That does ring a bell, ended up with a Bosch series 6 which I'm really happy with, hopefully it lasts!
My Samsung white goods all failed in year 2-3 and the warranty was ok but others have said they dont like paying out so who knows
Weren't they leaking and people were saying its a pump design fault but also avoid the bosch group ones with the plastic bottom inner apparantly
You may want to check the drum size on this machine. Although this has 8kg capacity, the drum size is quite small (depth) and so limits load size for bedding etc. 5 year warranty is great, when it goes wrong after 5 years it’s time to replace with new machine.
I have a 7 year old iq300 and similar tumble drier. If this is like mine you will need the 5 year guarantee. The touch panels failed on both machines after three years and needed replacing. Both are again developing faults with the touch panels. Shame on you Siemens and buyer beware. Next time I will buy Samsung (made in Poland). Thought of LG but they are made in China.
