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

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 or
salt container with detergent. It will
destroy the rinse aid compartment and
water softener.
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.
^ If the dishwasher is connected to hot
water, select "Energy Saver" when
washing light to normally soiled
dishware. The water will not be
heated, therefore the dishes may be
more wet at the end of this program
than when using other programs.
^ 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 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".

Before using for the first time
Checking the water hardness
Every dishwasher is tested before
leaving the factory. Any water
remaining in the machine is from the
final factory test and does not
indicate that the machine has been
used.
The water hardness is measured by the
sensor can be displayed.
See "Settings J - Water hardness".
External water softener
Water softener
To achieve good cleaning results, the
dishwasher needs soft water. Hard
water results in calcium deposits on
dishware and in the dishwasher.
If your tap water hardness is above 4°d
(4 gr/gal [US]), the water should be
softened. This takes place
automatically in the unit’s integrated
water softener.
The water softener sets automatically to
the local water hardness.
If the dishwasher is connected to an
external water softener unit which is
regenerated with salt, the water
hadness must still be set in the
dishwasher.
^ Set the dishwasher to the water
hardness of the external water
softener. If you don't know the value,
set the dishwasher water hardness to
8°d (8 gr/gal [US]). See "Settings J,
External water softener".
If the hardness of your local supply
is constantly lower than 4°d (4 gr/gal
[US]), you do not need to add water
softener salt.
The "Insufficient salt" message will
turn off automatically.
For best results use salt when using
3 in 1 tabs. When selecting the
"3 in 1" detergent setting, the salt
dosage is reduced to 1/3 - 1/4 of the
normal amount.
13
Before using for the first time
Filling the salt container
,Inadvertently filling the salt
container with dishwashing
detergent will damage the water
softener.
,Only use water softener salt
specially formulated for
dishwashers. Other salts may
contain insoluble additives which
can impair the water softener.
^ Remove the lower basket and
unscrew the salt container lid.
When opening the salt container,
water will run out. Open the
container only to refill salt.
Important: The salt container must
be filled with 2 quarts (2 l) of water
before adding salt for the first
time. Water does not have to be
added with subsequent refills.
14
^ Place the provided funnel over the
salt container. Carefully fill with salt.
The salt container holds approx.
4.5 lbs (2 kg) of salt. As it is filled,
water will run out.
^ Clean any excess salt from the
threads of the container opening.
Screw the lid on firmly.
^ If the dishwasher will not be used
immediately, run the "Short" program.
This will remove any traces of salt
from inside the wash cabinet.
Before using for the first time
Salt refill message
^ When the display shows k Refill
salt, refill the salt after the program
has finished.
^ Confirm with OK.
The message will clear from the display.
After the container has been filled, the
water softener is automatically
reactivated the next time the
dishwasher is started. The Refill salt
message will show again during this
process.
^ Confirm again with OK.
15
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Rinse aid helps to prevent spotting on
dishes and glassware. The rinse aid is
filled in the reservoir and the set
amount will be automatically dosed.
,Filling the rinse aid reservoir with
detergent will damage the reservoir.
Only pour rinse aid formulated for
residential dishwashers into the
reservoir.
When using "2 in 1" or "3 in 1"
detergents, rinse aid is not needed.
Adding rinse aid
^ Pour liquid rinse aid into the reservoir
until it its visible on the surface of the
screen.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
3.7 oz (110 ml) of liquid.
^ Press on the flap until you hear it
click shut. Failure to close it all the
way allows water to enter the
reservoir during the wash program.
^ Clean any spilled rinse aid. The flap
will remain closed during normal
operation.
To optimize the wash result, the rinse
aid dosage can be adjusted. See
"Settings J - Rinse aid".
^ Press the button in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
16
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid refill message

first displayed, there will be enough
rinse aid left for 2 - 3 washes.
^ Refill rinse aid after the program has
finished.
If the "2 in 1" or "3 in 1" function is
selected, the Refill rinse aid will not
come on.
See "Settings J - Detergent".
^ Confirm with OK.
The message will clear from the display.
17
Loading the dishwasher
,Do not wash items soiled with
ash, sand, wax, grease or paint in
the dishwasher.
Ash and sand do not dissolve and
will be distributed throughout the
inside of the dishwasher.
Wax, grease and paint will cause
permanent discoloration and
damage to the dishwasher.
^ Scrape food from dishes before
placing them in the dishwasher,
rinsing is not necessary.
^ Some foods contain natural dyes,
e.g. carrots or tomatoes. Plastic items
may discolor permanently if they
come in contact with food dyes.
^ All items can be placed anywhere in
the baskets.
^ Load dishes so that water can reach
all surfaces. Do not place dishes or
cutlery inside other pieces.
^ Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
^ Hollow items such as cups and
glasses should be placed upside
down in the baskets.
^ To ensure good water coverage,
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.
18
^ 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.

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.

damaged if not cleaned regularly.
The appliance front and controls are
not scratch proof.
Remove spills immediately.
Cleaning and Care
Triple filter system
Cleaning the triple filter
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, etc.).
^ Turn off the dishwasher before
cleaning.
,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
household.
The display shows W Check filter after
40 wash cycles (default setting).
The filter check frequency can be
set from 30 to 60 cycles. See
"Settings J - Filter check".
^ Turn the handle counterclockwise to
release the triple filter system, a.
^ Remove the triple filter from the
machine. Clean any solid particles
and rinse under running water. Scrub

63
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

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.
64
^ 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.
Cleaning and Care
Cleaning the drain pump and
non-return valve

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.
– To use the "Energy Saver" program, a
hot water connection of minimum
115°F / 45°C and maximum 140°F /
60°C (water intake temperature) is
necessary.
The higher the water intake
temperature, the better the cleaning
and drying results.
– 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 ¾" female hose
thread connector. This can be
directly connected to a water supply
with ¾" MHT (male hose thread
ends).
– Water pressure: Must be between
4.5 - 145 psi (0.3 - 10 bar).
If the water pressure is lower, the
display shows Water intake
see "Frequently asked questions".
70
,Do not cut the intake hose. It
contains electrical wiring. If the hose
is cut, the dishwasher will not work.
There will be a water leak 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.
