Difference between Miele models
Hello. I have been shopping for a second washer/dryer set for my home. I was between Asko and Miele. A long talk with the salesman at the appliance store has dissuaded me from considering Asko. Now I am between the Miele w3033, 2.52 cu ft and the w4842, 4 cu ft. The 3033 is about $100 more than the 4842 and 1.48 cu ft smaller. The set I will be keeping downstairs is a 4 ft LG. I am hoping one of the Miele wizards on here can answer a few questions for me.
What are the differences, other than size, between the two models? The 3033 seems even more tank like but it could just be the size.
Is 2.52 cu ft large enough to wash clothing for a family of 5?
Will the 4842 perform well if runnng 1/2 loads? This is big issue for my LG which has made me consider a smaller unit.
I have a dryer that I can use with the washer but I am wondering if there are any advantages to the Miele dryer? These will be upstairs and not seen by guests so matching is not important to me.
Thanks in advance for any input / opinion.
