machine itself.
If the water supply is harder or softer
than the factory setting (including
below 4 gr/gal or 70 ppm), the setting
will need to be changed. See "Setting
the water softener".
– In order to function properly, the
water softener requires a supply of
reactivation salt.
– The cleaner must be correctly
programmed to match the hardness
of the tap water supply.
– Your local water authority can
provide information about the
hardness of the tap water in your
area.
If the water hardness is known to
fluctuate, always program for the
highest value.

wish to clean, the washer can be used
with an upper basket, lower basket, or
injector wagon, as well as an
assortment of inserts and special
baskets to suit your needs.
Baskets and inserts should be
properly selected to match the
application desired.
After every program completion,
conduct the following visual
inspection:
– Inspect the labware for cleanliness.
– Has any hollowware been dislodged
from its proper position on the
nozzles?
,Any items that were dislodged
from the adapters during a program
cycle must be washed again.
Before every program start, conduct
the following visual inspection:
– Are the cavities and channels in any
hollow vessels cleaned through?
– Is the labware properly loaded and
secured in the machine?
– Are the nozzles and connections
firmly attached to the
baskets/inserts?
– Are the hollow vessels properly
loaded so that all cavities and
channels will be flushed clean?
– Are the spray arms clean, and can
they rotate freely?
– Is the filter combination free of
coarse debris (remove any coarse
material and clean the coarse, fine,
flat, and micro-fine filters as
needed)?
– Is the basket adapter properly
connected to the water supply for the
spray arms and nozzles?
– Are the chemical dispensers filled?
24
Loading the machine
Loading the machine
Prepare items before loading
– Always load items in a way that all
surfaces are exposed. This ensures
that the items will be properly
cleaned.
^ Empty all glassware before loading
into the machine. Comply with all
applicable infection-control
regulations.
– Do not nest any items inside other
items. Keep each item separate.
^ Remove all agar residue from petri
dishes.
– Hollow vessels must be arranged for
complete inside exposure to the
cleaning water.
^ Remove any blood clots and blood
residue.
– Hollow vessels should be inverted
and placed in suitable baskets and
inserts so that water will have
unrestricted access and exit.
– Deep-based items should be
arranged at an angle, so that water
can run off easily.
– Tall, narrow pieces should be placed
in the center of the basket for best
water coverage.
– Baskets and inserts with an adapter
must be properly connected.
– The spray arms must not be blocked
by items that are too tall or hang
through the baskets.
– To avoid corrosion, only load
stainless steel instruments in good
condition.
– Do not use this machine to wash
nickel-plated items or discolored
(oxidized) aluminum items.
^ Remove all stoppers, corks, labels,
sealing wax residue, etc.
,Ensure that no acid or solvent
residues, especially hydrochloric
acid or chlorides, get inside the
machine.
Special preparations before
operating the machine
Items effected by heavy contamination
that resists removal, such as vacuum
grease, paper labels, etc., can affect
the cleaning and rinsing of the whole
load. Pre-treat these items before
loading.
Lab equipment that is contaminated by
microbiological material, pathogens,
propathogens, genetically altered
material, etc., may need to be sterilized
before being washed in the machine.
The user is responsible for this
decision.
– Do not load plastics unless they are
heat-resistant.

Petri dishes, or cylindrical items,
e.g., test tubes, can be cleaned inside
and out by the rotating spray arms.
For proper cleaning, load these items in
whole, half or quarter inserts, and place
them in an empty lower basket or upper
basket with spray arm.
Narrow-necked items, e.g., narrow
necked Erlenmeyer flasks, round flasks,
volumetric flasks and pipettes, require
the use of injector wagons or injector
baskets.
This section only covers basic
information on how to prepare and load
labware.
– Petri dishes and similar items should
be loaded in a suitable insert with the

Plumbing
Connecting the water inlet
,The water in the machine is not
drinkable.
– The machine must be connected to
the water supply in accordance with
local and national regulations.
– The washer is constructed so it may
be connected to a suitable supply
without an extra non-return valve
unless required by code.
– High iron content can leave a rust
film on stainless steel labware and
the machine itself.
When the chloride content in the
domestic water supply is above
100mg/l, the risk of corrosion
damage to stainless steel labware is
greatly increased.
– In certain regions (e.g., mountainous
areas) the water composition may
cause condensate to form, requiring
the use of softened water in the
steam condenser.
– An acceptable water pressure (flow
rate) is 10 - 147 psi. However, the
recommended pressure is
25 - 60 psi.
If the water pressure is below 30 psi,
the fill time will take longer.
If the "Fill/Drain" indicator fault code
"F..E" lights, contact the Miele
Technical Service Department.
– The maximum permissible static
water pressure is 145 psi over
pressure.
– If the water pressure lies outside
these ranges, please contact Miele
Technical Service for advice (the
"Fill/Drain" indicator, may appear in
the display "F E").
– The machine is designed for
connection to cold water (blue
marking) and hot water (red marking)
up to 158°F (70°C) max.
Connect the water intake hoses to
the cold and hot water faucets.
– If there is no hot water supply, the
intake hose with the red marking
must also be connected to the cold
water supply.
69
Plumbing
– Connect the intake hose for the
steam condenser (without water
safeguard) to the cold water faucet.
– See the next page for how to
connect the DI water line.
– Water valves with 3/4 inch thread are
to be provided on site. They should
be easily accessible, because the
water supply will need to be turned
off when not in use.
– The inlet hoses are approx. 5 ½ ft (1.7
m) long pressure hoses with 3/4 inch
thread. Do not remove the water
inlet filters in the threads.
– Install the large surface area filters
(in the kit supplied with the machine)
between the water valve and the
water inlet hose (see illustration in
"Cleaning the water inlet filters"). The
large surface area filter for distilled
water is made of stainless steel and
can be recognized by the matte
surface.
70
Do not cut or damage the inlet hose
in any way.
Please also refer to the installation
diagram.
Plumbing
DI Connection (pressurized)
The machine comes factory standard
for connection to a pressure resistant
system. The recommended water
pressure (flow rate) is 25 - 60 psi
however, water pressure that is
10 - 147 psi is acceptable.
^ The DI pressure tested hose (marked
"H2O pure" with a 3/4" hose thread
must be connected to the on-site
water valve for DI purified water.
If the DI water connection is not
used, the electronic needs to be
reprogrammed by Miele Technical
Service. The water intake hose
remains at the rear side of the
machine.
DI connection (unpressurized)
(optional)
For connection to 1.23 - 8.7 psi the
machine must be modified, if this has
not done at the factory. If a feed pump
is to be installed, this must only be
done by Miele Technical Service.
The discharge port for any DI
container (unpressurized) must be
at least the height of the upper edge
of the machine (see "Installation
instructions").
71
Plumbing
Drainage
^ The drainage system is fitted with a
non-return valve which prevents dirty
water from flowing back into the
machine via the drain hose.
^ The machine should preferably be
connected to a separate drainage
system onsite.
If separate drainage is not available
contact Miele Technical Service for
advice.
The onsite drain connection point
should be located between 1 ft.
(0.3 m) and 3 ft. (1 m) above the
lower edge of the machine.
If it is lower than 1 ft. (0.3 m), lay the
hose in a curve at a height of at least
1 ft. (0.3 m).
The drainage system must be able to
take a minimum drainage flow of
16 l/min.
^ The drain hose is approx. 5 ft.
(1.5 m), is flexible and has an internal
diameter of 7/8 in. (22 mm). It must
not be shortened. Hose clamps are
supplied for securing it in position.
^ A longer drain hose (up to 13 ft.
[4 m]) is available to order from
Miele.
^ The drainage system must not
exceed 13 ft. (4 meters).
