Warning and Safety instructions
Delivery
This appliance conforms to current
safety requirements. Inappropriate
use can, however, lead to personal
injury and damage to property. To
avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the appliance, please
read these instructions carefully
before using it for the first time. They
contain important information on its
safety, use and maintenance.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place for future reference, and pass
them on to any future user.
Correct usage
This dishwasher is intended
exclusively for cleaning domestic
crockery and cutlery in a domestic
household. Using it for purposes other
than those for which it was designed,
as well as any alterations or
conversions to the appliance would be
unauthorised and could cause harm.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for damage resulting from improper or
incorrect use of the appliance.
Transport
Should you ever need to move the
dishwasher, e.g. when moving
house, note the following:
– Empty the dishwasher,
Before setting up the appliance,
check it for any externally visible
damage. Under no circumstances
should you use a damaged appliance.
A damaged appliance could be
dangerous.
Please ensure that the packaging
material is offered for recycling.
Installation
The dishwasher must be installed
and connected in compliance with
the installation plan.
The dishwasher must only be
plugged into the electricity supply
via a suitable switched socket. The
electrical socket must be easily
accessible after the dishwasher is
installed so that it can be disconnected
from the electricity supply at any time.
(See "Electrical connection").
There must be no electrical
sockets behind the dishwasher.
Danger of overheating and fire risk if
the dishwasher were to be pushed up
against a plug.
In order to ensure stability,
built-under and integrated
dishwashers must only be installed
under a continuous worktop which is
secured to adjacent cabinetry.
– Secure any loose parts, e. g. hoses,
mains cable, cutlery baskets, lower
basket
– Transport the dishwasher in the
upright position only.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
The dishwasher must not be
installed under a hob. The high
radiant temperatures which are
sometimes generated by a hob could
damage the dishwasher. For the same
reason it should not be installed next to
open fires or other appliances which
give off heat, such as heaters etc.
If you want to convert your
freestanding dishwasher to a
built-under ("U") model, you will need to
order the appropriate conversion kit. If
you remove the existing plinth, you
must replace it with a U-model plinth.
This is necessary to avoid the risk of
injury caused by protruding metal
parts.
Do not connect the dishwasher to
the mains supply until it has been
fully installed.
Before connecting the appliance,
check 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
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective earthing
system. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is regularly
tested and where there is any doubt,
the electrical system in the house
should be checked by a qualified
electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
8
This equipment may only be used
in mobile installations such as
ships, caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
A damaged appliance could be
dangerous. Switch off at the mains
and call your Miele supplier or the Miele
Service Department.
The plastic housing of the water
connection contains an electrical
component. The housing must therefore
not be dipped in water.
There are live wires in the water
inlet hose. Never cut the water inlet
hose, even if it is too long.
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
Use
Do not use solvents in the
dishwasher. Danger of explosion.
Do not inhale or ingest dishwasher
detergent! Dishwasher detergents
can cause burning in the nose, mouth
and throat if swallowed, or inhibit
breathing. Consult a doctor immediately if detergent has been swallowed or
inhaled.
Warning and Safety instructions
Avoid leaving the door open
unnecessarily, as you could trip
over it.
Do not sit or lean on the opened
door. This could cause the
dishwasher to tip and be damaged and
you could get injured.
Only use detergent and rinse aid
formulated for domestic
dishwashers. Do not use washing-up
liquid.
In an appliance with a cutlery
basket (depending on model)
cutlery is cleaned and dried more
efficiently if placed in the basket with
the handles downwards. However, to
avoid the risk of injury place knives and
forks etc. with the handles upwards.
Please only use special coarse
grained dishwasher salt for
reactivation, as other salts may contain
insoluble additives which can impair
the functioning of the softener.
Plastic items which cannot
withstand being washed in hot
water, such as disposable plastic
containers, or plastic cutlery and
crockery should not be cleaned in the
dishwasher. The high temperatures in
the dishwasher may cause them to melt
or lose shape.
On models with "Delay start", make
sure that the dispenser is dry
before adding detergent. Wipe dry if
necessary. Detergent will clog if poured
into a damp dispenser and may not be
thoroughly dispensed.
Do not use liquid detergent when
selecting Delay start, as it can run into
the dishwasher before it is required.
Safety with children
This appliance is not a toy! To
avoid the risk of injury do not allow
children to play in or around the
dishwasher, or to operate it. There is
also a danger that children playing
might shut themselves in the
dishwasher.
Keep children away from
detergents. Dishwasher detergents
can cause burning in the mouth, nose
and throat if swallowed, or inhibit
breathing. Keep children away from the
dishwasher when the door is open.
There could still be detergent residues
in the cabinet.
Consult a doctor immediately if your
child has swallowed or inhaled
detergent.

Warning and Safety instructions
To avoid damage to the
appliance and other materials
Do not fill the rinse aid reservoir
with powder or liquid detergent.
This will cause serious damage to the
reservoir.
Inadvertently filling the salt
reservoir with powder or liquid
dishwasher detergent always leads to
serious damage to the water softener.
Make sure you have picked up the
correct packet of dishwasher salt
before filling the salt reservoir!
Do not use commercial or industrial
detergents as these may damage
material and there is a risk of severe
chemical reaction.
The Miele Waterproof System offers
protection from water damage,
provided the following conditions are
met:
– The dishwasher is correctly installed
and plumbed in.
– The dishwasher is properly
maintained and parts are replaced
where it can be seen that this is
necessary.
– The stopcock has been turned off
when the appliance is not used for a
longer period of time (e.g. during
holidays).
The Waterproof system will work even if
the appliance is switched off. However,
the appliance must remain connected
to the electricity supply.
10
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage caused by cockroaches or
other vermin will not be covered by the
guarantee.
Repairs and maintenance
Repairs may only be carried out by
suitably qualified and competent
technicians in accordance with current
local and national safety requirements.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous.
Always disconnect the appliance
from the electrical supply for
maintenance work (switch off at the wall
socket and remove the plug).
If the connection cable is damaged
it must be replaced with a Miele
cable by a Miele approved service
technician only.
Disposal of your old appliance
When disposing of an old
dishwasher first make it unusable.
Disconnect, cut off the cable and the
plug from the cable. Make the door lock
inoperative by unscrewing the Torx
screw, so that children cannot
accidentally shut themselves in. Make
appropriate arrangements for the
disposal of the appliance.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
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 that they
are recycled.
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
old appliance with your household
waste.
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person. The
plug must be rendered useless and the
cable cut off directly behind it to
prevent misuse. See the "Warning and
Safety" section of this booklet for further
details.
Energy saving washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in its use of water and
electricity. You can make the most of
your appliance by following these tips:
^ If your household water system is
suitable, this dishwasher can be
connected to a hot water supply, for
further economies. If the water is
heated by for example, solar panels,
this would be energy efficient.
However, if your water is heated by
electricity we would recommend
connection to cold water.
^ For most economical dishwashing
make full use of the baskets without
overloading the dishwasher.
^ Choose the programme to suit the
type of crockery being washed and
the degree of soiling.
^ Select the Energy save programme
for energy-saving dishwashing.
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.
^ Follow the detergent manufacturer’s
recommendations on detergent
dosage.
^ When using powder or liquid
detergent you can use 1/3 less
detergent if baskets are only half full.
11
Before using for the first time
To open the door
To close the door
^ Push the baskets right in.
^ Then lift the door upwards and push
until it clicks into position.
^ Pull the handle.
If the door is opened during operation
all functions are automatically
interrupted.
12
Before using for the first time
Water softener
In order to achieve good cleaning
results, the dishwasher needs to
operate with soft water. Hard water
results in the build-up of calcium
deposits on crockery and in the
dishwasher.
Mains water with a hardness level
higher than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d - German
scale) needs to be softened. This takes
place automatically in the integrated
water softener.
The dishwasher is programmed at
the factory for a water hardness level
of 2.7 mmol/l (15 °d).
If this setting corresponds to the
hardness of your water you do not need
to do anything more.
If your water is harder or softer, you will
need to programme the water hardness
level. See following section.
– The water softener requires
dishwasher salt.
If you use "3 in 1" products in your
dishwasher, you should still add salt
in order to achieve optimum results.
– The dishwasher must be
programmed for the water hardness
in your area.
– Your local water authority will be able
to advise you of the water hardness
level in your area.
Where the water hardness fluctuates
e.g. between 6.7 - 9.0 mmol/l (37 -50 °d
- German scale) always programme the
dishwasher to the higher value
(9.0 mmol/l in this example).
In the event of a fault, it will help the
service technician if you know the
hardness of your local water supply.
^ Enter the water hardness below:
mmol/l or °d
13
Before using for the first time
To programme the water hardness
level
Each time a button is pressed one of
the indicator lights will flash and light
up in the control panel. However, only
the indicator lights mentioned in the
following programming process stages
are significant.
The programming procedure can be
cancelled at any time by pressing the
Off button o. The procedure can
then be re-started from the beginning
again.
^ Switch the dishwasher off using the
Off button o.
^ Press the programme selector button
in, and whilst holding it in switch
the dishwasher on using the On
button g.
Keep the programme selector button
pressed in for at least four seconds
until the lower right hand programme
indicator comes on.
If this does not happen, start the
procedure from the beginning again.
^ Press the Tab button twice.
The "3 in 1" indicator will flash briefly
twice at intervals.
14
The characters "p 1 5" will flash one
after the other in the display.
This means that the water hardness
level has been set at 15 °d (2.7 mmol/l)

15
Before using for the first time
Before using the appliance for
the first time you require:
– approx. 2 litres of water,
– approx. 2 kg dishwasher salt,
– domestic dishwasher detergent,
– rinse aid formulated for domestic
dishwashers.
Every dishwasher is tested at the
factory.
There will be residual water in the
appliance from this test. It is not an
indication that it has been previously
used.
Filling the salt reservoir
The water softener requires
dishwasher salt. If you use "3 in 1"
tablets in your dishwasher you
should still add salt in order to
achieve optimum results. The
amount of salt used is reduced to
between 1/4 and 1/3 of the normal
amount if the "3 in 1" function is
selected.
16
If the water in your area is very soft
and constantly lower than
0.7 mmol/l (4 °d) you do not need
to add dishwasher salt.
The water softener must, however,
still be programmed to correspond
to the water hardness level in your
area.
Important: Before filling the salt
reservoir with dishwasher salt for the
first time, you must fill it with
approx. 2 litres of water to enable
the salt to dissolve. Once the
dishwasher has been used, there is
always sufficient water in the
reservoir.
,Inadvertently filling the salt
reservoir with powder or liquid
dishwasher detergent always leads
to serious damage to the water
softener. Make sure you have picked
up the correct packet of dishwasher
salt before filling the salt reservoir!
,Only use special coarse grained
dishwasher salt for reactivation. Do
not use other salts such as cooking
salt, agricultural grade or gritting
salt. These may contain insoluble
additives which can impair the
functioning of the water softener.
Before using for the first time
^ Remove the lower basket and
unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
Salt indicator
Only open the salt reservoir when
you want to fill it with dishwasher salt
as water or salt solution will run out
of the reservoir when the cap is
removed.
^ Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres
of water (first use only).
^ Fill the salt reservoir with dishwasher
salt when the salt indicator light
comes on. (If it comes on during a
programme, wait until the end of the
programme).
^ Place the funnel provided over the
salt reservoir and carefully fill with salt
until the reservoir is full. The salt
reservoir holds approx. 2 kg of salt
depending on the brand used.
As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced
water will overflow.
^ Clean any excess salt from around
the reservoir opening and then screw
the cap on again firmly.
After the reservoir has been filled, the
water softener is automatically
reactivated the next time the
dishwasher is run. The salt indicator
light may still be illuminated during this
process. It will go out once the salt
concentration has reached the correct
level.
,After filling the salt reservoir, run
the "Quick wash" programme
immediately (without any crockery in
the dishwasher) to remove any
traces of salt water from the cabinet.
^ Run the "Quick wash" programme
immediately (without any crockery in
the dishwasher) to remove any traces
of salt water from the cabinet.
17
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Adding rinse aid
Rinse aid is necessary to ensure water
does not cling and leave marks on
crockery during the drying phase and
helps crockery dry faster after it has
been washed.
Rinse aid is poured into the storage
reservoir and the amount set is
dispensed automatically.
,Inadvertently filling the rinse aid
reservoir with powder or liquid
detergent always causes serious
damage to the reservoir. Only pour
rinse aid formulated for domestic
dishwashers into the reservoir.
Alternatively, it is possible to use
– Household vinegar with a max. 5%
acid content
or
– Liquid citric acid up to 50% acid
content.
The resulting rinsing and drying quality
will not, however, be as good as when
rinse aid is used.
,Do not use vinegar with a higher
acid content (e.g. vinegar essence
25% acid). This would damage the
dishwasher.
If you only ever use "2 in 1" or "3 in 1"
products in your dishwasher you do
not need to add rinse aid.
18
^ Press the button on the lid of the
rinse aid reservoir in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid indicator
When the light comes on the reservoir
contains sufficient rinse aid for 2 - 3
programmes only.
^ Add rinse aid only until it is visible in
the opening.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
110 ml.
^ Add rinse aid in plenty of time.
^ Close the flap firmly so that it clicks
into place. Otherwise water would
enter the rinse aid reservoir during a
programme.
^ Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring
during the next programme.
If the "2 in 1" or "3 in 1" Tab function
has been selected, the Rinse aid
indicator does not light up (see
"Operation - Tab function").
19
Before using for the first time
Setting the rinse aid dosage
The rinse aid dosage can be set from
approx. 0-6 ml. It is set to a
recommended setting of approx. 3 ml
at the factory.
If spots appear on crockery and
glassware:
^ Increase the rinse aid dosage.
If clouding or smearing appears on
crockery and glassware:
^ Decrease the rinse aid dosage.
^ Switch the dishwasher off using the
Off button o.
^ Press the programme selector button
in, and whilst holding it in switch
the dishwasher on using the On
button g.
Keep the programme selector button
pressed in for at least four seconds
until the lower right hand programme
indicator (Pre-wash) comes on.
If this does not happen, start the
procedure from the beginning again.
^ Press the Tab button three times.
The "3 in 1" indicator will flash briefly
three times at intervals.
20
p 3 will flash in the Display.
This means that the rinse aid dosage
has been set to 3 ml to the factory.
The dosage set will show in the Display
after the p.
^ Use the programme selector button
to select the rinse aid dosage you
want.
The dosage amount alters each time
you press the button.
The programmed rinse aid dosage is
now stored in memory.
^ Switch the dishwasher off using the
Off button o.
Loading the dishwasher
Note
Remove coarse food residues from
crockery.
There is no need to rinse items under
running water.
,Do not wash items soiled with
ash, sand, wax, lubricating grease
or paint in the dishwasher. Ash does
not dissolve and is distributed in the
wash cabinet. Wax, sand, lubricating
grease and paint cause damage to
the dishwasher.
Crockery can be loaded anywhere in
the baskets, but the following notes
should be observed:
– Do not place crockery and cutlery
inside other pieces where they may
be concealed.
– Load the crockery so that water can
access all surfaces. This ensures
that it is properly cleaned.
– Deep based items should be placed
at an angle so that water can run off
them freely.
– 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.
– Make sure that small items cannot
fall through the holders in the
baskets. Small items, e.g. lids,
should therefore be placed in the
cutlery tray or cutlery basket
(depending on model).
Some foodstuffs may contain natural
dyes, e.g. carrots, tomatoes or
ketchup. Plastic items in the
dishwasher may discolour if large
quantities of these foodstuffs find
their way into the appliance on the
crockery. The stability of plastic
items is not affected by this
discolouration.
– Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
– Hollow items such as cups, glasses,
pans, etc. must be inverted in the
basket.
– Tall, narrow, hollow items, e.g.
champagne glasses, should be
placed in the centre of the basket to
ensure better water coverage.
21
Loading the dishwasher
Items not suitable for
dishwashers:
– Wooden cutlery and crockery or
items with wooden parts: these may
discolour and fade. The glue used in
these items is not dishwasher-proof
and wooden handles may come
loose after being washed in a
dishwasher.
– Craft items, antiques, valuable vases
and decorative glassware are also
not suitable for dishwashers.
– Plastic items which are not heat
resistant. The high temperatures in
the dishwasher may cause them to
melt or lose shape.
– Copper, brass, tin and aluminium
items may discolour or become matt.
– Colours painted over a glaze may
fade after a number of washes.
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. Do not wash
delicate glassware, or glassware
containing lead crystal in a
dishwasher.
We recommend:
– When purchasing new crockery and
cutlery, make sure they are
dishwasher-proof.
– If delicate glassware is washed in the
dishwasher ensure that only very low
temperatures are used (see
programme chart), or a special
glass-care programme is used
(depending on model). This will
reduce the risk of clouding.
– Wash particularly delicate glassware
by hand.
Please note
Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may still be damp or
spotted at the end of a programme,
where water has not run off smoothly. It
may need rubbing dry with a soft cloth.
Silver which has been in contact with
foods containing sulphur can discolour.
These include egg yolk, onions,
mayonnaise, mustard, pulses, fish, fish
brine and marinades.
,Aluminium components (e.g.
grease filters) must not be cleaned
with caustic alkaline commercial or
industrial cleaning agents. These
may damage the material, or in
extreme cases, cause a severe
chemical reaction. See section
"Adding detergent" for information
on suitable detergents.

Upper basket
,For safety reasons, do not
operate the dishwasher without the
upper and lower baskets in place.
Hinged cup rack
^ To make room for tall items raise the
rack upwards.
Positioning rail (depending on model)
Glasses can be arranged along the
positioning rail to give them some
support during the programme.
^ Use the upper basket for small,
lightweight and delicate items such
as cups, saucers, glasses, dessert
bowls, etc. Shallow pans or casserole
dishes can also be placed in the
upper basket.
^ Long items such as soup ladles,
mixing spoons and long knives
should be placed lying down across
the front of the upper basket.
^ Raise the rail, and lean the glasses
against it.
The positioning rail can be flipped over
to the middle of the basket for easy
sorting and removing of crockery.
23

Adjusting the upper basket
In order to gain more space for taller
pieces of crockery in the bottom or
upper basket, the upper basket can be
adjusted on three levels with 2 cm
between each level.
Depending on the setting of the upper
basket, the following plate dimensions
can be accommodated.

Operation
Detergent
,Only use detergents formulated
for domestic dishwashers. Do not
use washing up liquid.
^ You can use conventional powder
detergent, tablets or liquid
dishwasher detergent.
Refer to the dosing instructions given
by the manufacturer on the
packaging.
^ Put the detergent into the dispenser
compartment.
^ Do not use tablet detergent on the
"Quick" programme, as the tablets
will not dissolve properly.
Failure to dispense the
recommended amount of detergent
may impair cleaning results.
,Avoid inhalation of powder
detergents and do not ingest
dishwasher detergent. Dishwasher
detergents can cause burning in the
nose, mouth and throat if swallowed,
or inhibit breathing. Consult a doctor
immediately if detergent has been
swallowed or inhaled.
Keep detergent and other
household agents out of the reach of
children at all times. Keep children
away from the dishwasher when the
door is open. There could still be
detergent residues in the cabinet. To
avoid the danger of children coming
into contact with the dishwasher
detergent, only add detergent just
before starting the programme and
close the door, activating the child
safety lock (if your dishwasher is
fitted with one).
29
Operation
Adding detergent

31
Operation
Display
At the end of a programme
The duration of the programme
selected appears in hours and minutes
in the Display before the programme
begins. During the programme, the
time left until the end of the programme
is displayed.
At the end of a programme, the
In-operation indicator light will be
visible flashing slowly with the door
shut.
The time displayed may vary with the
same programme. This is partly
because of the water inlet temperature
at each intake, and partly because of
the amount and soiling level of the
crockery.
When a programme is selected for the
first time, the display shows an average
time for a cold water intake.
The times shown in the programme
chart refer to standard test loads and
temperatures.
Each time a programme is run, the

Cleaning and care
Cleaning the reflector panel
Check your dishwasher regularly
(approx. every 4 - 6 months). This
way faults and problems can be
avoided.
Cleaning the wash cabinet
The wash cabinet is largely
self-cleaning, provided that the correct
amount of detergent is always used.
If, however, there are limescale or
grease deposits in the cabinet these
can be removed with a proprietary
dishwasher cleaner, such as the Miele
dishwasher cleaner (available from the
Miele UK Spare Parts Department).
The reflector panel for the In-operation
indicator light is situated in the
coverplate underneath the worktop.
It can be taken out of its plastic holder
to be cleaned.
^ Open the door and carefully remove
the reflector panel from the holder.
^ The reflector panel and its plastic
holder should only be wiped with a
damp cloth or a suitable cleaning
agent designed for use on plastic.
^ Replace the reflector panel in its
holder.
,Do not use abrasive cleaning

agents, glass cleaning agents or
all-purpose cleaners. Because of
their chemical composition, they
could cause serious damage to
surfaces.
^ When the dishwasher is being
loaded, food and drink residue may
drip onto the sides of the dishwasher
door.
These surfaces are outside the wash
cabinet and are not accessed by
water from the spray arms. Any
soiling should be wiped off these
surfaces before the door is closed.
E-Cloth
^ A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available
from the Miele UK Spare Parts
Department, which is suitable for
cleaning surfaces such as stainless
steel, glass, plastic and chrome
without the use of chemicals.
41
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the control panel
,Do not use abrasive cleaning
agents, glass cleaning agents or
all-purpose cleaners. Because of
their chemical composition, they
could cause serious damage to
surfaces.
^ This should only be wiped with a
damp cloth.
Cleaning the door front
,Do not use any cleaning agents
containing ammonia or thinners.
These would damage the surface
structure.
^ Clean the front using a Miele E-Cloth
or with a suitable cleaning agent for
the type of material the front is made
of. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
^ Door fronts made from wood should
only be cleaned using a damp cloth,
and then dried with a soft cloth.
^ Door fronts made of stainless steel
should be cleaned using a damp
cloth and a little washing up liquid, or
a proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use
on stainless steel.
^ To help prevent re-soiling, a
proprietary conditioning agent for
stainless steel, such as Neoblank
(available from the Miele UK Spare
Parts Department) can also be used.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions
on the label and apply sparingly with
an even pressure following the
direction of the grain.
42
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the filters in the wash
cabinet
The filter combination in the base of the
wash cabinet retains coarse soil from
the suds solution, preventing it
accessing the circulation system and
re-entering the cabinet through the
spray arms.
,The dishwasher must not be
used without all the filters in place.
Collection of coarse soil may cause the
filters to clog. The level of soiling and
time it takes before the filters need
cleaning will vary depending on use.
Check the condition of the filters
regularly and clean them if necessary.
^ Switch the dishwasher off.
^ Turn the handle anti-clockwise to
release the filter combination a.
^ Lift the filter combination out of the
dishwasher b. Remove any coarse
particles and rinse the filter well
under running water. Use a nylon
brush if necessary.
43
Cleaning and care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened:
^ Press together the catches in the
direction of the arrows a as shown,
and open the filter b.
^ Rinse all the filters under running
water.
^ Then close the flap so that the catch
engages.
44
^ Replace the filter combination so that
it lies flat in the base of the wash
cabinet.
^ Then turn the handle clockwise to
lock the filter combination in place.
,Take care when you are fitting
the filter combination that it is
secured in position correctly.
Otherwise coarse soil could get into
the circulation system and cause a
blockage.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the spray arms
^ Remove the lower basket.
Particles of food can get stuck in the
spray arm jets and bearings. The spray
arms should therefore be inspected
and cleaned regularly (approx. every
4 - 6 months).
^ Switch the dishwasher off.
Remove the spray arms as follows:
^ Take out the cutlery tray (if your
dishwasher is fitted with one).
^ Push the top spray arm upwards to
engage the inner ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm.
^ Push the middle spray arm upwards
a to engage the ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm b.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
^ Use a pointed object to push food
particles into the spray arm jets.
^ Rinse thoroughly under running
water.
^ Replace the spray arms and check
that they rotate freely.

Problem solving
Cleaning the water inlet filter
A filter is incorporated in the screw
connection of the valve on the water
inlet hose. The filter must be cleaned
when dirty, otherwise insufficient water
flows into the wash cabinet.
,The plastic housing of the water
connection contains an electrical
component. It must not be dipped in
water.
Recommendation
If the mains water contains a large
number of insoluble substances, we
recommend fitting a large-area filter in
the connection between the stopcock
and the water inlet hose threaded
union. This filter is available from the
Miele Spares Parts dept.
Cleaning the filter:
^ Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply. Switch off at the mains
socket and withdraw the plug.
^ Turn off the stopcock.
^ Unscrew the inlet hose.
54
^ Carefully remove the seal.
^ Withdraw the filter using pointed
pliers and rinse clean under running
water.
^ Replace the filter and seal, making
sure they are sitting correctly.
^ Reconnect the inlet hose to the
stopcock, making sure it goes on
correctly and is not cross-threaded.
^ Turn on the stopcock gradually to test
for leaks. If there is a leak, the inlet
hose might not be on securely, or it
may have been screwed on at an
angle. Unscrew and reconnect the
water inlet valve correctly.
Problem solving
Cleaning the drain pump and
non-return valve
If the water has not been pumped away
at the end of a programme the drain
pump or the non-return valve might be
blocked. They are, however, easy to
clean. Watch out for glass or bone
splinters which could cause injury.
^ Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply. Switch off at the mains
socket and withdraw the plug.
^ Take the filter combination out of the
wash cabinet (see "Cleaning and
care", "Cleaning the filters in the wash
cabinet").
^ Scoop the water out of the cabinet
using a suitable container or utensil.
The drain pump is situated under the
non-return valve (see arrow).
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
drain pump (watch out for glass or
bone splinters which are particularly
difficult to detect and could cause
injury). Turn the drain pump impeller
by hand to check that there are no
more obstructions. You will feel a little
resistance when you turn the impeller.
^ Carefully replace the non-return
valve, and secure it with the catch.
,Ensure that the catch engages.
^ Press the catch for the non-return
valve inwards a.
^ Lift out the non-return valve b and
rinse well under running water.
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
non-return valve.

Plumbing
Connection to the water supply
,Water in the dishwasher must
not be used as drinking water.
– The dishwasher may be connected
to a cold or hot water supply, max.
60 °C. We would only recommend
connection to a hot water supply if it
is economical, e.g. a solar powered
supply. When connected to a hot
water supply all programme stages
which would otherwise be carried out
with cold water will be carried out
with hot water.
– The inlet hose is approx. 1.5 m long.
A 1.5 metre long flexible metal
extension hose, pressure tested to
14000 kPa/ 140 bar, is available as
an optional accessory if required.
!The inlet hose must not be
shortened or damaged in any way
as it contains electrical components
(see illustration).
– A stopcock with a 3/4 " male thread
must be provided on site.
– This appliance is constructed to
comply with IEC/EN/DIN 61770 //
VDE 0700 Section 600, and may be
connected to a suitable supply
without an extra non-return valve if
national regulations permit.
– The water pressure (flow pressure at
the take-off point) must be between
30 and 1000 kPa (0.3 and 10 bar).
If the water pressure is too high, a
pressure reducing valve must be
fitted.
61
Plumbing
Drainage
Venting the drainage system
– The appliance drainage system is
fitted with a non-return valve, which
prevents dirty water from flowing
back into the dishwasher via the
drain hose.
If the on-site drain connection is
situated lower than the guide path for
the bottom basket rollers in the open
door the drainage system must be
vented. Otherwise a siphoning effect
during a programme can cause the
appliance to empty itself of water.
– The dishwasher is supplied with
approx. 1.5 m of flexible drain hose
with an internal diameter of 22 mm.
– The drain hose can be extended
using a connection piece to attach a
further length of hose.
The drainage length must not be
longer than 4 m, and the delivery
head must not exceed 1 m.
To vent it:
^ Open the dishwasher door fully.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
– If the hose is to be directly fitted to
the drainage outlet on site, use the
hose clip supplied.
– The hose can be directed to the left
or the right of the appliance.
– The on-site connector for the drain
hose can be adapted to different
widths of hose. If the connector
protrudes too far into the drain hose,
it will need to be shortened.
Otherwise the drain hose may
become blocked.
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
– Make sure that there are no kinks in
the hose, and that it is not squashed
or stretched.
62
^ Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash cabinet.
