This video will give you some inspirational ideas to do with your old washing machine drum. The right to repair is a fundamental right of consumers. for too long energy certificates have not been correct because there has been no thought into the life span of your appliance.

How can the likes of which magazines and other organizations issuing certificates on machines without any thoughts going into the lifespan of the appliance? The right to repair rules are designed to tackle "built-in obsolescence" where manufacturers deliberately build appliances to break down after a certain period to encourage consumers to buy new ones. ... Many consumers have complained that goods don't last long enough, and they can't be fixed in the home for an economical cost.



New French labeling system

The new French labeling system is the right way forward in my view and this should be used in conjunction with our existing system.

An indice de réparabilité – ‘repairability’ score – has been a compulsory feature of these appliances in France since January 1, 2021.

It consists of a score out of 10 which tells consumers how easily a product can be repaired at the time that they buy it.

Lower numbers and a bright red label indicate an appliance that is not repairable, while higher numbers and green labels suggest that a machine can be fixed easily.

In this way, the government hopes to extend the life of household appliances and reduce waste.



what is the ‘Right to repair’ law

‘Right to repair’ law will make it easier to fix appliances

New legislation aims to make appliances last longer and reduce e-waste. Here’s all you need to know about your right to repair.

The UK produces more e-waste (electronic waste) per person in the form of discarded appliances and electronics than any other country in the world except Norway, according to the Global E-Waste Monitor. Now, a new ‘right to repair’ law aims to tackle the scale of the problem by making household appliances like washing machines, washer dryers, tumble dryer etc.

Fact: Britain consumes nearly 4 million washers a year (a mind-blowing number) and over 90% is imported causing more co2 emotions from shipping.

Manufacturers are now required to make spare parts available for appliance repair for a minimum of seven to ten years after an appliance stops being manufactured. (This will only be good if they stop producing sealed drums as an example.) if the part is not economic to repair what is the point of supplying it!

What is right to repair?

“The regulations require spare parts to be made available for these washing machines for ten years, Olivia Jamison, partner at law firm CMS.  explains for electronic displays, all the spare parts must be available for seven years, whereas for washing-machines it is 10 years."

However, the new ‘right to repair’ law doesn’t specify how spare parts should be priced and Green Alliance’s Libby Peake points out that more needs to be done to make repairing appliances more affordable.
