Caring for the environment
Energy saving washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in the use of water and
electricity. For best results follow these
tips:
^ For lowest energy consumption and
the gentlest washing of china and
crystal, connect the dishwasher to a
cold water source.
^ For fastest possible wash times, yet
higher energy consumption, connect
the dishwasher to a hot water source.
^ If the dishwasher is connected to hot
water, select "Energy Saver" when
washing light to normally soiled
dishware. The water will not be
heated, therefore the dishes may be
more wet at the end of this program
than when using other programs.
^ Make full use of the baskets without
overloading for the most economical
washing.
^ Use the correct amount of detergent
and rinse aid.
^ When using powder or gel detergent
reduce the amount to 2/3 when
washing a small load.
^ Choose a program that best suits the
degree of soiling and the type of
dishes being washed.
^ For small loads select "Express".

13
Before using for the first time
Water softener
Every dishwasher is tested before
leaving the factory. Any water
remaining in the machine is from the
final factory test and does not
indicate that the machine has been
used.
To achieve good cleaning results, the
dishwasher needs soft water. Hard
water results in calcium deposits on
dishware and in the dishwasher.
If your tap water hardness is above 4 °d
(4 gr/gal [US]), the water should be
softened. This takes place
automatically in the unit’s integrated
water softener.
– The water softener must be filled with
dishwasher salt for reactivation.
If using "Tab" products which include
salt, you should still add salt to the
machine to achieve optimal cleaning
results.
If the hardness of your local supply
is constantly lower than 4 °d (4 gr/gal
[US]), you do not need to add water
softener salt. The "Refill salt"
indicator will turn itself off
automatically.
14
Checking the water hardness
The water hardness measured by the
sensor can be displayed.
See "Settings J - Water hardness".
External water softener
If the dishwasher is connected to an
external water softener unit which is
regenerated with salt, the water
hardness must be set in the
dishwasher.
^ Set the dishwasher to the water
hardness of the external water
softener. See "Settings J - External
water softener".
Before using for the first time
Filling the salt container
,Inadvertently filling the salt
container with dishwashing
detergent will damage the water
softener.
,Only use water softener salt
specially formulated for
dishwashers. Other salts may
contain insoluble additives which
can impair the water softener.
^ Remove the lower basket and
unscrew the salt container lid.
When opening the salt container,
water will run out. Open the
container only to refill salt.
Important: The salt container must
be filled with 2 quarts (2 l) of water
before adding salt for the first
time. Water does not have to be
added with subsequent refills.
^ Place the provided funnel over the
salt container. Carefully fill with salt.
The salt container holds approx.
4.5 lbs (2 kg) of salt. As it is filled,
water will run out.
^ Clean any excess salt from the
threads of the container opening.
Screw the lid on firmly.
^ If the dishwasher will not be used
immediately, run the "Express"
program (without the "Turbo"
function). This will remove any traces
of salt from inside the wash cabinet.
Salt refill message
^ When the display shows Insufficient
salt, refill the salt after the program
has finished.
^ Confirm with OK.
The message will clear from the display.
After the container has been filled, the
water softener is automatically
reactivated the next time the
dishwasher is started. The Insufficient
salt message will show again during
this process. Confirm again with OK.
15
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Rinse aid helps to prevent spotting on
dishes and glassware.
The rinse aid is filled in the reservoir
and the set amount will be
automatically dosed.
,Filling the rinse aid reservoir with
detergent will damage the reservoir.
Only pour rinse aid formulated for
residential dishwashers into the
reservoir.
When using "Tab" detergents, a
rinse aid is not needed.
Adding rinse aid
^ Pour liquid rinse aid into the reservoir
until it is visible on the surface of the
screen.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
3.7 oz (110 ml).
^ Press on the flap until you hear it
click shut. Failure to close it all the
way allows water to enter the
reservoir during the wash program.
^ Clean any spilled rinse aid. The flap
will remain closed during normal
operation.
To optimize the wash result, the rinse
aid dosage can be adjusted. See
"Settings J - Rinse aid".
^ Press the button in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
16
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid refill message
When the Insufficient rinse aid
message first comes on, there will be
enough rinse aid left for 2 - 3 washes.
^ Refill rinse aid after the program has
finished.
If the "Tab" function is selected, the
Insufficient rinse aid message will
not come on. See "Settings J Detergent".
^ Confirm with OK.
The Insufficient rinse aid message will
clear from the display.
17
Loading the dishwasher
,Do not wash items soiled with
ash, sand, wax, grease or paint in
the dishwasher.
Ash and sand do not dissolve and
will be distributed throughout the
inside of the dishwasher.
Wax, grease and paint will cause
permanent discoloration and
damage to the dishwasher.
^ Scrape food from dishes before
placing them in the dishwasher,
rinsing is not necessary.
^ Some foods contain natural dyes,
e.g. carrots or tomatoes. Plastic items
may discolor permanently if they
come in contact with food dyes.
^ All items can be placed anywhere in
the baskets.
^ Load dishes so that water can reach
all surfaces. Do not place dishes or
cutlery inside other pieces.
^ Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
^ Hollow items such as cups and
glasses should be placed upside
down in the baskets.
^ To ensure good water coverage,
tall, narrow and hollow items,
i.e. vases or champagne glasses,
should be placed in the center of the
basket rather than in the corners.
^ Concave based items such as mugs
or bowls, should be placed at an
angle so that water does not pool.
18
^ The spray arms must not be blocked
by items that are too tall or hang
through the baskets. Check
clearance by manually rotating the
spray arms.
^ Place very small items in the cutlery
tray or basket so they do not fall to
the bottom of the wash cabinet.
^ Food residue and spilled liquids
should be cleaned from the sides of
the dishwasher door. These are
outside of the wash cabinet and are
not cleaned by water from the spray
arms.

68
Cleaning and Care
Triple filter system
Cleaning the triple filter
The triple filter system in the base of the
wash cabinet prevents food from being
redeposited on dishes. It also protects
the circulation pump from damage
caused by foreign objects (e.g. broken
glass, bones, etc.).
,The machine must not be used
without all the filters in place!
Check and clean the filter system every
4-6 months or whenever a foreign
object is trapped. The level of soiling
and time it takes before the filters need
cleaning will vary depending on
household.
^ Turn off the dishwasher before
cleaning.
The display shows Filter check after
40 wash cycles (default setting).
^ Turn the handle counterclockwise to
release the triple filter system, a.
The filter check frequency can be
set from 30 to 60 cycles. See
"Settings J - Filter check".
^ Remove the triple filter from the
machine. Clean any solid particles
and rinse under running water. Scrub
with a nylon brush if necessary.
^ Check and clean the triple filter.
^ Confirm with OK.
The display changes to the program
menu.
69
Cleaning and Care

they rotate freely.
71
Cleaning and Care
Cleaning the water inlet filter
A filter is incorporated into the intake
hose attached to the dishwasher’s shut
off valve. If your water is hard or the
pipes contain sediment, this filter may
clog and prevent enough water from
entering the wash cabinet.
,The plastic housing of the water
connection contains electrical
wiring.
Do not cut the intake hose or
submerge it in liquid.
Installing an in-line water filter
If your water contains a large number of
insoluble substances, a filter between
the water valve and the intake hose
connection is recommended. These
filters can be purchased from Miele.
Cleaning the filter
^ Turn off the dishwasher and pull the
plug.
^ Turn off the water supply.
^ Unscrew the intake hose.
72
^ Carefully remove the rubber seal.
^ Remove the filter using needle nose
pliers and rinse it under running
water.
^ Reinsert the filter and seal. Make sure
they are seated correctly.
^ Screw the intake hose back on the
water valve, checking that it is not
cross-threaded.
^ Slowly turn on the water supply and
test for leaks.
Cleaning and Care
Cleaning the drain pump and
non-return valve
If the dishwasher is not completely
drained at the end of a program, the
drain pump or non-return valve may be
blocked.
^ Turn off the dishwasher and pull the
plug.
^ Remove the triple filter (see "Triple
filter system").
^ Use a cup or bowl to scoop water out
of the wash cabinet.
The drain pump is beneath the
non-return valve (see arrow).
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
drain pump (glass or bone splinters).
^ Before returning the non-return valve,
check that the drain pump is not
blocked. Spin the propeller several
times in both directions to check for
obstructions.
^ Carefully reinsert the non-return valve
and secure it with the locking clamp.
^ Tilt the locking clamp to the side a.
,Make sure the locking clamp
clicks into place!
^ Pull out the non-return valve b and
rinse it under running water.
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
non-return valve.

Installation Instructions
For installation of the dishwasher
please refer to the Installation Sheet
supplied with these instructions.
Electrical connection
,Installation, repairs and other
work by unqualified persons could
be dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held responsible for
unauthorized work.
Check that the voltage, frequency
and fuse rating shown on the data
plate match the household mains
supply.
The power outlet must be accessible
after installation. Do not use an
extension cord to connect the
dishwasher to the mains. Danger of
overheating! See data plate on the
right side of the door.
A damaged power cord must only
be replaced with a genuine Miele
cord by a Miele service technician.
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 the electrical
current. This appliance is equipped
with a cord having an equipment
grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is installed and
grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
76
,Improper connection of the
equipment grounding conductor
can result in electric shock. 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.
If there is any question
concerning the proper electrical
connection or grounding of this
appliance to the power supply,
please consult a licensed
electrician or call Miele’s
Technical Service Department:
U 1-800-999-1360
V 1-800-565-6435
Specifications
The dishwasher comes equipped with a
4 ft (1.2 m) power cord with a molded
plug for connection to 120 V, 60 Hz,
15 A grounded receptacle.
Plumbing
Waterproof system
All Miele dishwashers have a safety valve
located on the incoming water line and a
sealed underside with a water sensor.
If a fault occurs, the water intake is
stopped and the drain pump is activated.
Water damage, if any, is minimized.
Providing the dishwasher was installed
correctly by a Miele technician, the
waterproof system will protect you from
water damage throughout the lifetime of
the machine.
Connection to the water supply
,Do not drink water from the
dishwasher!
– The dishwasher can heat its own water
to the temperature required by the
wash program. This allows for
connection of the machine to either a
hot or cold water source. For lowest
energy consumption connect the
dishwasher to a cold water source. For
fastest possible wash times, with
slightly higher energy consumption,
connect the dishwasher to a hot water
source. All programs use hot water in
the rinse cycles.
– To use the "Energy Saver" program, a
hot water connection of minimum
115°F / 45°C and maximum 140°F /
60°C (water intake temperature) is
necessary.
The higher the water intake
temperature, the better the cleaning
and drying results.
– The inlet hose is approximately 5 ft.
(1.5m) long. A 5 ft. (1.5m) extension
hose is available from Miele.
– The water inlet hose comes equipped
with a 3/4" female hose thread
connector. This can be directly
connected to a water supply with 3/4"
MHT (male hose thread ends).
– Water pressure: Must be between 4.5 145 psi (0.3 - 10 bar).
If the water pressure is lower, the
display shows Water intake
see "Frequently asked questions".
With high water intake pressure, a
reducing valve must be used.
,To prevent damage to the
dishwasher, it must only be
connected to a fully vented drainage
system.
Do not cut the intake hose. It contains
electrical wiring. If the hose is cut, the
dishwasher will not work. There will be
a water leak and you could be injured.
If the hose is too long, coil it neatly
and place it behind the machine.
77
Plumbing
Drainage
Venting the drainage system
– The machine comes equipped with a
built-in non-return valve on the
discharge side to prevent waste
water from flowing back into the
dishwasher.
If the dishwasher drain hose is
connected to a floor drain or to a drain
pipe that is less than 8" (20 cm) above
the floor, the drain must be vented.
Otherwise the water inside the
dishwasher may siphon out during the
wash program.
– The dishwasher is equipped with a
5 ft (1.5 m) flexible drain hose with an
internal diameter of 7/8" (22 mm).
– Drain hose extensions and adapters
can be ordered from Miele.
The maximum drain hose length is
13 ft. (4 m), max. drain height: 39"
(1 m).
^ Open the dishwasher door and
remove the lower basket.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove.
– If the hose is to be directly fitted to
the drainage outlet on site, use the
supplied hose clip (see assembly
plan).
– The hose can be installed to the left
or right side.
– The existing drain pipe for the drain
hose is designed for various hose
diameters. The drain pipe must be
shortened if the drain pipe extends
too far into the drain hose. The drain
hose could get clogged.
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
,Make sure the hose is installed
without kinking, pressure or being
pulled.
78
^ Cut off the vent cap located at the
right rear of the triple filter system, as
illustrated.
