Stackable laundry solutions for Harrods

Miele Professional has announced that its 8kg capacity stacked laundry solutions have gone on sale at London’s luxury department store, Harrods. These machines have enhanced Miele’s existing consumer presence in Harrods, offering results you would expect from Miele commercial laundry machines but on the smallest of footprints.

The combinations bring together both a washer-extractor and a tumble dryer, each designed for an 8 kg load, or two tumble dryers with the same capacity, stacked one on top of the other. These solutions will appeal to Harrods customers, who are looking for the most efficient way to process large volumes of laundry, in the shortest possible time in a surprisingly small space. Miele’s 8kg washing and drying cycles can be completed in a little over an hour.

The washer-extractor features Miele’s patented honeycomb drum, which is designed to gently care for fabrics. The tumble dryer features Miele’s patented electronic PerfectDry moisture-sensing technology to determine when items are at a specific drying stage. This enables spot-on drying results, protects against overdrying and helps save energy. The washer-extractor uses 30% less water and 16% less electricity than comparable machines, helping reduce operational costs as well as environmental impact.

Les Marshall, sales & marketing director at Miele, said: “With more capacity per square foot, the 8kg machines can improve efficiencies without sacrificing laundry loads and machine accessibility. Additionally, both units fit through a standard doorway, adding to ease of installation, and saving valuable space.”
