these operating instructions, for cleaning domestic crockery and
cutlery. Any other usage is not supported by the manufacturer and
could be dangerous.
 The appliance can only be used by people with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge,
if they are supervised whilst using it, or have been shown how to use
it in a safe way and recognise and understand the consequences of
incorrect operation.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
 Children under 8 years of age must be kept away from the appli‐
ance unless they are constantly supervised.
 Children 8 years and older may only use the dishwasher unsuper‐
vised if they have been shown how to use it safely and recognise
and understand the consequences of incorrect operation.
 Children must not be allowed to clean or maintain the appliance
unsupervised.
 Please supervise children in the vicinity of the dishwasher and do
not let them play with it. There is a danger that children playing
might shut themselves in the dishwasher.
 If the automatic door opening mechanism (depending on model)
is active keep young children away from the area in which the door

10
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
 Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause
considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance and re‐
pairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.
 A damaged dishwasher is dangerous. Check it for any recognisa‐
ble damage. Never install or attempt to use a damaged appliance.
 The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety re‐
quirement is met. If in any doubt, please have the electrical installa‐
tion tested by a qualified electrician.
Miele cannot be held liable for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
 Reliable and safe operation of this dishwasher can only be assur‐
ed if it has been connected to the mains electricity supply.
 The dishwasher must only be plugged into the electricity supply
via a suitable switched socket using a fused 3-pin plug (it must not
be hard-wired). The electrical socket must be easily accessible after
the dishwasher is installed so that it can be disconnected from the
electricity supply at any time.
 There must be no electrical sockets behind the dishwasher. Dan‐
ger of overheating and fire risk if the dishwasher were to be pushed
up against a plug.
 The dishwasher must not be installed under a hob. The high radi‐
ant temperatures which are sometimes generated by a hob could
damage the dishwasher. For the same reason it should not be instal‐
led next to open fires or other appliances which give off heat, such
as heaters etc.
 To avoid the risk of damage to the dishwasher, make sure that the
connection data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and frequen‐
cy) match the mains electricity supply before connecting the dish‐
washer to the mains. Consult a qualified electrician if in doubt.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 Do not connect the dishwasher to the mains supply until it has
been fully installed and any adjustment has been made to the door
springs.
 The dishwasher may only be operated if the door opening mecha‐
nism is working correctly. Otherwise there could be a risk of danger
whilst the automatic door opening mechanism (depending on model)
is active.
To check that the door opening mechanism is working correctly:
– the door springs must be adjusted equally on both sides. They
are correctly adjusted when the door remains stationary when left
half open (approx. 45° opening angle). It is also important that the
door cannot fall open.
– the door locking pins automatically retract when the door opens
at the end of the drying phase.
 Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension lead. These do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance (fire hazard).
 The appliance must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g.
on a ship).
 Do not install the dishwasher in a room where there is a risk of
frost. Frozen hoses may burst or split. The reliability of the electronic
control unit may be impaired at temperatures below freezing point.
 The plastic housing of the water connection contains an electrical
component. It must not be dipped in water.
 There are electrical wires in the water inlet hose. Do not cut the
water inlet hose, even if it is too long.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
 The integrated Waterproof system offers protection from water
damage, provided the following conditions are met:
– The dishwasher is correctly installed and plumbed in.
– The dishwasher is properly maintained and parts are replaced
where it can be seen that this is necessary.
– The stopcock 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.
 The water pressure (flow pressure at the take-off point) must be
between 30 and 1000 kPa (0.3 and 10 bar).
 If the dishwasher gets damaged, switch it off at the mains imme‐
diately and call your Miele Dealer or the Miele Service Department.
 While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be un‐
dertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the
guarantee is invalidated.
 Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when genu‐
ine original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components
must only be replaced by Miele spare parts.
 During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply (switch it off
and withdraw the plug from the socket).
 If the connection cable is damaged it must be replaced with a
special cable of the same type (available from Miele) by a Miele au‐
thorised service technician only.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct installation
 The dishwasher must be installed and connected in compliance
with the installation diagram supplied.
 Take care, both before and during installation of the dish‐
washer, not to cut yourself on the metal parts. Danger of in‐
jury. Wear protective gloves.
 The dishwasher must be correctly aligned to ensure problem-free
operation.
 In order to ensure stability, built-under and integrated dishwash‐
ers must only be installed under a continuous worktop which is se‐
cured to adjacent cabinetry.
 If you want to convert your freestanding dishwasher to a built-un‐
der ("U") model, you will need to order the appropriate conversion
kit. If you remove the existing plinth, you must replace it with a Umodel plinth. This is necessary to avoid the risk of injury caused by
protruding metal parts.
 The door springs must be adjusted equally on both sides. They
are correctly adjusted when the door remains stationary when left
half open (approx. 45° opening angle). It is also important that the
door cannot fall open.
The appliance may only be used with correctly adjusted door
springs.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Do not use solvents in the dishwasher. Danger of explosion.
 Do not inhale or ingest dishwasher detergent. Dishwasher deter‐
gents can cause burning in the nose, mouth and throat if swallowed,
or inhibit breathing. Seek medical attention immediately if detergent
has been swallowed or inhaled.
 You could injure yourself on the open dishwasher door or trip over
it. Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily.
 Do not sit or lean on the opened door. This could cause the dish‐
washer to tip and be damaged, and you could get injured.
 Dishes can be very hot at the end of the programme. Allow them
to cool until they are comfortable enough to handle before unload‐
ing.
 Only use detergent and rinse aid formulated for domestic dish‐
washers. Do not use washing-up liquid.
 Do not use commercial or industrial detergents as these may
cause damage, and there is a risk of a severe explosive chemical re‐
action (such as an explosive oxyhydrogen gas reaction).
 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 dish‐
washer detergent will damage the water softener. Make sure you
have picked up the correct packet of dishwasher salt before filling
the salt reservoir!
 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.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
 In an appliance with a cutlery basket (depending on model), cut‐
lery is cleaned and dried more efficiently if placed in the basket with
the handles downwards. However, to avoid the risk of injury, place
knives and forks etc. with the handles upwards.
 Plastic items which cannot withstand being washed in hot water,
such as disposable plastic containers or plastic cutlery should not
be cleaned in the dishwasher. The high temperatures in the dish‐
washer may cause them to melt or lose shape.
 If you use the "FlexiTimer/Delay start" option (depending on mod‐
el), make sure that the dispenser is dry before adding detergent.
Wipe dry if necessary. Detergent will clog if poured into a damp dis‐
penser and may not be thoroughly dispersed.
 Please observe the information given in "Technical data" regard‐
ing the capacity of the dishwasher.
Accessories
 Only use genuine original Miele accessories and spare parts with
this dishwasher. Using accessories or spare parts from other manu‐
facturers will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept lia‐
bility.
Disposal of your old dishwasher
 Make the door lock inoperative so that children cannot acciden‐
tally shut themselves in. Make appropriate arrangements for the dis‐
posal of the appliance.
16
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing mate‐
rial
Disposing of your old appli‐
ance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances of‐
ten contain valuable materials. They al‐
so contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be po‐
tentially hazardous to human health and
to the environment. They are, however,
essential for the correct functioning of
your appliance. Please do not therefore
dispose of it with your household
waste.
The packaging consists of the following
materials:
Outer packaging:
– Corrugated cardboard made from up
to 100% recyclable material:
or: Polyethylene (PE) shrink wrap
– Polypropylene (PP) strapping
Inner packaging:
– Chlorine and fluorine free expanded
polystyrene (EPS)
– Base, lid frame and support battens
made from untreated natural wood
from renewable forests
Please dispose of it at your local com‐
munity waste collection / recycling cen‐
tre or contact your dealer for advice.
– Polyethylene (PE) protective wrap
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for disposal.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the manufactur‐
ing process and also reduces the
amount of waste in landfill sites.
To enable sorting by type of plastic for
recycling, all plastic parts of the appli‐
ance are labelled with international
standard symbols.
17
Caring for the environment
Energy saving washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally eco‐
nomical in its use of water and electrici‐
ty.
You can make the most of your appli‐
ance 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 ECO programme (depend‐
ing on model) for energy-saving dish‐
washing. This programme is the most
efficient in terms of its combined en‐
ergy and water consumption at
cleaning normally soiled crockery.
– Follow the detergent manufacturer's
recommendations on detergent dos‐
age.
– When using powder or liquid deter‐
gent you can use 1/3 less detergent if
baskets are only half full.
– If your household water system is
suitable, this dishwasher can be con‐
nected to a hot water supply for fur‐
ther economies. If the water is heated
by for example, solar panels, this
would be energy efficient.
However, if your water is heated by
electricity we would recommend con‐
nection to cold water.
18
Before using for the first time
Opening the door
Closing the door
 Push the baskets right in.
 Then raise the door up, and push un‐
til it clicks into position.
 Danger of injury.
Do not put your hand inside the door
as it is closing.
Safety lock
Use the safety lock to prevent children
opening the dishwasher door.
 To open the door, reach under the
door grip and pull.
If the door is opened during operation
all functions are automatically interrup‐
ted.
 Water in the dishwasher may be
hot. Danger of scalding.
Only open the door during operation
if absolutely necessary and exercise
extreme caution when doing so.
 To lock the door, push the slide un‐
derneath the door grip to the right.
 To unlock the door, push the slide to
the left.
19
Before using for the first time
Water softener
Enter the water hardness below:
In order to achieve good cleaning re‐
sults, the dishwasher needs to operate
with soft water. Hard water results in a
build-up of calcium deposits on crock‐
ery and in the dishwasher.
Mains water with a hardness level high‐
er than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d - German
scale) needs to be softened. This takes
place automatically in the integrated
water softener. The water softener in
the dishwasher is suitable for a water
hardness level of up to 12.6 mmol/l (70
°d - German scale).
____________mmol/l or °d
– The water softener requires dish‐
washer salt.
Depending on the water hardness
level (< 3.8 mmol/l, or 21 °d - Ger‐
man scale), dishwasher salt is not re‐
quired if combination tablets are be‐
ing used (see "Operation, Deter‐
gent").
– The dishwasher must be program‐
med to the correct water hardness
for 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 1.8 and 2.7 mmol/l (10 15 °d - German scale) always pro‐
gramme the dishwasher to the higher
value (2.7 mmol/l or 15 °d in this ex‐
ample).
In the event of a fault, it will help the
service technician if you know the hard‐
ness of your local water supply.
20
The dishwasher is programmed at the
factory for a water hardness level of 2.7
mmol/l (15 °d - German scale).
If this setting corresponds to the hard‐
ness of your water you do not need to
do anything more.
However, if you have a different water
hardness you must adjust the water
softener to match your water hardness.
Before using for the first time
Displaying and setting the water
hardness
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button, if it is switched on.
 Press the Start button in and whilst
holding it in switch the dishwasher
on using the  button
Keep the Start button pressed in for
at least four seconds until the Start
indicator light comes on.
If this does not happen, start the proce‐
dure from the beginning again.
 Press the  button twice.
The  indicator will flash rapidly twice
at intervals.
The value set for the water hardness is
shown as a figure after  in the display
(see chart).
   will start flashing in the display.
This is the factory default setting of
15 °d.
 Use the Start button to select the val‐
ue which equates to your water hard‐
ness level.
Each press on the button moves you
up a level. When the highest water
hardness level is reached, the setting
starts from the beginning again.
The setting is now stored in memory.
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button.

Before using for the first time
Before using the appliance for
the first time, you require:
– approx. 2 litres of water,
– approx. 2 kg dishwasher salt,
– domestic dishwasher detergent,
– rinse aid formulated for domestic
dishwashers.
Every dishwasher is tested at the fac‐
tory. There will be residual water in the
appliance from this test. It is not an in‐
dication that it has been used previ‐
ously.
Dishwasher salt
In order to achieve good cleaning re‐
sults, the dishwasher needs to operate
with soft water. Hard water results in a
build-up of calcium deposits on crock‐
ery and in the dishwasher.
Mains water with a hardness level high‐
er than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d - German
scale) needs to be softened. This takes
place automatically in the integrated
water softener. The water softener in
the dishwasher is suitable for a water
hardness level of up to 12.6 mmol/l
(70 °d - German scale).
If the water in your area is very soft
and constantly lower than 0.9 mmol/l
(5 °d - German scale) you do not
have to add dishwasher salt. The
prompt to add salt will be switched off
automatically.
 Dishwasher detergent will dam‐
age the water softener.
Do not fill the salt reservoir with
powder or liquid detergent.
 Only use special coarse grained
dishwasher salt for reactivation,
as other salts may contain insoluble
additives which can impair the func‐
tioning of the water softener.
The water softener requires dishwasher
salt.
Depending on the water hardness level
(< 3.8 mmol/l, or 21 °d - German scale),
dishwasher salt is not required if combi‐
nation tablets are being used (see "Op‐
eration, Detergent").
23
Before using for the first time
Adding salt
Before filling the salt reservoir with
dishwasher salt for the first time, you
must fill it with approx. 2 litres of wa‐
ter to enable the salt to dissolve.
Once the dishwasher has been used,
there is always sufficient water in the
reservoir.
 Remove the lower basket and un‐
screw the salt reservoir cap.
Water or saline solution will run out
of the reservoir when the cap is re‐
moved.
It should therefore only be removed
in order to refill the salt reservoir.
 Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres
of water (first use only).
 Place the funnel provided over the
salt reservoir and carefully fill with
salt until the reservoir is full. The salt
reservoir holds approx. 2 kg of salt
depending on the brand used.
 Clean any excess salt from around
the reservoir opening and then screw
the cap on again firmly.
 Immediately after filling the salt reser‐
voir, run the Sensor wash gentle 
programme with the Short  option
and without any crockery in the dish‐
washer to remove any traces of salt
from the cabinet.
24
Before using for the first time
Add salt reminder
 Fill the salt reservoir with dishwasher
salt when the Salt indicator light
comes on. (If it comes on during a
programme, wait until the end of the
programme).
 Risk of corrosion.
Immediately after filling the salt res‐
ervoir, run the Sensor wash gentle 
programme with the Short  option
and without any crockery in the dish‐
washer to remove any traces of salt
from the cabinet.
If you only ever use combination prod‐
ucts in your dishwasher, you can
switch both refill reminders for salt
and rinse aid off if you wish (see "Pro‐
gramme options - Refill reminders").
If you switch to using detergent that
does not contain salt or rinse aid, it
is important to remember to add salt
and rinse aid and to switch the re‐
minders back on.
After the salt reservoir has been filled,
the refill indicator may still be lit up if
the salt concentration has not yet
reached the correct level. It will go out
when the correct concentration is
reached.
The refill reminder will be switched off if
you have programmed the dishwasher
for a water hardness below 0.9 mmol/l
(5 °d - German scale).
25
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 res‐
ervoir 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 washing-up liquid or
powder or liquid detergent will dam‐
age 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.
26
 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 refill reminder
When the Rinse aid indicator lights up,
the rinse aid reservoir contains suffi‐
cient rinse aid for 2 - 3 programmes on‐
ly.
 Add rinse aid in plenty of time.
If you only ever use combination prod‐
ucts in your dishwasher, you can
switch both refill reminders for salt
and rinse aid off if you wish (see "Pro‐
gramme options - Refill reminders").
 Add rinse aid only until it is visible in
the opening.
The rinse aid reservoir holds ap‐
prox. 110 ml.
If you switch to using detergent that
does not contain salt or rinse aid, it
is important to remember to add salt
and rinse aid and to switch the re‐
minders back on.
 Close the flap firmly so that it clicks
into place. Otherwise water can enter
the rinse aid reservoir during a pro‐
gramme.
 Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring dur‐
ing the next programme.
27
Before using for the first time
Setting the rinse aid dosage
You can adjust the rinse aid dosage for
best results.
The rinse aid dosage is set in stages
from 0 to 6. It is set to 3 at the factory.
This is the recommended setting.
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button, if it is switched on.
 Press the Start button in and whilst
holding it in switch the dishwasher
on using the  button.
Keep the Start button pressed in for
at least four seconds until the Start
indicator light comes on.
If the "Adjust Sensor wash" programme
function (depending on model) has
been activated, the amount of rinse aid
dispensed in the Sensor wash pro‐
gramme can be higher than that set.
If this does not happen, start the proce‐
dure from the beginning again.
If spots appear on crockery and glass‐
ware:
The  indicator will flash rapidly 3
times at intervals.
 Increase the rinse aid dosage.
The dosage set will show in the display
after the  symbol.
If clouding or smearing appears on
crockery and glassware:
 Decrease the rinse aid dosage.
 Press the  button 3 times.
The flashing sequence   will appear in
the display.
This indicates the factory default setting
3.
 Use the Start button to select the set‐
ting required.
Each press on the button moves you
up a level. After reaching the highest
value the counter starts from the be‐
ginning again.
The setting is now stored in memory.
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button.

Notes
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 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 in‐
side other pieces where they may be
concealed.
– Make sure that small items cannot
fall through the holders in the bas‐
kets.
Small items, e.g. lids, should there‐
fore 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 dish‐
washer may discolour if large quanti‐
ties of these foodstuffs find their way
into the dishwasher on the crockery.
The stability of plastic items is not
affected by this discolouration.
Cleaning silver cutlery in the dish‐
washer may also cause plastic items
to discolour.
– 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. cham‐
pagne glasses, should be placed in
the centre of the basket to ensure
better water coverage.
– 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 rotat‐
ing the spray arms.
29
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 dish‐
washer.
– Craft items, antiques, valuable vases
and decorative glassware: such
items are not suitable for dishwash‐
ers.
– Plastic items which are not heat re‐
sistant: the high temperatures in the
dishwasher may cause them to melt
or lose shape.
– Copper, brass, tin and aluminium
items: these may discolour or be‐
come matt.
– Colours painted over a glaze: these
may fade after a number of washes.
– Delicate glassware and glassware
containing lead crystal: clouding may
occur over time.
Please note
Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may still be damp or spot‐
ted at the end of a programme, where
water has not run off smoothly. 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, mayon‐
naise, mustard, pulses, fish, fish brine
and marinades.
30
 Aluminium components (e.g.
cooker hood grease filters) must not
be cleaned with caustic alkaline
commercial or industrial cleaning
agents.
These may damage the material, or
in extreme cases, there is a risk of a
severe explosive chemical reaction
(such as an explosive oxyhydrogen
gas reaction).
Tip: When purchasing new crockery
and cutlery, make sure they are dish‐
washer-proof.
Glass care
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. If delicate glass‐
ware is washed in the dishwasher en‐
sure 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.
– Purchase glassware which is dish‐
washer safe (e.g. Riedel glassware).
– Use detergents with glass protective
additives (e.g. Miele CareCollection
tabs).
– Visit "http://www.mieleglass‐
care.com/international/en/glasscare/
english" for more information on
glass care.

when running the Tall items pro‐
gramme, if available).
Cup rack
 Raise the rack upwards to make
room for tall items.
Glasses can be arranged along the cup
rack for support during the programme.
 Lower the cup rack and lean the
glasses against it.
 Use the upper basket for small, light‐
weight and delicate items such as
cups, saucers, glasses, dessert
bowls, etc.
Shallow pans or casserole dishes can
also be placed in the upper basket.
 Long items such as soup ladles, mix‐
ing spoons and long knives should
be placed lying down across the front
of the upper basket.
31
Loading the dishwasher
Adjusting the upper basket
In order to gain more space for taller
pieces of crockery in the lower or upper
basket, the upper basket can be adjus‐
ted on three levels with 2 cm between
each level.
The upper basket can also be set at an
angle with one side high and the other
side low. This can be useful to help pre‐
vent water being left in deep dishes etc.
Ensure, however, that the basket can
be inserted smoothly into the cabinet. It
is better to adjust the basket before
loading it.
 Pull out the upper basket.
Depending on the setting of the upper

 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 con‐
tact with at least one of the serrated re‐
tainers 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).

Operation
Detergent
 Only use detergents formulated
for domestic dishwashers. Do not
use washing-up liquid.
Active ingredients
Modern detergents contain various ac‐
tive ingredients, the most important of
which are:
– Complexing agents to prevent calcifi‐
cation.
– Alkalis to aid removal of dried on soil‐
ing.
– Enzymes to break down starch and
loosen protein.
– Oxygen based bleaching agents to
remove coloured stains (e.g. tea, cof‐
fee, tomato sauce).
Most dishwasher detergents are mildly
alkaline and contain enzymes and oxy‐
gen based bleaching agents.
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 soil‐
ing.
– Tab detergents. These are suitable
for most levels of soiling.
40
You can also buy combination products
(see "Programme options, Detergent‐
Agent", 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 pro‐
tective additives and enhanced clean‐
ing 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 dry‐
ing results of combination detergents
can vary greatly.
For optimum cleaning and drying re‐
sults, use Miele dishwasher detergent
and add Miele salt and Miele rinse aid
separately. See "Optional accesso‐
ries".
Operation
Detergent dosage
 Follow the dosage recommended by
the manufacturer on the packaging.
 Unless directed otherwise, use one
detergent tab or add 20 to 30 ml de‐
tergent to compartment II, depending
on the level of soiling. With very
heavy soiling you can also add a
small amount of detergent to com‐
partment l.
 Tabs may not dissolve completely
when the Quick wash programme (if
available) is used.
Failure to dispense the recommen‐
ded amount of detergent may impair
cleaning results.
 Dishwasher detergents can
cause burning in the nose, mouth
and throat if swallowed, or inhibit
breathing.
Avoid inhalation of powder deter‐
gents and do not ingest dishwasher
detergent. Seek medical attention
immediately if detergent has been
swallowed or inhaled.
Keep detergent out of the reach of
children at all times. Keep children
away from the dishwasher when the
door is open. There could still be de‐
tergent residues in the cabinet. Only
add detergent just before starting the
programme and close the door, acti‐
vating the safety lock (if your dish‐
washer is fitted with one).
41
Operation
Adding detergent
 Press the opening catch on the de‐
tergent 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 packag‐
ing is properly closed after use to
avoid it getting damp and clumping
together.
For information
Compartment I holds max. 10 ml,
Compartment II holds max. 50 ml of
detergent.
There are marks 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 hori‐
zontal position.

A programme should only be cancel‐
led in the first few minutes, if at all.
Otherwise important programme
stages could be omitted.
The programme duration displayed may
vary with the same programme. It is in‐
fluenced by, among other things, the
water temperature at each intake, the
reactivation process, the type of deter‐
gent, the amount of crockery and how
dirty it is.
When a programme is selected for the
first time, the display shows an average
duration for a cold water intake.
The durations shown in the Programme
chart refer to standard test loads and
temperatures.
Each time a programme is run, the
electronic unit calculates the pro‐
gramme duration required according to
the temperature of the water taken into
the dishwasher and the amount of
crockery.
44
Operation
Energy management
At the end of a programme
To save energy, the dishwasher will
switch off automatically 10 minutes af‐
ter the last time a button has been
pressed or 10 minutes after the end of
the programme (see "Programme op‐
tions, Optimise standby").
The programme has ended when .
shows in the display.
 Press the  button to switch the
dishwasher back on.

fault.
The drying fan may continue to run for
a few minutes at the end of the pro‐
gramme.
 To prevent the risk of steam
damage to the worktop edging
above the dishwasher, it is advisable
to leave the door closed until you are
ready to unload the crockery. Alter‐
natively you can open the door fully
until the crockery is cool enough to
unload. Do not leave the door only
partially open.
45
Operation
Switching off
Unloading the dishwasher
At the end of a programme:
Dishes tend to break and chip more
easily when they are hot. Allow the
dishes to cool until they are comforta‐
ble enough to handle before unloading
them.
 The dishwasher can be switched off
at any time using the  button.
Switching the dishwasher off during a
programme stops the programme.
Switching the dishwasher off during the
run-up to a delay start time will also
stop the process.
If the dishwasher is not going to be
used for a longer period of time, e.g.
whilst on holiday, the stopcock
should be closed.
46
If you open the door fully after switch‐
ing 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 fall‐
ing onto the dishes in the lower basket.
Operation
Interrupting a programme
A programme is interrupted as soon as
the door is opened.
If the door is closed again, the pro‐
gramme 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 nec‐
essary and exercise extreme caution
when doing so. Before closing the
door again, leave it ajar for approx.

Cleaning and care
Check your dishwasher regularly (ap‐
prox. every 4 - 6 months). This way
faults and problems can be avoided.
 The external surfaces of the
dishwasher are susceptible to
scratching.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the ex‐
ternal surfaces.
Cleaning the wash cabinet
The wash cabinet is largely self-clean‐
ing, 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 a special dish‐
washer cleaner (see "Optional accesso‐
ries"). Follow the instructions on the
packaging.
If you mainly use low temperature pro‐
grammes (below 50 °C), there is a risk
of bacteria and unpleasant odours
building up in the wash cabinet. To pre‐
vent this happening the dishwasher will
automatically increase the temperature
in the final rinse of the selected pro‐
gramme after several programmes us‐
ing low temperatures have been run.
 Clean the filters in the wash cabinet
regularly.
60
Cleaning the door and the door
seal
Mould could build up on the door seal
and the sides of the dishwasher door
as these surfaces are outside the wash
cabinet and so not accessed and
cleaned by the spray arm jets.
 Wipe the door seal regularly with a
damp cloth to remove food deposits.
 Wipe off any food or drink residues
which may have dripped onto the
sides of dishwasher door before clos‐
ing it.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the door front
 Soiling that is left too long might
become impossible to remove and
could cause the external surfaces to
alter or discolour.
Remove any soiling immediately.
 Clean the front with a clean sponge
and a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid. After cleaning dry
with a soft cloth.
A clean, damp microfibre cloth with‐
out cleaning agent can also be used.
To avoid damaging the external sur‐
faces, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. pow‐
der cleaners and cream cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges,
e.g. pot scourers, brushes or spong‐
es which have been previously used
with abrasive cleaning agents,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers.
– wire wool,
– steam cleaning appliances.
61
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 access‐
ing the circulation system and re-enter‐
ing 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.
 Check the condition of the filters reg‐
ularly and clean them if necessary.
 Turn the handle anti-clockwise to re‐
lease the filter combination .
 Lift the filter combination out of the
dishwasher . Remove any coarse
particles and rinse the filter well un‐
der running water.
Use a nylon brush if necessary.
 Make sure that when cleaning
the filters, no coarse soil falls into the
circulation system, causing a block‐
age.
62
Cleaning and care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened:
 Press catches  together in the di‐
rection of the arrows as shown, and
open the filter .
 Rinse all the filters under running wa‐
ter.
 Then close the flap so that the catch
engages.
 Replace the filter combination so that
it lies flat in the base of the wash
cabinet.
 Then turn the handle clockwise to
lock the filter combination in place.
 Take care when you are fitting
the filter combination that it is se‐
cured in position correctly.
Otherwise coarse soil could get into
the circulation system and cause a
blockage.
63
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the spray arms
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 dish‐
washer is fitted with one).
 Push the top spray arm upwards to
engage the inner ratchet. Then un‐
screw the spray arm.
 Push the middle spray arm upwards
 to engage the ratchet. Then un‐
screw the spray arm .
 Remove the lower basket.
 Pull the lower spray arm firmly up‐
wards to remove it.
 Use a pointed object to push food
particles into the spray arm jets.
 Rinse thoroughly under running wa‐
ter.
 Replace the spray arms and check
that they rotate freely.

Maintenance
Cleaning the water inlet filter
A filter is incorporated in the screw con‐
nection 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.
The housing must not be dipped in
water.
Recommendation
If the mains water contains a large
number of insoluble substances, we
recommend fitting a large-area filter in
the connection between the stopcock
and the water inlet hose threaded un‐
ion.
This filter is available from Miele.
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.
74
 Carefully remove the seal.
 Withdraw the filter using pointed pli‐
ers and rinse clean under running
water.
 Replace the filter and seal, making
sure they are sitting correctly.
 Reconnect the inlet hose to the stop‐
cock, making sure it goes on correct‐
ly and is not cross-threaded.
 Open the stopcock.
If water leaks out, the inlet hose may
not be connected securely or it may
have been screwed on at an angle.
 Unscrew and reconnect the water in‐
let 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").
 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 carefully (watch out for
glass splinters which are particularly
difficult to detect). 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.
 Ensure that the catch engages
correctly.
 Press the catch for the non-return
valve inwards .
 Lift out the non-return valve  and
rinse well under running water.
 Be very careful not to damage
sensitive components when cleaning
the drain pump and the non-return
valve.
 Remove all foreign objects from the
non-return valve.

Plumbing
Drainage
Venting the drainage system
– The appliance drainage system is fit‐
ted 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 situ‐
ated 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 ap‐
prox. 1.5 m of flexible drain hose with
an internal diameter of 22 mm.
– The drain hose can be extended us‐
ing 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 ex‐
ceed 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
plan).
– 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 pro‐
trudes too far into the drain hose, it
will need to be shortened. Otherwise
the drain hose may become blocked.
 Pull the lower spray arm firmly up‐
wards to remove it.
 Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash cabinet.
– The drain hose must not be short‐
ened.
 Make sure that there are no
kinks in the hose, and that it is not
squashed or stretched.
After connecting the dishwasher to
the drainage system, check that all
plumbing connections are watertight.
