Product information

Featuring innovative new Miele laundry care technology, this advanced WKH 120 WPS washing machine is equipped with impressive features designed to deliver cleaner clothes with minimal effort. It uses PowerWash technology to intensively drench your clothes, achieving a cleaning performance improvement of 10% over earlier models. What’s more, its intelligent two-phase TwinDos system automatically dispenses your choice of either Miele or other brand liquid detergent and fabric softener at the right moment, to achieve the best results for any given cycle. It even does this for up to three months for maximum convenience.

This large-capacity washing machine puts you in control. You can add CapDos detergent capsules to the fabric conditioner compartment, dispensing the right amount for specialist clothing types while the ProgrammeManager gives you more flexibility to customise programmes with modes such as Intensive and Eco to customise your wash. The Express20 wash takes just 20 minutes to clean your clothes, while Miele’s exclusive QuickPowerwash function provides a full A-rated wash in under an hour. With a convenient 24-hour Delay Start function, you can programme the machine to begin a cycle whenever you choose, and you’ll know exactly when it’s going to finish thanks to the Time Left display.

Effective stain removal action tackles even the toughest dirt and blemishes. Ironing is made easy thanks to the SoftSteam Honeycomb drum and its Pre-Iron function, which uses steam to gently smooth clothes and reduce creasing.

For your peace of mind, this model features the unique Water Protection System, which offers a lifetime guarantee against flooding. With an A+++ energy rating, this machine also has an EcoFeedback display showing you how much energy it’s using, helping you reduce your environmental impact and household bills. What’s more, Miele have built and tested this stylish, chrome-finished appliance to keep on cleaning for years to come.

Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Would not recommend I purchased this model, along with the matching tumble dryer, with stacking unit, in March 2014 and I cannot say how DISAPPOINTED I am with it. I am just awaiting the fourth call out in less than 12 months. Trouble with the cartridge system, first not notifying when it it empty, and now saying its empty when its not. Check dosage notification - sometimes hardly any suds, the next too many. I find it difficult to believe the other rave reviews. The tumble dryer has also had to be modified - my superking duvet cover forms into a tight knot and is still wet in the middle at the end of the cycle - the drum doesn't reverse for long enough to keep items separate - and I am awaiting yet another modification. I am about to write to Miele Head Office with my complaints. I really wish I had bought different models. 02 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Miele W1 This is a great investment as it really a washing machine that lives up to the Miele reputation. The twin dos system is very good and it power wash feature is very time saving. I would recommend this as most of the programmes available for washes are general to everyday use. 15 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: EASY TO USE, LARGE CAPACITY, QUIET AND EFFECTIVE This machine was bought to replace a ten year old Miele for which repairs would have been too expensive. This was an excellent choice: we (silver servers) easily set up the programme, initially for use with the Miele cartridges provided, and since, using universal liquid detergent and conditioner. Both have given good results. We have mostly used the fifty-nine minute Quick Power Wash but have also tried the Express 20 and Woollens programmes (using the mini cartridge supplied in the powder drawer). Results were sufficiently good not to need the longer normal programmes. Energy usage for electricity and water can be monitored and, to date, we are pleased with the level of consumption for daily use (one to five washes a day). John Lewis were quick to email their two year warranty certificate and we have elected to sign up online with Miele for their five year warranty and have paid to have a further five years, thus giving ten years of cover and, for us, peace of mind that should anything go wrong, Miele will sort it out. 27 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Miele W1 This machine is FANTASTIC!! Expensive, but for a machine that uses cast iron weights and a stainless steel outer tub instead of concrete and plastic, you get what you pay for. The machine itself is equipped with all the mod cons I was looking for, especially the TwinDos which dispenses the correct amount of detergent and stain remover during the wash, and is good for 30 washes. I Also like the Cap dosing which Miele do range of different Caps from Fabric Softener to special Down detergent for duvets and pillows. Another feature I particularly love is the pre-ironing steam smoothing option at the end of the cycle, very good for curtains!! No ironing required!!!! Another reason for this purchase was the Allergy wash feature, which will maintain a particular temperature during the wash and perform a steam cycle afterwards, to deactivate allergens. Overall I am completely satisfied with this product, it's silent, solid and most importantly cleans brilliantly! Also due to the honeycomb drum I haven't yet had any laundry stick to it! Even after a 1600 spin!!! I would recommend to anyone!! 03 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning machine We've had this washing machine for a couple of weeks now and it is truly EXCELLENT! Our clothes have never been so clean and fresh. We used to have a Hotpoint washing machine which did good service (15 years) but never cleaned our clothes perfectly. It finally gave up and started to leak hence the replacement. We'd heard great things about Miele machines from both friends and colleagues and decided to take a punt on one based on their feedback and some online research. Our thinking was that if it lasted as long as our previous machine the ROI would be worth it! This was especially true since Miele state that the machine should last 20 years - German engineering I guess! We are so glad we did! This machine has a good sized drum and will accommodate a decent washing load. The TwinDos system is brilliant, leaving the washing super clean and smelling fresh. The Wool Cap dose is even better, delivering soft, fresh smelling wool jumpers that were almost dry. No more odours of damp sheep that we used to put up with! We don't think we'll be returning to traditional washing powders/liquids anytime soon. Very impressed. Even better is the Smooth Steam at the end of the washing cycle. It really does reduce the creases and my shirts almost didn't need ironing. Spectacular! The programme times are reasonable considering its a cold fill machine (on a par with other manufactures cold fill machines) but can be shorted which helps if your in a hurry. The QuickPower Wash (A+++ rated washing in just under 1 hour) and the Express 20 (20 minute wash) programmes are great though. If your looking for a new Washing Machine you can't go far wrong making this considered purchase. Washing technology has certainly moved on over the last 10 years. It's an excellent all round machine. I'd also like to give a special mention for the John Lewis Delivery team who were excellent! Really good customer service. In conclusion, the best washing machine we've ever owned! 08 April 2014
