Can anyone recommend a washing machine repairer? Ours has just decided it won't spin or turnover..

Thanks..

Thanks Rainbow.. hopefully it's just the carbon brushes worn out (12 year old Hotpoint).

Fitting brushes isn't that difficult. I do ours! (If I can do it, anyone can!)

Look up "Fitting brushes on [model]" on the www, there will be a lot of advice online!

Hi Al. I always use PETER FYSH for my domestic repairs, he worked for the old EEB
as a repair man for many years and when we were denationalised he went on his
own. He is a first class electrician and repair man and not a rip off merchant
either. I recommend him all the time and have never heard anyone say a bad word
about him.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

Thanks again..

I would try changing the brushes myself.. but there's a chance that might not be it.. and I really need it fixed right and ASAP..

Yes, I have often found it cheaper in the long run to get it done by someone who knows! I was changing a tap once and did the classic of dropping the spanner in the sink! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks to Rainbow's recommendation and a nice guy from DK Electrical I've now got a working washing machine again.. as expected it was the brushes and a loose contact.. all done in 20 minutes (it would have been longer, but the tea had just brewed when he rang the bell) and very reasonable.

I have just had my machine repaired and serviced by Carl....DK Appliances.....have been using Carl for more years than I care to remember.....my nearly 10 year old machine is now very silent again and at a fraction of the cost of a new washer/dryer.....highly recommend Carl
01553 768557......evening 01553 842319 and mobile 07775 858255.......first number may go to answerphone but Carl is very good at calling back.
My sister and I both use Carl for getting us new machines when all else fails and very good repair service.
