I've just read the only other review on this page & felt the need to defend this machine. I've had mine now for at least 4yrs. It has a quality look & feel to it - especially the door, which is mega sturdy & clicks closed first time every time. Ive had probs with previous machines in that you think you've closed the door, you walk away then come back to find the door hasn't closed properly, stopping the machine from starting up. My only gripe has been that all 3 of the original drum paddles came away from the drum. It was relatively easy to find spares & once replaced they've (all but one), stayed put. I was just in the process of sourcing more spares when I found this page & decided to write this review.
