~ The installation of this unit in non
stationary locations (e.g. ships) must be
performed by a qualified installer or
service agency, in strict accordance
with national and local safety
regulations and standards.
~ Be certain this appliance is properly
installed and grounded by an
authorized technician. For electrical
safety this machine must be grounded
z. It is imperative that this basic safety
requirement be tested by a qualified
electrician. Consult a qualified

5
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Correct use
~ The ducting must not be connected
~ Do not let anyone sit or lean on the
doors, as this can cause the dryer to
tip. Danger of injury.
to
~ Always close the door after loading
or unloading the dryer, to prevent:
– or to ducting which ventilates rooms
with fireplaces,
– children from climbing into the dryer,
or hiding small items in the dryer.
– or to chimneys being used by other
appliances.
– small animals from climbing into the
dryer.
Smoke or exhaust fumes can cause
poisoning.
~ Empty all pockets so that no
flammable items such as lighters,
matches, candles and cosmetics end
up in the dryer.
~ Check all parts of the extraction
system on a regular basis (e.g. wall
vent, external grille, bends in the
ducting etc.) and make sure they are all
free of any hindrance. A build-up of lint
will prevent a free flow of air through the
system. If the appliance is to be
connected to an existing ducting
system, this must be checked for
suitability beforehand.
~ Always make sure the drum is
stationary before reaching in to remove
laundry. Never put your hand into a
drum that is still moving.
~ Take care not to pinch or cut your
fingers on the hinges of the drum door
or lint flap. Use the handles.
~ The area necessary to open the
drum door completely must not be
obstructed by doors or other structures.
~ Do not use a power washer to clean
the dryer.
~ Keep the area around the exhaust
opening (toekick) and adjacent
surrounding areas free of lint, dust and
dirt.
~ Operate the dryer only if an exhaust
air duct is connected and the room is
adequately ventilated.
6
– a chimney or vent flue which is in
use,
~ Do not operate the dryer in a room
where cleaning machines operate with
solvents containing CFC. Vapors from
combustion turn into hydrochloric acid
which damages laundry and dryer.
When operated in a separate room,
there must be no air exchange
possible. Make sure the dryer is
supplied with clean fresh air only.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
~ Adequate ventilation is essential to
avoid the danger of asphyxia and toxic
fumes where another appliance which
also uses the room air (e.g. gas, oil or
coal fired heater, continuous flow or
other water heater) is installed in the
same or an adjacent room.
To ensure safe operation, and to
prevent gases given off by these
appliances being drawn back into the
room, an underpressure of 4 Pa is the
maximum permissible.
Ventilation can be maintained by:
– air inlets in the external wall which
cannot be closed or blocked, or
– by fitting a window contact switch
which ensures that the appliance
can only be operated when the
window is open.
If in doubt, contact Miele Technical Service.
~ The dryer must not be used without
the lint filters in place or if the lint filters
are damaged in any way. Damaged
filters can cause operational faults and
blockages in the airways, the heating
elements and in the ducting.
Fire hazard!
In the event of a damaged filter, turn
the appliance off and replace the filter
with a new one.
~ Do not install the tumble dryer stack
in a room where there is a risk of frost
occurring. At temperatures around
freezing point the appliance may not be
able to operate properly.
The ambient room temperature should
be between +36°F (2°C) and +122°F
(50°C).
~ The appliance is not intended for
outdoor use.
~ When installing multiple dryers to
one collective exhaust duct, a
non-return flap per dryer must be
installed directly to the collective duct.
Otherwise the dryers could be
damaged and the electrical safety
affected.
~ A build-up of lint will block the
airflow, heating and ventilation, which
will impair the efficiency of the dryer. Be
sure to clean the lint filter before or after
each load.
~ Do not use the dryer without the
built-in lint filter in place. Fire hazard!
If the lint filter is damaged it must be
replaced immediately.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
following textiles must not be dried in
this appliance:
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
following articles or items must not be
dried in this dryer:
– items which have not been washed.
– items which have been cleaned
using chemicals (e.g. professional
dry-cleaning agents).
– items, such as workwear, which have
not been thoroughly cleaned and
which are still soiled with grease, oil
or other substances (such as
cosmetics, lotions etc).
If items have not been thoroughly
cleaned there is a danger that these
might ignite when heated, even after
they have been removed from the
dryer at the end of the program.
– items that have been previously
cleaned, washed, soaked or spotted
with gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents,
wax, wax remover, chemicals for
buffing (e.g. mops and floor cloths)
or other flammable or explosive
substances. They may give off
vapors that could ignite or explode.
– items which have been spattered
with hair spray, nail polish remover or
similar substances.
~ When washing such heavily soiled
items ensure that you use sufficient
detergent and select a high
temperature. If in doubt, wash the items
several times.
8
– fabrics which contain a large amount
of rubber, foam rubber or rubber-like
materials. For example, products
made from latex, shower caps,
waterproof textiles, rubberized
articles, and items of clothing and
pillows with foam rubber filling, or
similarly textured rubber-like
materials.
– which contain padding or fillings
(e.g. pillows, jackets). If these were
damaged the filling could get out
with the risk of igniting in the dryer.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
~ With sensitive fabrics there may be
a danger of them spontaneously
combusting if dried too long. Immediately remove the laundry at the end of
the drying program and after a power
failure.
Keep a fire extinguisher near the dryer.
The laundry must not be removed from
the dryer until the cooling down phase
has been completed.
If hot laundry items are stacked or
packed they could spontaneously
combust.
~ Warning: Do not switch the
appliance off before the end of the
drying program. If this was done and
the laundry was then removed immediately it could give off a great amount of
heat.
~ Fabric softrner and similar products
must be used according to the
instructions on the manufacturer's
packaging.
~ Never use or store gasoline,
petroleum-based substances or other
easily flammable substances near the
machine. Fire and explosion hazard!
~ Do not allow air contaminated with
chlorine, fluorine or other vapors
containing solvents to get into the
dryer. Fire hazard.
~ Disinfection and cleaning agents
often contain chlorine compounds. If
these agents dry on stainless steel it
will cause it to rust. To protect the dryer
use only chlorine-free disinfection and
cleaning agents for laundering and
disinfecting, and for cleaning the
stainless steel surfaces. If in doubt
about a cleaning agent, contact the
manufacturer.
Aggressive vapors containing chlorine
can also be corrosive. Do not store
containers of these agents near the
appliance.
~ Remove the door to the drying
compartment before the appliance is
removed for service or discarded
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele original
spare parts and accessories with this
appliance. If spare parts or accessories
from other manufacturers are used, this
will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
Disposing of your old machine
~ Before disposing of an old machine
it is important to disable the door lock.
This way you will prevent the risk of
children accidentally locking
themselves in and endangering their
lives.

be washed and dried separately
from light-colored garments the first
few times they are washed, to avoid
the risk of colors running and
discoloring other garments or even
the plastic components in the tumble
dryer.
Dark-colored fibers can also settle on
light-colored garments and vice
versa.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– Check the seams of padded or
down-filled items to prevent the risk
of fillings coming out. These could
catch fire in the tumble dryer.
– Tie together textile belts and apron
ties to stop them getting tangled.
– Fasten . . .
. . . duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being trapped
inside them. . ., hooks and eyes etc.
– Stitch in or remove loose underwire
from bras.
– Leave jackets open and undo any
long zips so that textiles dry evenly.
– For an even drying result, it is
important to . . .
. . . spin,
. . . shake out,
. . . and sort items according to
fabric type, size, care label and the
drying level required.
Tips
2. Load the tumble dryer
,Using the tumble dryer
incorrectly could cause a fire. Read
the "Warning and Safety instructions"
before using the tumble dryer.
,Make sure that objects, e.g.
detergent dispensing balls, have
been removed from the laundry.
They could melt and cause damage
to the dryer or the laundry.
– Do not overload the drum.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry, give a
disappointing drying result and
cause more creasing.
– To save energy, always observe the
maximum load for each program
(see the separate booklet
"Commissioning, Program chart and
Settings").
– Minimum iron fabrics tend to crease
more the greater the load. This is
also the case for garments made
from very fine weave fabrics, such as
shirts or blouses.
If necessary, reduce the size of the
load for these types of fabrics.
3. Select a program
– On many programs, different drying
levels can be selected depending on
individual requirements. . .
e.g.Normal+ for laundry that you
want to fold and put away immediately after drying.
. . . e.g. Machine iron or Hand iron if
the laundry needs further processing
after drying, e.g. machine ironing.
See separate booklet
"Commissioning, Program chart and
Settings".
– For delicate fabrics with the r care
label, select Low temperature as
well.
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Smoothing program.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label, as
the surface of the fabric may
otherwise become rough. They can
be partially dried using the
Smoothing program.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. Only dry these
fabrics in a Woollens program.
– Loop knit materials tend to shrink.
Over-drying increases this effect. Do
not use the highest dry program for
such fabrics.

Quick Guide
Program duration/Estimated time
remaining
When a program is selected, the
estimated duration will appear in the
display. Please be aware that it is only
an estimate!
The following factors all affect the
estimated time remaining: residual
moisture content after spinning; type of
fabric; size of load; room temperature;
fluctuations in power supply.
The electronics assess conditions in the
appliance and adjust the estimated
time remaining for a more accurate
reading. Because of this, the time
displayed can alter during the course of
a program.
Before the end of a program
e Remove the laundry when the
program has finished
,The laundry must not be
removed from the dryer before the
drying program has finished. The
cooling down phase must be
completed.
If hot laundry items are stacked or
packed they could spontaneously
combust.
Anti-crease (if selected) and Finish will
appear in the display to indicate that
the program has finished.
During the anti-crease phase the drum
will continue to turn at intervals until the
laundry is removed. This helps to
prevent laundry creasing.
In many programs the heating phase is
followed by the cooling down phase:
Cooling down will appear in the display.
The program is not finished until the
cooling down phase has been
completed.
Do not switch the tumble dryer off
before the drying program has
finished.
^ Open the door.
18
Quick Guide
^ Remove everything from the drum.
Check that all items have been
removed from the drum. If items are

The drum lighting will come on when
the door is opened. It will go out a few
minutes later to save energy.
^ Switch the dryer off by pressing the
On-Off K button.

than 3 mm are suitable for isolating the
machine. These include circuit
breakers, fuses and relays.
Should the connection cable require
replacing or changes be necessary in
the electrical installation including
checking and/or replacing the fuse
please make sure this is done by an
approved electrician to ensure
compliance with all local and national
electrical safety requirements.
For extra safety, it is advisable to
protect the machine with a suitable
residual current device (RCD) with a
trip current of 30 mA.
,This machine must be
connected to a permanent electricity
supply so that the door can always
be opened. For this reason it must
not be connected to devices such
as timers which would switch it off
automatically.
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE
MUST BE GROUNDED
,If the machine is disconnected
from the electricity supply ensure
adequate measures are taken to
ensure that the machine cannot be
reconnected to the electricity supply
until all work has been carried out.

Installation - extraction ducting
General
Ventilation can be maintained by:
,The dryer must only run if the
– an open window,
moist exhaust air from the drying
process is conducted outside by an
installed exhaust duct vent.
– air inlets in the external wall of a
minimum of 59 ft.2 (150 cm2) which
cannot be closed or blocked, or
,Disconnect the dryer from the
power supply during installation of
the exhaust duct.
The dryer must be disconnected from
the mains electricity supply while the
ducting system is installed.
The venting outlet (e.g. in a wall) should
be installed in such a way that the moist
expelled air:
. . .cannot be drawn back into the room
in which the dryer is installed;
. . . cannot cause any damage to the
building or other nuisance.
,The room air, which is taken in
when the dryer is in operation, is
blown out via the exhaust vent. It is
important, particularly if the room is
small, to ensure adequate ventilation
and air supply opening a window or
installing unlockable ventilation
openings in the wall., for example,
will allow more air to enter the room.
Otherwise drying times and energy
consumption may increase.
Danger of suffocation by suction of
exhaust fumes.
46
– a window switch which prevents the
dryer being used when the window is
closed.
Avoid:
– very long ducting systems.
– too many tight bends or corners.
Otherwise the drying result will be less
effective, and it will take longer and use
more energy.
Suitable materials
– for the ventilation ducting:
flexible ducting* or plastic piping
with a diameter of at least 4"
(100 mm).
– for venting to the outside:
a wall vent kit* or a window vent kit*.
(* optional extras)
Installation - extraction ducting
To calculate the total duct
length
Friction against the inner walls of the
vent ducting will slow down the
expelled air as it passes through the
ducting. An elbow, bend, non-return
flap or wall vent creates more friction
than a straight duct. The friction
created by each of these is expressed
as an additional duct length factor.
The additional duct length factors are
calculated by comparing the friction
created by, for example, an elbow to
that created by 3' 3" (1 meter) of
straight plastic piping (see Table 1).
The additional duct length factor for
each item needs to be added together
to ascertain the total duct length which
will be needed for the venting system.
The total duct length is a means of
calculating the friction created by the
venting system as a whole.
A larger internal duct diameter also
helps reduce friction. If the total duct
length is more than 65' 7" (20 m), the
duct diameter should be increased
(see Table II).
Procedure
1. First measure the distance requiring
straight ducting. Multiply this amount
by the corresponding additional
length factor in Table I.
2. Establish the number of angles,
bends etc., and add their additional
length factors together with the help
of Table I.
4. Refer to Table II for the appropriate
duct diameter required.

Help protect the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The cardboard box and packing
materials protect the appliance during
shipping. They are environmentally
friendly for disposal and can be
recycled.
To prevent suffocation of children
ensure that any plastic wrapping, bags,
etc. are disposed of safely and kept out
of the reach of children.
Please recycle.
Disposal of an old appliance
Old appliances may contain materials
that can be recycled. Please contact
your local recycling authority about the
possibility of recycling these materials.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal. Before discarding an old
appliance, unplug it from the outlet, cut
off its power cord and remove any
doors to prevent hazards.
Energy saving tips
To avoid unnecessarily long drying
times and high consumption of energy:
– Make sure that your laundry is
thoroughly spun before drying.
The higher the spin speed, the
greater the savings that can be
made in energy and time during
drying.
– Load according to the optimum
amount of laundry recommended for
the program being used.
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives a poorer quality of
drying, and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
– Make sure the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
– Clean the lint filter as necessary (see
"Cleaning and Care").
– Check all parts of the ventilation
system on a regular basis, and
remove any build-up of lint etc.
The vent ducting should be as short,
straight and smooth as possible to
minimize any resistance to the air
throughflow.
