Miele Dishwashers User Guide

These short instructions are not a substitute for the operating instructions supplied with the machine. It is essential to familiarise yourself with the dishwasher before using it for the first time. Take note of the Warning and Safety instructions, as well as the full descriptions on how to use your appliance.

Brief instructions

  1. AutoDos (automatic dispensing)
  2. Detergent compartment
  3. Rinse aid reservoir
  4. Salt reservoir
  5. Filter combination

1. Filling the salt reservoir

  • Remove the lower basket from the wash cabinet and unscrew the salt reservoir cap.

  Damage to the water softener from detergents.
Dishwasher detergent will damage the water softener.
Do not fill the salt reservoir with powder or liquid detergent.

Risk of corrosion due to saline solution.
Water or saline solution will run out of the reservoir when the cap is opened. Saline solution that runs out can cause corrosion in the wash cabinet and to the dishwasher load.
The salt reservoir should therefore only be opened to replenish the salt.

  • Fill the salt reservoir with approx. 2 l of water (first use only).
  • Place the funnel provided over the salt reservoir and carefully fill with dishwasher salt until the reservoir is full.
  • Clean any excess salt from around the reservoir opening and then screw the salt reservoir cap on again firmly.

2. Adding rinse aid

  • Lift the yellow catch on the lid of the rinse aid container .
  • Only fill with rinse aid until the fill level indicator (see arrow) turns dark when the door is open horizontally.
  • Close the lid making sure it clicks into place.
  • Wipe up any spilled rinse aid. This prevents over-foaming occurring during the next programme.

3. Loading the dishwasher
4. Detergent dispensing

There are two ways of dispensing the detergent. During automatic dispensing, the Auto Dos function will automatically dispense the required amount of detergent for each programme once a Power Disk has been inserted. If you have deactivated automatic dispensing, you can dispense detergent manually.

Automatic detergent dispensing
Before you can use Auto Dos, you must insert a Power Disk containing powder detergent into the Power Disk compartment.

  • Slide the yellow catch of the AutoDos lid to and open it.
  • Before you use Auto Dos for the first time, remove the transport lock from the Power Disk compartment.

  • If the arrows in the Power Disk holder and in the viewing window are not pointing towards each other, remove the Power Disk holder.
  • Put the holder back into place so that the arrows point towards each other and the holder lies flat. When doing this, only hold the Power Disk holder by the yellow tab in the middle. Do not hold it by the side tab.
  • Insert the new Power Disk and press it evenly downwards until it sits flush.
  • Close the Auto Dos lid and slide the yellow catch until it is aligned with the symbol.

The AutoDos function will be activated automatically.

This setting applies to all programmes and can be changed in a programme’s “Extras” menu.

If the Power Disk is not in the correct starting position, it will be rotated automatically.

Wait until this process is finished before you start a programme.

This setting applies to all programmes and can be changed in a programme’s “Extras” menu.

Manual detergent dispensing
Dispense detergent manually if you have deactivated automatic dispensing.

  • Follow the detergent dosage recommended by the manufacturer on the packaging.
  • Unless directed otherwise, use one detergent tab or add 20 to 30 ml of detergent to the detergent compartment, depending on the degree of soiling of the crockery.
  • Lift the yellow catch on the lid of the detergent compartment .

The lid will open.

  • Fill the detergent compartment with detergent and push the lid shut until you hear it click into place.

5. Switching on

  • Close the door.
  • Turn on the tap if it is turned off.
  • Touch the sensor.

The “Programmes” menu will appear in the display.

6. Selecting a programme

  • Select the required programme in the display.
  • The display will change to the “Extras” menu.

7. Selecting Extras (if required)
All available Extras are shown in the display.

  • Select the Extras you want.
  • If you want to cancel the selection of an Extra, touch the sensor for the Extra again.

8. Activating the timer (if required)

  • Touch the Timer option in the display.
  • Select the function you want.
  • Set the time you want for the timer and confirm with OK.

9. Starting a programme

  • Touch the Start sensor.

10. Programme end – Switching off

The signal tones may sound at the end of the programme.

The programme has finished when the message Finished appears in the display and the door has opened slightly (if applicable).

The drying fan may continue to run for a few minutes at the end of the programme.

  • The dishwasher can be switched off at any time using the sensor.
  • Confirm the query Switch appliance off? with Yes.

Risk of damage due to steam. Steam from the dishwasher could damage the edges of delicate worktops when you open the door at the end of the programme if the fan is no longer running.

If you have deactivated the automatic door opening function but would still like to open the door at the end of the programme, make sure that you open the door fully.

11. Unloading the dishwasher
Dishes tend to break and chip more easily when they are hot. Allow the dishes to cool until they are comfortable enough to handle before unloading them.

Cleaning and care

Cleaning the spray arms
Particles of food can get stuck in the spray arm jets and bearings. The spray arms should therefore be inspected regularly (approx. every 2–4 months).

Do not run a wash programme without the lower spray arm or without the filters fitted.

  • Switch the dishwasher off.
  • Take out the cutlery tray (if your dishwasher is fitted with one).
  • Push the upper spray arm upwards to engage the inner ratchet. Then unscrew the spray arm by rotating the screw thread anti-clockwise (overhead perspective).

  • Rotate the screw thread of the middle spray arm clockwise (1) (see diagram) and remove the spray arm (2).
  • Remove the lower basket.

  • Rotate the screw thread of the lower spray arm anti-clockwise (1) and pull the spray arm upwards to remove (2).
  • Use a pointed object to push food particles stuck in the jets into the spray arm.
  • Rinse the spray arm thoroughly under running water.
  • Refit the upper and middle spray arms.
  • Refit the lower spray arm and ensure that the filter combination lies flat in the base of the wash cabinet.
  • Rotate the screw thread of the lower spray arm clockwise until the arrow in the viewing window points (3) to the lock symbol .
  • Make sure the spray arms can rotate freely.

Checking the filters in the wash cabinet

Do not run a wash programme without the filters or without the lower spray arm fitted.

The message Remove filters and clean them if necessary will appear in the display after every 50 programme sequences.

  • Monitor the condition of the filter combination regularly and clean it if necessary.
  • Confirm the message with OK.

Cleaning the filters

  • Switch the dishwasher off.
  • Remove the lower spray arm.
  • Before removing the filter combination, remove any coarse soiling to prevent it from entering the circulation system.

  • Remove the filter combination.

  • In order to clean the inside of the filter, pull the micro filter downwards and away from the filter combination.
  • Rinse all the parts under running water.
  • Push the micro filter back onto the filter combination.
  • Refit the filter combination so that it lies flat in the base of the wash cabinet.
  • Refit the lower spray arm to the filter combination using the screw thread.
  • Rotate the screw thread clockwise until the arrow in the viewing window points to the lock symbol
