    Built to last

    Because Miele’s appliances are tested for the equivalent of 20 years’ use, you can trust that you’re getting a durable and reliable machine. Every product is put through its paces, making sure it can wash for 10,000 hours – that’s 5 washes per week for 20 years. So you know you’re getting an appliance that’s truly designed to last.

    Protects clothes from snagging

    Miele's honeycomb drum provides the gentlest care for your fabrics. The smooth sculpted surface creates a fine film of water during the cycle which cushions clothes, allowing them to glide effortlessly. The honeycomb design has smaller holes compared to a standard drum too, so your outfits won’t get caught or tangled.

    Every fabric gets specialist care

    Even if your fabrics need specialist treatment, Miele’s CapDosing system gives your outfits the best care. Whether you’re washing your gym gear, woolly jumpers or silk shirts, simply choose a Miele capsule to match the load. These capsules contain the exact amount of specialist detergent, fabric softener or booster, needed to look after the fabrics. And, because they’re released into the drum at the perfect time, they’ll always give perfect results.

    Pause the programme anytime

    If the programme has already started and you’ve forgotten to pop something in the wash, the AddLoad function lets you pause the cycle and add that stray sock or shirt, so you won’t have to wait to get them clean. This also means you can remove items, like that hand-wash silk shirt you accidentally left in the basket.

    As quiet as a whisper

    This model has a special motor inside which is not only long-lasting, but really quiet too. Because it uses frictionless magnets instead of brushes, noise is greatly reduced when the machine is running and it’s so quiet, you’ll barely notice it’s there. So, it’s perfect for open plan living.

    Measuring up tips

    This is a freestanding washing machine, so it won’t fit behind an integrated kitchen cupboard door. Just make sure you measure the space where you want the washing machine to live and add 7cm onto the depth to make sure there’s enough space for the pipes needed to connect the appliance.

    Great washing machine

    As always a great product from Miele, had last washing machine for 12 years it’s still working but wanted a new one to go in my renovated kitchen.
    Sharron Mills

    Repalcment Miele

    This was a replacement for an existing Miele machine that was over 20 years old. To be honest a bit disappointed with the new machine as a lot has changed in 20 years and some of these changes seem like a downgrade in quality and the new machine will no way last the same amount of time. Firstly there is a lot more plastic everywhere and the door is now plastic and the door lock is electronically controlled. A lot of program options use the touchscreen in addition to the dial and no touchscreen will last that long. Miele’s own warranty is now only 2 years. The machine itself is now bigger than before and the drum protrudes in a pointed heart like shape at the bottom where pipes use to run on the old machines, therefore meaning it sticks out a lot more if fitted under a standard 60cm worktop. The 1.5m drainage hose has also been moved to the top of the machine which means if you want to install to an outlet to the right of the machine then you may need an extension to the hoses. Miele wanted £50 to extend the hose as it was a little short. The machine is fairly heavy in weight and has a very low clearance underneath, as the base is solid and close to the ground, meaning it kept bottoming out when trying to install into a narrow gap. Once installed it is fairly solid providing the floor is reasonably level. From a performance aspect it has a variety of programs and an option to shorten the length of these so a typical standard wash can be done in about 90 minutes (15 minutes waiting for door release). It also has a quick wash of 20 minutes (plus door release wait). The door lock can be overridden and unlocked by ending the program by turning the dial to off. The spin cycles are moderately loud but the noise from the drainage pump when emptying is very loud and fairly bad and resonates throughout the whole house. Clothes also seem to be damper at the end of a cycle than they were with the old machine. The machine’s door is hinged on the right and Miele are the only manufacturer that have this set-up. If you’ve never owned a Miele before then you probably would find it an acceptable upgrade as compared to some of the other manufacturers. If you’re already a Miele owner then you might want to consider one of other models but they are a lot more expensive.

    Solid machine: washes well

    My previous Miele Novotronic lasted over 20 years (RIP!). I may have had an engineer out once for it. It was a gem! This one: more limited in options for altering temperature for any programme. It offers 2 temperatures for some programmes. Therefore 4 stars rather than 5. Washes well and very quiet. Spin is excellent. I find digital controls a faff (specs, small print, digital panel, squeaks and squawks!); would much rather have knobs (Novotronic had them). I have only had this one a week, so am still finding my way with it. Chose this rather than another well-known German make because that make had a review saying that the soap dispenser was a bit flimsy. And because of previous Miele washing machine lasting and washing so well. This model seems to be the basic Miele. The more fancy ones have even fancier digital controls and more programmes. In the end I simply want a reliable washing machine to last (hopefully) to avoid sending a shorter-lived machine to land-fill.

    Great options and really quiet

    The machine is really quiet and great to have so many options and settings for different washes

    • Connection

      We want you to get up and running straight away with your new appliance, which is why our expert team will connect your new item to your water pipes and make sure everything is working properly. Connecting it yourself? Make sure you remove the transit bolts. These will make a loud rattling sound if they’re left in place when you run a cycle. 

    • Remove & Recycle

      If you’ve bought a new appliance but you don’t want us to connect it for you, all you’ll need to do is disconnect your old one and empty it, ready for us to pick up.

      If you haven’t bought a new appliance, we can still collect your old one and take it away for recycling. Our experts will recycle it safely and responsibly in our state-of-the-art facility.

      The cost of our Remove & Recycle service goes towards safely transporting the product to our recycling plant. Under the WEEE regulations, recycling costs are primarily covered by the product manufacturer.

      Also, while we’re picking up your appliance, if you’ve got any smaller kitchen electricals that need recycling – such as kettles, toasters or blenders – we’ll happily take those away too at no extra charge. Just pass them to your driver when we’re picking up your larger appliance.

    • Disconnection

      We’ll disconnect your old freestanding appliance when we deliver your new one

      • This includes the tricky job of disconnecting it from your water pipes

      Make delivery even easier by selecting all three connection and disconnection services in the basket. In one trip we can:

      • Disconnect and recycle your old appliance
      • Safely install your new one

      Just a quick note: if you’re buying a freestanding appliance to replace an old integrated one, we won’t be able to disconnect it

    • Unpack

      Appliances come with quite a bit of bulky packaging. We’ll unpack your item, let you inspect it then take away all of the plastic wrap and foam packaging.
