With many households creating at least one load of laundry per day, the average washing machine suffers serious wear and tear. When one of the many serviceable parts fails, a decision will need to be made whether the product would be economical to repair.

Our team are always on hand to offer advice on matching up the correct replacement items with the machine being repaired. Contact us with any queries.
