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
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 .
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.
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.
Purchased in March 2020 for A$1,748.00.
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.
Unbelievable Quality Dishwasher
It was the best choice to get Miele Happy enough and not disappointed at all. Tough hardworking reliable quality great use of space very convenient to use. Little pricy but it’s Great value for Money.
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.
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.
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 A$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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

Broke after 2 weeks with circulation pump issue, F78 and support poor
I bought this because I frequently hear Miele is the best. There seems to be a common fault with this model with the circulation pump, error code f78. My new machine broke after two weeks. It took a week to get a service visit. When the technician arrived he refused to work on it because I unplugged it and made me book another call which took an extra week. On the technician's return he got it working again for a day but broke again. Then I booked another service call which will take another week. Still not fixed.
Other observations when it worked.
1. Door doesn't stay fully opened forcing the bottom tray to roll back
2. There is no quick wash. Fastest cycle is 1 hour 50 min
3. Plastics and materials feel light
Questions & Answers
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
How old is the design of this Machine (G 4930 SC)? I can see reviews dating 2016 online, we are on 2020 so is it worth buying a 4 yo design machine?
That's correct, it is a 4 year old machine. As our Miele products are German engineered and tested to the equivalent of 20 years’ average usage they will be a great dishwasher for many years to come.
We have benchmarked these to the market and our innovation/features and performance is consistently strong v’s the competitor.
Had a Whirlpool dishwasher for 15 years and the one thing I liked about it was that we could do a rinse cycle on the dishes until we filled the dishwasher with the next day's dishes. Find that the Miele does not have this option. Not altogether happy about this. Am I wrong, does it have a rinse option? Have read the instruction book and cannot find this option.
