correct parameters in the
procedure, including temperature and with
chemo thermal programmes, the chemical
concentration used. Disinfection
programmes must not be interrupted, as this
can have a limiting effect on the disinfection
result.

Warning and Safety instructions
Always follow the manufacturer's
instructions given on the packaging,
particularly when using a combination of
cleaning agents and special application
products. Only use the product for the
application described by the manufacturer,
to avoid any material damage or the
occurrence of strong chemical reactions.
Confirm with the detergent manufacturer that
their product can be used in combination
with another type of product.
Only use dyes, colour run and dye
removers specified as being suitable for
use in washing machines. Always observe
the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Using accessories
Accessory parts may only be fitted when
expressly approved by Miele. If other
parts are used, guarantee, performance and
product liability claims may be invalidated.
Any additional components used, e.g.
suction devices for liquid agents,
electronic water meters or dispenser
monitors, must conform to Safety Class II.
If connected to an external PC,
this must conform to
EN 60950-1:2001 (IEC 60950-1:2001).
Laundry that was soiled with biological
oils or fat should be washed using a
suitable detergent and/or wash programme.
It must also be inspected after washing. If
oils or fat are not sufficiently removed they
could cause the laundry to self ignite during
the drying process.
Do not use a high pressure cleaner or
hose to clean the machine.
Further notes
Cleaning and disinfecting agents often
contain chlorine based substances. Do
not let such agents come into contact with
the stainless steel surfaces, as the chlorine
can have a corrosive effect. Use
chlorine-free agents for washing and
disinfecting and also for cleaning stainless
steel surfaces to protect them from
corrosion.
If in doubt, confirm with the manufacturer
that their product is suitable. If any agent
containing chlorine comes into contact with
the stainless steel surfaces, wipe it away
immediately with clean water. Then dry with
a soft cloth.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the effect of a chemical cleaning
agent on laundry or the machine, even when
the use of such agents is recommended.
Please note that changes to the product
which have not been made known by the
manufacturer can affect the quality of the
wash result.

Warning and Safety instructions
Chlorine and component damage
Disposal of your old machine
Notes on using chlorine bleach and
perchlorethylene
Before disposing of an old machine, first
make the door lock unusable. This way
you will prevent children from accidentally
locking themselves in and endangering their
lives.
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
surface of stainless steel and cause
corrosion. 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.
All personnel working with this machine
must be fully trained in all aspects of its
use and safety.
Keep these instructions in a safe and
accessible place.
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.
Anti-chlorine treatment
Anti-chlorine treatment has to be carried out
immediately after chlorine bleach has been
used. Hydrogen peroxide and oxygen based
cleaning and bleaching agents must only be
used in programmes specified for their use.
Any wash performance problems should be
discussed with the manufacturer of the
cleaning / bleaching product in the first
instance.
With thiosulfate, especially when used with
hard water, gypsum can form, which can
lead to incrustations on laundry or deposits
in the 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 make sure it contains
no active chlorine residues after processing.

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. Packaging e.g. cling
film, polystyrene and plastic wrappings must
be kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Rather than just throwing these materials
away, please ensure that they are recycled.
Disposal 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 household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local community
waste collection/recycling centre, and
ensure that it presents no danger to children
while being stored for disposal.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.

How to wash correctly
Bleaching agents
Detergent dispensing
Only use bleaching agents on textiles with
the x symbol on the wash care label.
It is important to avoid adding too much
detergent as this causes excessive foam.
?
– Do not use detergents which create a lot
of foam.
– Follow the detergent manufacturer's
instructions for use.
The right amount to dispense will depend on
the following:
– The amount of laundry
– The water hardness level
– The soiling level of the laundry
Liquid bleaching agents may only be placed
in the compartment designated for them.
This is to ensure that the agent is added
automatically at the second rinse. Liquid
bleaching agents should only be used with
coloureds if the textile manufacturer's wash
care label states that the textile is colour fast
and suitable for bleaching.
A 3rd rinse cycle must be programmed in
if bleach is to be used (see Profitronic
programming manual).
,Frequent use of chlorine increases the

Check with your local water supplier if you

Only use dyes, colour run, dye removers
and descaling agents which are specified
as being suitable for use in washing
machines. Always observe the
manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Gas heated machines
On gas heated machines the suds solution
is pumped around the heater elements. This
additional agitation of the suds solution
creates foam. It is therefore important to use
a low-foaming detergent and not to use too
much detergent.
If over-foaming occurs use a reduced foam
detergent or call in a detergent application
specialist.

,This is particularly important when
using a combination of cleaning agents
and special application products. Only
use the product for the application
described by the manufacturer, to avoid
any material damage or the occurrence of
strong chemical reactions. Confirm with
the detergent manufacturer that their
product can be used in combination with
another type of product.
Liquid agents should be allowed to settle to

^ Close all stopcocks for water, gas and
steam as applicable.
To remove the laundry the drain valve will
need to be opened manually and the drum
door unlocked manually.
^ Press firmly against the door handle until
you clearly hear the safety mechanism
engage.
You will now be able to open and close the
door again (as long as there is no water in
the machine).
32
^ Open the drain valve by partially opening
the venting screw (spanner size 17 mm) at
the rear of the machine. Do not unscrew it
completely. Drain off the suds. Take care
as some water will seep out of the screw
opening (approx. 100 mm). This should be
collected in a suitable container.
M.-Nr. 06 533 412
Problem solving guide
^ Tighten up the venting screw again and
check that there is no leak.
– Very soft water
^ In areas with very soft water (hardness
level 1) dispense less detergent as
specified by the detergent manufacturer.
– Soiling level of the laundry
^ For lightly soiled laundry dispense less
detergent in accordance with the
detergent manufacturer's instructions.
– Residues e.g. detergent on the laundry
^ Run a pre-wash without detergent and
without selecting a temperature.
Laundry which has been soaked before
washing must be thoroughly rinsed before
running a wash programme.
– Small loads
^ First position the screwdriver in the
opening, then push it in and hold it
securely.
Press against the door handle with your
right hand, and then pull on the door
handle to open the door.
Never use force to open the door!
^ Remove the laundry
Possible reasons for increased
levels of foaming
– Detergent type
^ Only use detergents formulated for
commercial washer-extractors. Domestic
laundry detergents are not suitable.
– Using too much detergent
^ Reduce the amount of detergent
dispensed according to the size of the
load.
– Drum speed too high during the wash
(Profitronic controls)
^ Reduce the drum speed and the wash
rhythm.
– Gas-heated washer-extractors
On gas heated machines the suds solution
is pumped around the heater elements. This
additional movement of the suds can
produce extra foam.
^ Follow the dispensing instructions given
above.
^ Use a low lather detergent.
^ On Profitronic controlled machines and in
special circumstances it is possible to
reduce the drum speed and the wash
rhythm during the heating-up phase.
^ Follow the manufacturer's dosage
recommendations on the packaging and
take local water hardness levels into
account.
– Heavy foaming detergent
^ Use a low foaming detergent or contact
your detergent supplier for advice.

Cleaning and care
The machine should be cleaned and
checked over immediately after use where
possible.
,Do not use a high pressure cleaner or
hose to clean the machine.
The housing, control panel and any
plastic components should be cleaned
using a suitable mild cleaning agent,
applied with a soft damp cloth. Rub dry with
a soft cloth after cleaning.
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents as
they will damage the surface material.
Parts of the housing made from stainless
steel can be cleaned using a suitable
proprietary stainless steel cleaning agent.
Any deposits on the door seals should be
wiped off using a damp cloth.
Clean the detergent dispenser, dispenser
compartments and siphons
The detergent dispenser, dispenser
compartments and siphons must be cleaned
after each use with warm water to thoroughly
remove any residues of detergents or other
agents. If the machine is not going to be
used for a while the detergent dispenser
should be left open to air the compartment.
The siphon in the dispenser compartment
for fabric conditioner should also be
cleaned.
To clean the drip channel and the siphons in
the detergent dispenser remove the
detergent dispenser cover. If a siphon is
blocked a bottle brush can be used.
The grille over the cooling fan at the back of
the machine should be checked for soiling
from time to time and cleaned if necessary.
Rust
The drum and suds container are
manufactured from rust free stainless steel.
Water with a very high iron content, or
foreign objects such as paper clips, metal
buttons etc. which get into the drum with the
laundry can cause superficial rusting in the
drum and suds container.
To prevent this happening the drum and
suds container should be checked and
cleaned regularly and if rusting does occur it
should be removed using a proprietary
cleaning agent for stainless steel.
The door seals should be checked for
foreign objects regularly and cleaned as
described above.
Leave the door ajar after cleaning to allow
the machine to dry.
Remove the siphon and clean with hot water.
Then put it back in place.

the inlet hoses (2) should be checked from
time to time for soiling and cleaned if
necessary.
^ Turn the lid a half to a full turn
anti-clockwise to open the filter.
Any water in the filter housing will then
drain out.
Warning - the water may be hot.
^ Empty the dish and repeat as many times
as is necessary.
When the machine is not in use
If the machine is not going to be used for a
longer period of time (4 weeks or more) the
drum should be rotated several times after
the last use. The drum should then be
rotated every 4 weeks to prevent damage to
the bearings.
Cleaning the filter
The filter should be checked regularly for
and cleaned when necessary.
^ When no more water runs out, unscrew the
lid completely. The filter is attached to the
lid.
