My machine has died - can anyone point me to a decent repair engineer?

Thanks for any help!

What brand/model is it?
Some aren't worth mending, while Servis has gone into receivership.

Try Cliff - he's recommended somewhere else on this site and fixed my machine no problems.

Sorry don't have his number to hand right now.

please let us know how you get on, as our machine has just started making clonking noises on the spin cycle (like you've left a belt on trousers, but more like the bearings on the motor going).

Somewhat late, but may be useful for future searchers - I got my machine looked at by Lynne's Electrical in Walworth Rd. The engineer was helpful and friendly; he showed me the exploded motor in my machine and got the shop to call me with a quote. It turned out it was cheaper to buy a new machine (I checked the price of the part online - they weren't trying to scam me). Lynne's offered a range of machines at competitive prices (again, I checked), talked me through the options, and once I picked a new washer arranged for delivery and installation, which again was done by a friendly and professional engineer. Highly recommended.
