Note: put washer in a shallow spill tub and add a battery powered water alarm ($25 total) to avoid nasty surprises.
Does anyone here have Miele experience?
We're on a new well/septic system, so really don't need to worry about water use.
while maybe true, how do you dispose of your waste water from the washer ? NEVER let it go directly into laundry tub or a stand pipe. Wash water and the lint it carries is one of the primary killers of a septic system.We drain ours through a food colander(in the laundry tub) which removes the lint.
We always used a lint filter on the washer before the septic system. Worked great as long as you kept an eye on it. It was also amazing how much got trapped in there http://www.septicsafe.com/washing-machine-filter/
I have....Perhaps consider calling the Miele repair center and finding out what their callout fee is and how long before they can come out (maybe invent a fictitous problem).
I'll have to check that out. We've got a 500 gallon septic tank and it's very clean in the sense it doesn't stink; moreover it's never been serviced (pumped) since being installed 15 years ago. Instead of treating it with chemicals, we flush down some cut up pork liver every month.
LOL, it's not your septic tank you need to be concerned about, rather your leach bed.

The idea of thE filter is it keeps it out of the weep holes in the leach field piping, as well as the pump.
Wow, thanks for the advice about washer lint filters re: septic systems.I had no idea.
Careful now, it all starts with an innocent request for a recommendation and then you end up like these guys.... https://youtu.be/jmmmxI-Y_6U
When shopping for top loaders check to make sure you and wife can reach to the bottom of the tub (high capacity means deep tubs). Check with a reputable repair guy as to what brands he'd recommend. Some companies (like LG) do a very poor job stocking replacement parts. Some just aren't reliable.
I do not like the fancy electronic controls that take 5 minutes of pre-wash nonsense before they get down to business. I see it as more things to fail. I miss the simplicity of being able to add a dropped sock once washing has started. I know it is still possible with new machines but you have to know the secret handshake and it disrupts the cycle.
I get bullied enough by my computer, I like my washing machines stupid and obedient.
Maybe I’ll get one of their the vacuum cleaners once the Dyson bites the dust.
