Caring for our environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed safely and kept
out of the reach of babies and young
children. Danger suffocation!
Rather than just throwing these materials away, please ensure they are offered for recycling.
2
Disposal of your old appliance
Old appliances contain materials which
can be recycled. Please contact your
dealer, your local waste collection centre or scrap merchant about potential
recycling schemes.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal. See the appropriate advice in the "Warning and safety instructions".

Warning and safety instructions
Read the operating instructions before using this machine for the first
time. They contain important information about the safety, use and
maintenance of the machine. This
way you will avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the machine.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and ensure that new
users are familiar with the content.
Pass them on to any future owner of
the machine.
Correct usage
Only use the washing machine to
wash items which are specified by
the manufacturer to be machine-washable on the wash-care label, and textiles composed of hand-washable wool
or wool blend fabrics as well as satin,
lace, silk and other hand-washable garments.
Any other applications may be dangerous. The manufacturer is not liable for
damage resulting from improper use or
operation.
This appliance should not be operated by children. Supervise its use
by the elderly or infirm.
Technical safety
Before setting up the machine,
check it for any externally visible
damage. Do not install and use a damaged machine.
Before connecting the machine,
ensure that the connection data on
the data plate (fusing, voltage and frequency) match the mains electricity
8
supply. If in any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between the machine and an effective earthing system
which complies with local and national
regulations. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is regularly
tested by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
The machine is built in accordance
with current safety requirements.
Unauthorised repairs could result in unforeseen dangers for the user, for which
the manufacturer cannot accept responsibility. Repairs should only be undertaken by a Miele approved engineer.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
appliance while maintenance or repair
work is being carried out.
The machine 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, or
– the mains fuse is withdrawn.
Warning and safety instructions
This machine must only be connected to the on-site water supply
using a new hose kit. Old hoses must
not be re-used. Check the hose regularly for signs of wear and tear. Change
in good time to avoid the risk of leaks
and subsequent damage.
Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. Only when these parts are
fitted can the safety standards of the
machine be guaranteed.
In countries where there are 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 appliance guarantee.
Use
This equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as caravans, aircraft
etc. However, it may be suitable for
such usage subject to a risk assessment of the installation being carried
out by a suitably qualified engineer.
Before using the machine for the
first time, check that the transit fitting at the rear of the machine has been
removed (see section on "Installation").
During spinning, a transit fitting which is
still in place may result in damage to
both the machine and adjacent furniture or appliances.
Turn off the stopcock 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 immediate
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. Otherwise this will result in flooding.
Take care to ensure that foreign objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins, paper
clips) do not find their way into the machine with the washing. Foreign objects
may damage components of the machine (e.g. suds container, drum),
which in turn can result in damage to
the washing.
Do not install your washing machine in rooms where temperatures
below freezing may occur. Frozen
hoses may burst under pressure.The
reliability of the electronic control unit
may be impaired at temperatures below
freezing point.

Warning and safety instructions
If the correct amount of detergent
is dispensed, the machine should
not need to be descaled. If, however,
you do wish to descale the machine
only use proprietary non-corrosive
descaling agents and strictly observe
the manufacturer’s instructions given on
the packaging. If in doubt, contact the
Miele Customer Service Dept. or your
Miele Dealer.
Textiles which have been
pre-treated in solvent-based cleaning agents must be thoroughly rinsed in
clean water before being washed in the
machine.
Never use solvent-based cleaning
agents in this machine, as this may
result in damage to component parts
and create toxic fumes. Such detergents also pose a fire and explosion
hazard.
Only use dyes specified by the
manufacturer as being suitable for
use in a domestic washing machine. Always observe the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Colour run and dye removers contain sulphur compounds which can
cause damage such as corrosion. Do
not use these products in this machine.
Always make sure the drum is stationary before reaching in to remove laundry. Reaching into a moving
drum is extremely dangerous.
10
Accessories
Accessory parts may only be fitted
when expressly approved by Miele.
If other parts are used, guarantee, performance and product liability claims
may be invalidated.
Disposal of your old machine
Before discarding an old machine
unplug it. Render the plug useless.
Cut off the cable directly behind the appliance to prevent misuse. This should
be done by a competent person.
Washing environmentally and economically
– Water consumption and energy usage are determined by the size of the
load. Load to the maximum recommended for the programme selected.
– Programme durations can vary considerably due to the automatic load
adjustment feature. Depending on
the amount of laundry, the main wash
may be shortened and one rinse
omitted.
– Use the Mixed Wash programme or
the Quick Wash programme for
smaller amounts of laundry.
– Use the Short wash option for normally or very lightly soiled laundry.
– Do not exceed the amounts of detergent which may be recommended by
the manufacturer on the packaging.
– Reduce the amounts of detergent
with smaller loads, (e.g. with a half
load, approx. one third less detergent).
– Select the highest suitable spin
speed in the wash programme when
tumble drying afterwards.
– To save energy wash normally and
lightly soiled laundry at lower temperatures. The 95°C Cottons
programme is probably only needed
in exceptional circumstances, e.g.
for oil based stains or where a very
hot wash is required.
– A main wash (programme without
pre-wash) is sufficient to clean normally soiled laundry.
– By using the additional option Soak
for heavily soiled laundry you can select a lower temperature in the main
wash.
– Use the additional option Soak instead of Pre-wash with heavily soiled
laundry.
If Soak is followed immediately by a
main wash the same suds are used.
11
Before using for the first time
Before using the machine for the first
time ensure that it is correctly installed and connected. See the relevant section under "Installation".
Also check that the fluff filter is securely tightened. Otherwise there is
a risk of water leakage during use.
For safety reasons spinning is not possible until the machine has been prepared for using for the first time. To activate the spinning function you must run
a wash programme without any laundry
and without detergent.
Using detergent could result in an excessive build-up of foam.
This also activates the ball valve. The
ball valve prevents detergent escaping
from the suds container into the sump
during a wash programme, thus making
maximum use of the detergent.
^ Turn on the stopcock.
^ Press the I-ON/0-OFF button in.
^ Turn the programme selector to
COTTONS 40°C.
^ Press the START button.
When this programme has finished turn
the programme selector to "Finish". Your
washing machine is ready for using for
the first time.

How to wash correctly
Brief guide
The headings numbered (A,B,C,...)
show the operating sequence and can
be used as a brief guide.
Before washing
A Sort the laundry.
^ Sort the washing by colour and by
care label symbols. Most garments
have a textile care label in the collar
or side seam.
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately several times before being included in a
mixed load. Always wash whites and
coloureds separately.
Delicate textiles should be washed separately in a delicates programme (use a
washing bag where appropriate).
– Curtains:
Remove lead weights and strips or
place in a laundry bag.
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners:
Any loose wiring in bras, shirt collar
stiffeners, etc. should be removed or
sewn in.
^ Empty all pockets.
Foreign objects (e.g. nails, coins,
paper clips, etc.) can cause damage to textiles and components in
the machine.
^ Badly soiled areas, e.g. collars and
cuffs, and water soluble stains can
be pre-treated with bar soap, liquid
detergent or detergent mixed into a
solution or paste.
With particularly stubborn stains ask
your dry cleaner for advice.
– Knitted garments, trousers and
jeans, T-shirts and sweat shirts:
Turn inside out, if recommended by
the manufacturer.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc. before washing.
– Fasten duvet covers to prevent
smaller items rolling up inside them.
Do not wash any items in this machine which are specified by the
manufacturer as non-machine
washable on the care label. (h
symbol)
Do not use solvent-based cleaning
agents in this machine.

How to wash correctly
B To switch on the machine Press
the "I-ON/0-OFF" button.
C Press the "Lid" button.
^ Open the machine outer lid.
^ Press the drum lock (black arrow)
and at the same time push the front
flap inwards (in the direction of the
arrows) until the lock is released.
^ Open the inner lid.

swing up.
Load the drum:
D Open the drum:
Take care. The drum flaps are
spring-loaded.
^ Gently press your hand against the
rear drum flap.
^ Unfold laundry and load loosely in
the drum. To achieve optimum results
it is advisable to make up mixed
loads consisting of both large and
small items. This improves washing
efficiency and helps distribute the
load evenly to keep the machine stable and reduce noise during spinning. Overloading impairs wash performance and causes more creasing.

been activated.
Adding detergent
All modern detergents produced for
automatic washing machines are suitable, including liquid, compact (concentrated), tablets, liquid tablets and
special application detergents. Use dispensing aids, e.g. balls, if these are
supplied with the detergent. Tablets are
suitable for full loads, but note that it
may be impractical to reduce tablets by
proportion to suit smaller loads.
Woollens and knitwear containing wool
mixtures and hand-washable garments
should be washed using a detergent
specifically designed for washing
woollens.
Silk should be washed using a liquid
detergent specifically designed for
washing woollens. Do not use biological detergents on silk as the enzymes
may damage the silk!
Add detergent according to the amount
recommended on the packaging. The
right amount to dispense will depend
on the following:
Water Hardness
Hardness
range
I
II
Hardness
Type of
level in
water
(hardness) mmol / l
soft
0 - 1.3
°dH
German

1.3 - 2.5
7 - 14
III
hard
2.5 - 3.8
14 - 21
IV
very hard
over 3.8
over 21
It is important to dispense the
correct amount, because . . .
. . . too little has the following results:
– Laundry will not be properly clean
and will in time become grey and
hard to the touch.
– Greasy particles cling to the laundry.
– Limescale deposits on the heater elements.
. . . too much results in the following:
– Excessive foam.
– The quantity of laundry.
– Low level of agitation.
– The soiling level of the laundry.
– Poor washing, rinsing and spinning
results.
Lightly soiled
No visible dirt or stains. Possibly
slight body odour.
Normally soiled
Visibly dirty and/or just a few slight
stains.
– High water consumption (an additional rinse cycle will automatically
switch in).
– Burdening the environment.
Heavily soiled
Stains and soiling clearly visible.
– The water hardness level
Check with your local water supplier
if you do not know the water hardness level in your area.
21
Adding detergent
Adding detergent
Water softeners
A water softener can be used to cut
down on the use of detergents in extremely hard water areas. Dispense according to the amount specified on the
packaging. First add detergent and
then the water softener.
Dispense detergent as specified for
soft water areas.
Miele do not recommend connecting
the machine to a household water softener.
i = Compartment for pre-wash.
This compartment is also used
for starch formulations when
starching separately.
j = Compartment main wash
p = Compartment fabric conditioner
Water is taken in through compartment
i in the pre-wash.
Water is taken in through compartment
j in the main wash. If the capacity of
compartment j is insufficient for the
amount of detergent needed for a
COTTONS programme (e.g. in very
hard water areas), the machine can be
programmed so that water and detergent can also be taken into the main
wash through compartment i , see
"Programmable functions", "Activating
compartment i".
If you wash using several components
(e.g. special application detergents),
we recommend always dispensing the
agents into compartment j in the following order:
1. Detergent
2. Water softener
3. Stain remover
This way the agents are distributed
more efficiently.
Fabric conditioners,
texturisers, liquid starch
Fabric conditioners make garments soft
and fluffy to handle and help prevent
static cling when tumble drying.
Texturisers are synthetic starch formulations and give body to items e.g. shirts,
tablecloths and bed linen.
Starch gives body to items of washing.
^ Dispense according to the amount
specified on the packaging.
22
Adding detergent
Automatic dispensing of fabric
conditioners, texturisers or starch to
laundry at the end of a programme
Adding fabric conditioner or
texturiser separately
^ Add fabric conditioner or texturiser to
compartment p.
^ Turn the programme selector to
"Starch".
^ Select a spin speed.
^ Press the "START" button.
Starching separately
^ Measure and prepare starch in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
^ Add the starch to compartment i.
^ Add the fabric conditioner, texturiser
or liquid starch to compartment p.
Do not exceed the maximum level
mark.
^ Push the dispenser drawer back in.
^ Turn the programme selector to
"Starch".
^ Select a spin speed.
^ Press the "START" button.
The conditioner, texturiser or starch is
automatically dispensed in the final
rinse. At the end of the programme a
small amount of water remains in the
fabric conditioner compartment p.
If starching frequently, clean the dispenser drawer and especially the siphon tube and fabric conditioner
channel. (See section on the detergent dispenser drawer in "Cleaning
and Care"). Do not add starch formulations or viscous liquid starch to
the p compartment as it will clog it
up. See "Starching separately".

Top-up rinse (programmable):
At the end of the main wash additional water flows into the drum, and the suds are cooled slightly. Hot
water might damage plastic drain pipes.
Graduated rinsing:
The suds are cooled at the end of the wash cycle by water flowing in and being pumped away at intervals thereby minimising crease formation.
Rinse and interim spin:
There is a spin between the rinses.
Final spin:
The maximum spin speed according to the programme can be selected with the Spin button. In the
programmes MINIMUM IRON, DELICATES, WOOLLENS, Separate rinse and MIXED WASH, the spin
speed is automatically limited to the maximum spin speed given above.

Cleaning and care
E-Cloth
Disconnect the appliance from the
mains electricity supply and withdraw the plug from the socket prior
to cleaning the machine.
Do not use solvents, abrasive
cleaners, glass cleaners or all-purpose cleaning agents.
These might damage plastic surfaces and other components because of the chemicals they contain.
A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available from
the Miele UK Spare Parts Department,
Part number 98013530, which is suitable for cleaning surfaces such as
stainless steel, glass, plastic and
chrome without the use of chemicals. It
can be washed 300 times.
The washing machine must not be
hosed down.
Cleaning the washing machine
^ Clean the casing, machine lid and inner lid with a mild non-abrasive detergent or soap and water. Wipe dry
with a soft cloth.
^ Clean the fascia panel with a damp
cloth and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
^ The drum can be cleaned using a
suitable proprietary stainless-steel
cleaning agent.
41
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer
^ Remove the detergent dispenser
drawer.
^ Pull out the conditioner insert and the
siphon tube and wash under running
warm water.
^ Also clean the channel over which
the siphon tube is inserted.
^ Wash under running warm water.
^ Replace the conditioner insert and siphon tube and push the detergent
dispenser drawer back into position.
Extra cleaning
Carrying out a hot wash (70°C or
above) with powder detergent approx.
once every six weeks will help to ensure that no deposits build up in the
machine. These can occur when washing is mainly done at low temperatures,
and also lead to unpleasant smells. If
you have no reason to wash laundry occasionally at this high temperature, then
carry out a 95°C Cottons programme as
a cleaning cycle with a biological powder detergent and no laundry, at regular intervals.
42
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the fluff (drain) filter
and pump
^ Place a dish under the drain spout.
Check the drain filter initially after 3-4
washes to ascertain how often it is likely
to require cleaning.
With normal cleaning approx. 2 litres of
water run out.
If the drain outlet is clogged, more water will be retained in the machine (up
to 25 litres).
Caution: If laundry has been washed
at a high temperature, water draining out of the machine will still be
hot. Danger of scalding.
^ Turn the fluff filter lid round 2-3 times.
Do not take it right out.
With large volumes of water the dish will
need to be emptied several times. Secure the fluff filter back into position
and empty the dish before repeating
the procedure.
^ Use the (yellow) filter flap opener
supplied with the machine to open
the access flap.
43
Cleaning and care
^ Once the flow of water ceases, remove the fluff filter completely.
^ Clean the inside of the fluff filter housing.
^ Clean the fluff filter thoroughly.
Remove any deposits of limescale and
detergent or foreign objects from the
thread of the filter housing and filter unit
as they can cause water to leak.
Limescale deposits are often a sign of
using too little detergent.
^ Remove any foreign objects (e.g.
buttons, coins, etc.) and fluff.
^ Turn the impeller by hand to make
sure it rotates freely. Any foreign objects causing an obstruction should
be removed.
^ Put the fluff filter back in place and
secure it.
Make sure the fluff filter is securely
tightened. Otherwise there is a risk
of water leakage during use.
After cleaning
^ Pour approx. 2 litres of water into the
detergent dispenser compartment
j to reactivate the ball valve which
keeps detergent in circulation in the
suds.
44
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the filter in the water
inlet
The washing machine has a filter to
protect the water inlet valve.
^ First turn off the stopcock.
^ Unscrew the threaded union connecting the free end of the inlet hose to
the stopcock.
The accessible filter in the union in the
open end of the inlet hose should be
checked every six months, or more often if there are frequent interruptions to
the external water supply.
^ Remove rubber seal a from the recess.
^ Using pointed pliers, take hold of the
plastic filter bar, remove the filter b
and clean.
^ Put the filter and seal back in the reverse order and reconnect the hose.
Turn on the stopcock and check the
connection is watertight. If water drips
out, tighten the connection.
Never forget to put the filter back in
place after cleaning it.

Appliance guarantee
The appliance is guaranteed for a period of 1 year. See the guarantee booklet supplied with the machine for further
details and complete and return the
registration card.
Installation
Installation surface
^ Remove the transit fitting (next page).
A concrete floor is the most suitable installation surface for a washing machine, being far less prone to vibration
during the spin cycle than wooden
floorboards or a carpeted surface.
The appliance must be level to ensure
safe and proper operation.
Please note the following points:
^ Unscrew the feet until the machine
stands level.
^ Hold the foot tight using a pipe
wrench.
^ The machine must be level and securely positioned.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning,
the machine should not be installed
on soft floor coverings.
^ If installing on a wooden joist floor, we
recommend a plywood base (at least
60x45x3 cm). The base should span
several joists and be bolted to the
joists and not only to the floorboards.
Check for the presence of pipes and
cables first.
^ If possible, install the machine in a
corner, as this is usually the most stable part of the floor.
^ Tighten the counternut using a
screwdriver as indicated.
Levelling and adjusting
Lift the appliance from its packaging
base and move it to its installation site.
Please note:
^ Ensure that the machine feet and the
floor are dry to prevent the machine
from slipping during the spin cycle.
53
Installation
Removing the transit fitting
^ Plug the 4 large holes with the caps
supplied.
^ Unscrew the 4 outer screws marked
A completely.
^ Unscrew the 4 screws marked B.
These screws must then be left on
the transit bars.
The transit fitting together with
screws should be stored in a safe
place for future use. It must be re-fitted if the machine is to be moved
again.
Re-fitting the transit fitting
To refit the transit fitting reverse the procedure described above.
^ Remove the transit bars.
54
Installation
Connection to water supply
The machine should be connected to a
mains water supply in accordance with
standard regulations. In Germany the
washing machine is not required to
have a non-return valve as it has been
designed to comply with the relevant
German DIN standard.
Connection to a household water softener is not recommended.
Connection to the mains water supply
should incorporate a mains stopcock
with 3/4’’ thread. The stopcock should
be fitted by a qualified plumber.
The machine is designed to operate
with a water flow pressure of 1 bar minimum up to 10 bar maximum. The static
water pressure must not exceed 10 bar.
If it is higher than 10 bar it is essential
to fit a reducer valve.
There is a minimum flow pressure of
1 bar pressure if, with the stopcock
opened fully, 5 litres of water flow into a
suitable container in 15 seconds.
The dirt filter in the open end of the inlet
hose must not be removed as it protects the water inlet valve.
The approx. 2.5 m long 3/8" pressure
hose should be connected to the stopcock via the 3/4" threaded union.
Please make sure the washer sits correctly in the union.
A longer hose of 4 metres in length is
available as an optional extra.
This pressure hose is not suitable for
connection to a hot water supply. The
connection point is subject to mains
water pressure. Turn on the stopcock
slowly and check for leaks.
If replacing the inlet hose only use a
hose able to withstand pressure of at
least 70 bar. This also applies to all
fixtures and fittings used. Miele original parts are tested to this standard.
55
Installation
Connection to the drainage
system
The machine drains via a drain pump
with a delivery head of 1 metre.
The drain hose is 1.5 m long. It must
not be kinked as this restricts drainage.
The swivel elbow at the end of the hose
can be turned in either direction, or can
be detached if required, with a sharp
twist and pull.
Drain hose connection:
^ Direct into a sink: Hook the hose over
the edge and secure. Make sure that
the water can flow freely to avoid
flooding and to prevent water from
being sucked back into the machine.
^ Connected securely to a floor gully.
^ Connected securely to a standpipe.
^ Connected securely to a plastic drain
pipe with a rubber nipple. There is no
need to use a non-return valve.
If required, the drain hose can be extended to a length of 5 m. The necessary parts can be purchased from the
Miele Spare Parts Department or your
Miele dealer.
56

to a 230-240V mains supply. The voltage, rated load and fuse rating are
given on the data plate. Please ensure
these match the household mains supply.
Connection should be made via a fused
plug and suitable switched socket
which is easily accessible after installation. For extra safety it is advisable to
install a residual current device (RCD),
with a trip current of 30 mA (in accordance with DIN VDE 0664, VDE 0100,
Section 739). Do not connect via an extension lead.
Important
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following
code:
Where it is necessary to change plugs,
if the colours of the wires in the mains
lead of this appliance do not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals of your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured green and
yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the
letter E or by the earth symbol z or
coloured green, or green and yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must
be connected to the terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter N
or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must
be connected to the terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter L or
coloured red.

Installation
Non-rewireable plugs BS 1363
If this machine is fitted with a
non-rewireable plug, the following information applies:
If the socket outlets are not suitable for
the plug supplied with the product, it
must be cut off and an appropriate plug
fitted. The fuse carrier and fuse should
be removed from the old plug and disposed of.
The plug cut from the flexible cord
should then be disposed of and on no
account be inserted into any socket
elsewhere in the house (electric shock
hazard).
The fuse cover must be refitted when
changing the fuse, and if the fuse cover
is lost, the plug must not be used until a
suitable replacement is obtained. The
colour of the correct replacement cover
is that of the coloured insert in the base
of the plug, or the colour that is embossed in words on the base of the
plug (as applicable to the design of
plug fitted).
Replacement fuses should be ASTA approved to BS 1362 and have the correct rating. Replacement fuse covers
may be purchased from your local electrical supplier or Service agent.
