Anyone know anything about washing machines?
The seals are a consumable, buy a new one online and fit it yourself.Posted 4 years agoBuckoMember
Exactly the same thing happened to our Hotpoint about 2 months ago. The father-in-law said he’d fixed a few washing machines in the past and if I bought the part online for £25 he would fit it for me…
…took him 6 hours with loads of swearing and blood stains around the seal.
Just something to think about.Posted 4 years agolastyMember
AND ….. can be done DIY – BUT – Hoover/candy tend to be a one piece cabinet, i.e. difficult to access because you cant get the front off. Best way to tackle it DIY would be to remove the lid, remove front control panel and go in from the top or bottom, possibly with the machine laid on its back – all depends on the locations of the tightening screws for the seal. Most machines are pretty straightforward but hoover/candy stuff can be a real bar-steward, expect to pay £60-80 or so for some bod to scuff his pinkies. Needs sorting though and DONT use it as ive seen dozens of these with blown boards due to a seal perishing and leaking onto the electrics …Posted 4 years ago
I have my own way but you would need special tools …. 😉
