Yeahbut, what's the arrangement for repair service?  Does Lowe's have a qualified in-house service fleet?  Miele seems known for lack of service presence and/or long waits, especially outside large city/metro areas.

Sales must be flat so they're taking the path they took with their vacuum cleaners.

I wonder if they'll carry stock, or if it'll still be where you order and Miele deliver?

Low end Appliance Stores over here stock Miele now, but its still the Agency model where you purchase from Miele and Miele deliver.

What about dryers? When will they be selling them?

Well if one read the article it would have told you that there are 2 washer models and 1 dryer model. That said, here is the thing about Miele selling thru Lowes or just about any retailer these days...they are backlogged with orders and I have been seeing some chatter about people buying a Miele dishwasher and having to wait close to a year read that correctly...for their appliance to be delivered. Miele says " it will be worth the wait". I think not.
Yes Miele does make a good product , I have their C3 canister vac and the TriFlex cordless vac that I love to use daily. I had a Miele dishwasher that lasted about 10 years before the computer went screwy and Miele parts are not cheap....a new computer would have cost a cool $1200 or so and that is not with tech install mind you. I got a new dishwasher for less. So I doubt that Miele will last that long going thru Lowes in my opinion.

Miele Dishwashers at Lowes

I checked their inventory and am able to get any one of the three models delivered within 2 days. Their top end model #G7176 is almost top of the line with AutoDos, AutoOpen and a water softener for $1849. A similar model at a regular Miele dealer is several hundred dollars more.

You are better off buying the washers from a Miele dealer. The Lowes versions are overpriced for what you get.

For that price a dishwasher had better prepare the meal, set the table, clear the table, scrape the scraps, load, start, run, finish, and put the dishes away!

From above linked PR release.

The Miele laundry category at Lowe's includes a selection of two washers and one dryer – all are front-loading with easy-to-use controls and include the following features.

Detergent Control: The washing machine models remove all the guesswork with the world's first two-phase automatic detergent dispensing system. It will add the proper amount of detergent and protect from over or under-dispensing.

Flexible Installation: With several installation options, Miele compact washers and dryers can fit almost anywhere in the home. Heat pump technology in the dryer eliminates the need to vent outside.

Long-Lasting Garment Care: With up to 11 wash programs and PerfectDry moisture sensing technology, this laundry set truly takes care of every fabric from cotton to satin and wool to ensure your clothes last longer.


So Lowes will be offering two models of Miele W1 washing machines, with one of matching heat pump T1 condenser dryers.

Aggree with others who say without decent local repair and after sales service Miele appliances aren't always best choice. For money spent having to wait day, weeks or longer to have an appliance repaired may be a bit much.
