IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation, repair and maintenance work
should be performed by a Miele
authorized service technician. Work by
unqualified persons could be dangerous
and may void the warranty.
Read all instructions before installation or
use of the tumble dryer to prevent injury
and machine damage.
All personnel working with this machine
must be fully trained in all aspects of its
use and safety.
The tumble dryer is only intended for
drying fabrics washed in a water solution.
Check fabric care labels to verify
materials can be machine dried.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND
REVIEW THEM PERIODICALLY
To prevent fires, do not use this
tumble dryer to dry the following:
– Articles containing foam rubber, rubber or
rubber like materials.
– Articles which have been treated with
flammable cleaning agents.
– Articles which have been splashed with
hair spray, nail polish remover, etc.
– Clothing which may be greasy, oily or
saturated with other residues.
Do not dry mops, floor cloths, etc. in this
machine if they contain substances such
as wax or chemical cleaning agents.
Padded or filled fabrics (e.g. jackets or
cushions) that are damaged should not
be dried. Loose filling could catch fire.
Some fabrics get very hot during drying
and there may be a risk of high
temperatures causing them to ignite in
extreme circumstances. They should be
taken out of the machine as soon as the
program has finished and as soon as
possible if there has been a power failure. It
is advisable to keep a fire extinguisher near
the machine at all times.
Laundry must not be removed from the
dryer before the drying program has
finished, i.e., the cooling down phase must
be completed.
If hot laundry items are stacked or packed
they may spontaneously combust.
Do not let children play in or near the
machine. Do not let them play with the
controls or operate the unit.
Make sure the drum is stationary before
removing laundry. Never put your hand
into a drum that is still moving.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Use the dryer only if all housing parts are
installed and no hazard of electrical or
moving parts exists.
The air intake opening is located to the
rear of the machine. Do not cover the
opening under any circumstances.
Fire and Explosion hazard
Never use or store gas, gasoline based
substances or any easily flammable
substances near the machine.
Fire hazard
Do not use the machine without the lint
filter in place. If the lint filter is damaged it
must be replaced immediately.
Clean the lint filter regularly. A build up of
lint could block the airflow, heating and
ventilation. This may impair the efficiency of
the machine.
Keep the area around the air intake
(toekick) and adjacent surrounding areas
free from lint, dust and dirt.
Ensure that there is adequate ventilation
for operation in the room where it is
installed.
Do not use a high-pressure cleaner or
water jet to clean the machine.
Caution
If the tumble dryer shuts off during the
drying cycle, without a fault indicator
lighting, a temperature limiter has activated.
Check the seals and locks on the machine
door and the lint filter.
Check the condition of the air inlet and air
outlet vents. If no damage is evident to any
of the parts checked, the dryer can be
restarted.
If the fault occurs again, call the Miele
Technical Service Department.
KEEP THESE OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS IN A SAFE PLACE
Disinfecting and cleaning agents often
contain chlorides (salts) that can cause
steel surfaces to rust. To protect your
machine from rust damage, only use
chloride free disinfecting and cleaning
agents for laundry, disinfection and cleaning
of the machine. If you are not sure about a
particular agent contact Miele’s Professional
Division.
If you accidentally spill an agent containing
chloride on the machine it should be rinsed
off with water and dried with a soft cloth.
If there is any damage to the controls or
to the cable insulation, the machine must
not be used until it has been repaired.
Ensure that only fresh air is drawn into
the machine and that it does not contain
chlorine, fluoride or solvent fumes.

for even drying results.
Not all fabrics are suitable for drying. Check
the manufacturer’s instructions on the wash
care label.
q = Dry at normal temperature
r = Dry at low temperature
s = Do not tumble dry
– Do not tumble dry articles made from pure
wool and wool mixtures, they tend to
become matted and shrink.
– Pure linen may become rough by tumble
drying. Consult the manufacturer’s
instructions before drying.
– Important: Items with metal buckles,
hooks, eyes, zippers etc. should be put
into the dryer in a cloth bag (e.g.
pillowcase) to protect the drum from
scratches and dents.
– Items with zippers should be dried with
the zippers open.
– Some woven and loop knit materials shrink
with over-drying. Avoid the "Extra dry"
program for such fabrics.
– Pillow cases and duvet covers should be
fastened, if possible, to avoid smaller
items getting entangled.
– If drying starched laundry, select the most
suitable program for ironing by hand or
machine.
– Sort the laundry according to the level of
dryness required. It is not necessary to
sort according to size.
– For cost efficiency, only dry full loads. Do
not overload the dryer.

Installation instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation and Repair
Any repair or installation work is to be
done by a Miele Service Technician. Any
work done by an unauthorized person could
be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be
held responsible for unauthorized repairs.
Pay close attention to the installation
instructions and the installation diagram.
Be certain your appliance is properly
installed and grounded by a qualified
technician.
To guarantee the electrical safety of this
appliance, continuity must exist between
the appliance and an effective grounding
system. It is imperative that this basic safety
requirement be met. If there is any doubt,
have the electrical system of the house
checked by a qualified electrician. The
manufacturer cannot be held responsible for
damages caused by the lack, or inadequacy
of, an effective grounding system.
Electrically heated dryers must not be
installed in the same room as dry
cleaning machines using solvents containing
CFCs. Escaping fumes will break down into
hydrochloric acid if ignited. This will damage
the machine.
If installed in an adjacent room there must
be no exchange of air between them.
The exhaust must not be led into a
chimney used by another gas, coal or oil
heated appliance. The warm humid air
should be directed by the shortest route into
the open air or into a suitable venting duct.
The duct must be designed and installed to
accommodate the high throughput of air
(few bends, as short a duct as possible, well
shaped and leakproof joints).
No filters or louvres should be built into
the exhaust duct.
The connection between the exhaust
ducting and the exhaust connection on
the dryer must be airtight.
Before installation or service, disconnect
the power supply to the work area by
removing the fuse or "tripping" the circuit
breaker to the unit.
Where the exhaust is ducted directly into
the open air, the end of the duct should
be protected against the weather, ideally by
a downward angle of 90°.
Do not damage, remove or bypass the
safety components, fixtures and control
elements of this machine.
To facilitate cleaning of the duct,
cleaning flaps or covers should be fitted
on the bends wherever possible.
Faulty components must only be
exchanged for Miele original spare parts.
Only when these parts are fitted can the
safety standards of the machine be
guaranteed.
With upward sloping exhaust ducting a
condensation drain must be made at the
lowest point.
Disposal of an old appliance
When disposing of an old machine,
prevent hazards to children by removing the
drum door and the lint filter access panel.
Disconnect the power supply and remove
the power cord.
Do not install the dryer in a room where
there is danger of frost.
Ensure that there is adequate ventilation
for operation in the room where it is
installed.
16
The dryer is fitted with an exhaust fan
which can be heard during operation.
The noise level of the fan can be reduced by
fitting a muffler to the end of the dryer vent
(available from Miele’s Technical Service
Department).
The minimum dimensions and distance
required from the wall, as shown in the
installation diagram, must be observed to
allow service to be performed.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of packing material
Disposal of an old machine
The transport and protective packing are
environmentally friendly for disposal and can
be recycled.
Old machines contain materials which can
be recycled. Please contact your local
recycling authority about the possibility of
recycling these materials.
Please recycle.
