Miele dishwasher

Miele utilised several eco-design strategies when designing their range of dishwashers:

The product lifespan is maximised whilst ensuring optimal service quality is retained:

  • the dishwashers are designed and tested for 8,500 wash cycles, which is equivalent to one wash a day for 20 years.

Products are designed for durability:

  • parts such as door latches are tested to be opened and shut 60,000 times
  • Novotronic / electronic controls means no moving parts so less wear and tear

They are also designed with upgradability in mind:

  • PC updates allow them to be reprogrammed in line with future updates and new programmes.

Miele has also taken steps to reduce energy consumption:

  • it has AAA energy rating on all top models
  • a Miele dishwasher is much more economical than washing by hand - to wash a full load of crockery on the universal 65°C programme every day will, over a year, save:
    • 400 KWh of electricity (worth £30),
    • 7,000 litres of water (equivalent to 40 baths)
    • 500 hours (3 weeks) of your time.

Water conservation was also a consideration for the designers:

  • in certain models it is possible to wash dishes in the top baskets only.
  • water is diverted to the middle and upper spray arms to wash quickly, thoroughly and, above all, economically.
  • it uses only 11 litres of water and 0.75 kWh of electricity and is like having two dishwashers in one.
  • the water softener can be set to deal with all degrees of water hardness, so it operates at the appropriate level, thus reducing salt consumption.
  • what’s more, the dishwashers only regenerate the softener when it actually becomes necessary rather than after every wash cycle.
  • the top of the range models have a new intelligent ECO sensor:
    • using a light beam, the machine assesses the amount of soiling in the wash water and alters the programme length and amount of rinse water accordingly.

Finally, to facilitate recycling at end of life all casings are clearly marked by material type.
