Which Miele??

mayartSeptember 30, 2012

I have been reading here over the years & had decided that I wanted a Miele washing machine when it came time to get the next one. Our local dealer only has a w4840 (demo), a w4802, and possibly a w4842 if the sales guy can find it at one of their other locations.

Given these choices, if you were me, which would you get & why? I have to make a fairly quick decision & I don't want to chose the wrong one!! Thanks!

Go straight for the W4842 as there were many revisions along the way with the washer. These revisions include, but are not limited to:

  • Revised door latching assembly.

  • Revised tub-to cabinet door gasket retaining ring (nylon versus metal).

  • Newer, larger, and 180 degree flip of the glass porthole.

  • Firmware revisions (that can be uploaded using a proprietary software by an authorized Miele Tech, if applicable to the other two models you have listed).

Thank you, fahrenheit! I just called the salesman we talked to on Saturday & he told me that there are some 4842s that he could get for us. One is a scratch & dent (hopefully with a good price!!). He is still waiting on prices & will call me back when he has them.
I am hoping that the scratch & dent will be a good price, so that I don't have to dither around trying to figure out if I should go for one of the cheaper models.
The w4840 is $1,199.95 and the w4840 is $1,599.95. I'm going to get a pedestal for whichever one I get. Wish that I could use the still new-looking pedestal from my Whirlpool Duet that I will be junking.
Thanks again! :)
