I know that I'll get slated for this by the "A grand for a washing machine?? I could buy a house, a car and a new wife/husband for less than that!!" brigade but for those that appreciate a bit of quality, here goes.

John Lewis are offering a Miele WKH122WPS for £1209. This is before cash back of £200 and the deal also includes an additional 3 years warranty and a year's supply of the Miele detergent. The JL price is £190 cheaper than Miele (£1399) whereas most of their prices match Miele. This made me go for the deal. The cashback arrived within a week of my making the claim which was better than I expected. A year's supply of detergent - it needs to be claimed in two parts - also arrived within a matter of days of making the claim. Be careful because the detergent package is quite large and needs a fair amount of storage space so any buyer may want to claim a few months into the deal for the second part if you are tight for space.

I won't bore you all with reams of details but this is the first para from the JL webpage -
"The Miele WKH122WPS freestanding washing machine has smart, electronic control and automatic load recognition. It features automatic detergent dispensing, 17 different programmes and multiple extra options designed to ensure that it leaves all your clothes and washable fabrics looking and feeling great. It has a 24-hour delay start function and, with an A+++ rating for energy efficiency, it's kind to the environment and to your pocket."

More can be found on the JL link and at Miele here -

When my old Miele recently gave up the ghost I looked into getting it repaired but as it would have cost upwards of £250 with no guarantee that something else wouldn't go wrong in a few weeks/months I bit the bullet and looked for a new Miele after the old one gave up after 16 years of faultless use at an original cost of £552. This new one seemed a good deal to me although there are cheaper Miele models. Note that the warranty can be extended from 5 to 10 years at a cost of £149. So I now have a washing machine that will last me 10 years at a cost of marginally over £2 a week.

For all you Ferrari, Porsche haters when a Focus will do the job this deal won't be for you but for those that appreciate a bit of quality go for it!

It's knowing where to look

Miele's white goods will last you many years, mine are still going. I agree you pay a lot more money but its the reliability you will have for years.

What's wrong with LG washing machines? They have great build quality, large loads, whisper quiet, energy efficient, stylish, modern innovations bristling with reliable, up to date technology. The machines themselves are extremely reliable usually lasting around 10 years of daily use. And last but not least, even the entry level £300 model is good. With all this in mind, why spend shed loads on a Miele?

Have LG even been making washing machines for 10 years to qualify your reliability statement?

Samsung/Panasonic/LG direct drive machines (sharing tech) have poor motor reliability - newish tech still in its infancy. My mate bought a Samsung and persuaded his parents to do the same - they've had 7 repairs between them. No, i'm not an Apple loving Samsung hater either.

Miele washing machines are built to last. 10 years isn't that impressive - I got 16 years out of our last Bosch (retired it prematurely when it started making noises but still washed ok), admittedly Bosch don't make them like that any more.

And most machines have 5 years parts and labour warranty. (On everything)

​realistically people pay for not having the hassle of waiting for technician to come and fix the washing machine, wasting a day off work then sometimes they don't turn up.
So having had a miele for the last 10 years with not a single issue I would buy again.
hot deal for me

Unless recently changed, that's a parts only warranty on the drive after 3 years, so it will cost a bomb to pay the labour.

LG Washing machines have been available in the UK since 1999.

Possibly......but they're nothing like as reliable as Miele.

% faults after 10 years (Which?):
Miele 8%
LG 22%

What about the rest of it?

It would be interesting to see the HOTS/COLDS split between Miele owners and those who have never owned a Miele and seen the benefits of 10+ years longevity.
As I said originally, this could be an "Apple" thread lol.

I'm a Miele owner and our machine is reassuringly built like a tank, like Volvos used to be. Voted hot, although our Miele cost us less than half what this one does. Ours was £800 RRP and we got it for just over £500 with a 5 year warranty, after discounts and cashback.

5 years parts and labour on everything else with LG and 10 years parts on motor.
I totally agree, I think Miele are the best you can buy no question of that but also cost over twice the price! Just as a fairer comparison, the Miele cheaper machines start around £600 with a 2 year warranty which is good value but the equivalent LG would be £450 and have the 5-10 warranty. All personal opinion and how much you can afford to spend.
