Warning and safety instructions
Warning and safety instructions
Read the operating instructions before using this machine for the first
time. They contain important information about the safety, use and
maintenance of the machine. This
way you will avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the machine.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and ensure that new
users are familiar with the content.
Pass them on to any future owner of
the machine.
Correct usage
Only use the washing machine to
wash items which are specified by
the manufacturer to be machine-washable on the wash-care label, and textiles composed of hand-washable wool
or wool blend fabrics as well as satin,
lace, silk and other hand-washable garments.
Any other applications may be dangerous. The manufacturer is not liable
for damage resulting from improper
use or operation.
This appliance should not be operated by children. Supervise its use
by the elderly or infirm.
Technical safety
Before setting up the machine,
check it for any externally visible
damage. Do not install and use a damaged machine.
Before connecting the machine,
ensure that the connection data on
the data plate (fusing, voltage and frequency) match the mains electricity
6
supply. If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the machine and an effective earthing
system which complies with local and
national regulations. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is
regularly tested by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
The machine is built in accordance
with current safety requirements.
Unauthorised repairs could result in unforeseen dangers for the user, for
which the manufacturer cannot accept
responsibility. Repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele approved
engineer.
Ensure current is not supplied to the appliance while maintenance or repair
work is being carried out.
The machine 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and the plug is withdrawn, or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– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
Warning and safety instructions
The Miele “Waterproof 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.
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.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or other vermin,
pay particular attention to keeping the
appliance 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 appliance guarantee.
Use
Do not install your washing machine in rooms where temperatures below freezing may occur. Frozen
hoses may burst under pressure.The reliability of the electronic control unit
may be impaired at temperatures
below freezing point.
Before using the machine for the
first time, check that the transit fitting at the rear of the machine has
been removed (see section on "Installation"). During spinning, a transit fitting
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. Otherwise this will result in flooding.
Take care to ensure that foreign
objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins,
paper clips) do not find their way into
the machine with the washing. These
may damage components of the machine (e.g. suds container, drum),
which in turn can result in damage to
the washing.

Warning and safety instructions
7
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.
Textiles which have been pretreated in solvent based cleaning
agents must be thoroughly rinsed in
clean water before being washed in the
machine.
Never use solvent based cleaning
agents in this machine, as this may
result in damage to component parts
and create toxic fumes. Such detergents also pose a fire and explosion hazard.
Only use dyes specified by the
manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a washing machine. Always observe the manufacturer’s instructions
carefully.
Dye removers may contain sulphur
compounds which cause damage
such as corrosion. Do not use dye
removers in this machine.
For machines with a ’porthole’
door, remember that the porthole
glass will be hot when washing at very
high temperatures. Do not let children
touch it.
Always make sure the drum is stationary before reaching in to
remove washing. Reaching into a moving drum is extremely dangerous.
8
Accessories
Accessory parts may only be fitted
when expressly approved by
Miele. If other parts are used, guarantee, performance and product liability
claims may be invalidated.
Disposal of your old machine
Before discarding an old machine
unplug it. Render the plug useless.
Cut off the cable directly behind the appliance to prevent misuse.

Special programmes
Delicates and Silks / programmes
– Programme for hand-washable
fabrics (Silks /)
In these programmes the laundry is
washed and spun very gently to reduce creasing and the amount of ironing required, thus providing "Easy care"
for your laundry.
Hand-washable fabrics which crease
easily but do not contain wool can
be washed in the Silks / programme.
– Programme for hand-washable
fabrics (WOOLLENS /)
Hand-washable or machine-washable
wool or wool blend fabrics can be
washed in the WOOLLENS / programme.

In the:
Programmable functions
– COTTONS
– MINIMUM IRON
– Mixed wash
programmes, the washing machine
measures the amount of water being
taken up by the laundry and uses this
to calculate the load during the first 10
minutes. If the machine recognises a
smaller load it will shorten the programme time by up to 60 minutes. The
shortened time is achieved by, for
example, reducing the number of
rinses.
Soak
If a soak time has been selected, this is
added to the programme wash time in
the display to give a total running time.

Before using for the first time
Before using for the first time
Before using the machine for the
first time ensure that it is correctly installed and connected. See the relevant section under “Installation”.
Also check that the fluff filter is securely tightened. Otherwise there is
a risk of water leakage during use.
For safety reasons spinning is not
possible until the machine has been
prepared for using for the first time. To
activate the spinning function you must
run a wash programme without any
laundry.
This also activates the ball valve. The
ball valve prevents detergent escaping
from the suds container into the sump
during a wash programme, thus making maximum use of the detergent.
The wash programme must be run without detergent. Using detergent could
result in an excessive build-up of foam.
Turn on the stopcock.
Press the I-ON/0-OFF button in.
Turn the programme selector to
COTTONS 40°C.
Press START.
When this programme has finished
your washing machine is ready for
using for the first time.

Washing environmentally and economically
Washing environmentally and economically
–
– Water consumption and energy
usage are determined by the size of
the load. Load to the maximum rec–
ommended for the programme selected.
– To save energy wash normally and
lightly soiled laundry at lower temperatures. The 95°C Cottons programme is probably only needed in
exceptional circumstances, e.g. for
oil based stains or where a very hot
wash is required.
– Use the Mixed wash or the Quick
wash programme for smaller
amounts of laundry.
– A main wash (programme without
pre-wash) is sufficient for cleaning
normally soiled laundry.
– By using the additional option Soak
for heavily soiled laundry you can select a lower temperature in the main
wash.
Use the Short wash option for normally or very lightly soiled laundry.
Do not exceed the amounts of detergent which may be recommended
by the manufacturer on the packaging.
– Reduce the amounts of detergent
with smaller loads, (e.g. with a half
load, approx. one third less detergent).
– Select the highest suitable spin
speed in the wash programme when
tumble drying afterwards.
– Load recognition and automatic rinsing can cause the duration of a programme to vary greatly. The main
wash may be shortened and a rinse
cycle omitted depending on the
amount of laundry.
– Use the additional option Soak instead of Pre-wash with heavily soiled
laundry.
If Soak is followed immediately by a
main wash the same suds are used.

How to wash correctly
How to wash correctly
Before washing
1 Sort the laundry
With particularly stubborn stains ask
your dry cleaner for advice.
Do not used solvent-based cleaning
agents in this machine.
Sort the laundry by colour and by
care label symbol. Most garments
have a textile care label in the collar
or side seam. See the following
pages for information on which programmes to use for different fabric
types.
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately several times before being included in a
mixed load.
Empty all pockets.
Delicate textiles should be washed separately in a delicates programme (use
a washing bag where appropriate).
Foreign objects (e.g. nails, coins,
paper clips, etc.) can cause damage to garments and components
in the machine.
– Curtains:
Remove lead weights and strips or
place in a laundry bag.
Badly soiled areas, e.g. collars and
cuffs, and water soluble stains can
be pre-treated with bar soap, liquid
detergent or detergent mixed into a
solution or paste.
– 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.
Do not wash any items in this machine
which are specified by the manufacturer as non-machine washable on
the care label. (h symbol)

4 Load the drum
Unfold the laundry and load loosely
in the drum. To achieve best results
it is advisable to make up mixed
loads consisting of both large and
small items. This improves the washing effect and helps distribute the
load evenly to keep the machine
stable and reduce the noise level
during spinning.
To save energy and water try to load
the maximum amount for the programme selected.
However, be careful not to overload the
machine. Overloading reduces the
wash result and causes more creasing.
Turn the programme selector to the
required programme.
The maximum duration for the programme will appear in the display.

It is important to dispense the correct
amount, because . . .
. . . too little results in the following:
– Laundry will not be properly clean
and will in time become grey and
hard to the touch.
– Greasy particles cling to the laundry.
– Limescale deposits on the heater elements.
. . . too much results in the following:
– 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.

Programme sequence
This washing machine has fully electronic controls with automatic load recognition. The machine determines the
amount of water to use depending on
the load and the absorbtion rate of the
laundry as water is taken in. The programme sequence and duration will
therefore vary with the load.
The programme sequences outlined
below are based on the basic programme with a full load.
Additional options which can be
selected have not been taken into
account.

Detergent
Detergent
All modern detergents produced for
automatic washing machines are suitable, including liquid, compact (concentrated), tablets and special application detergents. Use dispensing aids,
e.g. balls, if these are supplied with the
detergent.
Woollens and knitwear containing wool
mixtures and hand-washable garments
should be washed using a detergent
specifically designed for washing woollens.
Silk should be washed using a liquid
detergent specifically designed for
washing woollens. Do not use biological detergents on silk as the enzymes
may damage the silk!
Add detergent according to the
amount recommended on the packaging.
The right amount to dispense will depend on the following:
– The quantity of laundry.
– The soiling level of the laundry.
Water softeners
A water softener, such as Calgon can
be used to cut down on the use of
detergents in extremely hard water
areas. Dispense according to the
amount specified on the packaging.
First add detergent and then the water
softener.
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 softener
3. Stain remover e.g. Biotex.
This way the agents are distributed
more efficiently.
Lightly soiled
No visible dirt or stains. Possibly
slight body odour.
Normally soiled
Visibly dirty and/or just a few slight
stains.
Heavily soiled
Stains and soiling clearly visible.
29
Detergent
Fabric conditioners and liquid
starch
Fabric conditioners make garments
soft and fluffy 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.
Dispense according to the amount
specified on the packaging.
Automatic dispensing of fabric conditioners or liquid starch to laundry at
the end of a programme
If starching frequently, clean the dispenser compartment and especially
the siphon tube and conditioner
channel. See "Cleaning the detergent dispenser drawer".

Dye removers / dyes
Do not use dye removers in the
washing machine.
Only use dyes specified by the
manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a washing machine. Always
observe the manufacturer’s instructions carefully.
Add the fabric conditioner or liquid
starch to compartment §. Do not exceed the maximum level mark.
The conditioner or liquid starch is automatically dispensed in the last rinse. At
the end of the programme a small
amount of water remains in the fabric
conditioner compartment §.

Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
Disconnect the appliance from the
mains electricity supply and withdraw the plug from the socket prior
to cleaning the machine.
Clean the casing with a mild non-abrasive detergent or soap and water.
Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Clean the fascia panel with a damp
cloth and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
The drum can be cleaned using a
suitable proprietary stainless-steel
cleaning agent.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, glass
cleaners or all-purpose cleaning
agents. These might damage plastic surfaces and other components
because of the chemicals they contain.
The washing machine must not be
hosed down.
38
Extra cleaning
Carry out a hot wash (70°C or above)
with powder detergent approx. every 6
weeks to help prevent deposits building up in the machine. These can
occur when washing is mainly done at
low temperatures, and also lead to unpleasant smells. If you have no reason
to wash occasionally at this high temperature, then run a Cottons 95°C programme with detergent but no laundry
at regular intervals.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer
Remove detergent residues regularly.
Clean the siphon.
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.
1. Remove the siphon from compartment §. Wash under running warm
water. Clean the siphon tube in the
same way.
2. Replace the siphon.
Clean the detergent drawer with
warm water.
39
Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the fluff (drain) filter
and pump
Check the drain filter initially after 3-4
washes to ascertain how often it is
likely to require cleaning.
With normal cleaning approx. 2 litres of
water run out.
If the drain outlet is clogged, more
water will be retained in the machine
(up to 25 litres).
Caution: If laundry has been
washed at a high temperature,
water draining out of the machine
will still be hot.
Use it to open the access flap.
Place a dish under the access flap.
There is a filter flap opener located behind the detergent drawer facia panel
(see illustration).
Turn the fluff filter lid round 2-3 times.
Do not take it right out.
Remove the opener.
40
With large volumes of water the dish
will need to be emptied several times.
Secure the fluff filter back into position
and empty the dish before repeating
the procedure.
Cleaning and care
Once the flow of water ceases:
Clean the inside of the fluff filter housing. Remove any deposits of limescale and detergent or foreign objects from the thread of the filter
housing and filter unit (as these objects can cause a leakage of water).
Deposits of limescale are often a
sign of underdosage of powder.
Put the fluff filter back in place and
secure.
Make sure the fluff filter is securely
tightened. Otherwise there is a risk
of water leakage during use.
Remove the fluff filter completely.
Clean the fluff filter thoroughly.
After cleaning
Pour approx. 2 litres of water into the
detergent dispenser compartment
j to reactivate the ball valve.
Remove any foreign objects (e.g.
buttons, coins, etc) and fluff. Turn
the impeller by hand to check that it
is free to rotate. Any foreign object
causing an obstruction should be reremoved.

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.

Installation and connection
Installation surface
Installing the washing machine
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.
To manoeuvre the machine out of its
packing case to its installlation site hold
it by the edge of the lid where it protrudes to the rear of the washing machine as well as by the handle recesses at the front.
Please note the following points:
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:
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.
Please note:
Do not lift the machine by the drum
door.
Ensure that the machine feet and
the floor are dry to prevent the machine from slipping during the spin
cycle.
Removing the transit fittings
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).
To remove the left and right covers
1. Use a screwdriver to prise out the
cover as illustrated.
2. Pull the cover forwards to remove.

Installation and connection
The washing machine must not be
moved without the transit bars in
place.
Store the transit bars 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.
Fit the covers on to the two holes.
Then plug the holes as shown with
the caps.
Secure the transit bars to the back of
the washing machine. Make sure
that holes E are fitted over retainers
D.
55
Installation and connection
Levelling the machine
The machine must stand perfectly level
on all four feet to ensure safe and
proper operation.
Loosen counter nut 2 with a spanner
by turning it anti-clockwise, then turn
foot 1 together with the counternut
and unscrew.
Put the machine back on all four feet.
Use a spirit level to check the machine is standing level.
Incorrect installation may increase electricity and water consumption and may
cause the machine to move about.
The four adjustable screw feet are
used to level the machine. All four feet
are screwed in when the machine is delivered.
Screwing out and adjusting the feet
Gently tip the machine and prop it
up using a solid wood wedge for
example, to ensure stability.
Make sure the machine does not
slip as this could cause injury.
56
Hold the foot 1 firm using a pipe
wrench and using a spanner turn the
counternut 2 to the right 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.
Installation and connection
Building under a continuous worktop / in a kitchen run
– A special building under conversion
kit* is required.
The machine lid must be replaced
by a cover plate. To ensure electrical
safety the cover plate must be fitted.
**
Washer and Dryer stack
A Miele tumble dryer can be stacked
with the washing machine. A stacking
kit* is necessary and can be purchased from the Miele Spare Parts

Installation and connection
Connection to the water supply Fitting the Waterproof system
The Waterproof system
Function
At the heart of this leak protection system there is an electric safety valve,
which works like an automatic stopcock.
The Miele Waterproof system protects from water damage in the following cases:
– Protection in the event of a leaking
machine.
Any leaking water is collected in a
sump in the base of the appliance. A
float switch switches off the safety
valve electrically, no more water will
flow into the machine. Water in the
suds container is pumped away.
– Protection in the event of a leaking
water inlet hose.
Leaking water is fed into the sump
through the protective covering
which surrounds the inlet hose as a
“second skin”. The float switch switches off the water supply.
The machine should be connected to a
mains water supply in accordance with
standard regulations. The German authorities do not require it to have a non-return valve as the washing machine has
been designed to comply with DVGW
regulations (German Association of
Gas and Water Engineers, see data
plate).
The machine is designed to operate
with a minimum flow pressure of 1 bar.
There is a minimum flow pressure of 1
bar if 5 litres of water flow into a suitable container in 15 seconds.
The static water pressure must not exceed 10 bar. If it is higher than 10 bar it
is essential to fit a reducer 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 to
mains water pressure. Turn on the
stopcock slowly and check for
leaks. Correct the position of the
washer and union if appropriate.
This appliance is not suitable for
connection to hot water.
58
Installation and connection
The plastic casing of the water connection contains an electric component. 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 protective sleeve of the hose
must not be damaged.
Do not dip into any liquid.
59
Installation and connection
Maintenance
If you intend to unscrew the Waterproof
system unit from the mains water supply it is essential that the machine is
first disconnected from the electricity
supply.
Only use a Miele Waterproof system
should you ever need a replacement or
extension. These are tested to withstand pressure of at least 70 bar.
In order to protect the water inlet
valves the dirt filter in the solenoid
safety valve connection must not be
removed.
Accessories
Should the distance between the inlet
and the machine be greater than 1.5
metres, 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 140 bar and can be used
as a flexible extension to the water supply.
60
Installation and connection
Connection to the drainage
system
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre*.
The drain hose is 1.5 m long. It 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.
* For a delivery head of more than 1 m
(up to a maximum of 1.8 m) a second
duo-drain pump is available with the
corresponding kit from the Miele Spare
Parts Department or your Miele Dealer.
Drain hose connection:
Direct into a sink: Hook the hose
over the edge and secure. Make
sure that the water can flow freely to
avoid flooding and to prevent water
from being sucked back into the machine.
Connected to a floor gully.
Connected to a standpipe.
Connected to a plastic drain pipe
with a rubber nipple. There is no
need to use a non-return valve.
If required, the drain hose can be extended to a length of 5 m. The necessary parts can be purchased from the
Miele Spare Parts Department or your
Miele dealer.
