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
appliances
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 it
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 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 filter is clean
before using the dryer.
– Check all parts of the ventilation
system on a regular basis and
remove any build up of fluff etc.
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.

– The vent ducting should be as short,
straight and smooth as possible to
minimise any resistance to the air
throughflow.
This helps to reduce running times
and energy consumption levels.

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.
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).
5
Warning and Safety instructions
The machine is built in accordance
with current safety requirements.
Unauthorised repairs could result in
unforeseen dangers for the user, for
which the manufacturer cannot accept
liability. Repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele approved
technician.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
machine 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
machine 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 countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
machine 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 machine guarantee.
6
Warning and Safety instructions
In the event of a fault or for
cleaning purposes, the machine 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.
Use
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.
This dryer must not be:
– connected to a chimney or vent flue
which is in use.
– used without exhaust ducting.
– used without the fluff filter in place or
if the fluff filter is damaged in any
way.
Check all parts of the extraction
system on a regular basis (e.g. wall
vent, external grille, bends in the
ducting etc.) and make sure they are all
free of any hindrance. A build-up of fluff
will prevent a free-flow of air through the
system. If the dryer is to be connected
to an existing ducting system this must
be checked for suitability beforehand.
Adequate ventilation is essential to
avoid the danger of asphyxia and
toxic fumes where another appliance
which also uses the room air (e.g. gas,
oil or coal fired heater, continuous flow
or other water heater) is installed in the
same or an adjacent room.
To ensure safe operation, and to
prevent gases given off by these
appliances being drawn back into the
room, an underpressure of 0.04 mbar is
the maximum permissible.
– Ventilation can be maintained by air
inlets which cannot be blocked, in
windows, doors and outside wall
vents, or by fitting a window contact
switch which ensures that the tumble
dryer can only be operated when the
window is opened wide enough.
If in doubt, the advice of a competent
builder, or for gas, a "Corgi" registered
installer (in the UK) must be sought.
The exhaust air must not be vented
into a chimney or vent flue which is
in use, nor should it be connnected to
ducting which ventilates rooms with
fireplaces. It would be dangerous if
smoke or exhaust fumes were drawn
back into the room.
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.
The ambient room temperature should
be between +2°C and +35°C.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
To prevent the risk of fire the
following textiles must not be
dried in this machine:
– fabrics which contain a large
proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber like materials.
– items which contain padding or
fillings (e.g. pillows, jackets).
– 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 which have not been
thoroughly cleaned and which are
still soiled with grease or oil, e.g.
workwear. Such clothing may require
a heavy duty detergent to get them
clean. If necessary consult the
detergent manufacturer for advice.
Do not let anyone sit or lean on the
door, as this can cause the
machine to tip up.
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.
8
Safety with children
This machine is not a toy. To avoid
the risk of injury keep children
away from the machine at all times and
supervise them whilst you are using it.
Do not allow children to play on or near
it or to play with its controls. Supervise
its use by the elderly or infirm.
Using accessories
Accessory parts may only be fitted
when expressly approved by Miele.
If non-Miele parts are used with this
machine, guarantee, performance and
product liability claims may be
invalidated.
Disposal of your old machine
Before discarding an old machine,
switch it off at the wall socket and
unplug it. Render the plug useless and
cut off the cable directly behind the
machine. This should be done by a
competent person.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

– the delay start time;
– the programmable functions.
Estimated time remaining
When a programme is selected the
estimated drying time will appear in the
display. Please be aware that it is only
an estimate!
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 machine 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, the Woollens hand
care and Smoothing programmes can
finish earlier than expected if a certain
temperature is reached. This can
happen with particularly fine fabrics or
if items were partly dry beforehand.
10
Drum lighting
If the dryer is switched on, the drum
lighting will come on when the door is
opened. It will go out after a short while
if the door is left open to save energy.
Notes on laundry care
Care symbols
Before drying check the drying
symbol on the care label. If there are
no symbols, dry at your own risk!
q . . . . . . . . . Dry at normal temperature
r . . . . . . . . . . Dry at a low temperature
s . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Do not tumble dry
– Cottons, linens and minimum iron
items should be dried using the
appropriate programme for the
degree of dryness required.
– For delicates and fabrics with the
following care label r select the Low
temperature extra option.
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 them thoroughly
after washing using the appropriate
spin speed.
– 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.
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 care label, as
the surface of the fabric may
otherwise become rough. They can
be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not over-dry these
textiles. When purchasing these
garments it is advisable to take their
shrinkage properties into account.
– Minimum iron fabrics and 100%
cotton shirts or blouses tend to
crease more the greater the load.
This is especially true of very fine
weaves, such as shirts or blouses.
Reduce the load or use the Shirts
programme.
– 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 machine.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.

33
Installation - venting
General
Important
Before operating the tumble dryer, a
suitable ducting system must be
installed to carry the moist air from
the dryer to the outside. This can be:
. . . flexible ducting hose, or plastic
piping connected to the dryer, or
. . . the dryer may be connected
directly to the wall vent.
– Before installing the ducting system,
ensure that the machine is not
connected to the power supply.
– The ducting outlet (e.g. wall pipe)
should be installed in such a way
that the moist expelled air . . .
. . . cannot be drawn back into the
room in which the dryer is installed;
. . . cannot cause any damage to the
building or other nuisance.
– The dryer uses the room air. It is
therefore essential to ensure
adequate ventilation to avoid the
danger of asphyxia caused by gases
given off by other appliances being
drawn back into the room.
Insufficient ventilation will also cause
drying times to be considerably
longer.
Ventilation can be maintained by:
- an open window;
- an air inlet which cannot be
blocked in windows, doors and
outside wall vents;
- a window switch which prevents
the dryer being used when the
window is closed.
34
Avoid:
– very long ducting systems
– too many bends or corners, tight
corners
Otherwise the drying result will be less
effective and it will take longer and use
more energy.
Suitable materials
– for the ventilation ducting:
flexible ducting* or plastic piping
with a diameter of at least 100 mm.
– for venting to the outside:
a wall pipe kit* or a window vent kit*.
* Available as an optional accessory
from your Miele dealer or the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
Procedure
^ First measure the duct length
required. Calculate the effective duct
length and establish the internal duct
diameter required (use the tables on
the next page).
^ Then decide which type of ducting
you want to use (see "Venting
systems" in this section).
Installation - venting
Calculating the effective duct
length:
Friction against the inner walls of the
ducting will slow down the expelled air
as it passes through. An elbow, bend,
non-return flap or wall vent creates
more friction than a straight duct. The
friction created by each of these is
expressed as an additional duct
length factor. The additional length
factors are calculated by comparing
the friction created by, for example, an
elbow to that created by 1 metre of
straight plastic piping (Table I).
The additional duct length factor for
each item needs to be added together
to ascertain the effective duct length
required.
A larger internal duct diameter also
helps reduce friction. If the effective
duct length is more than 20 m the
duct diameter should be increased
(Table II).
1. To calculate the effective duct
length required:
^ First measure the distance which will
require straight ducting. Multiply this
amount by the corresponding
additional duct length factor in Table I.
^ Establish the number of angles,
bends etc. necessary and add their
additional duct length factors
together with the help of Table I.
^ Add all the additional duct length
factors together to get the effective
duct length.
2. Internal duct diameter

duct diameter required.

the vented air has to ducted for some
distance. The smooth walls of the
pipe create less friction for the
vented air than the walls of a flexible
vent hose, for example. Time and
energy consumption are better with
plastic piping.
The following items are required:
– An adapter* (C 100 mm).
– a wall vent kit* or window vent kit*.
– Suitable piping (C 100 mm) is
available from your dealer or builders
merchants. Where the pipe diameter
is more than 100 mm, an adapter is
necessary (e.g. from C 100 to 125
mm) to connect the pipe to the dryer.
1. Wall vent kit
(Separate fitting instructions are
supplied with the Miele wall vent kit).
2. Adapter
3. Plastic piping, diameter DN 100
* Available as an optional accessory
from your Miele dealer or the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
^ The ducting (2) is connected to
adapter (1) which is fitted into the
vent opening on the dryer.

c Connecting directly to a wall
vent
Side view:
The best method of venting the dryer
is to connect it directly to the outside
wall of a room. Time and energy
consumption are better with plastic
piping. This involves boring through
an outside wall.
A wall pipe* and a flexible foam gasket*
must be used
(* Miele optional accessories).
A Before drilling into the wall, . .
. . . please read the installation
instructions supplied with the Miele
wall vent kit.
