Warning and Safety instructions
The following points should be
observed to assist in maintaining
quality standards, to protect users,
and to avoid damage to the machine
and items being cleaned.
Only use cleaning agents
designed for use in this type of
machine. Using unsuitable cleaning
agents could adversely affect the
machine, as well as items being
cleaned.
Only use low-foaming cleaning
agents. Incorrect cleaning agents,
as well as some types of soiling, can
cause a build-up of foam in the drum.
Foam can have an adverse effect on
the cleaning process.
Where a chemical additive is
recommended on technical
application grounds (e.g. a cleaning
agent), this does not imply that the
manufacturer of the machine accepts
liability for the effect of the chemical on
the items being cleaned.
Please be aware that changes in
formulation, storage conditions etc,
which may not be publicised by the
chemical manufacturer, can have a
negative effect on the cleaning result.
When using cleaning agents and
special application chemicals, it is
essential that the manufacturer's
instructions are followed. Only use such
chemicals for the purpose and in the
situation specifed, to the exclusion of
other chemicals, to avoid such dangers
as chemical reactions and material
damage.
8
The machine is designed for
operation with water and additive
cleaning agents only. Organic solvents
must not be used in this machine, as
there is the danger under certain
circumstances of fire or explosion.
(Although this is not the case with all
organic solvents, other problems could
arise with their use, for example
damage to rubber and synthetic
materials).
In critical applications where very
stringent requirements have to be
met, it is strongly recommended that all
the relevant factors for the process,
such as cleaning agents, water quality
etc., are discussed with the Miele
Application Technology specialists.
If cleaning and rinsing results are
subject to particularly stringent
requirements (e.g. chemical analysis,
specialised industrial processes etc.), a
regular quality control test must be
carried out by the user to ensure that
required standards of cleanliness are
being achieved.
The special inserts should only be
used for their specific application.
Empty any containers or utensils
before arranging them in the
machine.
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not allow any remains of acids
or solvents, and in particular
hydrochloric acid or chloride solutions,
to get into the wash cabinet. Similarly
avoid any materials with a corrosive
effect.
The presence in compounds of any
solvents should be minimal (especially
those in hazard class A1).
To avoid any corrosion damage,
ensure that solutions or steam
containing hydrochloric acid do not
come into contact with the steel outer
casing of the machine.
Please follow the advice on
installation in these instructions
and the separate Installation
Instructions.
Accessories
Only use genuine Miele
accessories with this machine.
Consult Miele on the type and
application of such equipment.
Disposal of your old machine
Before disposing of your old
machine, first make it unusable.
Disconnect it from the mains, cut off the
cable near the machine and cut off and
render any plug unusable.
For environmental and safety reasons
ensure the machine is completely
drained of any residual water and
cleaning agent. (Observe safety
regulations and wear safety goggles
and gloves).
Make the door lock inoperative, so that
children cannot accidentally shut
themselves in. Then make appropriate
arrangements for the safe disposal of
the machine.
For tank system machines ensure that
any water is emptied out of the tank.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
9
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
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!
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure that they
are offered for recycling.
Disposal of your old machine
Electrical and electronic machines
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your machine.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre, and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
10
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person. The
plug must be rendered useless, and the
cable cut off directly behind it to
prevent misuse. See the "Warning and
Safety" section of this booklet for further
details.
Energy-saving washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in its use of water and
electricity. You can make the most of
your machine by following these tips:
^ If your household water system is
suitable, this dishwasher can be
connected to a hot water supply, for
further economies. *)
Although all stages of the wash
then take place with hot water,
savings are made in:
- the use of primary energy,
- costs,
- programme running time.
If, however, your water is heated by
electricity we would recommend
connection to cold water.
^ 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.
^ Follow the detergent manufacturer's
recommendations on detergent
dosage.
^ Use only 2/3 of the given dosage if
baskets are only half full.
*) Connect the dishwasher to cold water if it is mainly used for washing
glassware and beer glasses.
Before using for the first time
Before using the machine for
the first time you require:
– approx. 2 litres of water,
– approx. 2 kg dishwasher reactivation
salt,
– dishwasher detergent,
– rinse aid.
Every dishwasher is tested at the
factory.
There will be residual water in the
machine from this test. It is not an
indication that it has been used
previously.
11
Before using for the first time
To open the door
Child safety lock
The yellow key for the child safety
lock is on one of the spikes at the
front of the upper basket.
Remove the key before switching on
the dishwasher and keep it in a safe
place away from the dishwasher.
^ Press the release catch inside the
door grip and pull forward.
If the door is opened during operation
all functions are automatically
interrupted.
To close the door
^ Push the baskets right in, lift the door
and push until it clicks into position.
To prevent children opening the
dishwasher door during operation, use
the key to lock the door.
Horizontal setting:
The door is locked.
Vertical setting:
The door can be opened.
12
Before using for the first time
Water softener
In order to achieve good cleaning
results, the dishwasher needs to
operate with soft water. Hard water
results in the 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 requires
dishwasher reactivation salt.
– The dishwasher must be
programmed for the water hardness
in 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 1.4 - 3.1 mmol/l (8 - 17 °d
German scale) always programme the
dishwasher to the higher value
(3.1 mmol/l in this example).
The dishwasher is programmed at
the factory for a water hardness level
of 3.4 mmol/l (19 °d).
If this setting corresponds to the
hardness of your water you do not need
to do anything more.
If your water is harder or softer, you will
need to programme the water hardness
level using the buttons on the control
panel. Each time a button is pressed
one of the other indicator lights will
flash and light up in the control panel.
However, only the indicator lights
mentioned in the following
programming process stages are
significant.
The programming procedure can be
cancelled at any time by pressing
the On/Off button. The procedure
can then be re-started from the
beginning again.
In the case of a fault, it will help the
service technician if you know the
hardness of your local water supply.
^ Enter the water hardness below:
mmol/l or °d
13
Before using for the first time
Programming the water hardness
level
^ Switch the dishwasher off with the
On/Off button I-0.
^ Press the +c and h/f buttons in
and whilst holding them in switch
the dishwasher on with the On/Off
button I-0.
Then release these buttons.
The "Main wash/Rinses" l indicator
light will come on and the "Salt" k
indicator light will flash.
^ Use the programme selector buttons
%$ to select the value that
corresponds to your water hardness
level (see chart on the right).
Use the % button to scroll down and
select a lower value.
Use the $ button to scroll up and
increase the value.
The value selected will appear in the
display.
A two digit value flashes in the display
with one figure alternating with the
other.
If this does not happen, start the
procedure from the beginning again.
^ Press the Start/Stop button h/f
twice.
If the following flashes in the timer
display: a 19
The water hardness level has been set
to 2.5 mmol/l (19 °d).
The indicator light beside the h/f
button will flash.
The programmed water hardness level
is now stored in memory.
^ Switch the dishwasher off with the
On/Off button I-0.

Before using for the first time
Filling the salt reservoir
In order to achieve good cleaning
results, the dishwasher needs to
operate with soft water. Hard water
results in the 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
softener unit.
The softener unit requires dishwasher
salt.
,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.
^ Remove the lower basket and
unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
^ Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres
of water (first use only).
^ Your local water authority will be able
to advise you of the water hardness
level in your area.
If the water in your area is very soft
and constantly lower than
0.7 mmol/l (4 °d) you do not need
to add dishwasher salt.
Important: 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.
,Inadvertently filling the salt
reservoir with powder or liquid
dishwasher detergent always leads
to serious damage to the water
softener. Make sure you have picked
up the correct packet of dishwasher
salt before filling the salt reservoir!
16
^ 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.
Before using for the first time
As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced
water will overflow.
^ Clean any excess salt from around
the reservoir opening and then screw
the cap on again firmly.
^ Run the COLD I programme immediately to remove any traces of salt
water from the cabinet.
Salt indicator
The salt indicator light comes on to
notify you that the reservoir is empty.
Note
If the water in your area is very soft and
constantly lower than 0.7 mmol (4 °d)
you do not need to add salt to the
reservoir. The salt indicator light,
however, will still come on, but should
be ignored.
The salt refill indicator light is also used
as a programming interface point by
service technicians. See "After sales
service" for details of this.
^ The reservoir should then be refilled
with dishwasher salt.
(See: Filling the salt reservoir).
After the reservoir has been filled, the
water softener is automatically
reactivated the next time the
dishwasher is run. The salt indicator
light may still be illuminated during this
process. It will go out once the salt
concentration has reached the correct
level.
17
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Adding 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.
,Inadvertently filling the rinse aid
reservoir with powder or liquid
detergent always causes serious
damage to the reservoir. Only pour
rinse aid formulated for dishwashers
into the reservoir.
Alternatively, it is possible to use
– Household vinegar with a max. 5%
acid content
or
– Liquid citric acid up to 50% 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.
18
^ 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
Rinse aid indicator
When the light comes on the reservoir
contains sufficient rinse aid for 2 - 3
programmes only.
^ Add rinse aid only until it is visible on
the surface of the filter in the
opening.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
130 ml.
^ Add rinse aid in plenty of time.
^ Close the flap firmly so that it clicks
into place. Otherwise water would
enter the rinse aid reservoir during a
programme.
^ Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring
during the next programme.
19
Before using for the first time
Setting the rinse aid dosage
The dosage selector has settings from
1-6. It is set to "3" (3 ml) at the factory.
Approx. 3 ml of rinse aid are then used
per programme. This is a
recommended setting.
If spots appear on crockery and
glassware:
^ Use a higher setting.
If clouding or smearing appears on
crockery and glassware:
^ Use a lower setting.
20
Loading the machine
Preparing the load
^ Remove coarse residues and empty
all containers before loading into the
machine.
Please note
^ Load items so that water will come
into contact with all surfaces. This
ensures that they will be properly
cleaned.
^ Do not place items to be cleaned
inside other pieces where they may
be concealed.
^ Hollow items such as cups, glasses,
pots etc. should be inverted and
placed in the correct inserts. The water must be able to access them
unhindered.
^ Deep-sided items should be placed
at an angle to make sure water runs
off them freely.
^ Tall, narrow, hollow items should be
placed in the centre of the baskets to
ensure better water coverage.
^ Small items should be placed on the
cup racks in the upper basket. Do
not obscure them by larger items
below, e.g. place bowls on the rack
above the cups so that water reaches
all items.
^ The spray arms must not be blocked
by items which are too tall or which
hang down in their path. If in doubt,
test for free movement by manually
rotating the spray arms.
^ Do not place very tall items in the
front right hand area of the lower
basket as these would prevent the
detergent dispenser lid from
opening.
Use the upper basket for:
^ Small, lightweight delicate items such
as cups, saucers, glasses, dessert
bowls etc., as well as for lightweight,
thermally stable, plastic items.
Use the bottom basket for:
^ Larger and heavier items such as
plates, serving dishes, saucepans,
bowls etc. Glasses may only be
cleaned in the bottom basket if it is
fitted with a special glassware insert
or if there is a special bottom basket.
Cutlery
^ Unsorted cutlery should be placed in
the cutlery holders with the handles
facing downwards.
However, to avoid the risks of injury
etc. sharp knives and forks should be
placed with the pointed end facing
downwards.
Select baskets and inserts which are
appropriate for the application.
See examples on the following
pages.
21
Loading the machine
Items not suitable for
dishwashers:
– 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.
– Craft items, antiques, valuable vases
and decorative glassware are also
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 may discolour or become matt.
– Colours painted over a glaze may
fade after a number of washes.
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. Do not wash
delicate glassware, or glassware
containing lead crystal in a
dishwasher.
We recommend:
– When purchasing new crockery and
cutlery, make sure they are
dishwasher-proof.
– If delicate glassware is washed in the
dishwasher ensure that only very low
temperatures are used (see
programme chart). This will reduce
the risk of clouding.
– Wash particularly delicate glassware
by hand.
22
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 rubbing dry with a soft cloth.
Silver treated in a silver immersion dip
is usually dry at the end of a
programme but may tarnish.
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.
,Aluminium components (e.g.
grease filters) must not be cleaned
with caustic alkaline commercial or
industrial cleaning agents. These
may damage the material, or in
extreme cases, cause a severe
chemical reaction.

23
Loading the machine
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. Ensure, however, that the
basket can be inserted smoothly into
the cabinet. It is better to adjust the
basket before loading it.
^ Pull out the upper basket.
^ Pull upwards on the levers at either
side of the upper basket.
^ Adjust the basket to the desired

Operation
Detergent
,Only use detergents formulated
for dishwashers. Do not use washing
up liquid.
Do not use tablet detergent as the
short programme durations will not
allow the tablets to dissolve properly.
^ Use conventional powder detergent.
Refer to the dosing instructions given
by the manufacturer on the
packaging.
If you wish to use liquid detergent, you
will need to purchase a DOS G 60
dispensing module.
(See "Programming special functions,
Dispensing system settings").
Detergent manufacturers give the
required amount of detergent for a
particular programme on their
packaging.
^ Use at least 30 ml of detergent for a
full load in the following
programmes::
- MINI,
- MIDI,
- MAXI,
- BEER GLASSES,
- GLASSWARE.
If the manufacturer recommends
using more detergent than this, use
the amount recommended.
Failure to dispense the
recommended amount of detergent
may impair cleaning results.
^ Put powder detergent into the
dispenser compartment.
27
Operation
Adding detergent
,Avoid inhalation of powder
detergents and do not ingest
dishwasher detergent. Dishwasher
detergents contain irritant or
corrosive ingredients. They can
cause burning in the nose, mouth
and throat if swallowed, or inhibit
breathing. Consult a doctor immediately if detergent has been
swallowed or inhaled.
Keep detergent and other cleaning
agents 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. 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 child
safety lock.
^ Press the opening catch on the
detergent dispenser. The flap will
spring open.
The flap is always open at the end of a
programme.
See the programme chart for
recommended dispensing amounts.
For information
Compartment I holds max. 20 ml,
Compartment II holds max. 70 ml.
There are markings in compartment II
to assist with dispensing: 20, 25, 30.
The marks indicate a level of approx.
20, 25 or 30 ml when the door is open
in a horizontal position.

Cleaning and care
Check your dishwasher regularly
(approx. every 4 - 6 months). This
way faults and problems can be
avoided.
Cleaning the filters in the wash
cabinet
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.
,The dishwasher must not be
used without all the filters in place.
^ Turn the handle anti-clockwise to
release the filter combination.
Collection of coarse soil may cause the
filters to clog.
Check the filter combination regularly
(every 4 - 6 months) and clean if
necessary.
^ Switch the dishwasher off.
^ Lift the filter combination out of the
dishwasher. Remove any coarse
particles and rinse the filter under
running water. Use a nylon brush if
necessary.
41
Cleaning and care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened:
^ Pull back the yellow clip to do this.
^ Rinse all parts under running water,
using a nylon brush if necessary.
^ Then close the flap so that the catch
engages.
42
^ 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.
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:
^ Push the top spray arm upwards to
engage the inner ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
^ Push the middle spray arms upwards
a to engage the ratchet. Then
unscrew the spray arm b.
^ Remove the lower basket.
^ 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.
43
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the wash cabinet
Plastic panels:
The wash cabinet is largely
self-cleaning, provided that the correct
amount of detergent is always used.
^ This type of control panel should only
be wiped with a damp cloth or
suitable cleaning agent designed for
use on plastic.
Limescale or grease deposits in the
cabinet can be removed with a
proprietary dishwasher cleaner,
available from good retail outlets.
Cleaning the door and the door
seal
^ Wipe the door seals regularly with a
damp cloth to remove food deposits.
Stainless steel panels:
^ Control panels made of stainless
steel should be cleaned using a
damp cloth and a little washing up
liquid, or a proprietary non-abrasive
cleaning agent designed specifically
for use on stainless steel (do not use
it on the controls).
^ When the dishwasher is being
loaded, food and drink residue may
drip onto the sides of the dishwasher
door. These surfaces are outside the
wash cabinet and are not accessed
by water from the spray arms. Any
soiling should be wiped off these
surfaces before the door is closed.
^ To help prevent re-soiling, a
proprietary conditioning agent for
stainless steel, such as Neoblank
(available from the Miele Spare Parts
Department) can also be used.
E-Cloth
Aluminium is affected by the way that
light falls on it, by the surrounding
environment and by the angle you
observe it from.
^ A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available
from the Miele UK Spare Parts
Department, which is suitable for
cleaning surfaces such as stainless
steel, glass, plastic and chrome
without the use of chemicals.
Cleaning the control panel
,Do not use abrasive cleaning
agents, glass cleaning agents or allpurpose cleaners. Because of their
chemical composition they could
cause serious damage to surfaces.
44
Aluminium panels:
^ Clean aluminium panels with a damp
cloth and a little washing up liquid.
,Stainless steel and aluminium
surfaces and controls are
susceptible to scratching and
abrasion, and must be treated with
due care. They may suffer
discolouration or damage if soiling is
left on them for too long.
Remove soiling immediately.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the door front
^ Clean the front using a Miele E-cloth
or with a suitable cleaning agent for
the type of material the front is made
of. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
^ Door fronts made from wood should
only be cleaned using a damp
chamois leather and then dried with a
soft cloth.
^ Door fronts made of stainless steel
should be cleaned using a damp
cloth and a little washing up liquid, or
a proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use
on stainless steel.
^ To help prevent re-soiling, a
proprietary conditioning agent for
stainless steel, such as Neoblank
(available from the Miele Spare Parts
Department) can also be used.
,Do not use any cleaning agents
containing ammonia or thinners.
These would damage the surface
structure.

Problem solving
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. It must not be dipped in
water.
Recommendation
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 your Miele
dealer or the Miele Spare Parts
Department.
Cleaning the filter:
^ Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply (switch off at the mains
socket, pull out the plug, switch off
the appropriate circuit at the fuse box
or withdraw the mains fuse).
^ Close the stopcock.
^ Unscrew the inlet hose.
54
^ Carefully remove the seal.
^ Withdraw the filter using pointed
pliers and rinse clean under running
water.
^ 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.
^ Turn on the stopcock gradually to test
for leaks. If there is a leak, the inlet
hose might not be on securely, or it
may have been screwed on at an
angle. Unscrew and reconnect it to
the water inlet valve correctly.
Problem solving
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. Watch out for glass or bone
splinters which could cause injury.
^ Take the filter combination out of the
wash cabinet (see "Cleaning and
care", "Cleaning the filters in the wash
cabinet").
^ Scoop the water out of the cabinet
using a suitable container or utensil.
^ Raise the locking clamp for the
non-return valve.
55
Problem solving
^ Lift out the non-return valve and rinse
well under running water.
The drain pump is situated under the
non-return valve (see arrow).
^ Remove all foreign objects from the
non-return valve.
^ 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.
^ Carefully replace the non-return valve
and secure it with the locking clamp.

the kitchen. The plinth return is freely
adjustable.
Please refer to the separate installation
instructions supplied with "i"
dishwashers.
Installation
Built-under ("U") (without a lid or rear
panel) (G 8050 U)
Aligning and securing a "U"
dishwasher
^ Building-under:
To ensure stability, the dishwasher must
be fixed securely to the worktop. Two
securing pieces are supplied with the
dishwasher for this purpose.
Built-under machines are delivered
without a lid or rear panel.
The machine can be installed under a
continuous worktop or sink drainer.
The recess must be at least 60 cm
wide, 60 cm deep and 82 cm high.
Depending on the requirements for
building under, the following kits can be
ordered from Miele:
Cover plate (protects the worktop)
The underside of the worktop is
protected against water damage by a
stainless steel plate.
Decor frame fitting kit
The machine front can be fitted with a
decor panel to match kitchen units.
The decor frame is supplied with fitting
instructions.
^ Fit the securing pieces into the slots
on both the left and right hand sides.
^ Push the dishwasher right back into
its recess (making sure it is correctly
aligned).
^ Open the dishwasher door.
The holes in the securing pieces
must line up with the long holes in
the worktop cover plate. If this is not
the case, adjust the position of the
dishwasher in the niche (ensure that
the dishwasher is the same distance
from the neighbouring kitchen units
on the right and left hand sides and
line the dishwasher door front up
with neighbouring door fronts).
59
Installation
Granite and marble worktops:
With these worktops the dishwasher
must be securely screwed to
neighbouring units on the right and left
hand sides. For this you will require two
special fixing brackets (available as a

of the dishwasher fits directly
against the worktop.
If this is not the case, adjust the feet
a bit more.
Do not use silicone sealant to seal
the gaps between the machine and
any neighbouring units, as this
would hinder ventilation to the
circulation pump.
