Get a Miele or no?
Hi everyone, I currently own a Frigidaire Gallery pair (9 years) that have served me well. No repairs and my laundry seems clean (whites seem white etc ...).
I have been thinking about upgrading them as I know the newer machines probably outperform these hands down. I would also like more room in the drum. I would also like if my sheets didn't roll up into a ball when I dry them ... sigh... IÂm pretty picky about laundry and figure IÂd benefit from a great machine (clean laundry matters to me a lot).
I just noticed Miele Canada is offering $1,000 off if you buy a pair direct from them. I wouldn't have considered buying a new pair so quickly but that seems like a pretty great deal. I would be looking at the W4840 and matching gas dryer. I have a couple of questions:
1) If you own a Miele W4840 are you happy with it? I have read both good and bad reviews - not sure what to believe.
2) The way my current laundry room is set up the doors would open backwards for me (washer must be on the left). If you have them this way is it a bother? IÂm wondering how much that will annoy me.
3) Would I be better to shop around for another brand (ie. Bosch) where the door would open with a left side hinge?
4) I know my current exhaust pipe has 4 bends in it but it is rigid metal Â does anyone know if that is acceptable for the Miele gas dryer? I didnÂt see any installation documents on the website.
Thanks for any input!
