So glad I opened this thread up now (and thanks to the powrrs that be for not blacklisting me for it not being strictly BB material and potentially deserving of a place on STW :grin:

Anyway... Johhnystorm. After your mention last night of repair. I mulled it over and relaised I'm getting rid of a Rolls Royce to be potentially going back to a Daihatsu or Jeep and all the problems that come with.

This morning, woke up and convinced the wife we need to be paying the callout charge and just get them (Miele... apparently pronounced Melee) to come and look. Got told "I'm not paying that call out charge etc etc"... Byt then she gives Miele a call and they've done a deal of 1 year cover for £199 including callout :-bd Here's to IA* another 10 years of the same washer...

Thanks all for Bearing with me

My Mum's Miele was in storage between house moves and she too couldn't get anyone to give the machine a look over before it was reinstalled. When she contacted Miele they seemed almost insulted that she felt it would be an issue. I'm pretty sure she said that Miele don't supply parts to independent dealers. I guess you have to weigh up the cost of £80 and a repair versus £XXX for a new one.

FWIW when my Bosch dishwasher started playing up I did what would with my bike and trawled forums to find the answer and bought the part cheap online. :lol:

If you junk your old machine, remember to strip out the drum and make yourself a nice firepit for the garden :-bd
