Asko W6424 or Miele W1612
I have done a search and it seems the last time these machines were talked about and/or compared was back in 2010; so I am wondering if there are any new user comments or reviews?
It seems both machines are very similar in terms of its operations and features except the 120V (Miele) versus the 240V (Asko), the delayed start (Asko) versus the non-delayed start (Miele), and the rubber seal (Miele) versus the non-rubber seal (Asko).
I am also drawn to the reverse tumble feature on the matching Miele dryer. Does this feature work? I am tired of my sheets coming out balled and wrinkly, damp in some parts and dry on others. I have to constantly stop my dryer, pull out my sheets, give it a few flicks, and then put it back in in an effort to encourage even drying.
Am I missing anything else? Asko provides a 3 year warranty while Miele provides a 1 year warranty. Price wise the Miele is about $300 more after you factor in the stacking kit etc. (stacking kit comes included with Asko).
Would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks in advance
