This is an opportunity to buy an absolutely first class dishwasher for a very low price of £410. The previous model to this, the G4920, won the Which? Best Buy.

Our last Miele dishwasher was excellent and lasted 16 years in a family of five, on twice per day during the week and three times per day at the weekend.

To get this price you need to use the code 40BILKA to reduce the price to £460.

There is a £50 rebate promotion from Miele here:

https://www.miele.co.uk/domestic/cashback-g-4920-2805.htm#p3246

So the final cost is £410 which is a very good price indeed. You could try to get a price match from other retailers like John Lewis or Co-op Electrical. The Co-op is a good bet because they only charge £90 to extend the warranty to five years. I just bought virtually the same model but with the five year guarantee (it has SC in the product code but doesn't qualify for the £50 promotion) for £540 from another retailer and thought that was a very good deal. But if Co-op will price match Currys, you can buy this for only £500 with a five year warranty. That said, Miele are so solid, you're probably okay without for £410. With the uncertainty around Brexit, German goods are probably going up in price.

I thought I'd add that you can buy the Miele 6000 series for two hundred quid more which have smartphone control and a self-opening door. I wouldn't do this given that these developments are new, I've seen the price of Miele parts and labour and I don't need to control my dishwasher from my phone. Buy the proven bulletproof machine. You don't want a £400 bill because the WiFi card in your dishwasher has failed.

There is also about another 2% cashback available from the usual suspects for further saving of £8 or so.

Good deal, when buying white goods & TV & boiler , save all the warranty insurance premiums : £90 + £80+ £60 + £50+ 60+....etc. which can add up to £500/year to £1000/year, and you have enough money to self insured and renew your appliances on rotation.

In general, I'd agree with you. But if the machine is going to be used intensively and given that the Co-op extension is only £30 per year (to take the machine from two to five years), I'd probably buy it. Miele charges £200 just to look at a machine. You'll probably never need it but I think this is one of those times when it makes sense.

You're never going to be able to buy a Miele dishwasher with a five year guarantee for £410. Our last Miele dishwasher cost £500, never saw an engineer, lasted 16 years and was used at least fifteen times each week. That's 12,480 loads or 4p per load. The tablets cost more. You might be able to buy a Hotpoint with a five year guarantee for less but you won't get the same performance or longevity.

Shame this isn't integrated - if it was I'd be all over it.

A friend of mine has a Miele integrated dishwasher, I have a Bosch. Other than the control panel which is obviously going to be different they are identical.

That's what Skoda drivers say about Audis too.

That's a nice anecdote, but it's a shame Miele don't share your optimism about the appliance's longevity.

And perhaps with some justification too - given that Skoda reliability outstrips Audi's. ;)

Maybe they read the Which? dishwasher reliability statistics and discovered that Bosch and Neff both have a better reliability record than Miele? ;)

I've recently gone for the Bosch dishwasher from AO (only available from them this model) for £410, then the obligatory £20 voucher they seem to give to everyone, plus a £70 trade in for the old one. Works out nicely at £320 and the dishwasher only uses 6.5l water each load with A++ energy rating. From the comments I here I'm glad with the choice seeing that Miele and Bosch have similar reliability.

So you would pay more for an identical dishwasher because it has a different name?

Don't worry, no need to justify yourself if you can't afford it.

That's a new one on me. Bosch, Siemens and Neff are parts of one and the same company (BSH Hausgeräte), and their products tend to be very similar for obvious reasons.

Miele, however, is entirely separate. Their refrigeration equipment is made for them by Liebherr, but I've never heard it suggested that their dishwashers are made by BSH.

Miele is a family firm in Germany.

Bosch, Siemens, Neff and Gaggenhau are all made by BSH Hausgeräte GmbH.

I've owned a Bosch dishwasher and it was very good. Probably twenty years ago though.

In my experience, Miele and Bosch machines are different though it is possible that they could share components. Even if they did share a chassis, it doesn't mean the rest of the machine is the same. Though Bosch might make some models for Miele in the same way that Liebherr make their fridges and freezers. But I don't think they do.

If I hadn't bought the Miele I would have bought the Siemens SN26M880GB which is £429 with a five year warranty at John Lewis. But the trays can't be adjusted in height and some people have complaints about cleaning and the reliability of the electronics.

As an aside, since John Lewis stopped stocking or delivering white goods and started branding often quite low end appliances as their own brand, they're not as good to shop with.

Great price but bare in mind that this is a BK model so no cutlery tray... if you want this then this model is worth a look at £399

Absolutely agree with you on that! John Lewis used to be unbeatable on customer service, and they genuinely were 'never knowingly undersold'. These days, in order to survive, the customer service is often on a par with Dixons/Currys in the bad old days (checkout their Trustpilot reviews) and the NKU policy exists more in name than practice. They're very frequently undersold, and they know it.

And the white goods churned out under the John Lewis brand really are dreadful - largely made by Electrolux and not to a good specification either. Poor quality, and unreliable. I suppose the writing was on the wall a few years back when John Lewis chose Electrolux to partner with, rather than the slightly more expensive but much better quality Bosch.

And also comparing to a model from 16 years ago is not fair - there's some evidence (including as reported by Which?) that Miele aren't as bulletproof as they used to be (which may explain the demise, or severe limitation in availability, of their 10 and, now it seems, even the 5-year warranty).

I don't know whether the machines are as good as they were but Miele do design their machines to last whereas most manufacturers now design to fail. The Miele dishwashers are still Which? Best buys and get great reviews like this:

http://www.trustedreviews.com/miele-g4920sc-review

The machine I bought came with a five year warranty and you can still buy the five and ten year warranties on the Miele website. They're pricey but I still might pay the £170 quid or so to extend my five year guarantee to ten years. Our dishwasher gets used a lot.

Edit ** I wouldn't extend the warranty to ten years as they are now limited to 10,000 hours or about 5,000 two-hour washes. Check how often you use your dishwasher before buying. We use ours a ridiculous amount and would hit the upper limit at six years.

To be fair to Bosch, they'll extend the two year warranty to five years for only £99 but don't seem to offer a ten year warranty. They don't seem to have a maximum use though non-domestic use is excluded.

+1 for miele dishwashers. It's all such a gamble with warranties. 3 years heavy use (small cookery school) and it hasn't missed a beat.

The fact of the matter is that pretty much all their goods that I was aware of, used to come with 5 or 10 year warranties included. I agree they're still a top brand but we should always have a critical (or even cynical) view of things!

To be fair, dishwashers are pretty simple appliances and there is very little to go wrong on them, They are just a pump, a valve and heating element really. If neither of those break then even the cheapest ones should last a good while, and there isn't a lot to wear out like on a washing machine.

To be fair, our last dishwasher broke when, the computer chip controlling the wash cycle, corrupted and the wash cycle got stuck. Engineer came out and got stumped for quite a while thinking it was a sensor issue. Just to add another thing to your list of components that can break :D
