Warning and safety instructions
Read the operating instructions before using this machine for the first
time. They contain important information about the safety, use and
maintenance of the machine. This
way you will avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the machine.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and ensure that new
users are familiar with the content.
Pass them on to any future owner of
the machine.
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between the machine and an effective earthing system
which complies with local and national
regulations. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is regularly
tested by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
Only use the machine to wash
items which are specified by the
manufacturer to be machine-washable
on the wash-care label.
Any other applications may be dangerous. The manufacturer is not liable for
damage resulting from improper use or
operation.
The machine is built in accordance
with current safety requirements.
Unauthorised repairs could result in unforeseen dangers for the user, for which
the manufacturer cannot accept responsibility. Repairs should only be undertaken by a Miele approved
engineer.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
appliance while maintenance or repair
work is being carried out.
This machine should not be operated by children. Supervise its use
by the elderly or infirm.
The machine is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
Technical safety
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug is withdrawn, or
Correct usage
Before setting up the machine,
check it for any externally visible
damage. Do not install and use a damaged machine.
– it is switched off at the mains, or
– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
Before connecting the machine,
ensure that the connection data on
the data plate (fusing, voltage and frequency) match the mains electricity
supply. If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
5
Warning and safety instructions
The best materials are used in the
manufacture of this machine, and
every care is taken to check all parts.
However, with time, deterioration of
parts can occur, especially with such
components as hoses, giving rise to
leaks. This should be borne in mind if
operating the machine without supervision. Check the hoses regularly for
signs of wear, and change in good
time, to avoid leaks and subsequent
damage.
Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. Only when these parts are
fitted can the safety standards of the
machine be guaranteed.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the appliance and its surroundings in a clean
condition at all times. Any damage
which may be caused by cockroaches
or other vermin will not be covered by
the guarantee.
Use
Do not install the machine in rooms
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 point.
6
Before using the machine for the
first time, check that the transit fitting at the rear of the machine has been
removed (see section on "Installation").
During spinning, a transit fitting which is
still in place may result in damage to
both the machine and adjacent furniture or appliances.
Avoid contact of stainless steel surfaces (front, lid, casing) with liquid
cleaning and disinfecting agents which
contain chlorine or sodium
hypochlorite. These agents can have a
corrosive effect on stainless steel. Aggressive vapours containing chlorine
bleach can also be corrosive. Do not
store open containers of these agents
near the machine.
Turn off the stopcock if the machine is to be left for any length of
time (e.g. holiday), especially if there is
no floor drain (gully) in the immediate
vicinity.
Flooding danger
If hooking the drain hose into a
wash basin, check that the water can
drain off quickly enough to prevent the
sink from overflowing.
Make sure the drain hose is secure, so
that the force of the water flowing out of
the hose does not dislodge it. Otherwise this will result in flooding.
Take care to ensure that foreign objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins, paper
clips) do not find their way into the machine with the washing. These may
damage components of the machine
(e.g. suds container, drum), which in
turn can result in damage to the washing.
Warning and safety instructions
If the correct amount of detergent
is dispensed, the machine should
not need to be descaled. If, however,
you do wish to descale the machine
only use proprietary non-corrosive
descaling agents and strictly observe
the instructions on the packaging. If in
doubt contact the Miele Customer Service Dept. or your Miele Dealer.
Accessories
Textiles which have been
pre-treated in solvent based cleaning agents must be thoroughly rinsed in
clean water before being washed in the
machine.
Before discarding an old machine
unplug it. Render the plug useless.
Cut off the cable directly behind the appliance to prevent misuse. This should
be done by a competent person.
Accessory parts may only be fitted
when expressly approved by Miele.
If other parts are used, guarantee, performance and product liability claims
may be invalidated.
Disposal of your old machine
Never use solvent based cleaning
agents in this machine, as this may
result in damage to component parts
and create toxic fumes. Such detergents also pose a fire and explosion
hazard.
Only use dyes specified by the
manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a washing machine. Always observe the manufacturer’s instructions
carefully.
Colour run and dye removers may
contain sulphur compounds which
cause damage such as corrosion. Do
not use these products in this machine.
If washing at very high temperatures remember that the porthole
glass will be hot . Do not let children
touch it during a hot wash programme.
Always make sure the drum is stationary before reaching in to remove washing. Reaching into a moving
drum is extremely dangerous.

Caring for our 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 they are
offered for recycling.
Disposal of your old machine
Old machines contain materials which
can be recycled. Please contact your
dealer, your local waste collection centre or scrap merchant about potential
recycling schemes.
Ensure that the machine presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal. See the appropriate advice in the "Warning and safety instructions".

Economy tips
To help you wash most economically,
remember the following tips:
– Always wash with the maximum laundry load specified for each
programme. This uses the energy to
the best advantage.
– Only use the correct amount of detergent required as recommended by
the manufacturer on the detergent
package.
– If laundry is not heavily soiled, select
a lower temperature setting than indicated on the laundry care label. Use
the "Short" programme for laundry
that just needs freshening up, or is
only very lightly soiled.

How to wash correctly
Brief instructions
For brief instructions follows steps
(A,B,C ,...).
Before washing
A Sort the laundry.
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately several times before being included in a
mixed load.
Delicate textiles should be washed separately in a delicates programme (use a
washing bag where appropriate).
Only wash textiles made from wool or
wool mixtures if they are declared as
being suitable for machine washing on
the textile care label.
^ Pre-treating the washing.
Badly soiled areas, e.g. collars and
cuffs, and water soluble stains can be
pre-treated with bar soap, liquid detergent or detergent mixed into a solution
or paste.
With particularly stubborn stains ask
your dry cleaner for advice.
^ Empty all pockets.
Foreign objects (e.g. nails, coins,
paper clips, etc.) can cause damage to garments and components in
the machine.
Most garments have a textile care label
in the collar or side seam. Sort the laundry by care label symbols. See "Textile
care symbols" for an explanation of the
symbols.
Only wash items stated by the manufacturer to be machine washable on the
care label.
Do not use solvent-based cleaning
agents in this machine.
– With curtains:
Remove lead weights and strips or
place in a laundry bag.
– Bras:
Ensure any underwiring is securely
sewn in. If not remove it.
– Knitted garments, trousers and
jeans, T-shirts and sweat shirts:
Turn inside out if recommended by
the manufacturer.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc. before washing.
– Fasten duvet covers to prevent
smaller items rolling up inside them.

Ironing
Detergent
All modern detergents produced for
automatic washing machines are suitable, including liquid, compact (concentrated), and special application detergents.
Use dispensing aids, e.g. balls, if these
are supplied with the detergent.
Woollens and knitwear containing wool
mixtures should be washed using a detergent specifically designed for washing woollens.
Instructions for use and recommended
amounts are given on the detergent
packaging.
The right amount to dispense will depend on the following:
– The quantity of laundry
– The soiling level of the laundry
Lightly soiled
No visible dirt or stains. Possibly
slight body odour.
See "Problem solving guide" for advice
on how to deal with textiles heavily
soiled with oil or grease.

If you do not know the hardness level
contact your local water authority
who will be able to advise you.
– Excessive foam.
– Low level of agitation.
– Poor wash, rinse and spin results.
– A burden to the environment.

used when an additional rinse might
be needed after a programme has
run.
Sluice programme
The sluice programme is only available on drain valve versions of the
machine.
It is suitable for heavily soiled cotton

25
Cleaning and care
Extra cleaning
Disconnect the machine from the
mains electricity supply and withdraw the plug from the socket prior
to cleaning the machine.
Cleaning the machine
^ Clean the casing with a mild
non-abrasive detergent or soap and
water. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ Clean the control panel with a damp
cloth and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ The drum and any other stainless
steel components can be cleaned
using a suitable proprietary stainless-steel cleaning agent. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions on the
packaging.
Do not use abrasive cleaning
agents, disinfecting agents or solvents.
These can cause considerable damage to the machine because of the
chemicals they contain.
Avoid contact of stainless steel surfaces (front, lid, casing) with liquid
cleaning and disinfecting agents
which contain chlorine or sodium
hypochlorite. These agents can
have a corrosive effect on stainless
steel. Aggressive vapours containing chlorine bleach can also be corrosive. Do not store open containers
of these agents near the machine.
26
If you wash mainly with low temperatures it is a good idea to carry out a hot
wash approx. every six weeks. This will
help prevent deposits and unpleasant
smells building up in the machine
which can occur when washing is
mainly done at low temperatures. If you
have no reason to wash occasionally at
this high temperature, then run a Cottons 95ºC programme with detergent
but no laundry at regular intervals.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the drainage system
Check the fluff filter, initially after 3 - 4
washes to ascertain how often it is likely
to require cleaning.
^ Place a suitable container (2 litres)
underneath the drain fixture.
Under normal conditions approx. 2
litres of water will drain out of the machine when the fluff filter is removed.
However, if the drain outlet is blocked,
more water will be retained in the machine (max. 30 litres).
Caution: if laundry has been washed
at a high temperature, water draining out of the machine will still be
hot. Danger of scalding or burning.
^ Switch the machine off (either open
the door or switch off at the mains
and withdraw the plug).
^ Turn the fluff filter lid round 2-3 times.
Do not take it right out.
Approx. 2 litres of water will drain out.
If there is a blockage more water than
this will drain out and the container will
need to be emptied several times.
To stop the flow of water:
^ Secure the fluff filter back into position.
^ Empty the container and repeat the
process until all the water has been
emptied
^ Open the drain access flap.
27
Cleaning and care
^ Once the flow of water ceases, remove the fluff filter completely and
clean it.
^ Remove any foreign objects (buttons,
coins etc.) and fluff.
^ Turn the impeller by hand to check
that it is free to rotate.
Any foreign object causing an obstruction must be removed.
^ Clean the inside of fluff filter housing.
Remove any deposits of limescale and
detergent or foreign objects from the
thread of the filter housing and filter
unit.
^ Put the fluff filter back in place and
secure.
Make sure the fluff filter is securely
tightened. Otherwise there is a danger of water leakage during use.
Machines with a drain valve do not
require this cleaning process to be
carried out.
28
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer
Remove detergent residues regularly.
^ Clean the detergent dispenser compartments and the fabric conditioner
compartment with warm water.
^ Pull out the detergent dispenser
drawer until a resistance is felt. Press
down the red release catch and at
the same time pull the drawer right
out of the machine.
^ Remove the siphon from
compartment p and rinse under
warm running water.
^ Then clean the tube that it sits over
using warm water.
^ Replace the siphon securely.
29
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the filters in the water
inlet
The machine has the following filters to
protect the inlet valves:
– in the free end of any water inlet hose
– in the water inlet valve(s) for connecting the hose(s) to the machine.
To clean the filter in the inlet hose:
^ Turn off the stopcock.
^ Put the filter and seal back in the reverse order and reconnect the hose
to the check valve. Turn on the stopcock and check the connection is
watertight.
The filters in the inlet hose should be
checked and cleaned approx. every 6
months.
Inspect the inlet hose as it is subjected
to high pressure while the machine is in
operation. The hose should be replaced if there is any sign of damage
such as stress cracks in the surface.
If replacing the inlet hose only use a
hose tested to withstand a pressure of
at least 70 bar. Miele original hoses are
tested to this standard.
^ Carefuly unscrew the knurled coupling connecting the inlet hose to the
check valve which is attached to the
stopcock (see "Plumbing").
^ Remove the rubber seal from the recess.
^ Using pointed pliers, take hold of the
plastic filter bar, remove the filter and
clean.
30
Cleaning and care
To clean the filter in the water inlet
valve:
^ Using pliers, carefully loosen the
ribbed plastic nut on the inlet valve,
and unscrew.
^ Using pointed pliers withdraw the
plastic filter by the bar (see illustration).
^ Clean the plastic filter.
^ Put back in the reverse order.
Both filters - one in the pressure
hose union and one in the water inlet
valve must always be replaced after
being cleaned.

Installation
Installation surface
A concrete floor is the most suitable
surface for a washing machine, being
far less prone to vibration during the
spin cycle than wooden floorboards or
a carpeted surface.
Please note the following points:
^ The machine must be level and securely positioned.
Do not install the machine near or directly above an open gully or floor
drain. Moisture from these can penetrate the machine and damage the
electric components.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
If installing on a wooden floor joist:
^ We recommend a plywoood base (at
least 70 x 60 x 3 cm).
The base should span several joists
and be bolted to the joists and not
only to the floorboards. Check for the
presence of pipes and cables first.
If possible, install the machine in a corner, as this is usually the most stable
part of the floor.
If the machine is installed on a
raised plinth, it must be secured using the butt straps supplied with the
machine.
Follow the installation instructions
supplied.
Installation
Lift the machine from its packaging
base and move it to its site.
Please note:
^ Do not lift the machine by the drum
door.
Ensure that the machine feet and the
floor area are dry to prevent the machine from slipping during the spin
cycle.

Plumbing
This machine is approved for all UK applications as suitable for category 5.
Product is listed in the WRAS regulations advisory scheme directory and is
suitable for direct connection to mains
drinking water. No special plumbing arrangements e.g. break tanks are required.
A Water Council approved check valve
is supplied in the accessories pack
provided with this machine. It should be
fitted in between the stopcock(s) and
the water inlet hose(s).
The machine should be connected to
the water supply in accordance with local and national safety regulations.
Connection to the water supply should
be carried out by a qualified plumber
and should incorporate a stopcock with
a 3/4" thread.
The machine is supplied as standard
with two hoses, for connection to a hot
and cold water supply.
Connection to cold water supply
The approx. 1.5 m long 3/8" pressure
hose (blue stripes) should be connected to the check valve on the stopcock via the 3/4" threaded union.
This hose is not suitable for connection
to a hot water supply.
Make sure that the washer sits correctly
in the union.
The connection points are subject to
water pressure. Turn on the stopcock
slowly and check for leaks. Correct the
positioning of the washers and screw
unions if appropriate.
48
If replacing the inlet hose only use a
hose tested to withstand pressure of
at least 70 bar. This also applies to all
fittings used. Miele original parts are
tested to this standard.
Longer hoses 2.5 or 4.0 m in length are
available as optional extras.
The pressure hose and solenoid inlet
valve are designed for a water flow
pressure of between 1 and 10 bar. At
higher water pressures it is essential to
fit a reducer valve.
There is a minimum flow pressure of 1
bar if 5 litres of water flow into a suitable container in 15 seconds.

down this machine can be connected
to a (ring) piped hot water supply. The
maximum temperature must not exceed
70°C.
It is not economical to run it from an individual hot water supply if it is not in
continuous use, as the water in the supply pipes cools down and more energy
would be required to reheat the water.
For operational reasons the machine
must not be connected to hot water
only.
For hot water connection the same conditions apply as for cold water connection.
If the machine is not installed for hot
water connection:
^ Both inlet hoses can be connected to
cold water using an adapter piece,
without the machine being reprogrammed.
or
^ unscrew inlet hose (red stripes)
^ plug the inlet connection with the cap
supplied.
^ The machine will have to be reprogrammed by an authorised service
dealer.

Installation
Connection to drainage
Machines with a drain pump
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a max. delivery head of 1 metre.
The 1.5 metre long drain hose must not
be kinked as this would restrict drainage.
The hook in the end of the drain hose
can be turned or taken off if required.
The drain hose may be connected as
follows:
– Direct into a sink (drain pump version
LP).
Hook the hose over the edge of the
sink and secure . Make sure that the
water can flow away freely to avoid
flooding and to prevent water from
being sucked back into the machine.
– Connected securely to a plastic drain
pipe with a rubber seal. There is no
need to use a non-return valve.
– Directed securely into a standpipe,
(seal the hose into the pipe to avoid
flooding in case of the drainpipe being blocked).
– Directly into a floor drain (gully).
The drain hose can be extended to 5
metres.
The accessories required can be purchased from the Miele Spare Parts
Dept.
For draining the water away with a delivery head over 1 metre (and up to a
max. of 1.8 metres) a 2nd "Duo-drain
pump" can be connected. Contact your
Miele Dealer or the Professional Sales
Dept.

Drain valve version
A motorised drain valve is used to drain
the machine. The DN 70 angle hose
provided enables the machine to be
drained via an on-site gully (with odour
trap).
