want one with an lcd screen (to tell me how much longer i've got! and child lock!...) but not absolutely necessary.... i think the old one is completely dead and dc2 is in the middle of trying to stay dry at night!!!!!
Well find us a Miele under £300, CD, & we're away!
bea, in fact I think that Comet one is the same as mine - not the one I linked to before (that has a bigger LED display) - I got mine from Comet too, they delivered it pretty fast & it's been brilliant.
i got a john lewis one a coupel of months ago. seems fine, much quieter than previous hotpoint. £270. don't pay them to take your old one away, they couldn't fit it on and 10 mins after they'd gone somebody knocked on door and took it for scrap.
