Hoover Six 1100, Repair Or Replace?

As I say here my machine is 12 years old. This is the first time i can remember it being faulty, but 12 years is I imagine getting near the natural lifespan of what was a fairly cheap washer-dryer (£300? I can't really remember).

So is it best to dump it, as will probably break down again at increasing frequent intervals if it mends at all, and modern machines are much more efficient so I'd save that way anyway? Or give this one another go (given it costs £60 just to call someone out and it might be irrepairable). Thanks.

It's the most common worry, arguably 12 years is great for what it cost and you could easily argue a case for replacing it. On the other hand it might run a few more years if it was repaired but as you point out, it could easily cost almost £100 just to replace a relatively cheap part so it's a gamble.

Despite your AEG misgivings I decided to take the plunge and buy one of theirs (mainly because I'm so bored of researching washers I couldn't bear to ditch that option and start looking again). It has a 5 year guarantee so at least I'll get that long out of it. Just a shame my old one which would probably last a few more years with a small repair will end up on the tip.

If spending within that budget range I would still buy an AEG kee, on the basis they are still decent for what they cost and hopefully nothing will get stuck inside (which is the responsibility of the users anyway) plus drum bearings should last a reasonable time. Chances are, despite the disgraceful unrepairability, for the cost you'll probably be OK.
