Crowthorne Homeowner
The engineer came to repair my washing machine because the bearings had worn. He spent about 2 hours putting in a new drum, and an electrician joined him. When he had finished, the engineer told me to watch the first wash. I asked him if he was expecting any problems! He said, "No." When I put on a wash in the evening, three quarters of the way through, there was a sudden sound and the machine stopped working. I phoned the following morning and was told there was a 3 day wait until an engineer could come out. I was not happy with this and sent a letter of complaint. The lady from customer relations was very good and followed up the engineer until be came back 3 days later. It was found that the fan belt had come off. The engineer and a more senior one put it back, and my machine has been fine since.

Our new Gas boiler kept us warm last winter. The water is hot too.
When we did have a problem the engineer was quick to put it right and to show us how to do so next time.
