Miele Brand General Opinions for Washer and Dryers
by Never again
I would NEVER purchase or recommend Miele washers - unless you want to spend over two hours washing a SINGLE load of laundry and spend the other half of your time waiting for the repair person once the warranty is up (computer problems and leaks).
I purchased the top of the line machines from my architect during a kitchen/laundry remodel and addition. He raved about them and since I have always had good luck with his recommendations in the past, I went with the $3,500 package (w/d).
I HATE them... there are just two people in my family and I spend at least two or three evenings a week doing laundry since the washer is SO SLOW!! If they had not cost so much I would drag them to the curb and go back to my Kitchenaids that never needed repair during their lifetime.
Also, if you happen to put anything with a slight bit of color in with light clothes, EVERYTHING takes on the "color" since there is so little water to dilute the bleed. Now my whites have pale green tinge from a very pale turquoise tee shirt.
If you value your time keep shopping!
