All I had to do was pop in washing machine reviews into google and what pops up as the No.1 result. Yep https://www.washerhelp.co.uk/ <fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/default_biggrin.png

We are looking into buying a new machine (My wife and I).

We currently own the Indesit W103 and while it has served us well for the past 3 years (Moving in gift from the outlawz) it is now starting to cause more problems than it's worth. The belt has come off 3-4 times in 4 months. The pump clogged, it stopped draining properly and the programme select had a mid life crisis and decided it would do as it please. Though we are very fortunate that where we live, we have a genuine and reliable washing machine repair man. £10 call out and hardly any labour, so can't compain. I would prefer not to have to rely on his services to get by.

This machine served us well until about 5.5 months ago when our Son arrived. Now we (well my wife) uses the machine a lot at least once a day if not 2 or even 3 times depending on how grubby we are <fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/default_wink.png this is when we have started noticing that the reliability of the machine isn't quite what we had hoped.

From reading your reviews and thoughts on a wide variety of machines and looking at the Which reviews I would now not buy an indesit machine from choice.

I have read (and downloaded you video clips) regarding the Miele W3740. This does indeed look like a superior machine and I would say this is at the top end of our budget. Being £759.99 on Currys. I take it this machine would handle our washing load and ask for more <fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/default_smile.png

My questions are these:

Could you recommend a machine that would be suitable for a family of 3 around the £400 mark

Could you recommend a machine that would be suitable for a family of 3 around the £600 mark

I know spending less in the near future may mean spending more in the long term, just it would give us a range of options.

Basically I could spend a little now or spend a lot.

However with Miele offering an extended 10 year guarantee at the moment, is this just too good a deal to pass up?

You time and response is much appreciated.

Cheers!

We can get a W3240 for £699.99 and would be tempted however I read somewhere on here that they are being discontinued.

Or a W4144 for £699.99 and that does look really good. Again however as I think you pointed out it wont do so well under a work top and though at the moment that is no problem at the moment it maybe in the future.

I think I also prefer the look of teh W3740, so I think it is off to Currys for the W3740 and have our lovely ;) Indesit taken away for free.

Lots of money but with the 10 year garauntee until the end of July a good buy all the same.

Keep up the top work on your website chap as I have found it very very useful when looking for a new machine. The wife like the look of the Hotpoint Aquaris but after reading your thoughts and the reviews on Which we decided against that ;)

Slight change of plan here.

After looking at the differences between the W1714 and the W3740 we have decided to go for the W1714. mainly due to the fact we can get it for £589.00.

So once it is here, I will let you know our thoughts on the machine :D

Only differences are one is "modern" and one is not and the 1714 does not have Handwash / Silks option. This is the main one.

The Others are here

Thanks. The W 3740 also has Direct enamel sides which could be useful depending on siting. If it's going under a worktop where the sides won't be exposed then it isn't necessary which is one reason Miele have been prepared to reduce costs by only putting direct enamel on the front of some cheaper models. The W 3740 also has a much better door, made of stainless, but the other still has a tough door (don't let the plastic fool you into thinking it's not tough). Miele have definitely reduced production costs on the newer designs but they are still high quality Miele washing machines and it's quite a saving.
