Miele Tutorial Needed
Hi all, I'm trying to learn how to get the most out of my new (to me) Miele 1213 Washer/1413 Dyer. This is a 2.5 cf, 220/240 volt combo.
I am looking for suggested cycle/temps for both. I have scoured the manuals, but would still like "real use" recommendations.
With the washer, I am noticing that (unlike my previous units) when the wash load is done, the clothes are still warm (or warmer) depending on the temp cycle even if I select cold. Are the rinses all done in warm water (unless you opt for no heat)? Even the "cold" water wash achieves 80-ish degree temps.
My biggest problem, however is with the dryer and WRINKLES! Normally I run mixed loads separated by colors (always) and fabric type (when required). When I did combo dark loads which included jeans, polos and hubs' dress shirts, all had wrinkles when done. I tried a lower heat setting first time, and clothes were still damp and wrinkled. I selected more heat and clothes were dry at the end of the cycle but the wrinkles were still there and the collars and button front shirts were all kinked. I have not ever had this problem before even if I "baked" my laundry on the highest temps. I am used to timed cycles (my previous had a moisture sensor,too, but I didn't use it), with an auto cool down during the last 10 mins.
Any examples or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you so much. I am looking forward to learning to use this machine properly.
