+ Logically constructed so it was easy to repair. Steel balast instead of concrete.
- Should get more than 7-8 years from a brush??
Purchased at: David Jones
+ Quiet and reliable.
Purchased at: Harvey Norman
+ This machine washes clothes very well; my clothes are definitely clean. I like the honeycomb care system of this washing machine. The system looks after the fabric of the clothes in a sense that it does not damage the fabric, the system is gentle on the clothes, yet cleanses very well. The machine is quiet too. It doesn't require much laundry detergent to wash a load which is very good because I save a lot when it comes to buying detergent powder. I love the different cycle depending on the type of clothes' fabric. This machine has the energy rating of 4 stars, thus I got a rebate from the government for purchasing this machine.
- I am not sure if this only happens to the unit that I bought or if this is common to this model... There were several instances when the machine just stopped working that I had to turn the machine off and on again to resume its function. My unit was repaired once by the agent. The electronic board was replaced. The problem became worse that it totally stopped working 3 months after the warranty expired.

+ clothes come out clean. doesn't ruin the fabric. the buzzer to alert me when finishes (cuz it's so quiet I sometimes forget). timer - love the timer.
- bit pricey.
+ This machine was my first front loader and is simplicity in design. A couple of button presses and you're guarenteed a perfect wash in 40 minutes with sparkling whites and unwrinkled well spun clothes that dry quickly on the line, even in winter.

Easy to use
Cleans clothes really well
Lots of functions
Does a normal load in 40 minutes and you can open the door until it's at the end of its wash cycle.
- Wish it was a bit bigger, but I think it holds more than the 5 kilos it says.

Sorry to hear about your problem.
It's possible you have a blocked drain filter ....
Have a look in your manual and check out how to clean out a blocked drain filter in the problem solving guide section on p 37.
If you no longer have your manual go to http://www.miele.com.au/au/domestic/service/aftersales_operatinginstructions.aspx and type in W2525 in the product code box to download one.
Feel free to ask more questions.

Thank you Andy 92 for your reply to my email the technician did come last week and unfortunately it was not a blocked drain filter, to repair my W2125 is far more expensive then expected $650 to replace the front panel plus $159.00 for call out . So disappointed in the life of my Miele I thought buying up marketing $2400 I expected the product to live up to at least 10yrs plus. So sorry to say I shall go back to the cheaper brands which I do expect to have faults at 7 yrs and I will still have change to buy another and still have change , I think Miele needs to take a look at the technology and price of products.

Hi, sorry to hear you are having trouble.
Have you referred to page 34 of your manual? Possibly the water protection system has reacted?
cheers , Andy

It sounds like you have water in the base plate of the washing machine. I understand there is a float switch in there which has triggered the fault. You will need to drain the water away and you could try to tilt the machine forward to get the water out.
