4.18.3 Control Valve
Refer to figure 4-15…
The Miele Circulation Condenser Drying System consists of a Steam
Condenser (Item 4), with Circulation Fan. The Steam Condenser
contains a Cold Water Reservoir over which an air duct passes and
moist air from the cabinet is passed through this air duct. The cold
water and the air duct are separated by a 0.5 mm thick membrane
which provides the condensing surface. The Fan (Item 2), takes in
moist air from the top of the cabinet (Item 5), and passes it over the
condensing surface where it is cooled then blows it back into the
cabinet via the opening in the lower area of the Side Panel (Item 3).
The water vapor that is condensed out during cooling flows down and
enters the cabinet via the opening in the lower area of the Side Panel.
Some vapor may condense out in the Fan and this flows out via a hole
in the bottom of the Fan Housing to the Drip Tray where it evaporates
1 Soft water from Water Softener
2 Soft water to Water Mixer
3 Soft water to Condenser Module

Refer to figure 4-16.
No voltage applied to Control Valve Y6
The path between positions 1 and 3 is always open so during every
water intake the Cold Water Reservoir in the Steam Condenser is filled
with water from the Water Softener. If the Reservoir is full, excess
water overflows at its top edge and flows down then enters the cabinet
via the opening in the lower area of the Side Panel.
Voltage applied to Control Valve Y6
If voltage is applied to the Control Valve during water intake stages,
the path between 1 and 2 is also open (this is marked with +K in the
Program Timing Chart). In this way soft water flows to the Water Mixer
and then into the cabinet.
