Before using for the first time
Cleaning and Care
Before using the machine for the first
time the following steps must be
completed.
See the respective chapters for
detailed information.
Preparing the water softener
(WES) (Optional)
The water softener unit must be set to
the water hardness level in your area.
The salt reservoir must be first filled
with water and then with reactivation
salt.
,Inadvertently filling the salt
reservoir with dishwashing detergent
will damage the water softener.
Make sure that only water softener
reactivation salt of the proper grain
size is used. Only use Miele water
softener salt.
14
The filters on the bottom of the wash
cabinet and the spray arms must be
kept clean.
Check and clean them regularly!
Opening and closing the door
To open the door
To close the door
^ Open the door with the handle.
^ Lift the door upwards and push until
it clicks shut.
The door should only be opened during
operation for emergencies, e.g. if items
are knocking together or if a program
fault is indicated in the display (see
"Cancelling a program").
,Do not touch the wash cabinet
surfaces when opening the door
during or directly after the end of a
program. Danger of burns. They
remain hot for some time.
15
Water softener (WES) (optional)
Applies only for machines with a
built-in water softener.
To achieve good cleaning results, the
dishwasher needs to operate with soft
water. Hard water results in a build-up
of calcium deposits on dishes and in
the dishwasher.
To ensure a steady supply of soft water:
1. the water softener unit must be
correctly programmed, and
2. the salt reservoir must be filled. If the
water hardness level is below 4 gr/gal
(70 ppm CaCO3) the reservoir does not
need to be filles with reactivation salt.
The machine is factory set for a
water hardness level of 19 gr/gal
(340 ppm CaCO3).
If the water supply is harder or softer
than this including below 4 gr/gal
(70 ppm CaCO3) the factory setting
needs to be changed. See "Setting
the water softener" and chart for
settings.
Your local water authority can advise
you of the water hardness in your area.
For fluctuating levels (e.g. 8 - 17 gr/gal
[140 - 310 ppm CaCO3]) set the water
softener to the highest setting (in this
example to 17 gr/gal).
16
Important! The built-in water softener
has settings from 1 gr/gal to 35 gr/gal
(20 - 630 ppm CaCO3).
If the water hardness is above 30 gr/gal
(540 ppm CaCO3) an external water
softener unit (e.g. PG 8597 Aqua Soft
System) is required.

Water softener (WES) (optional)
Filling the salt reservoir
Only special, coarse-grained
reactivation salt* should be used in
this machine.
*Available from Miele. Please see
back page for more information.
Do not use other types of salt, e.g. table
salt, agricultural or gritting salt. These
could contain components which are
insoluble in water and could damage
the water softener. If in doubt consult
the Miele Professional Department.
The salt reservoir holds about 3.3 lbs
(1.5 kg) of salt.
,Inadvertently filling the salt
reservoir with detergent will damage
the water softener.
Before filling, make sure that you are
using the proper reactivation salt.
^ Remove the lower basket.
^ Unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
,Filling the salt reservoir with
salt for the first time:
First fill the reservoir with approx.
0.5 gal (2 liters) of water.
Refilling the salt reservoir with
salt:
If there is still water in the tank, run
the "Drain" program first.
18
^ Place the supplied funnel over the
salt reservoir.
^ Carefully fill with reactivation salt.
Displaced water will run out as it is
being filled.
^ Clean any excess salt from the
threads of the reservoir opening.
^ Screw the cap on firmly.
^ Close the door.
^ Salt residues must be removed to
prevent corrosion by starting a
regular cycle or a rinse cycle.
Water softener (WES) (optional)
If the machine is used afterwards
^ Press one of the program buttons.
Any traces of salt are diluted and rinsed
away. The display shows the time
remaining until the end of the rinse. The
dispay shows the time period until the
machine can be used again.
After the rinse process has begun,
there may be a pause for a few
minutes while the water softener is
regenerated.
If the boiler and tank are filled and the
operating temperature has been
reached, the wash time of the selected
program will be shown in minutes.
Once complete the machine is ready
for operation.
Starting the rinsing process
manually
If you refill the regeneration salt and do
not immediately start a new wash
program, e.g. in the evening, the rinse
cycle does not start automatically,
therefore salt residue may remain in the
machine. Rinse out the salt residue by
manually starting the rinse cycle.
^ Press the Z button.
^ Press and hold the 6 button and
press Y at the same time.
Any traces of salt are diluted and rinsed
away.
