Why are the European manufacturers leaving the US W/D market?
Bosch discontinued their full sized Vision series.
Not Miele is discontinuing their full sized units.
I bought a pair of Bosch Vision for my tenants in our rental house. This is above and beyond what is done in a typical rental house but I did it any rate. My tenants have been very happy with the machine. I thought they were really good products for the price.
I have been eyeing the Miele full size machines for when my Asko dies. It looks like they are done with the full sized W/D market. If Miele does not have a full sized machine, I will replace Asko with the Miele 220V model. I need a machine that heats the water to at least 160F.
Is the price such that Miele/Bosch simply cannot compete with LG, Samsung and such? Does anyone know?
