Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The cardboard box and packing
materials protect the appliance during
shipping. They have been designed to
be biodegradable and recyclable.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of children.
Danger of suffocation!
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
contain valuable materials. They also
contain certain substances, compounds
and components which were essential
for the proper functioning and safe use
of the equipment. Handling these
materials improperly by disposing of
them in your household waste can be
harmful to your health and the
environment. Therefore, please do not
dispose of your old appliance with
regular household waste and follow
local regulations on proper disposal.
Consult with local authorities, dealers or
Miele in order to dispose of and recycle
electrical and electronic appliances.
Miele assumes no responsibility for
deleting any personal data left on the
appliance being disposed. Please
ensure that your old appliance is kept
away from children until removal.
Observe safety requirements for
appliances that may tip over or pose an
entrapment hazard.

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 using the appliance.
 GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of a 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 equipmentgrounding
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 install or use a washer with visible damage.
 Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to
the weather.
 Do not install your washing machine where temperatures below
freezing may occur. Frozen hoses may burst under pressure. The
reliability of the electronic control unit may be impaired at
temperatures below freezing.
7
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 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.
 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).
 This appliance is not designed for maritime use or for use in
mobile installations such as recreational vehicles or aircraft.
However, under certain conditions it may be possible for an
installation in these applications. Please contact the Miele Technical
Service Dept. with specific requirements.
 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.
 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.
8
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Use
 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.
 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.
 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..
 Do not reach into the appliance if the drum is moving.
 Do not tamper with the controls.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

 If installing the machine on a Miele plinth (available as an optional
accessory), please make sure you order the correct one for this
washing machine.
 Should detergent enter the eyes, rinse out immediately with plenty
of lukewarm water. If accidentally ingested, seek medical advice
immediately. People who have sustained damage to the skin or who
have sensitive skin should avoid contact with the detergent.
 Be careful when opening the door following use of the steam
function. There is a danger of burning due to escaping steam and
the high temperature of the surface of the drum as well as the
porthole glass. Step back and wait until the steam has dissipated.

Energy and water consumption
Detergent consumption
– Make use of the maximum load of
the respective wash program.
The energy and water consumption
will then be the lowest in relation to
the size of the load.
– Use the TwinDos system for exact
dispensing.
– When smaller amounts of laundry are
washed, the washing machine's
automatic load control system will
reduce the amount of water and
energy used.
– Adjust the dosage to the level of
soiling of the laundry.
– Do not exceed the amounts of
detergent recommended on the
packaging.
– Only use high efficiency detergent
with the following label:
– Use the Express program for small,
lightly soiled loads.
– Modern detergents make it possible
to wash at lower temperatures (e.g.,
70°F/20°C). Using the corresponding
temperature settings will save energy.
– Washing at low temperatures and/or
using liquid detergents can cause
bacteria and odors to build up in the
washing machine. Miele therefore
recommends cleaning the washing
machine once every month.
When drying with a tumble dryer
Select the highest possible spin speed
for the wash program to save energy in
the subsequent tumble dryer cycle.
The washing machine provides you
with a reminder with the message
Sanitize info: Run a high temp. program or
the "Clean Machine" program
in the
display.

 Sort the laundry by care label and
color.
Tip: 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.
General tips
– Curtains: Remove any lead weights
or strips before washing.
– Loose bra underwires should be
removed or sewn in place before
washing.
– 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 
symbol on the fabric care label.
Pre-treating stains
 Badly soiled areas, stains etc. should
be cleaned as soon as possible,
preferably while still fresh. Dab stains
with a damp light colored cloth. Do
not rub!

5. Adding detergent
There are several options for adding
detergent to the washing machine.
TwinDos
The washing machine has an integrated
detergent dispensing unit – the TwinDos
system.
After the supplied TwinDos cartridges
have been inserted, the system is
ready for use.
Only operate the TwinDos system
with the Miele UltraPhase 1 and
UltraPhase 2 detergents.
How UltraPhase 1 and UltraPhase 2
work
UltraPhase 1 is a liquid detergent which
dissolves dirt and removes the most
common stains. UltraPhase 2 is a
bleaching agent and removes stubborn
stains. For the best washing result,
these two agents are dispensed at
separate times during the washing
process. UltraPhase 1 and UltraPhase 2
clean white and colored textiles
thoroughly. UltraPhase 1 and
UltraPhase 2 single use cartridges are
available to order from your Miele
dealer or via Miele online store.
30
Activating TwinDos dispensing
TwinDos dispensing is automatically
activated on all programs in which
dispensing is possible.
Tip: The detergent dispensing
quantities are pre-set. If too much foam
builds up, the dispensing quantity for
UltraPhase 1 and UltraPhase 2 can be
reduced via Settings  TwinDos.
Changing TwinDos dispensing
You can change the suggested color
composition of the laundry.
 Touch the White or Color sensor
button.
Deactivating TwinDos dispensing
 Touch the TwinDos sensor button.
The sensor button is only dimly lit and
dispensing is deactivated.
Using other methods to remove
stains
If you use additional methods of stain
removal, you have the following
options:
– Using the Booster cap and activating
the CapDosing
– Using chlorine bleach via the 
compartment in the detergent
dispenser drawer.
5. Adding detergent
Detergent dispenser drawer
Tips for dispensing
This washing machine requires high
efficiency detergent. Adhere strictly to
the dispensing amounts supplied by the
detergent manufacturer. The detergents
must be marked with the following
label:
Adjust the detergent dosage to the level
of soiling of the laundry and the
maximum load. Reduce the amount of
detergent with smaller loads (e.g.,
reduce the amount of detergent by ⅓
when washing a half load).
Too little detergent:
Ensure that TwinDos dispensing is
deactivated.
Filling with detergent
– The laundry is not cleaned properly
and may become gray and hard to
the touch over time.
– Can lead to a build-up of mould in
the washing machine.
– Grease is not completely removed
from the laundry.
– Can lead to limescale deposits on the
heater elements.
Too much detergent
– Poor wash, rinse, and spin results.
– Causes higher water consumption as
an extra rinse cycle is automatically
activated.
– A greater burden on the environment.
 Pull out the detergent drawer and add
detergents to the compartments.
 Chlorine bleach for removing
 stains or liquid detergent for the
pre-wash
Dispensing aids
Use dispensing aids (e.g., balls) if these
are supplied with the detergent,
particularly when using liquid detergent.
 Detergent for the main wash and
soaking
 Fabric softener, liquid starch, or
 capsules
31
5. Adding detergent
Using chlorine bleach
 Chlorine bleach is a very
aggressive substance.
It can cause damage to the colors
and fibers of textiles.
Only use chlorine bleach on suitable
textiles.
Chlorination must be activated in the
settings before chlorine bleach is first
used.
Chlorine bleach may be used in the
following programs:
– Normal
– Wrinkle-free
– Sanitize
– Dress Shirts
– Extra White
– Table Linens/Drapes
– Baby Clothes
Dispensing chlorine bleach
Follow the manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging.
The extra option pre-wash must not
be selected.
 Pour max. ¼ cup (60 ml) of chlorine
bleach into the   chamber.
The chlorine bleach is added
automatically 10 minutes before the end
of the main wash.
32
Using powder detergent
The detergent dispenser drawer
contains an insert for liquid detergent in
the  compartment. This insert must
be removed to use powder detergent.
It is not possible to use powder
detergent in the  compartment.
A pre-wash cannot be carried out
when using powder detergent.
 Remove the detergent dispenser
drawer.
 Remove the insert for liquid
detergents from the 
compartment.
Tip: Reinsert the insert into the
detergent dispenser drawer before next
using liquid detergent.
Tip: Use TwinDos dispensing if you
want to run a program with pre-wash.
Using detergent tablets or pods
Always put detergent tablets or pods
directly in the drum with the laundry.
They cannot be added via the detergent
dispenser drawer.
5. Adding detergent
Using fabric softener and liquid
starch
Fabric softeners
make garments soft to handle and help
prevent static cling when tumble drying.
Liquid starch
is synthetic and provides good stiffness
to fabric.
Natural starch
stiffens and gives body to fabric.
CapDosing
 Capsules contain corrosive
ingredients and irritants.
Children could come into contact
with the ingredients or swallow them.
Keep capsules out of the reach of
children.
Three different types of capsule are
available:

= Fabric care (e.g., fabric
softener, proofing agent)
 = Additives (e.g., detergent
enhancers)

= Detergent (for the main wash
only)
Each capsule contains the correct
amount for one wash cycle.
 Add the fabric softener or the liquid
starch to the  compartment. Do not
exceed the maximum level mark.
Capsules are available to order from
Miele's online store, Miele's customer
service, or from your Miele dealer.
It will be automatically dispensed in the
final rinse cycle. At the end of the
program a small amount of water
remains in the  compartment.
If starching frequently, clean the
dispenser compartment, especially
the siphon tube, regularly.

Without load
With frequent washing at low temperatures
there is a danger of a build-up of bacteria in the
washing machine.
Cleaning the washing machine will significantly
reduce bacteria and prevent the build-up of
unpleasant odors.
– Optimum results can be achieved by using
Miele machine cleaner. Alternatively, a
universal powder detergent can be used.
– Dispense the machine cleaner or universal
detergent directly into the drum.
– Do not load machine. The drum must be
empty for the maintenance wash.

Installation
The water protection system
The Miele water protection system
protects all parts of the washing
machine and its surroundings from
water damage.
The system consists of the following
main components:
– the inlet hose
– the electronic module and drainage
and overflow protection
– the drain hose
Inlet hoses
– Protection against the hoses bursting
The inlet hose can withstand
pressure of more than 7,000 kPa /
1,015.26 psi.
78
Electronic module and washing
machine housing
– Sump: Any leaking water is collected
in a sump in the base of the machine.
A float switches off the water inlet
valves, preventing any more water
from flowing into the machine and
water in the suds container is
pumped away.
– Overflow protection: This prevents
the washing machine taking in too
much water. If the water level
exceeds a certain level, the drain
pump switches on and pumps the
excess water away in a controlled
way.
Drain hose
The drain hose is protected by a
ventilation system which prevents the
washing machine from being emptied
completely.
Installation
Water intake
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 ¾" (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 (10.000 kPa)
pressure. The water valve connector
must also be able to withstand 145 psi
(10.000 kPa).
Maintenance
Only use a genuine Miele hose that has
been tested to withstand pressure of at
least 1,015 psi/7,000 kPa should you
ever need a replacement.
A filter is located in the open end of
the inlet hose and another in the
intake point to protect the inlet valve.
Neither filter may be removed.
Hose extension
Longer hoses of 8.2 ft (2.5 m) or 13 ft
(4.0 m) in length are available from your
Miele Dealer or the Miele Technical
Service as optional accessories.
 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.
79
Installation
Water drainage
The suds are drained through a drain
pump with a 3.2 ft (1 m) delivery head.
For the water to drain freely, the hose
must be installed free of kinks.
If required, the hose can be extended to
a length of up to 16.4 ft (5 m).
Accessories are available from your
Miele dealer or the Miele Technical
Service.
Drainage options:
1. Directly into a sink: Lay the hose
around the edge of the sink and
secure the drain hose so that it does
not slip (e.g., by securing the drain
hose to the faucet).
2. In a standpipe: Insert the drain hose
into standpipe with dimensions of
1½" (Ø 4 cm). Secure the drain hose
carefully to make sure it cannot slip.
3. In a floor drain: The washing machine
is designed with a gap (anti-siphon
system) which means that a
minimum drain height is not required.
