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
or machine
Electrical and electronic appliances /
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 appliance or machine. Therefore,
please do not dispose of your old
machine or appliance with your
household waste.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance or the machine to prevent
misuse.
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.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.

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

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 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.
~ 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.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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).
~ In 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 warranty.
~ Do not make any alterations to the tumble dryer, unless
authorised to do so by Miele.
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 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.
~ The dryer must not be used without the condenser unit in place.
~ The fluff filters 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, hoses and / or condensed water container.
The ambient room temperature should be between +2°C and
+35°C.
~ 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.
~ 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 let anyone sit or lean on the door, as this can cause the
tumble dryer to tip up.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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
appliance.
If non-Miele parts are used, warranty, performance and product
liability claims may be invalidated.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

functions" 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.
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.
16
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
handcare, Cool air, Warm air, Gentle
smoothing.
Programme duration /
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.

Tips on drying
– See the "Programme chart" for
maximum recommended loads for
each programme.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry, give a
disappointing drying result and
cause more creasing.
– Do not tumble dry loopknit garments!
Spin garments for at least 30
seconds after washing.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Use the Automatic plus programme
for drying mixed loads of cottons,
colours and minimum iron fabrics.
– Woollen fabrics and wool blends
tend to shrink and become matted if
dried in a tumble dryer. These
fabrics should only be dried using
the Woollens handcare programme.
– Down-filled fabrics have linings
which have a tendendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
These fabrics should only be dried in
the Smoothing programme.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label.
Otherwise the surface of the fabric
may become rough.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts,
underwear) have a tendency to
shrink after the first wash. Therefore:
To avoid further shrinking, do not
overdry these fabrics. When buying
loopknit garments, it is advisable to
take their shrinkage properties into
account.
– Creasing in minimum iron fabrics
increases with the size of the load.
This applies in particular to very
sensitive fabrics (e.g. shirts,
blouses).
If in doubt, reduce the size of the
load.
– 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 separately from light
coloured garments. Do not dry these
together with light garments as they
may lose their colour (also onto
plastic components in the tumble
dryer). Dark coloured fibres can also
settle on light coloured garments and
vice versa.

How to dry correctly
Brief instructions
The headings numbered (A, B, C ...)
show the operating sequence and can
be used as a brief guide to using your
machine.
A Sort the laundry
Separate the washed laundry and sort it
according to . . .
. . . the drying level required,
. . . the type of fibre or weave,
. . . size,
. . . the moisture content after spinning.
In this way an even drying result will be
achieved.
,Make sure that objects, e.g.
detergent dispensing balls, have
been removed from the laundry.

,A building-under kit* (Miele
accessory, available to order) with a
coverplate to replace the
appliance's lid is required. It must
be fitted by a suitable 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.
a Protruding lid for holding when
moving the machine (see arrows)
– Fitting instructions are supplied with
the conversion kit.
b Air inlet vent for cooling the
condenser unit
– N.B. When built-under, drying times
may be longer.
c Mains connection cable
– The electrical socket must be
located in an accessible position
near the machine.
d Hose for external drainage of
condensed water
e Accessories for connection to a sink
drain outlet
With niche heights of:
Installation site
– 870-885 / 915-930 mm, one or two
raising kits* are required.
,Make sure the dryer door can be
opened without hindrance after
installation.
– 830-840 mm, longer screw feet* are
required.
* accessory available to order
Replacing the lid
Transporting the machine to its
installation site
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.
42
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 secured for transport.
Installation
Levelling the machine
,The gap between the base of the
dryer and the floor must not be
minimised by a plinth or thick-piled
carpet as this will prevent a
sufficient intake of cold air.
Room ventilation
The machine must be perfectly level to
ensure safe and proper operation.
The air which is taken in when the dryer is
in operation is blown out of the vents on
the front of the machine and warms up
the air in the room. It is very important,
particulary if the room is small, to ensure
adequate ventilation. Opening a window,
for example, will allow more air to enter
the room. Otherwise running times and
energy consumption could be increased.
Washer-dryer stack
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 suitable qualified fitter.
^ 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 machine must not be
covered as this would prevent
sufficient ventilation for cooling the
condenser unit.
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 Warm 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.
43
Installation
External condensed water
outlet
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.
44
^ 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.
45
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.

5 Non-return valve
6 Tumble dryer drain hose
46
,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.
Installation
