Thing is with Miele there is very rarely an issue. Our washer is 13 years old. Still waiting fir the 1st issue. Still ludicrously quiet.
Good machines but not sure we've had the best of luck.
We had free extended 5, 5 and 10 year warranties on our Miele dishwasher (previously Bosch until it conked out), tumble dryer and washing machine respectively.
I had to replace a part in the Miele dishwasher (some kind of ball valve device below the 'filter' which was leaking) as water was not circulating properly, arms not spinning well, this was at around 6 years, shortly after it developed a leak from somewhere not prevented by the bulky device at the end of the inlet hose. The dishwasher rarely dried crockery that well.
The tumble dryer became incredibly noisy after 6-7 years - some carbon bushes had worn down and needed replacing I think. £200 or so to fix I think. Next the condenser unit failed with loss of integrity of the rubber seals which had become too flat to make the unit waterproof - yes another leak and £250 for a replacement condenser unit after paying for an engineer visit which failed to fix the problem.
The washing machine used to be very quiet but is now incredibly noisy - in 2 minds whether or not to get them to look at it out of warranty (2007 purchase), perhaps something has come loose inside when it was moved around by the builders (who almost chucked the transport rods that fell off in a skip!!). Grey rubber seal has a small hole brewing too.
I'd certainly buy another Miele, but some of the cheaper white goods do seem to be utter bargains if they get the job done.
