First deal so don't rip my head off.

Capacity: 8 kg

Spin speed: 1600 rpm

Quick wash time: 20 minutes

Energy rating: A+++

Ten-year manufacturer’s guarantee

Advertised as £945.

DISCOUNT CODE - £75 off the marked price. Enter code WASH75 at checkout makes it £870.

Quidco have 10% off all curry's items today so this could come down to £783 which I think is pretty good. It says you cant use it conjunction with any other offers. not sure if you can apply the code and get 10% quidco.

I paid £890 for a similar machine last year.

You are stuck with the same technology for 10 years..
My old Bosch lasted 15 years at half the price.
I have never had a washing machine, yet, that has not lasted 10 years.
To justify the price, the warranty should be at least 20 years.
Many machines come with a standard warranty of 5 years or more at half the price, eg Panasonic and Samsung.

Have been married for 46 years and am stil on my second Miele washing machine. Does not have as many programms as new ones but no digital either so very little to go wrong. I do add decalcifier once every 6 months and even my daughter brings her whites because her machine does not do 90C

Equivalent £87 per warranted year until 21 Nov then eqiv £94 per warranted year seems excessive compared to say Samsung at eqiv £62 per warranted year. Difference possibly only justified if you prefer the logo or a unique feature.

I personally wouldn't buy one but owners love them and buy another when they eventually die.
if money no object, get one, it comes on its own wood pallet and has transit skewers instead of bolts.
good price.

Did you have a timer for 20 years so you it would start at night? Did you have a large drum for 8-10 kg load?
How about low water usage and special treatments to allow "dry clean" items to be washed?
Many of these features were not available 20 years ago so you have to wait for new technology.

I've had mine for 15 years. It cost about 600 quid then. I reckon it's done 15000 washes in that time and all its needed is a new rubber seal around the door...

My Siemens is 20 years old and came with a 10 year warranty, but I will probably get a Miele when it finally dies because the build quality is better on the Miele nowadays.
Timer: yes
Low water usage: yes, but fortunately the default is to override (can't stand machines that favour low water usage over simply washing the clothes effectively)
Hand wash items: yes
Dry clean items: No No No. I wouldn't ever put my tailored suits in a washing machine no matter what the machine claimed to do.

Most new features are marketing gimmicks in my opinion. Including huge 9kg loads, which are great if you want to wash 9kg at a time, but if like me you do lots of small loads because that is how you use your clothes, then these will DESTROY a large drum machine. Large drums cannot handle small unbalanced loads.

15 years ago was it energy rated: A+++? I bet it was not. How much extra energy have you used?
A typical 1 hour wash costs 50p in electricity. 15,000 washes = £7,500. If energy efficiency increased by just 10% over 15 years, this would be a £750 saving. At 20% it is £1500. Many washes last over 2 hours, so over £1 a wash.

Often changing an inefficient machine earlier saves you money. It is not just about lasting 15-20 years.
Technology is not stagnant for 20 years.

Many people would not be confident enough to change a seal and with labour could cost £100.
Many people pay for a washing machine to be installed and others do it themselves.

Undertake a cost-benefit analysis for your own situation. I suspect Miele works out expensive.

And if the other machine costs you a few non-warrantied repairs before you finally give up and replace it, it could have cost you a fair bit more. If you feel that technology has moved on and you fancy an updated model rather than having catastrophic failure force the decision upon you then surely that is a good thing. The old one will be worth something to a grateful neighbour/relative or sold on gumtree etc.

.

Is lower water usage really such a big advantage, I have to use the extra rinses button provided on my machine, because otherwise it doesn't use enough water to get all the washing powder residue out. And if I use the extra efficient, low water usage wash programmes it washes the clothes for much longer, which causes extra wear on both the items being washed and on the machine.

I miss not having a hot water inlet on my modern machine, as it uses loads more electricity to heat the water up than my old one did, and it was much cheaper to use hot water heated by gas, on top of which I'm thinking of getting a solar water panel. Also my modern machine furs up badly, I had to dismantle the water pump trap recently because fur had jammed it up and nearly clogged one of the pipes, limescale wasn't such a problem in my old machine, as much of it would have been deposited in my hot water cylinder, and never reached the machine.

I wouldn't want a machine with a mechanical programme timer though, if it is designed properly an electronic one should be more reliable.

Great machines and superb engineering. They are built to last for sure - just try moving one!!

Years ago I considered Miele products but the issue is that 10 years on the unit will look dated!

So now I go with Siemens with 5 year warranty but half the price and get a mid term refresh if that makes sense!

Yes. No issues of residue on a Panasonic machine with 6 years warranty or Samsung Ecobubble with 5 years warranty. You must have a poorly designed machine.

Mine's a Zanussi jetwash, so ought to be pretty good at rinsing, but our previous hotpoint was the same if we didn't select its extra rinses feature, they'd be enough of the biological agent left in clothing to cause itching and skin rashes.

​Same here (my one lasted around 17 years), but not too bad when you think this works out at £87/year and if you use it a lot then it's a nice warranty so still hot.

I would rather have a machine that did a thorough, proper wash and rinse in 65 minutes than one that takes 3-plus hours in order to do the same wash with far less water and so earn the EU eco rating of A+++. Have a look at the Which reviews - none of these machines rinse properly unless you select the extra rinse option (and particularly read the user reviews). And none of them are better than an A or B rating if you select a quicker wash time. The eco ratings do NOT measure how effectively they wash clothes. In fact they are almost the exact opposite.

Honestly, people. Do you seriously buy a washing machine because of all this nonsense eco hype? It is like the rubbish comments you get on here when comparing some shyte cheapo laptop with a well designed, built-properly decent machine. You can't compare by reading the so-called 'specs', you need to look at the thing in action down the line.

How many times you wash per month with this washing machine?

I have used the same Bosch washing machine for 20 years, has never skipped a beat and has never been serviced. You do get what you pay for with white goods.

My last Miele lasted 16 years before it died and survived three small children and real nappies. They also wash really well and the enamel stays pristine.

Miele's warranties have a limit of 10,000 hours. If an average modern eco wash is about two hours, that is about ten washes per week over ten years, so you're unlikely to hit limit that with a washing machine. However, on a dishwasher the limit is potentially problematic. Our dishwasher is on at least twice per day (three times at the weekend) and the eco programmes on a modern Miele can be three hours long. We worked out that extending the five year guarantee would only give us an extra year as we would hit the limit at the beginning of the seventh year. Our old Miele dishwasher lasted 16 years too and it was interesting comparing the specifications of the old and new machine. There was very little difference in energy and water usage. Quite surprising and shows how efficient even old Miele machines are.

My miele dishwasher is similar. 15 years of one or two cycles a year with only the rubber seal needing replacing. I could buy a newer, more efficient one but the amount of energy that goes into making these things makes it unethical!

Dishwashers should be very reliable though. I'm only on my second and my first was bought in the 1980s. The first (a Hotpoint branded dishwasher manufactured by Bosch) was well over 15 years old and still working fine when we replaced it, the second is a Bosch, which I'm tempted to replace as it isn't as good as the first, partly due to it being more energy efficient.

I've only had two faults with them, rusty baskets where the plastic coatings have gotten damaged, and from when we took part in a trial of a liquid dishwasher detergent in the first which rotted the seal around the powder flap and got in the door where it also rotted the wiring insulation, so I had to rewire the door.

Anybody in the trade face palm's at people questioning Miele. Yes we cant fix them as Miele hold their tech close to their chests even the old stuff but you cant bemoan the quality of the item and they are actually much better value than people think, it's just hard to justify a such an outlay for many people on a menial task product

You are stuck with the same technology for 10 years.. - They wash clothes, 90% of the feature's in the last 10 years have really been gimmick's, Samsung Eco bubble don't do anything.

My old Bosch lasted 15 years at half the price. - A modern Bosch brought in the last 8-10 years be a different kettle of fish now, they use off the shelf parts now just better quality ones where 15 years ago Bosch had a very similar ethos to Miele

I have never had a washing machine, yet, that has not lasted 10 years. - You are lucky many people haven't.

To justify the price, the warranty should be at least 20 years. - price is right for 10 years

Many machines come with a standard warranty of 5 years or more at half the price, eg Panasonic and Samsung - Few do not many and these 2 brands are pretty poor for reliability. People will think they have a quality machine with a Panasonic, think again its made by Vestel in Turkey and you only get 2 years on a Panasonic now because they have allowed Vestel to source the parts at "Vestel" quality where before Panasonic said they must be matched to their samples provided.

Ref the reply regarding the energy efficiency that's an up in the air calculation keeping an older machine running is just as cheap especially these quality machines, the rating are part of the EU energy program which has cost us all a lot of money and doesn't work they are already on the 3rd revision and its confusing, if OEM's could put a hot fill on their appliance they would, except for the cheapies as its a cost cut for them.

Changing an appliance for no reason or buying a cheap washing machine is a false economy and is incredibly uneconomical and ever more dangerous to the environment as it costs more to remove and dump these cheaper machines, can cost council's upto £3500 dumping one machine and pulling the bits off that can be recycled.

Why not get a Panasonic with 10kg drum? Surely, then you would not have to wash so often. Even with a family of 4 I do no need to wash every day. The Panasonic is so quiet and does not require an extra rinse and you can programme it to end a wash at a particular time. It had a 6 year warranty at less than half the price of Miele.

Provide the evidence for such a claim. I suspect you have very little knowledge and make ridiculous claims and are no expert.

Panasonic offer a 5 year warranty by registration/claim. So you are wrong. Please admit you are wrong ;)

So what if they are assembled by Vestel? Apple do not assemble their own products. They are assembled in China.

If a new machine does not have a 5 year warranty, do not buy it. There are plenty of machines with 5 year warranty at less than half the price of a Miele. If Miele is expected to last for 20 years or x washes, they should provide a 20 year warranty or for x washes. They do not as they do not have the confidence in their products. Anyone can claim their product lasts for 20 years. To put your money where your mouth is is a different proposition.
