Image Feature

Hot water

(B)Hot water(/B) Some Miele washing machines feature an additional connection for hot water, well water, and rain water. With the hot water connection, you can save energy if domestic water is heated using solar technology, for example. Alternatively, you can make use of well water or rain water. This saves valuable drinking water - which is good for the environment and your wallet.

Image Feature

The patented Miele honeycomb drum *

(B)Perfect laundry care(/B) The web-like surface structure of the Miele honeycomb drum creates a thin film of water between the drum and the laundry. This results in laundry gliding gently and protects the fibers perfectly. "The smaller, smoothly polished shouldered holes in the walls of the drum are also gentle on your textiles and prevent pilling and laddering." Foreign objects such as paper clips no longer end up in the drain pump.

Image Feature

Enamelled front

(B)Top-rate surface finishes(/B) Miele is the only manufacturer of household appliances to enamel the fronts of all washing machines, dryers and washer-dryers. The high-quality enamel is scratch-proof, corrosion-proof, alkaline-resistant, impervious to acids, easy to clean and color-fast.

Image Feature

water protection system

(B)Safety thanks to an additional sensor(/B) water protection system monitors the water intake with a water level sensor. Water intake is stopped automatically if the normal water level is not reached. If there is water leakage inside the machine, the inlet valve inside the machine closes and water in the suds container is pumped away. A float switch in the drip tray also detects leaking water.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
