IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
,WARNING - To reduce the risk of
fire, electric shock, or injury to
persons when using your appliance,
follow basic precautions, including
the following:
Read all instructions before using
the appliance.
Do not dry articles that have been
previously cleaned, washed,
soaked or spotted with gasoline,
dry-cleaning solvents or other
flammable or explosive substances.
They may give off vapors that could
ignite or explode.
Do not allow children to play on or
in the appliance. Close supervision
is necessary when the appliance is
used near children. Always close the
door after use to prevent child hazards.
Before this appliance is removed
for service or discarded, remove
the door to the drying compartment.
Do not reach into the dryer if the
drum is moving.
Do not install or store this
appliance where it will be exposed
to the weather.
Do not tamper
with the controls.
Do not repair or replace any part of
the appliance or attempt any
servicing unless specifically
recommended in these operating
instructions. Repairs to electrical
appliances should only be performed
by qualified personnel. Incorrectly
repaired machines may pose a
considerable risk to the user.
Do not use fabric softener sheets
to eliminate static in this dryer. Best
results are achieved when a liquid
softener is used in the washer.
Do not use heat to dry articles
containing foam rubber or similarly
textured rubber-like materials, or items
containing hair spray, nail polish
remover or similar substances.
Clean the lint filter before or after
each load.
Keep the area around the air intake
(toekick) and adjacent surrounding
areas free from lint, dust and dirt.
The interior of the machine should
be cleaned periodically by
qualified personnel.
Do not place items exposed to oils
in your dryer. Items contaminated
with oils may contribute to a chemical
reaction that could cause the laundry to
catch fire.
This dryer is intended for
residential use only!

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded.
In the event of malfunction or
breakdown, grounding will reduce the
risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric
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 properly
installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
WARNING – Improper connection
of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. Contact a qualified electrician if
you are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
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.

Installation tips
Leveling the dryer
An airflow gap of 3/8" (10 mm) must
be provided between the machine
and the floor. This airflow gap must
not be blocked by a toekick or thick
piled carpets.
Do not install the dryer next to a
refrigerator. The warm air exhausting
from the dryer can affect the
thermostat of the refrigerator,
causing it to run continuously.
^ The dryer must be level to ensure
safe and proper operation.
^ The machine can be leveled by
turning the legs clockwise or
counterclockwise as necessary.
29
Installation
External water drain
Rear dryer bottom
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
directly if the machine is installed near
a sink or a stand pipe so that the
condensed water container does not
have to be emptied.
The drain hose (approx. 6 ft [2 m] long)
is stored in the dryer. It must be pulled
out of the dryer to its full extent to
ensure proper external draining.
Maximum delivery head: 4 ft (1.2 m).
^ Unclip the drain hose, 3.
If the hose is not long enough, an
extension hose is available as an
optional accessory from the Miele.
^ Pull the drain hose, to its full extent,
out of the dryer towards the left, 4,
(see illustration).
Pulling out the drain hose
Rear dryer top
Do not pull or kink the drain hose,
it may be damaged!
^ Use the curved guide to prevent the
drain hose from becoming kinked
(see "Front view" illustration).
Draining the condensed water into a
sink
^ Secure the hose carefully, e.g. by
tying the hose to the water tap, to
avoid damage by overflowing water.
Connection to a stand pipe
^ Unclip the drain hose, 1, and pull it
off the holder 2.
30
^ Insert the drain hose into the
Y-adapter of the sink.
Installation
If the external drain is no longer used
,Do not push the drain hose back
into the dryer. It could become
kinked and damage the dryer.
^ Loop the drain hose up.
^ Use a suitable cable tie to secure the
looped hose to the back of the dryer
or store the looped hoses behind the
dryer.
^ Insert the drain hose to the holder
and secure it at the rear dryer top
(see holder, 2, "Pulling out the drain
hose").
