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 offered for recycling.
Disposal of your old machine
Electrical and electronic machines
often contain materials which if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your machine. Please do
not therefore dispose or it with your
household waste.
It should be disconnected from the
mains electricity supply by a competent
person. The cable should be cut off
directly behind it to prevent misuse.
See the "Warning and Safety" section of
this booklet for further details.
Energy saving tips
Energy and water consumption
– Water consumption and energy
usage are determined by the size of
the load.
To make the most out of your
machine load the maximum dry load
for the programme you are using.
– If smaller loads are washed using the
Cottons programmes, the automatic
load recognition system will reduce
the amount of water, time and energy
used.
– Use the Quick wash programme for
small loads.
Detergent
– Do not exceed the amounts of
detergent recommended by the
manufacturer on the packaging.
– Reduce the amount of detergent for
smaller loads.
When drying with a tumble dryer
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.

Selecting the highest possible spin
speed for the wash programme will
save energy when drying in a tumble
dryer afterwards.

Warning and Safety instructions
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the machine please read
these operating 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 and ensure that new users are
familiar with the content. Pass them
on to any future owner of the
machine.
Correct use
Only use this washer-extractor to
wash items which are specified by
the manufacturer to be
machine-washable on the wash-care
label, and textiles composed of
hand-washable wool or wool blend
fabrics as well as satin, lace, silk and
other hand-washable garments. Any
other applications may be dangerous.
The manufacturer is not liable for
damage resulting from improper use or
operation.
Technical safety
Before setting up the machine,
check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install or use a damaged
machine.
Before connecting the machine,
ensure 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.
6
The electrical safety of this
machine can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the machine and an effective earthing
system which complies with 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 on-site wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
Do not connect the machine to the
mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
machine (e.g. danger of overheating).
The machine is built in accordance
with current safety requirements.
Unauthorised repairs could result in
unforeseen dangers for the user, for
which the manufacturer cannot accept
liability. Repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele approved
technician.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
machine until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
In the event of a fault or for
cleaning purposes, the machine is
only completely isolated from the
electricity supply when:
– it is switched off at the mains, or
– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
Warning and Safety instructions
This machine must only be
connected to the on-site water
supply using a new hose kit. Old hoses
must not be re-used. Check the hose
regularly for signs of wear. Change in
good time to avoid the risk of leaks and
subsequent damage.
Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. Only when these parts are
fitted can the safety standards of the
machine be guaranteed.
If the connection cable is faulty it
must only be replaced by a Miele
approved service technician to protect
the user from danger.
In countries where there are 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 guarantee.
Use
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.
Before using the machine for the
first time, check that the transit
fitting at the rear of the machine has
been removed (see section on
"Installation"). During spinning, a transit
fitting which is still in place may result in
damage to both the machine and
adjacent furniture or appliances.
Turn off the stopcock 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 of a drain
pump machine 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. Otherwise this will result in
flooding.
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.
Do not install this machine in rooms
where temperatures below freezing
may occur. Frozen hoses may burst
under pressure. The reliability of the
electronic control unit may be impaired
at temperatures below freezing point.

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 proprietary non-corrosive
descaling agents and strictly observe
the instructions on the packaging. If in
doubt contact the Miele Professional
Dept. or your Miele Dealer.
Textiles which have been
pre-treated in solvent based
cleaning agents must be thoroughly
rinsed in clean water before being
washed in the machine.
Never use solvent based cleaning
agents in this machine, as this may
result in damage to component parts
and create toxic fumes. Such
detergents also pose a fire and
explosion hazard.
Only use dyes specified by the
manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a washing machine. Always
observe the manufacturer's instructions
carefully.
Colour run and dye removers
contain sulphur compounds which
can cause damage such as corrosion.
Do not use these products in this
machine.
Avoid contact of stainless steel
surfaces (front, lid, casing) with
liquid cleaning and disinfecting agents
which contain chlorine or sodium
hypochlorite. These agents can have a
corrosive effect on stainless steel.
Aggressive vapours containing chlorine
bleach can also be corrosive. Do not
store open containers of these agents
near the machine.
8
Safety with children
This machine is not a toy! To avoid
the risk of injury do not allow
children to play on or near it or to play
with the controls. Supervise its use by
the elderly or infirm, and supervise
children whilst you are operating the
machine.
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.
Accessories
Accessory parts may only be fitted
when expressly approved by Miele.
If other parts are used, guarantee,
performance and product liability
claims will be invalidated.
Disposal of your old machine
Before discarding an old machine
disconnect it from the electricity
supply. Cut off the cable directly behind
the machine to prevent misuse. This
should be done by a competent
person.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

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
,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.
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately
several times before being included in
a mixed load. Always wash whites and
coloureds separately.
– Curtains: Remove lead weights first
or place in a laundry bag.
^ Empty all pockets.
,Foreign objects (e.g. nails,
coins, paper clips, etc.) can cause
damage to garments and
components in the machine.
Removing marks
^ Badly soiled areas, stains etc. should
be removed 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.
12
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners:
Any loose wiring in bras, shirt collar
stiffeners, etc. should be removed or
sewn in.
– Knitted garments, trousers and
jeans, T-shirts and sweat shirts: Turn
inside out, if recommended by the
manufacturer.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc before washing.
– Fasten duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being rolled up
inside them.
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 Load the drum
^ Shut the door with a gentle swing.
^ Press the Door button and open the
drum door.
The interior drum lighting will come on.
^ 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.
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.

How to wash correctly
D Add detergent
Take the level of soiling and water
hardness into account. 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.
– A burden to the environment.
See "Detergent" for further information.
^ Pull out the detergent drawer and
add detergent to the compartments
as follows:
i = Detergent for the pre-wash
(1/4 of the total amount
recommended).
This compartment is also used
for starch formulations when
starching separately.
j = Detergent for the main wash
§
= Fabric conditioner or
liquid starch

How to wash correctly
Payment system
If your machine has a payment system,
the amount of credit required will
appear in the display.
Credit will be lost if the door is
opened or the programme cancelled
after it has started.
E Start the programme
The indicator light for the Start button
will flash as soon as a programme can
be started.
^ Press the Start button.
^ The indicator light for the Start button
will now light up constantly.
If laundry is not removed immediately
the programme has finished, the
anti-crease phase will begin and the
drum will turn at intervals to help
prevent creasing.
Anti-crease will flash alternately with
Finish in the display to indicate that the
programme has finished.
^ Press the Door button to open the
drum door and remove the laundry.
Check that all items have been
removed from the drum. Items left in
the drum could discolour other items
in the next wash or become
discoloured themselves.
The drum lighting switches off once the
programme has started.
If delay start has not been selected, the
estimated programme duration will
appear in the display. This will count
down in one minute steps. During the
first 10 minutes the machine measures
how much water is being absorbed by
the laundry. The programme duration
may be shorter depending on this
absorbency rate.
The programme sequence is also
shown in the display. The
washer-extractor shows you when each
section of the programme is reached.
^ Check the folds in the door seal for
any small articles, e.g. buttons which
might be lodged there.
F Remove the laundry
^ Close the drum door. Otherwise there
is the danger of objects being placed
inadvertently in the drum. If these
remained unnoticed and were
washed in the next load, they could
damage the laundry.
Only remove laundry from the
machine once the drum has
stopped turning. Reaching into a
moving drum is extremely
dangerous and could result in injury.

Rinse and interim spin
There is a spin after the main wash and
between the rinses. A reduction in the
final spin speed will also reduce the
interim spin speed.
To omit the final spin (Rinse hold)
^ Select the Rinse hold setting. The
laundry will not be spun and will
remain suspended in the final rinse
water. This reduces creasing if the
laundry is not going to be removed
from the drum immediately after the
end of the programme.
– To start the final spin:
Use the + button to select the spin
speed you want. The final spin will
start immediately.
– To end the programme:
Press the – or the Door button. The
water will drain away. Press the Door
button again to open the door.
To omit rinse and interim spin and
the final spin
^ Select the Without spin setting. The
laundry is not spun after the final
rinse. The water will drain away and
the machine will go straight into the
anti-crease stage.
You can reduce the final spin speed.
However, you cannot select a final spin
speed higher than that shown in the

This machine has fully electronic
controls with automatic load
recognition. It takes in the right amount
of water required for the programme
depending on the amount of laundry
and its absorbency rate. This means
that programme cycles and durations
can vary.
The programme sequences outlined in
the chart are based on the basic
programme with a full load. Extra
options which can be selected have not
been taken into account.
The programme sequence display
shows the stage the programme has
reached.
26
Special features in the programme
sequences:
Anti-crease:
At the end of every programme, with
the exception of the Woollens
programme, the drum continues to turn
at intervals for up to 30 minutes to help
prevent creasing. The door can be
opened and laundry removed at any
time during the anti-crease phase.
1)
Pre-rinse: A pre-rinse without
detergent is carried out automatically
to remove dust.
2)
Run-up to spin: A run-up to spin is
carried out before the wash process
begins to deflate air from the pillows.
Subsequent water intake for the main
wash is through compartment j.
3)
In the Outerwear programme,
laundry is only spun after the main
wash.
4)
A third rinse is carried out in the Flour
+ programme.

Changing the programme sequence
Adding or removing laundry
after a programme has started
The door cannot be opened, if:
In some programmes you can add or
remove laundry after the programme
has started:
– the water is above a certain level.
^ Press the Door button to open the
drum door.
^ Add or remove items.
– the suds temperature is above 55°C.
– the programme has reached the
Final spin stage.
– the programme is locked because
the machine is fitted with a payment
system.
^ Close the drum door.
The programme will continue
automatically.
Please note:
Once a programme has started the
machine cannot recognise any
adjustment to the load.
For this reason, if laundry is added or
removed after the start of a programme,
the machine will always complete the
programme cycle assuming a full load
which can lead to an increase in the
programme duration shown in the
display.
29
Detergent
All modern detergents produced for
automatic washing machines are
suitable, including liquid, compact
(concentrated), tablets and special
application detergents. 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 by
proportion to suit smaller loads. Some
tablets do not dissolve as rapidly as
others and may not be suitable for
programmes with short durations.
Woollens and knitwear containing wool
mixtures and hand-washable garments
should be washed using a detergent
specifically designed for washing
woollens.
Instructions for use and recommended
amounts for a full load are given on the
detergent packaging.
Liquid detergent should be dispensed
using a ball provided by the
manufacturer for programmes without a
pre-wash.
When using liquid detergent for
programmes with a pre-wash you will
need to purchase a special container
from the Miele Spare Parts Department
which sits in the main wash
compartment j of the detergent
dispenser drawer. Add liquid detergent
to this container for the main wash and
to compartment i for the pre-wash.
30
The right amount to dispense will
depend on the following:
– 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.
– The quantity of the laundry (add the
recommended amount of detergent).
Detergent
Water softeners
External dispensing system
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.
This machine is suitable for connecting
to an external dispensing system. A
conversion kit is required which must
be fitted by a Miele approved service
technician.
Use a quantity of detergent as for soft
water.
Miele do not recommend connecting
the machine to an on-site water
softener.
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 softeners
3. Stain remover
This way the agents are distributed
more evenly.
31
Detergent
Fabric conditioners or 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.
^ Dispense according to the amount
specified on the packaging.
If starching frequently, clean the
dispenser compartment and
especially the siphon tube and
conditioner channel regularly. See
"Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer". Do not add starch
formulations or viscous liquid starch
to the § compartment as it will clog
up.
Adding fabric conditioner separately
Automatic dispensing of fabric
conditioner or liquid starch to
laundry at the end of a programme
^ Add fabric conditioner to
compartment §.
^ Select the Starch programme.
^ Press the Start button.
Adding starch separately
^ Prepare the starch solution in
accordance with manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging.
^ Add the starch to compartment i.
^ Select the Starch programme.
^ Press the Start button.
^ Add the fabric conditioner or 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 §.
32
Colour run and dye removers /
dyes
^ Do not use colour run or dye
removers in this machine.
^ Dyes suitable for use in a washing
machine 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. Always
observe the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
Cleaning and care
,Disconnect the machine from the
mains electricity supply.
^ Clean the casing with a mild
non-abrasive detergent or soap and
water. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ Clean the fascia panel with a damp
cloth and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ The drum and any other stainless
steel components 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.
,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.
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.
33
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer
Remove detergent residues regularly.
^ Clean the siphon.
^ 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.
34
1. Remove the siphon from
compartment § and rinse under
warm running water. Clean the
siphon tube in the same way.
2. Replace the siphon.
,Do not use a hose to wash the
machine down.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the water inlet filters
The machine has two filters to protect
the water inlet valve. These filters
should be checked every six months or
so, or more often if there are frequent
interruptions to the external water
supply.
To clean the filter in the inlet hose:
^ First turn off the stopcock.
Turn on the stopcock and check the
connection is watertight. If water
drips out, tighten the connection.
To clean the filter in the water inlet
valve:
^ Using pliers, carefully loosen the
ribbed plastic nut on the inlet valve
and unscrew.
^ Unscrew the threaded union
connecting the free end of the inlet
hose to the stopcock.
^ Remove the rubber seal 1 from the
recess.
^ Using pointed pliers, take hold of the
plastic filter bar 2 and remove.
^ Use pointed nose pliers to withdraw
the plastic filter by the bar (see
illustration). Clean, put back and
secure.
The two filters must be put back in
place after cleaning.
^ Clean the plastic filter.
^ Put the filter and seal back in the
reverse order and reconnect the
hose.

Installation and connection
Installation surface
,Do not install the machine near
or directly above an open gully or
floor drain. Moisture from these can
penetrate the machine and damage
the electric components.
A concrete floor is the most suitable
installation surface, being far less prone
to vibration during the spin cycle than
wooden floorboards or a carpeted
surface.
,If the machine is installed on an
on-site concrete or brick plinth, it
must be secured using the clamps
supplied with the machine.
Otherwise there is the danger of the
machine moving about.
Installing the washer-extractor
To manoeuvre the machine out of its
packing case to its installlation site,
hold it by the edge of the lid where it
protrudes to the rear of the machine as
well as by the handle recesses at the
front.
Please note:
^ Do not lift the machine by the drum
door.
,Ensure that the machine feet and
the floor are dry to prevent the
machine from slipping during the
spin cycle.
Removing the transit fittings
^ The machine must be level and
securely positioned.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
If installing on a wooden joist floor:
^ We recommend a plywood base (at
least 70 x 60 x 3 cm) The base
should span several joists and be
bolted to the joists and not only to the
floorboards. Check for the presence
of pipes and cables first.
If possible, install the machine in a
corner, as this is usually the most stable
part of the floor.
^ To remove the left and right covers
1. Use a screwdriver to prise out the
cover as illustrated.
2. Pull the cover forwards to remove.
49
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.
50
Installation and connection
,The machine must not be moved
without the transit fittings 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.
^ Fit the covers on to the two holes.
Then plug the holes as shown with
the caps.
^ Secure the transit bars to the back of
the washer-extractor. Make sure that
holes b are fitted over retainers a.
51
Installation and connection
Levelling the machine
Screwing out and adjusting the feet
The machine must stand perfectly level
on all four feet to ensure safe and
proper operation.
The four adjustable screw feet are used
to level the machine. All four feet are
screwed in when the machine is
delivered.
Incorrect installation may increase
electricity and water consumption and
may cause the machine to move about.
^ Using the spanner supplied turn
counter nut 2 in a clockwise
direction. Then turn counter nut 2
together with foot 1 to unscrew.
^ 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 sit
firmly up against the housing. Please
also check this for the feet which did
not need adjustment. Otherwise
there is the danger of the machine
moving about.
52
Installation and connection
Plumbing
This machine is approved for all UK
applications as suitable for category 5.
The product is listed in the WRAS
regulations advisory scheme directory
and is suitable for direct connection to
mains drinking water. No special
plumbing arrangements e.g. break
tanks are required.
Two Water Council approved double
check valves are supplied in the
accessories pack provided with this
machine. They should be fitted in
between the stopcocks and the water
inlet hoses.
The machine should be connected to a
mains water supply in accordance with
local and national safety regulations.
The machine is designed to operate
with a flow pressure of between 1 and
10 bar (100 kPa and 1,000 kPa). At
higher water pressures it is essential to
fit a reducer valve.
Connection to the water supply should
be carried out by a qualified plumber
and should incorporate a stopcock with
a 3/4" thread. The stopcock should be
fitted by a qualified plumber.
The machine is supplied as standard
with two hoses, for connection to a hot
and cold water supply.
Connection to the cold water supply
The cold water inlet hose (blue
stripes) must be connected to the
on-site cold water supply via a 3/4"
threaded union. It is not suitable for
connection to a hot water supply.
,The connection point is subject
to mains water pressure. Turn on the
stopcock slowly and check for leaks.
Correct the position of the washer
and union if appropriate.
Maintenance and care
Only use a genuine Miele hose should
you ever need a replacement. Miele
hoses are tested to withstand pressure
of at least 70 bar (7,000 kPa).
In order to protect the water inlet
valve, the two dirt filters - one in the
open end of the inlet hose, one at
the inlet point in the machine must
not be removed.
Extension hose
Longer hoses 2.5 or 4.0 m in length are
available from your Miele dealer or the
Miele Spare Parts Department as
optional extras.
53
Installation and connection
Connection to the hot water supply
To keep electricity consumption costs
down this machine can be connected
to a (ring) piped hot water supply. The
maximum temperature must not exceed
70°C.
It is not economical to run it from an
individual hot water supply if it is not in
continuous use, as the water in the
supply pipes cools down and more
energy would be required to reheat the
water.
For hot water connection the same
conditions apply as for cold water
connection.
The inlet hose with the red stripes (hot
water hose) is connected to the
stopcock.
For operational reasons the machine
must not be connected to hot water
only.
54
If the machine is not connected to a hot
water supply, the water settings for the
main wash, pre-wash and rinses must
be re-programmed and the hot water
inlet hose must be detached:
^ Go to the Settings menu/Supervisor
level and select the cold option for
each of the above.
The programme durations may be
longer.
^ Unscrew the inlet hose (hot water red stripes)
^ Plug the inlet connection with the cap
supplied.
Installation and connection
Connection to drainage
Machines with a drain pump
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre*. The
drain hose must not be kinked as this
would restrict 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.
* For a delivery head of more than 1 m
(up to a max. of 1.8 m) a second
duo-drain pump is available with the
corresponding kit from the Miele Spare
Parts Department or your Miele Dealer.
If required the drain hose can be
extended to a length of 5 m. The
necessary parts can purchased from
the Miele Spare Parts Department or
your Miele dealer.
Drain valve version
A motorised drain valve is used to drain
the machine. A DN 70 angle connector
can be used for draining the machine
via an on-site gully (with odour trap).
N.B. If not supplied with the machine an
angle connector is available through
the Miele Spare Parts Department.
The drain hose may be connected as
follows:
1. Direct into a sink or basin (drain
pump version):
Please note:
– 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.
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.
(Seal the hose into the pipe to avoid
flooding in case of the drainpipe
being blocked).
4. Connected securely to a floor gully.
55
Installation and connection
