    lec fridge freezer 50/50 - problem - OUTSIDE ???

    before you go to any trouble, although i agree with the other posts, it seems to me that the best way to diagnose your problem would be to stand it in your house for a couple of days to see if it works there. if it does then you know that the advice is correct. if it doesn't well then you'll...

    Zanussi Brushes Length ?

    when rotating the drum by hand, could you hear a clicking sound from the motor with brushes in it? if so it's likely that the armature on the motor has failed and the motor will need to be replaced. if the motor is o.k. it should run even with as little as 8mm of carbon left. if the ends of the...

    help washing stuck in machine

    it's probably pushing against the glass and causing the lock to be not quite latched properly. drain off any water by gravity through the drain hose and then give the front panel a thump near the lock and it may just open. had this with a recent hoover machine two weeks ago.

    Hotpoint drum filling up with clean water

    if it is back filling then it would normally smell. it sounds more like one of your fill valves has a slight leak. either replace both of them or turn of supply to either overnght and use elimination to work out which one is faulty. they're only a couple of quid each.

    Whirlpool AWM 6100/s stops mid cycle

    if it stopped full of water then the noise you heard may have been your pump on it's last legs. reset the cycle and select drain only and see what happens. if it drains o.k. then it may not be the pump, and fido will probably be right.

    Bosch SRS4012GB - no water

    i'm sorry but i don't recognise the model number. can you tell me roughly how old it is. it sounds like a metering tank to sump blockage but the remedy is different if it's + 7yrs to if it's 2 to 3 years.

    Electric oven smoking!

    it was the electric thing that i meant. perhaps you should just turn it on with window etc open and let it burn off.keep an eye on it of course. sometimes if it's a split grill and you've only ben using half of it, the other half gets splashed. this then burns off when you eventually turn it on.

    Whirlpool built in dishwasher

    bearing in mind that all a dishwasher does is spray hot water, i think it's fair to say that the detergent is taking off the designs. to give it it's best chance do as tired guy says. get a good quality detergent with separate rise aid and you must make sure the salt it set at correct level.
