      Overall opinion:

      At home, we have a Miele W 1714 washing machine and a Miele T 7744 C. Miele is the best brand for washing machines and dryers. It has a German origin. This means is very high quality!!! This also means that you have to pay a lot: 754.631 pounds. Since we are a family with 4 members, we definitely need it. A normal dishwasher lasts for 12-15 years while a Miele last for 20+ years. We like this washing machine a lot!!! It is easy to use, with all the options on the control panel. Even a clumsy student like me, knows how to use it :p. One thing I have to admit is that we had a little problem after 4-5 months. After the cycle had done, the door didn't want to open anymore. Luckily there was an emergency handle, so we could still use it. Miele came to our house after only 3 work days, repaired it, and it works fine now. So you don't only pay for the machine, but also for the good support. Miele rocks!!!

        Good cleaner, excellent value for money

        After years of using a Dyson it died a couple of months ago and I purchased a Hoover 2000W Dust Manager cleaner. It was a great price compared to the Dyson so decided to give it a go. It cleans up extremely well and is easy to empty, bagless. A bit disappointed with edge cleaning but the attachments ie edge cleaning, furniture and pet hair brush work well and are very quick and easy to attach. It has a stair stabiliser for added stability when cleaning stairs, but I have to say I found it a waste of space, a bit of a gimmick! The machine is medium weight, but it's big drawback is the little notch on the front with which one is supposed to lift and carry the machine, eg upstairs, it is not deep enough and impossible to hold the machine by the use of this notch. Unfortunately you will need both hands to carry it. Apart from this I rate this vacuum cleaner highly.

          Fantastic buy - expensive but worth it!

          We bought this Miele WM 6 months ago, and absolutely love it. No problems, and while I mostly use the 40oC wash and a short wash combo the results are excellent. Easy to use with pretty self explanatory buttons on the front (even my hubby can use it with no instructions!), and I love the way it tells you how long the program you've chosen is going to take, and once underway how long is remaining. Also, if you put in less clothing than a full load, it uses less water, and takes less time to spin, so it automatically alters the time remaining on it, and saves you water and electricity. All round a great buy, and although quite an expensive machine, well worth it. Hopefully it'll last as long as Miele claim in their brochure - 20 years, which will make it a really great buy all round.
