qualified electrician.
~ There must be no electrical sockets
behind the machine. Danger of
overheating if the machine were to be
pushed up against a plug. See
"Electrical Connection".
~ Do not connect the machine to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension
lead. These do not guarantee the
required safety of the machine (e.g.
danger of overheating).
~ The machine must not be installed
under a hob. The high radiant
temperatures which are sometimes
generated by a hob could damage the
commercial 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.
~ Do not open the housing of the
machine. Tampering with electrical
connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous
to the user and can cause operational
faults.
~ The machine must not be used if the
electrical connection cable is
damaged. If the cable is damaged it
must be replaced with a special cable
available from Miele. For safety reasons
this must only be done by the Miele
Service Department or an authorised
Miele Service Dealer.
~ The machine must be disconnected
from the mains electricity supply before
any maintenance or repair work is
carried out. Do not reconnect it until the
maintenance or repair work has been
successfully completed.
~ The plastic housing of the water
connection contains an electrical
component. The housing must not be
dipped in water.
~ There are electrical wires in the
water inlet hose. Never cut the water
inlet hose, even if it is too long.
~ The integrated Waterproof System
offers protection from water damage,
provided the following conditions are
met:
– The machine is correctly installed
and plumbed in.
– The machine is properly maintained
and parts are replaced where it can
be seen that this is necessary.
– The stopcock is turned off when the
machine is not used for a longer
period of time (e.g. during holidays).
~ The Waterproof system will work
even if the machine is switched off.
However, the machine must remain
connected to the electricity supply.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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
~ The commercial dishwasher is
designed for operation with water and
cleaning agents suitable for use in
dishwashers only. Organic solvents and
flammable liquid agents must not be
used in this machine.
These could cause an explosion,
damage rubber and plastic
components in the machine and cause
liquids to leak out of the machine.
~ Only use cleaning agents
formulated for use in dishwashers.
Using unsuitable cleaning agents could
adversely affect the components of the
machine, as well as items being
cleaned.
~ Do not sit or lean on the opened
door. This could cause the machine to
tip up and be damaged or cause an
injury.
~ After any plumbing work the water
pipework to the machine will need to be
vented.
If this is not done, components can be
damaged.
~ Please be aware that the
dishwasher may be operating at high
temperaures. If the door is opened
there is a danger of burning or
scalding. Crockery, cutlery, baskets
and inserts must be allowed to cool
down before they are unloaded. Any
water remaining in containers could still
be very hot. Empty them into the wash
cabinet before taking them out.
~ The water in the cabinet must not be
used as drinking water.
~ Pre-treating items (for example with
washing-up liquid and other cleaning
agents), as well as some types of
soiling and some cleaning agents can
cause a build-up of foam in the wash
cabinet. Foam can have an adverse
effect on the cleaning result.
~ Foam escaping from the wash
cabinet can cause damage to the
machine. If foam escapes from the
machine the programme must be
cancelled immediately.
~ When using cleaning agents and
specialised products, it is essential that
the manufacturer's instructions are
followed. Cleaning agents must only be
used for the purpose they are designed
for and in the situation specifed, to
avoid such dangers as chemical
reactions and material damage.

Caring for the environment
Energy saving dishwashing
This commercial dishwasher is
exceptionally economical in its use of
water and electricity. You can make the
most of your machine by following
these tips:
^ If your water supply is suitable, this
commerical dishwasher can be
connected to a hot water supply for
further economies. If the water is
heated by solar panels, for example,
this would be energy efficient.
However, if your water is heated by
electricity and the dishwasher is
going to be used primarily for
glasses 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 ECO programme for
energy-saving dishwashing.
This Standard programme is the most
efficient in terms of its combined
energy and water consumption at
cleaning normally soiled crockery.
^ Follow the detergent manufacturer's
recommendations on detergent
dosage.
14
^ When using powder or liquid
detergent you can use 1/3 less
detergent if baskets are only half full.
Before using for the first time
To open the door
To close the door
^ Push the baskets right in.
^ Then raise the door up, and push
until it clicks into position.
,Do not put your hand inside the
door as it is closing. Danger of
injury.
At the end of programmes with a drying
phase (see "Programme chart"), the
door will open automatically a little in
order to help the drying process.
This function can be deactivated, if
preferred (see "Settings menu,
AutoOpen").
^ Pull the handle.
If the door is opened during operation,
all functions are automatically
interrupted.
,Keep the area around the door
free of obstructions.

Before using for the first time
Basic settings
^ Switch the machine on with the button.
If the dishwasher is being switched on
for the first time, the welcome screen
will appear.
Language
The display will then change
automatically to the screen for setting
the language.
See "Display" for more information
about the display.
^ Select the language you want, and
confirm your selection with the
middle button.
A tick ( will appear next to the
language that has been set.
Water hardness
The display will then change to the
screen for setting the water hardness.
– 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.
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
The dishwasher is programmed at the
factory for a water hardness level of 2.7
mmol/l (15 °d - German scale).
^ Select the water hardness you want,
and confirm your selection with the
middle button.
See "Settings menu, Water hardness"
for further information.
The following two messages ( Add
rinse aid and F Add salt may then
appear in the display.
Press any button to confirm these. The
display will change to show the main
menu.
These basic settings will be saved in
memory after the dishwasher has been
through one complete programme.
The welcome screen will no longer
appear once the dishwasher has been
through one complete programme.
– Where the water hardness fluctuates,
e.g. between 3.1 - 4.5 mmol/l
(17 - 25 °d - German scale), always
programme the dishwasher to the
higher value (4.5 mmol/l in this
example).
17
Before using for the first time
Before using the machine for
the first time, you require:
– approx. 1 kg dishwasher salt for
reactivation,
– approx. 110 ml rinse aid,
– Dishwasher detergent: see
"Operation".
Every dishwasher is tested at the
factory.
There will be residual water in the
machine from this test. It is not an
indication that it has been used
previously.
Filling the salt reservoir
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 water softener must
be filled with dishwasher salt for
reactivation. The water softener is
suitable for a water hardness level of up
to 6.5 mmol/l (36 °d - German scale).
See "Settings menu, Water hardness
level" for information on programming
the water softener to the water
hardness level in your area.
18
If the water in your area is very soft
and constantly lower than
0.7 mmol/l (4 °d - German scale),
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.
,Do not fill the salt reservoir with
powder or liquid dishwasher
detergent. This will damage 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, as
other salts may contain insoluble
additives which can impair the
functioning of the water softener.
Before using for the first time
^ When filling the salt reservoir only
open the door halfway to ensure
that all the salt gets into the reservoir.
^ Press the button on the lid of the salt
reservoir in the direction of the arrow.
The flap will spring open.
Do not fill the salt reservoir with
water.
^ Add salt only until the reservoir is full.
The salt reservoir holds approx. 1 kg
of salt, depending on the brand
used.
Do not add any more than 1 kg of
salt.
As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced
water can overflow.
^ Clean any excess salt from around
the reservoir opening, and then close
the flap.
^ Lift up the funnel.
^ Run the Pre-wash programme immediately without any crockery in the
dishwasher to remove any traces of
salt from the cabinet.
19
Before using for the first time
"Add salt" message
^ Fill the salt reservoir with dishwasher
salt for reactivation when the F Add
salt message appears. (If it appears
during a programme, wait until the
end of the programme).
^ Confirm by pressing the middle
button.
The "Add salt" message will go out.
After the salt reservoir has been filled,
the "Add salt" message may still appear
in the display if the salt concentration
has not yet reached the correct level.
If this is the case, press the middle
button again.
The "Add salt" message will not appear
if the dishwasher has been
programmed for a water hardness level
of less than 0.7 mmol/l (4°d - German
scale).
,After refilling the salt reservoir,
run the Pre-wash or Short
programme immediately (without
any crockery in the dishwasher) to
remove any traces of salt from the
cabinet.
20
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.
,Only fill the rinse aid reservoir
with rinse aid. Do not fill it with
washing-up liquid or powder or
liquid detergent. This will seriously
damage the reservoir.
Alternatively, it is possible to use
household vinegar with a max. 5% acid
content or liquid citric acid with a max.
10% acid content. The resulting rinsing
and drying quality will not, however, be
as good as when rinse aid is used.
^ Press the button on the lid of the
rinse aid reservoir in the direction of
the arrow The flap will spring open.
,Do not use vinegar with a higher
acid content (e.g. vinegar essence
containing 25% acid). This would
damage the dishwasher.
21
Before using for the first time
"Add rinse aid" message
When the ( Add rinse aid message
appears, the reservoir contains
sufficient rinse aid for 2 - 3 programmes
only.
^ Add rinse aid in plenty of time.
^ Confirm by pressing the middle
button.
The "Add rinse aid" message will go
out.
^ Add rinse aid only until it is visible in
the opening.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
110 ml.
^ Close the flap firmly so that it clicks
into place. Otherwise water can enter
the rinse aid reservoir during a
programme.
^ Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring
during the next programme.
You can adjust the rinse aid dosage
for best results (see "Settings menu,
Rinse aid").
22
Loading the dishwasher
Preparing the load
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.
These substances will damage 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 they get properly cleaned.
– Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
– Wide 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 do not 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 machine on the
crockery. The stability of plastic
items is not affected by this
discolouration.
– 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.
This ensures better water coverage.
23
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.
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.
– Do not wash very delicate glassware,
or glassware containing lead crystal
in a dishwasher as clouding can
occur after frequent washing.
We recommend:
– When purchasing new crockery and
cutlery, make sure they are
dishwasher-proof.
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. If delicate
glassware is washed in the
dishwasher ensure that only very low
temperatures are used. 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 to be rubbed 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.

Operation
Detergent
Only use powder dishwasher
detergent in dishwashers which
have the detergent dispenser
compartment located in the door.
Do not use tablet detergent as the
short programme durations will not
allow the tablets to dissolve
properly.
^ Put powder detergent into the correct
dispenser compartments.
If you wish to use liquid detergent, you
will need to purchase a G 60 Semi DOS
module (see "Settings menu, External
dispensing").
For cleaning specific types of soiling
please contact the Miele Service
Department for advice on the
optimum cleaning agent to use for
the particular circumstances.
32
Dispensing
^ Follow the dosage recommended by
the detergent manufacturer on the
packaging.
^ Unless directed otherwise, add 20 to
30 g of powder detergent to
compartment II, depending on the
level of soiling.
With very heavy soiling you can also
add a small amount of detergent to
compartment l (see "Programme
chart").
Failure to dispense the
recommended amount of detergent
may impair cleaning results.
Operation
,Avoid inhalation of powder
detergents and do not ingest
dishwasher detergent. Dishwasher
detergents contain irritant or
corrosive ingredients which 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

^ Open the door.
^ Switch the machine off with the button.
The dishwasher will continue to use
electricity until it is switched off with
the - button.
If the dishwasher is not going to be
used for a longer period of time, e. g.
whilst on holiday, the stopcock should
be closed.
Unloading the dishwasher
Dishes tend to break and chip more
easily when they are hot.
Allow the dishes to cool until they are
comfortable enough to handle before
unloading them.
If you open the door fully after switching
off, the dishes will cool much faster.
First unload the lower basket, then the
upper basket and finally the cutlery tray
(depending on model).
This will prevent water drops from the
upper basket falling on to the dishes in
the lower basket or water drops from
the cutlery tray from falling onto the
dishes in the upper and lower baskets.
Operation
Interrupting a programme
A programme is interrupted as soon as
the door is opened.
If the door is closed again, the
programme will continue from the point
it was at before the door was opened.
,Water in the dishwasher may be
hot. Danger of scalding.
Only open the door if absolutely
necessary and exercise extreme
caution when doing so. Before
closing the door again, leave it ajar
for approx. 20 seconds. This will
enable the temperature in the wash
cabinet to settle. Then raise the door
up and push until the catch
engages.
Changing a programme
If liquid detergent dispensing is not
being used and the detergent
dispenser flap has already opened,
then more powder detergent must
be added for the new programme.
If a programme has already started and
you wish to change it, proceed as
follows:
^ Open the door.
^ Switch the machine off with the button.
^ Switch the machine on again with the
- button.
^ Select the programme required with
the programme selector button.
^ Start the programme by closing the
door.
The In-operation indicator light comes
on to show that a programme has been
started.

Additional functions
Additional drying
In order to achieve a better drying
result and to minimise the amount of
steam which escapes when the door is
opened, the fan runs for longer at the
end of the programme when Additional
drying is selected. This function is not
available for all programmes.
With Additional drying selected, the
programme duration will increase by
approx. 20-30 minutes, depending on
the programme.
^ Open the door.
^ Switch the machine on with the button.
The - indicator light will come on.
^ Select a programme.
^ Press the G+ button.
The G+ indicator light will come on if
the function is available for the
programme selected.
^ Start the programme by closing the

38
Additional functions
Delay start
The start time of a programme can be
delayed, e.g. to benefit from economy
rates of electricity. A delay start time of
between 30 minutes and 24 hours can
be selected. The delay start time is set
in 30 minute steps.
When using the Delay start function,
make sure that the detergent
compartment is dry before adding
detergent. Wipe dry with a cloth if
necessary. If the compartment is
wet, powder detergent can become
lumpy and stick to the dispenser,
with the result that it is not fully
dispensed.
^ Open the door.
^ Switch the dishwasher on with the button.
The - indicator light will come on.
^ Select the programme required with
the programme selector button.
^ Press the , button.
The last delay start time used will
appear in the display. The , indicator
will light up.
^ Set the required time using the ,
button.
If the , button is kept pressed in, the
time will increase automatically up to
24:00 h. To start at 30 minutes again,
press the , button twice.
If, after you have set the delay start
time, you do not close the door within a
few seconds, the display will revert to
showing the programme duration. You
will have to enter the delay start time
again.
The delay start time then counts down
to the start time selected in minute
stages.
At the end of the delay period, the
programme selected begins
automatically. The In-operation control
light will come on.
Starting a programme before the
delay start period has elapsed:
A programme can be started before the
delay start period has elapsed.
Proceed as follows:
^ Open the door.
^ Switch the machine off with the button.
^ Switch the machine on again with the
- button.
^ Select the programme required with
the programme selector button.
^ Start the programme by closing the
door.
The In-operation indicator light comes
on to show that a programme has been
started.
^ Close the door.
39
Additional functions
BrilliantLight
This dishwasher has interior lighting.
When the door is open the lighting will
switch off automatically after
15 minutes.
You can also switch off the interior
lighting permanently.
^ Half open the dishwasher door and
quickly swing it back and forth three
times. When doing this, open the
door wide enough for the interior
lighting to switch on and off.
The lighting will now be switched off all
the time.
^ To switch the lighting back on again,
quickly swing the half-opened door
back and forth three times again.
40
Cleaning and care
Check your dishwasher regularly
(approx. every 4 - 6 months). This
way faults and problems can be
avoided.
,The external surfaces of the
dishwasher are susceptible to
scratching.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the
external surfaces.
Cleaning the door and the door
seal
^ Wipe the door seals regularly with a
damp cloth to remove food deposits.
^ When the dishwasher is being
loaded, food and drink residues 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.
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 (available from
Miele).
Cleaning the reflector panel
The reflector panel for the In-operation
indicator light is situated in the
coverplate underneath the worktop.
^ 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.
If you mainly use low temperature
programmes, bacteria and unpleasant
odours can build up in the wash
cabinet. To prevent this, run an
intensive programme using powder
detergent after approx. 20 low
temperature programmes.
41
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the control panel and
door front
,Remove any soiling immediately.
If this is not done, it might become
impossible to remove and could
cause the external surfaces to alter
or discolour.
^ The control panel should only be
wiped with a damp cloth.
^ Clean the front with a clean sponge
and a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid. Then dry with a
soft cloth.
A damp microfibre E-cloth without
cleaning agent can also be used.
To avoid damaging the external
surfaces, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers,
– steam cleaning appliances.
42
Cleaning and care
Checking the filters in the
wash cabinet
Cleaning the filters
^ Switch the dishwasher off.
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.
The message Check filters will appear
in the display after every 50 programme
cycles (factory default setting).
You can set the interval for this
message to appear to between 30
and 60 programme cycles (see
"Settings menu, Check filters").
^ Check the filter combination.
^ Clean it, if necessary.
^ Confirm the message with the middle
button.
^ 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.
,Make sure that when cleaning
the filters, no coarse soil falls into the
circulation system. This could cause
a blockage.
The last programme selected will
appear in the display briefly and the
appropriate indicator light will come on.
After a short while, the estimated
programme duration will appear in the
display.
43
Cleaning and care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened:
^ Press catches a together in the
direction of the arrows 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).
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
^ Push the top spray arm upwards to
engage the inner ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm.
^ Push the middle spray arms upwards
a to engage the ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm b.
^ 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.

Maintenance
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. The housing 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.
^ Carefully remove the seal.
^ Withdraw the filter using pointed
pliers and rinse clean under running
water.
Cleaning the filter:
^ Take care when withdrawing the filter
not to pull out or dislodge the flow
regulator located underneath the
filter.
^ Switch the dishwasher off and
disconnect it from the mains.
^ Replace the filter and seal, making
sure they are sitting correctly.
^ Close the stopcock.
^ Reconnect the inlet hose to the
stopcock, making sure it goes on
correctly and is not cross-threaded.
^ Unscrew the inlet hose.
^ 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.
56
Maintenance
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.
^ Switch off the dishwasher and
disconnect it from the mains.
^ Take the filter combination out of the
wash cabinet (see "Cleaning and
care", "Cleaning the filters").
^ 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.
Be very careful not to damage
sensitive components when
cleaning the drain pump and the
non-return valve.

Electrical connection
,All electrical work must be
carried out by a suitably qualified
and competent person, in
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations (BS 7671
in the UK).
– Ensure power is not supplied to this
machine until after it has been
installed.
– We recommend that connection to
the power supply be made via a
suitable plug and socket which must
be accessible for service and
maintenance work after the machine
has been installed.
– For hard-wired machines, connection
should be made via a suitable mains
switch with all-pole isolation which
when in the off position ensures a
3 mm gap between all open
contacts.
– An electrical safety test must be
carried out after installation and after
any service work.
– Equipotential bonding should be
carried out if required.
The machine must only be operated
with the voltage, frequency and fusing
shown on the data plate.
This machine can be converted to a
different type of power supply in
accordance with the conversion
diagram and wiring diagram supplied.
Converting the machine to a
different type of power supply can
lead to longer programme durations
resulting in increased energy
consumption.
The values declared on the label will
only be achieved if the machine
remains in the state it was delivered
in.
Data plates showing relevant test
marks are located at the back of the
dishwasher and inside the door.
The wiring diagram is supplied with
the machine.
The conversion chart is secured
behind the plastic plinth panel.
WARNING
THIS MACHINE MUST BE EARTHED
– The mains connection cable may
only be replaced by an original Miele
spare part or an apppropriate cable
with wire end ferrule.
– For technical data see data plate or
wiring diagram supplied.

The Miele waterproof anti-leak
system
Providing your dishwasher has been
installed correctly, the Miele waterproof
anti-leak system will protect you from
water damage throughout its lifetime.
Connection to the water
supply
,The water in the machine must
not be used as drinking water.
– The machine must be connected to
the water supply in strict accordance
with current local and national water
authority regulations (WRAS in the
UK).
UK only:
To comply with WRAS requirements,
this machine must be connected to
the potable water supply via the
non-return check valve supplied with
the machine.
– The water pressure (flow pressure at
the take-off point) must be between
30 and 1000kPa (0.3 and 10bar). If
the water pressure is lower than this,
the fault message Inlet will appear in
the display (see "Problem solving
guide").If the water pressure is too
high, a pressure reducer valve must
be fitted.
– A stopcock with a 3/4" male thread
must be provided on site. It should
be easily accessible so that the
water supply can be turned off when
the machine is not in use.
– The DN 10 inlet hose is approx.
1.5 m long terminating in a 3/4"
female thread. A 1.5 metre long
flexible metal extension hose,
pressure tested to 14,000 kPa/
140 bar, is available as an optional
accessory if required. On no account
may the inlet filter or the flow
regulator in the connection be
removed.
– The water used must at least comply
with European regulations for drinking
water quality. If the water supply has a
high iron content there is a danger of
corrosion occurring on items being
cleaned in the machine, as well as in
the machine itself. If the chloride
content of the water exceeds 100 mg/l
the risk of corrosion to items being
cleaned in the machine will be further
increased.
65
Plumbing
,To avoid any damage to the
machine, the dishwasher must only
be connected to a fully vented
plumbing system.
! The inlet hose must not be
shortened or damaged in any way
as it contains electrical components
(see illustration).

Plumbing
Venting the drainage system
– The machine's 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
machine to empty itself of water.
– The machine should preferably be
connected to a separate drainage
system on site.
If separate drainage is not available
contact Miele for professional advice.
To vent it:
^ Open the dishwasher door fully.
– The dishwasher is supplied with
approx. 1.5 m of flexible drain hose
with an internal diameter of 22 mm.
Hose clips are supplied for securing
it in position.
– 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.
– The drainage system must be able to
take a minimum drainage flow of
16 l/min.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
^ Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash cabinet.
,Make sure that there are no
kinks in the hose, and that it is not
squashed or stretched.
