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 your
appliance 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
Correct application
~ This tumble dryer is only intended
~ It is essential to read these
instructions.
This tumble dryer conforms to
current safety requirements.
Inappropriate use can, however, lead
to personal injury and damage to
property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the tumble dryer, please
read these instructions carefully

for drying fabrics which have been
washed in a water solution, and 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. Miele cannot be held liable
for damage resulting from incorrect or
improper use or operation.
~ This appliance is not intended for
use by persons (including children) with
reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience or
knowledge, unless they are supervised
whilst using it or have been shown how
to use it by a person responsible for
their safety.
Safety with children
~ Keep children away from the tumble
dryer at all times. It is not a toy! To avoid
the risk of injury do not allow them to
play on or near it or to play with its
controls. Supervise children whilst you
are using it.
~ Older children may only use it if its
operation has been clearly explained to
them, and they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of incorrect
use.

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 desposits (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 which have been treated with
inflamable cleaning agents or
contain residues of acetone, alcohol,
benzine, petrol, stain remover,
turpentine, wax, wax remover or other
chemicals (e.g. mops and floor
cloths).
– 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:
– 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.
– items which contain padding or
fillings (e.g. pillows, jackets). If these
were damaged the filling could 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 is complete.
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.

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.
~ 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 dryer must not be used without

The ambient room temperature should
be between +2°C and +35°C.
~ If the water is drained externally
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.

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.
14
– 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.

show the operating sequence and can
be used as a brief guide to using your
dryer.
^ Press the Door button to open the
door.
^ Load the laundry loosely into the
drum.
A Sort the laundry
To ensure an even drying result
separate out 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.

^ Switch the dryer on by pressing the
I-On/0-Off button in.
The tumble dryer may be switched on
after loading, saving energy as the light

Fluff is principally the
result of friction when
garments are being worn
and washed. Machine
drying hardly causes any
fluff to form and has been
established by research
institutes to have no
appreciable effect on the
lifetime of fabric.
Feathers are a natural
product and this is quite
normal.
Fluff is collected by the
fluff filters and can be
easily removed (see
"Cleaning and Care").
The smell will dissipate
after sufficient airing.

Transporting the machine to its
installation site
When moving the machine, 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.

41
Installation and connection
Levelling the machine
,The air inlet and outlet vents on
the front and back of the machine
must not be covered as this would
prevent sufficient ventilation for
cooling the condenser unit.
Room ventilation
The machine 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 vents on the front of the machine
and warms up the air in the room.
It is very important, particulary if the
room is small, to ensure adequate
ventilation. Opening a window, for
example, will allow more air to enter
the room. Otherwise running times
and energy consumption could be
increased.
Before moving the machine again
(e.g. when moving house)
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
42
After each use a small quantity of
condensed water will collect in the area
around the pump. This water can run
out if the machine 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 machine. Any remaining condensed
water will then be fed into the
condensed water container or out
through the drain hose.
Installation and connection
External condensed water
outlet
^ There will be a small amount of
residual water in the drain hose.
Have a container ready to collect this.
General notes
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.
^ 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.
43
Installation and connection
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 (available as an optional
accessory). A non-return valve will
prevent the risk of back-flow out of
the dryer which could cause
damage.
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.
44
^ Remove the following from the back
of the dryer at the top:
Adapter 1 and hose clip 3 behind it.
Installation and connection
^ 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 the hose 4 to
adapter 1.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose clip
3 up close to the nut.
,Non-return valve 5 has to be

fitted in the correct direction (see
arrow on non-return valve).
^ Secure the non-return valve using
hose clips.

Electrical connection
Electrical connection U.K.
Non-rewireable plugs BS 1363
All electrical work should be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
person, in strict accordance with
current national and local safety
regulations (BS 7671 in the UK).
The fuse cover must be refitted when
changing the fuse, and if the fuse cover
is lost, the plug must not be used until a
suitable replacement is obtained. The
colour of the correct replacement cover
is that of the coloured insert in the base
of the plug, or the colour that is
embossed in words on the base of the
plug (as applicable to the design of
plug fitted).
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation work
has been carried out.
The appliance is supplied with a mains
cable with moulded plug ready for
connection to a 230-240V mains supply.
Please ensure the connection data
quoted on the data plate match the
household mains supply.
Connection should be made via a
suitable switched socket which is easily
accessible after installation.
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a suitable residual current device
(RCD). Contact a qualified electrician
for advice.
Do not connect via an extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
46
Replacement fuses should be ASTA
approved to BS 1362 and have the
correct rating. Replacement fuses and
fuse covers may be purchased from
your local electrical supplier.
