Warning and Safety instructions
This appliance complies with all relevant statutory safety
requirements. Improper use of the appliance can, however,
present a risk of both personal injury and material damage.
To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the appliance,
please read these instructions carefully before installing and
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 appliance is designed for domestic use and for use in similar
environments by guests in hotel or motel rooms, bed & breakfasts
and other typical living quarters. This does not include
common/shared facilities or commercial facilities within hotels,
motels or bed & breakfasts.
~ The appliance is not suitable for outdoor use.
~ The dishwasher is designed exclusively for cleaning domestic
crockery and cutlery.
Any other usage is at the owner's risk. Miele cannot be held liable
for damage resulting from incorrect or improper use or operation.
~ This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
~ Young children must not be allowed to use this appliance.
~ Older children may only use the appliance when its operation has
been clearly explained to them and they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
~ Cleaning may only be carried out by older children under the
supervision of an adult.
~ Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play
with the appliance. Keep small children away from the appliance at
all times to avoid the risk of injury. There is the risk that children may
lock themselves in the dishwasher.
~ Keep detergent and other household agents out of the reach of
children at all times. Dishwasher detergents contain irritants and
corrosive ingredients which can cause burning in the mouth, nose
and throat if swallowed, or inhibit breathing. Keep children away

Consult a doctor immediately if your child has swallowed or inhaled
detergent.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before installation, check the dishwasher for visible signs of
damage. Under no circumstances should you use a damaged
dishwasher. A damaged dishwasher could be dangerous.
~ The dishwasher must only be plugged into the electricity supply
via a suitable switched socket. The electrical socket must be easily
accessible after the dishwasher has been installed so that it can be
disconnected from the electricity supply at any time (See "Electrical
connection").
~ There must be no electrical sockets behind the dishwasher.
Danger of overheating and fire risk if the dishwasher were to be
pushed up against a plug.
~ The dishwasher must not be installed under a cooktop. The high
radiant temperatures which are sometimes generated by a cooktop
could damage the dishwasher. For the same reason, it should not
be installed next to open fires or other appliances which give off
heat, such as heaters etc.
~ Do not connect the dishwasher to the mains supply until it has
been fully installed, including the adjustment of the door springs.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Before connecting the appliance, check 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 appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing
system. 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 via a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead. These do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
~ Do not install the dishwasher in a room where there is a risk of
frost occuring. Frozen hoses may burst or split, and the reliability of
the electronic unit may be impaired at temperatures below freezing
point.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The plastic housing of the water connection contains an electrical
valve. The housing must not be dipped in water.
~ There are live wires in the water inlet hose. Never cut the water
inlet hose, even if it is too long.
~ The integrated Waterproof System offers protection from water
damage, provided the following conditions are met:
– The dishwasher is correctly installed and plumbed in.
– The appliance is properly maintained and parts are replaced
where it can be seen that this is necessary.
– The tap has been turned off when the appliance is not used for a
longer period of time (e.g. during holidays).
The Waterproof system will work even if the appliance is switched
off. However, the appliance must remain connected to the electricity
supply.
~ A damaged dishwasher could be dangerous. If the dishwasher
gets damaged, switch it off at the mains immediately and call Miele.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ 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.
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
original spare parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety
of the appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
~ Always disconnect the dishwasher from the electrical supply for
maintenance work (switch off at the wall socket and remove the
plug).
~ If the connection cable is damaged, it must be replaced by a
Miele approved service technician only in order to protect the user
from danger.
~ In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance 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 warranty.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct installation
~ The dishwasher must be installed and connected in compliance
with the installation instructions.
~ Be careful when installing the dishwasher. Wear
protective gloves to avoid injury on any sharp metal
components.
~ The dishwasher must be correctly aligned to ensure problem-free
operation.
~ In order to ensure stability, built-under and integrated
dishwashers must only be installed under a continuous worktop
which is secured to adjacent cabinetry.
~ If you want to convert your freestanding dishwasher to a
built-under ("U") model, you will need to order the appropriate
conversion kit. If you remove the existing plinth, you must replace it
with a U-model plinth. This is necessary to avoid the risk of injury
caused by protruding metal parts.
~ The door springs on either side need to be evenly adjusted. They
are correctly adjusted if the half-opened door (approx. 45° door
opening angle) remains in this position when it is released. The door

Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ Do not use solvents in the dishwasher. Danger of explosion!
~ Avoid inhalation of powder detergents. 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.
~ Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily as you could trip over
it.
~ Dishes can be very hot at the end of a programme.
Allow the dishes to cool until they are comfortable enough to handle
before unloading them.
~ Do not sit or lean on the opened door. This could cause the
dishwasher to tip and be damaged, and you could get injured.
~ Only use detergent and rinse aid formulated for domestic
dishwashers. Do not use washing-up liquid.
~ Do not use commercial or industrial detergents as these may
cause damage, and there is a risk of severe chemical reaction.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not fill the rinse aid reservoir with powder or liquid detergent.
This will cause serious damage to the reservoir.
~ Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir with powder or liquid
dishwasher detergent will damage the water softener.
~ Miele recommends using specially designed dishwasher salt to
maximize the performance of your dishwasher and to prevent a
build-up of calcium and limescale in the dishwasher cabinet,
especially if you live in a hard water area. Dishwasher salt can be
purchased online at www.miele-shop.com (depending on country)
or directly from Miele.
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.
~ In an appliance with a cutlery basket (depending on model)
cutlery is cleaned and dried more efficiently if placed in the basket
with the handles downwards. However, to avoid the risk of injury,
place knives, forks and other utensils with sharp points with the
handles upwards.
~ Plastic items which cannot withstand being washed in hot water,
such as disposable plastic containers, or plastic cutlery and
crockery, should not be cleaned in the dishwasher. The high
temperatures in the dishwasher may cause them to melt or lose
shape.
~ On models with "Delay start", make sure that the dispenser is dry
before adding detergent. Wipe dry if necessary. Detergent will clog
if poured into a damp dispenser and may not be thoroughly
dispensed.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts and accessories with this
dishwasher. If spare parts or accessories from other manufacturers
are used, this will invalidate the warranty, and Miele cannot accept
liability.
Disposal of your old dishwasher
~ Make the door lock inoperative so that children cannot
accidentally shut themselves in. Remove or destroy the locking
bracket of the door lock.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

Caring for the environment
Energy saving dishwashing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in its use of water and
electricity. You can make the most of
your appliance by following these tips:
^ If your household water system is
suitable, this dishwasher can be
connected to a hot water supply for
further economies. If the water is
heated by solar panels, for example,
this would be energy efficient.
However, if your water is heated by
electricity we would recommend
connection to cold water.
^ 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.
This programme is the most efficient
in terms of energy and water
consumption for cleaning normally
soiled crockery.
^ 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.
18
Before using for the first time
To open the door
To close the door
^ Push the baskets right in.
^ Then raise the door upwards until the
catch engages.
The door will then close automatically.
,Do not put your hand inside the

Safety lock
Use the safety lock to prevent children
opening the dishwasher door.
At the end of the 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 - AutoOpen).
^ Reach under the handle and pull the

Before using for the first time
Water softener
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).
– The water softener requires
reactivation salt.
Depending on the water hardness
level (ß 21 °d), dishwasher salt is not
required if combination tablets are
being used (see "Detergent").
– The dishwasher must be
programmed for the water hardness
in your area.
– Your local water authority will be able
to advise you of the water hardness
level in your area.
Where the water hardness fluctuates
e.g. between 1.4 - 3.1 mmol/l (8 - 17 °d
German scale), always programme the
dishwasher to the higher value
(3.1 mmol/l in this example).
In the event of a fault, it will help the
service technician if you know the
hardness of your local water supply.
^ Enter the water hardness:
mmol/l or °d
24
The dishwasher is set at the factory
for a hardness level of 0.2 mmol/l
(1 °d).
If this setting corresponds to the
hardness of your water, you do not
need to do anything more.
Nevertheless, you will need to
programme the water hardness level for
your area. See following section.
Before using for the first time
Programming the water hardness
level
^ Switch the dishwasher on with the On

Before using for the first time
Before using the appliance for
the first time, you require:
– approx. 1 kg of dishwasher salt,
– domestic dishwasher detergent,
– rinse aid formulated for domestic
dishwashers.
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.
Filling the salt reservoir
If the water in your area is very soft
and constantly lower than
0.7 mmol/l (4 °d), you do not need
to add salt.
The water softener must, however,
be programmed to correspond to
the water hardness level in your
area.
,Inadvertently filling the salt
reservoir with powder or liquid
dishwasher detergent will damage
the water softener.
,Miele recommends using
specially designed dishwasher salt
to maximize the performance of your
dishwasher and to prevent a
build-up of calcium and limescale in
the dishwasher cabinet, especially if
you live in a hard water area.
Dishwasher salt can be purchased
online at www.miele-shop.com or
directly from Miele. 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.
26
Before using for the first time
^ When filling the salt reservoir, only
open the door halfway to ensure
that all the salt gets into the reservoir.
^ Press the button on the lid of the
rinse aid reservoir in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
Do not fill the reservoir with water.
^ 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.
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.
^ Lift up the funnel.
^ Run the Quick wash programme immediately (without any crockery in
the dishwasher, and without selecting
the Turbo function) to remove any
traces of salt from the cabinet.
27
Before using for the first time
Salt indicator
^ Fill the salt reservoir with dishwasher
salt for reactivation when the
F 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.
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 salt indicator is deactivated when
the dishwasher has been programmed
to a water hardness level below
0.7 mmol/l (4 °d).
,Run the Quick wash programme
immediately (without any crockery in
the dishwasher, and without
selecting the Turbo function) to
remove any traces of salt from the
cabinet.
28
If you only ever use combination
products containing salt and rinse
aid in your dishwasher, you can
switch the indicators off if you wish
(see "Settings ! - Switching off the
refill indicators").
Ensure that you refill salt and rinse
aid and switch on the refill indicators
again if you are not using
combination products.
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Adding 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.
,Inadvertently filling the rinse aid
reservoir with powder or liquid
detergent will damage the reservoir.
Only pour rinse aid formulated for
domestic dishwashers into the
reservoir.
Alternatively, it is possible to use
^ Press the button on the lid of the
rinse aid reservoir in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
– 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.
If you only ever use combination
products containing rinse aid in your
dishwasher, you do not need to add
rinse aid.
29
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid indicator
When the ( Add rinse aid message
appears, the reservoir contains
sufficient rinse aid for 2 - 3 programmes
only.
^ Add rinse aid in plenty of time.
^ Confirm with OK.
The "Add rinse aid" message will go
out.
^ Add rinse aid only until it is visible in
the opening.
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 - Rinse aid).
30
If you only ever use combination
products containing salt and rinse
aid in your dishwasher, you can
switch the indicators off if you wish
(see "Settings ! - Switching off the
refill indicators").
Ensure that you refill salt and rinse
aid and switch on the refill indicators
again if you are not using
combination products.
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 materials will cause damage
to 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.
– 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
tomato sauce. 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.
– 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.
31
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 can melt or lose shape.
– Copper, brass, tin and aluminium
items may discolour or become matt.
– Colours painted over a glaze
may fade after a number of washes.
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. Do not wash
delicate glassware, or glassware
containing lead crystal in a
dishwasher.
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.
– Wash particularly delicate glassware
by hand.
Please note
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. It may need to be rubbed dry
with a soft cloth.
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.
,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.

^ Arrange the cutlery in the tray as
shown.
To make unloading much easier,
cutlery should be grouped in zones,
one for knives, one for forks, one for
spoons, etc.
Spoon heads should be placed in
contact with at least one of the serrated
retainers on the base of the cutlery tray
to ensure that water runs off them
freely.
The upper spray arm must not be
blocked by items which are too big
(e.g. cake slices).
The side sections of the tray can be
moved into the middle to accommodate
tall items of crockery in the upper
basket.
You can use the yellow slide to adjust
the height of the middle section of the
cutlery tray to make more room for
large items of cutlery, such as serving
spoons and ladles.
39
Loading the dishwasher
Cutlery basket (depending on model)
The cutlery basket can be placed
anywhere on the front rows of spikes in
the lower basket.
^ Fit it onto the cutlery basket if
required.
^ In an appliance with a cutlery basket
(depending on model) cutlery is
cleaned and dried more efficiently if
placed in the basket with the handles
downwards.
However, to avoid the risk of injury,
knives, forks and other utensils with
sharp points must be placed with the
handles upwards.
^ Place small items of cultlery in the
individual slots on three sides of the
cutlery basket.
Cutlery insert for the cutlery basket
Use the insert supplied for heavily
soiled spoons.
The insert separates the items so that
they can be more easily accessed by
water.
40
^ Insert cutlery with the handles facing
downwards, and distribute them
evenly along the insert.
Operation
Detergent
,Only use detergents formulated
for domestic dishwashers. Do not
use washing-up liquid.
Active ingredients
Modern detergents contain various
active ingredients, the most important
of which are:
– Phosphates to prevent calcification.
– Alkalis to aid removal of dried on
soiling.
– Enzymes to break down starch and
loosen 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.
You can also buy combination products
(see "Additional functions DetergentAgent", if applicable).
In addition to detergent, these products
contain rinse aid and salt substitutes.
They 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 "5 in 1", "7 in 1",
"All in 1", etc.
Refer to the manufacturer's packaging
as to whether combination products are
suitable for the water hardness level in
your area.
Please note that the cleaning and
drying results of combination
detergents can vary greatly.
For optimum cleaning and drying
results, use Miele dishwasher
detergent and add Miele salt and
Miele rinse aid separately.
Under certain circumstances
unsatisfactory washing and drying
results might be noticed when using
combination dishwasher detergents.
These products contain a combination
of detergent and rinse aid or detergent
and salt (2 in 1) or detergent, rinse aid
and salt (3 in 1). Drying results might
not be as good as expected or
residues or flecks might be left on
crockery. If results are still
unsatisfactory, even after seeking
advice from the detergent
manufacturer, we suggest that you
change to a different product or use a
traditional dishwasher detergent.
41
Operation
Dispensing
^ Follow the dosage recommended by
the manufacturer on the packaging.
^ Unless directed otherwise, use one
detergent tab or add 20 to 30 ml to
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").
^ Tabs may not dissolve completely
when the Quick wash 40 °C
programme is used.
42
Failure to dispense the
recommended amount of detergent
may impair cleaning results.
,Avoid inhalation of powder de-
tergents. 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).
Operation
Adding detergent
For information
Compartment I holds max. 10 ml,
Compartment II holds max. 50 ml.
There are markings in compartment II
to assist with dispensing: 20, 30. The
marks indicate a level of approx. 20 or
30 ml when the door is open in a
horizontal position.
^ Press the opening catch on the
detergent dispenser. The flap will
spring open.
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.

operates a cycle without heating to
rinse crockery if a complete
programme is not yet needed.
Pre-wash:
– Adds a pre-wash to the programme
cycle, for heavily soiled loads.
Soak:
– For loosening very stubborn food
residues from pots, pans and
casserole dishes.
If you are using powder dishwasher
detergent, add approx. 5 g to
compartment I.
Intensive lower basket:
– The Intensive lower basket option
allows you to clean heavily soiled
dishes in the lower basket while more
delicate items can be cleaned in the
upper basket.
This option increases the cleaning
performance in those programmes in
which it can be used.
Depending on the programme, the
duration can vary slightly.
The option selected is active for the

because of the water temperature at
each intake, the reactivation cycle, the
type of detergent and partly because of
the amount of crockery and how dirty it

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 takes the new conditions
into account, and calculates the time
required.
46
Operation
Standby
At the end of a programme
To save energy, the dishwasher
switches off automatically a few
minutes after the last time a sensor has
been pressed or at the end of a
programme.
If the message Programme finished or
AutoOpen comes up in the display,
and the door has opened slightly, this
indicates that the programme has
finished.
^ To switch the dishwasher back on,
touch the K sensor.
The Optimise standby function can be
deactivated if wished (see Settings Optimise standby). The dishwasher will
then switch off after 6 hours. This will
increase energy consumption.
If Optimise standby is switched on
and the clock display is selected
(see Settings ! menu - Time), the
clock will appear in Standby mode
for just a few minutes.
If salt or rinse aid needs to be
refilled, or if there is a fault, the
dishwasher will not switch off.
The drying fan will run for a few
minutes after the end of the Quick
wash programme.
You can now unload the dishwasher.
,If you have deselected the auto-
matic door opening function (see
Settings menu - AutoOpen), 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.
The refill indicators can be switched
off if you use combination products
and the dishwasher is supposed to
switch off despite there being no salt
or rinse aid (see "Settings - Refill
indicators").
However, a fault message cannot be
switched off.
47
Operation
Switching off
Interrupting a programme
At the end of a programme:
Operation is interrupted as soon as the
door is opened.
If the door is closed again, the
programme will continue from the point
it was at before the door was opened.
^ Switch the dishwasher off using the
On/Off sensor K.
The dishwasher will continue to use
electricity until it is switched off with
the K sensor.
The dishwasher will switch off
automatically after a few minutes.
If the dishwasher is not going to be
used for a longer period of time, e. g.
whilst on holiday, the tap should be
turned off.
Unloading the dishwasher
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 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.
48
,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 raise the
door upwards until the catch
engages.

between 15 minutes and 24 hours can be selected. The
Delay start time is set in 15-minute increments.
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.

Additional options
BrilliantLight
DetergentAgent
The dishwasher features interior
lighting.
The lighting will switch off automatically
if the door is open for more than
15 minutes.
For optimum cleaning results, the
dishwasher automatically adjusts the
programme sequence to the type of
detergent being used. Depending on
the programme, this can mean that the
running time and energy consumption
vary slightly.
The interior lighting can be switched off
permanently.
^ Lift the half-opened door up and
down quickly three times. When
doing this, open the door enough so
that the interior lighting switches on
and off.
After doing this, the interior lighting will
be switched off permanently.
^ To switch the interior lighting back
on, lift the half-opened door up and
down again quickly three times.
Follow the detergent manufacturer's
instructions on dosage.
The cleaning and drying
performance of different types of
detergent can vary enormously.
If you only ever use combination
products containing salt and rinse aid
in your dishwasher, you can switch the
indicators off if you wish (see "Settings Switching off the refill indicators"). The
DetergentAgent function will not be
affected by this.
Please make sure that if you start
using dishwasher salt and rinse aid
again, you switch the indicator lights
back on.
52
Cleaning and care
Check the condition of your
dishwasher regularly (approx. every
4 - 6 months). This way faults and
problems can be avoided.
,The outer surfaces of the
dishwasher are susceptible to
scratching.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the
outer surfaces.
Cleaning the wash cabinet
Cleaning the door and the door
seal
^ Wipe the door seal 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 to avoid the formation of
mould inside the wash cabinet.
The wash cabinet is largely
self-cleaning, provided that the correct
amount of detergent is always used.
If, however, there are limescale or
grease deposits in the cabinet, these
can be removed with the Original Miele
dishwasher conditioning agent
(available from Miele or at
www.miele-shop.com, depending on
country). Follow the dosage
recommended by the manufacturer on
the packaging.
If you only wash at low temperatures
(< 50 °C) over a long period of time,
organic deposits and unpleasant
odours can form in the machine. To
clean the wash cabinet and prevent the
formation of unpleasant odours, the
"Pots & pans 75 °C" programme should
be run at least once a month.
You should also clean the filters in the
wash cabinet on a regular basis.
53
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the door front
,Remove any soiling immediately.
If not, it might become impossible to
remove and could cause the outer
surface to alter or discolour.
^ Clean the front using a sponge, a
solution of warm water and a little
washing-up liquid. Wipe dry using a
soft cloth.
For cleaning, you can also use a
clean, damp microfibre cloth without
any cleaning agent.
To avoid damaging the outer surface,
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 cleaners,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive sponges and
brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– dirt erasers,
– sharp metal scrapers,
– steam cleaners.
54
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 50 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").
^ Check the filter combination.
^ Clean it, if necessary.
^ Turn the handle anti-clockwise to
release the filter combination a.
^ Take the filter combination out b,
remove any coarse particles and
rinse the filter well under running
water. Use a nylon brush if
necessary.
,Ensure that course soil doesn't
get into the circulation system and
cause a blockage.
^ Then confirm the message with OK.
The display will change to show the
programme selection menu.
55
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.
56
^ Replace the filter combination so that
it lies flat in the base of the wash
cabinet.
^ Then turn the handle clockwise until
both arrows point towards each
other. The filter combination is locked
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
will flow 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 tap and the
water inlet hose threaded union. This
filter is available from Miele.
^ Carefully remove the seal.
Cleaning the filter:
^ Reconnect the inlet hose to the tap,
making sure it goes on correctly and
is not cross-threaded.
^ Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply. Switch off at the mains
socket and withdraw the plug.
^ Close the tap.
^ Unscrew the inlet hose.
68
^ Withdraw the filter using pointed
pliers and rinse clean under running
water.
^ Replace the filter and seal, making
sure they are sitting correctly.
^ Turn on the tap 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.
Be careful not to damage any
delicate components when cleaning
the drain pump and the non-return
valve.
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
non-return valve.

Electrical connection
This dishwasher is supplied with a
mains cable and moulded plug ready
for connection to an AC single phase
supply, (230 V 50 Hz for NZ and
Australia) via a fused plug and suitable
switched socket.
,The electrical socket must be
easily accessible after the
dishwasher has been installed.
Do not connect the washing
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).
If the connection cable is damaged, it
must be replaced by a Miele approved
service technician only in order to
protect the user from danger.
Connection should be made via a
suitable switched socket which is easily
accessible. For extra safety, it is
advisable to install a suitable residual
current device (RCD).
The appliance must not be connected
to an isolated inverter which is
connected to a self-sufficient power
supply, e.g. solar power supply.
Voltage peaks when the appliance is
switched on can cause a safety
switch-off and the electronics may also
be damaged. The appliance must not
be operated in conjunction with
energy-saving plugs either as the
energy intake of the appliance is
reduced and it will overheat.
80
,Before connecting the
dishwasher, check that the
connection data on the data plate
(voltage and rated load) matches
the mains electricity supply. If in any
doubt, consult a qualified
electrician.
Technical data can be found on the
data plate on the right-hand side of the
door.
Water connection
The Miele Waterproof system
Provided that 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. 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, thus
saving time and energy costs.
– A warm water connection of at least
45 °C and a maximum of 60 °C
(temperature of incoming water) is
required for the use of the "Without
heater" programme (if available).
The higher the temperature of the
incoming water, the better the
cleaning and drying results will be.
– The inlet hose is approx. 1.5 m long.
A 1.5 m long flexible metal extension
hose, pressure tested to 14000 kPa/
140 bar, is available as an optional
accessory if required.
– A 3/4 " male thread must be provided
on site.
– The dishwasher is constructed to
comply with Australian regulations,
and may be connected to a suitable
supply without an extra non-return
valve if national regulations allow
this.
– 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.
After commissioning the appliance,
ensure that the water inlet does not
leak.
81
Water connection
,To avoid any damage to the
appliance, the dishwasher must only
be connected to a fully vented
plumbing system.
! The inlet hose must not be
shortened or damaged in any way
as it contains electrical components
(see illustration).
New hose sets supplied with the
appliance are to be used. Old hose
sets should not be reused.
82
Water connection
Connection to 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.
– 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.
After commissioning the appliance,
ensure that the water outlet does not
leak.
Venting the drainage system
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.
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.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
^ Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash cabinet.
