Mid price range Bosch,Siemens.
Top quality ISE or Miele.
We had a Bosh last time, and the motor burnt out (the coils shorted to ground somewhere internally). We had a Miele Pet vacuum, and the motor burnt out. The motor is also on its way out on the CDA oven. Someone on this forum [kindly] had a spare Bosh motor going, just a day after we gave the old machine away on Freecyle and ordered the Whirlpool. We may have still been using that now if I wasn't in such a rush. We did go for the same model of vacuum again, but with an extended warranty. That way we have the old machine for all its spare parts.
We have a thing about motors not liking us
Thanks for the list. The Bosh was certainly quiet, so we may look into one of those again.
