Drum Led Lighting Question On W3922 / W3985

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the LEDs remain lit when washing (providing a washing spectacular show, or unspectacular depending what's in the wash :lol: )?

- or if they only come on when loading and unloading?

and if the Silent Professional Motors of these machines are quieter for the £200+ quid step up from the W3240?

I'm confused as what to get, I think I've discounted AEG,

I thought I was going to get the W1512 for £430, then saw the 10 year guarantees on the above said models.

W3240 is £634, so £200 more but with a 10 year warranty, which makes the W1512 seem poor value.

The W3922 is about £833 so another £200 more than the W3240, but with LEDs and Silent Pro Motor and the odd bell and whistle.

- and at £400 more than the entry level W1512, but in consideration of the 10 year warranty, doesn't look 'so bad'

I like the new shape designs better than the old traditional shapes but Miele didn't apply the 10 year guarantee to those :(

Also found out how loud the Silent Pro Motor is :)

well.. in the W4144

....

(Edit by Washerhelp: Note that videos of Miele or any washing machine are very unreliable as a method of judging noise levels. The recorded sound on a normal video camera amplifies the sound. This video is of a Miele with a professional silent motor which is very quiet - but here it sounds noisy. I think it's due to the automatic level control in the camera boosting quiet noises and the directional microphone focussing on the sound)

My W4446 is the same. I was somewhat disappointed when I discovered the LED went out. But then I realised I was watching my new machine wash my clothes, gave myself a wake-up slap and watched TV instead. ;)

Welcome Sponge - that's the funniest post so far on Washerhelp's forums :)

That video sounds very noisy. It can't be an accurate representation of how quiet a Miele washing machine is.

After filming my own Miele washing machine in the course of writing a new review, I can confirm that videoing washing machines amplifies the sound and is therefore very unreliable as a guide to how quiet a washing machine is. My resulting video made the Miele sound noisy when it is in fact the quietist washing machine I've ever seen.
