Miele Washing Machines are known all over the world for the build quality of their Washers. They might seem expensive but they are tested to last over 20yrs. Even so, they still provide you with a 5yr guarantee for parts and labour. They basically last a lifetime!
These machines don't have springs securing the motor, they have Shock Absorbers like a car & the outer body casing isn't spray painted like most machines, these are Enamel Coated so they won't rust. Just check out their reviews. I would rather pay once, for one of these than shell out hundreds every few yrs to replace others.

Or buy a Samsung for under £400, comes with a 5 year warranty parts and labour. Service it correctly and it should live as long as a Miele

The problem here is that a number of manufacturers offer 5 year warranty for £350-400 machines from Samsung Bosch etc. and therefore you could buy two for less than the price of the Miele and ultimately the Miele only has a 5 year warranty so whether you believe it will last 20 years or not the reality is it will probably need work doing outside of the 5 year warranty and cost more to repair than buying 2 of the non-Miele machines

Miele, the very best money can buy, my parents have a 23 year old Miele washing machine, never broken down, have not spent a single penny on repairs.

All the Hotpointers voting cold

I would have been tempted by this if I was in the market for a new washing machine although bought one of the 9kg Samsung ones a few months ago with a 5 year warranty (as stated above).

Still hot from me if this one is built the same as they use to be.

It isn't only the longevity of a Miele, it's the whole package. They wash better. I have the twindos system and would never go back to bog standard machines. It is better, quieter, more efficient (I can do a 20 minute wash on mine) and it will last. My last machine was a Miele, a second-hand one from my parents. It is still going strong but I wanted to upgrade to twindos. It is now with my daughter - it must be 30 years old and she loves it.

Does the twindos have a normal drawer and can you use regular detergent or do you have to use the system and Miele detergent?

We have a regular Miele but thinking about which one to get next when we upgrade.

It has a regular drawer and also it comes with (or mine did) two empty containers for the twindos for you to fill with what you prefer. So no, you don't have to use their detergent, but with the regular 20% codes, I buy a year's worth at a time as the washing has really never been so clean.

If you can find the youtube video from the scientific side of Miele, they have the twindos detergent very well explained. It lasts FOREVER.

Edit - to add, when I select the programme and work through the touch screen it asks if you want to use twindos or detergent. Found the video youtube.com/wat…-XA People that have never tried Miele, will never understand. They think it's just hugely expensive. They haven't seen the quality, difference and longevity.

Your last comment is correct. Miele owners upgrade, other's replace.

The difference is, if you buy the Samsung you will need to replace it after the warranty ends. With the Miele you won't .

This might be a better bet:

Same price - but with a 10 year parts and labour warranty.

My mums Miele face up after 6 years. It had had an issue before that was fixed under warranty but the same issue happened against. The engineer that came out to look at it (from Miele) when it was out of warranty and said it would be around £300 to fix recommended a specific hotpoint... says it all!

£899! does it play crisis?

I would be claiming if the same issue reoccurred rather than accepting the invoice for £300

I would happily spend the afternoon having a chat to them about the merits of them paying for the repair together with how it relates to the sale of goods act (as was) or the the consumer rights act (as is)

I bought this exact machine a few months ago and had nothing but trouble with it having the engineer visit 3 times as the Express 20 program does not work and shows a heater fault. I paid just under £1000 for it (from o'gormans) and Miele just deny there is anything wrong with the machine! If you pay such alot for a machine and something goes wrong then it is doubly painful. My advise would be to go for another brand because if you are unfortunate enough to get a problem you are seriously on your own with Miele!

How can they deny an issue with a machine "a few months old" showing a "heater fault".

Your first point of call should be the retailer. Have you tried them?

Exactly - how can they deny it, but they have! They have tried to say ive used too much/too little detergent, my clothes were too soiled (not!) too many clothes (I've weighed them!) They occasionally reply to my emails but constantly fob me off when they do. The machine tells you if you are doing anything wrong like the detergent thing i mentioned earlier and compensates by adding more water if needed yet they refuse to replace the heater or exchange the machine! I got so fed up i went online to see what i could do about it and found the Retail Ombudsman who said to contact the Retailer, O'Gormans in Oxford and - guess what they have ignored me - twice! It has caused me so much stress i would never but any Miele product again!

My Beko is in a cold garage and has been for 6 years. I myself use 2 big bath towels per day have loads of washing inc workwear for myself also 2 infants at nursery and a wife. Constant daily washings inc trainers. 900 bangers haha wat a joke mines was 230.

Would you like to swap with me?! My Miele W1 washing machine works perfectly well - until you put clothes in it! It would make a great headline with Watchdog or Rip Off Britain - this will be my next step if the Consumer Rights Act dosent sort it out for me!

two words to cure it

trading standards

or

watchdog

Exactly! Such disappointment though, for years i had a cheapo Indesit and thought now the family had grown up i would treat myself! If i can warn even one person not to buy Miele then at least its something...... will take it further though as its totally unacceptable.

Sounds amazing, shame the Beko can't help with grammar or the typing.

If you live in extremely hard water areas, then washing machines become disposable, in spite of calgon and the like. They all seem to be cold feeds, no hot water input. I'd never spend more than 200 notes on one even if they come with p&l guarantees. Companys will try to wriggle out of liability, particularly if it's down to limescale.

Fair point - and the answer's a water softener. Can't understand why they aren't more popular, given how cheap they are to buy now, and run, and the benefits and savings they bring.

The 'instant door unlock' has got me sold on the Ebac. My pet hate waiting for the door to unlock at the end of the cycle. No idea why machines do that!

Certainly - the Tapworks AD11 or another of their models to suit the size of your household. They're much the same as the much more expensive Ecowater models but a fraction of the price. Best prices online. Around £430 ish for the AD11.
