    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.
