The guy knew what he had but needed to let it go. He nearly cried when I drove away with it.

This will join my W1215 as a redundant/ backup unit.

Its at my shop now being tested in various modes.

Machine is really about the same size as my 1215 I think it may be a tiny bit larger Miele claim something like 5.5 vs 5 KG Ive seen for the 1215

to be honest I've seen various measurements on both.

Ive also seen 2 quotes on the theoretical bearing life 15K and 25K. Either will be stout enough for my purposes, but more is always nicer to hear.

This units top spin speed is 200 RPM slower 1400 vs. the blazing 1600 the 1215 belts out.

I wanted to try a new speed queen FL, but its inability to maintain 140 for 10-15 min takes it out of contention for my grooming/ animal needs and I need redundancy.

Im almost a full "Mielehaus"

Miele Marin Vac
2x Miele 373-B's ovens
Miele G851 SC dishwasher
Miele W1215 washer
Miele T1405 dryer
Miele PW6065 washer

Miele lost the mangle to Singer - better machine in our practice we tried them both.
Miele lost the cooktop to Thermador- didnt like the Miele grates (parents had one)
Miele lost the vent to Vent a Hood.

They didn't have a counter depth french door fridge - so the business went to Samsung but I would have bought a Leibherr / Miele if I could find one.

See those washers used and even new all the time. Most American homes and or whatever have a major problem with the power requirements for these washers, that is why they are hard to shift.

I see used 50 HZ machines on ebay all the time.

60HZ machines are quite a bit harder to find.

Isn't the frequency

launderess's profile picture
As all ones have seen were 60hz/for North American market; but rather the hefty 2x 208v-240v 30amp power supply.

Then again may have things muddled as IIRC these "Little Giant" washers can be set for a variety of electrical connections.

You mean a 2x plug one each for the washer and dryer right?

the was he ron has one.

Correct most American homes only have one 220 receptacle for the dryer and have to pull in another 220 line.

It was probably the "covfefe" that's spreading all over the news.

Asko, your comment made me laugh! I started thinking about Covfefe and couldn't remember the context. Damn, it was only yesterday. I guess I'm getting a little jaded to the news!

Congrats on the find!

I'm glad you got a good laugh out of it!  We need to step back and laugh once in a while.

Pw6065 Stainless!

Very nice, I have one of these too in my collection of vintage and commercial machines. Much prefer my Electrolux and Schulthess commercial machines but its still a nice machine. Yours appears to be in better condition than mine, mines missing its plinth and the text has almost completley faded.

PM me if you need any manuals for it as I have them on my laptop.

So Happy for You!

This is my next dream machine, new or used, but I have never seen one offered used. I thought that that there was some restriction on importing them to the USA.  I have lots of 240 volt outlets in my basement.


Do they make a pedestal for it?

I've had one for a year this month

aamassther's profile picture
The PW6065 had been my dream washing machine too. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase one. After a year I'm still discovering different options. This little 6KG capacity machine seems small in capacity but I've been able to wash everything, including my king size down comforters. With the 5000 watt heater, we're guaranteed selected temps (confirmed with infra-red therm). I had an electrician come in and put the correct plugs in for the washer and dryer.
My favourite part is the control we have with these machines- wash temp (mine is set to Celsius, for control in 5 degree increments), rinse temp, prewash length and temp, different water level settings, number of rinses, and among others, the ability set a cold or hot fill.
I'm a caregiver and a massage therapist, so I have a few laundry challenges, this machine gets everything clean first time and quickly. Most cycles are less than an hour.
If you have any questions I'm happy to answer. I'm still amazed at what this machine does.

Yes, they make 2 heights of plinths. They're on the Miele pro site. These are the only pro models that Miele allows for residential use. As far as dryers, they will only allow us to purchase the PT715C condenser dryer, even though they still import the vented for commercial use.

Thanks Chris!

Ill send you a private mail to send that PDF to.

The love of Schulthess I get, never seen a commercial electrolux machine and am not too impressed with their home lineup.

Curious about what you like about it, and where I could go to take a look?

Im looking for a 40-ish pound class commercial machine at the moment to do boat covers in at the shop.
