Connection to the water supply

The washing machine should be con-
nected to a mains water supply in ac-
cordance with current local and national
safety regulations. The German author-
ities do not require it to have a non-re-
turn valve as the washing machine has
been designed to comply with DIN reg-
The flow pressure must amount to a
minimum of 100 kPa (1 bar) and must
not exceed an overpressure of
1000 kPa (10 bar). If it is higher than
1000 kPa (10 bar), a pressure reduction
valve must be installed.
Connection to the mains water supply
should incorporate a stopcock with a
¾" threaded union. If this is not avail-
able, only a qualified installer may con-
nect the washing machine to the mains
water supply.
The connection point is subject to
mains water pressure.
Turn on the stopcock slowly and
check for leaks. Correct the position
of the washer and the threaded
union if necessary.
The washing machine is not suitable
for connection to a hot water supply.
The washing machine must not be
connected to a hot water supply.
Installation and connection
Only use a genuine Miele hose that has
been pressure tested to withstand at
least 7,000 kPa should you ever need a
Damage caused by dirty water.
A filter is located in the open end of
the inlet hose and another in the in-
take point to protect the inlet valve in
the washing machine.
These filters must not be removed.
Hose extension
Longer hoses 2.5 or 4.0 m in length are
available from your Miele Dealer or
Miele as optional extras.
