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.
