Warning and
Safety instructions
Read the operating instructions through before
using this machine for the first time. This way
you will avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the machine.
Repairs to machines operated by gas,
steam or electricity must only be carried
out by fully trained and qualified service engineers. Unauthorized repairs could be dangerous.
The tumble dryer is only intended for drying fabrics, which have been washed in a
water solution, marked on the manufacturer’s
wash care label as being suitable for tumble
drying.
There is a danger of fire with the following, and on no account should they be
dried in this machine:
The electrical safety of this appliance can
only be guaranteed when continuity is complete between the appliance and an effective
earthing system which complies with local and
national regulations.
It is most important that this basic safety requirement is regularly tested by a qualified
electrician.

«M.-Nr.04989220/02 - GB - »
Warning and
Safety instructions
Disinfecting and cleaning agents often contain chlorides (salts). If these substances
dry onto the steel surfaces the residual chlorides attack the steel and can cause rusting.
To protect your machine from rust damage we
recommend only using chloride free disinfecting and cleaning agents for washing and disinfecting and for cleaning the machine. If you
are not sure about a particular agent contact
the manufacturer for advice.
If you accidentally spill an agent containing
chloride on the machine it should be rinsed off
with water and dried with a soft cloth.
Do not use a high pressure cleaner or
water jet to clean the machine.
In the event of a fault or for cleaning and
maintenance the gas control valve must
be shut and the gas emergency control at the
meter shut off.
Caution If the tumble dryer switches off
prematurely during the drying cycle, without the fault indication light showing, this could
be due to high temperatures in the area of the
motor.
Heater limiters stop the tumble dryer.
In this case please check the seals and locks
on the machine door and the fluff filter.
Check the condition of the air inlet and air outlet vents. If no damage is evident to any of
the parts checked, the dryer can be re-started.
If the fault occurs again, call the approved
Service engineer.
Open all doors and windows.
Close any shut off valves at the gas connection meter or mains supply immediately.
Shut off the gas-valve next to the machine.
If all gas valves are closed but there is still the
smell of gas in the room you should call you
local gas board immediately.
Important! Before signing off any commissioning, maintenance, conversion or repair
work as finished, all gas pipework from the
manual isolating valve to the burner nozzles
must be checked for soundness.
Pay special attention to the test points on the
multifunction control, the connection pressure
monitor and the burner setting pressure.
The tests must be carried out with the burner
switched on and switched off.
Accessories
Accessory parts may only be fitted when
expressly approved by Miele. If other parts
are used, guarantee, performance and product liability claims may be invalidated.
All personnel working with this machine must
be fully trained in all aspects of its use and
safety.
Keep these operating instructions in a safe
place.
Safety precautions to take if you smell
gas
-For gas heated dryers only(Natural gas usually has no smell of its own. In
the U.K. a smell is added by British Gas for
safey reasons).
If you smell gas you must act immediately.
Extinguish any flames.
Do not create any electrical sparks:
e.g. do not insert or withdraw any electrical
plugs or operate electrical switches such
as lights and door bells.
Do not enter a room with an open light
where there is the smell of gas.
Do not light cigarette lighters or matches.
Do not smoke.

hight start the drying programme again.
If the fault message occurs again please call
the Service department.
“Fluff filter”
The fluff filter is clogged.
Action: Clean the fluff filter at the end of the
programme.
Note:
The "Drying", "Cool air" and "Anti-crease" indicator lights flash if there is a power cut or if a
programme has been interrupted (e.g. when a
door has been opened and shut). They are
not indicative of a fault. The lights will stop
flashing when the "Start" button is pressed.
This only applies to gas heated machines.
“Gas”
The gas check light comes on when:
– The site gas supply to the machine is interrupted (e.g. gas stop valve has not been
opened).
Action: Open the gas stop valve.
– The gas connection pressure is too low
(there may be a drop in pressure in the gas
supply network).
Action: Inform your gas supplier.
The dryer cannot be switched on again
until the correct gas connection pressure
has been re-established.
– The venting duct is blocked or badly restricted.
Action: Check the venting duct and clean if
necessary.
If the gas / venting check light remains on
after these measures have been taken the
Service department must be called to deal
with the fault.

Before using for the first time
Preparation of washing
Before using for the first time
Wipe the inside of the drum with a soft dry
cloth before loading the drum with laundry.
Sort the laundry according to the level of dryness required. It is not necessary to sort according to size.
Preparing the laundry
Sort the laundry according to fabric type and
weave in order to achieve an even drying result.
Duvet covers and pillow cases should be
closed to prevent smaller items rolling up inside them.
For greater economy dry a full load, underloading is uneconomical. Do not overload as this
will impair the drying result and the laundry finish.
Not all textiles are suitable for drying in a tumble dryer. Therefore pay special attention to
the manufacturer’s instructions in the wash
care label.

before the drying programme has finished, ie,
the cooling down phase must be completed.
If hot laundry items are stacked or packed
they can be liable to auto-combustion.
If the laundry is rinsed with hot water in the
final rinse, the residual heat in the laundry,
together with the reduced residual moisture
content, will lead to shorter processing times
and save energy.
3. Select a programme.
4. If required select the “L Low temperature” and/or “l Buzzer” functions.
5. Insert coins or tokens.
6. Press in the “h Start” button.

Notes for the installer
The tumble dryer may only be installed and
commissioned by a Service Engineer or by an
authorized Service Dealer.
Pay careful attention to the enclosed installation instructions and the installation diagram.
Do not install the dryer in a room where there
is danger of frost.
Ensure that there is adequate ventilation for
operation in the room where it is installed.
Ensure that the air being drawn into the machine is fresh and that it does not contain chlorine, fluoride or solvent-vapours.
Machines heated by gas and electricity must
not be installed in the same room as dry cleaning machines which use solvents containing
CFCs. Escaping vapours break down into hydrochloric acid if ignited. This would damage
any laundry as well as the machine.
If installed in an adjacent room there must be
no exchange of air between them.
The area around the dryer - particularly
around the central air inlet must be kept free
from fluff particles, so that these do not get
taken into the machine. Any fluff trapped in the
machine could lead to operational damage.
The exhaust must not be led into a chimney
used by another gas, coal or oil heated appliance. The warm humid air should be directed
by the shortest route into the open air or into a
suitable venting duct. The duct must be so designed and installed to accommodate the high
throughput of air (few bends, as short a duct
as possible, well shaped and leakproof joints).
No filters or louvres should be built into the exhaust duct.
The connection between the exhaust ducting
and the exhaust connection on the dryer must
be airtight.
Where the exhaust is ducted directly into the
open air, the end of the duct should be protected against the weather, ideally by a downward angle of 90o .
To facilitate subsequent cleaning of the duct,
cleaning flaps or covers should be fitted on the
bends wherever possible.
With upward sloping exhaust ducting a condensate drain must be made at the lowest
point.
The dryer is fitted with an exhaust fan which
can be heard during operation. The noise
level of the fan can be reduced by fitting a
muffle to the dryer vent stub (available from
your Miele Dealer or the Miele Spare Parts
Department).
The machine does not need to be installed on
a base, however any uneveness in the floor
must be compensated for.
The machine must be installed evenly for it to
function smoothly.
To facilitate any subsequent service or maintenance work, the minimum dimensions and distance required from the wall, as shown in the
installation diagram, must be observed.
Coin operation unit.
The dryer can be fitted with a coin operation
unit*. The appropriate adapter* is also required.
The re-programming of the dryer which is necessary for fitting a coin unit can only be carried
out by the Miele Service department or a
Miele authorised service dealer.
All parts marked with an * are available from
Miele Spare Parts department and some Miele
dealers.

Notes for the installer
Steam connection
The steam connection must only be undertaken by an authorized installer.
Please pay attention to the installation diagram and instructions supplied with the machine. These are important for the connection
to steam.
All removable outer housing parts must be refitted after the steam connection has been
made.
Important notes for the heat exchanger
To avoid damage to the heat exchanger the
following must be observed during commissioning:
1. To avoid unecessary heat tension ensure
that heating up is even (no sudden bursts of
steam).
2. To prevent corrosion the intake water must
be treated. It is particularly important during
idle periods to ensure that air (oxygen and
CO 2) cannot get into the heat exchanger.
The condensate drain must be installed in
such a manner that the heat exchanger can
empty fully when it is not in use. There must
be no condensation at all left in it.
3. The heat exchanger must be protected from
aggressive gases on the side exposed to
the air.
4. Ensure that the heat exchanger does not
operate at a higher operating pressure or
temperature than is stated on the data plate.
Gas connection
The gas connection may only be carried out
by a suitably qualified (e.g. Corgi registered)
engineer, in accordance with local and national safety regulations. The enclosed installation diagram and the installation instructions
for gas must be followed to ensure correct gas
connection.
Please pay attention to the installation diagram and instructions supplied with the machine. These are important for the connection
to gas.
The gas group to which the machines have
been set at the factory is given on the Gas
Data sticker affixed to the rear of the machine.
When converting to another gas group, or to
liquid gas, a conversion kit is required, available from the Spare Parts department, (give
the model and serial number of the machine
as well as the gas type, group and connection
pressure in the country of installation when ordering). The installation instructions for gas
heated machines must be followed. Conversion may only be carried out by suitable competent persons.
All removable outer housing parts must be refitted after the gas connection has been made.
Do not attempt to undertake any repairs to gas
heated machines yourself. Repairs must only
be carried out by suitably competent persons
to ensure safety, e.g. gas engineers must be
registered. Please consult the Miele Customer Service department or an authorized
Service dealer.
5. Pay heed to all current local and national
guidelines, standards and regulations relating to the installation, operation and maintenance of heating and ventilation systems,
with particular regard to the use of heat exchangers.
