Bit about The Indesit Company HERE
There is a considerable degree of cross-badging between the different names, but the single biggest problem is electronics, which fall over for fun. This is closely followed by heater failures and leaks.
Basically, the machines have been cost engineered down to the marrow in
the bone, the result is shocking reliablity. If one of these gets to be three years old, it's positively geriatric.
A disgraceful state of affairs - people need to learn that they will
get what they pay for. A two to three year life cycle is simply not acceptable.
It could be worse, you could be looking at a Chinese one.
