We bought a candy go 1482 about 6 months ago and its fab. Think it was about £200. 8kg fast wash and a really energy efficient wash that takes 3 hours but doesnt cost much.

8kg drum shockenvy

I am very very happy with our John Lewis one, bought for £379 recently. Used to decide smile

AccidentalMum Thu 02-Oct-08 20:41:44 it because it rinses really well, fits loads it but still cleans well, has an energy efficient wash, like PP's, you can customise the programs in lots of different ways, ummm, 3 year guarantee and hopefully, John Lewis won't go under!

Washerhelp man says buy a Miele if you can afford to smile

ScummyMummy Thu 02-Oct-08 21:25:51

have the cheapest miele because frogs on here said that's what her mum has and it's great (I think, could be misremembering). It is great.

We've had a Miele for 9 years+. Being used several times a day (for drying too, I know, not eco-friendly), only once had to have someone in and it was a v minor thing.
