White, 14 Place Setting, 6 Wash Programs, Energy Star

The main contention against dishwashers manufactured by Miele is that they cost a lot more than the average dishwasher by other brands. That may be true, but considering the features and economy of a dishwasher like the G 1472 SCVi, a Miele fully-integrated dishwasher model, it shouldn't come as a surprise why this model is priced on the high-end. It is simply filled with features. Moreover, you can definitely consider it as an investment as you save money and protect the environment with continued use.

Interior Features
  • The interior of this machine is definitely great for people who want to take advantage of crafty features that also spell convenience. For example, this model has the 3D cutlery tray unique to Miele machines. It is adjustable in all three dimensions, so that whatever shape your load is, the tray can adapt to it.
  • This model has 4 power LEDs that give you brilliant light for the entire interior washer cavity. There's no need to peer inside just to load and unload, so the entire dishwashing experience is more pleasant.
  • It has a large capacity of 14 place setting and offers up to 6 wash programs along with other convenience features such as the delay start option, built-in water softener, and advanced basket configuration.
  • This dishwashing unit ensures energy efficiency since it is Energy Star-qualified. Yearly energy consumption is estimated at 297 kWh.

    Exterior Features

  • This white Miele dishwasher comes with a bevy of exterior features that provide you with the ultimate in design flexibility. For example, this model has the Incognito feature where the entire control panel is concealed for a smoother design and controls are a single push button.
  • With a combination of a cavity that is shorter and feet that are height-adjustable, the washer design allows for easy integration within cabinetry that has a high-toe kick design, countertops that lower in height, access level, or other non-standard designs. No wonder this model is approved for use by the ADA.

    Dimension Specifications

    Width: 23.56 inches
    Height: 34.25 inches
    Depth: 22.44 inches
    Total capacity: 14 place setting


    With the washer's CleanAir drying system, you can be assured that the items you wash with the machine do not just look clean, they are actually free of harmful bacteria and dirt, which may be caused by unsanitary dishrags used to dry dishes the traditional way. The ultra quiet acoustic rating makes sure that your dining ware gets thoroughly cleaned without the noise. Enjoy this quiet yet hardworking dishwasher. The delay start allows you to make the machine work even without supervision. This is perfect for use when you need to be somewhere but need clean dishes as soon as you come back.


    The price tag of this dishwasher model is definitely a bit too much for shoppers despite that the features are notably top-notch. With only 6 wash programs, this model may be a bit pricey compared to same-priced dishwashers that have 16 or even 19 wash programs.

    Terrible dishwasher AVOID!
    by: Grant H

    This dishwasher is a nightmare. AVOID. Fault notices, leaking, poor design for glassware. Used it fewer than 30 times and it no longer runs through a cycle without stopping in default mode. Tub started leaking almost immediately. Epic failure on Miele's part.
