Once a Miele, always a Miele
We have been using our new Miele dishwasher for four months and have been very happy with its performance.
We were lucky enough to have a Miele dishwasher in our previous rental home, it gave us no issues all the years we were there. As we have now purchased our own home, we knew the dishwasher had to be Miele.
Being quiet and efficient is just the start, these machines deliver consistently amazing results, wash after wash.
The baskets are versatile and modular, so that big chopping board or oversized pot fits easily. When adjusting the bask...ets or shelves, you are reassured things have locked into place with positive feedback. While on the topic of baskets, even when fully loaded, they roll on and out with very little effort. While there are not endless wash cycles to choose from, all your bases are covered. From glass care to intensive and even an auto cycle where the machine figures out the best wash options, based on how dirty the water is. Most cycles can also be sped up by using the turbo button, perfect for when you need clean dishes quickly. We mostly use the auto program for the “usual” load that is run every day or two. It’s never failed giving clean dishes while being economical on resources. The auto cycle is even smart enough to use the prewash water for the main wash, so long as it’s not too dirty.
This was a replacement for our 12year old Bosch dishwasher. It is much quieter and well laid out. The top tray with sliding/height adjustable shelf is very handy and allows for larger items like ladles.
Lower tray rolls very freely and can take you by surprise if not all the way in when you close the door, with tray hitting back wall at high speed. Door feels very light though and a bit flimsy when compared to older Bosch unit.
Overall good machine for the price.
Great dishwasher - washes dishes well.
Very happy with dishwasher. I particularly like the top cutlery tray that keeps my cutlery clean and shiny and allows more room in the drawers below for all of the crockery. This is our second Miele, it runs quietly, has a energy mode, washes everything well. I used to have a cheaper dishwasher and found that I had to re-run the load again sometimes if it did not wash well, with Miele - this is not the case. Washes well everytime.
Purchased in January 2018 for $1,600.00.
Excellent-very happy with it.
This dishwasher replaces a 16/17 year old Miele dishwasher. I did as much research as I could before purchasing as technology has very much changed over the years.
Ultimately I decided that they were all pretty much of a muchness and given my previous dishwasher had never caused me a problem I went with Miele again.
My old dishwasher was very quiet. This is quieter. The old dishwasher did a great job, but I’m using the same tablets and rinse aid and I’m pretty sure the dishes are coming out much shinier.
My old stainless steel dishwash...er didn’t have clean steel. This one does and it’s made a huge difference. The old one always seemed to need wiping down. This one stays so much cleaner. Overall I’m very happy I decided to stick with Miele. That being said, I did get the service agent out because even after the first wash I wasn’t really happy with the drying. Especially plastics (a challenge for any dishwasher), and got them to extend the drying time. I’m much happier with it since they did that.

Second miele dishwasher purchased in 10yrs. Stacks well, reliable, and quiet machine. We run it overnight with no issues. Needed to increase the run time after trying with a simple eco and not having the best results. Had the machine installed by miele themselves and it was a professional and easy job. Required an additional hose which the installer had to hand. Highly recommend.

Awfull persistent smell since day one and only 4 months old
Awful smell always on everything - just like prior reviewer has said. My last Miele was 5/5, this is awful. I’ve tried 4 different brands of tablets. I have rinse aid in .i have scrubbed it inside incl basket drain and all arm jets. Ive put vinegar and bicarbonate soda i as well as straight water rinses. I’ve done finish dishwasher cleaner every week. It’s 4 months installed and it’s awful.
We paid a little more and on advice from the store bought the Miele. It was installed at the end of November and in January we noticed a water mark on our timber floors at the corners of the dishwasher door. Service person came and made a door adjustment. The unit is still leaking, he came back and said it needs a new seal which he doesn’t carry even though he has had to come it twice for the same problem. He will return for a third time in a week and a half. This machine is 2 months old and needs a new seal? Not up to the standard we expected ...from a Miele product. Our floor is also damaged from water leak. We will now have a machine that is fairly new, has damaged very expensive flooring and had a repair done to it. Miele have not been very helpful and we are disappointed in our purchase.

Best dishwasher ever.
Best dishwasher I have ever owned. I scrape the food of before placing plates in. The inside space is amazing & I can easily use even when I have all of my family over, which will be 7 people.
Washes clean every time & I extremely rarely will have to rewatch anything due to a poor was.
Purchased in July 2015 for $1,299.00.
amazing what technology can achieve
have been told not to scrape because sensor wash detects what needs to be doneb,in the two years we had it never got clogged and when it did the rep came out and showed us what to do

I bought this dishwasher in February 2018, so at the time of writing I've been using it for 11 months. I bought it because I moved into a new house that had a Smeg dishwasher already installed. However, the Smeg really didn't give me the kind of results I was looking for. Cutlery, plates and bowls would regularly come out of it with bits of food still stuck on, and due to the heat generated in the machine they deposits would be baked on and hard to remove. It was the worst-performing dishwasher that I'd ever used, so I sold it on Gumtree and bo...ught the Miele instead. The difference in performance is remarkable. It's very rare for anything to come out of the Miele with food still stuck on it. Maybe one item every 6 or 7 washes, compared with multiple items every wash with the Smeg. The machine is whisper-quiet. You can barely hear it when running. In fact, a few times I've had to go back to the machine to check that it was running, as I couldn't hear it and thought that I had forgotten to push the start button. In terms of usage, I just put it onto the Auto program each time. What that does is employ sensors in the machine to determine how much water to use, what temperature to heat the water to, and how long to run the program based upon the load inside. You can get an impressive amount of stuff into the machine. The top tray is for cutlery - it doesn't have a cutlery basket like most dishwashers, but a dedicated tray. The middle tray can shift up and down to make more room below - very useful if you want to put very tall items into the bottom tray.
Excellent dishwasher. Best we have had
Our F&P one day died so my wife researched and selected the Miele Jubilee SC for our new dishwasher. Wow... we noticed the difference straight away. This dishwasher cleans everything and very very rarely misses any food scraps. We've had this for around 18 months now and still performs excellent since the day we got it. Oh and it is very quiet!
Not a complaint, though once it would not start as we had a bowl in the machine that apparently aimed water toward the door, so the water was able to flow to the bottom and activated the flood switch....Once it dried out, it worked like normal again. To find this out, we had had a technician come and investigate. He made some adjustments so as to perform better (it does) though now doesn't dry as well as it used to. We can live with that, though something to be mindful of when loading the machine (my wife learnt the hard way :p ) Would absolutely recommend Miele to anyone.
Smells after Wash
Disappointed with Miele brand as paid a bit more for what is reputed as the best. Since the first wash, there is an unpleasant odour on all the dishes. I've contacted Miele customer service, received a few 'obvious' actions, even had a technician out to check set-up and machine performance. They left with a couple of descaler tablets and reported all OK. Clearly can't be. I purchased an extra Miele 1m drain hose at my expense to create a high point in case the issue was with the non-return valve. Have lodged a request with Miele to replace it in the hope this is a one-off issue and something the technician can't assess. Unfortunately my perception of Miele products will be swayed by thow they handle my request.
After 18 years with my Dishlex I my first Miele. It’s so quiet cleans fabulously. I would have given 5 stars just one irritating this is the bottom rack rolls back in so it very frustrating loading and unloading I have to put a cloth to stop it doing that.
This dishwasher was installed 17 September 2018. At installation F78 showed and fixed by installer. Second time we used machine the F13 error showed needing a visit by the local technician to fix. Today F24 showed up and we now await the technican. Poor performance in the first 6 weeks of ownership and very disappointing. If it is not running properly after this next fix then Miele will be asked to refund or replace what is obviosly a dud machine.
Matches the bench top boards.
Just had our kitchen upgraded and there's a black strip under the bench top so we went looking around for a dishwasher that wouldn't stand out to much and found this on appliances online. It looks pretty much like it dose online and the black strip where there buttons and screen is was just the right night for our bench. The dishwasher performs good and cleans the plates possibly better than hand washing would do. Am very happy with this washer!
I so love this dish washer. It’s the best one i have ever had... bar none. It gets the dishes really clean. It is also very quiet. I find that it also does not require a lot of service or maintenance or upkeep of any kind. Saves time and money.
This dishwasher is pretty quite and uses minimum water. Only downside is the 45 degree wash (also the shortest cycle) doesnt do the best job, Dishes still seen oily. Also if you dont open it soon as it finishes dishers dont dry very well. The bottom rack also won't stay out it rolls back which is annoying when stacking
Affordable, perfect and one of the BEST dishwashers available!!
Have had a Miele dish washer for the last 11 years. It’s affordable user friendly, simple and one of the BEST dishwashers out there. Love the separate cutlery tray, cleans good although the cups do not dry well enough on the top ( probably design feature of cups) no complaints and really pleased with my purchase. It’s very quite during the cycle as well.
Don’t bother with this model
Worked well for 4 months, then got a F78 fault code. It took nearly two weeks to get a service call, and was told that it was a known issue with this dishwasher. Service man replaced the whole front panel after testing it once again said it was fine. The next night I put the washer on and within 5 minutes the fault came up again! miele offered to replace the dishwasher with the same model but I didn’t want this as it could’ve been another lemon. They refused to upgrade me to a better model, so I asked for a refund. Which I got. I have since bou...ght a Bosch which cleans the dishes even better than the Miele. I did however prefer the Miele interior. Throughly disappointed by the experience. I questioned why they didn’t recall this model, they said it was only a small percentage of them! Yeah right! I noticed they have been heavily reduced.
Great and affordable dishwasher
If you want an affordable dishwasher that does the job then this is the best buy. It's relatively quiet, easy to use, the instructions are easy and is energy efficient. I'm currently building a house and am thinking of getting another Miele G 4930 for my house. Would definitely recommend!

Questions & Answers
I have Miele 4930 SCU CLST.
Since I have it, I haven't heard finishing sound like ding ding or music.
Is it normal without sound?
For $200 more than the model below, the only difference seems to be the ‘professional pump’. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the base Miele pump and the professional pump?
With this model, what date was it made?
