Customer Question
I have an Electrolux Time...
I have an Electrolux Time Manager Ecowash 7kgm.It was on it's "spin"setting when there was a loud bang & it started to spin erraticaly...faster then slower...so I switched it off. I have now tried to rotate the drum & it makes a grating sound, quite loudly. I have not put a load of washing in as I dont need a load of wet clothes on my hands if it fails to work! Is this likely to be something that can be repaired for a reasonable price, or should I just get a new machine? I am aware call out fee + repair was quite expensive a couple of years ago.
