Would you kindly let me have the make and model number of your appliance please - Ian.

I have cleaned out the filters

Many thanks - now could you give me an extra bit of information - if you look at the label in the door it will give you a PNC number that is either 9 or 11 numbers long. Could you let me have this too as this gives me the appliance specifications. Secondly how old is your machine and is the drum free to spin or slightly stiff?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
916 096 169 0 4
About 6 yrs old
Slightly stiff: perhaps there is a belt that is trapped? Squeaky when I rotate drum manually.
Expert:  bonzaco replied 8 months ago.

OK first thing to do is take off the top of the appliance - just a couple of screws at the back and then a gentle tap on the front edge and the top should lift off - once you have it off come back to me.

Thanks Ian. I'll need to get back to you later / another time, when I have my daughters boyfriend around to help me do that. OK?
Expert:  bonzaco replied 8 months ago.

Thats fine - I'm on most days after 5pm so just ping me on here and it'll be routed through to me.

Hi there. I've got a friend with me now. He's got tools and is taking the top off now. What next please?
