IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
,WARNING - To reduce the risk of
fire, electric shock or injury to
persons while using your appliance
follow basic safety precautions,
including the following:
Read all instructions before
installation or use to prevent injury
and appliance damage.
This appliance conforms to all
uniform safety codes and
regulations.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and pass them on to
any future user.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Correct usage
~ Only use the washing machine to
wash items which are specified by the
manufacturer to be machine washable
on the fabric care label. Any other
applications may be dangerous.
~ Persons who lack physical, sensory
or mental abilities, or experience with
the appliance should not use it without
supervision or instruction by a
responsible person.
Children
~ Do not allow children to play on or in
the appliance. Close supervision is
necessary when the appliance is used
near children.
~ The drum door glass will be hot
when washing at very high
temperatures.
Do not touch the glass. Danger of
burns! Keep children away from the
washer when in use.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Technical safety
~ Do not install or use a washer with
visible damage.
~ Before connecting the machine,
ensure that the connection data on the
data plate (fusing, voltage and
frequency) match the mains electrical
supply. If in doubt contact an
electrician.
~ GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In
the event of malfunction or breakdown,
grounding will reduce the risk of
electric shock by providing a path of
least resistance for electric current. This
appliance is equipped with a cord
having an equipment- grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
~ WARNING - Improper connection of
the equipment-grounding conductor
may result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician if you
are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
~ Do not modify the plug provided
with the appliance - if it will not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed by
a qualified electrician.
~ Do not use an extension cord to
connect this appliance to the power
supply. Extension cords do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced with genuine Miele spare
parts.
~ Installation, repair and maintenance
work should be performed by a Miele
authorized service technician. Work by
unqualified persons could be
dangerous and may void the warranty.
~ Do not repair or replace any part of
the appliance or attempt any servicing
unless specifically recommended in
these operating instructions.
~ If the power cord is damaged it
must only be replaced by a Miele
Service technician with a genuine Miele
power cord.
~ Before servicing, cleaning or in the
event of a fault, disconnect the
appliance from the main power supply.
~ Only use a new hose kit to connect
the washer to the water supply. Old
hosing should not be re-used.
~ Under certain conditions, hydrogen
gas may be produced in a hot water
system that has not been used for 2
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 the
water flow from each for several
minutes before using the washing
machine. This will release any built-up
hydrogen gas. Do not smoke or use an
open flame during this time, the gas is
flammable.
~ Before the appliance is removed for
service or discarded, remove the door.
5
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Safety
~ Do not install or store this appliance
where it will be exposed to the weather.
~ Do not install the washing machine
in rooms where temperatures below
freezing may occur.
~ Before using the washer for the first
time, remove the shipping struts at the
back of the appliance (see "Installation
- Removing the shipping struts"). Failure
to remove the shipping struts can
damage the washer and surroundings
during spinning.
~ During extended absences (e.g.,
vacation), close the water supply.
~ Do not wash articles that have been
previously cleaned, washed, soaked or
spotted with gasoline, dry-cleaning
solvents or other flammable
substances. These articles give off
vapors that could ignite or explode. Do
not add these items to the wash load.
~ Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning
solvents, or other flammable or
explosive substances to the wash
water. These substances give off
vapors which could ignite or explode.
~ Do not use cleaning solvents on or
near the machine or the controls.
Contact with cleaning solvents will
damage the surface.
~ Danger of flooding!
Before hanging the drain hose in the
sink, make sure the water will drain
away quickly enough.
Secure the hose. The force of the water
exiting the hose can cause an
unsecured hose to pop out of the sink.
~ Do not reach into the appliance if
~ Ensure that no foreign objects are
left in pockets (e.g. nails, coins, paper
clips, etc.) this can cause damage to
clothes and the machine.
~ Only use genuine Miele
~ Proper dosing of the detergent will
eliminate the need to remove lime
deposits. However, if heavy limescale
does form on the washer, select a
descaling agent with corrosion
protection. Closely follow the
instructions on the product package.

Before using for the first time
Washing tips:
Detergent use
Energy and water consumption
– Use the recommended amount of
detergent.
– Do not overload the washer. The
energy and water consumption will
be most energy efficient.
– Bear in mind the soiling degree of
the laundry.
– Use the "Express" program for small
loads.
– When smaller amounts of laundry are
washed using the "Normal" and
"Sanitize" programs, the automatic
load recognition feature will
automatically reduce the water,
energy, and time for that load. This
may cause a correction in the
remaining time displayed for the
wash.
– If applicable use the program
"Normal - Very Warm" instead of
"Sanitize". It saves between 35% and
45% energy. For most soiling, this is
sufficient. For stubborn soiling use
the option "Pre-wash".
– Use less detergent for small loads.
Options selection
(Extended, Pre-wash)
Select for:
– For light to normal soiled items
without stains use a wash program
without an option.
– For normal to heavily soiled items
with stains wash with the "Extended"
option.
– For heavily soiled items use a wash
program with the "Pre-wash" option
and "Extended".
– Items with lager soiling, e.g. dust,
sand, use a program with the option
"Pre-wash".
Tip: If you will be using a tumble
dryer to dry the laundry
– Select the highest spin speed
suitable for the wash load to remove
as much water as possible to save
energy when tumble drying.
10
Using the washer
1. Prepare and sort the laundry
Sort the laundry
^ Only wash items that are labeled
machine washable by the
manufacturer. Most garments have a
fabric care label in the collar or side
seam.
^ Sort the laundry by care label and
color.
General tips
^ Empty all pockets.
,Foreign objects left in pockets
(e.g. nails, coins, paper clips, etc.)
can cause damage to clothes and
the machine.
Pre-treat stains
^ Tough stains (blood, egg, coffee, tea,
etc.) or badly soiled areas (collars
and cuffs) should be pre-treated with
a stain remover or a paste made from
powder detergent and warm water.
Dab stains with a damp light colored
cloth. Do not rub!
,Do not use chemical solvents in
the machine.
– Dark fabrics often bleed the first few
times they are washed. They should
be washed separately several times
before being included in a mixed
load.
– Curtains: Remove any lead weights
or strips before washing.
– Loose bra underwires should be
removed or sewn in place before
washing.
– Woolens, knitted garments, jeans,
pants and sweat shirts should be
turned inside out.
– Close zippers, hooks and eyelets
before washing.
– Comforter covers and pillowcases
should be fastened to prevent small
items from rolling inside of them.
– Do not wash items with the h
symbol on the fabric care label.

Using the washer
2. Load the laundry
^ Open the drum door.

damage, make sure that there is no
clothing caught between the drum
door and the seal.
^ Close the drum door.

Front loading washing machines
require significantly less detergent
than traditional top loaders. Closely
follow the requirements of the
detergent manufacturer.
Use detergent according to the laundry
soiling and water hardness.
Light soiling
No soiling or stains are visible.
Normal soiling
Some visible soiling or a few light
stains.
Heavy soiling
Very visible soiling or stains.
Use the "Pre-wash" function and add
detergent in the Heavy soil
compartment as described.
Too little detergent may cause:
– Ineffective cleaning of laundry;
fabrics may become gray and stiff
over time.
– Grease stains on the laundry.
– Hard water deposits on the heating
element.
Too much detergent may cause:
– Over sudsing with minimal drum
movement; poor wash, rinse and
spin results.
– Higher water consumption through
an automatic, additional rinse cycle.
– Higher environmental burden.

Cleaning and care
,Before cleaning or maintenance,
disconnect the power supply by
unplugging the unit or manually
"tripping" the circuit breaker.
,Do not hose the washer down.
Cleaning the exterior and
control panel
Cleaning the drum
To ensure that your machine remains
clean and free of any soil build-up or
odors, the washer comes equipped
with a self-cleaning program for the
drum and water lines. It is suggested to
run this program approx. once a month.
The program is completed without
laundry in the drum.
^ Clean the exterior of the washer with
a mild solution of non-abrasive
detergent or soap and water, then
wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ Clean the drum with a stainless steel
cleaner specially formulated for use
on washing machines (available from
Miele).
,Do not use chemical solvents,
abrasive cleaners, glass or
all-purpose cleaners!
They will damage the surface.
^ Load approx. ½ cup of bleach into
the Bleach compartment.
Do not exceed the max. fill mark
(small triangle on the sides).
^ Close the door.
^ Press the "MasterCare" button.
^ Use the display to select the "Clean
machine" program.
^ Press the "Start" button.
Once the program is finished:
^ Clean the dispenser drawer as
described on the following pages.
30
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
Regularly remove any detergent
residue.
^ Remove the lid from the bleach
container and clean both parts
thoroughly in warm water.
^ Re-attach the lid.
^ Pull the detergent drawer out until it
stops, press down the release catch,
and remove the drawer from the
washer.
^ Clean the "Heavy Soil" and "Main
Wash" compartments with warm
water.
^ Put the bleach container back in the
"Main Wash" compartment.
^ Remove the bleach compartment to
clean it.
31
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the siphon and softener
channel
1. Pull the siphon out of the "Softener"
compartment, and rinse under warm
running water. Clean the siphon tube
the same way.
2. Put the siphon back in place.
^ Clean the fabric softener channel with
warm water and a brush.
Clean the siphon tube and fabric
softener channel more often if you
frequently use liquid starch. Liquid
starch tends to build up.
32
Cleaning the detergent drawer niche
^ Use a bottle brush to remove any
detergent residue and lime deposits
from the jets inside the detergent
drawer.
^ Slide the drawer back into place.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the water inlet filters
The washer has two water inlet filters to
protect each inlet valve. These filters
should be checked and cleaned if
necessary every 6 months. This may
need to be done more frequently with
some water supplies.
^ Turn off the water supply.
^ Unscrew the inlet hose from the valve
by turning the connector counterclockwise using a wrench if
necessary.
^ Remove the rubber seal, 1, from the
connector.
^ Using needle nose pliers, grasp the
plastic filter, 2, and pull it out of the
hose connector.
^ Clean the filter under running water
and carefully remove any large
particles.
^ Replace the filter and seal then
reconnect the hose.
^ Slowly turn on the valve and check
for leaks. If water leaks, tighten the
bolt.
Both filters must be put back in
place after cleaning.

Installation
Installation site
For best performance front loading
washers should be installed on the
ground floor or basement of the
building.
A concrete or reinforced floor is the
most suitable surface for the washer.
These floors are less prone to vibration
during the spin cycle.
If the installation must be on a wooden
joist floor:
– the corner of a room where the
stability of the floor is at its greatest is
the best place to install the washer.
– the machine must be leveled and
securely positioned.
– to avoid vibration while spinning, the
machine should not be installed on
soft floor coverings.
^ Install the unit on a 1 1/4" (32 mm)
thick, 28" x 31" (71x78 cm) wide
plywood base. Ideally the base
should be large enough to span
several joists and should be
anchored to the joists and not just the
floor boards.
,If the machine is installed on a
raised platform it must be secured
with retaining clips available from
your dealer or Miele.
If installed on a masonry or concrete
base, the base should have a ½"
(13 mm) to ¾" (19 mm) high rim.
This must be done to prevent the
washer from vibrating off the stand
during the spin cycle.
46
,The washer must not be built
under a countertop.
Installation
^ Use the front washer feet and the
rear excess end to transport the
washer from its shipping pallet to the
installation site.
Do not lift the washer by the drum
door!
,Ensure that the machine’s feet
and the floor are dry to prevent
slippage during the spin cycle.
Installation
Removing the shipping struts
^ Withdraw the two struts together with
the support plate.
^ Turn the left shipping strut
counterclockwise 90°.
^ Cover the two holes with the provided
plugs.
^ Turn the right shipping strut
counterclockwise 90°.
,Movement of the washer without
the shipping struts in place should
be kept to a minimum. The struts
must be reinstalled before the
machine is moved. The shipping
struts should be stored in a safe
place for future use.
^ Reinstall the struts by reversing the
above procedure.

Installation
Leveling the washer
To ensure smooth operation the washer
must be level.
Failure to level the machine can result
in increased water and energy
consumption, loud noises during the
spin cycle or "walking" across the floor
during use.
^ Loosen the locking ring, 2, with the
supplied wrench.
^ Unscrew each of the four feet as
much as necessary by turning both
the foot, 1, and locking ring, 2, to the
left.
^ Remove the support and stand the
machine on its feet.
Adjust the four leveling feet
^ Check that the machine stands level.
The washer is leveled by adjusting the
four feet. The machine is delivered with
all four feet completely screwed in.
^ Repeat the above procedure until the
machine stands level.
^ Tip the machine slightly and place a
support, such as a block of wood,
underneath it.
,CAUTION: The washer is
extremely heavy. When tipping the
machine be careful that it does not
slip.
48
^ Once level, hold the foot, 1, immobile
with a wrench. At the same time, turn
the locking ring, 2, to the right using
another wrench.
,All four locking rings must be
tight against the bottom of the
machine. In addition, check to see
that the feet were not inadvertently
unscrewed while tightening the
rings. Operating a machine that is
not level or whose feet are not tight
may cause damage to both the
machine and its surroundings.
Plumbing
The washing machine can be
connected to a portable water supply.
A non-return valve is not needed unless
required by building code.
The washing machine has ½" (13 mm)
pressure hoses with 3/4" (19 mm) female
hose thread connections. If there is no
water hookup, contact a plumber to
install a connection. Make sure that the
sealing ring is seated properly on the
hose connector.
Replace the hose only with a genuine
Miele hose, or with a hose able to
withstand up to 145 psi (10 bar)
pressure. The water valve connector
must also be able to withstand 145 psi
(10 bar).
,The bolted connection is under
water pressure. Open the water
supply slowly to check for leaks.
Adjust the rubber seal and the
bolted connection if necessary.
To protect the inlet valve, the two
filters (one at the pressure hose /
valve connection and one at the inlet
connection to the solenoid valve)
must not be removed.
Hose extension (optional accessory)
Hose extensions with a length of
8’ 2 7/16" to 13’ 1 ½" (2.5 to 4 m) are
available from Miele.

Water connection
Tips for a hot water connection
^ Connect the cold water intake hose
(blue mark) to the cold water valve
and the hot water intake hose (red
mark) to the hot water valve.
The hot water temperature from the hot
water valve must not exceed 140°F
(60°C); the ideal temperature is 130°F
(55°C).
If the machine is being connected only
to a cold water supply, both the hot and
cold water intake hoses must be
attached to the cold water valve
through the use of a Y adapter
(available at a hardware store). Both
hoses must be connected to a water
source or the machine will not function
properly.
If there is no water pressure at the hot
water inlet, the unit will automatically
switch to cold water after several
minutes.
Do not connect the washer to hot
water only.
^ Turn on the valve(s) and check for
leaks. The water pressure must be
within 15 -145 psi (1 -10 bar). If the
water pressure is greater that 145 psi
(10 bar) a pressure reducer must be
installed. If the water pressure is
below 15 psi (1 bar) there will not be
enough water available for a
complete fill.
The water intake hoses are equipped
with screen filters. Do not remove these
filters except for cleaning.

Plumbing
Drainage
The 5 ft (1.5 m) drain hose may be
connected as follows:
1. Directly into a sink: hook the hose
over the edge of the sink and secure
it firmly (e.g. by tying the hose to the
water faucet).
2. To a stand pipe: place the drain hose
into a 1 ½" (4 cm) stand pipe and
secure it firmly.
3. To a floor drain: The machine is
equipped with an air gap /
anti-siphoning system so that no
minimum drain height is required.
^ The machine drains using a pump
with a maximum delivery height of 4 ft
(1.2 m).
^ Make sure there are no kinks in the
drain hose.
If necessary, the drain hose may be
extended to run a maximum of 16 ft
(4.9 m), as long as the 4 ft (1.2 m)
height is not exceeded. Hose
extensions are available from Miele.
