Washing Machine Repairs

Should you use the manufacturer or an independent repairer?

Often independent repairers are both faster and cheaper, providing the repairer has experience with your brand of washing machine.

Independent repairers will give quotes prior to ordering parts to ensure you can make an informed choice.

But first check whether your washing machine is actually broken. A good repairer will do a quick check for you over the phone.

Types of Washing Machines

The different types of domestic washing machines are front-loader; traditional top-loader; or a high efficiency top-loader.

  • Front-loader is good if you are doing many loads of washing per week - if you lack space this type of washer can be stacked. Front-loaders are considered the most energy efficient because they use less water.
  • Traditional Top-loader is the cheapest machine to purchase with the added bonus you do not have to bend to load the clothing.
  • High Efficiency Top-Loader Combines the functionality of a front-loader with the styling of a traditional top-loader
