Martin saved nearly £200!
Dishwasher broken down, repair man says to get a new one as it would cost nearly as much to repair as getting a new one. So,I looked up the part on e-spares, purchased it for £45 (it turned up bang on time!) So it really saved me around £150-£200. Also, watched the video on the web site which helped me with the repair!
It may sound faster to buy a new appliance or call an engineer, but by the time you’ve walked around the shops, picked out a new one and had it delivered, or had a call out the waited for the actual fix, you could have just fixed it yourself!
Mike enjoyed his quick fix!
The part i wanted was found in a few minutes and ordered a few minutes later, very simple process. Part arrived on time and was fitted in seconds!
