In Europe families are being warned certain Miele washing machines could explode sending shards of glass across kitchen floors. More than 50 incidents of appliances exploding are being investigated in Europe. In some cases glass doors are shattering, while other owners have reported the doors simply falling out of their housing.
Late last month Miele chose not to respond to claims they are deliberately price gouging Australian consumers.
In some cases Miele products are up to $8,000 more expensive for the same products in Australia than in the USA.
