IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING –
When using your dishwasher, follow
basic precautions, including the
following:
Read all instructions before
installation or use of the dishwasher
to prevent injury and machine
damage.
Use the dishwasher only for its
intended purpose. This appliance is
intended for residential use only.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and pass them on to
any future user.
Correct usage
~ The dishwasher is not designed for
commercial use. It is intended for use in
domestic households and in similar
working and residential environments
such as, shops, offices and showrooms
or guest houses.
~ The dishwasher is not intended for
outdoor use.
~ It must only be used as a domestic
appliance as specified in these
operating instructions, for cleaning
domestic crockery and cutlery. Any
other usage is not supported by the
manufacturer and could be dangerous.
~ Persons who lack physical, sensory
or mental abilities, or experience with
the appliance should not use the
dishwasher without supervision or
instruction by a responsible person.
4
Electrical Safety
~ Before installation, make sure that
the voltage and frequency listed on the
data plate correspond with the
household electrical supply. This data
must correspond to prevent injury and
machine damage. Consult a qualified
electrician if in doubt.
~ Before installation or service,
disconnect the power supply to the
work area by unplugging the unit,
"tripping" the circuit breaker or
removing the fuse.
~ Do not use an extension cord to
connect this appliance to electricity.
Extension cords do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
~ Be certain your appliance is
properly installed and grounded by a
qualified technician. To guarantee the
electrical safety of this appliance
continuity must exist between the
appliance and an effective grounding
system. It is imperative that this basic
safety requirement be met. If there is
any doubt, have the electrical system of
the house checked by a qualified
electrician.
~ If the supplied power cord is
damaged it must only be replaced by a
Miele Service technician with a genuine
Miele power cord.
~ The outlet must be accessible at all
times after installation to disconnect the
dishwasher.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation
~ The dishwasher must be installed
and connected in accordance with the
installation instructions.
~ Installation and repair work should
be performed by a Miele authorized
service technician. Work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and may
void the warranty.
~ Do not install or use a damaged
dishwasher. A damaged appliance is
dangerous. Unplug the machine and
contact Miele Technical Service
Department.
~ Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of children.
Danger of suffocation!
~ This appliance must not be used in
a non-stationary location (e.g. on a
boat).
~ , WARNING - Fire hazard!
Do not cover or crush the plug of the
appliance. Ensure that the cabinet
opening for the dishwasher provides
ample space for the plug and cord.

space may crimp the power cord or put
pressure on the plug which could
cause overheating.
~ This dishwasher should only be
installed under a continuous counter
top secured to adjacent cabinetry.
~ Do not install this dishwasher
beneath a cooking surface, oven or any
appliance that radiates heat.
High temperatures from these units
may damage the dishwasher.
~ A toe-kick must be used with the
dishwasher. If the supplied toe-kick is
not used, a cabinet matching toe-kick
must be installed.
~ Do not install the dishwasher in an
area where it will be exposed to
temperatures below freezing.
~ Do not cut the intake hose or
submerge it in liquid. This hose
contains electrical components that
could cause injury or property damage
if cut or submerged.
~ Only power up the dishwasher when
all installation and plumbing work is
complete.
~ Do not place hose or power cord
next to a heat source e.g. hot water
pipes.
Do not expose hose or power cord to
corrosive substances.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Use
~ To reduce the risk of injury, do not
allow children to play in, on or near the
dishwasher. It is possible for small
fingers may be pinched in the door.
~ Only use the dishwasher if all panels
are properly in place.
~ Do not tamper with the controls.
~ Do not sit or stand on the door or
baskets of the dishwasher. Close the
door when not in use.
~ Under certain conditions, hydrogen
gas may be produced in a hot water
system that has not been used for two
weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS
EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has
not been used for such a period, turn
on all hot water faucets and let water
flow from each for several minutes
before using the dishwasher. This will
release any accumulated hydrogen
gas. Do not smoke or use an open
flame during this time.
~ Be sure that all items placed in the
dishwasher are "dishwasher safe". For
items not labeled, check the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
~ When loading tableware, place
sharp items away from the door to
prevent damage to the seal. Load
sharp items pointing downwards to
prevent injuries.
~ Only use detergents and rinse aids
recommended for residential
dishwashers. Keep all detergents and
rinse aids out of the reach of children.
6
~ Do not inhale or swallow detergents.
Dishwasher detergents contain irritant
and corrosive ingredients. They can
cause burning in the mouth and throat if
swallowed, or inhibit breathing. Consult
a doctor immediately if detergent has
been swallowed or inhaled.
~
Do not drink water from the
dishwasher! Harmful residues could be
present.
~ Do not fill the rinse aid reservoir or
salt container with detergent. It will
destroy the rinse aid compartment and
water softener.
~ Dishes can be very hot at the end of
a program. Allow the dishes to cool
until they are cool enough to handle
before unloading them.
~ The water supply must be turned off
when the appliance is not used for a
longer period of time (e.g. during

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 you
may 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.
^ Make full use of the baskets without
overloading for the most economical
washing.
^ Use the correct amount of detergent
and rinse aid. Detergent dosage is
dependent upon the amount of
soiling and type of dishware being
washed. See the "Program Guide" for
more information.
^ When using powder or gel detergent,
reduce the amount to 2/3 of the
normal amount when washing a small
load.
^ Choose a program that best suits the
degree of soiling and the type of
dishes being washed.
9

detergent will damage the reservoir.
Only pour rinse aid formulated for
residential dishwashers into the
reservoir.
When using "Tab" detergents rinse

until it its visible on the surface of the
screen.

the arrow until the flap springs open.
11
Before using for the first time

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.

Plumbing
Connection to the water
supply
,Installation, repairs and other
work by unqualified persons could
be dangerous.
,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 (max. 140°F / 60°C) or cold water
source.
For lowest energy consumption you
may 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.
– The inlet hose is approximately 5 ft.
(1.5 m) long.
– Water pressure: Must be between
4.5 - 145 psi (0.3 - 10 bar).
– If the water pressure if lower, a
"Water Intake" notification will be
shown. See "Frequently Asked
Questions" for more information.
– If the water pressure is higher than
shown, a pressure reducing valve
must be used.
Ensure that the water connection is
secure after the first use.
,To prevent damage to the
dishwasher, it must only be
connected to a fully vented drainage
system.
,Do not cut the intake hose. If the
hose is cut, the dishwasher will not
work. There will be a water leak. If
the hose is too long, coil it neatly
and place it behind or under the
machine.
– The water inlet hose comes
equipped with an inlet hose ending
with a 3/8" female compression
fitting. This can be directly
connected to a water supply valve or
to an appropriate coupling.
If not connected directly to a water
supply valve, an appropriate
adapter (not included) is required.
49
Plumbing
Drainage
– 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.
– 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).
– Use the clamp provided to attach the
hose to the dishwashers P trap or
disposal connection (see the
"Installation Diagram").
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
,Make sure the hose is not kinked
or cut when pushing the machine
under the countertop.
Venting the drainage system
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.
^ Open the dishwasher door and
remove the lower basket.
The hose must always be attached
on the sink side of the P trap.
When attaching the hose to a
garbage disposal fitting, make sure
the plug which is normally blocking
the fitting is knocked out or
removed.
– The hose can be angled to the left or
right side at the rear of the machine.
– The existing nipple that the drain
hose is connected to may be
designed for various hose diameters.
If the nipple diameter is to large or to
small it should be replaced or an
adapter may be used. If the nipple
extends more than 2" (50 mm) into
the drain hose it should be
shortened, or the hose could clog.
50
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove.
^ Cut off the vent cap located at the
right rear of the triple filter system, as
illustrated.
