In large households with regular mountains of laundry, ordinary domestic tumble dryers may often be struggling to cope. In many cases, they may simply be too small or too slow to keep up the pace. It is for these situations, where the Miele PT 7188 Professional tumble dryer has been developed as the ideal solution. In terms of capacity, speed, efficiency and durability, this tumble dryer is the perfect match for the Miele PW 6088 washer-extractor and offers the ultimate Miele performance for heavy use in the home. With its stainless steel casing and external dimensions which dwarf ordinary domestic dryers, it is not just impressive to look at, but has been designed for serious commercial endurance.
Its eye-catching stainless steel design provides an immediately recognizable visual reference to the commercial heritage of this latest Miele tumble dryer. The PT 7188 will comfortable take pride of place and be the crowning jewel in any well designed laundry. Apart from its size, it is the huge door and the Profitronic L Vario controls, which have neatly been integrated into the slightly angled fascia panel, which visually distinguish this tumble dryer from Miele's domestic dryer range.
Thanks to its 180 l drum, the Miele PT 7188 tumble dryer has a maximum load capacity of 10 kg, which can comfortably not only accommodate, but also dry to perfection up to 20 bath towels, or 14 pairs of jeans simultaneously. A wide range of drying programmes is tailored to the diverse range of loads which this machine may need to dry in different homes, ranging from heavy work clothes to large down duvets or even delicate silks. This includes a programme where a full load of Cottons can be dried in under 45 minutes. The Profitronic L Vario controls are self-explanatory and intuitive to use, with a 4-line display indicating the precise programme selection for individual loads.
Whilst the original product concept was designed specifically for commercial use, the PT 7188 has been fully tested and certified for use in domestic homes. It has a number of important safety features, which include electronic safety thermostats, as well as a programmable PIN code, which will prevent unauthorized use.
All key components have been tested for commercial endurance, which Miele has defined as an effective working life of 30,000 operating hours. The front panel and patented Honeycomb drum have been made from high quality stainless steel, ensuring outstanding durability and reliability. The solid and robust construction and quality of components used in the PT 7188 tumble dryer is also evidenced by the 82 kg weight of the machine, which is more than 30% more than the typical weight of a Miele domestic washing machine.
Given its superior technology, long life expectancy and diverse range of applications, the initial investment in a Miele PT 7188 does represent outstanding value for money in the long term. The design of this product is a clear testimony to its commercial heritage, and further supports Miele's global reputation as a true expert in modern laundry care. In view of the fact that machine shares many of its components with Miele's comprehensive range of commercial laundry systems, the company is confident of achieving a positive return on the investment made on the design.
The most obvious innovation on the Miele PT 7188 tumble dryer is that it offers a greater capacity and shorter programme cycles than any of Miele's domestic dryers. Its Profitronic L Vario controls provide convenient access to more than 20 basic programmes, as well as dedicated programme packages which have been designed for the target groups “Household” and “Bedding”. In addition, the user can create and save up to 5 own drying programmes, where they can determine the appropriate residual moisture level, drying temperature, as well as the reverse action drum rhythm to further customize the drying results to their individual needs.
