What's the model is your Aeg fussychica?

I have a Miele, nearly 10 yrs old. I got it at a discount and it is good BUT - I wouldnt buy one again. They are just too expensive... Heard lots of good things about John Lewis machines.

We are a family of 4 so is being used alot. When I next buy I will buy one with a bigger drum as well......

I think if you started a thread asking about newly bought miele's you'd get plenty of replies, the thing is they last so damn long that the majority of owners have had them a good while.

Also, any old washing machine - however shitty - is more than likely to perform just fine for the first year...

Has anyone bought a Miele in the last year? Everyone is saying they are good but these all seem to be later models not the most recent models? Has anyone got a 6kg Lg direct drive? People have said the Lg's are good but all have been the larger machines.

As the proud owner of a Miele, I can say with truth that I am passionate about it. I've had it for around 5 years and still stroke it affectionately everytime I use it. Indeed, I tell DH that should we split up our primary custody battle would be over the washing machine.

Yes - an AEG with 7kg load, 1400 spin and variable time/temp/spin - worth every penny. Mine beeps at the end of the cycle but this can be disabled on my machine - have you checked you instruction DoIt to see if yours does too?

Dont worry
the miele will last bt least 15 years!

notMarlene Mon 28-Jan-13 22:24:12

yeah, the variables on the cycles are excellent.

notMarlene Mon 28-Jan-13 22:23:16

My miele beeps at teh end of the cycle, but only if you want it to. It's lovely and quiet, like a deep purr.

My Miele is going strong after over 10 years. We had someone come and look over it as it had a leaky seal, while it was still in its 10yr parts and labour warranty (free!). He looked at the information stored on the chip, and told us it had done as many cycles as they would expect for a 20 yo machine.

The cycles are really useful with lots of variables, and you can have a buzzer, if you want, or turn it off if you don't want it. It was expensive, but has lasted me so long, and been so reliable.

I bought Samsung eco bubble last year. I love it

6 of us and it's great.

oooggs Mon 28-Jan-13 21:27:44

love my LG 8kg direct drive - fantastic bit of kit - especially as there are 6 of us!!

Can't recommend a particular model but get one with a time delay function, so very handy.

Don't get a washer/dryer if you want to dry clothes. I've had four or five and they all without fail crease clothes. Makes me a bit ragey.

Jenijena Mon 28-Jan-13 21:08:18

I loe my Miele washing/dryer, but the price it cost, it better last 15 years!

napkin Mon 28-Jan-13 21:03:16

I looked at which but rather know what people think and their personal opinion but thanks for the advice.

My Bosch machine beeps at the end of the cycle. It is SO ANNOYING. Check whether any machine you plan to buy does this, I wish I had. Other than that great machine.

Also, key features for me are being able to have any programme run at any temperature. I had a machine once that had a separate temperature setting and I loved it.

I think that hotpoints aren't great, and candy is the same machine essentially.

Thanks for having a look for me Floralnomad.

Floralnomad Mon 28-Jan-13 20:35:05

Mine is a 7kg ,and I don't think they make the exact model anymore ( just looked online) . I know they do 6kg ones ,and I agree they are very quiet.

napkin Mon 28-Jan-13 20:34:02

Has anyone got any model numbers for me to have a look at?thanks

napkin Mon 28-Jan-13 20:32:49

Is any of your Lg direct drives 6kg. Want a smallish drum as find it hard to fill a large

hopethesnowgoessoon Mon 28-Jan-13 19:56:38

Lg direct drive here also and its great. So quiet compared to most so great if it is on the kitchen like mine rather than a utility

notMarlene Mon 28-Jan-13 19:55:17

I don't I'm afraid, I'm not in the UK either. Second had ones are well worth looking at.

MInes 6 now and as good as new, never had the tiniest problem ,toutches wood>. MIll replaced hers when it was 15, not because there was anything wrong with it, just 'cause she's a snob.
