The fabulous new Miele W1901WP has 15 wash programmes and is rated a staggering A+++ for energy efficiency, which is amazing when you consider that it is such a brilliant efficient machine to launder clothes and linens with.
Features smart technology that adds more water or extra rinses etc if required it also has a nice easy use wider than average front loading door making loading and unloading so much easier for my elderly aunt who has just bought one after her ancient Miele could not be repaired any more.
As with the old one you can choose the whole wash cycle step by step, set it to a standard one or choose and save your favourites, which is what we have done. The Miele has 15 choices, but we will probably pretty much stick to the 3 I have easily programmed to the memory using the easy to follow comprehensive instruction booklet.
Another great feature is the carefully developed drum designed to "cushion" the load and cut down on creases and therefore ironing.
There is a quick 20 minute wash for quick freshen up jobs.
My favourite feature is probably the self clean powder drawer! We'll see about that one as not had the machine long enough for a build up - but so far so good!
The machine buzzes when it has finished so if you are waiting, you are alerted that it is time to remove the washing, it has the usual display of where the wash is in the cycle and time left. It is quiet to use, even on a fast spin.
If it is anything like the last Miele, it will be a good and faithful servant that requires little attention. The finish on these machines is very, very good.
The instruction booklet is comprehensive and easy and logical to use.
In conclusion, I love my Bosch, but the Miele really is the Rolls Royce of washing machines and the one to aspire to.
6 MONTHS ON: Machine still looks great, works well and should go on for a few more years!
