Miele WT2670WPM

Miele have worked hard in order to ensure that their combo units are enduring and reliable. Their units have been put through many tests to ensure top-notch and trouble-free operating and performance for many years. Their attention to even the tiniest details is evident in all parts of their combos. The best Miele machine I have found so far is however the model: Miele W3038

What we have here is the Miele WT2670WPM washer/dryer combo – a combo that receives both good and bad reviews. Some of the features included in this unit are integrated dryer, fabric softener dispenser, electronic controls and delay start, to name a few. Let’s check out the main details.

Pros and Cons:
Positives:
  • Quiet operation.
  • Start-up timer.
  • Superior washing with different wash cycles.
  • Incredibly convenient.
  • Gentle on clothes.
  • Economical and fast.
Negatives:
  • Small capacity.
  • Expensive.
  • Detergent residue is sometimes left on fine sheets.
  • Complicated to use.
  • Doesn’t dry properly.
Negatives common to all combos:
  • There is no exterior lint trap for the dryer. The lint tends to collect around the rubber seal and you have to empty that once a month depending on the frequency of use.
  • The clothes need to be free to tumble in order to dry completely. Fill only half of the drum if you’re going to use the dry function.
  • Noisy water pump that expels the water from the machine – although active only intermittently during the wash and rinse cycle.
  • Produces a bit of heat.

Conclusion: Families, renters and busy people alike will be pretty satisfied with the functionality and dependability of this unit. The handy selection of the washing/drying cycles allows you to wash and dry all kinds of fabrics easily. However, if you ask me, there are way better washer dryer combos for the same price, so if Miele isn’t fulfilling your expectations, don’t worry; you’re not the only one. All in all, the washing part of this combo is great, but the same cannot be said about the drying part.
