Caring for the environment
Energy saving washing
This dishwasher is economical in the
use of water and electricity. For best
results follow these tips:
^ For lowest energy consumption you
may connect the dishwasher to a
cold water source.
^ For fastest possible wash times, with
slightly higher energy consumption,
connect the dishwasher to a hot
water source.
^ Make full use of the baskets without
overloading for the most economical
washing.
^ Use the correct amount of detergent
and rinse aid. Detergent dosage is
dependent upon the amount of
soiling and type of dishware being
washed. See the "Program Guide" for
more information.
^ When using powder or liquid
detergent, reduce the amount to 2/3
of the normal amount when washing
a small load.
^ Choose a program that best suits the
degree of soiling and the type of
dishes being washed.
10
Disposal of the packing
material
The cardboard box and packaging
protect the appliance during shipping.

recyclable. Please recycle.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of children.
Danger of suffocation!
Disposal of an old machine
Old appliances may contain materials
that can be recycled. Please contact
your local recycling authority about the
possibility of recycling these materials.

The selected language set is marked
with a ( check.
^ Select the hardness of your water
supply and confirm with the center
button.
Water hardness
The display changes to the water
hardness setting.
To achieve good cleaning results, the
dishwasher needs soft water. Hard
water results in calcium deposits on
dishware and in the dishwasher.
If your tap water hardness is above 4 °d
(4 gr/gal [US]), the water should be
softened.
– Your local water authority will be able
to advise you of the water hardness
level in your area.
See "Settings - Water hardness" for
more information.
Two notes appear in the display.
After confirming these notes, : Add
and/or : Add salt may
appear in the display.
Confirm these notes. The display
changes to the Main menu.
rinse aid
These basic settings are saved after
the first full program cycle is
completed.
– The dishwasher must be
programmed to correspond to the
water hardness in your area.
– In areas where the water hardness
fluctuates (e. g. 37 - 50 °d
[39 -52 gr/gal]) always program the
machine to the higher value (in this
example 50 °d [52 gr/gal]).
13
Before using for the first time
Every dishwasher is tested before
leaving the factory. Any water
remaining in the machine is from the
final factory test and does not
indicate that the machine has been
used.
Filling the salt container
To achieve good cleaning results, the
dishwasher needs soft water (water that
is low in minerals). Hard water results in
calcium deposits on dishware and in
the dishwasher.
Therefore, if your tap water hardness is
above 4 °d (4 gr/gal) the water should
be softened. The built-in water softener
is designed for this purpose. The water
softener is suitable for a water hardness
up to 70 °d (73 gr/gal).
,Inadvertently filling the salt
container with dishwashing
detergent (including liquid
detergent) will damage the water
softener.
,Only use water softener salt
specially formulated for
dishwashers. Other salts may
contain insoluble additives which
can impair the water softener.
If using "Tab" products which
include salt, still add salt to the
machine to achieve optimal cleaning
results and ensure long-term
functioning of the water softener.
14
^ Remove the lower basket from the
wash cabinet and unscrew the salt
container lid.
When opening the salt container,
water will run out. Open the
container only to refill salt.
Important: The salt container must
be filled with 2 quarts (2 l) of water
before adding salt for the first time
so the salt can dissolve
properly. Water does not have to be
added with subsequent refills.
Before using for the first time
Refill salt message
^ As soon as the F Insufficient salt
message is displayed, refill the salt
container
^ Confirm with the center button.
The "Insufficient salt" message goes
out.
^ Place the provided funnel over the
salt container and carefully fill it with
salt. The salt container holds
approx. 4.4 lbs (2 kg) of salt,
depending on the type of salt.
^ Clean any excess salt from the
threads of the container opening.
Screw the lid on firmly.
^ Immediately after each refill, run the
"Rinse & Hold" program without a
load. This will remove any traces of
salt from inside the wash cabinet.
If a sufficiently high concentration of
salt has not yet formed, the Insufficient
salt message may continue to be
displayed after adding the salt. In this
case, confirm again with the center
button.
The Insufficient salt message is turned
off if you have programmed the
dishwasher to a water hardness below
4 °d (4 gr/gal).
If using "Tab" detergent products in
your dishwasher, the messages can
be turned off if desired (see
"Settings - Deactivate indicators").
If you switch to using detergent that
does not contain salt or rinse aid, it
is important to remember to
replenish the salt and rinse aid and
to turn the indicators back on.
15
Before using for the first time
Rinse aid
Rinse aid helps to prevent spotting on
dishes and glassware.
The rinse aid is filled in the reservoir
and the set amount will be
automatically dosed.
,Filling the rinse aid reservoir with
detergent (liquid or powder) will
damage the reservoir. Only pour
rinse aid formulated for residential
dishwashers into the reservoir.
When using "Tab" detergents rinse
aid is not needed.
Adding rinse aid
^ Pour liquid rinse aid into the reservoir
until it is visible on the surface of the
screen.
The rinse aid reservoir holds
approximately 3.7 fl. oz. (110 ml).
^ Press on the flap until you hear it
click shut. Failure to close it all the
way allows water to enter the
reservoir during the wash program.
^ Clean any spilled rinse aid. This
prevents over-foaming occurring
during the next program.
^ Press the button on the rinse aid
reservoir in the direction of the arrow
until the flap springs open.

– Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may be damp or spotted
at the end of a program where water
has adhered to the polish. This can
be rubbed off with a soft, dry cloth.

immersion dip is usually dry at the
end of a program, but may tarnish.
– If left to dry, foods containing sulfur
can discolor silver. These include
egg yolk, onions, mayonnaise,
mustard, fish and marinades.
– Silverware may tarnish or pit if
washed next to stainless steel.

fan will run for a few minutes after
the program is completed.
,If you have deactivated the auto-
matic door opening function (see

because the fan is no longer
running.
^ Unload the dishwasher.
Dishes tend to break and chip more
easily when they are hot.
Allow the dishes to cool until they are
comfortable enough to handle before
unloading them.
If you open the door fully after switching

home for an extended period of time,
please note that this may not be
enough to reduce the risk of a leak.
To be completely safe, you must
turn off the water supply to each
individual appliance. This means
under the sink for a dishwasher, at
the laundry bib for your washer, etc.
Use
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 where it was
interrupted.
,Water in the dishwasher is hot.
Danger of scalding.

used without all the filters in place.
Collection of coarse dirt may cause the
filters to clog. The level of soiling and
time it takes before the filters need
cleaning will vary depending on your
household use.
The message Check filters will appear
in the display after every 50 program
cycles (factory default setting).
The filter check frequency can be set
from 30 and 60 program cycles (see

Plumbing
Connection to the water supply
,Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous.
,Do not drink water from the
dishwasher!
– The dishwasher can heat its own water
to the temperature required by the
wash program. This allows for
connection of the machine to either a
hot (max. 140°F / 60°C) or cold water
source.
For lowest energy consumption you
may connect the dishwasher to a cold
water source.
For fastest possible wash times, with
slightly higher energy consumption,
connect the dishwasher to a hot water
source.
– To use the "Energy Saver" program, a
hot water connection of minimum
115°F / 45°C and maximum 140°F /
60°C (water intake temperature) is
necessary.
The higher the water intake
temperature, the better the cleaning
and drying results.
– The inlet hose is approximately 5 ft.
(1.5 m) long.
– The water inlet hose comes
equipped with an inlet hose ending
with a 3/8" female compression
fitting. This can be directly
connected to a water supply valve or
to an appropriate coupling.
64
If not connected directly to a water
supply valve, an appropriate
adapter (not included) is required.
– Water pressure: Must be between
4.5 - 145 psi (0.3 - 10 bar).
– If the water pressure if lower, a
"Water Intake" notification will be
shown. See "Frequently Asked
Questions" for more information.
– If the water pressure is higher than
shown, a pressure reducing valve
must be used.
Ensure that the water connection is
secure after the first use.
,To prevent damage to the
dishwasher, it must only be
connected to a fully vented drainage
system.
,Do not cut the intake hose. If the
hose is cut, the dishwasher will not
work. There will be a water leak. If
the hose is too long, coil it neatly
and place it behind or under the
machine.
Plumbing
Drainage
– The machine comes equipped with a
built-in non-return valve on the
discharge side to prevent waste
water from flowing back into the
dishwasher.
– The dishwasher is equipped with a
5 ft (1.5 m) flexible drain hose with an
internal diameter of 7/8" (22 mm).
– Drain hose extensions and adapters
can be ordered from Miele.
The maximum drain hose length is
13 ft. (4 m), max. drain height: 39"
(1 m).
– Use the clamp provided to attach the
hose to the dishwashers P trap or
disposal connection (see the
"Installation Diagram").
– The drain hose must not be
shortened.
,Make sure the hose is not kinked
or cut when pushing the machine
under the countertop.
Venting the drainage system
If the dishwasher drain hose is
connected to a floor drain or to a drain
pipe that is less than 8" (20 cm) above
the floor, the drain must be vented.
Otherwise the water inside the
dishwasher may siphon out during the
wash program.
^ Open the dishwasher door and
remove the lower basket.
^ Pull the lower spray arm firmly
upwards to remove.
The hose must always be attached
on the sink side of the P trap.
When attaching the hose to a
garbage disposal fitting, make sure
the plug which is normally blocking
the fitting is knocked out or
removed.
– The hose can be angled to the left or
right side at the rear of the machine.
– The existing nipple that the drain
hose is connected to may be
designed for various hose diameters.
If the nipple diameter is to large or to
small it should be replaced or an
adapter may be used. If the nipple
extends more than 2" (50 mm) into
the drain hose it should be
shortened, or the hose could clog.
^ Cut off the vent cap located at the
right rear of the triple filter system, as
illustrated.
65
Noise measurement
General requirements for measuring noise
The dishwasher must be loaded with 16 place settings and the Normal program
must be used.
Installation requirements for measuring noise
The dishwasher must be installed as follows:.
^ Install the dishwasher into an appropriate housing unit.
^ Secure the front panel.
66
Noise measurement
^ Push the insulation mat supplied (depending on model) under the plinth until it
