Excellent cleaning - Poor drying
The dishwasher does an excellent job at cleaning the dishes, cutlery, pots, and pans whilst quiet too. However, it is extremely poor at drying the dishes, even after giving to a few hours with the door open/ closed a few hours after to help with the condensation. There are definitely better options out there and am disappointed expecting better given the brand and price @ $1700.

Thank you to all that have left reviews
Just wanted to drop in & thank all that have left good & not so good reviews regarding their Miele product. Had my heart set on buying a Meile dishwasher but now that i know you can't even get a discount for the meile brand & now realising Meile has a poor customer service reputation I'm pleased to say Ive made a decision to go Bosch as their customer service may or may not be the same as Meile I definitely get a great discount for the dishwasher with my 15k spend at binglee.. good bye Meile. You should probably pay more attention to your current customers as they can make or break a companies reputation..
I never pre rinse. The clean is amazing, it is quiet OH SO QUITE!
And it is built really really well. Hands down over all the others I looked at.
The layout is very well designed and the condense pump drying is brilliant.
I’ve since bought Miele drier and washing mashing and am equally impressed
Purchased in November 2020 at Miele.
Loved the dishwasher, non-existent support
Very happy with the dishwasher - it's quiet and cleans really well.
Unfortunately after just over a year of use it stopped working. That didn't worry me as it's under warranty - these things happen.
What is very disappointing is that when I called on Christmas Eve to book a technician to come out, the lady told me that the soonest anybody can come out is in 4 weeks. Either they don't employ enough trades people or they have a huge amount of problems to fix. It was very insulting to be told that we are high priority. I'd hate to see how long it...

This machine simply does not dry the dishes . It has a good energy rating which I can only assume is achieved by not having a drying element. When the wash cycle is finished you are left with a whitish coloured water sitting on your dishes / containers anywhere that water could pool ( Underside of a coffee cup) Miele Customer service say to crack the door open when the wash cycle is finished to stop the condensation - no difference. I would have purchased another model or brand of machine had the salesman advised the machine doesn't dry . I p...urchased this Miele based on my previous Miele dishwasher which was excellent - this latest machine cost $1399.00 and doesn't work as well as the base model LG I replaced. If Miele read this my customer number is 3299212.

Our G4930SCU is so so quiet whilst doing a full load.
The quietest brand of dishwasher we have ever had. You wouldn't know it was going. Performance wise it's perfect every time. Use the ECO setting mostly. No complaints, what so ever.

F70 error just after 15 days of running
F70 error displaying after just 15 days of running.Called customer service and they said they will send technician only after one week.Very disappointed.So even after paying high price and no guarantee you get best service

I bought this dishwasher (or the earlier version of it) 5 years ago and loved it. We sold our house recently and am currently in a rental, whilst building a new home, and it has another brand of dishwasher. I did not realise how good my Miele was until I now have used something else. It has 100% made my decision easy, I am buying another Miele for my new home and it is this model I am buying. So good!

Is the purchase high risk?
As someone reading these reviews before I buy a Miele G 4930 CLST I am concerned about the number of reports of a terrible smell that seems very hard to get rid of. At one point it is indicated that Miele is aware that there is a problem with some of these machines. Can Miele please respond indicating what they have actually done about this? If I buy this machine am I gambling that I may or may not get a smelly machine? What assurance can you offer me? In response to negative reviews about this issue (and all issues) Miele seems to provide a standard cut and paste response asking for contact details and taking the matter off line. I would like a public response to this issue and not a standard cut and paste reply.
Disappointing drying results
Purchased Jan 2020, mostly satisfied . Good washing , low noise levels but drying cycle is below par . All of the plastics still wet when finishing a cycle . Would have expected better from a reputable company like Miele .

Good Quality Dishwasher
I have gone through a number of dishwashers over the years and up until now, none could match the original ASEA back in the 1980s which was going strong even after 10 years.
ASEA which became ASKO and for which I provided a separate review on its dishwasher, was a disappointment and hence the reason for transferring my loyalty to Miele. Although expensive I was keen to test Miele's reputation and to have a dishwasher that was reliable, and simply did the job it was made for.
It's been two and a half years and this Miele dishwasher hasn't mis...sed a beat and I'm very happy with it. Interactions with Miele in the delivery and installation process was seamless and "painfree". Customer service excellent unlike the previous dishwasher company.
Not a good example
So 6 years old and stopped working. Quote to repair was $950. New power board cost $600. Contacted Miele and got their standard a customer care consultant will contact you. Hasn’t happened. No doubt will blame COVID 19. So We have A bought a Bosch Dishwasher for the cost of the repair. Hopefully will last longer.

Miele Lasts !
My last Miele dishwasher lasted 20 years and I never had a problem or had to call a repair man during those 20 years. The only thing my new dishwasher doesn’t have is a rinse only cycle.
Purchased in June 2020 at The Good Guys.
Smell still there after 2 1/2 months
Despite alerting Miele about the terrible smell emanating from this machine whilst in use, and also after use, and despite running through the machine the cleaning solution Miele provided and following all their other cleaning instructions this dishwasher still releases the bad smell.

Regret purchasing, will never buy another Miele product
Purchased January 2020. The machine stunk so bad when we first used it my wife wanted it out of the house. Tried running pots and pans cycle with vinegar a few times to get rid of the disgusting odour but it didn't work. Then telephoned Miele customer care, they were aware of the problem in some machines and sent out some Miele Intense Clean for us to use in the machine. The smell was reduced but remained and took about a month to be acceptable. Not at all good for a brand-new machine. We would have thrown it out of the house except for it wash...ing very good - excellent. In April, less than 3 months old it started making loud banging sounds just before water drained out, when there was about I hour remaining in the wash program. At first, I thought it may have been baking dishes hitting each other due to the machine not being stacked correctly but this was not the case. We hoped it was a one-off occurrence, but it wasn't. It didn't happen every wash cycle and we thought if a service call is made it may not make the sound when the service man came. Also, the machine would need to run for about an hour to get to the time when the banging occurs. I decided to video record the sound when it occurred and made several recordings to gather evidence. I even ran the machine empty with nothing in it to prove that it was not stacked incorrectly. I recorded that also to show the serviceman. I made the booking for a service call online - very easy. The serviceman arrived the next week on time (between 8:30am - 12:00pm). The serviceman was very polite and professional. I played a few of the recordings including the recording of the empty machine. He admitted that he had never heard the sound before but said it may be a faulty drain pump. He had one in his vehicle and replaced the part while he was there. I said to the serviceman, I hope that this fixes it because I didn't want him coming back again trying to guess what was wrong with the machine. I also said that if Miele needs to come back it should be with a truck and a replacement machine. The serviceman agreed the machine would need to be replaced under warranty if the new drain pump didn't fix the problem. That night when the machine was used for the first time after the attempted repair the banging sound was worse! I have a recording of the sound again. I telephoned Miele the next morning telling them that the problem was still there and that I wanted the machine replaced. Their answer was no, we need to send a serviceman out to inspect the machine before we can replace it. I am now required to take another half day off work to meet with the serviceman. It is now Saturday night the repair was done Wednesday morning, four days ago. I have four new recordings of this faulty machine and will probably have more before the serviceman comes back next Wednesday. This has totally turned me off ever buying another Miele product. Built to last 20 YEARS is a Con! I would be happy to get just 10years. I was reluctant to write this review and probably would not have if Miele had just said they would replace the machine when I telephoned them on Thursday morning. When I finally get a replacement dishwasher it had better not stink or else, I will not accept it in my house. The ball is in you court Miele. How many more half days will I need to take off work?
Disappointed With Drying Performance
For the premium price paid and the brand reputation, I am disappointed. Crockery in top tray still damp, bowls in middle tray some are wet and bottom tray likewise. Plastics are really wet. We had a F&P for a few years and it dried all incl plastics perfectly.

Good first dishwasher
This is my first dishwasher so I don't really have anything to compare it with. I've been using it for over 2 months now. Overall, I am very happy with it. It's easy to use. The dishes always comes out clean. I am not sure if all dishwashers are as effortless like this one. Miele customer service was very good too.
Purchased in September 2019 at The Good Guys for $1,399.00.
Might cost a little more but worth every cent.
Purchased Miele dishwasher in November, after struggling for years with a much lesser known dishwasher (Linea) that was included when we built our house. Absolutely thrilled with our purchase. Yes, Miele may be more expensive than some other brands, but well worth it. Cleans dishes, glasses, cutlery to perfection with no need to rinse first. (We had to rewash dishes from our old dishwasher previously.) The quietness is an added bonus. We are very happy and would definitely recommend Miele for anyone looking to purchase new dishwasher.

Another excellent product from Miele!
So we originally had a G4101 in Brilliant White. Was excellent and only had one small issue with a sensor that was replaced. Although we didn't get the MSC for this item, Miele was great and only charged us for the part! Even as it was out of warranty. So with their stepped up game and excellent customer service, we needed a new dishwasher as we left our old one in a rental property.
We decided on this model as it's affordable and has just the cycles we use. It didn't have the cutlery tray in the top like a few models below it, but the higher...energy efficiency and less water usage was a worthwhile trade off. As I like to have all my appliances matching we chose the brilliant white once again. It's been a great dishwasher, even more quiet than the G4101. It's a bit loud when it's empty, as we ran a cycle to clean it out before using, but once dishes are in, it's extremely quiet and the pump and water fill is quieter as well. There are several more adjustable prongs and areas to fit even more things to wash. It's a very simple dishwasher with cycles for most things you'd want to wash. We use Miele rinse aid and detergent tabs and powder, depending on what we are washing. The plastic items seem to dry even better on this new machine as well. My Riedel wine glasses come out spotless and we never rinse anything before using. And not one thing has come out dirty. It has a delay start which is handy to run at night and ready when you get up. This is another Miele product that we have added and couldn't be happier. Delivery was easy and smooth, although they came a bit earlier than they stated.

i have the same dishwasher with the error code F78 and have a booking for next week for technician, my dishwasher is in warranty we have had it 12 months, will i have to pay for a new pump to be replaced or will Miele cover that cost as it is faulty? i have had two other Miele machines for 15 years no problems, and this was purchased to replace our old Westinghouse dishwasher. I will be most displeased should they tell me I have to pay for a faulty part I did not break. Some answers would be great. Regards Katherine
Hi Katherine, There is a two year warranty on your dishwasher, so it should be covered under warranty. In the mean-time try running your dishwasher on the pots and pans cycle. This may free up the circulation pump. I hope that this will assist you. Regards Peter
i am interested in the number of place settings and cant find it in any of the details
My product manual states capacity at 14 place settings.
I am not sure - why not give Miele Australia a call? I am sure they will be able to help you.
