Re: New washing machine yes or no?

We had a Zanussi that lasted over 20 years. We got rid of it when it last broke and the repairer said it could be repaired but it was now at the stage were spares were starting to get scarce and more expensive. So we got a new Mielle, the only brand he would recommend, partly because spares would be available for at least 10 years past end of production run but, mostly they are really good and reliable units. It is much quieter than the old unit but does only have cold feed so can't mix hot/cold like the Zanussi. (Mind you then gas was so much cheaper than electricity it made sense.)


He also recommends not running at the top spin speeds but just below them. That was easy on the Zanussi with a separate rotary spin speed control, less so on the Mielle but we are happy with the purchase. We also were told not to go for the bigger capacity units as 7kg would be close to double the capacity of the Zanussi.
