IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
,WARNING - To reduce the risk of
fire, electric shock or injury to
persons while using your appliance
follow basic safety precautions,
including the following:
Read all instructions before using the
appliance.
~ Check the packaging, the washer
and accessories for any signs of
damage. Do not use a damaged
appliance.
~ GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In
the event of malfunction or breakdown,
grounding will reduce the risk of
electric shock by providing a path of
least resistance for electric current. This
appliance is equipped with a cord
having an equipment- grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
~ WARNING - Improper connection of
the equipment-grounding conductor
may result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician if you
are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded.
~ Do not modify the plug provided
with the appliance - if it will not fit into
the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.
~ Before connecting the machine,
ensure that the connection data on the
data plate (fusing, voltage and
frequency) match the main electrical
supply. If in doubt contact an
electrician.
~ Do not use an extension cord to
connect this appliance to the power
supply. Extension cords do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ 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.
~ Do not install or store this appliance
where it will be exposed to the weather.
~ This appliance is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as recreational
vehicles or aircraft. However, under
certain conditions it may be possible for
an installation in these applications.
Please contact the Miele Technical

weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS
EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has
not been used for such a period, turn
on all hot water faucets and let the
water flow from each for several
minutes before using the washing
machine. This will release any built-up

can be trapped in the drum. This may
cause major injuries or the death of the
child.
~ The drum door glass will be hot
when washing at very high
temperatures.
Do not touch the glass. Danger of
burns! Keep children away from the
washer when in use.
~ Only use the washing machine to
wash items which are specified by the

Program sequence
The washer is equipped with an
electronic control which determines the
load size automatically. The washer
determines the required water
consumption for each load depending
on quantity and water absorbency of
the laundry. Different program
sequences and wash times will result.
The program sequence shown here
represents the basic program with a
maximum load. Possible "Extras" are
not considered.
The washer’s sequence display will
indicate the current cycle of the
selected wash programs.
Special features in the program
sequence:
Anti-crease
The drum continues to turn up to
30 minutes after the program ends to
prevent creases. The washer can be
opened at any time.
Exception: The program "Woollens" has
no anti-crease feature.
1)
Pre-rinse
To rinse dust, a pre-wash without
detergent is automatically added to
the program.
2)
High Spin
Before the wash program starts, a
high spin is carried out to remove air
from the pillows. After the spin the
program starts with the water intake.
3)
Outerwear
The items will be spun only after the
main wash.
4)
Pre-rinse
To remove heavy soiling the laundry
will be pre-rinsed twice.

Installation
Water connection
Maintenance
Cold water connection
Replace the water hoses only with
genuine Miele hoses.
A water faucet with 3/4" thread must be
provided on-site. If none is available the
machine must be connected to a water
line by a qualified plumber.
Extension hoses
Extension hoses (8’ 2" or 13’ [2.5 m or
4 m]) may be obtained from Miele.
The water pressure must be between
14.5 -145 psi (1 -10 bar). If the water
pressure is greater than 145 psi
(10 bar), a pressure reducer must be
installed. If the water pressure is below
15 psi (1 bar), there will not be enough
water available for a complete fill.
The cold water hose (blue mark) is
not suitable for a hot water
connection.
^ Connect the cold water intake hose
(blue mark) to the cold water valve.
^ Turn on the valve(s) and check for
leaks.
The water intake hoses are
equipped with screen filters. Do not
remove these filters except for
cleaning.
53
Installation
Hot water connection
Connecting the machine to a hot water
supply will lead to low electrical
consumption during hot water
operation. The hot water temperature at
the water supply must not exceed
158°F (70°C).
The water in single water lines from the
hot water source cool faster when not in
constant use. To heat the wash water
more electricity must be used. The
same conditions for the hot water as for
the cold water connection will then
apply.
^ Connect the hot water intake hose
(red mark) to the water supply.
The connection of the machine to a
hot water line only, is not possible
for functional reasons.
54
If the washer is not to be installed for
hot water connection, the settings "Main
wash", "Pre-wash" and "Rinse" must be
adjusted respectively. The hot water
intake hose must be removed.
^ Select in "Settings - Supervisor level"
the respective extras "cold".
The program times may be
extended.
^ Unscrew the hot water intake hose
(red mark).
^ Screw on the supplied stopper.
Installation
Drainage
There are two drainage extras for this
machine:
Drain valve
The machine is drained with a
motorized drain valve. A connection
can be made to an on-site floor drain
(gully with an air gap) on an angle.
If necessary the drain hose can be
extended up to 16’ 5" (5 m). The hose
extension can be purchased from your
Miele dealer or Miele.
The drain pump must be replaced for
drain heights over 3 ft (1 m). The
maximum allowable drain height is 5 ft
11 in (1.8 m). A stronger pump for
these heights can be purchased from
your Miele dealer or Miele.
Drain pump
The wash water is drained using a
pump with a 3 ft (1 m) delivery height.
Make sure there are no kinks in the
drain hose. The elbow on the end of the
drain hose can be turned or removed if
necessary.
Possible connections:
1. Directly into a sink: Hook the hose
over the edge of the sink and secure
it firmly (e.g. by tying the hose to the
water faucet).
2. To a stand pipe: Place the drain
hose into a 11/2" (4 cm) stand pipe
and secure it firmly.
3. To a floor drain: The machine is
equipped with an air gap/
anti-siphoning system so that no
minimum drain height is required.
55
