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 and 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. The plug must be
rendered useless and the cable cut off
directly behind it to prevent misuse.
See the "Warning and Safety" section of
this booklet for further details.

Warning and safety instructions
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the machine please read
these instructions carefully before
using it for the first time. They
contain important information on its
safety, use and maintenance.
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 usage
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 is not liable for
damage resulting from improper use or
operation.
Technical safety
Before setting up the machine,
check it for any externally visible
damage. Do not install and use a
damaged machine.
Before connecting the 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.
6
The electrical safety of this
machine can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the machine and an effective earthing
system which complies with local and
national 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 machine to the
mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
machine (e.g. danger of 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 until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
The 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.
Warning and safety instructions
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.
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.
If the connection cable is faulty it
must only be replaced by a Miele
approved service technician to protect
the user from danger.
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.
Use
This equipment may only be used
in mobile installations such as
ships, caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
Do not install your washing
machine in rooms where
temperatures below freezing may
occur. Frozen hoses may burst under
pressure. The reliability of the electronic
control unit may be impaired at
temperatures below freezing point.
Before using the machine for the
first time, check that the transit
fitting at the rear of the machine has
been removed (see section on
"Installation"). During spinning, a transit
fitting 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.
Otherwise this will result in flooding.
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.

Warning and safety instructions
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. If in
doubt, contact the Miele Customer Service Dept. or your Miele Dealer.
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 in this machine, as this may
result in damage to component parts
and create toxic fumes. Such
detergents also pose a fire and
explosion hazard.
Only use dyes specified by the
manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a domestic washing machine.
Always observe the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
Colour run and dye removers
contain sulphur compounds which
can cause damage such as corrosion.
Do not use these products in this
machine.
Always make sure the drum is
stationary before reaching in to
remove washing. Reaching into a
moving drum is extremely dangerous.
8
Safety with children
This machine 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, and supervise
children whilst you are operating the
machine.
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.
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.
Disposal of your old machine
Before discarding an old machine,
switch it off at the wall socket and
unplug it. Render the plug useless. Cut
off the cable directly behind the
appliance to prevent misuse. This
should be done by a competent
person.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

Before using for the first time
Before using the machine for the first time ensure that it is
correctly installed and connected. See "Installation and
connection". Also check that the drain filter is securely
tightened to prevent the risk of water leaks during use.
The washing machine has a sensor 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.
^ Open the stopcock.
^ Press the s button in.
If the washing machine is being switched on for the first time,
the welcome screen will appear.
The welcome screen will not appear again once a
programme lasting longer than 1 hour has been
completed.
Reminder to remove transport struts
To avoid the risk of damage, the transport struts must be
removed before the washing machine is used for the first
time. See "Installation and connection" for instructions on
how to do this.
^ Remove the transport struts (if this has not already been
done by your fitter). Then confirm that you want to continue
by pressing short cut button 4.

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 Quick wash
programmes for small loads.
– If smaller loads are washed using the
Cottons Hygiene and the Cottons
Universal programmes, 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.
– Instead of using Cottons Hygiene
95°, use Cottons Universal 60° and
select the Extra option Intensive. This
will give an energy saving of
between 35% and 45%. The
programme duration will be longer.
This combination is sufficient for
most levels of soiling. For stubborn
or old stains, use the Extra option
Soak.
14
– Reduce the amount of detergent for
smaller loads (use the Detergent
sub-menu).
Choosing the correct Extra options
(Soak, Pre-wash, Intensive)
Select:
a wash programme without any Extra
options for light to normal soiling
where there are no obvious marks.
a wash programme with the Extra
option Intensive for normal to heavily
soiled laundry with visible staining.
– Use the Extra option Soak instead of
Pre-wash. If Soak is followed immediately by a main wash the same suds
are used.
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
^ Sort the laundry by colour and by
care label. Most garments have a
textile care label in the collar or side
seam.
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.
^ 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 removed as soon as possible,
preferably whilst still fresh. Spillages
should be carefully dabbed off using
a soft colourfast cloth. Do not rub!
– 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)
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.
,Do not use solvent-based
cleaning agents in this machine.

B Switch on the washing machine
The interior drum lighting will come on.
C Select a programme
You can select a programme either by:
– using the appropriate short cut
button to select one of the four
frequently used programmes, or
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.
– by going into the Prog. Selection
menu.
If required, you can then select any
Extra and/or Delay start from the
relevant sub-menu.
D Load the drum
^ Press the a button to open the
drum door.
^ 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.
The load size and the detergent
indicators will appear.
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. Please refer to "Adding
detergent" for more information.
16
^ Shut the door with a firm swing.

^ Pull out the detergent drawer and
add detergent to the compartments
as follows:
i
Detergent for the pre-wash
(add 1/4 of the total amount
recommended). This compartment is
also used for starch formulations
when starching separately.
too little detergent results in:
– Laundry not getting properly clean
and with time it may become grey
and hard to the touch.
j
Detergent for the main wash
including Soak
– Greasy particles clinging to the
laundry.
– Limescale deposits on the heater
elements.
§
Fabric conditioner or liquid starch.
too much detergent results in:
^ Close the detergent drawer.
– Excessive foam which causes a low
level of agitation and poor wash,
rinse and spin results.
See "Detergent" for further information
on detergent and the amount to
dispense.
– High water consumption (an
additional rinse cycle will
automatically switch in).
– A burden to the environment.
17
How to wash correctly
F Start the programme
^ Press the flashing Start button.
The estimated programme duration will
appear in the display. This will count
down in one minute steps. During the
first 10 minutes the washing 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 washing
machine shows you when each section
of the programme is reached.
^ Press the a button to open the
drum door.
^ Remove the laundry.
Only remove laundry from the
machine once the drum has
stopped turning. Reaching into a
moving drum is extremely
dangerous and could result in injury.
Check that all items have been
removed from the drum. Items left in
the drum could discolour other items
in the next wash or become
discoloured themselves.
The drum lighting switches off once the
programme has started.
Once washing is in progress, you can
press one of the short cut buttons to
select or de-select additional options,
or call up other information as follows:
– Button 1 Extras: you can select or
de-select the Intensive and/or Rinse
hold Extra options up to 5 minutes
after the programme has started.
– Button 2 Timer m: you can 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. The suds are
pumped away immediately.
G Remove the laundry
Anti-crease and Finish will flash
alternately in the display to indicate that
the programme has finished.
18
^ Check the folds in the door seal for
any small articles, e.g. buttons which
might be lodged there.
^ Switch the washing machine off with
the s button.
^ Close the drum door. Otherwise there
is the danger of objects being placed
inadvertently in the drum. If these
remained unnoticed and were
washed in the next load, they could
damage the laundry.
Favourite programmes
You can programme the short cut buttons to call up the four
wash programmes you use most frequently.

Ready!
Detergent
All modern detergents produced for
automatic washing machines are
suitable, including liquid, compact
(concentrated), tablets, liquid tablets
and special application detergents.
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 Quick wash
programmes.
Silks, woollens and knitwear containing
wool mixtures and hand-washable
garments should be washed using a
liquid detergent specifically designed
for washing woollens. Do not use
biological detergents on silk as the
enzymes may damage the silk!
Instructions for use and recommended
amounts for a full load 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.
The right amount to dispense will
depend on the following:
– The quantity of laundry (follow the
machine’s dispensing
recommendation and reduce the
amount of detergent with smaller
loads as indicated on the display)
– The soiling level of the laundry.
Lightly soiled No visible dirt or stains.
Possibly slight body odour.
Normally soiled Visibly dirty and/or
just a few slight stains.
Heavily soiled Stains and soiling
clearly visible.
– The water hardness level. Check with
your local water supplier if you do not
know the water hardness level in
your area.
Water softeners
A water softener can be used to cut
down on the use of detergents in
extremely hard water areas. Dispense
according to the amount specified on
the packaging. First add detergent and
then the water softener. Use a quantity
of detergent as for soft water. 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),
dispense them into compartment j in
the following order:
1. Detergent
2. Water softener
3. Stain remover
This way the agents are distributed
more efficiently.
37
Detergent
Fabric conditioners and liquid
starch
Fabric conditioners make garments soft
and fluffy 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.
^ Dispense according to the amount
specified on the packaging.
Automatic dispensing of fabric
conditioner or liquid starch to
laundry at the end of a programme
If starching frequently, clean the dispenser compartment and especially
the siphon tube and conditioner
channel regularly. See "Cleaning the
detergent dispenser drawer". Do not
add starch formulations or viscous
liquid starch to the § compartment
as it will clog it up. See "Adding
starch separately".
Adding fabric conditioner separately
^ Add fabric conditioner to
compartment §.
^ Select the Starch programme.
^ Press the Start button.
Adding starch separately
^ Prepare the starch solution in
accordance with manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging.
^ Add the starch formulation to
compartment i.
^ Select the Starch programme.
^ Press the Start button.
^ Add the fabric conditioner or liquid
starch to compartment §. Do not
exceed the maximum level mark.
The conditioner or liquid starch is
automatically dispensed in the last
rinse. At the end of the programme a
small amount of water remains in the
fabric conditioner compartment §.
38
Colour run and dye removers /
dyes
^ Do not use colour run or dye
removers in this washing machine.
^ Dyes suitable for use in domestic
washing machines can be used.
However, please note that the salt
used in the dyeing process can
cause corrosion to stainless steel
components in the machine if you
dye frequently. Always observe the
manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Cleaning and care
,Disconnect the machine from the
mains electricity supply and
withdraw the plug from the socket
prior to cleaning the machine.
^ Clean the casing with a mild
non-abrasive detergent or soap and
water. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ Clean the fascia panel with a damp
cloth and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ The drum can be cleaned using a
suitable proprietary stainless-steel
cleaning agent following the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
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.
,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.
The washing machine must not be
hosed down.
E-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.
39
Cleaning and care

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:
Please note:
^ The machine must be level and
securely positioned.
^ Do not lift the machine by the drum
door.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
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.
,Ensure that the machine feet and
the floor are dry to prevent the
machine from slipping during the
spin cycle.
Removing the transit fittings
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).
^ 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.
53
Installation and connection
^ Using the spanner supplied turn the
left-hand transit bar 90°, then
^ Turn the right-hand transit bar 90°,

Installation and connection
,The washing machine must not
be moved without the transit bars in
place.
Store the transit bars as shown or
keep them in a safe place for future
use. They must be re-fitted if the
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.
^ Fit the covers on to the two holes.
Then plug the holes as shown with
the caps.
^ Secure the transit bars to the back of
the washing machine. Make sure that
holes b are fitted over retainers a.
55
Installation and connection
Levelling the machine
The machine must stand perfectly level
on all four feet to ensure safe and
proper operation.
^ Using the spanner supplied turn
counter nut 2 in a clockwise
direction. Then turn counter nut 2
together with foot 1 to unscrew.
Incorrect installation may increase
electricity and water consumption and
may cause the machine to move about.
False values may also show in the Load
and Detergent display.
^ Use a spirit level to check the
machine is standing level.
^ Hold foot 1 securely with a pipe
wrench. Turn counter nut 2 again

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.
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.
58
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.
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 a
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. If it is higher than
1,000 kPa it is essential to fit a reducer
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
to mains water pressure. Turn on the
stopcock slowly and check for leaks.
Correct the position of the washer
and union if appropriate.
Do not get wet.
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.
59
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.
60
Installation and connection
Connection to the drainage
system
Drain hose connection:
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre*.
Please note the following
The drain hose must not be kinked as
this restricts drainage. The swivel elbow
at the end of the hose can be turned in
either direction, or can be detached if
required, with a sharp twist and pull.
If required, the drain hose can be
extended to a length of 5 m. The
necessary parts can be purchased
from the Miele Spare Parts Department
or your Miele dealer.
* For a delivery head of more than 1 m
(up to a maximum of 1.8 m) a second
duo-drain pump is available with the
corresponding kit from the Miele Spare
Parts Department or your Miele Dealer.
1. Direct into a sink or basin:
– Hook the hose over the edge and
secure.
– Make sure that the water can drain
away freely without hindrance.
Otherwise there is a risk of water
overflowing or of some of the drained
water being sucked back into the
machine.
2. Connected securely to a plastic drain
pipe with a rubber nipple. There is no
need to use a non-return valve.
3. Connected securely to a standpipe.
4. Connected securely to a floor gully.

All electrical work should be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
person, in strict accordance with
national and local safety regulations.
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).
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation work
has been carried out.
The appliance is supplied with a mains
cable with moulded plug ready for
connection to a 230-240V mains
supply. The voltage and connected
load are given on the data plate.
Please ensure these match the
household mains supply. The fuse
rating is quoted on the plug.
Connection should be made via a
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.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
62
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.
