Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally 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!
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Disposal of your old appliance
Old appliances contain materials which
can be reclaimed or recycled. Please
contact your dealer, your local waste
collection centre or scrap merchant
about potential recycling schemes.
Ensure that the machine presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
Before throwing an old appliance
away unplug it and render the plug
useless. Cut off the cable directly
behind the appliance to prevent
misuse. This should be done by a
competent person.

Energy saving tips
^ Make sure that your laundry is
thoroughly spun before drying.
The higher the spin, the greater the
savings that can be made in energy
and time during drying.
^ Load according to the optimum
amount of laundry recommended for
the programme being used (see
Programme chart).
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives a poorer quality of
drying and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
^ To save energy and time:
– make sure the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
– Make sure the fluff filters are clean
before using the dryer.

Warning and Safety instructions
Read the operating instructions
carefully before using this appliance
for the first time. They contain
important information about the
safety, use and maintenance of the
appliance. This way you will avoid
the risk of accidents and damage to
the appliance.
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 use
The tumble dryer is only intended
for drying fabrics which have been
washed in a water solution, marked on
the manufacturer's wash care label as
being suitable for tumble drying.
"Dry Cleaning Kits" for freshening up
garments in a tumble dryer are
increasingly available on the market. If
using, do so at your own risk and follow
the instructions provided on the
packaging.
Any other applications may be
dangerous. The manufacturer is not
liable for damage resulting from
improper use or operation.
This appliance is not a toy! To avoid the
risk of injury, do not allow children to
play on or near it, or to play with the
controls. 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 or use a
damaged machine.
6
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, 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 machine to the
mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
machine (e.g. danger or 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
liability. Repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele approved
technician.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
appliance while maintenance or repair
work is being carried out.
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.
Warning and Safety instructions
If the connection cable is faulty it
must only be replaced by a Miele
approved service technician to protect
the user from danger.
In the event of a fault or for
cleaning purposes, the machine is
only completely isolated from the
electiricty 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.
Operation
This equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as caravans, aircraft
etc. However it may be suitable for
such usage subject to a risk
assessment of the installation being
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
condensed water is allowed to freeze in
the pump, hoses and / or condensed
water container.
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.
Condensed water is not drinking
water. It can cause health
problems in both people and animals.
Always keep the area around the
machine free of dust and fluff. Dust
drawn into the machine can, over time,
cause blockages in the condenser unit.
The dryer must not be used without
the fluff filters in place or if the fluff
filters are damaged in any way.
The fluff filters must be thoroughly
dried after cleaning. If they are still
damp or wet when replaced there is a
risk of faults occurring when the
machine is used.
The dryer must not be used without
the condenser unit in place.
Do not install the machine in a
room where the temperature may
drop down to or below freezing. At very
cold temperatures the machine may be
difficult to start.
There is a risk of damage if the
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Always close the door after use.
This way you will avoid the danger
of:
– children climbing onto or into the
dryer or hiding things in it.
– pets or other small animals climbing
into it.
Do not let anyone sit or lean on the
door, as this can cause the
machine to start tipping up.
There is danger of fire with fabrics
which:
– contain a large proportion of 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 substances.
– which contain padding or fillings
(e.g. pillows, jackets). If these were
damaged the filling could leak out
with the risk of igniting in the dryer.
– are soiled with oil or grease.
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.

678ö9 . . . . . . . . . . . . Cottons
1234 . Minimum iron/Delicates
– For delicates and fabrics with the
following wash care label r you
should also select the low
temperature extra option.
– Cottons, linens and minimum iron
items should be dried using the
appropriate programme for the
degree of dryness required.
Tips on drying
Always observe the maximum
recommended loads given in the
“Programme chart”. Never overload
the drum. Overloading can cause
unnecessary wear and tear to the
laundry, give a disappointing drying
result and cause more creasing.
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
These garments can be partially
dried using the Smoothing
programme.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the wash care label,
as the surface of the fabric may
otherwise become rough. These
garments can be partially dried
using the Smoothing programme.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Therefore: to prevent
further shrinkage do not over-dry
these textiles. When purchasing
these garments it is advisable to take
their shrinkage properties into
account, and select items one or two
sizes larger.
– Minimum iron fabrics and 100%
cotton shirts or blouses tend to
crease more the greater the load.
This is especially true of very fine
weaves, such as shirts or blouses.
Reduce the load or use the Shirts
programme.
Do not put soaking wet items into
the tumble dryer. Spin them
thoroughly after washing for at least
30 seconds.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can, however,
be partially dried using the Woollens
hand care programme.
– New dark coloured garments should
be dried separately from light
coloured garments to avoid the
danger of colours running.

the fluff filter is correctly positioned in
the door.
– Check seams and stitching to ensure
that padding and linings are intact.
– Fasten duvet covers and pillow
cases to prevent small items from
being trapped inside them.

fabric; size of load; room temperature;
fluctuations in power supply.
The electronics continually assess
conditions in the machine and adjust
the estimated time remaining for a more
accurate reading. Because of this the
time displayed can alter during the
course of a programme.
In the same way, the Woollens
handcare and Smoothing programmes
can finish earlier than expected if a
certain temperature is reached. This
can happen with particularly fine
fabrics or if items were dry beforehand.
– With sensor drying programmes the
drying level reached, e.g. Machine
iron, Hand iron r, etc. will show in
the display.
Once drying is in progress, you can
press short cut:
– Button 2 Timer to call up the current
time of day and the estimated end
time of the programme.
– Button 3 Save to save the current
programme as a favourite.
– Button 4 Cancel to cancel the
current programme.

A message will appear in the display.
^ Open the shutter and empty out the
water.
^ To replace the container, hold it at a
slight angle (as when removing it)
and push it in gently until you feel it
click into position.
^ To remove the message from the
display, switch the dryer off and then
on again.
Condensed water should not be
consumed. It could lead to health
problems for people and animals.
^ Holding the container firmly in both
hands, as shown, pull it out slightly
towards the right-hand side.
^ Hold the container in a horizontal
position when carrying it.
Condensed water can be put to
household use (e.g. used in a steam
iron or humidifier). To ensure that any
residual particles of fluff in the
condensed water are removed before
use, pass it through a fine sieve or
paper filter first.
27
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the fluff filters
The fluff which is created by the drying
process is collected by the fluff filters in
the door and the door opening. Clean
the filters after each drying programme.
Cleaning them whilst dry
^ Open the door and pull the fluff filter
out of the door as illustrated.
^ Remove any fluff from the hollow part
of the door holder. A cleaning brush
is available as an optional extra from
your Miele dealer or the Miele Spare
Parts Department.
Tip: You can also use a vacuum
cleaner.
^ Once clean, push the filter back into
the door holder until it clicks into
position. Ensure it is facing the
correct way.
^ Use your fingers to remove the fluff
from the two fluff filters in the door
opening.
^ Close the door.
^ Use your fingers to remove the fluff
from the surface of the filter.
28
Cleaning and care
Cleaning them with water
If there is a great deal of compacted
fluff on any of the filters, they can be
removed and cleaned under hot
running water.
^ To remove the fluff filter from the door
holder see previous page.
^ Place the filters back in the door
opening (the left and right filters are
identical) with the finger holders
facing upwards. See illustration.
Cleaning the tumble dryer
Disconnect the machine from the
mains electricity supply.
^ Clean the housing and control panel
with a slightly damp cloth and a mild
detergent or soapy water.
^ The drum and other stainless steel
parts can be cleaned with a suitable
proprietary stainless steel cleaner
following the manufacturer's
instructions.
^ Grip the holder and push the filter in
the door opening upwards in the
direction of the arrow to remove it. Do
the same on the opposite filter.
^ Rinse the filters under hot, running
water.
^ Then shake the filters until no more
water droplets are visible.
^ Dry the filters thoroughly with care.
,Do not replace them if they are
damp or wet. Damp or wet filters
could cause operational faults.
Do not use solvents, abrasive
cleaners, glass cleaners or
all-purpose cleaners. These could
damage plastic sufaces and other
parts. The machine must never be
hosed down.
^ Dry all parts with a soft cloth.
^ A microfibre E-Cloth is available from
the Miele UK Spare Parts Department
which is suitable for cleaning
surfaces such as stainless steel,
glass, plastic and chrome without the
use of chemicals. It can be washed
300 times.
^ Push the large filter back into the
door holder until it clicks into position.
Ensure it is facing the correct way.
29
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the condenser unit
Detergent residue, hair and fine fluff
from the dryer can get through the fluff
filters and block the condenser unit.
Dust from the room in which the dryer is
installed can also get into the
condenser unit and cause a blockage.
Check the condenser unit at least
twice a year. If the dryer is used
frequently then clean the condenser
unit after approx. 100 drying cycles.
Removing the condenser unit
^ Turn the lever on the inner cover
downwards to the vertical position.
^ Pull the cover forwards
^ Then remove it by pulling it
diagonally upwards.
^ Open the service panel by pressing
the two lower corners at the same

inside it.
The arrows in the illustration above
indicate where to look.
31
Cleaning and care
Replacing the condenser unit
^ With the handle facing upwards,
push the condenser unit back into
position in its housing.
^ Turn the lever down to the horizontal
position, making sure that the hook
on the lever clicks into the groove.
When replacing the cover after
cleaning, ensure that the rubber seal
fits correctly into the groove.
^ Then flush the unit through from the
front.
^ Check the condenser unit again for
any visible fluff and if necessary flush
it through again until it has all gone.
^ Remove any soiling still visible inside
the housing unit.
^ Also make sure the rubber seals are
clean.
The rubber seals must not be
removed and must be free of kinks.
^ Shake any excess water out of the
unit until no more water droplets are
visible.
32
^ Replace the cover making sure the
hooks locate correctly. Hold it at an
angle and push it gently downwards.
^ Then turn the lever upwards into the
horizontal position to lock the cover.

Room in which the dryer is located
Air taken in for use in the drying
process will be warm when it is
expelled from the rear of the dryer. This
expelled air heats up the air in the
room. It is therefore very important to
ensure that the room is adequately
ventilated, particularly if the dryer is
located in a small room. Otherwise
running times and energy consumption
could be increased.
Transporting the machine to its
installation site
When moving the machine you can
hold it by the lid where it protrudes to
the rear of the dryer.
To manoeuvre the dryer out of its
packing case to its installation site you
will also need to hold it by the front feet.
Aligning the machine
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
,The ventilation gaps in the plinth
must not be covered over as this
would prevent a sufficient intake of
air.
This tumble dryer is not suitable for
building under (due to its sloping
facia).
Before moving the machine again
(e.g. when moving house)
After each use a small quantity of
condensed water will collect in the area
around the pump. This water can run
out if the machine is tipped up when it
is being moved. It is a good idea to run
the Cool air programme for
approximately 1 minute before moving
the machine. Any remaining
condensed water will then be fed into
the condensed water container or out
through the drain hose.
41
Installation
External condensed water
outlet
From the back of the dryer at the
bottom:
When drying is in progress, condensed
water is pumped into the condensed
water container through the drain hose
at the back of the dryer. The
condensed water can also be drained
off directly if the machine is installed
near a sink, drain outlet etc. so that
the condensed water container does
not have to be emptied.
The drain hose (approx. 2 m long) is
stored in the dryer. It must be pulled
out of the dryer to its full extent if
condensed water is to be drained
externally.
Maximum delivery head: 1 m.
If it is not long enough, an extension
hose is available as an optional
accessory through your dealer or from
the Miele Spare Parts Dept.
Pulling out the drain hose
^ Unclip the drain hose from holder (3).
^ Then pull the drain hose completely
out of the dryer towards the left (4)
(See illustration).
,Important: do not let the drain
hose become kinked as this could
damage it.
From the back of the dryer at the top:
,If you want to drain the water off
into a sink you will need to secure
the hose carefully, e.g. by tying it to
a tap to make sure it cannot slip
during use. Otherwise there is a risk
of overflowing water which could
cause damage.
Use the bow-shaped guide to prevent
the drain hose from becoming kinked
(see "Front view" illustration).
^ Unclip the drain hose (1).
^ Then pull it off holder (2).
42
Installation
Connection to a sink drain outlet
The drain hose can be connected
directly to a sink drain outlet.
If this nut has a flat disc sealing it you
should take the disc out first.
Important: if this nut has a washer or
seal in it this must not be removed!
^ Attach the end of the hose to adapter
1.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose
clip 3 up close to the nut.
If you no longer wish to use an
external condensed water outlet:
,Do not push the drain hose
back into the dryer. Doing this could
cause it to become kinked and
damaged in the dryer.
^ Remove the following from the back
of the dryer at the bottom:
Adapter 1 and hose clip 3 behind it.
^ Loop the drain hose up.
^ Use a suitable cable tie to secure the
looped hose to the back of the dryer,
or simply lay the looped hose behind
the dryer.
^ Attach the open end of the drain
hose back onto the holder at the
back of the dryer at the top (see
holder 2 in "Pulling out the drain
hose").
^ Fit adapter 1 to the sink drain outlet
using nut 2.

Electrical connection
Electrical connection U.K.
All electrical work should be carried out
only by a suitably qualified and
competent person, in strict accordance
with national and local safety
regulations.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance while installation work is
being carried out.
The appliance is supplied with a mains
cable with moulded plug for connection
to a 230-240V mains supply. The
voltage, rated load and fuse rating
are given on the data plate. Please
ensure these match the household
mains supply.
Connection should be made via a fused
plug and suitable switched socket
which is easily accessible after
installation.
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a residual current device (RCD), with a
trip current of 30 mA (in accordance
with DIN VDE 0664, VDE 0100, section
739).
Do not connect via an extension lead.
Important
The wires in the mains lead are
coloured in accordance with the

Electrical connection U.K.
Non-rewireable plugs BS 1363
If this machine is fitted with a
non-rewireable plug and the socket
outlets are not suitable for the plug
supplied or if the existing plug needs to
be replaced by a new one, the old plug
will need to be cut off and an
appropriate plug fitted. The fuse carrier
and the fuse should be removed from
the old plug and disposed of.
The plug cut from the cable should then
be disposed of and on no account be
inserted into any socket elsewhere in
the house (electric shock hazard).
The fuse cover must be refitted when
changing the fuse, and if the fuse cover
is lost, the plug must not be used until a
suitable replacement is obtained. The
colour of the correct replacement cover
is that of the coloured insert in the base
of the plug, or the colour that is
embossed in words on the base of the
plug (as applicable to the design of
plug fitted).
Replacement fuses should be ASTA
approved to BS 1362 and have the
correct rating. Replacement fuses and
fuse covers may be purchased from
your local electrical supplier or Service
agent.
