How good are the Miele front loading dryers?

schnauzerApril 8, 2011

I want to purchase a Miele Front loading washer, wondering if I should get the matching dryer or get another brand of dryer? Opinions?

I have the T9802 Miele dryer, and I think it is the BEST dryer I have ever owned or used. My Miele W4842 washing machine is great, but I think there are other machines on the market by LG, Electrolux, Bosch or maybe even Fisher & Paykel that could possibly clean as well (but the build quality and longevity will be far less than Miele).

But, nothing compares to the way a Miele dryer cares for clothing. The reverse tumble feature is the reason that I will always own a Miele dryer. I never have to deal with sheets or items rolled up into a tight, moist ball. Miele ELECTRIC dryers reverse tumble from the very beginning all the way thru the cool down. The only residential gas dryer Miele makes is the T9820/T9822. It also reverse tumbles, but not as much as the electric version. I owned the T9820, and it was for me very problematic and a real disappointment. When I switched to a T9800 and then a T9802...for me the difference was night and day. I will only own electric dryers. Good Luck!!

From the anecdotal reports here and elsewhere, the Miele electric dryer does appear to work better and has higher overall satisfaction than the gas counterpart. I have the T9802 electric dryer and am very pleased with it overall. I'm not too fond of the lint filter. Also, if you stuff your washer to the full 7-8kg capacity and then transfer all of those clothes to the dryer, you will have wrinkled clothes. The dryer cannot dry a packed load without wrinkling, unfortunately. The only solution to this problem would be a larger dryer. But if you fill your washer 3/4 full and leave some room at the top, you shouldn't have any wrinkling issues. On those occasions that you do run a packed washer load, split it into two loads for your dryer.
