    Brand isn't important, levels are. They all have cheap and cheerful ranges that fail early, or the option to pay for a better model that has better longevity.

    Work out your budget, and get the cheapest version of the quality level you can afford - rather than the most expensive model of the level below.

    There are different Bosch as well some made in Germany and some in Spain one isn’t as good, I’ll let you figure that out.

    Our experience with Germany made Bosch and Miele appliances has been very good. Yes, there is the price shock when you buy but the performance is worth it. Bosch washing machine is 5 years old, Miele hoover is 6 years old and Miele dishwasher is over a decade old.

    Our Bosch fridge freezer was made in Turkey. I forget the exact timescale, but I think it lasted about two or three years before it went pop.

    I don't think Bosch are quite what they used to be especially in the lower tier product ranges.
    I also wouldn't discount the koreans especially the LG washing machines

    My Beko fridge freezer, also made in Turkey, is over 5 years old and still performing flawlessly. Just the luck of the draw, I suppose.

    Nah, but possibility of greater durability: maybe.
    Regardless, the buyer is covered for 6 years from purchase to present an inadequate durability claim to the retailer, unless the buyer lives in Scotland.

    What does OP mean. Do you have to select the brand of appliances when you are buying a property? I'd suggest, buy a pre owned property. Then see what appliances came with it, eg built-in kitchen or not. Then worry about brand decisions.

    AEG has gone down hill ever since being owned by Electrolux. So zanussi and aeg both have the Same parts in them. I would get bosch.

    Tend to agree with this with my recent experiences with AEG stuff too.

    OP, if you are set on AEG then John Lewis own branded washers and dryers are rebadged AEG but a few £ cheaper.

    Maybe the builder has a deal on AEG. I'm pretty loyal with Bosch for a mix of performance, reliability and repairability. When kitchen was redone went all Bosch. No repairs needed for 5 years then... It's been easy to DIY replace my oven elements. Had a halogen hob plate replaced by a white goods repairman (could have been DIY but wiring connector had a design change so got the pro in). The only concerning thing was that when the plate failed it was stuck fully ON! Got unstuck with Bosch cooker hood, the extractor fan motor failed at about 9 years. Bosch pretended to stock a replacement, took my order then strung me along for 5 weeks. This was long before current shortages. Ended up having to buy an entire new cooker hood of identical exterior design which was a bit of a faff to DIY install.

    If you can go Bosch for say a 20% price premium over AEG, I'd do that.

    Definitely Bosch over AEG due to better longevity and performance in my experience
