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 should 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.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
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 appliance.
Please do not therefore dispose it with
your household waste.
Energy saving tips
To avoid unnecessarily long drying
times and high consumption of energy:
– Make sure that your laundry is
thoroughly spun before drying.
The higher the spin, the greater the
savings that can be made in energy
and time during drying.
– Load according to the optimum
amount of laundry recommended for
the programme being used (see
Programme chart).
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives a poorer quality of
drying and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
– Make sure the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
– Make sure the fluff filters are clean
before using the dryer.
– Check the condenser unit from time
to time and clean it when necessary.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste recycling centre or
contact your dealer for advice. Ensure
that it presents no danger to children
while being stored for disposal.

any doubt, the household wiring system should be inspected by a
qualified electrician. Miele cannot be held liable for the
consequences of an inadequate earthing system (e.g. electric
shock).
~ Do not connect the tumble dryer to the mains electricity supply by
an extension lead. Extension leads do not guarantee the required
safety of the tumble dryer (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ If the electrical connection cable is faulty it must only be replaced
by a Miele approved service technician to protect the user from
danger.
~ Unauthorised repairs could result in unforeseen dangers for the
user, for which Miele cannot accept liability. Repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele approved service technician, otherwise any
subsequent damage will not be covered by the guarantee. Ensure
current is not supplied to the tumble dryer until after maintenance or

covered by the guarantee.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following textiles must not be dried
in this appliance:
– items which have not been washed.
– items, such as workwear, which have not been thoroughly
cleaned and which are still soiled with grease, oil or other
deposits (such as cosmetics, lotions etc).
If items have not been thoroughly cleaned there is a danger that
these might self-ignite when heated, even after they have been
removed from the dryer at the end of the programme.
– items (e.g. mops and floor cloths) which have been treated with
inflammable cleaning agents or which contain residues of
acetone, alcohol, benzine, petrol, kerosene, stain remover,
turpentine, wax and wax remover or other chemicals.
– items which have been splashed with hair lacquer, hair spray, nail
varnish remover or similar substances.
When washing such heavily soiled items, ensure that you use
additional detergent and select a high temperature. If in doubt,
wash the items several times.
~ Remove all items such as lighters and matches from pockets.
~ Warning: Do not switch the tumble dryer off before the drying
programme has finished. If this is done, the laundry must be hung
up or spread out to cool it down.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Danger.
This tumble dryer must not be connected to a controllable socket
(e.g. a timer switch or a peak load shut-off device).
If the dryer programme were to be interrupted before the end of the
cooling down phase, the laundry could self-combust.
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the following must not be tumble dried:
– items which have been cleaned using chemicals (e.g.
professional dry-cleaning agents).
– fabrics which contain a large proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber-like materials. For example, products made from latex
foam rubber, shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubberised articles
and items of clothing and pillows with foam rubber filling.
– damaged items which contain padding or fillings (e.g. pillows,
jackets). When damaged, the filling can get out with the risk of
igniting in the dryer.
~ In many programmes, the heating phase is followed by a cooling
down phase to ensure that the items are not too hot to handle when
you remove them (this also avoids the danger of the laundry
self-igniting). The programme is not finished until the cooling down
phase has been completed.
As soon as the programme has finished, remove all laundry from the
drum.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar products must be used according
to the instructions on the manufacturer's packaging.
~ Do not let anyone sit or lean on the door, as this can cause the
tumble dryer to tip up.
~ Always close the door after use. This way you will avoid the
danger of:
– children climbing into the dryer or hiding things in it.
– pets or other small animals climbing into it.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The dryer must not be used without the fluff filters in place or if
the fluff filters are damaged in any way.
~ The fluff filters must be cleaned regularly.
~ The dryer must not be used without the condenser unit in place.
~ The fluff filters must be thoroughly dried after cleaning. Damp or
wet filters could cause operational faults.
~ Do not install the tumble dryer in a room where there is a risk of
frost occurring. At temperatures around freezing point the tumble
dryer may not be able to operate properly. There is a risk of damage
if the condensed water is allowed to freeze in the pump and in the
drain hose. The ambient room temperature should be between +2°C
and +35°C.
~ If the water is drained externally instead of being collected in the
condensed water container, make sure the drain hose is securely
attached if you hang it in a sink or basin to avoid the hose slipping
and the water causing damage.
~ Condensed water is not drinking water.
It can cause health problems in both people and animals.
~ Always keep the area around the tumble dryer free of dust and
fluff. Dust drawn into the tumble dryer can cause blockages in the
condenser unit over time.
~ The tumble dryer must not be hosed down.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele original spare parts and accessories with
this tumble dryer.
If non-Miele parts are used, guarantee, performance and product
liability claims may be invalidated.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

Notes on laundry care
Care symbols
Before drying check the drying symbol
on the care label. If there are no
symbols, dry at your own risk!
q . . . . . . . . . Dry at normal temperature
r . . . . . . . . . . Dry at a low temperature
s . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Do not tumble dry
– For delicates and fabrics with the
following care label r select Low
temperature.
Tips on drying
– Always observe the maximum
recommended loads given in the
"Programme chart". Never overload
the drum.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry, give a
disappointing drying result and
cause more creasing.
– Do not put soaking wet items into the
tumble dryer. Spin them thoroughly
after washing using the appropriate
spin speed.
– Use the Automatic programme for
drying mixed loads of cottons and
minimum iron fabrics.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can, however,
be partially dried using the Woollens
handcare programme.
14
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label, as
the surface of the fabric may
otherwise become rough. It can be
partially dried using the Smoothing
programme.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not over-dry
these textiles. When purchasing
these garments it is advisable to take
their shrinkage properties into
account.
– Minimum iron fabrics tend to crease
more, the greater the load. This is
also the case for garments made
from very fine weave fabrics, such as
shirts or blouses.
If in doubt, reduce the load or use
the Minimum iron - Hand iron
programme.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– New dark coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately
from light coloured garments to avoid
the danger of colours running and
discolouring other garments or even
plastic components in the appliance.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.
How to dry correctly
Brief instructions
C Load the tumble dryer
The headings numbered (A, B, C ...)
show the operating sequence and can
be used as a brief guide to using your
dryer.
^ Press the Door button to open the
door.
^ Load the laundry loosely into the
drum.
A Sort the laundry
To ensure an even drying result
separate the washed laundry and sort it
according to:
. . . the drying level required
. . . the type of fibre or weave
. . . size
. . . the moisture content after spinning.
,Make sure that objects e.g.
detergent dispensing balls have
been removed from the laundry.
They could melt, and cause damage
to the dryer or the laundry.
Do not overload the drum. See the
"Programme chart" for
recommended loads for each
programme.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry and
give a disappointing drying result.
^ Before closing the door make sure
the fluff filter is correctly positioned.
– Check seams and stitching to ensure
that padding and linings are intact.
– Fasten duvet covers and pillow
cases to prevent small items from
being trapped inside them.
– Fasten hooks and eyes etc.
– Tie fabric belts and apron strings.
– Sew in or remove underwiring from
bras.
B Turn on the tumble dryer
^ Switch the dryer on by pressing the
jk button.
The tumble dryer may be switched on
after loading, saving energy as the
lighting will not come on.
Check the laundry is right inside the
drum so that it cannot get trapped or
damaged when the door is shut.
^ Shut the door either with a gentle
swing, or lean against it and push it
shut.
15
How to dry correctly
D Select a programme
E Start the programme
^ Press the Start button.
The indicator lamp for the Start button
will then change from flashing to being
on constantly.
The drying cycle begins.
Depending on the programme
selected, the drying stage reached is

panel.
Before the end of a programme
^ Turn the programme selector to the
required programme.
Low temperature
^ For drying particularly sensitive
fabrics (care symbol r) e.g. acrylics
turn the programme selector to the
Low temperature position.
Because the heater rating is reduced
for the Low temperature setting, clothes
dry more slowly thus lengthening drying
times.
The cooling down phase takes place
before the end of a programme so that
the garments are not too hot to handle
(the Cool air indicator lamp will come
on). The programme is not finished until
the cooling down phase is complete.
The Woollens handcare and Smoothing
programmes do not include a cooling
down phase.
At the end of a programme
The Finish/Anti-crease indicator lamp
comes on.
The drum will continue to rotate at
intervals to prevent laundry creasing, if
you do not wish to remove it immediately. The anti-crease phase lasts for an
hour. There is no anti-crease phase on
the Woollens handcare programme.
During the anti-crease phase . . .
. . . (depending on the programme
selected) the indicator lamp for the
drying stage reached will also light up.
. . . the buzzer will sound at intervals.
16
How to dry correctly
F Remove the laundry

Cleaning and care
Emptying the condensed water
container
The condensed water will be collected
in the condensed water container
unless the tumble dryer has been fitted
with a drain hose (see installation).
The condensed water container
should be emptied after every
drying cycle or as soon as the
Empty out container indicator lamp
comes on.
The drying programme will be
interrupted if the maximum level of the
condensed water container is reached.
The Empty out container indicator lamp
comes on and the buzzer sounds.
^ Open the shutter and empty out the
water.
^ To replace the container hold it at a
slight angle (as when removing it)
and push it in gently until you feel it
click into position.
^ Before starting a new programme,
first switch the tumble dryer off and
then on again. The Empty out
container indicator lamp will go out.
Condensed water should not be
consumed. It could lead to health
problems for people and animals.
^ Grip the container firmly with both
hands, as shown, and pull it out
slightly towards the right-hand side.
^ Hold the container with both hands
and carry it in a horizontal position.
20
Condensed water can be put to
household use (e.g. used in a steam
iron or humidifier). To ensure that any
residual particles of fluff in the
condensed water are removed before
use, pass it through a fine sieve or
paper filter first.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the fluff filters
The fluff which is created by the drying
process is collected by the fluff filters in
the door and the door opening. Clean
the filters after each drying programme.
Cleaning them whilst dry
Tip: You can also use a vacuum
cleaner.
^ Open the door and pull the fluff filter
(1) out of the door as illustrated.
^ Remove any fluff from the hollow part
of the door holder. A cleaning brush
is available as an optional extra from
Miele or use a vacuum cleaner.
^ Once clean, push the filter back into
the door holder until it clicks into
position. Ensure it is facing the
correct way.
^ Also clean the door seal (2) with a
damp cloth.
^ Use your fingers to remove the fluff
from the two fluff filters in the door
opening.
^ Close the door.
^ Use your fingers to remove the fluff
from the surface of the filter.
21
Cleaning and care
Cleaning them with water
If there is a great deal of compacted
fluff on any of the filters, they can be
removed and cleaned under hot
running water.
^ Open the door and pull the fluff filter
out of the door as described
previously.
The two filters in the door opening can
also be removed if you need to clean
them with water.
^ Turn dial a and pull the filter by the

Installation site
,Make sure the dryer door can be
opened without hindrance after
installation.
Transporting the tumble dryer to its
installation site
When moving the appliance, you can
hold it by the lid where it protrudes to
the rear of the dryer. To manoeuvre the
dryer out of its packing case to its
installation site hold it by the front feet
and at the back of the lid. Do not lift
the appliance by the drum door.
34
– The building-under kit is supplied
with its own installation instructions.
– N.B. When built under drying times
may be longer.
– The electrical socket must be
located in an accessible position
near the tumble dryer.
With niche heights of:
– 830-840 mm, longer screw feet* are
required.
– 870-885 / 915-930 mm, one or two
raising kits* are required.
* accessory available to order.
Replacing the lid
If the lid has been removed in order to
fit a coverplate, ensure that, if the lid is
ever replaced, it fits securely into the
rear holders. Otherwise, it is not
properly secure for transport.
Installation
Levelling the tumble dryer
,Do not block the gap between
the bottom of the tumble dryer and
the floor with plinth facings, deep
pile carpet etc. This would hinder a
sufficient flow of air to the dryer.
Room in which the dryer is located
The appliance must be perfectly level
to ensure safe and proper operation.
Air taken in for the drying process will
be warm when it is expelled from the
front of the dryer. This expelled air
heats up the air in the room. It is
therefore very important to ensure that
the room is adequately ventilated,
particularly if the dryer is located in a
small room. Otherwise drying durations
may be longer.
Washer-dryer stack
The tumble dryer can also be combined
with a Miele washing machine in a
washer-dryer stack. The appropriate
"WTV" stacking kit (available to order) to
match your dryer is required.
,Stacking kits must only be
installed by a suitably qualified fitter.
Before moving the tumble dryer
again (e.g. when moving house)
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
,The air inlet and outlet vents on
the front of the tumble dryer must
not be covered as this would
prevent sufficient ventilation for
cooling the condenser unit.
After each use a small quantity of
condensed water will collect in the area
around the pump. This water can run out
if the tumble dryer is tipped up when it is
being moved. It is a good idea to run the
Cool air programme for approximately 1
minute before moving the tumble dryer.
Any remaining condensed water will then
be fed into the condensed water
container or out through the drain hose.
35
Installation
External condensed water
outlet
General notes
^ There will be a small amount of
residual water in the drain hose.
Have a container ready to collect
this.
When drying is in progress, condensed
water is pumped into the condensed
water container through the drain hose at
the back of the dryer. The condensed
water can also be drained off directly if
the tumble dryer is installed near a sink,
drain outlet etc. so that the condensed
water container does not have to be
emptied.
Drain hose length . . . . . . . . . . . . 1.50 m
Maximum delivery head . . . . . . . 1.50 m
Maximum drain hose length . . . . 4.00 m
,If the on-site water drainage
system is not fitted with a non-return
valve or an appropriate air gap, one
must be fitted to prevent the risk of
back-flow. (See "Installation conditions
requiring a non-return valve").
^ Pull the hose off its connection (see
arrow).
^ Allow any residual water to run into
the container.
^ Unwind the hose and pull it carefully
out of the holders.
The following optional accessories are
available:
– an extension hose
– a non-return valve kit for connection
to an external condensed water
outlet (includes an extension hose).
Maximum delivery head with
non-return valve fitted: 1.00 m
Arranging the drain hose
,Do not pull on the drain hose and
do not stretch it or allow it to become
kinked as it could get damaged.
36
^ Position the hose to the right or left
hand side as necessary.
Leave the hose in the middle holder to
prevent it from becoming kinked
inadvertently.
Installation
External drainage via a sink or gully
^ See "Front view" illustration.
,If you want to drain the water off
into a sink you will need to secure
the hose carefully, e.g. by tying it to
a tap to make sure it cannot slip
during use. Otherwise there is a risk
of overflowing water which could
cause damage.
Example: Connection to a sink drain
outlet
The drain hose with non-return valve
fitted can be connected directly to a
suitable sink drain outlet.
^ Use the bow-shaped guide to
prevent the drain hose from
becoming kinked.
Installation conditions requiring a
non-return valve
,Certain installation conditions
require the fitting of a non-return
valve for external water
connection (available as an
optional accessory). A non-return
valve will prevent the risk of
back-flow out of the dryer which
could cause damage.
^ Remove the following from the back
of the dryer at the top:
Adapter 1 and hose clip 3 behind it.
A non-return valve is required:
– If the tumble dryer is connected to a
sink drain outlet (see the following
section).
– If the tumble dryer is connected to a
drainage system already in use by
another appliance, e.g. a dishwasher
or washing machine.
37
Installation
^ Fit adapter 1 to the sink drain outlet
using nut 2.
If this nut has a flat disc in it you
should take the disc out first.
^ Attach the end of hose 4 to adapter
1.
^ Use a screwdriver to tighten hose
clip 3 up close to the nut.

direction of flow (i.e. towards the
sink). Otherwise water will not drain
out of the appliance.
^ Fit non-return valve 5 to tumble dryer
drain hose 6 (make sure it is fitted in
the correct direction - see arrow on
