Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the machine 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 of the
machine.
Correct use
The tumble dryer is only intended
for drying fabrics which have been
washed in a water solution, 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 applications may be
dangerous. The manufacturer is not
liable for damage resulting from
improper use or operation.
4
Before setting up the machine,
check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install or use a damaged
machine.
Before connecting the machine,
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
machine can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system which
complies with local and national
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. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g.
electric shock).
Do not connect the appliance 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).

Warning and Safety instructions
In the event of a fault or for
cleaning purposes, the machine is
only completely isolated from the
electiricty 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and the plug is withdrawn, or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– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
Operation
This equipment may only be used
in mobile installations such as
ships, caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
The dryer must not be used without
the fluff filters in place or if the fluff
filters are damaged in any way.

dried after cleaning. If they are still
damp or wet when replaced there is a
risk of faults occurring when the
machine is used.
The dryer must not be used without
the condenser unit in place.
Do not install the machine in a
room where there is a risk of frost
occurring. At temperatures around
freezing point the machine 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.
6
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
machine free of dust and fluff. Dust
drawn into the machine can, over time,
cause blockages in the condenser unit.
Warning and Safety instructions

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.
competent person. The plug must be
rendered useless and the cable cut off
directly behind it to prevent misuse.
See the "Warning and Safety" section of
this booklet for further details.
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.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a

Notes on laundry care
Wash care labels
Before drying check the drying
symbol on the wash care label.
Significance of symbols:
q Dry at normal temperature
r Dry at low temperature
s Do not tumble dry
If no symbol is featured, dry at your
own risk applying the following
principles:
Cotton and minimum iron items should
be dried using the appropriate
programme for the degree of drying
required. See programme chart.
For delicates and fabrics with the
following wash care label r dry using
the Low temperature option.
Items filled with down.
The fabric lining on these garments
may shrink depending on the quality.
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 wash care label,
as the surface of the fabric may
otherwise "roughen". These items can
be partially dried using the Smoothing
programme.
Woven and loopknit materials (e.g.
T-shirts, knitted garments) have a
tendency to shrink, depending on their
quality and this is made worse by overdrying. When purchasing these
garments it is advisable to take their
shrinkage properties into account.
Never overload the drum. Do not
exceed the maximum recommended
loads given in the "Programme
chart". Overloading can cause
unnecessary wear and tear to the
laundry, give a disappointing drying
result and cause more creasing.
Minimum iron fabrics and 100% cotton
shirts or blouses tend to crease more,
the larger the load being dried,
particulary when the weave of the
fabric is very fine. Reduce the load or
use the MINIMUM IRON - Hand iron
programme with a max. load of 1 kg. If
this is unsatisfactory use the Special
care "Smoothing" setting, then hang the
garments on a hanger to dry.
Do not put soaking wet items into
the tumble dryer. Spin them
thoroughly after washing using the
appropriate spin speed.
Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. In order to achieve the
usual finish, double the amount of
starch should be used.
Tips on drying
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 hand
care programme.
10
New dark coloured garments should be
dried separately from light coloured
garments to avoid the danger of colours running.

How to dry correctly
A Prepare the laundry
^ As far as possible, sort laundry for:
- the type of fibre or weave,
- the degree of dryness required,
- similar size of items,
- the moisture content after
spinning.
This will help towards achieving an
even drying result.
Fasten duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being rolled up inside
them.
Do not overload the drum.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry and
give a disappointing drying result.
See the "Programme chart" for
maximum recommended loads.
^ Before closing the door check that
the fluff filter is correctly positioned in
the door.
Do up zips, hooks and eyes etc.
Tie fabric belts, apron strings.
Sew in or remove underwiring from
bras.
Make sure there is no detergent
dispenser ball etc. in with the
laundry, as this could melt and
damage the machine and the
laundry.
B Load the drum and switch
on the dryer
^ Press the door button and open the
door.
^ Load the laundry loosely into the
drum.
When closing the door make sure
items of laundry cannot be trapped
by the door, as this will cause
damage to the laundry.
^ Shut the door either with a gentle
swing or lean against it and push it
shut.
^ Switch the dryer on by pressing the
"l-On/0-Off" button.

C Select a programme
D Start the programme
^ Press the Start button.
The drying cycle begins.
The drying stage reached is shown by
the sequence indicator lamps on the
right hand side of the control panel.
At the end of the drying phase a
cooling down phase commences to
cool the laundry down. The Cool air
indicator lights up.
The required degree of dryness has
now been reached.
^ Turn the programme selector to the
required programme.
See "Consumption data" chart for
programme durations.
Low temperature
^ For drying particularly delicate
fabrics (care symbol r) e.g. acrylics
turn the programme selector to the
Low temperature position.
Because the temperature is reduced for
the Low temperature settings,
programme durations will be increased
and laundry will take longer to dry.
15
How to dry correctly
Selecting a different programme
As long as the cooling down phase or
the anti-crease phase has not been
reached it is possible to change a
programme after it has started by
turning the programme selector to a
different programme position.
Interrupting a programme
^ Switch the machine off with the
I-On/0-Off button.
To continue drying:

I-On/0-Off button.
With COTTONS and MINIMUM IRON
programmes the programme will
continue unless the cooling down or
anti-crease phase has been reached.
With other programmes:
^ Press the Start button.
Adding or removing items
,Do not touch the back of the
drum when adding or removing
items. The drum could be very hot danger of burning.
^ Open the door. Take out or add items
as required.
^ To continue drying close the door
and press Start.
To cancel a programme
^ Turn the programme selector to
Finish or open the door .
16
The programme has been successfully
cancelled when only the Anti-crease/
Finish indicator lamp is on.
E At the end of a programme
At the end of a programme the Anticrease/Finish lamp will come on in the
sequence display and the buzzer will
sound.
The drum will continue to rotate at
intervals to prevent laundry creasing, if
you do not wish to remove it immediately. This anti-crease phase lasts for a
maximum of 60 minutes, except with
the Woollens hand care programme.
^ Press the Door button and open the
door.
^ Remove the laundry.
Make sure that the drum is empty. If
items are left in the dryer, they could
be damaged by overdrying when
the dryer is next used.
^ The condensed water container
should be emptied after every drying
cycle or as soon as the Empty out
container indicator lamp comes on.
^ Clean the fluff filters.

,Make sure the dryer door can be
opened without hindrance after
installation.
Transporting the machine to its
installation site
When moving the machine 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.
Building under a continous worktop /
in a row of kitchen units
,A building under kit* is required
which must be fitted by a suitably
qualified person.
The machine lid is replaced by a
coverplate. It is essential that the
coverplate is fitted to ensure
electrical safety.
The building under kit is supplied with
its own installation instructions.
N.B. When built under running times
may be longer.
– The electrical socket must be
located in an accessible position
near the machine.
With niche heights of:
The dryer should not be installed
next to a refrigerator or freezer. The
warm air expelled from the rear of
the dryer would increase the
temperature around the
refrigerator's/freezer's heat
exchanger causing the compressor
to run continuously.
If it is not possible to install the dryer
anywhere else, then the refrigerator/
freezer must be sealed off from the
dryer.
– 840 mm, longer screw feet* are
required.
– 870/885 mm - 915/930 mm, one or
two height adjustment frames* are
required.
* Available as an optional accessory
from your Miele dealer or the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
If you wish to push your machine 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.
Replacing the lid
If the lid has been removed in order to
fit a cover plate, ensure that, if the lid is
replaced, it fits securely into the rear
holders. Otherwise, it is not properly
secure for transport.
31
Installation
Levelling the machine
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 rear 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 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. To do
this the appropriate stacking kit* (WTV)
to match your washing machine is
required.
* Available as an optional accessory
from your Miele dealer or the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
,Stacking kits must be fitted by a
suitably qualified fitter.
Before moving the machine again
(e.g. when moving house)
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
,The ventilation gaps in the plinth
must not be covered over as this
would prevent a sufficient intake of
air.
32
After each use a small quantity of
condensed water will collect in the area
around the pump. This water can run
out if the machine 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 machine. Any remaining
condensed water will then be fed into
the condensed water container or out
through the drain hose.
Installation
External condensed water
outlet
From the back of the dryer at the
bottom:
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.
The drain hose (approx. 2 m long) is
stored in the dryer. It must be pulled
out of the dryer to its full extent if
condensed water is to be drained
externally. Maximum delivery head:
1 m.
If it is not long enough, an extension
hose is available as an optional
accessory through your dealer or from
the Miele Spare Parts Dept.
Setting up the drain hose
^ Unclip the drain hose from clip (3).
^ Then pull the drain hose completely
out of the dryer towards the left (4)
(See illustration). Important:
,Do not let the drain hose
become kinked, as this could
damage it.
From the back of the dryer at the top:
,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.
Use the bow-shaped guide to prevent
the drain hose from becoming kinked
(see "Front view" illustration).
^ Unclip the drain hose from clip (1).
^ Then pull it off holder (2).
33
Installation
Connection to a sink drain outlet
The drain hose can be connected
directly to a sink drain outlet.
If this nut has a flat disc sealing it you
should take the disc out first.
Important: if this nut has a washer or
seal in it this must not be removed!
^ Attach the end of the hose to adapter
1.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose
clip 3 up close to the nut.
If you no longer wish to use an
external condensed water outlet
,Do not push the drain hose
back into the dryer. Doing this could
cause it to become kinked and
damaged in the dryer.
^ Remove the following from the back
of the dryer at the bottom:
Adapter 1 and hose clip 3 behind it.
^ Loop the drain hose up.
^ Use a suitable cable tie to secure the
looped hose to the back of the dryer,
or simply lay the looped hose behind
the dryer.
^ Attach the open end of the drain
hose back onto the holder at the
back of the dryer at the top (see
holder 2 in "Pulling out the drain
hose").
^ Fit adapter 1 to the sink drain outlet
using nut 2.

appliance until after installation work
has been carried out.
The appliance is supplied with a mains
cable with moulded plug ready for
connection to a 230-240V mains
supply. The voltage and connected
load are given on the data plate.
Please ensure these match the
household mains supply. The fuse
rating is quoted on the plug.
Connection should be made via a
suitable switched socket which is easily
accessible after installation.
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a residual current device (RCD), with a
trip current of 30 mA (in accordance
with DIN VDE 0664, VDE 0100 Section
739).
Replacement fuses should be ASTA
approved to BS 1362 and have the
correct rating. Replacement fuses and
fuse covers may be purchased from
your local electrical supplier.
