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 should 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.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
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.
Please do not therefore dispose it with
your household waste.
Energy saving tips
To avoid unnecessarily long drying
times and high consumption of energy:
– 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.
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives a poorer quality of
drying and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
– Make sure that the room temperature
is not too high. If there are other heat
producing appliances in the room in
which the dryer is located, make sure
the room is well ventilated and switch
the other appliances off, if possible.
– After every cycle remove the fluff
from the surfaces of the fluff filters
(see "Cleaning and Care").
– Clean the fine filters when prompted
to do so.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste recycling centre or
contact your dealer for advice. Ensure
that it presents no danger to children
while being stored for disposal.

Warning and Safety instructions
~ It is essential to read these instructions.
This tumble dryer 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 tumble dryer,
please read these instructions carefully before using it for the first
time. They contain important information on its safety, installation,
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
~ This tumble dryer is not designed for commercial use. It is
intended for use in domestic households and similar working and
residential environments.
~ The tumble dryer is not intended for outdoor use.
~ It must only be used as a domestic appliance to dry items which
have been washed in a water solution and which are marked on the
manufacturer's care label as being suitable for tumble drying. If
using dry cleaning kits, do so at your own risk, and follow the
instructions provided on the packaging.
Any other usage is not supported by the manufacturer and could be
dangerous. Miele cannot be held liable for damage resulting from
incorrect or improper use or operation.
6
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The tumble dryer can only be used by people with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience or
knowledge, if they are are supervised whilst using it or have been
shown how to use it in a safe way and understand the hazards
involved.
Safety with children
~ Children under 8 years of age must be kept away from the tumble
dryer unless they are constantly supervised.
~ Children 8 years and older may only use, clean or maintain the
tumble dryer without supervision if they have been shown how to do
so in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
~ The tumble dryer is not a toy! To prevent the risk of injury, do not
allow children to play with it or near it, or to play with the controls.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the tumble dryer, check it for any externally
visible damage.
Do not install or use a damaged tumble dryer.
~ Before connecting the tumble dryer, ensure that the connection
data on the data plate (voltage and frequency) match the mains
electricity supply. If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
~ The electrical safety of this tumble dryer can only be guaranteed
when correctly earthed. It is most important that this basic safety
requirement is observed and regularly tested, and where there is
any doubt, the household wiring system should be inspected by a
qualified electrician. Miele cannot be held liable for the
consequences of an inadequate earthing system (e.g. electric
shock).
~ Do not connect the tumble dryer to the mains electricity supply by
an extension lead. Extension leads do not guarantee the required
safety of the tumble dryer (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ If the electrical connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced
by a Miele approved service technician to protect the user from
danger.
~ 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, otherwise any
subsequent damage will not be covered by the guarantee. Ensure
current is not supplied to the tumble dryer until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
original spare parts. Only when these parts are fitted can the safety
standards of the tumble dryer be guaranteed.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The tumble dryer must be isolated from the electricity supply in
the event of a fault and during cleaning and maintenance.
~ The tumble dryer must not be used in a non-stationary location
(e.g. on a ship).
~ Do not make any alterations to the tumble dryer, unless
authorised to do so by Miele.
~ Heat pump technology and refrigerant:
The heat pump in this tumble dyer uses a refrigerant which is
condensed by the compressor and led in a closed circuit through
the heat exchanger unit where heat exchange with the circulating
drying air takes place.
– The humming noises caused by the heat pump are normal and do
not impair the efficient functioning of the dryer.
– The refrigerant is not flammable or explosive.
– In general it is not necessary to leave the dryer standing for any
length of time before it is put into operation provided it has been
transported correctly (see "Installation").
However, if it has not been transported as described, ensure that
the recommended standing time prior to first operation is
observed. Otherwise the heat pump can be damaged.
~ In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the tumble dryer
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 guarantee.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following textiles must not be dried
in this appliance:
– items which have not been washed.
– items, such as workwear, which have not been thoroughly
cleaned and which are still soiled with grease, oil or other
deposits (such as cosmetics, lotions etc).
If items have not been thoroughly cleaned there is a danger that
these might self-ignite when heated, even after they have been
removed from the dryer at the end of the programme.
– items (e.g. mops and floor cloths) which have been treated with
inflammable cleaning agents or which contain residues of
acetone, alcohol, benzine, petrol, kerosene, stain remover,
turpentine, wax and wax remover or other chemicals.
– items which have been splashed with hair lacquer, hair spray, nail
varnish remover or similar substances.
When washing such heavily soiled items, ensure that you use
additional detergent and select a high temperature. If in doubt,
wash the items several times.
~ Remove all items such as lighters and matches from pockets.
~ Warning: Do not switch the tumble dryer off before the drying
programme has finished. If this is done, the laundry must be hung
up or spread out to cool it down.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following must not be tumble dried:
– items which have been cleaned using chemicals (e.g.
professional dry-cleaning agents).
– fabrics which contain a large proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber-like materials. For example, products made from latex
foam rubber, shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubberised articles
and items of clothing and pillows with foam rubber filling.
– damaged items which contain padding or fillings (e.g. pillows,
jackets). When damaged, the filling can get out with the risk of
igniting in the dryer.
~ In many programmes, the heating phase is followed by a cooling
down phase to ensure that the items are not too hot to handle when
you remove them (this also avoids the danger of the laundry
self-igniting). The programme is not finished until the cooling down
phase has been completed.
As soon as the programme has finished, remove all laundry from the
drum.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar products must be used according
to the instructions on the manufacturer's packaging.
~ Do not let anyone sit or lean on the door, as this can cause the
tumble dryer to tip up.
~ Always close the door after use. This way you will avoid the
danger of:
– children climbing into the dryer or hiding things in it.
– pets or other small animals climbing into it.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The tumble dryer must not be used:
– without the fluff filters in place or if the fluff filters are damaged in
any way.
– without the fine filters in place of if the fine filters are damaged in
any way.
This would cause an excessive build-up of fluff which in turn would
cause a fault.
~ After every cycle remove fluff from the surfaces of the fluff filters.
~ The fluff filters and the fine filters must be thoroughly dried after
cleaning. Damp or wet filters could cause operational faults.
~ Do not install the tumble dryer in a room where there is a risk of
frost occurring. At temperatures around freezing point the tumble
dryer may not be able to operate properly. There is a risk of damage
if the condensed water is allowed to freeze in the pump and in the
drain hose.
~ If the water is drained externally 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 tumble dryer free of dust and
fluff. Dust drawn into the tumble dryer can cause blockages in the
heat exchanger unit over time.
~ The tumble dryer must not be hosed down.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele original spare parts and accessories with
this tumble dryer.
If non-Miele parts are used, guarantee, performance and product
liability claims may be invalidated.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

for more details.
Perfect Dry indicator
The electronics continually assess
conditions in the dryer 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.
Programmes can also finish earlier than
expected, if, for example, particularly
fine fabrics are being dried, the load is
very small or items were partially dry
beforehand.
The Perfect Dry system measures the
residual moisture content in the laundry
in sensor controlled programmes to
ensure perfect drying results.
After a programme has started, the
electronics will estimate the duration of
the programme (time remaining). The
Perfect Dry indicator will flash while this
is happening.
After a short while, the programme
duration will appear in the display and
the indicator will go out.

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.
– Do not put soaking wet items into the
tumble dryer. Spin fabrics for at least
30 seconds before drying.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Use the Automatic plus programme
for drying mixed loads of cottons and
minimum iron fabrics.
16
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the garment care
label, as the surface of the fabric
may otherwise become rough.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not over-dry
these textiles. When purchasing
these garments it is advisable to take
their shrinkage properties into
account.
– Minimum iron fabrics tend to crease
more, the larger the load. This is also
the case for garments made from
very fine weave fabrics, such as
shirts or blouses.
Make sure you select a suitable
programme. If in doubt, divide the
garments into smaller loads and
select the Gentle tumble extra
option.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– New dark coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately
from light coloured garments to avoid
the danger of colours running and
discolouring other garments or even
plastic components in the dryer.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.

"Programme chart" for
recommended loads for each
programme.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry and
give a disappointing drying result.
^ Before closing the door make sure
the fluff filter is correctly positioned.
– 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.

Transporting the dryer
When moving the dryer, hold it by the
lid where it protrudes to the rear. To
manoeuvre the dryer out of its packing
case to its installation site you will also
need to hold it by the front feet.
,Only transport the dryer as
shown in the following illustrations.
,If the tumble dryer has not been
transported as described, then it
must be left to stand for at least 1
hour before it is connected to the
electricity supply. Otherwise the
heat pump can be damaged.
43
Installation
Before moving the tumble dryer
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 tumble dryer 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
it. Any remaining condensed water will
then be fed into the condensed water
container or out through the drain hose.
Installation site
,Make sure the dryer door can be
opened without hindrance after
installation.
,The cool air intake panel at the
front of the dryer must not be
blocked or covered, e.g. by a
laundry basket, as this would cause
a fault.
Building under a continuous worktop/
in a row of kitchen units
,It is very important to avoid a
build-up of heat.
The warm air which is expelled from
the rear of the dryer must be able to
dissipate.
Warm air which cannot dissipate
could cause a fault.
44
A build-up of heat can be avoided by:
– Adjusting the screw feet so that there
is a gap of at least 20 mm between
the floor and the bottom of the dryer.
– Creating a gap for the dryer in the
kitchen furniture plinth facing.
– Creating ventilation gaps in the
kitchen unit.
N.B. When built under, drying times
may be longer.
,The dryer should not be installed
next to a refrigeration appliance. The
warm air expelled from the rear of
the dryer would increase the
temperature around the refrigeration
appliance's heat exchanger causing
the compressor to run continuously.
If it is not possible to install the dryer
anywhere else, then the refrigeration
appliance must be sealed off from
the dryer.
,A building-under kit (Miele
accessory, available to order) with a
coverplate to replace the
appliance´s lid is required. It must
be fitted by a suitably qualified
person to ensure electrical safety.
N.B. If you wish to push the tumble
dryer under a worktop and there is
space to do this without removing
the lid the building-under kit is not
necessary. Otherwise the
building-under kit is essential.
Installation
– The building-under kit is supplied
with its own installation instructions.
– N.B. When built under, drying times
may be longer.
– The electrical socket must be
located in an accessible position
near the appliance.
With niche heights of:
– 830-840 mm, longer screw feet* are
required.
– 870-885 / 915-930 mm, one or two
raising kits* are required.
* Miele accessory available to order
Replacing the lid
If the lid has been removed in order to
fit a coverplate, ensure that, if the lid is
ever replaced, it fits securely into the
rear holders. Otherwise, it is not
properly secure for transport.
Levelling the appliance
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
,Do not block the gap between
the bottom of the tumble dryer and
the floor with plinth facings, deep
pile carpet etc. This would hinder a
sufficient flow of air to the dryer.
Washer-dryer stack
The tumble dryer can also be
combined with a Miele washing
machine in a washer-dryer stack. The
appropriate "WTV" stacking kit* to
match your dryer is required.
* Miele accessory available to order
,Stacking kits must only be
installed by a suitably qualified fitter.
The appliance must be perfectly level
to ensure safe and proper operation.

General notes
^ There will be a small amount of
residual water in the drain hose.
Have a container ready to collect
this.
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 tumble dryer is installed near a sink,
drain outlet etc. so that the condensed
water container does not have to be
emptied.
Drain hose length . . . . . . . . . . . . 1.50 m
Maximum delivery head . . . . . . . 1.50 m
Maximum drain hose length . . . . 4.00 m
,If the on-site water drainage
system is not fitted with a non-return
valve or an appropriate air gap, one
must be fitted to prevent the risk of
back-flow. (See "Installation conditions
requiring a non-return valve").
^ Pull the hose off its connection (see
arrow).
^ Allow any residual water to run into
the container.
^ Unwind the hose and pull it carefully
out of the holders.
The following optional accessories are
available:
– an extension hose
– a non-return valve kit for connection
to an external condensed water
outlet (includes an extension hose).
Maximum delivery head with
non-return valve fitted: 1.00 m
Arranging the drain hose
,Do not pull on the drain hose and
do not stretch it or allow it to become
kinked as it could get damaged.
46
^ Position the hose to the right or left
hand side as necessary.
Leave the hose in the middle holder to
prevent it from becoming kinked
inadvertently.
Installation
External drainage via a sink or gully
^ See "Front view" illustration.
,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.
Example: Connection to a sink drain
outlet
The drain hose with non-return valve
fitted can be connected directly to a
suitable sink drain outlet.
^ Use the bow-shaped guide to
prevent the drain hose from
becoming kinked.
Installation conditions requiring a
non-return valve
,Certain installation conditions
require the fitting of a non-return
valve for external water
connection (available as an
optional accessory). A non-return
valve will prevent the risk of
back-flow out of the dryer which
could cause damage.
^ Remove the following from the back
of the dryer at the top:
Adapter 1 and hose clip 3 behind it.
A non-return valve is required:
– If the tumble dryer is connected to a
sink drain outlet (see the following
section).
– If the tumble dryer is connected to a
drainage system already in use by
another appliance, e.g. a dishwasher
or washing machine.
47
Installation
^ Fit adapter 1 to the sink drain outlet
using nut 2.
If this nut has a flat disc in it you
should take the disc out first.
^ Attach the end of hose 4 to adapter
1.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose
clip 3 up close to the nut.
1 Adapter
2 Nut
3 Hose clip
4 End of the hose
5 Non-return valve
6 Tumble dryer drain hose
48
,Non-return valve 5 has to be
fitted with the arrow pointing in the
direction of flow (i.e. towards the
sink). Otherwise water will not drain
out of the appliance.
^ Fit non-return valve 5 to tumble dryer
drain hose 6 (make sure it is fitted in
the correct direction - see arrow on
non-return valve).
^ Secure the non-return valve using
hose clips.
