    Hoover New Wave 1100 problem **update**

    Hoover New Wave 1100 problem **update**

    Just to update you on this machine, we have had an engineer out tonight and he has said the board has an error on it, which means the machine thinks its full all the time. He said he could replace the board which would be around £90 but that something is causing the board to go, so if it goes...

    Hoover New Wave 1100 problem **update**

    Hi Ive selected No 10, and you can hear the machine trying to do something like a humming, but the drum doesnt move at all. I dont think the drain pump is running. Trying rinse only is the same, the machine is humming, but nothing else is happening, the drum doesnt rotate, and the pumps...

    Message for Breezer

    Hi Breezer Sorry to make you blush, hehe. I doubt very much that both would be on at the same time, but I will remember what you have said and make sure they arent on together. I will let you know how I get on when I finally get the machine and its running. Thanks again Catherine

    New Dishwasher - how to do the waste

    Hi again Breezer My hubbie has checked the long waste pipe and unforuntely it just isnt secure enough to have anothe pipe coming off it, so I think at the mo the best bet would the little piece that juts off the 1/2 bowl drainer. The wter inlets come in across ways, so how can he a t...

    Dishwasher not working properly after being stored

    Hiya again Well the machine has been stripped (sides, back and front off) and guess what - more chewed wires, so once my hubbie is home from work he is going to either tape the wiring up or cut and block it. There doesnt seem to be any burnt parts, the motor looks fine and runs okay, as...

    Great idea for beading, instead of the wooden stuff

    Hi We have just replaced our carpet floor tiles in the bathroom with the Florentine Blue Tile Loc Wooden Floor from B&Q, yes it was a pain to fit, but when it came to the beading, obviously wooden beading doesn't bend round the toilet and sink, so heres a great idea which someone else told us...
