Caring for the environment
Disposing 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
recycled.
Disposing 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 dispose of it with your
general waste.
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.

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 the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
– Remove the fluff from the filter when
necessary (see "Cleaning and Care").
– Check all parts of the ventilation
system on a regular basis, and
remove any build-up of fluff etc.
The vent ducting should be as short,
straight and smooth as possible to
minimise any resistance to the air
throughflow.

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 appliance.
~ Before connecting the machine, ensure that the connection data
on the data plate (voltage and rated 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 safety regulations. It
is most important that this basic safety requirement is present and
regularly tested and, where there is any doubt, the on-site 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 tumble dryer 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).
~ 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. If this is not
done, any resultant damage will not be covered by the warranty.
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
spare parts. Only when these parts are fitted can the safety
standards of the tumble dryer 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.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ In the event of a fault or for cleaning purposes, the machine must
be disconnected from the electricity supply. It 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.
~ In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance in a
clean condition at all times. Any damage which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered by the warranty.
~ To ensure the correct performance of the appliance and to
prevent the risk of faults and fire, it is important to check it and carry
out maintenance on a regular basis.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
, Caution! Risk of fire.
To avoid the possible danger of fire please red these warnings carefully.
, A clogged filter is a hazard! The lint filter must be cleaned after
every programme.
~ Remove all objects from pockets such as lighters and matches.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following textiles must not be dried
in this tumble dryer:
– 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 ignite when heated, even after they have been
removed from the dryer at the end of the programme.
– items that have been soiled with substances such as cooking oil,
acetone, petrol, kerosene, spot removers, turpentine, waxes, wax
removers and other chemicals (e.g. mops and floor cloths) should
be washed in hot water with extra detergent before being dried in
the tumble dryer.
– items which have been splashed with hair lacquer, hair spray, nail
varnish remover or similar substances.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
When washing such heavily soiled items ensure that you use
sufficient detergent and select a high temperature. If in doubt,
wash the items several times.
~ Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when
exposed to heat sources such as in a tumble dryer. The items
become warm, causing an oxidation reaction in the oil.
Oxidation creates heat.
If the heat cannot escape, the items can become hot enough to
catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can prevent
heat from escaping and so create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics contaminated with vegetable or
cooking oil, or hair care products, are placed in a tumble dryer, they
should first be washed in hot water with extra detergent - this will
reduce, but not eliminate, the hazard.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following textiles or products must
not be dired in this tumble dryer:
– Items which have been dry-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.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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.
Ensure that you always wait until the end of the programme before
removing the laundry.
~ Warning: Do not switch the appliance off before the end of the
drying programme. If this was done and the laundry was then
removed immediately it could give off a great amount of heat.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar products must be used according
to the instructions on the manufacturer's packaging.
~ The tumble dryer is not to be used if industrial chemicals have
been used to clean it.
~ For appliances with ventilation openings in the base, a carpet
must not obstruct the openings.
~ The tumble dryer must not be used
– without the fluff filters in place or if the fluff filters are damaged.
– without the fine filter in place or if the fine filters are damaged.
This would cause an excessive build-up of fluff which in turn would
cause a fault!
~ After every cycle, remove the fluff from the surfaces and the fluff
filters (see "Cleaning and care").
~ Fluff must not be allowed to accumulate around the tumble dryer.
~ The fluff filters and the fine filter must be thoroughly dried after
cleaning. Damp or wet filters could cause operational faults.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not let anyone sit or lean on the doors, as this can cause the
tumble dryer to tip up. Danger of injury.
~ Always close the doors after use. This way you will avoid the
danger of:
– children climbing into the appliance or hiding things in it.
– pets or other small animals climbing into it.
~ Do not use a pressure washer or hose to clean the appliance.
~ Always keep the area around the tumble dryer stack free of dust
and fluff. Dust drawn into the appliance can cause blockages over
time. Faults can then occur as well as the risk of fire.
~ The tumble dryer stack must only be used when it is connected to
a suitable ducting system. The installation site must be adequately
ventilated.
~ The ducting must not be connected to
– a chimney or vent flue which is in use,
– or to ducting which ventilates rooms with fireplaces,
– or to chimneys being used by other appliances.
Smoke or exhaust fumes can cause poisoning.
~ Check all parts of the extraction system on a regular basis (e.g.
wall vent, external grille, bends in the ducting etc.) and make sure
they are all free of any hindrance. A build-up of fluff will prevent a
free flow of air through the system. If the appliance is to be
connected to an existing ducting system, this must be checked for
suitability beforehand.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Adequate ventilation is essential to avoid the danger of
asphyxia and toxic fumes where another appliance which also
uses the room air (e.g. gas, oil or coal fired heater, continuous flow
or other water heater) is installed in the same or an adjacent room.
To ensure safe operation, and to prevent gases given off by these
appliances being drawn back into the room, an underpressure of 4
Pa is the maximum permissible.
Ventilation can be maintained by:
– air inlets in the external wall which cannot be closed or blocked,
or
– by fitting a window contact switch which ensures that the
appliance can only be operated when the window is open.
If in doubt, the advice of a competent builder must be sought.
~ The tumble dryer must not be used without the fluff filters in place
or if the fluff filters are damaged in any way. Damaged filters can
cause operational faults and blockages in the airways, the heating
elements and in the ducting. Fire hazard!
In the event of a damaged filter, switch the appliance off and
replace the filter with a new one.
~ Do not install the tumble dryer in a room where there is a risk of
frost occurring. At temperatures around freezing point the appliance
may not be able to operate properly.
The ambient room temperature should be between +2°C and
+50°C.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Benzine, petrol, paraffin or any easily flammable liquid must not
be stored or used near the tumble dryer stack. Fire and explosion
risk.
~ Do not allow air contaminated with chlorine, fluorine or other
vapours containing solvents to get into the tumble dryer stack. Fire
hazard.
~ For appliances with stainless steel surfaces:
The stainless steel surfaces must not come into contact with liquid
cleaning and disinfecting agents which contain chlorine or sodium
hypochlorite. These agents can have a corrosive effect on stainless
steel.
Aggressive vapours containing chlorine can also be corrosive.
Do not store containers of these agents near the appliance.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele original spare parts and accessories with
this appliance. If spare parts or accessories from other
manufacturers are used, this will invalidate the warranty, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

Before drying
– Wash heavily soiled items very
thoroughly, ensuring that you use
sufficient detergent and select a high
temperature. If in doubt, wash the
items several times.
– Do not put soaking wet items into the
tumble dryer. 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.
– New dark-coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately
from light-coloured garments the first
few times they are washed to avoid
the risk of colours running and
discolouring other garments or even
the plastic components in the tumble
dryer.
Dark-coloured fibres can also settle
on light-coloured garments and vice
versa.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– Check the seams of padded or
down-filled items to prevent the risk
of fillings coming out. These could
catch fire in the tumble dryer.
– Tie together textile belts and apron
ties to stop them getting tangled.
– Fasten . . .
. . . duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being trapped
inside them. . ., hooks and eyes etc.
– Stitch in or remove loose underwiring
from bras.
– Leave jackets open and undo any
long zips so that textiles dry evenly.
– For an even drying result, it is
important to . . .
. . . spin,
. . . shake out,
. . . and sort items according to
fabric type, size, care label and the
drying level required.

Notes and tips on laundry care
2. Load the tumble dryer
,Using the tumble dryer
incorrectly could cause a fire. Read
the "Warning and Safety instructions"
before using the tumble dryer.
,Make sure that objects, e.g.
detergent dispensing balls, have
been removed from the laundry.
They could melt and cause damage
to the dryer or the laundry.
– Do not overload the drum.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry, give a
disappointing drying result and
cause more creasing.
– To save energy, always observe the
maximum load for each programme
(see the separate booklet
"Commissioning, Programme chart
and Settings").
– Minimum iron fabrics tend to crease
more the greater the load. This is
also the case for garments made
from very fine weave fabrics, such as
shirts or blouses.
If necessary, reduce the size of the
load for these types of fabrics.
3. Select a programme
. . . e.g. Machine iron or Hand iron if
the laundry needs further processing
after drying, e.g. machine ironing.
See separate booklet
"Commissioning, Programme chart
and Settings".
– For delicate fabrics with the r care
label, select Low temperature as
well.
– 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. It can be
partially dried using the Smoothing
programme.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. Only dry these
fabrics in a Woollens 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.
– On many programmes, different
drying levels can be selected
depending on individual
requirements. . . e.g.Normal+ for
laundry that you want to fold and put
away immediately after drying.

Short instructions
Programme duration/Estimated time
remaining
E Remove the laundry when the
programme has finished
When a programme is selected, the
estimated duration will appear in the
display. Please be aware that it is only
an estimate!
Anti-crease (if selected) and Finish will
appear in the display to indicate that
the programme has finished.
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 assess conditions in the
appliance 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.
During the anti-crease phase the drum
will continue to turn at intervals until the
laundry is removed. This helps to
prevent laundry creasing.
It is recommended that laundry be
removed as soon as the programme
has finished.
Before the end of a programme
In many programmes the heating
phase is followed by the cooling down
phase: Cooling down will appear in the
display. The programme is not finished
until the cooling down phase has been
completed.
Do not switch the tumble dryer off
before the drying programme has
finished.

Short instructions
^ Remove everything from the drum.
Check that all items have been
removed from the drum. If items are
left in the dryer, they could be
damaged by overdrying when the

38
Fluff is principally the
result of friction when

Room ventilation
,As the air required for drying is
drawn from the room in which the
dryer is installed, the room must be
sufficiently ventilated, e.g. by vents
in the outside wall which are
permanently open.
,The tumble dryer draws air in
,In the following cases, the feet of
the tumble dryer must be secured
with clamps* (available as an
optional accessory).
– If it is being installed on an
existing plinth.
Instead of using clamps, all-round
plinth edging in the area of the feet
of the dryer may be sufficient.
from the back. For this reason, an
appropriate gap must be maintained
between the back of the dryer and
the wall (see "Installation positions").
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.
– When a venting system with
plastic piping is used.

Installation and connection
Electrical connection
The machine is supplied with a mains
cable with moulded plug for connection
to a 230V mains supply.
,The voltage, rated load and fuse
rating are given on the data plate.
Please ensure these match the site
mains supply.
The accesibility of the plug must always
be ensured in order to separate the
machine from the mains.
All electrical work should be carried out
only by a suitably qualified and
competent person, in strict accordance
with national and local safety
regulations.
For extra safety, it is advisable to
protect the machine with a suitable
residual current device (RCD) with a
trip current of 30 mA.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation work
has been carried out.
Connection should be made via a
suitable switching socket which is
easily accessible after installation in
order to separate the machine from the
mains.
Do not connect the 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).

Installation - extraction ducting
General
,Before operating the tumble
dryer, a suitable ducting system
must be installed to carry the moist
air from the dryer to the outside.
The dryer must be disconnected from
the mains electricity supply whilst the
ducting system is installed.
The venting outlet (e.g. in a wall) should
be installed in such a way that the moist
expelled air:
. . .cannot be drawn back into the room
in which the dryer is installed;
. . . cannot cause any damage to the
building or other nuisance.
Avoid:
– very long ducting systems.
– too many tight bends or corners.
Otherwise the drying result will be less
effective, and it will take longer and use
more energy.
Suitable materials
– for the ventilation ducting:
flexible ducting* or plastic piping
with a diameter of at least 100 mm.
– for venting to the outside:
a wall vent kit* or a window vent kit*.
(* optional extras)
The dryer uses the room air. It is
therefore essential to ensure adequate
ventilation to avoid the danger of
asphyxia and toxic fumes caused by
gases given off by other appliances
being drawn back into the room.
Insufficient ventilation will also cause
drying times to be considerably longer.
Ventilation can be maintained by:
– an open window,
– air inlets in the external wall of a
minimum of 150 cm2 which cannot
be closed or blocked, or
– a window switch which prevents the
dryer being used when the window is
closed.
51
Installation - extraction ducting
To calculate the total duct
length
Friction against the inner walls of the
vent ducting will slow down the
expelled air as it passes through the
ducting. An elbow, bend, non-return
flap or wall vent creates more friction
than a straight duct. The friction
created by each of these is expressed
as an additional duct length factor.
The additional duct length factors are
calculated by comparing the friction
created by, for example, an elbow to
that created by 1 metre of straight
plastic piping (see Table 1).
The additional duct length factor for
each item needs to be added together
to ascertain the total duct length which
will be needed for the venting system.
The total duct length is a means of
calculating the friction created by the
venting system as a whole.
A larger internal duct diameter also
helps reduce friction. If the total duct
length is more than 20 m, the duct
diameter should be increased (see
Table II).
4. Refer to Table II for the appropriate
duct diameter required.

Procedure
1. First measure the distance requiring
straight ducting. Multiply this amount
by the corresponding additional
length factor in Table I.
2. Establish the number of angles,
bends etc., and add their additional
length factors together with the help
of Table I.
3. Add all the additional length factors
to give the total duct length.
