Especially as, given Miele's legendary reliability and QoS, one might have a
good chance of still enforcing statutory rights 5.5 years after purchase,
outside the guarantee but within the statutory limitation. (If the retailer
is still in business of course.) The 10 year guarantee, unlike most, gives
something significant additional to statutory rights.
If every domestic appliance had to have a 10 year guarantee by law, we might
have much less of a fridge (etc) mountain to dispose of.
