Miele WDB020 Washing Machine with 7kg Load Capacity 1400rpm Spin Speed and A+++ Energy Rating

The WDB020 is Miele's entry point washing machine and part of the W1 classic line. With many Miele washing machines having a price point of up to and exceeding œ1000, this offer represents incredible value. Wash loads from 1- 7kg load with a 1400 spin.

Elegant and understated on the outside, like most Miele machines it's on the inside that the good stuff happens. Devoid of perhaps unnecessary features such as a fancy colour screen display or wireless connectivity, this machine is a quiet testament to simplicity and design.

Behind the door, lies Miele's patented honeycomb drum. This unique drum design is designed to cushion garments as they glide around the machine and offer improved drainage. The outside of the drum is just as smooth as the interior; this is tested by running a silk cloth over it; if it catches, it gets remade so no snagged clothes!

Miele washing machines are designed and tested by being opened and closed 60,000 times, half of which are done with more force as a "slam" test. Another feature is that Miele produce one of the few machines on the market that will allow you to manually open the door lock, granting you access to the contents of the drum in the event of a power cut.

The WDB020 handles washing so delicately that you can be sure even super-fine lace is taken care of. The specialised drum is suspended in a cast iron cradle far more durable than the concrete ones found in some other brands that can eventually crack and shake apart.

Miele machines are designed and tested with 20 years use in mind, based along the lines of running 5 programs a week on an average of 2 hours a cycle and this still applies on this machine only though it's a starting price point machine.

The control panel is clearly laid out, retaining the classic Miele look with the core programs on a rotary dial. It's easy to see what the programs and the current settings are.

Turning the dial to any of the programs switches the machine on with the display springing to life with a nice orange glow, and you can increase and decrease the brightness to your personal taste as well.

An audible beep is emitted to confirm a selection has been pressed on the touch pad (which can be turned off) and confirmed selections will also increase in brightness as a visual aid. The predicted cycle time adjusts accordingly to reflect the length of the program chosen and what options have been changed.

As with all washing machines targeted to be environmentally friendly, wash times tend to run longer and whilst this enables the machine to give good thorough results and being cheaper to run sometimes you need to get something done quicker so a touch of the short button brings the duration of the washing cycle down.

There are plenty of programs to select from, ranging from everyday wash tasks to anti stain selection and standalone spin and drain. Most programs offer some form of customisation with the machine allowing you to adjust features such as temperature and spin speed. Don't worry about putting the wrong combination of programs in for example you can't accidently set a high spin speed on a delicate program as the machine will switch off the touch button lights and disable certain selections when combined with different programs.

Wash results are great using a variety of detergents but the performance is even better when you use Miele's unique cap dosing. In the detergent drawer is a compartment specifically designed to take a range of custom detergents and solutions offered by Miele. These capsules are designed to do more specialised jobs than most everyday supermarket detergents. Capsules are available as the following 6 special detergents (Sport, Down, Outdoor, Wool Care, Silk Care, Proofing agent), 3 softeners (Aqua, Nature, Cocoon) as well as a booster for stubborn soiling. Setup is easy: just choose your capsule, pop it in the dispenser compartment and press the relevant capsule button and you're well on your way to amazing wash results. The detergent department drawer also has a patented self-cleaning system with water blasting away residue that tends to build up in most machines.
