We have Bosch WAE  24361, for 9 years, which already did over 4000 washing cycles for us, and still running strong. We have done some repairs, some on our own, some in shop. We replaced shock absorbers, motor carbon brushes, and motor bearings. Tub bearings seem to be in good shape. Some tedious maintenance cleaning and a bit of descaling had to be done along the line.  Curious of other people with similar experiences. Thanks.

11 years old and about 5000 washing cycles. Had to replace carbon brushes and drain pump this year, and now it is in top shape.

Used once Dr. Beckmanns service it washing machine cleaner, which seemed to be beneficial.

Drum bearings wore out finally. 

Can not decide if we should replace drum bearins or just buy new mid range model.


One thing i noticed is that new machine drums nowday seem smaller.

Guess this is where durability ends.


Some clearances developed is who knows where, with loud mechanical noise as consequence.


So we decided, new Miele WCA 030. Arriving today.


I appreciate Andy's comments about Miele new range, which made me think about it for half a day.


But target price range was determining factor.


Honestly, if it last  10 years, i will be happy.
