Thanks for reporting a problem. We'll attach technical data about this session to help us figure out the issue. Which of these best describes the problem?
Any other details or context?
Hi folks I’m Chris Wurlitzer from Yale appliance and lighting in Boston Massachusetts. Today we are going to talk about Miele dishwashers. For more detailed information about this and other subjects, please follow the links below.
Who is Miele?
So Miele’s a family owned company in Germany and unlike other manufacturers they build almost everything in house. The only thing that’s not made in house on their dishwashers are the wheels on the racks and those are actually made in a factory right near by the Miele factory. They are also one of the least repaired brands that we sell so you can buy with confidence knowing that you’re buying a very good product.
What are some of the key features to a Miele dishwasher?
Well, some of the big things; they’re very efficient, they’re energy star rated, they’re also extremely quiet, but the biggest thing is the silverware tray. They have a full rack up on top so all your silverware can be separated, you don’t want any spooning happening because then your spoon won’t actually get clean. A lot of other manufactures have started doing this as well but Miele does it the best because they have a full wash arm on top instead of a little spinner so it gives you a better quality wash on that silver wear.
What’s unique about Miele drying cycle?
Miele has fresh air drying system that actually takes air from the room and circulates it around the outside of the drum. This speeds up the condensation dry, so it does a better job than any other European brand.
What’s different in the full Miele lineup?
Well as you go up in price you’ll also get quieter, more cycles, cutlery tray and better adjustability on the racking. Also appearance wise, you can either have hidden controls, panel ready or exposed controls.
