what is the great price?!

£1,390....errrrrrr.....hmmmmm....cant see it getting too hot

to be fair, its not a bad price for that specific machine, but an expensive washer dryer

should last 10-15 years what happens if it dont??. do they replace it if not then no way id spend that money on a "should"

I don't see the point in a washer that last 20 years, think how much better and more efficient a more modern one will be. I'd sooner risk buying cheaper ones more often

I have always had miele appliances and they have lasted years. However I bought a pair of ovens - a microwave oven and fan-oven - three years ago and they have constantly broken down - they were really expensive and now I regret not buying another make. It costs £100 to get the engineer out each time now they are out of warranty. They have been a real waste of money.

What makes you think a more modern one will be better and more efficient?

A point on washing machines. I bought one last year and spent ages researching looking for one. I found that the EU has a minimum washes diktat for them, 1100. This is for the life of the machine, so the more you wash the shorter the life span of the machine.

Wash twice a week and theoretically it should last 10 yrs +, though in reality it won't. This is the reason, I think, that the same machine can have a different lifetime in years in different households.

I also discovered that many manufacturers (cheap & more expensive) use sealed tubs to meet EU waste targets. If the tub bearings (£10-20) go it needs a new tub (£200), so you buy a new one. Bad for the environment, but good for manufacturers. I eventually went for a cheap Logik from Currys due to the availability of spares and a split tub that can be repaired relatively cheaply.

Pricier should mean better, but how often you use it does have a large bearing on lifetime of the machine.

Evolving technology

Anything by Miele lasts for years. I have 2 fridge freezers and a washing machine. 1 of my fridge freezers i've had for 13 yrs and no problems.

Miele are definitely better than other makes, but not three times as good, as it would have to be to justify this price.

I am also puzzled by the washes 6kg but dries only 3Kg thing. That only works out if the clothes are half dirt when they go in.

For that price I would want a washer/dryer, fridge freezer and cooker! Haha

Would it be savvy to buy say a £300 washer dryer at john Lewis and purchase their 5 year warranty at £100. That way even if the washing machine lasts 5 years, over 15 years it would cost you £1200. This Meile will cost £1400 and May not last 15 years. You never know, the one(s) you buy from the John Lewis approach may last more than 5 years saving even more over the next 15 years. Hope that makes sense - sorry if I am being dimension haven't thought of through very well

i know someone who had one of these... it didn't last 5 yrs. i had a £400 hotpoint washer/dryer. it lasted 20+ yrs, and it was probably the house move than broke it.

I have had these a few years now, not sure what the newer models are like??? oO

our beko,albeit only a washer has done 7 years so far, only 180, separate dryer was 140, so 320 all in, I could have 4 of that for this price, so 28 years for the same price! No thanks Meile!

Does it come with a maid at that pice?

sorry but some people really do have more money than sense.

As if get this off here far too much money

Evolving technology

simont_space #8 is on the right track with EU control over everything. It means that "evolving technology" in EU terms means less robust washing machines that are unlikely to last anything like as long as their predecessors. We had 30 years out of a Servis. It didn't pretend to be clever and only needed replacement brushes and an RF filter. It died of a failed drum seal. You won't get that sort of life out of a modern machine.

I would 100% agree that modern machines aren't built to last, they are built for ease of manufacturing. That generally means that parts are throw away and if it involves the drum then it probably means a new machine.
However, the technology itself does continually improve. New machines will inherently be more efficient, probably quieter and probably better at washing/drying. Would I buy a £1400 washing machine to last 15 years? No. I'd prefer to buy two over that period. But maybe things will change.

Perhaps, but equally I have a Siemens washing machine and a Siemens fridge freezer, both of which are approaching 20 years, and both are still working fine. Unfortunately though, such anecdotal evidence doesn't really mean much.

I have a Siemens washer that has lasted 15 years and a Miele dishwasher that seems good quality. However, unless you haven't the space, I would buy a separate washer and dryer as I think the combined ones are more prone to breaking.

At one time the John Lewis washers were made by AEG, though not sure if that is still the case. Samsung washers also often have a five year guarantee.

The crazy thing about the EU planet saving directives is in the long run it is worse for the environment ie more machines being built. My machine is on once per day and I get 2/3 yrs at most out of them. Last one cost me £170 on offer and is more efficient than the last.

"New machines will inherently be more efficient, probably quieter and probably better at washing/drying." I doubt if you'd find any evidence to prove that. Typically, "modern" programs use less water primarily because they have fewer rinse cycles. So you have to select an extra rinse to get rid of all the detergent. They'll spin for less time at a lower speed. So washing will either take longer to dry (shift energy use to tumble drier), or you'll need to do an extra spin cycle. EU directives are about the auto programs, not about reality.
There's no inherent about it. The assumption is flawed.

EU directives are directed at using less material and less energy. But if you need more of them you use more materials and energy. And if the energy saving programs need to be tinkered with, you use more energy. There's not much (if anything) comes out of the EU that stands up to close inspection.
