saving
washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally economical in the use of water and electricity, For best results follow these tips:
[] For lowest energy consumption and
the gentlest washing of china and
crystal, connect the dishwasher to a
cold water source,
[] For fastest possible wash times, yet
higher energy consumption, connect
the dishwasher to a hot water source,
[] Make full use of the baskets without
overloading for the most economical
washing,
[] Choose a program that best suits the
degree of soiling and the type of
dishes being washed,
[] If baskets are only half full, select the
"Economy" program,
[] Use the correct amounts of detergent
and rinse aid,

softener
To achieve good cleaning results, the
dishwasher needs soft water. Hard water results in calcium deposits on
dishware and in the dishwasher.
If your tap water hardness is above
8 gr/gal (values are in US gallons)
(!40 ppm), the water should be softened. This takes place automatically in
the unit's integrated water softener.
-
-
-
14
Your local water authority wil! be able
to advise you of the water hardness
level in your area.
The dishwasher must be programmed to correspond to the water
hardness in your area.
The water softener must be filled with
dishwasher salt for reactivation.
If your water hardness is consistently
lower than 8 gr/gal (!40 ppm), you do
not need to add dishwasher salt. However, the dishwasher must still be programmed to correspond to the local
water hardness.
Where the water hardness fluctuates
e.g. between 9- 17 gr/gal (!60- 3!0
ppm), always program the machine to
the higher value, 17 gr/ga! (310 ppm)in
this example.
If there is a fault, it will help the service
technician to know the hardness of your
local water supply.
[] Please note the water hardness:

Before using for the first time
Filling the salt reservoir
To fill the saJt reservoir:
If your water hardness level is greater
than 8 gr/gal, the salt reservoir should
be filled before the first use and when
the "Salt" indicator lights.
[] Remove the lower basket.
Only use water softener salt specially
formulated for dishwashers. Other salts
may contain insoluble additives which
can impair the water softener.
[] Unscrew and remove the salt reservoir cap located on the floor of the
wash cabinet.
[] Place the provided funnel over the
salt reservoir.
The proper salt can be purchased from
your Miele dealer or Miele's Technical
Service Department.
Carefully fill with salt. The salt reservoir holds approximately 4.5 Ibs
(2 kg) of sail As it is filled, water will
run
out,
[] Clean any excess salt from the
threads of the reservoir opening.
[] Screw the cap on firmly.
[] If the dishwasher will not be used immediately, run the "Rinse & Hold" program. This wil! remove any traces of
salt from inside the wash cabinet.

z_Do not wash items soiled with
ash, sand, wax, grease or paint in
the dishwasher,
Ash and sand do not dissolve and
will be distributed through out the inside of the dishwasher.
Wax, grease and paint will cause
permanent discoloration or damage
to the dishwasher.
[] Scrape food from dishes before placing in the dishwasher,
Do not rinse dishes,
[] The spray arms must not be blocked
by items that are too tall or hang
through the baskets. Check clearance by manually rotating the spray
arms.
[] Food residue and spilt liquids should
be cleaned from the sides of the
dishwasher door. These are outside
of the wash cabinet and are not
cleaned by water from the spray
arms.
[] Load dishes so that water can reach
all surfaces. Do not place dishes and
cutlery inside other pieces.
[] Hollow items such as cups and
glasses should be placed upside
down in the upper basket.
[] Concave based items, such as mugs
or bowls, should be placed at an angle so that water does not pool.
[] To ensure good water coverage tall,
narrow, hollow pieces, such as a
vase, should be placed in the center
of the basket, rather than in the corners.
[] Small cups and glasses should be
placed on the cup racks. Taller mugs
and glasses can be placed beneath
the rack.
[] Place very small items in the cutlery
tray or basket so they do not fall to
the bottom of the wash cabinet.

There are no standard guidelines for
washing glassware but, when in
doubt wash by hand.
- Wash delicate glassware with a low
temperature program and without the
extended drying feature to reduce
the risk of clouding. See the "Program guide".
-
If crystal or delicate glasses will be

Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may be damp or spotted
at the end of a program where water
has adhered to the polish. This can
be rubbed off with a soft, dry cloth.
Silver that has been cleaned in an
immersion dip is usually dry at the
end of a program, but may tarnish.
