GOOD NEWS!! I found the key I needed, the packaging didn't even have a name on it (so we're supposed to know) From what I can remember the helpful man said it's a TORT KEY??? don't know the correct spelling.
By sheer determination I thought I must try my nearest DIY store which is LEYLANDS on Southwark st opposite the Menier chocolate theatre. They seem to stock alot of things there. Its my first point of reference, then the useless B&Q on the Old Kent Road
is my last resort.
Having got the key and do what I needed to do - I stumbled over another problem after that. The fixtures from pump, filter and waste pipes were all secured by a metal clamp.
I stopped there and have decided to rest till Sunday to come back to it.
It's a damn fine machine of 10 years-Bosch are so reliable.
My daughter of 9years carelessly washed the wrong mat- she washed the door mat and not the bath mat that I asked her to. The door mat is made of millions and trillions of coconut hair.
I know I'll laugh at this some day....but that day is far from taday.
