There goes your argument. A properly designed and made device should last for years.

No need for a £9.99/month service plan/warranty that is not worth the paper it is written on.

Long long time ago I was a kitchen hand in a commercial restaurant. The dishwasher we used there (no no, the mechanical one, not me) would go through 5 cycles an hour (a single cycle would only take 10 minutes or so because, well, it ran hotter and harder than a consumer dishwasher). So a typical day could see the dishwasher doing 30+ cycles a day, 900+ a month. Having some-sort of in-built monitoring and auto-callout for predictive issues (worn parts etc) could be very useful in that case.
