Okay, it hasn't the best name for quality but I'm buying this instead of repairing my faulty Miele, which lasted a little over 5years and requires a new control board costing £290 plus labour. Do not believe the hype about Miele.

Avoid like the plague, mine lasted less than a week before it wouldn't drain water as the pump had failed. Price is great, but there is a reason behind it.

Just to add to this, my colleague at work was complaining her machine wouldn't drain away, I overheard the conversation and just out of curiosity asked what model it was...

Same as the one above I'm afraid.

Be fair. What she actually said was, " I've got dirty knickers because of my Bush!"

So, it was repaired under warranty or replaced?
Miele pump out of warranty cost = £125
Bush pump out of warranty cost =£35
To my eyes, there is no discernible difference in quality between the Miele one and a 'lesser brand'.
Probably made in the same factory, the days when Meile or any other brand bought quality are gone

My mum has got one of these. There is only her now but she uses it often and had no problems with it .

Had a Bush washer for over 2 years. Works faultlessly - that's doing a family of fives' washing every week.

I had this for less than a week and returned as would run a full spin. Washing was still coming out soaking wet! I bought from argos and they happily exchanged for a beko model.

bought this in silver two days ago to replace electrical fault on hotpoint.. will be happy with 2/3 years out of it for the price I paid, not worth repairing electricals over that in my opinion. .. happy customer so far x

may have change my mind.. the spin is very high pitched?

Argos tried to push to send a repairman out as this was there only option, which was bull. It was picked up within 3 days and a full refund. Paid £257 for a Hotpoint and never looked back. I believe they are imported from Turkey but even when I had a heart to heart session with a manager at Argos she had admitted she is fed up dealing with this particular model, the A126 is also affected.

How would you feel if you had paid £600 for a supposedly quality machine, a machine which in the marketing blurb says 'will last for 20 years'. Which breaks down just after the 5 years are up, with the replacement part costing £300 and installation bringong the repair to around £400?
At least, you got your money back.
For me, replacing a pump on a cheap washing machine would be a viable prospect at £35 and I'm sure that other parts would be similar a fraction of maintaining a Miele.
Maybe you've went down the right road with a middling brand, but rest assured it is all just a gamble even with brands you have in the past assumed to be of quality.

Had 2 of these, first broke after 3 days, the replacement did slightly better and lasted 3 weeks. Got a refund in the end and spent extra getting a better make

I'm merely just trying to point out that this is a cold deal, the pump may cost £35 but due to build quality you don't want to be replacing various components on a machine you have just purchased. I understand you are defending the decision that you have made, but it is the wrong one.

You will be kicking yourself and feel conned, just cancel the order and arrange a return.
