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 it
with your household waste.
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.

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.

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.
~ 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).
~ This tumble dryer may only be used
in mobile installations such as ships if a
risk assessment of the installation has
been carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
~ In countries where there are 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 guarantee.
~ Do not make any alterations to the
tumble dryer, unless authorised to do
so by Miele.

Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ 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 deposits (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 (e.g. mops and floorheads)
which have been treated with
inflammable cleaning agents or
contain residues of acetone, alcohol,
benzine, petrol, stain remover,
turpentine, wax, wax remover or
other chemicals.
– items which have been splashed with
hair lacquer, hair spray, nail varnish
remover or similar substances.
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.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
following must not be dried in this
tumble dryer:
– items which have been cleaned
using chemicals (e.g. professional
dry-cleaning agents).
– 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.
– damaged items which contain
padding or fillings (e.g. pillows,
jackets). When damaged, the filling
can get out with the risk of it igniting
in the dryer.
~ 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 has been completed.
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 and the
laundry was then removed immediately
it could give off a great amount of heat.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar
products must be used according to
the instructions on the manufacturer's
packaging.

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.

remaining
When a programme is selected, the
estimated duration 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.
After the Start/Stop button has been
pressed, the delay start time will start
counting down.
Once the delay start time has elapsed,
the programme will begin and the
estimated programme duration will
appear in the display.
Programmable functions
The programmable functions can be
used to tailor drying programmes to suit
your individual requirements. In
programming mode, the display will
show the function selected.
The electronics continually assess
conditions in the 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.

How the dryer works
Drying
Hygiene filter
The drying air in the drum circulates in
a closed system passing lengthwise
through the condenser.
The hygiene filter filters the air from the
room which the dryer takes in to cool
the condenser unit. Once filtered this
air gets warm. It is then expelled back
into the room.
The condenser is cooled by a second
flow of cool air brought in from outside
the dryer. This air passes across the
condenser.
The moisture in the drying air
condenses in the cooled condenser
unit. The condensate is then either
collected in the condensed water
container or pumped away.
The drying air and the external air used
for cooling the condenser unit are kept
separate from one another.
Fluff in the drying air which has built up
on textiles during the washing process
and through wear, is collected by the
fluff filters in the door and in the door
opening.
12
The hygiene filter must be replaced
with a new one when the Change filter
indicator light comes on.
The dryer must not be used without
the hygiene filter in place.
Without the hygiene filter in place, the
dryer will take in more room air which
will in turn cool the condenser unit more
and cause a lower drying temperature.
A reduction in the drying temperature
will mean that micro-organisms are not
deactivated. The noise level during
drying will also increase.
Please note that the programme
durations will be longer if the hygiene
filter is not replaced when the indicator
light comes on.
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 low temperature
s . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Do not tumble dry
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.
– For delicates and fabrics with the
following care label r select Low
temperature.
– Use the Automatic programme for
drying mixed loads of cottons and
minimum iron fabrics.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– 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
handcare programme.
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
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. Be particularly careful
when using the Hygiene
programmes. When purchasing
these garments it is advisable to take
their shrinkage properties into
account.
– For garments made from very fine
weave fibres, such as shirts or
blouses, use the Shirts programme to
avoid creasing. If in doubt, reduce
the load or use the Smoothing
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.

A Sort the laundry
To ensure an even drying result
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.
,Make sure that objects e.g.
detergent dispensing balls have
been removed from the laundry.
They could melt, and cause damage
to the dryer or the laundry.
Do not overload the drum. See the
"Programme chart" for
recommended loads for each
programme.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry and
give a disappointing drying result.
^ Before closing the door make sure
the fluff filter is correctly positioned.
– Check seams and stitching to ensure
that padding and linings are intact.
– Fasten duvet covers and pillow
cases to prevent small items from
being trapped inside them.

towards the right-hand side.
^ Hold the container with both hands
and carry it in a horizontal position.
24
Condensed water can be put to
household use (e.g. in a steam iron or
humidifier). To ensure that any residual
particles of fluff in the condensed water
are removed before use, pass it
through a fine sieve or paper filter first.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the fluff filters
Fluff from items being dried is collected
by the fluff filters in the door and the
door opening. Clean the filters after
each drying programme. The filters
should also be inspected whenever the
"Clean out airways" indicator light
comes on.
Useful tip: You can also use a
vacuum cleaner* to remove the fluff.
This could be helpful for allergy
sufferers where it is important to
avoid the skin coming into contact
with the fluff.
* use the tool supplied with the dryer.
Cleaning them whilst dry
^ Vacuum the surface of the fluff filter.
If a vacuum cleaner is not available, you
can remove the fluff with your fingers.
^ Open the door and pull the fluff filter
(1) out of the door as illustrated.
^ Also clean the door seal (2) with a
damp cloth.
^ Vacuum up any fluff from the hollow
part of the door opening. You could
also use a cleaning brush which is
available as an optional extra from
your Miele dealer or the Miele Spare
Parts Department.
^ Once clean, push the filter back into
the door holder until it clicks into
position. Ensure it is facing the
correct way.
^ Close the door.
25
Cleaning and care
Cleaning them with water
If there is a great deal of compacted
fluff on any of the filters, they can be
removed and cleaned under hot
running water.
^ Open the door and pull the fluff filter
out of the door as described
previously.
The two filters in the door opening can
also be removed if you need to clean
them with water.
^ Turn dial a and pull the filter by the
dial out of the door opening as shown
b. Do the same on the other side.
^ Rinse all the filters under hot, running
water.
^ Then shake the filters until no more
water droplets are visible.
^ Dry the filters thoroughly with care.
^ Clean the area underneath these
filters, e.g. with a vacuum cleaner.
26
,Do not replace them if they are
damp or wet. Damp or wet filters
could cause operational faults.
^ Push the large filter back into the
door holder until it clicks into position.
Ensure it is facing the correct way.
^ Replace the filters in the door
opening by first inserting them at the
bottom and then pressing them into
place at the top.
^ Lock both dials.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the tumble dryer
Disconnect the tumble dryer from
the mains electricity supply.
Miele branded cleaning and
conditioning products are available to
order via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com.
^ Clean the housing and control panel
with a slightly damp cloth and a mild
detergent or soapy water.
^ The drum and other stainless steel
parts can be cleaned with a suitable
stainless steel cleaner following the
manufacturer's instructions.
Do not use solvents, abrasive
cleaners, glass cleaners or
all-purpose cleaners. These could
damage plastic sufaces and other
parts. The tumble dryer must never
be hosed down.
^ Dry all parts with a soft cloth.
27
Cleaning and care
Hygiene filter
Replacing the hygiene filter
The replaceable hygiene filter is
located in a removable holder on the
back of the panel.
The hygiene filter in the dryer filters out
dirt particles from the room air which is
drawn in to cool the condenser unit.
This means that when the air which has
been used to cool the condenser unit is
expelled back into the room, it does not
add any dirt particles to the air in the
room.
,To ensure that the dryer
continues to function correctly the
hygiene filter must be replaced with
a new one when necessary.
^ Use the lever to open the panel.
^ Press the lugs gently together to
release the holder from the panel.
^ Dispose of the used hygiene filter
with your normal household waste.
^ Refit the holder, together with the
new filter, onto the back of the panel.
^ Replace the panel and press the
upper edge until it clicks into
position.
^ Now remove the panel by pulling it
diagonally upwards.
28
Cleaning and care
Resetting the filter counter after
fitting a new filter
The Change filter indicator comes on to
tell you that it is time, under normal
conditions, to replace the hygiene filter
with a new one.
However, where excessive dust has
collected it may be necessary to
replace the hygiene filter more
frequently than waiting until the
indicator lights up.
You must reset the filter counter back
to 0 when you replace the filter. This
allows the filter counter to start
counting the time to the next
replacement.
Carry out the following procedure each
time you replace the hygiene filter
(even if the indicator light has not come
on):
^ Switch the dryer on.
^ Press the Low temperature and
Buzzer buttons at the same time and
hold them in for 4 seconds.
The counter has been reset once the
Change filter indicator light has gone
out.
29
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the condenser unit
Detergent residue, hair and fine fluff
from the dryer can get through the fluff
filters and block the condenser unit.
Dust from the room in which the dryer is
installed can also get into the
condenser unit and cause a blockage.
Check the condenser unit at least
once a year. Always check it if the
Clean out airways indicator light
comes on. Clean it if necessary.
Removing the condenser unit
^ Turn the lever on the inner cover
downwards to the vertical position.
^ Open the service panel. Hold the
panel securely when doing this.
^ Tilt the cover forwards.
^ Now remove the panel by pulling it
diagonally upwards and place it to
one side.
^ Turn the lever on the condenser unit
upwards to the vertical position so
that the hook on the lever is no longer
in the groove at the bottom of the
condenser unit housing.

housing by the handle.
Checking the condenser unit
^ Use a shower head or similar to rinse
the unit out as shown.
^ Hold the condenser unit up to the
light as shown.
^ Check to see if there is any fluff
inside it.
The arrows in the illustration above
indicate where to look.
31
Cleaning and care
Replacing the condenser unit
^ With the handle facing upwards,
push the condenser unit back into
position in its housing.
^ Turn the lever down to the horizontal
position, making sure that the hook
on the lever clicks into the groove.
When replacing the inner cover after
cleaning, ensure that the rubber seal
fits correctly into the groove.
^ Then flush the unit through from the
front.
^ Check the condenser unit again for
any visible fluff and if necessary flush
it through again until it has all gone.
^ Also make sure the rubber seals are
clean.
The rubber seals must not be
removed and must be free of kinks.
Checking and cleaning the
condenser unit housing
^ Remove any soiling still visible inside
the housing unit by hand using a
damp cloth. Do not try and access
areas you cannot reach by hand!
32
^ Replace the inner cover making sure
the hooks locate correctly. Hold it at
an angle and push it gently
downwards.
^ Then turn the lever upwards into the
horizontal position to lock the cover.

Installation and connection
Installation site
,Make sure the dryer door can be
opened without hindrance after
installation.
Transporting the dryer to its
installation site
When moving the dryer 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. Do not hold the dryer by the
door.
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. Otherwise drying times
will be increased unnecessarily.
,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.
,A building under kit* with a
coverplate to replace the appliance
lid is required. It must be fitted by a
suitably qualified person to ensure
electrical safety.
N.B. If you wish to push your dryer
under a worktop and there is space to
do this without removing the lid, a
building under kit is not necessary.
Otherwise the building under kit is
essential.
You can ensure that the warm air can
dissipate by:
The building-under kit is supplied with
its own installation instructions.
– Adjusting the screw feet so that there
is a gap of at least 20 mm between
the floor and the bottom of the dryer.
– N.B. When built under drying times
may be longer.
– Creating a gap for the dryer in the
kitchen furniture plinth facing.
– Creating ventilation gaps in the
kitchen unit.
– The electrical socket must be
located in an accessible position
near the machine.
With niche heights of:
– 830-840 mm, longer screw feet* are
required.
– 870/885 - 915/930 mm, one or two
raising kits* are required.
* Accessory available to order
43
Installation and connection
Replacing the lid
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 secure for transport.
Levelling the dryer
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
,At the front of the dryer: Room
The dryer must be perfectly level to
ensure safe and proper operation.
44
air to cool the condenser unit is
taken in through the opening in the
hygiene filter panel. This opening
must not be blocked or covered
over as this would cause a fault.
Installation and connection
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 tumble dryer can also be
combined with a Miele washing
machine in a washer-dryer stack. The
appropriate "WTV" stacking kit
(available to order) is required.
,Stacking kits must only be
installed by a suitably qualified fitter.
Before moving the dryer again
(e.g. when moving house)
After each use a small quantity of
condensed water will collect in the area
around the pump. This water can run
out if the 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
the dryer. Any remaining condensed
water will then be fed into the
condensed water container or out
through the drain hose.
45
Installation and connection
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 dryer 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:
1.5 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).
46
Installation and connection
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 in 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 "Setting up the drain
hose").
^ Fit adapter 1 to the sink drain outlet
using nut 2.

Adjusting the dryer's
electronics for very soft water
,In some areas of the UK, water is
extremely soft which can affect the
sensitivity of the control electronics.
If the dryer is installed in an area of
very soft water, you should contact
your local water supplier for
information and advice regarding
water hardness and water
conductivity. If the water
conductivity is less than 150 µS, the
following programmable function will
need to be activated.
Important. This programmable
function should not be activated if,
despite the water being extremely
soft (as would be the case if a water
softener were used), its conductivity
is greater than 150 µS.
Follow the steps (A,B,C ...) to
programme and store in memory.
– The Low temperature indicator light
will flash on and off slowly once and
then on and off quickly twice.
A number to show which option is
selected will appear in the display
alternating with the letter P.
