Old? Not A Bit.

My W1070 is "old", but the 1900 series was only discontinued in the middle to late 1990's IIRC.

The w1926 and later w1986 were the largest capacity Miele washing machines sold until the 30XX and 48XX series that debuted about a year ago.

While going from the standard 5kg Miele to 6kg for the above may not sound like a huge leap, it meant one could do a bit more washing and get the thing over with at one time.

Some prefer the w1926 over the w1986 because the former had more user friendly controls. Miele dropped and reconfigured cycles for the w1986 as machines became more computerized, but in all honesty there is little to nil the w1986 could do that the w1926 couldn't. IIRC the 1926 offered a soak cycle where as the 1986 did not.

The w1986 cemented the march Miele was making towards cycle driven washers. That is instead of choosing water temp, cycle, and spin speed, much was preset already by choice of cycle.

Units offered for auction were some of the last "true" built like a tank, no honeycomb drum, lots of water using Miele washers.

Do you think?

These Models or Similar Age (Miele) Machines, would have any problems with bearings? I know these are built a lot better. But, seeing as I'm not one to know, much of anything (at all) about Miele appliances, I just have a bad feeling, that after a few years of use, I could see myself having to replace parts, and such.
