~ 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, otherwise any
subsequent damage will not be covered by the
guarantee.
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by
genuine Miele original spare parts. Only when these
parts are fitted can the safety standards of the
machine be guaranteed.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ This machine must not be operated in the same
room as dry cleaning machines which use solvents
containing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Escaping
vapours break down during combustion into
hydrochloric acid which can have a detrimental effect
on both the laundry and the machine. Even when
such machines are installed in separate rooms, care
should be taken to ensure that no exchange of air
can take place.
~ The dryer must have a constant supply of fresh air.
Vapours containing chlorine, fluorine or other solvents
must not be able to reach the dryer.
~ The (cool) air intake vents are located at the back
of the dryer and the exhaust vent in the lid. These
must not be blocked or hindered in any way. Do not
cover the machine lid with cloths, boxes or similar
items (see installation instructions).
~ Benzine, petrol, paraffin or any easily flammable
liquid must not be stored or used near the tumble
dryer. Fire and explosion risk.
~ To ensure the correct performance of the tumble
dryer and to prevent the risk of faults and fire, it is
important to check the machine and carry out
maintenance on a regular basis.
Use
~ The tumble dryer is must only be operated if the
heat pump module is connected to the electricity
supply and attached to the tumble dryer.
Ensure that the room in which the dryer is located is
sufficiently ventilated (see installation instructions).
~ Make sure that the heat pump is attached to the
tumble dryer correctly. There must be no gap
between the heat pump and the dryer. It must not be
possible to gain access between the heat pump and
the machine. Danger of injury.
~ This tumble dryer is not intended for use by
people 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 by a by a person
responsible for their safety.
~ 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 the
controls. Supervise children whilst you are using it.
~ Always close the door after use to avoid the risk of
~ Any removable outer panels must be back in
place, and all moving or electrical parts shielded
before the machine is switched on.
~ Whilst the dryer is in use, the porthole glass and
drum door frame can become very hot. Laundry will
also be very hot if you remove it early.
~ Always make sure that the drum is stationary
before reaching into the machine to remove laundry.
Reaching into a moving drum is extremely
dangerous.
~ Take care in the area of the hinges of the drum
door and the fluff filter compartment flap and also the
maintenance panel at the rear. Danger of injury.
Ensure that you always use the handles and the quick
release catches. Be aware of possible hazards when
installing the dryer and the heat pump.
~ The drum door must be able to be opened to its
fullest extent. This area must not be restricted by
doors or structural features.
~ Do not use the dryer without the fluff filter in place.
Fire risk.
A damaged fluff filter must be replaced before the
machine is used again.
Otherwise fluff and lint will cause a blockage in the
airways and the heating system, and the correct
functioning of the machine cannot be assured.
~ Cleaning and disinfecting agents often contain
chlorine-based substances. Do not let such agents
come into contact with the stainless steel surfaces, as
the chlorine can have a corrosive effect and cause
rust. Use chlorine-free agents for washing and
disinfecting and also for cleaning stainless steel
surfaces to protect them from corrosion. If in doubt,
confirm with the manufacturer that their product is
suitable. If any agent containing chlorine comes into
contact with the stainless steel surfaces, wipe it away
immediately with clean water. Then dry with a soft
cloth.
~ Do not use a pressure washer or hose to clean the
tumble dryer. Only the heat exchanger and the area
behind the maintenance panel (accessed via the
quick release catches on the rear) may be rinsed with
a jet of water (max. 4 bar).
~ After use, the refrigerant pipework and adjacent
components can present a danger as the surfaces
can be hot or cold and components can be under
pressure. Wait until the unit has had time to cool
down before opening any outer panels.
– children climbing into the dryer or hiding things in
it.
– pets or other small animals climbing into it.
~ Do not use a machine with damaged controls or
cables. These must be repaired before it is used
again.
~ Do not damage, remove or bypass the safety
features, fixtures and control elements of this
machine.

Warning and Safety instructions
Precautions to take if there is a leakage of
refrigerant
Using accessories
~ The refrigerant circuit in the heat pump unit
contains a non-poisonous, odourless refrigerant
(R134a) which evaporates rapidly when it is released.
It is heavier than air and so poses a risk of
asphyxiation in small, unventilated rooms.
expressly approved by Miele. Using spare parts or
accessories from other manufacturers will invalidate
the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.
~ If you detect any damage to the copper pipework
on the heat pump unit, do not operate the machine
and vacate the room.
– Alert everyone present to the danger.
– Please refer to the Safety Data Sheet for more
information on the handling of refrigerant.

~ Accessory parts may only be fitted when
Disposing of your old machine
~ Before disposing of an old machine, first make the
door lock unusable. This way you will prevent
children from accidentally locking themselves in and
endangering their lives.
Keep these instructions in a safe and accessible
place.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing material
Tips on saving energy
The transport and protective packing has been
selected from materials which are environmentally
friendly for disposal.
This heat pump tumble dryer uses the latest
technology and will give energy savings of approx.
50% when compared to a conventional dryer which
uses electric heating. The following tips may help you
to make further reductions in energy consumption.
Rather than just throwing these materials away,
please ensure they are 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.
Disposing of your old machine
Electrical and electronic machines 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 machine. Please do
not therefore dispose of it with your household waste.
Make sure that your laundry is thoroughly spun
before drying. This saves time and energy.
Rinsing the laundry using hot water in the final rinse
helps to reduce the residual moisture level, and the
residual heat in the laundry will help keep processing
time down, thus saving energy.
Sort textiles according to:
- fabric and weave,
- drying level required,
- residual moisture levels.
For greater economy dry a full load. Underloading is
uneconomical. Overloading will impair the drying
result and the laundry finish. Keeping the fluff filters
and heat exchanger clean helps maintain the
efficiency of the dryer, keeps drying times to a
minimum and energy consumption levels down.
Ensure that the room is well ventilated.
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.
See the "Warning and Safety" section of this booklet
for further details.

Drying
Sort the laundry
Not all textiles are suitable for machine drying.
Please read the instructions given on the garment
care label.
The meaning of the care symbols:
q = Dry at normal temperature
r = Dry at low temperature
s = Do not tumble dry
Sort the laundry according to fibre type and weave to
ensure even drying and to prevent the risk of damage
to textiles.
,To prevent the risk of fire, the following
must not be dried in this tumble dryer (with the
exception of those fabrics which can be dried in
the Special Programmes specifically designed for
them):
- fabrics which contain a large proportion of
rubber, foam rubber or rubber-like materials.
- items which have been treated with inflammable
cleaning agents.
- items which have been splashed with hair
lacquer, hair spray, nail varnish remover or similar
substances.
- items which have been soiled with oils or
residues containing grease (kitchen oils,
cosmetics etc.).
- items soiled with wax or other chemicals (e.g.
mops and floor cloths).
- items with damaged padding or fillings (e.g.
pillows, jackets).
- items soiled with grease or oil which have not
been properly cleaned beforehand. Use
heavy-duty detergents where necessary to clean
heavily soiled garments, e.g. workwear. If
necessary consult the detergent manufacturer for
advice.
This can cause the drying process to go on for too
long, or to not finish at all. Open zips before drying.
Loopknit and woven textiles (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) have a tendency to shrink depending on
their quality. This is made worse by over-drying. Do
not use the "Cottons dry plus" for these textiles.
Starched laundry can be machine dried. Select the
most appropriate programme for ironing by hand or
machine.
Sort the laundry according to the level of dryness
required. It is not necessary to sort according to size.
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. Overloading will impair the drying
result and the laundry finish.
Rinsing the laundry using hot water in the final rinse
helps to reduce the residual moisture level, and the
residual heat in the laundry will help keep processing
time down, thus saving energy.
The following textiles should not be machine
dried:
Woollens and wool blends as these tend to matt and
shrink. Partially dry these using in the "Woollens"
programme.
Pure linen tends to roughen if tumble dried. Please
follow instructions given on the care label.
Important:
Textiles with large metal accessories such as
buckles, hooks and zip tags should be placed in a
laundry bag or a pillow case before drying. This is to
protect the drum from scratches and dents during
drying.
Garments with closed metal zips can cause the
sensor electrodes in the drum ribs to be bridged.

If condensate leaks from the unit, check that the
collection tray is positioned correctly in the drain and
that there is no soiling present in the drain. This is
accessible via the maintenance panel in the base
area at the rear.
Decreasing efficiency of the unit
The unit is designed for an ambient room temperature
of up to 45 °C. It is possible to operate the dryer at a
higher temperature without any problems on a
temporary basis. However, if the temperature is
constantly above 45 °C, an external supply of cool air
must be ensured. You can reduce the strain on the
unit by ensuring that the heat exchanger is always
kept free of fluff and other soiling. This will reduce
wear and tear and increase the life of your unit.
If, over time, you notice that the efficiency of the unit
is decreasing and that drying durations are
noticeably longer, check the following:
– the fluff filter in the dryer for soiling
– the heat exchanger in the heat pump for soiling
§

– the room temperature. If the temperature is
constantly above 45 °C, we recommend that you
ensure an external supply of fresh air and that the
exhaust air is extracted externally.
When contacting the Service Department, please
quote the Model, Serial number (SN) and Material
number (M.Nr) of your machine. These are shown on
the data plate.

Cleaning and care
Fluff filter
,Do not use the dryer without the fluff filter in
place. Fire risk.
A damaged fluff filter must be replaced before the
machine is used again.
Otherwise fluff and lint will cause a blockage in the
airways, the heating system and the exhaust vent,
and the correct functioning of the machine cannot
be assured.
The fluff filter collects any fluff and lint from the
laundry. It should be cleaned at least once a day and
when "Check fluff filter" appears in the display.
If there is a large amount of fluff and lint, the filter will
need to be cleaned several times a day.
The fluff filter must not be removed. When cleaning it,
do so with care and make sure it does not get
damaged.
^ The housing, control panel and any plastic
components should be cleaned using a suitable
mild cleaning agent, or with a soft damp cloth. Rub
dry with a soft cloth after cleaning.
^ If starched laundry has been dried, the drum
should be wiped out with a damp cloth afterwards.
Do not clean the machine with abrasive cleaning
agents.
Check the seal and the catch of the drum door, the
fluff filter panel and the maintenance panel and the
connection between the dryer and the heat pump
unit.
The air intake vents are located at the back of the
dryer and the exhaust vent in the machine lid. These
must not be blocked or hindered in any way. Do not
cover the machine lid with cloths or similar items.
The area surrounding the machine, in particular
around the air intake, must be kept free of dust and
fluff at all times. If taken into the dryer, they can
cause faults with the machine.
The following should be checked and cleaned once
a year by a Miele authorised service technician:
– the entire interior of the dryer
– the fins on the exhaust fan
^ Open the fluff compartment panel.
^ Wipe the fluff off the filter by hand. Never use
pointed or sharp edged objects to do this.
Tumble dryer
Before any cleaning or maintenance switch the dryer
off at the on-site mains switch.
,Do not use a high pressure cleaner or hose to
clean the tumble dryer.
29
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the heat exchanger
Regular and specialist maintenance of the entire
system will maintain the high efficiency of the unit and
help increase the lifespan of its components.
During use, fluff from textiles as well as detergent
residues and other elements present in the
condensed steam collect on the heat exchanger.
Soiling on the heat exchanger reduces heat transfer
to the air and in so doing the efficiency of the unit.
This is why it is important to have the heat exchanger
cleaned annually, or where there is a heavy build-up
of fluff or the dryer is operated very frequently, more
often by a Miele authorised service technician.
– Make sure that the unit is completely
disconnected from the mains electricity supply.
There must be no voltage present.
– Open the maintenance panel on the back of the
heat pump unit. Place the maintenance panel to
one side safely (danger or injury and tripping over
it).
– Before starting the rinsing process, take out the
collection tray and remove coarse soiling from it.
This will prevent the drain from becoming blocked.
Replace the collection tray before you start rinsing.
– Use a jet of water (max. 4 bar) to rinse the heat
exchanger thoroughly for several minutes. The
use of pressure washers or cleaning agents
containing chlorine, sand, sodium carbonate or
acid is not permitted. You can use a vacuum
cleaner or brush to clean the heat exchanger.
Ensure that the slats are not bent or damaged.
The use of water is permitted only within the
specific area of the heat exchanger described.
– Make sure that you provide adequate drainage for
the water used for cleaning to avoid flooding the
dryer or the room in which it is located.
– Remove any soiling which has not been rinsed out.
30
– Clean the collection tray and check the drain for
any blockages.
– Make sure heat exchanger is enclosed by the
maintenance panel before operating the unit again.
– Make sure that no electrical parts have come into
contact with water before supplying electricity to
the unit again.
– Avoid touching the slats to protect them from
damage and wear gloves to prevent cuts to your
hands.
,Water may be used to clean the heat
exchanger (in the area behind the maintenance
panel) only. Using water to clean the dryer and
other parts is not permitted. Danger to life from
electric shock.
,To ensure the correct performance of the
tumble dryer and to prevent the risk of faults and
fire, it is important to check the machine and carry
out maintenance on a regular basis.
