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 should 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.
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 it with
your household waste.
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 recycling centre or
contact your dealer for advice. Ensure
that it presents no danger to children
while being stored for disposal.

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 frequency) 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 correctly earthed. It is most important that this basic safety
requirement is observed 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).
~ If the electrical connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced
by a Miele approved service technician to protect the user from
danger.
~ 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. Ensure
current is not supplied to the tumble dryer until after maintenance or

9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following textiles must not be dried
in this appliance:
– 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 self-ignite when heated, even after they have been
removed from the dryer at the end of the programme.
– items (e.g. mops and floor cloths) which have been treated with
inflammable cleaning agents or which contain residues of
acetone, alcohol, benzine, petrol, kerosene, stain remover,
turpentine, wax and 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
additional detergent and select a high temperature. If in doubt,
wash the items several times.
~ Remove all items such as lighters and matches from pockets.
~ Warning: Do not switch the tumble dryer off before the drying
programme has finished. If this is done, the laundry must be hung
up or spread out to cool it down.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Danger.
This tumble dryer must not be connected to a controllable socket
(e.g. a timer switch or a peak load shut-off device).
If the dryer programme were to be interrupted before the end of the
cooling down phase, the laundry could self-combust.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following must not be tumble dried:
– 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
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.
As soon as the programme has finished, remove all laundry from the
drum.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar products must be used according
to the instructions on the manufacturer's packaging.
~ Do not let anyone sit or lean on the door, as this can cause the
tumble dryer to tip up.
~ Always close the door after use. This way you will avoid the
danger of:
– children climbing into the dryer or hiding things in it.
– pets or other small animals climbing into it.
11
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 and in the
drain hose. The ambient room temperature should be between +2°C
and +35°C.
~ If the water is drained externally 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.
~ The tumble dryer must not be hosed down.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele original spare parts and accessories with
this tumble dryer.
If non-Miele parts are used, guarantee, 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.

The following are also selected via
the display:
Programme duration /
Estimated time remaining
– Duration of the Warm air and Cool air
programmes
The estimated duration (time remaining)
will appear in the display.
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.
– Delay start
You can select a programme and set
it to start at a later time.
The programme will start
automatically once the delay start
time has a elapsed.
– Programmable functions
Default settings can be altered to
adapt the dryer to different
requirements. See "Programmable
functions" at the end of this booklet
for more details.
Perfect Dry indicator
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.
Programmes can also finish earlier than
expected, if, for example, particularly
fine fabrics are being dried, the load is
very small or items were partially dry
beforehand.
The Perfect Dry system measures the
residual content in the laundry in the
sensor drying programmes to ensure
perfect drying results.
After a programme has started, the
electronics will estimate the duration of
the programme (time remaining). The
Perfect Dry indicator will flash while this
is happening.
After a short while, the programme
duration will appear in the display and
the indicator will go out.

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 fabrics for at least
30 seconds before drying.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Use the Automatic plus programme
for drying mixed loads of cotton and
minimum iron fabrics.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can, however,
be "fluffed up" using the Woollens
handcare programme.
16
– 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
Gentle 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.
– 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 tend to crease
more, the larger the load. This is also
the case for garments made from
very fine weave fabrics, such as
shirts or blouses.
If in doubt, divide the garments into
smaller loads.
– 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 dryer.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.
How to dry correctly
Brief instructions
C Load the tumble dryer

^ Load the laundry loosely into the
drum.
A Sort the laundry
To ensure an even drying result sort
laundry 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.
– Fasten hooks and eyes etc.
– Tie fabric belts and apron strings.
– Sew in or remove underwiring from
bras.
B Turn on the tumble dryer
^ Switch the dryer on by pressing the
On/Off jk button in.
The tumble dryer may be switched on
after loading, saving energy as the light
will not come on.
Check the laundry is right inside the
drum so that it cannot get trapped or
damaged when the door is shut.
^ Shut the door either with a gentle
swing, or lean against it and push it
shut.

Building under a continous worktop /
in a kitchen run
,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 appliance
under a worktop and there is space to
do this without removing the lid the
building-under kit is not necessary.
Otherwise it is essential.
a Protruding lid for holding when
moving the dryer (see arrows)
– The building-under kit is supplied
with its own installation instructions.
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 appliance.
d Hose for external drainage of
condensed water
e Accessories for connection to a sink
drain outlet
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, hold it by the
lid where it protrudes to the rear. To
manoeuvre the dryer out of its packing
case to its installation site hold it by the
front feet and the base of the lid.
42
With niche heights of:
– 830-840 mm, longer screw feet* are
required.
– 870-885 / 915-930 mm, one or two
raising kits* are required.
* Miele accessory available to order
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.
Installation
Levelling the appliance
,Do not block the gap between
the bottom of the tumble dryer and
the floor with plinth facings, deep
pile carpet etc. This would hinder a
sufficient flow of air to the dryer.
Room ventilation
The dryer 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 front
of the dryer and warms up the air in the
room. It is very important to ensure
adequate ventilation, e.g. by opening a
window. Otherwise drying times may be
longer.
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) to match your dryer
is required.
,Stacking kits must only be
installed by a suitably qualified fitter.
Before moving the tumble dryer
again (e.g. when moving house)
^ 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 dryer must not be
covered as this would prevent
sufficient ventilation for cooling the
condenser unit.
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 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
^ There will be a small amount of
residual water in the drain hose.
Have a container ready to collect
this.
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 tumble dryer 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.
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 for external water
connection (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 hose 4 to adapter
1.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose
clip 3 up close to the nut.

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 appliance.
^ Fit non-return valve 5 to tumble dryer
drain hose 6 (make sure it is fitted in
the correct direction - see arrow on
non-return valve).
^ Secure the non-return valve using
hose clips.
