    Thanks Paul,

    One of your videos gave me the confidence to replace a broken drive belt in our tumble dryer.

    Enjoy a few beers on me.

    Hi Paul,

    I have an Indesit washer dryer, model IWDC 6125. My next door neighbours very kindly gave it to me a few years ago.

    I only use the washing machine part of it because the few times that I used the tumble dryer, several years ago, it seemed to shrink my clothes. I’m not bothered by this, I don’t need a tumble dryer.

    I started the washing machine as normal today. It seemed to be fine. I put on some headphones and started boiling some potatoes. After not that long, I smelt a burning smell in the kitchen and I couldn’t tell whether it was something that had been stuck on the bottom of the saucepan or whether it was coming from the washing machine.

    Because I had had my headphones on, I couldn’t tell whether the washing machine has been working as normal. But when I inspected it, and turn my music off, I noticed that the washing machine wasn’t making any noises and nothing was moving The green on/off light was still on. The red door lock was Not lit. The start/stop green light was lit.

    I thought perhaps I had been mistaken when I thought I had set it running, so I pressed the start button again and it flashed Orange so, looking at my booklet, I thought I had made it pause. So I pressed it again and the start/pause light went back to green but nothing else happened. I was able to open the door and the washing was wet. So it obviously had started it, but then it had stopped again. Or maybe I had stopped it myself, thinking that it hadn’t started, and putting it on pause. I can’t remember whether I had purposefully tried to pause it, when I smelt the burning smell.

    I waited over half an hour because in the booklet it says it goes into standby mode after half an hour. I thought perhaps after the half-hour, it would reset itself or do something.

    But no. It’s about 6 hours later. I have tried to get it to go again by briefly pressing the on/off switch as suggested in the booklet, and then starting it off again using the start/pause button, but I hear a faint click in the machine, which normally happens I think, when I press start, but now nothing else happens.

    I’m reluctant to use the dishwasher which is next to it, in case there might be some impact if something has burnt out at the back, or a pipe is blocked or whatever. They are both plugged into the same socket. The dishwasher is attached directly to the socket and the washing machine is attached to the same socket via an extension lead.

    At some point I decided to switch the programme to see if that would work. I put it onto ‘drain’ as I thought that shouldn’t be too drastic. But it didn’t do anything then either.

    The two green lights are still on and it is now about 6 hours later or more. The washing is still inside and wet. I’m not sure what to do. Should I turn the machine off at the socket? I have tried to turn the machine off using its on/off but nothing happens.

    Maybe it is fine and I just pressed it and paused it and messed up the cycle when I shouldn’t have, mistakenly believing that it wasn’t working properly, but perhaps it was, and perhaps I just happened to turn it off at a time when it was going to be quiet anyway.

    But I think the burning smell might have made me want to interrupt the cycle. I can’t quite remember the order of events. But perhaps I just need to turn it off at the socket and start it again and it will be fine? But a bit reluctant to turn it off at the socket as then I will be tempted to turn it back on again and if there is some kind of electrical fault or something burnt out, I’m not sure it would be a good idea.

    So I will probably leave it on overnight. Check my fire alarm first 🙂

    Probably repeated myself a little bit, sorry.

    Such a great idea, helping people, with your knowledge of appliances. Thanks 🙂 well done. Looking forward to buying you a beer.:)

    Thank you so much in advance for your help and don’t worry if you don’t have time or there’s not enough people available to help or whatever.

    Thank you!

    I would like to buy you a beer anonymously, I think I should be able to do so without giving you an e-mail address. How would I go about this?

    Thanks Paul for the videos. Helped me to dismantle my tumble dryer and to remove the frayed drive belt. Will buy you a beer and try to buy the new belt from you too if you stock it.

    How to repair were unable to supply necessary part but were incredibly helpful in my search so I would definitely recommend.

    This video saved me money and time (waiting for a repair person), the culprit was a broken piece of a dish all the way inside the machine, your video showed me exactly how to get to it and put the dishwasher back together. Enjoy the beer and thank you 🍻 😊

    Hi, great videos, I was just watching your hoover tumble dryer heating video – https://youtu.be/W62MlTwehik and noticed your ammeter for testing the current being drawn from the appliance. I am after a new one as the casing of mine has become brittle and come apart however I cannot find one anywhere. Is that a custom unit put together yourself or can I also purchase one myself? If so where can I get it. I would be very grateful if you could get back to me.

    Many thanks,

    Hi, I was hoping you could help me. I bought John Lewis & Partners JLBIWD1405 Integrated Washer Dryer (actually Electrolux) only a couple of months ago. There is a scratching noise coming from the drum and 2 Electrolux engineers, who were sent as it is under guarantee, insist it is a bra wire, even though we have not lost any or have any defective garments. They say the washer dryer needs to be scrapped. Is there anyway of repairing the machine? If not would you recommend any particular integrated washer-dryer without a sealed drum, as we can’t find any?! Thank you natasha
