Well after trolling many websites and reading what seemed like hundreds of reviews and a lot of reviews from these forums and website, we decided for sure on a Miele.
We were going to get the W3740 but nowhere seemed to have one in stock. We needed to ditch our old Indesit quickly due to constant break downs and with having a baby in tow, living without a washing machine was a no brainer.
So looking at Buywise of Banbury * Official Miele Stockist (just up the road from us) we saw they were very well priced.
We saw the W1714 for £589.00 and at that price who were we to argue
As you can see it has very clean lines and we were very impressed when it arrived. The chaps disconnected and took away our old one and installed the new one for us.
After running the machine on empty for a cycle it stopped asking us if we have removed the transit bolts and gave us the kind option of having the menu in english, which is always a bonus.
After running a load of the babies clothes we were in a away not suprised by how quiet the machine was, as everyones reviews of Miele machines were correct. It's very quiet. It hardly moves an inch either.
A full towel wash and I can now believe that mini video of the pound coin on edge not falling over. After the towels had finished the cycle, my wife (not joke) came running in telling me to feel how dry the towels were. Yep they were a sight drier than they had ever been before after coming out of a washing machine. I suppose that is where the 1400 spin cycle helps.
We just have to make sure now, we run a maintanence wash every month and clean the filters and detergent draw.
As you can tell we are very happy with our purchase and with getting a free 5 year warantee with it, it all adds up to a very pleasing purchase.
I would recommend this machine to everyone and though it may be at the cheaper end of the Miele market you will not be disappointed and will instantly see where you extra money has gone over buying an inferior product.
No more Indesit for us
On a closing note, would just like to say many thanks to WasherHelp on here as his advice was invaluable in our descision to go for a Miele machine. Cheers chap!
