Twice now you've asked that question and I can't really give you a qualifiable answer. I would imagine the mere fact Siemens give a 10 year guarantee on it may stand in good stead toward their confidence in their motor. However I take a more pragmatic viewpoint towards this type of technology being as I have spent over 45 years of my working life fixing domestic appliances. I know from vast experience that if anything can go wrong it will go wrong. Only the time factor as to when this will occur and at what cost is harder to predict.
Chances are that if the motor holds out for 10 years the other vital components within may not be so resilient, including the very thing that controls the motor. LG have a motor that is also guaranteed 10 years but try getting LG to replace it free of charge is (so I'm led to believe anyway.
) another story.
Siemens and Bosch are the same product don't forget. You pay more for a Siemens though, hence why they can afford an extended guarantee period.
