  1. My trusty Siemens washing machine has given up the ghost after 9 1/2 years service- it still looks as good as new but won't even turn on and I have washing stuck in the drum. As it will cost over £100 to get it fixed - callout alone is £95- I am looking at getting a new machine. I want a long warranty , it least 5 years but I am 9 years behind the times as far as washing machine technology is concerned so it's all a bit confusing. I have seen Aeg machines that offer a 5 year warranty but my new build house is equipped with Aeg fridge, freezer and dishwasher and to be honest I am no impressed with the quality. All the drawers in the freezer have broken as has the door tray in the fridge and the dishwasher lower basket is for ever coming off its rails and the door seal comes off. I was wondering if anyone knows how well their washing machines last? I am tempted by Siemens again as I have been very happy with mine until it just completely gave up the ghost on my return from holiday. My old machine served a large family with 3 children but now I only have one left at home and she will be leaving for uni next year so size is not as important as it used to be. The Aeg has steam - is this really useful or just a gimmick? We are not a family who wears clothes for one day and then washes them ( apart from underwear obviously) but if I didn't have a wool wash or hand wash programme then certain items of clothing would live in the bottom of the washing basket! Any help or tips anyone?
