Caring for our environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances /
machines often contain materials
which, if handled or disposed of
incorrectly, could be potentially
hazardous to human health and to the
environment. They are, however,
essential for the correct functioning of
your appliance or machine. Please do
not therefore dispose of your old
machine or appliance with your
household waste.
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.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.

Warning and Safety instructions
This washing machine conforms to
current safety requirements.
Inappropriate use can, however,
lead to personal injury and damage
to property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the washing machine,
please read these instructions
carefully before using it for the first
time. They contain important
information on its installation, safety,
use and maintenance.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and ensure that new users are
familiar with the content. Pass them
on to any future owner.
Correct application
~ Only use the washing machine to
wash items which are specified by the
manufacturer to be machine-washable
on the wash-care label, and textiles
composed of hand-washable wool or
wool blend fabrics as well as satin,
lace, silk and other hand-washable
garments. Any other applications may
be dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for damage
resulting from incorrect or improper use
or operation.
6
~ This washing machine is not
intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities, or lack
of experience and knowledge, unless
they are supervised whilst using it or
have been given instruction concerning
its use by a person responsible for their
safety.
Safety with children
~ Keep children away from the
washing machine at all times. It is not a
toy! To avoid the risk of injury do not
allow children to play on or near it or to
play with its controls. Supervise
children whilst you are using it.
~ Older children may only use the
washing machine if its operation has
been clearly explained to them and
they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
~ For machines with a 'porthole' door,
remember that the porthole glass will
be hot when washing at very high
temperatures.
Do not let children touch it.
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the washing
machine, check it for any externally
visible damage.
Do not install or use a damaged
washing machine.
~ Before connecting the washing
machine, ensure that the connection
data on the data plate (voltage and
connected load) match the mains
electricity supply. If in any doubt,
consult a qualified electrician.
~ The electrical safety of this washing
machine can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between it and
an effective earthing system which
complies with current local and national
safety regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and 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 washing
machine to the mains electricity supply
by an extension lead. Extension leads
do not guarantee the required safety of
the appliance (e.g. danger of
overheating).
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. Only when these parts are
fitted can the safety standards of the
machine be guaranteed.
~ Unauthorised repairs could result in
unforeseen dangers for the user, for
which Miele cannot accept liability.
Repairs should only be undertaken by a
Miele approved service technician.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
machine until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
~ 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 washing machine is only
completely isolated from the electricity
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, or the
screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
~ The Miele "Water protection system"
protects from water damage provided
the following conditions have been met:
– the machine is correctly plumbed in
and connected to the electricity
supply.
– if a fault has been identified, the
machine must be examined by a
competent person before further use,
and repaired if necessary.
~ In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation by
cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
machine 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 machine guarantee.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
~ This washing machine may only be
used in mobile installations such as
ships if a risk assessment of the
installation has been carried out by a
suitably qualified engineer.
Correct use
~ Do not install your washing machine
in rooms where temperatures below
freezing may occur. Frozen hoses may
burst or split. The reliability of the
electronic control unit may be impaired
at temperatures below freezing point.
~ Before using the washing machine
for the first time, check that the transit
bars at the rear of the machine have
been removed (see section on
"Installation"). During spinning, a transit
bar which is still in place may result in
damage to both the machine and
adjacent furniture or appliances.
~ Turn off the stopcock if the machine
is to be left for any length of time (e.g.
holiday), especially if there is no floor
drain (gully) in the immediate vicinity.
~ Flooding danger.
If hooking the drain hose into a wash
basin, check that the water can drain
off quickly enough to prevent the sink
from overflowing. Make sure the drain
hose is secure, so that the force of the
water flowing out of the hose does not
dislodge it.
~ Take care to ensure that foreign
objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins, paper
clips) do not find their way into the
machine with the laundry. These may
damage components of the machine
(e.g. suds container, drum), which in
turn can result in damage to the
laundry.
~ If the correct amount of detergent is
dispensed, the machine should not
need to be descaled. If, however, you
do wish to descale the machine only
use proprietary non-corrosive descaling
agents and strictly observe the
instructions on the packaging. A
special descaling agent is available to
order from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Textiles which have been
pre-treated in solvent based cleaning
agents must be thoroughly rinsed in
clean water before being washed in the
machine.
~ Never use solvent based cleaning
agents, e.g. those containing benzene,
in this machine, as this may result in
damage to component parts and create
toxic fumes. Such agents also pose a
fire and explosion hazard.
~ Never use solvent based cleaning
agents, e.g. those containing benzene,
to clean the outside surfaces of this
machine. They can cause damage to
plastic surfaces.
~ Only use dyes specified by the
manufacturer as being suitable for use
in a domestic washing machine. Always
observe the manufacturer's instructions
carefully.
~ Only remove laundry from the
washing machine once the drum has
stopped turning. Reaching into a
moving drum is extremely dangerous
and could result in injury.
Accessories
~ Accessory parts may only be fitted
when expressly approved by Miele. If
other parts are used, guarantee,
performance and product liability
claims will be invalidated.
Miele cannot be held liable for
damage caused by non-compliance
with these Warning and Safety
instructions.
~ Colour run and dye removers
contain sulphur compounds which can
cause damage such as corrosion. Do
not use these products in this machine.
~ If liquid detergent comes into
contact with the eyes, rinse them
thoroughly with lukewarm water immediately. If swallowed, seek medical
assistance immediately and retain the
packaging or label for reference. Those
with skin problems or sensitive skin
should avoid their skin coming into
contact with liquid detergent.

which measures the amount of laundry
in the drum. This determines the
amount of detergent required. To allow
the load size indicator to function
correctly, you must first run a wash
programme without any laundry and
without detergent.

Washing environmentally and economically
Energy and water consumption
Detergent
– Water consumption and energy
usage are determined by the size of
the load.
To make the most out of your
machine, load the maximum dry load
for the programme you are using.
– Do not exceed the amounts of
detergent recommended by the
manufacturer on the packaging.
– Use the Automatic and Express
programmes for small loads.
– When smaller amounts of laundry are
washed using the Cottons
programme, the automatic load
recognition system will reduce the
amount of water, time and energy
used. This may mean that the time
left shown in the display is adjusted
during the course of the wash
programme.
– Using the Cottons 60°C programme
instead of the Cottons 95°C
programme will give energy savings
of between 35% and 45%. This is
sufficient for most levels of soiling.
For stubborn or old stains, use the
Soak extra option.
– Adjust the dosage to the degree of
soiling of the laundry.
– Reduce the amount of detergent for
smaller loads. Use the Load/
Detergent button.
Choosing the correct Extra option
(Short, Soak, Pre-wash)
Select:
– A wash programme together with the
Short extra option for light to normal
soiling where there are no obvious
marks.
– A wash programme without any extra
options for normal to heavy soiling
with visible staining.
– A wash programme together with the
Soak extra option for heavily soiled
laundry.
– The Pre-wash extra option for laundry
with large amounts of dirt (e.g. dust,
sand).
When drying with a tumble dryer
Selecting the highest possible spin
speed for the wash programme will
save energy when drying in a tumble
dryer afterwards.

How to wash correctly
Brief instructions
The headings numbered A, B, C, . . .
show the operating sequence and can
be used as brief instructions.
A Sort the laundry
,If you use a solvent-based clean-
ing agent (e.g. one containing benzene) to pre-treat a stain, make sure
that any plastic parts (e.g. buttons)
are protected, and that the cleaning
agent is rinsed off before washing the
garment in the machine.
,Do not use solvent-based
cleaning agents in this machine.
^ Sort the laundry by colour and by
care label. Most garments have a
textile care label in the collar or side
seam.
^ Empty all pockets.
,Foreign objects (e.g. nails,
coins, paper clips, etc.) can cause
damage to garments and
components in the machine.
^ Badly soiled areas, stains etc. should
be cleaned as soon as possible,
preferably whilst still fresh. Spillages
should be carefully dabbed off using
a soft colourfast cloth. Do not rub!
Badly soiled areas can be pre-treated
with liquid detergent, stain removers
etc. first, following the manufacturer's
instructions. With particularly stubborn
stains ask your dry cleaner for advice.
16
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately
several times before being included in
a mixed load. Always wash whites and
coloureds separately.
– Curtains: Remove lead weights first
or place in a laundry bag.
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners:
Any loose wiring in bras, shirt collar
stiffeners, etc. should be removed or
sewn in.
– Knitted garments, trousers and
jeans, T-shirts and sweat shirts: Turn
inside out, if recommended by the
manufacturer.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc before washing.
– Fasten duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being rolled up
inside them.
Do not wash any items in this machine
which are specified by the
manufacturer as not washable on the
care label. (h symbol)

The display shows the amount of
laundry loaded in the drum as a % (in
25% steps) of the maximum load
permissible for the programme
selected.
^ Unfold the laundry and load loosely
in the drum. Mixing both large and
small items gives better wash results
and also helps distribute the load
evenly during spinning.
^ Select any extra options by pressing
the appropriate button. The relevant
indicator light will come on to show
which extra option has been
selected.
^ Press the Further extras button to
select the following extra options
(depending on the programme
selected): Soak, Rinse hold and Extra
rinse.
The most efficient use of energy and
water is achieved when a full load is
washed. However, do not overload as
this causes creases and reduces
cleaning efficiency.
Make sure that no garments are
caught between the drum door and
seal.
Not all the extra options are suitable for
use with every programme.
You can only select extra options which
are compatible with the basic

The percentage shown relates to the
amount of detergent recommended by
the manufacturer on the packaging.

= Add slightly less than half
the amount recommended
It is important to dispense the correct
amount because . . .
. . . too little detergent results in:
– Laundry not getting properly clean
and with time it may become grey
and hard to the touch.
– Greasy particles clinging to the
laundry.
– Limescale deposits on the heater
elements.
. . . too much detergent results in:
– Excessive foam which causes a low
level of agitation and poor wash,
rinse and spin results.
50%
= Add half the amount
recommended
60%
= Add slightly more than half
the amount recommended
– High water consumption (an
additional rinse cycle will
automatically switch in).
75%
= Add three quarters of
the amount recommended
– A burden to the environment.

During the first 8 minutes the machine
measures how much water is being
absorbed by the laundry. The
programme duration may be longer or
shorter depending on this absorbency
rate.
The programme sequence is also
shown in the display. The machine lets
you know which section of the
programme has been reached.
The drum lighting switches off once the

Programme sequence
This machine has fully electronic
controls with automatic load
recognition. It takes in the right amount
of water required for the programme
depending on the amount of laundry
and its absorbency rate. This means
that programme cycles and durations
can vary.
The programme sequences outlined in
the chart are based on the basic
programme with a full load. Extra
options which can be selected have not
been taken into account.
The display shows the stage the
programme has reached.
Special features in the programme
sequences:
Anti-crease:
At the end of every programme, with
the exception of the Woollens
programme, the drum continues to turn
at intervals for up to 30 minutes to help
prevent creasing. The door can be
opened and laundry removed at any
time during the anti-crease phase.
1)
Pre-rinse: A pre-rinse without
detergent is carried out automatically
to remove dust.
2)
Run-up to spin: A run-up to spin is
carried out before the wash process
begins to deflate the pillows.
Subsequent water intake for the main
wash is through compartment j.
3)
A second rinse is carried out when a
temperature of 60°C to 95°C has
been selected. A third rinse is
carried out when a temperature
below 60°C is selected.
4)
A third/fourth rinse is carried out if:
– there is too much foam in the drum
– a spin speed lower than 700 rpm has
been selected
– No spin has been selected
5)
A third rinse is carried out if:
No spin has been selected
6)
In the Outerwear programme,
laundry is only spun after the main
wash.

Detergent
The correct detergent
All modern detergents produced for automatic washing machines are suitable.
Use dispensing aids, e.g. balls, if these are supplied with the detergent. Tablets
are suitable for full loads, but note that it may be impractical to reduce tablets for
smaller loads. Some tablets do not dissolve as rapidly as others, and may not be
suitable for programmes with short durations.
Do not use biological detergents on silk as the enzymes may damage the silk!
Instructions for use and recommended dosage amounts are given on the
detergent packaging.
Liquid detergent should be dispensed using a ball provided by the manufacturer
for programmes without a pre-wash.
For programmes with a pre-wash you will need to purchase a special container
from the Miele Spare Parts department which sits in the main wash compartment
j of the detergent dispenser drawer. Add liquid detergent to this container for
the main wash and to compartment i for the pre-wash.

Detergent
The right amount to dispense will
depend on the following:
– The quantity of the laundry
– The soiling level of the laundry
Lightly soiled
No visible dirt or stains. Possibly
slight body odour.
Water softener
A water softener can be used to cut
down on the use of detergents in hard
water areas. Dispense according to the
amount specified on the packaging.
First add detergent and then the water
softener.
Normally soiled
Visibly dirty and/or just a few slight
stains.
Miele branded water softening tablets
are available from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com.
Heavily soiled
Stains and soiling clearly visible.
Use a quantity of detergent as for soft
water.
– The water hardness level.
Check with your local water supplier
if you do not know the hardness level
in your area.
Miele do not recommend connecting
the machine to a household water
softener.
Washing with several
components
If you wash using several components
(e.g. special application detergents),
we recommend always dispensing the
agents into compartment j in the
following order:
1. Detergent
2. Water softener
3. Stain remover
This way the agents are distributed
more evenly.
36
Detergent
Fabric conditioners and liquid
starch
Fabric conditioners make garments soft
to handle and help prevent static cling
when tumble drying.
Starch stiffens and gives body to items
of laundry, e.g. shirts, tablecloths and
bed linen.
Automatic dispensing of fabric
conditioner or liquid starch to
laundry at the end of a programme
If starching frequently, thoroughly
clean the dispenser compartment,
especially the siphon tube and
fabric conditioner channel, regularly.
See "Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer". Do not use
powder starch formulations or
viscious liquid starch in the §
compartment as it will clog up. See
below.
Adding fabric conditioner or starch

used in the dyeing process can
cause corrosion to stainless steel
components in the machine if you
dye frequently. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions carefully.
37
Cleaning and care
,Disconnect the machine from the
mains electricity supply and
withdraw the plug from the socket
before cleaning the machine.
,The washing machine must not
be hosed down.
A range of Miele branded cleaning and
conditioning agents are available to
order from your Miele dealer, the Miele
Spare Parts Department, or via the
internet on www.miele-shop.com
External casing and fascia
panel
Extra cleaning
Carry out a hot wash (70°C or above)
with powder detergent approx. every 6
weeks to help prevent deposits building
up in the machine. These can occur
when washing is mainly done at low
temperatures, and also lead to
unpleasant smells. If you have no
reason to wash occasionally at this high
temperature, then run a Cottons 95°C
programme with detergent but no
laundry at regular intervals.
Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer
Remove detergent residues regularly.
Clean the casing using a Miele E-Cloth,
or with a mild non-abrasive cleaning
agent or soap and water using a well
wrung-out cloth. Wipe dry with a soft
cloth.
^ The drum and any stainless steel
outer panels can be cleaned using a
suitable proprietary stainless-steel
cleaning agent following the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
,Do not use solvents, abrasive
cleaners, glass cleaners or
all-purpose cleaning agents.
These might damage plastic
surfaces and other components
because of the chemicals they
contain.
38
^ Pull out the detergent dispenser
drawer until a resistance is felt. Press
down the release catch and at the
same time pull the drawer right out of
the machine.
^ Clean the detergent drawer with
warm water.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer housing
^ Clean the siphon.
1. Remove the siphon from
compartment § and rinse under
warm running water. Clean the
siphon tube in the same way.
2. Replace the siphon.
If starching frequently, thoroughly
clean the siphon and siphon tube
regularly. A build-up of starch will
cause them to get clogged.
^ Use a bottle brush to remove
detergent residues and limescale
from the jets inside the detergent
dispenser drawer housing.
Descaling the machine
If the correct amount of detergent is
dispensed, the machine should not
need to be descaled. If, however, you
do wish to descale the machine only
use proprietary non-corrosive descaling
agents and strictly observe the
instructions on the packaging.
39
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the filter in the water
inlet
The washing machine has a filter to
protect the water inlet valve.
^ First turn off the stopcock.
^ Unscrew the threaded union
connecting the free end of the inlet
hose to the stopcock.
The accessible filter in the union in the
open end of the inlet hose should be
checked every six months, or more
often if there are frequent interruptions
to the external water supply.
^ Remove the rubber seal 1 from the
recess.
^ Using pointed pliers, take hold of the
plastic filter bar 2 and remove.
^ Clean the plastic filter.
^ Put the filter and seal back in the
reverse order and reconnect the
hose.
Turn on the stopcock and check the
connection is watertight. If water drips
out, tighten the connection.
Never forget to put the filter back in
place after cleaning.

Installation and connection
Installation surface
Installing the washing machine
A concrete floor is the most suitable
installation surface for a washing
machine, being far less prone to
vibration during the spin cycle than
wooden floorboards or a carpeted
surface.
To manoeuvre the machine out of its
packing case to its installation site hold
it by the edge of the lid where it
protrudes to the rear of the washing
machine as well as by the handle
recesses at the front.
Please note the following points:
^ The machine must be level and
securely positioned.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
,Ensure that the machine feet and
the floor are dry to prevent the
machine from slipping during the
spin cycle.
Removing the transit bars
If installing on a wooden joist floor:
^ We recommend a plywood base
(at least 59x52x3 cm). The base
should span several joists and be
bolted to the joists and not only to the
floorboards. Check for the presence
of pipes and cables.
If possible, install the machine in a
corner, as this is usually the most stable
part of the floor.
,If the machine is installed on a
raised plinth, it has to be secured
against slippage during spinning
using retaining clips (available from
the Miele Spare Parts Dept).
52
^ To remove the left and right covers
1. Use a screwdriver to prise out the
cover as illustrated.
2. Pull the cover forwards to remove.

machine is to be moved again
(e.g.when moving house).
Re-fitting the transit bars
Re-fitting is carried out by reversing the
procedure.
54
Installation and connection
Levelling the machine
The machine must stand perfectly level
on all four feet to ensure safe and
proper operation.
Incorrect installation may increase
electricity and water consumption and
may cause the machine to move about.
Screwing out and adjusting the feet
The four adjustable screw feet are used
to level the machine. All four feet are
screwed in when the machine is
delivered.
^ Use a spirit level to check the
machine is standing level.
^ Hold foot 1 securely with a pipe
wrench. Turn counter nut 2 again
using the spanner supplied until it
sits firmly up against the housing.
,All four counternuts must be
firmly up against the housing. Please
also check this for the feet which did
not need adjustment. Otherwise
there is the danger of the machine
moving about.
^ Using the spanner supplied turn
counter nut 2 in a clockwise
direction. Then turn counter nut 2
together with foot 1 to unscrew.

Installation and connection
The Miele Waterproof system
The Miele Waterproof system protects
the washing machine from water
damage.
The system consists of three main
components:
1) the inlet hose
2) the electronic unit and the washing
machine housing
3) the drain hose
1) Inlet hose
– The inlet hose is fitted with an
additional electrical safety valve
which works like an automatic
stopcock and is housed in the inlet
hose connection box.
– It is pressure tested to between
7,000 and 10,000 kPa.
– The inlet hose has a protective
sleeve.
2) Electronic unit and washing
machine housing
– Sump
Any leaking water is collected in a
sump in the base of the machine. A
float switches off the safety valves,
preventing any more water from
flowing into the machine and water in
the suds container is pumped away.
– Overflow protection
This prevents the washing machine
taking in too much water. If the water
level exceeds a certain level, the
drain pump switches in and pumps
the excess water away.
3) Drain hose
The drain hose is protected by a
ventilation system which prevents the
washing machine from being
emptied completely.
Any leaking water from the inlet hose
is fed into the sump through this
protective sleeve. A float switches off
the safety valve, preventing any
more water from flowing into the
machine and water in the suds
container is pumped away.
57
Installation and connection
Connection to the water supply
,The plastic casing of the safety
valve contains electrical
components. The Waterproof system
must only be connected to its own
stopcock. It must not be connected
to mixer taps or similar and must not
be fitted in areas where there is the
risk of water or other liquids
reaching it.
The machine should be connected to
the mains water supply in accordance
with local and national safety
regulations. The German authorities do
not require it to have a non-return valve
as the washing machine has been
designed to comply with DIN
regulations.
The machine is designed to operate
with a flow pressure of between 100
and 1,000 kPa (1-10 bar). If it is higher
than 1,000 kPa it is essential to fit a
pressure reducing valve.
Connection to the mains water supply
should incorporate a mains stopcock
with 3/4" thread. The stopcock should
be fitted by a qualified plumber.
,The connection point is subject
Do not get wet.
to mains water pressure. Turn on the
stopcock slowly and check for leaks.
Correct the position of the washer
and union if appropriate.
The washing machine is not suitable
for connection to a hot water supply
and connection to a household
water softener is not recommended.
The protective sleeve of the hose
must not be damaged or kinked.
58
Installation and connection
Maintenance and care
If you intend to unscrew the Miele
Waterproof system hose from the
stopcock it is essential to disconnect
the machine from the electricity supply
first.
Only use a Miele Waterproof system
hose should you need a replacement.
In order to protect the water inlet
valve, the dirt filter in the water inlet
valve connection must not be
removed.
Extension hose
A 1.5 metre long (metal) extension hose
is available from your Miele dealer or
the Miele Spare Parts Department as an
optional extra.
This hose is tested to withstand
pressures of up to 14,000 kPa and can
be used as a flexible extension to the
water supply.
N.B. Using this hose renders the
Waterproof system safety valve on the
inlet hose ineffective.
59
Installation and connection
Connection to the drainage
system
Please note:
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre*. The
drain hose must not be kinked as this
restricts drainage. The swivel elbow at
the end of the hose can be turned in
