Let’s take a closer look at the features, performance, and prices associated with Miele dishwashers.

Premium Features

  • Double Waterproof System: This feature automatically shuts off the water supply to the dishwasher if the system detects a leak or blockage.
  • AutoClose: A slight contact between the door and the appliance is all it takes to activate this gentle motorized door-closing feature.
  • Delay Start: Available in 30-minute to 24-hour options, the start time of a cycle can be delayed to save on costs during peak energy hours.
  • Knock2Open: After knocking twice on the front panel of select higher-end Miele dishwashers, the door opens by about four inches, completely on its own using an ingenious opening mechanism.
  • M Touch Display: You can control higher-end top control dishwashers quickly and intuitively by tapping or swiping this hidden, visually appealing control panel.
  • Miele@home: Intelligent Miele dishwashers can be networked conveniently and securely via the Miele app, which also allows you to use voice control and integrate with other existing home-automation devices.


Miele stands for fascinating technology and excellent results combined with minimum energy consumption. Miele dishwasher reviews from product testers and customers alike hold these appliances in high regard due to their wealth of innovative features available exclusively from Miele, including the convenient Knock2Open feature and automatic detergent dispensing in newer premium models. As a testament to its commitment to superior cleaning results, Miele features intelligent sensors across all models’ Normal cycles to detect soil levels and delegate cleaning power as appropriate, saving water and energy in the process.

Plus, the SaniWash cycle delivers hygienic and gentle care to your dishes for the perfect cleaning while the Extra Dry option dries everything to perfection—even glassware and plastic items. The IntenseZone option in premium models offers enhanced cleaning performance in the lower basket. As if that’s not enough, Miele dishwashers ranked first in leading product tests conducted around the world.

Price Range

As previously mentioned, Miele dishwashers retail for a luxury-tier price. Entry-level front control dishwashers start at around $1,099 while high-end top control models cost up to $2,999. That said, the higher price tag comes with ultra-quiet noise levels (as low as 41dBA), hygienically clean results, reduced cycles by up to 50 percent, AutoDos automatic detergent dispensing, digital touch displays, and more.
