~ To reduce the risk of injury, do not
allow children to play in, on or near the
dishwasher.
~ Only use the dishwasher if all panels
are properly in place.
~ Do not tamper with the controls.
~ Do not damage, sit or stand on the
door or baskets of the dishwasher.
Close the door when not in use.
~ Under certain conditions, hydrogen
gas may be produced in a hot water
system that has not been used for two
weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS
EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has
not been used for such a period, turn
on all hot water faucets and let water
flow from each for several minutes
before using the dishwasher. This will
release any accumulated hydrogen
gas. Do not smoke or use an open
flame during this time.
~ Be sure that all items placed in the
dishwasher are "dishwasher safe". For
items not labeled, check the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
~ When loading tableware, place
sharp items away from the door to

sharp items pointing downwards to
prevent injuries.
~ Only use detergents and rinse aids
recommended for residential
dishwashers. Keep all detergents and
rinse aids out of the reach of children.
6
~ Do not inhale or swallow detergents.
Dishwasher detergents contain irritant
and corrosive ingredients. They can
cause burning in the mouth and throat if
swallowed, or inhibit breathing. Consult
a doctor immediately if detergent has
been swallowed or inhaled.
~
Do not drink water from the
dishwasher! Harmful residues could be
present.
~ Do not fill the rinse aid reservoir or

Caring for the environment
Energy saving washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in the use of water and
electricity. For best results follow these
tips:
^ For lowest energy consumption you
may connect the dishwasher to a
cold water source.
^ For fastest possible wash times, with
slightly higher energy consumption,
connect the dishwasher to a hot
water source.
^ Make full use of the baskets without
overloading for the most economical
washing.
^ Use the correct amount of detergent
and rinse aid. Detergent dosage is
dependent upon the amount of
soiling and type of dishware being
washed. See the "Program Guide" for
more information.
^ When using powder or gel detergent,
reduce the amount to 2/3 of the
normal amount when washing a small
load.
^ Choose a program that best suits the
degree of soiling and the type of
dishes being washed.
^ For small loads select "Express".
9
Before using for the first time
To open the door
To close the door
^ Push the baskets in.
^ Lift the door and push until it clicks
into position.
^ Pull the handle to open the door.
If the door is opened during operation,
the dishwasher will stop running. Once
the door is closed the program will
continue.
10
Before using for the first time
Water softener
Every dishwasher is tested before
leaving the factory. Any water
remaining in the machine is from the
final factory test and does not
indicate that the machine has been
used.
To achieve good cleaning results, the
dishwasher needs soft water. Hard
water results in calcium deposits on
dishware and in the dishwasher.
If your tap water hardness is above 4 °d
(4 gr/gal [US]), the water should be
softened.
In areas where the water hardness
fluctuates (example 37 - 50 °d [39 52 gr/gal]) always program the
machine to the higher value (in this
example 50 °d [52 gr/gal] ).
If there is a fault, it will help the service
technician to know the hardness of your
local water supply.
^ Please note your water hardness::
°d (gr/gal)
The water hardness was programmed
to 1 - 4 °d (1 - 4 gr/gal) by factory
default
– The water softener must be filled with
dishwasher salt for reactivation.
If using "Tab" products which include
salt, you should still add salt to the
machine to achieve optimal cleaning
results.
– Your local water authority will be able
to advise you of the water hardness
level in your area.
– The dishwasher must be
programmed to correspond to the
water hardness in your area.
If the hardness of your local supply
is constantly lower than 4 °d (4 gr/gal
[US]), you do not need to add water
softener salt. However the water
hardness level must still be
programmed.
11
Before using for the first time
Programming the water
softener
To exit the programming mode at
any time, turn the dishwasher off
with the "O" button.

Before using for the first time
Filling the salt container
,Inadvertently filling the salt
container with dishwashing
detergent will damage the water
softener.
,Only use water softener salt
specially formulated for
dishwashers. Other salts may
contain insoluble additives which
can impair the water softener.
^ Remove the lower basket and
unscrew the salt container lid.
When opening the salt container,
water will run out. Open the
container only to refill salt.
Important: The salt container must
be filled with 2 quarts (2 l) of water
before adding salt for the first
time. Water does not have to be
added with subsequent refills.
^ Place the provided funnel over the
salt container. Carefully fill with salt.
The salt container holds approx.
4.5 lbs (2 kg) of salt. As it is filled,
water will run out.
^ Clean any excess salt from the
threads of the container opening.
Screw the lid on firmly.
^ If the dishwasher will not be used
immediately, run the "Express"
program. This will remove any traces
of salt from inside the wash cabinet.
Salt indicator
^ When the "Salt" indicator comes on,
refill the salt after the program is
finished.
After the container has been filled, the
water softener is automatically
reactivated the next time the
dishwasher is started. The "Salt"
indicator will be lit during this process.
It will go out once the reactivation
process is complete.
13
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Rinse aid helps to prevent spotting on
dishes and glassware.

will remain closed during normal
operation.
Rinse aid indicator
^ Press the button in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
14
When the rinse aid indicator first comes
on, there will be enough rinse aid left
for 2 - 3 washes.

panel will light when the rinse aid
reservoir needs refilling.
Before using for the first time
Adjusting the dosage
The dosage selector is preset to 3. This
dispenses approximately 3 ml of rinse
aid per program. It can be adjusted

15
Loading the dishwasher
,Do not wash items soiled with
ash, sand, wax, grease or paint in
the dishwasher.
Ash and sand do not dissolve and
will be distributed throughout the
inside of the dishwasher.
Wax, grease and paint will cause
permanent discoloration and
damage to the dishwasher.
^ Scrape food from dishes before
placing them in the dishwasher,
rinsing is not necessary.
^ Some foods contain natural dyes,
e.g. carrots or tomatoes. Plastic items
may discolor permanently if they
come in contact with food dyes.
^ All items can be placed anywhere in
the baskets.
^ Load dishes so that water can reach
all surfaces. Do not place dishes or
cutlery inside other pieces.
^ Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
^ Hollow items such as cups and
glasses should be placed upside
down in the baskets.
^ To ensure good water coverage,
tall, narrow and hollow items,
i.e. vases or champagne glasses,
should be placed in the center of the
basket rather than in the corners.
^ Concave based items such as mugs
or bowls, should be placed at an
angle so that water does not pool.
16
^ The spray arms must not be blocked
by items that are too tall or hang
through the baskets. Check
clearance by manually rotating the
spray arms.
^ Place very small items in the cutlery
tray or basket so they do not fall to
the bottom of the wash cabinet.
^ Food residue and spilled liquids
should be cleaned from the sides of
the dishwasher door. These are
outside of the wash cabinet and are
not cleaned by water from the spray
arms.
Loading the dishwasher
Items not recommended for
dishwashing
– Cutlery with wooden handles
– Wooden cutting boards
– Glued items such as old knives with
handles glued together around the
shank of the blade
– Handmade craft items, antique,
metal trimmed or decorative
glassware
Glassware:
– There are no standard guidelines for
washing glassware, when in doubt
wash by hand.
– When purchasing new dishes,
glasses and cutlery, make sure they
are dishwasher safe. Only wash
items marked "dishwasher safe" in
the dishwasher.
– Plastic items that are not heat
resistant
– If fine glassware is washed in the
dishwasher select the "China &
Crystal" program*. This will reduce
the risk of clouding.
– Copper, brass, tin or aluminum
Silver and aluminum:
– Dishes with color painted over the
glaze. These dishes may fade over
time
– Silver or aluminum items may tarnish.
– Fine glassware and crystal items
should only be washed using the
"China & Crystal" program*.
Otherwise clouding or etching may
occur after frequent washing.
– Cast iron pots and pans
* depending on model
If unsure whether your china and
crystal are dishwasher safe, please
check with the manufacturer. The
China & Crystal program, although
extremely gentle and thorough can
cause the china and crystal to "wear"
if they are not dishwasher safe.
– Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may be damp or spotted
at the end of a program where water
has adhered to the polish. This can
be rubbed off with a soft, dry cloth.
Silver that has been cleaned in an
immersion dip is usually dry at the
end of a program, but may tarnish.
– If left to dry, foods containing sulfur
can discolor silver. These include
egg yolk, onions, mayonnaise,
mustard, fish and marinades.
– Silverware may tarnish or pit if
washed next to stainless steel.
Leave space between these metals.
– Clean aluminum items, e.g. grease
filters, with domestic dishwasher
detergent only.
17
Loading the dishwasher
Cutlery tray
^ Arrange the cutlery as shown in the
cutlery tray.
For easier unloading cutlery should be
grouped in zones, one for knives, one
for forks, one for spoons, etc.
Place knives with the cutting edge
down and forks with the prongs
between the holders. Spoons should be
placed in the opposite direction with
the handles between the holders so
that water can run off more easily.
The upper spray arm must not be
blocked by tall cutlery items.
The cutlery tray insert is removable.
18
Spoons with thick handles may have to
be placed as knives and forks with their
heads in the holders.

Cleaning and Care
Triple filter system
The triple filter system in the base of the
wash cabinet prevents food from being
redeposited on dishes. It also protects
the circulation pump from damage
caused by foreign objects (e.g. broken
glass, bones). During normal use, the
filter system is self-cleaning.
,The machine must not be used
without all the filters in place!
^ Check and clean the filter system
periodically for any trapped or
foreign objects.
The level of soiling and time it takes
before the filters need cleaning will vary
depending on your household usage.
^ Turn off the dishwasher before
cleaning.
^ Turn the handle counterclockwise to
release the triple filter system a.
^ Lift the filter combination out of the
machine b. Remove any solid
particles and rinse under running
water. Scrub with a nylon brush if
necessary.
45
Cleaning and Care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened.
^ Return the filter so it lies flat in the
base of the wash cabinet.
^ Push the clips together a and open
the flap b.
^ Lock the filter by turning the handle
clockwise.
^ Rinse under running water.

47
Cleaning and Care
Cleaning the water inlet filter
A filter is incorporated into the intake
hose attached to the dishwasher’s shut
off valve. If your water is hard or the
pipes contain sediment, this filter may
clog and prevent enough water from
entering the wash cabinet.
,The plastic housing of the water
connection contains electrical
wiring.
Do not cut the intake hose or
submerge it in liquid.
Installing an in-line water filter
If your water contains a large number of
insoluble substances, a filter between
the water valve and the intake hose
connection is recommended. These
filters can be purchased from Miele.
Cleaning the filter
^ Turn off the dishwasher and pull the
plug.
^ Turn off the water supply.
^ Unscrew the intake hose.
48
^ Carefully remove the rubber seal.
^ Remove the filter using needle nose
pliers and rinse it under running
water.
^ Reinsert the filter and seal. Make sure
they are seated correctly.
^ Screw the intake hose back on the
water valve, checking that it is not
cross-threaded.
^ Slowly turn on the water supply and
test for leaks.
Cleaning and Care
Cleaning the drain pump and
non-return valve
If the dishwasher is not completely
drained at the end of a program, the
drain pump or non-return valve may be
blocked.
^ Turn off the dishwasher and pull the
plug.
^ Remove the triple filter (see "Triple
filter system").
^ Use a cup or bowl to scoop water out
of the wash cabinet.
The drain pump is beneath the
non-return valve (see arrow).
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
drain pump (glass or bone splinters).
^ Before returning the non-return valve,
check that the drain pump is not
blocked. Spin the propeller several
times in both directions to check for
obstructions.
^ Carefully reinsert the non-return valve
and secure it with the locking clamp.
^ Tilt the locking clamp to the side a.

connection of the machine to either a
hot or cold water source. For lowest
energy consumption connect the
dishwasher to a cold water source.
For fastest possible wash times, with
slightly higher energy consumption,
connect the dishwasher to a hot
water source. All programs use hot
water in the rinse cycles.
,Do not cut the intake hose. It
contains electrical wiring. If the hose
is cut, the dishwasher will not work.
There will be a water leak and you
could be injured. If the hose is too
long, coil it neatly and place it
behind the machine.
– The inlet hose is approximately 5 ft.
(1.5m) long.
– A 5 ft. (1.5m) drain extension is
available from Miele.
– The water inlet hose comes
equipped with a 3/4" female hose
thread connector. This can be
directly connected to a water supply
with 3/4" MHT (male hose thread
ends).
– Water pressure: Must be between
4.5 - 145 psi (0.3 - 10 bar).

Plumbing
Drainage
Venting the drainage system
– The machine comes equipped with a
built-in non-return valve on the
discharge side to prevent waste
water from flowing back into the
dishwasher.
If the dishwasher drain hose is
connected to a floor drain or to a drain
pipe that is less than 8" (20 cm) above
the floor, the drain must be vented.
Otherwise the water inside the
dishwasher may siphon out during the
wash program.
– The dishwasher is equipped with a
5 ft (1.5 m) flexible drain hose with an
internal diameter of 7/8" (22 mm).
– Drain hose extensions and adapters
can be ordered from Miele.
The maximum drain hose length is
13 ft. (4 m), max. drain height: 39"
(1 m).
^ Open the dishwasher door and
remove the lower basket.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove.
– If the hose is to be directly fitted to
the drainage outlet on site, use the
supplied hose clip (see assembly
plan).
– The hose can be installed to the left
or right side.
– The existing drain pipe for the drain
hose is designed for various hose
diameters. The drain pipe must be
shortened if the drain pipe extends
too far into the drain hose. The drain
hose could get clogged.
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
,Make sure the hose is installed
without kinking, pressure or being
pulled.
