Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Disposal of your old appliance
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 of your
appliance with your household waste.
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.
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 (see
Programme chart).
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives a poorer quality of
drying and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
– Make sure the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
– Make sure the fluff filters are clean
before using the dryer.
– Check the condenser unit from time
to time and clean it when necessary.
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.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
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, 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 of the
machine.
Correct use
The tumble dryer is only intended
for drying fabrics which have been
washed in a water solution, marked on
the manufacturer's care label as being
suitable for tumble drying.
"Dry cleaning kits" for freshening up
garments in a tumble dryer are
increasingly available on the market. If
using, do so at your own risk, and
follow the instructions provided on the
packaging.
Any other applications may be
dangerous. The manufacturer is not
liable for damage resulting from
improper use or operation.
6
Before setting up the machine,
check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install or 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.
The electrical safety of this
machine can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
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 appliance 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).
Warning and Safety instructions
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
machine 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
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.

Warning and Safety instructions
In the event of a fault or for
cleaning purposes, the machine is
only completely isolated from the
electiricty supply when:
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug is withdrawn, or
– it is switched off at the mains, or
– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
Operation
This equipment 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.
The dryer must not be used without
the fluff filters in place or if the fluff
filters are damaged in any way.
The fluff filters must be thoroughly
dried after cleaning. If they are still
damp or wet when replaced there is a
risk of faults occurring when the
machine is used.
The dryer must not be used without
the condenser unit in place.
Do not install the machine in a
room where there is a risk of frost
occurring. At temperatures around
freezing point the machine may not be
able to operate properly.
There is a risk of damage if the
condensed water is allowed to freeze in
the pump, hoses and / or condensed
water container.
The ambient room temperature should
be between +2°C and +35°C.
8
If the water is drained externally
through the drain hose instead of
being collected in the condensed water
container, make sure the drain hose is
securely attached if you hang it in a
sink or basin to avoid the hose slipping
and the water causing damage.
Condensed water is not drinking
water. It can cause health
problems in both people and animals.
Always keep the area around the
machine free of dust and fluff. Dust
drawn into the machine can, over time,
cause blockages in the condenser unit.
Warning and Safety instructions
To prevent the risk of fire the
following textiles must not be
dried in this machine:
– fabrics which contain a large
proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber like materials.
– items which contain padding or
fillings (e.g. pillows, jackets).
– items which have been treated with
inflammable cleaning agents.
– items which have been splashed with
hair lacquer, hair spray, nail varnish
remover or similar substances.
– items which have been soiled with
oils or residues containing grease
(kitchen oils, cosmetics etc.).
– items soiled with wax or other
chemicals (e.g. mops and floor
cloths).
– items which have not been
thoroughly cleaned and which are
still soiled with grease or oil, e.g.
workwear. Such clothing may require
a heavy duty detergent to get them
clean. If necessary consult the
detergent manufacturer for advice.
Do not let anyone sit or lean on the
door, as this can cause the
machine to tip up.
Safety with children
This machine is not a toy. To avoid
the risk of injury keep children
away from the machine at all times and
supervise them whilst you are using it.
Do not allow children to play on or near
it or to play with its controls. Supervise
its use by the elderly or infirm.
Using accessories
Accessory parts may only be fitted
when expressly approved by Miele.
If non-Miele parts are used with this
machine, guarantee, performance and
product liability claims may 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 and
cut off the cable directly behind the
machine. 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.
Always close the door after use.
This way you will avoid the danger
of:
– children climbing onto or into the
dryer or hiding things in it.
– pets or other small animals climbing
into it.

Notes on laundry care
Care symbols
Before drying check the drying symbol
on the care label. If there are no
symbols, dry at your own risk!
q . . . . . . . . . Dry at normal temperature
r . . . . . . . . . . Dry at a low temperature
s . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Do not tumble dry
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 them thoroughly
after washing using the appropriate
spin speed.
– For delicates and fabrics with the
following care label r select Low
temperature.
– Use the Automatic programme for
drying mixed loads of cottons and
minimum iron fabrics.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can, however,
be partially dried using the Woollens
handcare programme.
14
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label, as
the surface of the fabric may
otherwise become rough. They can
be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– 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.
– For garments made from very fine
weave fabrics, such as shirts or
blouses, only use the Shirts or
Delicates programme to avoid
creasing. If in doubt, reduce the load
or use the Smoothing or Silks
handcare programme.
– 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 machine.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.

The following factors all affect the
estimated time remaining: residual
moisture content after spinning; type of
fabric; size of load; room temperature;
fluctuations in power supply.
The electronics continually assess
conditions in the machine and adjust
the estimated time remaining for a more
accurate reading. Because of this the
time displayed can alter during the
course of a programme.
In the same way, the Woollens
handcare and Smoothing programmes
can finish earlier than expected if a
certain temperature is reached. This
can happen with particularly fine
fabrics or if items were dry beforehand.
How to dry correctly
Before the end of a programme
There is a cooling down phase at the
end of the drying sequence: Cooling
down will appear in the display. The
programme will not finish until the
cooling down phase has been
completed.
There is no cooling down phase at the
end of the following programmes:
Woollens handcare, Smoothing.
^ Empty the condensed water
container (unless the dryer is
connected for external drainage).
At the end of a programme
Anti-crease and Finish will appear in
the display to indicate that the
programme has finished. The buzzer
will sound.
During the anti-crease phase (factory
default setting) the drum will continue to
rotate at intervals to prevent laundry
creasing if you do not wish to remove it
immediately. The anti-crease phase
lasts for 1 hour.
F Remove the laundry
^ Press the a button to open the door.
^ Remove the laundry.
Make sure that the drum is empty. If
items are left in the dryer, they could
be damaged by overdrying when
the dryer is next used.
If the appliance is switched on at the
mains and the door is opened, the
drum lighting will come on. It will go out
a few minutes later to save energy.
^ Press the s button to switch the
dryer off.

29
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the fluff filters
The fluff which is created by the drying
process is collected by the fluff filters in
the door and the door opening. Clean
the filters after each drying programme.
Cleaning them whilst dry

of the door holder. A cleaning brush
is available as an optional extra from
your Miele dealer or the Miele Spare
Parts Department.
Tip: You can also use a vacuum
cleaner.
^ Once clean, push the filter back into
the door holder until it clicks into
position. Ensure it is facing the
correct way.
^ Also clean the door seal (2) with a
damp cloth.
^ Open the door and pull the fluff filter
(1) out of the door as illustrated.
^ Use your fingers to remove the fluff
from the two fluff filters in the door
opening.

fluff on any of the filters, they can be
removed and cleaned under hot
running water.
^ To remove the fluff filter from the door
holder see previous page.
^ Place the filters back in the door
opening (the left and right filters are
identical) with the finger holders
facing upwards. See illustration.
Cleaning the tumble dryer

fits correctly into the groove.
^ Then flush the unit through from the
front.
^ Check the condenser unit again for
any visible fluff and if necessary flush
it through again until it has all gone.
^ Remove any soiling still visible inside
the housing unit by hand using a
damp cloth. Do not try and access
areas you cannot reach by hand!
^ Also make sure the rubber seals are
clean.
The rubber seals must not be
removed and must be free of kinks.

Installation
Installation site
,Make sure the dryer door can be
opened without hindrance after
installation.
The machine must be perfectly level to
ensure safe and proper operation.
Room in which the dryer is located
Air taken in for use in the drying
process will be warm when it is
expelled from the rear of the dryer. This
expelled air heats up the air in the
room. It is therefore very important to
ensure that the room is adequately
ventilated, particularly if the dryer is
located in a small room. Otherwise
running times and energy consumption
could be increased.
Transporting the machine to its
installation site
When moving the machine you can
hold it by the lid where it protrudes to
the rear of the dryer.
To manoeuvre the dryer out of its
packing case to its installation site you
will also need to hold it by the front feet.
Aligning the machine
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
,The ventilation gaps in the plinth
must not be covered over as this
would prevent a sufficient intake of
air.
This tumble dryer is not suitable for
building under (due to its sloping
facia).
Before moving the machine again
(e.g. when moving house)
After each use a small quantity of
condensed water will collect in the area
around the pump. This water can run
out if the machine is tipped up when it
is being moved. It is a good idea to run
the Cool air programme for
approximately 1 minute before moving
the machine. Any remaining
condensed water will then be fed into
the condensed water container or out
through the drain hose.
43
Installation
External condensed water
outlet
From the back of the dryer at the
bottom:
When drying is in progress, condensed
water is pumped into the condensed
water container through the drain hose
at the back of the dryer. The
condensed water can also be drained
off directly if the machine is installed
near a sink, drain outlet etc. so that
the condensed water container does
not have to be emptied.
The drain hose (approx. 2 m long) is
stored in the dryer. It must be pulled
out of the dryer to its full extent if
condensed water is to be drained
externally. Maximum delivery head:
1 m.
If it is not long enough, an extension
hose is available as an optional
accessory through your dealer or from
the Miele Spare Parts Dept.
Setting up the drain hose
^ Unclip the drain hose from clip (3).
^ Then pull the drain hose completely
out of the dryer towards the left (4)
(See illustration). Important:
,Do not let the drain hose
become kinked, as this could
damage it.
From the back of the dryer at the top:
,If you want to drain the water off
into a sink you will need to secure
the hose carefully, e.g. by tying it to
a tap to make sure it cannot slip
during use. Otherwise there is a risk
of overflowing water which could
cause damage.
Use the bow-shaped guide to prevent
the drain hose from becoming kinked
(see "Front view" illustration).
^ Unclip the drain hose from clip (1).
^ Then pull it off holder (2).
44
Installation
Connection to a sink drain outlet
The drain hose can be connected
directly to a sink drain outlet.
If this nut has a flat disc in it you should
take the disc out first. Important: if this
nut has a washer or seal in it this must
not be removed!
^ Attach the end of the hose to
adapter 1.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose
clip 3 up close to the nut.
If you no longer wish to use an
external condensed water outlet
,Do not push the drain hose
back into the dryer. Doing this could
cause it to become kinked and
damaged in the dryer.
^ Remove the following from the back
of the dryer at the bottom:
Adapter 1 and hose clip 3 behind it.
^ Loop the drain hose up.
^ Use a suitable cable tie to secure the
looped hose to the back of the dryer,
or simply lay the looped hose behind
the dryer.
^ Attach the open end of the drain
hose back onto the holder at the
back of the dryer at the top (see
holder 2 in "Setting up the drain
hose").
^ Fit adapter 1 to the sink drain outlet
using nut 2.

Electrical connection
Electrical connection U.K.
Non-rewireable plugs BS 1363
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).
46
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.
