Heavy Soil is now back to Pre-Wash on W48xx Miele :)

After me nagging and nagging, one of my dearest friends finally got rid of her nasty old, water hogging top loader Maytag.

She LOVES them. I've been spending A LOT of time helping her learn to use them. This is almost as bad as me tyring to teach her to grasp iDrive in her new BMW a few months that was a real challenge. LOL

She took delivery of a brand new W4842 and T9802 Miele set.

It has annoyed me for years, that Miele called Pre-Wash "Heavy Soil" on the front control panel. It is now back to being called Pre-Wash!!! YAY! Miele must have finally listened to customer's complaints!!

Mine says Prewash on the front control panel but Heavy Soil on the detergent tray. This is on my W4842 that I received February 2011 (in Canada). What does your friend's detergent tray say?

It says prewash, prewash.....just as it did years ago!

My W4842 says PreWash on the control panel, and Heavy Soil on the detergent tray, just like @livebetter's machine. Mine was made in February 2011 and purchased in April 2011.
