When moving house recently I persuaded my husband that we should invest in a decent washing machine, after years of living in rented accommodation and not being able to choose! So after research we decided on a W series Miele. It was not cheap but I have not regretted it for a moment!
It is super energy efficient, and the machine is so quiet that at first I kept thinking I'd forgotten to switch it on!
The machine feels sturdy and well built, the delivery men said they can tell how good the quality is by the weight when compared to cheaper brands. One of the reasons I was attracted to Miele is that the outer drum is metal, rather than plastic (almost every other brand uses a plastic outer drum which can be pierced by a coin or other stray object!). It also has a 'honeycomb' drum, which is much more gentle on clothes than the conventional washing machine drums (my old machine left lots of holes in my clothes!)
I love the choice of programmes, we use washable nappies for our little one and I have found that they come much much cleaner in this machine than in my old Beko, and whereas I used to have to put them on at least one extra rinse cycle to get all the detergent out, the Miele is clever enough to keep rinsing until they are clear of detergent! Yay! Most often for clothes I use the 'Automatic Plus' programme which works out the amount of water and the wash rhythm depending on the weight and mix of the clothes. I also use the shirts option for my husband's shirts and this is great as it uses a gentler spin.
All is all this has been a great buy, I would definitely recommend Miele. I got a free upgraded warranty with it so peace of mind for 5 years.
