I am moving into my new home at the end of the month and need a washer/dryer. My top priority, aside from getting clothes clean, is a great delicate cycle to wash most of the clothes I would otherwise dry clean. This does not include items that clearly should ONLY be dry cleaned.

I have narrowed it down to a used Miele set or a new Whirlpool Duet set.

For those of you who have recently purchased a new washer/dryer, what factors played into your decision?

Pros for Miele:
  • Reviews indicate it is excellent for delicates.
  • Lower purchase price.

Pros for Whirlpool:
  • Current models with warranty.
  • Uniformly excellent reviews.

Cons for Miele:
  • No warranty and parts may eventually be hard to get.

Cons for Whirlpool:
  • Higher purchase price.
