I am now on my third machine, as Miele have replaced the other two because they couldn't fix the faults. My third replacement has now started the cycle of doom. As usual engineers are very polite, thought it might have been fixed finally in Nov 2012, but alas once it starts it's downward spiral of non performance on the drying cycle there is no return. I am now been charged for call outs, and take great exception at being part of the Miele RD department at my expense. Just don't bother... (read more)

I've had this machine for nearly seven years and it has been brilliant. I love it. I have a husband and three children so it gets lots of use. If you remember to use the Rinse Out Flyff function sometimes to get rid of fluff from drying clothes and if you occasionally run a wash on 95 degrees to blast the scale out of the system it will run and run. My old Zanussi had the ability to run the drying cycle straight after the wash and with this machine you have to manually set the dryer when the... (read more)

The build on the Miele WT2670 is impressive and we had hoped by paying 40% more for this machine over a comparable machine by another manufacturer that we could count on it to function, trouble-free for a good while. We were wrong--it failed just after the warranty expired. We plowed another £450 over two years into service agreements with Miele. Their technicians are hopeless (no repair has succeeded on the first visit, one technician refused to move the machine without my help for fear... (read more)

Bought this washer dryer from a premium manufacturer, expecting it to be reliable and last a long time. When it works, it is excellent - but unfortunately, it seldom works. It has had over £1000 of parts and still won't wash and dry without failing. Likes: quiet and washes and dries small loads well. Dislikes: Hopelessly unreliable. I have bought Miele appliances for years (9 so far). This is the last I will every buy. Only buy this appliance if you like wet laundry, bleeping sounds and... (read more)

So far so good, very well built washes and dries faultlessly.
Interior lamp is nice and the load indicator is a useful facility, the programmes can take a bit of getting your head around but after reading the manual (which i should do on a lot of things but normally don't bother) it becomes clear.
Yes it was very expensive so time will tell if it was worth the money but at the moment very happy with it. (read more)

Rubbish! good job it came with 5yr warranty. 18 call outs in 12 months, amazingly repairs need re-repairing the next day, now I'm after a replacement. Will stick to cheaper brand in the future, waiting up to 2 weeks for an engineer is not acceptable with washing building up. Will never buy again. No good things to say. Does not even deserve one star but can't add a review without clicking them. (read more)

Previously had a Siemens washer dryer for 12 years hich was absolutely superb. Chose a Miele for build quality and reputation. Pity about the washing aspect of the machine. My daughters £250 washer washes better than this.The clothes especially towels come out like cardboard. I've tried every programme, different spin speeds to no avail.Sent 3 e-mails to Miele asking for advice but never had a response.Tried both powder and liquid detergent.The machine cost £1300 and basically it's a bag of...

We purchased the Miele washer dryer when it first came out in December 2005,Worked ok for a couple of years but then the problems started.
We had to have all the internal plastic drain parts replaced and the pipe work due to furring up,Was shocked to see how bad it was(This is in fact a design defect).
Next thing to replace the year after was the ball valve as water was getting back in to the drum during drying.
Now Jan 2011 and more problems,Engineer been 3 times and still not drying... (read more)

I have had this machine for 4.5 years. Miele were recommended to me as very good quality washer dryers. I paid around £800 online for the machine with the offer of a free upgrade to a 5 year warranty upon returning a form. After 2 years the main circuit board was replaced (worth £550) and now the drying cycle smells of burnt plastic. I have to wait 3 weeks to pay £90 for an engineer to probably tell me that because they have no record of an extended warranty I will have to pay hundreds... (read more)

Get used to an engineer - faults within the first year and often beyond. Expensive replacement parts and callout fees; Miele remarkably unhelpful. Machine rattles around - even on a level surface - like a bag of spanners, and the heat sensor keeps tripping (it's inside the top - you'll get used to it, and if you don't it'll cost you £90 a time!) and, after 5 years, the electrical spade terminals to the top heating element have sheared due to vibration. They claim 20 years - yes, but at many... (read more)

Miele Model WT2670, waste of money, have had for 4 years, parts need replacing every 6 months, engineers clueless. Tend to fix one prob then within a week we are calling them again. Thank goodness I had a 5yr warranty. Previously had a hotpoint washer dryer, never had a fault ever until after 6 years and was beyond economical repair hence buying the most expensive model on the market expecting fantastic results. When this warranty has run out I will be buying a cheaper model, because sadly... (read more)

I bought a WT2670 washer dryer in 2007 and have had nothing but trouble with it from day one. The drying function was faulty and after half a dozen visits the service department decided that the machine needed replacing. So after a year, in 2008, my new machine arrived. It worked OK for a year but the drying function has stopped working again. The service engineer told me today after having fixed the dryer that I shouldn't use the "smoothing program or warm air program too much". After he... (read more)

I own the previous model (the WT945) and bought it after believing Miele's advertising slogan, the "ultimate washer dryer", and assuming that a high specification must be built into the enormous price... It recently failed for the second time and I was faced with another bill of close to £500 to repair it. After much grumbling, Miele reduced this to a little over £400 - but I've still spent over £2k on a machine that Miele NOW tell me isn't suitable for family use (quote from the Miele... (read more)

Five years ago I bought a Miele washer dryer costing around £1000. The dryer didn't work from day 1 - John Lewis kindly replaced the machine. Five years later (with very little use - washing for two people and the dryer hardly ever used) the dryer has broken. Miele want £92 to find out why. I have had a Miele extractor fan which performed well, but the design was unpracticable. I think I might as well buy cheaper machine and replace every 5 years. (read more)

Bought it on a Tuesday from Hughes Direct (avoid! they started quibbling after I reported a problem 1 day after purchase, and have given me endless grief).
It was delivered on Thursday. After the first couple of loads I was horrified to see water on the floor, from just under the front left . Checked the connections, all OK; checked the filter on the left bottom, all dry; must be the machine. Seemed to start after I used the dryer, but continued a slow leak even when water isolated.

My Miele WT2670 machine broke down twice within the first 3,5 years, the first time just after 15 months, which involved 3 call-outs including a part already needed replacing. Second time 2 years later, fan belt problem, just not acceptable for a £1,000 machine.

We were very suprised to see the F53 fault code on our Miele WT2670 as believed Miele to be reliable and efficient we are now left with at least a 10 day wait for a Miele engineer to be in the area. If you're going to buy one just make sure you get at least a 5 year extended warranty. (read more)

It is obvious that this WT2670 washer dryer will last a long time, over 5 years in fact, due in part to the excellent mechanisms used within this product itself by miele.
It coped very well with 3 months unwashed clothing and more within the last 5 days since we received it from Dixons. If you are looking for a bargain price please buy from Dixons who will deliver and install the product for around £870 including VAT which is over £129 cheaper than other retailers nationally.

Purchased a wt2670 from Miele about 12 months ago, used about 3 times a week, still running like new, when purchased it came with a 5 year parts and labour warranty, but as I sent the warranty card back to miele within 14 days miele then gave me an extra 5 years. Excellent wash and drying results.
The drum is light, which is very useful. Compared to hotpoint/hoover which I have had in the past the Miele is simply outstanding. (read more)

Very well built, the Miele WT2670 is quiet and stable even at 1600 rpm, economical/efficient energy ratings. Excellent wash and drying results. The load indicator is a useful feature together with the drum lighting. Easy to follow handbook instructions also the LED display gives you the appropriate prompts. The anti leak system gives peace of mind (especially if you have wooden floors). As with all Miele products they are expensive but a cut above the rest. (read more)

I purchased a Miele WT2670 washer dryer from the Co-op, and it was delivered with a dented side panel, marked top and no tools. After a day the rubber drum seal leaked, and after 2 weeks the machine stopped at wash with no final spin. Still no tools. They came to fit a new side panel but they had the wrong one. It is being replaced next week.
It seems like I have paid for a Miele when an Indesit may have been a wiser selection! (read more)
