Just ran across something novel --- well, at least it seems novel to me --- Lowe's Hardware is now carrying some of the Miele W-1 washers. https://www.lowes.com/search?searchTerm=miele+washing+machines
Not only that, but here in deepest, darkest Montana, the WWD660 and WWD160 are listed as available for delivery or pick-up by the end of the week at the local Lowe's store. Miele's traditional outlets here have been saying that ETAs are unknwn. Some Miele dishwasher models are similarly listed at Lowe's.
Anybody know what's up with the new (for Miele) market outlet?
