Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing mate‐
rial
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.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the manufactur‐
ing process and also reduces the
amount of waste in landfill sites.
Disposal of your old appliance
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.
Please dispose of it at your local com‐
munity waste collection / recycling cen‐
tre.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for disposal.

Energy saving tips
To avoid unnecessarily long drying
times and high consumption of energy:
– Make sure that your laundry is thor‐
oughly spun before drying. The high‐
er the spin, the greater the savings
that can be made in energy and time
during drying.
– Load according to the optimum
amount of laundry recommended for
the programme being used. Under‐
loading is uneconomical. Overload‐
ing gives a poorer quality of drying
and may cause unnecessary creas‐
ing.
– Make sure the room temperature is
not too high. If there are other heat
producing appliances in the room in
which the dryer is located, make sure
the room is well ventilated and switch
the other appliances off, if possible.
– Clean the fluff filters in the door
opening after every drying cycle.

7
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
 Before setting up the tumble dryer, check it for any externally visi‐
ble damage.
Do not install or use a damaged tumble dryer.
 Before connecting the tumble dryer, ensure that the connection
data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and frequency) match the
mains electricity supply. If in any doubt, consult a qualified electri‐
cian.
 The electrical safety of this tumble dryer 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 household wiring
system tested by a qualified electrician. Miele 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 by an
extension lead, multi-socket adapter or similar. These can overheat
and are a fire hazard.
 If the electrical connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced
by a Miele authorised service technician to protect the user from
danger.
 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, otherwise any
subsequent damage will not be covered by the guarantee.
 Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele origi‐
nal spare parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of
the appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
 The tumble dryer must be isolated from the electricity supply in
the event of a fault and during cleaning and maintenance.
 This tumble dryer must not be used in a non-stationary location
(e.g. on a ship).
 Do not make any alterations to the tumble dryer, unless author‐
ised to do so by Miele.
 Heat pump technology and refrigerant:
The heat pump in this tumble dryer uses a refrigerant which is con‐
densed by the compressor and led in a closed circuit through the
heat exchanger unit where heat exchange with the circulating drying
air takes place.
– The humming noises caused by the heat pump are normal and do
not impair the efficient functioning of the dryer.
– The refrigerant is not flammable or explosive.
– In general it is not necessary to leave the dryer standing for any
length of time before it is connected to the mains provided it has
been transported and installed correctly (see "Installation and
connection").
If it has not been transported as described, ensure that the rec‐
ommended standing time prior to first operation is observed. Oth‐
erwise the heat pump can be damaged.
– This tumble dryer contains fluorinated greenhouse gases. They
are hermetically sealed.
Designation: R 134a
9
Warning and Safety instructions
 Please observe the instructions in "Installation and connection"
and the "Technical data".
 The accessibility of the plug must always be ensured, in order to
disconnect the tumble dryer from the mains.
 Do not block the gap between the bottom of the tumble dryer and
the floor with plinth facings, deep pile carpet etc. This would hinder
a sufficient flow of air to the dryer.
 Make sure the dryer door can be opened without hindrance after
installation.
Correct use
 The maximum load for this tumble dryer is 8.0 kg (dry weight).
The maximum recommended loads for individual programmes are
given in the Programme chart.
 To prevent the risk of fire, do not connect the tumble dryer via a
controllable socket (e.g. a timer or a peak-load switch-off device).
If the drying programme is interrupted before the end of the cooling
down phase, this could cause the laundry to self-ignite.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 To prevent the risk of fire, the following textiles must not be dried
in this tumble dryer:
– Items which have not been washed.
– Items, such as workwear, which have not been thoroughly
cleaned and which are still soiled with grease, oil or other depos‐
its (such as cosmetics, lotions etc). If items have not been thor‐
oughly cleaned there is a danger that these might ignite when
heated, even after they have been removed from the dryer at the
end of the programme.
– Items (e.g. mops and floor cloths) which have been treated with
inflammable cleaning agents or which contain residues of ace‐
tone, alcohol, benzene, petrol, kerosene, stain remover, turpen‐
tine, wax and wax remover or other chemicals.
– Items which have been splashed with hair lacquer, hair spray, nail
varnish remover or similar substances.
When washing such heavily soiled items ensure that you use suffi‐
cient detergent and select a high temperature. If in doubt, wash
the items several times.
 Remove all items from pockets (e.g. lighters, matches).
 Warning: Do not switch the dryer off before the drying pro‐
gramme has finished. If this is done, the laundry must be hung up or
spread out to cool it down.
 Fabric conditioner and similar products must be used according
to the instructions on the manufacturer's packaging.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 To prevent the risk of fire, the following textiles must not be dried
in this tumble dryer:
– Items which have been cleaned using chemicals (e.g. professio‐
nal dry-cleaning agents).
– Items which contain a large proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber-like materials. For example, products made from latex
foam rubber, shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubberised articles
and items of clothing and pillows with foam rubber filling.
– Damaged items which contain padding or fillings (e.g. pillows,
jackets). When damaged, the filling can get out with the risk of it
igniting in the dryer.
 In many programmes, the heating phase is followed by a cooling
down phase to ensure that the items are not too hot to handle when
you remove them (this also avoids the danger of the laundry self-ig‐
niting). The programme is not finished until the cooling down phase
has been completed.
As soon as the programme has finished, remove all laundry from the
drum.
 Do not let anyone sit or lean on the door, as this can cause the
tumble dryer to tip up.
 Always close the door after use. This way you will avoid the dan‐
ger of:
– Children climbing onto or into the dryer or hiding things in it.
– Pets or other small animals climbing into it.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
 The tumble dryer must not be used without fluff filters or
– with damaged fluff filters, or
– with a damaged plinth filter.
This would cause an excessive build-up of fluff which in turn would
cause a fault.
 The fluff filters must be cleaned after every drying cycle.
 The fluff filters and the plinth filter must be thoroughly dried after
cleaning. Do not replace them if they are damp or wet. Damp or wet
filters could cause operational faults.
 Do not install the tumble dryer in a room where there is a risk of
frost occurring. At temperatures around freezing point the tumble
dryer may not be able to operate properly. There is a risk of damage
if the condensed water is allowed to freeze in the pump and hoses.
 If the water is drained externally through the drain hose instead of
being collected in the condensed water container, make sure the
drain hose is securely attached if you hang it in a sink or basin to
avoid the hose slipping and the water causing damage.
 Condensed water is not drinking water.
It can cause health problems in both people and animals if con‐
sumed.
 Always keep the area around the tumble dryer free of dust and
fluff.
Dust drawn into the tumble dryer can cause blockages in the heat
exchanger over time.
 The tumble dryer must not be hosed down.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Using a fragrance flacon (optional accessory)
 Only use genuine Miele original fragrance flacons.
 The fragrance flacon must be stored in its packaging so please
make sure you retain this.
 Caution. The fragrance can leak out of the flacon. Make sure that
you always keep the flacon, or the fluff filter with the flacon inserted
in it, in a horizontal position when carrying and do not tip or place
down on any surface.
 Use an absorbent cloth to wipe up any fragrance which has
leaked out of the flacon onto the floor, the dryer or any dryer compo‐
nents (e.g. the fluff filter) immediately.
 If fragrance which has leaked out of a flacon: comes into contact
with the skin - wash the skin thoroughly with soap and water;
comes in contact with the eyes - rinse the eyes with clean water for
at least 15 minutes; is swallowed - rinse out the mouth thoroughly
with clean water. Seek medical advice in the case of contact with
the eyes or if fragrance has been swallowed.
 If fragrance which has leaked out of a flacon comes in contact
with clothing, change the clothing immediately. Wash the clothing or
any cloths used for mopping up fragrance thoroughly with plenty of
water and detergent.
 There is the risk of fire or damage to the tumble dryer if the follow‐
ing instructions are not observed:
– Never refill a flacon with fragrance.
– Never use a faulty fragrance flacon.
 Dispose of an empty fragrance flacon with the household waste
and never use it for any other purpose.
 Please also observe the information supplied with the fragrance
flacon.

1. Notes on correct laundry care
Points to note regarding wash‐
ed laundry
– When washing very heavily soiled
items ensure that you use sufficient
detergent and select a high tempera‐
ture. If in doubt, wash the items sev‐
eral times.
– Do not put soaking wet items into the
tumble dryer. Make sure your laundry
is thoroughly spun before drying. The
higher the spin speed, the greater the
savings that can be made in energy
and time during drying.
– New dark coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately from
light coloured garments to avoid the
danger of colours running and disco‐
louring other garments or even plas‐
tic components in the dryer. Dark
coloured fibres can also settle on
light coloured garments and vice ver‐
sa.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
Preparing the laundry before
drying
 Make sure that any objects, e.g.
detergent dosing balls, lighters etc.
have been removed from the laun‐
dry.
They could melt or explode and
cause damage to the dryer or the
laundry.
 See "Warning and Safety" in‐
structions for further information.
Loading or using the tumble dryer in‐
correctly could cause a fire.
– Sort the laundry according to the
type of fibre and weave, size, gar‐
ment care label symbol and the dry‐
ing level required.
– Check the seams of padded or
down-filled items to prevent the risk
of fillings coming out. These could
catch fire when being dried.
– Disentangle the laundry.
– Tie together textile belts and ties.
– Fasten . . .
. . . duvet covers and pillow cases to
prevent small items from being trap‐
ped inside them.
. . . hooks and eyes.
– Sew in or remove underwiring from
bras.
– Leave jackets open and undo any
long zips so that textiles dry evenly.
– Minimum iron fabrics tend to crease
more, the greater the load. This is al‐
so the case for garments made from
very fine weave fabric, such as shirts
or blouses. If necessary, reduce the
size of the load for these types of
fabric.

See the "Programme chart".
This describes the programmes and
gives their maximum load.
– Load according to the optimum
amount of laundry recommended for
the programme being used. Under‐
loading is uneconomical. Overload‐
ing gives a poorer quality of drying
and may cause unnecessary creas‐
ing.
– With half loads you can select the
Auto load control option.
– Select an appropriate drying level,
e.g. . . .
. . . Normal +, if you want to fold and
put away the laundry after you take it
out of the dryer.
. . . Machine iron, if the laundry, e.g.
table linen, requires further process‐
ing after drying.
22
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink, de‐
pending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Gentle smoothing programme.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label, as
the surface of the fabric may other‐
wise become rough. They can be
partially dried using the Gentle
smoothing programme.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can, however,
be "fluffed up" in the Woollens hand‐
care programme.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not over-dry
these textiles. When purchasing
these garments it is advisable to take
their shrinkage properties into ac‐
count.
– Select the Gentle tumble option for
fabric which is particularly heat-sen‐
sitive or susceptible to creasing.

Transporting the dryer
To manoeuvre the dryer out of its pack‐
ing case to its installation site, hold it by
– the front feet
– and the lid where it protrudes at the
back of the appliance.
 Only transport the dryer as
shown in the following illustrations.
60
 If the tumble dryer has not been
transported as described, then it
must be left to stand for at least 1
hour before it is connected to the
electricity supply.
Otherwise the heat pump can be
damaged.
Installation and connection
Installation
Levelling the dryer
 Make sure the dryer door can be
opened without hindrance after in‐
stallation.
Ventilation
 The cool air intake at the front of
the dryer must not be blocked or
covered. This would hinder a suffi‐
cient intake of cool air for the heat
exchanger.
 Do not block the gap between
the bottom of the tumble dryer and
the floor with plinth facings, deep
pile carpet etc. This would hinder a
sufficient flow of air to the dryer.
The appliance must stand perfectly lev‐
el to ensure safe and proper operation.
Air which is taken in to cool the heat
exchanger is then blown back out of
the dryer and warms up the air in the
room. It is therefore very important to
ensure adequate ventilation, e.g. by
opening a window. Otherwise drying
durations may be longer (increased en‐
ergy requirement).
Before moving the tumble dryer
again (e.g. when moving house)
After each use a small quantity of con‐
densed water will collect in the area of
the pump. This water can run out if the
tumble dryer is tipped up when it is be‐
ing moved. Recommendation: run the
Warm air programme for approximately
1 minute before moving the tumble dry‐
er. Any remaining condensed water will
then be fed into the condensed water
container or out through the drain hose.
The screw feet can be adjusted to com‐
pensate for any unevenness in the floor.
61
Installation and connection
Additional installation require‐
ments
Pushing the dryer under a worktop
This tumble dryer is suitable for push‐
ing under a worktop.
 It is very important to avoid a
build-up of heat. The warm air which
is expelled from the dryer must be
able to dissipate. Warm air which
cannot dissipate could cause a fault.
– The appliance lid cannot be re‐
moved.
– The electrical socket must be located
in an accessible position near the ap‐
pliance.
– Drying durations may increase slight‐
ly.
Optional accessories
– Washer-dryer stack
The tumble dryer can be combined with
a Miele washing machine in a washerdryer stack. The appropriate Miele
washer-dryer stacking kit is required.
– Plinth
The tumble dryer can be fitted on a
plinth with drawer (please note the
plinth may not be available in all coun‐
tries).

Installation and connection
External condensed water out‐
let
Notes
When drying is in progress, con‐
densed water is pumped into the con‐
densed water container through the
drain hose which is located at the
back of the dryer.
The condensed water can also be
drained away via the drain hose so that
the condensed water container does
not have to be emptied.
Drain hose length: 1.60 m
Maximum delivery head: 1.50 m
Maximum drain hose length: 4.00 m
Installation conditions requiring a
non-return valve
 There is a risk of back-flow into
the dryer if a non-return valve is not
fitted.
Back-flow could damage the dryer
and also the room in which it is loca‐
ted.
Certain installation conditions, such
as those described below, require
the fitting of a non-return valve.
Maximum delivery head with non-return
valve fitted: 1.00 m
Installation conditions requiring the fit‐
ting of a non-return valve:
The following optional accessories
are available:
– Drainage into a sink or floor gully
where the end of the hose is im‐
mersed in water.
– an extension hose,
– Connection to a sink drain outlet.
– a non-return valve kit for connection
to an external water outlet. The kit in‐
cludes an extension hose.
– Connection to a drainage system al‐
ready in use by another appliance,
e.g. a dishwasher or washing ma‐
chine.
 The non-return valve has to be
fitted with the arrow pointing in the
direction of flow.
Otherwise water will not drain out of
the appliance.
63
Installation and connection
Arranging the drain hose
 Do not pull on the drain hose
and do not stretch it or allow it to be‐
come kinked.
This could damage the hose.
There will be a small amount of residual
water left in the drain hose. Have a con‐
tainer ready to collect this.
 Guide the hose to the right or left
side of the dryer, as required.
– If you are guiding it to the right you
can fit the hose into the groove.
– Leave the hose in the lower holder to
prevent it from being kinked by mis‐
take.
 Pull the drain hose off its connection.
 Unwind the hose and pull it carefully

Note for test institutes:
For testing in accordance with EN 61121, before testing, dry a 3 kg load of cotton laundry with 70%
residual moisture as per the above standard using the Cottons Normal programme without any options
selected.
Consumption data can vary from the nominal values given above depending on the size of the
load, type of fabric, residual moisture level after spinning, fluctuations in the electricity supply
and any options selected.
The consumption data shown in the EcoFeedback display can vary from the consumption data quo‐
ted here. The variations arise from the way the data is measured in the dryer. For example, the pro‐
gramme duration may vary depending on the residual moisture present in the laundry and the type of
fabric which will affect the energy requirement.
