Why don't we show the price?

Retailers like Designer Appliances have the legal right to set their own prices independently, but some manufacturers place restrictions on how those prices may be communicated. Because our price on this item is lower than the manufacturer's "minimum advertised price," the manufacturer does not allow us to show you our price until you take further action, such as placing the item in your shopping cart, or in some cases, proceeding to the final checkout stage. The steps required depend on the details of the manufacturer's minimum advertised price policy. Taking these steps allows Designer Appliances to show you our price consistent with our goal of always offering you the lowest possible prices on the widest selection of products.

This won't require you to purchase the product. You can easily remove it from your cart if you decide not to buy it.

Miele entered the United States marketplace in 1984 with a clear and unwavering mission. That was to build the Miele brand as the preeminent, quality leader in household appliances one customer at a time. And that is exactly what they've been doing for 23 years. With a national network of elite sales and service dealerships working closely with them, Miele offers a full product assortment of appliances for the kitchen, laundry room-even the broom closet! Take a closer look. The long life of Miele appliances is legendary-there are some that are still going strong after 30 years. This is not by accident, it is by design. As a matter of fact, all Miele appliances must endure a 10,000 hour endurance test which equates to a life span of 20 years in order to proudly carry the family name and ever enter your home. The result of this commitment Miele has earned a global reputation as the quality leader.

At the very core of Miele's technical and production competencies are washing machines. Having more experience than almost any other appliance company on the planet, Miele has taken the washing machine in Europe, and around the world, to the highest level of durability, reliability and convenience while always remembering the product's potential impact on our cherished natural resources. With these factors in mind, Miele creates the ultimate fabric care system that cleans and protects clothing better than any other. Guaranteed. Get yours today at Designer Appliances.

Miele canister vacuums are built to last

Like all products from Miele, Miele canister vacuums are built to a rigorous 20-year life design model... a Miele unique quality standard. In practice, this means that the machine must withstand a 1,000-hour endurance test before production can begin. A number of other critical tests are performed including a threshold test, a cable rewind test and a free fall test to ensure the durability of the machine and its components. All Miele vacuum cleaners - every single one - are tested before leaving the factory to ensure perfection. This steadfast commitment to quality and ultimate customer satisfaction is truly Miele-unique. And Miele offers a 7-year motor warranty.

Warrany and Reliability
* The standard warranty period is 1 year for vacuum parts and labor, and 7 years for motor parts and labor for Miele machines.
* The two fan motor design means that it extends the life of the motor by reducing the wear on the ball bearings and motor brushes.
* Each vacuum has a heat sensor which comes on when there is a clog and therefore prevents the vacuum cleaner from overheating.
* All Miele canisters have a dust bag change indicator to let you when the bag is at full capacity and needs to be changed.
* The amount of testing that Miele does before they release their machines from the factory is without peer in the industry.
