The G 7000 autonomous dishwasher from Miele
AutoDos with PowerDisk for Maximum convenience, excellent cleaning performance and M Touch on fully integrated models
Miele promises unparalleled dishwashing freedom – thanks to AutoDos with integrated PowerDisk. This unique system dispenses detergent automatically and uses powder granulate specially designed for the purpose. Furthermore, the new dishwashers can be controlled by app and programmed from a mobile device. All that remains for the user to do is to load and unload the machine and occasionally replace the PowerDisk; everything else can be left to the machine. Also, baskets and the cutlery tray have undergone further optimisation. Miele first presented its G 7000 dishwashers at the 2018 IFA trade show as harbingers of the forthcoming Generation 7000 built-in appliances. These dishwashers are already on sale in a couple of markets.
The PowerDisk is easily and quickly fitted in the device on the inner face of the door – and dispenses detergent by rotating automatically during the programme. It is around 15 cm in diameter and just under 4 cm thick, and releases a defined quantity of powder granulate into the chamber with each 360° turn. The system automatically dispenses precisely the amount of detergent needed in a specific programme. Particularly in the 'Automatic' programme, dispensing is geared to the degree of soiling which is monitored by a sensor. Consequently, more is dispensed to deal with heavy soiling and about a quarter less for light soiling. In 'Normal 60°C', a PowerDisk lasts 20 cycles, which corresponds to a month's requirements based on typical domestic use.
PowerDisk cleans powerfully and gently
As comparisons conducted by an independent institute confirm, the detergent makes a considerable contribution towards excellent dishwashing results. The formulation was chosen with great care to meet the needs of the G 7000 with AutoDos and guarantees both powerful and gentle cleaning. The powder granulate, which dissolves fast, contains special enzymes for an effective wash, even at low temperatures, as well as active oxygen for thorough cleanliness and freshness, and protection factors for silver and glassware. Rinse aid and salt is included. Special protection against moisture and heat guarantees unwaveringly high quality and consistency over the entire use of a PowerDisk. The G 7000 also features a conventional two-compartment container in the door for the use of conventional detergents such as tablets and powder, where preferred.
Extended app for convenient programming
All G 7000 models with AutoDos can be connected to the Internet via WiFi and can be controlled via an app from a mobile device – or, depending on the country, even via Amazon's voice-controlled assistant Alexa. This allows users to start and stop their G 7000 from anywhere, activate programmes and options from their smartphones, check levels (with an automatic reminder) and even order detergent online.
The new AutoStart function, due for launch in the second quarter of 2019, promises additional relief during busy days, for example to people who go out to work or have a large household to manage: As AutoDos is ready at any time to dispense on-board detergent, a dishwasher can now be programmed to always start at the same time, for instance at 09.00 h every second day. Equally so, it is possible to programme in different starting times, say one for week-days and another for the weekend, or even to run different wash cycles. The system is intelligent: If the appliance door has not been opened between cycles, the start is simply cancelled. In addition to this, the user can trigger further cycles from a mobile device or, conversely, cancel or postpone programmed starts. All programming options are available from the Miele@mobile app.
M Touch now also for fully integrated models
And when it comes to operating the machine face-to-face, the G 7000 offers another first:
For the first time, Miele boasts an M Touch colour display with which built-in appliances can be operated like smartphones, even including fully integrated models with an edge-top display. This guarantees a brilliant user experience using both symbols and text and an intuitive interface involving tapping, dragging and swiping, an approach only available from Miele.
The already high-level loading convenience offered by Miele dishwashers has been further enhanced, for improved ruggedness and to offer further adjustment options. One example among many: Every second spike in the row of spikes in the upper basket is now hinged, allowing for instance muesli bowls or dessert dishes to be placed upright for better run-off. These are joined by additional holders and non-slip silicone rests to securely hold delicate cups, glasses and bowls or light-weight plastic items.
One particularly useful detail characterises the new 3D MultiFlex cutlery drawer: For the first time, the right-hand side section can be lowered, offering space not only for cutlery but also small items of crockery such as espresso cups. The central section, fixed in a lowered position, can now take for example large soup ladles. The left-hand section can still slide to one side to allow tall items of stemware to be securely accommodated in the upper basket below.
A completely redesigned water circuit is aimed at preserving natural resources, bringing water consumption down to as little as 6 l and raising energy efficiency to 'A+++ minus 10%'. Such tried-and-tested Miele features as QuickPowerWash (A-rated cleaning performance in only 58 mins.), LED interior lighting (BrilliantLight) or opening the handleless door by knocking on the front (Knock2open) will remain available.
