Connection to the water
The machine should be connected to a
mains water supply in accordance with
local and national safety regulations.
The German authorities do not require it
to have a non-return valve as the
washing machine has been designed
to comply with DIN regulations.
The machine is designed to operate
with a flow pressure of between
100 kPa and 1,000 kPa. If it is higher
than 1,000 kPa it is essential to fit a
pressure reducing valve.
Connection to the mains water supply
should incorporate a mains stopcock
" thread. The stopcock should
be fitted by a qualified plumber.
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 union if appropriate.
The washing machine is not suitable
for connection to a hot water supply
and connection to a household
water softener is not recommended.
Maintenance and care
Only use a genuine Miele hose should
you ever need a replacement or
extension. These are tested to

Installation and connection
In order to protect the water inlet
valve, the two dirt filters - one in the
open end of the inlet hose, one at
the inlet point in the machine - must
not be removed.
– Longer hoses 2.5 or 4.0 m in length
are available from your Miele dealer
or the Miele Spare Parts Department
as optional extras.
