Miele TwinDos Washing machines
An efficient, hardworking washing machine is an essential tool in a busy home. If you have a young, active family, a good washing machine is even more important. Some of the most efficient appliances currently on the market can be found in the Miele TwinDos range. Specifically designed with family life in mind, these high-tech, high-performance machines will help to get your family’s clothes looking great every time.
To help you select the perfect appliance for your busy family home, we’re taking a closer look at the Miele TwinDos range.
The TwinDos range
If you’re looking for a reliable, innovative and high-performance washing machine, you’ll find plenty of appliances to choose from in the TwinDos range. Machines with built-in TwinDos technology come in a variety of shapes and sizes, ensuring there’s an appliance for you, no matter how busy, big or active your household.
If you need to be able to wash large loads on a regular basis, invest in the Miele WCR860WPS or the Miele WCG660. Able to handle up to 9kg of laundry, the machine will help you get through your mountains of dirty clothes even faster.
Like many Miele TwinDos machines, the the Miele WCR860WPS and the Miele WCG660 come with the brand’s unique CapDosing technology. This allows you to place single-use capsules of specialist detergents into the machine, making it easy to clean hard to wash fabrics like wool, silk and cashmere. Simply pop the capsule into the machine at the beginning of the wash and your intelligent appliance will dispense the detergent at just the right moment, allowing you to get the best possible results from every cycle.
Miele CapDosing System
Do you have those special pieces of woollen clothing that need more care than your ordinary laundry? The Miele CapDosing system takes the effort out of caring for your woollens, simply insert the small dosing capsule in the conditioner drawer and your Miele washing machine will take care of the rest.
For households with limited space, Miele offers a high-performance washer dryer. The WTF130 WPM Washer Dryer offers the functionality of two separate machines in one appliance. As well as coming complete with Miele’s efficient TwinDos technology, the machine features a QuickPowerwash programme and Miele’s high-performance CapDosing system. This makes it easy for busy families to clean all types of fabric quickly and efficiently.
TwinDos liquid detergent system
More often than not, we end up putting too much, or too little, detergent in the washing machine. Measuring out the exact amount needed is time-consuming and, if you’re like most people, you probably just pour a generous slug into the draw and hope for the best.
The new Miele TwinDos system does away with all that guesswork. Instead of adding detergent and fabric softener every time you do a wash, you simply insert two specially designed canisters filled with good-quality, specially designed product and the machine measures out the precise quantities for you. This convenient system can reduce the amount of detergent you use by up to 30%, saving you money and helping to reduce the amount of pollutants that end up in your local environment.
The video below demonstrates how easy it is to install the UltraPhase cartridges into the TwinDos washing machines.
As Miele TwinDos washing machines run through their cycle, they dispense detergent at just the right moment, getting the best results possible from each wash. The first layer of dirt is removed during Miele UltraPhase 1. This washes away common marks like sand and soil. During this phase of the cycle, greasy stains like oil and chocolate are also broken down by the detergent. Once they’ve been dissolved, they can be easily rinsed away.
Each UltraPhase 1- 1.5-litre detergent cartridge will last for around 50 washes. So once you’ve installed new cartridges you can forget about adding detergent for at least a few weeks.
UltraPhase 2 detergent is used at the end of the washing cycle. This removes more stubborn stains like tea and coffee, leaving your clothes looking as good as new.
Both Miele UltraPhase 1 and UltraPhase 2 detergents have been specially designed for use in these high-tech machines. Specifically formulated to remove a variety of stains, these purpose-made detergents will give you great results every time. If you’re washing specialist fabrics like wool, silk or cashmere, simply add a Miele capsule to the wash and the machine will do the rest of the work for you.
NEW for 2020, we have seen Miele introduce a long awaited Sensitive detergent to the TwinDos detergent range. Miele UltraPhase 1 Sensitive and UltraPhase Sensitive 2 contain no fragrances or colourants, so they are kind to the skin, the detergents have also been verified as Eco friendly by Nordic Swan. They can be purchased in single cartridges or more economically the Miele UltraPhase Sensitive Campign Pack is also avialable, which contain 3x Utralphase 1 Sensitive and 2x Ultraphase 2 Sensitive cartridges.
Miele TwinDos and family life
Because Miele TwinDos washing machines dispense exactly the right amount of Ultraphase detergent, save you money and get your clothes as clean as possible, they’re ideal for family life. Swap your old, tired machine for a brand new TwinDos appliance and you’ll see the difference in your laundry basket straight away.
Not only do TwinDos machines do an excellent job on large, family-sized loads, most also feature quick 20-minutes cycles. This allows you to get urgently needed clothes cleaned quickly and helps to ensure you and your family always have the right outfit on hand whenever you need it.
Creating a connected home
Every year our homes get a little bit more connected and a little bit smarter. Today, many products in the Miele range, including its TwinDos washing machines, are WiFi enabled. This means that you can control your washing machine when you’re out and about, allowing you to time washes to finish just before you get home so your washing is always fresh, crease-free and ready to dry. Invest in other WiFi-enabled products from the Miele range to create a truly connected home.
