Is it worth it replacing Bosch Axiss with Miele or what?
I have a year old Bosch Axxiss washer and vented dryer. I am not happy with either.
The washer does not seem to perform as well as 20-year old Bosch FL I used to have. I tried different detergents, including Persil, adding sodium percarbonate, adding Borax, etc. Persil performs best, but I really dislike the smell, I prefer to use Free and Clear (Purex or any other). If Miele washes better, can I drop Persil and use "regular" run of the the mill Free and Clear for good results? And not have to run "Sanitize" as often (because other cycles do not quite clean as well)? Is there a Miele that just lets one set a specific temperature for wash and rinse and duration of the cycle? Or some other brand washer that allows that?
The dryer gets a single queen sized duvet cover tangled into a tight ball - every time (with dry exterior, wet center). I understand Miele dryer tumbles differently - would it avoid this problem?
Or would the incremental benefit of Miele to be too slim to deal with the hassle (and cost) and I should just stick it out with Bosch Axxiss? Should I research Asko? I do not need large capacity, Bosch Axxiss size is fine.
Would greatly appreciate your suggestions.
