Too little detergent may cause:
– laundry to not be cleaned effectively
and become gray and stiff over time.
– grease to not be completely washed
from the laundry.
– calcium deposits on the heater.
Too much detergent may cause:
– oversudsing with poor wash, rinse
and spin results.
– a higher water usage, because of an
extra rinse which is automatically
added
– a higher environmental burden.

use a descaling agent with corrosion
protection. These special descaling
agents can be purchased from Miele.
Use as directed on the packaging.
Cleaning the detergent drawer
^ Clean the exterior of the washer with
a mild solution of non-abrasive
detergent or soap and water, and
wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ Clean the drum with a stainless steel
cleaner specially formulated for use
in a washing machine, available from
Mile.
,Do not use chemical solvents,
abrasive cleaners, glass or all
purpose cleaners!
They will damage the surface.
Cleaning the drum
Miele suggests running a
"maintenance cycle" approx. once a
month to ensure that your washing
machine remains clean and free of any
soil buildup or odors.

Installation
Installation site
Installation
A concrete floor is the most suitable
surface for the washer. Concrete floors
are less prone to vibration during the
spin cycle than wooden floors.
Use the front washer feet and the rear
excess end to transport the washer
from its shipping pallet to the
installation site.
Do not lift the washer by the drum
door!
Note:
– The machine must be leveled and
securely positioned.
– To avoid vibration while spinning, the
machine should not be installed on
soft floor coverings.
,Ensure that the machine’s feet
and the floor are dry to prevent
slippage during the spin cycle.
Removing the shipping struts
If the installation must be performed on
a wooden floor:
^ Install the unit on a
2 ft. x 2 ft. x 1 3/16"
(61 x 61 x 3 cm) plywood base.
Ideally the base should be large
enough to span several joists and
should be anchored to the joists and
not just the floor boards.
It is best to install the washer in the
corner of a room, where the stability of
the floor is at its greatest.
,If the machine is installed on a
raised platform, it should be secured
with retaining clips. These clips are
available from your dealer or Miele.
If installed on a masonry or concrete
base, the base should have a ½" to
3
/4" (12-20 mm) high rim. This is
required to prevent the washer from
vibrating off the stand during the
spin cycle.
42
^ Remove the left and right rotary
protectors. Unhook, 1, the rotary
protectors with a screw driver and
remove, 2.
Installation
^ Turn the left shipping strut
counterclockwise 90° with the
enclosed combination wrench.
^ Turn the right shipping strut
clockwise 90° with the enclosed
combination wrench.
^ Pull out the shipping strut.
^ Pull out the shipping strut.
43
Installation
Installing the shipping struts
^ Reinstall the struts by reversing the
"Removing the shipping struts"
procedure.
^ Close the holes with the rotary
protectors, making sure to close the
caps.
^ Fasten the shipping struts to the rear
of the washer. Take care to insert the
drill holes correctly, b, into the
clamps, a.
,Do not move the washer without
the shipping struts in place.
44
Installation
Leveling the washer
To ensure smooth operation the washer
must be level.
Failure to level the machine can result
in increased water and energy
consumption as well as the washer
"banging" in the spin cycle or "walking"
across the floor during use.
Adjust the four leveling feet
The washer is leveled by adjusting the
four feet. The machine is boxed with the
feet completely screwed in.
^ Turn the locking ring, 2, counterclockwise with the enclosed
combination wrench. Unscrew the
each of the for feet as much as
needed by turning both the foot, 1,
and locking ring, 2, to the left.
^ Check that the machine stands level.
^ Once level, hold the foot, 1, immobile
with a wrench. Turn the locking ring,
2, with the combination wrench
towards the machine.
,All four locking rings must be
tight against the bottom of the
machine. In addition, check to see
that the feet were not inadvertently
unscrewed while tightening the
rings. Running a machine that is not
level or whose feet are not tight may
cause damage to both the machine
and its surrounding area.

Installation
Installing the decor panel
The door can be fitted with a
customized door panel (optional
accessory) to match the adjacent
cabinets.
Decor panel measures :
Width 23 1/4" (591 mm)

Installation
Installation beneath a counter
If a countertop is placed over the
washer, at least a 1/4" gap must be
left between the top of the machine
and bottom of the countertop;
nothing should be within ½" of any
side of the washing machine.
The niche height should be 32 5/16" to
36 5/8" (820 - 930 mm).
Depending on your niche height some
adjustments may need to be made :

– When the machine lid needs to be
removed to reduce the height of the
machine, a countertop kit* is
necessary. The cover plate in the
countertop kit replaces the machine
lid and ensures electrical safety.
– Water intake, drain and electrical
connections should be installed near
the machine and be easily accessible.
An installation manual is supplied with
the countertop kit.

Plumbing
The washing machine can be
connected to a portable water supply.
A non-return valve is not needed unless
required by building code.
The washing machine has ½" (13 mm)
pressure hoses with 3/4" (19 mm) female
hose thread connections. If there is no
water hookup, contact a plumber to
install a connection. Make sure that the
sealing ring is seated properly on the
hose connector.
Replace the hose only with a genuine
Miele hose, or with a hose able to
withstand up to 145 psi (10 bar)
pressure. The water valve connector
must also be able to withstand 145 psi
(10 bar).
50
,The bolted connection is under
water pressure. Open the water
supply slowly to check for leaks.
Adjust the rubber seal and the
bolted connection if necessary.
To protect the inlet valve, the two
filters (one at the pressure hose /
valve connection and one at the inlet
connection to the solenoid valve)
must not be removed.
Hose extension (optional accessory)
Hose extensions with a length of
8’ 2 7/16" to 13’ 1 ½" (2.5 to 4 m) are
available from your Miele dealer or
Miele.

Water connection
Tips for a hot water connection
^ Connect the cold water intake hose
(blue mark) to the cold water valve
and the hot water intake hose (red
mark) to the hot water valve.
The hot water temperature from the hot
water valve must not exceed 140°F
(60°C); the ideal temperature is 130°F
(55°C).
If the machine is being connected only
to a cold water supply, both the hot and
cold water intake hoses must be
attached to the cold water valve
through the use of a Y adapter
(available at a hardware store). Both
hoses must be connected to a water
source or the machine will not function
properly.
If there is no water pressure at the hot
water inlet, the unit will automatically
switch to cold water after several
minutes.
Do not connect the washer to hot
water only.
^ Turn on the valve(s) and check for
leaks. The water pressure must be
within 15 -145 psi (1 -10 bar). If the
water pressure is greater that 145 psi
(10 bar) a pressure reducer must be
installed. If the water pressure is
below 15 psi (1 bar) there will not be
enough water available for a
complete fill.
The water intake hoses are equipped
with screen filters. Do not remove these
filters except for cleaning.

Plumbing
Drainage
The 5 foot (1.5 m) drain hose may be
connected as follows:
1. Directly into a sink: hook the hose
over the edge of the sink and secure
it firmly (e.g. by tying the hose to the
water faucet).
2. To a stand pipe: place the drain
hose into a 1 ½" (4 cm) stand pipe
and secure it firmly.
3. To a floor drain: The machine is
equipped with an air gap /
anti-siphoning system so that no
minimum drain height is required.
52
^ The machine drains using a pump
with a maximum delivery height of
4 feet (1.2 m).
^ Make sure there are no kinks in the
drain hose.
If desired, the drain hose may be
extended to run a maximum of 16 feet
(4.9 m), as long as the 4 foot (1.2 m)
height is not exceeded. Hose
extensions are available from your
Miele dealer or Miele.
