6
Disposal of your old
machine/appliance
Old machines/appliances contain materials which can be recycled. Please
contact your dealer, your local waste
collection centre or scrap merchant
about potential recycling schemes. Ensure that the machine/appliance presents no danger to children while being

instructions.
Warning and safety instructions
Warning and safety instructions
Please read the operating instructions before using the tumble dryer
for the first time. They contain important information about the safety,
use and maintenance of the
machine. This 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 owners of the machine.
Correct usage
The tumble dryer is only intended
for drying fabrics which have been
washed in a water solution and are
marked on the manufacturer’s wash
care label as being suitable for tumble
drying.
Any other applications may be dangerous. The manufacturer is not liable
for damage resulting from improper
use or operation.
Before connecting the machine, ensure that the connection data on
the data plate (fusing, voltage and frequency) matches the mains electricity
supply. If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
The electrical safety of this machine can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance 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.
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.
Do not let small children play with
the machine and its controls or
operate it. Please supervise its use by
the elderly or infirm.
In the event of a fault, or for cleaning purposes, the machine is only
completely isolated from the electricity
supply when:
Technical safety
– the plug is withdrawn, or
– it is switched off at the mains, or
– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
Check for visible external damage
before installation.
Do not install or operate a damaged
machine or appliance.
7
Warning and safety instructions
For safety reasons, do not use an extension cable. There is a danger of
overheating.
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.
Use
Do not install the machine in a
room where the temperature may
drop below freezing, as temperatures
below zero could damage the machine.
Frozen condensed water in the pump,
hose and condensed water container
could also lead to damage.
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.
8
Condensed water is not drinking
water. It can cause health problems in people and animals.
Always close the door after use to
avoid the danger of:
– someone leaning on the door which
could cause the machine to tip;
– children climbing into the machine or
hiding objects in it.
There is a danger of fire with fabrics which:
– contain rubber, foam rubber or rubber-like materials;
– have been treated with inflammable
cleaning agents;
– have been splashed with hair lacquer, hair spray, nail varnish remover
or similar;
– also padded items (eg cushions,
jackets) which have been damaged,
as the padding could fall out and
catch fire.
Warning and safety instructions
Using 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.
Disposing of your old machine
Before discarding an old machine,
unplug it and render the plug useless. Cut off the cable directly behind
the appliance to prevent misuse.
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.

Brief instructions
Brief instructions
Brief description
When the machine is switched on, the
indicator lights for all programmes will
come on. Programmes are selected by
pressing the appropriate button and
can be supplemented by pressing the
additional option buttons. The indicator
lights show which programmes/options
have been selected and the lights for

Hints on saving energy
Make sure that your laundry has
been thoroughly spun at the highest
appropriate spin speed before
drying. Spinning at 1600 rpm, for
example, saves approximately 30%
energy and time compared with 800
rpm.
Load the full amount of laundry according to the programme chosen
(see “Programme chart”) for the
most economical drying related to
the size of the load. Make sure that
the drum is not over- or underloaded.
Make sure there is no washing
detergent dispenser among the
laundry, as this could melt and damage the machine and the laundry.
Load the laundry very loosely into
the drum.
Do not overload the drum. Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry and
give a disappointing drying result.
Shut the door with a light swing but
do not slam it. Do not push on the
door to shut it.
As far as possible, sort fabrics for:
– the type of fibre or weave
– the degree of drying required
– similar size of items
– the moisture content after spinning.
This will help towards an even drying
result.
Ensure the room is well ventilated.
1Switching on and loading
Fasten duvet covers etc to prevent
small items from being rolled up inside them.
Do up zips and tie fabric belts and
apron strings.
Press the “l-On / 0-Off” button.
Press the “Door” button and open
the door.
12
Important: Please check that items
of laundry cannot be trapped by the
door, as this will cause damage to
the fabric.

Display
Display
Various pieces of information are
shown in the display:
- the length of time a programme still
has to run (time left);
- the length of programme selected
for timed drying;
- the number of hours selected for the
delay start option;
- programmable functions as they are
switched on or off.
Time left indicator
Once a programme has started, the
electronics calculate how long the programme will last and the following symbols: === ... -== ... appear in the display.
After approximately a minute the length
of the programme will appear and a
countdown in minutes will commence.
The time left can vary with each programme because it is dependent on
several factors:
– the quantity, type and residual moisture of the various items in the load;
– variations in electrical current;
– the surrounding temperature.
The time left should therefore only be
regarded as an estimate. However, to
make this estimate as precise as
possible, the machine has intelligent
electronics that are capable of “learning”. During the first 10-15 programmes
run in the machine, the electronics will
monitor your individual laundry items
and adapt accordingly.
18
Each load should ideally be made
up of items of the same size. The
time left will vary more if items are of
very different sizes. In this case the
time may stop counting down
shortly before the end of the programme, (see the "Problem solving
guide").
Delay start
Delay start
Once a programme has been selected, the start can be delayed from
30 minutes (30) up to 24 hours (24h).
Select a programme.
To cancel delayed start
Press the “Delay start” button;
or, if the “START” button has already
been pressed:
switch the machine off using the
“I-On/0-Off” button.
Press the “Delay start” button.
Press the > button repeatedly until
the required time appears in the display:
– up to i0h in 30 minute stages;
– from i0h to 24h in 1 hour stages.
To reduce the length of time, press
the $ button.
Press the “START” button.
The chosen time will be counted down:
– from 24h to i0h in 1 hour stages;
– less than i0h in 1 minute stages.
Approximately 1 minute after the programme starts the time left will appear
in the display.

Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the fluff filters
The fluff which is created by the drying
process is collected in the fluff filters in
the door and door opening.
Clean the filters after every programme to reduce drying time and
save energy.
These filters should only be removed
for cleaning with water.
Dry the filters well after rinsing and
put back in place.
Cleaning the tumble dryer
Open the door. Grip the filter by the
recessed handle and pull upwards
to remove.
Remove the fluff from:
– the filter in the door
– the filters in the door opening
Do not use any sharp or pointed objects.
Remove any fluff from the hollow part
of the door holder through the wide slit
at the bottom. A cleaning brush is
available at extra cost from the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
Push the cleaned filter back into the
door holder and close the door.
If there is a great deal of compacted fluff
on the filters, they can be cleaned under
hot running water.
24
Disconnect the machine from the
power supply.
Clean . . .
. . . the housing and control panel:
with a mild detergent or soapy water;
. . . the drum and other stainless
steel parts: with a suitable proprietary stainless steel cleaner following
the manufacturer’s instructions.
Never use abrasive substances,
scouring pads, glass or general purpose cleaners. These could damage
plastic surfaces and other parts.
The machine must never be hosed
down.
Dry all parts with a soft cloth.
Cleaning and care
Emptying the condensed
water container
If the hose drain has not been fitted
and connected, the condensed water
will be collected in the condensed
water container.
The condensed water container
should be emptied after every
drying cycle, or as soon as the
“Empty out container” indicator light
comes on.
If . . .
. . . the condensed water container is
full when a programme is started or
. . . it becomes full during a drying cycle:
– the “Empty out container” light will
come on,
– the buzzer will sound,
– the programme will be stopped,
– the washing will be cooled down and
the “Cool air” light will come on.
Slide back the cap and pour the
water away.
Push the container back into the machine until it engages into place.
Condensed water should not be
drunk. It could lead to health problems for humans and animals.
Condensed water can be put to household use, eg used in a steam iron or humidifier.
Note:
To ensure that no particles of fluff are
left which could damage the appliance, pass the condensed water
through a fine sieve or paper filter.
Pull the container out of the machine,
gripping it firmly with both hands.
25
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the condenser unit
The machine must be disconnected
from the electricity supply before
cleaning.
The condenser unit should be
cleaned at least four times a year.
Pull the cover off.
Open the door.
Turn the cover lock downwards to
the vertical position.
Turn both levers on the condenser
unit to the vertical position.
26
Cleaning and care
Pull the condenser unit out.

Electrical appliances should only be repaired by qualified personnel. Incorrectly repaired machines may pose a considerable risk to the user.
What to do if . . .
Cause . . .
Remedy . . .
. . . the tumble dryer fails to
start when switched on
This may be due to an incorrect
selection procedure sequence
when switching on the machine.
Repeat the switch-on procedure
(see section on “Drying
correctly”). Also check the
following:
– Is the machine plugged in at
the mains switch?
– Is the door closed properly?
– Was the “”I-On/0-Off” button
pushed in?
– Was the “START” button
pushed in?
– Has the delay start been
–
activated? The programme
will start once the time delay
has expired.
Has the fuse or circuit
breaker tripped? If so,
contact the Miele Service
Department.
Static charge can be reduced
by adding a fabric conditioner
for the final rinse in the washing
machine.
. . . items made of synthetic
fibres are charged with static
electricity after drying
. . . the laundry is not sufficiently dry
The load consists of different
fabrics.
. . . there is a build-up of fluff
Fluff is principally the result of friction when garments are being
worn and washed. Machine drying hardly causes any fluff to form
and, as has been established by research institutes, has no effect
on the lifetime of fabric.

Select a more suitable drying
programme next time.
Problem solving guide
What to do if . . .
. . . the drying process goes
on too long.
Cause . . .
Ventilation to and from the dryer
is insufficient (eg in a small
room). This could cause the
room temperature to rise sharply.
Remedy . . .
Open a door or window while
the machine is in operation for
increased air flow.
The vent below the door is
blocked.
Remove any objects that are
blocking the vent below the
door.
– Clean the fluff filters in the
door and the door opening.
The dryer cannot blow air out
correctly.
– Clean the condenser unit.
The laundry was not sufficiently
spun.
Spin the laundry in the washing
machine at the highest possible
spin speed.
. . . water droplets appear at
the upper edge of the drum
aperture.
A double filter system with dual
insulation prevents fluff from
being deposited in the
condenser unit. This insulation
can lead to a build-up of
