Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances /
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 appliance or machine. Therefore,
please do not dispose of your old
machine or appliance with your
household waste.
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.
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.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance to prevent misuse.

Warning and Safety instructions
This washing machine 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 washing
machine, please read these instructions carefully before using it
for the first time. They contain important information on its
installation, safety, use and maintenance.
Keep these instructions in a safe place and ensure that new users
are familiar with the content. Pass them on to any future owner.
Correct application
~ This washing machine is designed for domestic use and for use
in similar environments by guests in hotel or motel rooms, bed &
breakfasts and other typical living quarters. This does not include
common/shared facilities or commercial facilities within hotels,
motels or bed & breakfasts. It must only be used to wash garments
which have been declared suitable for washing by the manufacturer
indicated on the garment care label.
Any other use may be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage resulting from incorrect or improper use or
operation.
~ The washing machine is not suitable for outdoor use.
~ This washing machine is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have
been given supervision or instruction concerning its use by a person
responsible for their safety.
~ This washing machine must not be installed and operated in
mobile installations (e.g. on a ship).
6
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
~ Keep children away from the washing machine at all times. It is
not a toy! To avoid the risk of injury, do not allow children to play on
or near it or to play with its controls. Supervise children whilst you
are using it.
~ Older children may only use the washing machine if its operation
has been clearly explained to them and they are able to use it
safely, recognising the dangers of misuse.
~ For machines with a 'porthole' door, remember that the porthole
glass will be hot when washing at very high temperatures.
Do not let children touch it.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the washing machine, check it for any externally
visible damage.
Do not install or use a damaged washing machine.
~ Before connecting the washing machine, ensure that the
connection data on the data plate (voltage and rated load) match
the mains electricity supply. If in any doubt, consult a qualified
electrician.
~ The electrical safety of this washing machine 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. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for the
consequences of an inadequate earthing system (e.g. electric
shock).
~ Do not connect the washing machine 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).
~ 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.
~ Please refer to the information in "Installation and connection" and
"Technical data".
~ The accesibility of the plug must be always ensured in order to
separate the washing machine from the mains.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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 machine until after
maintenance or repair work has been carried out.
~ 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 washing
machine 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 withdrawn, or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
~ The Miele "Water protection system" protects from water damage
provided the following conditions have been met:
– the machine is correctly plumbed in and connected to the
electricity supply.
– if a fault has been identified, the machine must be examined by a
competent person before further use, and repaired if necessary.
~ 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 machine warranty.
~ Do not make any alterations to the washing machine unless
authorised to do so by Miele.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ The maximum load capacity is 7 kg (dry laundry). See the
"Programme chart" for the specific load capacities of individual
programmes.
~ Do not install your washing 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 washing 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.
~ Turn off the tap if the machine is to be left for any length of time
(e.g. holiday), especially if there is no floor drain (gully) in the immediate vicinity.
~ Flooding danger.
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.
These may damage components of the machine (e.g. suds
container, drum), which in turn can result in damage to the laundry.
~ The new hose sets supplied with the appliance are to be used.
Old hose sets should not be re-used.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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 Miele Descaler for washing machines and
strictly observe the instructions on the packaging. If in doubt,
contact Miele or your Miele Chartered Agent.
~ Fabrics that have been treated with solvent-based cleaning
agents must be rinsed out in water before washing in the washing
machine.
~ Never use solvent-based cleaning agents, e.g. those containing
benzene, 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.
~ Never use solvent-based cleaning agents, e.g. those containing
benzene, to clean the outside surfaces of this machine. They can
cause damage to plastic surfaces.
~ Dyes need to be suitable for use in your washing machine and
can only be used in domestic quantities. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
~ Sulphur compounds in dye removers can cause corrosion. Dye
removers must not be used in the washing machine.
~ If detergent comes into contact with eyes, rinse out immediately
with lukewarm water. If swallowed, see a doctor immediately.
Persons with skin wounds or sensitive skin should avoid contact with
washing detergent.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts and accessories with this
appliance.
If non-Miele parts are used, warranty, performance and product
liability claims may be invalidated.
~ Miele tumble dryers can be stacked with Miele washing
machines. To enable this, a stacking kit can be purchased from
Miele as an optional accessory. Please ensure that you order the
correct stacking kit to match the washing machine and tumble dryer
combination.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

Before using for the first time
1. Welcome screen
Before using the machine for the first
time, ensure that it is correctly
installed and connected. See
"Installation and connection".
This washing machine has
completed a comprehensive
functional test. A small quantity of
water remains in the drum as a result.
The initial operation consists of four
steps. The washing machine guides
you automatically through steps 1 to 3.
For safety reasons, spinning is not
possible until the machine has been
prepared for using for the first time. To
activate the spinning function, you must
run a wash programme without laundry
and without detergent.
Using detergent could result in an
excessive build-up of foam.
This also activates the ball valve. The
ball valve prevents detergent escaping
from the suds container into the sump
during a wash programme, thus making
maximum use of the detergent.
^ Place the display fascia onto the
panel.
^ Press the K button in.

Washing environmentally and economically
Energy and water consumption
Detergent 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.
– Do not exceed the amounts of
detergent recommended by the
manufacturer on the packaging.
– When smaller loads are washed in
the Cottons programme, the automatic load recognition system will
reduce the amount of water, time
and energy used. This may mean
that the time left shown in the display
is adjusted during the course of the
wash programme.
– Use the Cottons 60°C programme
rather than the Cottons 95°C
programme. This allows you to save
between 35-45% energy. This is
sufficient for most soiling. Use the
Soak programme for more stubborn
soiling.
– Using the Cottons 40°C programme
is recommended for a normally
soiled load and is the programme
used in energy/water consumption
tests to AS/NZS 2040 (Refer to
consumption data).
– Adjust the dosage to the degree of
soiling of the laundry.
– Reduce the amount of detergent with
smaller loads (approx. 1/3 less than
the amount recommended can be
used when washing a half load).
Choosing the correct Extra option
(Short, Soak, Pre-wash)
Select:
– A wash programme together with the
Short Extra option for light to normal
soiling where there are no obvious
marks.
– A wash programme without any Extra
options for normal to heavy soiling
with visible staining.
– A wash programme together with the
Soak Extra option for heavily soiled
laundry.
– The Pre-wash Extra option for
laundry with large amounts of dirt
(e.g. dust, sand).
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.

How to wash correctly
Brief instructions
The headings numbered A, B, C, . . .
show the operating sequence and can
be used as brief instructions.
A Sort the laundry
,If you use a solvent-based
cleaning agent (e.g. one containing
benzene) to pre-treat a stain, make
sure that any plastic parts (e.g.
buttons) are protected, and that the
cleaning agent is rinsed off before
washing the garment in the
machine.
,Do not use solvent-based
cleaning agents in this machine.
^ Sort the laundry by colour and by
care label. Most garments have a
textile care label in the collar or side
seam.
^ Empty all pockets.
,Foreign objects (e.g. nails,
coins, paper clips, etc.) can cause
damage to garments and
components in the machine.
^ 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.
18
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately
several times first. Always wash whites
and coloureds separately.
– Curtains: Remove lead weights first
or place in a laundry bag.
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners:
Any loose wiring in bras, shirt collar
stiffeners, etc. should be removed or
sewn-in.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc. before washing.
– Fasten duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being rolled up
inside them.
Do not wash any items in this machine
which are specified by the
manufacturer as not washable on the
care label (h symbol).
How to wash correctly
B Switch on the washing machine.
^ Press the K button.
Select
programme
C Load the drum
^ Press the Door button to open the
drum door.
^ Unfold the laundry and load loosely
in the drum. Mixing both large and
small items gives better wash results
and also helps distribute the load
evenly during spinning.
^ Shut the door with a gentle swing.
D Select a programme
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.
Make sure that no garments are
caught between the drum door and
seal.
^ Turn the programme selector to the
required programme.
Duration:
1:45 h
The estimated programme duration will
appear in the display.

required)
F Selecting Spin speed (if required)
^ Press the button for the programme
you wish to run. The Extra option will
be illuminated.
^ Press the Spin button until the
required spin speed is highlighted in
yellow.
Not all the Extra options are suitable for
use with every programme. You can
only select Extra options which are
compatible with the basic programme
being used.
See "Spin" for more information.
See "Extra options" for more
information.
You can reduce the final spin speed.
G Selecting Delay start (if required)
The start of the programme can be
delayed from 15 minutes up to a
maximum of 23 hours and 45 minutes.
This allows you to make use of
night-time economy electricity rates, for
example.
See "Delay start" for more information.

How to wash correctly
H Add detergent
It is important to dispense the correct
amount, because . . .
. . . too little detergent results in:
– laundry not getting properly clean
and with time it may become grey
and hard to the touch.
– greasy particles clinging to the
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
place detergent in the compartments
as follows:
i
Detergent for the pre-wash (divide
the total recommended amount as
follows: add 1/3 to compartment i
and 2/3 to compartment j)
– higher water consumption (an
additional rinse cycle will
automatically switch on).
– a burden to the environment.
j
Detergent for the main wash
§
Fabric conditioner or liquid starch
^ Close the detergent drawer.
See "Detergent" for further information.

I Start the programme
^ Press the Start button.
If a delay start time has been set, this
will count down in the display. At the
end of the delay start time or immediately after the programme has started
(if no delay start time has been
selected), the estimated programme
duration will appear in the display.
During the first 8 minutes the machine
measures how much water is being
absorbed by the laundry. The
programme duration may be longer or
shorter depending on this absorbency
rate.
The programme sequence is also
shown in the display. The programme
sequence display shows the stage the
programme has reached.
J Remove the laundry when the
programme has finished

any small articles, e.g. buttons, which
might be lodged there.
^ Turn the programme selector to
Finish.
^ Switch the machine off with the K
button.
^ To avoid the build-up of mildew, it is

Detergent
1)
Use liquid detergent
Use powder detergent
* Miele special detergents:
Washing detergents which were specifically designed for certain programmes
or items (e.g. Miele CareCollection).
** Only use proofing agents which are stated by the manufacturer as being
"suitable for use on membrane textiles" as these consist of fluorochemical
compounds. Do not use proofing agents which contain paraffin. Fill the
detergent drawer § with proofing agent.
2)
All modern detergents produced for automatic front loading washing machines
are suitable. Use dispensing aids, e.g. balls, if these are supplied with the
detergent. Tablets are suitable for full loads, but note that it may be impractical to
reduce tablets for smaller loads. Some tablets do not dissolve as rapidly as
others, and may not be suitable for programmes with short durations.
Do not use biological detergents on silk as the enzymes may damage the silk!
Instructions for use and recommended dosage amounts are given on the
detergent packaging.
For programmes without Pre-wash or Delay start, liquid detergent can either be
dispensed placing a ball-shaped container (commonly provided by the detergent
manufacturer) straight onto the laundry load or alternatively dispensed through
the detergent dispenser drawer. For programmes with Pre-wash or Delay start
(where applicable), an additional liquid detergent dispenser insert (Material
number 6134691) is available from Miele.
36
Detergent
The right amount to dispense will
depend on the following:
– The quantity of the laundry
– The soiling level of the laundry
Lightly soiled
No visible dirt or stains. Possibly
slight body odour.
Normally soiled
Visibly dirty and/or just a few slight
stains.
Heavily soiled
Stains and soiling clearly visible.
– The water hardness level.
Check with your local water supplier
if you do not know the hardness level
in your area.
Water softener
A water softener can be used to cut
down on the use of detergents in hard
water areas. Dispense according to the
amount specified on the packaging.
First add detergent and then the water
softener.
Use a quantity of detergent as for soft
water.
Washing with several
components
If you wash using several components
(e.g. special application detergents),
we recommend always dispensing the
agents into compartment j in the
following order:
1. Detergent
2. Water softener
3. Stain remover
This way the agents are distributed
more evenly.
37
Detergent
Fabric conditioners and liquid
starch
Fabric conditioners
make garments soft to handle and help
prevent static cling when tumble
drying.
Starch
stiffens and gives body to items of
laundry, e.g. shirts, tablecloths and bed
linen.
Automatic dispensing of fabric
conditioner or liquid starch to
laundry at the end of a programme
If starching frequently, thoroughly
clean the dispenser compartment,
especially the siphon tube and
fabric conditioner channel, regularly.
See "Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer". Do not use
powder starch formulations or
viscous liquid starch in the
compartment as it will clog up.
Adding fabric conditioner or starch
separately
^ Dispense in accordance with
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
^ Add powder or viscous starch to
compartment i. Add the fabric
conditioner or liquid starch to
compartment §.
^ Turn the programme selector to
Separate rinse/Starch.
^ Select a spin speed.
^ Press the Start button.
^ Add the fabric conditioner or the
liquid starch to compartment §. Do
not exceed the maximum level
mark.
It will be automatically dispensed in the
last rinse. At the end of the programme
a small amount of water remains in the
fabric conditioner compartment §.
38
Colour run and dye
removers/dyes
^ Do not use colour run or dye
removers in this machine.
^ Dyes suitable for use in domestic
washing machines can be used.
However, please note that the salt
used in the dyeing process can
cause corrosion to stainless steel
components in the machine if you
dye frequently. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Cleaning and care
,Disconnect the machine from the
mains electricity supply and
withdraw the plug from the socket
before cleaning the machine.
,The washing machine must not
be hosed down.
External casing and fascia
panel
^ Clean the casing with a mild
non-abrasive cleaning agent or soap
and water using a well wrung-out
cloth. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ The drum can be cleaned using a
suitable proprietary stainless-steel
cleaning agent following the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
Extra cleaning
Carry out a hot wash (70°C or above)
with powder detergent approx. every 6
weeks to help prevent deposits building
up in the machine. These can occur
when washing is mainly done at low
temperatures, and also lead to
unpleasant smells. If you have no
reason to wash occasionally at this high
temperature, then run a Cottons 95°C
programme with detergent but no
laundry at regular intervals.
Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer
The two main detergent compartments
of the dispenser drawer are
self-cleaning.
The drawer should be removed and
cleaned regularly for hygiene reasons.
,Do not use solvents, abrasive
cleaners, glass cleaners or
all-purpose cleaning agents.
These might damage plastic
surfaces and other components
because of the chemicals they
contain.
^ Pull out the detergent dispenser
drawer until a resistance is felt. Press
down the release catch and at the
same time pull the drawer right out of
the machine.
^ Clean the detergent drawer with
warm water.
39
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer housing
^ Clean the siphon.
1. Remove the siphon from
compartment § and rinse under
warm running water. Clean the
siphon tube in the same way.
2. Replace the siphon.
If starching frequently, thoroughly
clean the siphon and siphon tube
regularly. A build-up of starch will
cause them to get clogged.
40
^ Use a bottle brush to remove
detergent residues and limescale
from the jets inside the detergent
dispenser drawer housing.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the filter in the water
inlet
The washing machine has a filter to
protect the water inlet valve.
^ First turn off the tap.
^ Unscrew the threaded union
connecting the free end of the inlet
hose to the tap.
The accessible filter in the union in the
open end of the inlet hose should be
checked every six months, or more
often if there are frequent interruptions
to the external water supply.
^ Remove the rubber seal 1 from the
recess.
^ Using pointed pliers, take hold of the
plastic filter bar 2 and remove.
^ Clean the plastic filter.
^ Put the filter and seal back in the
reverse order and reconnect the
hose.
Turn on the tap and check the
connection is watertight. If water drips
out, tighten the connection.
Never forget to put the filter back in
place after cleaning.

Problem solving guide
Opening the drum door in the
event of a blocked drain outlet
and/or power failure
^ Switch the washing machine off.
There is a filter flap opener behind the
detergent drawer fascia panel.
Blocked drain outlet
If the drain outlet is clogged, more
water will be retained in the machine
(up to 25 litres).
,Caution: If laundry has been
washed at a high temperature, water
draining out of the machine will still
be hot. Danger of scalding!
Procedure for draining the machine
^ Place a suitable container under the
access flap.
When draining water from the
machine, do not unscrew the drain
filter completely or take it right out.
^ Remove the opener.
^ Turn the drain filter lid round until
water runs out.
^ Use it to open the access flap.
To interrupt the flow of water:
^ Tighten the drain filter back up again.
47
Problem solving guide
Once the flow of water ceases:
,Make sure the drain filter is
securely tightened. Otherwise there
is a risk of water leakage during use.
To activate the ball valve and prevent a
loss of washing detergent, pour approx.
2 litres of water through the detergent
dispenser drawer after cleaning the
drain filter.
Opening the drum door
^ Remove the drain filter completely.
^ Clean the drain filter thoroughly.
^ Remove any foreign objects (e.g.
buttons, coins, etc.) and fluff. Turn
the impeller by hand to check that it
rotates freely. Any foreign object
causing an obstruction should be
removed.
^ Put the drain filter back in place and
secure.
48
,Always make sure that the drum
is stationary before reaching into the
machine to remove laundry.
Reaching into a moving drum is
extremely dangerous.
^ Pull the emergency release
downwards (see illustration). The
drum door will open.

Installation and connection
Installation surface
Installing the washing machine
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.
To manoeuvre the machine out of its
packing case to its installation site, hold
it by the edge of the lid where it
protrudes to the rear of the washing
machine as well as by the handle
recesses at the front.
Please note:
^ The machine must be level and
securely positioned.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
,Ensure that the machine feet and
the floor are dry to prevent the
machine from slipping during the
spin cycle.
Removing the transit bars
If installing on a wooden joist floor:
^ We recommend a plywood base (at
least 59x52x3 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.
If possible, install the machine in a
corner as this is usually the most stable
part of the floor.
,If the machine is installed on a
raised plinth, it has to be secured
against slippage during spinning
using retaining clips (available from
Miele).
52
^ To remove the left and right covers
1. Pull off the transit bar covers and
2. use a screwdriver to prise out the
covers.
Installation and connection
^ Using the spanner supplied, turn the
left-hand transit bar 90°, then
^ Turn the right-hand transit bar 90°,
then
^ withdraw the transit bar.
^ withdraw the transit bar.
53
Installation and connection
,To avoid the risk of injury, the
holes for the transit bars must be
covered after the transit bars have
been removed.
^ Secure the transit bars to the back of
the washing machine. Make sure that
the upper hooks are above the
retainers.
^ Fit the covers onto the two holes.
,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).
Re-fitting the transit bars
Re-fitting is carried out by reversing the
procedure.
54
Installation and connection
Levelling the machine
The machine must stand perfectly level
on all four feet to ensure safe and
proper operation.
Failure to level the machine can result
in the machine "banging" in the spin
cycle or "walking" across the floor
during operation.
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 counternuts must be
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.
55
Installation and connection
Building under a continuous
worktop / in a kitchen run
– A special building under conversion
kit* is required.
The machine lid must be replaced by
a cover plate. To ensure electrical
safety, the cover plate must be
fitted. **
Washer and Dryer stack
A Miele tumble dryer can be stacked
with the washing machine. A stacking
kit* is necessary and can be purchased
from Miele.
Please note
N.B.**
If you wish to push your machine under
a worktop and there is space to do this
without removing the lid, the
conversion kit is not necessary.
Otherwise the conversion kit is
essential.
– For installation under a work surface
900/910 mm from the floor, a raising
kit* is required.
– Connections for electricity, water and
drainage should be installed in such
a way that they remain accessible
when the machine is in place.
Fitting instructions are supplied with the
conversion kit.
a Safety distance to wall:
at least 2 cm
All parts marked* are available from
Miele.
b Height:
Stacking kit with pull-out shelf:
approx. 169 cm
Stacking kit without pull-out shelf:
approx. 170 cm
The fitting of cover plates and
stacking kits must only be
undertaken by qualified and
competent persons, in accordance
with the instructions supplied with
the kit.
56
,A washer and dryer should
never be stacked without using the
proper stacking kit. Doing so is
extremely dangerous as the dryer
may vibrate off of the washing
machine during use.
Installation and connection
The Miele Waterproof system
The Miele Waterproof system protects
all parts of the washing machine from
water damage.
The system consists of three main
components:
1) the inlet hoses
2) the electronic unit and the washing
machine housing
3) the drain hose
1) Inlet hoses
– The inlet hoses are fitted with
additional electrical safety valves
which work like automatic taps and
are housed in the inlet hose
connection boxes.
– They are pressure proof to between
7000 and 10000 kPa.
– The inlet hoses have a protective
sleeve.
2) Electronic unit and washing
machine housing
– Sump
Any leaking water is collected in a
sump in the base of the appliance. A
float switches off the water inlet
valves, preventing water flowing into
the machine and water in the suds
container is pumped away.
– Overflow protection
This prevents the washing machine
taking in too much water. If the water
level exceeds a certain level, the
drain pump switches on and pumps
the water away.
3) Drain hose
The drain hose is protected by a
ventilation system which prevents the
washing machine from being
emptied completely.
Any leaking water from the inlet hose
is fed into the sump through the
protective covering which surrounds
the inlet hose as a "second skin". The
float switches off the safety valves,
preventing water flowing into the
machine and water in the suds
container is pumped away.
57
Installation and connection
Connection to the water
supply
The protective sleeve of the hose
must not be damaged or kinked.
IMPORTANT: Australia and New
Zealand
This appliance must be installed
according to AS/NZS 3500.1.
Backflow prevention is already
integrated in the appliance.
,The plastic casing of the safety
valve contains electrical
components. The Waterproof system
must only be connected to its own
tap. It must not be connected to
mixer taps or similar and must not
be fitted in areas where there is the
risk of water or other liquids
reaching it. A flexible metal
extension hose, available from Miele
as an optional extra, should be used
if necessary.
The machine should be connected to a
mains water supply in accordance with
local and national safety regulations.
Connection to a household water
softener is not recommended.
The machine is designed to operate
with a flow pressure of between 100
and 1000 kPa. If it is higher than
1000 kPa, it is essential to fit a reducer
valve.
Connection to the mains water supply
should incorporate a mains tap with 3/4"
thread. The tap should be fitted by a
qualified plumber.
,The connection points are
subject to mains water pressure.
Turn on the taps slowly and check
for leaks. Correct the position of the
washer and union if appropriate.
Do not dip into any liquid.
58
Installation and connection
Maintenance and care
Only use a Miele Waterproof system
hose should you need a replacement.
In order to protect the water inlet
valve, the dirt filter in the water inlet
valve connection must not be
removed.
Extension hose
A 1.5 metre long (metal) extension hose
is available from Miele as an optional
extra.
This hose is tested to withstand
pressures of up to 14000 kPa and can
be used as a flexible extension to the
water supply.
59
Installation and connection
Cold water connection
The washing machine is
programmed to cold water operation
at the factory.
If you wish to use a hot water
connection with the washing machine, it
must be reprogrammed as described in
"Settings menu".
,For technical and hygienic
reasons, the washing machine must
always be connected to cold water
as well.
Markings of water intake hoses
The water intake hose with the silver
label is used for cold water connection.
The other water intake hose can be
fixed at the back of the appliance.
Hot water connection
The water intake hose with the red label
is used for hot water connection.
Tips for hot water connection
– The temperature of hot water on the
mains water tap must not exceed
60°C. The preferred temperature is
55°C.
– If the hot water tap is turned off for
some time, the washing machine will
automatically switch to the cold water
connection. This safety measure is
not intended for the permanent
operation of the appliance. The
washing machine continues to wash
using hot water operation, but
washing results are worsened.
Cold water (tap water) = silver label
Alternative types of water = red label
60
Installation and connection
Connection to the drainage
system
Please note:
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.
If required, the drain hose can be
extended to a length of 5 m. The
necessary parts can be purchased
from Miele.
* For a delivery head more than 1 m (up
to a max. of 1.8 m), a second duo-drain
pump is available with the
corresponding kit from Miele.
Drain hose connection:
1. Direct into a sink or basin:
Please note the following:
– Hook the hose over the edge and
secure.
– Make sure that the water can drain
away freely without hindrance.
Otherwise there is a risk of water
overflowing or of some of the drained
water being sucked back into the
machine.
a Adapter*
b Nut*
c Hose clip*
d End of the hose
^ Fit adapter a to the sink drain outlet
using nut b.
^ Attach the end of the hose d to
adapter a.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose
clip c up close to the nut.
* Not supplied with washing machine.
2. Connected securely to a plastic
drain pipe with a rubber nipple.
There is no need to use a non-return
valve.
3. Connected securely to a standpipe.
4. Connected securely to a floor gully.
61
Installation and connection
Electrical connection
The washing machine is supplied with a
mains cable with moulded plug for
connection to a 230V mains supply.
The voltage, rated load and plug rating
are given on the data plate. Please
ensure these match the household
