Dishwasher detergents contain irritant
and corrosive ingredients. They can
cause burning in the mouth and throat if
swallowed, or inhibit breathing. Consult
a doctor immediately if detergent has
been swallowed or inhaled.
~ Do not drink water from the
dishwasher! Harmful residues could be
present.
~ Do not fill the rinse aid reservoir or
salt container with detergent. It will
destroy the rinse aid compartment and

Caring for the environment
Energy saving washing
This dishwasher is economical in the
use of water and electricity. For best
results follow these tips:
^ For lowest energy consumption you
may connect the dishwasher to a
cold water source.
^ For fastest possible wash times, with
slightly higher energy consumption,
connect the dishwasher to a hot
water source.
^ Make full use of the baskets without
overloading for the most economical
washing.
^ Use the correct amount of detergent
and rinse aid. Detergent dosage is
dependent upon the amount of
soiling and type of dishware being
washed. See the "Program Guide" for
more information.
^ When using powder or liquid
detergent, reduce the amount to 2/3
of the normal amount when washing
a small load.
Disposal of the packing
material
The cardboard box and packaging
protect the appliance during shipping.
These materials are biodegradable and
recyclable. Please recycle.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of children.
Danger of suffocation!
Disposal of an old machine
Old appliances may contain materials
that can be recycled. Please contact
your local recycling authority about the
possibility of recycling these materials.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal. Before discarding an old
appliance, unplug it from the outlet, cut
off its power cord and remove any
doors to prevent hazards.
^ Choose a program that best suits the
degree of soiling and the type of
dishes being washed.
9
Before using for the first time
To open the door
To close the door
^ Push the baskets in.
^ Lift the door and push until it clicks
into position.
^ Pull the handle to open the door.
If the door is opened during operation,
the dishwasher will stop running. Once
the door is closed the program will
continue.
10
Before using for the first time
Water softener
To achieve good cleaning results, the
dishwasher needs soft water (water that
is low in minerals). Hard water results in
calcium deposits on dishware and in
the dishwasher.
If your tap water hardness is above 4 °d
(4 gr/gal) the water should be softened.
The built-in water softener is designed
for this purpose. The water softener is
suitable for a water hardness up to
70 °d (73 gr/gal).
– The water softener requires
dishwasher salt.
If using "Tab" products which include
salt, you should still add salt to the
machine to achieve optimal cleaning
results.
In areas where the water hardness
fluctuates (e.g. 37-50 °d [39-52 gr/gal])
always program the machine to the
higher value (in this example 50 °d
[52 gr/gal]).
If there is a fault, it will help the service
technician to know the hardness of your
local water supply.
Please note your water hardness
below:
°d (gr/gal)
The water hardness was programmed
at 1-4 °d (1-4 gr/gal) by factory default.
– The dishwasher must be correctly
programmed to match the hardness
of your water.
– Your local water authority will be able
to advise you of the exact water
hardness level in your area.
If the hardness of your local supply
is constantly lower than 4 °d (4 gr/gal),
you do not need to add water
softener salt. However the water
hardness level must still be
programmed.
11
Before using for the first time
Programming the water softener
During programming, other indicator
lights flash and light up each time you
press a button. Only the indicator lights
in the following operating steps are
important for the programming.
The set value is indicated by the

13
Before using for the first time
Every dishwasher is tested before
leaving the factory. Any water
remaining in the machine is from the
final factory test and does not
indicate that the machine has been
used.
Important: The salt container must
be filled with 1 quart (1 l) of water
before adding salt for the first time
so the salt can dissolve
properly. Water does not have to be
added with subsequent refills.
Filling the salt container
,Inadvertently filling the salt
container with dishwashing
detergent (including liquid
detergent) will damage the water
softener.
,Only use water softener salt
specially formulated for
dishwashers. Other salts may
contain insoluble additives which
can impair the water softener.
If using "Tab" products which
include salt, still add salt to the
machine to achieve optimal cleaning
results and ensure long-term
functioning of the water softener.
^ Remove the lower basket from the
wash cabinet and unscrew the salt
container lid.
When opening the salt container,
water will run out. Open the
container only to refill salt.
14
^ Place the provided funnel over the
salt container and carefully fill it with
salt. The salt container holds approx.
2.2 lbs (1 kg) of salt, depending on
the type of salt.
^ Clean any excess salt from the
threads of the container opening.
Screw the lid on firmly.
^ Immediately after each refill, run the "
Express" program without a load.
This will remove any traces of salt
from inside the wash cabinet.
Before using for the first time
Refill salt message
^ When the "Salt" indicator light comes
on, refill the salt after the program
has finished.
After the container has been filled, the
"Salt" indicator light can remain on for a
short time. It will go out once the
reactivation process is complete.
The "Salt" indicator light is turned off if
you have programmed the dishwasher
to a water hardness below 4 °d
(4 gr/gal)).
,Immediately after each refill, run
the "Express" program without a
load. This will remove any traces of
salt from inside the wash cabinet.
15
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Rinse aid helps to prevent spotting on
dishes and glassware.
The rinse aid is filled in the reservoir
and the set amount will be
automatically dosed.
,Filling the rinse aid reservoir with
detergent will damage the reservoir.
Only pour rinse aid formulated for
residential dishwashers into the
reservoir.
When using "Tab" detergents rinse
aid is not needed.
Adding rinse aid
^ Pour liquid rinse aid into the reservoir
until it is visible on the surface of the
screen.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
3.7 oz (110 ml).
^ Press on the flap until you hear it
click shut. Failure to close it all the
way allows water to enter the
reservoir during the wash program.
^ Clean any spilled rinse aid. The flap
will remain closed during normal
operation.
Rinse aid indicator

come in contact with food dyes.
^ All items can be placed anywhere in
the baskets.
^ Load dishes so that water can reach
all surfaces. Do not place dishes or
cutlery inside other pieces.
^ Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
^ Hollow items such as cups and
glasses should be placed upside
down in the baskets.
^ To ensure good water coverage, tall,
narrow and hollow items, i.e. vases
or champagne glasses, should be
placed in the center of the basket
rather than in the corners.
^ Concave based items such as mugs
or bowls, should be placed at an
angle so that water does not pool.
18
^ 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.
^ Place very small items in the cutlery
tray or basket so they do not fall to
the bottom of the wash cabinet.
^ Food residue and spilled 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.

Items not recommended for
dishwashing
– Cutlery with wooden handles
– Wooden cutting boards
– Glued items such as old knives with
handles glued together around the
shank of the blade
– Handmade craft items, antique,
metal trimmed or decorative
glassware
Glassware:
– There are no standard guidelines for
washing glassware, when in doubt
wash by hand.
– When purchasing new dishes,
glasses and cutlery, make sure they
are dishwasher safe. Only wash
items marked "dishwasher safe" in
the dishwasher.
– Plastic items that are not heat
resistant
– If fine glassware is washed in the
dishwasher select the "China &
Crystal" program*. This will reduce
the risk of clouding.
– Copper, brass, tin or aluminum
Silver and aluminum:
– Dishes with color painted over the
glaze. These dishes may fade over
time
– Silver or aluminum items may tarnish.
– Fine glassware and crystal items
should only be washed using the
"China & Crystal" program*.
Otherwise clouding or etching may
occur after frequent washing.
– Cast iron pots and pans
* depending on model
If unsure whether your china and
crystal are dishwasher safe, please
check with the manufacturer. The
China & Crystal program*, although
extremely gentle and thorough can
cause the china and crystal to "wear"
if they are not dishwasher safe.
– 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.
– If left to dry, foods containing sulfur
can discolor silver. These include
egg yolk, onions, mayonnaise,
mustard, fish and marinades.
– Silverware may tarnish or pit if
washed next to stainless steel.
Leave space between these metals.
– Clean aluminum items, e.g. grease
filters, with domestic dishwasher
detergent only.

smaller pieces.
^ Load the upper basket with small,
lightweight, or delicate items such as
cups, saucers, glasses, dessert
bowls and flat pans.
^ Long items such as soup ladles,
mixing spoons and long knives
should be placed lying down across
the front of the upper basket.
21
Loading the dishwasher
Adjusting the upper basket
The upper basket can be raised or
lowered to accommodate tall items.
The basket can also be angled to fit tall
items in both, the upper and lower
baskets. The angles should not be set
to opposite extremes. This will block the
middle spray arm. Take care when
sliding the basket in and out in this
position.
^ Slide out the upper basket.
^ Pull up the levers at the sides of the
upper basket and adjust the basket
height.
^ Release the levers and the basket will
lock in place.
22
Depending on the setting of the upper
basket, a variety of plate dimensions
can be accommodated.
For example: If the upper basket is in
its highest position a plate with a
diameter of 12 3/16" (31 cm) can be fit in
the lower basket.
Loading the dishwasher
Lower basket
Foldable spikes
The front two rows of spikes can be

For easier unloading cutlery should be
grouped in zones, one for knives, one
for forks, one for spoons, etc.
Place knives with the cutting edge
down and forks with the prongs
between the holders. Spoons should be
placed in the opposite direction with
the handles between the holders so
that water can run off more easily.
The upper spray arm must not be
blocked by tall cutlery items.

The triple filter system in the base of the
wash cabinet prevents food from being
redeposited on dishes. It also protects
the circulation pump from damage
caused by foreign objects (e.g. broken
glass, bones). During normal use, the
filter system is self-cleaning.
,The machine must not be used
without all the filters in place!
^ Check and clean the filter system
periodically for any trapped or
foreign objects.
The level of soiling and time it takes
before the filters need cleaning will vary
depending on your household usage.
^ Turn off the dishwasher before
cleaning.
^ Turn the handle counterclockwise to
release the triple filter system a.
^ Lift the filter combination out of the
machine b. Remove any solid
particles and rinse under running
water. Scrub with a nylon brush if

Waterproof system
All Miele dishwashers have a safety
valve located on the incoming water
line and a sealed underside with a
water sensor.
If a fault occurs, the water intake is
stopped and the drain pump is
activated. Water damage, if any, is
minimized.
Providing the dishwasher was installed
correctly by a Miele technician, the
waterproof system will protect you from
water damage throughout the lifetime of
the machine.
Connection to the water
supply
,Installation, repairs and other
work by unqualified persons could
be dangerous.
,Do not drink water from the
dishwasher!
– The dishwasher can heat its own
water to the temperature required by
the wash program. This allows for
connection of the machine to either a
hot (max. 140°F / 60°C) or cold water
source.
For lowest energy consumption you
may connect the dishwasher to a
cold water source.
For fastest possible wash times, with
slightly higher energy consumption,
connect the dishwasher to a hot
water source.
– The inlet hose is approximately 5 ft.
(1.5m) long.
– The water inlet hose comes
equipped with a 3/4" female hose
thread connector. This can be
directly connected to a water supply
with 3/4" MHT (male hose thread
ends).
If not connected directly to a water
supply valve, an appropriate
adapter (not required) is required.
53
Plumbing
– Water pressure: Must be between
4.5 - 145 psi (0.3 - 10 bar).
– If the water pressure if lower, a
"Water Intake" notification will be
shown. See "Frequently Asked
Questions" for more information.
– If the water pressure is higher than
shown, a pressure reducing valve
must be used.
Ensure that the water connection is
secure after the first use.
,To prevent damage to the
dishwasher, it must only be
connected to a fully vented drainage
system.
,Do not cut the intake hose. It
contains electrical wiring. If the hose
is cut, the dishwasher will not work.
There will be a water leak and you
could be injured. If the hose is too
long, coil it neatly and place it
behind the machine.
54
Plumbing
Drainage
– The machine comes equipped with a
built-in non-return valve on the
discharge side to prevent waste
water from flowing back into the
dishwasher.
– The dishwasher is equipped with a
5 ft (1.5 m) flexible drain hose with an
internal diameter of 7/8" (22 mm).
– Drain hose extensions and adapters
can be ordered from Miele.
The maximum drain hose length is
13 ft. (4 m), max. drain height: 39"
(1 m).
– Use the clamp provided to attach the
hose to the dishwashers P trap or
disposal connection (see the
"Installation Diagram").
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
,Make sure the hose is not kinked
or cut when pushing the machine
under the countertop.
Venting the drainage system
If the dishwasher drain hose is
connected to a floor drain or to a drain
pipe that is less than 8" (20 cm) above
the floor, the drain must be vented.
Otherwise the water inside the
dishwasher may siphon out during the
wash program.
^ Open the dishwasher door and
remove the lower basket.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove.
The hose must always be attached
on the sink side of the P trap.
When attaching the hose to a
garbage disposal fitting, make sure
the plug which is normally blocking
the fitting is knocked out or
removed.
– The hose can be angled to the left or
right side at the rear of the machine.
– The existing nipple that the drain
hose is connected to may be
designed for various hose diameters.
If the nipple diameter is to large or to
small it should be replaced or an
adapter may be used. If the nipple
extends more than 2" (50 mm) into
the drain hose it should be
shortened, or the hose could clog.
^ Cut off the vent cap located at the
right rear of the triple filter system, as
illustrated.
