We bought our dryer, just recently , August 2017. 3 weeks later and the drum does not turn anymore. Have rung Miele , and I have to contact a local service agency. However I am disappointed in the fact that this dryer only lasted 3 weeks. I expected a little more than that. Our Simpson lasted 10 years, be it with two times a collapsed bearing. Drying wise , its ok, when it worked. Mainly used on warm air setting, otherwise wash is damp, as stated in manual, besides I am too lazy to separate every single piece.
Yes, lasted only 3 weeks before malfunctioning, for the money not good enough. We were planning to buy a Miele dishwasher to replace the old Westinghouse, but will be a BEKO now, even if the Miele is cheaper, they are not the same anymore for quality.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.

Very simple to use, does what it promises without fuss and has a useful range of programmes, although we mostly just use it on the basic Cottons programme.
Low operating cost means we can use it much more often than our old Vented dryer.
Towels come out much softer than with line drying.
Have used it without issue on delicates.
Easy to clean fluff filters.
Miele products have a reputation for quality and long life - we have had a Miele front-loader for 6 years and expect many more.
Higher initial cost, although on promotion the price came closer to that of a Condenser dryer (we needed to upgrade from a Vented dryer when we moved into a place where there was no provision for a Vented drier)
Yes, I recommend this product.
Miele jointly won the Top Brand award for clothes dryers. Miele has good test performance for its condenser and heat pump dryers and excellent owner satisfaction.
