10
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
 Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause
considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance and repairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.
 A damaged dishwasher is dangerous. Check it for any recognisable damage. Never install or attempt to use a damaged appliance.
 The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety requirement is met. If in any doubt, please have the electrical installation tested 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 using a suitable fused plug (it must
not be hard-wired). 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 hob. The high radiant temperatures which are sometimes generated by a hob 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.
 To avoid the risk of damage to the dishwasher, make sure that the
connection data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and frequency) match the mains electricity supply before connecting the
dishwasher to the mains. Consult a qualified electrician if in doubt.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 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 danger
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 (fire hazard).
 The appliance must not be used in a non-stationary location (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
component. It must not be dipped in water.
 There are electrical wires in the water inlet hose. Do not shorten
the water inlet hose, even if it is too long.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
 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 stopcock is turned off during longer absences from the home
(e.g. whilst on holiday).
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 take-off point) must be
between 50 and 1000 kPa (0.5 and 10 bar).
 If the dishwasher gets damaged, switch it off at the mains immediately and call your Miele Dealer or the Miele Service Department.
 While the appliance is under warranty, repairs should only be undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the
warranty is invalidated.
 Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when genuine original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components
must only be replaced by Miele spare parts.
 During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply (switch it off
and withdraw the plug from the socket).
 If the connection cable is damaged it must be replaced with a
special cable of the same type (available from Miele). For safety reasons this work must be carried out by a Miele authorised service
technician only.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
 This dishwasher is supplied with a special lamp 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 it is intended for. It is not suitable for room
lighting. Replacement lamps may only be fitted by a Miele authorised
person or the Miele Service Department.
Correct installation
 The dishwasher must be installed and connected in compliance
with the installation sheet supplied.
 Take care, both before and during installation of the dishwasher, not to cut yourself on the metal parts. Danger of injury. Wear protective gloves.
 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 built-under ("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 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 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. Dishwasher detergents can cause burning in the nose, mouth and throat if swallowed,
or inhibit breathing. Seek medical attention immediately if detergent
has been swallowed or inhaled.
 You could injure yourself on the open dishwasher door or trip over
it. Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily.
 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 the 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 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
 Only use genuine original Miele accessories and spare parts with
this appliance. Using accessories or spare parts from other manufacturers will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.
Disposal of your old dishwasher
 Make the door lock inoperative so that children cannot accidentally shut themselves in. 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 packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should 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.
Please dispose of it at your local community waste collection / recycling
centre for electrical and electronic appliances, or contact your dealer or
Miele for advice. You are also responsible (by law, depending on country) for
deleting any personal data that may be
stored on the appliance being disposed
of. Please ensure that your old appliance poses no risk to children while being stored prior to disposal.
17
Caring for the environment
Energy saving washing
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 (depending on model) 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 deter1
gent 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 for example, solar panels, this
would be energy efficient.
However, if your water is heated by
electricity we would recommend connection to cold water.
18
Before using for the first time
Opening the door
Closing the door
In some programmes the door automatically opens slightly to assist the drying
process.
This function can be deactivated, if preferred (see "Programme options,
AutoOpen").
 Push the baskets right in.
 Then raise the door up, and push until it clicks into position.
 Danger of injury.
Do not put your hand inside the door
as it is closing.
 Pull the handle to open the door.
 Open the door completely to re-engage the door closing mechanism.
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.
 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 or °d
– 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 2.7
mmol/l (15 °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
 Open the door.
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button, if it is switched on.
 Press the programme selector button
 in, and whilst holding it in switch
the dishwasher on using the  button.
Keep the programme selector button
 pressed in for at least four seconds
until the lower right hand programme
indicator comes on.
If this does not happen, start the procedure from the beginning again.
 Press the  button twice.
The  indicator will flash rapidly twice
at intervals.
The value 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
15 °d.
 Use the programme selector button
 to select the value which equates
to your water hardness level.
Each press on 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.
Other salts 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
Adding salt
Important! Before filling the salt
reservoir 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 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 at the end of the programme if
the salt indicator light comes on.
 Danger of corrosion!
Immediately after filling the salt container, run the QuickPowerWash programme with the Short option and
without any load in the dishwasher to
dissolve and remove any traces of
salt from the cabinet.
If you only ever use combination
products in your dishwasher, you can
switch both refill reminders for salt
and rinse aid off if you wish (see "Programme options, Refill reminders").
If you switch to using detergent that
does not contain salt or rinse aid, it
is important to remember to add salt
and rinse aid and to switch the reminders back on.
After the salt reservoir has been filled,
the refill reminder may still appear in the
display if the salt concentration has not
yet reached the correct level. It will go
out once the salt concentration has
reached the correct level.
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 washing-up liquid or
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

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. These will
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.
– 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
ketchup. 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.
– Load the crockery so that water can
access all surfaces. This ensures that
they get properly cleaned.
– 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.
– 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.
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.
cooker hood 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: such items
are not suitable for dishwashers.
– Plastic items which are not heat resistant: the high temperatures in the
dishwasher may cause them to melt
or lose shape.
– Copper, brass, tin and aluminium
items: these may discolour or become matt.
– Colours painted over a glaze: these
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
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 glass-care 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 lower 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 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 size of the load and level of soiling.
– Tab detergents. These are suitable for
most levels of soiling.
42
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

Keep detergent out of the reach of
children at all times. Keep children
away from the dishwasher when the
door is open. There could still be detergent residues in the cabinet. 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.
 Tabs may not dissolve completely
when the QuickPowerWash programme (if available) is used.
Failure to dispense the recommended amount of detergent may impair
cleaning results.

Cleaning and care
Check your dishwasher regularly (approx. every 4 - 6 months). This way
faults and problems can be avoided.
 The external surfaces of the
dishwasher are susceptible to
scratching.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the external surfaces.
Cleaning the wash cabinet
The wash cabinet is largely self-cleaning, provided that the correct amount of
detergent is always used.
If, however, there are limescale or
grease deposits in the cabinet, these
can be removed with a special cleaning
agent (available from Miele). Follow the
instructions on the packaging.
If you mainly use low temperature programmes (below 50 °C), there is a risk
of bacteria and unpleasant odours
building up in the wash cabinet. To prevent this happening the dishwasher will
automatically increase the temperature
in the final rinse of the selected programme after several programmes using low temperatures have been run.
 Clean the filters in the wash cabinet
regularly.
64
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 so not accessed and
cleaned by the spray arm jets.
 Wipe the door seal regularly with a
damp cloth to remove food deposits.
 Wipe off any food or drink residues
which may have dripped onto the
sides of dishwasher door before closing it.
Cleaning the control panel
 The control panel should only be
wiped with a damp cloth.
Cleaning the reflector panel
The reflector panel for the In-operation
indicator light is situated in the coverplate underneath the worktop.
 The reflector panel should only be
wiped with a damp cloth or a suitable
cleaning agent designed for use on
plastic.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the door front
 Soiling that is left too long might
become impossible to remove and
could cause the external surfaces to
alter or discolour.
Remove any soiling immediately.
 Clean the front with a clean sponge
and a solution of hot water and washing-up liquid. After cleaning dry with a
soft cloth.
A clean, damp microfibre cloth
without cleaning agent can also be
used.
To avoid damaging the 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 sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges,
e.g. pot scourers, brushes or
sponges which have been previously
used with abrasive cleaning agents,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers,
– wire wool,
– steam cleaning appliances.
65
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.
 Make sure that when cleaning
the filters, no coarse soil falls into the
circulation system, causing a blockage.
66
Cleaning and care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened:
 Press 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 to
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.
67
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.
 Replace the spray arms and check
that they rotate freely.
68

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 seal.
If the mains water contains a large number of insoluble substances, we recommend fitting a large-area filter in the
connection between the stopcock 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.
 Close the stopcock.
 Unscrew the inlet hose.
 Replace the filter and seal, making
sure they are sitting correctly.
 Reconnect the inlet hose to the stopcock, making sure it goes on correctly and is not cross-threaded.
 Open the stopcock.
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 water inlet valve correctly.
79
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 carefully (watch out for
glass splinters which are particularly
difficult to detect). 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 replace the non-return
valve.
 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
The appliance is supplied with a mains
cable with moulded plug ready for connection to a 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).
If the connection cable is damaged, it
must be replaced with a Miele cable of
the same type (available from Miele) by
a Miele approved service technician or
suitably qualified person only.
Do not connect the appliance 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 appliance must not be used with
so-called energy-saving devices
either. These reduce the amount of energy supplied to the appliance, causing
it to overheat.
84
 Before connecting the appliance,
check that the connection data on
the data plate (voltage, frequency
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.
 The electrical installation must
be in compliance with current local
and national safety regulations. In

Plumbing
The Miele waterproof anti-leak
system
Provided your dishwasher has been installed correctly, the Miele WaterProof
System will protect you from water
damage throughout its lifetime.
Connection to the water supply
After connecting the dishwasher to
the water supply, check that all
plumbing connections are watertight.
 To avoid any damage to the appliance, the dishwasher must only be
operated when it is connected to a
fully vented plumbing system.
 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 programme stages which
would otherwise be carried out with
cold water will be carried out with hot
water.
– The inlet hose is approx. 1.5 m long.
A 1.5 m long flexible metal extension
hose (pressure tested to 14000
kPa/140 bar) is available as an optional accessory, if required.
 The inlet hose must not be
shortened or damaged in any way as
it contains electrical components
(see illustration).
– A stopcock with a 3/4" male thread
must be provided on site.
– This appliance is constructed to
comply with IEC/EN/DIN 61770 //
VDE 0700 Section 600, and may be
connected to a suitable supply
without an extra non-return valve if
national regulations permit.
– 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.

Plumbing
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
sheet).
– 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 connecting the dishwasher to
the drainage system, check that all
plumbing connections are watertight.
86
 Pull the lower spray arm firmly upwards to remove it.
 Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash cabinet.
