Before the first use
Miele recommended detergents
The ProgrammeManager option can
be used to customise the washing programmes to suit your requirements.
Intensive
For hard-wearing laundry that is very heavily soiled. Cleaning efficiency is increased
through more intense mechanical action
and the application of more heat energy.
ECO
This option reduces energy consumption
whilst maintaining cleaning efficiency. This
is achieved by increasing the wash duration
and at the same time reducing the wash
temperature selected.
Extra gentle
This option decreases mechanical action in
order to reduce creasing. The laundry also
undergoes a smoothing process at the end
of the programme.
Extra quiet
This option reduces noise levels during the
programme. Use this if you want to wash
during quiet periods (for instance, when
children are sleeping). The machine will activate the "Rinse hold" option and not spin.
The programme duration is longer.
AllergoWash
This option should be used where high
standards of hygiene are required. More
energy is used to lengthen temperature
holding times and more water is used to
increase rinsing efficiency. The items must
be suitable for drying in a tumble dryer 
 and suitable for ironing  .
Extra options are selected and deselected
via the relevant buttons and the display.
Pre-ironing 
In order to reduce creasing, the laundry
undergoes a smoothing process at the end
of the programme. Reducing the maximum
load by 50% will give a better result. Please
note the load information in the display.
Small loads give a better result.
The garments must be suitable for drying in
a tumble dryer   and suitable for ironing  .
Short
For light soiling with no visible staining.
The wash duration is reduced.
Water plus
The water level in the main wash and the
rinses will be increased if the Water plus
option is selected.
You can select other functions for the Water
plus button. These are described in "Settings".
Stains
In order to clean stained laundry more
effectively, you can choose between 7 different types of stain. The wash programme
will then adapt to the type of stain selected.
You can select one stain per wash cycle.

Dispensing fabric softener and
liquid starch at the end of the
programme
The right amount to dispense will
depend on the following:
–– The soiling level of the laundry.
ĺĺ Add the fabric softener or liquid starch to
the  compartment or insert the appropriate capsule. Do not exceed the maximum level mark.
It will be automatically dispensed in the final
rinse. At the end of the programme a small
amount of water remains in the fabric softener  compartment.
If starching frequently, thoroughly clean
the dispenser compartment, especially
the siphon tube, regularly.
–– The quantity of the laundry.
–– The water hardness level in your area.
Check with your local water supplier if
you do not know the hardness level in
your area.

Cleaning the TwinDos system
The washing machine has a cleaning programme for cleaning the TwinDos system containers and the hoses inside the
washing machine.
Miele 2 Phase System cartridges do not
need to be cleaned.
Cleaning the containers and hoses
Clean the container or containers and
hoses every time you change the brand of
liquid detergent or fabric softener or if the
system has not been used for a long period
of time (more than three months).
If the system has not been used for a
long time, the detergent in the hoses can
become viscous.
The hoses could become blocked and
would then need to be cleaned by a service technician.
