Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
 Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be danger‐
ous. Installation, maintenance work and repairs to electrical applian‐
ces must only be carried out by a Miele approved service technician.
 Before installation, check the dishwasher for visible signs of dam‐
age. Under no circumstances should you use a damaged dishwash‐
er. A damaged dishwasher could be dangerous.
 The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing
system. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is
present and regularly tested and, where there is any doubt, the elec‐
trical system in the house should be checked by a qualified electri‐
cian.
Miele cannot be held liable for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
 The dishwasher must only be plugged into the electricity supply
via a suitable switched socket. The electrical socket must be easily
accessible after the dishwasher is installed so that it can be discon‐
nected from the electricity supply at any time.
 There must be no electrical sockets behind the dishwasher. Dan‐
ger of overheating and fire risk if the dishwasher were to be pushed
up against a plug.
 The dishwasher must not be installed under a cooktop. The high
radiant temperatures which are sometimes generated by a cooktop
could damage the dishwasher. For the same reason, it should not be
installed next to open fires or other appliances which give off heat,
such as heaters etc.
 To avoid the risk of damage to the dishwasher, make sure that the
connection data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and frequen‐
cy) matches the mains electricity supply before connecting the dish‐
washer to the mains. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 Do not connect the dishwasher to the mains supply until it has
been fully installed and any adjustment has been made to the door
springs.
 Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension lead. These do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
 This appliance must not be installed and operated in mobile in‐
stallations (e.g. on a ship).
 Do not install the dishwasher in a room where there is a risk of
frost. Frozen hoses may burst or split. The reliability of the electronic
control unit may be impaired at temperatures below freezing point.
 The plastic housing of the water connection contains an electrical
valve. The housing must not be dipped in water.
 There are electrical wires in the water inlet hose. Do not cut the
water inlet hose, even if it is too long.
 The integrated Waterproof system offers protection from water
damage, provided the following conditions are met:
– The dishwasher is correctly installed and plumbed in.
– The dishwasher is properly maintained and parts are replaced
where it can be seen that this is necessary.
– The tap has been turned off when the appliance is not used for a
longer period of time (e.g. during holidays).
The Waterproof system will work even if the appliance is switched
off. However, the appliance must remain connected to the electricity
supply.
 The water pressure (flow pressure at the connection point) must
be between 30 and 1000 kPa (0.3 and 10 bar).
 A damaged appliance could be dangerous. If the dishwasher gets
damaged, switch it off at the mains and call Miele.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 The manufacturer's warranty will be invalidated if the appliance is
not repaired by a Miele approved service technician.
 Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele spare
parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of the appli‐
ance when Miele replacement parts are used.
 During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply.
 If the connection cable is damaged, it must be replaced with a
special cable of the same type (available from Miele) by a Miele au‐
thorised service technician only.
 In 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 warranty.
Correct installation
 The dishwasher must be installed and connected in compliance
with the installation instructions.
 Be careful when installing the dishwasher. Wear protective
gloves to avoid injury on any sharp metal components.
 The dishwasher must be correctly aligned to ensure problem-free
operation.
 In order to ensure stability, built-under and integrated dishwash‐
ers must only be installed under a continuous worktop which is se‐
cured to adjacent cabinetry.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
 If you want to convert your freestanding dishwasher to a built-un‐
der ("U") model, you will need to order the appropriate conversion
kit. If you remove the existing plinth, you must replace it with a Umodel plinth. This is necessary to avoid the risk of injury caused by
protruding metal parts.
 The door springs on either side need to be evenly adjusted. They
are correctly adjusted if the half-opened door (approx. 45° door
opening angle) remains in this position when it is released. The door
must not fall down under its own weight.
The appliance may only be used with correctly adjusted door
springs.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Do not use solvents in the dishwasher. Danger of explosion!
 Do not inhale or ingest dishwasher detergent. Dishwasher deter‐
gents contain irritants or corrosive ingredients which can cause
burning in the nose, mouth and throat if swallowed, or inhibit breath‐
ing. Seek medical advice immediately if your child has swallowed or
inhaled detergent, e.g. Poisons Information Centre (Australia) or Na‐
tional Poisons Centre (NZ).
 Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily as someone could trip
over it and be injured by it.
 Do not sit or lean on the opened door. This could cause the dish‐
washer to tip and be damaged, and you could get injured.
 Dishes can be very hot at the end of a programme. Allow them to
cool until they are comfortable enough to handle before unloading.
 Only use detergent and rinse aid formulated for domestic dish‐
washers. Do not use washing-up liquid.
 Do not use commercial or industrial detergents as these may
cause damage, and there is a risk of a severe explosive chemical re‐
action (such as an explosive oxyhydrogen gas reaction).
 Do not fill the rinse aid reservoir with powder or liquid detergent.
This will cause serious damage to the reservoir.
 Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir with powder or liquid dish‐
washer detergent will damage the water softener. Make sure you
have picked up the correct packet of dishwasher salt before filling
the salt reservoir!
 Only use special coarse grained dishwasher salt for reactivation.
Do not use other salts such as cooking salt, agricultural grade or
gritting salt. These may contain insoluble additives which can impair
the functioning of the water softener.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
 In an appliance with a cutlery basket (depending on model) cut‐
lery is cleaned and dried more efficiently if placed in the basket with
the handles downwards. However, to avoid the risk of injury, place
knives and forks etc. with the handles upwards.
 Plastic items which cannot withstand being washed in hot water,
such as disposable plastic containers, or plastic cutlery and crock‐
ery should not be cleaned in the dishwasher. The high temperatures
in the dishwasher may cause them to melt or lose shape.
 If you use the "FlexiTimer/Delay start" option (depending on mod‐
el), make sure that the dispenser is dry before adding detergent.
Wipe dry if necessary. Detergent will clog if poured into a damp dis‐
penser and may not be thoroughly dispersed.
 Please observe the information given in "Technical data" regard‐
ing the capacity of the dishwasher.
Accessories
 Use only genuine original Miele spare parts. If spare parts or ac‐
cessories from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be in‐
validated, and Miele cannot accept liability.
Disposal of your old dishwasher
 Make the door lock inoperative so that children cannot acciden‐
tally shut themselves in. Remove or destroy the locking bracket of
the door lock, and make appropriate arrangements for the disposal
of the appliance.
15
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing mate‐
rial
Disposing of your old appli‐
ance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances of‐
ten contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be po‐
tentially hazardous to human health and
to the environment. They are, however,
essential for the correct functioning of
your appliance. Therefore, please do
not dispose of your old appliance with
your household waste.
The packaging consists of the following
materials:
Outer packaging:
– Corrugated cardboard made from up
to 100% recyclable material:
or: Polyethylene (PE) shrink wrap
– Polyproplylene (PP) strapping
Inner packaging:
– Chlorine and fluorine free expanded
polystyrene (EPS)
– Base, lid frame and support battens
made from untreated natural wood
from renewable forests
– Polyethylene (PE) protective wrap
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the manufactur‐
ing process and also reduces the
amount of waste in landfill sites. Rather
than just throwing these materials
away, please ensure they are recycled.
 Ensure that any plastic wrap‐
pings, bags, etc. are disposed of
safely and kept out of the reach of
babies and young children. Danger
of suffocation.
16
Please dispose of it at your local com‐
munity waste collection / recycling cen‐
tre.
Ensure that your old appliance presents
no danger to children while being stor‐
ed for disposal.
To enable sorting by type of plastic for
recycling, all plastic parts of the appli‐
ance are labelled with international
standard symbols.
Caring for the environment
Energy-saving dishwashing
This dishwasher is exceptionally eco‐
nomical in its use of water and electrici‐
ty.
You can make the most of your appli‐
ance by following these tips:
– For most economical dishwashing,
make full use of the baskets without
overloading the dishwasher.
– Choose the programme to suit the
type of crockery being washed and
the degree of soiling.
– Select the ECO programme for ener‐
gy-saving dishwashing. This pro‐
gramme is the most efficient in terms
of its combined energy and water
consumption at cleaning normally
soiled crockery.
– Follow the detergent manufacturer's
recommendations on detergent dos‐
age.
– When using powder or liquid deter‐
gent you can use 1/3 less detergent if
baskets are only half full.
– If your household water system is
suitable, this dishwasher can be con‐
nected to a hot water supply for fur‐
ther economies. If the water is heated
by solar panels, for example, this
would be energy efficient.
However, if your water is heated by
electricity, we would recommend
connection to cold water.
You can find further tips on energysaving dishwashing in "Miele's guide
to dishwashing".
17
Before using for the first time
Opening the door
Closing the door
 Push the baskets right in.
 Then lift the door upwards and push
until it clicks into position.
 Danger of injury!
Do not put your hand inside the door
as it is closing.
 Pull the handle.
If the door is opened during operation,
all functions are automatically interrup‐
ted.
 Water in the dishwasher may be
hot. Danger of scalding!
Only open the door during operation
if absolutely necessary and exercise
extreme caution when doing so.
18
Before using for the first time
Water softener
Enter the water hardness below:
In order to achieve good cleaning re‐
sults, the dishwasher needs to operate
with soft water. Hard water results in a
build-up of calcium deposits on crock‐
ery and in the dishwasher.
Mains water with a hardness level high‐
er than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d - German
scale) needs to be softened. This takes
place automatically in the integrated
water softener. The water softener in
the dishwasher is suitable for a water
hardness level of up to 12.6 mmol/l (70
°d - German scale).
____________mmol/l or °d
The dishwasher is programmed at the
factory for a water hardness level of 2.7
mmol/l (15 °d - German scale).
If this setting corresponds to the hard‐
ness of your water, you do not need to
do anything more.
However, if you have a different water
hardness, you must adjust the water
softener to match your water hardness.
– The water softener requires dish‐
washer salt.
Depending on the water hardness
level (< 3.8 mmol/l, or 21 °d - Ger‐
man scale), dishwasher salt is not re‐
quired if combination tablets are be‐
ing used (see "Operation - Deter‐
gent").
– The dishwasher must be program‐
med for the water hardness in your
area.
– Your local water authority will be able
to advise you of the water hardness
level in your area.
– Where the water hardness fluctuates,
e.g. between 1.8 and 2.7 mmol/l (10 15 °d - German scale), always pro‐
gramme the dishwasher to the higher
value (2.7 mmol/l or 15 °d in this ex‐
ample).
In the event of a fault, it will help the
service technician if you know the hard‐
ness of your local water supply.
19
Before using for the first time
Displaying and setting the water
hardness
 Open the door.
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button, if it is switched on.
 Press the programme selector button
 in, and whilst holding it in switch
the dishwasher on using the  but‐
ton.
Keep the programme selector button
 pressed in for at least four sec‐
onds until the lower right hand pro‐
gramme indicator comes on.
If this does not happen, start the proce‐
dure from the beginning again.
 Press the button  twice.
The indicator  will flash rapidly twice
at intervals.
The value set for the water hardness is
shown as a figure after  in the display
(see chart).
   will start flashing in the display.
This is the factory default setting of
15°d.
 Use the programme selector button
 to select the value which equates
to your water hardness level.
Each press on the button moves you
up a level. When the highest water
hardness level is reached, the setting
starts from the beginning again.
The setting is now stored in memory.
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button.

Before using for the first time
Before using the appliance for
the first time, you require:
– approx. 2 litres of water,
– approx. 2 kg dishwasher salt,
– domestic dishwasher detergent,
– rinse aid formulated for domestic
dishwashers.
Every dishwasher is tested at the fac‐
tory. There will be residual water in the
appliance from this test. It is not an in‐
dication that it has been used previ‐
ously.
Dishwasher salt
In order to achieve good cleaning re‐
sults, the dishwasher needs to operate
with soft water. Hard water results in a
build-up of calcium deposits on crock‐
ery and in the dishwasher.
Mains water with a hardness level high‐
er than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d - German
scale) needs to be softened. This takes
place automatically in the integrated
water softener. The water softener in
the dishwasher is suitable for a water
hardness level of up to 12.6 mmol/l (70
°d - German scale).
The water softener requires dishwasher
salt.
Depending on the water hardness level
(< 3.8 mmol/l, or 21 °d - German scale),
dishwasher salt is not required if combi‐
nation tablets are being used (see "Op‐
eration - Detergent").
22
If the water hardness in your area is
constantly lower than 0.9 mmol/l (5
°d), you do not need to add dish‐
washer salt. The prompt to add dish‐
washer salt will be switched off auto‐
matically. The water softener must,
however, still be programmed to cor‐
respond to the water hardness level in
your area.
 Dishwasher detergent will dam‐
age the water softener.
Do not fill the salt reservoir with
powder or liquid detergent.
 Only use special coarse grained
dishwasher salt for reactivation,
as other salts (e.g. cooking salt, agri‐
cultural grade or gritting salt) may
contain insoluble additives which
can impair the functioning of the wa‐
ter softener.
Before using for the first time
Filling the salt reservoir
Before filling the salt reservoir with
dishwasher salt for the first time, you
must fill it with approx. 2 litres of wa‐
ter to enable the salt to dissolve.
Once the dishwasher has been used,
there is always sufficient water in the
reservoir.
 Remove the lower basket and un‐
screw the salt reservoir cap.
Water or saline solution will run out
of the reservoir when the cap is re‐
moved.
It should therefore only be removed
in order to refill the salt reservoir.
 Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres
of water (first use only).
 Place the funnel provided over the
salt reservoir and carefully fill with
dishwasher salt until the reservoir is
full. The salt reservoir holds approx. 2
kg of salt depending on the brand
used.
 Clean any excess dishwasher salt
from around the reservoir opening
and then screw the cap on again
firmly.
 Immediately after filling the salt reser‐
voir, run the Quick wash programme
with the Short programme option se‐
lected and without any crockery in
the dishwasher, to remove any traces
of salt from the cabinet.
23
Before using for the first time
Salt indicator
 Fill the salt reservoir with dishwasher
salt when the Salt indicator light
comes on (If it comes on during a
programme, wait until the end of the
programme).
 Risk of corrosion!
Immediately after filling the salt res‐
ervoir, run the Quick wash pro‐
gramme with the Short programme
option selected and without any
crockery in the dishwasher to re‐
move any traces of salt from the
cabinet.
After the salt reservoir has been filled,
the refill indicator may still be lit up if
the salt concentration has not yet
reached the correct level. It will go out
when the correct concentration is
reached.
The refill indicator will be switched off if
you have programmed the dishwasher
for a water hardness below 0.9 mmol/l
(5 °d - German scale).
24
If you only ever use multi-function
combination products in your dish‐
washer, you can switch off both refill
reminders for salt and rinse aid if you
wish (see "Programme options Switching off the refill indicators").
If you switch to using detergent that
does not contain salt or rinse aid, it
is important to remember to add
dishwasher salt and rinse aid and to
switch the refill indicators back on.
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Rinse aid is necessary to ensure water
does not cling and leave marks on
crockery during the drying phase and
helps crockery dry faster after it has
been washed.
Rinse aid is poured into the storage res‐
ervoir and the amount set is dispensed
automatically.
If you only ever use combination
products containing rinse aid in your
dishwasher, you do not need to add
rinse aid.
Adding rinse aid
 Inadvertently filling the rinse aid
reservoir with powder or liquid deter‐
gent will damage the reservoir. Only
pour rinse aid formulated for domes‐
tic dishwashers into the reservoir.
Alternatively, it is possible to use
– household vinegar with a max. 5%
acid content
or
– liquid citric acid up to 10% acid con‐
tent
 Press the button on the lid of the
rinse aid reservoir in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
The resulting rinsing and drying quality
will not, however, be as good as when
rinse aid is used.
 Do not use vinegar with a higher
acid content (e.g. vinegar essence
25% acid).
This would damage the dishwasher.
25
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid indicator
When the Rinse aid indicator light
comes on, the reservoir contains suffi‐
cient rinse aid for 2 - 3 programmes on‐
ly.
 Add rinse aid in plenty of time.
If you only ever use multi-function
combination products in your dish‐
washer, you can switch off both refill
reminders for salt and rinse aid if you
wish (see "Programme options Switching off the refill indicators").
 Add rinse aid only until it is visible in
the opening.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
110 ml.
 Close the flap firmly so that it clicks
into place. Otherwise water can enter
the rinse aid reservoir during a pro‐
gramme.
 Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring dur‐
ing the next programme.
26
If you switch to using detergent that
does not contain salt or rinse aid, it
is important to remember to add
dishwasher salt and rinse aid and to
switch the refill indicators back on.
Before using for the first time
Setting the rinse aid dosage
You can adjust the rinse aid dosage for
best results.
The rinse aid dosage can be set from
approx. 0-6 ml. It is set to a recommen‐
ded setting of approx. 3 ml at the facto‐
ry.
The dosage can turn out to be higher
than the set value due to the automatic
adjustment of the Sensor wash pro‐
gramme.
If spots appear on crockery and glass‐
ware:
 Increase the rinse aid dosage.
If clouding or smearing appears on
crockery and glassware:
 Decrease the rinse aid dosage.
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button, if it is switched on.
 Press the programme selector button
 in and, whilst holding it in, switch
the dishwasher on using the  but‐
ton.
Keep the programme selector button
 pressed in for at least four sec‐
onds until the lower right-hand pro‐
gramme indicator light comes on.
If this does not happen, start the proce‐
dure from the beginning again.
 Press the button  three times
briefly.
The indicator  will flash rapidly three
times at intervals.
The dosage set will appear in the dis‐
play after .
  will flash in the display.
This means that the rinse aid dosage
has been set to 3 ml at the factory.
 Use the programme selector button
 to select the rinse aid dosage you
want.
The dosage amount alters each time
you press the button.
The setting is now stored in memory.
 Switch the dishwasher off with the 
button.

Notes
Remove coarse food residues from
crockery.
There is no need to rinse items under
running water.
 Do not wash items soiled with
ash, sand, wax, lubricating grease or
paint in the dishwasher. Ash does
not dissolve and is distributed in the
wash cabinet. Wax, sand, lubricating
grease and paint cause damage to
the dishwasher.
Crockery can be loaded anywhere in
the baskets, but the following notes
should be observed:
– Do not place crockery and cutlery in‐
side other pieces where they may be
concealed.
– Load the crockery so that water can
access all surfaces. This ensures that
they get properly cleaned.
– Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
– Hollow items such as cups, glasses,
pans, etc. must be inverted in the
basket.
– Tall, narrow, hollow items, e.g. cham‐
pagne glasses, should be placed in
the centre of the basket to ensure
better water coverage.
– Wide based items should be placed
at an angle so that water can run off
them freely.
28
– The spray arms must not be blocked
by items which are too tall or hang
through the baskets. If in doubt, test
for free movement by manually rotat‐
ing the spray arms.
– Make sure that small items cannot
fall through the holders in the bas‐
kets.
Small items, e.g. lids, should there‐
fore be placed in the cutlery tray or
cutlery basket (depending on model).
Some foodstuffs may contain natural
dyes, e.g. carrots, tomatoes or toma‐
to sauce. Plastic items in the dish‐
washer may discolour if large quanti‐
ties of these foodstuffs find their way
into the dishwasher on the crockery.
The stability of plastic items is not
affected by this discolouration.
Cleaning silver cutlery in the dish‐
washer may also cause plastic items
to discolour.
Loading the dishwasher
Items not suitable for dishwashers:
– Wooden cutlery and crockery or
items with wooden parts: these may
discolour and fade. The glue used in
these items is not dishwasher-proof
and wooden handles may come
loose after being washed in a dish‐
washer.
– Craft items, antiques, valuable vases
and decorative glassware are also
not suitable for dishwashers.
– Plastic items which are not heat-re‐
sistant: the high temperatures in the
dishwasher may cause them to melt
or lose shape.
– Copper, brass, tin and aluminium
items may discolour or become matt.
– Colours painted over a glaze may
fade after a number of washes.
– Delicate glassware and glassware
containing lead crystal: clouding may
occur over time.
Please note
Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may still be damp or spot‐
ted at the end of a programme, where
water has not run off smoothly. It may
need to be rubbed dry with a soft cloth.
Silver which has been in contact with
foods containing sulphur can discolour.
These include egg yolk, onions, mayon‐
naise, mustard, pulses, fish, fish brine
and marinades.
 Aluminium components (e.g.
rangehood grease filters) must not
be cleaned with caustic alkaline
commercial or industrial cleaning
agents.
These may damage the material, or
in extreme cases, there is a risk of a
severe explosive chemical reaction
(such as an explosive oxyhydrogen
gas reaction).
Useful tip: When purchasing new
crockery and cutlery, make sure they
are dishwasher-proof.
Glass care
– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. If delicate glass‐
ware is washed in the dishwasher,
ensure that only very low tempera‐
tures are used (see programme
chart), or a special glass-care pro‐
gramme is used (depending on mod‐
el). This will reduce the risk of cloud‐
ing.
– Purchase glassware which is dish‐
washer-safe (e.g. Riedel glassware).
– Use detergents with glass protective
additives (e.g. Miele CareCollection
tabs).
– Visit "http://www.mieleglass‐
care.com/international/en/glasscare/
english" for more information on
glass care.

Loading the dishwasher
Upper basket
See "Loading the dishwasher / Load‐
ing examples" for examples of how to
load crockery and cutlery.
 For safety reasons, do not oper‐
ate the dishwasher without the upper
and lower baskets in place (except
when running the Tall items pro‐
gramme, if available).
 Use the upper basket for small, light‐
weight and delicate items such as
cups, saucers, glasses, dessert
bowls, etc.
Shallow pans or casserole dishes can
also be placed in the upper basket.
 Long items such as soup ladles, mix‐
ing spoons and long knives should
be placed lying down across the front
of the upper basket.
30
Cup rack
 To make room for tall items, raise the
rack upwards.
Glasses can be arranged along the po‐
sitioning rail of the cup rack to give
them some support during the pro‐
gramme.
 Lower the cup rack and lean the
glasses against it.
Loading the dishwasher
Adjusting the upper basket
In order to gain more space for taller
pieces of crockery in the bottom or up‐
per basket, the upper basket can be
adjusted on three levels with 2 cm be‐
tween each level.
The upper basket can also be set at an
angle with one side high and the other
side low. This can be useful to help pre‐
vent water being left in deep dishes etc.
Ensure, however, that the basket can
be inserted smoothly into the cabinet. It
is better to adjust the basket before
loading it.
 Pull out the upper basket.
Depending on the setting of the upper

load crockery and cutlery.
 Arrange the cutlery in the tray as
shown.
To make unloading much easier, cutlery
should be grouped in zones, one for
knives, one for forks, one for spoons,
etc.
Spoon heads should be placed in con‐
tact with at least one of the serrated re‐
tainers on the base of the cutlery tray to
ensure that water runs off them freely.
If spoon handles do not fit between the
holders, then lay them the other way
round.
The upper spray arm must not be
blocked by items which are too big
(e.g. cake slices).
The side sections of the tray can be
moved into the middle to accommodate
tall items of crockery in the upper bas‐
ket.
You can use the yellow slide to adjust
the height of the middle section of the
cutlery tray to make more room for
large items of cutlery, such as serving
spoons and ladles.

The cutlery basket can be placed any‐
where on the front rows of spikes in the
lower basket.
 Fit it onto the cutlery basket if re‐
quired.
 To avoid the risk of injury, knives and
forks should be placed with the han‐
dles upwards in the basket. However,
cutlery placed handle down in the
basket will come out cleaner and dri‐
er.
 Place small items of cutlery in the in‐
dividual slots on three sides of the
cutlery basket.
Cutlery insert for the cutlery basket
Use the insert supplied for heavily
soiled items of cutlery. The insert sepa‐

Operation
Detergent
 Only use detergents formulated
for domestic dishwashers. Do not
use washing-up liquid.
Active ingredients
Modern detergents contain various ac‐
tive ingredients, the most important of
which are:
– Complexing agents to prevent calcifi‐
cation.
– Alkalis to aid the removal of dried on
soiling.
– Enzymes to break down starch and
loosen protein.
– Oxygen based bleaching agents to
remove coloured stains (e.g. tea, cof‐
fee, tomato sauce).
Most dishwasher detergents are mildly
alkaline and contain enzymes and oxy‐
gen based bleaching agents.
Types of detergent:
– Powder and liquid gel detergents.
These detergents allow you to adjust
the amount dispensed according to
the amount of load and level of soil‐
ing.
– Tab detergents. These are suitable
for most levels of soiling.
46
You can also buy combination products
(see "Programme options - Detergent‐
Agent", if applicable).
In addition to detergent, these products
contain rinse aid and salt substitutes.
They are available as "3 in 1" or when
they also contain other components
such as glass and stainless steel pro‐
tective additives and enhanced clean‐
ing power, as "5 in 1", "7 in 1", "All in 1"
etc.
Refer to the manufacturer's packaging
as to whether combination products are
suitable for the water hardness level in
your area.
Please note that the cleaning and dry‐
ing results of combination detergents
can vary greatly.
For optimum cleaning and drying re‐
sults, use Miele dishwasher detergent
and add Miele salt and Miele rinse aid
separately. See "Optional accesso‐
ries".
Operation
Detergent dosage
 Follow the dosage recommended by
the manufacturer on the packaging.
 Unless directed otherwise, use one
detergent tab or add 20 to 30 ml de‐
tergent to compartment II, depending
on the level of soiling. With very
heavy soiling you can also add a
small amount of detergent to com‐
partment l.
 Tabs may not dissolve completely
when the Quick wash programme (if
available) is used.
Failure to dispense the recommen‐
ded amount of detergent may impair
cleaning results.
 Dishwasher detergents contain
irritant or corrosive ingredients which
can cause burning in the nose,
mouth and throat if swallowed, or in‐
hibit breathing.
Avoid inhalation of powder deter‐
gents and do not ingest dishwasher
detergent. Seek medical advice im‐
mediately if detergent has been
swallowed or inhaled.
Keep detergent and other household
agents out of the reach of children at
all times. Keep children away from
the dishwasher when the door is
open. There could still be detergent
residues in the cabinet. To avoid the
danger of children coming into con‐
tact with the dishwasher detergent,
only add detergent just before start‐
ing the programme and close the
door, activating the safety lock (if
your dishwasher is fitted with one).
47
Operation
Adding detergent
 Press the opening catch on the de‐
tergent dispenser. The flap will spring

 Add the required amount of detergent
and close the flap.
 Make sure that the detergent packag‐
ing is properly closed after use to
avoid it getting damp and becoming
lumpy.
For information
Compartment I holds max. 10 ml,
Compartment II holds max. 50 ml.
There are marks in Compartment II to
assist with dispensing: 20, 30. The
marks indicate a level of approx. 20 or
30 ml when the door is open in a hori‐
zontal position.

Operation
Starting the programme
Display
 Start the programme by closing the
door.
The duration of the programme selec‐
ted appears in hours and minutes in the
display before the programme begins.
During the programme the time left until
the end of the programme is displayed.
The programme will begin.
The In-operation indicator comes on to
show that a programme has been star‐
ted.
A programme can only be cancelled
in the first few minutes. Otherwise
the programme must continue to the
end so that important programme
stages (e.g. reactivating the water
softener) are not omitted.
The programme duration displayed may
vary with the same programme. It is in‐
fluenced by, among other things, the
water temperature at each intake, the
reactivation process, the type of deter‐
gent, the amount of crockery and how
dirty it is.
When a programme is selected for the
first time, the display shows an average
time for a cold water intake.
The times shown in the Programme
chart refer to standard test loads and
temperatures.
Each time a programme is run, the
electronic unit takes the new conditions
into account, and calculates the time
required.
50
Operation
Energy management
At the end of the programme
To save energy, the dishwasher will
switch off automatically 10 minutes af‐
ter the last time a button has been
pressed or 10 minutes after the end of
the programme (see "Programme op‐
tions - Optimise standby").
At the end of a programme, the In-op‐
eration indicator light will be visible
flashing slowly with the door shut. The
buzzer might also be sounding.
 Press the  button to switch the
dishwasher back on.
The dishwasher will not switch off
whilst a programme is running, during

appears in the display.
The drying fan may continue to run for
a few minutes at the end of the pro‐
gramme.
 The dishwasher can now be opened
and unloaded (see "Unloading the
dishwasher").
 To prevent the risk of steam
damage to the worktop edging
above the dishwasher, it is advisable
to leave the door closed until you are
ready to unload the crockery. Alter‐
natively you can open the door fully
until the crockery is cool enough to
unload. Do not leave the door only
partially open.
51
Operation
Switching off
Unloading the dishwasher
At the end of a programme:
 The dishwasher can be switched off
at any time using the  button.
Dishes tend to break and chip more
easily when they are hot. Allow the
dishes to cool until they are comforta‐
ble enough to handle before unloading
them.
Switching the dishwasher off during a
programme stops the programme.
If you open the door fully after switch‐
ing off, the dishes will cool much faster.
Switching the dishwasher off during the
run-up to a Delay start time (FlexiTimer)
will also stop the process.
First unload the lower basket, then the
upper basket and finally the cutlery tray
(depending on model).
This will prevent water drops from the
upper basket and cutlery tray from fall‐
ing onto the dishes in the lower basket.
 Open the door.
If the dishwasher is not going to be
used for a longer period of time, e.g.
whilst on holiday, the tap should be
turned off.
52
Operation
Interrupting a programme
A programme is interrupted as soon as
the door is opened.
If the door is closed again, the pro‐
gramme will continue from the point it
was at before the door was opened.
 Water in the dishwasher may be
hot. Danger of scalding!
Only open the door if absolutely nec‐
essary and exercise extreme caution
when doing so. Before closing the
door again, leave it ajar for approx.
20 seconds. This will enable the tem‐
perature in the wash cabinet to set‐
tle. Then raise the door up and push
until the catch engages.

Programme options
Short 
DetergentAgent
The Short  option reduces the dura‐
tion of programmes in which this option
is available.
For optimum cleaning results, the dish‐
washer automatically adjusts the pro‐
gramme sequence to the type of deter‐
gent being used. Depending on the
programme, this can mean that the run‐
ning time and energy consumption vary
slightly.
In order to achieve optimum cleaning
results, consumption rates are in‐
creased with this option.
When used in combination with the
Quick wash programme, the Short 
option results in a wash programme
without drying or automatic opening of
the door (if available).
 Open the door.
 Switch the dishwasher on with the 

Cleaning and care
Check your dishwasher regularly (ap‐
prox. every 4-6 months). This way
faults and problems can be avoided.
 The external surfaces of this ap‐
pliance are all susceptible to
scratching.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour the ex‐
ternal surfaces.
Cleaning the wash cabinet
The wash cabinet is largely self-clean‐
ing, provided that the correct amount of
detergent is always used.
If, however, there are limescale or
grease deposits in the cabinet, these
can be removed with the Original Miele
dishwasher conditioning agent (availa‐
ble from Miele or at www.mieleshop.com, depending on country). Fol‐
low the dosage recommended by the
manufacturer on the packaging.
Using mainly low temperature pro‐
grammes (below 50°C), could cause
bacteria and unpleasant odours to build
up in the wash cabinet. To avoid this,
the dishwasher will increase the tem‐
perature in the final rinse of the selected
programme automatically after several
programmes using low temperatures
have been run.
 Clean the filters in the wash cabinet
regularly.
66
Cleaning the door and the door
seal
Mould could build up on the door seal
and the sides of the dishwasher door
as these surfaces are outside the wash
cabinet and are not accessed and
cleaned by the spray arm jets.
 Wipe the door seals regularly with a
damp cloth to remove food deposits.
 Wipe off any food or drink residues
which may have dripped onto the
sides of the dishwasher door before
closing it.
Cleaning the control panel
 The control panel should only be wi‐
ped with a damp cloth.
Cleaning the reflector panel
The reflector panel for the In-operation
indicator light is situated in the cover‐
plate underneath the worktop.
 The reflector panel should only be wi‐
ped with a damp cloth or a suitable
cleaning agent designed for use on
plastic.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the door front
 Soiling that is left too long might
become impossible to remove and
could cause external surfaces to al‐
ter or discolour.
Remove any soiling immediately.
 Clean the front with a solution of
warm water and a little washing-up
liquid applied with a soft sponge.
Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
For cleaning, you can also use a
clean, damp microfibre cloth, such as
the Original Miele all purpose microfi‐
bre cloth, without any cleaning agent.
To avoid damaging external surfaces,
do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. pow‐
der cleaners and cream cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven cleaner,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges,
e.g. pot scourers, brushes or spong‐
es which have been previously used
with abrasive cleaning agents,
– dirt erasers,
– sharp metal scrapers,
– steel wool or metal scourers,
– steam cleaning appliances.
67
Cleaning and care
Checking the filters in the
wash cabinet
Cleaning the filters
 Switch the dishwasher off.
The filter combination in the base of the
wash cabinet retains coarse soil from
the suds solution, preventing it access‐
ing the circulation system and re-enter‐
ing the cabinet through the spray arms.
 This dishwasher must not be
used without all the filters in place.
Collection of coarse soil may cause the
filters to clog. The level of soiling and
time it takes before the filters need
cleaning will vary depending on use.
 Check the condition of the filters reg‐
ularly and clean them if necessary.
 Turn the handle anti-clockwise to re‐
lease the filter combination .
 Lift the filter combination out of the
dishwasher . Remove any coarse
particles and rinse the filter well un‐
der running water.
Use a nylon brush if necessary.
 During cleaning ensure that
course soil doesn't get into the cir‐
culation system and cause a block‐
age.
68
Cleaning and care
To clean the inside of the filter, the flap
must be opened:
 Press the catches  together in the
direction of the arrows as shown, and
open the filter .
 Rinse all the filters under running wa‐
ter.
 Then close the flap so that the catch
engages.
 Replace the filter combination so that
it lies flat in the base of the wash
cabinet.
 Then turn the handle clockwise until
both arrows point towards each oth‐
er. This will lock the filter combination
in place.
 Take care when you are fitting
the filter combination that it is se‐
cured in position correctly.
Otherwise coarse soil could get into
the circulation system and cause a
blockage.
69
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the spray arms
Particles of food can get stuck in the
spray arm jets and bearings. The spray
arms should therefore be inspected and
cleaned regularly (approx. every 4 - 6
months).
 Switch the dishwasher off.
Remove the spray arms as follows:
 Take out the cutlery tray (if your dish‐
washer is fitted with one).
 Push the top spray arm upwards to
engage the inner ratchet. Then un‐
screw the spray arm.
 Push the middle spray arm upwards
 to engage the ratchet. Then un‐
screw the spray arm .
 Remove the lower basket.
 Pull the lower spray arm firmly up‐
wards to remove it.
 Use a pointed object to push food
particles into the spray arm jets.
 Rinse thoroughly under running wa‐
ter.
 Refit the spray arms and check that
they rotate freely.

Maintenance
Cleaning the water inlet filter
A filter is incorporated in the screw con‐
nection of the valve on the water inlet
hose. The filter must be cleaned when
dirty, otherwise insufficient water flows
into the wash cabinet.
 The plastic housing of the water
connection contains an electrical
component.
The housing must not be dipped in
water.
Recommendation
If the mains water contains a large
amount of insoluble substances, we
recommend fitting a large-area filter in
the connection between the tap and the
water inlet hose threaded union. This
filter is available from Miele.
Cleaning the filter:
 Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply.
Switch off at the mains socket and
withdraw the plug.
 Turn off the tap.
 Unscrew the inlet hose.
80
 Carefully remove the washer.
 Withdraw the filter using pointed pli‐
ers and rinse clean under running
water.
 Replace the filter and washer, making
sure they are sitting correctly.
 Reconnect the inlet hose to the tap,
making sure it goes on correctly and
is not cross-threaded.
 Turn on the tap.
If water leaks out, the inlet hose may
not be connected securely or it may
have been screwed on at an angle.
 Unscrew and reconnect the inlet
hose correctly.
Maintenance
Cleaning the drain pump and
non-return valve
If the water has not been pumped away
at the end of a programme, the drain
pump or the non-return valve might be
blocked. They are, however, easy to
clean.
 Disconnect the dishwasher from the
mains supply. Switch off at the mains
socket and withdraw the plug.
 Take the filter combination out of the
wash cabinet (see "Cleaning and care
- Cleaning the filters").
 Scoop the water out of the cabinet
using a suitable container or utensil.
The drain pump is situated under the
non-return valve (see arrow).
 Remove all foreign objects from the
drain pump (watch out for glass or
bone splinters which are particularly
difficult to detect and could cause in‐
jury). Turn the drain pump impeller by
hand to check that there are no more
obstructions. You will feel a little re‐
sistance when you turn the impeller.
 Carefully refit the non-return valve
and secure it with the catch.
 Ensure that the catch engages
correctly.
 Press the catch for the non-return
valve inwards .
 Lift out the non-return valve , and
rinse well under running water.
 Be careful not to damage any
delicate components when cleaning
the drain pump and the non-return
valve.
 Remove all foreign objects from the
non-return valve.

Electrical connection
This dishwasher is supplied with a
mains cable and moulded plug ready
for connection to an AC single phase
supply, (230 - 240 V 50 Hz for NZ and
Australia) via a fused plug and suitable
switched socket.
 The electrical socket must be
easily accessible after the dishwash‐
er has been installed. Do not con‐
nect the dishwasher to the mains
electricity supply by an extension
lead. Extension leads do not guaran‐
tee the required safety of the appli‐
ance (e.g. danger of overheating).
 Before connecting the appliance,
check that the connection data on
the data plate (voltage, frequency,
rated load and fuse rating) matches
the mains electricity supply. If in any
doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
The data plate is located on the righthand side of the door.
 All electrical work must be car‐
ried out by a suitably qualified and
competent person in strict accord‐
ance with current local and national
safety regulations.
If the connection cable is damaged, it
must be replaced with a Miele cable of
the same type by a Miele approved
service technician only.
Do not connect the appliance to an in‐
verter such as those used with an au‐
tonomous energy source e.g. solar
power. When switched on, peak loads
in the system can cause the safety
switch-off mechanism to be triggered.
This can damage the electronic unit.
The machine must not be used with socalled energy-saving devices either.
These reduce the amount of energy
supplied to the machine, causing it to
overheat.
85
Water connection
The Miele Waterproof system
As long as your dishwasher has been
installed correctly, the Miele waterproof
anti-leak system will protect you from
water damage.
Connection to the water sup‐
ply
 Water in the dishwasher must
not be used as drinking water.
 IMPORTANT Australia and New
Zealand
This appliance must be installed ac‐
cording to AS/NZS 3500.1. Back
flow prevention is already integrated
in the appliance.
– The dishwasher may be connected to
a cold or hot water supply, max.
60 °C.
We would only recommend connec‐
tion to a hot water supply if it is eco‐
nomical, e.g. a solar-powered supply.
When connected to a hot water sup‐
ply, all programme stages which
would otherwise be carried out with
cold water will be carried out with hot
water.
– The inlet hose is approx. 1.5 m long.
– A tap with a 3/4 " male thread must
be provided on site.
– Connection to the mains water sup‐
ply should only be carried out by a
qualified and competent person in
strict accordance with national and
local safety regulations.
The tap should be easily accessible
once the appliance has been built in.
86
– The water pressure (flow pressure at
the take-off point) must be between
30 and 1000 kPa (0.3 and 10 bar). If
the water pressure is too high, a
pressure reducer valve must be fit‐
ted.
After connecting the dishwasher to
the water supply, check that all
plumbing connections are watertight.
 To avoid any damage to the ap‐
pliance, the dishwasher must only be
connected to a fully vented plumbing
system.
 The inlet hose must not be
shortened or damaged in any way as
it contains electrical components
(see illustration).
Water connection
Drainage
Venting the drainage system
– The appliance drainage system is fit‐
ted with a non-return valve which
prevents dirty water from flowing
back into the dishwasher via the
drain hose.
If the on-site drain connection is situ‐
ated lower than the guide path for the
bottom basket rollers in the open door,
the drainage system must be vented.
Otherwise a siphoning effect during a
programme can cause the appliance to
empty itself of water.
– The dishwasher is supplied with ap‐
prox. 1.5 m of flexible drain hose with
an internal diameter of 22 mm.
– The drain hose can be extended us‐
ing a connection piece to attach a
further length of hose. The drainage
length must not be longer than 4 m,
and the delivery head must not ex‐
ceed 1 m.
 To vent it: Open the dishwasher door
fully.
– If the hose is to be directly fitted to
the drainage outlet on site, use the
hose clip supplied (see installation di‐
agram).
– The hose can be directed to the left
or the right of the appliance.
– The on-site connector for the drain
hose can be adapted to different
widths of hose. If the connector pro‐
trudes too far into the drain hose, it
will need to be shortened. Otherwise
the drain hose may become blocked.
 Pull the lower spray arm firmly up‐
wards to remove it.
 Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash cabinet.
– The drain hose must not be short‐
ened.
 Make sure that there are no
kinks in the hose, and that it is not
squashed or stretched.
After commissioning the appliance,
ensure that the water outlet does not
leak.
