Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The packing material protects the
tumble dryer from transport damage.
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
recycled.
Disposing 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 the appliance with your
household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Chartered Agent
for advice.
Ensure that your old appliance 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.
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives poorer quality of
drying and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
– Make sure that the room temperature
is not too high. If there are other heat
producing appliances in the room in
which the dryer is located, make sure
the room is well ventilated and switch
the other appliances off if possible.
– After every cycle, remove the fluff
from the surfaces and the fluff filters
(see "Cleaning and Care").

Warning and Safety instructions
~ It is essential to read these instructions.
This tumble dryer conforms to current safety requirements.
Inappropriate use can, however, lead to personal injury and
damage to property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the tumble dryer,
please read these instructions carefully before using it for the first
time. They contain important information on its safety, installation,
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.
Correct application
~ This tumble dryer is designed for domestic use and for use in
similar environments by guests in hotel or motel rooms, bed &
breakfasts and other typical living quarters. This does not include
common/shared facilities or commercial facilities within hotels,
motels or bed & breakfasts.
~ This tumble dryer must only be used to dry items which have
been washed in a water solution and which are marked on the
manufacturer's care label as being suitable for tumble drying. "Dry
cleaning kits" for freshening up garments in a tumble dryer are
increasingly available on the market. If using, do so at your own risk,
and follow the instructions provided on the packaging.
Any other usage is not supported by the manufacturer and could be
dangerous. Miele cannot be held liable for damage resulting from
incorrect or improper use or operation of the tumble dryer.
6
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The tumble dryer is not intended for outdoor use.
~ This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience or knowledge, unless they are supervised whilst
using it or have been shown how to use it correctly by a person
responsible for their safety.
~ This tumble dryer must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
Safety with children
~ Keep children away from the tumble dryer at all times. It is not a
toy! To avoid the risk of injury do not allow them to play on or near it
or to play with its controls. Supervise children whilst you are using it.
~ Older children may only use it if its operation has been clearly
explained to them, and they are able to use it safely, recognising the
dangers of incorrect use.
7
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 appliance, make sure that the connection
data on the data plate (voltage and rated load) match the mains
electricity supply. If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
~ The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing
system. 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).
~ The heat pump technology in the
tumble dryer uses a refrigerant which is condensed by a
compressor. It is led in a closed circuit through the heat exchanger
unit where heat exchange with the circulating drying air takes place.
It is normal for humming noises caused by the heat pump
technology to be heard during the drying process. This does not
impair the efficient functioning of the dryer.
– The refrigerant is not flammable or explosive.
– In general it is not necessary to leave the dryer standing for any
length of time before it is connected to the mains provided it has
been transported and installed correctly (see "Installation").
~ 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 appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Unauthorised repairs could result in unforeseen dangers for the
user, for which Miele cannot accept liabilty. Repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele approved service technician.
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
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 withdrawn.
~ Do not make any alterations to the tumble dryer, unless
authorised to do so by Miele.
~ In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance 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 warranty.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
, Caution! Risk of fire.
To avoid the possible danger of fire, please
read these warnings carefully.
, A clogged filter is a fire hazard!
The fluff filter must be cleaned after every programme.
~ Remove all objects from pockets such as lighters and matches.
~ 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 that have been soiled with substances such as cooking oil,
acetone, petrol, kerosene, spot removers, turpentine, waxes, wax
removers and other chemicals (e.g. mops and floor cloths) should
be washed in hot water with extra detergent before being dried in
the tumble dryer.
– Items which have been splashed with hair lacquer, hair spray, nail
polish remover or similar substances.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
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.
~ Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when
exposed to heat sources such as in a tumble dryer.
The items become warm, causing an oxidation reaction in the oil.
Oxidation creates heat.
If the heat cannot escape, the items can become hot enough to
catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can prevent
heat from escaping and so create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics contaminated with vegetable or
cooking oil, or hair care products, be placed in a tumble dryer, they
should first be washed in hot water with extra detergent - this will
reduce, but not eliminate, the hazard.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following textiles or products must
not be dried in this tumble dryer:
– Items which have been dry-cleaned (for example with a chemical
treatment).
– 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.
– Fabrics 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.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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, remove and spread out all
items quickly so that the heat is dissipated.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar products must be used according
to the instructions on the manufacturer's packaging.
~ The tumble dryer is not to be used if industrial chemicals have
been used to clean it.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The tumble dryer must not be used
– without the fluff filters in place or if the fluff filters are damaged.
– without the fine filter in place or if the fine filters are damaged.
This would cause an excessive build-up of fluff which in turn would
cause a fault!
~ After every cycle, remove the fluff from the surfaces and the fluff
filters (see "Cleaning and care").
~ Fluff must not be allowed to accumulate around the tumble dryer.
~ The fluff filters and the fine filter must be thoroughly dried after
cleaning. Damp or wet filters could cause operational faults.
~ Do not install the tumble dryer in a room where there is a risk of
frost occurring. At temperatures around freezing point the tumble
dryer may not be able to operate properly.
There is a risk of damage if the condensed water is allowed to
freeze in the pump and in the drain hose.
~ If the water is drained externally 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 the water causing damage.
~ Condensed water is not drinking water. It can cause health
problems in both people and animals.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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.
~ Do not lean on the door. This can cause the tumble dryer to tip
over.
~ Always close the door after use.
This way you will avoid the
danger of
– children climbing onto or into the dryer or hiding things in it.
– pets or other small animals climbing into it.
~ The tumble dryer must not be hosed down.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts and accessories with this
tumble dryer. If non-Miele parts are used, warranty, performance
and product liabilty claims may be invalidated.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

the end of this booklet for more details.
Perfect Dry indicator light
The Perfect Dry system measures the
laundry's residual moisture in
programmes with drying levels and
provides a more precise drying result.
The programme duration will be shown
after a short time and the indicator light
will go out.
Once the selected drying level has
been reached, the Perfect Dry indicator
light will remain on until the end of the
programme.
The Perfect Dry indicator light always
remains dark during the following time
controlled programmes: Woollens,
Silks, Cool air, Warm air, Gentle
smoothing.
Estimated time remaining
The expected time will automatically be
displayed (Estimated time remaining).
The following factors all affect the
estimated time remaining: Residual
moisture content after spinning; type of
fabric; size of load; room temperature;
fluctuations in power supply.
The electronics continually assess
conditions in the tumble dryer and
adjust the estimated time remaining for
a more accurate reading. Because of
this, the time displayed can alter during
the course of a programme.
In the same way, programmes may
finish early. This can happen with
particularly fine fabrics, very small
loads or if items were partly dry
beforehand.
After starting the programme, the
electronics will measure the duration of
the programme (Estimated time
remaining). The Perfect Dry indicator
light will flash during this time.

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 fabrics for at least
30 seconds before drying.
– Use the Automatic plus programme
for drying mixed loads of cotton and
minimum iron fabrics.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the garment care
label, as the surface of the fabric
may otherwise become rough.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not overdry these
textiles. When purchasing these
garments, it is advisable to take their
shrinkage properties into account.
– Minimum iron fabrics tend to crease
more, the larger the load. This is also
the case for garments made from
very fine weave fabrics, such as
shirts or blouses.
Make sure you select a suitable
programme. If in doubt, divide the
garments into smaller loads and
select the Gentle tumble Extra
option.
– 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 dryer.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.
– Use the Basket programme for
drying / airing items which are not
suitable for drying with mechanical
action. Important: You must use a
Miele drying basket (optional
accessory).

Cleaning the cooling fins
(Grille at bottom right)
,Generally, the cooling fins do not
need to be cleaned. They should
only be cleaned if excessive
quantities of dust and lint are
causing unusually long drying times.
,To avoid damaging the cooling
fins, run the vacuum cleaner (using
dusting brush or crevice nozzle)
lightly across them without pressure.
Use the yellow opener supplied to open
the grille at the bottom right of the front
of the tumble dryer.
^ Carefully vacuum up any dust or lint
on the cooling fins which may be
causing a blockage.
^ Insert the opener in the top-centre of
the grille and carefully lift the opener
to pry open (see arrow) the grille.
^ Now remove the grille by pulling it
diagonally upwards.
^ Check whether the cooling fins are
blocked.
,Danger of injury!
Do not touch the cooling fins as they
are very sharp and may cut your
fingers.
^ Replace the grille by inserting at the
bottom first.
^ Then click it into position at the top.

Transporting the dryer
When moving the dryer, hold it by the
lid where it protrudes to the rear. To
manoeuvre the machine out of its
packing case to its installation site, hold
it by the front feet as well as by the
edge of the lid where it protrudes to the
rear of the washing machine.
,Only transport the dryer as
shown in the following illustrations.
,If the tumble dryer has not been
transported as described, then it
must be left to stand for at least 1
hour before it is connected to the
electricity supply. Otherwise the
heat pump can be damaged.
49
Installation and connection
Installation site
,The appliance must not be
installed behind a lockable door, a
sliding door or a door with a hinge
on the opposite side to that of the
tumble dryer, in such a way that a
full opening of the tumble dryer door
is restricted.
,The cool air intake panel at the
front of the dryer must not be
blocked or covered, e.g. by a
laundry basket, as this would cause
a fault.
Building under a continuous
worktop/in a row of kitchen units
,It is very important to avoid a
build-up of heat.
The warm air which is expelled from
the rear of the dryer must be able to
dissipate.
Warm air which cannot dissipate
could cause a fault.
A build-up of heat can be avoided by:
– Adjusting the screw feet so that there
is a gap of at least 20 mm between the
floor and the bottom of the dryer.
– Creating a gap for the dryer in the
kitchen furniture plinth facing.
– Creating ventilation gaps in the
kitchen unit.
N.B. When built under, drying times
may be longer.
50
,The dryer should not be installed
next to a refrigeration appliance. The
warm air expelled from the rear of
the dryer would increase the
temperature around the refigeration
appliance's heat exchanger causing
the compressor to run continuously.
If it is not possible to install the dryer
anywhere else, then the refrigeration
appliance must be sealed off from
the dryer.
,A building-under kit (Miele
accessory, available to order) with a
coverplate to replace the appliance's
lid is required if building under a
worktop. It must be fitted by a suitably
qualified person to ensure electrical
safety. The coverplate included in the
building-under kit replaces the
appliance's lid. It is necessary to fit the
coverplate for electrical safety
reasons.
– Fitting instructions are supplied with
the conversion kit.
– N.B. When built under, drying times
may be longer.
– The electrical socket must be
located in an accessible position
near the machine.
Installation and connection
With niche heights of:
– 830-840 mm, longer screw feet* are
required.
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
– 870-885 mm / 915-930 mm, one or
two raising kits* are required.
,The gap between the tumble
* accessory available to order
N.B. If you wish to push the tumble
dryer under a worktop and there is
space to do this without removing the
lid, the building-under kit is not
necessary. Otherwise the
building-under kit is essential.
Levelling the machine
dryer and the floor must not be
minimized by a plinth facing,
high-piled carpets etc., as this
would prevent sufficient ventilation.
Before moving the tumble dryer
again (e.g. when moving houses)
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
it. Any remaining condensed water will
then be fed into the condensed water
container or out through the drain hose.
Washer-dryer stack
The machine 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* to
match your dryer is required.
* accessory available to order
,Stacking kits must only be
installed by a suitably qualified fitter.

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 machine 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.
^ There will be a small amount of
residual water in the drain hose.
Have a container ready to collect this.
52
^ 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 and connection
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.
53
Installation and connection
^ 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.
1 Adapter
2 Nut
3 Hose clip
4 End of the hose
5 Non-return valve
6 Tumble dryer drain hose
54
,Non-return valve 5 has to be
fitted with the arrow pointing in the
direction of flow (i.e. towards the
sink). Otherwise water will not drain
out of the machine.
^ Fit non-return valve 5 to the tumble
dryer drain hose 6, making sure it is
fitted in the correct direction (see
arrow on non-return valve).
^ Secure the non-return valve using
hose clips.
