Wet Cleaning and Laundry
Miele: Revolutionizing
Cleaning for over 100 Years
A History of Innovation
When Miele was founded in 1899, a
single promise was made… “Immer
Besser.” This German phrase means
“Forever Better” and it is the philosophy by which all Miele products are
manufactured. From the early butter
churns, clothes washers with wooden
tubs, and even automobiles, to today’s
superior vacuum cleaners and a wide
range of kitchen appliances, Miele
seeks continuous improvement. This
commitment to quality and innovation
ensures that the Miele products you
purchase are the most technologically
advanced and the finest quality available.
A Commitment to the Environment
Miele’s sense of responsibility towards
the environment stems directly from
its promise for quality. Longlasting,
durable products not only benefit
consumers, but also the environment
because they require fewer resources.
Miele washing machines have been
widely recognized for their efficient use
of water, energy, and detergent.

Guide & Training
Every system comes with on site
training. We teach the many features of
the Miele Wet Cleaning System to the
cleaner and staff. We focus on the organizing, sorting, and processing of all
types of garments.
As part of ongoing support, each
machine comes with a unique wet
cleaning guide which categorizes each
fiber and garment type showing the
user the step-by-step process each
program utilizes including water temperature, dispensing product and spin
speeds. This guide features programs
for Wet Cleaning woolens, silks and
fragiles, still more programs for wet
washing cottons, outerwear, down
items, household items and shirts. In
addition it outlines specialty programs
for soaking, water proofing and leathers.
Marketing & Advertising
All the technology in the world has no
value unless your customers know you
have it. Miele turns superior technology
into bottom line dollars with a first
class marketing campaign. We offer
brochures, hang tags, print advertising
and counter easels with drycleaner
friendly wording. It does not offend
current cleaning methods but instead
presents wet cleaning as a better
method for many garments.
State-of-the-art wet cleaning and wet washing
For over 8 decades Miele has responded to changes and developments in
the textile and detergent industries by
continuously developing cutting edge
The Miele Wet
Cleaning System
As the percentage of textiles which can
be cleaned in an economical and environmentally friendly “wet” cleaning process is constantly increasing, the use
of perchloroethylene-based cleaning
methods is being greatly reduced.
The Miele System is therefore an extremely viable adjunct to conventional
solvent-based dry-cleaning methods
and has now found international
acceptance. Garments are treated in
an extremely gentle process and finished garments have a pleasant fragrance.
Special system parameters such as
program compilation, g-force, reduced
water levels, an extremely gentle drum
rhythm with long pauses followed by
short periods of agitation, spin speed,
low temperatures and electronic
monitoring of residual moisture levels
are finely tuned to provide a perfect
treatment method. The final touch is
added by a specially developed dispenser system which monitors precise
dispensing of detergents and proofing
agents at exactly the right time. It goes
without saying that all additives are
environmentally friendly.
Freely programmable system for
a wide variety of applications
Extend your services
Apart from the garment-care concept
of “wet” cleaning for wedding dresses,
tailored garments and sweaters, silk
blouses, etc., there are many textiles
which can simply be treated in a
normal wash process, such as shirts,
jeans, downs and outerwear, khakis,
With the new washer-extractors and
tumble dryers, Miele Professional offers
dry-cleaning establishments machines
to cope with a range of laundry-care
requirements: wet cleaning, washing,

most economically viable treatment
method for a large percentage of
everyday garments.

Freely programmable Profitronic controls
Unsurpassed user benefits
Miele Profitronic controls are freely programmable microprocessor controls
with up to 99 options for storing various parameters to suit individual applications. All control functions are performed by the electronic, solid-state
control unit.
Simple operation
A full-text display guides the user
throughout the program. The display
provides information on program running time left, temperature, operating
hours and current program status. A
delay start function allows the use of
lower cost cheap, night-rate electricity
and gives additional flexibility. Three
further languages can be stored in
addition to the standard English language version.
Optimum operational safety
A key-operated switch enables program access and programming of
system parameters to be restricted to
authorized individuals only.

Miele: Unbeatable quality made in Germany
Reliable right from the start
Miele wet cleaning machines are products of unsurpassed quality. Renowned
for precise process repeatability,
extensive system technology and low
consumption values, Miele laundrycare machines are always geared to
the needs of customers, making them
an economically viable solution. All
Miele factories have been awarded DIN
ISO 9001 certification and operate in
compliance with this quality assurance
Simple installation
Miele laundry-care machines can be installed without being additionally bolted
to the floor. Adjustable feet compensate for unevenness in floors.
High-quality materials
Miele washer-extractors are equipped
with a stainless-steel drum with extruded perforations; the stainless-steel
drum on tumble dryers is smooth-sided and unperforated. Materials used
are of unsurpassed quality and, in conjunction with first-class workmanship,
provide for extremely gentle laundry
care. Miele’s Scoop-and-Ladle technology featured on washer-extractors
ensures that laundry is rapidly and
thoroughly drenched for even better
cleaning efficiency.
Recycling option
Every Miele washer is equipped with an
additional drain valve and electronic
control that allows for connection to an
optional recycling container. Water
consumption can be reduced by up to
30% depending on the program.
Dispenser system
Appropriate dispenser pump systems
for liquid detergents and proofing
agents are available from Miele.

Profitronic controls offer a choice of
nine sensor-controlled and two timecontrolled drying programs and provide
customized drying programs to suit
individual load and fabric requirements.
The new tumble dryer series is not only
equipped with outstanding technology,
but also offers an extremely economical drying process: Dryers operate on
the axial-flow principle, ensuring that
approx. 60% of the discharged air is
recycled in the drying process (Air

Tumble Dryer Profitronic controls
The clear, concise control panel features a usage chart which is available
on request in a number of different languages.
Miele tumble dryers are simple and
safe to operate. Drying programs and
drying times are clearly indicated and
can be selected to suit individual applications. The program sequence
display indicates the drying stage
The actual residual moisture level is
indicated in the display during sensorcontrolled programs, whereas actual
drying time left is displayed in timecontrolled programs. The temperature
in the inner drum can be displayed at
the touch of a button.
Separate pushbuttons are available for
selection of additional functions such
as “Low temperature” and “Buzzer” (an
acoustic signal indicates the end of the
drying process). A separate thermometer permanently indicates the inner
drum temperature (even when the
machine is switched off).
Electronic Profitronic controls
The Miele microprocessor based
control system can be used to provide
customized drying programs to suit individual load compositions and ensure
gentle drying to protect fibres.
11 drying programs
– 6 “Cottons” programs
– 3 permanent press programs
– 2 time-controlled drying programs
(cold air 3 mins.–1 hr; hot air 3 mins.
–3 hrs.)
Solid-state electronic controls ensure
that faults are easily diagnosed;
operating hours can be displayed and
service intervals adjusted at the touch
of a button.
Further connections (for example for a
computer or peak-load cut-out) complement the range of standard accessories and are contributing factors in
reducing costs and minimizing the
environmental burden.
