I think my washing machine is breaking down, goes ok until the Rinse & spin, just stops and I've to turn it on and off about 3-4 times before it finishes and even then clothes aren't properly washed. >:o( O:| I just want to get a new one, hubby thinks it could possibly be fixed??! Don't know how I would even source a local plumber??!!

Hi, When this happens to my machine i usually take out the filter at the bottom of the machine and clean it. Put some towels down because you will have a small flood when you take filter out. This usually works for me anyway .HTH :wv

Yep it happened to me last month. We checked the filter and it wasn't blocked it was actually a bobbin from one of my DD's wrapped around the motor and I was told if I had kept on using it I would have broken it totally. :wv
