The machine is time consuming and annoying to use. Constantly alarming to clean the filters when they are clean.
Huge waste of money - we never use it now and use indoor close lines instead.
Don't buy this dryer
Bought this machine last year and it keeps stopping to say clean out airways when they are clean. Hadn't seen all the other reviews that this is problem. Booked Miele repair online and a technitian was (eventually) sent out who charged $600 to repair, even though still under warranty. Now trying to get money back from Miele. I have bought several Miele products recently and am having major quality issues and service is very slow and low quality.

Nightmare dryer. Takes 8 goes to dry a single load
Ever since we bought this model (to match washing machine) it has beeped to clean out the airways. However lately, it will only work for 5 minutes then beep to clean out the airways. It will take 8+ attempts to dry a single small load. Untenable. I won’t buy Miele again after this dryer. Having read the reviews I can now see it’s a dodgy model. What an expensive mistake! Really disappointed
Hardly works, and when it does, stops constantly to beep
Dryer takes multiple cycles to dry clothes. Constantly stops to tell you to clean airways, even if they are spotless. Modes are confusing, and there is no standard mode to set a timer with hot air. We got the dryer to match our Miele washing machine, and are really disappointed. We actively avoid using it unless absolutely necessary
Doesn't dry properly and "Clean out Airways" requested repeatedly and when no need
This dryer has been a huge disappointment. I have been a Miele purchaser for years and have generally been happy with everything from vacuums to washing machines. It regularly tells me to "clean the airways" but filters are always clean - I clean after every use. What’s more the dryer does not dry properly.

Constantly beeps and says clean out airways
I will NEVER again buy another Miele product and wish I'd read these reviews before were purchased our washing machine and dryer. The dryer constantly beeps and says to clean out the filters, even though we do before we try to use it. I got a quote to get a service and it's way too expensive. Will just buy a new dryer and advise others not to get a Miele! As a Mum I don't have time for these frustrations.

Never works properly - constantly requires airways to be cleaned
After having discussed the below product issue with Miele, they worked with us on coming up with a solution that worked for us to get us a working dryer in a super quick timeframe.
The customer service which Miele provided was absolutely outstanding.
If there was a category for customer service or support in the review I would give that 5 stars.
Can certainly recommend buying from Miele.
Original review below:
Clean out airways
The dryer was purchased with a matching front loader Miele washer. Dryer keeps requesting me to clean the airways which has been done before and after each cycle. Recently even trying to dry 5 light items causes the dryer to struggle and request the airways to be cleaned again. Not the best.
Below average - clothes never gets fully dried. Disappointing
This Dryer does not do the job. It beeps constantly saying clean filters but the filters are always clean and the clothes never gets dried, even adding the 30 mins warm air cycle... I always end up hanging the clothes in a rack to get fully dried. It's very frustrating when you have to wash and dry kids clothes for next day. I own other Miele appliances that are great; this one, let me down.

All it does is beep constantly
This dryer is so hopeless I have been a Miele purchaser for years and have generally been happy with everything from vacuums to washers and dishwashers. BUT this dryer is absolutely hopeless all it does is beep constantly saying clear filters but the filters are always clean. What’s more the dryer seems SUPER hot which worries me a lot.
Purchased in August 2017 for $1,400.00.
Fingers crossed the faulty part that was fixed, stops the error beeping
Update from below review:
Miele contacted me regarding my below review and after speaking with a lovely lady called Mandy, she agreed to have our dryer looked at but at Miele's cost, they kindly agreed to waive the service call out fee (normally $179) we had a fantastic technician called Paul come out and service our dryer, he shared some helpful tips regarding our Miele appliances and found a fault with our dryer and replaced the part and the dryer is now working again. Happy to change my review and now provide a 4/5 review based off the fix ...and amazing customer experience shown to us. Your technician Paul was highly professional and truly went above and beyond with his customer service towards us. After not having the best experience with our dryer not working correctly, Miele you have done yourselves proud and we are very happy customers again. Paul is an asset to your company and is the definition of what providing customer service is all about. Take a bow and be proud. Waste of $1200! Won’t dry clothes properly, when finished a cycle, the clothes would always still feel damp and not dried.
Used Miele equipment for >25 years - this dryer is without doubt the worst-designed Miele unit I have ever used. Constant alarms, completely incapable of drying domestic sheets, ludicrous web-based command/control "feature", no possibility of just using a "last used setting". Worthless!
Purchased in February 2019 for $1,000.00.
Worst dryer on earth
DO NOT BUY this dryer. As stated by reviews below, this dryer could not dry ANYTHING. The 'clear the airway' message and non-stop beep always come up and it fail to dry anything properly. We always ended up needing to hang dry the cloth post-dryer which is very very very annoying but if we don't all our cloth will become stink because it didn't dry properly. For larger item it's even more hopeless, we could NEVER dry our bedsheet or doona cover in this dryer (even for single bed!) and have to travel to coin laundry shop to dry it. We tried contacting Miele service team and was told that we need to pay $300+ call out fee just go get them here. Based on the review here, I think I would rather not waste my time getting the technician out.
TDA150C - Danger Waste of Money
Having looked on the Internet it seems that I’m not the only one having issues with this machine - TDA150C. It was purchased together with a washing machine 3 years ago - the machine gets a 10/10. However the dryer a 0/10. Sorry had to press a star button to submit this review and there was no zero star!
Constant ‘clean the airway’ light together with beeping. As we live out bush (drought conditions) its only been used a dozen times and honestly only fit to be used as an anchor.
I’ve had numerous appliances from Miele - dishwashers, washing machines, vacuum cleaner, ovens and boy does this one fail.
Loved that Miele only charged us $50 for deliver out bush but...........
Miele TDA150-C Dryer
If there is a zero star, i would have given to this product. Purchased this dry from Miele clearance centre and been having the same issue as other reviewers. The "clean the airway" light would come up randomly during the drying and it will beep non stop. I cleaned the filter every time after the wash and I even washed the condenser unit according to the manual. It seems like this is the common issue with this model and for a brand that markets themselves as making reliable and durable products, this is quite the irony. The product should be recalled instead of selling them in their clearance center so hopefully the next customer would take the products and not complaint. This kind of business practice is not what I would expect from Miele.
Miele TDA150-C Dryer
What a huge disappointment. I purchased a washer dryer pigeon pair in late 2015.
These were replaced as I had nothing but problems with the dryer and washing machine within the warranty period.
Miele replaced the products with what they advised were equivalent products, however after 2 years I have had to spend a ridiculous amount of money to replace heater bank, control board & relay.
I literally only use it to dry towels and could not do consecutive loads in a row as it beeps like crazy telling me to clean the lint filter.
So, I clean all...
If I could give it zero I would
I have had this dryer for about 2 years now and if you do more than one load a day it could up with a alarm that beeps non stop saying that the lint filter need cleaning, this is not the case the lint filter could be brand new and the alarm would still go off. Its a know problem with no fix. Im looking to chuck it out and buy something that works. Cost $1300 what a rip off.
Can’t even dry a pair of socks !!!
Purchased this dryer 2 months ago and it can’t even dry a pair of socks !!!
It beeps constantly for no apparent reason and Miele support won’t even allow me to talk to a tech but instead I have to take 4hours off work to be available to show the tech that the machine doesn’t work.
Do not buy Miele!!!
After purchasing Miele products for the past 20 years and replacing our old dryer, I now find that I have exactly the same issues with the the dryer as others have reported. The dryer beeps and the warning light illuminates. Despite cleaning filters and emptying container, plus frequent cleaning of the condensing unit, it is impossible to dry laundry. Feeling very frustrated and let down with this appliance.
Very disappointed! Do not buy!
We’ve had this dryer for less than 3 years, and it’s driving us insane. Every time we need to run it, it’s like gambling...will it beep or not. It beeps almost every time, with the clean airways warning. We clean it each time, and it doesn’t help.
It’s very disappointing especially given the price tag. We wish we saw the reviews prior to purchasing. I don’t normally write reviews but I feel like this time it’s necessary so that others don’t end up making the same wrong decision we did.
