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.
Purchased in March 2019 at Miele Online Shop for $1,709.00.

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.
Purchased in July 2019 at Clewers of Clare for $1,599.00.

Happy with our Miele G6620 SCU Dishwasher
The Miele G6620 SCU is an excellent dishwasher. I was initially apprehensive about spending so much, but it washes very well for both normal dishes and pots and pans, is quiet and is of a high quality. We highly recommend this machine.
The best yet
I purchased this dishwasher in Sept 2018 to replace my ailing Bosch. It is the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned. I love the cutlery tray configuration as it is so versatile. The quick power wash suits all but the most soiled, baked on pots and dishes. The longer washes are great for dealing with the more heavily soiled items. The drying is excellent, especially the way the door automatically props open and continues the drying cycle with the fan still going. All in all I am very pleased with this purchase. In addition the salesman at Bing Lee Belconnen was very helpful in showing the features of the various dishwashers and was not at all pushy.
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.
We love this dishwasher so much.
Our old dishwasher died and we couldn't decide whether to get an ASKO or a Miele. We went with an ASKO which was a total fiasco, so once our refund was sorted we bought this Miele dishwasher, and I don't think a day goes by where my partner and I don't remind each other of how much we love it. It looks great in our kitchen, but it's not just a pretty face.
The cutlery tray is excellent, and the design of the drawers is great. We are constantly amazed at how much we can fit in, and big or awkward items that never fit in our old dishwasher go...in easily. It is super quiet, we never have to worry about bursting hoses, and my favourite feature is how it opens itself a crack after it finishes - I never knew I needed this feature until we had it! The ASKO we originally chose had 'touch' style buttons with no tactile feedback which usually took a few presses to work, which wasn't something we realised we hated until we had to use it. This Miele has nice solid push buttons - simple is good. Dishes have always come out sparkling clean no matter which cycle we've used. I don't want to complain about anything on this dishwasher as it doesn't deserve it, but if I had to find something, the bottom drawer rolls so smoothly that it's easy to send a full drawer of plates crashing to the back of the dishwasher if you're not careful.

So Far, we are impressed
We replaced our Asko after 9 years which just died, and as we are not up for hand dish washing.
We purchased ours from Harvey Norman, the lady knew everything about each model of Miele, but I also checked each brand they carried, and the Miele stood out from the rest. This is our first Miele Appliance we have purchased, so expectations are high.
The Miele, so far amazes us. Every thing comes out so clean. Glasses sparkle like I've never seen before. We had it installed 1 month ago and so far, very happy with the performance of the dishwa...sher. I liked the option of the extra shelf for cutlery, which separates each piece ensuring a good clean,plus the extra space given in place of the basket we used to have. The installation went without a hitch, and we are happy with our purchase. Prices seem to be fixed by the supplier, which is somewhat questionable that retailers can't offer any further discounts on delivery or installation, or the appliance itself. Is that price fixing?

I've had this dishwasher for 5 weeks now. It replaces a 15 year old Miele dishwasher which I gave to my son (and which is still working perfectly). I am very happy with the new dishwasher. I have tried various programs on it (automatic, intensive, eco), as well as the shorter intensive option on one program, on loads of varying degrees of food encrusting, and have found everything comes out perfectly clean. This model has a cutlery tray, which I find very useful. The centre of the tray can be lowered if necessary for larger cutlery items.
T...he machine is so quiet that at times I've had to lean down and put my ear near to the door to determine if it was actually working. The only time I hear anything is when it is discharging water down the drain. Other reviewers have commented that in their experience the bottom rack doesn't hold large dinner plates. That is not my experience. I have had no problems stacking any of my crockery and pots. The buttons on the front are easy to use and self-explanatory. They include the options to delay start and also to use an intensive, shorter form of all programs except the eco program. As I have always done, I rinse off the worst of the food scraps before loading crockery and pots into the machine but I don't go to extremes. The machine cleans everything with no problems, including melted cheese from dishes like macaroni cheese. I particularly like the fact that the machine partially opens the door when it is finished (this is configurable but is on by default). This means that everything is completely dry when I unload the machine. I have no hesitation in recommending the machine. As with all my experiences with various Miele products over many years (washing machine, dryer, oven, range hood, induction cooktop), this machine is top quality and works perfectly.

Love it and easy to reinstall front
Had an old Miele dishwasher for 15 years that broke, brought this one as we needed the salt option and an Intergrative front. The front was very easy to install and so was the dishwasher. Would highly recommend, especially if replacing an old Miele making it easy for me to do.
The Best Dishwasher
Should have bought a Miele the first time.
I have owned a German Bosch and an ASKO dishwasher and both brands have absolutely nothing on this.
Extremely Quiet. The Wine glass holder in the bottom rack is very convenient. The plates stack perfectly if you know how to stack a dishwasher.
11/10 Wash Quality. The Automatic Cycle is amazing.
I run the dishwasher either before I go to work or before I go to bed and every-time I go back to the dishwasher the Dishes are DRY! AND CLEAN!
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.
Excellent, thorough, efficient.
The Miele is a quiet dishwasher and thoroughly cleans dishes efficiently using the Automatic feature. The cutlery tray is uniquely designed so that all cutlery and knives are thoroughly cleaned and dried without water stains. my favourite feature is when it has completed the wash, the door opens slightly and lets out all the steam.
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.
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.
Do you use finish tabs, rinse aid and dishwasher cleaner? How does it compare to the Miele brand?
We get frequent power outages. When the power came back on, our old Miele dishwasher would resume operating from the point where it was when the power went off and just complete the cycle. The new 6620 just stops in its tracks. When the power resumes, the dishwasher is just sitting there and the cycle needs to be started all over again. This is a concern to me as we only have tank water and we need to be very careful with the amount of water we use. Added to this is the extra power and detergent used to wash the load all over again. Why did Miele change the system used in the old dishwasher? It seems a very retrograde step and certainly not very environmentally friendly. Is there any way around this?
My guess is your old one had a mechanical timer. The new ones would be electronic and thus loose their place after a power failure.
Thank you. I'll just have to live with it.
