Forget Miele, just get TL Speed Queen and have no problems!
After much deliberation over miele vs sq we bought sq tl and love it. It is fast and the clothes are really clean. It is super simple to operate. The warranty is 3 yrs and the price is 1/3 of miele if you count the extended warranty needed with hte purchase.
Why are people still buying mieles after all the problems on this site and the poor warranty provided by manufacturer?
Just get SQ and set it and forget it.
