Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old appli‐
ance
The packaging is designed to protect
the washing machine from damage dur‐
ing transportation. The packaging ma‐
terials 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.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the manufactur‐
ing process and also reduces the
amount of waste in landfill sites. Ensure
that any plastic wrappings, bags etc.
are disposed of safely and kept out of
the reach of babies and young children.
Danger of suffocation.
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.
6
Warning and Safety instructions
This washing machine complies with current safety requirements.
Inappropriate use can, however, lead to personal injury and dam‐
age to property.
To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the machine, please
read these instructions carefully before using it for the first time.
They contain important information on its safety, use and mainte‐
nance.
Keep these instructions in a safe place and ensure that new users
are familiar with the content. Pass them on to any future user.
Correct application
 This washing machine is designed for domestic use and for use in
similar environments by guests in hotel or motel rooms, bed &
breakfasts and other typical living quarters. This does not include
common/shared facilities or commercial facilities within hotels, mo‐
tels or bed & breakfasts.
 The washing machine is not suitable for outdoor use.
 It must only be used to wash garments which have been declared
suitable for washing by the manufacturer indicated on the garment
care label. Any other use is not permitted. Miele cannot be held lia‐
ble for damage resulting from incorrect or improper use or operation.
 This washing machine is not intended for use by persons (includ‐
ing children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities,
or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning its use by a person responsible
for their safety.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
 Young children must not be allowed to use this appliance.
 Older children may only use the appliance when its operation has
been clearly explained to them and they are able to use it safely, rec‐
ognising the dangers of misuse.
 Cleaning work may only be carried out by older children under the
supervision of an adult.
 Please supervise children in the vicinity of the washing machine
and do not let them play with it.
Technical safety
 Please observe the instructions in "Installation and connection"
and "Technical data".
 Before setting up the washing machine, check it for any externally
visible damage. Do not install or use a damaged machine.
 Before connecting the washing machine, ensure that the connec‐
tion data on the data plate (fuse rating, voltage and frequency)
matches the mains electricity supply. If in any doubt, consult a quali‐
fied electrician.
 Reliable and safe operation of this washing machine can only be
assured if it has been connected to the mains electricity supply.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
 The electrical safety of this washing machine can only be guaran‐
teed when continuity is complete between it and an effective earth‐
ing system which complies with current local and national safety
regulations. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is
present and regularly tested and, where there is any doubt, the
household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified electri‐
cian. Miele cannot be held liable for the consequences of an inade‐
quate earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
 Do not connect the washing machine to the mains electricity sup‐
ply by a multi-socket adapter, extension lead or similar. These do
not guarantee the required safety of the machine (fire hazard due to
the risk of overheating).
 Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele spare
parts. Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when
Miele replacement parts are used.
 The electrical socket must be easily accessible after installation
so that the machine can be disconnected from the electricity supply
if necessary.
 Unauthorised repairs could result in unforeseen dangers for the
user, for which Miele cannot accept liability. Repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician, otherwise any
subsequent damage will not be covered by the warranty.
 If the connection cable is faulty, it must only be replaced by a
Miele approved service technician to protect the user from danger.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
 In the event of a fault or for cleaning purposes, the washing ma‐
chine is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– it is switched off at the wall socket and the plug is withdrawn, or
– it is switched off at the mains circuit breaker.
 The Miele Waterproof system protects from water damage provi‐
ded the following conditions have been met:
– The machine is correctly plumbed in and connected to the elec‐
tricity supply.
– If a fault or damage has been identified, the machine must be ex‐
amined by a competent person before further use, and repaired if
necessary.
 The water flow pressure must be at least 100 kPa and should not
exceed 1000 kPa.
 This washing machine must not be installed and operated in mo‐
bile installations (e.g. on a ship).
 In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the machine 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 machine warranty.
 Do not make any alterations to the machine, unless authorised to
do so by Miele.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Do not install the washing machine in a room where there is a risk
of frost. Frozen hoses may burst or split. The reliability of the elec‐
tronic control unit may be impaired at temperatures below freezing
point.
 Before using the machine for the first time, check that the transit
bars at the rear of the machine have been removed (see "Installation
and connection - Removing the transit bars"). During spinning, a
transit bar which is still in place may result in damage to both the
machine and adjacent furniture or appliances.
 Turn off the tap if the machine is to be left for any length of time
(e.g. holiday), especially if there is no floor drain (gully) in the imme‐
diate vicinity.
 Flooding danger.
If hooking the drain hose into a wash basin, check that the water can
drain off quickly enough to prevent the sink from overflowing. Make
sure the drain hose is secure, so that the force of the water flowing
out of the hose does not dislodge it.
 Take care to ensure that foreign objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins,
paper clips) do not find their way into the machine with the laundry.
These may damage components of the machine (e.g. suds contain‐
er, drum), which in turn can result in damage to the laundry.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 Take care when opening the drum door after using the steam
function. There is a danger of burning due to escaping steam and
the high temperature of the surface of the drum as well as the port‐
hole glass. Stand back away from the machine and wait until the
steam has dissipated.
 The maximum load for this washing machine is 8 kg (dry weight).
See the "Programme chart" for the maximum recommended loads
for individual programmes.
 If the correct amount of detergent is dispensed, the machine
should not need to be descaled. If, however, you do wish to descale
it, only use a proprietary natural citric acid based descaling agent.
Miele recommends using Miele descaler for washing machines
which is available to order online at www.miele-shop.com (depend‐
ing on country) or from Miele. Strictly observe the instructions on the
packaging.
 Textiles which have been pre-treated in solvent based cleaning
agents must be thoroughly rinsed in clean water before being wash‐
ed in the machine.
 Do not use solvent based cleaning agents, e.g. those containing
benzine, in this machine, as this may result in damage to component
parts and create toxic fumes. Such agents also pose a fire and ex‐
plosion hazard.
 Do not use solvent based cleaning agents, e.g. those containing
benzine, to clean the external surfaces of the machine. They can
cause damage to plastic surfaces.
 Only use dyes specified by the manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a domestic washing machine. Always observe the manufac‐
turer's instructions carefully.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
 Colour run and dye removers contain sulphur compounds which
can cause damage such as corrosion. Do not use these products in
this machine.
 If detergent comes into contact with the eyes, rinse them thor‐
oughly with lukewarm water immediately. If swallowed, seek medical
assistance immediately and retain the packaging or label for refer‐
ence. Those with skin problems or sensitive skin should avoid their
skin coming into contact with detergent.
Accessories
 Only use genuine Miele spare parts and accessories with this ap‐
pliance. If spare parts or accessories from other manufacturers are
used, this will invalidate the warranty, and Miele cannot accept liabil‐
ity.
 A Miele tumble dryer can be stacked on top of a Miele washing
machine using the appropriate stacking kit (available as an optional
accessory). Please make sure you order the correct one for the Miele
washing machine and Miele tumble dryer.
Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by non-compli‐
ance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

Before using for the first time
 Before using the machine for the
first time, ensure that it is correctly
installed and connected. See "Instal‐
lation and connection". Also check
that the filters are securely tightened
to prevent the risk of water leaks
during use.
This washing machine has undergone
a complete functional test at the fac‐
tory and there will be some residual
water in the drum from this process.
For safety reasons, spinning is not pos‐
sible until the machine has been pre‐
pared for use for the first time. To acti‐
vate the spinning function, you must
run a wash programme without laundry
and without detergent.
Using detergent could result in an ex‐
cessive build-up of foam.

The TwinDos unit needs to be activa‐
ted before running the first pro‐
gramme.
 Please see "TwinDos".
TwinDos
The washing machine has an integrated
detergent dispensing unit.
The detergent dispensing unit can be
used with
1. the Miele 2 Phase System
or
2. any other liquid detergent and/or fab‐
ric softener
The Miele 2 Phase System
The Miele 2 Phase System uses a base
detergent (UltraPhase 1) and a deter‐
gent enhancer (UltraPhase 2). In order
to achieve optimum results, the agents
are dispensed separately during the
wash process. The 2 Phase System
cleans both white and coloured textiles
thoroughly. UltraPhase 1 and
UltraPhase 2 single use cartridges are
available to order from Miele or via the
internet at www.miele-shop.com (de‐
pending on country).
Liquid detergent/Fabric softener
The washing machine is supplied with
two refillable containers which you can
fill with liquid detergent and/or fabric
softener.
How TwinDos works
Automatic detergent dispensing for a
wash cycle is activated via the Dos 
sensor.
To use the TwinDos function, you need
to specify the following information for
the electronic unit:
1. The detergent type and/or fabric
softener with which the containers
are filled.
2. The dosage amount of the liquid de‐
tergent and/or fabric softener. The
dosage amount for Miele products is
preset at the factory.
Do not fill the containers with any
specialist detergents. Use cap dos‐
ing or the detergent dispenser draw‐
er for these.
Automatic dispensing cannot be selec‐
ted with some programmes, depending
on the detergent present in the TwinDos
system. For example, automatic dis‐
pensing cannot be activated for the
Woollens programme if the Miele 2
Phase System is being used. This pre‐
vents woollen garments being dam‐
aged by a detergent which is not suita‐
ble for washing wool.

Energy and water consumption
Detergent consumption
– Water consumption and energy us‐
age are determined by the size of the
load.
To make the most out of your ma‐
chine, load the maximum dry load for
the programme you are using.
– For precise dispensing, use automat‐
ic detergent dispensing.
– When smaller amounts of laundry are
washed, the automatic load recogni‐
tion system will reduce the amount of
water and energy used.
– Use the Express 20 programme for
small, lightly soiled loads.
– Modern detergents make it possible
to wash at lower temperatures (e.g.
20°C). Washing using lower tempera‐
ture settings will save energy.
– Adjust the dosage to the degree of
soiling of the laundry.
– Do not exceed the amounts of deter‐
gent recommended by the manufac‐
turer on the packaging.
When drying with a tumble dryer
Selecting the highest possible spin
speed for the wash programme will
save energy when drying in a tumble
dryer afterwards.
– To maintain the hygiene of the ma‐
chine, carry out a hot wash (60°C or
above) using powder detergent at
regular intervals. Hygiene info will ap‐
pear in the display to remind you to
carry out a hot wash.
– Use the hot water connection to save
energy.

found in "Miele's guide to laundry
care". Please contact Miele to obtain a
copy of this booklet.
 If you use a solvent-based
 Empty all pockets.
 Foreign objects (e.g. nails, coins,
paper clips, etc.) can cause damage
to garments and components in the
machine.
cleaning agent (e.g. one containing
benzine) to pre-treat a stain, make
sure that any plastic parts (e.g. but‐
tons) are protected, and that the
cleaning agent is rinsed off before
washing the garment in the machine.
 Do not use solvent-based clean‐
ing agents in or on this machine.
General tips
Sorting the laundry
– Curtains: Remove lead weights first
or place in a laundry bag.
 Sort the laundry by colour and by
care label. Most garments have a tex‐
tile care label in the collar or side
seam.
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners: Any
loose wiring in bras, shirt collar stiff‐
eners, etc. should be removed or
sewn in.
Useful tip: Dark textiles often contain
excess dye and should be washed sep‐
arately several times before being inclu‐
ded in a mixed load. Always wash white
and coloured items separately.
– Close any zips, attach velcro fasten‐
ers, fasten hooks and eyes etc. be‐
fore washing.
Pre-treating stains
 Badly soiled areas, stains etc. should
be cleaned as soon as possible, pref‐
erably while still fresh. Spillages
should be carefully dabbed off using
a soft, colourfast cloth. Do not rub.
– Fasten duvet covers and pillow cases
to prevent small items from being rol‐
led up inside them.
Do not wash any items in this machine
which are specified by the manufactur‐
er as not washable on the care label
( symbol).

helps distribute the load evenly during
spinning.
Please note the maximum load for the
different wash programmes. The rele‐
vant programme load is always shown
in the display when you select a pro‐
gramme.
The most efficient use of energy and
water is achieved when a full load is

– laundry not getting properly clean
and with time it may become grey
and hard to the touch.
– greasy particles clinging to the laun‐
dry.
– limescale deposits on the heater ele‐
ments.
Too much detergent results in:
– excessive foam which causes a low
level of agitation and poor wash,
rinse and spin results.
– high water consumption (an addition‐
al rinse cycle will automatically
switch in).
– a greater burden to the environment.

– Remove air from the items before washing to prevent an exces‐
sive build-up of foam. To do this, either push the items into a nar‐
row laundry bag to compress them or tie the items together with a
washable strap.
– Please observe the instructions on the wash care label.
Drain/Spin
Notes
–
– Drain only: Select 0 rpm for the spin speed.
– Make sure you select the appropriate spin speed.
Clean machine
75°C
No load
With frequent washing at low temperatures there is a danger of a build-up of
bacteria in the washing machine.
Cleaning the washing machine will significantly reduce bacteria, fungus and bio‐
film and prevent the build-up of unpleasant odours.
Notes
– Optimum results can be achieved by using Miele dishwasher and
washing machine cleaner. Alternatively, a universal powder deter‐
gent can be used.
– Dispense the machine cleaner or universal powder via the deter‐
gent dispenser drawer.
– Do not load any laundry. The drum must be empty for this ma‐
chine maintenance wash.

Extra options
Extra options are selected and deselec‐
ted via the relevant buttons and the dis‐
play.
ECO
This option reduces energy consump‐
tion whilst maintaining cleaning efficien‐
cy. This is achieved by increasing the
wash duration and at the same time re‐
ducing the wash temperature selected.
Extra gentle
This option decreases mechanical ac‐
tion in order to reduce creasing.
Extra quiet
 Press the button for the Extra option
you want.
The relevant button will light up.
Not all Extra options are suitable for use
with every programme.
You can only select Extra options which
are compatible with the programme be‐
ing used.
ProgrammeManager
The ProgrammeManager Extra option
can be used to customise the washing
programmes to suit your requirements.
Intensive
For hard-wearing laundry that is very
heavily soiled. Cleaning efficiency is in‐
creased through more intense mechani‐
cal action and the application of more
heat energy.
This option reduces noise levels during
the programme. Use this if you want to
wash during quiet periods (for instance,
when children are sleeping). The ma‐
chine will activate the "Rinse hold" op‐
tion and not spin. The programme dura‐
tion is longer.
AllergoWash
This option should be used where high
standards of hygiene are required. More
energy is used to lengthen temperature
holding times and more water is used
to increase rinsing efficiency. The gar‐
ments must be suitable for drying in a
tumble dryer   and suitable for iron‐
ing  .
Not all ProgrammeManager options
are suitable for use with every pro‐
gramme. Please refer to the "Wash
programme chart - ProgrammeMan‐
ager" for a list of suitable pro‐
grammes.
53
Extra options
Steam smoothing 
Water plus
Steam is injected into the drum at the
end of the wash process. Reducing the
maximum load by 50% will give a bet‐
ter result. For steam smoothing to work
properly there needs to be a certain
amount of residual moisture still present
in the laundry. The final spin speed is
therefore adjusted accordingly.
The water level in the main wash and
the rinses will be increased if the Water
plus Extra option is selected.
The garments must be suitable for dry‐
ing in a tumble dryer   and suitable
for ironing  .
For laundry with large amounts of dirt,
e.g. dust and sand.
Short
An additional rinse cycle can be carried
out to give a better rinse result.
For light soiling with no visible staining.
The wash duration is reduced.
Stains
In order to clean stained laundry more
effectively, you can choose from a list
of various types of stains. The wash
programme will then adapt to the types
of stains selected. You can select a
maximum of three stains per wash cy‐
cle.
Further options
Soak
For heavily soiled and stained items
with protein stains.
A duration of between 30 minutes and 5
hours in 30-minute increments can be
chosen for the soak process. See "Set‐
tings" for more information.
The factory default setting is 30 mi‐
nutes.
54
You can select by how much the water
level is increased (see "Settings - Water
plus level").
Pre-wash
Extra rinse
Rinse hold
The laundry is not spun after the final
rinse and remains in the final rinse wa‐
ter. This helps prevent creasing if the
laundry is not going to be removed
from the drum immediately after the
end of the programme.

Detergent
The correct detergent
Detergent dispensing aids
All detergents produced for automatic
front loading washing machines are
suitable. Follow the manufacturer's in‐
structions and dosage recommenda‐
tions on the packaging.
Use dispensing aids, (e.g. balls) if these
are supplied with the detergent, partic‐
ularly when using liquid detergent.
The right amount to dispense
will depend on the following:
– The soiling level of the laundry.
– The quantity of laundry.
– The water hardness level.
Check with your local water supplier
if you do not know the water hard‐
ness level in your area.
Water softeners
A water softener can be used to cut
down on the use of detergents in areas
with water hardness levels II and III.
Dispense according to the amount
specified on the packaging. First add
detergent and then the water softener.
You can then use the recommended
amount of detergent for water hardness
level I.
Water hardness levels

Refill packs of detergent
When purchasing detergent, buy refill
packs wherever possible. This helps re‐
duce the amount of waste packaging.
Fabric softeners and liquid
starch
Fabric softeners
make garments soft to handle and help
prevent static cling when tumble drying.
Fabric shapers
are synthetic starches and give an even
stiffer hold.
Starch
stiffens and gives body to items of
laundry, e.g. shirts, tablecloths and bed
linen.

Procedure for draining the washing
machine
When draining water from the ma‐
chine, do not unscrew the filters
completely or take them right out.
 Place a suitable container, e.g. a
Miele universal oven tray, under the
access panel.
 Press the drain pump access panel.
The panel will spring open.
Blocked drain outlet
If the drain outlet is blocked, a large
quantity of water (up to 25 litres) can re‐
main in the washing machine.
 Caution: If laundry has been
washed at a high temperature, water
draining out of the machine will still
be hot. Danger of scalding!
 Slowly and carefully unscrew the fil‐
ters to let the water out. Be careful
not to release too much water at
once. If the flow of water is too
strong, some water can seep into the
washing machine base and activate
the water protection float switch. This
will prevent the washing machine
from functioning.
 Tighten the filters back up again if
you need to interrupt the flow of wa‐
ter.
Once the flow of water ceases:

Installation and connection
Installation surface
A concrete floor is the most suitable in‐
stallation surface for a washing ma‐
chine, being far less prone to vibration
during the spin cycle than wooden
floorboards or a carpeted surface.
Please note:
 The machine must be level and se‐
curely positioned.
 To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
If installing on a wooden joist floor:
Transporting the washing ma‐
chine to its installation site
To manoeuvre the washing machine out
of its packing case to its installation
site, hold it by the front feet as well as
by the edge of the lid where it protrudes
to the rear of the machine.
 Ensure that the machine feet and
the floor are dry to prevent the ma‐
chine from slipping during the spin
cycle.
Removing the transit bars
 We recommend a plywood base (at
least 59 x 52 x 3 cm). The base
should span several joists and be
bolted to the joists and not only to
the floorboards. Check for the pres‐
ence of pipes and cables first.
Useful tip: If possible, install the ma‐
chine in a corner, as this is usually the
most stable part of the floor.
 Remove the left and right covers.
1. Pull off the transit bar covers and
2. then use a screwdriver to release the
catches at the top and bottom.

Installation and connection
 Using the spanner supplied, turn the
left-hand transit bar 90°, then
 Turn the right-hand transit bar 90°,
then
 withdraw the transit bar.
 withdraw the transit bar.
88
Installation and connection
 To avoid the risk of injury, the
holes for the transit bars must be
covered after the transit bars have
been removed.
 Secure the transit bars to the back of
the washing machine. Make sure the
top catch is located above the holder.
 The washing machine must not

be moved without the transit bars in
place. Store them as shown or keep
them in a safe place for future use.
They must be refitted if the machine
is to be moved again (e.g. when
moving house).
Refitting the transit bars
Refitting is carried out by reversing the
procedure.
89
Installation and connection
Levelling the machine
The washing machine must stand per‐
fectly level on all four feet to ensure
safe and proper operation.
Incorrect installation may increase elec‐
tricity and water consumption and may
cause the machine to move about.
Screwing out and adjusting the feet
The four adjustable screw feet are used
to level the machine. All four feet are
screwed in when the machine is deliv‐
ered.
 Use a spirit level to check that the
washing machine is standing level.
 Hold foot 1 securely with a pipe
wrench. Turn counter nut 2 again us‐
ing the spanner supplied until it sits
firmly up against the housing.
 All four counter nuts must be
firmly up against the housing. Please
also check this for the feet which did
not need adjustment. Otherwise
there is a danger of the machine
moving about.
 Using the spanner supplied, turn
counter nut 2 in a clockwise direc‐
tion. Then turn counter nut 2 together
with foot 1 to unscrew.

Installation and connection
The Miele water protection
system
The Miele water protection system pro‐

overflow protection
– the drain hose

The inlet hoses
– The casing on the inlet hoses con‐
tains two solenoid valves , which
cut off the water intake directly at the
tap. These valves provide two-fold
protection. In the event that one of
the valves is faulty, the other valve
will cut off the water intake.
Blocking the water intake at the tap
means that the inlet hoses are only
under pressure whilst water is being
taken into the machine. For the re‐
mainder of the time, pressure on the
inlet hoses is negligible.
– Protection against the solenoid
valves bursting.
The solenoid valves are pressure tes‐
ted to between 7000 kPa and
10000 kPa against bursting.
– The double-skinned inlet hoses 
have a pressure-resistant inner hose
and a protective sleeve. Any leaking
water is fed into the sump  through
this protective sleeve. A float switch
 closes the solenoid valves, pre‐
venting any more water flowing into
the machine and water in the suds
container is pumped away.
Installation and connection
The electronic unit  and drainage
and overflow protection
– Drainage protection
Any leaking water is collected in the
sump  in the base of the machine.
A float switch  closes the solenoid
valves , preventing any more water
from flowing into the machine and
water in the suds container is pum‐
ped away.
– Overflow protection
If the water level exceeds a certain
level, the drain pump  switches in
and pumps the excess water away in
a controlled manner.
Should the water level rise repeatedly
in an uncontrolled way, the drain
pump  will switch on continuously,
the washing machine will indicate
that there is a fault and a tone will
sound.
Drain hose
The drain hose is protected by a venti‐
lation system which prevents the wash‐
ing machine from being emptied com‐
pletely.

This appliance must be installed ac‐
cording to AS/NZS 3500.1. Backflow
prevention is already integrated in the
appliance.
 The safety valves contain electri‐
cal components. They must not be
connected in areas where there is
the risk of water or other liquids
reaching them, e.g bathrooms.
The safety valves must not get wet.
The protective sleeve of the hose
must not be damaged or kinked.
94
The washing machine should be con‐
nected to a mains water supply in ac‐
cordance with current local and nation‐
al safety regulations.
The machine is designed to operate
with a flow pressure of between 100
and 1000 kPa. If it is higher than 1000
kPa, it is essential to fit a reducer valve.
Connection to the water supply should
incorporate taps with a 3/4" threaded
union. The taps should be fitted by a
qualified plumber.
 The connection points are sub‐
ject to mains water pressure. Turn on
the taps slowly and check for leaks.
Correct the position of the washer
and the union if appropriate.
Installation and connection
Maintenance and care
Only use a Miele Waterproof system
hose should you need a replacement.
The union nut on the casing at the
end of the water inlet hose contains
a dirt filter which protects the sole‐
noid valves.
This dirt filter must not be removed.
95
Installation and connection
This washing machine can be operated
with cold mains water and/or hot water.
Markings of water intake hoses
Hot water
– If you wish to use a hot water con‐
nection with the washing machine, it
must be reprogrammed as described
in "Settings - Water intake".
– The temperature of hot water at the
mains water tap must not exceed
60°C. The preferred temperature is
55°C. Consult a plumber if the tem‐
perature at the tap exceeds 60°C.
Cold water

 For technical reasons, the wash‐
ing machine must always be con‐
nected to cold mains water.
Cold water (tap water)
The washing machine is programmed
to cold water operation at the factory.
The other water intake hose can be
fixed at the back of the appliance.
96
– Before connecting to the mains water
tap, check that the outflow of cold
water does not exceed 5 litres. Each
additional litre of cold water reduces
the energy efficiency.
– If the hot water tap is turned off for
some time, the washing machine will
automatically switch to the cold wa‐
ter connection. This safety measure
is not intended for the permanent op‐
eration of the appliance. The washing
machine continues to wash using hot
water operation, but washing results
are worsened.
Installation and connection
Drainage
Please note:
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre. The
drain hose must not be kinked as this
restricts drainage. The swivel elbow at
the end of the hose can be turned in ei‐
ther direction, or can be detached if re‐
quired, with a sharp twist and pull.
If required, the drain hose can be exten‐
ded to a length of 5 m. The necessary
parts can be purchased from Miele.
For a delivery head of more than 1 m
(up to a max. of 1.8 m) a replacement
drain pump will need to be fitted.
Please contact Miele for advice.
If necessary, the drain hose can be ex‐
tended to a length of 2.5 m. The neces‐
sary parts can be purchased from
Miele.
Drain hose connection:
1. Direct into a sink or basin:
a Adapter
b Nut
c Hose clip
d End of the hose
 Fit the adapter  to the sink drain
outlet using the nut .
Please note:
 Attach the end of the hose  to the
adapter .
– Hook the hose over the edge and
secure.
 Use a screwdriver to tighten the hose
clip  up close to the nut.
– Make sure that the water can drain
away freely without hindrance.
Otherwise there is a risk of water
overflowing or of some of the
drained water being sucked back
into the machine.
2. Connected securely to a plastic drain
pipe with a rubber nipple. There is no
need to use a siphon.
3. Connected securely to a floor gully.
4. Connected securely to a standpipe.
97
Installation and connection
Electrical connection
The washing machine is supplied with a
mains cable with moulded plug for con‐
nection to a 230V mains supply. The
voltage, rated load and plug rating are
given on the data plate. Please ensure
these match the household mains sup‐
ply.
 The accessibility of the plug
must always be ensured in order to
separate the washing machine from
the mains. Do not connect the appli‐
ance to an extension lead or multisocket adapter as they do not guar‐
antee the required safety of the ap‐
pliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
All electrical work should be carried out
only by a suitably qualified and compe‐
tent person, in strict accordance with
national and local safety regulations.
For extra safety, it is advisable to install
a residual current device (RCD), with a
trip current of 30 mA. Ensure power is
not supplied to the appliance until after
installation work has been carried out.
Connection should be made via a suita‐
ble switched socket.
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.
