Janna Posted March 11, 2012 Share Posted March 11, 2012 Hi, everyone-- I used to frequent this board and have been a member for the last 8 years. I haven't been on in some time for no particular reason other than to spend less time on the computer (this site can be quite monopolizing of time!). Anyway, I remember this board being full of some very smart people who offer perspectives that otherwise wouldn't be thought of for me. So, I thought I'd pop on here to ask for your opinions on a Bosch or a Miele washing machine. We have had a top loading (with an agitator) washing machine for the last 17 years, a Maytag, that has finally given out. And actually, the machine still works, it's the dryer that has stopped working efficiently. I have toyed with just getting the moisture sensor replaced (that's the problem) and continuing to use the things until they drop completely, but to be honest, I know that other machines these days will clean so much better, use so much less water, and be much more efficient than what I currently have. At the store today, while perusing the washer and dryers, I saw a Miele that dh and I are *very* interested in. The downside - *very* pricey. But then, we saw a Bosch. It has been discontinued and the floor model is all they have left. For *half the price* of the Miele, we can get this Bosch washer and dryer *plus two pedestals*. The problem is, I can't find any reviews for either of these models, nor a price for the Bosch to see if it's a good deal (the Miele seems to be the same no matter where I look, but there are no reviews). I have never had anything from these brands, but understand them to be good and reliable. Do you have experience with either of these brands - especially the washing and dryer machines? Are they worth the money? I know they're *supposed* to last a long time...but do they? Will they last the 17 years my Maytags have? Thanks for the help!
