Hello, hoping this machine will be of interest to some on here! Earlier today I picked up this Miele W735, when i saw it listed for sale i thought ''that's mine!'' and shortly was mine. The machine is in a really good condition, and spins, but thats as far as I've tested it.

The two little negative bits are the filter is full of what could only be described as decomposing bird matter but that's solveable, but the previous owner cut the aquastop hose leaving the two wires, inlet hose and sleeving open ended...the ''aquastop'' bit of the hose is missing. After looking through the wiring diagrams provided courtesy of Miele, it looks like its just another inlet valve in the hose, so i intend to make a makeshift set up then print a box for it all in a 3D printer if it works.

But, other than that, I honestly cant complain. It's so solid, clean, beautiful, quiet...I only took the lid off cos i didnt know if it was spinning it's so quiet! Dad came out and was impressed by it too!

Anyway, closing pic, will get some more tomorrow. I do have the bottom plinthy bit, i took it off when i moved it so i didnt ruin it...chances of finding another are pretty much 0.

Wowzer Chris!

Is your shed floor reinforced?

Hi Chris.
I think, if I had seen that machine advertised for sale, I would have made the same decision to purchase as you!
What an excellent find.

I would assume that this is the top of the mid 1980s range of models and would have replaced the W459 touch sensitive model (piccy attached below).

Judging from the hinge cover at the right hand side of the fascia, is this one of those models with the fully opening front panels, to aid servicing?

lol no not yet, this is the 2nd Miele that I own and i will have to look at doing something to it otherwise it will collapse. The main summer house is currently housing 26 out of 37 machines, it's holding up to my amazement!

Yes, the hinge will open up the front of the machine like fridge. Unlike the W459, the main door with door bowl on my is hinged on the right, the W459 is hinged on the Left like most machines. But, that W459 looks a handsome machine, and so does the dishwasher!

About to have a play around with the Aquastop and see if i can get it to do something other than spin.

Image attached is the selling photo/gumtree photo. I havent a pic of the door open yet! :o

No joy this afternoon, back to the drawing board for now! But, i got a few more pics with the lid and plinth on this time, so i might as well share these. All pre cleaning, i havent cleaned it at all.

Does anyone here happen to know what model number the matching condenser dryer is?
