Brexiteers don't like 'right to repair' - it's just foreign interference in our 'right to landfill'.

Considering some of these products are discontinued it's not that good a sale, i was expecting better as the prices are not much different from when the other retailers had them on sale. If you are after the high end product then you might get a deal.
I very much recomend Miele as they are quality, but with Black Friday not far away you will be able to get the latest products at a good price from several retailers

I'm sceptical that legislation will divert many appliances from landfill, due to it only applying for professional repair, unless it is also accompanied by legislation to force a compulsory "free" ten year guarantee.

If you've bought a budget appliance, then even if spares are available, by the time you've paid for the spare plus the call out charge and the cost of the labour to fit it, it is still likely to be unattractive and uneconomic compared to buying a shiny new appliance with new features.

Maybe it will help with premium priced products, but to date I've been able to obtain parts for most of my appliances when they are 10 years plus old, although some were copy parts.

It might even generate more landfill from manufacturers throwing out their stock of extra spare parts they manufacture to comply, because they weren't sold after ten years.

What I'd like is sensibly priced spares and pre-flashed controller boards, repair manuals and error codes available to the general public to encourage self repair by competent individuals.

Agree; too many times the spare part e. g. Main/circuit board prices are just too expensive to make it feasible to repair. OnIy when they mandate a max price for a spare relative to the retail price is it likely to help. Though even then I could see manufacturers gaming such a directive.

Actually I doubt it! We'll continue to comply with EU rules so that we can trade with Europe. Besides, why would we want to circumvent sensible legislation - only a foolish Brexiteer without a clue would try to do that just to be bloody minded.

It's not just control boards that are a stupid price. I wanted to mend our aging Bosch tumble dryer. It was only front the felt seal for the drum and the 2 plastic drum bearings that needed replacing. £79 for the felt seal alone!
Microsoft's announcements yesterday indicates they've taken repairability into consideration with their new laptops & 2in1 devices.
Long overdue for electronics. This glued together 5hyt3 Apple started off with their iPod, iPhone, iPad has got to end. Self destructing retaining brackets/clips preventing you repair access, or mainboards that burn themselves out.

It can only lead to a better approach and less consumer wastage.

Does that include the firmware?

One thing that puts me off buying Miele appliances is the price of their spare parts.

Had an issue with a Hotpoint controller board some years ago, a new one was in excess of £100, which was already more than a machine of its age was worth, considering it wasn't much over £300 when new, and I would then need to find and pay an approved Hotpoint repairman with the programming software and a copy of the firmware to flash it for me, and apparently pay for a software licence fee on top.

Luckily my brother works in electronics and managed to identify the fault, and repaired the board for a few pence.

Good question. I don't know tbh.
The price was just for the part. You look at it and think, no way is that piece of plastic and pcb worth that much.
I think they've priced it deliberately at just below half the price of a new machine so that you're tormented into thinking, do I fix it, or spend another £550-£600 for one of their entry level washing machines. HST, an entry level Miele is akin to a mid level product from another brand.

I've read good things about Siemens branded washers, they're not cheap either. Some are related to Bosch machines and others are more exclusive, higher end machines that don't feature all that regularly in UK shops. May have to research them should I happen to need to buy another w/machine.

The controller in the machine I owned was used in multiple models, so was supplied without firmware and needed to be flashed for the machine in which it was fitted, wouldn't surprise me if the only major difference between some models, such as ones with higher spin speeds was the firmware itself. I expect all their controllers come unprogrammed, so the only viable source for self repair would likely be second hand parts.


I can understand some parts being fairly expensive where they have to be manufactured and stored for years and many may never be sold. One supposed justification I once read was you are contributing to the design and development, tooling costs etc, which In my view should be recovered in the original price of the machine, and I also don't think being charged a fee for a new copy of the firmware is fair either, since you paid for that in the original price of the machine.

One thing perhaps the EU ought to consider to keep appliances from early recycling is zero VAT on spares and repair costs and making the manufacturers actually pass the saving on.

I've currently got a mid range Zanussi washing machine, I think it cost about £350, not sure the exact age, but it must be at least 9 - 10 years old, because I bought the first replacement element for it in 2011 and had to replace it again last year.

Other than spend a total of around £45 for two replacement elements, I've had to use acid to remove limescale from the pump trap which was stopping it opening, and dismantle the entire soap draw compartment to clean out black mould. A lot less hassle and cheaper to maintain than any Hotpoint I've ever owned. Not sure what their current quality is like, I'll also be considering a Samsung or LG next time.
