Proper use
This dishwasher complies with current safety requirements. Inappropriate use
can, however, lead to personal injury and damage to property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the dishwasher, please read these
instructions carefully before using it for the first time. They contain important
information on its safety, installation, use and maintenance. Keep these
instructions in a safe place and pass them on to any future owner.
 This dishwasher with its short program running times and
powerful cleaning performance is intended for commercial use in
office kitchens, clubhouses, small businesses, active kitchens and
other similar commercial environments.
It is also suitable for use in domestic households and in similar
residential environments, for example, by customers in hotels,
motels, bed and breakfast and other related establishments.
 This dishwasher is not intended for continuous use.
 This commercial dishwasher is not suitable for the cleaning of
medical products or devices.
 This appliance is designed exclusively for use as a "dishwasher"
for cleaning cookware, glassware and cutlery only, as described in
these instructions. Alterations or conversions to the dishwasher, or
using it for purposes other than those for which it is designed, are
not permitted and could be dangerous.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by improper or
incorrect use or operation.
 This commercial dishwasher is intended only for stationary indoor
use.
 The special inserts are to be used for their specific purpose only.
 Persons who lack physical, sensory or mental abilities, or
experience with the appliance should not use it without supervision
or instruction by a responsible person.
6
Proper use
 This dishwasher is supplied with a special bulb to cope with
particular conditions (e.g. temperature, moisture, chemical
resistance, abrasion resistance and vibration). This special bulb must
only be used for the purpose for which it is intended, i.e. to illuminate
the wash chamber. It is not suitable for room lighting. Replacement
of bulbs may only be carried out by a Miele-authorized technician.
7
Important safety instructions
Proper installation
 Do not install the commercial dishwasher in areas at risk of
explosion or freezing.
 To ensure the stability of undercounter commercial dishwashers,
they must only be installed beneath a continuous countertop that is
bolted to the adjacent cabinetry.
 In order to reduce the risk of damage from condensation, the
furniture in the area around the commercial dishwasher should be
designed for commercial use.
Technical safety
 The commercial dishwasher must only be installed,
commissioned, repaired and then maintained by the Miele Service
Department or an authorized Miele Service dealer. Installation, repair
and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous and
Miele will not be held liable.
 This commercial dishwasher must only be operated by
appropriately trained personnel. They must be instructed and trained
regularly.
 Before using the commercial dishwasher, check it for any
externally visible damage. Under no circumstances should you use it
if it has been damaged. It could be dangerous.
 In the event of a damaged or leaking commercial dishwasher, turn
it off immediately and contact Miele or an authorized Miele Service
dealer.
 Faulty components may only be replaced by genuine Miele
original parts. Only when these parts are fitted can Miele guarantee
the safety standards of the appliance.
8
Important safety instructions
 The electrical safety of this commercial dishwasher can only be
guaranteed when it is connected to a correctly installed grounding
conductor system. If in any doubt, please have the electrical
installation tested by a qualified electrician. Miele cannot be held
liable for the consequences for the lack or interruption of a
grounding conductor (e.g. electric shock).
 Be sure to follow the installation instructions in this manual and in
the installation diagram.
 Ensure that the connection data on the data plate (voltage,
frequency, and fuse rating) match those of your electrical supply.
 There must be no electrical sockets behind the commercial
dishwasher since the depth of the installation niche may be too small
and there is a danger of overheating if the dishwasher is pushed up
against a plug (see the "Electrical connection" chapter for more
information).
 Do not connect the dishwasher to the electrical supply by a
multiple outlet box or an extension cable since they do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
 Do not open the commercial dishwasher casing under any
circumstances. Tampering with electrical connections or
components and mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user
and can cause operational faults.
 The commercial dishwasher must not be used if the connecting
cable is damaged. If the cable is damaged, it must be replaced with
a special connecting cable available from Miele. For safety reasons,
this may only be performed by the Miele Service Department or an
authorized Miele Service dealer.
 Before maintenance, disconnect the commercial dishwasher from
the electrical supply.
 The plastic housing of the water connection contains electrical
components. It must not be dipped in water.
9
Important safety instructions
 There are live wires in the water intake hose. Do not shorten the
water intake hose, even if it is too long.
 The built-in waterproof system offers reliable protection against
water damage if the following conditions are met:
– proper installation
– proper maintenance of the dishwasher or exchange of parts in
case of visible damage
– closing of the water valve during longer absences (for example
vacation)
The waterproof system will work even if the dishwasher is turned off.
However, the commercial dishwasher must remain connected to the
electrical supply.
10
Important safety instructions
Correct use
 This commercial dishwasher is designed for operation with water
and detergents suitable for use in commercial dishwashers only.
Organic solvents and flammable liquid agents must not be used.
This could cause an explosion, property damage due to the
destruction of rubber or plastic, and the resulting leakage of liquids.
 Use detergents formulated for use in commercial dishwashers.
Using unsuitable detergents could damage the dishes and the
commercial dishwasher itself.
 Do not sit or lean on the opened door. This could cause the
commercial dishwasher to tip or become damaged.
 After any plumbing work on the water supply, to the dishwasher
will need to be vented. If this is not done, components can be
damaged.
 Please be aware that the dishwasher may be operating at high
temperatures. If the door is opened, there is a danger of burning or
scalding. Dishes, cutlery, baskets, and inserts must be allowed to
cool down before they are unloaded. Any water remaining in
containers could still be very hot. Empty them into the wash cabinet
before taking them out.
 The water in the wash cabinet is NOT safe to drink!
 The pretreatment of items (for example with dishwashing liquid
and other detergents), but also some types of soiling and some
detergents, can cause a build-up of foam in the wash cabinet. Foam
can have an adverse effect on the cleaning result.
 Foam escaping from the wash chamber can cause damage to the
dishwasher. If foam escapes, the program must be cancelled
immediately and the machine must be disconnected from the
electrical supply.
11
Important safety instructions
 When using detergents and specialized products, it is essential
that the manufacturer's instructions are followed. Detergents must
only be used for the purpose they are designed for and in the
situation specified, to avoid material damage and serious chemical
reactions (e.g. oxyhydrogen explosion).
 Do not inhale or ingest powder detergent. Dishwasher detergents
contain irritant or corrosive ingredients which can cause burning in
the nose, mouth and throat if swallowed, or inhibit breathing. Seek
medical attention immediately if detergent has been swallowed or
inhaled.
 Miele cannot be held liable for any effect chemical detergents may
have on the material of the items being cleaned. Observe the
detergent manufacturer's instructions with regard to storage
conditions, use, and dosage.
 To avoid material damage and corrosion, do not allow any acids
or solutions containing chloride to get into the wash cabinet.
Similarly avoid any materials with a corrosive effect.
 Do not wash items soiled with ash, sand, wax, lubricants, or paint
in the dishwasher. These substances could damage the dishwasher.
 Do not hose down the dishwasher or its direct vicinity to clean it,
e.g. with a water hose or high-pressure cleaner.
 Ensure that the stainless steel outer casing of the appliance does
not come into contact with solutions or steam containing acid to
avoid any corrosion damage.
 Be careful when sorting items with sharp pointed ends and
positioning them in the dishwasher so that you do not hurt yourself
or create a danger for others. Cutlery should be placed in baskets in
such a way that no injuries can occur.
 Remove any coarse food deposits from the items being cleaned
before loading them in the dishwasher.
12
Important safety instructions
Children in the vicinity
 Supervise children when they are anywhere near this dishwasher.
Do not let them play with it. There is a danger that children may lock
themselves in the dishwasher.
 Keep children away from chemical agents. These contain irritant
and corrosive ingredients which can cause burning in the mouth,
nose and throat if swallowed, or inhibit breathing. Keep children
away from the dishwasher when the door is open. There could still
be residual chemical agent in the cabinet. Seek medical advice
immediately if a child has swallowed or inhaled chemical agent.
Accessories
 Accessories may only be fitted if approved by Miele. If other parts
are used, any warranty and product liability claims shall be void.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by failure to
comply with these safety instructions and warnings.

Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The cardboard box and packing
materials protect the appliance during
shipping. They have been designed to
be biodegradable and recyclable.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of children.
Danger of suffocation!
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
contain valuable materials. They also
contain certain substances, compounds
and components which were essential
for the proper functioning and safe use
of the equipment. Handling these
materials improperly by disposing of
them in your household waste can be
harmful to your health and the
environment. Therefore, please do not
dispose of your old appliance with
regular household waste and follow
local regulations on proper disposal.
Consult with local authorities, dealers or
Miele in order to dispose of and recycle
electrical and electronic appliances.
Miele assumes no responsibility for
deleting any personal data left on the
appliance being disposed. Please
ensure that your old appliance is kept
away from children until removal.
Observe safety requirements for
appliances that may tip over or pose an
entrapment hazard.
16
Caring for the environment
Energy-saving washing
This dishwasher is exceptionally
economical in its use of water and
electricity. You can make the most of
your machine by following these tips:
 When using powder detergent you
can use 1/3 less detergent if baskets
are only half full.
 You may connect the dishwasher to a
hot water supply. This is particularly
suitable with energy-saving water
heating sources such as solar energy
systems. If the hot water system is
electrically heated and if loads
consist primarily of glassware, we
recommend connecting the machine
to the cold water supply.
 For most economical dishwashing,
make full use of the baskets without
overloading the dishwasher.
 Choose a program that best suits the
degree of soiling and the type of
dishes being washed.
 Select the Normal program for
energy-saving dishwashing. This
program is the most efficient in terms
of its combined energy and water
consumption at cleaning normally
soiled tableware.
 Follow the detergent manufacturer's
recommendations on detergent
dosage.
17

hardness of your water.
– Your local water supplier can tell you
the water hardness level in your area.
– Where the water hardness fluctuates,
e.g. between 18 - 26 gr/gal (17 25 °d - German scale), always
program the dishwasher to the higher
value (26 gr/gal or 25 °d in this
example).
20
It is useful to know your water hardness
so that you can provide the service
technician with this information in the
event of any service calls.
Enter the water hardness below:
____________ gr/gal (°d)
The dishwasher is programmed at the
factory for a water hardness level of
15 °gr/gal (15 d - German scale).
 Select the water hardness level for
your water supply and confirm with
the center button.
See "Settings menu, Water hardness"
for more information.
The following two messages  Refill
rinse aid and  Refill salt may then
appear in the display.
Press any button to confirm them. The
display will change to show the main
menu.
Commissioning
Before using the machine for
the first time, you will need:
– Approx. 2.2 lbs (1 kg) of dishwasher
salt
– approx. 110 ml rinse aid,
– Dishwasher detergent, see
"Operation".
Every dishwasher is tested at the
factory. There will be residual water in
the machine from this test. It is not an
indication that it has been used
previously.
Filling the salt compartment
In order to achieve good cleaning
results, the dishwasher needs to
operate with soft water. Hard water
results in a build-up of calcium deposits
on tableware and in the dishwasher.
Water with a hardness level higher than
0.7 mmol/l (4 gr/gal (4 °d - German
scale)) needs to be softened. This takes
place automatically in the integrated
water softener. The water softener
assembly in the dishwasher is suitable
for a water hardness level of up to
6.5 mmol/l (38 gr/gal (36°d - German
scale)).
If the water in your area is very soft
and constantly lower than 0.7 mmol/l
(4 gr/gal (4 °d - German scale)), you
do not need to add dishwasher salt.
The dishwasher must, however, still
be programmed for the water
hardness level in your area.
 Do not fill the salt compartment
with dishwasher detergent (including
liquid detergent).
Dishwasher detergent will damage
the softener assembly.
 Only use special coarse-grained
dishwasher salt for reactivation, or
pure evaporated salt.
Miele Professional offers appropriate
products.
Other types of salt may contain
insoluble components which can
cause the water softener to
malfunction.
See "Settings menu, Water hardness"
for more information.
21
Commissioning
 When adding salt, only open the door
half way to avoid spills.
 Press the button on the lid of the salt
compartment in the direction of the
arrow until the flap springs open.
 Add salt only until the reservoir is full.
The salt reservoir holds approx. 2.2
lbs (1 kg) of salt, depending on the
type of salt used.
Do not add any more than 2.2 lbs
(1 kg) of salt.
If there is water present in the
compartment, it may be forced out by
the added salt.
 Clean any excess salt from around
the reservoir opening, and then close
the flap.
 Run the "Pre-rinse" program
immediately without a load in order to
remove any traces of salt from the
chamber.
 Open the funnel.
Do not pour any water into the salt
compartment!
22
Commissioning
Salt indicator
Rinse aid
 Fill the salt reservoir with dishwasher
salt for reactivation when  Refill salt
appears in the display.
Rinse aid is needed to prevent spotting
on dishes and glassware.
The rinse aid is filled in the reservoir
and the set amount will be
automatically dosed.
 Press the center button to confirm.
The salt refill indicator will go out.
After the salt reservoir has been filled,
the salt indicator may still appear in the
display if the salt concentration has not
yet reached the correct level. If this is
the case, confirm again with the center
button.
The salt indicator is deactivated if the
dishwasher is set to a water hardness
below 4 gr/gal (4 °dH - German scale).
 Run the "Pre-rinse" or "Short"
program immediately without a load
in order to remove any traces of salt
from the chamber.
 Fill the reservoir with rinse aid
only. Do not fill it with liquid dish
soap or cleaning agent.
This would damage the rinse aid
reservoir.
Suitable products are available from
Miele Professional.
Alternatively household vinegar with a
max. 5 % acid content or liquid citric
acid with a max. 10 % acid content can
be used. 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.
23
Commissioning
Adding rinse aid
 Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring
during the next program.
You can adjust the rinse aid dosage
for best results (see "Settings menu Rinse aid").
Rinse aid indicator
When the  Refill rinse aid message
appears, the reservoir contains
sufficient rinse aid for 2 - 3 programs
only.
 Add rinse aid.
 Press the button on the lid of the
rinse aid reservoir in the direction of
the arrow until the flap springs open.
 Add rinse aid only until it is visible in
the opening.
The rinse aid reservoir holds approx.
4 oz (110 ml).
 Close the flap firmly so that it clicks
into place. Otherwise water can enter
the rinse aid reservoir during a
program.
24
 Press the center button to confirm.
The rinse aid refill indicator will go out.
Loading the dishwasher
Preparing the load
Remove coarse food residues from the
dishware.
There is no need to rinse items under
running water!
Tips
 Ensure that no acid or solvent
residues, especially hydrochloric
acid or chlorides, get inside the
machine.
 Do not wash items soiled with
ash, sand, wax, grease or paint in
the dishwasher.
These substances will damage the
dishwasher.
Dishware can be loaded anywhere in
the baskets, but the following notes
should be observed:
 Load the dishware so that water can
access all surfaces. This ensures that
the items will be properly cleaned.
 Load plates symmetrically in the
upper and lower baskets with the
concave surfaces facing the center of
the basket (as shown on the following
pages).
 Hollow items such as cups, glasses
and pans, etc. should be placed
upside down in the baskets.
 Tall and narrow hollow items should
be placed in the center of the basket
if possible to ensure better water
coverage.
 Concave items such as mugs or
bowls should be placed at an angle
so that the water can run off.
 The spray arms must not be blocked
by items which are too tall or hang
through the baskets. When in doubt,
test for free movement by manually
rotating the spray arms.
 Small items can fall through the
holders in the baskets. Small items
should therefore be placed in the
cutlery basket or cutlery tray
(depending on model).
Some foods may contain natural
dyes, e.g. carrots, tomatoes or
ketchup. Plastic items in the
dishwasher may discolor if large
quantities of these foods find their
way into the dishwasher on the
dishes. The stability of plastic items
is not affected by this discoloration.
 Do not place dishes or cutlery inside
other pieces. They will cover one
another.
 Load the dishware so that water can
access all surfaces. This ensures that
the items will be properly cleaned.
 Make sure that all items are securely
positioned.
25
Loading the dishwasher
Items not suitable for dishwashers:
We recommend
– Wooden cutlery and cookware or
items with wooden parts: these may
discolor and fade. The glue used in
these items is not dishwasher-proof
and wooden handles may come
loose after being washed in a
dishwasher.
– When purchasing new cookware and
cutlery, make sure they are
dishwasher-proof.
– Craft items, antiques, valuable vases
and decorative glassware: such items
are not suitable for dishwashers.
– Plastic items which are not heat
resistant: the high temperatures in
the dishwasher may cause them to
melt or lose shape.
– Copper, brass, tin and aluminum
items: these may discolor or become
matt.
– Colors painted over a glaze: these
may fade after a number of washes.
– Delicate glassware and glassware
containing lead crystal: clouding may

– Clouding may occur on glasses after
frequent washing. If delicate
glassware is washed in the
dishwasher ensure that only a special
glass-care program with very low
temperatures (see program chart) is
selected and that suitable detergent
is used. This will reduce the risk of
clouding.
Please note:
Silver and aluminum which has been
in contact with foods containing sulfur
can discolor.
 Aluminum components (e.g.
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).

Miele Professional.
Detergent tabs can be used.
Only use detergent tabs that are
quick dissolving. Suitable detergent
tabs are available from Miele
Professional.
 Add powder detergent or detergent
tabs to the detergent compartment.
Detergent dosage
 Unless directed otherwise, use one
detergent tab or add 20 to 25 g
detergent to compartment II,
depending on the level of soiling.
With very heavy soiling, you can also
add a small amount of detergent to
compartment l (see "Program chart").
Failure to use the recommended
amount of detergent may adversely
affect the cleaning results.
Liquid detergent
This dishwasher can be fitted with an
external dispenser pump for liquid
detergent (DOS module).
See "Settings menu - External DOS" to
activate the dispenser pump and set
the detergent dosage.
For special soiling or if using liquid
detergent, dispensed by a liquid
detergent pump, contact Miele for
advice on how to adapt the detergent
dosage to the particular
circumstances.
 Detergents containing active
chlorine must not be used.
They can damage plastics and
elastomers in the dishwasher.
Refilling or changing containers
The DOS module is equipped with a
level indicator which gives the Add
detergent message in the display when
the level drops below the minimum.
 As soon as the message appears in
the display, refill or replace the
container with a full one at the end of
the program.
 Confirm the message with the OK
button.
Replace the container in time to
prevent the dispensing system from
being emptied completely.
An empty dispensing system must
be vented before the next program is
started.
37
Operation
 Place the container on the open
dishwasher door or on a surface
which is easy to clean.
Checking consumption
Monitor the amount of process
chemicals used by regularly checking
the level in the container in order to
detect any dispensing irregularities.
Dispensing system maintenance
To ensure that the dispensing system
functions reliably it should be serviced
at specified intervals. This work should
only be performed by Miele Service.
The DOS module dispensing hoses
1
must be replaced at 1 - 1 /2 yearly
intervals.
 Unscrew and remove the siphon.
Place the siphon on the open
dishwasher door.
 Replace the empty container with a
full one.
 Push the siphon into the opening of
the container and screw it on tightly.
Be sure to observe the color coding.
 Wipe up any spilled neutralizing agent
thoroughly.
 Place the container on the floor next

dosage amount, see
"Settings menu, External DOS".
38
Whether you use powder or liquid
detergent, always observe the
manufacturer's instructions.
Operation
 Avoid inhalation of powder
detergents and do not ingest
dishwasher detergent. Detergents
can cause chemical burns in the
nose, mouth and throat. Seek
medical advice immediately 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 chamber.
To avoid the danger of children
coming into contact with the
dishwasher detergent, only add
detergent just before starting the
program and close the door,
activating the safety lock.
Adding detergent
 Add the required amount of detergent
and close the flap.
 Make sure that the detergent
packaging is properly closed after
use to avoid it getting damp and
becoming lumpy.

are described in the Program chart
later on in this booklet.
 Select the program required with the
 button.
The indicator light next to the program
selected will come on.
40
A program should only be cancelled
in the first few minutes, if at all.
Important program stages (e.g.
reactivating the water softener) could
otherwise be omitted.
Operation
Time display
Standby
Before the program starts, the display
shows the duration of the selected
program in hours and minutes. The
remaining runtime is displayed during
the program.
To save energy, the dishwasher will
switch to Standby mode a few minutes
after the last time a button has been
pressed or a few minutes after the end
of the program. The display and the
indicator lights will go out and only the
 indicator will flash slowly.
Each program phase is indicated by a
symbol:
 Pre-rinse
 Main wash
 Interim rinse
 Final rinse
 Drying
 Finished
The displayed program duration may
vary with the same program. It is
influenced by, among other things, the
temperature of the incoming water, the
reactivation process of the water
softener and the amount of dishes.
When a program is selected for the first
time, the display shows an average
program duration for warm water.
The program duration changes if the
electrical connection is changed.
 Press the  button to switch the
display and indicator lights back on.
If the dishwasher is not switched off at
the end of the program, it will switch off
completely after a few minutes in
Standby mode (see "Settings menu,
Optimize standby").

Standby mode while a program is
running, if salt or rinse aid needs to
be replenished or there is a fault.
You can switch off the refill indicators
to replenish salt and rinse aid so that
the dishwasher will go into Standby
despite a lack of salt or rinse aid (see
"Settings menu, Refill display").
You cannot switch off fault
messages.
41
Operation
End of program
Switching off
At the end of a program, the Inoperation indicator light will be visible
flashing slowly with the door shut.
At the end of a program:
The program has finished when  End
or AutoOpen appears in the display and

applicable).
If Extra Drying was selected and
AutoOpen is active, the drying fan will
run for a few minutes after the
program has ended.
 Open the door completely to reengage the door closing mechanism.
You can now empty the dishwasher.
The In-operation indicator light will go
out 10 minutes after the end of the
program if the door is closed.
 If you have deactivated the
automatic door opening function (see
"Settings menu, AutoOpen"), but
would still like to open the door at
the end of the program, then make
sure that you open the door fully.
Otherwise steam from the
dishwasher could damage the edge
of the counter because the fan is no
longer running.
42
 Open the door.
 Turn the dishwasher off with the 
button.
The dishwasher will continue to use
electricity until it is switched off with
the  button.
Tip: If the dishwasher is not going to be
used for a longer period of time, e.g.,
while on vacation, the water supply
should be turned off.
Unloading the dishwasher
Dishes tend to break and chip more
easily when they are hot. Allow the
dishes to cool until they are cool
enough to handle before unloading
them.
The dishes will cool much faster if you
open the door when the program has
ended.
Unload the lower basket first, then the
upper basket and then the cutlery tray
(depending on model).
This will prevent water from the upper
basket and cutlery tray from dripping
onto dishes in the lower basket.
Operation
Interrupting a program
A program is interrupted as soon as the
door is opened.
If the door is closed again, the program
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
necessary and exercise extreme
caution when doing so. Before
closing the door again, leave it ajar
for approx. 20 seconds. This will
enable the temperature in the wash
chamber to settle. Then raise the
door up and push until the catch
engages.
Changing a program
If the detergent dispenser flap has
already opened, powder detergent
must be added for the new program
unless liquid detergent is being
dispensed.
If a program has already started and
you wish to change it, proceed as
follows:
 Open the door.
 Turn the dishwasher off with the 
button.
 Switch the dishwasher on with the 
button.

sure they are sitting correctly.
 Reconnect the water intake valve to
the faucet, making sure it goes on
correctly and is not cross-threaded.
 Open the water faucet gradually to
test for leaks.
If there is a leak, the inlet hose might
not be secured properly, or it may
have been screwed on at an angle.
Unscrew and reconnect the water
inlet hose correctly before tightening
it.

The Miele WaterProof System
Provided your dishwasher has been
installed correctly, the Miele Waterproof
system will provide protection against
water damage throughout its lifetime.
Water intake
 The water in the dishwasher is
NOT safe to drink!
– The dishwasher's connection to the
water supply system must be in
compliance with local codes.
– The water quality should satisfy local
drinking water requirements.
A high iron content can lead to
external rust deposits on the wash
load and the dishwasher itself.
A chloride concentration greater than
100 mg/l in the process water
significantly increases the risk of
corrosion for the wash load.
– In certain regions (e.g. mountainous
areas), the typical water composition
can cause precipitates to form, which
in turn requires the use of softened
water for the dishwasher.
– A device for preventing the return
flow of water is not necessary, as this
dishwasher conforms to the
applicable standards for the
protection of drinking water.
74
– Water pressure: Must be between
4.35 - 145 psi (0.3 - 10 bar).
If the water pressure is lower than
this, the fault message Water intake
will appear in the display (see
"Frequently asked questions").
If the water pressure is too high, a
pressure reducer valve must be fitted.
3
– A shut-off valve with a /4 inch male
thread must be provided on site. It
should be easily accessible so that
the water supply can be turned off
when the dishwasher is not in use.
– The intake hose is an approx.
59" (1.5 m) long DN 10 pressure hose
3
with a /4" screw connection. A
59" (1.5 m) flexible metal hose (test
pressure: 140 bar) is available as an
extension. Do not remove the filter
and flow regulator from the screw
connection.
Plumbing
 To avoid any damage to the
appliance, the dishwasher must only
be connected to fully vented
pipework.
 The intake hose must not be
shortened or damaged in any way as
it contains electrical components
(see illustration).
75
Plumbing
Connection to the drainage
system
– The dishwasher drain contains a
built-in non-return valve which
prevents dirty water from flowing
back into the dishwasher via the
drain hose.
– The dishwasher drainage hose
should be connected to a separate
on-site drain for the dishwasher only.
If no separate drain is available, we
recommend connecting it to a dualchamber siphon.
Venting the drain
If the on-site drain connection is
situated lower than the guide path for
the bottom basket rollers in the open
door, the drain must be vented.
Otherwise a siphoning effect during a
program can cause the appliance to
empty itself of water.
To vent it:
 Open the dishwasher door fully.
– The dishwasher is equipped with a
59" (1.5 m) long flexible drain hose
(clear width of 7/8" (22 mm)).
Clamps for connecting the hose are
included with the dishwasher.
– Do not shorten the drain hose! The
hose can be extended by a
connecting piece and an additional
hose. The length of the drainage line
may not exceed 13' (4 m) and the
delivery head must be no higher than
39" (1 m).
– The drainage system must be able to
handle a discharge rate of at least
4.2 g/min (16 l/min).
 Make sure that there are no kinks
in the hose, and that it is not crushed
or stretched.
76
 Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove it.
 Cut off the top of the vent valve in the
wash chamber.
