Need new washer - comparing Miele W4842 vs W4802
My 2006 LG Tromm is leaking after every wash now and after 4 and half years of mold/mildrew and medicore performance, I'm ready to go shopping for something that hopefully will last longer. What is the difference between Miele W4842 vs the W4802? From the Miele site, the W4842 has more wash settings and a fancier control panel than the W4802. But is the W4802 control panel (since it is less complicated) less likely to need repair? I'm approaching not so much from the money angle but from the ease of use, possible less repair-prone angle - if that makes sense.
I live in southern California and do the wash for my family and typically do one load a day and 5-8 loads on the weekend.
Also, does anyone recommend the RemoteVision extended warrenty? Does it cover everything (parts and labor) for 5 years?
Thank you for your help!
