Installation and planning notes

Installation requirements
Electrical connection should only be made to a power supply provided
in accordance with all appropriate local and national legislation and
In addition, all regulations issued by the appropriate utilities as well as
standards relating to occupational safety, and all applicable valid
regulations and technical standards must be observed!
Transportation and site access
The machine must not be moved without the transit bars in place.
Keep the struts in a safe place. They must be re-fitted if the machine
is to be moved again (e.g. when relocating machine).
General operating conditions
Ambient temperature in installation room: +2°C to +35°C.
Depending on the nature of the installation site, sound emissions and
vibration may occur. Miele recommends consulting a specialist if
particular requirements apply at the installation site with respect to
sound emissions.
Electrical connection
Depending on the model, the machine is delivered with a supply lead
with/without a plug.
The washer may only be connected to an electrical system that
conforms to the national and local codes and regulations. The
installation must be performed by a qualified electrician.
The appliance data plate indicates the nominal power consumption
and the appropriate fuse capacity. Compare the specifications on the
data plate with those of the electrical power supply.
The machine can be hard-wired or connected using a switched
connection in accordance with IEC 60309-1. It is always
recommended to make electrical connection via a plug and socket so
that electrical safety checks, e.g. during repair or service work, can be
carried out easily.
If the machine is hard wired, a dual circuit breaker must be provided
on-site. When switched off there must be an all-pole contact gap of 3
mm in the isolator switch (including switch, fuses and relays according
to IEC/EN 60947).
The plug connectors or isolator switch should be easily accessible for
servicing work. 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.
New connections, modifications to the system or servicing of the
ground conductor, including determining the correct fuse amperage,
must be carried out by a qualified electrician, as they are familiar with
the pertinent regulations and the specific requirements of the electric
utility company.
If converting the machine to an alternative voltage, observe the
instructions in the wiring diagram. Conversion must be performed
by an authorised agent or a Miele service technician. The heater
rating must also be properly set.
The machine must be permanently connected to the electricity supply
so that the door can be opened. For this reason, it must not be
connected to devices such as timers which would switch it off
References to cable cross-sections in the technical data refer only to
the required supply lead. Please consult relevant local and national
regulations when calculating any other wire gauges.
Cold water connection
The machine should be connected to a mains water supply in
accordance with current local and national regulations on water
Connection to the water supply should be carried out by a qualified
plumber using a stopcock with a threaded union. If a stopcock is not
available, a qualified plumber should connect the machine to the
water supply.
A suitable connection hose with a threaded union is provided with the
Longer hoses (2.5 or 4.0 m in length) are available from Spares as
separate items.
Hot water connection
The same connection requirements as for cold water also apply to hot
water (max. 70°C).
A suitable connection hose with a threaded union is provided with the
The machine can be connected to a hot water supply of 70°C to max.
85°C. This requires the use of a separate heat-resistant inlet hose.
This additional hose must be obtained from Miele Spares. In addition,
the appliance must be programmed accordingly by Miele Customer
Service or an authorised agent.
Connection to hot water only is not possible for functional reasons.
In the event that hot water is not available on site, connection of the
second hose must be made to a cold water supply.
Alternatively, the hot water connection should be blocked using the
enclosed blind stopper and the machine controls set to cold water
The required amount of hot water should be added to the cold water
Machine connection (depending on model)
The washer-extractor is drained using a motorised drain valve. The
machine can be connected directly to the on-site drainage system
(without an odour trap) or via a floor drain (floor drain with odour trap).
A vented drainage system is vital for unimpeded drainage. If on-site
venting is insufficient, a vent kit (Mat. no. 05239540) is available from
Miele Spares or authorised dealers.
If several machines are connected to a single drain pipe, this should
be sufficiently large to allow all machines to drain simultaneously.
Drain pump (depending on model)
The machine drains through a pump with a 1 m delivery head. For the
water to drain freely, the hose must be free of kinks. The swivel elbow
at the end of the hose can be turned in either direction, or removed as
needed with a sharp twist and pull.
Drain hose connection:
1. Connected securely to a plastic drain pipe with a rubber sleeve.
There is no need for a U-pipe.
2. Connected to a sink using a plastic nipple.
3. Connected securely to a floor drain.
