Twin Dos no going back!
Expensive but certainly the best machine there is. The twin dos system and the smart modes are fantastic. Just so easy to use and no mucking around. Everything every time is washed perfectly. We also have the matching condenser dryer. Its also outstanding, if you can afford it make sure you get a condenser dryer. Considering how well it works, the build quality, and the warranty it is actually fairly good value for money.

The best washing machine money can buy!
This Miele washing machine symbolises the ultimate option for washing and laundry care! The machine comes with an enormous 9kg capacity which I would say even a family of 4 would find it hard to fill up. It comes in a white finish with a stainless steel door, the white finish is done with a special enameling which will protect it from rust or scratches for life. The detergent draw features compartments for main wash and pre wash detergent, as well as fabric softener. Miele also have introduced a compartment for specials capsules which can be b...ought from them, these are for specialised washing applications such as for washing wool or sportswear. We haven’t had any caps to test but we would say for very specialised garments, they would be worth it. At the bottom right of the machine, there is a compartment for Miele’s ‘TwinDos’ technology. TwinDos is another detergent system that can be bought from Miele. It consists of two containers that contain detergents, additives and bleaches all in one. The first container named ‘ultra phase 1’ is a colour detergent, the second Container named ‘ultra phase 2’ acts as a stain booster, and an oxegyn bleach. Depending on the colour of laundry selected and the soling level selected, the machine will use a combination of both to produce the perfect result, when washing whites, more ultraphse 2 will be used to ultra phase 1. As it is an oxegyn bleach, it can be used on coloured clothes so rest assured your garments won’t change colour. The machine then works out the correct dosage. The detergent itself is expensive but I have to say it is the best detergent I have used and I plan to continue using it. Refills can be bought online from Miele or where you purchased your machine. If you don’t want to use Miele liquid detergent, you can even refill the containers with your own detergents or fabric softeners, just specify this in the machine settings afterwards, I found this very pleasing to see! Please note that this is a completely optional function and you may use regular detergent. In a very generous action from Miele, all machines come with a months supply of TwinDos and our machine even came with a voucher for another 6 months supply! The machine runs very quietly when not spinning, and can be placed near a bedroom without disturbance. An extremely useful feature that I found to be only exclsuive to Miele, is the 'SingleWash' option. It allows one or two peices of clothing to be washed, without using the amount of water or energy a full cycle would use, but without sacrificing cleaning performance. I have been using this feature almost every day as there's always those few pieces of laundry that cant be washed with the main load! The machine has no physical control buttons, only one touch sensitive button to turn it on and off, the rest of the controls are used via touch, extremely similar to using a phone or tablet and very simple to use. There are a total of 25 wash programmes that go from everything from cottons and delicates, to silks and pillows, anything you can think of, there is a programme for it! There are a multitude of options that can be added to the cycles. From extra rinses, pre washes and soaks, options for allergy sufferers, a quiet wash option, a eco option that will make the cycle run longer but will use less electricity, an intensive option which will tumble the clothes more, an extra gentle option to reduce tumbling, a quick option to reduce cycle times, and a pre ironing function that will introduce steam into the drum to reduce wrinkles in shirts. Miele also has a stains option, where up to 23 stains can be selected, the machine will then adjust the programme to suit the stain, and remove it. Temperature options go from a cold wash all the way up to 90 degrees. Spin speeds range from no spin or a rinse hold, all the way up to 1600rpm, the fastest I have seen in any machine to date, keep in mind however the maximum spin speed is determined by the programme your using, for example the delicates cycle only goes up to a maximum of 900rpm. There are an enormous amount of helpful features that make this washing machine easier and more intuitive to use. Miele’s honeycomb drum technology, which has been in its machines for many years now, ensures your clothes are well cared for and delicate garments can be washed with peace of mind. A LED light in the drum ensures you don’t leave any laundry behind, and is handy at night. The ECOFeedback feature allows you to see exact energy and water usages for your wash, Mobile control and WiFi connectivity allow you to control the washing machine from your mobile phone with the Miele@home app, this will also send you mobile notifications when cycles are finished. The washing assistance feature helps you determine what cycle is best for you based on what clothes or items you are washing. There is a maintenance programme that runs at 85 degrees which kills bacteria and cleans the machine, (this should be run once every few weeks or every month without detergent) there is also a maintenance option for the TwinDos containers. A delay start feature allows you to delay the start of a programme for up to 24h. In the first 5-10 minutes of a cycle, there is an option to pause the programme and add laundry you may have forgotten. A beeping sound will also play at the end of cycles to alert you when a programme is finished, this however can be turned off if you like. Helpful indicators will appear in certain scenarios for example if you have added too much detergent, or you need to run the maintenance programme. Machine cleaning performance is by far, the best I have ever seen in any washing machine, even better then my previous Miele combined with the TwinDos detergent. While this is an extremely expensive option, it represents the most opulent way of washing clothes. And as is with all Miele products, it is designed, built and tested to last for 20 years of use, this is a promise you can count on. If you do for whatever reason have a problem with your machine, Miele have great customer service and machine technicians which can assist you. For anybody wanting the most premium option for laundry, I would undoubtedly recommend this over anything in the market, I would also highly recommend cheaper Miele washing machines for people looking for Miele quality at a lower price. My family has been using Miele appliances for the last 30 years and we have always been able to rely on them for everything we have needed.
