Miele W487WPS to last for 20 years?? This is one of the worst product I have ever had. Took forever to wash a load, noisy, expensive and unreliable. I will pick any brand above Miele. The phrase 'Made in Germany' is such a myth!



All German made products are low in quality and high in price. A recent review from Drivetimes of the New York times has rated Mercesdes Benz & BMW the top 2 most unreliable cars! They are made in Germany! Funny that. Germany Quality?? Or is it more like German arrogance!

Not a very helpful review and not objective at all. You failed to say why the product is unreliable or substantiate any complaint. I can only speak from my own experience of owning several German products and found them to be far more substantial and reliable than anything made elsewhere. Only products from Japan come close.

Owned product for under a month? I smell a rat as a Miele has at least a two year guarantee- mine a has five year one. Some details of its failures would be informative and how the company responded.

Or just possibly this is an antagonistic, made-up review from a competitor? As for noisy and taking too long, my experience with my Miele is the exact opposite compared with previous cheaper machines- maybe you have not levelled it properly for instance, or have not removed the transit bolts- did you actually read the instructions?

well the miele w487 wps is my second miele washer(i bought my first miele washer when i was 19 years old,second hand from my grandmother). The first miele never failed, rally never until it was just over 24 years old. For almost 11 years i have the w487 wps, it was made for the future: 1800 rpm , the panels from the machine are made from anemal(can't rust), stainless steel tub!!! The whole machine is made from heavy materials which last and last . You can slam the door ,its made from steel and very thick glass, its an intillegent washer too. the machinekwows how much weight you put in and so how much wather it should use and how much time it needs to wash. It is a fast machine 1:26 h for a 95 degrees celcius wash. It is quiet 39 db for wash 60 db for spin at 1800 rpm .
This miele never broke down so far and did a lot of washings already (family of 6).

That is such a load of rubbish. Miele are still a family business in Germany, they make appliances to a quality NOT a price. I have personal seen machines that were over 30 years old and still going strong.Made in Germany is not a myth,,try the quality of "made in Italy"..then you can complain!!

Miele unreliable eh? Lets turn to super duper Indesit, Hotpoint, Beko and Servis then, because they are so damn reliable. No, I don't think they are.

I can understand that the machine isn't great, but tarring all German manufacturers with the same brush is just plain ignorant.
<br/>
<br/>For instance, have you ever tried an age washing machine? They're now owned by Electrolux and still made in Germany. Theoretically for people like this reviewer that would put people right off, but fact is they don't go wrong...
