9
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
 Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. Installation, maintenance work and repairs to electrical
appliances must only be carried out by a Miele approved service
technician.
 Before installation, check the dishwasher for visible signs of
damage. Under no circumstances should you use a damaged
dishwasher. A damaged dishwasher could be dangerous.
 The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing
system. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is
present and regularly tested and, where there is any doubt, the
electrical system in the house should be checked 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
assured 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. 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.
Danger of overheating and fire risk if the dishwasher were to be
pushed up against a plug.
 The dishwasher must not be installed under a cooktop. The high
radiant temperatures which are sometimes generated by a cooktop
could damage the dishwasher. For the same reason, it should not be
installed next to open fires or other appliances which give off heat,
such as heaters etc.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 To avoid the risk of damage to the dishwasher, make sure that the
connection data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and
frequency) matches the mains electricity supply before connecting
the dishwasher to the mains. Consult a qualified electrician if in any
doubt.
 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
mechanism is working correctly. Otherwise there could be a risk of
injury 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 (e.g. danger of overheating).
 This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (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.
 To avoid any damage to the appliance, the dishwasher must only
be operated when it is connected to a fully vented plumbing system.
 The plastic housing of the water connection contains an electrical
valve. The housing must not be dipped in water.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 There are electrical wires in the water inlet hose. Do not cut the
water inlet hose, even if it is too long.
 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 tap 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 connection point) must
be between 50 and 1000 kPa (0.5 and 10 bar).
 A damaged appliance could be dangerous. If the dishwasher gets
damaged, switch it off at the mains and call Miele.
 The manufacturer's warranty will be invalidated if the appliance is
not repaired by a Miele approved service technician.
 Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele spare
parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of the
appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
 During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply.
 If the mains connection cable is damaged, it must be replaced
with a special cable of the same type (available from Miele) by a
Miele authorised service technician only in order to avoid a hazard.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
 This dishwasher is supplied with a special lamp (depending on
model) to cope with particular conditions (e.g. temperature,
moisture, chemical resistance, abrasion resistance and vibration).
This special lamp must only be used for the purpose for which it is
intended. It is not suitable for room lighting. Replacement lamps may
only be replaced by a Miele authorised technician.
 In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance and
its surroundings in a clean condition at all times. Any damage which
may be caused by cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered
by the warranty.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct installation
 The dishwasher must be installed and connected in compliance
with the installation instructions.
 Be careful when installing the dishwasher. Wear
protective gloves to avoid injury on any sharp metal
components.
 The dishwasher must be correctly aligned to ensure problem-free
operation.
 In order to ensure stability, built-under and integrated dishwashers
must only be installed under a continuous worktop which is secured
to adjacent cabinetry.
 If you want to convert your freestanding dishwasher to a builtunder ("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 on either side need to be evenly adjusted. They
are correctly adjusted if the half-opened door (approx. 45° door
opening angle) remains in this position when it is released. The door
must not fall down under its own weight.
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. Some dishwasher
detergents are strongly alkaline and contain irritants or corrosive
ingredients. They can be extremely dangerous if swallowed, and can
cause burning in the nose, mouth and throat, or inhibit breathing.
Avoid contact with the skin and eyes. Seek medical advice
immediately if detergent has been swallowed or inhaled, e.g. Poisons
Information Centre (Australia) or National Poisons Centre (NZ).
 Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily as someone could trip
over it and be injured by it.
 Do not sit or lean on the opened door. This could cause the
dishwasher to tip and be damaged, and you could get injured.
 Dishes can be very hot at the end of a programme. Allow them to
cool until they are comfortable enough to handle before unloading.
 Only use detergent and rinse aid formulated for domestic
dishwashers. 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
reaction (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
dishwasher 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) cutlery
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 and crockery
should not be cleaned in the dishwasher. The high temperatures in
the dishwasher may cause them to melt or lose shape.
 If you use the "FlexiTimer/Delay start" option (depending on
model), make sure that the dispenser is dry before adding detergent.
Wipe dry if necessary. Detergent will clog if poured into a damp
dispenser and may not be thoroughly dispersed.
 Please observe the information given in "Technical data" regarding
the capacity of the dishwasher.
Accessories
 Use only genuine original Miele spare parts. If spare parts or
accessories from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be
invalidated, and Miele cannot accept liability.
Disposal of your old dishwasher
 Make the door lock inoperative so that children cannot
accidentally shut themselves in. Remove or destroy the locking
bracket of the door lock, and make appropriate arrangements for the
disposal of the appliance.
16
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The transport and protective packaging
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain specific materials,
compounds and components, which
were essential for their correct function
and safety. These could be hazardous
to human health and to the environment
if disposed of with your domestic waste
or if handled incorrectly. Please do not,
therefore, dispose of your old appliance
with your household waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites. Ensure that any plastic
wrappings, bags etc. are disposed of
safely and kept out of the reach of
babies and young children. Danger of
suffocation.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre for electrical and electronic
appliances. You are also responsible for
deleting any personal data that may be
stored on the appliance prior to
disposal. Please ensure that your old
appliance poses no risk to children
while being stored prior to disposal.
17
Caring for the environment
Energy-saving dishwashing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in its use of water and
electricity.
You can make the most of your
appliance 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 for
energy-saving dishwashing. This
programme is the most efficient in
terms of its combined energy and
water consumption at cleaning
normally soiled crockery.
– Follow the detergent manufacturer's
recommendations on detergent
dosage.
– When using powder or liquid
1
detergent you can use /3 less
detergent if baskets are only half full.
– If your household water system is
suitable, this dishwasher can be
connected to a hot water supply for
further economies. If the water is
heated by solar panels, for example,
this would be energy efficient.
However, if your water is heated by
electricity, we would recommend
connection to cold water.
You can find further tips on energysaving dishwashing in "Miele's guide
to dishwashing".
18
Before using for the first time
Opening the door
Closing the door
At the end of programmes with a drying
phase (see "Programme chart"), the
door will open automatically a little in
order to help the drying process.
This function can be deactivated, if
preferred (see "Programme options,
AutoOpen").
 Push the baskets right in.
 Then lift the door upwards and push
until it clicks into position.
 Danger of injury!
Do not put your hand inside the door
as it is closing.
Safety lock
The child safety lock can be used to
prevent children opening the
dishwasher. The door can then only be
opened by using a lot of force.
 To open the door, reach under the
door grip and pull.
 Open the door fully so that the door
catch rail retracts again.
If the door is opened during operation,
all functions are automatically
interrupted.
 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
underneath the door grip to the right.
 To unlock the door, push the slide to
the left.
 Keep the area around the door
free of obstructions.
19
Before using for the first time
Water softener
Enter the water hardness below:
In order to achieve good cleaning
results, the dishwasher needs to
operate with soft water. Hard water
results in a build-up of calcium deposits
on crockery and in the dishwasher.
Mains water with a hardness level
higher 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
– 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 combination tablets are being used
(see "Operation, Detergent").
– The dishwasher must be
programmed 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
programme the dishwasher to the
higher value (2.7 mmol/l or 15 °d in
this example).
In the event of a fault, it will help the
service technician if you know the
hardness of your local water supply.
20
The dishwasher is programmed at the
factory for a water hardness level of 0.2
mmol/l (1 °d - German scale).
If this setting corresponds to the
hardness 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 level
 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
procedure from the beginning again.
 Press the Delay start button  twice.
The  indicator light will flash rapidly
twice at intervals.
The value which has been 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
0.2 mmol/l (1 °d - German scale).
 Use the Start button to select the
value which equates to your water
hardness level.
Each press of 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
factory. There will be residual water in
the appliance from this test. It is not
an indication that it has been used
previously.
Dishwasher salt
In order to achieve good cleaning
results, the dishwasher needs to
operate with soft water. Hard water
results in a build-up of calcium deposits
on crockery and in the dishwasher.
Mains water with a hardness level
higher 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 if the water softener has
been programmed for this to happen.
 Dishwasher detergent will
damage 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 (e.g. cooking salt,
agricultural grade or gritting salt) may
contain insoluble additives which can
impair the functioning 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
combination tablets are being used (see
"Operation, Detergent").
23
Before using for the first time
Filling the salt reservoir
Before filling the salt reservoir with
dishwasher salt for the first time, you
must fill it with approx. 2 litres of
water 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
unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
Water or saline solution will run out
of the reservoir when the cap is
removed.
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
dishwasher 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
reservoir, run the QuickPowerWash
programme with the Short option and
without any crockery in the
dishwasher to dissolve and 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
reservoir, run the QuickPowerWash
programme with the Short
programme option selected and
without any crockery in the
dishwasher to remove any traces of
salt from the cabinet.
If you only ever use multi-function
combination products in your
dishwasher, you can switch off both
refill reminders for salt and rinse aid if
you wish (see "Programme options Switching off the refill indicators").
If you switch to using detergent that
does not contain salt or rinse aid, it
is important to remember to add
dishwasher salt and rinse aid and to
switch the reminders 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
reservoir 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 powder or liquid
detergent will damage 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
Add rinse aid reminder
When the Rinse aid indicator light
comes on, the reservoir contains
sufficient rinse aid for 2 - 3 programmes
only.
 Add rinse aid in plenty of time.
If you only ever use multi-function
combination products in your
dishwasher, you can switch off both
refill reminders for salt and rinse aid if
you wish (see "Programme options Switching off the refill indicators").
 Add rinse aid only until it is visible in
the opening.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
110 ml.
 Close the flap firmly so that it clicks
into place. Otherwise water can enter
the rinse aid reservoir during a
programme.
If you switch to using detergent that
does not contain salt or rinse aid, it
is important to remember to add
dishwasher salt and rinse aid and to
switch the reminders back on.
 Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring
during 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.
If the "Adjust Automatic" programme
function (depending on model) has
been activated, the amount of rinse aid
dispensed in the Automatic programme
can be higher than that set.
 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 4 seconds until the Start
indicator light comes on.
If this does not happen, start the
procedure from the beginning again.
 Press the  button 3 times.
If spots appear on crockery and
glassware:
The  indicator will flash rapidly 3
times at intervals.
 Increase the rinse aid dosage.
The dosage set will appear in the
display after .
If clouding or smearing appears on
crockery and glassware:
 Decrease the rinse aid dosage.
The flashing sequence   will appear in
the display.
This indicates the factory default setting
3.
 Use the Start button to select the
setting required.
Each press of the button moves you
up a level. After reaching the highest
value, the counter starts from the
beginning 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. Ash does
not dissolve and is distributed in the
wash cabinet. Wax, sand, lubricating
grease and paint cause damage to
the dishwasher.
Crockery can be loaded anywhere in
the baskets, but the following notes
should be observed:
– Do not place crockery and cutlery
inside other pieces where they may
be concealed.
– Load the crockery so that water can
access all surfaces. This ensures that
they get properly cleaned.
– 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
rotating the spray arms.
– Make sure that small items cannot
fall through the holders in the
baskets.
Small items, e.g. lids, should
therefore be placed in the cutlery tray
or cutlery basket (depending on
model).
Some foodstuffs may contain natural
dyes, e.g. carrots, tomatoes or
tomato sauce. Plastic items in the
dishwasher may discolour if large
quantities 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
dishwasher may also cause plastic
items to discolour.
– 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.
champagne 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.
29
Loading the dishwasher
Items not suitable for dishwashers:
 Aluminium components (e.g.
– 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
dishwasher.
rangehood 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).
– Craft items, antiques, valuable vases
and decorative glassware are also
not suitable for dishwashers.
– Plastic items which are not heatresistant: the high temperatures in
the dishwasher may cause them to
melt or lose shape.
– Copper, brass, tin and aluminium
items may discolour or become matt.
– Colours painted over a glaze 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
spotted 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,
mayonnaise, mustard, pulses, fish, fish
brine and marinades.
30
Useful tip: When purchasing new
crockery and cutlery, make sure they
are dishwasher-proof.
Glass care
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. If delicate
glassware is washed in the
dishwasher, ensure that only very low
temperatures are used (see
programme chart), or a special glasscare programme is used (depending
on model). This will reduce the risk of
clouding.
– Purchase glassware which is
dishwasher-safe (e.g. Riedel
glassware).
– Use detergents with glass protective
additives.

Adjusting the upper basket
In order to gain more space for taller
pieces of crockery in the bottom or
upper basket, the upper basket can be
adjusted 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
prevent 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.

Operation
Detergent
 Only use detergents formulated
for domestic dishwashers. Do not
use washing-up liquid.
Active ingredients
Modern detergents contain various
active ingredients, the most important
of which are:
– Complexing agents to prevent
calcification.
– Alkalis to aid the removal of dried on
soiling.
– Enzymes to break down starch and
loosen protein.
– Oxygen based bleaching agents to
remove coloured stains (e.g. tea,
coffee, tomato sauce).
Most dishwasher detergents are mildly
alkaline and contain enzymes and
oxygen 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
soiling.
– Tab detergents. These are suitable for
most levels of soiling.
48
You can also buy combination products
(see "Programme options DetergentAgent", 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
protective additives and enhanced
cleaning 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
drying results of combination
detergents can vary greatly.
For optimum cleaning and drying
results, use Miele dishwasher
detergent and add Miele salt and
Miele rinse aid separately. See
"Optional accessories".
Operation
Detergent dosage
 Dishwasher detergents contain
 Follow the dosage recommended by
the manufacturer on the packaging.
irritant or corrosive ingredients which
can cause burning in the nose,
mouth and throat if swallowed, or

residues in the cabinet. To avoid the
danger of children coming into
contact with the dishwasher
detergent, only add detergent just
before starting the programme and
close the door, activating the safety
lock (if your dishwasher is fitted with
one).
 Unless directed otherwise, use one
detergent tab or add 20 to 30 ml
detergent to compartment II,
depending on the level of soiling.
With very heavy soiling you can also
add a small amount of detergent to
compartment l.

Cleaning and care
Check your dishwasher regularly
(approx. every 4-6 months). This way
faults and problems can be avoided.
 The external surfaces of this
appliance are all susceptible to
scratching.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the
external surfaces.
Cleaning the wash cabinet
The wash cabinet is largely selfcleaning, provided that the correct
amount of detergent is always used.
If there are nevertheless limescale or
grease deposits in the cabinet, these
can be removed with the Original Miele
dishwasher conditioning agent
(available from Miele or at www.mieleshop.com). Follow the dosage
recommended by the manufacturer on
the packaging.
Using mainly low temperature
programmes (below 50°C), could cause
bacteria and unpleasant odours to build
up in the wash cabinet. To avoid this,
the dishwasher will increase the
temperature in the final rinse of the
selected programme automatically after
several programmes using low
temperatures have been run.
 Clean the filters in the wash cabinet
regularly.
68
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 are not accessed and
cleaned by the spray arm jets.
 Wipe the door seals regularly with a
damp cloth to remove food deposits.
 Wipe off any food or drink residues
which may have dripped onto the
sides of the dishwasher door before
closing it.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the door front
 Soiling that is left too long might
become impossible to remove and
could cause external surfaces to alter
or discolour.
Remove any soiling immediately.
 Clean the front with a solution of
warm water and a little washing-up
liquid applied with a soft sponge.
Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
For cleaning, you can also use a
clean, damp microfibre cloth, such as
the Original Miele all purpose
microfibre cloth, without any cleaning
agent.
To avoid damaging external surfaces,
do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven cleaner,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges,
e.g. pot scourers, brushes or
sponges which have been previously
used with abrasive cleaning agents,
– dirt erasers,
– sharp metal scrapers,
– steel wool or metal scourers,
– steam cleaning appliances.
69
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
accessing the circulation system and
re-entering 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
regularly and clean them if necessary.
 Turn the handle anti-clockwise to
release the filter combination .
 Lift the filter combination out of the
dishwasher . Remove any coarse
particles and rinse the filter well
under running water.
Use a nylon brush if necessary.
 During cleaning ensure that
course soil doesn't get into the
circulation system and cause a
blockage.
70
Cleaning and care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened:
 Press the catches  together in the
direction of the arrows as shown, and
open the filter .
 Rinse all the filters under running
water.
 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 until
both arrows point towards each
other. This will lock the filter
combination in place.
 Take care when you are fitting
the filter combination that it is
secured in position correctly.
Otherwise coarse soil could get into
the circulation system and cause a
blockage.
71
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
dishwasher is fitted with one).
 Push the top spray arm upwards to
engage the inner ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm.
 Push the middle spray arm upwards
 to engage the ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm .
 Remove the lower basket.
 Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
 Use a pointed object to push food
particles into the spray arm jets.
 Rinse thoroughly under running
water.
 Refit the spray arms and check that
they rotate freely.

Maintenance
Cleaning the water inlet filter
A filter is incorporated in the screw
connection 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
 Carefully remove the washer.
If the mains water contains a large
amount of insoluble substances, we
recommend fitting a large-area filter in
the connection between the tap and the
water inlet hose threaded union. This
filter is available from Miele.
 Withdraw the filter using pointed
pliers and rinse clean under running
water.
Cleaning the filter:
 Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply.
Switch off at the mains socket and
withdraw the plug.
 Turn off the tap.
 Unscrew the inlet hose.
 Replace the filter and washer, making
sure they are sitting correctly.
 Reconnect the inlet hose to the tap,
making sure it goes on correctly and
is not cross-threaded.
 Turn on the tap.
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 inlet hose
correctly.
81
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 (watch out for glass or
bone splinters which are particularly
difficult to detect and could cause
injury). 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 refit the non-return valve
and secure it with the catch.
 Ensure that the catch engages
correctly.
 Press the catch for the non-return
valve inwards .
 Tilt the non-return valve inwards until
it is released .
 Rinse it thoroughly under running
water and remove any soiling from
the non-return valve.

Electrical connection
This dishwasher is supplied with a
mains cable with moulded plug ready
for connection to an AC single phase
supply, (230 - 240 V 50 Hz for NZ and
Australia) via a suitable switched
socket.
 The electrical socket must be
easily accessible after the
dishwasher has been installed. Do
not connect the dishwasher to the
mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do
not guarantee the required safety of
the appliance (e.g. danger of
overheating).
Do not connect the appliance solely to
an inverter such as those used with an
autonomous energy source e.g. solar
power. When switched on, peak loads
in the system can cause the safety
switch-off mechanism to be triggered.
This can damage the electronic unit.
The machine must not be used with socalled energy-saving devices either.
These reduce the amount of energy
supplied to the machine, causing it to
overheat.
86
 Before connecting the appliance,
check that the connection data on
the data plate (voltage, frequency,
rated load and fuse rating) matches
the mains electricity supply. If in any
doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
The data plate is located on the righthand side of the door.
 All electrical work must be
carried out by a suitably qualified
and competent person in strict
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations.
For extra safety, it is advisable to
install a residual current device
(RCD), with a trip current of 30 mA.
Water connection

installed correctly, the Miele waterproof

appliance, the dishwasher must only
be operated when it is connected to
a fully vented plumbing system.
Connection to the water supply
 Water in the dishwasher must
not be used as drinking water.
– The dishwasher may be connected to
a cold or hot water supply, max.
60°C.
We would only recommend
connection to a hot water supply if it
is economical, e.g. a solar powered
supply. When connected to a hot
water supply, all programmes will be
carried out with hot water.
– The inlet hose is approx. 1.5 m long.
– A tap with a 3/4" male thread must
be provided on site.
 The inlet hose must not be
shortened or damaged in any way as
it contains electrical components
(see illustration).
– IMPORTANT: Australia and New
Zealand
This appliance must be installed
according to AS/NZS 3500.1. Back
flow prevention is already integrated
in the appliance.
– The water pressure (flow pressure at
the take-off point) must be between
50 and 1000 kPa (0.5 and 10 bar). If
the water pressure is too high, a
pressure reducer valve must be fitted.
After connecting the dishwasher to
the water supply, check that all
plumbing connections are watertight.

Water connection
Drainage
Venting the drainage system
– The appliance drainage system is
fitted 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
situated 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
approx. 1.5 m of flexible drain hose
with an internal diameter of 22 mm.
– The drain hose can be extended
using 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
exceed 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
diagram).
– 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
protrudes too far into the drain hose,
it will need to be shortened.
Otherwise the drain hose may
become blocked.
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
 Make sure that there are no kinks
in the hose, and that it is not
squashed or stretched.
After commissioning the appliance,
ensure that the water outlet does not
leak.
88
 Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
 Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash cabinet.
