Best dishwasher I had in over 30 years
We bought this machine 1.5 years ago following a disastrous experience with a new Bosch dishwasher which hardly dried, and had to be returned to the retailer. This machine is a joy to use, performs well in every regard, and drying is outstanding. I always knew that Miele was the best of the best, but shied away from buying one because of the price tag. Now I regret I did not buy one earlier. Friends of ours had owned a Miele dishwasher for nearly 20 years, when they needed their first spare part. It was still available! You will not find this with other manufacturers.

feel so sad and disappointed
We bought the dishwasher 2.5 years ago.i spend $1500 bcz I believe it will last long and no more on going experiences.. last year it showed error f79 and reset and it work fine and now again same error came but not able to fix it . Then call to Miele and explain them whole story. After payed $1500 just before 2 years now need to pay for $179 call out and don’t know how much more .. really very bad decision in my life ... bcz according the google search f 79 means need new pump which is near about $600 . Can’t believe they promise 20
Years and main part of the dishwasher failed just in 2 years .. finger cross

Always leaves food on dishes
Our 2 drawer fisher and packel died so I thought I would try the Miele. What a mistake. The only way we can get a reasonable wash is to remove the filter basket, which quickly broke off anyway. The machine is so difficult to clean and the sprayers are impossible to unclog. I end up hand washing most of the time. The only good thing is it is quiet.

Very Happy with this machine.
Very Happy with this machine. Our last Miele lasted for 17 years. This model is user friendly, does a great job but we do scrape our dishes. Rack is versatile, easy to load and love the wine glass holder. Highly recommend this Meile dishwasher.

Overpriced because it underperforms, with poor design and poor washing results. Will choose another
This was the top of the range free standing dishwasher that Miele had available. I waited until it went on special, so it was $1500 plus I paid for the 5 year warranty $250, total investment $1750. Stacking this dishwasher is not easy, it takes me forever to try to fit in a standard amount of washing because the design is so inflexible and things just don't fit in it. I rarely use plates, I use a lot of different sized bowls, pots, pans, jugs, glass and stainless steel water bottles, and round, square and rectangle glass containers and lids. Ev...en standard cereal bowls don't stack properly into it, they don't sit up, they fall on each other. It's very hard to get things to fit without wasting a lot of room in the process. Stacking cutlery, of which I use mainly spoons, teaspoons, and large cooking spoons is also cumbersome, it all doesn't fit easily. There is no place for different shapes and sizes, other than standard dishes, and if I stack things in the corners like a glass cup or along the edges like a chopping board, they don't get washed properly either, so I can't fill the dishwasher up like I used to be able to with my previous Bosch or the brand I had before that which was a Fisher and Paykel. It's just unbelievable how inflexible and poorly designed the racks are for a "premium" price point. And "yes Miele", I know where all the adjustable parts are, there's just not enough adjust-ability. The wash cycles take a long time which would be fine, but the clean is below standard for the cutlery rack and the bottom rack, and anything placed in corners. I always have to use the 70 degree intensive setting to get a decent clean, and I use Miele tabs or Finish, but get better results with Finish. When going from one cycle to the next, for the second wash, often the cycle won't start, so I have to jiggle and push the door until it starts. Trying to clean saucepans properly or use the gentle cycle for glasses or plastics, or the lightly soiled wash for delicates often won't clean everything properly. Cleaning out the filter properly (which I do after every wash to try to get the best wash out of a bad dishwasher each time) is tedious because of how it's designed, and trying to put it back together and back into dishwasher, is incredibly fiddly and frustrating. You can't see what goes where, I've marked it with laundry marker, but it keeps washing off of course. The instructions, youtube etc didn't shed light on the method at the time I bought it. Food often gets stuck in the spindle parts, and removing them and flushing them with water won't always flush the food out, and there is no way for me to pull the spindles apart to clean them out, they are closed so you can't open them, so I need to use tweezers and I've even tried using the vacuum cleaner to try to get food particles out but it usually just falls back into the spindle! I contacted Miele within 30 days of use to complain about the poor wash results, and to ask for a refund. The lady was rude to me and said that she could send someone out to show me how to stack the dishwasher. I told her that I wasn't happy with it and wanted a refund and that this is my 3rd dishwasher and the first time I've had poor results, pretty sure I know how to stack a dishwasher! She said if I sent the machine back, I'd have to pay a 20% restocking fee. With such rude and unfair customer support, I resolved to keep it due to the cost of restocking, and to sell it off when I move house in future. My previous dishwasher was a Bosch which lasted 7 years, but it washed well and was flexible with stacking, and I now wish I stuck with the brand. I thought Miele was a premiere brand, and I was going to deck out my whole house with this brand when I move, as I had thought I'd take this dishwasher with me and I bought their $750 vacuum cleaner and it seemed pretty good. But now I think it's just an overpriced and overrated brand name, with poor customer service and return policy. I'll be going back to Dyson for the next vacuum too! Miele, -never again!

Love having a dishwasher
Good dishwasher. Sometimes it doesn’t clean as well as I’d like but I think that could be from dodgy dishwasher tablets as it’s not consistent. Very quiet when in use which I love. Easy to clean. Doesn’t dry plastic dishes as well as I’d like but that’s only a minor issue.
Great Dishwasher, cant fault it.
The G6620 SCU from Miele is a great dishwasher, every now and then we get the odd dish that has baked on stuff requiring re washing, but 99% the time, dishes are spotless, washer is realively quiet, so all in all we are happy with our purchase. Great job Miele.
It cleans the dishes brilliantly!
It is exceptionally quiet. We are using the QuickPowerWash which is a 56 minute cycle.
Favourite feature is how we can put long stemmed wine glasses in the bottom draw and the can be safely washed. I also like the cutlery pull out draw. This ensures all cutlery is washed and no food is missed.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this dishwasher as a great investment.
We purchased in white.
Super clean and quiet
Quality build as you’d expect from Miele. I bought this one to replace my old 6 series Miele. The 6620 is quiet and has a neat door opening function at the end of the cycle - helps with drying. Plates and cuttlery come out clean and glasses spotless and shiny. The 50 minute express wash works well so I’ve not bothered with the longer cycles.

I purchased the dishwasher a couple of weeks back and I am very dissatisfied with the product. I rarely get a clean load as there are always crumbs and stains on the some of the dishes. The trays are so lose / smooth that the slightest push results in the dishes banging against each other and the glasses toppling over.
I have used Bosch machines for the last 17 years without any issues and only moved to Miele as it was highly recommended.
Seriously considering returning the machine if Miele cannot resolve the problems.
This is the best dishwasher I've had! Very quiet, washes & dries very efficiently, & the door opens once finished to ensure everything stays dry. The automatic feature is excellent & I love the cutlery tray. A great size & fits a great amount of things per wash. Highly recommended!
Questions & Answers
Is the Miele G 6620 SC still a reliable model over BOSCH interms of performance?
I am planning to purchase this model with extended warranty from Harvey Norman hoping they will cover for any damages?
Most important thing to me is the performance. Appreciate your suggestion.
Where is this product made? Thanks
Germany. Since the last post Miele have been in touch and sent a technician out Friday. He checked it over and said all was good and it was no noisier than it should. The first wash I reported the cutlery came our dirty. It hasn’t been a problem since. In fact the dishes are certainly clean. It’s just not as quiet as I expected it to be.
Hi. May I know how long each progranme lasts (drying included)
Also, does it have any leak proof technology (whether leak from machine or water inlet)?
Hi, regarding how the programs last please refer to the instruction manual. You can find it via this link https://www.miele.com.au/professional/inactivem-user-manuals-177.htm and type in the 'Product name' field 'G 6620' and download the operating instructions and refer to page 64-65 for cycle times. With regard to leak-proof technology, there is a leak protection float switch in the sump which turns off inlet water and turns on the drain pump in event of any water leakage. The inlet hose has a waterproof double inlet valve at the start of the hose to prevent water pressure to build up in the inlet hose. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call us on 1300 464 353. Kind regards, Anna.
