....has started tripping the mains RCD (earth trip). I can still run it but only by disconnecting the earth in the lead (do NOT do this). ....Having the machine "tended to" would be uneconomic. Typically these trip RCDs because the motor wiring gets a little leaky, and a new motor in an old machine is a waste of money. I intend to buy a new washing machine instead, but for the moment my workaround is fine. As for your ad hominem, I have successfully resisted "growing up" for 67 years and will continue to please myself in this regard.
So you've got "leaky" motor wiring and you've disconnected the earth in the lead. Where do you think that current's leaking TO???! Could be the case now that you've removed its connection to earth. If you value your life or that of anyone else in your house, you should get it fixed or replaced without delay.
Overly alarmist. Our new RCD trip is way too sensitive and has been causing problems since fitted. It doesn't require any leakage from live to earth in order to trip it. Leakage from neutral to earth is all it takes. I have touched our earthless washing machine while it is running and felt nary a tingle, so am not inclined to take the panicky RCD's word on this being a real fault. As I say, I am the only person in the house who uses the machine. I do intend to replace it; waiting for a good deal to come up on here. If you are really concerned, then find me one.

Perhaps. But you seem very sure that the fault lies with the RCD. My experience is that an RCD tripping is usually indicative of a fault elsewhere rather than the other way around. The neutral wire still carries the same current as the live wire, so it's not really a 'safe' fault. Good luck with finding a replacement machine, I've given up posting deals on this site, but washing machine deals usually come up fairly frequently. My advice - choose your model, get the best delivered price off the internet and then ask your local independent electrical shop to match it.

Be careful, Miele isn't the quality they used to be. Living so near the factory (in Gutersloeh) Miele have changed to being manufactured and made in Germany to being assembled only in the factory. I am sure they are still quality machines, but they are not what they once used to be!

I agree. We have had a Miele dishwasher for over 20 years that is still going strong, but the clothes washing machine bought much more recently has already had a failed electric valve and has started tripping the mains RCD (earth trip). I can still run it but only by disconnecting the earth in the lead (do NOT do this). It seems to be washing with very little water too. Don't know if that is meant to be a feature or is another problem.

For the money, you could have two lesser machines which might together last longer (and you would get upgraded features at the changeover in the middle). The wife still wants Miele, but she doesn't do the washing any more.

Jesus. Talk about being deadly, plain daft or both. Grow up and have the machine tended to.

Think it only right to add that if you want to continue 'growing up' then see sense. Deadly, daft or both?

I take the point that buying a new machine after 5-7 years etc means you'll benefit from 'new features', but in reality how many new inventions and features that really make a difference can their be?

Our old Meile has a top spin speed of 1100 and a mechanical programmer, and it isn't that old (not lasted as long as Meiles are meant to). Current machines have 1400 spins, more electronics (so presumably more sophisticated programs) and better energy usage. In five years time I expect that all these aspects will be improved again.
