Miele Dishwasher Reliabiilty
We plan to go under contract on the construction of a home soon.
In my old house I had a Bosch 500 series that I was fairly happy with. I did have a problem with the door not operating as specified. It would either fall all the way down or wouldn't stay open when it should. After three service calls - they finally fixed it.
However - I was still happy with the unit, the noise it produced, etc.
So, when planning out the new house I was going to get the top of the line fully integrated bosch.
However, after visiting two different appliance stores - each one keeps recommending Miele - not sure if their margins on Miele are better. The basic comment they tell me is that the Miele cleans better (Honestly, bosch was clean enough for me). And that the Miele is built much better - to the point that it will last 18 years where I will be lucky to get 10 years of of my Bosch.
The difference in price between the comperable fully integrated models is about $600.
Now if that gets me an extra 8 years of life - well then I am interested and it is a slam dunk.
So the question I have is for those who have owned a Miele dishwasher for over 10 years - do you end up needing repairs? Do they actually last 18 years or so?
