Miele major domestic appliances (excluding Vacuum Cleaners)

Freestanding Appliances

For freestanding appliances we will disconnect your old appliance and take it away for recycling (charges apply and vary). If you opt for our installation service, we will put your new appliance in place including plugging it in and for freestanding washing machines and dishwashers we will connect to water supply and waste. In some circumstances, where we find mains services to be unsuitable for safe disconnection and connection or where some level of remedial works are required, we reserve the right to not carry out these services. We are unable to disconnect or connect hard-wired appliances, to rewire plugs, to ‘customise’ fittings and fixtures or to dismantle or change any furniture. It is your responsibility to be aware of your installation requirements, including length of hoses and access for any valves on the inlet pipes, and to inform us if any such requirement is likely to delay or impede installation.

Built-in dishwashers

For built-in dishwashers we are able to offer an installation service for both integrated and semi-integrated appliances, this includes fitting the integrated door from matching kitchen cabinets. This is a chargeable service, the cost of which can be obtained by contacting us on 0330 160 6630. This must be requested and paid at the time of purchase to ensure we are able to set a suitable installation date. For orders placed on www.miele.co.uk it is the customers responsibility to telephone 0330 160 6630 to add this service to the order (where you order products from our Technicians in your home, our Technicians will discuss this service with you at the point of order). In some circumstances, where we find mains services to be unsuitable for safe disconnection and connection or where some level of remedial works are required, we reserve the right to not carry out these services. We are unable to disconnect or connect hard-wired appliances, to rewire plugs, to ‘customise’ fittings and fixtures or to dismantle or change any furniture. Customers are required to remove plinths and ensure access is available to the stopcock prior to the installation team arriving at the property.

Where you have bought a tumble dryer and stacking kit which is compatible with your washing machine we can stack your tumble dryer on top of your washing machine.

We will remove all packaging and if required dispose of your old appliance leaving you with only your new Miele to enjoy.

We always aim to consolidate orders although if you have also ordered Accessories, a Vacuum Cleaner or more than one product then these may arrive separately on a different delivery.

(a) When you place your order at the end of the online checkout process by clicking on the 'submit' button, we will acknowledge it by email. This acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.

(b) We may contact you to say that we do not accept your order. This is typically for the following reasons:

(i) The appliances are not ones for which we can accept online service visit bookings (see paragraph 3.5);

(ii) We cannot authorise your payment (where applicable);

(iii) There has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the services.

3.3.3 Where you place your order by phone, our customer services will take details and will advise you if for any reason we cannot take your order.

3.3.4 Please ensure that all details submitted with your order are accurate. This will assist us in dealing with your repair efficiently

3.3.6 If you wish to change an order after we have accepted it, please let us know as soon as possible. If the change is possible, we will advise about any change to price, timescales or anything else that would be involved and ask whether you wish to go ahead on that basis. If we cannot agree to a change, you may wish to end the contract (see Section 4 Cancellation Rights).

3.3.7 If we need to make changes to an order, we will notify you and, if you do not agree to those changes, you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect (and receive a refund for any services paid for but not received).

Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you can contact us to end the contract (and receive a refund for any services paid for but not received).

3.4 Service visits

3.4.1 Except for appliances that are returned to us for repair (see paragraph 3.5), you agree that we will carry out a service visit to diagnose and/or repair or service your Miele appliance. The details of the services to be provided are as set out in the Confirmation E‐mail.

3.4.2 We may carry out the services through our own technicians, or may sometimes use our authorised repairers to carry out the services on our behalf (in which case, we remain responsible for the services).

3.4.3 We will normally agree the date of your service visit when you arrange it. At least 4 days ahead of the service visit you will receive a reminder from us by text or email (depending upon the preferred method of communication selected by you at the time of booking) of your forthcoming service visit. At your request, we will provide you with a narrower time slot and the name of the technician who will visit you by the following methods, from 3.00 pm the day before the visit, as follows:

(a) Text message: provide us with a mobile number and we will text you the name and two‐hour call slot of the technician;

(b) E‐mail: if we have your e‐mail address, we can send you the information electronically.

3.4.4 Although we aim to return your appliance to working order during the first service visit, there are some circumstances where this may not be possible, including:

(a) If we do not have all necessary parts to complete the repair, we may need to arrange a return visit. In such cases we will not charge you a call‐out charge for the first visit although technician time during that first visit will be counted towards the first hour of time for the second visit. Any unused minutes from the first hour of labour during the service visit will be added to the second service visit as part of the final repair (provided that a second service visit is required).

(b) If in our Technician's sole opinion your appliance is beyond economic repair, we will discuss this with you before carrying out the services. Where you decide not to have work carried out for this reason, please note that a call‐out charge will still apply (see paragraph 3.7.1(c) below).

(c) Our Technician will carry out a safety test of the appliance electrical socket to ensure the product is safe to work on. Should the electrical test fail, our Technician will advise you of what steps you need to complete in order for us to continue with the repair on a further occasion, in which case this clause 3.4.4 shall apply to such further occasion.

3.4.5 If you do not allow us access to your property to provide the service visit as arranged (and you do not have good reason for this) we may charge you additional costs incurred by us as a result (see the charges for failed calls on our website). If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are then unable to contact you or re‐arrange the service visit, we may end the contract.

3.4.6 Payment for service visits is required at the time of our Technician's visit for any services or products. Payment must be made using a debit or credit card.

3.4.7 Someone over the age of 18 must always be in the home for the completion of the service visit.  Our Technician will cancel the service visit if upon arrival there is no person over the age of 18 at your property.

3.4.8 In areas where households have a parking permit restriction, the household is required to ensure that our Technician has the correct documents to park outside or near to the home.  Failing to provide easy access could mean that the visit is cancelled and rescheduled until parking can be provided.

3.5 Vacuum Cleaners, Countertop Coffee Machines and Fashion Masters

Repairs for vacuum cleaners, countertop coffee machines and Fashion Masters are not carried out by service visit – for these appliances, please order the repair by phone on 0330 160 6600 to enable us to arrange collection of your appliance for repair or servicing. Our repair service and charges for these appliances are set out at http://www.miele.co.uk/domestic/maintenance‐and‐service‐480.htm and are inclusive of parts and labour. This service covers servicing and minor repairs, and we are not able to provide this service for appliances requiring major repairs: where we consider that your vacuum cleaner, countertop coffee machine or fashion master cannot reasonably be repaired, we will return the appliance to you and refund 50% of the cost of the service.

3.6 Service Guarantee

3.6.1 We guarantee all repairs carried out on a specific fault for 12 months, covering both labour and replaced parts. Please note that this service guarantee only covers the specific parts and services supplied under the service visit or during the repair: it does not cover any other faults that your appliance may have. The service guarantee does not apply where the failure of a repair or a replaced component is due to any of the following:

(a) Non‐compliance with safety regulations and warnings given in the operating instructions;

(b) Faults caused by operating errors or lack of care;

(c) Inappropriate and/or commercial use;

(d) Intentional or accidental damage, or external influences;

(e) Incorrect installation or faulty repairs by non‐authorised repairers; or

(f) Use of non‐approved spare parts or accessories.

3.6.2 The service guarantee is offered as an extra benefit and does not affect your key rights, which are summarized at the top of these terms.

3.7 Price and Payment Options

When it comes to servicing your appliance, there are two options available to you: you can pay our standard service charge; or pay in advance for a fixed price repair. Each of these options are explained in this section.

Please note that the fixed price repair is only available if paid in full either at the time of booking or at the latest 24 hours prior to the Technicians visit.   

1) Standard Service Charge

3.7.1 Our service visit charges are set out on our website in pounds sterling (GBP) and include VAT at the applicable rate. The price for your service visit (and the basis of any charges we cannot calculate in advance) will be indicated on the order pages when you place your order or will be confirmed during your phone booking:

(a) Call‐out charges include the first hour of labour; additional time after that first hour is based on an hourly rate but is charged in 6‐minute increments;

(b) Replacement spare parts are charged as extra – your technician will advise you of the cost of spares;

(c) Where our technician advises (at its sole discretion) that your appliance is beyond repair, the payment for the standard service fee will be transferred across to the cost of a new machine and we shall be under no obligation to repair your appliance. 

We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices advised to you are correct. If, in the course of a service visit, it becomes apparent that further work is needed on your appliance beyond that covered in your order, the technician will agree the costs of that additional work with you.

3.7.2 In some cases, and where stated during the order process, we require advance payment before we start the services. Where you have made advance payment (unless you have pre‐paid in full) we will invoice you for the balance of the price of the services when we have completed them. In all other cases, you will need to make payment on completion of the services.

3.7.3 Unless services have been fully pre‐paid, you must pay each invoice within 30 calendar days after the date of the invoice. We accept payment by all major credit and debit cards, but we are unable to accept cash payment. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time. This interest will accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

3.7.4 Nothing in this paragraph affects your legal rights to cancel the contract during the 14 day cancellation period, for further details please see Section 4 (Cancellation Rights).

2) Fixed Price Repair

3.7.5 When an appliance has a malfunction it can be a stressful time and bring uncertainty of the cost to repair the failure.  The fixed price repair brings peace of mind, with a one off payment, covering the total cost to get your machine back up and running. 

3.7.6 The option of fixed price repair requires paying in full at time of booking or at the latest 24 hours prior to the Technician's visit.  Payments are via our Advisors in the Customer Contact Centre and all credit cards are accepted.

3.7.7 If not purchased at the latest, 24 hours before the visit, you will be charged the current standard callout charge (as stated on our website - www.miele.co.uk) plus parts and additional labour. Once the Technician is in the home, the Fixed Price Repair will not be available as an option.

3.7.8 If you have multiple appliances that require a repair you can opt for each machine to be at the fixed price repair value or you can mix one of them to be the standard repair cost, which becomes a multiple repair at £50 plus the labour and parts. This is a good option if one of your appliances has a minor fault.

3.7.9 Should this appliance require lifting assistance due to installation restrictions, an additional charge of £30 will be applied.

3.7.10 Fixed price repair covers the following:

(a) The call out charge.

(b) All labour and parts to fix the appliance, including subsequent visits should we need to order spare parts that are not available on the Technicians van.

(c) Only failures reported at the time of booking will be covered in the fixed price repair.

(d) The fixed price repair has a parts and labour guarantee for 12 months, starting from the repair date. If the exact same fault occurs within this period, we will fix it free of charge as long as the machine has been correctly maintained and has not been misused.

(e) If our Technician finds no fault with your appliance, they will take the time to carry out a detailed maintenance check to ensure that the machine continues in good working order for the future.  This will include any cleaning products required from the Miele Care Collection range to complete the maintenance checks. They may advise you on how to get the best from your appliance with maintenance and usage tips.

(f) If the appliance has further faults, and you believe it is the same or linked to the first repair and is part of our 12-month guarantee, a Technician will need to visit to diagnose the fault. If the diagnosis is the fault is not related to the original repair, you will be asked to pay the Technician to complete any work required. The Technician will offer you the choice of either:

(i) Paying another fixed price repair; or

(ii) Paying the standard call out, plus parts and any additional labour,

whichever is the cheapest option to repair the machine as advised by our Technician.  Should you choose not to proceed you will be required to pay the standard call out charge for the Technicians visit.

(g) If, in our opinion, the appliance is beyond repair, due to its age, type of fault or spare parts are no longer available, we will offer you a replacement appliance through the Miele Retail Team and contribute the cost of the fixed price repair to the new purchase.  This means the service visit will become free of charge. This offer will remain available up to 90 days after the Technician's visit.

(h) The value of the fix price repair only contributes to the replacement appliance, if purchased through Miele directly, at the recommended retail price. At Miele’s discretion, we may exclude specific models or promotions from the fixed price repair service. Our Advisors will guide you through the models that are available to you.

(i) If the appliance is beyond repair (on the first visit only) and you choose not to replace your appliance directly with Miele, or decide to purchase elsewhere, we will refund an amount equal to the difference between the fixed price repair charge and the standard call out charge. If this is required, you will need to email service.administration@miele.co.uk with your service order number and a brief description requesting for a refund.

3.7.11 Fixed price repair does not cover the following:

(a) Faults and appliances not included in the fixed price repair:

(i)  Laundry products – drums and bearings. The machine will be beyond repair.

(ii) Refrigeration – replacement of any refrigerant gases. This will be beyond repair.

(iii) Any Mastercool appliances.

(iv) Miele Range Cookers.

(v) Miele Dialog Oven.

(vi) Parts non related to the initial reported fault.

(vii) All fixture and fittings for the following: gas hob pan supports, burner set up and dials, all refrigeration interior fittings such as door/glass shelves and all freezer drawers

(viii) Any appliance parts made from glass which have been chipped, scratched or shattered

(ix) Any appliance part that has been clearly neglected and not maintained according with the appliance instruction manual

 

3.7.12 Fixed price repair cancellations. In additional to your cancellation rights as set out in Section 4:

(a) You have the right to cancel with full refund up to the day before the scheduled date of our Technician. If you cancel on your scheduled day, Miele has the right to charge you the current standard call out fee and this will be deducted from the fixed price repair.

(b) You can cancel the fixed price repair if we have told you about a change to the services, an error in the price or description of the services, or a change to terms to which you do not agree, or because there is a risk that the services will be significantly delayed because of events outside of Miele’s control.

(c) If we have started the repair, Miele will deduct any cost incurred to the point of the cancellation and refund you the difference.  Cost of the repair will revert to the standard service offering of call out plus parts and any additional labour.

(d) All refunds are processed within 14 days from you notifying us you wish to cancel the fixed price repair.

TESTED TO BE EQUIVALENT OF 20 YEARS´ USE

During the development phase of the product series listed hereafter Miele has conducted tough durability tests simulating a 20 years average use of an average household. The extent of testing for each tested series is described below. This does not represent any assurance or guarantee of a durability of our marketed product series for 20 years. Notwithstanding testing during development phase individual machines may require occasional servicing or may require repair or replacement of core components. In this respect, the statutory warranty provisions apply and – where applicable – additional provisions on product warranty within the general sales terms for the Miele product.

WASHING MACHINES

MIELE has tested development models and core components during the development phase of the washing machine series W 1 (front loader models) in tough endurance tests. The aim of these tests conducted by MIELE is to simulate average usage over a period of 20 years.
The basis for determining the test conditions for the endurance test is the average consumer habits known from studies and surveys. MIELE uses a total of 5,000 wash cycles with different programs as a basis. This corresponds to 5 wash cycles per week with use in 50 weeks per year over a period of 20 years. The requirements derived from this were translated into test conditions. In addition to the exact test conditions, these also specify the number of test items to be tested in order to obtain statistically reliable test results.
These tests carried out by MIELE during development phase are monitored by our employees. The corresponding results are recorded and evaluated by us. The washing machine series is not released until the test results meet the specified criteria for the reliability of the washing machine series.
The tests carried out by MIELE "To the equivalent of 20 years use" are based on a comprehensive concept, which has been implemented by operating instructions, laboratory test instructions and supplementary factory standards. This concept has been reviewed as part of an operational stability study with the result that this concept is complete, it corresponds to the state of the art and with this approach it is possible to test washing machines for a service life of 20 years based on the average use by an average household (Fraunhofer Institut, Expertise LBF- No. 307049 -ExW).

The requirements derived from this were translated into test conditions. In addition to the exact test conditions, these also specify the number of test items to be tested in order to obtain statistically reliable test results.
 
These tests carried out by MIELE during development phase are monitored by our employees. The corresponding results are recorded and evaluated by us. The warming drawer series is not released until the test results meet the specified criteria for the reliability of the warming drawer series.
 
The tests carried out by MIELE "To the equivalent of 20 years use" are based on a comprehensive concept, which has been implemented by operating instructions, laboratory test instructions and supplementary factory standards. This concept has been reviewed as part of an operational stability study with the result that this concept is complete, it corresponds to the state of the art and with this approach it is possible to test main functionalities of warming drawers for a service life of 20 years based on the average use by an average household (Fraunhofer Institut, Expertise, LBF-Nr. 308234). 
 
This does not represent any assurance or guarantee of a durability of our warming drawers for 20 years. Notwithstanding testing during development phase individual products may require occasional servicing or may require replacement of core components. In this respect, the statutory warranty provisions apply and – where applicable – additional provisions on product warranty within the general sales terms for the Miele product
