General info

1.has a hot water connection
Miele W5872
A hot water connection means that you can provide the machine with hot water from your main hot water supply. This can be faster than an internal heater and can save money if you have a cheap and efficient water heater.
2.has top energy efficiency rating
Miele W5872
The appliance is either Energy Star Certified, or has an EU energy efficiency rating of A++ or A+++. This means it consumes around 20-30% less energy than is required by the minimum local standards for energy efficiency.


The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.has aqua stop
Miele W5872
Aqua stop machines have a special mechanical system which cuts off the water flow into the tub if a fault occurs with the inlet pipe.


We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.


We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.


1.front loading machine
Miele W5872
Front loading machines are good as you can use the space above and sometimes stack a dryer on top. In general front loading machines use less energy, using less water by only partly filling the drum and obtaining higher spin speeds which clean without requiring as much heat.
2.Has a transparent door
Miele W5872
With a transparent door you can look inside the machine and see what laundry is inside.
3.Is stackable
Miele W5872
Stackable machines are ideal if you have limited space as you could stack a tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.
4.has a dot matrix display
Miele W5872
Dot matrix displays can show important text or graphics using a matrix of lights or mechanical indicators like the display on a calculator.
5.Has a honeycomb drum
Miele W5872
The slightly sculptured surface structure of the honeycomb drum creates a thin film of water or air which gently cushions and protects your laundry.
6.There is the option to adjust the height of the machine
Miele W5872
You can adjust the height of the machine which means that if the floor is uneven you can level it out.


1.number of cycle programs


With a wider range of programs to choose from you can be more specific and choose the best, most economic program for your needs.
2.maximum spin speed


A faster spin speed means you can get things cleaner with a lower temperature of the water. Using a fast spin also extracts water, meaning that the clothes come out nearly dry. Generally, anything over 1,000 rpm is very good.
3.laundry capacity


More weight capacity helps if you want to wash something heavy like curtains. A traditional household machine can hold around 6kg, so with a machine much bigger you may waste energy using it when only half full.
4.has delay start option
Miele W5872
With a delay start option you can schedule the machine to begin at a later time. You can also set the machine to wash at night if your electricity is cheaper outside of peak times.
5.quickest cycle


A really quick cycle can be a great option if you are in a hurry.
6.noise level wash


With a lower noise level for washing you can worry less about disruption and may be able to do a wash at night or while reading.


1.has self cleaning detergent drawer
Miele W5872
The detergent drawer is washed automatically to prevent a build up of old detergent.
2.has an end of cycle signal
Miele W5872
The machine will let you know when it is finished with an alarm or even by playing a tune.
