Caring for our 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 machine
Electrical and electronic machines
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 machine.
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.

intended for use in domestic households and in similar working and
residential environments.
~ The washing machine is not intended for outdoor use.
~ It must only be used as a domestic appliance to wash items
which are specified by the manufacturer as being washable on the

incorrect or improper use or operation of the washing machine.
~ The washing machine can only be used by people with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, if they are supervised whilst using it or have been shown
how to use it in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
6
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
~ Children 8 years and older may use, clean or maintain the
washing machine without supervision only if they have been shown
how to do so in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
~ Children under 8 years of age must be kept away from the
machine unless they are constantly supervised.
~ The washing machine is not a toy! To prevent the risk of injury, do
not allow children to play with it or near it, or to play with the
controls.
~ For machines with a 'porthole' door, remember that the porthole
glass will be hot when washing at high temperatures
Do not let children touch it.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the washing machine, check it for any externally
visible damage.
Do not install or use a damaged washing machine.
~ Before connecting the washing machine, 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 washing machine 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. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for the consequences of an inadequate earthing system
(e.g. electric shock).
~ Do not connect the washing machine to the mains electricity
supply by an extension lead. Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the machine (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
original spare parts. Only when these parts are fitted can the safety
standards of the machine be guaranteed.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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.
~ If the connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced by a
Miele approved service technician to protect the user from danger.
~ The machine must be isolated from the electricity supply in the
event of a fault and during installation, maintenance and repair work.
~ The Miele "Water protection system" protects from water damage
provided the following conditions have been met:
– the machine is correctly plumbed in and connected to the
electricity supply.
– if a fault has been identified, the machine must be examined by a
competent person before further use, and repaired if necessary.
~ In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the machine 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.
~ This machine must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g.
on a ship).
~ Do not make any alterations to the washing machine, unless
authorised to do so by Miele.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ Do not install your washing machine in rooms where temperatures
below freezing may occur. Frozen hoses may burst or split. The
reliability of the electronic control unit may be impaired at
temperatures below freezing point.
~ Before using the washing machine for the first time, check that
the transit bars at the rear of the machine have been removed (see
section on "Installation and connection"). During spinning, a transit
bar which is still in place may result in damage to both the machine
and adjacent furniture or appliances.
~ Turn off the stopcock if the machine is to be left for any length of
time (e.g. holiday), especially if there is no floor drain (gully) in the
immediate vicinity.
~ Flooding danger.
If hooking the drain hose into a wash basin, check that the water can
drain off quickly enough to prevent the sink from overflowing. Make
sure the drain hose is secure, so that the force of the water flowing
out of the hose does not dislodge it.
~ Take care to ensure that foreign objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins,
paper clips) do not find their way into the machine with the laundry.
These may damage components of the machine (e.g. suds
container, drum), which in turn can result in damage to the laundry.
~ Take care when opening the drum door after using the steam
function. Danger of burning due to escaping steam and the high
temperature of the surface of the drum as well as the porthole glass.
Stand back away from the machine and wait until the steam has
dissipated.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ If the correct amount of detergent is dispensed, the machine
should not need to be descaled. If, however, you do wish to descale
the machine only use proprietary non-corrosive descaling agents
and strictly observe the instructions on the packaging. A special
descaling agent is available to order from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or via the internet on www.miele-shop.com.
~ Textiles which have been pre-treated in solvent based cleaning
agents must be thoroughly rinsed in clean water before being
washed in the machine.
~ Do not use solvent based cleaning agents, e.g. those containing
benzine, in this machine, as this may result in damage to component
parts and create toxic fumes. Such agents also pose a fire and
explosion hazard.
~ Do not use solvent based cleaning agents, e.g. those containing
benzine, to clean the outside surfaces of this machine. They can
cause damage to plastic surfaces.
~ Only use dyes specified by the manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a domestic washing machine. Always observe the
manufacturer's instructions carefully.
~ Colour run and dye removers contain sulphur compounds which
can cause damage such as corrosion. Do not use these products in
this machine.
~ If detergent comes into contact with the eyes, rinse them
thoroughly with lukewarm water immediately. If swallowed, seek
medical assistance immediately and retain the packaging or label
for reference. Those with skin problems or sensitive skin should
avoid their skin coming into contact with detergent.

instructions on how to do this.
^ After removing the transit bars (if this
has not already been done by your
fitter) press the OK button.
6. Run your first programme
The washing machine has a sensor
which measures the amount of laundry
in the drum. This determines the
amount of detergent required which
appears as a recommendation in the
display. To enable the load size sensor
to function correctly, you must first run
a Cottons r programme without any
laundry and without detergent.
^ Open the stopcock.
5. Continue preparing the washing
machine for use as described in the
Operating instruction manual
An initial wash programme now has to
be carried out in order to complete the
preparation process.

Washing environmentally and economically
Energy and water consumption
Detergent
– Water consumption and energy
usage are determined by the size of
the load.
To make the most out of your
machine, load the maximum dry load
for the programme you are using.
– Do not exceed the amounts of
detergent recommended by the
manufacturer on the packaging.
– When smaller amounts of laundry are
washed, the automatic load
recognition system will reduce the
amount of water, time and energy
used. This may mean that the time
left shown in the display is adjusted
during the course of the wash
programme.
– Use the Express 20 programme for
small loads.
– Modern detergents make it possible
to wash at lower temperatures (e.g
20°C). Washing using lower
temperature settings will save
energy.
– To maintain the hygiene of the
washing machine, carry out a hot
wash (60°C or above) using powder
detergent at regular intervals. The
Hygiene Info message will appear in
the display to remind you to carry out
a hot wash.
– Adjust the dosage to the degree of
soiling of the laundry.
– Reduce the amount of detergent for
smaller loads. Use the Load/
Detergent button.
Choosing the correct Extra option
(Short, Soak, Pre-wash)
Select:
– A wash programme together with the
Short extra option for light to normal
soiling where there are no obvious
marks.
– A wash programme without any extra
options for normal to heavy soiling
with visible staining.
– A wash programme together with the
Soak extra option for very heavily
soiled laundry.
– The Pre-wash extra option for laundry
with large amounts of dirt (e.g. dust,
sand).
When drying with a tumble dryer
Selecting the highest possible spin
speed for the wash programme will
save energy when drying in a tumble
dryer afterwards.

How to wash correctly
Brief instructions
The headings numbered A, B, C, . . .
show the operating sequence and can
be used as brief instructions.
A Sort the laundry
,If you use a solvent-based
cleaning agent (e.g. one containing
benzene) to pre-treat a stain, make
sure that any plastic parts (e.g.
buttons) are protected, and that the
cleaning agent is rinsed off before
washing the garment in the machine.
,Do not use solvent-based
cleaning agents in or on this machine.
^ Sort the laundry by colour and by
care label. Most garments have a
textile care label in the collar or side
seam.
^ Empty all pockets.
,Foreign objects (e.g. nails,
coins, paper clips, etc.) can cause
damage to garments and
components in the machine.
^ Badly soiled areas, stains etc. should
be cleaned as soon as possible,
preferably whilst still fresh. Spillages
should be carefully dabbed off using
a soft colourfast cloth. Do not rub!
Badly soiled areas can be pre-treated
with liquid detergent, stain removers
etc. first, following the manufacturer's
instructions. With particularly stubborn
stains ask your dry cleaner for advice.
20
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately
several times before being included in
a mixed load. Always wash whites and
coloureds separately.
– Curtains: Remove lead weights first
or place in a laundry bag.
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners:
Any loose wiring in bras, shirt collar
stiffeners, etc. should be removed or
sewn in.
– Knitted garments, trousers and
jeans, T-shirts and sweat shirts: Turn
inside out, if recommended by the
manufacturer.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc before washing.
– Fasten duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being rolled up
inside them.
Do not wash any items in this machine
which are specified by the
manufacturer as not washable on the
care label. (h symbol)

Make sure that no items are caught
between the drum door and seal.
The load size indicator display will
appear.
Load
8
< 25%
The display shows the amount of
laundry loaded in the drum as a % (in
25% steps) of the maximum load
permissible for the programme
selected.
^ Unfold the laundry and load loosely
into the drum. Mixing both large and
small items gives better wash results
and also helps distribute the load
evenly during spinning.
^ Shut the door with a gentle swing.
The most efficient use of energy and
water is achieved when a full load is
washed. However, do not overload as
this causes creases and reduces
cleaning efficiency.
23
How to wash correctly
G Add detergent
When the door is closed, the load size
indicator will be replaced with the
detergent percentage display.
Detergent
7
100%
The percentage shown relates to the
amount of detergent recommended by
the manufacturer on the packaging.
40%
= Add slightly less than half
the amount recommended
50%
= Add half the amount
recommended
60%
= Add slightly more than half
the amount recommended
75%
= Add three quarters of
the amount recommended
100%
= Add the full amount of
detergent recommended
You also need to take the level of
soiling and water hardness into
account.
24
It is important to dispense the correct
amount, because
too little detergent results in:
– Laundry not getting properly clean
and with time it may become grey
and hard to the touch.
– Greasy particles clinging to laundry.
– Limescale deposits on the heater
elements.
too much detergent results in:
– Excessive foam which causes a low
level of agitation and poor wash,
rinse and spin results.
– High water consumption (an
additional rinse cycle will
automatically switch in).
– A burden to the environment.

damage the laundry.
Extra options
Extra options are selected or
deselected by pressing the appropriate
button.
Steam smoothing
At the end of the programme, the
laundry is dampened with steam in
order to reduce creasing. The

With frequent washing at low temperatures, there is the danger of a build-up of
bacteria in the washing machine.
Cleaning the washing machine will significantly reduce bacteria, fungus and
biofilm and help prevent the build-up of unpleasant odours.
Notes
– Optimum results can be achieved by using Miele machine
cleaner. Alternatively a universal powder detergent can be
used.
– Dispense the machine cleaner or universal powder via the
detergent compartment.
– Do not load any laundry. The drum must be empty for the

Detergent
The correct detergent
All modern detergents produced for automatic washing machines are suitable.
Use dispensing aids, e.g. balls, if these are supplied with the detergent. Tablets
are suitable for full loads, but note that it may be impractical to reduce tablets for
smaller loads. Some tablets do not dissolve as rapidly as others, and may not be
suitable for programmes with short durations.
Do not use biological detergents on silk as the enzymes may damage the silk.
Instructions for use and recommended dosage amounts are given on the
detergent packaging.
See “Optional accessories” at the end of this booklet for details of Miele
branded care products including detergents and fabric conditioner.
1)
Liquid detergent
For programmes with a pre-wash you will need to purchase a special container
from the Miele Spare Parts Department which sits in the main wash
compartment j. Add liquid detergent to this container for the main wash and
to compartment i for the pre-wash
2)
Use powder detergent
* Specialist detergent
Detergent designed specifically for the wash programme or type of fabric.
** Only use proofing agents containing fluorochemical compounds which are
stated by the manufacturer as being "suitable for use on membrane textiles".
Do not use proofing agents which contain paraffin. Add proofing agents to
compartment §.

Detergent
The right amount to dispense will
depend on the following:
– The soiling level of the load
Lightly soiled
No visible dirt or stains. Possibly
slight body odour.
Normally soiled
Visibly dirty and/or just a few slight
stains.
Heavily soiled
Visible dirt and stains and/or dried on
soiling.
– The quantity of the laundry (add the
recommended amount of detergent)
– The water hardness level.
Check with your local water supplier
if you do not know the hardness level
in your area.
Water softeners
A water softener can be used to cut
down on the use of detergents in hard
water areas. Dispense according to the
amount specified on the packaging.
First add detergent and then the water
softener.
Miele branded water softening tablets
are available from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com.
Use a quantity of detergent as for soft
water.
Washing with several components
If you wash using several components
(e.g. special application detergents),
we recommend always dispensing the
agents into compartment j in the
following order:
1. Detergent
2. Water softeners
3. Stain remover
This way the agents are distributed
more evenly.
45
Detergent
Fabric conditioners and liquid
starch
Fabric conditioners make garments soft
to handle and help prevent static cling
when tumble drying.
Starch stiffens and gives body to items
of laundry, e.g. shirts, tablecloths and
bed linen.
Automatic dispensing of fabric
conditioner or liquid starch to
laundry at the end of a programme
^ Add the fabric conditioner or liquid
starch to compartment §. Do not
exceed the maximum level mark.
It will be dispensed automatically in the
last rinse. At the end of the programme
a small amount of water remains in the
fabric conditioner compartment §.
46
If starching frequently, thoroughly
clean the dispenser compartment,
especially the siphon tube and
fabric conditioner channel, regularly.
See "Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer". Do not use
powder starch formulations or
viscious liquid starch in the §
compartment as it will clog up.
Adding fabric conditioner or starch
separately
^ Dispense in accordance with
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
^ Dispense liquids into the §
compartment and powder or viscous
formulations into the i
compartment.
^ Turn the programme selector to
Further programmes/Settings 4 and
select the Starch programme.
^ Select a spin speed or the Rinse hold
extra option.
^ Press the Start/Stop button.
Colour run and dye removers/
dyes
^ Do not use colour run or dye
removers in this machine.
^ Dyes suitable for use in domestic
washing machines can be used.
However, please note that the salt
used in the dyeing process can
cause corrosion to stainless steel
components in the machine if you
dye frequently. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Cleaning and care
A range of Miele branded cleaning and
conditioning products is available to
order from Miele or the internet at
www.miele-shop.com.
Cleaning the drum (Hygiene
info)
Washing at low temperatures and/or
using liquid detergent can cause
bacteria and unpleasant odours to
build up in the machine. The washing
machine can be cleaned using the
Maintenance programme. This should
be done regularly, at the latest when
the Hygiene Info message appears in
the display.
,Do not use solvents, abrasive
cleaners, glass cleaners or multipurpose cleaning agents.
These could damage plastic
surfaces and other parts.
Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer
The pre-wash and main wash
compartments of the detergent
dispensing drawer are self-cleaning.
For hygiene reasons, clean the entire
drawer at regular intervals.
,Disconnect the machine from the
mains electricity supply and
withdraw the plug from the socket
before cleaning the machine.
,The machine must not be hosed
down.
External casing and fascia
panel
^ Clean the casing using a Miele Ecloth or with a mild non-abrasive
cleaning agent or soap and water
using a well wrung-out cloth. Wipe
dry with a soft cloth.
^ Pull out the detergent dispenser
drawer until a resistance is felt. Press
down the release catch and at the
same time pull the drawer right out of
the machine.
^ Clean the drawer with hot water.
^ The drum can be cleaned with a

47
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer housing
^ Clean the siphon.
1. Remove the siphon from
compartment § and rinse under hot
running water. Clean the siphon tube
in the same way.
2. Replace the siphon.
If starching frequently, thoroughly
clean the siphon and siphon tube
regularly. A build-up of liquid starch
will cause them to get clogged.
48
^ Use a bottle brush to remove
detergent residues and limescale
from the jets inside the detergent
dispenser drawer housing.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the filter in the water
inlet
The washing machine has a filter to
protect the water inlet valve.
^ First turn off the stopcock.
^ Unscrew the threaded union
connecting the free end of the inlet
hose to the stopcock.
The accessible filter in the union in the
open end of the inlet hose should be
checked every six months, or more
often if there are frequent interruptions
to the external water supply.
^ Remove the rubber seal 1 from the
recess.
^ Using pointed pliers, take hold of the
plastic filter bar 2 and remove.
^ Clean the plastic filter.
^ Put the filter and seal back in the
reverse order and reconnect the
hose.
Turn on the stopcock and check the
connection is watertight. If water drips
out, tighten the connection.
Never forget to put the filter back in
place after cleaning.

and/or power failure
^ Switch the washing machine off.
There is a lever behind the detergent
drawer fascia panel.
,Caution: if laundry has been
washed at a high temperature, water
draining out of the machine will still
be hot. Danger of scalding!
Procedure for draining the machine
Be careful not to release too much
water at once. If the flow of water is
too strong, some water can seep
into the washing machine base and
activate the water protection system
float switch. This will prevent the
washing machine from functioning.
^ Place a suitable container under the
access flap.
^ Remove the lever.
^ Use it to open the access flap.
Blocked drain outlet
If the drain outlet is blocked, up to
25 litres of water will be retained in the

Installation and connection
Installation surface
A concrete floor is the most suitable
installation surface for a washing
machine, being far less prone to
vibration during the spin cycle than
wooden floorboards or a carpeted
surface.
Please note:
^ The machine must be level and
securely positioned.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
If installing on a wooden joist floor:
Transporting the washing machine to
its installation site
To manoeuvre the machine out of its
packing case to its installation site, hold
it by the edge of the lid where it
protrudes to the rear of the machine as
well as by the handle recesses at the
front.
,Ensure that the machine feet and
the floor are dry to prevent the
machine from slipping during the
spin cycle.
Removing the transit bars
^ We recommend a plywood base (at
least 59x52x3 cm). The base should
span several joists and be bolted to
the joists and not only to the
floorboards. Check for the presence
of pipes and cables first.
If possible, install the machine in a
corner, as this is usually the most stable
part of the floor.
,If the machine is installed on a
raised plinth, it has to be secured
against slippage during spin using
retaining clips (available from the
Miele Spare Parts Dept). Otherwise
there is the danger of the machine
moving and falling off the plinth.
62
^ To remove the left and right covers
1. Pull on the attached stopper,
2. then use a screwdriver to release the
catch at the top.
Installation and connection
^ Using the spanner supplied, turn the
left-hand transit bar 90°, then
^ Turn the right-hand transit bar 90°,
then
^ withdraw the transit bar.
^ withdraw the transit bar.
63
Installation and connection
,To avoid the risk of injury the
holes for the transit bars must be
covered after the transit bars have
been removed.
^ Secure the transit bars to the back of
the washing machine. Make sure that
the top catch is located above the
holder.
^ Plug the holes with the plastic caps
as illustrated.
,The machine must not be moved
without the transit bars in place.
Store them as shown or keep them
in a safe place for future use. They
must be re-fitted if the machine is to
be moved again (e.g. when moving
house).
Re-fitting the transit bars
Re-fitting is carried out by reversing the
procedure.
64
Installation and connection
Levelling the machine
The machine must stand perfectly level
on all four feet to ensure safe and
proper operation.
Incorrect installation may increase
electricity and water consumption and
may cause the machine to move about.
Screwing out and adjusting the feet
The four adjustable screw feet are used
to level the machine. All four feet are
screwed in when the machine is
delivered.
^ Use a spirit level to check the
machine is standing level.
^ Hold foot 1 securely with a pipe
wrench. Turn counternut 2 again
using the spanner supplied until it
sits firmly up against the housing.
,All four counternuts must be
firmly up against the housing. Please
also check this for the feet which did
not need adjustment. Otherwise
there is the danger of the machine
moving about.
^ Using the spanner supplied turn
counternut 2 in a clockwise direction.
Then turn counternut 2 together with
foot 1 to unscrew.

Installation and connection
The Miele Waterproof system
The Miele Waterproof system protects
the washing machine from water
damage.
The system consists of three main
components:
1) the inlet hose
2) the electronic unit and the washing
machine housing
3) the drain hose
1) Inlet hose
– The inlet hose is fitted with an
additional electrical safety valve
which works like an automatic
stopcock and is housed in the inlet
hose connection box.
– It is pressure tested to between
7,000 and 10,000 kPa.
– The inlet hose has a protective
sleeve.
2) Electronic unit and washing
machine housing
– Sump
Any leaking water is collected in a
sump in the base of the machine. A
float switches off the safety valves,
preventing any more water from
flowing into the machine and water in
the suds container is pumped away.
– Overflow protection
This prevents the washing machine
taking in too much water. If the water
level exceeds a certain level, the
drain pump switches in and pumps
the excess water away.
3) Drain hose
The drain hose is protected by a
ventilation system which prevents the
washing machine from being
emptied completely.
Any leaking water from the inlet hose
is fed into the sump through this
protective sleeve. A float switches off
the safety valve, preventing any
more water from flowing into the
machine and water in the suds
container is pumped away.
67
Installation and connection
Connection to the water supply
,The plastic casing of the safety
valve contains electrical
components. The Waterproof system
must only be connected to its own
stopcock. It must not be connected
to mixer taps or similar and must not
be fitted in areas where there is the
risk of water or other liquids
reaching it.
The machine should be connected to
the mains water supply in accordance
with local and national safety
regulations. The German authorities do
not require it to have a non-return valve
as the washing machine has been
designed to comply with DIN
regulations.
The machine is designed to operate
with a flow pressure of between 100
and 1,000 kPa (1-10 bar). If it is higher
than 1,000 kPa it is essential to fit a
pressure reducing valve.
Connection to the mains water supply
should incorporate a mains stopcock
with 3/4" thread. The stopcock should
be fitted by a qualified plumber.
,The connection point is subject
Do not get wet.
to mains water pressure. Turn on the
stopcock slowly and check for leaks.
Correct the position of the washer
and union if appropriate.
The washing machine is not suitable
for connection to a hot water supply.
The protective sleeve of the hose
must not be damaged or kinked.
68
Installation and connection
Maintenance and care
If you intend to unscrew the Miele
Waterproof system hose from the
stopcock it is essential to disconnect
the machine from the electricity supply
first.
Only use a Miele Waterproof system
hose should you need a replacement.
In order to protect the water inlet
valve, the dirt filter in the water inlet
valve connection must not be
removed.
Extension hose
A 1.5 metre long (metal) extension hose
is available from your Miele dealer or
the Miele Spare Parts Department as an
optional extra.
This hose is tested to withstand
pressures of up to 14,000 kPa and can
be used as a flexible extension to the
water supply.
N.B. Using this hose renders the
Waterproof system safety valve on the
inlet hose ineffective.
69
Installation and connection
Connection to the drainage
system
Please note:
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre*. The
drain hose must not be kinked as this
restricts drainage. The swivel elbow at
the end of the hose can be turned in
either direction, or can be detached if
required, with a sharp twist and pull.
If required, the drain hose can be
extended to a length of 5 m. The
necessary parts can purchased from
the Miele Spare Parts Department or
your Miele dealer.
* For a delivery head of more than 1 m
(up to a max. of 1.8 m) a replacement
drain pump will need to be fitted.
Please contact the Miele Spare Parts
Department or your Miele Dealer.
Drain hose connection:
1. Direct into a sink or basin:
Please note the following:
– Hook the hose over the edge and
secure.
– Make sure that the water can drain
away freely without hindrance.
Otherwise there is a risk of water
overflowing or of some of the drained
water being sucked back into the
machine.
2. Connected securely to a plastic
drain pipe with a rubber nipple.
There is no need to use a non-return
valve.
3. Connected securely to a standpipe.
4. Connected securely to a floor gully.
