There seems to be a problem with modern washing machines. Unless you pay £500 plus for a Miele you get something that is of very low quality compared to earlier machines. To get good value it seems that you have to look at more than the price and the features.

You can’t trust a brand name any more, Hoover, once very good, are now owned by Candy. Zunussi and several others are all owned by Electrolux.

So the important questions are –
How well made is it?
How long will it last?
Can you obtain small parts without having to buy large expensive sub assemblies?

If you can’t be sure that it’s no better than the modern day average, then you have to ask, is it good value at £360 or would it be better to pay a little more for a Miele?

If on the other hand, someone out there knows that this does have -
A well made stainless steel drum,
A robust suspension system
An adjustable drive belt
Motor brushes and drum bearings etc. that are available separately
A reliable control system
A good chance of lasting more than fifteen years

Well then this might be worth £360

Candy own Hoover
Delonghi own Kenwood
Electrolux own Zanussi, Parkinson Cowan, Tricity Bendix, Aeg, Flymo + 100 other brands world wide
Electrolux also own Husquvarna who they run Flymo, Partner & Muculoch through
Merloni own Hotpoint, Creda, Cannon, Indesit, Ariston + load of other lesser brands
Whirlpool own Maytag, Amana, Admiral, Kitchen Aid
Alba own Bush, Goodmans, DirtDevil, Powerdevil & Badge for loads of others
Glex Dimplex Home Appliance own Stoves, Belling, New World
Beko own Leisure, Flavel (budget models) & Badge for loads of others
Flavel own Rangemaster, Falcon
Bosch own Siemens, Neff, Gaggenau
Brandt own Dedetrich, Fagor, Ocean

Servis machines are made by Ardo Merloni and Ardo badge for loads of people

Most appliances are now made in Poland, Slovenia, Slovacia, Turkey (Vestel, Arselic) & China (Haier, Midia)

No appliance will last that long unless you buy a Miele and ones that do are lucky

Can comment on the rest I dont sell this model, though Zanussi are generally good for a few years I dont get many problems with them. It looks like an Electrolux model and zanussi are usually priced £30-40 quid cheaper and are the same machine.

I would say that the extra £200-ish you'd have to find for a Miele with a lower spec is hardly "a little more". Although you do currently get a 5 year warranty.

I believe that the John Lewis own brand is made by the Electrolux group & comes with a 3 year warranty.

Thanks for your comments Kannan101. In my experience washing machines can last more than 15 years providing they are reasonably well made and parts are available. I have known of several genuine Hoover machines that have lasted well including my present one that is 17 years old and still going strong. There will come a time however, when it will have to be replaced. If a £360 Zannusi isn’t good for fifteen years, it tends to make a £500 Miele that will last at least 20 years look like better value.

I wasnt refering to machines not lasting 15 years plenty can if looked after properly my wife is still using our Candy Turbomatic TC1000 Washer Dryer which we brought in 1991 with just 1 £45 repair.

What I was refering to is the materials used nowadays and to the build standards you would be lucky to get a modern machine lasting 3-5 years without having a failure.

The design, build quality and materials used in Turkish & Chinesse made machines are barely legal, good example Teba went bust because their machines were such poor quality, cookers and ovens with the bare minimum allowed insulation, kichens were hotter than the food.

Yes John Lewis models are just rebadged electrolux models, you get 3 years with JL, standard waranty for other appliances from JL is 2 years.

Miele appliances are well worth the money, best quality appliances you can buy.

If you get a warrany on another brand appliance thats £150 extra so buying a Miele is well justified.

Average Miele machine lasts 15-20 years.

Just found this

http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/content/products/details/?modelcode=MIE-WT2670WPM

which would have a similar spec to the Zanussi

Its costs a whooping £875 delivered! It does however come with a 3 year warranty.

My argument on this is I can have 2.5 Zanussi for 1 Miele

So averaging it out 5 years per Zanussi = Around 12.5 years use

Whereas 1 Miele = 15-20 years

My argument being once the Miele gets older, there are bound to be problems. Law of averages with kitchen appliances.

Whereas I get a new Zanussi every 5 years. I might even be lucky and get one that lasts longer than 5 years. And yes I might get 1 that lasts less than 5 years. However, I might get a Miele than doesn't last 15-20 years.

I know, I know its all speculative

Just food for thought ...

Thanks for those thoughts Bristle Hound. The features on the £875 Miele are of little interest to me, the £550 model would be quite adequate. Even so, I am not convinced that Miele are good value, but I am impressed by their claim that the average life of their machines is 20 years and several people have told me that most go on for much longer.

It may be that the Zanussi offers better value if it has -
A well made stainless steel drum
A robust suspension system
An adjustable drive belt
Motor brushes and drum bearings etc. that are available separately at a reasonable price
A reliable control system
A good chance of lasting more than fifteen years

Is there anybody out there that actually knows these details?

For all we know one Miele may last as long as four or five Zanussis.

In the same respect 1 Miele might last as long as 1 Zanussi

Who knows ...

PS I've given you a rep for constructive argument! :thumbsup:

Just (a month later) throw into the pot that this Zanussi is a washer dryer. The cheapest Miele washer dryer appears to be in the £850 mark. Compound the interest on the money saved, assume 2x, maybe 3x the lifespan (though to be honest, I think you may be buying into brand hype there). Miele does get the best buy from Which?, but it's not very far ahead of this Zanussi.
