    Whilst there may be some very good gems of wisdom on here, please be very very careful before following any of it.

    I've just had a search for a few things and looked at the questions posted and answers given.

    Firstly, looked for WM and BEARINGS - this is the Hotpoint range of washing machines and I know from experience that the bearings are an issue.

    Of the 12 to 15 I looked at, with just 1 exception (which was truthful advice on removing a specific nut & pulley), all the others basically said , don't do it yourself, you need special tools, call an engineer - expect to pay £100 to £150, a nightmare, not for the novice, etc. etc.

    Well I'm a novice, I didn't have any special tools, it wasn't nightmare (IT WAS QUITE DIFFICULT never having done it before) but I did it for £6 (cost of the bearings & seals) when the engineer wanted £95 because it would take him 90 minutes to 2 hours.
    It took me just over 4 hours - although whilst in bits I fully cleaned the tub and drum and door seal and most hoses and soap drawer from all the build up of powder/scum/dirt/mould etc. - something the engineer wouldn't have done.
    One of the answers even said "We do it for £XXX" and included his phone number so watch out for traders selling their wares.

    Secondly I had a look at MONDEO, found an answer to a problem that was potentially very dangerous, likely to make matters much worse and make any costs involved in repairs spiral to 10, 20 , maybe even 100 times what they would have been before following the advice given.

    Thirdly, having had a quick look around some of the general TV fault responses, I'd rate most of them as TOTAL PANTS !
    There are 10 types of people in the world. ‹(•¿•)›

    OK

    I accept it may not be to every ones taste, but it has saved me money and I guess it will save others money as well

    instead of coming on here and having a rant at what was a genuine attempt to help others,

    why not add your vast knowledge to the database on the site and help others as well
