My husband is away until the end of the week and uncontactable and I will need a solution by the weekend....I have found this site very useful. Initially I had thought for about £250 I could get a decent new washer and be done with it. However I see there is a lot more to consider and I am not going to get a decent washer for that price. Having read your opinion and daughters review on the Tricity Bendix I am wondering if I am better off repairing this one. It seems the parts are still available and my FIL and husband are pretty good at DIY (though FIL didn't think he was up to bearings) so is it worth trying to keep this one going - I reckon it could get repaired for under £250. It is 6kg, 1400 spin and 15 options including wool. The question is are they reliable? No one posting on here about them so guess they are? Or not many about now discontinued? I have read on your site that they are the budget end of Electrolux which I believe is a reliable brand. I am loath to dispose of it but don't want to spend money getting it repaired only to break again. A washer in my house is going to have a tough life but I promise to look after it better next time.
I have emailed a repair company through your links and will wait to hear from them. I would really value some opinions on whether this Tricity Bendix is worth saving?

Tricity Bendix were a great washing machine for the price and my recommended budget machine until they stopped making them. Maybe they were too reliable for the cheap prices. If you need to replace it and want a similarly cheapish machine I would look at a Zanussi.
