Installation and planning notes

Installation requirements
The machine should only be connected 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 washing machine must not be moved without the shipping struts
in place. Keep the struts in a safe place. They must be refitted if the
machine is to be moved again (e.g., when moving house).
General operating conditions
Ambient temperature in installation room: +36°F to +95°F (+2°C to
Depending on the nature of the installation site, sound emissions and
vibration may occur. Miele recommends having the installation site
inspected and seeking the advice of a professional in instances where
increased noise may cause a nuisance.
Electrical connection
Depending on the model, the machine will be delivered with a wire
with/without a plug.
The machine may only be connected to an electrical system that
conforms to national and local codes and regulations. This connection
must be made by a qualified electrician.
The data tag indicates the nominal power consumption and the
appropriate fuse rating. Compare the specifications on the data tag
with those of the electrical power supply.
The machine can either be hard-wired or connected using a plug-and-
socket connection in accordance with IEC 60309-1. Miele always
recommends connecting the machine via a plug and socket so that
electrical safety checks can be carried out easily (during repair or
service work, for example).
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 at
least 3 mm in the isolator switch (including circuit breakers, breakers,
and relays according to IEC/EN 60947).
The plug connector or isolator switch should be easily accessible at all
times. If the machine is disconnected from the electricity supply, the
isolator must be lockable or the point of disconnection must be
monitored at all times.
New connections, modifications to the system, or servicing of the
ground conductor, including determining the correct fuse rating, 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, follow the
instructions in the wiring diagram. Conversion must be performed
by Miele Technical Service or by an authorized service technician.
The heater rating must also be adapted.
The machine must not be connected to devices such as timers which
would switch it off automatically.
References to cable cross-sections in the technical data refer only to
the required power cord. Please consult relevant local and national
regulations when calculating any other wire gauges.

Cold water connection
The washing machine should be connected to a domestic water
supply in accordance with current local and national safety
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, the qualified plumber should connect the machine to the
domestic water supply.
A suitable connection hose with a threaded union is supplied with the
Longer hoses 8' 2 1/2" or 13' 1 1/2" (2.5 m or 4.0 m) in length are
available from Miele Technical Service or from your Miele dealer as
Hot water connection
The same connection requirements as for cold water also apply to hot
water (max. 158°F/70°C).
A suitable connection hose with a threaded union is supplied with the
The hot water connection appliance also requires a cold water
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
Drain valve (depending on model)
The machine is drained using a motorized drain valve. It can be
connected directly to the on-site drainage system (without a siphon) or
via a floor drain (gully with odor trap).
A vented drainage system is vital for unimpeded drainage. If on-site
venting is insufficient, a vent kit (mat. no. 05 239 540) is available from
your Miele dealer or Miele Technical Service.
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 suds are drained through a drain pump with a 1 m delivery head.
For the water to drain freely, the hose must be installed free of kinks.
Drainage options:
1. Connected securely to a plastic drain pipe with a rubber nipple
(there is no need to use a siphon).
2. Connected securely to a sink with a plastic nipple.
3. Connected securely to a floor drain.
