Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
This appliance 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 appliance, please
read these instructions carefully
before using it for the first time. They
contain important information on its
safety, use and maintenance.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and pass them on to any
future owner.
Correct application
~ This dishwasher is intended
exclusively for cleaning domestic
crockery and cutlery in a domestic
household. Using it for purposes other
than those for which it was designed,
as well as any alterations or
conversions to the appliance, would be
unauthorised and could be dangerous.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for damage resulting from improper or
incorrect use of the appliance.
~ This dishwasher is not intended for
use by persons (including children)
with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of
experience and knowledge, unless they
are supervised whilst using it or they
have been shown how to use it
correctly by a person responsible for
their safety.
~ This appliance is not a toy! To avoid
the risk of injury, keep children well
away and do not allow them to play in
or around the dishwasher, or to use the
controls. They will not understand the
potential dangers posed by it. They
should be supervised whenever you
are working in the kitchen. There is a
danger that children playing might shut
themselves in the dishwasher.
~ Older children may only use the
dishwasher when its operation has
been clearly explained to them and
they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
~ Keep children away from
detergents. Dishwasher detergents
contain irritant and corrosive
ingredients which can cause burning in
the mouth, nose and throat if
swallowed, or inhibit breathing. Keep
children away from the dishwasher
when the door is open. There could still
be detergent residues in the cabinet.
Consult a doctor immediately if your
child has swallowed or inhaled
detergent.

Caring for the environment
Energy saving washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in its use of water and
electricity. You can make the most of
your appliance by following these tips:
^ For most economical dishwashing
make full use of the baskets without
overloading the dishwasher.
^ Choose the programme to suit the
type of crockery being washed and
the degree of soiling.
^ Select the Energy save programme
for energy-saving dishwashing.
^ If your household water system is
suitable, this dishwasher can be
connected to a hot water supply.
Select Without heater when
washing lightly to normally soiled
dishes.
The water will not be heated in this
programme. However, because the
water is not heated, drying results
may not match those of other
programmes.
^ Follow the detergent manufacturer's
recommendations on detergent
dosage.
^ When using powder or liquid
detergent you can use 1/3 less
detergent if baskets are only half full.
15
Before using for the first time
To open the door
To close the door
^ Push the baskets right in.
^ Then close the door firmly, making
sure that the catch engages.
The door will then close automatically.
,Do not put your hand inside the
door as it is closing: you may catch
your fingers. Danger of injury.
At the end of programmes with a drying
phase (see "Programme chart"), the
door will open automatically a little in
order to help the drying process.
This function can be deactivated (see
Settings menu, Drying plus).
^ Pull the handle.
If the door is opened during operation
all functions are automatically

18
Before using for the first time
Miele branded products are available
from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or via the internet at
www.miele-shop.com.
Before using the appliance for
the first time you require:
– Approx. 1 kg dishwasher salt,
^ Set the water softener unit of the
dishwasher to the water hardness
level of the water which is supplied
from the external water softening
system.
If you do not know what this is, then
set the value at 1.4 mmol/l (8 °d) (see
Settings menu !, External water
softening system).
– Domestic dishwasher detergent,
Filling the salt reservoir
– Rinse aid formulated for domestic
dishwashers.
In order to achieve good cleaning
results, the dishwasher needs to
operate with soft water. Hard water
results in the build-up of calcium
deposits on crockery and in the
dishwasher.
Mains water with a hardness level
higher than 0.7 mmol/l (4°d – German
scale) needs to be softened. This takes
place automatically in the integrated
softener unit.
The softener unit is suitable for a water
hardness level of up to 12.6 mmol/l
(70 °d). It requires dishwasher salt.
Every dishwasher is tested at the
factory.
There will be residual water in the
appliance from this test. It is not an
indication that it has been used
previously.
This dishwasher is fitted with a water
softener sensor which automatically
sets the water softener unit for the
local water hardness level.
External water softening
system
If your dishwasher is connected to an
external water softening system which
uses salt to reactivate, you will still need
to programme the dishwasher to the
correct water hardness level to achieve
good cleaning results.
If you use combination products
which have salt in them in your
dishwasher, such as "3 in 1" or
"4 in 1" products, you should still
add salt in order to achieve optimum
results and to ensure that the water
softener continues to function.
Selecting the Combi tabs option
reduces salt consumption to
between 1/3 and 1/4 of the normal
amount. (See Settings menu !,
Detergent type).
19
Before using for the first time
You can check the water hardness level
measured by the water softener sensor
in the display (see Settings menu !,
Water hardness).
^ When filling the salt reservoir only
open the door halfway to ensure
that all the salt gets into the reservoir.
If the water in your area is very soft
and constantly lower than
0.7 mmol/l (4 °d - German scale)
you do not need to add salt. The
insufficient salt message will be
deactivated automatically.
,Inadvertently filling the salt
reservoir with powder or liquid
dishwasher detergent will damage
the water softener. Make sure you
have picked up the correct packet
of dishwasher salt before filling the
salt reservoir!
^ Press the button on the lid of the salt
reservoir in the direction of the arrow
until the flap springs open.
,Only use special coarse grained
dishwasher salt for reactivation. Do
not use other salts such as cooking
salt, agricultural grade or gritting
salt. These may contain insoluble
additives which can impair the
functioning of the water softener.
^ Lift up the funnel.
20
Before using for the first time
"Insufficient salt" message
Do not fill the salt reservoir with
water.
^ Fill the salt reservoir with dishwasher
salt for reactivation when the
Insufficient salt message appears.
(If it appears during a programme,
wait until the end of the programme).
^ Confirm with OK.
The "Insufficient salt" message will go
out.
^ Add salt only until the reservoir is full
or until water runs out of the opening.
The salt reservoir holds approx. 1 kg
of salt, depending on the brand
used.
Do not add any more than 1 kg of
salt.
As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced
water may overflow.
^ Clean any excess salt from around
the reservoir opening, and then close
the flap.
After the salt reservoir has been filled,
the "Insufficient salt" message may still
appear in the display if the salt
concentration has not yet reached the
correct level.
If this is the case, confirm again with
OK.
The insufficient salt message will not
appear if the dishwasher has been
programmed for a water hardness level
of less than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d - German
scale).
,After refilling the salt reservoir,
run the Quick wash programme immediately (without any crockery in
the dishwasher, and without
selecting the Turbo extra option) to
remove any traces of salt from the
cabinet.
^ After refilling the salt reservoir, run
the Quick wash programme immediately (without any crockery in the
dishwasher, and without selecting the
Turbo extra option) to remove any
traces of salt from the cabinet.
21
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Rinse aid is necessary to ensure water
does not cling and leave marks on
crockery during the drying phase and
helps crockery dry faster after it has
been washed.
Rinse aid is poured into the storage
reservoir and the amount set is
dispensed automatically.
If you only ever use combination
products containing rinse aid in your
dishwasher, you do not need to add
rinse aid.
Adding rinse aid
,Inadvertently filling the rinse aid
reservoir with powder or liquid
detergent will damage to the
reservoir. Only pour rinse aid
formulated for domestic
dishwashers into the reservoir.
Alternatively, it is possible to use
– Household vinegar with a max. 5%
acid content
or
– Liquid citric acid up to 10% acid
content.
The resulting rinsing and drying quality
will not, however, be as good as when
rinse aid is used.
,Do not use vinegar with a higher
acid content (e.g. vinegar essence
25% acid). This would damage the
dishwasher.
22
^ Press the button on the lid of the
rinse aid reservoir in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
Before using for the first time
"Rinse aid low" message
When the Rinse aid low message
appears, the reservoir contains
sufficient rinse aid for 2 - 3 programmes
only.
^ Add rinse aid in plenty of time.
If the "2 in 1" or "Combi tab function
has been selected, the "Rinse aid
low" message will not appear (see
"Settings menu J, Detergent type").
^ Confirm with OK.
^ Add rinse aid only until it is visible in
the opening.
The "Rinse aid low" message will go
out.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
110 ml.
^ Close the flap firmly so that it clicks
into place. Otherwise water can enter
the rinse aid reservoir during a
programme.
^ Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring
during the next programme.
You can adjust the rinse aid dosage
for best results (see Settings menu J,
Rinse aid).
23
Loading the dishwasher
Note
Remove coarse food residues from
crockery.
There is no need to rinse items under
running water.
,Do not wash items soiled with
ash, sand, wax, lubricating grease
or paint in the dishwasher.
These substances will damage the
dishwasher.
Crockery can be loaded anywhere in
the baskets, but the following notes
should be observed:
– Do not place crockery and cutlery
inside other pieces where they may
be concealed.
– Load the crockery so that water can
access all surfaces. This ensures
that they get properly cleaned.
– Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
– Hollow items such as cups, glasses,
pans, etc. must be inverted in the
basket.
– Tall, narrow, hollow items, e.g.
champagne glasses, should be
placed in the centre of the basket to
ensure better water coverage.
24
– Wide based items should be placed
at an angle so that water can run off
them freely.
– The spray arms must not be blocked
by items which are too tall or hang
through the baskets.
If in doubt, test for free movement by
manually rotating the spray arms.
– Make sure that small items cannot
fall through the holders in the
baskets. Small items, e.g. lids,
should therefore be placed in the
cutlery tray or cutlery basket
(depending on model).
Some foodstuffs may contain natural
dyes, e.g. carrots, tomatoes or
ketchup. Plastic items in the
dishwasher may discolour if large
quantities of these foodstuffs find
their way into the appliance on the
crockery. The stability of plastic
items is not affected by this
discolouration.
Loading the dishwasher
Items not suitable for
dishwashers:
– Wooden cutlery and crockery or
items with wooden parts: these may
discolour and fade. The glue used in
these items is not dishwasher-proof
and wooden handles may come
loose after being washed in a
dishwasher.
– Craft items, antiques, valuable vases
and decorative glassware are also
not suitable for dishwashers.
– Plastic items which are not heat
resistant: the high temperatures in
the dishwasher may cause them to
melt or lose shape.
We recommend:
– When purchasing new crockery and
cutlery, make sure they are
dishwasher-proof.
– If delicate glassware is washed in the
dishwasher ensure that only very low
temperatures are used (see
programme chart), or a special
glass-care programme is used
(depending on model). This will
reduce the risk of clouding.
– If in doubt, wash delicate glassware
by hand.
Please note
– Colours painted over a glaze may
fade after a number of washes.
Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may still be damp or
spotted at the end of a programme,
where water has not run off smoothly. It
may need to be rubbed dry with a soft
cloth.
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. Do not wash
delicate glassware, or glassware
containing lead crystal in a
dishwasher.
Silver which has been in contact with
foods containing sulphur can discolour.
These include egg yolk, onions,
mayonnaise, mustard, pulses, fish, fish
brine and marinades.
– Copper, brass, tin and aluminium
items may discolour or become matt.
,Aluminium components (e.g.
grease filters) must not be cleaned
with caustic alkaline commercial or
industrial cleaning agents. These
may damage the material, or in
extreme cases, cause a severe
chemical reaction. See section
"Adding detergent" for information
on suitable detergents.

Operation
Detergent
,Only use detergents formulated
for domestic dishwashers. Do not
use washing-up liquid.
Miele branded dishwasher cleaning
products are available from the Miele
Spare Parts Department or via the
internet at www.miele-shop.com.
Active ingredients
Modern detergents contain various
active ingredients, the most important
of which are:
A variety of combination products is
also available (see "Settings !,
Detergent type").
In addition to detergent, combi tabs
contain rinse aid and salt substitutes.
Combi tabs are available as "3 in 1" or
when they also contain other
components such as glass and
stainless steel protective additives and
enhanced cleaning power, as "4 in 1",
"5 in 1" etc.
Refer to the manufacturer's packaging as
to whether the combi tabs are suitable for
the water hardness level in your area.
Please note that the cleaning and
drying results of tab detergents can
vary greatly.
– Phosphates to prevent calcification.
– Alkalis to aid removal of dried on
soiling.
– Enzymes to break down starch and
dissolve protein.
– Oxygen based bleaching agents to
remove coloured stains (e.g. tea,
coffee, tomato sauce).
Most dishwasher detergents contain
phosphate and are mildly alkaline with
enzymes and oxygen based bleaching
agents. Phosphate free products are
rare.
Types of detergent:
– Powder and liquid gel detergents.
These detergents allow you to adjust
the amount dispensed according to
the amount of load and level of
soiling.
– Tab detergents. These are suitable
for most levels of soiling.
34
For optimum cleaning and drying
results use Miele dishwasher
detergent and add Miele salt and
Miele rinse aid separately.
Dispensing
^ Follow the dosage recommended on
the packaging.
^ Unless directed otherwise, use one
detergent tab or add 20 to 30 ml in
compartment II, depending on the
level of soiling.
With very heavy soiling you can also
add a small amount of detergent to
compartment l (see "Programme
chart").
^ Do not use tabs with the Quick wash
programme, as they will not dissolve
properly.
Failure to dispense the
recommended amount of detergent
may impair cleaning results.
Operation
,Avoid inhalation of powder
detergents and do not ingest
dishwasher detergent. Dishwasher
detergents contain irritant or
corrosive ingredients which can
cause burning in the nose, mouth
and throat if swallowed, or inhibit
breathing. Consult a doctor immediately if detergent has been
swallowed or inhaled.
Keep detergent and other household
agents out of the reach of children at
all times. Keep children away from the
dishwasher when the door is open.
There could still be detergent residues
in the cabinet. To avoid the danger of
children coming into contact with the
dishwasher detergent, only add
detergent just before starting the
programme and close the door,
activating the child safety lock (if your
dishwasher is fitted with one).
Adding detergent
The flap is always open at the end of a
programme.
^ Add the required amount of
detergent and close the flap.
^ Make sure that the detergent
packaging is properly closed after
use to avoid it getting damp and
becoming lumpy.
For information
Compartment I holds max. 10 ml,
Compartment II holds max. 50 ml.

Operation
Starting a programme
Time display
^ Select the Start option.
The duration of the programme
selected appears in hours and minutes
in the Time display before the
programme begins. During the
programme, the time left until the end of
the programme is displayed.
The message Please close the door
will appear.
If you want to select a different
programme or make other changes,
select Back and cancel the programme
with the Cancel function.
^ Start the programme by closing the
door.
The In-operation indicator light comes
on to show that a programme has been
started.
If you open the door Add-an-item will
appear in the display.
As long as this prompt is showing,
crockery can be added without
compromising the wash results.
A programme can only be cancelled
in the first few minutes. Otherwise
the programme must continue to the
end so that important programme
stages (e.g. reactivating the water
softener) are not omitted.
38
The time displayed may vary with the
same programme. This could be due to
the water temperature at each intake,
the reactivation cycle, the amount of
crockery and how dirty it is.
When a programme is selected for the
first time, the display shows an average
time for a cold water intake.
The times shown in the Programme
chart refer to standard test loads and
temperatures.
Each time a programme is run, the
electronic unit adjusts the programme
duration according to the amount of
crockery and the temperature of the
incoming water.
To save energy, the time display
goes out after a few minutes if you do
not touch any buttons during this
time. Press any button (apart from the
Off button V) to switch the time
display back on again.
Operation
At the end of a programme
Unloading the dishwasher
At the end of a programme the in
operation indicator light flashes on and
off slowly. It is visible even with the door
closed.
It will stop flashing one hour after the
programme has finished.
Dishes tend to break and chip more
easily when they are hot.
Allow the dishes to cool until they are
comfortable enough to handle before
unloading them.
If the message Programme finished or
Drying plus comes up in the display,
and the door has opened slightly, this
indicates that the programme has
finished.
You can now empty the dishwasher.
,If you have deselected the automatic door opening function (see
Settings menu, Drying plus), but
would still like to open the door at
the end of the programme, then
make sure that you open the door
fully. Otherwise steam from the
dishwasher could damage the edge
of the worktop because the fan is no
longer running.
Switching off
At the end of a programme:
^ Open the door.
^ Switch the dishwasher off with the Off
button V.
The dishwasher will continue to use
electricity until it is switched off with
the Off button V.
If you open the door fully after switching
off, the dishes will cool much faster.
First unload the lower basket, then the
upper basket and finally the cutlery tray
(depending on model).
This will prevent water drops from the
upper basket and cutlery tray from
falling onto the dishes in the lower
basket.
Interrupting a programme
A programme is interrupted as soon as
the door is opened.
When the door is closed again, the
programme will continue from the point
it was at before the door was opened.
,Water in the dishwasher may be
hot. Danger of scalding.
Only open the door if absolutely
necessary and exercise extreme
caution when doing so. Before
closing the door again, leave it ajar
for approx. 20 seconds. This will
enable the temperature in the wash
cabinet to settle. Then close the
door firmly, making sure that the
catch engages.
If the dishwasher is not going to be
used for a longer period of time, e. g.
whilst on holiday, the stopcock should
be turned off.

between 15 minutes and 24 hours can be selected. The delay
start time is set in 15 minute steps.
,When using the Delay start function, make sure that
the detergent compartment is dry before adding
detergent. Wipe dry with a cloth if necessary. If the
compartment is wet, powder detergent can become lumpy
and stick to the dispenser, with the result that it is not fully
dispensed.
Do not use liquid detergent when selecting Delay start, as
it can run into the dishwasher before it is required.

Cleaning and care
Check your dishwasher regularly
(approx. every 4 - 6 months). This
way faults and problems can be
avoided.
Miele branded cleaning and
conditioning products are available
from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or via the internet at
www.miele-shop.com.
,External surfaces of the
dishwasher are susceptible to
scratching.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the
outer surfaces.
Cleaning the wash cabinet
The wash cabinet is largely
self-cleaning, provided that the correct
amount of detergent is always used.
Cleaning the door and the door
seal
^ Wipe the door seals regularly with a
damp cloth to remove food deposits.
^ When the dishwasher is being
loaded, food and drink residues may
drip onto the sides of the dishwasher
door.
These surfaces are outside the wash
cabinet and are not accessed by
water from the spray arms. Any
soiling should be wiped off these
surfaces before the door is closed.
Cleaning the reflector panel
The reflector panel for the In-operation
indicator light is situated in the
coverplate underneath the worktop.
^ The reflector panel should only be
wiped with a damp cloth or a suitable
cleaning agent designed for use on
plastic.
If, however, there are limescale or
grease deposits in the cabinet, these
can be removed with a proprietary
dishwasher cleaner or conditioner.
43
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the control panel and
door front
,Remove any soiling immediately.
If not, it might become impossible to
remove and could cause the outer
surface to alter or discolour.
^ The control panel should only be
wiped with a damp cloth.
^ Clean the front using a damp Miele
microfibre E-cloth or with a sponge
and a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid. Then dry with a
soft cloth.
To avoid damaging external
surfaces, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners.
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– sharp metal scrapers.
44
Cleaning and care
Checking the filters in the
wash cabinet
Cleaning the filters
^ Switch the dishwasher off.
The filter combination in the base of the
wash cabinet retains coarse soil from
the suds solution, preventing it
accessing the circulation system and
re-entering the cabinet through the
spray arms.
,This dishwasher must not be
used without all the filters in place.
Collection of coarse soil may cause the
filters to clog. The level of soiling and
time it takes before the filters need
cleaning will vary depending on use.
The message Check filters will appear
in the display after every 40 programme
cycles (factory default setting).
You can set the interval for this
message to appear to between 30
and 60 programme cycles (see
"Settings menu !, Check filters").
^ Turn the handle anti-clockwise to
release the filter combination a.
^ Lift the filter combination out of the
dishwasher b. Remove any coarse
particles and rinse the filter well
under running water. Use a nylon
brush if necessary.
^ Check the filter combination.
^ Clean it, if necessary.
^ Then confirm the message with OK.
The display will change to show the
main menu.
45
Cleaning and care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened:
^ Press catches a together in the
direction of the arrows as shown,
and open the filter b.
^ Rinse all the filters under running
water.
^ Then close the flap so that the catch
engages.
46
^ Replace the filter combination so that
it lies flat in the base of the wash
cabinet.
^ Then turn the handle clockwise, until
the arrows line up, to lock the filter
combination in place.
,Take care when you are fitting
the filter combination that it is
secured in position correctly.
Otherwise coarse soil could get into
the circulation system and cause a
blockage.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the spray arms
^ Remove the lower basket.
Particles of food can get stuck in the
spray arm jets and bearings. The spray
arms should therefore be inspected
and cleaned regularly (approx. every
4 - 6 months).
^ Switch the dishwasher off.
Remove the spray arms as follows:
^ Take out the cutlery tray (if your
dishwasher is fitted with one).
^ Push the top spray arm upwards to
engage the inner ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm.
^ Push the middle spray arms upwards
a to engage the ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm b.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
^ Use a pointed object to push food
particles into the spray arm jets.
^ Rinse thoroughly under running
water.
^ Replace the spray arms and check
that they rotate freely.

Maintenance
Cleaning the water inlet filter
A filter is incorporated in the screw
connection of the valve on the water
inlet hose. The filter must be cleaned
when dirty, otherwise insufficient water
flows into the wash cabinet.
,The plastic housing of the water
connection contains an electrical
component. It must not be dipped in
water.
Recommendation
If the mains water contains a large
amount of insoluble substances, we
recommend fitting a large-area filter in
the connection between the stopcock
and the water inlet hose threaded
union. This filter is available from the
Miele Spares Parts dept.
Cleaning the filter:
^ Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply. Switch off at the mains
socket and withdraw the plug.
^ Close the stopcock.
^ Unscrew the inlet hose.
58
^ Carefully remove the seal.
^ Withdraw the filter using pointed
pliers and rinse clean under running
water.
^ Replace the filter and seal, making
sure they are sitting correctly.
^ Reconnect the inlet hose to the
stopcock, making sure it goes on
correctly and is not cross-threaded.
^ Turn on the stopcock gradually to
test for leaks. If there is a leak, the
inlet hose might not be on securely,
or it may have been screwed on at an
angle. Unscrew and reconnect the
water inlet valve correctly.
Maintenance
Cleaning the drain pump and
non-return valve
If the water has not been pumped away
at the end of a programme the drain
pump or the non-return valve might be
blocked. They are, however, easy to
clean.
^ Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply. Switch off at the mains
socket and withdraw the plug.
^ Take the filter combination out of the
wash cabinet (see "Cleaning and
care - Cleaning the filters in the wash
cabinet").
^ Scoop the water out of the cabinet
using a suitable container or utensil.
The drain pump is situated under the
non-return valve (see arrow).
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
drain pump (watch out for glass or
bone splinters which are particularly
difficult to detect and could cause
injury). Turn the drain pump impeller
by hand to check that there are no
more obstructions. You will feel a little
resistance when you turn the
impeller.
^ Carefully replace the non-return valve
and secure it with the catch.
,Ensure that the catch engages
correctly.
^ Press the catch for the non-return
valve inwards a.
^ Lift out the non-return valve b, and
rinse well under running water.
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
non-return valve.

,All electrical work must be
carried out by a suitably qualified
and competent person, in
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations (BS 7671
in the UK).
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. Please ensure the connection
data quoted on the data plate match
the household mains supply.
Connection should be made via a
suitable switched socket which is easily
accessible after installation.
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a suitable residual current device
(RCD). Contact a qualified electrician
for advice.
Do not connect via an extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).

WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE
MUST BE EARTHED
Plumbing
The Miele waterproof anti-leak
system
Providing your dishwasher has been
installed correctly, the Miele waterproof
anti-leak system will protect you from
water damage throughout its lifetime.
Connection to the water
supply
,Water in the dishwasher must
not be used as drinking water.
– The dishwasher may be connected
to a cold or hot water supply, max.
60 °C. We would only recommend
connection to a hot water supply if it
is economical, e.g. a solar powered
supply. When connected to a hot
water supply all programme stages
which would otherwise be carried out
with cold water will be carried out
with hot water.
– This appliance is constructed to
comply with IEC/EN/DIN 61770 //
VDE 0700 Section 600, and may be
connected to a suitable supply
without an extra non-return valve if
national regulations permit.
– The water pressure (flow pressure at
the take-off point) must be between
30 and 1000 kPa (0.3 and 10 bar).
If the water pressure is lower than
this, the fault message Water inlet
fault will appear in the display (see
Problem solving guide).
If the water pressure is too high, a
pressure reducer valve must be
fitted.
,To avoid any damage to the
appliance, the dishwasher must only
be connected to a fully vented
plumbing system.
– The Without heater programme (if
available) requires a hot water
supply of between 45 °C (minimum)
and 60 °C (maximum).
The higher the water intake
temperature, the better the cleaning
and drying results.
– The inlet hose is approx. 1.5 m long.
A 1.5 metre long flexible metal
extension hose, pressure tested to
14,000 kPa/ 140 bar, is available as
an optional accessory if required.
– A stopcock with a 3/4" male thread
must be provided on site.
! The inlet hose must not be
shortened or damaged in any way
as it contains electrical components
(see illustration).
69
Plumbing
Drainage
Venting the drainage system
– The appliance drainage system is
fitted with a non-return valve, which
prevents dirty water from flowing
back into the dishwasher via the
drain hose.
If the on-site drain connection is
situated lower than the guide path for
the bottom basket rollers in the open
door, the drainage system must be
vented. Otherwise a siphoning effect
during a programme can cause the
appliance to empty itself of water.
– The dishwasher is supplied with
approx. 1.5 m of flexible drain hose
with an internal diameter of 22 mm.
– The drain hose can be extended
using a connection piece to attach a
further length of hose.
The drainage length must not be
longer than 4 m, and the delivery
head must not exceed 1 m.
To vent it:
^ Open the dishwasher door fully.
– If the hose is to be directly fitted to
the drainage outlet on site, use the
hose clip supplied (see installation
diagram).
– The hose can be directed to the left
or the right of the appliance.
– The on-site connector for the drain
hose can be adapted to different
widths of hose. If the connector
protrudes too far into the drain hose,
it will need to be shortened.
Otherwise the drain hose may
become blocked.
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
,Make sure that there are no
kinks in the hose, and that it is not
squashed or stretched.
70
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
^ Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash cabinet.
