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 they are
offered for recycling.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your appliance. Please
do not therefore dispose of your
appliance with your household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.

Energy saving tips
To avoid unnecessarily long drying
times and high consumption of energy:
– Make sure that your laundry is
thoroughly spun before drying.
The higher the spin, the greater the
savings that can be made in energy
and time during drying.
– Load according to the optimum
amount of laundry recommended for
the programme being used (see
Programme chart).
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives a poorer quality of
drying and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
– Make sure the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
– Make sure the fluff filters are clean
before using the dryer.
– Check the condenser unit from time
to time and clean it when necessary.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the tumble dryer,
check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install or use a damaged tumble
dryer.
~ Before connecting the tumble dryer,
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.
~ The electrical safety of this tumble
dryer can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between it and
an effective earthing system which
complies with current local and national
safety regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and regularly tested, and where
there is any doubt the household wiring
system should be inspected by a
qualified electrician. Miele cannot be
held liable for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g.
electric shock).
~ Do not connect the tumble dryer to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
tumble dryer (e.g. danger of
overheating).
~ Unauthorised repairs could result in
unforeseen dangers for the user, for
which Miele cannot accept liability.
Repairs should only be undertaken by a
Miele approved service technician.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
tumble dryer until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
6
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. Only when these parts are
fitted can the safety standards of the
tumble dryer 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 the event of a fault or for cleaning
purposes, the tumble dryer is only
completely isolated from the electricity
supply when:
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug is withdrawn, or
– it is switched off at the mains, or
– the mains fuse is disconnected, or
the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
~ This tumble dryer may only be used
in mobile installations such as ships if a
risk assessment of the installation has
been carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
~ In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation by
cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
tumble dryer 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.
~ Do not make any alterations to the
tumble dryer, unless authorised to do
so by Miele.
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
following textiles must not be dried in
this tumble dryer:
– items which have not been washed.
– items, such as workwear, which have
not been thoroughly cleaned and
which are still soiled with grease, oil
or other desposits (such as
cosmetics, lotions etc).
If items have not been thoroughly
cleaned there is a danger that these
might ignite when heated, even after
they have been removed from the
dryer at the end of the programme.
– items which have been treated with
inflamable cleaning agents or
contain residues of acetone, alcohol,
benzine, petrol, stain remover,
turpentine, wax, wax remover or other
chemicals (e.g. mops and floor
cloths).
– items which have been splashed with
hair lacquer, hair spray, nail varnish
remover or similar substances.
When washing such heavily soiled
items ensure that you use sufficient
detergent and select a high
temperature. If in doubt, wash the
items several times.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
following must not be dried in this
tumble dryer:
– fabrics which contain a large
proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber-like materials. For example,
products made from latex foam
rubber, shower caps, waterproof
textiles, rubberised articles and items
of clothing and pillows with foam
rubber filling.
– items which contain padding or
fillings (e.g. pillows, jackets). If these
were damaged the filling could get
out with the risk of igniting in the
dryer.
~ In many programmes, the heating
phase is followed by a cooling down
phase to ensure that the items are not
too hot to handle when you remove
them (this also avoids the danger of the
laundry self-igniting). The programme is
not finished until the cooling down
phase is complete.
Ensure that you always wait until the
end of the programme before removing
the laundry.
~ Warning: Do not switch the tumble
dryer off before the end of the drying
programme. If this was done and the
laundry was then removed immediately,
it could give off a great amount of heat.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar
products must be used according to
the instructions on the manufacturer's
packaging.

Warning and Safety instructions
~ The dryer must not be used without
the fluff filters in place or if the fluff filters
are damaged in any way.
~ The fluff filters must be cleaned
regularly.
~ Always keep the area around the
tumble dryer free of dust and fluff. Dust
drawn into the tumble dryer can cause
blockages in the condenser unit over
time.
~ The dryer must not be used without
~ Do not let anyone sit or lean on the

through the drain hose instead of being
collected in the condensed water
container, make sure the drain hose is
securely attached if you hang it in a sink
or basin to avoid the hose slipping and

Notes on laundry care
Care symbols
Before drying check the drying symbol
on the care label. If there are no
symbols, dry at your own risk!
q . . . . . . . . . Dry at normal temperature
r . . . . . . . . . . Dry at a low temperature
s . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Do not tumble dry
– For delicates and fabrics with the
following care label r select Low
temperature.
Tips on drying
– Always observe the maximum
recommended loads given in the
"Programme chart". Never overload
the drum.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry, give a
disappointing drying result and
cause more creasing.
– Do not put soaking wet items into the
tumble dryer. Spin them thoroughly
after washing using the appropriate
spin speed.
– Use the Automatic programme for
drying mixed loads of cottons and
minimum iron fabrics.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can, however,
be partially dried using the Woollens
handcare programme.
10
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label, as
the surface of the fabric may
otherwise become rough. They can
be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not over-dry these
textiles. When purchasing these
garments it is advisable to take their
shrinkage properties into account.
– Minimum iron fabrics and 100%
cotton shirts or blouses tend to
crease more, the greater the load.
This is especially true of very fine
weaves.
Reduce the load or use the Minimum
iron - Hand iron programme.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– New dark coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately from
light coloured garments to avoid the
danger of colours running and
discolouring other garments or even
plastic components in the appliance.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.
How to dry correctly
Brief instructions
C Load the tumble dryer
The headings numbered (A, B, C ...)
show the operating sequence and can
be used as a brief guide to using your
dryer.
^ Press the Door button to open the
door.
^ Load the laundry loosely into the
drum.
A Sort the laundry
To ensure an even drying result
separate out the washed laundry and
sort it according to:
. . . the drying level required
. . . the type of fibre or weave
. . . size
. . . the moisture content after spinning.
,Make sure that objects e.g.
detergent dispensing balls have
been removed from the laundry.
They could melt, and cause damage
to the dryer or the laundry.
Do not overload the drum. See the
"Programme chart" for recommended
loads for each programme.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry and
give a disappointing drying result.
^ Before closing the door make sure
the fluff filter is correctly positioned.
– Check seams and stitching to ensure
that padding and linings are intact.
– Fasten duvet covers and pillow cases
to prevent small items from being
trapped inside them.
– Fasten hooks and eyes etc.
– Tie fabric belts and apron strings.
– Sew in or remove underwiring from
bras.
B Turn on the tumble dryer
^ Switch the dryer on by pressing the
I-On/0-Off button in.

Low temperature position.
Because the heater rating is reduced
for the Low temperature setting clothes
dry more slowly thus lengthening drying
times.
The cooling down phase takes place
before the end of a programme so that
the garments are not too hot to handle
(the Cool air indicator lamp will come
on). The programme is not finished until
the cooling down phase is complete.
The Woollens handcare and Smoothing
programmes do not include a cooling
down phase.
At the end of a programme
The Finish/Anti-crease indicator lamp
comes on.
The drum will continue to rotate at
intervals to prevent laundry creasing, if
you do not wish to remove it immediately. The anti-crease phase lasts for an
hour. There is no anti-crease phase on
the Woollens handcare programme.
During the anti-crease phase . . .
. . . (depending on the programme
selected) the indicator lamp for the
drying stage reached will also light up.
. . . the buzzer will sound at intervals.

Cleaning and care
Emptying the condensed water
container
The condensed water will be collected
in the condensed water container
unless the tumble dryer has been fitted
with a drain hose (see installation).
The condensed water container
should be emptied after every
drying cycle or as soon as the
Empty out container indicator lamp
comes on.
The drying programme will be
interrupted if the maximum level of the
condensed water container is reached.
The Empty out container indicator lamp
comes on and the buzzer sounds.
^ Open the shutter and empty out the
water.
^ To replace the container hold it at a
slight angle (as when removing it)
and push it in gently until you feel it
click into position.
^ Before starting a new programme,
first switch the tumble dryer off and
then on again. The Empty out
container indicator lamp will go out.
Condensed water should not be
consumed. It could lead to health
problems for people and animals.
^ Grip the container firmly with both
hands, as shown, and pull it out
slightly towards the right-hand side.
^ Hold the container with both hands
and carry it in a horizontal position.
16
Condensed water can be put to
household use (e.g. used in a steam
iron or humidifier). To ensure that any
residual particles of fluff in the
condensed water are removed before
use, pass it through a fine sieve or
paper filter first.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the fluff filters
The fluff which is created by the drying
process is collected by the fluff filters in
the door and the door opening. Clean
the filters after each drying programme.
Cleaning them whilst dry
Tip: You can also use a vacuum cleaner.
^ Remove any fluff from the hollow part
of the door holder. A cleaning brush
is available as an optional extra from
your Miele dealer or the Miele Spare
Parts Department, or use a vacuum
cleaner.
^ Once clean, push the filter back into
the door holder until it clicks into
position. Ensure it is facing the
correct way.
^ Also clean the door seal (2) with a
damp cloth.
^ Open the door and pull the fluff filter
(1) out of the door as illustrated.
^ Use your fingers to remove the fluff
from the two fluff filters in the door
opening.
^ Close the door.
^ Use your fingers to remove the fluff
from the surface of the filter.
17
Cleaning and care
Cleaning them with water
If there is a great deal of compacted
fluff on any of the filters, they can be
removed and cleaned under hot
running water.
^ Open the door and pull the fluff filter
out of the door as described

Transporting the tumble dryer to its
installation site
When moving the appliance, you can
hold it by the lid where it protrudes to
the rear of the dryer. To manoeuvre the
dryer out of its packing case to its
installation site you will also need to
hold it by the front feet. Do not lift the
appliance by the drum door.
30
– The building-under kit is supplied
with its own installation instructions.
– N.B. When built under drying times
may be longer.
– The electrical socket must be located
in an accessible position near the
tumble dryer.
With niche heights of:
– 830-840 mm, longer screw feet* are
required.
– 870-885 / 915-930 mm, one or two
raising kits* are required.
* accessory available to order.
Replacing the lid
If the lid has been removed in order to
fit a coverplate, ensure that, if the lid is
ever replaced, it fits securely into the
rear holders. Otherwise, it is not
properly secure for transport.
Installation
Levelling the tumble dryer
Room in which the dryer is located
Air taken in for use in the drying
process will be warm when it is
expelled from the front of the dryer. This
expelled air heats up the air in the
room. It is therefore very important to
ensure that the room is adequately
ventilated, particularly if the dryer is
located in a small room. Otherwise
running times and energy consumption
could be increased.
Washer-dryer stack
The appliance must be perfectly level to
ensure safe and proper operation.
The tumble dryer can also be
combined with a Miele washing
machine in a washer-dryer stack. The
appropriate "WTV" stacking kit
(available to order) to match your dryer
is required.
,Stacking kits must only be
installed by a suitably qualified fitter.
Before moving the tumble dryer
again (e.g. when moving house)
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
,The air inlet and outlet vents on
the front of the tumble dryer must not
be covered as this would prevent
sufficient ventilation for cooling the
condenser unit.
After each use a small quantity of
condensed water will collect in the area
around the pump. This water can run
out if the tumble dryer is tipped up
when it is being moved. It is a good
idea to run the Cool air programme for
approximately 1 minute before moving
the tumble dryer. Any remaining
condensed water will then be fed into
the condensed water container or out
through the drain hose.
31
Installation
External condensed water
outlet
^ There will be a small amount of
residual water in the drain hose.
Have a container ready to collect this.
General notes
When drying is in progress, condensed
water is pumped into the condensed
water container through the drain hose at
the back of the dryer. The condensed
water can also be drained off directly if
the tumble dryer is installed near a sink,
drain outlet etc. so that the condensed
water container does not have to be
emptied.
Drain hose length . . . . . . . . . . . . 1.50 m
Maximum delivery head . . . . . . . 1.50 m
Maximum drain hose length . . . . 4.00 m
,If the on-site water drainage
system is not fitted with a non-return
valve or an appropriate air gap, one
must be fitted to prevent the risk of
back-flow. (See "Installation conditions
requiring a non-return valve").
^ Pull the hose off its connection (see
arrow).
^ Allow any residual water to run into
the container.
^ Unwind the hose and pull it carefully
out of the holders.
The following optional accessories are
available:
– an extension hose
– a non-return valve kit for connection
to an external condensed water outlet
(includes an extension hose).
Maximum delivery head with
non-return valve fitted: 1.00 m
Arranging the drain hose
,Do not pull on the drain hose and
do not stretch it or allow it to become
kinked as it could get damaged.
32
^ Position the hose to the right or left
hand side as necessary.
Leave the hose in the middle holder to
prevent it from becoming kinked
inadvertently.
Installation
External drainage via a sink or gully
^ See "Front view" illustration.
,If you want to drain the water off
into a sink you will need to secure
the hose carefully, e.g. by tying it to a
tap to make sure it cannot slip
during use. Otherwise there is a risk
of overflowing water which could
cause damage.
Example: Connection to a sink drain
outlet
The drain hose with non-return valve
fitted can be connected directly to a
suitable sink drain outlet.
^ Use the bow-shaped guide to prevent
the drain hose from becoming
kinked.
Installation conditions requiring a
non-return valve
,Certain installation conditions
require the fitting of a non-return
valve (available as an optional
accessory). A non-return valve will
prevent the risk of back-flow out of
the dryer which could cause
damage.
^ Remove the following from the back
of the dryer at the top:
Adapter 1 and hose clip 3 behind it.
A non-return valve is required:
– If the tumble dryer is connected to a
sink drain outlet (see the following
section).
– If the tumble dryer is connected to a
drainage system already in use by
another appliance, e.g. a dishwasher
or washing machine.
33
Installation
^ Fit adapter 1 to the sink drain outlet
using nut 2.
If this nut has a flat disc in it you
should take the disc out first.
^ Attach the end of the hose 4 to
adapter 1.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose clip
3 up close to the nut.
,Non-return valve 5 has to be
