Found these papers and thought they would be perfect for this image but just couldn't get it to work. That is why I used the strips and frames and it looks better but still not sure.
Anyway, my washing machine saga continues. The engineer called yesterday morning, for the assessment, only he hadn't been told that. Said the springs that hold the drum were broken, so he replaced them. Thought it was a bit bouncy, so replaced the suspension. Tried to fit the drawer after clipping the casing back together but ended up replacing the casing as well. Then he repositioned the brushes. Told me to be careful using the washing machine as he needed two clip on brackets to hold the springs and as they had to be ordered, I won't get them until Thursday of next week. Told him he was having a laugh. Fixing my machine and then more or less telling me to try not to use it. Bet he doesn't have three children with piles of washing. Anyway he put cable ties on and said that should hold it. He is also going to try and get me a new lid as it was the springs that damaged it.
Well I put on my first wash and everything seemed to be going ok, so thought I would nip out quickly to the supermarket for a few things. Checked the machine before I went out only to see the prewash button was flashing. So cancelled the program and switched it off but it didn't clear so rung the repair line again. Back came the engineer although I had to leave him in the house as the girls needed picked up from school. Came back just as he was finishing and he said he needed to replace the module. This is the memory board for the machine apparently. Told him he would have been better saying it couldn't be fixed and got me a new machine. His reply was they don't replace the machines if it can be fixed and as my machine is 6 - 7 years old you can still get parts. At least all it is costing me is the monthly payment of £8.19 as insurance cover, as he told me the call-out fee would be about £120.00 for a machine of this age and then the parts would be charged after that. Knew I took that cover for a reason. Sorry to bore you but just thought I woould let you know what happened.
Thanks for popping by and visiting. It is much appreciated.
