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.
Do not let small children play with
the machine and its controls or
operate it. Please supervise its use by
the elderly or infirm.
Technical safety
Check for visible external damage
before installation.
Do not install or operate a damaged
machine or appliance.
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.
In the event of a fault, or for cleaning purposes, the machine is only
completely isolated from the electricity
supply when:
– the plug is withdrawn, or
– it is switched off at the mains, or
– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
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;
– are soiled with grease or oil.
Warning and safety instructions
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.
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.

Brief instructions
Brief instructions
Brief description
Programmes are selected by turning
the programme selector and can be
supplemented by pressing the additional option buttons.
Press the “START” button to begin a
programme.
The indicator lights in the sequence display (on the right hand side of the control panel) show which stage has been
reached in the programme.
The Sensitive system automatically adjusts drying to suit the water quality
and ensure more precise results.
The Novotronic controls measure and
register the conductivity of the water
and compensate for variations to achieve a uniform residual moisture level.
The automatic reversing action turns
the drum clockwise and anti-clockwise
to loosen the laundry and prevent uneven drying, ensuring good results.
Once the required degree of dryness is
achieved, the laundry is allowed to cool
down.
At the end of the programme the anticrease action period begins. The drum
turns intermittently to reduce the formation of creases and folds.
Programmable functions can be used
to select or de-select some of the additional options and introduce further functions. These combinations can be stored in the machine’s memory and
called up.

Please read the sections on “Warning and safety” and “Notes on
laundry care”.
1 Switching the machine on and
loading the laundry
Switch on by pressing the “I-On/0Off” button.
Press the “Door” button to open the
door.
Place the laundry loosely in the drum.
Swing the door shut but do not slam
it. Do not push on the door to shut it.

4 Starting the programme
Press the “START” button.
Notes on laundry care
Notes on laundry care
Before drying, check the drying symbol on the textile care label.
Significance of symbols:
q = Dry at normal temperature
r = Dry at low temperature
– Pure linen*
These items should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the manufacturer on the textile care label, as
the surface of the fabric may otherwise
“roughen”.
(also push in the “Low temperature” * Linen and down-filled items can, however, be partially dried using the
button if required)
“Smoothing” programme.
s = Do not tumble dry
t = Can be tumble dried
Notes:
If no symbol is featured, dry at your own
risk applying the following principles:
Cotton and minimum iron items should
be dried in the appropriate programme
(see programme charts).
For delicate fabrics, eg acrylic, select
"Minimum iron" and also press the "Low
temperature" button.
Never overload the drum. Always
observe the maximum recommended loads given in the “Programme
chart”. Overloading can cause unnecessary wear and tear to the
laundry, give a disappointing drying
result and cause more creasing.
The following fabrics should not be
dried in a tumble dryer:
– Woollens and wool blends
These fabrics tend to become matted
and shrink. These fabrics can, however,
be partially dried using the “Woollens
hand care” programme.
– Down-filled items*
The fine fabric interior tends to shrink,
depending on the quality.
Some woven and loopknit materials
(eg T-shirts, cotton jersey material)
have a tendency to shrink, depending
on their quality, and this is often made
worse by over-drying. When purchasing woven materials, it is advisable to
take their shrinkage properties into account.
Starched washing can be dried in the
tumble dryer. In order to achieve the
usual finish, double the amount of
starch should be used.
Minimum iron fabrics and 100% cotton
shirts or blouses tend to crease more,
when larger loads being dried, particulary when the weave of the fabric is
very fine. Reduce the load or use the
Special care “Minimum iron – Hand
iron” programme. If this is unsatisfactory use the “Smoothing” setting,
then hang the garments on a hanger to
dry.
New dark-coloured fabrics should be
dried separately from light-coloured
fabrics to avoid colours running.

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.

Installation
Installation
The ventilation slots beneath the
door must on no account be
blocked as this will prevent a sufficient intake of cold air.
Installation
Building under a continuous worktop/in a row of kitchen units
The machine must be perfectly level to
ensure safe and proper operation.
Minor differences do not, however,
have an adverse effect on operation.
A special conversion kit* is necessary.
– The machine lid is replaced by a coverplate which must be fitted by a
suitable competent person to ensure
electrical safety.
– When installing under a worktop with
a working height of 900/910 mm, a
spacer kit* is necessary.
When built under, the running times
may be longer.
The tumble dryer can also be combined with a Miele washing machine in
a washer and dryer stack. For this purpose the appropriate stacking kit* to
match your washing machine is required.
*These items are available from your Miele dealer.
(N.B. If you wish to push your machine
under a worktop and there is space to
do this without removing the lid, the
conversion kit is not necessary. Otherwise the conversion kit is essential).
The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any uneveness in
the floor surface.
31
Installation
External condensed water outlet
The condensed water can be drained off
directly if the machine is installed near a
sink, drain outlet etc.
