I purchased a Siemens WXL147AGB in June 2005. As of August 2014 i haven't suffered a single breakdown. The only problems I've had is a broken detergent tray door and three of the LCD bars on the display died I think in the first year. I live in a three person household and the machine is used 3-4 times per week. I use soda crystals with every wash and Dr beckitt 'Service It' every 90 days. How do Siemens machines of 2014 compare to the machines of 2005? Is the quality still present?

I would expect they won't be as good, though by how much I can't say. I'd say the same for any brand because all brands are constantly battling to drive down prices and reducing quality is one of the main tools. I'd recommend you take out the £1 trial offer at Which? and research which are the best machines currently. It's a very good offer - Which? £1 trial offer

Siemens are actually about to pull out of the domestic appliance market, so their name won't be appearing on white goods anymore in the not so distant future. Bosch and Neff will continue to appear.

I would certainly agree that the quality won't be as good. Every manufacturer has cut back to save on costs. But Neff, Bosch and Siemens machines, despite this, are still held in quite a high regard on the market. I guess in proportion with all the other manufacturers also dropping the quality, they're still a high end brand and have held the same spot in the (now lower quality) market.
