Our Recommendations

At the very core of Miele's technical and production competencies are washing machines. Having more experience than almost any other appliance company on the planet, Miele has taken the washing machine in Europe, and around the world, to the highest level of durability, reliability and convenience while always remembering the product's potential impact on their cherished natural resources.

Miele products are truly built to last. The company is committed to its "vertical integration" philosophy, which means Miele directly oversees the production and quality control on nearly all components used in every machine, from metal stamping and enameling to circuit boards and relays.

For generations, Miele washing machines have been known for their thorough yet gentle care of fabrics. Miele's revolutionary Honeycomb Care washing drum advances this technology even further. Forged from the very best stainless steel with a unique convex pattern that resembles a honeycomb, Miele's Honeycomb Drum both enhances cleaning performance and reduces fabric wear.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I now hunt for laundry to do It was so worth the extra dollars!! The quality of this machine is in a class by itself. There are no unnecessary features. Very high-tech with a common sense approach. The clothes are so incredibly clean, I am saving on bleach as it is not longer necessary to use. I've never been more pleased with an appliance purchase. This machine was built to hold up under heavy use. 8/7/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far very pleased,switched from Asko For comparison I owned a top end Asko 20605 for last 8 years. Its on it third motor [every two years],replaced entire electronic control panel and now the door hinge is coming loose and requires disassembling nearly the entire machine to get to the two loose nuts. Also makes a hell of a racket a full spin,never gets in good balance and walks around so I am always pushing it back to its corner. No more Swedish junk! This new MIELE so far is wonderful. It is a bigger machine than the ASKO and heavier so at full spin you hardly know its running and very quiet. Nice big door, sturdy solid feel to everything,the soap tray even comes completely out for cleaning. The ASKO did not and had a hose attached at the back and always felt like it was tugging the tray back-annoying! The new honeycomb drum was very smooth from the factory and the drain holes are smaller than my last machine which should be a good thing for fabrics. So far so good, time will tell about the machinery and electronics. One point about the control panel though. Its upward face is great for viewing but the buttons are not sealed in the panel face.The small gap around them would seem to be debris/soap catchers, hope it is sealed well behind and easy to dissaemble to clean off after an accident or build up over time. At first blush I'm very pleased with this washer,hope it lasts. 12/11/07
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Washer We've had the washer about a months now and really like it. It has even gotten all the nasty smell from the old moldy Maytag out of our clothes! Great machine -- go for it. 10/6/09
