I hate, hate, hate this dryer

published

I do not like this dryer one bit!!!!! I do not use the dryer much, but when I do it takes for EVER for the items to dry. Yesterday, it took me hours to dry a set of Sheets, which I have to dry separately because the items get so twisted and tangled together that I’ve found I have to seperate them, even then one sheet comes out in a ball with wet patches. It is absolutely ridiculous to have a top of the range dryer that is so useless.
Steer clear of this dryer.

Purchased in May 2018 at Winning Appliances.

No longer working after less than 2 years but fixed promptly

published

We have a busy household with 4 kids and decided to pay a premium for a Miele... it’s been less than 2 years and whilst we use it frequently, I expected it to last longer than this!

It seems to be blowing hot air but not tumbling. Back to drying clothes for 4 kids on the line until it’s fixed!

Edit - a few days after - a Miele rep contacted me to organise a service call. The communication was great and the work performed under warranty with no fuss. I wasn’t expecting this and a great thumbs up to the Miele team.

Purchased for $1,700.00.

Miele Not Dry Enough

published

The Miele does not fully dry my clothes.

After spending top dollar for a top drawer heat pump product. I am sufficiently disappointed with a dryer that does not completely dry my clothes. It's not fit for purpose if it cannot fully dry clothes which is its main function. To solve this, I often have to send my clothes in 2-3 times to get it reasonably dry.

Please look elsewhere if you want a dryer that dries clothes properly.

Questions & Answers

Matt L.asked

Is it possible to reverse the door opening side on this machine?

I’m not sure, I just had a look and took a couple of photos but can’t upload.
I hate this particular dryer and would not recommend it at all. Sheets get into a tangled mess, and dry in spots. Do your homework before you consider buying this dryer.

Thanks Joyce, I’ve already got one and am have already pulled to door off. Seems the machine itself is easy to change the hinge and lock but the door seems to only work one way. Just wanted to see if I was missing something here as it seems strange that it would be “half” possible.

Miele, you should publicise your responses here so prospective buyers can better evaluate the Miele warranty service and resolution reached, including the time frame. I'm sure those posting would be happy to consent to this. These are not a cheap machine, they need to come with a 5 year warranty more in line with AEG, Australian consumer law and buyer expectations.

Does the Heat Pump mean its a condenser dryer and the moisture is plumbed into water waste pipes so you don't need a separate moist air exhaust like with cheaper dryers?

I believe so - mine has a water pipe plumbed into the laundry trough.

Yes. Heat pump dryers are a type of condenser dryer. The regular condenser dryer uses a heating element like those cheaper dryers you mentioned and hence use more electricity. So a heat pump dryer works sort of like a reverse cycle ac unit (it’s more efficient than a fan heater of the same size). But to answer your question, yes it does drain the water out so no venting of humid air is required. I have mine drain into the laundry sink.

Dave

Hi Mark, Yes both answer above are correct. The condensate (water from the drying clothes) are either collected in a "built in plastic container" which can be emptied out. OR you can directly connect the hose into the drainage pipe.

Hope that helps you out.

This model is not so good as was explained in my earlier complaint. Choose another model which may fair better.
