The Miele W 4842 is a high-end front-loading washer very similar to the Miele W 4802. Like the W 4802, the W 4842 features a PC update function, touchtronic controls and a 4.0 cu. ft. capacity. Unlike the W 4802, however, the W 4842 features RemoteVision technology and a 24-hour start delay timer. Additionally, the W 4842 boasts a wider variety of wash programs than the W 4802, including 12 MasterCare wash programs, allowing it to more accurately handle any type of wash load.

The W 4842's PC update function allows the user to adjust internal parameters (water, electricity consumption) by way of computer while its touchtronic controls allow for easy-to-use, push-of-a-button operation. Its RemoteVision technology syncs the W 4842 up with your wireless network while also monitoring critical system elements. In the event of a malfunction, RemoteVision sends an automatic error report to Miele who will then contact your home immediately in order to send a technician over. The W 4842 also features a 24-hour start delay timer, which allows you to program the W 4842 to start at any time of day, even overnight so your wash is ready for you when you wake up.
