Legendary German build quality, washing performance, spin dry performance
Expensive, but like anything else you only get what you pay for.
Miele W487WPS washing machines are designed to last 20 years of use and a lot are still going after 30. This is down to the legendary German build-quality. You might think, what is the point in paying a lot of money for a washing machine, well the first time you use this washing machine you will be amazed at the wash performance and with this washing machine having a 1800rpm spin the clothes are hardly damp.
Also, have a look at the work that has just went into the door on this washing machine. You can see that this will take years and years of slamming and opening. I would reccomend visiting the Miele web site at www.miele.co.uk and see all the features that they have on. One of the features that I find useful is the light that comes on when you switch the washing machine on and the light also comes on when you are emptying it. You will never leave another sock in the washing machine again.
How many British-built washing machines last that long? I had a Hotpoint washing machine previous to this and I had it 8 years and in that time it had broke down 6 times, ranging from buttons sticking in when it was only a month old, new door catches after 2 years, set after set of brushes and then finally the plastic casing where the draw sits had cracked, causing water to leak all over the kitchen.
With the Miele W487WPS, the motor in it has not got brushes in it so it will never need a set of brushes bought for it. At the time when I purchased the Miele, there was a promotion on from Miele for a free 10 year parts and labour warranty (that is having faith in the quality of these washing machines). I would reccomend anyone who wants probably the best washing machines you can buy, then you should buy this, you won't be disapointed.
