The lifter in your washing machine drum is responsible for agitating your clothes so that the dirt disperses and your laundry becomes clean. If the drum lifter is broken not only will your clothes not get as clean as they should, but you could also risk creating tears in the items that you’re trying to clean. In a similar vein you could lose socks and small articles of clothing through the gap a missing lifter creates.
Our video team has once again been at work to bring you our latest offering which demonstrates how to replace the pre-motor and HEPA filters in the VEC-21 Pet Essentials cleaner.

As a retailer one of our business objectives is to increase customer satisfaction by ensuring that you get the right product every time. In the world of spare parts we acknowledge that it can be a bit confusing to find the correct part the first time around.
We carried out a piece of research in November 2009 that looked at how much repair companies would charge to carry out five common repair tasks. The idea of the research was pretty straightforward: to highlight the potential cost saving that our customers were making by fixing it themselves. The research was carried out fairly. I personally obtained quotes from 3 well-respected national repair firms for the five tasks. They were all given the same make and model of appliance to fix and the same location for the job. I then averaged the quotes and compared this to the cost of buying from eSpares (including delivery) to derive the cost savings. You can see a summary of the findings here.
Since launching our product reviews functionality in November 2008 we’ve had 22,951 reviews left on our website. Every day it’s my job to read all the new reviews on our site to see what our customers are saying about us. We’ve learnt a lot from our customers through the reviews they leave; they’ve told us what we can be doing better and which help videos we should shoot next. We’ve made changes to our business based on the feedback we’ve gotten, it’s been truly invaluable.
The weather in London has been slightly less abominable in the last few days, people have been venturing outside with little more than t-shirts and the odd sunbather (perhaps misguided) has been spotted in green areas. Spring must be upon us.
I’ve got to hold my hands up to say that I’ve never fitted a lawnmower motor before. To be quite frank I would have found this task daunting and may even have considered just replacing the whole lawnmower if the motor bit the dust. Read more

After the coldest UK winter in 30 years it’s been a relief that spring is finally breaking. In preparation for spring/summer 2010 we shot a series of lawnmower repair videos in February which we’re slowly launching in our Advice Centre and on the eSpares YouTube Channel.
Certainly my favourite part of this video series is watching Helen try to maintain her enthusiasm for lawnmowers; outside in the cold, wet and dark wilds of London.
