Washing Machine Repair
 
After a recent visit to Akbuk our washing machine decided to give up the ghost. It was the last day of our visit and was a Sunday so we couldn't get it sorted before we left so will have to get it looked at when we return.

Can anyone recommend a good washing machine repair man in Akbuk?

Dont know about akbuk Yogi, but there are several repair men in and around the town centre here.
If you can't get someone local then let me know and I'll get you a number and name.

I think giving up the ghost is an euphanism for " it is donald ducked " .

Just a hunch.

It doesn't pump out.

Washes and spins OK just won't get rid of the dirty water.

If it's a good machine like Arcelik or Beko get the manufactures service guys out to fix it. You get original parts and a guarantee for a reasonable price. (and a bit of piece of mind)

It's an ALTUS.

Is that a good make or a cheap and cheerful brand?

Can't help you with whether it's a good amke or not, but I'm sure the Arcelik guy's van has Altus on it as well.

Hi Yogi
It will take you or anyone else on the forum who has the same problem about 15 minutes to " repair the problem".
Usually your filter is clogged up with hairs, fibers off your clothes and anything else that was attached to your washing.
This filter is usually attached to the end of the output pipe which is connected to the unit under your sink.
Unscrew the pipe ( you may get a tiny bit of water leakage), pull off the filter and I suspect it will be clogged up. Clear the blockage, push the filter back onto the output pipe and screw it back into place.
If you don't have a filter on your output pipe your washer will have a filter on the front of the washing machine. This is located under the front panel at the bottom of the washer. Pop the bottom front panel off and it is located at the bottom right hand side. Unscrew it and clean it. Then replace it.

I hope you took your washing out before you left.

I know there are unscrupulous people in this trade and I will not see anyone ripped off.

I hope this helps

Ron :smile:
