Cleaning and care

the Miele UK Spare Parts Department
or via the internet on,
which is suitable for cleaning surfaces
such as stainless steel, glass, plastic
and chrome without the use of
chemicals. It can be washed 300 times.

Extra cleaning

Carry out a hot wash (70°C or above)
with powder detergent approx. every 6
weeks to help prevent deposits building
up in the machine. These can occur
when washing is mainly done at low
temperatures, and also lead to
unpleasant smells. If you have no
reason to wash occasionally at this high
temperature, then run a Cottons 95°C
programme with detergent but no
laundry at regular intervals.
Cleaning the detergent
dispenser drawer
Remove detergent residues regularly.
^ Pull out the detergent dispenser
drawer until a resistance is felt. Press
down the release catch and at the
same time pull the drawer right out of
the machine.
^ Clean the detergent drawer with
warm water.
