Miele WT2780 Washer Dryer, 5kg Wash/3kg Dry Load, A+ Energy Rating, 1600rpm Spin, White

Product information

Featuring the very best of Miele’s washing machine and tumble dryer features in one appliance, the WT2780 offers excellent washing, spinning and drying performance. It’s also kind on the environment and will save you money, being cold fill only and using just 45 litres in a standard cotton wash, contributing to its A+ rating for energy efficiency.

Fuzzy Logic gives it automatic load adjustment for further savings on water, electricity and time, and there's even a detergent dispensing recommendation, as well as an indicator light which comes on if you have overloaded the machine, giving you the opportunity to reduce the load. A freshen up programme automatically refreshes a wide range of dry textiles resulting in less or no need for ironing.

The Handwash programme is extremely gentle, and the Miele honeycomb drum cushions your clothes as it washes. With the WT2780 you can also select a quick wash for lightly soiled clothes, and there are 7 drying levels, 14 drying options and timed drying. With 5 spin speeds, this ensures that you will have low residual moisture levels in your washing to ensure faster drying time, and the sensor drying system prevents the drying cycle going on too long and wasting energy. Condenser drying means the machine does not need venting.

The Miele WT2780 also offers highly effective stain removal thanks to the stains option. There are 22 types of stain to choose from and up to 3 can be selected at once. For excellent results there are even pre-treating tips displayed.

If you tend to use your washing machine late in the day you’ll appreciate the extra quiet option. Using the rinse hold function and special wash rhythms, this programme reduces noise levels considerably for quiet periods such as night time.


This Miele washer dryer also has an automatic lint flush cycle which removes lint from the condenser unit, and you can also use a manual 'rinse out fluff' programme if you're concerned coloured lint might find its way into a whites wash. The PC update facility means that as laundry technology progresses, a Miele service engineer can come and update your machine - a very useful feature in a machine you can expect to last.

Miele machines are famous for their longevity. Miele will therefore guarantee to carry spare parts accordingly. Their machines have an enamel coating which is directly applied as a powder, and will not chip, rust or lose its colour in normal use.

Q & As

Great Product I really thought hard about this purchase due to the cost. However this is money well spent. I have used washer dryers before and they have disappointed but this doesn't. It is very intuitive to use. I really like the fact you can set it to just wash or just dry depending on what you need it to do. Also the wash following on with dry setting is very easy to do set too. A very well designed product which does what is asked of it. I am glad I bought it. 08 March 2014
Money well spent Really pleased with everything on this machine from the look, high quality feel, ease of controls, the washing and drying. This machine replaced our third washer/dryer in the space of 6 years which is why we went with the Miele. Even the delivery driver said this machine would be good for 20 years and I have no reason to doubt that it will be. Put in a full load of 2 bath sheets, 2 hand towel, a bath mat and some cloths on a normal 40 degree cycle and dry; thinking the towels would still be a little damp (from my previous experience with other washer/dryers); and I was amazed that they were cleaned lovely, soft and bone dry. This is a prime example of 'you get what you pay for'. You really do with this machine!! John Lewis were also fantastic and service as usual is faultless. They even price matched this machine for me; saving well in excess of £200!! Very happy customers 26 January 2014
Not as expected We bought this machine 6 years ago and it has had constant problems, now it is out of 5 year warranty and is really playing up. I was advised to buy this in store and expected Miele to have a better life than 6 years considering how expensive these machines are. maybe Customer Services should contact me as at present; 1) I will never buy Miele again 2) seriously worried with regard to products from JLewis as this is the 2nd large buy that has not lasted 3) Appliances of this cost should last longer than European standards on electrical goods 30 December 2013
No regrets about my purchase!! Well, were to begin? There is no getting away from the fact this is a considered purchase. Having recently moved to a smaller property and therefore being short of space I knew I would be looking for a combined washer / dryer, however from friends and reviews on-line etc, I was VERY wary about which brand to go for as I had heard of many negatives about a combined unit with respect to breakdowns etc and the fact that some of the cheaper brands will not let you use the dryer independently of the washing machine. After weighing up the cost versus benefit I decided to go for the Miele. I have NO regrets whatsoever. This is a quality piece of kit that is well made and will last for years. I have taken out an extended warranty which will see me through for at least 10 years and hopefully beyond. As a friend reassured me by saying she has got through 2 washing machines and 3 tumble driers in that time, I know I have made the right choice. If you buy this you will not regret it. Super service from John Lewis as usual. 29 September 2013
Disappointing frequency of breakdown In 21 months, this machine has broken down 5 times. When it works, it works well; but this number of failures is unacceptable in a premium brand machine. 24 September 2013
Best machine I've had I bought this in March, and I can't praise it too highly. I went by the reviews specifications, and decided it was worth spending the money. After a month, I am absolutely sure. It is very advanced and the instructions for use look complicated and daunting, but once you've used the machine a few times and got used to it, they are easy to follow. More than anything, I am really pleased with the results - the best wash I've had and the drying programmes work very well. Rinse out the fluff regularly, with the special programme, and there should be no problems. It's quiet, quick when you want quick, and thorough when you need thorough. Really recommended. 02 May 2013
Excellent if heavy and expensive machine We decided to go for this expensive model as it looked flexible and quiet. The John Lewis washer dryer was also too big for the space we had. We had to partly dismantle the fitted cupboard next to it so the excellent fitters could fit it in because it is very heavy and difficult to manoevre. It took a while to get it in as it got stuck on the lip between our kitchen tiles so although this machine was the same size as the one it replaced it was much harder to get it in and out. We put the cupboard back together afterwards and it now looks fine. It has performed extremely well though. It is quiet, has a 20 min express wash, short options for many programmes, a good wool programme that is gentle and fast, programmes for waterproofing outdoor gear, washing trainers, you name it it has it. It also has stain removal programmes but some of these can be long, I ended up with a 3 hour programme to wash a few stained dusters! The feature that weighs your washing and tells you how much detergent you need is very useful and the dryer is accurate at deciding when your clothes are dry. You have to spend a while reading the instructions and after drying you have to run the 7 minute rinse out fluff programme to stop it clogging up. 17 February 2013
Well worth the investment Initially when I put the order through, I had a mild case of buyer's remorse but as soon as it arrived and I did my first wash, I knew it was worth the money. A month in and I still think it is amazing. 15 January 2013
