    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    It's usually E19 with these machines (heat exchanger outlet solenoid - the thing with the blue plug at the bottom right of your picture) If you search on that basis you'll find loads of threads detailing various bits and bobs to do with fixing them. This one here...

    Does it look wrong to not tile one wall of the bathroom?

    If you were re-tiling then you can get away with a lot as you could possibly just pack out with a bit of extra tile adhesive etc. But because you want a paint finish, it's really difficult to hide anything. I'm finding it hard to picture ripping tiles off a plasterboard wall and being able to...

    Siemens dishwasher E23 error

    As you suspect, the discolouration is grease and gunge from the wash. There's a little moving plunger thing in the rectangular bit at the top. Some of sort of air admittance/vent valve. It's tricky but you can clean it out although it won't outright stop the machine working. Your Siemens...

    Does it look wrong to not tile one wall of the bathroom?

    There's no way plasterboard will survive tile removal unless the person who set them did a really bad job!

    Knauf loft roll insulation products

    Well, exactly. I went ahead and ordered 60m2 of both the 100mm and 200mm stuff from B&Q (and got 10% off on their weekend offer)... I was just wondering if there was any difference between the two products other than the price and the packaging.

    Does anyone know what's the difference between these?: B&Q sells Knauf Eko Roll https://www.diy.com/departments/knauf-eko-roll-loft-insulation-roll-l-7-28m-w-1-14m-t-100mm/182146_BQ.prd Wickes sells Knauf Space Roll...

    Bedroom ceiling fans

    There is actually a separate earth terminal on the ceiling rose behind the choc block

    Bedroom ceiling fans

    Right, decided to go ahead and buy a fan. It was setup exactly as you described. L + N to the IR control box, then N + fan L + light L out. I ditched off the choc block and used wagos instead because 1 - it's naff and 2- it's a royal pain to connect the wires to it with the motor dangling from...

    My builder has cut part of the base of my new WC and bidet

    Yeah, not really knocking the guy, he obviously knows his stuff and from what I've seen, genuinely goes out of his way to get the best possible result for his customers according to their budget.

    Bath recommendations please....

    I'm well pleased with mine - about as enthusiastic as you can be about a bath. Glad I went for the 800 wide - I don't have an actual bath very often rather than a shower but when I do, the extra shoulder width is well appreciated.

    Bath recommendations please....

    I fitted a 1700 x 800 Carronite Quantum recently on recommendation from a mate who runs a kitchen/bathroom business. Paid a bit more than your budget for it but my view is that barring major problems it's going to be there for maybe 15-20 years or possibly longer (and I have no plans to move on...

    My builder has cut part of the base of my new WC and bidet

    That MJ Tiff guy is funny.. I watched a few of his vids. In one of them where he's about to rip out a shower and rebuild he goes on a bit of a rant about people telling him you shouldn't use plasterboard in a wet area but he's been ripping them out and replacing for 20 years and never seen a...

    Bedroom ceiling fans

    Hi all, With the night time temperatures we’ve been having recently I’ve decided I’d quite like a ceiling fan in 2 of my bedrooms. Anybody fitted one and have any comments to make about what to look for/avoid etc? Main things I have questions about are: Ceiling height – Like most, my bedroom...

    3 wires in a dimmer switch

    This image just gave me instant flashbacks to my childhood in the 80s as we had them in the house I grew up in. Haven't seen one of these dimmers in probably 35 years and forgot they existed. Thanks
