This was bought to replace a failed Beko 10kg front loader (reviewed elsewhere on here.)
We've now had the Miele for about 6 months and it's been used at least three times a week during that time. Overall I'm very happy with the machine. It seems to be very well made and has worked perfectly most of that time. The only hiccup has been with the touch panel a couple of times failing to detect the "Start" button being activated. That's only occurred about three times.
It's quiet and washes the clothes well. Installation was easy even on the slo...ped tile floor in the laundry. (The adjustment range on the feet of the previous Beko wasn't enough to get it level in the same spot. There was no problem with the Miele.) It works fine running off a rainwater tank (with a pressure pump) or the town mains water. The drawer for the detergent and softener is very generously sized so there's less likelihood of mess building up from spillage. There are programmable options for a lot of settings and you can set it to remember your last wash settings - a constant annoyance with the Beko. There are also individual buttons for selecting water temp, spin speed etc. so no toggling left and right arrow buttons is required. Going by Miele's online info this model has a stainless steel tub and drum. It also has four suspension springs and four dampers supporting the tub. That is far superior to some other brands which use plastic tubs and less springs and dampers. The failure on the Beko was due to the plastic tub splitting. It also only had two supporting springs and two dampers.
Purchased in December 2020 at Miele Online Shop for $1,399.00.
