household electrical supply. This data
must correspond to prevent injury and
machine damage. Consult a qualified
electrician if in doubt.
Before installation or service,
disconnect the power supply to the
work area by unplugging the unit,
"tripping" the circuit breaker or
removing the fuse.
Do not use an extension cord to
connect this appliance to
electricity. Extension cords do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
Be certain your appliance is
properly installed and grounded by
a qualified technician. To guarantee the
electrical safety of this appliance
continuity must exist between the
appliance and an effective grounding
system. It is imperative that this basic
safety requirement be met. If there is
any doubt, have the electrical system of
the house checked by a qualified
electrician. The manufacturer cannot be
held responsible for damages caused
by the lack, or inadequacy, of an
effective grounding system.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation
The dishwasher must be installed
and connected in compliance with
the installation instructions.
Installation and repair work should
be performed by a Miele
authorized service technician. Work by
unqualified persons could be
dangerous and may void the warranty.
Do not install or use a damaged
dishwasher. A damaged appliance
is dangerous. Unplug the machine and
call your Miele dealer or the Miele
Technical Service Department.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely
and kept out of the reach of children.
Danger of suffocation!
This equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as recreational
vehicles or aircraft. However, under
certain conditions it may be possible for
an installation in these applications.
Please contact the nearest Miele dealer
or the Miele Technical Service
Department with specific requirements.
It is recommended that the
dishwasher only be connected to
the mains with the plug (no
hard-wiring). The outlet must be
accessible at all times after installation
to disconnect the dishwasher.
, WARNING - Fire hazard
Do not cover or crush the plug of
the appliance. Ensure that the cabinet
opening for the dishwasher provides
ample space for the plug. Installing the
dishwasher in a tight space may crimp
the power cord or put pressure on the
plug which could cause overheating.
This dishwasher should only be
installed under a continuous
counter top secured to adjacent
cabinetry.
Do not install this dishwasher
beneath a cooking surface, oven or
any appliance that radiates heat.
High temperatures from these units may
damage the dishwasher.
When installing the dishwasher
under a counter top and removing
the toekick, a build-under toekick must
be installed. Use the respective
installation kit. Danger of injuries.
Do not cut the intake hose or
submerge it in liquid. This hose
contains electrical components that
could cause injury or property damage
if cut or submerged.
Only connect the dishwasher to the
mains when all installation and
plumbing work is complete.
5
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Use
To reduce the risk of injury, do not
allow children to play in, on or near
the dishwasher.
Only use the dishwasher if all
panels are properly in place.
Do not tamper
with the controls.
Do not damage, sit or stand on the
door or baskets of the dishwasher.
Close the door when not in use.
Under certain conditions, hydrogen
gas may be produced in a hot
water system that has not been used
for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN
GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water
system has not been used for such a
period, turn on all hot water faucets and
let water flow from each for several
minutes before using the dishwasher.
This will release any accumulated
hydrogen gas. Do not smoke or use an
open flame during this time.
Be sure that all items placed in the
dishwasher are "dishwasher safe".
For items not labeled, check the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
When loading tableware, place
sharp items away from the door to
prevent damage to the seal. Load
sharp items pointing downwards to
prevent injuries.
Only use detergents and rinse aids
recommended for residential
dishwashers. Keep all detergents and
rinse aids out of the reach of children.
Do not inhale or swallow
detergents. Dishwasher detergents
contain irritant and corrosive
ingredients. They can cause burning in
the mouth and throat if swallowed, or
inhibit breathing. Consult a doctor
immediately if detergent has been
swallowed or inhaled.
Do not drink water from the
dishwasher! Harmful residues
could be present.
Do not fill the rinse aid reservoir
with detergent. It will damage the
rinse aid compartment.
If the power cord is damaged it
must only be replaced by a Miele
Service technician with a genuine Miele
power cord.
Disposal of an appliance
If the appliance is removed from its
installation site and will not be
used, remove the doorlock to the wash
cabinet to prevent children from locking
themselves in the machine.

Caring for the environment
Energy saving washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in the use of water and
electricity. For best results follow these
tips:
^ For lowest energy consumption and
the gentlest washing of china and
crystal, connect the dishwasher to a
cold water source.
^ For fastest possible wash times, yet
higher energy consumption, connect
the dishwasher to a hot water source.
^ Make full use of the baskets without
overloading for the most economical
washing.
^ Use the correct amount of detergent
and rinse aid.
^ When using powder or gel detergent,
reduce the amount to 2/3 of the
normal amount when washing a small
load.
^ Choose a program that best suits the
degree of soiling and the type of
dishes being washed.
^ For small loads select "Short".

tall, narrow and hollow items,
i.e. vases or champagne glasses,
should be placed in the center of the
basket rather than in the corners.
^ Concave based items such as mugs
or bowls, should be placed at an
angle so that water does not pool.
14
^ The spray arms must not be blocked
by items that are too tall or hang
through the baskets. Check
clearance by manually rotating the
spray arms.
^ Place very small items in the cutlery
tray or basket so they do not fall to
the bottom of the wash cabinet.
^ Food residue and spilled liquids
should be cleaned from the sides of
the dishwasher door. These are
outside of the wash cabinet and are
not cleaned by water from the spray
arms.

User Maintenance Instructions
To prevent accidents
and machine damage,
read these instructions
before installation or use.
Cleaning and Care
Exterior
Check and clean your dishwasher
regularly (approx. every 4-6
months). This will help avoid
problems and faults.
,Abrasive cleaning agents, glass
cleaning agents, all-purpose
cleaners, thinner or ammonium
cleaners should not be used on the
dishwasher. They will damage the
surface.
Wash cabinet
Generally, the wash cabinet is self
cleaning if the correct amount of
detergent is used.
The wash cabinet can be cleaned with
a dishwasher cleaner such as "Dis
Cleaner" available from your Miele
dealer, Miele or online at
www.store.miele.com.
^ Only use a conditioner suitable for
your kitchen cabinetry.
^ Clean wood only with a damp cloth
and wipe dry.
^ Stainless steel surfaces can be
cleaned using a non-abrasive
stainless steel cleaner or with
dishwashing detergent and warm
water.
^ To help prevent resoiling, a
conditioner for stainless steel can
also be used. Apply sparingly with
even pressure.
Control panel
^ Plastic control panel should only be
wiped with a damp cloth or suitable
cleaning agent designed for use on
plastic.
^ For stainless steel panels see
information above.
Door and the door seal
^ Wipe the door seals regularly with a
damp cloth to remove food deposits.
^ Food residue and spilled liquids
should be wiped from the sides of the
dishwasher door. These are outside
of the wash cabinet and are not
cleaned by water from the spray
arms.
40
,The stainless steel surfaces and
controls may become discolored or
damaged if not cleaned regularly.
The appliance front and controls are
not scratch proof.
Remove spills immediately.
Cleaning and Care
Triple filter system
The triple filter system in the base of the
wash cabinet prevents food from being
redeposited on dishes. It also protects
the circulation pump from damage
caused by foreign objects (e.g. broken
glass, bones).
,The machine must not be used
without all the filters in place!
^ Check and clean the filter system
every 4-6 months or whenever a
foreign object is trapped.
The level of soiling and time it takes
before the filters need cleaning will vary
depending on your household.
^ Turn off the dishwasher before
cleaning.
^ Turn the handle counterclockwise to
release the triple filter system.
^ Lift the filter combination out of the
machine. Remove any solid particles
and rinse under running water. Scrub
with a nylon brush if necessary.
41

that they rotate freely.
43
Cleaning and Care
Cleaning the water inlet filter
A filter is incorporated into the intake
hose attached to the dishwasher’s shut
off valve. If your water is hard or the
pipes contain sediment, this filter may
clog and prevent enough water from
entering the wash cabinet.
,The plastic housing of the water
connection contains electrical
wiring. Do not submerge the
housing in liquid.
Do not cut the intake hose or
submerge it in liquid.
Installing an in-line water filter
If your water contains a large number of
insoluble substances, a filter between
the water valve and the intake hose
connection is recommended. These
filters can be purchased from Miele.
Cleaning the filter
^ Turn off the dishwasher and pull the
plug.
^ Turn off the water supply.
^ Unscrew the intake hose.
44
^ Carefully remove the rubber seal.
^ Remove the filter using needle nose
pliers and rinse it under running
water.

water valve, checking that it is not
cross-threaded.
^ Slowly turn on the water supply and
test for leaks.

49
Plumbing
Connection to the water supply
,Do not drink water from the
dishwasher!
– The dishwasher can heat its own
water to the temperature required by
the wash program. This allows for
connection of the machine to either a
hot or cold water source. For lowest
energy consumption connect the
dishwasher to a cold water source.
For fastest possible wash times, with
slightly higher energy consumption,
connect the dishwasher to a hot
water source. All programs use hot
water in the rinse cycles.
– The inlet hose is approx. 5 ft. (1.5 m)
long. A 5 ft (1.5 m) flexible metal
hose (pressure resistant up to
2030 psi) is available.
– The water inlet hose comes
equipped with a 3/4" female hose
thread connector. This can be
directly connected to a water supply
with 3/4" MHT (male hose thread
ends).
– Water pressure: Must be between
4.5 - 145 psi (0.3 - 10 bar).
50
,Do not cut the intake hose. It
contains electrical wiring. If the hose
is cut, the dishwasher will not work.
There will be a waterleak and you
could be injured. If the hose is too
long, coil it neatly and place it
behind the machine.
Plumbing
Drainage
Venting the drainage system
– The machine comes equipped with a
built-in non-return valve on the
discharge side to prevent waste
water from flowing back into the
dishwasher.
If the dishwasher drain hose is
connected to a floor drain or to a drain
pipe that is less than 8" (20 cm) above
the floor, the drain must be vented.
Otherwise the water inside the
dishwasher may siphon out during the
wash program.
– The dishwasher is equipped with a
5 ft (1.5 m) flexible drain hose with an
internal diameter of 7/8" (22 mm).
– Drain hose extensions and adapters
can be ordered from Miele.
The maximum drain hose length is
13 ft. (4 m), max. drain height: 39"
(1 m).
^ Open the dishwasher door and
remove the lower basket.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove.
– If the hose is to be directly fitted to
the drainage outlet on site, use the
supplied hose clip.
– The hose can be installed to the left
or right side.
– The existing drain pipe for the drain
hose is designed for various hose
diameters. The drain pipe must be
shortened if the drain pipe extends
too far into the drain hose. The drain
hose could get clogged.
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
^ Cut off the vent cap located at the
right rear of the triple filter system, as
illustrated.
– Make sure the hose is installed
without kinking, pressure or being
pulled.
