Miele 'setting-up' photos!
With all this well documented--what do you think we forgot?? The locknuts were not tightened down!!! This thing isn't moving, positionally, there is some vibration but no movement, yet! But, they have to be tightened! Do you have any idea what I put those poor guys through to lift a 200 lb. machine up 22"??? What was I thinking!
But--now--that front lip/rim we added is glued and screwed in! Sooo--they will have to lift that "baby" up to get at the back left corner foot! Slump!! And--the "clips" weren't in to be installed either! Slump-slump!
I feel so badly for these guys--they were really nice and I think this may have been one of the first Miele they've installed. This place has just started carrying that line!! I feel awful for them to have to lift this again!!
The good news, page two is that it runs like a dream! I mean you can hardly hear it! It just purrs!
The other concern I have is that the first cycle the guy ran for us was a "normal/warm" cycle. After he did that, I put in a load with the same setting, but no detergent, to see if I had excess in our clothes from before. It wasn't apparent that we did, but they came out seemingly clean. I ran another load, cotton/whites on "ExtraWhite/extended/soak/very warm" and it took 3 hours but, what concerns me is, that my husband was reading the manual and it states that the very first cycle run has to be "Extra White/hot" no detergent, or the subsequent loads will always require more detergent!!!???
Soooo, what have I done now???
